  1. Incredibly tedious to try point scoring immediately after such a good result so early in the season. Honestly, the best thing you could do is not start antagonistic threads like this and keep quiet. All the satisfaction would then be if we keep doing well and the appointment speaks for itself.

  2. Just read his interview from yesterday press conference in the Bristol Post and for a young lad who hasn’t exactly been given too much of a shot here, he seems to bloody love the club. Great to see. He’s been sent out on loan four times in four years, took a pay cut to show willing when signing a new contract, asked to be made captain for the cup game and now saying he sees his long term future here as a captain. I don’t remember him saying a bad word about us, even when LJ threw him under the bus a couple of times, then chose to send him out on loan and sign Benkovic/play Williams

  3. Andreas Weinmann Arguably good enough to be starting in that XI Arguably not good enough to be starting in that XI But, I have never seen a Bristol City player work harder in a City shirt than Weinmann does. The attacking and recovery runs he makes for 90 mins is something else. I really do hope the respect he deserves is put on his name by everyone, and that it remains on his name even during difficult spells of results. What a player, proud to have him in our shirt!

  4. About freaking time we showed a bit of streetwise edge to our game . Hamer had to be taken off because he was on a second warning . Halle- freaking- lulleah !! We have been the naive ‘ sportsmen ‘ for too long . Cheating,no but winding up opponents I am very much OK with . That is part of any professional sport to get in the opponents head. Well done Rowe , who was namechecked , and the others . Chris Martin was up to his old tricks yesterday, frustrating when he’s on the opposition side but frankly great when it’s your team he’s getting the advantage for

  5. What is the point of him? Bar his first month he has been dreadful for us....not average but consistently poor. Behind William's, Walsh, Paterson, nagy, brunt and now bakinson in the pecking order surely. Eaten alive today, bakinson looks twice the player. Time to get rid sorry, we just can't afford to play and carry him.

  6. All he does is run about and point a lot. Did he learn his trade from Nicky Hunt? Get rid. No this is not from just one game. I have thought this for the last year or so. Woss reckon?

  7. What a natural. He provided genuinely insightful commentary and a shed a light on what the coaching set up and dressing room’s like. He was fantastic. Can we have him every week?

  8. Losing Baker and especially Kalas for the first matches of the season was a massive worry and there were a lot of questions about Taylor and Zak, and whether they could prove they were Championship quality players. Two clean sheets in a row where, by and large, both Stoke and Wednesday have been restricted in the chances they've created should give them a great deal of confidence. I'm sure both will learn and improve as the season goes on but both are looking very much like they are at home at this level and can keep us solid until Kalas comes back. Fair play to the both of them.

  9. Sheffield Wednesday: [Sunday 27th September – 13:00] – What can we expect? Wednesday travel to Ashton Gate on Sunday having made a decent start to the season with a win at Cardiff and a draw at home to Watford so far. It leaves them with four points, two clean sheets, but of course they still find themselves in 24th place due to a 12-point deduction for financial irregularities. For now, it does not appear to be a millstone around their neck. They progressed in the Carabao Cup with wins at Walsall on penalties and Rochdale but conceded their first goals of the season at Fulham on Wedne

  10. Absolutely superb performance. We know what he can do on the ball, which was as classy as ever. But his aggression, winning headers or giving them a good strong nudge. Really looked superb middle of the 3. We seemed to play quite high and we seem capable of it with that back 3. Didn't miss Kalas at all. That was a big test. Fletcher clearly a very good, physical striker with a good touch. We were comfortable. And Taylor was in that important central of the 3. And he didn't put a foot wrong. He should get better too. Still so young for a centre back.

  11. Delighted for him to make his debut today, I work with a close relative of his & before this chap even knew that I was a fan he told me James has always wanted to play for City since he was a little kid & really is a massive fan of the club. He told me that James had said to him once that he would rather not be a professional footballer if it meant playing for anyone else. Whatever happens now he can say he has played for his club, something thousands of us never get to do. Let’s hope today was his first of very many games for us.

  12. Hmm, I think the spelling error is deliberate. "Toghe" in Italian means "robes". Robes is how I would say "Rhodes" with a cold. Rhodes is famous for the bronze statue of the Colossus of Rhodes. Bronze is a formulation of yellow. Fenerbahce are nicknamed "the Yellow Canaries". Farewell Fam

  13. With all this talk of a second wave, I vote we end the season now. Let's use the points per game system same as last season..... Forest, Wycombe and Wednesday down Us and Reading in the automatic spots. Congrats to Reading. It's been a long hard season

  16. This is wrong. People want the government to pay footballers salaries at a time when nurses earn £25k per year. Get a grip. It's not tax payers money that should be paying for footballers to play. It should be spent on the NHS and the true hero's of this pandemic Why don't they start by asking the wealthy owners to pay!!! Same as they did with virgin and Branson? Scrap the FFP for a year and let owners fund it!... Failing that, players have to take a pay cut. Delay vat returns for a year Do a deal with sky to broadcast all matches on tele instead of net.

  18. Similar to Four Candles What a joy to watch intelligent 'natural' movement and angles... Something we've been missing for ages, especially up front. Makes the game so much easier, and creates chances and opportunities...even at thrown ins we moved...I was gobsmacked. Even if we concede and lose a few...I'm sure our fan base will respond in a positive manner...as it's how football should be played and entertaining. Give it a go playing like that and I'm sure most will be happy. Was great to see last night.

  19. I love the diversity of views on here and getting in to debate with people, but I just wanted to make a quick message to highlight a couple of posters who bring a bit of added value (more than just opinion) to the forum and go a bit above and beyond the norm. @Davefevs bringing all this data and happily finding info that other posters request. Love City but we're not a big enough club that we would get this kind of analysis and breakdown without a fan doing this kind of leg work. I personally love stats but don't have the time or energy to dig into this kind of thing properly and it can b

  21. Not seen it mentioned anywhere else but saw a post of his on social media yesterday when he said he was now unemployed, so clearly we have released him. Bit sad that it ended like this, I do appreciate we kept him around the club to let him get fit again but think he certainly deserves some recognition for his time with us. For what it’s worth I reckon he will go down as one of the most underrated keepers to play for us, excellent at claiming crosses, great reflexes & good distributor of the ball. One injury too many possibly but he got us out of a right pickle 2 seasons ago

  27. I absolutely love Dean Holden. I was really upset by his appointment - underwhelmed, deflated, angry. But every time he speaks I admire him more and more. I have never wanted a City manager to succeed more, purely because he sounds like one of the most honest, down to earth, REAL blokes I've ever heard. I'm a soppy bastard at the best of times but the pride he had when speaking about his mum and dad made my jaw drop. What a wonderful representative we have for BCFC on our hands here. He cares. It feels like he cares. Good luck Deano, we're behind you.

  29. If I’d have known he was gonna play, I wouldn’t have shelled out a tenner. The worst midfielder I’ve seen in many a year at our place. Watching him run around after El Ghazi tonight was like a slapstick comedy. I half expected El Ghazi to custard pie him at any time. He’s like a 10 year old playing in a men’s game. Runs everywhere, but does nothing. Lesson learnt for me tonight - wait for the team sheet before buying the stream. Awful.

  31. Baker is hardly a sick note..his injuries have often come from putting his body or head in ,and that hurts ,he never pulls out of a challenge so give the guy a little respect.

  32. We are no doubt getting over excited....but if we can't wax lyrical about that performance and some of the football and talent / potential that was on show last night then we may as well give up watching the game.

  36. Haven’t seen it mentioned on here, but lots of pics doing the rounds of Dean Holden plus his brother and dad visiting the Three Lions Pub yesterday - as promised on the Sound of the City interview. Apparently he was there for several hours chatting to everyone and playing pool. A small thing but another gesture that’ll buy him lots of goodwill from City fans. Was anyone on here there?

  37. Imagine you'd be pleased about today. They never really got started and we deserved the win and place in the next round. Odd thing is they beat us here in the League last season and we were going to play them over there in the return fixture in March until all games were stopped with the pandemic thing. Thought we would lose today, we don't do well in cup games but Lambert surprised many by putting out a strong side and the players seemed determined and created a number of opportunities. The second round draw is believe a North / South divide so we'll play someone similar som

  38. If in 1982 someone said that we would have the ground, training facilities and infrastructure that we have now, I wouldn’t have believed them. Im one of many that paid hard earned cash to buy shares to keep the club alive. The fact that we’ve have now got a billionaire benefactor whose family are genuine supporters is something I would only have dreamed of. Yes, many of us are miffed at how the last few months have gone, but we are in a very good place regarding the future of our club.... and if you were a supporter of the blue few back in 1980 you would not have believed how the gap

  46. A lot have been calling for him to be moved on. Thought he looked getting up to fitness and in control tonight. Think there's so much more to come from him. Every time he recieved the ball his head was up looking for a pass. Don't right him off,type of player every club wants.

  47. I think people are being overly sensitive about this. He says he had “a few tweets”. He didn’t write the headline which is just trying to give the story an angle and tempt in readers and perhaps misjudges what was said. He’s always pretty dry with his humour and I think sometimes that gets misconstrued.

  49. If someone told me back in 2008 after the play-off final defeat that that season would be our highest league finish for at least another 13 seasons, I would have bitten their nose off.
