  1. Johnson calling upon fans

    I disagree
  2. Johnson calling upon fans

    Have people been suffering with selective hearing from that Leeds game? First half was silent, they were jeering their own players.. the ‘support’ was actually ironic to begin with, like when you’re part of an away crowd and 4-0 down so start singing for the hell of it.. during this period they scored so the atmosphere was good. It really wasn’t all that.
  3. Johnson calling upon fans

    I think you’re usually a good poster so I don’t understand these fairly vapid and reactionary posts you sometimes do.
  4. Diedhiou

    I think people are missing my point somewhat - Diedhiou has the frame to be a very physically strong guy, it's obvious. I believe he could be an incredibly strong and powerful player with some strength training. That's not to say he's not strong now, but he could be stronger based on his frame. Someone like Peter Crouch for example despite being a tall man doesn't have the frame to be strong. He's naturally an extreme ectomorph.
  5. Grigg .... one that got away?

    Not sure, don’t watch much of Cardiff. I think had Baker been playing we wouldn’t have. Our most important defender in my opinion.
  6. Grigg .... one that got away?

    In fairness Pisano and O’Neil are Johnson signings, both experienced but have been injured. Additionally Steele and Fielding are experienced.. you could argue Bryan is experienced too.. Pack and Smith.. Flint, Baker, Wright.. we do have experience in the side really. Experience isn’t just measured in age - those guys have lots of appearances.
  7. Diedhiou

    My point was he could be physically stronger. He's got the frame to be very muscular and strong but he's not really. Agreed!
  8. Diedhiou

    That's actually a good point, for someone of his frame I think he's not as strong as he could be. He's actually pretty small considering his frame.
  9. End of Promotion as we know it...and I'm feeling fine

    Yes I forgot that Adam Baker personally writes all the articles about the team in the national press..
  10. Seasonal "Progress"

    Sorry BCFC J but I can't tell which bits you are replying to individually. If you can do that I will respond further.
  11. Heineken Lounge

    It's good. I assume you're doing the hospitality package? Only the 1 free drink but basically unlimited food of surprisingly good quality. If you're in that corner, the view isn't for everyone but it's a good experience. They usually have City players of days gone by chatting to you in there too. Good experience, value for money isn't even that bad considering. Hope you enjoy.
  12. Seasonal "Progress"

    Last few 'months'? Our league form has only really suffered for the past 2. We're 6th with a free point cushion, it's incorrect to say we look like 'complete outsiders' when we're still in the playoffs. 'Comple outsiders' would be yesterday's opponents. Why? Unless you have inside info about their contract situations, I don't think there's much to be alarmed about. Reid may have an extension triggered by appearances similar to Pack. Of course you can, and no it isn't. We don't know that yet People get too hung up on short term form of other teams - aside from Wolves we've got the capability to beat anyone in the division and have a relatively good run in compared to others. Agree but I don't think that's the case. People want us to push on to get playoffs, and it's still within our control. That's the important thing. Two very important games coming up that really we need 4 points from.
  13. Perspective, please!

    Exactly - Leeds are a good side with a big budget. We've got a terrible record there and there's also the unpredictability of the new manager 'bounce' (depending on whether you believe that theory!) Our best centre half is coming back in, can you really imagine us losing 5 goals from winning positions with Baker in the side? I don't think so.
  14. End of Promotion as we know it...and I'm feeling fine

    It's like a self-preservation tactic I think. If it gets to April and it's mathematically impossible for people to get playoffs, they can say 'Well I did say back in February'. It also means they can subconsciously come to terms with it. I don't really understand the mentality either, we're still 6th. Until it's out of our hands then we've got it to play for which is a great position to be in by late Feb.
  15. End of Promotion as we know it...and I'm feeling fine

    Premature Agreed True Yes Good post - I don't agree it's over yet. Still plenty of time and it's in our hands. We are a good side and we even showed that in spells yesterday and vs Sunderland. Baker coming back will be a big factor but we're going to miss Pack. What is promising is we are scoring goals, we've scored 5 in the last 3 and all three were disappointing results. We need to try and get Diony up to speed very quickly as having options when we aren't scoring goals will make a difference.
