But fair play to them imo, lots of us on here thought they were guaranteed to go down

Not being funny pal, but if you or anyone else thought they were ‘guaranteed’ to go down this year after the way they finished last season and the fact that 2 of the 4 relegation spots were sown up before a ball was kicked this year...then more fool you.

That also goes for all the fickle Sags who were slagging off their manager a few games into the season and saying how they couldn’t see how they’d stay up after a few matches.

You’re on moderator preview (and have been for a couple of weeks now) because of the load of complaints we had about you after your recent comments amongst other things about your fellow fans. It’s easier for us mods and admin, who are all but one doing this on a voluntary basis, than dealing with piles of complaints. Prove you can post sensibly for a while and we’ll look at removing the restriction. 

Patronising or what?  Come off it we all know that turning a blind eye to certain posters is all part of OTIB, I am never abusive , OK I might have views some might not like but It Is A Forum, where all views should be tolerated, like I say I don't post offensive content, but have to receive plenty, surely  by studying the thread you might see that.? I know it's difficult to remain impartial, especially with your involvement with that case, but you really should. 

Perhaps you might guide me as to what is a 'sensible' post?

I assume the manager who's family they were abusing not too long as is now the messiah?

Are they turning up to games now in their drones? Oh wait just seen their attendance maybe not.. 😂😂

They still haven't beaten anyone of note.. few scabby 1-0 wins against poor fodder even for that division. I'll hold my praise for when they actually beat a side not in the bottom half and get an attendance over 8k 😂😂😂 inbreds.

What would be hilarious though is they were to get promoted in the same season we did as well.

Well they did just that the last time we got promoted ...

A double promotion in Bristol would hopefully bring us out of the football wilderness in the eyes of the media.

It happened at the end of the 2014/2015 season, but it wasn’t too glamorous mind!

Well, that would give them a decent view but doubt it would be included in the attendance figures ...

Just had a look. That is a cracking shirt. Currently sold out in everything except Small and XXXL. Which is a gutter.

Can’t knock what the Gash are doing!! No money, no fans, s£/& ground and the list goes on, but they are a very well built side for league 1 and will be safely in the play offs this year.

They had an awful side last season and haven't upgraded much.

They will fall into midtable obscurity long before the season ends

They are playing without pressure as there's only two to go down, already on the beach.......how sad is that !

I was trying to be gracious, I didn’t have this opinion but lots on here considered their second half of season form a purple patch, same with Clarke-Harris’ form. I thought they’d finish about where they did, but many on here and on their shit forum held the opinion they had a purple patch and had lost significant quality (for sag standard anyway).

Oh, right.

Don’t know what time period defines a ‘purple patch’ but 6 months from the point they ditched that useless, over excited manchild seems a long time to be a ‘purple patch’.

Not sure if there really were as many City fans who thought they were dead certs for relegation as you suggest. Undoubtedly there were some but I’m afraid anyone looking at the situation in L1 this year can see that was wishful thinking.

I know more Gasheads who thought they’d get relegated this year than City fans so let’s not needlessly give them that as a stick to beat us with when the inevitably rack up enough points to stay up in what looks like a poor division from outside.

Yep, they abused GC’s daughter on social media, then some had the temerity to suggest it was City fans ... why would we care enough about their results to even contemplate impersonating them?! I don’t even know their results ... who the hell do they think they are?!

But, everyone in the world “loves da gas and hates da shit” - yeh right, they are just incredible ...

I posted months ago that any Div 3 club paying out £60k per week more than they are earning is going to do pretty well on the pitch.  Though one thing it won't be is sustainable.

I just spent the day in the company of a City legend who was very pleased to see Rovers win. Just sayin :)

I bet you asked him, if he was pleased and weren't our fans just brilliant, and it's much better to be in a proper ground etc. etc.

Can’t see you having a problem here, they are masters at this, claim to have this huge fanbase yet only a handful bother to turn up.

Often at league 1 and 2 level, teams ca n be competitive just by being given a simple shape to play and clear and concise orders to follow. 
If you are lucky enough to find a striker in a bit of form, you can do slightly better again. 
The best teams have some strength in depth or get lucky with a lack of injuries. It sounds like the gas are about to find out if they have either of these.

Course you have you're two sides of the same coin, let's be reyt two team cities are brilliant, there's about 70 clubs that don't get it, you've more in common with a Gas fan.

Ive loads of Blades mates and friendships going back 30 odd year, hating em on a Saturday and Derby day is fair game but they're still the lads you banter with, there's plenty of other clubs to truly despise, the Gas lads get what Bristol is about, verbally defend it like you lot would. Embrace the rivalry.

Can you imagine a championship Bristol derby at the former rugby ground.. mid day ko, about 1100 tickets, coach from Ashton Gate....not much to look forward to.

Not true if you like stale pasties and out of date fanta and enjoy the great outdoor camping experience being surrounded by canvas and manure.

Every single club in the League has fans who ridiculously overreact after a couple of bad results. 

Gaaheads are no different to us in that respect, no matter how much they pretend otherwise.

I agree with your general point, however, there’s every chance that you’ve probably never been to the memorial ground, or experienced what a complete embarrassment they are to our City. 

At least Weds & Utd are both good clubs, as are County & Forest, Liverpool & Everton, City & Utd, etc etc. 

Rovers are a stain on the entire map of the Bristish Isles, let alone Bristol itself.
