  1. Past hour
  2. Liverpool identity is strident and obvious. Bristol City can hardly be comparable to Liverpool in terms of identity. Liverpool under Klopp will be playing with the same principles next month/season under Klopp while Bristol City looking at Mr Johnsons history will not.
  3. My dads funeral is tomorrow and yes times like this effect everyone in different ways. However city players are well paid, they are professional footballers, some were close to Afobe and some not so close as Afobe , the performance yesterday was diabolical to say the least. City players are professionals and if not in a comfortable state of mind of which I can understand should say to the Gov put me on the bench.
  4. Best years of our lives - Modern Romance
  5. Let’s face it we will be in the same league as the Gas next year as they are playing very well and most probably get into the championship next season. This will be good for Bristol football but a bit embarrassing for City. Rovers are continuing to do well and we are continually slipping.
  6. There is another coach at a Bristol sport side, who coaches relentlessly , with repetition, and even gives players homework to study. But the players will tell you this "You know exactly what he wants, how he wants you to play and what you have to do in every circumstance " . Interestingly, those exact words were relayed to me by a player of a team currently running away with the Prem. Clarity and consistency. I would suggest that no player of BCFC could say the same.
  7. The same as any forum...Leeds perform more consistently than others, as do WBA... that's the difference. Keep building as we are. The same question can be asked of the majority of teams in this division. It's not long ago we were League 1 regulars and run like an amateur outfit. We've come a long way in a very short time.
  8. I think I would generally be classed as being at the "happy clapper" end of the spectrum, although I also hope that I am a realist. For all the good things that have been achieved during Lj's time, the elephant in the room is, and has been for some time, our home performances and results. For a couple of seasons now our away form and results has been that of a team chasing automatic promotion. Unfortunately at the same time our home form and results has/have been closer to that of a team fighting relegation. Following the OTIb thread for the Millwall game , early on one poster said that we looked nervous. I get the feeling that this is the overriding feeling around home games. How many fans feel confident about our chances when going to Ashton Gate? If fans are nervous/anxious then I suspect the players feel even more under pressure when playing at home. LJ struggled to be accepted here as a player and just have felt this most when playing at Ashton Gate, and I wonder whether this affects his thinking these days, causing him to be more cautious in his approach, and thereby the approach of the team, preferring to try not to lose rather than trying to go for the win. I fear that unless we can create "fortress Ashton Gate", promotion will continue to be just that step too far.
  9. How many other clubs also would think they are big clubs at Championship level? I would suggest about half the league, at least!
  10. Do me a favour. He doesn't give a toss until he can feel his ass slipping off the seat on the gravy train.
  11. City oz

    Early leavers

    I tried purchasing tickets for the dolman stand and other areas but they came up as not available mainly due to season ticket holders which is no problem. However there were a massive amount of seats empty in areas where tickets could not be purchased. My estimate of the true attendance would be somewhere between 16 and 18 K. At best. It’s a great stadium compared to others in the same league as city but for some reason it does not seem a stadium that can promote atmosphere - well That’s another topic for another day.
  12. Jamies Carragher on tv just now " The top managers do not change from their beliefs "
  13. I would add that post Webster, we signed a keeper very capable at getting the ball to players, but we lost the main outlet. So we are making a mess out of building from the back, despite our record signing being a centre back. As with Famara, our second record signing, we do not recruit in a coherent manner for the type of football we claim, but do not apply , that we play.
  14. Sat in the Lansdown stand..... first row behind the dugout... what do I win?
  15. We were a couple of thousand short of that figure imho
  16. He has spent well, hasn't he. Engvall, Adelakun, Eisa, Smodicz, plus loans like Kent, Diony, Woodrow, Rodri. And if Palmer does not begin to show better than he has, I'll include him.
  17. Tickets sold don't necessarily correlate with attendances in the ground itself- haven't for a while. Seems to be just standard in modern football- if someone has purchased a ticket, or is an st holder the official figures show them as having "attended" even if they have not! Club will have access to both sets of figures but there certainly were not 21,000 there Saturday IMO.
  18. They're about to lose their manager to a team in a league below who are 18th. They might be in a false position in their league but lets not forget they're still ickle ragbag rovers
  19. Just because it was really shit then doesn’t mean we have to put up with shit now, nobody in their right mind can think it’s good to watch at home, it’s mind numbing
  20. Must admit the last two games have been poor and these type of performances have been happening for over a year now, I don’t go to Ashton Gate expecting a win any more. Despite this I do think losing Afobe has been a massive blow for us. He was just what we needed and there was a wave of optimism about our club as we gradually improved as a team. Let’s hope we can get a decent striker in soon!
  21. Definitely not, personally mind, I used to prefer Ashton Gate in the days when we were pulling six or so thousand - feels remarkable to think, but it was a better atmosphere than these days when we're regularly pulling 20,000.
  22. So if we don’t buck our ideas up rovers will get promoted ? What a rather odd statement
  23. Certainly more so than the performances that were dished up under Russel Osman, Tony Pulis, SOD and god knows how many other genuinely tragic managers we have had. People do realize we're not going to get Guardiola or Klopp is LJ went? There is definitely something a little amiss and I'm not so blinkered as to deny that it is frustrating, but when you weigh the volume of the criticism against the reasons we have for optimism it's absolutely incredible - you'd think this club was tailspinning towards catastrophe.
  24. Don't think the club would be happy with 10,000 paying customers though.
