    New Music Video Featuring Ashton Gate

    I've read that what music you like depends upon your relative preference for each of rhythm, melody, word play, and progression. That song is mostly wordplay and rhythm, as is most rap, whereas I prefer progression and then melody so like Sibelius, Faure, and Handel. Music is very much a case of "each to their own".

    Do you also support the ladies City team?

    Gymnastics and synchronised swimming. Little or no difference for equestrian and tennis. The main reason for the second place generally taken by women's sport is not intrinsic to the sports or to women's technical ability to do it but that a lot more men are prepared to spend money watching sports than are women; and those men will usually choose to watch the men's version. I can't see why that would ever change.

    Do you also support the ladies City team?

    Only to the extent that I like to hear of success by all associated teams: women's football, the rugby, the basketball, and the City youth teams. I like that there is a City women's team playing in red and being successful but I'm not motivated enough to follow their weekly results.

    I don't like to see Notts County in that position; decent club and decent fans. I went to Meadow Lane in the mid 90s, Stuart Naylor kept kicking the ball up for us to knock back in the warm up. The ground was deserted, about 4k in a 20k newish stadium. The funniest bit of the trip was that I went with three college mates as it was the first time we'd played for ages because County had been in the top division under Neil Warnock so we hadn't played for years. I was known as the Bristol City fan, a mate was known as the Notts County fan so somebody suggested the trip. Somebody else drove and we headed for Nottingham and when there said for the Notts County fan to direct. He was a bit vague but got to us the ground. It was a bit odd because despite being ?1pm on a match day the streets were deserted, we got out of the car and walked to the ground. Somebody asked "Why is it red?" and then somebody spotted a painting of Brian Clough through the window. The penny collectively dropped and we got back into the car and crossed the river Trent to the right ground. The Notts County fan who used to go on about them so much had never even been to the ground despite living just outside Nottingham; and hadn't even thought to find out where it was before the trip. We didn't mention it again. Much.

    I think it's bad news for us that this has just happened as there is bound to be a short term reaction form the players. I am intrigued as to how this is going to work out; he was an excellent manager back in the nineties but that was a long time ago and his record since is best described as patchy. It looks like a rose tinted appointment which Forest are known for after keeping Brian Clough when his days of brilliant management, and they were, were many years in the past and he had become a liability.

    Cheers me dear

    Warnock

    I happen to mostly agree with him but its non-football chat so wants moving. I will report my own post to get it moved.

    Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    I don't think Jon Brown got the memo about Rovers being the friendly family club that all neutrals love.

    New Poster. A bit wary.

    You should remember @roydo that everybody on here was a first time poster at some point and, myself excluded, was somewhat shy and gauche at their first typings. The rule is that your view is as important as anyone else's, bar mine obviously, and that there is no clique of "in" posters owing to the many thousand posters on here and the huge volume of postings. I don't think we're going up this season but am delighted at the season so far as there is now no relegation threat. Remember that there is only one rule on OTIB: no puns.

    A young supporter lost thanks Bristol Sport

    It's a big organisation and sometimes things, particularly unusual requests such as your son's, go astray as there isn't a particular person dealing with them as there would be on standard requests. We've all forgotten to do things at work. Giving Matt Parsons, who has more of a general remit, the opportunity to address it would be fairest.

    More problems for Truro City

    It's because the council sits there as does Radio Cornwall it's propaganda arm; Lawrence Reid at the time of the vote was immediately shutting down any line of argument that suggested the stadium should be built somewhere else. It means that Truro gets looked at first every time; I used to work for the council so saw this in action. Places like Stratton, Liskeard, Bude and Saltash are just not on their radar. There was no way that the "Hall for Cornwall" with all the millions of council subsidy was ever going to be built anywhere but central Truro and it was inevitable that the same would be tried for the stadium. I really hope it fails to be built in its current proposed location and instead is built either by the A30 or the future St Austell link road as suggested here.

    Cameron Pring signs new contract

    We have a very decent youth programme these days; well done the staff and coaches.

    More problems for Truro City

    Yes, very good point. There's a lot of bleak unpopulated land around there so some forty acre complex including lots of pitches wuldn't be expensive.

    more (and more) Bolton troubles

    That last bit I didn't know; that should surely debar him from owning the club in the first place under the "fit and proper" test that the FL allegedly applies. It does make you wonder what the criteria of this test are. Given that additional knowledge I will cease to give credence to his ramblings.
