  1. It did get people talking ...then people googled the organisations website and read what they stand for. Imo..BLM has had a negative effect...not a positive one. Where the great majority of fans are fully behind anti racism, it irked many that a political organisation was being backed and that kneeling at the start of every game actually watered down the sentiment. People then resented it. I'm glad a black player has stood up and refused to kneel and use BLM as a statement. He will get more respect for doing so...and him doing so gives a positive slant, that racism is wro

  2. Kick it out does sweet f all if we’re being honest. BLM actually made waves and got people talking. I don’t understand people’s issue with it.

  3. I went for a walk today at Ashton Plantation which happens to have a path that walks right next to the failand training ground. Watched the boys train for a bit and had a couple of observations about our injured players. - Walsh and Sessegnon were together doing laps and then light ball work, and movement - Williams was working on his own doing some passing and movement drills. All seemed to be moving pretty well and seemed in decent spirits. I haven’t really kept up on what has been said by Holden re injuries, so don’t know if any of this is new or useful news, bu

  4. Some of you may have seen that Scotty, off his own back, has made himself available for zoom calls with local junior football teams during lockdown. My team, Yate Utd, had a call with him and Pato today. 30 very happy 9 year olds, including a couple of Rovers. We even made the radio on Sound of the City tonight. Theres usually a negative side to be found but in this, genuinely none. A great thing to do by Scott, Pato and others (Tinns, COD) who I know are doing calls as well. Superb by all concerned.

  8. At last...some common sense. A good read and gives his reasons which I agree with. It's a political organisation not a statement. Football should never be associated with it. Should of stuck with Kick Racism Out. https://www.nottinghampost.com/sport/football/football-news/nottingham-forest-striker-lyle-taylor-4872901

  10. Some of the best players in the world are one dimensional, what it comes down to is playing to their strengths. No football club in a second tier will ever have a full squad of outstanding players, but you can have players who in the right situation are outstanding. Wells can score, and score a lot, but he has to be utilised correctly and that's not happening right now. This club will never be fighting for promotion until we can actually get someone in charge that can get the best out of our players and will be able to identify the players they need rather than having Ashton signing

  11. Go on then I’ll give an update. Hoped he’d have gone in there ripped it up but hasn’t quite panned out. Hamstring injury hasn’t helped but essentially Luton are an established squad with no injuries that are doing well. Joe has done well when he’s played (the twittersphere seem to like him) but not enough to make him a regular starter. There’s been no falling out Frustrating for me to see the injuries at City and say what if but no point in that really Nice to see you guys still think about him. All the best

  15. The BBC have called their result yesterday their first win since July. Does it really count against that shambolic outfir across town? Then on BBC MoTD highlights, they (two women, politically correct in every sense out of three) desrbided the home team as 'Bristol' - does this both anyone on OTIB? There is only One Team in Bristol and they certainly werent losing to a team in pink shirts yesterday. Worth a letter or two to the national broadcaster who seem to think football commentary should join cricket and rugby commentary as being best delivered by ladies who have never played in

  19. Martin & Diedhiou Link-up: Not the most natural pairing but for 60 minutes it showed that two "big men" can be effective. Martin (7) has dropped into a pocket to receive a ball from Rowe (out of picture). Adelakun wide left, Diedhiou in between the two centre-backs, Semenyo looking to get into the box, whilst Bakinson has broken past his marker (Cannon). Martin gets it into Diedhiou's feet who squares up his man and feeds Martin who's continued his run. Martin's shot from a narrow angle is saved. But good link-up all the same. Diedhiou's goal: This w

  21. Everyone knows the real oppressed people are gammons who have to deal with something being "shoved down their throats" by watching a group of blokes kneel for 8 seconds once a week or so. Just like covid conspiracy nuts are now all of a sudden obsessed with mental health and mask pollution, the people mentioned above are now suddenly huge fans of Kick It Out as well. And for the record, politics has ALWAYS been in sport, there are many many examples through history - to say otherwise is laughable.

  23. Many on here, myself included, would've been very happy to sell Bobby Reid for £500k or less up until 2017 when he was 24 years of age. Young players need time. What's great about Semenyo is he has the untrainable physical attributes for the modern game. He's fast, athletic, tall and powerful. He has a decent footballing brain too. Composure and positioning can be trained and generally comes with experience. Semenyo doesn't have a typical academy schooling and it shows at times. It'll come. A good comparison is Tyrone Mings. I've heard this from someone who used to coach at Chippenh

  24. Proper club! Back then a night out in Bristol was raw, special and superb - the kids had a riot and enjoyed every minute - we didn’t wake up every day and think “what can I be offended about today?!” - unlike today’s millennial snowflake darlings, we just got on with it - we went at it hard, on a tide of ska, punk, reggae and mod music - we didn’t care about anything, we just went for it - The Specials, The Beat, Madness, The Selecter, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Bob Marley, The Jam, The Who and The Kinks provided a spectacular backdrop to our teenage angst - we identified with everything they

  25. So pleased to have him back and thought he was superb today, dominate in the air and confident on the ball. Just hope he can stay fit as exudes class and with Kalas and one from Mapps/Vyner or Baker will give us the platform to build from in a 3-5-2. Thought our performance dipped the minute he went off but underlined today that class is permanent. The biggest positive from today!

  26. I don’t see how his wife running a successful make up business would impact his football. Korey Smith’s wife has double the following (and is twice as unbearable) and that seems fine. Someone’s just plucking stuff out of the air there. When I was helping out with food donations at AG, Kasey and his girlfriend were also the only people to do massive shops and deliveries to food banks around Bristol off their own back too.

  28. It wasn't great today but we've been worse and we are through. The hard truth is that Portsmouth are a top League 1 side and we are a very mediocre Championship side so there was never going to be much in it. A couple frustrating things for me, and they are not limited to todays performance: 1. It's been mentioned by a couple people already but just the complete lack of concentration and taking care in possession. Even from kids football you are coached to "look after the ball". What the hell is wrong with our professional players? It's absolutely infuriating! Even straight forward p

  29. Really not sure what to make of that today. A very mixed performance, but despite the win, I don’t think it’s good enough. I saw good things, I saw bad things. The good: First half I thought we had a decent shape, I thought Adelakun drifted in from the left to give Rowe a bit of space. Rowe then getting it had a passing option infield to Martin, who got more balls into feed in that period that the last 2 months! Bakinson also got straight balls into the feet of Martin and Diedhiou because there was decent / fluid movement in front of them. Semenyo did similar, drifti

  31. I apose all politics in sport. What I find very evident in this thread, is that those who support BLM seem to call anyone who apposes it a racist or thick, name calling...or 'people like you'. Astonishing...it's the type of attitude as humans we are trying to stamp out. Debate...not accusation or name calling. People who do that just discredit themselves and what they support.

  32. So glad they are being forced to go ahead with their game tonight despite their management team and 14 players having to self isolate after the unnecessary training trip abroad. They, along with other clubs, are a very good example of why ‘elite’ sport, in particular football, should be suspended during this lockdown.

  35. I highly doubt it. The reasoning some posters give are so vague as well, I’d like to know exactly what it is they’ve seen that makes these ‘outside influences’ so much stronger here than every other player we have on our books. Imagine a few heads would fall off if Palmer posted his flash cars in the same way Kalas does!

  36. The Fulham manager thinks it is 'scandalous' that his poor, downtrodden collection of feckless millionaires have only been given 2 days and a bit to get ready to play a game of football far, far away from Fulham in North London. It always ceases to amaze me the complete lack of a sense of perspective from some people in football. A scandal Scott is when something bad actually happens, probably as a result of corruption or negligence. For example the Government spending £12 billion on a shitty Test and Trace system as supplied by their cronies.

  37. He does have a point though, schedules for players are meticulously planned for gym, nutrition, injury prevention and rest etc. On 48 hours notice they’ve been told they’re playing, people will throw out the ‘boo hoo poor millionaires comments’ etc but it is ridiculously short notice for preparing for a game. They said the first they heard of it was Saturday and it’s only been organised because of Tottenham’s game with Villa being postponed. So either way Tottenham knew they had a game and their schedule set for such, Fulham had planned for 6 days rest for the players which probably also influ

  38. Posters come on OTIB because they have one thing in common, a strong interest in Bristol City F.C. They come in all ages, from all backgrounds and life experiences, so a love of BCFC may be just about the only thing they have in common. Why would any of us then expect them to share our views on everything else? Last time I looked - a long time ago - there was a clique on the politics forum who are far more interested in ganging up on people on that forum than discussing matters BCFC on this one. The difference as I see it is the football forum is almost entirely for friend

  40. Some people are unbelieveable. Make sweeping statements based on 1 game about someone's ability to perform on an ongoing basis. I thought he played well. Kept shape when we were defending very well and drifted in off the wing to decent effect. Despite scoring the winner we looked much weaker with him off and Wells on. He can only be judged when given a run of games so he can settle.

  42. Agreed. No surprise really though is it. Current team is full of proof. Nagy - showed in his first couple of games what he was about. Hailed as the messiah. Then got injured and tombola’d, suddenly he’s lightweight and a running headless chicken. Now he’s playing regularly he’s arguably one of our best players. Vyner - He’s not good enough because he’s been out on loan and at national Scottish pub league Aberdeen. Oh look, a settled run in our team and turns out he’s really quite decent O’Dowda - on the whole useless and ineffective. Now marginally less useless and ineffecti
