  1. Great performance and great point. Clean sheet against £60m of strikers with our entire main back line out injured. Some of the comments on here are embarrassing

  3. Amazing that you weren’t impressed by two of our most successful managers in our lifetimes Also the two who probably created the best buzz around the Club in my 50 yrs of supporting , with Jordan not far off And both picked us up from messes at the wrong end of League One and turned us into a Championship Club I realise you are up to your stupid trolling but it’s laughable and somewhat pathetic in all honesty

  5. it should be said that Famara deserves credit. So many players in this day and age in his situation would have lost interest and stopped playing for the team long ago. In spite of clearly wanting to move on he has remained first class in his attitude as he has done throughtout his time here and I enjoyed seeing him get the winner today. Yes he has had his head turned but I don’t believe he’s done anything to our detriment, he’s a battler on the pitch and has always been a classy guy off it too. Whenever he leaves now I am sure he will be remembered fondly.

  6. Deluded Slag heads thinking they’re Galatasaray again. Are there any professional footballers out there who would actually “shit themselves” when playing at the Mem in front of 6000 gurning, badly dressed wrong uns sitting in tents? If they want to introduce realistic crowd noise they’ll have to make sure that 95% of the chants are about us. cj Fans' Favourite 22 hours ago Quote Obviously we all know our performances and results have been poor so far this season.

  7. Last week he had to stop training because of chest pains, he has also been ill. He looked completely off the pace today when he came on, but I really struggle with the logic of posts like this. What is the OP trying to say? He is shit? That he fluked playing in The Champions League at 17? That last season, when fit, it was our imagination that he looked a good player? He is still young, he clearly isn’t in favour, but there genuinely is no point to this.

  9. It must be one of the great tricks that the right-wing media have played on the British people in modern times, that the tiny number of benefit cheats that exist are consistently blamed for the woes of the country, whilst the immoral and incompetent private sector bankers that caused the biggest financial crash in a century come out apparently smelling of roses. I'm not sure what "huge sacrifices" you are referring to, I'm sure Steve worked very hard, but I doubt he made any particularly special sacrifices that other normal, hard-working folk do for much less money. The truth is that Ste

  10. Reading – Sat 28th November 12:30 – What Can We Expect? City travel up the M4 on Saturday to Reading in one of their shorter away trips this season. Having played on Wednesday night and kick-off having been brought forward to lunchtime for Sky, then it is a bonus that they only can travel on Saturday morning. Every day they can spend preparing at Failand is a bonus with the punishing schedule ahead. Every hour the players can avoid on a coach is no bad thing either. Midweek saw both sides draw, City at home to Watford 0-0 to halt their winning run, Reading 1-1 at Millwall to end

  13. The "Not Quite @BigTone Condensed, but I Tried" Version After a traumatic fortnight over the international break, City’s threadbare squad picked up their seventh league win of the season and third in succession against Derby at the weekend. On Wednesday they entertain a Watford team in 5th place who have lost just once in eight games. The game is live on Sky, so a chance for both teams to show their promotion credentials.

  14. We have nothing to gain by playing them. We win 5-0 we’re supposed to win 1-0 2-0 it’s a morale victory to them . You can imagine it. we only lost 2-0 , we’re not that far behind them. **** um , hope Darlington stuff um.

  22. Agree 100%, his money -spend it as he wants...,.he just needs to pay his tax to the government he grew up under, made his money under, and continues to earn money from the businesses he has as equity in and the real estate projects he's working on in bs3 and Ashton Vale......none of which are in Guernsey last time I looked. Massive respect to the guy for what he's achieved and his commitment to BCFC and Bristol Bears but the country is in crisis both financial and health-wise with the lowest paid public sector workers lined up for a pay freeze and everyone else lined up for increased taxation

  23. No it isn’t refreshing. He has become increasingly frustrated he and Liverpool aren’t getting their way. Boo hoo we played a champions league game on Wednesday and now have to play early Saturday. No who else had to do that this week? Bristol City. Didn’t hear Dean Holden moan about it to sky. Jurgen Klopp is sulky because Liverpool’s luck has run out. Tbh tired of all the “big” clubs and their excuses and rants about how hard it is. You win games you go and play more. That is how it is. BT pays billions to broadcast EPL matches so if their slot is half 12 on Saturday don’t be a good team that

  25. One major highlight for me was how Semenyo was yet again too hot to handle for the opposition defenders. Left foot, right foot and overall body strength makes him a real handful. If he could improve the accuracy of his finishing he could or even should end up with 10 goals minimum this season.

  27. I always like this view, good way of looking at it. A few weeks ago, when we were still saying the same thing, “it’s too early to judge”...I said we’d know more after we see our results against the mid-table teams....we were about to play Huddersfield who were 12th and Cardiff who were 14th. We won them both. The point I’m making is that you could look at the positions of ourselves and our opposition at the time we played them. You’ll get more fluctuations early season but it’s a way of looking at it. Are we in a false position? On paper....yes. Do I think we can stay top 3? Pro

One is a team ravaged by injuries etc.playing a top six , freshly relegated Prem side with one player costing more than the other team's entire squad ! Then there are nil-nils when a team is facing a bottom of the table club, ravaged by "fire sales" and virtually an under 23 side . Just saying, like ...............

  30. As of June this year - just under 34 milllion shares. Sigh. I am sure Lansdown pays every single penny of tax he is due as a resident of Guernsey. He founded a company which is now a FTSE 100 listed business. The economic benefit of this company being based in the UK/Bristol will absolutely dwarf the contributions he no longer has to make (because he doesn’t live in the country). If you’re looking for people to target for not contributing enough to the UK, Lansdown ain’t your man... edit - not knowing your financial status, do you contribute more tax than req

  31. Bamboozles me! The bloke's got passion, heart and unbelievable work rate. And he's a bloody decent footballer with an excellent multi-dimensional game that extends way beyond his forward duties. To tick that many boxes is remarkable, so it amazes me so many people wear blinkers and don't give him the credit he warrants. We'd been crying out for a player like this for years, and while he's not irreplaceable, losing him would be a massive blow. Absolute diamond he is!

  32. Cant believe how poorly he is rated by most of the fan base. He'd walk into most teams in this league. I'd have loved to have been there today to watch him smash it home in front of the east end. Good on him hope this gives him confidence because when he's on it, he's a proper handful.

  33. I was concerned by him at times last season. He had some great games but had a mistake in him, especially with crosses into the box but also with shots at goal at times. This season he has been pretty much perfect so far hasn't he? He looks assured on crosses. He makes the right decision, catching or punching clear. He also comes off his line with balls behind our defence so quickly, his kicking is good or throws and quick. I like how he positions himself as a sweeper keeper to be available for a pass, sometimes going very wide of goal to create an angle for our defender to pass to.

  34. As DaveFevs said he had 8 minutes. Yes , 8 bloody minutes to get into a game when he hasn’t played for weeks and has had a positive COVID test so was in isolation. He was introduced as the ship was going down and no way could he bail us out. What does he do ? Normally he sweeps up , links play between defence and attack, snuffs out opposition attacks and makes a general nuisance of himself. I think he has been asked to be more disciplined in his work as in his earlier appearances he was everywhere.

  35. Well considering the lack of freshness etc, etc, I thought that was probably our best football so far under Deano. We looked threatening on the break and the midfield was so strong they could only look to attack down the wings. I felt by the end they had run out of ideas and brought Deeney on to try and get a penalty.

  40. I'm still really happy with the result yesterday but I want to talk about why I don't like the tactics in combination with the personnel choices at the moment and why I think it needs to change now but especially when we have players available to do so/ in the transfer window. I think most people are smart enough to use formations as a short hand for where players play, and know that in reality it's about areas they're usually in, and what they're doing there, rather than a rigid spot they stand in, so just to be clear, that's what I'm doing here. My premise is that Holden should change t

  42. At the start of the season had anyone suggested that we'd hold a strong Watford team and look the better team in the second half, we'd have bitten their hands off. If they then suggested we'd do it with a back three of Moore, Vyner and Rowe and a midfield of Pato, COD and Nagy I suspect we'd think they were joking. If they said the result would take us 3rd and that we'd only conceded 1 goal in the last 4 we'd find it hard to believe. If they told us we'd done it under Rookie boss DH we'd probably check it was not April 1. Every team deserves to be where they are, because

  43. How do you measure if we’re in a false position, how many supporters & pundits backed us when DH was appointed? How many bookies backed us to be where we are? So that could suggest that we are in a false position if you use them as expectancy level. When you consider the injuries & the hope that we might just get some of them back in the New Year, if we can hold on in there into January, we can then make the decision of either going with what we have or looking to bring players in from outside. And I don’t envisage us paying millions but there will be plenty of clubs struggling fi
