  1. I lose track of what the rules are these days. If it's 'any part of his body' in front of the last man then he's off. If it's 'daylight' then he's on. Personally, I think he's onside
  2. That drive through midfield which resulted in him hitting the post was magic, he's a class player who's only going to get better. RE: Dasilva v Bryan, I think JB played a more thoughtful game, whereas JD is all instinct and energy. I always said that Bryan should have played in central midfield- on the left side of a 3 I think he could have been brilliant. But overall, I think I'd take Dasilva; as much as I loved Joe when he was here

    The 4th Official added 3 minutes, Mr Hooper played 4! I thought he was pretty good though, especially compared to the general standard in the Championship in recent years
  4. I really don't think the primary issue in all this- even for Bristol City FC- is whether or not people think it was anything to do with our club and our fans
  5. I played 5-a-side with a Rotherham supporter yesterday and asked him about Vyner. He said "when he's good, he's fantastic. When he's poor you wonder how he's become a professional footballer." Sounds like Vyner still isn't comfortable at right back and regularly asks to be played centrally, so I don't think he's the right back of the future for us to be honest
  6. So how is having to deal with attitudes from the 1960s and 1970s 'moving forward'?
  7. Sorry fella, but that's bullshit. Every British person has indirectly benefited from slavery, Bristolians more than most. I'm not suggesting you need to feel some kind of personal responsibility or say "sorry" to every BAME person you meet, but at the same time you need to recognise that someone calling you a name referring to your skin colour is culturally very different to the abuse that Nathan Byrne got on Twitter, or the monkey noises aimed at Rose and Hudson-Odoi the other week
  8. I was going to post something similar but this is far more comprehensive than I would have bothered doing: thanks! It's not just Brexit; generally the language of discourse in this country has become more offensive- largely because you can do it anonymously from your smart phone in the pub
  9. We could get promoted having been on Sky less than 1/3 of any other top 6 side. I'm biased because I live oop north, but it seems ridiculous we're on TV as infrequently as we are. Especially given the cup run last year
  10. The bigger mystery is who was supposed to be marking Webster when he scored?!
  11. I still have no idea why a subset of morons still can't go to a football match without acting like utter pricks
  12. What a cracking afternoon out that was! Sheffield Utd are a good team (though probably not at their best): very solid, move the ball reasonably well and find space in the final third. But we were, aside from the first 10 min and a 10 min period in the second half, simply the better team. Korey grew into the game and was excellent by the time he went off. Hunt and Dasilva found space on the flanks. Brownhill and Pack were both great. Weimann was magnificent. But props to Johnson; he rolled the dice, made the substitutions and it really paid off. Paterson and Palmer both affected the game so positivley. Johnson seems to make those calls every week and more often than not, gets it right An extra shout to Diedhou too. The guys sat behind me kept calling him a donkey and commenting on he never wins headers (and yet our back 4 keep launching long balls at his head...), but watch the highlights; 3 city goals, three big contributions from Famara One final note. The ref was terrible The end
  13. The lads looked like they were absolutely buzzing at full time, hopefully that gives them a boost for the run in
  14. It looks fine. The city crest looked fine. My review: don't particularly care what the badge looks like
  15. Kalas perhaps showing why promoted teams haven't been that bothered about signing him...
  16. Seen him play a few times on TV when I've been in Vancouver. Big chap but quite athletic, good stopper, decent with the ball at his feet, prone to the odd howler. I always felt he was better-than-average in the MLS (from limited viewings), but I'm not sure what that means. Certainly surprised that Vancouver let him go, he had some awesome games for them

    Adam Johnson

    While there's an argument to be made that the age of consent is a pretty arbitrary number, it doesn't make what he did any less illegal. And he knew her age, knew she was half is age and seems to have pursued her pretty aggressively. The man's a wrong un HOWEVER, I've always believed that once someone has finished the punishment set for them by the judicial system, then they should be free to resume their career; whatever that career might be. If City signed him I'd be apoplectic with rage, but he should have every right to sign for a team and they should have every right to sign him in my opinion. Though both player and team will need to accept the consequences of that
  18. Trash one toilet block and you'll do thousands of pounds of damage. Toilets and sinks aren't cheap and plumbers don't work for free
  19. The kids been playing in League 2 for half a season, I imagine he's been kicked a fair bit already since the summer. A Norwich-supporting mate if mine went to Elland Rd when Norwich hammered Leeds (3-0 was it?) and said that Norwich just went at them from the start and Leeds crumbled defensively and couldn't get going up front. Now we're not Norwich but I think the lesson there is that sitting back and trying to contain Leeds isn't a great option. So if Semenyo is going to help keep them on the back foot then we should give him a go
  20. I'm not into conspiracy theories but here's a conspiracy theory I had sympathy for Leeds after the initial 'scandal'; not sure you can have a go at someone for standing on a public highway and watching some football training and if Derby were so precious about it, they probably should have put a fence up or something. However, there is no way that every team in the championship has a publicly accessible training ground, so that (in my opinion) is a different kettle of fish. There must have been some trespass or skullduggery involved. The fine is a big one though. I appreciate that all the changed kick off times are shit for the fans (I work in Leeds and lived there for nearly a decade, so I know a lot of Leeds fans) but the point I was making is that even paying a £200k fine, Leeds probably make more from tv money than most clubs in the division. I just find the idea of a conspiracy theory against any team pretty unbelievable but for that conspiracy to be against the jewel in Sky's championship crown is laughable I do agree though that the deification of Frank Lampard (who is doing a bang average job in my opinion) by Sky is pathetic
  21. True, but we weren't put on TV 19 times last season by an organisation that "hates us and wants to see us fail"
  22. Well most people have found it amusing so far It was also (in case you couldn't tell) q facetious comment; I used to live in Manchester and knew several Man Utd fans who watched them home and away. I always preferred the Utd fans to the City ones, who were just bitter and obsessed with their rivals (who does that sound like?!). However, it's still a fact that Man Utd derive millions of pounds of profit from people in the home counties who chose to support them because they were successful and in my experience tend to be borish know-it-alls who don't care about football outside of the top 10 in the Premier League. Man Utd fans from Manchester/Salford/Trafford are like any other; passionate and connected to their local club How did you become a Man Utd fan?
  23. Actually, if Leeds had spied on every opponent until that point then the chances are there was some criminal trespass involved. I agree that if some intern has been sent down make some notes on a training session whilst stood on the pavement then Leeds shouldn't be punished and the rules should be changed. If Bielsa or anyone else has instructed that intern to trespass then it's a bit different Anyway, don't really have a lot of sympathy for Leeds; the "everybody hates us and is trying to keep us down" narrative from Leeds fans is pathetic. Last season Leeds earned over £1million from TV matches, but apparently Sky hates them and has it in for them...
  24. To be fair, it was a local game for the fans...
  25. Wouldn't be surprised if Leeds v Wednesday gets moved by the police anyway
