  1. 2-1 Benarous scores after a good press. Looking better this half. Nige made a brief appearance by the dug out during half time. Benarous. Quick reply by Boro 3-1
  2. Janneh looking good and Benarous looks a player otherwise not impressed so far. Soady having a tough time as are the Centre backs who look indecisive. A yellow for Palmer but Boro are fairly comfortable and sharper all round. On this evidence Bell and Pearson not pushing for first team but Janneh could be.
  3. 2-0. Centre backs missed chances to clear it there. Feeling like a normal home game already
  4. Boro looking more dangerous. Could have 3 by now
  5. 1-0 Boro. Poor clearance by Taylor from a cross
  6. For once I don’t think 10-12 games will be as good a time to evaluate. Personally I think the stretched resources and post covid financial effects will take longer to really bite. The promoted teams are already starting to struggle but others may well do okay until November/December before the unrelenting schedule really bites. I see us as one of the teams who could be stronger in the second half of the season whereas a good few will emulate our recent seasons by really falling away in the New Year.
  7. Like him or loathe him Holloway has done what no City manager has done for many decades in getting a team promoted to the Premier League. Whatever we think of him that makes him a rarity as a Bristolian and therefore understandable that the local press turn to him for comments and opinion. That he is also outspoken and controversial and divides opinion only makes him more attractive to a publication that survives on click bait. I imagine that judging by the response on here Bristol Live have achieved exactly what they wanted to. If you don’t like Ian Holloway don’t read it because in doing so and responding you are guaranteeing that he will get plenty more offers from Bristol Live.
  8. I think the ‘not being on his wavelength’ is a key point. Many of our players were not adaptable and had not played at a higher level. I think many that under-rated him did so because he did not have the right players around him. Now he has King, James and Martin around him that bring out the best of him. Martin with extra fitness is also benefiting likewise as are the young ones. This is the ‘Pearson effect’ beginning to emerge.
  9. For me the disappointing thing is his positioning, well inside which means that diagonal ball is easy to play over him to their wide man hugging the touch line who had time to bring the ball down and control it before Jay got to him. In effect the same tactic employed by us (and exploited by opposition teams) frequently over the last few seasons to our detriment.
  10. That’s Bell, Pearson, Towler and Conway all recently from the 1st team squad. I wonder if the game is being used as a loan shop-window for them and 1 or 2 others. It could be that it’s just to get them some game time and some will return to the 1st team squad in the coming weeks or maybe NP has made decisions on short term futures elsewhere for some now.
  11. I would imagine that the whole point of NP addressing the spine of the team first is to avoid just that scenario. Consolidation maybe but relegation is not a way to progress.
  12. 3-0 down to the worst team in the league. Warnock out !
  13. It’s only available to users outside the UK now as it was before the pandemic. Some mid week games (if not on Sky) will be shown.
  14. To be honest it’s hard to say. I would say maybe in a few months if everything continues to improve but my son will be there for Blackpool as I don’t want my choice to affect him. I am late 60’s so naturally cautious but am considering the possibility of not returning at all but then my not being there will impact his enjoyment. It’s also missing the whole social experience of meeting up with friends and family from pre match onwards. Difficult choices.
