  1. Just reading through the thread, and appreciate the detail you've put into this response. I find it very interesting looking back on former 'legendary' players, so thanks for your quality reply.
  2. Based on what? I read an article only two days ago that a massive new wooden structure / balcony on the side of a block of flats caught fire and was totally destroyed. Wood doesn't burn any more? Humans don't make mistakes with their fire proofing?
  3. Also interesting to think of the betting market, there might be a killing to be made putting lots of money on var penalties, disallowed goals etc.
  4. As usual, some really good comments, cheers all. There's definitely a lot of cult icons appearing on the thread - like Jacki for example, and yep I'd say Flint is a cult icon. It seems that Super Scotty Murray is getting quite a few nods as a Legend, which sounds fair to me.
  5. Reading the fantastic Peter John Atyeo thread (never knew his first name was Peter before) has led me to ponder how many legends we have. Ok, so this is very subjective, and unless I'm mistaken, there is no clear definition for a Club Legend. But who can we all agree on? I'll start with John Atyeo as the clear and obvious, and will add Brian Tinnion to the list as my personal club legend. I feel that Tinman has to be a legend, due to time served as a quality player for us, and for his continuing work with the City youth players. I'll forgive him his time as a manager! Clearly there are many others in the history of City - but I don't want to start this thread just listing them from my wobbly memory, so who would you suggest?
  6. The truth is, football with VAR is not the sport we fell in love with. We are humans, not robots. We want passion, blood and thunder, mistakes, talking points that make the blood boil (not the tedium of discussing a VAR disallowed goal), exciting football. Surely we want to be able to celebrate a goal and not then feel like absolute dog shite five minutes later if the goal is erased. I just don't see the need for it. The game was fine, in fact, it was better than fine, it was bloody brilliant.
  7. In your opinion, with all the players at our disposal last season, what was our best 11? I only watched about 12 games, so my knowledge isn't exceptional, but here's my preferred team: Maenppa Hunt Webster Kalas JDS Elliason Pack Brownhill O'Dowda Weimann Diedhoiu Just curious to see how many variations of team we have, although I'm fairly sure that side shown above, with all players on good form, would take some stopping.
  8. I feel the same way, I will not go to watch a game with VAR, if goals like last night are being disallowed. Football is already becoming too boring with safe play, pedestrian passes, overly defensive set ups, and now seemingly good goals being chalked off. The future sounds very dull indeed.
  9. Forget the VAR, for me there is no way that was offside. He was in line with the defender. The offside laws should be changed to give the benefit to the attacking player. Football, like all sports, is better when it is exciting, not restrictive and negative. With less goals, less celebration, the joy and fantasy of football is diminished. We, the fans, will suffer for this.
  10. I haven't had the time to listen, but just wanted to say that's pretty amazing, Tinnion is a true City legend. I am envious that you had chance to sit down and interview the great man. I will listen a bit later, when the children are asleep.
  11. I actually feel the women's clubs should stick with their own names and brand their teams separately. For me, Bristol City FC is a male football team, not sexist of course, just the way it has always been. I thought it was a good idea when the woman's team was called Bristol Vixens, as it was their separate team, with their own identity. I don't get why the women's clubs merely want to be imitations of the male clubs that already exist.
  12. Well, I'll be buggered if I'm going to go through and check, but I reckon we must have nearly all regular forum users with a response on this thread. Cheers all, I've loved reading every comment. My next task .... get us all to sit together for a City game - the OTIB block! Perhaps against Palace?
  13. I have to question your dad's motives, why the two posters? If he was a fan of either club, surely the other one would have been burned! Dave, thank God you liked the colour red, imagine how horrible your footballing years would be if blue had been your shade of choice.
  14. Well, my OTIB dream has worked out very well, some fantastic detail here, bloody brilliant stuff. I'm going to read this over a few times in the next few months, nothing like going back over little snippets of City history.
  15. Bloody good start to the thread, keep the replies flowing! And a question for Meh, who are you? Who were you previously? The mystery is too much for a man to take!
  16. Without using Google, I have no idea who that is, but knowing you, I'm sure it's quite amusing!
  17. Of a non-match day thread where every single, and yes I mean every single OTIB member posts something - obviously to do with football. I guess I just want to see how many people read and respond to threads on this famous board, and if a single thread can attract a response from every one of you! I have a question for you, can you recall the first approx. time / season you knew you were a City fan? I knew I was a City fan fairly late in my life, relatively speaking, about the age of fourteen, in the early nineties.
  18. I've heard stories that he was born with a full, glorious head of long white hair.
  19. Yeah, he didn't seem right before the match, and was even late to the ring, so something was definitely wrong with him. It was quite strange during the round intervals that he was clearly asking his trainer, 'What he should do next, how Ruiz was going to fight, and why he felt in such a way?'
  20. I watched the whole pay per view again last night and was awe-struck by the brutality of the Katie Taylor fight. Wow, those two ladies really tried to batter the crap out of each other. I have no idea how the human body can stand up to such a continued onslaught. AJ looked even worse to me on the second showing. Wilder would have nothing to fear; I'd expect Dillian Whyte to now destroy him, should those two have a rematch.
  21. I can understand him sounding enthused, everyone loves telling and hearing the details of a good conspiracy theory. It does sound like a load of rubbish though, but entertaining. AJ just isn't as good as the media make him seem.
  22. Shocked by how poor Anthony Joshua looked. Something was clearly up, still no excuses for a terrible showing, but he was not right even upon entering the ring. He could barely keep his mouth guard still and looked disorientated. I wouldn't be surprised to hear he was ill with the flu or something, seemed to have breathing problems. Someone was massaging his head and neck before the fight - perhaps had a migraine?
  23. What? Always thought I was quite good friends with Freeman, very surprised I didn't get an invite. Must have got lost in the post. Wonder if Steve Cotts was there?
  24. Who's wedding was that? I have no idea about the answer to the question, don't recognise him as a former City player. On a separate point, Luke Ayling's trousers are horrible, I would have to be a corpse to wear those.
  25. All the best to Mo Eisa, a shame to see him go as I really hope and expect our signings to succeed at the club. Whatever we say here, it is a failure when you have to sell a player after just 12 months. For me, Mo should have been given more starts in the team during the course of the season, as we know he scores goals, and has frightening pace. Appreciate I'm making these comments from purely a fan's perspective, but if he had been played in the team during the middle period of the season, he may have developed a confidence / improved performance to go on and score a few goals in the latter period of the season, and make a difference in some of our games where we dropped points. Was he badly injured at some stage of the season?
