  1. There was loads of gas at the Gate today already..at least eight vans
  2. Don't know about the algorithm rating players, but was the weather really Clear and sunny?
  3. He is one of our most physical players. He would find himself most matches representing himself to the ref as to why he should not get sent off. He is also not a sure thing for ninety minutes yet. Maybe after Christmas once the squad has settled down and Palmer is match fit. As the squad barely recognise each other at the moment and some of the established players players have injury/form problems, choosing the captain is not easy.
  4. Well Wright seems to have got married in the break. Don't know if that counts as an injury, but it could be serious and long-lasting.
  5. There was a scuffle of some sort on the east side of the park where you are pinched in to the route to the garden centre. We were on the west side so legged it to the Plimsole Bridge. Loads of OB inc Five police horses Shocked the away support weren't held back. There had been signs of disorder earlier: bunch of Swans escorted through Spike Island clearly drunk+not co-operating never going to make it to the match on time. Noticed half a dozen S Wales police riot vans. Recognised them from the last Stokes Croft riot! Must have been expecting something.
  6. I feel a bit sorry for Hull for a couple of reasons: I lived there for a couple of years in the mid 90's. The only previous time I had been to a professional football match before my son made me take him to the Gate was at Boothferry Park. I was not at the prestigious KwikSave end for the tier 4 game, but with the Fulham fans. The game was dire but I was impressed by the Fulham crowd's wall of banter. When I say crowd I could say bunch - there was no direct train from London at the time. The home fans had "fish out" banners. There was some irony there as I expect the trawlers from hull had done their best to fish out stocks wherever they went before they sold out their quota. And then there was a home support walkout. What a laugh. Another reason to feel sorry for them is that the name Hull FC is taken, by people who do play catch with the squashed ball. Not even the same rules as they play down here, not that I ever worked them out. But then there is their away support gallery.
  7. The rule comes from the law of England and Wales: Sporting Events (Control of Alcohol etc.) Act 1985. No votes to be gained promising liberalisation to that.
  8. U19 and City 7s members receive two free tickets to a home match (member and one adult ticket) --> worth £20 to £30 in itself plus £5 to spend on tat in the shop. Absolute no brainer even if you only use it once.
  9. Mags was my son's favourite player. If it wasn't for Mags, Sasha might not have been dragged me into buying season tickets, shirts, cider etc. Also he did play some decent football in the League Cup run so you can't say his wages were wasted. Sash was certainly relieved when he came on v. Sheffield United as we seemed to have no defence before that. He was paid for being available for doing defending.
  10. Ahh, Kit Production. Top bloke!
  11. It's a little short of 0.95. One of my favourite quotients.
  12. As a glory hunting newbie, I don't know anything much about the club before this season. Looking on soccerstats I see that last year we had a relegation fight. We seemed to be letting in at least two every game any losing almost all of them. That was until about March when sometimes we stopped letting two in, and started not losing every game. I know in that Jan Transfer Window we got Bailey in. I really don't know as I was not following the club, but was it his influence that pegged back the leakage. Was it the last international break where he seemed to lose a yard of pace (which is not his best characteristic anyway)? Was he playing though an injury? He always seemed to be in charge of shouting and pointing, and I think we have missed that. Love Korey, but his shouting and pointing isn't as good.
  13. Not been there. Is this where the Bristol City Community Trust Holiday Camp is hosted in a couple of weeks time? If so are the pitches a safe distance from the buildings?
  14. There is a free magazine called Business Leader South West edition. SL is on the cover of the edition that arrived today. BLSW: What is your long-term ambition for Bristol Sport? SL: Good question because it's always evolving. Primarily I think it's marketing and media related. It's focusing on making sure the clubs that we are involved with make the best out of what they have. Whether that's improving the brand, the commercial opportunities or their community infiltration. If I was going to look back at it in five or ten years' time, I;d like to say that ensured more people participated in sport, more people supported in terms of coming to watch...
  15. Don't forget, she is Minister for Loneliness. Perhaps she wants the stadia to be totally empty.
