  1. Warnock- genius or pariah?

    Never liked Warnock, can't stand his style of football, if every team played in a Warnock style, I doubt I would watch much football. I know some people will say it's all about the result but for me, while I want us to win it's about how we play as well, so the style of football and in the correct spirit is important for me. If anyone incident epitomises Warnock it's was when Sheffield United played West Brom, and the game was abandoned, it was known as the Battle of Bramall Lane. Like many have said I understand he is a nice chap away from football. However, I never want him down the gate unless he is the opposing manager when a win is all the sweeter.
  2. RIP Nate (City fan who died on Brunel Way) Link to funeral fund

    I didn’t see any tribute tonight for Nathan, I was expecting a minutes applause on 25 minutes. Did I miss it prior to the game? If nothing happened tonight I hope something is arranged for the Forest game.
  3. RIP Nate (City fan who died on Brunel Way) Link to funeral fund

    What sad news, having looked at the story in the Evening Post I think Nathan sat a few rows in front of me in the Dolman. RIP Nathan, my thoughts are with your family and friends.
  4. LJ’s post match interview - think he has it pretty much spot on...

    Totally agree @RedDave any team this season that has constantly pressed us has given us problems. Press us from the off and make Fielding think about his distribution and we look a different side. I guess one answer is being comfortable not having the ball, problem is when you have a lot of the ball and don't really cause any problems sooner or later you will come unstuck. I'm sure Johnson knows this but we do need to have an alternative plan as more sides will be aware of this and keep playing a high press game. The one thing that did disappoint me last night was the players continued to play a long ball to Djuric in the first half. It clearly wasn't working, from what Johnson said in the interview it was what they planned for so why persist, we certainly have enough quality players in the side to run at teams and try and create space behind. Hopefully it was bad night at the office and we come roaring back on Saturday. COYR
  5. Match Report: As dominant an away 0-0 as you will see

    Thanks for the report Ole, always good to hear from someone at the game. I listened on the radio and we always sounded like the better team and the most likely to score. Really look forward to Tuesday night, I assume Wright is back so hopefully we can secure 3 points. But as Johnson said on the Radio we have struggled against PNE at home recently.
  6. Sound of the City for Senior citizens, for one episode only.

    I went to the book signing tonight and thoroughly enjoyed it. Quite a few city’s players from Harry’s time and an excellent Q&A session with Adam Baker. Harry was clearly the Steve Lansdown of his era, interesting to learn Harry predicted automated turnstiles, artificial pitches and all seater stadium what before they happened.
  7. Steve Lansdown receives his CBE at Buckingham Palace (Merged)

    I was at the Harry Dolman Book signing tonight and spoke to Marina who said her MBE is being awarded next week. Well done Marina and Steve both well deserved and great they have given so much to Bristol City.
  8. Sir Geoff Hurst at AG

    Yep I went last night, really enjoyed it. A good insight into how the game has changed. He was very honest about how lucky he was to be a good player in a very good team and also his third goal in the final was it is either going in or in row z by which time the referee will have blown for the end of the match. I didn't realise he lived in Cheltenham now, I assume he likes his horse racing. Planning to go down the gate on the 15th November for the Harry Dolman book, that should be a good evening.
  9. Terry Cooper : Flashback for the fans.

    Enjoyed watching that. As many have said, Cooper did so much for City in a period when the future looked pretty bleak. Watching the Freight Rover Trophy final brought back some great memories. I caught double-decker bus from the Park House on St Johns Lane with my dad, uncle and cousin; it seemed to go about 50 mph and take an age to get there, but a great day out. Agree the club should recognise what Cooper did in that era, it seems worlds apart from the Ashton Gate I know now. But without Cooper, we would have struggled, he put a great team together and got us through a tough time. Well done and thanks, Terry Cooper.
  10. The midfield

    I totally agree Spike we are relaying on dominating possession and quick passing through midfield. The problem is when we are not able to do this we dont seem to have another way to play . I really think we need another way of playing otherwise teams will stop us playing in midfield, making us pretty ineffective. Alternatively we get someone in midfield who's able to create something when we are under pressure. Clearly Johnson wants to dominate midfield I'm just not convinced we have the players to do that. I wish he would consider going wide more to create space even if players are just making runs wide to create space in the middle.
  11. I'll take 4th bottom now

    I know it's early days but I've seen nothing season bar a good performance against a poor Barnsley side to make me think we won't be fighting relegation again. I arrived today hoping that there would be a decent reaction from sneaking a point on Tuesday night but it was really poor, I appreciate Millwall had a agenda and they stuck to it. At half time I was hoping we might change it but we just stuck with the same formula how many free kicks did we float into the box only to be outmuscled. The lack of width really frustrates me, we so want to go through the middle, their is no overlapping out wide and we then keep trying to make 3 yard passes in the middle hoping we might get a chance on goal. I hope it changes and I actually have an enjoyable season down the gate, at the moment more of the same is odds on.
  12. Flashback for the fans video : Paul Cheesley

    One of my favourite City players (hence the name), my Dad always goes on about Cheesley and how instrumental he was during City's promotion year. If I remember correctly I think he got injured in a collision with Shilton. I always feel for players from that era as the medical treatment just didn't exist like it does now. Like others have said City's history could have been quite different if he hadn't got injured. I always enjoy watching a few Cheesley goals from the archives, 100% commitment and he seemed to hang in the air waiting for the ball.

    Ayteo, Gow, Walsh, Taylor and of course an extra one Cheesley down at Cheddar Gorge;-)
  14. Next Season

    Whilst I think this season has been really poor I'm prepared to give Johnson the first third of next season. Personally I don't think he is the man for the job but he deserves another chance for keeping us up in the end. As @Davefevs has said this third window now looks like we need a overhaul rather than just icing on the cake. As many have said replacing Tammy looks mighty challenging as no one looks like scoring half the goals he has got. Another thing that concerns me is our ability to attract older players and Johnsons ability to keep them on side. Whilst it's great to see a young team I think we need a few older heads with experience, Gary O'Neil seemed to be that player but it appears he fell out with Johnson. For me Wade Elliot was a big part in our sucess under Coterill, players with that experience make a massive difference even if they don't play every week. Anyway it will be nice to have a few weeks off now, looking forward to next season but I really don't want another relegation battle mid table with a cup run would be great.
  15. Boxing

    That was brilliant.
