I laughed out loud when Branston scored. A few somersaults in front of the City dugout would have been nice. Duke beaten again at his near post. That's two soft goals he's let in in the last three games. For Gods sake Parkinson bring back Johnny Mac!!!

Okay "Pride of Yorkshire" and "Parader123", you obviously went today and so the incident, so please describe EXACTLY what you saw! Nothing? So, who is the idiot?

According to press box, it wasn't Brown that clattered Meredith, it was Clucas and he had already been booked earlier. The incident happened right in front of dug out and PP said Doyle ran over to stop anything happening. There were punches thrown, but NOBODY knows by who. Assistant Ref or 4th official claimed Doyle had kicked someone, but the player and his manager both deny this.

Most of us just want justice. hopefully the F A want this too and will deliver it if Doyle did nothing wrong. Im hoping coverage confirms Doyle dud nothing wrong.


anyway; hanson scored away from home so the haters can look for a new scapegoat.

Good point at a place BCFC usually get nothing....sounds like an interesting game to say the least....now the players can relax a little with no mid week game and come back refreshed next Friday when we hopefully knock Brentford out of the cup. Well done to everyone involved down at Bristol.. management the squad of players and BCFC supporters, you've done the club proud.

But anyone who doesnt share your opinion should grow up? How exactly does that work? A bit sensitive arent you macca? One of us clearly needs to grow up a little.

City must appeal a red card for Doyle. TV shows he did nothing wrong but gets a straight red yet the initial challenge only gets a yellow; and we are supposed to respect refs?

Fear ye not people. Doyles red card WILL be rescinded. Even the blinkered old duffers at the FA will struggle to find a reason to uphold it. Doyle races over to vent his spleen at the Rovers player lying on the floor and is man handled by a Rovers player/players before McHugh drags him away from the scene. Doyle is clearly angry and shouting and pointing but there is no kick, no punches, no intentional contact in an aggressive manner in any way shape or form. The only time Nathan makes contact with an opponent in an aggressive way is to free himself from the the grasp of a Rovers player that took exception to him standing over and berating the Bristol player that nearly broke Doyles team mate in half.

But the problem is I do uphold and value your opinion even if I don't agree with it. I just don't think any supporter who thinks Hanson should get more goals is a hater, to call someone that is just childish. After all Davies Parkinson and now the big man himself has said it. Many in here have admitted the value he brings to the team but have picked up in the fact he still needs to score more, this does not make them haters,only fans with opinions.

Delighted for James Hanson--No doubt he will dedicate the goal to his new baby.

Perhaps more dream crosses to JH 's Head are needed. (FURTER- Training Ground Practice Required).
*
I hope the Club back Doyle--(but he should not have got involved). Even though I can understand how he would be incensed, from a disgraceful unnecessary- crunching tackle. Totally wrong at the end of a Match , and by the Dug-Out?. What was the offending player hoping to achieve--I wonder!?. Totally Stupid Action.
*
I hope The Club back Doyle--and not change their minds--as in the Ravenhill incident. I still feel the Club should back, and show total loyalty, to the City Players.
*
Would still like to see 3 Players up-front. For more effective striking power. With players in the box area, to head or pass to, when balls are pumped up, from defensive areas.

Good point won--Well Played BCFC.

He has had quality crosses like the one on Tuesday night that skimmed across his fore head when he was unchallenged. He has also admitted to getting the chances and not finishing them like he knows he should. Finally he has broken his duck and he may now relax and take more of these chances that HAVE been coming his way. No one thinks James us a poor player just one that was a little off form in front if goal

I think the club will appeal but will the FA rescind it? Personally I doubt it and we will run the risk of increasing the ban further for daring to appeal meaning he will miss the arsenal game. The FA seem to be very reluctant to overturn any refereeing decisions at the moment even when the evidence is overwhelming in favour of the wronged player. Its wrong but there you go

Sounded like a good following of BCFC fans down at the game....seen the goals but the highlights didn't include the chance right at the end of the game involving Connell...looking at the stats lol..if that had gone in BCFC would have won down there for the first time ever. So an excellent point that could have been three.

Unfortunately you are talking about the F.A they don't do Justice only how much they can get in fines. Then again will the club appeal? I doubt it after the other farces we have had at the hands of poor referees.

Bantambhoy 9:10pm Sun 25 Nov 12

Watched it on a recording of the FL show. It looks like Doyle was aggresive running towards the 'melee' but was pulled away by McHugh, also he gave lots of 'verbals' aimed at the Bristol players. I don't know whether that warrants a straight red, I wouldn't think so but any appeal will depend on the ref's report. If he admits he might have got it wrong then I guess the club will appeal. If he cites Doyle it will not be worth it. It still looks like 'Dukeys' weakness is long range shots low down. I thought all three of our goals were superb. Here's hoping for an appeal.
