  1. I wouldn't have thought so. I think the comedy is BBC Radio 4 at 6.30 pm weekdays, and also Radio 4 Extra.
  2. This time last season, Bobby Reid had scored seven goals. Bless him.
  3. When both Sheffield clubs were in Division 3 in the 79/80 season, 49,000 rocked up to Hillsborough for the derby match on Boxing Day! And the season before last they averaged 27k, more than we have averaged in our history. But we are catching up, a bit, averaging 20k plus. Some way to go yet, though!
  4. 24% possession for Cardiff today. And 2 corners! Jolly well done to them for that. I wonder how long it took them to take their throw-ins this week? I'm sure Colin will have spent much of last week telling them to get on with it and not take so long.
  5. There's a hold up on the M32, between Hambrook and Eastville, cos there's a "bull" on the road. Or did they say "bullshit" between Hambrook and Eastville? Either way, he's trying to get away from the "dark side" and the 6500 g4sholes trudging back to their Eastville slums. Will keep you updated if and when the bull makes it south and over the river.....
  6. It's another example of their preposterous self-aggrandisment and delusion. "Stadium" originally tended to denote something big, bigger than other venues hosting the same sort of thing.
  7. Our average in 2013/14 was 11,900. The first game that season, following relegation, was just under 14k v Bradford. SO'D soon brought that level of enthusiasm and "loyalty" down a bit - we didn't win a league game until October 26th. Wonder when Rovers last had a 14k crowd following a relegation?
  8. If you have small home attendances and so no money and there is no-one remotely interested in giving you money, and therefore have an old, shite ground instead of what you long for ie a new, shiny ground, you console yourself by saying you have "soul," and you ease your bitter envy of your hated superiors/one-time-rivals by calling their shiny, new ground a "bowl." A "bowl" incidentally is a ground where the corners are filled in to provide enough seats for all the people that want to watch games at that ground. Rovers don't need a "bowl" or the corners filled in with seats (or tent
  9. Rovers: League 1 and 2 mediocrity, or Banana League success?
  10. Villa lose at Millwall. Maybe having more money isn't all you need .....
  11. Tottenham 1 Cardiff 0. Practically an away win and their first win of the season for Cardiff there, well done.
  12. QPR 1 Frank Lampard 1. Frank's finding it hard going on his own, holding onto his slender one goal lead
  13. I think putting us as a similar size club to Sheff Wednesday is a bit self-deluded rather than self-deprecating!
  14. 17th out of 24. Source? Reporter on the BBC said so, just now. So must be true. Doing well so far, on relatively modest wages, competing with the big spenders. As are Brentford. Be interesting to see if they - and we - can compete after Christmas, for longer than last season.
  15. Angry place, Leeds. Still not over that West Brom goal in 1971 or whenever.
  16. I have 20 seasons of League One success and mediocrity under my belt, and that is more than enough for me. Even the successful years in League One are, let's be honest, a bit mediocre.
  17. Yes, absolutely. Because it is subjective, and you can say and think and convince yourself of anything that is unmeasurable and purely down to your own preferences. "We are loyal and true, they are fickle and get on their players' backs." Unlike objective stuff, like league tables and past playing record which no amount of gaslogic can twist to portray them as more "special" than us. They have nowhere to go with cold, hard and transparent facts like what division we are in respectively, how long ago it was that we played in the same division, that they were above us, who won the la
  18. I want Bristol City, at some point, to achieve something special. Winning League One, and the Tin Pot cup, in 2015 was nice, a bit more than that, but it wasn't special. Finishing 11th in the Championship is commendable, but not special. For a few months last season, we were looking a bit special, we all felt a bit special, but in football, you need to keep it up for longer and most special things in football are achieved after Easter, not around Christmas (Swindon being the exception here). Winning a proper cup - or perhaps getting to a major final - would be special, something n
  19. Interesting. I was listening Radio Bris and at one point the commentator said he could hear LJ shouting "move!" I took this to mean he wanted them to do what you refer to above. So why would they not be moving off the ball enough? It's not something they forget or do not know about.
  20. Do it. It's what we need. What we don't need is an ear-splittingly loud local covers band blaring out local covers of classic rock anthems to which no-one sings along or takes anything from there into the ground to create atmosphere and support for the team during the game. We're all passive, suffering punters shouting into the ear of the bloke/bird right next to us, probably wishing they would pack it in. What we do need is someone to encourage everyone standing around swilling beer to get involved and start singing before the game, possibly even try some new songs, like used to hap
  21. What a cracking, intimate, old school English football ground the Baseball Ground was. Even we could create a proper atmosphere in that place! Anyone could. Absolutely made for it. Much as I appreciate a seat and seeing the whole pitch now and all the modern cons, imagine having a place like that to watch some football again.
  22. A new one. "We've conquered all of Europe, we're never gonna stop...we're Liverpool supporters, and we come from Liverpool....Allez, Allez, allez" something like that. It's good. In Liverpool. Some la' with an acoustic guitar in a pre-match pub gets up on stage, sings it to the boozy mob, the boozy mob singalong to the singalong chorus, they go to the match, sing it at the match, everyone else sings it. Something like that. There's a vid on YouTube of the la' with a g'ta, singing his song and learning the boozy mob. Maybe what we need, on the concourse? Anyway, Cardiff have c
  23. There needs to be an option for timid outfits like Cardiff not up to tackling top class football, whereupon winning promotion from the Championship, someone from the PL drives to south Wales and gives them the cheque/money and they in return waive the right to actually playing in the top division, remaining at the lower level where their hoof is more compatible and sparing themselves the national ridicule, letting another more capable Championship team go up and do the bit that millions around the world tune in for: passing the ball, shooting, scoring goals etc.
  24. Do a Burnley? Cardiff? Well, they're not up to doing a Swansea.
  25. Yeah. We're distracting ourselves from that by focusing on Warnock's
