    Where’s good in BS1 for football?

    As someone who works in town but lives in BS3, I can give an honest answer here bud: avoid town at all costs. It's rubbish. Drawbridge is probably your best bet, but it's not great really. For the sake of a £5 UBER I'd suggest travelling the extra distance to Ashton Gate for the World Cup village. Euro 2016 was fantastic in there and this year the outdoor village looks great.
  2. These days it's quite common mate. Look at Serie A this season: Lazio have their 'old' badge on the home kit for the retro appeal, but the away and third kits have the 'normal' club crest. Last season, Roma had their 'normal' club crest of the home kit but the old 1900s 'lupa' wolf version on the away kit, to critical acclaim. Generally I think it's a marketing ploy to tug the heart strings of fans who look back to the 'olden days' as the glory years of kit manufacture.
  3. You might be correct there, suppose it depends on age, preferences etc. I drink in the Spanish and Lions usually and yet to meet anyone who doesn't prefer the robin badge. That said, I know a few lads with the city crest as a tattoo who aren't too pleased on hearing the badge change news!
  4. Appreciate your views Bar BS3, but I believe it's only on this forum where views are split. In my personal experience, I'd say our general/wider support base are largely prefer the robin badge. Speaking to fans reguarly in pubs pre-match, most favour the robin and have even stared campaigns to bring it back. Simply can't see that being the case to re-instate the current crest, should there be a badge change.
  5. Great news about the return of the old badge. So long as the kits aren't atrociously designed, I can see these flying off the shelves.

    We will have a new badge next season

    Really don't understand the culture in football of taking pride in the foundation year of a club. If City were only formed 10 years ago I'd still support them as my local South Bristol team over the sorry sack of sh1t north of the river. And if all the sags got to abuse us with is the year of our formation then they really are sad.

    Julen Lopetegui - Spain Manager Sacked (Merged)

    Selfish and bad timing for an announcement, but sacking him would be the worst possible thing the Spanish FA could do at this time.

    England players ask for Love Island to be shown in their bedrooms

    It's class, nice bit of trash TV after a hard day at work.

    Bristol Post reporting is dreadful. Never trust a headline this lot write until you've read the article in full.

    Boxing

    R.E. the Fury fight, very disappointed. We all expected a cake walk, but I was expecting at least 8 rounds where Fury got rid of the ring rust and showed off some of the skills he so prolifically boasts about and videos on his social media channels. Instead it was more like a charity boxing event with Fury clowning around with an opponent who simply turned up for the pay cheque. Fury looked domestic level at best and has a long way to go until he's back at the top again. Moments in that fight where he was wide open and more clinical heavyweights would have caught him clean. Poor Frank Warren must be mortified.

    Regardless of whether the rumors about Mayor Rees 'trademarking' the crest are true, I hope for one we do get a new badge, preferably with a robin. The less we have to do with our inept Council the better tbh. As other posters have said, the new Brentford badge is a great example, clean, tidy, eye-catching yet simple and modern. Hopefully we can get something similar.

    4% or 8th Favourite to win?

    Think we're pretty fairly placed on that graph. On a par with Portugal and Belgium who often fail to impress at major tournaments, despite impressive friendlies in the run-up. Surprised to see Peru so highly ranked, but otherwise can't complain with our position on there.

    Driving In Bristol Rush Hour

    Out of interest mate, do the signs state what are considered 'peak times' i.e. 7-9AM? I know a lot of people who've been fined for using a bus lane, even momentarily just to over-take, so appreciate why drivers may be wary.
