I never did those two but Springfield Park & Field Mill were not so hot and locally Aldershot took some beating for quirkiness 

Blundell Park, home of Grimsby Town - which is situated in Cleethorpes - is by far the coldest I've ever been at a ground, even Boundary Park was temperate compared to this place

I watched a game at Sincil Bank once (non City) and it was about -10!!! Even the half time cuppa froze!!

I've not been to either of those and many say Hartlepool and the old Darlington ground were also miserable and  cold

It wasn`t watching City but I was at Exeter for a night game against someone. It was so cold the Mars bar I bought from the big bank kiosk was frozen solid and I couldn`t eat it till I got it home and thawed it out.

Grimsby I agree with - cold wind off the North Sea (the ground`s only the other side of the railway line from the beach) but bloody a bloody lovely cod lot!

Neither of those were too bad as it goes. Hartlepool`s old fashioned but in a neat and tidy way and Feethams was next to the cricket ground and you had to walk round the boundary to get in.

The coldest I have ever been was at AG funnily enough. A home game v Ipswich about three or four years ago. It was in March and a lovely sunny day but there was a horrendously cold wind blowing straight into the South Stand  and the wind chill took it to about 15 below.

I remember that game. Was the second game I took my (8 yr old) daughter to and we froze. I think we left after 60 odd minutes as we were close to gangrene.

The advantage of large attendances at  matches at Ashton Gate in recent years is that the other spectators act as a wind break and keep you warm. Back in the days when attendances were below 10k you could be isolated and hit by a blast of cold air coming directly from the North Pole.

The trouble is though, you`re stuck in your seat and can`t shelter behind a fat bloke (or in the case of most other fans, shelter behind me)

I remember going there at the beginning of the season and the sum was out!   1-1.  Torpey, then he took a forearm smash and never really cut the mustard.

Ah, the old 'I'll crawl over the severn bridge to play for City' game. I was there too. He looked pretty good until he was comatosed!

I once went to a testimonial match at AG (Cheesley’s perhaps?) when it was so, so cold. My mate and I stopped in Redcliffe for a drink, saw something called Owd Roger, drank two pints and can’t remember driving home (sorry officer). Turned out it was something like 9%.

I remember being frozen at a home game against Wednesday on a Saturday afternoon.

I had a Saturday job on Park Street and because it had started snowing there was next to no shoppers out and about, so come 1pm, you can go home.

A 99p Micky Finns lunchbox and off to the gate I head. In jogging trousers and a t-shirt.

No idea what the score was, just remember spending a fortune on Bovril. (Might have been a draw, I do remember they got the orange ball out).

I remember going to Notts county in the cup, years ago. Left Bristol and it was lovely and warm so a few of us had shorts and t shirts on.

Got to County and it was snowing, bloody freezing it was on their old away terrace. We stuck it out though.

Now, Micky Finns lunchbox!! That was the absolute business. I never quite got my head around the value.

If that was the same match, there was an announcement over the tannoy that, due to the inclement weather, the last train back to Sheffield would be leaving at around 17H00ish so fans would have to leave 'soonish' or spend the night in Bristol.

Cue the chant, 'One Bed and Breakfast, there's only one Bed and Breakfast'.

I was Doing in a pub in Chepstow about 4 years ago (The Fives - I was playing a mixture of reggae, ska and northern) when a skinhead walks in.  Not a regular but he heard the music and thought he'd come in.  Turns out he was Gas.  Found out I was a City fan but we got on like a house on fire.  He was quite pissed mind.

Know quite a few Sags in Caldicot - 2 or 3 lived here for a few years but more moved in recently.  Quite a few City as well (probably more).

we always used the brewers in chepstow to meet up before we went to the gate and sometimes back in after for a few.

I was stood on the Open End for that match. My mates went home at half time as it was so unbelievably ******* cold but for some reason I decided to stay despite not being able to feel my feet. 

Ive never been so freezing in my life before or since.

We drew 1-1.

I’d just like to briefly interrupt this chat about being cold to remind people that the Gas are shit, have virtually no fans left in Bristol, are not actually ‘coming for us’ like they claimed and may even go down before their own manager.

What a bunch of utter clowns, no wonder we don’t take them seriously anymore 🤣

As you were...

They should have “See you next season, Teds!” embroidered on their club badge, given they trot it out every year without fail. What a bunch of deluded, self-pitying flanges the Gash are.

See you next season? Bunch of C U Next Tuesdays more like.
