    Just a question then, why doesn't Taylor get the same vitriol? It's like a "face doesn't fit" thing with our supports sometimes I feel. It's like if you're funny, or have a good chant, our supporters seem to overlook things. It's actually pretty funny. I'll give you a few examples: Matty Taylor. Awful. Not good enough at this level. He's 15% of Fams ability, but because he runs around a lot and we stole him from Rovers he's like a cult ******* hero. He's shite. Flint. Wasn't actually that good (defensively). Says a comment about Swindon and becomes some sort of superhero. Albert Adomah; Had flashes of brilliance, but was an absolute liability when it came to tracking back and lost the ball in some stupid areas fairly consistently. But because these players have / had good chants etc all the other stuff is overlooked. My advice to Fam would be, ask the media team to do an interview with you so you can do a silly dance or drop in how you much you hate the Gas and then you'll be fine. The fans will then love you. There is no consistency and a lot of hypocrisy when it comes to "picking" on a player too. Look at Hunt for example. The guy in the last few games has scored an absolute screamer and a couple of assists, but he's too inconsistent according to some, but yet Palmer is a footballing god. Erm, he's probably one of the most inconsistent players on our books. He's always giving the ball away, but yet because he has a chant about "shagging people's wives" this is overlooked. Then we have the Afobe situation. A lot of our fan base said on transfer day that he was awful. A panic buy and we were scrapping the bottom of the barrel. He's scores some great goals, but that's now because he's a confidence player and that he's playing well because we love him and the Stoke fans got on his back. That's why he was bad for them. Erm, but it's ok to do it to Fam? Maybe he needs some love? Has anyone thought about that? Anyway, rant over.

    Just don’t understand why LJ, MA and our 30 strong recruitment team, ( plus the Wales manager) with all the stats and figures available for almost every player in Europe should blatantly ignore the OTIB experts who clearly know that his legs have gone.

    I certainly wasn’t convinced a 19/20 year old striker with no experience of the Champ was someone to pin our hopes and 20 goals on. We aren’t a side like Leeds who he will suit more....and you hear something like £5-6m to loan him!! We got the right striker for Bristol City.

    Southend fan here - so pleased to hear that Taylor is doing well . He was great for us and seemed a really nice guy - his celebrations when we managed to stay up in the last few minutes of last season showed how much he cared for the team he is part of. Hope that his (and your) good form continues. With five defeats for us this season how I wish he was still with us.

    Yes I am talking about people choking! Disabled people! In a wheelchair! Already having to use oxygen to get through the day ! Having to leave the stand and miss 10 minutes of a game because of how difficult they found it to breathe . They are not delicate snowflakes

    Ta I Understand that for you the Sags and the feelings towards them and the rivalry with them means little For many of us of middle age , and some younger and older they will always be a subject of real dislike and something to take the p out of at every opportunity Some of us remember 82 when they tried to Nick our ground , and their loud arrogance during parts of the 80s and 90s Many remember events before and during those periods and some after but there are many that really despise em with good reason Personally if this thread , only reminds our younger fans that they are a laughable stain on Bristol it will have done its job Plus it’s really enjoyable to take the p out of them

    As I heard yesterday, a bloke telling his young son “you can getting involved in all the songs, just don’t repeat some words to your mum tonight”. Just as I was told when I was nipper and just what I tell my young son. Football is sanitised so much these day, let’s not encourage clubs to make it more so.

    Those b@stards can just bugger off - the last time recently they thought it was clever to block the M32 my mate’s mum had an urgent and vital operation at the BRI cancelled because the surgeon was stuck in the traffic chaos those absolute tossers caused ..

    Real top quality performance. Created so much first half. And improving all the time at his defensive work. Really hope LJ can find a regular place for him in the team. Agree he was MOTM.

    I honestly can`t recall the last time I enjoyed a player`s home debut as much as I did Adam`s today - Tammy`s perhaps is the only one that comes close. He was an absolute joy to watch and looks a real leader. £2.5m was it? The steal of the season.

    Finally realised he wasn't as good as he thought he was and nobody else wanted him. Still, glad it's over.

    @Gas Go Marching In Just a few reasons why this topic is over 1000 pages. Deluded horse punching Neanderthals. Your gift gave yesterday too. 18 years of sheer pain and envy of the 82ers....Dean Windass. Tick tock, you're going bust. P.S. Hope you and your mob enjoyed the knob cheese sandwiches.

    He's the muscular, direct striker we've been crying out for for years imo. I didn't really understand the muted response to him signing, even with the Nkethia disappointment; he is quality when fit and focussed at this level.

    It’s really not..! When I heard it today, I was thinking “it’s been years since I’ve heard that at a home game” and just assumed it was a dig at them in front of the sky cameras.

    3 wins in a week, fantastic result. Not perfect, but you always felt we had a goal or two in us today. Usual ratings...no half marks. 6/10 is a player earning his corn. Bentley - 8 - my MOTM today. So assured, and made crucial saves, and commanded his box. Got his confidence back, and you can begin to see the understanding building with his defenders. Pereira (66m) - 7 - great kegs up and down and some lovely whipped crosses. Has the pace to recover and grew into the game. Replaced by Hunt. Hunt (24m) - 8 - what an impact. Second assist this season (to add to his goal), and relishing sharing the minutes with Pedro. Was a great cross that Afobe would’ve buried had Burke not turned it into his own goal. The right side was very good today. Moore - 7 - very disciplined today and learning all the time. Used his body well today and we all feared he might suffer when Kalas went off, but he’s thriving with the opportunity. Used the ball very well today. Kalas (32m) - 6 - went off injured but a couple of lovely interceptions and drives forward in the half hour he was on. Can only hope he’s come off before making it worse. Only 3 games in Sept if it is a few weeks. Replaced by Palmer. Palmer (58m) - 6 - did some nice stuff, but loses a mark for a third yellow card and losing the ball for their equaliser. He put a few lovely balls through and again worked hard in the unfamiliar left midfield role. Baker - 7 - solid, and against Eaves didn’t let him get behind him very often. Did well in a 4 too, which should be no surprise as he’s played most of his career there. Looks to have his head right. Rowe - 6 - good outlet on the left, especially from sprayed balls. Felt he could have done a bit more when he got it, but lo and behold, he’s the one who pops up in the penalty area to get brought down for the first. Unlucky with Bowen’s goal as played for the offside but Moore hadn’t stepped up. Brownhill - 6 - another mature performance, working so hard in a two man midfield. Lots of ball-wins, going unnoticed and perhaps not the chance to get forward as much. Massengo - 6 - thought Hull pressed him successfully first half, but he learned quickly to move the ball on. Second half, much better and good range of passes. Like him as the one who stays up front from corners and he did well to great breaks moving. Weimann - 8 - started in the KP no10, and involved in lots of our good work in the first half. Got better as game rolled on, and his willingness to work hard with and without the ball paid dividends for a lovely cross for our third. I think we seeing his best form since last August. Diedhiou (75m) - 6 - a mixed game. A couple of lovely bits of hold-up play early on, but looked a bit lost at times when we didn’t have the ball. Very unlucky with header. Replaced by Semenyo. Semenyo (15) - no rating, but did ok and linked up well. Afobe - 8 - thought he missed Weimann initially, but grew into the game and must love having Palmer on the pitch. He times his runs so well. Should’ve had a penalty before he eventually scored after Rowe fouled. Second goal was a cool finish off a bouncing ball. We’ve seen those missed, but you sense Afobe trusts himself. I’m sure he would’ve scored from Hunt’s cross, so could’ve easily had a hat-trick today. Probably MOTM, but just felt Bentley deserved it.

    If we can see out an away game like this there is a significant change underway. We're used to seeing City letting a 2 goal advantage slip and ending up with a draw away. Not tonight - brilliant. Created and then defended like lions. Moore, Kalas, Baker, Hunt, Rowe and everyone else in the second half immense. We're getting over losing Webster and with Palmer's and Massengo's magic we can beat a top team as were Derby tonight. Andi was amazing getting a goal on sheer will-power and skill and also cleverly leaving it for Brownhill to bamboozle the Rams. GET IN!!

    Evening all! Another week another defeat for us i will try not to bring the ref into the equation who i thought was very lenient on your players this afternoon! I thought that we played ok and we should of taken the chances we had when 1-0 up to make it 2-0 the red card was reckless from Allen high boot with studs showing your always going to give the ref a decision to make but always thought when we were 1-0 up we wouldn't see it out and i was right! your first goal was a carbon copy of the first goal we conceded at Birmingham cross to the back post and header into the net far too easy for attackers to get in behind the defence i thought elliason changed the game when he came on i said on here earlier in the week if you played with pace and power upfront and out wide you'd get joy hopefully thats the last we'll see of jones we are going one way with him in charge and thats down! Good luck for the rest of the season! I cant be confident we'll be seeing you down here next season at this moment in time

    Quite agree. We have more than enough things to laugh at Rovers about, I'm not going to use some kidding fiddling I love you as further ammo. He was clearly looking for an environment where he could 'befriend' kids. City/Rovers, makes no difference. He's a proper wrong 'un and should be locked up.

    Agreed. It can be no surprise that S82 has a few halfwits in its midst. With apologies to halfwits. I mean, it's not like some of our greatest ever players were raised Catholic is it? Or perhaps they thought it the best way of persuading O'Dowda to sign a new contract? Then again, thought requires thinking which requires braincells. At a time when our club is modernising by the minute, at a time we're embracing players from all sorts of countries, backgrounds, ethnicities etc, it's a ucking disgrace that a few ****s want to sing moronic songs based in bigotry, hate and division. Again, sincere apologies to halfwits everywhere.

    Glatzel cost more than Famara and has been totally anonymous. People like to have a go at FD but try looking at some other players out there in that price range.

    This is superb. How disgusting of City, Oxford and Matty Taylor for not taking into consideration the the feelings of butthurt, bedwetting Sagheads when when this transfer went through. The FA should’ve done something really.... Always the victims, it’s never their fault...

    That's why he's keen to join us then - as a Black Country lad - we're the closest club to the Black Country Mecca that is Weston-super-Mare.......probably has a caravan at Brean already.

    He's a very solid central midfield player. Good all rounder, who at just 23, has played almost 200 games at Championship level. That says a lot as the level is fast paced and unforgiving. He's a different style to Pack, Nagy or Massengo so difficult to compare them like for like. I would like to see him score more goals though and pop up inside the box. I too think he's a bit better as a more advanced midfielder - but he's not quite as creative as Palmer so in the current setup probably won't get to play there regularly. I think he might play a bit better if deeper alongside Nagy who will move the ball quicker than Pack. Johnson making him captain in games shows that he wants him to take more responsibility this season.

    It was just before Xmas last season, but this season it's in February , which will probably coincide with our push towards the play offs. Add in the fact that last season a lot of us stayed in Newcastle for the weekend and I told a lot of people what a good laugh we had, it's easy to see why we will double what we took last time. That's not even allowing for the fact that Sunderland fans loved us and many will be imploring us to visit again.

    "This kind of blind delusion is especially true of Newcastle United - which, as I reach for the nearest tin hat, is only a big club in the sense that it has a lot of fans and a big stadium." Wow! He totally hit the nail on the head with that comment.
