  1. I detest that repulsive pile of skeletal remains with a passion. Any City fans who like that utter weapon because “he’s a laugh, innee?” need to take a long hard look at themselves - why would we like a bloke who makes us all sound like daft yokels, and openly detests City? Only cretins who think Soccer AM is good would like the ridiculous bag of bones. Do one, Hollowhead.
  2. The chap in question has been unwell for some time but has soldiered on and has muscled through to attend City matches even when he’s been quite poorly. Wishing him a speedy recovery. Think he was named supporter of the year a few years back.
  3. “Magnificent stadium”?!? What are you babbling on about, man! What’s his yardstick for impressive buildings - has he just come back off holidaying in the Bahamas or summat?
  4. Even accounting for inflation, the SIXTY QUID I was quoted for postage of my City shirt last season (that’s postage alone, not inclusive of the purchased item) is a far cry from 16p. I had it sent to a UK address and wired the kind soul the actual £8 it cost to post instead.
  5. Chanting “Beadle! Beadle!” at the Scum was the most cathartic thing ever in light of previous AG derbies. He almost capped it off with a superb fourth goal - juggled the ball on the edge of the area and flashed a shot just wide.
  6. Some other favourite derby memories: 1984: 3-0 win at the Gate, first time we had met them in the league in a fair while 1993: The night when we effectively relegated them. Great atmosphere that evening 1997: Beating them three times at their new hovel in a calendar year 1998: 2-0 win at the Gate (partly thanks to a bit of a dodgy penalty award) that went a long way to securing our automatic promotion 2000: 3-2 Beadle-inspired victory the Friday before Xmas. Gash took the lead after about 50 seconds but weren’t in the game after that.
  7. That was deliverance - we had almost forgotten how it felt to beat the Gash at that point and it all looked bleak again until the Skellington had his spotkick saved. Then LD stoops to conquer and three quarters of the ground do their collective nut.
  8. I do miss the derbies although obviously I’ve no desire to see them become a regular fixture on the calendar again as that would either mean we had sunk back to their level or that’s Wael had finally found his reputed wealth down the back of the settee, but an FA Cup meeting would be nice. That would spoil their delightful habit of being humbled at home by nonleague teams though so if the Bristol Derby continues to lay dormant than it’s fine!
  9. Gash lose on penalties - never mind eh.
  10. Former Rovers fanzine editor now an AFC Wimbledon supporter, got disillusioned during the Higgs era. Would’ve thought they’d come sprinting back now they are such a well-run outfit under Wael...
  11. You can also stage your Hen (-Bury Gas) Party there - and no worries if nothing outrageous happens during the party, he will happily make up a pack of lies for you.
  12. The latest semi-literate gibberish from the scum’s website: “With most of the Gas up for an attack, when the ball was hit over the top, Edwards alert to chase it down and head towards goal. When he reached Jaakkola, he acted with calmness, placing it between the Fin's legs and crushing Rovers' hopes.”
  13. Nope, he wasn’t offside and the goal was perfectly legitimate sadly. We may not like it but the rule change is unambiguous on this point:- Previously, an attacking player who was in an offside position at the time that the ball was played by a teammate, could be penalized and ruled offside when the ball was deflected by or rebounded from a defender to the attacking player even though the defender tried to play the ball. The new rule changes this situation as the attacking player in an offside position when the ball was kicked by a teammate who gets a rebounded or deflected ball after it was deliberately played by the opponent (except from a deliberate save), is no longer offside and is not considered to have gained an advantage. One example of the rule change would be if an attacking player plays the ball toward a teammate who is in an offside position (behind the defender) and the defender jumps to head the ball. The ball hits the defender’s head but he/she does not control it. The ball continues to the attacking player who was originally in the offside position. With this rule change the attacking player is no longer considered offside since the defender deliberately tried to play the ball. Another example would be when an attacking player plays the ball toward a teammate who is in an offside position. The defender attempts to kick the ball to clear it away, but miss kicks the ball and it continues forward to the attacker who was initially in the offside position. The attacker receives the ball. This is legal since the offside was negated when the defender miss kicked the ball. Officials must be in good position and recognize the rule change whenever an offside infringement may occur. In the dual system of officiating the lead referee must be even with the second to the last defender to observe the play as it develops. In a diagonal system of control, the assistant referee must be even with the second to the last defender to properly observe the play and if necessary signal for the offside. Once the lead official or assistant referee is in the proper position, the official must determine if there is an offside position , offside infringement or the offside has been eliminated by the above described rule change. The best mechanic when this situation occurs is to delay the decision for a moment to observe what happens next. The lead official or assistant referee must not indicate offside as soon as the ball is played. Note: this was what was previously taught. The lead official or assistant referee must wait to determine if a defender attempts to play the ball and it continues to the attacker in the offside position. If this occurs the play should continue and no offside indicated. By delaying the decision the official is able to make the proper call. If the lead official or assistant referee signaled too early, a potential scoring opportunity may be whistled dead. A good rule of thumb is better to be late and accurate with the call than early and wrong.
  14. Believe it or not even the Gash get respectable attendances compared to clubs like Dundee, St Johnstone, Hamilton. Much bigger catchment area though so it’s still pathetic.
  15. Ah, I see, it all makes sense now - the “10” they awarded themselves was on the Dennis Nilsen measurement scale. Meanwhile, the Gash venture to Burton tomorrow yet to pick up a point or score a goal on their travels - they’ll really need to pull their Bristol Sport socks up.
