  1. Essex or Lancashire, wasn't it?
  2. Everyone's getting their Calvins in a twist about scraping into the wretched play offs while simultaneously insisting Marlon Pack is knackered, and so our midfield is knackered, and consequently, our attack and defence is knackered. And therefore our hopes are knackered. So, let's work ourselves into a frenzy about having three more bloody games to play, on top of the mandatory 46, when we are already knackered as it is. And Marlon's newbie ain't going anywhere, nor sleeping anymore, nor fetching his/her own breakfast/Farley's rusks, nor wiping his/her own fundamentals, this side of the play-off final, need I remind you. The tiredness is not done, yet.
  3. We've struggled to "show" Derby much over the years, other than that they "should" be beating us. Or at least not losing to us. I believe it is one win for us in eleven v Derby. Mind, that was a fine bloody win, that one. How we could do with Bobby, Bobby Reid this Saturday. Glass half full way of looking at it is, unbeaten in five v Derby.
  4. So there's progress and there's real progress. We are making progress now (hard to contest, even for the most curmudgeonly) you will admit, but not yet real progress. In the event of us one day moving to the higher plane of real progress, would that be the summit, the mountain-top, on the ladder of progress or merely one more rung up on an unending ascent, chasing a level of progress that can never be reached?
  5. More coverage in the London Times yesterday. Giles Coren taking a little swipe at us, the gormless polyester buying and wearing provincial proletariat punters, not the suits, ripping us off, in his Saturday 'Comment' piece. I think we would prefer attention from his sister, and can handle being jeered at by someone called "Giles."
  6. It's not a "national meltdown;" it's about 250 words on page 13 of The Times. Adjacent to a full page ad for Waitrose - never knowingly marking up 600% - featuring a chocolate teapot. Very apt? Hopefully not. So, you have managed on this thread to have a moan about others having a moan - an irony you are aware of - and suggest people are massively over-reacting by over-egging the extent of national coverage and reaction. Well played, sir!
  7. I thought that was Billy Vunipola?
  8. Brighton rocks (but more teeters than celebrates)
  9. They brought 1800 on New Year bank holiday in 2017 - when they were third in the table. They are smaller than Rovers, and more bland than beige
  10. It was 6000 on the Muller in December '83. They packed us in tight, as many will recall (we were all slimmer back then, mind). And stories in the Evening Post in the week leading up to that game about City fans and forgeries and police efforts to combat this. Rovers would barely bring 3000 to Ashton Gate at that time (hence the term: Blue Few). They began to bring more when they started to win or not lose and were top of the table.
  11. It all comes down to beans, and the bean counters. Bristol Sport bean counter: "So, let me just get this right: you want us to pay out some beans so that more of our clients can travel to Sheffield/Millwall/Hull and give beans to them? You want us to have less so they can get more? Are you mad?"
  12. It's what we're like in L1; well, I am. It's human nature.
