Hannover?

I need to pay more attention to the title of threads. I though this was “hangover?” and was expecting tales of excess cider during lockdown

A short quote from the article.

‘The Friendship Cup’ celebrated the link during the 1966/67 campaign. There were home and away matches played with City losing out on both occasions!

 

On November 16th Danny Bartley and John Giles scored in a 3-2 defeat at Ashton Gate, witnessed by 4,599 supporters.

The away final was played in Germany, where 10,000 spectators witnessed the German side’s 2-1 win on May 23rd 1967. Fred Ford scored from the penalty spot.

I remember all three of those players highlighted, but wasn't the latter our manager at the time? I am not being pernickety, but should that not have been Tony Ford who scored the penalty?

Bit odd, must be some sort of sponsorship involved. Never mentioned them before and now social media can't stop 

Probably something (even somewhat) relative to be able to have on social media for content

There used to be, maybe still is, a Bristol-Hannover school exchange programme, just like the Bristol - Bordeaux programme, when I was at school in the 60's.

I  participated in the student exchange back in 1969. Saw Hannover 96 play Hamburg and everyone was cheering "Uwe" (for Uwe Seeler, the Hamburg player)... even the home fans. The guy was a national hero.  Also spent 6 months working in Hannover prior to starting college in '72 and saw a bunch of games at the old Niedersachsenstadion. That place had a lot of character before it was redeveloped. Many fond memories of the city and have followed the team's fortunes ever since.

I was part of this very exchange in 1982.

A few years later (69/70?) City played Bordeaux H & A.

Nice pre season tourno between City, Porto Bordeaux and Hannover?

Never mind the tourno, just a pre season tour. A couple of days between games and we travelling fans could have a City related holiday.

I always end up with a Hannover after too many bottles of Bordeaux.

Seriously though, a pre season tour or even a tournament with our twin towns would be a great idea.

Just as long as you don't throw up in a Porto loo

I went on the Bristol Hannover school exchange program in 1998. Two weeks over there then had my exchange student in Nailsea for two weeks. He took me to a game. Remember they lost 3-1.

Yeah, I think you're right, Fred Ford would have been 50 then

Just looked up perth in Australia for twin cities. Most are in japan, china and Greece. Also perth in Scotland. With twin cities it is encouraged to interact on business, sharing opportunities, tourism and sharing of gifts. 

I bet there has to be some kind of good single malt coming out of Perth in Scotland some one can send me 🤣

Tbilisi's ground is reminiscent of Eastville and they play in blue & white....

The trouble with Guangzhou is the distance from the pitch.

I have always believed that we should have an annual, bi-annual, or tri-annual football tournament with Hanover, Bordeaux, who were the first twinning arrangements Bristol entered into after the last World War. To have undertaken a twinning with a city that we had been at war with two or three years earlier, told me that Bristol was a forward looking City and deserved tremendous credit.

Likewise, to twin with Bordeaux also gave a signal that we supported what they had done for freedom during that terrible period in our history. The signing of Alec Eisentrager, a year later, confirmed that our Football Club were also willing to look forward rather than back. 

Such a shame that we, as a country, have now preferred to become so insular!

We're twinned with some nice places, Porto is fantastic. I did the Bordeaux and Hanover exchanges while at school in the early 80s. Still in contact and welcomed the daughter of my German exchange to our house last year, which was nice. I saw Bordeaux beat Nantes in about 83/4 with Alain Giresse, Tigana and Battiston playing for Bordeaux. Both Hanover and Bordeaux stadiums were quite interesting at the time. Bordeaux was an oval with a vaulted roof all the way around with fans sat on the banked cycle track around the pitch. Hanover was located next to a huge lake, the Maschsee. The floodlights looked like 4 enormous angled steel girders that seemed to defy gravity.
