  1. Yeah normally, but unless they've not got a left foot, in this case, might well have been a plan.
  2. I think it's a little harsh to say Paterson cost us the goal. Yes he stood off him, but I bet you the pre-match tactic was to get Christie on his left foot, which is what Pato did, only for him to scuff in a pretty dodgy outside of the right boot cross, which in my opinion should not have got passed two, if not three CB's to reach the far post. I'd like to see it again and how Pato ended up LB too to be honest...
  3. I can see why Kent divides opinions. I like the way he always provides an outlet, often is the player we turn to to get the ball up the pitch, even if it's for territory and he has a good set piece. But for all the hard work, and he does work hard, nothing is coming off for him. 9 times out of 10 he ran into a wall or tried one trick too many that didn't come off. He always looks for a least one cut back before he'll get a ball in. That makes him very frustrating to watch at times right now, but he is improving, for me.
  4. Generally much better tonight. Most of them put in a hell of a shift. We frustrated Fulham without really hitting our top gear going forwards. Good result, but not ideal given all the draws we've had recently. A major problem for me is that we just don't seem to have a sub that can come on and impact a game - I can't remember the last time someone (who isn't a first choice) came off the bench to impact the game.
  5. Bryan benched......one whose not been at his best recently. Maybe a rest is a good thing.
  6. #BristolCity v Fulham: Fielding, Wright, Flint, Baker, Magnússon, Paterson, Brownhill, Smith, Kent, Diédhiou, Reid. Subs: Steele, Kelly, Bryan, Walsh, Eliasson, Engvall, Diony. #BRCvFUL
  7. Come on Villa...

    Comes with the territory. It's a position we've not been in for 10 years. Apart from our promotion season where we just smashed it. These players and this management team are learning to deal with the pressure, most for the first time. Let's hope they can learn quickly....they've proved before they can deal with the pressure, just need to re-discover it.
  8. Come on Villa...

    .....scored by Grabban. Villa 1-1
  9. Come on Villa...

    Villa penalty....
  10. Come on Villa...

    It would be just like City to go and win the next two games after the last two games. Everything is crossed.
  11. Come on Villa...

    Yep, said as much above! It's getting tighter up the top now and there will be plenty of twists and turns between now and May. Anything could happen. All the cliches..
  12. Come on Villa...

    Absolutely, still in our hands. Other side of the coin is, two wins and we are right back in the hunt for second. EDIT: @BRISTOL86
  13. Come on Villa...

    Here's a depressing thought - If all these results stay the same tonight, we lose to Fulham and all the results go against again on Saturday.... We could be 10th when we play Cardiff on Sunday...
  14. Grigg .... one that got away?

    Will Grigg has scored a ton a goals yes, but in league one. His one season in the championship he scored 5. We already have one striker who scored a ton of goals in league one, but only a few in the championship. Too much of a risk and one wonder goal against Man City in the cup doesn't change that.
  15. Cardiff fan in peace... Sort of.

    This is like pulling teeth. Well you've finally admitted you do have huge debt - make sure @sheepblue knows, as apparently i'm clutching at straws. Other truths - I'll make them nice and simple for you, i'll even do bullet points this time : Your club had over £100m of debt, of which only around £20m has been paid off over the last two years. The balance is still 'repayable in full'. We currently have a higher average attendance than you. You are at the whim of an egocentric foreign owner, who could get bored at any point. I am proud that BCFC would never sell their souls (turn blue) just for one season in the premier league, unlike you. Your parachute payments finish in June this year. You had one of the highest wages bills in the championship, which you've cut, yes, but from £41.6m to £33.5m - still the 3rd highest in the division (as of last official accounts). Despite those financial restraints you've still been spending money (up to £6m on Madine) and high waged Wildschut to name a few, so if you don't get promoted this season, I imagine, much like Norwich fans are now, the fans better get used to your best players being sold and the spending drying up.
