  1. Not so much me, but my little boy Elliott. We met Scott through a friend & he organised for Elliott to have a little tour before the Sheffield Utd game last season. We ended up going into the changing rooms, meeting all the players & Lee Johnson. Scott gave Elliott an adult home shirt so the players could sign it. Each & every player were brilliant with Elliott & Scott’s act of generosity I will never forget. One funny moment was when Marlon & Patterson asked who was Elliott’s favourite player, he said “Bobby Reid”! My dad died on the Wednesday of that week & for that 30 minutes I forgot about it. So thanks Scott, you made a boy ( & his dad ) very happy. Only problem is, Elliott thinks it’s the norm! COYR
  2. Some Egyptian bloke, Moetab or something. We signed him, but for the life of me, I cannot remember him playing. COYR
  3. Movement, movement, movement. It’s our biggest problem in general imo. No angles created, no showing to feet. Although I can think of 2 players that do show & that would be Naggy & Massengo, although often it’s thrown towards their midriff! Feet & back, quite a simple concept. Give your teammate the opportunity to pass the ball back with one touch, now there’s a noble idea. Basics that I was taught when I was about 12 I would imagine. COYR
  4. If height is a factor in a total lack of movement & an understanding of creating an angle, then I totally agree. COYR
  5. Sno for Ajax, was immense that game. Suarez in the same game. Hoddle playing sweeper for Swindon. kevin Phillips gave a master class in forward play for West Brom, his movement was different class & proved you don’t have to be a big lump to hold the ball up. ( Ishmael Miller same game to a lesser extent). Kevin Doyle for Reading, again another great example of movement & touch. Richard Foster had a shot on his debut, I’m struggling after that. COYR
  6. Exactly my thoughts. My first thought was us, we definitely seem to have a good relationship with them & I can see him liking our business model. I can also see Ashton saying about Brexit etc. Thought it was a good watch, not sure if I like him or not in all honesty. COYR
  7. It really is a cliche & cannot believe I’m saying it, but we have to take one game at a time. Don’t get to ahead of ourselves, this league has has a way of biting you on the backside. Just tick each game off as they come along. There will be ups & downs between now & the end of the season, so we just have to stay all together. You listen to the Liverpool players at the moment & not only are they saying it, I believe they mean it. It’s what the best teams do. Yes we have a massive opportunity, but one game at a time. COYR
  8. Anyone know how Korey played? Is he getting back to anywhere near his best? I’ve always been a massive fan & cannot believe some fans take on him, although I accept we all have opinions. Another point, is it coincidence that this run has started around when he came back? I’m fairly sure this sort of coincidence has happened before with Korey coming back from injury. Top man, top player. COYR
  9. Absolute bargain imo. Best left back in the division. Won’t be here long unless we progress upwards. COYR
  10. I agree that it’s been a good transfer window, incoming & outgoing imo. Just shows that fans have to be patient, because there has been a lot on discontent about our lack of transfer activity. I think the other thing about this January is that we kept picking up points, while all our deals were obviously ongoing. So we are now in a good position to really kick on & challenge. COYR
  11. Few, thought it was something I’d done. COYR
  12. That’s brilliant news. Makes me proud to be a Bristol City fan. Well done everyone involved. COYR

    It’s ok wanting the players to sign a new contract, but the players have to want to sign a new contract. The players you have mentioned were all looking for bigger things. COYR
  14. Smith all day long. Great character, good player & is consistently talking to people around him. No one else even comes close in my opinion. Epitomises what you should want in a Bristol City player imo. COYR
  15. That makes two of us. COYR
