Great Things You Heard Opposition Fans Say About Us After The Match


Recommended Posts

1.  Hartlepool United 1 Bristol City 2 (Peacock, Tinnion) 2004

City win away at Hartlepool with a Brian Tinnion screamer on a run of eleven straight wins. 

After the game. "When we got the ball they were all over us like a rash. When they got the ball it was pass pass pass." Hartlepool fan. 

2. Sheffield Wednesday 3 Bristol City 2 (Abraham 2). 2016

City go 2-0 up away to Sheffield Wednesday with two Abraham goals. Then they get a penalty. Instead of Abraham taking it for his hat-trick, Tomlin takes it. With no proper run up, he hits the base of the post, the ball zings all the way up to the halfway line, and Gary O'Neill gets a second yellow trying to stop a break away goal. Wednesday, inspired, come back to win 3-2. So Abraham, a teenager, for the rest of the match, has to lead the line for City on his own battling for scraps against two defenders.

After the game. "They sell Kodjia for 15 million and then get this kid in on a free........................insane bit of business." Wednesday fan.

3. Bristol City 2 (Diedhiou, Taylor) Stoke City 0 2017

On a run to the League Cup semi finals knocking out four Premier League clubs, a much changed Bristol City cruise to an easy home win against Stoke. 

After the game. "Blimey, if that is what their second team is like, what must their first team be like?" Stoke fan. 

4. Manchester City 2 Bristol City 1 (Reid) 2017

No team has ever won the English League by a greater margin than the 2017/8 Manchester City team. They were beating teams 6 and 7 nil every week. But Bristol City made a point of attacking them when we had the ball, went one nil up, and only lost to them by a last-minute Aguero goal. The next morning four Premier League managers rang up Lee Johnson for advice on how to play Manchester City. The national media were genuinely impressed by the way Bristol City had competed.

After the game. "Bristol City are the best English team we have played this season bar none." Man City fan. 

5. Bristol City 2 (Eliasson, Diedhiou) QPR 1 2019

City come back from 1-0 down to beat QPR with an Eliasson curler and a late Fammy penalty after the awful Matt Smith had given QPR the lead. 

After the game online. "Bristol City's Nicolas Eliasson is Swedish-Brazilian. That's nationality. Not pubic hair formation." QPR blogger.

Not really to do with the match itself but it is nice to hear how many away fans look forward to coming to Bristol as a city and how a lot make a weekend of it as it`s one of their favourite away trips.

Cue many jokes about enjoying it because they always go home with the points now!

Not really a story about us, but one that I found funny at the time. 

Years ago, circa 1998 I booked a City coach for our trip to Wycombe Wanderers, on the day there were about six coaches, being an assortment of Peter Carol and Blue Iris. 

Just before we pulled into the services we caught one Blue Iris coach up that had the players and fans of Weston Super Mare on board and was decked out with flags accordingly, it pulled in to the services with us.  As the fans from all seven coaches piled off at the same time I heard someone say "Bloody hell Weston travel in huge numbers".
