  1. Is it for real or a wind up?
  2. You can see how LJ likes to play and use his players. It's very much the old Ajax theory, where players are comfortable rotating in different positions over the park and covering for one another without fear. It's very fluid...
  3. Imo we will be playing many formations throughout the season. During a game it will change, and how we set up to play will change depending on who we are playing. The modern game is forever evolving...we will not be sticking to one way of playing. We will play to our strengths and looking to exploit an opponent's weaknesses...each game is different.
  4. Sad news indeed...used to love watching him play when watching Lazio.
  5. Again another great listen....thank you Shtanley. I think Jonathan Pearce would be an entertaining interview.
  6. If you want to do Florence and the rest of Tuscany, I can recommend basing yourself in Pisa. Easy from Bristol...Pisa airport 10 mins from Pisa. Very reasonable accommodation in Pisa. Then Train it to the likes of Sienna, Lucca, Florence. Fast, reliable and not expensive. All within an hour. Florence is like Venice...rammed. Love Italy though...enjoy.
  7. Yes that makes sense mate...it was the season before 2014. Even the main site says it was his involvement that led to the 'new system' of recruiting and identification in 2014...obviously early doors in its development and how we went about our business identifying players. https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/bristol-city-appoint-mark-ashton-as-chief-operating-officer/
  8. He worked as a Consultant for us at the beginning of 2014. He developed our talent identification system and had a role in upgrading our Academy.
  9. Fan and supporter pretty much the same thing...you need another tag...'Follower'.
  10. You just know all the flags will be banned on H&S reasons...sorry...but you know how it rolls

    He has all the attributes of an attacking midfielder to me. Would be perfect in a 4312....playing a high roaming roll behind a front two.
  12. A penalty ( a free shot on target from twelve yards ) most given never justify that reward, for a slight knock or hand deflection. The reward is far too great...as often the play beforehand would never have led to a goal scoring chance. A penalty imo, should only be awarded if a goal scoring chance was denied. So many games decided by penalty decisions that never would have led to a goal from open play. What's the point in having intricate tactics anymore? The penalty and Car system now encourage a 'Wimbledon' type approach. Get 5 big lads in the box, keep pumping balls into them...and eventually it will hit a hand or a foul awarded.
