  1. This isn’t aimed at the club, it’s Manager, SL or anybody officially connected to our club for that matter, it’s aimed at many of our so called ‘fans’. I too am disappointed at where we are as a club BUT we all know how we have arrived at this point. Significant numbers this season renewed ST’s knowing full well that we have a small squad lacking general quality. We were always destined to struggle this season and anything above the relegation zone was acceptable come the end - we are where we expected to be, surely? What really annoys me though is the awful, highly personal vitriol spread by many. Football fans now seem to demand instant success and don’t seem to appreciate players and Managers are doing their best plus that they are people after all! They too feel shit after losses and it hurts them badly too. Why do people bother posting negative rubbish on a regular basis, all it seeks to do is help people spiral into even more of a negative world. Life is hard enough without continually slagging people and situations off. People underestimate how important confidence is in any worker and that includes footballers, imagine being told by many people on a regular basis you are shit at what you do, and they then wonder why you aren’t performing. Are some not aware some of our players are actually kids? One window into a three year development journey, all aimed at a much needed rebuild exercise and fans are singing about ex players and that NP is getting sacked in the morning, wtf..? We go again on Saturday when OUR team needs you, and remember if you keep screaming at people that they are shit, they will quickly believe you, I think with the title ‘supporters’ there’s a clue in the title .

  3. Not trying to start an argument but who would you seriously replace him with ?. I still think he’s the best manager we’ve had in decades and the damage had been done way before he come in .

  4. NP’s interview was, as usual,realistic. He looked very fed up, as well he might. I like the way he faces us to the reality. The next task is for him to raise the players’ game. I wish him well and certainly don’t envy him. We can’t expect him to make silk purses out of sows’ ears overnight. I just hope he doesn’t get so fed up that he walks.

  5. I agree with much of what the OP is saying here. Of course people are entitled to their opinions but my god some of the vitriol and blind fury I heard this afternoon was ridiculous. People booing players, singing about how they want Lee Johnson back, chanting you’re getting sacked in the morning, hurling abuse at certain players every time they went near the ball…. It was pretty pathetic at times today. Am I happy with how things are going? Of course not. We’ve had a really poor week. But boil it down and we’ve lost 2 games we would have expected to lose and had a massive kick in the nuts in a game we should have won on Tuesday night. We’ll struggle this season, but that’s hardly a shock. We’re about where we would have expected to be at the start of the season. Getting on the players’ backs like people are starting to do at the moment is only going to make things worse.

  6. I don’t get the analogy. You’ve got to respect any child of working class parents who got into Cambridge in the 1970s, especially given the barriers she would have faced on account of being a black woman. But I am not sure she was ever that highly regarded by the Labour Party. She has had a couple of junior minister roles and a front bench role under one leader but i think, even in the party, she’s had some people agree with her and some people not. She is a bit of an object of obsession for definitely not racist people outside the party who for some reason cannot seem to shake a constant fixation with a black female MP which they assure everyone is definitely not based on race or gender. But I don’t really see how that relates to O’Driscoll or Nigel Pearson. Probably one for the politics board though.

  8. A third of Nige’s first season in and already some are slagging him off…………. I really wish that some posters would take the time to look at what’s actually happening at AG. New CEO, new manager and backroom staff. Times they are a changing……….. Nige is the best manager since Danny Wilson. Give him time and he’ll do a cracking job.

  10. Excellent post . Some people seem to think there’s someone out there who could sprinkle some fairy dust on this rabble and turn us into world beaters, all without spending any cash. The class of 2021/22 are a bottom-six outfit. Sack NP and we start over again. More cash wasted and we’re a less attractive proposition. The new man wastes time assessing the squad, the backroom staff, the medical team all while we struggle to be competitive. We’d be odds-on to go down. Stick by NP and we might stay up, offload more of the deadwood in the summer, sign more of the Tanners or Atkinsons and become more competitive next season. They need our support more than ever IMO because one thing we all agree on is relegation is not an option.

  12. Exactly this. As covered in threads elsewhere, we currently have a squad that needs improvement, players under contract we cannot move on and very little room to spend due to FFP. That situation is not likely to change soon. Whoever the manager is for the next couple of seasons is going to have to steady the ship, keep us up and gradually rebuild the team as and when money gets freed up. i honestly believe that, as long as he doesn’t relegate us, Pearson has as much chance of anyone of getting us to a point where the next manager inherits something the foundations for a successful side. Like O’Driscoll, Pearson has inherited an impossible and thankless task. I don’t think he is getting everything right but I do think that - whilst the time may come for a Cottrell style appointment of a manager who can bring the good times back, there is a lot of work to do before we get to that point and we need to stick with a manager to get us through that period as changing manager will just push us back to the beginning of the rebuild again. In the summer, a decision was made to stick with Pearson to do that and I think the club have to see it through.

  16. Totally ashamed of some of the idiots yesterday! Saw so called fans physically attacking stewards and police because they could not access the bar during the medical emergency, in my opinion they were not only drunk but very likely using drugs - please liaise with the WBA officials to use their video evidence and prevent these clowns masquerading as BCFC fans in the future! Ticketing is also a farce, it is presumed that away tickets are regarded as a free for all - if you want to stand at the back, fine! Buy a ticket for a seat there!

  17. A third straight defeat in one week saw the inevitable extension of City's already woeful home form into away fixtures - and with it a toxic atmosphere as those same home fans who made the relatively short trip up the M5 having been starved of good football, were subjected to even worse football and so tore into so far impenetrable Nigel Pearson and his players in a way not previously seen. Within hours of sacking coach Paul Simpson and banishing Keith Downing - before a first return with City to his old club - there was a toxic atmosphere that seemed to affect the players as much as it was reflected among traveling supporters, some of who variously called for Pearson to be sacked as well as targeting players as not fit to wear the shirt - while singing to celebrate former players. West Brom's three goals owed much to just getting the ball down the channel to exploit poor full backs, scoring with relatively ease having got in behind over and over - in fact the Baggies could have scored six or more, Pearson hauling off teenager George Tanner for a loose back pass which nearly provided another goal, though it was his replacement Danny Simpson who did the same for a third. City went into the game introducing fit again Han Noah Massengo for Alex Scott - but his energy was wasted in a game which quickly ran away from the visitors. In just 6 minutes a ball over the top into the right channel put Darrell Furlong into absolute acres of space behind wing back Jay DaSilva and a drilled low ball into the middle was slammed home by Jordan Hugill in behind City's back line. Amazingly the visitors could have equalised immediately as a disguised touch from Andi Weimann put Nahki Wells clear from the far right but having fired into the far corner and spun away to celebrate Baggies protests for an obvious offside led the linesman to raise his flag a long time after the finish - a right decision but executed in timing that would make VAR seem a reasonable intervention. Almost immediately a carbon copy of the goal as Conor Townsend got in behind this time on the left, centering the ball to where Hugill hooked over at close range. The hosts continued to dominate and inside quarter of an hour a recycled corner was lobbed back into the box where Tomas Kalas stretching header was backwards into the path of Hugill who slashed over with Bentley to beat. A game which saw medical emergencies in the stands before both halves would see an ordeal even on the pitch too, as injury prone Nathan Baker appeared to fall to his knees with a serious neck injury, over ten minutes passing before he was stretchered away as Cam Pring entered in his place. The Baggies were all over us and when a shot rebounded to Robert Snodgrass he curled onto the bar. On the half hour Tanner's loose back pass again gave the hosts a clear run at goal as Hugill raced in before curling a low shot just beyond the far post. Pearson's reaction to this mistake - hauling off the youngster for Simpson drew derision in the away end who sung "you don't know what you're doing" at the early change, though in truth the visitors were shifting into a conventional 4-4-2. On 37 Weimann's diagonal run got the City forward in behind the home defence on the right but his cross into the middle was too close to the keeper. It was a brief respite as West Brom again piled forward and from a 41st minute right wing corner Kyle Bartley was allowed to rise unchallenged in front of Bentley in the centre of goal to nod low into the bottom corner for a deserved second. Before the break - which included over ten minutes added on - Simpson found himself miles off yet another Baggies attack and was indebted to Kalas for turning it behind, though the pair argued, the hosts winning a series of corners, and deep into injury time glided easily behind DaSilva again in yards of space to square for Matt Phillips in the box only to miscue with a third inevitable. It was no different after an extended break as one way traffic saw West Brom continue to swarm all over their visitors though a brief counter created City's first shot on goal as Weimann intercepted and raced upfield and threaded the ball into the left channel where Wells return ball was straight to the keeper. Next Simpson stole the ball for Weimann who slid it across but DaSilva's shot was blocked. It felt like City might be starting to fight back but they routinely surrendered second balls from set pieces around the Baggies box and retreated at pace, so it was no surprise that after a City corner was cleared, the visitors rapidly retreated and Simpson slipped a silly back pass from the halfway line that simply put Karlan Grant so clear on goal he had the half to himself, smashing it past Bentley. By now away fans - particularly those which see most of their football at home - tore into players and sung names of those departed. Before the hour City twice got in the way of themselves around the box, first James then Kalas wasting shooting opportunities, each occasion West Brom breaking, the second time Pring lucky to avoid a red card trying to stop a 2 on 1 that should have produced a fourth. City's best move came after the hour mark as our best player - Massengo - jinked past players in midfield and put Wells out on the left, whose well placed cross into the near post found the otherwise anonymous Chris Martin forcing a point blank save off a close range header. From the corner at a second attempt City had players in space from the right but Martin's shot went for a throw in. Calum O'Dowda replaced DaSilva but it was all West Brom moving the ball with ease and running at City, before 70 Jayson Molumby on the run smashed a rising 30 yard shot just over the bar and then the Baggies tore their woeful opponents open again to get in behind, Hugill clear in the box with just the keeper to beat forcing a save from an angle, the hosts unable to turn home the rebound. City had a brief spell of football (by brief I mean strung more than 2 passes together) and Weimann broke on the right and fed to Wells who steered a shot straight at the keeper. With ten remaining Martin brought the ball down in the box and lifted it across the last man to where O'Dowda managed to misconnect a diving header with just the keeper to beat. The jeers just grew louder. The remaining exchanges were irrelevant as West Brom lowered the gears though would still pepper the City goal from corners - and we threw Bakinson on for bundle of energy Massengo (cue more jeers), the away side at least creating the final chance, Weimann heading over a Wells early ball. It did little to soften a toxic capacity away end, some now singing the name of Lee Johnson and others. Nigel Pearson has had a lot of patience and arguably a) we'd always expected nothing today and b) those that turned so rapidly on both players and manager don't regularly see City away, but it is inescapable that sudden coaching changes over the last 24 hours reflect the chaos that then turned up on the pitch - indeed we've been poor for weeks (including our last two wins) and are now in freefall.

  18. I never saw Lee, bloody wonderful, Johnson do anything other than disappear down the tunnel when we lost a league match! When we won he would be leading the players. Pearson has a terribly difficult job to sort out the mess we are in. He doesn't need to a visit to the away end for a foul mouthed slagging by those foul mouthed, flares in corridors morons. @MelksRed

  20. You can take I more nuanced view than a black and white: "Pearson is great" or "Pearson must go". I think we need to keep faith and see where he takes us, how he can develop the club over a few seasons. That doesn't mean I think the sun shines out of his behind. He's made numerous mistakes. I don't feel we should feel shy at calling those out. By any reasonable estimation he inherited a shitshow. sorting it out was never going to be quick or pretty, and I think he can probably do it as well or better than most managers out there.

  25. I’m not sure i fully understand the hype for Sam Bell. Genuine question, is he good enough to be playing for a championship side, or is it more so hopeful thinking because of his dad? Albeit in limited minutes, nothing has ever stood out about him to me apart from being fast, which as Semenyo has proven you need alot more than that at this level. I dont think he has scored many goals in the youth side, let alone first team. If we are going youth (which i dont believe is the current answer) i would much sooner have Conway, Britton (if not injured) & Pearson ahead of Bell.

  26. I don’t know. Here we are again. im completely behind Nigel Pearson as I think he is not the problem, but the nearest thing we had to a solution since Steve Cotterill fell out with SL, which after months of pouting ended withSC being fired and Lee effing Johnson being installed to piss everyone’s money. However 18 games without a home win quite rightly gets people’s blood up. Particularly as we keep throwing away winning positions. Its not disloyalty, its just an effing fact! Bollox about patience is just that utter bollox. As a group of supporters many many have lived and died being patient for this club. Perhaps a little bit of impatience is what we need. Turning in school boy performances and then reading horse shit on here about, premier league club/s in waiting and effing rebuilds is galling. We have have three games of utter gutlessness (I couldn’t bring myself to watch today, so I will go by anecdotal evidence) utter utter garbage. More sackings at the club this week make it pretty clear we are going to be shite for a while longer. But I no longer have the band width for gutless capitulation and that needs to stop by next Saturday at 2-59pm!

  27. Was one of the worst performances I've seen of City in a long time sadly. It was glaringly obvious within 5 mins or so, with the amount of back passes to Bentley that they lacked the quality and confidence against a very good West Brom team. I can take teams playing better than us, being better than us, but I can't take lack of effort. Simpson when he came on looked useless. Dasilva for the first goal I didn't think tracked back anywhere near as quickly as he should've done. And they could've been 5 up at half time. Talking of half time, the fan who collapsed, hope he recovers, couldn't quite believe what I was hearing when the west brom 'fans' to the left started chanting "he's gonna die in a minute". Truly shocking, unless I misheard it somehow? 2nd half was equally as bad as the first, but they utilised the wings much much better than we did. Their number 5 centre back, Bartley, was an absolute beast. Didn't expect anything from the game, however I do expect effort. Which I felt we lacked in almost every position. Martin up top barely did a thing. We couldn't wait to hoof it or pass back. Calling for Nige to go, still baffles me, for many reasons highlighted over this last week. He's a proven manager, who needs time. He also needs some funds to improve what is a rather shite team. Whether he'll get that, remains to be seen, but feel it's incredibly unfair to judge him when he's dealing with so much crap really. I genuinely can't see how any other manager would get a tune out of this squad. Disappointing to hear the fans getting toxic, it should be aimed at the players way more than the manager, given the money they earn and the woeful performance they've given. Edit - on a positive, had one of the best curries I've ever had in a lush pub called The Royal Oak, which was a pub/curry house. Spoke to some really friendly WBA fans in there too, which is always nice not having to worry about wearing your teams colours etc.

  29. I was pretty underwhelmed to be honest. Saying similar things after Bournemouth and Forest. Everything he said we know. What I don’t get is he talked about passengers after last match. Made 1 change to the XI taking out the Man of the Match and goalscorer alex scott. Sure was Massengo but could someone else not been dropped? Weimann looking very much like a passenger since QPR away. Then starts Tanner and Massengo. Has Scott and Bell on the bench against West Brom who we expect to be a tough match. Then proceeds to say he didn’t want to expose young players too much. Basically made Tanner a scapegoat today when everyone was shit. Then brought on Danny Simpson who can’t run who the proceeded to make the same mistake Tanner did. Pearson is just flat out getting in wrong lately. Matty James can’t play in a 2 in the championship. In general we don’t really have good enough CMs to do this with any combination. Maybe Massengo and Williams but not sure we’ll ever see that. Then playing Weimann behind the strikers. He struggles with the ball at his feet but was asked to be the link between midfield and attack. He runs a lot. Ok how much has that helped the last 3 games? Baker and Dasilva don’t look right next to each other in the 5. Dasilva also never sprints, rarely puts his body on the line and generally looks a shell of the player he was pre shin injuries. Makes the left side very slow. We continue to have no plan of how to start an attack outside lump it up to Martin no matter what. Their 6’5 cbs won 98% of the aerial duels. I just can’t see any plan. Making loads of changes for the sake of it now. I see someone struggling for solutions and slowly the players losing patience. His answers today were box standard say we weren’t good enough. Too many individuals didn’t show up. No shit! It was 3-0 and could have been 5 or 6. Things are starting to crumble and I’d have to see a hell of a performance next weekend to say I am wrong.

  31. Parachute payments clearly make a difference but its not the parachute payment per se that presents a problem but that the EFL allow the payments to be used for other than they were intended. The purpose of the payments was to ensure clubs relegated from the Prem could meet their current contract commitments. They were never meant to be used for new contracts or as an additional transfer slush fund. The parachute payment should be a one off payment based on the valuation of current contract commitments, not spread over several years. If the three relegated clubs receive different amounts because of their contract commitment so be it.

  35. I totally agree with both of these comments - usually I am proud to to support the club, yesterday I was quite frankly ashamed of some of our supporters. It's becoming more of an issue over the last 4 years or so - an always at sold-out, or near capacity away games. I've absolutely no issue with people vocalising their frustration at what they see on the pitch. Yes, we are a team yet again in transition and we played a good West Brom - but where was the bottle, the bite, the passion?!. The first 65 minutes were absolutely atrocious - they would all be given less than a 2 match rating - not due to individual performances - but no cohesion as a team. We are lacking leaders in every part of the pitch. Back to our own support though - for me it was on a whole new level of poor yesterday. Far too much time trading insults to opposing fans. The amount of coked-up and pissed individuals who barely watched the actual game, and instead made certain sections of support a uncomfortable place to be was depressing. Seeing children in tears and parents being made to leave a game early due to someone else's selfish behaviour, you'd think these idiots would stop. Sadly not. Instead they just filled the seat those families were in, to get 10cm closer to a fan in another part of the ground - it's so hilariously pathetic. Would love to know if others felt the same today, I genuinely feel respect amongst supporters is hitting an all-time low, and for the first time I am now questioning whether I wish to attend away games with my 6 year old son, as I don't want to consistently expose him to these sorts of things.

  37. Not listened to any interviews, first post I’ve really got to tonight, been out watching the Bristol Flyers lose 81-82 to Surrey, which rounded off my sporting Saturday “nicely”….not. My summary: For some reason or another we’ve gone away from the basics of early season., where we looked well drilled, committed, etc, without looking hugely cohesive, but it was enough to get results. I liked that we stuck with 442/4411, changing personnel to suit, e.g. Cardiff where we went Baker at LB, rather than go back 3 to accommodate him. We looked flexible within a framework. I felt encouraged. I hate looking at formations as the root cause because that makes me hypocritical as at best I think formations are 30% at most, and 70% is about the players. But….I see big issues with the way we play a back three at times. I don’t mind it per se, but I don’t like how we go about playing it. Not enough marking by the 3 CBs. Against a front two, there should be no reason why Grant and Hugill are not marked tightly at all times by Kalas and Baker (in the main) knowing that Atkinson is spare. There really shouldn’t be a case where Grant comes short and Kalas doesn’t go right up his arse. He shouldn’t be able to turn and slide Furlong in under no pressure. If they don’t mark it means someone else trying to drop back like James, and therefore there is no pressure then into midfield, where we get passed around and can’t get enough pressure on the ball. Playing three seems to result in a bit of buck-psssing, e.g. if I don’t mark my man, surely the other two will bail me out. I don’t like that. I generally don’t like Dasilva at LWB, I think he gets caught playing it a bit in no-man’s land. I know plenty on here don’t like him defensively, but I think if you get him with the play in front of him you see a better player and I think he positions himself better defensively too, even if he might have some weaknesses….at least you get the best of him on the ball….and you can build passing moves off of him. Whether Pring could play LWB better I don’t know….but I thought he played really well at LB today. Will observe more. I also think playing 2 CMs and 1 AM is asking for trouble against better teams (QPR / WBA). You might get away with it against lesser sides. We got dominated playing Massengo in-front of James and Bakinson at QPR (but got a smash and grab win) and ditto today with Weimann in-front of James and Massengo. Two different opponent styles, we couldn’t cope with either. Playing them as a flat three would’ve made more sense, at least we’d have had a back eight in two main banks. As it was we had pockets of space for West Brom to find far too often. Back to basics next week please Nige. Disappointed today tactically…even more so with application and commitment. Pring and Wells gave good accounts of themselves today. I didn’t always come off for Wells but at least he carried a threat. An interesting week ahead.

  40. I don’t think people at the club worry too much about a very small minority of over emotional posters on here tbh. In fact, as much as people hate it the vast majority of footballers see punters as idiots who know sod all about the game. Put it this way, at one of the higher non league clubs in the area players often go on Twitter on the coach journey home…… ”Smithy, you’re a carthorse and out of your depth” ”What?” ”Yeah, Dave Jones, you know the fat bloke who stands behind the goal reckons your a carthorse and at 36 stone and never played football in his life he would know” That is literally the type of conversation that would be had for banter.

  43. We know it’s been poor but to me it is the complete lack of perspective (I do know how many games since we won at home, before anyone replies). We had limited funds this summer, chose to run with a much smaller squad & have just played 2 sides who have been in the Prem recently & have the huge advantage of FFP. What was expected by these posters after we were the worst side in the division for ‘21 (statistically worse than all 3 of the relegated sides) I really have no idea.

  45. As supporters/fans/customers we are entitled to our opinions and unfortunately Bristol City (my club) always flatters to deceive. Nige still has my support but the excuses regarding the mess he inherited, can only go on for so long. We have seen very little improvement in the time he has been here and his reluctance to add at least one offensive player (loan or otherwise) during the summer was wrong. We are in a relegation battle (along with probably 10 other teams) and i'm not quite sure how we can put a run of results together at this moment in time. I will be at The Gate on Saturday for the Barnsley game but it will be in hope, more than expectation.

  46. We CAN'T get rid of players like Palmer - no one will buy them. That's part of why we CAN'T just go and sign 5 (quality) players in January. Similarly, we won't be able to find a manager with NP's experience who would want to come to BS3 and work with no budget. We've spent a few years driving the club into its current state - unfortunately it will take more than a couple of months to resolve.
