  1. Johnson says the reason Eliasson doesn’t start regularly is because he doesn’t fit the system. I’m sorry but it’s time to **** your system and find a new one where he fits it. The lack of creativity without him is painful.

  2. Ever the optimist, I’m so pleased he’s back. Not a coincidence we’ve had two clean sheets since he’s been back. Always running, always showing for the ball, always popping up when we’re in danger. Not as good as pre-injury yet but that just means an 8 instead of a 9. Top, top player.

  6. We need a proven goalscorer Have done for a while. Won't get promoted til we get one. Defence is good. Midfield is good Nobody up front. Simples. Go get Dwight Gayle or similar in January and we might go up. Sit with what we have and we get bubkiss.

  8. Palmer and Eliasson are our two best players. And neither start. Oooh I love grinding out ‘industrious’ 0-0 draws.

  9. I’ve posted this before, but I’m happy to re-iterate - I used to work with a guy who was from Liverpool, he was a die hard Tranmere Rovers fan. He moved down to Bristol to work for the Bristol Post (not Evening Post, so the ‘Evil Post’ jokes are still lame) - then he left them to join my company.... and the conversation obviously quickly turned to football, as it does. He told me, with no axe to grind, that every sports editorial meeting he was in at The Bristol Post made it clear that focusing on Bristol Rovers and ‘bigging them up’ was paramount and he said a reporter was even once sent

  10. I honestly can’t think of the last time I’ve come away from a game thinking we’ve played well. Its all boring and predictable football. We must be an opposition managers dream as we are so easy to play against. Theres no fluency to our game just the same boring side to side football week after week

  11. Another? When was the last one? We need some perspective, we are 7th, same points as 4th (4 GD worse), lost once in 16, twice all season, with a guts full of injuries. We are only just about getting our best players back too, Kalas missing today, which for a lot of clubs would be a huge loss. We are in the mix. Would love us to win 4/5 on the trot and cement top 6 with a bit of breathing space, but it ain’t easy. Along with the top 2, we are the only other team unbeaten in our last 5. Most teams are inconsistent.

  12. What a rubbish thread. The club’s attempts to sign a striker in the summer are well documented. Does the OP really think that the club don’t know we need another striker? Of course they do. What the hell has rocket science got to do with anything? Sorry, but the arrogance of fans thinking they are the only ones who really understand what needs to be done never fails to astonish me. The window will open in January and we will try to sign a striker, end of story.

  15. We are cautious because teams at this level can rip you apart if you go balls out . We have experienced this and now manage games way better . We are grinding out results and getting points where before we would have come away with nothing. It is a fine balance between risk taking and caution, the table shows that LJ is getting it right more often than not. We are still in with a good chance of promotion and hopefully the club unearth a natural striker in January.

  16. Yet in the two games he’s started we’ve taken 4 points that should have been 6. When are people going to wake up to the fact that an effective team is better than outstanding individual contribution!

  17. Why are we so cautious at home? I understand this is a tough league and this approach works away from home but the last two seasons at home is painful in our approach. Palmer or Eliasson need to be playing at least at home.

  18. Nice to see the reception given to Albert when he came on as a second half substitute. This was reciprocated by Albert at the end of the game, when he applauded the home fans and gave someone in the South stand his top.

  19. We literally only have one attacking plan in our locker - give it to Eliasson and welly it into the box. If opposition teams can nullify that they can be sure that City won’t score against them. Painful.

  20. So, big game ahead....6th v 5th....but in the Championship every game is a big game. With City players returning from injuries, LJ is gonna have some tough decisions on who to start, who sits on the bench, and who doesn’t get kitted up at all. Our Opponents: Forest sit in 5th peace, one above us, with a game in hand following a postponement versus Reading a few games back. They are managed by Sabri Lamouchi, the Frenchman, formerly of Stade Rennais and Ivory Coast. As a player he had a distinguished career at the likes of Monaco, Parma, Inter and Marseille, as well as a dozen Fren

  22. 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.

  24. I thought Diedhiou had one of his best games for us today. I'm not his biggest fan, but he seemed to have improved his timing when jumping for the ball. His movement when we are going forward still needs some work though.

  25. Firstly how do you do that thing were you can stop seeing quotations of blocked posters, I believe that’s a new feature? Forest played well. We didn't have a great deal in the first half to trouble them. Bloke got sent off, it happens, we adjusted, but couldn’t find a winner. Elliason was erratic today, several really good crosses one or two poor ones, but Rodri had a very decent chance and missed. Our problem remains the same, we miss Afobi. Fam is to static and we hardly found Weimann, however take nothing away from NF who are in form, they did their job...thus stop crying abo

  30. Bentley - 7 - Another solid performance, couple of decent (if expected) saves. Pedro - 6 - Defended OK and did much better getting forward, but his crosses at times were poor, need Hunt back in the side for me. Baker - 6 - Largely steady, with some sloppy passes. Wright - 6 - Largely steady, with a few trademark silly fouls esp. when he went up into their box. Williams - 8 - Pick of the 3 CBs, quality defending. Rowe - 5 - Didn't have much to do defensively and was poor going forward. Nagy - 7 - Saw a lot of the ball and overall neat and tidy with it, faded a bit

  31. I don’t think there needs to be perspective. We are a top 10 wage budget. We are a top 10 attendance side. We are a top 10 away side. Yet we continuously struggle to look like a competent championship side at home. LJ has spent near 60m on incoming players which numerically outweigh the outgoing players and yet we look worse off in attack then we did that first full season with Tammy. I have been overly positive the last few seasons but despite results(we have grinded out some good ones) we continue to look inept going forward. Even when we score they are often a grind and through a

  32. Eh? Has modern football really got this bad?! You didn’t want to try and create a bit of atmosphere for fear of upsetting people who are attending a football match?! Good grief ... us oldies get criticised for harking back to the good old days, but posts like this make me miss them so, so much ...

  33. Considering our injuries to our big players our position is fantastic . It’s a great result . Having said that , despite having a season ticket , I could not be bothered to go today . I had time , nothing else on . But I find our football turgid and painful to watch . I just do not enjoy watching us . I want to watch either the 3 months of Oct to Dec 2 years ago or our promotion side from L1 . Outside of that we have been quite forgettable . I guess results over performance does not work for me. I repeat , the league position considering injuries is a notable result . I j

  34. He made a few errors again today, but I totally agree he is very influential on this team. And I agree with the above, we need Massengo back in. We look less classy without him. O'Dowda loses out I'm afraid. Nagy, Massengo, Brownhill- the midfield we need to see.

  36. Odowda is the sort of player you put a minute YouTube video together he's look amazing. The reality is he's 95% rubbish. Cash in (if anyone is interested) and reinvest in a better player

  40. As always, I've felt fans are usually always left behind at Bristol city football club, those who have followed for 25 years and more will understand im sure. Customer services are even worse today than they was back in the 80's and 90's how can that be possible these days. over £10 million proft and they can't afford some more staff on the phone? I post this because i am truly curious if its just me being grumpy or in fact if other fans have been in same boat as me. over one hour waiting time about 18 months ago no reply to simple email about 9 months ago this week a good

  41. True, but he made a real difference when we could have struggled, and under normal circumstances he would deserve a run, or at least make the bench. That bench is going to be hard to get onto now. If Fam comes in for MW, who then drops out of the squad, that leaves Keeper, Palmer, HNM, Moore and Semenyo who probably HAVE to make the bench. That leaves only Rodri and Eliasson to step down if KS comes in. One would leave us without a back up striker and the other we would lose a real impact from the bench. The only other alternative would be COD dropping out HNM coming into midfield. It all d

  42. She’s from Westbury-on-Trym, and attended local schools. One of many famous celebrity reds from the ‘village’ on the NORTH side of the river. Was friends with a couple of others way back and, indeed, regularly attended City games with them (though was sworn to secrecy). Stood on the old timber Grange End back in the late 60’s/early 70’s with one of them and was one of the few who didn’t run off to the far corner of the Bob Bank when we were attacked. A definite ‘Badge of Naivety’ for that!

  44. My advice would be to allow her to do as she’d like. If she wants to stand & watch the band, great, let her. If she wants to spend time in the club shop, let her. If she wants to stand up clapping & shouting / singing during the game, let her. Let her make the rules. Kids love a bit of freedom, my daughter was surprised by the swearing but because she knew it was mainly in a fun way, it didn’t upset her & she asked me if it was ok if she said some of the ‘naughty words’? She grew up living in pubs so it wasn’t anything she hadn’t ever heard before so I just told her it was ok
