Endless problems with the clubs social media output


Recommended Posts

You clearly engage with social media far more than me.

I don't engage with it AT ALL. No facepalmbookshit. No Twitter. No Instaprick. Nada.

But - unfortunately - as far as the outside world are concerned - these people are viewed as speaking for all of us: you, me, and everyone else associated with BCFC.

ucFk that.

And ucFk them.

I unfollowed that account months ago. Personally find it to be a conveyor belt of childish and annoying content.

Who are they targeting? 8 - 16 year olds presumably, which is fair enough, but by doing that you alienate everyone one else!!

Perhaps the club could create an account for adult fans?

Actually think there’s scope for something like this. The content is so youth-market “banter” orientated now. Some of us just want straightforward club news and information.

They could call it @BristolCityGrownUps

If a fan was really bothered create it, follow the club account and retweet relevant tweets for everyone else

I've genuinely considered unfollowing the club twitter page for ages now.  It's probably not that different to other clubs' but I do think it is embarrassing and out of touch

Freaking joke tbh, why even waste the time to tweet about damn Leeds to begin with? My half-blind Grandmother could run a Twitter account better than this.

Trouble is, they'd have to employ adults then too, mate.

I knew this would post would polarise. It’s called banter, I’m sure you thing plenty of stuff is funny that isn’t to others. 
 

Personally I thought this was a bit of a miss rather than a hit like some of the other posts, but I find it’s usually 75/25 with the content for me.

Don't know why you're all getting so worked up because a) I thought it was reasonably funny and b) it's f#*$ing Leeds Utd and their fans are far and away the biggest pricks around

Yes indeed, commiserations bro, you do have to live them with them!

And PS -  it wasn't funny.

Some of their stuff is quite successful (goal gifs...) but there does seem to be a bit of a disparity between the smooth, professional image we like to portray 98% of the time and some of the crap we put on Twitter.

Wouldn't be surprised if they’re made to rein it in a bit. It’s not like social media is a revenue driver for us, so if it’s turning off fans then it’s failing.

I think the line to draw is between celebration of City's success, and laughing at/with ourselves - and trying to mock other clubs. The latter doesn't really work. Looks cheap. And in this case - given the relative statures of Bristol City and Leeds United - more than a bit pathetic.

I don't know who is in charge of the club's social media but we need an upgrade.

Thank you for calling it "banter". That says it all.

Because, hate to tell you this, but "banter" equates to "puerile and embarrassing " for a helluva lot of us.

No idea how it's banter

But is this not an official club twitter feed?

The club would never dream of posting "banter" on the official site so why is it accepted on Twitter?

*Work with them. Don't live with them any more. But they are mainly arseholes, with some kind of weird God complex about their stature in the game which so seems to manifest in this off notion that "everyone's against them" and they are the quintessential "spend money we don't have and **** the consequences for anyone else" club. But other than that they're all fine

well done Leeds.....the Premier League needs you and you've been absent for too long

That would have made a much better post. There is no point in picking a fight with a club the size of Leeds Utd.

Like them or loathe them they are a proper big club which make the likes of Villa look small.

Ah right, so by inference that would make somebody like me what, beneath you? Asinine? 
 

Just because you don’t have the same taste as somebody else doesn’t mean it wrong. Not is it a reflection on the other individual. And please, please don’t make it sound like you’re in the majority because you have no facts behind that at all. 
 

Humour like many things is subjective. My original point was the same.

All out of likes for today 👍

PS. The combination of an arrogant Yorkshire mindset and their, in all fairness, significant achievements between 1965 and 1975, does explain - if not excuse - the behaviour that winds us all up these days.

I take it you don't like Leeds then? 🤭

you're beginning to sound like you are associated with the people who write these tweets

It’s been awful for about 4 years now. Pointless saying anything about it as you just get predictable comments like this

Not even close. I just don’t believe in belittling others because they have different tastes on something so basic.
