    Thats what i am worries about. I love City just hate this football at the moment. Will 100% want to return so don’t want to burn my bridges. Will pay a cancellation fee if thats what it comes to just don’t want to fork out hundreds of pounds and hate every second of going. I actually go to enjoy the football and like to analyse tactics and formation like a boring old fart not just soak up the atmosphere and ciders

    I feel for you mate I really do. I can buy a season ticket but just not use the instalments. What annoyed me was my reason was legitimate. I genuinely could no longer afford it but no compassion was shown.

  2. I just want to warn you all that if you cancel your DDs the club will ban you from using DD in the future. It happened to me a few years ago. I lost my job before the first payment was due so contacted the club and said it was unaffordable for me and was told fine but you are now banned from using DD. 

  3. SL once sacked a manager after reaching a play off final so I find it hard to see how LJ can survive. Don't forget publicly SL stated progression on last season was the minimum requirement. As we won't better last season if SL doesn't act decisively and sack LJ how do we take his comments seriously in the future?

    He could have picked a team to have a go though 

    I totally agree with you. His one tactic appears to be how do I not lose but he can't even get that right.

    He had a fantastic opportunity to wipe the slate clean and have a go at the playoffs. He’s completely bottled it 

    I don't think he bottled it I genuinely believe that he doesn't have the ability or know how to take us further.

  6. The really worrying thing is despite how poor we are and how inept LJ is SL still won't sack him. LJ has survived far more vociferous calls for his head

    Dont buy any more players from Italy. Whether it's the club overexaggerated propaganda or what attracting them but the reality is no one who has lived in Italy would rather live in Bristol. Djuric, Nagy, Magnussen. All sound great, all couldn't hack it here professionally and or sociologically.  

    I think that is a little harsh on Magnussen as he did settle the issue was really whether he was a CB or LB.

  8. Yes that's right. The old shop was next to it. It ended up being used by stewards and game security as an office

    Yeah wasn't there a portaloo type cabin opposite the Williams for a while?

    Am I right in saying we used to have a programme shop at Ashton Gate with new and old ones on sale, plus from other teams as well? 

    Yes and when they knocked the 1980s club shop down for the Superstore at the corner of Williams and Atyeo programmes from away games were sold from a hut in the Winterstoke Road Car Park

    I believe It doesn't matter what the terms and conditions state in this case.  Consumer law would apply.

    If they did use that clause I don't think it would pass the "fairness test"

    Agreed, Consumer Law will always trump a set of T & Cs like these.

    I think this may be wrong.  When I did law, the one thing we always asked is what is the law if a shop price an item wrong, am I entitled to buy it at the price advertised.

    The answer is no.

    Contract Law, offer and acceptance, plus consideration (or something like that, it’s over 30 years ago!)

    It is you, the customer that offers to buy it at the price on the label.  The shopkeeper considers the offer and does not have to accept.

    Most websites usually have a footnote along the lines of “errors and omissions excepted”, which basically means if they price something wrong on a website, even though the website automated process might process it, they can still decline to proceed with the order.

    However, as a part of goodwill, they may decide to accept.

    Curry’s priced some tv’s wrongly a few years ago on Black Friday, and agreed to let the buyer have them at the wrong price advertised.

    You are spot on. If an item has been mistakenly priced then the shopholder has the right to remove the item for sale. My lecturer always used to drum into us that in a supermarket, the labelled price was just the offer and we could make a counter-offer. The seller than then reject. 

    In my view City had to offer a cash refund as they would fall foul to Consumer law in that the item paid for (ie a seat at Ashton Gate Gate) has not been provided.

    Not quite true - I was player-manager of a local team for 12 years - we were the only team in the league that had to affiliate to the Somerset FA due to our location in south Bristol. It meant we had some very long away trips in the Cup! 

    Thanks for putting me right. I just assumed everyone was GFA because all the club's in my old league were.

    I rather miss the pre season Gloucestershire Cup final between City and Rovers.  Anyone remember why it was scrapped and could it be reinstated, especially as a local derby looks very unlikely in the foreseeable future.

    I remember at one point both managers agreeing it was too intense for a pre-season game and players were picking up injuries so it was agreed to scrap it

    If i remember correctly the Rotherham fans were brilliant in the corner of the east end, stayed to clap us off for getting promoted too.

    They were delighted because our win meant Sheff Wed were in the play offs instead of automatic

  15. I missed this game as t was the day I flew home from Florida. When I left the hotel we were 4-2 down and didn't know the score until getting home from Gatwick on the Sunday. My dad said didn't City do well and I thought he was taking the piss.

    Well as it stands the club still intend to take my first direct debit installment on the 1st May.......Cheers then, not sure when I'm next getting paid from work but hey ho!! 🤦‍♂️

    Response from the club today below......

    Thanks for your email.




    As things stand the first pay monthly instalment is due to start on the 1st May.




    However, if this changes and a decision is made to delay all monthly payments then this will be communicated to all supporters.




    Kind regards,




    Supporter Services


    Matt, just a warning mate. When I cancelled my DD a couple of seasons ago before the first payment was due (had to as had lost my job) I was informed I could never have DD again. I told them the reason I was cancelling too.
