  1. Jordan Hugill

    And like I said, fair play to you.
  2. Jordan Hugill

    Never have guessed! What a complete and utter Norris he was. Alongside Pearson and a few others tonight who's actions were a complete and utter p*ss take. Pathetic. But, the ref bought it, let's them get away with it and it got the job done for you so you have to say fair play. Take an away win any way you can. Wouldn't fancy watching it every week though!
  3. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Football is such a beautiful games sometimes!!
  4. IMPORTANT - South Stand Display vs Cardiff

    Just making the powers that be's decision even more and more pathetic by the minute. How embarrassing.
  5. Manchester Novelties

    Let's just keep true faith in the team and I'm sure that we'll all have a fine time.
  6. Agreed. I suggested it a while back and got shouted down by a few on here but really happy they've gone ahead with it. There will be as many City there as possible now which is fantastic news.
  7. Reid and Brownhill contracts

    Would have been one of the best goals ever at AG if that had gone in.
  8. IMPORTANT - South Stand Display vs Cardiff

    Agree. As long as it wasn't held up during the minutes silence then there's no issue. Absolutely shocking decision from the club and the way they've treated these people who have dedicated their time money and effort into trying to get something special going in the ground. Seems like the powers that be at BCFC are turning us into some kind of nanny state at the moment. Shame.
  9. Warnock

    Bloody hell. The journos are properly kissing Colin's arse in that aren't they?! He looks like he's going to have a coronary at the start as well. It's hilarious. Bitter bitter Colin. Brilliant.
  10. Cardiff Attendance

    Some good points mate. I'd say the panto is defiantly expensive but at least it's a 'one off' event a year. I'd also say that just because we are getting the highest crowds for years doesn't mean that there isn't a problem. It's may be a new demographic starting to attend. Which is fantastic. But those families who have been the lifeblood of our suport should be looked after as well. Perhaps we could introduce low income related prices as an idea? I don't know. I just hate seeing football as a whole becoming a luxury event. I know people who have had to stop their ST because of the cost now. It is and should remain the game of the people. Imho it shouldnt be a treat - not because of price anyway. But maybe it's gone well past that now. I just hope I can continue to afford it.
  11. Cardiff Attendance

    Fair play CR completely see your points. You are able to afford the full price games alongside the cheaper games (which of course are cup games a lot of the time so we all benefit and the club should be applauded for that) I think your last point is the most pertinent to my thinking. I really think that football in general could be doing a lot more to ensure that it's affordable across the board - it's not necessarily a City thing. For a parent to take their 2 teenage kids this week is going to cost £63 + bf. Far too much for some people to afford. But like you say, another thread is probably needed.
  12. Cardiff Attendance

    So the majority of games that you've been to have been at the cheaper end of the scale then? Not wishing to argue but doesn't that prove the point trying to be made by some that cheaper tickets equals bigger attendance? Your 5 game average is £10.60 a pop? Appreciate you've also bought a few more expensive ones also which will push that up but still a good price. Personally, as a ST holder I have absolutely no problems with the club offering the tickets at as cheap a rate possible to get the crowds in. The more the merrier. A ST is an investment in the club that comes with perks (see the clamour for Man U tickets) and also provides a cheap match day ticket price as well. I'm lucky enough to be able to afford the outlay and be in a position whereby a ST is a sensible investment but not everyone is. And I don't see why we should preclude those that aren't. They should be encouraged. More the merrier imho.
  13. The rising star of Lee Johnson

    I've quite freely admitted that I wanted LJ gone last season but like to think I've also tried to be balanced in my praise of how he has turned it around - much to the apparent annoyance of one or two on here it seems who think it's not ok to change an opinion based upon what's actually happening. As I've said before it was LJs platitudes after games and his calling out of individuals and subsequent lack of personal responsibility for what was going wrong that made me so cross and its clear that I wasn't alone. Couple that with him not playing a settled team and you had an apparent perfect storm which I saw no way out of. But fair play to him and SL. He seems to have learned and learned quickly and well from his mistakes and he has turned it around fantastically, far far beyond even his biggest supporters thought would happen I would suggest and long may it continue. I've kept my season ticket and finances and personal circumstances allowing that would never change even if we were on the Downs, as it's City I support regardless of players and managers and I'd miss the craic with the boys too much. But fair play to those who did. That's their prerogative, and it would be good if people respected that. Let's enjoy these great times we're currently enjoying and hope they continue. I'll still be extremely happy with a mid table position and anything else is a massive bonus but as always will enjoy the ride!

    The atmosphere last time we played at lunchtime was awful. That isn't a dig at anyone at all but it's fact. This has always been my favourite fixture, home and away, over the years but it's died a death recently unfortunately, from both sides. I just don't think you'll ever replicate the atmosphere that there was in the early 2000s. Different places and different times.
  15. City players at school

    Growing up in Somerset I didn't have any City football players in my school. A few played for various youth teams but never made it as far as I know. Clive Whitehead was friends with my club manager, that's about as close as I got to any City connection growing up! I played cricket with and against some lads that went on to make it, Ben Hollioake (RIP), Chris Read, Dean Cosker, but that's for the non football forum! Love this thread though, find these old stories really interesting.
