  1. Sky sports 3

    Just to confirm, the likes of Hegeler, Diedhieu, O Dowda, Pisano, O Neil, Djuric were already injured long before Christmas, although I agree it meant the same smaller group had to play more often than they would have, they would have some additional tiredness and perhaps being a bit jaded but the only injury that I can remember since Christmas that has been reported is to Matty Taylor, and Frankie's groin injury (?) which kept him out for a few games. (Happy to be corrected on that)
  2. Don't sack Lee Johnson

    Why in hell would SL sack LJ??? Some posters may think that but thankfully they are not the ones to make the decision.....baffling post.
  3. Ashton confirms that we are not chasing promotion

    The way some people are going on you would think we have blown the playoffs already, when I last looked, despite a poor run, we are in 6th, 3 pts and a better goal difference (albeit 1 goal) than Preston in 7th. as has been said many times by many people. the Championship is unpredictable, just as we expected to have beaten Sunderland and probably Bolton, Fulham and Derby fans would also have expected wins rather than draws on Saturday. As an earlier poster said, it would be just like us to do well in the next 3 games and start a good run.
  4. Joe Bryan v Bolton

    JB was probably thinking of the 'pelters' he would get from OTIB if he was sent off and then we went on to lose the game, (thinking of Frankie against Wolves) !!! For what it's worth, I think Korey should have taken a booking by 'halting' Ameobi's run long before he got to shooting range, once past JB nobody put a tackle in, Korey backpeddled so far and almost invited him to shoot.
  5. A touch of reality on our signings

    Agree with the above, also a sensible Manager/Head Coach would work out which players he has inherited he rates and wants to keep and then add to them with his own picks. For example we will be playing Man City where Guardiola has had hundreds of millions to spend to improve his team since he joined in 16/17 season. Yet regulars like De Bruyne, Sterling and Silva as well as Aguero, Kompany, Delph, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Mangala and Toure were all signed by the previous Managers.

    @Mkelly You asked in response to my question in the Q & A where I sit, block E30
  9. LJ - 3 Transfer Windows

    Totally agree with Spudski on this, too many managers are in it for the 'quick fix' as they know they will be sacked if things go a bit Pete Tong, so they are unable to plan ahead, refreshing that we are appearing to be looking ahead. Last time I can remember having a young team like this with potential was early 70's and Alan Dicks. Team v Brentford: Bristol City: Fielding, Pisano, Wright, Baker, Bryan, Brownhill, K.Smith, Pack, Paterson, Reid, Diédhiou. Subs: Lucic, Magnússon, Hegeler, O’Neil, Eliasson, O’Dowda, Hinds. Mention of only 5 LJ signings in the first 11, (Pisano, Wright, Baker, Brownhill, Paterson and Diedhiou..=6), no mention of the 7 on the subs bench!! Plus Đurić and Taylor injured and Reid who LJ has supported. Also Fielding and Pack signed by SOD, so just Korey left from Cotterells team.
  10. 2nd Goal. Pep eat your heart out!

    Great disguised pass forward through the midfield by Marlon Pack in the build up and good finish by Pato. Really enjoyed that goal, be nice to see it again on SKY highlights.
  11. Paterson or Tomlin?

    LJ said in an interview after the Wolves game, he had wanted to put Pato back in before then but he had been injured.
  12. 4 wins in 6

    Going back to the question of 'to sack or not to sack' which gets the bigger bounce. Rotherham, Wigan, Blackburn, Wolves, QPR, Birmingham, Nottingham Forest, so that is 7 of the bottom 9 have sacked managers this season, some more than once,. Yet they are all still in either a similar or worse position than they were before so any bounce with a new manager has either not happened or has been short lived.
  13. Wes Burns, Derrick Williams and Ayling..

    I live in West Sussex and have a couple of mates who are season ticket holders at Brighton who are more than happy with Baldock, so it seems strange for someone to describe him as an 'average Championship player' when he just happens to be playing pretty regularly as a striker for a team second in league and heading for likely promotion.
  14. In the first season after promotion to the top division in 1976/77, Alan Dicks as manager saved us from relegation with a 5 match unbeaten run ending in the famous draw away at Coventry and also included beating Leeds and Liverpool. This after a run of 9 games without a win (including 6 on the trot) from September to November, as well as a run of 3 defeats and a draw on the trot and another run of 3 consecutive defeats at other periods of the season. As we all know he kept us in the top division for a few seasons afterwards before it ended with relegation, him getting the sack and ultimately 1982 and all that....... So not as bad a run as we are on now however he did turn it around, we avoided relegation and we ended up with the unforgettable night at Coventry.
  15. Peter Cormack's book

    I seem to recall Mann wore the no 9 but played midfield and Cheesley no 10 playing as a striker through the promotion season and if you look at the Youtube of the Arsenal game at Highbury in 1976, the first one after the promotion season you will see the same. The bad run Cormack refers to was after a good start we had a run of 7 defeats in 8 with 1 draw including 6 defeats on the trot, AD signed Norman Hunter and then shortly afterwards Cormack to add experience to a relatively young team, and as Cormack mentioned Chrissie Garland later. No transfer windows in those days. Similar but not as bad as our run this season, except we had to wait until Jan 1st to sign the experience we needed.
