Season Review - A Moderate Success

With another finish of 10th in the League, Bristol City have consolidated their status as a Championship side, with all three league finishes coming within the top ten, an excellent achievement for a side that was struggling to mount promotion from League One this time ten years ago.   There have been, of course, as many negatives as positives, but overall, another finish in the upper ....

Is Coppell The Man For City?

Alan Curbishley, Sean O’Driscoll, Phil Brown, Paul Tisdale and even Neil Warnock have all been linked to the City job. Rumours have come and gone about the above, with most of them amounting to nothing but pure and utter speculation. There is, however, one rumour that refuses to go away. The story follows that Steve Coppell is to become manager of Bristol City within the next few days. ....

Thanks For The Memories Gary

Despite being one of the many to call for Johnson’s head last week, his departure was still a sad occasion for the club. As he himself stated in an emotional press conference, it was clear that he had taken the club as far as he can, and it was the right time to leave the football club.   Johnson should, and will, be remembered well by City fans. When he joined, we were in disarray. ....

Blatter: You Have Irish Blood On Your Hands

After last night’s scenes in Paris, it got me thinking back to ‘that’ event when Freddie Sears scored against City and the goal that never was. Last night, to anyone who missed it (which unless you went on a vacation to Mars you won’t have), Thierry Henry blatantly handled the ball before crossing for Gallas to score the goal that sent France to the World Cup in a Play-Off ....

To Bubble Or Not To Bubble?

With just over 200 travelling to Swansea this evening, it seems that many City fans are choosing not to attend the fixture as a protest against the enforced travel by coach in this ‘bubble’ fixture. I am one of those fans. After doing the bubble to Cardiff this season (my 5th bubble fixture), enough is enough and I have voted with my feet, and will be listening at home tonight. ....

Warnock Lives Up To Reputation With Disgraceful Comments

Whilst one can understand the disappointment and dismay that Crystal Palace will have felt yesterday, the accusations that Gary Johnson and Bristol City Football Club have acted out of order are completely wide of the mark and utterly unacceptable.   The incident occurred in the first half, when Freddie Sears raced through on goal, scored, but the ball hit the bar holding the net to the ....

Adebola Set To Join Forest

Dele Adebola, who was awarded City’s ‘Player of the Season’ at the end of season awards last month, seems set to join Nottingham Forest in the next few days as his demands for a two-year contract appear to have led the target man’s future away from Ashton Gate.   In an interview with, Gary Johnson confirmed that Adebola is expected to join Forest, ....

Super Skuse Overlooked By Not So Marvellous Marvin?

During Bristol City’s sensational debut Championship season an icon emerged. Signed under the cloud of the marquee arrival of Lee Trundle, a widely unheard of versatile player slipped virtually under the radar as Bristol City Manager Gary Johnson secured the signature of the now talismanic Marvin Elliott.  After helping City announce themselves in the Championship with an ....

City's Future In Safe Hands

City’s goalkeeping future looks to be in safe hands at the moment with Adriano Basso, Chris Weale and Stephen Henderson all competing for the number one jersey.   Despite nearing his 34th birthday Adriano Basso has taken 16 clean sheets this season to make him one of the most successful goalkeepers in the Championship, Chris Weale looks to have put his injuries behind him and is ....

Can Dele Lead City To The Premier League?

The Robins recent surge up the Championship table has been, in no small part, due to a big man making a large impact in the Reds final third. Dele Adebola, who was signed amongst little fanfare last January, has become a pivotal figure in City’s attack, and with four goals in his last four games the 33-year-old is now winning over fans in all corners of Ashton Gate.   Bamberdele ....

Can Johnson Lead City To The Play-offs Once Again?

Shortly before Christmas, as the final whistle blew on a 2-1 home reverse against cup sensations Burnley to mark Bristol City’s fourth defeat in seven Championship outings, a certain gloom had descended on Ashton Gate.   With memories of a thrilling home play-off success and a trip to Wembley well and truly banished, it appeared that Gary Johnson’s men were fighting to stay in ....

City Pay The Penalty

Bristol City’s season appears to be gathering momentum at the moment with two crucial league wins being followed by two admirable performances in the FA Cup, but The Robins failure to score from penalties is providing an “Achilles Heel” to City’s campaign with just two attempts scored from a possible five.   Nicky Maynard and Michael McIndoe have both missed and ....

Trundle Joins Leeds On Loan

Bristol City have today announced that striker Lee Trundle will join Leeds United on a month’s loan. The deal will last until February 9th, and will be hoping to gain first team football at Elland Road.   Trundle has slipped down to 5th choice in the pecking order in the forward positions at Ashton Gate, finding himself behind in-form Nicky Maynard, Dele Adebola, Stern John and new ....

Orr Signs New Deal To Stay At City

Bristol City’s full back Bradley Orr yesterday signed a contract which will keep the popular scouser at Ashton Gate for at least the next two and a half years. Orr, who was previously on the transfer list due to his refusal to sign a new contract, seems to have changed his mind and committed his future to The Robins.   Orr, who claimed that other clubs had ‘shown an ....

The Fa Cup - Something To Savour

We welcome the New Year in the world of Bristol City with an intriguing FA Cup encounter with last year’s winners Portsmouth, and it seems only right to begin by acknowledging how nice it still feels to be starting our FA Cup story in January rather than November. For almost a decade of third tier football, City’s FA Cup would start and, more often than not, end before Christmas. ....

Johnson Ready For His Shot At The Bigtime

In light of the two management roles made vacant at Premiership sides Sunderland and Blackburn, many managers were considered. Some candidates had Premiership experience, some had experience abroad, and some had little or no coaching experience at all. However, one manager was ignored altogether, and when looking at his record and undoubted pedigree, it’s hard to see why Gary Johnson ....

Deal Orr No Deal

Of all the news that occurred on November 27th this was not what I, and many other City fans, would have been able to predict. Bradley Orr placed on the transfer list after rejecting the “take it or leave it” contact offer that was proposed. If a club comes in for him then he will leave the club. This choice, and it was his to make, has angered many fans who have accused him of ....

Goal Line Technology - The Debate Continues

Last weekend, at home to Swansea, Michael McIndoe’s high cross to the back post  was met by the head of ‘Marvellous’ Marvin Elliott who appeared to have guided the ball past the Swans’ keeper and over the line for a long-awaited City breakthrough.   However, far from the ball rippling the net to give a clear sign to all in the ground that a goal had been ....

What City Need - And Don't Need - In January

The January sales are almost upon us and, in stark contrast to last season, Gary Johnson’s phone will ring red hot as he attempts to patch up his sides misfortune.   Saturday’s controversial stalemate with Championship new boys Swansea left City languishing below mid-table with a solitary win in their last nine outings. More worryingly, there appear few signs for optimism. ....

Has Bradley Made The Right Choice?

So Bradley Orr has gone on the transfer list. Of all the players at our club, he was the last one I expected to see do such a thing.   After his time spent at Her Majesty’s pleasure, the club stuck by him and made him the player he is. He was able to cement his place in the team at right back and has chipped in with some very important goals, most notably at Scunthorpe last year, ....
