With talk of a possible new home for Bristol City, We take a look back at 100 years of the club at Ashton Gate Bristol City's first match at Ashton Gate, on September 3, 1904, didn't get off to a very auspicious start - the expectant crowd of some 14,000 saw their team go down 3-4 to Bolton Wanderers.Nevertheless, it was a nail-biter, with the visitors scoring twice in the game's dying minutes. Described by the local press as "one of the finest grounds in the country", Ashton Gate was then capable of holding a capacity standing crowd of 30,000 fans, 8,000 of them under cover. Some ?2,500 - a small fortune 100 years ago - had been spent on the No.1 grandstand alone. Bristol South End, as the team were known then, were no strangers to the pitch - they had already played there a dozen times following an amalgamation with Bedminster Football Club. But until 1904, they had hosted all the home league and friendly matches on their old ground at St John's Lane. Even here, they could get crowds of 6,000 plus. In those early days, sporting red shirts, the team were nicknamed the "Garibaldians" (after Italy's 19th-century revolutionary leader). Once they'd gained admittance to the Football League, however, the old place proved too small to accommodate all their new fans. A record crowd of nearly 18,000, for instance, had turned out at Bedminster to see them play Sheffield United. It was then that management decided on a move - under the watchful eye of ace manager Sam Hollis - to the much more spacious Ashton Gate, previously used as a multi-sports venue. City took on many big names in those exciting pre World War I days. In 1906, for instance, they played against Manchester United (City lost 2-1). Then, in 1907, Bristol-born centre-half Billy Wedlock gave the whole team a big boost by winning an England cap. Wedlock, who died in 1965, ended up being capped 26 times. After leaving the club in 1921 (they tried to get him to stay on) he took over the Star Inn near the ground. An exciting FA Cup run in the 1908/9 season saw the club reach the final - only to then lose to Manchester United. Two years later, City suffered relegation to the Second Division. They would not make their way back to join the top clubs for more than 60 years. But in the mid-Thirties, during another successful FA Cup, they took on Preston North End in the fifth round. A capacity crowd of more than 43,000 fans packed the stadium, only to witness a 0-0 draw. Then came the war years. One ominous night in January, 1941, a Luftwaffe bombing raid virtually destroyed the No.1 stand. During the infamous Good Friday raid a few months later, further bombs finished it off. But because of restrictions and shortages throughout the Forties, a new stand didn't appear until 1953. Post war - the so-called "Dolman" and "Atyeo years" - saw City emerge as a new force with promotion to the Second Division. Atyeo, a legendary striker who netted 350 goals over some 645 matches, was one of the club's greatest players. Joining in 1951, part-time at first, he turned down offers from the likes of Liverpool, Spurs and Chelsea, teams that would have given him both fame and money. Capped six times for England, Atyeo retired in 1966 to become a teacher. He died in 1993. Under Harry Dolman's regime the club's debts of ?55,000 were cleared and its finances put on a much firmer footing. When he stepped down as chairman in 1974, Robert Hobbs, of Hobbs Quarries, took over. It was in 1966, incidentally, that Adge Cutler's Drink Up Thee Cider was taken up as the club's new theme song. The club's official anthem today - the tune the team run out to at home matches - is the Wurzels' 1976 release One for the Bristol City. A newly-recorded version recently reached number 66 in the charts. Under manager Alan Dicks, the 1975/6 season saw the "Robins" promoted to the First Division. The robin, incidentally, continued to be a feature of the club's badge from those heady days right up until 1994. Official Bristol City FC merchandise, in fact, still shows the bird, currently known as "Scrumpy" the Robin. Top players from those First Division days included Norman Hunter, Gerry Gow, Joe Royle, Clive Whitehead, Geoff Merrick, Tom Ritchie,Trevor Tainton and Jimmy Mann. City striker Kevin Mabbutt - his brother Gary and father Ray both played for Rovers - was transferred in 1981 as the financial crisis which led to the "Ashton Gate Eight" debacle loomed large. As the players' long-term contracts were torn up, City faced debts of some ?700,000. Out of it all, phoenix like, arose a new club and a new management, Bristol City (1982). The new directors had to buy Ashton Gate from the old club. The cost? Some ?565,000. Almost 10 years ago City, then under the chairmanship of Scott Davidson, unveiled plans for a new stadium on 40 acres of council-owned land at Hengrove Park - the old airport site. That ambitious

Careening through the universe, Your axis on a tilt, You're guiltless and free I hope you take a piece of me with you ... -From "Motorcycle Drive-By" by Third Eye Blind One of my favorite songs of all time. Really. About once a year I get the urge to listen to it. Usually when I'm sad or depressed about something. Kind of feeling that way now. Not about anything in particular, strangely. Just a feeling of being overwhelmed. Stretched thin. Needing to please everyone but myself. Makes me moody. The urge to listen to this song also usually coincides with long stretches of gloomy weather ... heh ... that could be it. I am solar-powered. I need the sun. Anyway. Here's my dark and moody 365 for the day. It's fitting. TOTW: Gratitude - I'm grateful for a creative outlet. I'm also grateful for having too much to do instead of not enough. There are plenty of people out there right now who would love to be busy, have a job, be in school, etc. Gotta snap myself outta this crap.
