  1. We've had a really bad run but we are still in the top 6. If we have come through it and now start performing again there is no reason why we shouldn't be top 6 after 46 games. If we finish 7th people will say we bottled it but that will be the seasons outcome. Yes someone will find the game where we gave it away but we have scored some late goals as well as conceding them. Lets debate this in May, not February. There are lots of points still to play for.
  2. Fulham on Wednesday

    I hope whoever we select that we don't play JB at full back. He is a great asset to the team but not in that position. He drifts inside when play is on the other flank and leaves his winger with acres of space to receive and control the ball. From then on he is on the backfoot and as our last 2 games, Sunderland and Leeds, has shown, he cannot cut out the cross or winger cutting in. Surely we have fullbacks somewhere in the club to enable Joe to play wide midfield. He is so much better going forward. Fulham will have watched us closely recently and will know our weaknesses. We need to stop teams raiding us down the flanks. Pack will be missed massively over the next 2 games so whoever plays midfield will need to up their game. I agree with Lew-T, Bryan and Kent wide with Smith and Brownhill in the middle. Will be a tough game though.
  3. Interesting talk at Senior Reds today

    They also said COD back in a couple of weeks.
  4. O'Dowda NOT out for the season

    There is a Senior Reds Lunch this Thursday. Perhaps Robbored can ask at the meeting.
  5. Joe Bryan v Bolton

    We all love Joe when he goes on an attacking run, taking on defenders and making a shot or cross. What I don't like is the times he gets to the halfway line with space in front of him, then stops, turns round, and plays the ball back to Flint/Bailey/ Maggs/Baker, whoever. Its a frustrating trait because he has such attacking skill. Last night against Bolton it was like there was a brick wall on halfway that he could not/ would not pass. I know he was in an attacking position when he missed the tackle that led to the goal, but he then jogged back in the hope that someone else would atone for his error. On his day he is Premiership class but last night something affected his game. His early booking was a rash challenge that early in the game, maybe that cost him his confidence, but he was poor from that point. If he gets upset by criticism on this forum then perhaps he should not follow it.
  6. Well done Dolly , let Flinty out now

    Is it Rudolph? God help you.
  7. Time to put your feet up Bobby

    You don't half talk some sense Spud. Ever thought of politics?
  8. Appeal Baker’s red?

    Made me wince when I watched it live. Can,t believe it was only a yellow. How many officials are there now at games. 4 minimum and he got away with a leg breaker. No intent at all in going for the ball. Bet Warnock didn't see it. Am I right in thinking as he got a yellow it can't be reviewed?
  9. Songs...

    Possibly might get more people joining in if we sang more about City and less about Rovers. We are all at the Gate because we love City not because we dislike Rovers, so lets encourage that feeling with the choice of song/chant. Some of us older ones don't actually hate Rovers, they are insignificant, but we certainly don't want to hear about them while watching City. I join in all the encouraging songs but when its about the Gas I just sigh, and I am not alone among them around me.
  10. Appeal Baker’s red?

    In my opinion the only reason it was a red and not a yellow was their players reaction. Rolling around in agony, long session with the trainer, back on and running in on goal within 2 minutes. Yes it was a foul and a def yellow but talk about exaggeration from their player. Disgraceful. Maybe the appeals committee wont see it my way though.
  11. **** it - let’s lighten the mood Bob

    Yep I have one too. Thought it was worthless and definitely undrinkable. Can i ask what you paid for it BigAlToby&Liam?
  12. Song for Lois

    It could be as simple as "Diony Diony" to the Red Army chant. At least its easy to remember.
  13. How much did we earn?

    If sports people now realise there is a sports scene in Bristol (where?), then its priceless, as are the memories. Next time we draw Gillingham in the cup, just remember where it might lead to.
  14. Sergio Aguero

    Great post. If lovers of football cannot appreciate opposition like that then i don't know what they want. The chance to see performances like that live at AG in a competitive match don't come round too often. If we fail to go up we may never see these players play live again, so yes I applauded to show my appreciation of superb football from superb players.
  15. Good luck tonight...

    But what do you really wish for? You're a closet red. Its time for you to come out.
