Not about the game.

The trip down and back by train, coach, car any delays? did anyone use Parson Street rail station

Stewarding turnstiles catering  match day programme ease of purchase etc

Were there any posters saying thank you for travelling all the way from Blackburn.

Was the local info supplied of any use.

Thank you in advance.

The city itself excellent for drinking, a few pubs home fans only which they should probably forget for the likes of us who clearly are there just for a beer and a laugh. 

The place just up from the coopers with Bristol Brewery barrels in the window, forget the name sorry but some fantastic beers (strong too!) 

The setup in the ground is probably one of the best I've been to with the bars and food places etc outside with the benches particularly on a day like this

Set off from Manchester Piccadilly at 0830 arrived at temple meads at about 1150. Nice walk down to the ground pointed in the right direction by a very friendly Bristol CIty fan.

Quick pit stop in the Avon packet en route, a sort of olde worlde pub, or maybe "a dive" to some people ?. The type of which no longer exist in Blackburn and surrounding areas unfortunately. Very friendly welcome from staff and customers alike.

Arrived at the ground with 20 mins to spare, great set up outside the away end. Then the game, first half was a very good game, second half Bristol upped the tempo and we looked unable to cope, fair result in the end.

Left the game when the fourth goal went in, and after a brisk walk back to temple meads made the earlier 4pm train back to Manchester, got into Piccadilly at 1900.

All in all, as has so often been the case down the years, a great day out, spoiled by the outcome of the football somewhat.
