Usual crap in support of TR, who I hate is associated with the club, glad the club itself has tried a lot to distance itself from him. Think people expect us to chant support back.

Lot of other stuff - "small town in asia" and a lot of abuse directed toward some local people in a box close to the away support. I was in town as well beforehand and there was a load of chanting about "P*kis" as well.

Pretty much the only time the Bristol City fans were heard yesterday was when that stuff was being chanted.

Its happening with increasing regularity at the moment and really feel the club should be making more of it, the local police dont seem to care at all.

Well the police have had a reputation in the past for certain things !
Agreed. And lets face it, they have enough on there plate dealing with similar issues in the wider town outside of the football club being around. Think there is a general reluctance on their part of getting too involved with what outsiders are coming in and saying on a Saturday as a result shining more of a spotlight on things.

Do feel the club can do more to highlight it and in pushing toward the police stamping it out, it does really sour the atmosphere for me.

Fuck me the atmosphere inside English grounds is getting worse, can hear the players talking to each other in the Wigan Vs Forest game.

Grabban should have burred that chance, Wigan aren't very good and considering they can't buy a win away from home I expect them to be in another survival scrap.

Not conceded a goal at home since August pal...

You’re right though, we’re in a relegation battle. Stoke and Huddersfield being so shit has masked our position. Now they’ve got themselves together our position in the table should naturally drop.

6,700 seems like an odd one, must have been bad weather.
Yes it was midweek and snowing and below freezing for about 10 days, I remember it well because i was in New Zealand enjoying drinking in the sun, at least you give honest crowds on actual people attending, amount of crowds I've seen given at ours and many others all just include every season ticket holder even when thousands arent there.

We had all that when Zola and Jokanavic came in - always making changes for away games .

Feb 2018 was in the middle of Beast from the East .

Stoke at home tonight, typical they'd have picked up 2 good wins before they play us. We need 3 points tonight to make sure the point we got on Friday was a good one, not expecting too many changes to the side, Westwood will probably still be injured and Lees wont be ready either, think Forestieri will start and Murphy should be dropped from the 18, fancy us to pick up 3 points here.

Not massively confident about getting a result against Leeds.

Expecting a few changes from Saturday, Browne & Harrop coming in maybe.

Well that was a painful watch, happy with the win but we really need to step it up against Leeds on Saturday. Goal came from a Stoke mistake and other than a Harris effort in the second half we created next to nothing, we just haven't got enough goals in the team at the minute but we are extremely solid and that's a 6th clean sheet of the season. Up to 3rd which feels ridiculous really. If we beat Leeds on Saturday I just might start believing.
