“I hope Nigel uses these games to give some of the fringe players a runout.
I’m not saying we shouldn’t try to win – but the youngsters should play some part.”
“Nah play for the win, I want us to be in the position that we survived even if Derby never had a points reduction. I don’t want to be that club that only survived because another was penalised.”
“Sheff Utds form has been a bit patchy of late, be nice to do some damage to their top 6 aspirations”
“it would be magic to royally screw with their play off chances, but when do we do anything other than turn over in these circumstances?”
“City looked really solid on Monday and never looked like losing the game and that’s very different to many games I’ve watched this season!
The players will go into Mondays game full of confidence and another win will make a happy Easter.”
“Three teams in the football league 92 are yet to win back-to-back games this season.
Bristol City are still one of those teams.”
“Chance of back of back wins for the first time on Monday and they put Keith Stroud in charge”
“And that is confirmed I won’t be attending.”
“Not with Keith “small man syndrome” Stroud in charge. Consistently one of the worst refs when he refs a game involving City”
“Sheff Utd they haven’t liked us since the play off game in 1988!!”
“Will be a fair few about Monday. Bank Holiday 5:30 kick off and plenty from Sheffield attending. What could possibly go wrong . Going back a fair few years it kicked off big time with them at Ashton Gate .”
“The “threat of violence” was not as prevalent as that through the 80s, not at AG, because we spent all but one of the ten seasons dawdling in the two lowest divisions, where the visitors to AG were often York, Darlington, Southend, Bury, Walsall, Lincoln, Gillingham etc who “travelled light” and didn’t do much in the way of that sort of thing, whereas in the top two divisions things are more lively and frequent in that department.
Visits from Millwall, Pompey, Villa, Sheffield Weds and Utd, West Ham being notable exceptions.”

Ahh the good old days never to be forgotten..
