If all attempts at renting a training ground have failed what will the team do when play resumes ? 

Use Ashton Gate like your Reserves and Youth Teams do for their games (well so we were led to believed a few years ago)  😂😂😂

on this date in 1936 a player called joe payne scored 10 goals on his debut for luton town against bristol rovers a record which still stands , what a lovely man !

Joe wasn't supposed to have played that day either IIRC.

He travelled with the players but one of them became Ill so Joe had to play.

A real sliding doors moment then. Going from a player very few of us would ever have heard of to a hero to 80% (and rising) of Bristol!

How big are the horses up the Mem these days????

Or maybe the fans that bother to go are just angry dwarfs?

It must be true, I mean when I was a child (not an extremely tall one either), I swear I have fed horses the odd sugar cube and polo on school trips etc, and I cannot remember needing a step ladder or chair to stand on. 

The reply is just as bizarre, couldn't he/she realise it was just utter nonsense.

Re Joe Payne.

This extract has been taken from Wikipedia. If we have any City fans in the Birmingham area, could photos of the plaque be taken and posted on this site (when Boris lifts the lockdown)?

 

Payne died in Luton on 22 April 1975, aged 61.[10] On 13 April 2006, to mark the 70th anniversary of his 10-goal record, a plaque was unveiled by Geoff Thompson, then chairman of the Football Association, on the wall of the Miner's Arms public house in Manor Road, Brimington Common. The site is adjacent to the now-demolished house where he used to live, and overlooks a park where he played football. The unveiling was attended by two of Payne's nephews.[3][8] A lounge at Kenilworth Road stadium was named in honour of Payne

I thought the person who did it got done in court ?

I work with a Gashead that knows the guy who got done for punching a horse the day they got relegated from the Football League.

I don’t know why any Saghead would think we made it up? Why would you make up punching a horse? They’re ******* massive...

It’s one of the most impressive ‘dumb’ things you can do and they are impressively dumb, there’s no doubt about that. It’s up there with trying to smash a Minibus window with your head or playing a game of ‘Cricket’ that could get you on the Sex Offenders Register.

The miracle that is googling.... and paying a £5 subscription to OTIB so I can upload!

If it is the same Brimington, then I think City fans living near Chesterfield might be more able to help....😉
