  1. Luke Ayling

    Do you know that for fact or just hearsay? If it's fact then please explain. Regarding LJ signings are they actually SL signings?
  2. Luke Ayling

    Always a debatable decision letting him go and Cheltenham was probably a perfect excuse for LJ letting him go. I wouldn't have minded quite so much if we strengthened on Ayling's position after his departure. Reflecting back to his arrival and signings made by Cotterill it got me thinking that how clear it was how Cotterill wanted to set his team up and the players he needed to achieve those aims. Thinking about the best half-dozen signings between Cotterill, Pemberton et al. and LJ I would say none of those were signed by Johnson. Anyway I don't want to deviate too much from the original point about Ayling except that it's symptomatic of the current running of the club. Granted that Diedhiou, and Pisano still need time to be judged.
  3. They're just waiting for it...

    Personally it's not about liking Lee Johnson or not it's about whether he's up for the job. I saw enough last season to suggest to me that he's not up to the job. As for leaving people with red faces that's a little OTT. We survived by 3 points. Hardly much to crow about considering most of the team are his signings. I would agree with you that the standard social media meltdown and those waiting in the wings at the first sign of a loss to say, "told you so" is sad. He'll have to do a hell of a lot better than surviving by three points to convince me he's up for the job. At present people went off half-cocked after a win against Barnsley and into the extremes after being played off the pitch at Brentford. On the positives we came away with a thoroughly undeserved point. Maybe that's significant.
  4. If there's no speculation on OTIB we'd lose 99.9% of posts. Seems a shame that the relationship Flint has with the fans is potentially being soured by threads like this which are nothing more than conjecture. If he moves on then all the best to him. Amazes me that people regard football as a unique profession where players shouldn't move on to increase their earning potential and success.
  5. Eliasson Signs!

    That's all well and good but how many players do we genuinely have that could compete in the top half of the league. It's not numbers we are short of it's quality.
  6. OTIB changes?

    Transfer section is full of utter shite. Is that a bug or a feature? There is definitely something wrong with the fonts. Looks awful in safari. Really blocky.
  7. Eliasson Signs!

    Good guess but not me I'm afraid. There's enough conjecture on this transfer list without me adding to it.
  8. Keith Welch - Keep fighting (Merged)

    That was possibly the best performance I ever recall a city keeper making. Seem to recall Soren Andersson scored. Best of wishes for KW.
  9. Eliasson Signs!

    Sorry for possibly being dumb but Is this official? His wiki page says current team Bristol City https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niclas_Eliasson
  10. Who is this?

    Excellent work Sherlock. That's definitely her.
  11. Realistically, what would LJ have to do?

    In the top 10 at the end of the coming season and I'll believe in Johnson. Nothing personal against the guy at all. Personally I think we'll end up fighting to stay up so. The squad just isn't deep enough and there's a lack of genuine quality.
  12. Striker injuries - Bobby Reid

    It's worth a try. Personally I'm not sure he's championship quality. He is inconsistent and leaves me constantly underwhelmed. Probably a make or break season for Bobby.
  13. Why do we have fans like this?

    Hand on heart I'd be delighted if he did better at Swansea as it means he's succeeding at his trade. Each to his own but personally the reply to Tammy's tweet is small-minded petty ignorance. I'm staggered why anybody wouldn't wish him best of luck wherever he plies his trade.
  14. Eros Pisano - "Spotted" - Now Signed!

    You're one of the tolerant ones mate. I, like the rest of the Dolman will be judging him three minutes into his debut.
  15. Going to football on your tod...

    You're never alone with the BCFC family. I used to go alone for quite a few years in the 90's and noughties. You have your pre-AG ritual, coffee and a pasty but once in the ground (about 45 minutes before kickoff) you'd always get to know familiar faces around you and chat about players, signings, how long it would be until the manager would be sacked and the opposition. Hard to be alone on a match day.
