  1. Looks like in the main an inverse relationship ... between cards and league positions ...
  2. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-1504525/Lions-fans-tour-perform-Yorkshire-Haka-Auckland.html
  3. some huge crowds here! http://european-football-statistics.co.uk/attnclub/league/brir.htm
  4. Average crowds are historically superb just now .... but what is the story behind 1956? http://european-football-statistics.co.uk/attnclub/league/bric.htm
  5. If you read the detail this is more to do with political protest ... shame that we don't engage in politics like the Europeans ...
  6. "Seems mad though, 14-15 hours on busses and coaches for 90 minutes of football." Exactly which is why I gave up a few decades ago ... I will drive to Avebury after England win the World Cup Saturday morning, have a stroll across to the West Kennet Long Barrow, a beer in the Red Lion, up to Wroughton for the game versus Trowbridge and down the M4 to a friend's in Bristol Saturday night. Cost? Maybe £30 ... and far more relaxing than driving up north on a Friday night. Non League is the way forward ...
  7. "Specifically with this deal and with any deal I have to ensure we protect ourselves financially but also ensure I balance the risk with bold action to ensure we continue to improve our quality going forward. Let me be absolutely clear that this particular loan, and indeed every loan, is structured to ensure we protect our financial exposure whilst simultaneously giving Lee and his staff the very best chance of achieving our shared goals. I hope I have given you the clarity." Crystal clear!!
  8. Anyone know if Vue Longwell Green have pay on the night tomorrow or do tickets have to have been booked in advance?
  9. Stewards are not always that switched on. My son was once asked to show his bag so he pulled up his shirt and showed his colostomy bag and said 'I need a loo urgently'. The steward didn't have a clue what this was all about so summoned his supervisor who immediately opened a disabled toilet with a radar key.
  10. It's a mentality issue. Even at local non league matches with crowds of 50-60 supporters leave early ... it doesn't happen at the cinema as somebody pointed out .... or at the theatre .... and talking of LJ and s*x :laugh: ... imagine saying to the partner 'we're almost there but I must go now'. It's daft .... just park about half a mile further away and walk for about ten minutes extra and traffic is far less of an issue. Trouble is too many supporters are joined at the hip to their cars and won't walk.

  12. Other regular bus services do exist from Yate to Bristol Y1 Y2 ...
  13. It's called price discrimination and it happens when there are distinct markets with different demand elasticities and no seepage between the two markets .... that is if I remember my Economics correctly! A very common business practice .... bit like when you pay £1.50p a litre on the M4 service station for petrol .... £1.25p in Tesco ... a pint at Ashton Gate far more expensive than in the local pub ... etc.
  14. A significant minority of football 'fans' are still morons ... FACT.
  15. Say's Law states that 'supply creates its own demand' ... but I doubt most of you have no idea what that means. It happened with Yate ...
  16. and we are charging Wigan fans £27 for a Sunday ko at 130pm ... pot calling the kettle black ... PS. Bradford Town v Brislington including a programme was £4 last night ...
  17. Results do follow money and that can be quantified (80% +) but what about what the Coach can affect. It is hard to measure the Coaches ability to affect players psychologically. Pep Guardiola is quick to get rid of players he cannot get to buy into his football. Tactics are psychological. If you think what the coach wants is poor it will affect performance This is so true as Ray Savino once quantified ..
  18. I have mixed race members in my family as well as Welsh family and family who support the Gas ... the way some of the w****s on here go on ... you are typical WASPS not that you would know what that means because ... I won't say. Quite a few so-called City 'fans' are as racist and whatever as whoever England played the other night. To be honest I don't give a to** because I lost all interest in top flight football a couple of decades ago ...
  19. so hold your hand up if, when City play teams from South Wales, you have not joined in with the chants of 'sheep shaggers' ... bloody hypocrites the lot of you.
  20. "Home fan only pubs" That is a sad indictment of football ...
  21. zero degrees isn't half bad ...
  22. Splitting hairs is pathetic ... who really is bothered about whether this crowd was 1.056% bigger than that crowd :laugh:? Anything that puts the West Country on the map is to be welcome. In the big scheme of things, we are a big fish in a small pool ... pretty poor really: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_stadiums_in_the_United_Kingdom_by_capacity
  23. Football 'supporters' are real hypocrites .... just look at how some of the posts on here say absolutely disgusting things about Rovers' fans and supporters from Cardiff and Swansea ... were the same things to be said about eg. Asians then the posters would be (a) banned and (b) the posts removed.
