  1. And also for the Wolves game, announced as a football special.
  2. He was out on his feet and I don't think you can underestimate the effort that went into that sprint upfield in injury time. He ran like it was the first minute of the game and really relieved the pressure off the team at a vital time. Was one of the highlights of the night for me.
  3. I lost my season card on Saturday, so phoned to see if it had been handed in yesterday and today. Gave up after 20 mins yesterday and eventually got answered today after 30 mins. Supporter services can't check so have to put you through to the club shop (you can't get the club shop direct via the menu) to check if it's been handed in but once established it's not been handed in you need to go back through to supporter services to arrange a replacement. But they can't speak to each other and can't fast transfer you back. So I had to then dial supporter services again and wait in the queue again!!! Gave up after another 30 mins.
  4. Not done Napoli but have done Dortmund and Genoa / Sampdoria. Dortmund was okay but it was watching Germany v england so we didn't get the whole yellow wall experience. Definately recommend Genoa. We saw sampdoria v chievo last season and as you say feels like an English ground - a bit like a smaller Villa Park I'd say. It does make you realise what facilities we have at Ashton gate though (and in England generally). The ground is so dated with concourse areas smelling like an NCP car park, seats missing etc. I did love it though!
  5. One of my favourites for obscure grounds is Quick Boys of Katwyck in Holland. Went there day after the England game in Amsterdam last year and enjoyed that ground much better - think English non league ground but with fans letter off flares and bouncing around all game all with the back drop of huge sand dunes and the sea in the background. definately a theme of england games are the side trips for example another favourite is Albacete the day after the england match in Alicante. Loads of england fans welcomed into the away 'end' for free supporting Tenerife. Other than that my favourite is probably Boca Juniors - just a completely unique ground in an amazing area of Buenos Aires. Also enjoyed Bologna like some others have said.
  6. Birmingham, Norwich and Derby were diabolical performances??
  7. Yes, that was ridiculous, even more that the second time it happened having stopped him coming on for about a minute he then seemed to choose a random moment to wave him back on!
  8. Difficult to say as you are clearly one of those who is dissatisfied with where we are and how we've developed over the past few seasons. All I'd say is to take a step back and look at how sacking Johnson would be perceived by the rest of the football world. No one other than our own fans would say we're doing any thing other than performing at the level we should be or above it given our resources and the fact that as you say, selling our best players 'is what we do'.
  9. We're 11th in the league having sold our best 3 players. Where were your expectations pre-season?
  10. Same here; stayed in the one by the ticket collection point with Harry Maguire's family in there. Cracking atmosphere but shame we couldn't see more of the city. What a game though!
  11. I agree - championship all the way. Interesting to know if people really think we'd drop down to 10-12k crowds if we were in League 1. I don't think we would given where our crowds are now. I think an average (top half no promotion) season season in League 1 we'd be looking at 15-16k these days.
  12. My main memory is being pelted by what seemed like hundreds of coins on the way out of the ground but somehow not getting hit by any. And my mate doing a run along the top of the terrace when we scored the 4th that resembled Josimar's celebration in the 1986 World Cup. Great day!
  13. Five of us going. One night in Malaga, one night in Seville for us.
  14. I'd like to see the stat you're suggesting for all clubs for last season. As well as what you're saying, it would also show home fans average attendance for each team (I know it's tickets sold not actual attendance). My hunch is that we get less away fans at Ashton Gate than a lot of others as we're further away and give a fairly low allocation (and probably not all that attractive a game). I think this would push us up a place or two versus the standard attendance stats but be a reasonable way of looking at average attendances that as far as I'm aware never gets done.
