Bristol sports teams are generally pretty rubbish. In soccer, City are set to finish bottom of the Championship, while Rovers are languishing in League Two*. The rugby club was relegated from the Premiership some years ago and doesn’t look like finding its way back. And as the city has sided with Gloucestershire rather than Somerset it has a rubbish cricket team too.
Thankfully there is one good team in the city. Take a bow, Bristol Academy (aka The Vixens), who yesterday sealed a place in the Women’s FA Cup Final. They’ll play Arsenal, who are a very good side and beat Bristol in the final two years ago. Revenge is required, I think. And a parade through the city if we win, Mayor Ferguson, if you please.
Yo, Tansy! Your team sucks! 🙂
* Note to foreign readers: the England & Wales soccer leagues suffered major grade inflation some years back. Instead of the eminently sensible Divisions One through Four we now have a Premiership, a Championship, and Leagues One and Two. I can see this lasting, and expect League Two to be renamed League A or something similar soon. First Division, perhaps.
