  1. I can see why LJ likes Reid there. He's energetic , can fill in when we lose the ball , makes good runs into the box and now he is scoring . I know he has always had a goal in him, but if he can take more chances he could turn out to be valuable . I'd like to see us play 2 up top , and I hope it is just circumstances than has stopped Johnson from doing that (although I don't know why he hasn't tried FD and GE together).
  2. Are we still talking about Reid, or have we moved on to Taylor
  3. It's more to do with the raining camp, then a game tacked on for the fans , rather than a friendly game/tour. They put more emphasis on the training / fitness/ bonding , than the game time. I'd like to see tougher opposition , I know we have FC20 later in the week but maybe 2/3 games against reasonable opposition. A mate is on tour with QPR in Berlin(2 games I think) , have to say I was a little jealous, if that was us I'd be very tempted. I'm not really a big fan of friendlies , and I'm not sure you learn much Vs the sides we've played , but I guess it helps fitness and Reid's confidence must be sky high.
  4. With the injuries, doubts LJ has over some and the sheer number of goals. Reid has to be nailed on to start the first game , unless something drastic happens between now and then.
  5. OTIB changes?

    Ooooo I go away for a few hours and everything changes . FTG Just checking. Oh and BTW , just assume if I add an emoji I like what you say , but just fancied another picture
  6. Season Card Arrived!

    This ! I was expecting to use last years card, re-loaded. Not complaining mind, last one was looking a tad rough around the edges.
  7. Nailing the Colours to the Mast

    Boring history fact. When striking your colours you would take down your flag, signalling surrender, the enemy were then allowed to board the ship which would be taken as spoils of war. Nailing your colours to the mast meant you were unable to surrender and would fight until the end. During the battle of Trafalgar , a French ship was boarded when the flag was seemingly lowered. It was explained to the boarding officers that is was accidental and not a sign of surrender, the officers then apologised and left to continue the battle from their ship. Oh sorry , 16th.
  8. Neymarrrrrrrrr

    PP agree @BobBobSuperBob
  9. @mkelly

    I love that Westons Vintage 8%
  10. LJ speaks..

    Points total and position doesn't tell all the story. Season before last we stayed up by 12 points, sounds comfortable compared to last year going down to the last but one game and 3 points.
  11. Season preview from a Bristol City perspective

    I apologise for the seeming defeatist attitude , my initial excitement over FD's and Pisano's signing has waned a little and as things stand we could start the season with one fit striker, and one who has never played in this country let alone this level. Never mind, another new player, a 5-0 Vs Twenty and I'll feel a whole lot better.
  12. Bristol Rovers dustbin thread (Merged)

    Any truth in the rumour the Mickey Mouse has a Bristol R*vers watch ??
  13. warnocks finest hour

    @Davefevs that's sort of my point. A fit , or even fitter LT would be able to play for 80/90 mins , he did look about a stone overweight. From pics I've seen he's shed some of that , and we all know how good he could be. I think with a Warnock defence/midfield he may be given a little licence to play, but if he slacks then it won't last, or he won't .
  14. warnocks finest hour

    While I'd criticise Tomlin for poor fitness, which he looks to have improved, the blame for our bad form during THAT spell cannot be laid at his door alone. In fact at a time when player were going missing, and if you think back to occasions when we had throw in's, and it looked like our entire team had left the pitch there were so few options, Tomlin was ALWAYS available. He tried to get things going, he never shied away from receiving the ball when others hid. That run put paid to his involvement, we came out the other side when LJ accidentally stumbled on a more pragmatic formation (I think it was the only one left), one that LT's talent did fit. If Warnock finds a formation to suit him , Tomlin could be massive (not that way) this coming season. It remains to be seen whether we will entertain as much, I'd settle for winning and worry about more later. Good luck LT , just not in the 2 games Vs us.
