  1. If you have watched City for any amount of time you will be used to massive excitement being the prelude to complete capitulation. After a stunning victory on the road at second place Sheffield United, this always looked like a second exertion too many in 4 days. As bad as Middlesbrough’s form has been, talking to people in the North East tonight, they were expecting City to get bombarded. Yet we got the polar opposite: a second consecutive imperious away performance putting us right back in the promotion shake up. The game was full of mistakes, but ultimately it swung end

  2. I think the vast majority of the credit for this season's showing (so far!) has to go to the head coach, not the owner. He lost his best three players and was not given the same resources to replace them. That point is indisputable. But the job he's done (so far!) has been just magnificent - and beyond realistic expectation.

  3. Sure others must of seen Jack Hunt searching for the towel that had been used for long throws in the 1st half, much to Pulis' frustration, only for the ref to order a towel sent down the touch line for him. Hunt then gets the towel, dries the ball off and takes a short throw. Love it.

  4. We are getting damn good at gamesmanship. Always used to be our weak point by far but now we've shown that nasty, annoying side that drives teams and opposing fans up the wall. Long may it continue

  5. My father was born in 1903 in Tonypandy in the Rhondda Valley, Glamorgan. His father, my grandfather, was born in Claverham, North Somerset about 1875 and taken as a young boy, by his father to South Wales. So my grandfather and father had relatives living in Coronation Road who they visited occasionally, coming to Hotwells by paddle steamer. On such occasions, if City were at home, all the males would walk the short distance to Ashton Gate. Thus my father told me about Billy Wedlock. He was short for a centre half but read the game extremely well, very quick over a few yards, (

  7. How many of us (myself included) were calling for LJ to be sacked a couple of years ago when we had that horrendous run of defeats? Fast forward 2 years and look where we are now ! The CV reads Carabao cup semi finalists, wins against multiple premier League teams including the historic night against Man Utd, and one of the few teams to genuinely give Man City a fright. Our best run in the FA cup for decades followed this season, and we now sit 5th in the championship table with 8 games left to play. Hats off to SL for giving LJ the time to learn from mistakes and build a team from

  12. Just need to remind myself and anyone else who is interested that we are Bristol City so a home game against Wigan, following two brilliant away wins, is not going to be a straightforward affair. I really am not being pessimistic just realistic.

The fact someone who has now been managing continuously for six years, three of them in the Championship "lacks experience". 2. That Lee Johnson has simply kept his job by being a "yes man" 3. That Lee Johnson has no discernible managerial ability and that his reign has been wholly useless. 4. The fact Lee Johnson is on the short side for an adult male. Obviously he has his strengths and weaknesses but he's surely done enough now to deser

  16. I wonder what odds you would have got on Webster outscoring Flint this season? I was given short shrift a couple of times at the start of the season, when I said that selling Aden was good business and that we had seen the best of his career. I continue to stand by that statement.

  23. It seems he loves the club and is desperate to get us into the prem. However his stock keeps climbing and think SL needs to fully back him financially in the summer especially if we are still in championship. I just worry that sooner or later somebody's going to come in for him and offer a massive war chest to spend on players. That will be hard for him to turn down as he would be able to bring in players that he can't get near with us and may feel he's taken us as far as he can. I get there is FFP to adhere to but I'm sure there are some tricks SL could use to get round this if

  24. I can totally see why they are doing it the way they have announced. The “reward cash” isn’t actually tangible “cash” it’s a discount against club merchandise, so giving a “cash” donation to charity means the “cash” would have to be generated from somewhere. Doing it this way, doesn’t actually cost the club and leave them out of pocket, as they’d have budgeted on “reward cash” being redeemed. That than it just expiring and going to waste, it can be used to provide replica kit to under privileged kids in community projects that the club (BCCT) run & work with. A sensible so

  27. Ok, I liked Flint and thought we would miss his goals. But on the flip side I thought we had got far too predictable at set pieces and corners, everything was always aimed at him and he would tend to strop if it didn’t. Often we would be caught out as he then had to hurry to get back in position as teams swiftly got the ball upfield to take advantage of this. I also thought he had too much say in the dressing room at times. Until the rebuild he centred himself in the room so he was seen and heard by all, overpowering lots of players. Yes we needed strong leaders but when it was his way or

  28. Webster was not signed to replace Flint, firstly Baker was and then Kalas. I am absolutely sure LJ would love to have Flint and Webster together today, as he does not have Kalas on a permanent. I really struggle to understand how people delight in slagging off a player that made us a huge profit , contributed to the most enjoyable season in decades, saved our arse from relegation (and LJ job) when others around gave up. Aiden is a great lad, was great for our club, and snide, stupid, ignorant comments against him are embarrassing. Think of all the hundreds of players that never delivered a tin

  29. Don't think you were alone in thinking or saying that PSR, although looking back it's difficult to imagine how many felt we were almost doomed at losing Flint in particular. I've said before that Webster reminds me so much of Gary Collier from our 1st division team, and he was just about the best centre back Ive seen in a City shirt. A strong defender, but with that extra bit of class on the ball and bringing the ball out of defence. Perhaps we've been lucky in having Kalas alongside him to help him settle in quickly and form such a strong partnership, but Webster has the ability to

  30. Desperately need my charger to write up my match report, but can I just say last 10 Famara was unplayable, another evolution in his growth as a hold up player, was just imperious, Flint nearly started crying, was close to our best player today. Fam is still a pivotal player for us.

  33. There is apathy at home. You can feel it. Dare I say it's just too comfortable? It's so comfortable, it's like going to the cinema. The Club want a family atmosphere. But also 'support'. I think it's hard to create both. Said before...section 82 is a good idea in principle...but it, imo, has a negative effect on the 'support'. Fans sublimely accept that's where you need to go if you want to sing or chant...so they don't bother in other parts of the ground. I've seen individuals try to start something, even a small group, but no one will join in, so they

  35. Where is his stock rising? People on here today are getting way ahead of themselves (the same as people do after a few defeats), LJ isn't a sought after manager, nobody from a bigger club is going to come calling When was the last time a manager was taken from a lower league club into the Premier? It simply won't happen - sadly until LJ gets away from the win 10 lose 10 that he's had for many many seasons, he is still a massive gamble at any level

  36. Imo...a change of manager needs to be planned, not a reaction to results and picking someone who is available at that time. This is why we are now in the play off zone...because it has all been planned. The Club made a blueprint...many mocked at such terms as five pillars etc. However... we've only been up a few seasons...not even a really established Championship side yet. We've come a long way in a very short time to how our club was being run under SC. Not a knock at SC...but it's so different from top to bottom. For all his hate...it was SoD who came in and pointed out to ou

  37. I honestly can't see why a bigger club would choose to take a gamble on him if I'm honest. I mean maybe another Championship club may want to such as West Brom, Villa, Middlesbrough etc but I honestly couldn't see him leaving a club that stuck by him whilst he struggled and supported him with an amazing youth set up to go to a rival club that is not that big of a step up on the ladder. With regards to Premier League clubs I can't see who would sack their manager to take on LJ? Southampton, Brighton? I can't see Brighton sacking Hughton and I don't think LJ would even considering working for

  38. Lee Juanson and he’s there . I agree with your post . I thought we should change him as I couldn’t see how he could overcome the awful downward momentum but I realised that he is a fighter and he toughed it out . I have the utmost respect for the lad and his coaching team and am enjoying watching him up his game with experience.

  39. Can’t believe that Webster defending from the number 9 position in the 90th minute didn’t get a mention! on a side note, while I think everyone quite rightly saw that Fammy has a truly excellent game, did anyone see possibly the worst touch in football history - he surpassed himself - when he miscontrolled and pinged it back 30 yards into the danger area!

  40. Middlesbrough still have the best defence(record) in the division, so it’s not like predicting the world will end..! He’s done ok up there. I just don’t think it’s the “home” he had here. Gone now, move on. We’ve had Jennifer Aniston leave us for the next door neighbour, but picked up Rachel Riley on our first night out..!

  41. Me too. He’s 22, will fill out, and is getting experience in a promotion chasing team. Think his emergence as a genuine no2 to Mäenpää is really positive (I’m assuming Frankie will be off). Had LJ not wasted a sub with Korey (tongue in cheek), we could’ve conceivably had a back 8 of: Pisano, Hunt, Kalas, Wright, Webster, Baker, Kelly and Dasilva. That is really taking the piss out of Pulis!
