  1. Cauley Woodrow - a Fulham fans view

    Great article @The Exiled Robin It will be very interesting to see whether Woodrow can do something for us. The same goal return as he managed at Burton would be ideal. I'm also interested to hear what supporters of teams who actually know the player have to say about them. This quote from the Fulham blogger is interesting: From that description he could probably play alongside Reid or Deidhiou - could give us some very useful options when the game needs changing.
  2. Joe and Bobby don't want success at City

    This and NTTDS' post about Radio Blackburn closing down have really confused me. Is it my age? Have I lost my sense of humour? Am I just a little bit thicker than last season?
  3. Radio Dark side Stops broadcasting

    You made me want to click the link For those who don't want to click the link but want to know what the article is, the opening paragraph: "The UK’s longest running annual RSL at Blackburn Rovers Football Club has ceased broadcasting this season." I'm not sure how I'm supposed to react. It's like finding out that someone's dog died but you don't know the owner or the dog. And you don't like dogs.
  4. Cauley Woodrow (Merged)

    Recorded at VHS quality but here are three goals:
  5. Three games into the season we have, unfortunately, proved that the problems exist in the mental strength of the players. It's not possible to completely dominate a Barnsley side for 45 minutes and then disappear for 80 minutes against Brentford with the space of 8 days. Bizarrely, Barnsley are above Brentford in the league table. The weaknesses that led to last season's unprecedented losing run are still thinly hidden beneath a layer of new signings. I'm not throwing the towel in just yet. As you said in your Birmingham report @Olé the performance was good and the result was bad - a reversal of last year's first away game. There are clearly differences compared to the start of 16/17. But, if we are to achieve anything this season then we must find an answer to this mental frailty. It might be a new player, a new coach or a psychologist. It might be a new head coach. Credit to Brentford for assembling a team that can demonstrate what is possible on a restricted budget within the Championship. They do, however, only have one point to our four. Fingers crossed tonight is the wake-up call.
  6. Plymuff Vlog

    Extremely good video. Looks to have been at least 4 people involved (from the camera angles) and they had access that supporters definitely wouldn't get! It's got a near documentary feel to it. Makes a change to actually see players' expressions rather than our one camera pan/zoom (No criticism of our club intended - I'm very happy to get the highlights and interviews that we do)
  7. City caught training at the Memstad photo

    ....and 'Corporate Caravans' for when they announce their next plan to move to a new stadium in Bath/Severnside/UWE....
  8. cotts on sky

    How many of our U23 or U21 players made it into Cotterill's squads? The promotion season showed he was only interested in working with the smallest, tightest group of players. That wasn't sustainable especially when the following season he refused to name a full bench. What message did that send to the academy? Great manager for that one glorious season but sadly not "one for the future".
  9. For those that didn't attend...

    With this season's online changes, I think the club has realised that there isn't money to be made (at present) with UK video rights - other than the Sky/Channel 5 deal. Extended Interviews and match highlights are now available without subscription. I applaud the club for this as it answers some of the "what have Bristol City ever done for me?" moaners. It might change in the future but the club seems to be taking a fairly gentle approach with fan's matchday footage.
  10. David Cotterill

    Looked as hard as nails with a wicked cross on him. And then someone pointed out that he hadn't made one tackle in 90 minutes.... Not really the all-round player we thought he was.
  11. Ivan Sproule

    Excellent interview. Fantastic that the club is making these available without subscription. And Ivan Sproule - top man.
  12. Wilbraham's departure - suspicious?

    "Undisclosed" can still be "free". If I was a player of 37 years, I would prefer the clubs to announce an undisclosed transfer fee.
  13. LJ speaks..

    Um, no, he was brilliant on loan and was able to fit into whatever formation we had at the time. Maybe LJ wanted to sign Tomlin but more than anything it felt like fan pressure to sign him. Nothing like the David James signing. I've been a fierce critic of LJ but whoever shifted Tomlin to Cardiff performed a modern day miracle. What is lost in this debate is that once a player signs a contract, they own all the trump cards. Lessons learnt? Definitely. The main one is don't listen to the fans!
  14. Tomlin to Cardiff - CONFIRMED

    Spot on.
  15. Tomlin to Cardiff - CONFIRMED

    From https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/tomlin-departs-for-cardiff-city/ One positive comment: Two digs: The comments from the club imply no sense of loss whatsoever. There have been more positive words for player departures who haven't even featured for the first team. Looking at what was written, it's almost a rewording of his AFC Bournemouth release statement: https://www.afcb.co.uk/news/archive/afc-bournemouth-midfielder-lee-tomlin-joins-bristol-city-permanently I think it's great business shipping him to Cardiff although it guarantees them six points against us next season. A relatively small price to pay for recovering our transfer fee and saving a big chunk of the wage bill. And he will fall out with Neil Warnock. Although I wouldn't criticise Tomlin for effort most of the time, his impact on winning results was negligible after that amazing loan spell. He seemed frustrated throughout last season and gave the ball away in places where counter attacks could easily punish us. Thanks for the good memories Lee, unfortunately there were too few for the talent you have.
