  1. Johnson calling upon fans

    Well pretty sure the fans gave Johnson what he wanted. Went into the game and for the first 15mins the Lansdown was silent. In fact, there were a few ass holes looking at me and smirking as if I was some rare species of fan for actually supporting the team. BUT all of a sudden they began to join in and all in all I thought the atmosphere was really good. Credit to the fans (especially S82 they were great, some class chants) they really got behind the team tonight. Was my favourite league game this season (and I've been to most!)
  2. Mags

    I think Bryan does get in the team, but I've been saying it time and time again he is a left midfielder, not a left back. He has a fantastic strike on him. Much better than Kent- Bryan actually has an end product.
  3. Mags

    Bloody fantastic tonight! Pretty sure that's the best I've seen him this season. Great tackles as well as great long throws. He is going to be a fantastic player for us in the future, was so frustrated when he was substituted (injury?) Anyay great game and should put to bed all the criticism about him, I really really like him.
  4. Reid

    Tbh I don't think that Reid in midfield strengthens our defense at all, or tightens our play. Perhaps Liam Walsh would be a better option to bring on from the bench to increase our control (and now GON.) Also, I think Bobby up front is a key trigger to our press which makes us far better defensively, and we miss this when he is in midfield.
  5. I know a lot of people like Ryan Kent

    Personally I think Kent will be great for us given a few more games. Having said thatI think when Baker comes back I would rather put Mags at LB, Joe at LM (due to his lack of form at LB atm) and then use Kent as a sub for either Bryan or Brownhill. Would be great rotating Kent Pato and Brownhill to keep our high pressing game sustainable IMO.
  6. Korey

    Looks like you were right
  7. Korey

    Fair play, today he has been absolutely superb. What a player! It was obvious after playing him at RB how essential he was to our midfield, but he has been on another level this half IMO, particularly defensively. Every Leeds attack that looks remotely threatening, Korey pops up out of nowhere and quickly steals the ball to end it. Fantastic stuff. Knowing my luck he will go an have a shocker second half and I'll be eating my words. Mind you, it's Korey, I'm not sure he ever has a shocker.
  8. the promised land

    There is no way Lansdown will sell this club in the near future. Lansdown is an investor yes, and as an investor when he purcased this football club he did it will full awareness that football clubs (Even many Premier League ones) don't make money. Make no mistake Bristol Sport is no money spinner for Steve Lansdown, it's a hobby of sorts. And luckily for us, he has treated this "hobby" with huge respect for the fans and city, unlike many owners other clubs have (e.g. the Venky family.) I'm sure Steve has a full intention to keep the club within his family. If not, he will not sell to some random owner for money, he will sell with the club's future in mind. But having said that, I'm a massive fan of Steve Lansdown and hope he remains here for as long as possible!!!

    I think this post wins the award for most ridiculous post on OTIB in the last few weeks. How on earth can you write a comment asking to replace Lee Johnson when he has achieved such great progress with this side, and completely restuctured an inefficient football club into a modern, innovative club with huge media attention. We are sustainable, with a quality youth set up and I for one am massively pleased with the manner in which Lee and Steve are approaching achieving success in this league. As for unproven players, a few years ago Bobby, Flint and Bryan were all "Not good enough," look at them now. This is the way forward.
  10. Diedhiou

    Great performance for most of the game today and absolutely love his attitude. But not a fan of the left handed strike, and also was it just me that thought he seemed to celebrate in the Sunderland fans' faces after his second goal? I hope im wrong and was at a poor angle to see, but if he did I think he should not do it again.. not good sportsmanship.
  11. Frank Fielding - Not Forgotten...

    I find it so utterly frustrating how poor his kicking is with such fantastic reflexes. He would be a prem keeper if he had kicking ability IMO. But, what on earth can we do about it? He must practice kicking, and he knows it's a problem, yet it doesn't improve. Will it ever? Although, I think his kicking has perhaps been given an overly hard time today as the conditions were piss poor for long balls, and he will need a while to ease himself back in to his full kicking ability (which isn't much!!!) after his injury.
  12. Oh how we miss Baker

    Exactly this. Agree they didn't look hungry in the second half, also agree this particular defeat wasn't down to Baker's absence. What I do think this game showed wasn't how integral Baker is, but how integral Bobby Reid is. Without him on the pitch I actually think our defence really suffered. The lack of a focus for beginning our high press was missing, and as a result I think they had far too much space in midfield. Just shows how valuable Bobby is with his endless running, not just as a goalscorer.
  13. Craig Bellamy favourite for the Oxford manager`s job

    Was thinking that myself. Always thought he seems quite switched on. Also, agree with the OP, Oxford a great little club to start off with.
  14. Cardiff Home End

    How on earth 20 different individuals came to this decision is beyond me. How many of the SAG are actually football fans and appreciate the sport? Surely not many. Many of the decisions the SAG make are ridiculous... throw in the lack of transparency and it all seems very strange.

    As much as it irritates many that some people on this forum, and many pundits, call City "Bristol," I'm sure it irritates the blue few far more. People completely ignoring the existence of their club must be infuriating, so it can't be that bad can It?
