End of the Season

This weekend, as far as i'm concerned, has marked the end of the current football season. Yes, the big boys and the teams in the play-offs are still going, but Bristol City are done, and so that's it as far as me not being able to fully concentrate on anything come Saturday afternoon.

Not a particularly memorable season, although it was nice to finish off the season on a high at Hillsborough, especially with the last goal of the campaign being put past Peacock!!

At least this year I can concentrate on my exams now, rather than spending too much time concerned about the play-offs like last year!

Although my attendence was a bit poor this season (not too sure my season ticket was justified in the end) there were some momorable experiences throughout the season. Beating Hull and Brentford at home comfortably and celebrating a last minute winner at Walsall were probably the highs. Losing too easily at home to Bournemouth and away to Brentford were the lows (although at least we had a bit of a laugh during the latter game) Sitting with the opposition fans for the first time ever at Hull was different (especially the looks when we celebrated our equaliser!) and you've never really seen it all unless you've sung "6–5, we're gonna win 6–5" when 5–0 down away from home!!

In regards to other teams; I was glad to see Reading miss the play-offs again (Lots of people back home support them, and I was always slightly jealous after they left us behind a few years back despite our regular beatings of them!) I was also amused more than anything about Wigan's promotion today. Will they actually fill their ground now that they've hit the big time?
Would have been nice to see MK Dons go down, partly because of Danny Wilson, but mainly because they shouldn't be able to do what they've done to that club over there, and relegation would have reduced the chances of anything similar ever happening again.

Apart from that, it wouldn't have been a bad weekend of football, City winning :) and Reading missing the play-offs. If only that silly £$%* Earnshaw hadn't scored and denied me the best part of £100. grrrrrrr

In a final attempt to wind up any Wendies, I hope that either Tranmere go up (they were the third best team after all and after the last two years I know what it feels like to finish there and not go up), or Hartlepool do (given how close they were to the final last year before we scored 2 in stoppage time to beat them!)

Roll on 2005–6!

  2. Good Lord, another real life bonefide Bristol City fan in Warwick. Can it possibly be true?!

    It's been a random season, I have to say I got very frustrated toward the end of last term spending 20 quid on petrol to watch the tripe that was being served up.

    I think Tinnion is finding his feet now, and the addition of a couple of decent centre backs should see us pushing for auto next year.

  3. It certainly is true!

    It's only the fact that I have to brave a shoddy train service every time I want to get down that I haven't endured some of the worst performances, especially those two friday night games!

    It was good to see lots of youth coming through at the end of the season. If they can keep it going for a whole season and we can get, like you say, at least one big defender and hopefully keep Leroy, then we've got a good chance.

    To be fair I think it might be a better chance without Wednesday there too, as I can see them being strong if they don't go up…
