  1. Tommy. The bars not open yet? Without wishing to sound patronising, that makes a good deal of sense.
  2. This place just wouldn’t be the same without Tommy and his totally random postings. Luv it.
  3. Anyone else seen THAT away shirt on Twitter tonight! Will only be available from Ann Summers and other specialist stockists! VERY nice indeedy. If I had a capability I’d do a link. .. but I can’t, so won’t.
  4. I blame the fact that the EFL no longer allow those light blue coloured invalid cars around the pitch. Given the people that account for the 16 million increase would all qualify for a disabled car, the EFL need to rethink their pitch side parking strategy.
  5. Sad news. Quality winger. Did he have a car parts/accessory shop on the main road out to Stockwood? Sure my ex mentioned once that.
  6. If you’re after a replacement get down to Bristol Trade Centre.
  7. Understand that. You could add lack of English managers and owners as well. TBH the Premier League does little for me and can’t be arsed to watch many matches any more. With Europe though, it’s still about ‘our’ Clubs flying the English League flag with the (predominantly!) English fans.
  8. Chelsea, the worst of the four English semi-finalists by far. Can’t see any discernible system/pattern of play. Poor individually and collectively- look like a bunch of strangers. Strange the crowd have been as bad as the team. Reminded me of Ashton Gate when we turn up expecting to win and wait to be entertained. This is a European semi final. Even we’d get up for that!
  9. Why aren’t the same online police calling for the sacking of the political and religious elite for trashing the planet?
  10. Both acts unacceptable and foolish. If you are correct about Sinclair, it will be ‘interesting’ to see what the BBC does with Danny Boy in twelve months Now, Ron Atkinson. Whatever happened to him?

    Ajax vs Spurs

    Great advert for ENGLISH football. Fast, attacking, direct football. Back to the 70’s ENGLISH brand with a bit more skill and control. Loving it.
  12. Never in any doubt. Nope. None whatsoever. Honest.

    Thank you for your input Mr Watkins. (Actually, it could be a couple of others of our Summer signings who authored this post ... but they’ve had so little impact I can’t remember their names! )
  14. That’ll do nicely. Decided we ain’t very good at basketball though. Maybe we could turn the Arena into a netball venue.
  15. Relax. Our extra few hours rest will pay dividends in the last 5 minutes. It’ll be a 3-2 victory.
  16. For starters, you don’t have incentives to ‘grow’ your population beyond sustainable levels. You agree a ‘carrying capacity’ for the Country and a target for the medium and long term population levels - which doesn’t involve the loss of 60% of wildlife in next 50 years and isn’t dependent on barbaric, inhumane farming of animals. We are where we are. Lazy, selfish, ‘me-me’ politicians mean we are more likely to ‘crash and burn’ rather than sort it out ourselves. There’s a few voices in the semi-political wilderness, Attenborough, Packham but too little, too late. Personally, spent 40 years trying to change hearts and minds, adopt a ‘quality not quantity’ approach and applying the ‘precautionary principle’. Largely failed and now, much to my own shame, really am past caring. Good luck to some of the younger generation who seem more environmentally aware than oldies, I hope they succeed where my generation has failed. Back to more important matters....COYRs and get your finger out Mr Mayor and deliver decent access to one of your City’s major assets and facilities and one, which more than most, puts Bristol on the map. ... and your solution?
  17. So you keep building until you run out of land? We are already depend on unsustainable, industrialised, intensive agriculture to feed ourselves and still need to import 60% of our food. Going back to the Mayor. The mayoral system was set up to bang heads together as a facilitator, to deal with issues just like Ashton Gate access - where public /private sectors were not working for the benefit of society. Planners are responsible for forecasting housing need and delivering it with developers.... largely on a predict and provide basis. The Mayor is just another tier of unnecessary waste in the process.
  18. Yep. Utterly clueless. Yes, let’s build more houses. Let’s take a prime City centre location, once in a generation opportunity, and build loads of flats rather than build something iconic for the many, not the few. Brilliant isn’t it? Build houses and they will come. Thousands, yet more thousands and they’ll have, what, two, three, four sprogs each pair and guess what, you need to build more thousands of houses to build for their offspring.. and so it goes on. More voters for labour, more consumers for the Tories. One day the human race will wake up to the idea that they are solely responsible for destroying all other species on the planet... but, hey, keep supporting the short-sighted.
  19. I’ve an idea. What about a dedicated public transport route next to the stadium? You know, like a bus only road. I know it would be expensive, but think of the benefits. Then, just think. We could have a 1,000 plus capacity level car park on land between us and Long Ashton within walking distance of the stadium. ... and dream on..... we could have a rail line and platform that’s a stones throw from the stadium. Read and weep. Only in Bristol would you have all the infrastructure in place and nobody allowed to use it. Truly pathetic. Hang your head in shame Mr Mayor, you and your cronies are truly ****** useless. You don’t deserve Steve Lansdown, a successful football team or regional entertainment facility.
  20. ... and, somewhat bizarrely, two of the six defeats this season have been to W-S-M. Well done Gulls. Their supporters deserve it. Over 4500 today.
  21. Always been a decent and sound poster to me. Missing you Bob. Can’t take on all these happy clappers by myself you know!

    Got to say, apart from the absence of any decent information about the service, AG6 was a dream last night. Wont be bothering with the car again to access The Gate and that’s from someone who always has used private transport to get to the ground.
  23. Some brilliant individual performances tonight and an outstanding team performance. Special mentions to Fam, Webster, Da Silva and Kalas. Some of the best shifts I’ve seen in 50 odd years. Weimann was superb in the first half too. Got used to not winning easy now following City but thought the second half subs could have been made 10 minutes earlier to ease the pressure. Minor gripe though as we won. Exhausted.

    Bus Gate

    Opps. Yes was the AG6! Got confused with reference to X6 on the First Bus site

    Bus Gate

    Much appreciated. Progress! I’ve established it’s the AG6! Helpfully, Bristol Sport website refers to AG1-4 .... but not the AG6. Brilliant. Christ knows what First Bus are saying on their website! Seems it is still running with some chap having won a City Shirt in February when he stepped off the bus at The Gate ........one assumes as a prize for having managed to find the service timetable and actually catching the bus. Anyone a user of this AG6 Service ? If so, can you point me further in the right direction. Either, as a car user, I have no idea of how public transport information is conveyed or public transport operators/BristolSport are useless at communicating.
