  1. Like all of you guys I was bitterly disappointed with the result against Sunderland. Another season in L1 beckons and you’ll already know that there are several decent teams in there - it’s really difficult to get out of. I know as City were in L1 for several seasons, losing in the play offs twice. You’ll be facing two of our local clubs in Bristol Rovers and Forest Green Rovers who are owned by Dale Vince a dedicated eco warrior and rigid vegetarian who only allows vegetarian pies to be sold at the New Lawn and compared to Hillsborough is a garden shed! I’ll continue to look out for your results and really hope you get automatic promotion.
  2. NP inherited a shambles of a club and it’s taken him all of last season to rebuild the club, both on and off the pitch. He’s also been hampered by lengthy injuries to senior players and had little choice but to play youngsters and of course what you get with young inexperienced players in inconsistency and that’s been reflected in results. That said several of the youngsters have really impressed and that’s promising for next season Like all clubs there’s an element of the fan base who slag off whoever the manager is and Nige has been subjected to that - pretty much all of it online. I seriously doubt any manager reads social media! However results did pick up over the last few games and we went unbeaten for 5 games until losing at Huddersfield in the last match of the season. City have FFP issues as well which will have an impact on what business we can do this summer. We’ll almost certainly lose one or two of our starlets. The majority of City understand that Nige has had lots of issues to cope with on and off the pitch and are right behind him. However if we have another poor season next campaign the pressure will certainly be on.
  3. Haven’t been on here for a while but I’ve been looking out for your results over the season and will be watching a sold out Hillsborough tonight and am optimistic that you’ll beat the Mackams and reach Wembley. I’d love to see you guys back in the Championship - as Nigel Pearson would. He took a trip down memory lane on Robins TV the last time City were at Hillsborough and talked about where he used run out before a match and reminiscing his days at Sheffield Wednesday. He’s definitely got a soft spot for the club. Good result tonight lads and lasses! Good luck
  4. I posted it so that you guys will know what our club think of your situation. To some Owls fans that can be reassuring. We are all football fans after all. Its very unusual on otib to see a thread devoted to another football club. The only recent one was about Brentford. Many of our fans are envious of how well they’re run and managed and how well they’ve done. Now they’re in the Promised Land. Well done to them.

  6. We’ve had quite a number of them at City over the years............
  7. What can you guys tell us about him? He’s been released after several seasons with you and he’s now apparently on City’s radar. Other than him being a CB I don’t anything about his strengths and weaknesses. Btw - your previous full back Jack Hunt was released by Nigel Pearson
  8. Bristol is a university city. There’s UWE, the Uni of the West of England and Bristol University. The night life is fantastic for students and the Highbury Vaults is a popular student haunt as is Whiteladies Rd. Lots of accommodation available much of it around the City centre. I never went to uni but if I Bristol would have been my choice.
  9. Question on our forum, Otib - have BBs legs gone? You guys will know.
  10. Oddly enough we same the same thing about the Yorkshire accent........:).

  12. Desperately felt for you guys earlier today. I watched the game on TV and became really involved hoping Derby would implode and you guys would win the game. Sadly the draw sent you down. Even tho you know there’s little chance it’s still a horrible feeling when you do get relegated, I know it well having been relegated with City several times over the years but you will bounce back. Unless we draw you in the cup I won’t be visiting Hillsborough until the season after next - see you then guys. Good luck next season, I’ll be looking out for your results.
  13. Dean Ashton said on Quest that that BB’s penalty miss was his first ever in the league. Is that right?
