Bristol City show real class to us Irons

West-Ham-v-Hull-Sam-Allardyce-bubbles_2756968Bristol City is a very likeable club.

I’ve spent many afternoons inside Ashton Gate reporting games over the years and it has always been a hospitable , media friendly place where people know how to behave and respond.

So it came as absolutely no surprise to find that The Robins had decided to allow the Irons to take their bubbles machine to the ground this afternoon on the basis that they want “everybody to enjoy themselves.”

I’m an Iron to my backbone but credit where it’s due. Chairman Steve Lansdown and his team have shown real class and Claretandhugh would like to say ‘thank you’ on behalf of all our fans who we believe will have a winning afternoon out.

Football is full of measly and miserly-mouthed individuals without a thought in their heads for anyone but themselves.

And although it’s only a tiny gesture in the great scheme of things it shows some much needed qualityand our co chairman David Gold was quick to offer his thanks to the club.

He told ClaretandHugh: “Well done Bristol City – that is absolutely brilliant and shows real class. We’re grateful.”

A shower of bubbles over Ashton Gate following a day of incredible FA shocks will give the lads a lift as they take to the field.

Thank you City and “COME ON YOU IRONS!”
