  1. Thanks Bob that was good, would be good if Robins TV could get something like this together.
  2. Thing is to me last night felt different. I felt we controlled the whole game and dominated, it might have been more exciting to watch had we kept taking the game to Derby in the 2nd half but the reality is we didn't need to. They reminded me of us last season trying to break down teams (particularly at home) who were playing for a draw or 1 goal win. We would work the ball wide and rely on a cross dropping right or a great long range strike, we struggled to break teams down through the middle. We seem to have addressed this issue with Palmer, Afobe and Wieman's combination of passing and movement. You are always going to be a little nervous with a few minutes left and a 1 goal lead but I never really doubted we would see it out.
  3. Ahhh makes sense. I might have to start recording them myself. Last season they had a phase of putting the full match up on Robins TV but don't seem to be doing that this year. Sometimes you just want to go back and relive one little bit that stuck in your mind. Or so many people say something that seems so off to you, that you want to go back and make sure your not crazy!
  4. Where are you finding the full game? I'd like to rewatch but can't seem to find it?
  5. Also that goal highlights the all round great movement of that front 3. If you pause it when Palmer plays the ball in there are 8 players between him and the goal (7 on on screen the LB just out of shot). Palmer, Afobe and Wieman are then in the right place throughout the move and free of markers. If Wieman isn't on the end of Palmers shot then Afobe is right there too. Side note just realised Palmer, Afobe and Wieman make the acronym PAW so we call them a Front PAW!
  6. I was glad he got an assit for his mishit shot because that ball into Wieman at the beginning of that move was something else and deserved an assist. We just haven't had a player who can pick a pass like that and it means we are a threat through the middle in a way we haven't been in a long time. Check it out in this clip:
  7. Some mixed but interesting views on the Derby forum: Not sure what’s more galling, the performance or the fact Andi ducking Weimann was the best player on the pitch I really dislike Bristol fans. Tinpot bunch, cider is poo anyway you twits. Bristol looked dangerous at will, we didn't. More like dangerous by accident mostly. They have had the same manager building them up for several seasons. We dont and Cocu and the team need time to gell. It will happen. They had three shots on target to our four. They were two up at half-time, one up for most of the match. They looked dangerous whenever they could be bothered to go forward. We didn't. Kalas and the Center Back Taylor Moore were dominant of anything that came in. interesting game - Bristol ok and decent at the back but we were very sloppy with lots of the same old same old Bristol defended well but also harried the rocks off us. They were hungry and clever. Very good composure by Weimann for his goal , wish we saw that on a more consistent basis here. If he was still here no doubt he’d have smashed that over the bar or straight at the keeper I don't want to be too negative, because I don't think it's all bad. We've certainly played worse and won. I think Bristol showed why they will be up there at the end of the season, both goals as frustrating as they are from our side were extremely well taken. Weimann showing that level of composure in the box - it was like watching a cat bark. The second, definitely down to Malone, but a very good dummy in the box made that goal. Both, had they panicked, would have blocked. Fair play to them for that. I felt the first half Bristol had a concise game plan that was very Rowett-esque. They targeted our physical weakness and relied on their individual quality. It worked as it did with Rowett when he was here. They will be there or thereabouts, big signing in Bentley who has always been a top keeper at this level. Baker was outstanding too. Brownhill is a grafter, ironically what we're lacking in that position.
  8. Sorry but it's comments like this that are just ridiculous. Wieman runs more than any other player for a start. But if you are genuinely trying to say Fammy didn't run and work hard after coming on you either have it in for him and are blind to anything positive he could do or didn't watch the game and are acting like you did.
  9. Criticism of COD and Fam seems off to me. We started protecting the lead early on and asking Derby to break us down early on (which, bar an impressive strike, they couldn't). At that point Afobe offered little as we resorted to longer balls again. He definitely offered a threat on the break to get in behind but very little defensively. Fam comes on to the same service, he doesn't offer the run in behind but he tracks back and defends well (at least three interceptions around the edge of our box). Same with COD v Palmer - Palmer offers the killer ball but doesn't track/sit in to defend (although tjis side of his game has massively improved). Both COD and Fam came on and made better defensively and helped us see out the game. Would I start them over Afobe and Palmer? No I feel they are the better players but they both did their job and helped us get the three points. This obsession of bashing our own players is baffling and disappointing.
  10. Just chuck it out your window, don't worry who might be walking past.
  11. Just to add one thought, a perfectly timed slide tackle can actually win you the ball and take an opposing player out of the game temporarily. If you slide and win the ball cleanly quite often the player you've tackled will be down and you will be up and away from them.
  12. Transfermarket has him at 8 goals 13 assists in 75 games. link. Thats a goal or assist every about every 3.5 games. + I'd imagine a lot of those are sub appearances. I'd be interested to know how many times he's completed a full 90 for us (can't find the stats) not many I would imagine. I think he's a good player and his movement is actually really good against more disciplined defenders as he seems to run unusual channels and pop up all over the place. I'd understand if he or the club looked to move on but I'd rather keep him around and we're not likely to get a huge fee for him anyway.
  13. Are they directly produced by the club/Robins TV? I noticed the graphic to show 2nd half had the ifollow branding. I thought this was the efl match/highlights scheme we opted out of to do our own thing. Either way I agree, awful commentary and muting of the atmosphere. I rather not have it at all and have crowd volume at full.
  14. My thoughts were the deal would actually be with the club and player. Let's imagine we want COD off the books - we've decided we're not going to play him and want him off the wage bill (obviously not saying this is the case, just an eg) Club x wants him talk to us and his representatives and he pays up his contract with us (maybe with a small penalty) his contract is canceled and he signs for club x. Everyone is happy.
  15. I would imagine a player would pay out his contract to the club and we would give him a signing on fee to cover his expenses.
