Anyone know of any video clips of the game ? I usually manage to find something somewhere after a game but I've drawn a blank for this one.

Whatever happens on the pitch or between management supporters of both clubs should remember we are long suffering non league club fans; unlike the rubbish spouted from Government, we are ALL in it together. Neutral

Interesting debate; now I can't decide whether to watch Liverpool v Spurs on BT Sport or listen to City v Dover on AK tomorrow night! Wink

I don't think there is any contest lads. it's got to be the Dover game.
Many of our fans are disappointed not to draw you in the Semi's. would have been a cracking tie. and no doubt you may well have fancied yourselves for the tie against us too. we ain't playing brilliantly at the moment so the cup i providing our only respite. noting though how we won the first tie 5-0. second tie 4-0 third round 2-0 and quarter final 1-0, the semi should go 0-0. well we will all see.
As I live pretty close I have an idea I may well come down and support you tomorrow. have fond memories if the days when I came to watch Bristol Rovers down there. atmosphere was electric and if you can get a decent house tomorrow night it should be just the same.
Well we can hope. BTW does anyone live around the Keynsham area. can you tell me what the bus fare is to Twerton from there. Train fare seems a bit steep. and I am not on brilliant money at the moment.
Looking forward to sampling another ham roll from that brilliant bakery just below your place too.

It's £3.70 return on the train from Keynsham to Oldfield Park and is a lot less hassle than getting a bus over. I don't know what the bus fare is but the train is probably cheaper!

and you will need to get there really early to get a ham roll before the bakers close at 5.30.

Dover fan here in peace! Hoping to get over for the replay tonight (if only to avoid having to listen to it on your online broadcast- second half was a terrible commentary!!) and hoping for a classic cup tie. This thread is an interesting read, and great testimony to the spirit of non-league football. I wont dwell on Saturday, that is history and a lot of silly things went on, but you gave us a good fight (literally!) and I hope we are up for it tonight. We've a good option to replace our suspended forward - madness that your guy can play despite a straight red but that is a rule inconstancy that shouldnt exist within one tournament. Doubt if our manager's son will fetaure tonight- if he does hope that he has better studs in his boots ;-)

Finally, thoughts to all those affected by the terrible accident last night- hope that respect is shown to the victims with a minutes silence at the beginning.

Thanks for this, kalahari. Yes, let's hope there has been time for everyone to calm down from Saturday and we have a great game tonight.

Totally agree that yesterday's tragic events in Weston put things into perspective and I too hope there will be an opportunity tonight for supporters of both sides to show their respects to those so badly affected. Can someone from the club please confirm that this will be the case.

And after the friction between the 2 forums since Saturday, it was really heartening to see this thread on yours...

I completely agree. Whilst I thought Diallo's red card was harsh, it should be the same punishment for both. If he'd been banned for tonight and Payne wasn't I'd be livid.

And yes, I hope something will be done to acknowledge those and it really does put things in perspective.

Usually plenty of parking near the ground.  Many use the long hard standing on the Lower Bristol road by Aldridges Auction House and walk, less than 5 minutes, through the path under the railway. Clearly shown on Google maps. study

McDonalds and PC World are on the A36 within half-mile of the ground (on the right as you leave Bath). They share a fairly large car park which is pretty much empty after 6pm - I've used it before with no problems, but if in doubt you could always buy one of their burgers!

HI Guys
Yes I realise the baker closes at 5:30pm . I do intend to be there around 4:30pm so should give me plenty of time to get a roll or two.yum.
I will get the train. anyone got any idea how long it takes to walk from oldfield park. The last train back is at 10:36 and i really dont want to walk all the way home to Gloucester from there. I noted that if I got the train all the way and just bought one ticket it was near £15. yet if I buy one to Keynsham it is £9. and only £3.70 from Keynsham to Oldfield park. thats Nuts. there is something badly wrong with our fares structure here.
On the sad note of last evening tragedy. I will assume we will all stand for a minutes silence. Something will be really wrong with the game if they don't have one. This puts everything into perspective. My most sincere condolences go out to all the families involved.

Hi Glostergull, it takes me about 15 minutes to walk to Oldfield Park. That's as a reasonably fit (but not massively, I like a beer) 29 year old. So work from that what you think time you think it would take you. Have done it quicker before, when extra time has been involved and it has been necessary!

Just out of interest, will you be annoyed that, should City get through tonight, Diallo would be suspended for both legs of the semi final, whereas, should Dover go through, Payne will be free to play at North Ferriby? That is just as much an unequal punishment.

It just seems odd to me that they're not banned instantly. So Diallo's ban kicks in with his first game Farnborough? I thought it could have been Gosport. If we get through we have that huge Somerset Premier Cup Quarter Final in between both semi-final legs, and knowing how precious that competition is wouldn't Diallo be banned for that game?...

On a vaguely related note, according to the FA website, Diallo is suspended for three games starting on February 21st and ending on March 3rd.  However, as far as I can tell, City have 4 games in that period, on February 21st, 24th, 28th and March 3rd.  Does this mean that Somerset Premier Cup does not count towards a suspension?  This is more relevant as Nick McCootie is currently on nine yellow cards for the season, and would, therefore be suspended if he were booked tonight, starting on February 24th.  If the Somerset Premier Cup does count for a suspension, he would then serve the suspension in that game, and wouldn't neccessarily need to miss any league (or trophy) games.

For as long as I can remember, suspensions have started from two weeks after the sending off or final yellow card of an accumulation.  However, in recent years, UEFA (I think, or it may have been FIFA) have dictated that in a country's professional leagues, suspensions should instead start straight away.  This did not come from the FA, who were happy with the two week delay.  This definition of professional leagues is the same definition used for the transfer window (also imposed by UEFA), and that definition includes the Conference and above, but does not include Conference North and South and below (although, bizzarely it does include Conference North and South play offs).

So, Diallo's suspension will start on February 21st, whether that be against Ebbsfleet or North Ferriby.

To the best of my knowledge yes. Although can someone enlighten me on this? I won't be drinking in the club (never do) but will be in The Charmbury Arms, as a) it's by the station, and b) it's ace.
