  1. Weather (Merged)

    Can't believe they are going ahead with the game. Main roads may be fine but side roads are a complete mess. If it is on tomorrow I might walk but don't fancy taking the car, parking could be a nightmare. I hope the club don't make a big mistake and end up panicking and calling it off at the last minute.
  2. Weather (Merged)

    Like your glass half full attitude @italian dave but a balmy 3 will feel like -1 with the wind chill, that snow won't be going anywhere soon.
  3. Weather (Merged)

    I like your optimism @pillred but the forecasts I've seen are showing 3 degrees but with wind chill feels like -1 tomorrow at 3 pm. I think whilst the pitch may be okay surrounding areas will make it difficult to put the game on. Quite rightly the club will be concerned about fan safety and that will be an issue tomorrow particularly if we have more snow.
  4. Cardiff Game - Confirmed Beamback

    Just noticed that Sunday’s game is confirmed as a beamback. Hopefully that should please a few fans based on the lack of tickets. Doors open at 11am Not sure if it is a good thing though as we’ve not been at our best for beamback games, no better time to but that to bed. I would absolute love to do the double over Colin. #COYR
  5. Where will we finish now?

    10th or so which at the start of the season I would have been more than happy with. I know there is plenty of points to play for but I felt we had to win today to start a decent run, we’re currently 18th on current form. Not making the playoffs will be very disappointing based on the form we had shown before the start of the year but looking quite likely I’m afraid.
  6. Arsenal get on my nerves

    Totally agree, so wanted to get Arsenal we could have really given them a game. The way Arsenal play now looks so laboured, obviously a great side a while ago but the game seems to have moved on but Wegner hasn't.
  7. There is a problem

    Always been a big Joe Bryan fan but I think he is better playing in midfield rather than LB. It always feels like he plays with a little less freedom at LB which is completely understandable but stops he doing what he does best. Happy to see him in the team wherever he plays. No doubt we did miss a physical presence up front today but don’t forget Durjic played against Preston in the first half and we were very poor then, we were just one dimensional. Like many things in life football is about balance and we need to be able to mix the style of play up. I have no doubt once Fam and Durjic are fit we will start to really click and push on. This season is well beyond my expectations. Playoffs is a reality if not automatic. COYR
  8. Lee Johnson

    Besides the performance which was amazing I thought he came across very well in the post match interview. I liked the fact while he acknowledged we had lost the game we are very much in the tie and would continue to play positive football. There is no doubt what he has achieved this season is quite special to get a young team to play so positively week in and week out. I’ll be honest last season I would happily seen him leave, but you’ve got to admire Lansdown for sticking with Lee and Lee’s desire to keep going and turn it around. I thought mid table would be a good season, I’m in dreamland currently. Lets hope tonight’s experience is another postive step and we get promotion.
  9. Manchester Programme

    Hi Josh, Try contacting the shop, I know they have a supply. I managed to get 2 copies the day after the match. I think you can order it online. Cheers CWOC
  10. Fairly happy with a point.

    Totally agree. I was there today and whilst Flint going up front posed QPR a different challenge we certainly didn’t start playing hoofball. The reason were successful in the second half is because we moved the ball through midfield much more effectively, Pack was the game changer for me he game on and started a moving the around the pitch which created problems for QPR. In fact I think we were more guilty of playing long ball in the first half and that was why we were so ineffective (imo). As far as I’m concerned we looked like the only team likely to win in the second half and if that means playing Flint up front to mix it up then so be it. Lets be honest if we didn’t have so many injuries Flint would have never gone up front. Let’s hope we get a few players back soon and we can get a few extra players in the window. I think we need them if we are going to stay in the play off places. Understandably a few chaps looked pretty knackered today.
  11. If We Lose To QPR...

    Before the game I said to a mate I would rather we won on Saturday, but after last night while a loss on Saturday would be disappointing, I would accept it after last night. That was a special night, let's be honest games like that are what we dream of, I'm still a little bit in disbelief of what I saw. It was truly amazing. It really feels like something special is happening down at Ashton Gate. COYR
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
