  1. Keepers being shown a red card is not that uncommon - Accrington keeper sent off yesterday for 2 yellows for example - if an opposition player is through on goal and GK brings him down ( or more likely the player "goes down" at the slightest contact) then it's a red......far too big a risk IMO not to have a sub. The NZ keeper must be as cheap in training as he was in his one appearance for LJ to take the risk.

    WBA 1976

    It was a fantastic run to promotion , as well as the WBA game I went to Charlton on the Friday night before and we came from 2-1 down to equalise w th a Gerry Sweeney goal in injury time and it felt as good as a win, huge following at the Valley, also remember going to Bloomfield Rd (we lost that one), and a 0-0 at the Gas before the clincher v Pompey. What a time to be alive |

    Sir Geoff was awesome that night
  4. Sounds like Anderson won't pay the wages as he's hoping if the sale goes through .....it's the new owners problem. Really bad way to behave - by the way this is not overpaid footballers striking ...they are taking action because the admin and office staff haven't been paid and these are ordinary folk like you and I and can't go 2 months without pay.....some prob on min wage or not much more. The new prospective owner doesn't sound very honourable either.
  5. It's 5-3-2 So is this a tactical change to cope with Sheff Utd? Or LJ wanted to bring Korey in but didn't want to drop Brownhill or Pack? So changes the formation to accommodate all 3?
  6. What a weepin' and wailin' dung a Caymanas park What a weepin' and wailin' dung a Caymanas park Long Shot, him kick de bucket Long Shot kick de bucket Get up, get up in the first race And them pull up the pace Get up, get up in the first race And them pull up the pace And Long Shot, him kick de bucket Long Shot kick de bucket Well done .....just took me right back to the skinhead disco at the Star Rhodyate Hill (ask your Dad!)
  7. No, it's always been open uncovered terracing until the Atyeo was constructed. The other stand in the model does somewhat resemble the old wooden "No2" stand that once stood where the Dolman is now. That stand was demolished in (I think) 1965 or 66 - certainly it had gone when I started going in 66-67 season. The terrace in front of the stand remained though......interestingly this side had no separate entrance or turnstiles , you just entered via the open or covered end and walked onto that side. Many fans changed ends at half time back then so you were always behind the end City were attacking.

    Owner interferes - and manager walks. Thank goodness that has never happened at Bristol City..........
  9. Don't make excuses - he was the worst keeper I've seen at Ashton Gate and I've been going since 1967! It was panic stations every time the ball went near him and the defence were unsettled by his antics. I really hope he never plays for us again.
  10. Hopefully when the next series (aka season) starts it begins with Cotts (aka Bobby) waking up and we find his sacking and the entire LJ/MA era was a dream and Cotts carries on from where we were - completes the signings of McGuire and Grey- and we go onwards and upwards with our winning 3-5-2 formation storming the league! The only distraction from our winning ways is the mystery of who shot RR - spoiler= nearly everyone had a motive for shutting him up.......permanently!
  11. He meant Sol Campbell - made 9 changes for Macclesfield v MKD - but understandable as they're both similar (whingers, , entitled, unsuccessfull , and up themselves )
  12. Good shout.....like the sound of that , Morrell passes the ball really well and you know Weinman and Matty won't stop running .....and their movement in the box is the best in the squad. Fam - for all his work and strength and laying off - has really poor box movement, he is always waiting for the ball to come onto him and never gambles and pulls off his man into space. Gary Linekar said he never knew where the ball was going to arrive but simply concentrated on finding space in the 6 yard box and if he was lucky and the ball dropped for him he'd have an uncontested shot......and usually a goal.
  13. Waterfall was a favourite Stone Roses song.......but I'm effing sick of it now it's being sung - badly - by every club ......and I never want to hear it again!. Bound to be heard from Leeds tomorrow as well
  14. No , has been like that all season- open for football but due to location used almost exclusively by away fans.... No signage saying away fans only but lots of OB around that area and if City fans started using it in numbers I'm sure they'd get moved on. The Goat curry sounds tasty.....might seek that out, should nestle nicely on top of 4 pints of Guinness...what could go wrong?
