  1. Fact is we have played 3 of the current bottom 5. The next few weeks look much tougher.
  2. Very worrying that after a bright start, that is our second really poor performance in a row against very average sides. £5m for a striker that can manage 60 mins, all horribly disjointed.
  3. Well, that is worrying. Against a team expected to be much closer to the bottom than the top, at home, and we have been...awful. Midfield almost non existent, no real idea what we are trying to do here. Only good news is that we are level.
  4. Totally incoherent first half an hour. Only hope is we will tire them out.
  5. Burton v Birmingham

    All just a plot by Birmingham to put Villa bottom of course...
  6. What is a 'Sensible Time' to have a complete meltdown?

    Like everyone, we have some new players that take time to settle. Our first ten games give us a decent mix of teams to play. I would have thought then we can start to make some serious observations. We have been a mix of sublime and awful so far. Need to give it enough time to see where the balance truly sits.
  7. Just to be clear....

    OTIBs general consensus before season. 'Mid table this year, yep, on balance that would represent progress'. OTIBs comments after three games, in which we have played pretty well for three halves and pretty poorly for three halves: 'Results and performances, 1 win, 1 draw, 1 loss, not good enough!'. Think first ten games will give us a good indication of where we really are.
  8. Video highlights...

    http://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/football/competitions/championship/10990501/brentford-2-2-bristol-city Having asked a few questions on Saturday, would have to balance that with Frankie won us a point today. Not happy at all with their first.
  9. Would have certainly taken that before the game, and given how it is gone, I am delighted. This board reflects the difference between the 'how we played' and 'the result is everything' crowd. Not sure we have been as outplayed since we drew 1-1 against Sunderland on the box years ago. They went up (I think) we went down. Poor defending again, great match by Fielding, but yes, win against Millwall and we will look ok.
  10. Fielding maybe man of the match. Great point, but no doubt in my mind which of those two teams will finish higher. We were battered. Delighted with the point, but a long long way from looking like we can compete against the better teams.
  11. Been really poor today, well beaten.
  12. Completely mugged them that half. Brentford much better play than anything else we have played the season. Goal up somehow, need to change something around.
  13. Thought both goals were poor in truth. First, we seemed to have a number of chances to clear it. Second, should Fielding have done better? Beaten twice by low shots outside the area. Would want to see them again told fair.
  14. Well, game of two halves. Really should have got something out of that. Good news that we are creating chances, be nice to get more on target. Reid could have had a hat trick really. Poor in the second half, never really responded when they raised the bar. Ho hum, back to earth.
  15. Correlation is different to causation however. Clearly there is a relationship between the big wealthy clubs and their level of away support. Is it the former or the latter that is responsible for their results? I would think if makes some difference, how much is hard to gauge.
