  1. Paul Cook a good shout I would think.
  2. Or moaning about our performance today! We had a similar Weds Sat lunchtime schedule (plus lots of injuries)
  3. Danny Wilson also provided what I regard as my worst experience as a City fan - that play off final v Brighton. Cotterill delivered what Wilson couldn’t - and in style. Good luck to the guy. I hope he does well.
  4. Dean taking no nonsense in the post match press conference either. Fair play. Quite what some fans and some journalists were expecting from us today after the last fortnight is beyond me. “Dean, you must be so pleased with that result, do you think your team looked a little bit rusty because of the international break or the lack of preparation? Is that a serious question, we looked a bit rusty? Both teams in the final third for much of the game didn’t create a huge deal, but there was a lot of grit, great defending, and a good result. But from both teams, it wasn’t the best-a
  5. He comes across as a resilient, no nonsense, no excuses kind of a guy. He is building a team in his image which is great. That was one hell of a resilient performance today given the circumstances of the past fortnight.
  6. Interesting comment from the BBC Radio Derby guy: “Derby said goodbye to some senior players in the summer who haven't been replaced, including striker Chris Martin, who was pivotal for the style of play.”

    Brunt

    Just wait til he gets us over the line in a 1-0 play off final win!

    Brunt

    We’ll see. If his experience helps get us over the promotion line where we have failed before, then his signing will have been worth it. Too early to judge for me.

    Vyner

    I was questioning the ‘so far out of his depth’ comment. If Baker and Mawson were fit then yes they’d probably be higher up the pecking order (if on form) but that doesn’t mean that he is ‘so far out of his depth’ and indeed our points tally with him in the side would suggest that he isn’t

    Nagy

    I’ve never really understood why Nagy hasn’t been close to the match day squad for most of this season given our midfield injuries and the fact we saw some really good performances from him last season (especially before the injury when everyone was saying ‘Marlon who?’) but also when we hit our peak away at Fulham in December. He looked good in the deep central role today.

    I accept that he is still learning/developing, but to suggest that ‘he is so far out of his depth’ when we sit on 20 points after 11 games and after the clean sheet tonight - come on!
  12. And great that Dean countered with this: Bristol City head coach Dean Holden said: "If Neil Harris feels like he's had his wallet stolen out of his pocket then he must have been watching a different game to me.
  13. Not quite pot luck! I thought the defensive shape was good today, and Holden indicated that they worked very hard on it (so not luck). We also created some decent chances and deserved the win in my view. He changed to three up front to go for it and given Huddersfield were leaving only one up front so we could lose a CB - I’d rather our manager was positive like this. I’m not convinced this means we ditch the back 3 in every match from now on. As for the 10 matches overall, we have 17 points which is decent. I sometimes think that only 3 nil wins every match would keep some people happy! That’
  14. Ian on the Forever Bristol City podcast in August wasn’t far off then! I recall he said 18 from the first 10 (to some laughter). A good start especially given a brand new coaching team and the significant injuries (Baker, Mawson, Williams, Walsh, Weimann, and even Kalas and Dasilva have missed a few).
