That's the fella. I was quite disappointed when they signed him, thought he was quite good. Thankfully I've been proven to be totally wrong once again! :thumbsup:

He was good. So good that he was dragged down to their level quicker than anyone imagined.

Think the Mem could probably turn Pele in to Bas Savage, Jairzinho in to Ali Dia and Zico in to Ryan Kent.

Yeah, right! They don't let facts get in the way of an old fashioned self congratulate do they? :drunk2:

 

 

Just think if they played at AG8 they would only need the Lansdown Stand

That is mental to think about. The Lansdown Stand can't be far off the capacity of the Mem full stop can it?

Memorial 'stadium' capacity - 12,011 including 3,000 seats.

Lansdown stand capacity - ~11,000 including ~11,000 seats ;)

Not much in it and our 1 stand would be far higher if they had to go all-seater. even at 2 to 1 (I think it's more like 3 to 1), their capacity would be down to 8,506. ((12011-3000) / 2) +3000= 8,506. 

Yes, our 1 stand is bigger than their entire 'ground' :)

I could name;

Lines [because he went off and bettered himself at the likes of Port Vale]

Harrison [because he's a City fan]

The tramp [only because his picture appears on here quite a lot]

oh and Colin Daniel who wore their kit once!

 

Once was enough...

Their crowd on Tuesday night would have almost filled the South Stand and Atyeo Stand if played at Ashton Gate. That also includes Wigan fans.

The Lansdown and Dolman Stands would have seen 17,314 empty seats.

Funny how the twerp never backed it up when offered the opportunity eh? What a loser! The low life is a pathological liar, probably sits in his mothers spare room at 40 years of age in his pants playing on his Atari from the 1980's thinking what new drivel he can make up about Bristol's premier football club. He probably doesn't even bother to watch the shower of shit in BS7.

Tim, I reckon you might know him, his identity was revealed on here at the time he came out with his little story! If I was to say CJ Computers, do you know the guy that owns that establishment?

Thankfully not JP! 

I see one of theirs realises there really Is only OTIB.

'Our fans are always fantastic. We are the envy of a lot of clubs, especially with our away following. 

Really proud to be a Gashead. There is only ever one sensible choice when you are from Bristol.'

That sensible choice being Ashton Gate and Bristol's far bigger and more successful club. It's a total no-brainer to be fair yet their 'self congratulation' knows no bounds. Why on earth would anyone follow that shower of crap rather than us?

This CJ Computers with a webpage a child would be embarrassed by?

And as for the use of capital letters...

Or give them the dolman. And they can finally have a few locked out . Mickey Mouse bandits 

Piss off! I don't want some filthy methane snorting piece of crap sitting in my seat! 

They would just stand there, bewildered by this red thing that hinges up and down and have no idea what to do with it. To be fair, it's probably better than the box they sit on at home! As for what they would make of the concourses?? :nono:

Really?

Apart from the obvious one, you honestly wouldn’t know Bobby Reid, Joe Bryan, Aden Flint, Marlon Pack, Korey Smith or Frankie Fielding, then?

All of those have done 5 years or more with us.

I get some of the others, (Eliasson, for instance) but including Taylor that is 7 I would be genuinely amazed if you didn’t know.

Now you write the names yes I recognise them, but if you put me on the spot and asked me in a pub I think I would have named Reid, Flint and Fielding. Ask me a City side from the 70s and I would probably get the lot!

Is "playing on his Atari" a euphimism?

On this day in 1986 a massive 3,576 Sags (and 20,000 locked out) turned up to watch their last ever match as Eastvile Squatters. En masse they piled into the IKEA end and paid a massive 50p for their programme which had a picture of them unsurprisingly scoring against “The Shit” on the front. (Not at all obsessed with us are they?) Massive Club.

During my lifetime you have always been the better supported club. However, football was right in the doldrums in the mid 80s and attendances were pretty shite for every club in comparison to today . I just checked and City's previous home game against Swansea was watched by 6013. Yes our attendance was shit, but it was a lot closer to City attendances then than it is now!

Yes, but it was the last ever match at your gas infused scrapyard.

Yes, then you had just over half our average support and now you have less than half our average support.
