Yesterday, plans for the Championship campaign of 2018/19 took another step forward as Bristol City gave fans a sneak teaser of the new badge that will be going on the shirts for the coming campaign.

With a popular call amongst the fanbase for a return to the robin emblem, that has been incorporated for the coming year of football but it means the Bristol coat of arms has been relegated to the merchandise substitutes bench.

Reacting to the teaser as we now have a red breasted robin in front of the Clifton Suspension Bridge to reflect our first badge on the shirt going back to the season of 1949/50, plenty were, of course, delighted to see the club listen to their views and make the change.

Plenty also hoped it was now a permanent addition.

Problem was, there’s just as many who don’t like the change and want the decision immediately reversed – or at the very least reversed at the end of this campaign.

The disagreements certainly didn’t end there and this appears to be one topic particular where it’s irrelevant how the club pivot, a good section will remain unhappy with whatever decision follows.

Others just saw it as a good excuse for a bit of a brag.

Fans will no doubt find out if their love or rage was duly appropriate when the club make a formal announcement on the issue.
