    The Boxing Thread

    The Sun, The Mirror & Boxing News all reporting that Malignaggi v Conor McGregor will go ahead this year, likely April. Might have something to do with McGregor being banned in UFC, thus needing to keep fighting/make money somehow in the first half of 2019. Genuine beef between these 2 following the 'sparring video' incident, in which an out of shape Malignaggi was made to look a bit silly. Personally, this would be a much more interesting fight than the Mayweather one. Malignaggi has skill but lacks the power. At 40, if he could avoid an early KO defeat and take McGregor into the later rounds, it could be very interesting.

    Feel for the guy, but you can't put a price on your health - the most important thing of all.

    Nine nil in a semi

    I know it's still Man City and still a semi-final, but I do wonder what the return leg attendance will be like. I honestly don't think Ashton Gate would have been full if we'd have dropped 9 goals up there first leg.

    Bristol Arena (Merged)

    It's just ridiculous that Filton is being considered. The traffic around there is a constant nightmare with limited public transport. If on the originally planned site, you've got Temple Meads, busses, ferries, loads of on street and private car parking, not to mention half of totterdown, bemmy, hotwells etc could walk there if needed. We will never be able to rival or compete with Cardiff.

    9 Games Unbeaten and 'Boring' Football

    We are all supporters, but I suppose some people expect entertainment to be factored into the equation. Don't blame them; you pay good money, and as much as you want the lads to get 3 points, you don't want to watch utter dross.

    Club Crest to change? Fans Survey (Merged)

    Hear what you're saying Robbo and it's a valid point, but like it or not, Robins is our nickname and our beloved Robin/Bridge crest is iconic in our history and much loved by many of our fans. I'd be sad to see it not included personally. The early 90s Dry Blackthorn red kit, worn by Andy Cole/Junior Bent and Co for me was the best badge and kit combo we ever had.

    9 Games Unbeaten and 'Boring' Football

    It's a very touchy subject this i.e. do we take the 3 points and play dull, or do we try to play exciting footy with the chance of conceding/losing? I know a few fans who've actually stayed away from the Gate lately as, despite our unbeaten run, the football isn't overly enjoyable to watch. Can't blame them to be honest, but what do you do?

    Bristol Airport parking

    This post is rather prudent as I was just about to post a question myself! To address your point first, I've just paid £32 to park for 3 days in Silver zone. I actually don't think it's that bad, plus your car is secure and on CCTV 24/7 with staff present at all times. This isn't the same with nearby car par-parks; just have a look at recent horror stories where local hotels/firms (including the infamous Airport Tavern) move peoples cars to remote country lanes, no security, no CCTV, people returning from holidays and no idea where their cars are, no staff to contacts etc etc On the tangent then, my question was: When booking the Silver Parking, I was asked how many people would be in my car. I just put myself, but may want to pick up a few people en-route. Will I be penalized if I rock up to park the car with 4 passengers?

    Lee Johnson Praise Thread

    Spot on. This is why a lot of fans are still disenfranchised - but that said, what were people expecting with our limited budget and lack of backroom experience.

    The Boxing Thread

    It is a shame, but in reality, the fight is 5 years past it's sell-by date anyways, and can we really blame Khan for chasing a big title fight on American soil for millions of dollars, rather than facing Brook domestically? That said, can't see anything other than a Crawford KO victory!

    The Mascot Experience

    Have to say, when it comes to hospitality (even before the new stadium) the club were fantastic and so professional. Ironic really when you consider how inept other aspects of the business can be. I was also a mascot many, many years ago, 1994 v Tranmere Rovers. Even today I can still remember it all, brilliant stuff.

    8 unbeaten & 16 points

    Can only comment on the matches I attended.

    8 unbeaten & 16 points

    Hit the nail on the head for me. With such a great unbeaten run on paper, the performances, bar yesterday's, have been diabolical. Brentford was dire and managing to beat a 9 man Rotherham team 1 nil isn't exhilarating stuff.

    The Boxing Thread

    Not sure it was a dive in my personal opinion, Mayweather hit him quite hard, and the poor kid was devastated in the end, crying in the ring. Just a weight class and skill set above what essentially is a child kick boxer. None the less, an out of shape Floyd got paid $9mil for under 3 mins easy work. If organisations are stupid enough to pay the guy such sums, can you blame him?

    Further update: Mayweather cannot be located, show has been put on hold. Pundits unsure as to whether this is due to timings (lots of 1 round KOs on under card) or whether something more sinister is happening. Either way, only 2 more fights until the main event and Floyd isn't in the arena, nor can be located.
