    I don't buy the logic of "if I'm comfortable with this, everyone else should be too" and I find it perfectly understandable that, if you are a young black player, you go away from home to a new environment and walk into a room full of people mocking someone the same colour as you about their skin colour, it's going to be uncomfortable and unwelcoming. Even if the racism wasn't directly aimed at them, it still makes clear their new teammates are judging them based on their race. It sounds like a cliquey, horrific environment and I'm really glad that it does not sound like that is the atmosphere at the club anymore.

    Tomorrow nights game on Sky will be another chance for sky to celebrate West Brom's inevitable march back to the Premier league where a club of their stature naturally belongs. Prepare to be sickened at the sight of Slaven Bilic being fawned over and feted for lowering himself to manage outside the top division. Immerse yourselves in the in-depth profiles of their fading ex Premier league players. Unfashionable 'bristol' will hardly get a mention and be treated as an afterthought; a mere thorn in the foot of the mighty baggies and their triumphant march onwards. Dare to dream boys. We always believe Coyr!!

    Proved an awkward opponent for Flint and Nelson today. Worked hard, to harass defenders into hurried clearances. Provided a physical challenge so that the likes of Weimann and O’Dowda didn’t need to get involved in that stuff...allowing them to play their game. Got fouled a few times Much more to his game today than what he did on the ball. Had Brownhill laid a better ball back to him, he might’ve opened the scoring. I think his teammates and the management team may think he contributed more than you thought. Out of interest, were you there or watching it on telly (I watched it on telly).

    My nan could of scored a hat trick against them. I wonder if he is as dirty a player for his country as he is for his club ? Roll on summer transfer

    There are so many parallels between this season and the last time we achieved promotion to the top flight in 1976. It must be a good omen. 1. We had the longest serving manager in the second tier in Alan Dicks and now have that in Lee Johnson. 2. We had a goalkeeper who started his career as a defender in Ray Cashley and now have that with Daniel Bentley. 3. We had a clever young winger in Clive Whitehead and now have that in Niclas Elliason. Niclas Elliason is almost an anagram of Clive Whitehead. 4. We had a midfielder who was hear, he was there, he was every ******* where in Gerry Gow. We now have that in Han Noah Massengo. If you take the last two letters of Massengo and add the first letter but turn it upside down, it miraculously spells Gow!!!! 5. We scored a hatful of goals against a team from Yorkshire that season. 6. The President of the USA was a ********. 7. We had the name of one of the most popular TV shows of the day in our side, Sweeney. Now we have one of the most popular TV shows of this era on our books in Louis Britton, although he's now on loan at Bath (Britains Got Talent). 8. 2 years earlier we caused a big upset in a cup competition. 9. It was a leap year in 1976, 2020 will also be a leap year. 10. I can't think of any others and couldn't back then either. So all bodes well. The only thing that wasn't like this season was that we beat WBA at The Hawthorns

    Wash your mouth out, Sir. Polish George Best more like. The most naturally gifted player we've ever had. He could make the ball talk and did the most outrageous and entertaining things when given it (which wasn't enough.) Had many faults but like other players of his ilk lazy wasn't one of them. He's tarred with that brush as ( like Cole at the same time,) he wasn't afraid to let his teammates and fans know that he knew he was miles superior to the rest of them. They both were. He'd play balls, or look to play balls, only to discover his teammates were years behind in thinking and movement. And he'd let them know. Recall one evening standing with him on the terrace after he'd been dropped in favour of the likes of Shelton. We were awful and run ragged and he didn't hold back in letting all know of their lack of talent compared to him. Happened most places he went owing to his predilections but our man management of him was woeful. You confuse his legacy with much of the dross he had to play alongside.

    For all the stick we give them, for all the enjoyment they give us, I thought their tweet today about Afobe was class. Fair play to the gas.

    18 starts- 6 goals, 2 assists, none of them IIRC penalties. Pretty good tbh, when the all-round package factored in- question whether we even have been playing to his strengths of late either. Certainly wouldn't be dropping him just yet...

    On Tuesday it was pissing down so I went in the shop to buy a shirt with my favourite player, Nagy, on the back. When the guy handed it to me I said " I think you've made a mistake mate , it says NGY. " Ah said the assistant. " We only make A while the sun shines " I'll get my coat.

    He's absolutely useless and contributes f all apart from a forward run which results in him losing possession or falling to the floor. His goal & assist record is extremely poor at this level. Why he was given a new deal I have no idea. Evidently no other club in the summer wanted him hence signing an extended deal. To which we should have retracted our offer. Since joining us, he has not progressed at all. Reminds me of Martyn Woolford who also contributed diddly squat. Should be playing in League One.

    Who knows, could come back in January, and be our club-developed player. Got to get minutes if that happens though. Wouldn’t surprise me if the odd Champ team doesn’t come in during the winter window to see if they can prise him away from Lincoln for the second half of the season. Showed very high level of consistency for Lincoln, in the vote for MOTM virtually every game. And those who’ve not seen much of him can’t fail to have been impressed by how easily he slotted into the Wales midfield. Great faith by Giggs to select him last night. Would’ve been easy to play Ampadu, the bigger name of the two of them...but I think he knew that Joe’s discipline was needed with Ramsey but also allow Allen to get forward.

    Rarely mentioned on here but what a bargain he has been. A great utility player who rarely puts a foot wrong. For me an unsung hero.

    Well I suppose the law of averages states that he was going to pick the right one eventually No way Jose. Smith is still better than Massengo at this point

    You and I know its not as binary as that. I would completely agree if we were talking about the same group of players year on year, but we're not of course. His job is to make the most from the resources he is given. Simple as that. That includes the academy. I just don't think he manages to do that. Your only measure is position in the table. Fine, if that's what floats your boat. We play disjointed football much if the time, barely manage a competent performance at home and are so far from delivering the basics so often, that you'd be hard pressed to believe the players have met before. I agree at times they play some silky attractive football away, but that's a poor return after years in the job. His football is predictable, frustrating and lacking intensity or cohesion. It certainly lacks ideas and entertainment value. Each to their own.

    Tin hat time but I think he’s just one of a number of players who are perfectly good enough to ‘give it a go’ but ultimately not at the level needed if we genuinely want to be any more than we are now - hopeful outsiders. Nothing against him personally. Good servant to the club and by no means a bad player. But can’t help but feel his best days here are behind him. Nagy better than him technically, Brownhill offensively and Massengo will be streets ahead as an all rounder, but he does bring some welcome grit back to the midfield.

    Thanks for your reply. My apologies if my question came across as unsympathetic initially. I was just keen to understand the context of how this happened. Seems your son tried to do the right thing and these idiots didn’t like that so started on you. Sorry to hear that, and I hope you are all ok. You misunderstood sir. I was asking for some context as to how this occurred. Groups of football fans do not randomly attack old guys in cars so I am glad the gentleman has now given the context. Clearly they are a bunch of ***** but the attack on the gent in the car was brought on by an earlier incident, albeit one where the guy and his son are still totally innocent. But the context is now clear.

    Haven't watched as at AG for a while but went today, felt Forest were just of a similar standard to us and we cancelled eachother out. Should've finished them off at 10 men and I didn't really like our starting formation.. but reading this forum you'd think we'd just lost 0-3 or something. Ref was a bit niggly too which didn't help the flow of the game.

    Southgate 1000000% in the right to do that, england have to work as a team, and bad blood has to be stopped there and then, sterling couldn’t let it go and started it off again therefore he’s dropped and rightly so,

    Bumped into Diony in the park once and he was having a kick around with a hedgehog. I was shocked he could be so cruel to an animal and I was just about to step in when the hedgehog went 1-0 up.

    3649 total gate, 521 away, just over 3000 Gasheads watching in the men, probably a couple of thousand, crying into their beer in the pubs after watching our win. *edit* According to that dick on Radio Bristol, there are a couple of good things to take from today; 1 There is a good view of Dundry apparently 2. The gas are still in the F A cup, (after playing a 10 man non-league side)

    Many replies on here criticising the ref for a poor decision. How can the ref have given anything but a penalty. It’s cheating. By the WBA player. We should all call it out and condemn it rather than blame the ref. The consensus view should be “the player cheated and won his team the game. This is wrong, he’s conned the officials and cheated, and the FA should apply a retrospective 3 game ban”.

    Yes, good luck to them and I hope the players and fans of Bristol women's football enjoy it but it is seriously irritating when it is misleadingly conflated with something in which I am actually interested. "Bristol City" has been used to exclusively refer to the men's first team for over a hundred years. If it isn't the men's first team then it receives a subsequent qualifier as in Bristol City Reserves, Bristol City U23s etc. and because I'm not interested in those either, unless there are special circumstances such as a player returnng from injury, then I know not to read them.

    More than that we can’t overcome it because no one knows if they will be playing or where they will be playing. West Brom are 4231 when it isn’t working they go to a bigger striker or change like for like. Physically and athletically we just don’t recruit athletic players or technically gifted players. We have bought a side of average athletes of average height with average technical ability. Their one outstanding trait is work rate. This keeps us in lots of games but why we fall short against good teams. Said it a week or so a go, this isn’t a playoff side. Lee Johnson’s tactics have gone backwards for at least the last 18 months and probably 24. This club is going nowhere fast. 8-9 windows and 60m gets you 1 shot on target in 2 games and a team devoid of any ideas how to break anyone down

    I am interested to know who people think we are supporting? Some of the comments on this thread and across the forum lately, give the impression that we are one of the teams that is trying to get back to the heady heights we are used to. We aren’t, we are building a club and a team to try to achieve something that is rare in our history. There are bound to be periods where people lose confidence in that slow build, but the lack of patience to me is worrying because of the past tendencies to throw the baby out with the bath water.

    Said it before about Warnock (and Ollie in the same vein), off the pitch and away from football, two nicer blokes you couldn't meet. Both family men (Warnock leaving his job to nurse his wife through cancer and Ollie fighting tooth and nail to help his deaf daughter) and both have done a load for charities close to them. On the pitch though, fkng wanchors. Best of luck Neil. Hope your wife is well. Can see Pulis getting this job. That'll be fun.
