THE'RE COMING FOR US.

Recommended Posts

Given their league position and current form it's not as laughable a claim as it once was is it, hate to say it but unless we buck up our ideas we could well be playing them next season. (in the Championship).

Right....and?

If they get promoted then fair play to them, I’d rather that than have us relegated and join them in L1.

Its only the Gas FFS 🤣

Everything that is wrong with our fanbase summed up in one OP.

More worried about Rovers catching us up than the fact that we are capitulating in another attempt to get to the top flight.

Sad and embarrassing.

The day I have the slightest worry about anything regarding those to$$ers is the day I give up with football.

Thankfully that day will never exist.

If they ever gain promotion to the Championship, which is possible, they would be torn to shreds in this league and be relegated in one swift plummet.

Whilst in reality we are just 1 league apart, the distance between us is like comparing the Sun to Pluto.

Pillred, I suggest you come out from under the bed, no need to worry!

Absolutely!

They don't have the Money.

They don't have the Ground.

They don't have the Fanbase.

If somehow they manage to fluke it this season, and my god L1 must be complete horseshite if that pub team are up there, it would be so so funny watching them get hammered every week.:laugh:

I think the lowest points tally is something like 23, Blackpool. I think they'd be lucky to get 12 points all season.

You don’t think their manager leaving will have any effect on them then?

That bit of news only came out after the game but no, with Ian Holloway looking like he might be their next manager.

Cheeky B*****rd who said I was worried? but them being in the same League as us is not as far fetched as it was.

Let’s face it we will be in the same league as the Gas next year as they are playing very well and most probably get into the championship next season. This will be good for Bristol football but a bit embarrassing for City. 

Rovers are continuing to do well and we are continually slipping.

Gas are having a good season, no denying it but confident they will slip away a bit. If they do go up, fair play with the resources they have, I’d love a league game with them again.

Let's see how they get on in the January window, if they have got anybody any good they wont be able to hold on to them if other clubs are after any of their players and I don't see them being able to strengthen.

I'm not sure how we're continually slipping? Our year-on-year league finishes get better with each season, crowds are growing and so is our reputation around the country as a progressive club. The number of people in the footballing world who see us as a premiership club in the waiting grows each year. Rovers, meanwhile, aren't talked about outside of their own postcode. We are light years ahead of them in every conceivable way and even ending up in the same league as them wouldn't  change that. 

Personally would relish a league derby against them, but if it doesn't happen I shan't be upset.

I won’t get an answer to this but why would Rovers getting promotion to the Championship be embarrassing for City?

If a club like Burton can make it to the 2nd tier then a similar sized club like Rovers could as well. 

As for continually slipping, we’ve improved our League position in each of the last 5 seasons.

**** me

Perhaps not slipping but lucky in the position we are on past performances

They will do well to finish in the top half imo. Manager looks like he's gone (and if he isn't he has probably upset the board anyway, and that relationship has gone sour), main striker will be gone in January, I would bet good money they will not spend anything in January even if they get good money for Harris. If a new manager comes in he will not be given anything either unless they ship players out. They haven't got a pot to pee in, but if the unthinkable did happen and they managed to go up it they would go straight back down - and would get them in even more debt. Imagine Wally realising the players have watertight contracts and they all get huge pay rises for promotion.....

Wouldn’t you be embarrassed as city have always been the number 1 club in Bristol for many years and the gas over the other side of bristol not even in the football league not so many years ago. If that’s not a good enough answer I do not know what is

Sorry mate, no it isn’t a good answer.

1) Even if the Gas were to get promoted we’d still be the ‘number 1’ club in Bristol.

2) Anyone can get promoted. Getting prompted is one thing, sustaining Championship football is another thing and I don’t believe for one second that their owners want to spend the money needed to make them competitive. 

3) In 2013 Yeovil leapfrogged is into the Championship whilst we were relegated back to L1, arguably a far more ‘embarrassing’ situation. Somehow I managed to survive that shame.

4) Burton and Luton have been Non League in the last 10 years and we’ve played them on an even footing in the Championship in recent years.

I get very quickly bored of Sagheads telling me that we should feel embarrassed because we’re only 10/15/20 League places above them etc as if they’re proud to be SHIT. If they get promoted it is not embarrassing for us, no more so than any other L1 team getting promoted.

Not sure how much more simply I can put it but for you I will make an exception, first of all where did I say we should get promoted? I said IF we don't go up we could well be playing them next season that is all. The clue was IF we don't buck our ideas up, in other words improve on what we currently are. meaning at the moment I don't think we are good enough is that clear enough for you?

Great for Bristol football if it happened and would love to take my son to the derby but unlikely - Gas overarching IMO.

I agree, think they will ultimately fail, but they have surprised me how well they are doing.

So you’d be so annoyed if we don’t buck our ideas up and get promoted. Why don’t we just get promoted and then win the prem ..... wake up

Well considering I retired over 3 years ago and the schools don't break up until the end of the week I wouldn't know. But yes retirement is great thanks.

Strange because you have the mind set of a kid ohhhh it’s going to be all Bristol city’s fault if we don’t buck our ideals and rovers get promoted. God forbid the thought of having to play them 😂
