  1. No easy games (at this l - e - v - yaaaawwn - e - l ), although Wycombe appear to be as close as it gets to one (at this, er, "level"). Most Championship sides found Rotherham in 2016/17 relatively "easy," and that was at this "level," too. I'd pay to see Wycombe 2020 v Rotherham 16/17. Just to see who is/was worst.
  2. I forgot about them being 8th, and having a game in hand and all that. Good point. Be interesting if they get more than 23 points, then. And we will be taking six off them, no excuses. We only managed 4 points from the two games against Rotherham 2016/17 (statistically the poorest second tier side since the last World War, need I remind you) though, so we shall see.
  3. Bit harsh on babies. Babies get a bad rap on here, as do "school boys" and their "errors" and their being on here giving the big adults cheek and jip when they should be doing their "homework," or something more constructive during their holidays, or be in bed (with the lights off).
  4. Yippee, yippee aye aye, yay yay yay! C'mon, let's Dance Like Deano: Here's to more Happy Mondays.......
  5. If we have "overtaken" Stoke as a club, it isn't yet immediately obvious to the outsider looking in/on. Only promotion to the Prem - for us - or relegation to L1 - for them - might make it plain. But who would put money on us winning promotion from this level before Stoke? With our record/history? Not many would.
  6. On history it's no contest, although as I mentioned above they cannot match our highest ever finish in English football of 2nd. On fanbase, it's worth noting that when they pipped us to promotion in 2008, they averaged 16,800 that season. We averaged 16,200. Prior to reaching the Prem under Pulis, they hadn't averaged 20,000 or more since 1980 (when they were in the old 1st division). Relegated just five years after us, in 1985, they averaged 10,700 that season (in the top division), whereas we averaged 18,000 when relegated in 1980. They had a bigger support while rubbing Arse
  7. And the highest they have ever finished in English football is 4th (in 1936), compared to our 2nd. Good luck to them ever beating that.
  8. But who did Nicky replace - have we replaced him?
  9. Step forward that sacked head coach/smarmy chief executive /sacked scout/sacked stat analyst/other (probably sacked) former "behind the scenes" employee - well done sir/madam. And thank you.
  10. They'll do well to do worse than Rotherham 2016/17, who were relegated with 23 points from 46 games (5 wins, 8 draws). Only Barnsley in 52/3(18 points), Port Vale 57/8 (22 points), Watford 72/3 (19 points) and Sheff Weds 75/6 (21 points) managed to win fewer points - but as I need not tell you, that was in 42 games, not 46. Going by points per game and adjusting for three points for a win, Rotherham in 2016/17 are/were statistically the worst second tier side since WW2. And when we scraped past them that season 1:0 at home, our manager at the time talked up his brave decision to
  11. I remember my lad, about 9, not so long ago, playing in defence for a South Glos junior team. He tried to play it out from the back, on the deck, and when it went wrong, the coach and others shouting: "Get rid!" And other similar, enlightened instructions. The panic on the touchline seeped on to the field. I thought we had got rid of the "Get Rid!" Charles Hughes/bulldog thing in kiddies football?
  12. His father told him to mind his own business. Seems fair enough to me
  13. Fam today, but no Fam tomorrow
  14. Joe would be one of those footballers that yer insecure poorly educated, abuse-bantering munter type fans - and players! - cannot warm to, and feel threatened by, for reasons they cannot fathom, and a player that traditionally, upon seeing him in possession of a book, or a newspaper that did not contain a picture of a young woman dressed only in her pants, would label as "gay," and want to fill him in (or, in the 21st century, send him abusive messages via an electronic thingy).
  15. Not excited? What sort of a Dog are you, pal?
  16. Knowing that there are morons in this world, and that the digital world is where you can find them - and them you - 24/7, one wonders why intelligent chaps in the public eye spend any time on there.
  17. Let's send Joe some nice tweets, then. Tell him great he is, how much we miss him etc, and be very clear that he was only picked because he was the bestist player we had down the left. Then he'll tell the next newspaper that interviews him, and the headline will be: Bristol City fans were weally nice to me (after they had been weally howibble)
  18. When he takes us up, we will carry him shoulder high the length of Dean Lane, and he will be given the freedom of Dean Lane, allowing him to drive his sheep and/or squad along Dean Lane as he wishes (even during the school run). And Dean Lane will, of course, be renamed: Deano Lane.
  19. It is human nature to make swift, snap judgements, about all manner of things. As you yourself will have done about Deano, whether you put it on here for others to see or not.
  20. I know that "Ayling" feeling (who doesn't?), not sure I know the "Freeman" or "Freeman/Ayling" feeling though. Where, precisely, do you feel it?
  21. Yes. I can't see Chris Hughton up the Lions nursing a Thatchers.
  22. You can't get rid of the back pages, mate. Trust me, I know about this sort of thing. Not even Bristol Sports, Mark Ashton, Jon Lansdown and Lisa Knights could get rid of the back pages, even if they wanted to (the bastards). Unless they get rid of all of the pages, of course.
