  1. Don't know about you, but tonight is the night...

    Sorry but there was no reason for us to be so limited in our ambition. We had a good team playing great football. Cardif are still second and there is no way they have very showed the potential that we did until the collapse in Jan.
  2. I know, I know..I,m being, negative . Great congrats to LJ for turning us into a great footballing team pre new year who pressed and played and won. But we had this huge opportunity and we seem to have just thrown it away. I know it's not easy and every other team is looking to invest and improve and it's a tough league but still.... We signed 3 players. One for thefuture in centre mid who appeared and then disappeared; a confidence lacking French striker with no experience in England - who was always going to need time to get going and rebuild confidence; and a young lad who a can dribble but can't/won't pass and can flatter to deceive but with little end product - and put him in to a team that is supposedly all about possession and quick pass and move. I don't claim to be an expert but if you are a possession based team then I'm not sure how it works with a player that loses you th ball eventually more often than he doesn't - which has made us fragile to transition. Against both Manchester clubs we would have been destroyed if we had given the ball away so easily and allowed regular transition. And perhaps signed though an agreement that means we have to play him or pay money. Just seems to me that our Jan business was a disaster and we had such a big opportunity to make a generational shift in the status of our football team and we just completely blew it . I've been supporting City for over 45 years and I just am so tired of the disappointment. When we were 1 0 up at home to Wolves who would have predicted such a disastrous January and February? The answer is sadly too many of us coz it's just what we do. It's just so f*****g exhausting supporting this club. If we don't make the playoffs offs given our position and potential in late December then it would be pretty much a case of negligence by those running the club ...
  3. Eliasson Signs!

    He actually said it was his hunch and he had NOT received a what's app message...
  4. Tomlin to Cardiff - CONFIRMED

    All those photos on Twitter of working hard in gym were just "come get me" messages to Warnock..........shame
  5. Just a couple of examples recently where the evening post has quoted LJ saying things that make no sense whatsoever. E.g on Hegeler: we will rarely go to a back 3 next season but if we do its a possibility protecting the back four with two energetic players ahead of him. i want to reduce the size of the squad and I will be looking to let 2-3 go and bring in 3-4 players (or something like that). its either appalling journalism or LJ spouting complete nonsense. Or more likely both.....
  6. Radio Bristol

    And suddenly it becomes clear why despite all the money he has invested we have made zero progress. SL is a cock. The great stand that bears his name will lie empty during our league one matches next season as an ongoing testament to his bad decisions and arrogant stubbornness. Never thought I would write this, but there it is...

    This is about the 5th time he has said he will pick a team he can trust. He said he would pick a team he can really trust for tonight and look what happened. I think the issue is more finding a head coach that the players actually trust and gave some faith in.
  8. How far around the globe are we spread?

    Sudan , Congo and now Kenya/ Somalia
  9. In All Honesty

    Come on, we did not have a settled side or settled formation week after week because the head coach kept trying to fix one problem and created two others........we have the players and the characters we just need to use them properly in a way they understand, believe in and become comfortable playing
  10. Gary O'Neil

    He hustled and tackled well and kept running - but gave the ball away a lot unnecessarily and gave away free kicks in dangerous positions.
  11. No Hegeler again in the starting 11......
  12. Keeping his job.

    Talk about a cop out. Need a change but don't sack the decision maker ...find a scapegoat. unity, energy, drive, focus..............shorthand for complete shambles
  13. **** of Johnson

    Thre is no justification for you to still be here. You don't know your best team. You have no idea of your best formation. You keep spending other people's money on players and then don't use them. No player has improved since you started coaching them. You are overseeing a constantly increasing spiral of deterioration in performance. Literally no supporter but the odd deluded but highly loyal soul wants you here. You rely totally on the patronage and generosity and trust of an increasingly stubborn, out of touch and seemingly deluded owner for your position. You are literally tearing this club apart and destroying the last 4-5 years work of rebuilding this team and the spirit and direction behind it. The long term damage this is causing in terms of the loss of confidence and belief and trust of a loyal and patient fan base in the club that they love is difficult to calculate. You are personally destroying the reputation, and legacy of the very person that has shown ridiculous levels of loyalty to you. You need to walk out of this place now and you know it! Never claim you love this club again. Just, for the love of God, GO
  14. Lasting Damage

    Yep it's beyond comprehension that our club and its future fortunes have been hijacked by a personal relationship between a generous if stubborn owner and is incompetent spin merchant head coach. Really hard to watch and impossible to stomach. It's simply tearing the club apart.......the silent suits v the vocal fan base.
