  1. On for Hernandez..has about 10 mins to make an impact
  2. Really was a game of two halves which the stats will back up. First half we were really exciting to watch with Palmer and Massengo pulling the strings ably supported by Afobe and Weimann's movement. It was like we were toying with Derby inviting them onto us and then bam take that. It would have been even more if Hunt's passing in from the wing matched the great positions he found himself in (not withstanding the the assist). Second half we resorted to too many hoof balls which I would really like us to improve on. It looks ugly when compared to the free flowing first half and really doesn't look like the same team. But as a defensive test it was a great second half and showed that we can nullify good teams when we have to. Massive 3 points on the back of Saturday and quite rightly we can all dream about how good this team could become if we can keep them all fit (which is already being tested!).
  3. Predict the opposite to the last 2 seasons...slow start until mid-October while the team sorts itself out. Possibly bottom half of table and then things will gather pace and we will rip into the play offs at full speed come May. If this be true then we will need to get behind them more than ever during the first few months as there will be plenty of panicers ready to throw in the towel at the first sign of a wobble!
  4. really depressing if you Google "Eddie Nketiah" and filter to the current news it is only Leeds being connected to his name by various media sources. This is either that they are so far Leeds rectum they cant see the light or genuinely that Leeds are now hot favourites to do one on us.
  5. Two glaring issue for me which are more tactical then personnnel space behind our wing-backs exploited time and time again by 40-50 yard cross field balls - Bielsa clearly watched us and could see a weekness in our set-up. cut back bloody cut backs - why when chasing back do we pile back in numbers only to over run and defend the 6 yard box but never pick up the 1-3 guys stood on the box with acres of space!
  6. finally got on (BCFC site) to see everybody leaving stage left!
  7. Really pleased for Lloyd and this exactly the right policy of the club. Sustainable investment in the academy, right manager giving young talent their break and loan systems in place to bed others in. When we get to the Premier league we won't have to sell but until then this will happen with the right price and player. Yes sad to see our own go but surely make sense in the longer run. On a side note, Brian Tinnion is surely due a cut of some of these transfers fees. What a great job he is doing behind the scenes.

    Definitely one to watch - has received rave reviews down here for the season and would fit the bill at 22 years old. If Portsmouth fail to negotiate the lottery of the play-offs and we end up needing a replacement ball carrying centre back he should be on the list of targets.
  9. yep you win the better 'action' photo comp but why are you still reading my shit?
  10. The picture isn't bull but if I could have worked out to edit a title after posting I would have done ....along the lines of "Why not hang around and give the team some love!" I can confirm it was my picture taken impromptuly and purely for personal reasons that I thought the rainbow over the top of the stadium gave a prophetic feel to the team and perhaps for next season (old romantic). However at the time I was also definitely underwhelmed by the fans exodus when in my mind it is traditional, come what may, that the team and manager/staff have a lap of honour and applaud the support and that appreciation is reciprocated. It wasn't empty and it wasn't taken at the final whistle as I have explained on several responses since. However the picture gives a pretty fair indication of the level support left in the stands and I think most who remained were as disappointed as I was that the vast majority couldn't hang around a while longer and show some appreciation. What I find more refreshing it that most got this and have discussed what may or may not be behind the lack of connection with the club. It is not about individuals or why they leave it is about the collective - 23,500 City fans (assuming 2k Derby) and perhaps 3-4000 stayed on to applaud their team and in what most would assume to be the last home game of the season. Maybe I have skewed memories but I pretty sure we had more fans stay behind in our relegation seasons!
  11. I have already replied if you care to read, that my picture was not taken at the whistle and I certainly don't have an agenda but I was intrigued as to the general point that the traditional lap of honour for the final home game of the season (whether to be extended or not) is a chance for many supporters to show appreciation to players and for them to show appreciation back. It is mutual and respectful and maybe not be for everybody who is sick and tired of yet another season of missed opportunities, but it did seem that a large majority couldn't get out quick enough yesterday. Anyway this will be the same sort of shit so jog on and read something more palatable to your good self.
  12. Well in that case the 20000 who left will be in the away section at Hull taking the chance to applaud them then?
  13. Yep probably 5 mins after the final whistle... City players just passing section 82. Also not completely empty if we are splitting hairs. BUT, my point is at the final whistle the stadium all but emptied and by the time the players has started to applaud the fans back believe me 3/4 or more of the city fans were already in their cars, on their buses or bikes or whatever. Put is this way, if only two players came over to applaud you for your efforts in supporting the team for the whole season would you be a tad disappointed in their efforts?
  14. I can get the 'some' bit, but surely the majority could sacrifice a bit of a delay in there Saturday evening schedule for a once a season appreciation. Just thought the players deserved more from us after the game yesterday.... Especially after what was a pretty good atmosphere during the game.
  15. I know the result wasn't what we deserved or wanted yesterday but it wasn't for the lack of effort! So why not stay and applaud your team on the seasons efforts yesterday?
