  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  14. I really can't believe how many people believe figures being banded about by the Government. Before Covid...the majority of people believed politicians etc were in it for their own personal gain, were liars, and had agendas, and gave out stats that suited those agendas. Covid comes along, and all of a sudden people believe everything they are being told by the Government. It's nuts. It's a world pandemic, that's being addressed differently from country to country. Each doing something differently...like covid acts differently in each country Look how Sweden has wor

  16. Not sure if this pic has already been posted (maybe even by me), but I saw it on fb today and I think it’s fascinating. The East End minus the roof, the old stand that was bombed in WW2, the area around the ground looking so different..... So much history. I’m very glad we stayed at Ashton Gate.

  18. Or people are looking at the information given and drawing a similar conclusion. I see lots of criticism of the government, not people believing everything at all. Using Sweeden as an example just shows you don't really understand the situation. There has been a lot of discussion and good articles written about it. Firstly it did lock down in places, it wasn't completely open. It's a very different country to the UK. Try comparing them to their neighbours. Hint: Sweeden had 57 deaths per 100k, compared to 5 in Norway and 11 in Denmark. Nobody I can see has suggested we proceed

  19. I wanted Hughton over Holden, why’s that a bad thing? Once Holden was appointed and I got over the underwhelming feeling that Steve and Mark had helped create with their rhetoric, I wanted nothing more then City (with manager number x in charge) to be successful. based on observable, rational evidence, why wouldn’t you pick Hughton over Holden? Its hardly madness.

  21. I can understand honest banter with Holloway but have never understood the animosity towards him. As a boy from East Bristol its hardly surprising he supported and then played for the SAGS. Loyal to the club he supported he was passionate about playing for them and not surprisingly took delight when City were beaten. We take as much delight when the SAGS lose. Whatever people think of him he's proven himself to be a decent manager and I have no trouble trusting Morton and Edwards to his care.

  26. Well, after pacing around at half-time convinced we would lose 1-0 to a Barry Bannan goal, I thought that second half was wonderful. My opinion is that we do not seem to have that soft underbelly we have seen so often in the last few years. We seem a lot more streetwise. The additions of Martin, Mawson (on the pitch) Brunt (more off the pitch I suspect right now), and Simpson and Downing owe a lot to this. Even more impressive is the response after getting a bit of a lesson v Villa. Shows a real clarity and focus around our direction. We seem to be able to see out games comfortably a

  27. He’s a really good player. I think his critics should take a closer look at his career, he was a regular in The Prem with Villa, then a regular at Derby when they were a far better side than we were. Last season he was available for 45 out of 46 games, only missing the Blackburn one following his positive Covid test. In his first season with us he was available for 45 out of the 46 as well. Aside from this his attitude, work rate & professionalism are exemplary & although not a prolific scorer is good for around double figures each season. He cost us £2m, so the sam

  34. This thread only highlights that Covid is the new Brexit, people have picked their sides and can't seem to see the sense in any other opinion. The idea of going to the pub to meet the fans is excellent and full of good intentions however as soon as it was first mooted on the 20man interview my first thought was "is this the right time?". Once the photographs appeared on Facebook my first thought was DH could be in hot water over this, if this was a Premier League manager the press would have been all over this by now, the likes of Piers Morgan would be creaming themselves on GMB and

  35. Thanks for a good listening. DH take a couple of drinks in Three Lions on saturday and then top of the table sunday. In swedish we say he has bollsinne, it means he knows how a ball is rolling, not only in the field, in life. Early days but so far so good. Bentley said everyone work for the team and help each other. The aim is to get a unit and I think Holden and his staf are in progress. Our team, squad, looks sharp and from being a pessimist, end of last season, Im now look at it in a positive way. One game at the time but in this moment we are top of the table. The vibes are good! COYR!!!

  37. Having looked through the photos, I have to agree it's not a good look. One bloke has both his hands on Holden's face FFS If we get a positive test in the squad/staff within the next 14 days the media will be all over this. Great that Holden was keen to do it, but bad timing unfortunately.

Everything they do is a 'Budget' version. They embarrass themselves. Can't wait to see them try to emulate a new player on the roof......of the tent. That should end well.
