    Few concerns from some he isn't quite ready. Motm for me. Elite fitness levels. Kept winning the ball, winning fouls. Deceptively very quick and strong. Just turned 18. Mental. Has to be in every game when fit no doubt. Also thought Brownhill was very good like always. Together we relied on them massively to not lose that game. I'd play them both and Nagy when all available.

    Are you having a bloody laugh? You won't believe anything until it comes from LJ, now this does come from his mouth and you think it's a lie? Bloody hell. You need to have a word with yourself pal.

    @spudski It’s the British mentality

    for me at least. He was terrific, keeping their wide man under shackles for nearly the whole game, getting forward, putting in the blocks etc a no nonsense RB

    He seems to protect himself quite a lot and gets substituted more than any defender I have ever known

    FAKE NEWS: In 88 appearances for City, he has been subbed during the first half or at half time: Once this season. 3 times last season. 4 the season before, once for Steele after Frankie got sent off, so really 3 times. TOTAL: 7 (8) Yes he's had his fair share of injuries and suspensions, but your stat is plain incorrect.

    If we had Afobe then I'd fancy us, definitely. Now not so much.

    Not here it isn’t. AW has the movement and I believe could get 15 goals.

    We were far from excellent, but this game shows how far we have come. We were not at our best but toighed it out against a good team. Rode our luck a bit and could have gone on to win it. We are solid, if not spectacular. Let’s see how it goes - still early days

    Welcome to the forum Mrs Hunt. (Seriously, he had a solid game today, but I would suggest at least 3 were better candidates for MOTM than Hunt).

    Agree. Most managers fail before getting 100 games in charge and never manage at the given level again. Lee will now be a manager for “life”....he has a great deal of experience. Young? Yes. Inexperienced? No. Nice post mate. Shows the depth we have now. The less serious injuries have happened in a lighter period of matches. We will need a couple back as we go into Sat-Tues, Sat-Tues periods. The EFL Cup defeat looks like being a blessing. Nagy will probably be back next week meaning we can perm 2 of Brownhill / Massengo / Nagy over an intense period. You could add Rowe in too, if you’re willing to accept O’Dowda might play the odd game at LWB. Up front, of course Afobe is a blow, but we have the 3 natural “strikers” of Diedhiou, Weimann and Semenyo, backed up by flexible “forward” minded players in Palmer, Szmodics, Watkins (yes, Watkins) and add O’Dowda, Eliasson in here too. It’s not as doom and gloom as some suggest. If we don’t win today, it’ll all be “season’s over without Afobe”, but it is after any game we don’t win. We are in good shape points-wise. Perhaps a bit of siege mentality is needed today.

    I’m not too familiar with LJs managerial experience prior to joining City nor am I particularly bothered but I had assumed that he hadn’t managed at Championship level before. Maybe I’m wrong about that...... Btw - what on earth has LJ being the son of GJ got to do with anything?

    Rowe best performance I've seen so far for him. 7 for me. O'Dowda very good and surprised he was subbed. Diedhiou very good first half when he came on. Very poor second half. Zero stamina. Touch worse than however bad people say it is when he is knackered. 5 would be generous. I guess some players really struggle with the heat. Fam and Palmer, considering they were both subs as well so not on pitch as long really didn't run enough. Though Palmer did a few exceptional things on the ball. We need to work out how to be more creative in the final third without Afobe. How do we get the best out of Palmer. Szmodics looked decent at times, and pressed very well. Harsh ratings. I would have swapped positions, him with O'Dowda. O'Dowda has that bit ot power that might have been all the difference up top, and Szmodics likes to play more behind the forwards than up there alongside one. The reserve game recently may have suggested he shouldn't be right up top as he was apparently very poor.

    Fantastic stuff. Let September 21st be known as OTIB’s ‘Independence Day’! Would it be possible to hide posts that contain quotes from ignored users entirely? This way both the ignored user and those replying to said ignored user with some form of abuse are hidden. Would trim the Afobe thread in half!

    Robbored The forum pantomime dame and happy troll OTIB Supporter 10,226 32,862 posts Location: Nailsea Report post #563 Posted yesterday at 16:31 So.........it looks as if the Afobe injured was a complete twitter wind up - now there’s a surprise.........not! Im really looking forward to a plethora of apologies from those who slagged me off as an ‘attention seeking troll’............ Back at you Robbored.......Start your apologies now to everyone who were correct with their wild speculation. It has to work both ways I'm afraid.......

    Hope Fam is on the bench, if we go back to the style of play, lumping balls at him then can only see a loss, we need clever movement in front of Palmer, so would prefer Weimann & Semenyo

    Top two places are there for the taking. Leeds really aren't all that. If they had the injuries to their key players like we have had then they would be in a right mess. IMHO their squad is not deep enough to sustain a season long challenge for the title. Time will tell. We are right in the mix especially with 4/5 players who would walk into any Championship team to come back into our squad.

    Glad nothing happened. Driving back down Coronation Road, it looked like WW3 was breaking out - 3 Heddlu vans racing down the wrong side of the road near Asda, only to cross Bedminster bridge and go back the way they came. Then 3 dog vans coming out of Bedminster going the same way. All for nothing, then?

    I had a very similar experience last winter with two stewards in the same location. I wanted to go to B&M to buy my daughter a cheap blanket to keep her warm for the second half (it was only around 10°C) I was told with no uncertainty that if I left I wouldn't be allowed to re-enter despite having our season tickets with us. Was pretty annoyed until one of the stewards said he had a blanket in his car and could lend it to us for the second half. He did, my daughter was happy and we even got the blanket back to him after the match. Really decent guy and a great gesture. But I was a bit annoyed at the intransigence. It's not like I just wanted to leave for some chips.

    Sorry about this, not all pc plods today were from Avon and Somerset so unfortunately can't rely on local knowledge to spot the shirt. Nice to see we were out the vans chatting to fans

    I’m sure he (or someone) has suggested before that Baker is a bit soft in this regard? As in he either has a low pain threshold or tends to come off when others might carry on

    Generous marks for Kasey here. I thought it looked like he’d been on the piss all week at times. Looked lethargic and restrained. Thought he was injured at one point he was so immobile.

    If I was Johnson I would be getting into KP and telling him to do it for Afobe. I’m sure Afobe will be around the squad especially on matchdays.

    WR - I see your an inexperienced poster judging by your post count and yet you feel qualified to slag me off....... At the risk of being rather dull and repetitive, I’ll give you the same tip that I give to all my critics - just put me on ignore - it’s even easier to do now with the new feature. Go on!........you know you want to.

    He was living in Bath last time I spoke to him. He had just finished working on the bin lorrie's due to poor health. This was around 2015 when I still lived in Frome and travelled to/from City by train. After I moved to S22 when it was opened, I remember seeing him in that block. But haven't seen him now for I guess, three years. I knew him since we stood in the same spot in the Covered End from 1980 through to about late 1980's. I then got a seat in Williams and only saw him occasionally until the train journeys referred to above.

    Apparently over one weekend Match of the Day regularly attracts 7 million viewers, it's not all about Gary Linelker obviously...........but he is the best football frontman IMHO. I can watch all the goals on Sky, but I prefer to watch someone with personality present a show that is fun to watch. Compared to some "celebrities" who earn fortunes for doing nothing, he is always worth watching. As others have pointed out, the BBC squanders plenty of money elsewhere, so at least GL is good value. Anyone who believes what they read in the Sun and Daily Star needs to take a long rest in a padded cell.

    Overpaid or market rate. He could earn far more at Sky. What you rally mean is - how dare he have a view that I don’t agree with. ... and that’s the crux of this whole story. The tabloid - BBC Hating - press don’t like it becuase he dares to have an opinion that they don’t agree with and is generally left of centre in his political view so winds up many a red faced angry twitter user. Personalty the more it boils the piss of people who can’t cope with him having his own view on life then I’m all for it

    Good point - and fair play I say to @JulieH for doing it. The less "them and us" there is the better if you ask me.
