  1. I don't see another striker coming in - at least not a 20/25 goal a season player costing a small fortune. I think LJ has faith in FD - and let's face it he has improved each season. The stats show how many chances we created last year - which highlights that the midfield must be doing their job well. I don't understand the critisism that Pack gets from some on this forum, for me he has improved year on year and did a brilliant job last year without the defensive qualities of Korey alongside him. And Brownhill will show his undoubted class this year. They key is keeping hold of Webster now. We have a great defence with good backup if needed, if Webster stays we will finish in the top 6. True a proven 20 goal a season striker would cement our chances of that and probably push us for an automatic promotion place, but looking at how this club has built a team it's a case of slowly slowly catchy monkey. I suspect the striker will come in the form of a loan signing - or in the January window if we are still struggling to get the goals needed.
  2. 13 Million is a good bit of business. Yes the lad may have great potential but he was not a first team regular and was still far from the finished article in terms of consistency. Sure he is an athlete and may well turn out to be an England player in a few years to come - but its money in the bank for us that we can spend on the types of players we need. Namely a 20 goal a season striker and perhaps a new goalkeeper and a midfield workhorse. Personally id let COD go as well - especially if they can get 6 or 8 million for him.
  3. I suspect that Derby will lose to Swansea and we will beat Millwall - in which case it will do down to the last game of the season. Ultimately we will come up short regardless of the final day result. A disappointing end to the season - but we have punched well above our weight. Not sure what SL's 5 year plan is - but assume he will look at this season as progress. That said even with a backup squad of talented youngsters we need leaders in the team and on the bench. and that 20+ goal a season striker in order to kick on. That was what was missing this season. We would easily have had made the playoffs with a decent striker. I love Famara's work rate and passion. and think he has a major role to play in our progress in the next few years - but we need a consistent goal scorer - simple as.
  4. Quiet afternoon at work - too much thinking time ! I reckon another 7 points and we make the playoffs, could possibly be as few as 6. Win against Reading is crucial but as they are in a relegation battle of their own this could be our toughest match. Lets hope it doesn't come down to the last game against Hull away
  5. He is another player in this team that just gets better and has benefited from LJ's patience. He is still learning - a couple of wayward passes just outside the 18 yard box in the second half that led to West Brom attacks, and also that shot/blast on goal when he should have squared it. That aside he gave them the run around all night !
  6. He is a great team player, and it was lovely to see that act of unselfishness last night. Whats even better is that a few others in the team are starting to behave in the same way. Fammy was also awesome last night, he gave the West Brom centre halves the run around, they must have hated playing against him. You have to love how passionate he and Matty Taylor are, something that has been missing at Ashton Gate for many a season. I know Flint had his moments but the last time I witnessed it was when Tammy Abraham was on loan with us - and to see how professional and passionate he was when he knew his career was heading away from Aston Gate just showed his class. Its that sort of behavior that lifts the crowd and the rest of the team - keep it up boys
  7. How many of us (myself included) were calling for LJ to be sacked a couple of years ago when we had that horrendous run of defeats? Fast forward 2 years and look where we are now ! The CV reads Carabao cup semi finalists, wins against multiple premier League teams including the historic night against Man Utd, and one of the few teams to genuinely give Man City a fright. Our best run in the FA cup for decades followed this season, and we now sit 5th in the championship table with 8 games left to play. Hats off to SL for giving LJ the time to learn from mistakes and build a team from the bottom up. I’m not sure how LJ does it - I’m left scratching my head at some team selections and tactical decisions - but he is the guy responsible for all of that success and has rewarded SL’s patience for sure. He will continue to make the odd mistake and cost us a game or two here and there but I’m sure he learns from every mistake. Now if he could just get himself a new voice he’d have the Premier League clubs fighting for his signature ! Actually it’s just as well he is who he is
  8. Pre match and for small periods the atmosphere was electric where i was sat. Unfortunately when it mattered most last few minutes before half time and first 10 minutes after it was dead. Poor old Mags will long lament that horrific error that led to the first goal, that's what killed the atmosphere. Nobody really believed we could score 2 goals in the second half without reply. Shame really - at 0-0 at half time I think the gate would have brought the house down when the players came out for the seconf half.
