  1. Palmer: is a top player. Fans forget we spent a lot of money to bring him in when clubs like Swansea baulked. It's up to the coaches to get the best out of him. He wouldn't even have started today but for Semenyo pulling out. I thought he did excellent considering his lack of game time on loan and testing positive for Covid last week. Massengo: we paid a lot of money for him, he's an International for his age group and came from a top European club. Despite what some on here think, he is going to be a top player for us. He needs game time and again coaching in the right way. Ade
  2. Bentley 7 didn't have a lot to do. Good distribution. Hunt 7 Solid at the back and intelligent going forward. Kalas 7 Tidy and blocked out danger. Mawson 8 Solid as a rock. Read the game and made it look effortless. Rowe 6 Solid. Almost caught out with ball over the top though. Good time management. Vyner 8 His best game for a long while and in midfield too. Snuffed out danger and got his goal. Some good vision with his passing. My MOM. Nagy 7 A lot of tireless running. Neat and tidy on the ball. Palmer 7 Put in a shift. Gave the ball away a bit cheaply at ti
  3. First win in a long time against a hard working Preston. I must say I was impressed by how solid we were at the back. The midfield ran out of steam a bit though which isolated the forwards. I know he was protecting Diedhiou but I would've taken Martin off. I have been one of Holden's critics but credit where credit is due. A good all round performance.
  4. Palmer starts. That's a big plus for me. But both Martin & Diedhiou up top?!? Not sure about that.
  5. I ramble a bit (its an age thang) and casually get to the point when I remember what I have been casually rambling about in the first place, casually.
  6. From the snippets I saw on the BBC they gave a pretty good account of themselves. The sags on the other hand were woeful at the back. Even I could go past that defence and I have piles and a limp.
  7. Well, its only human nature to look for reasons why he does this or that. The fact is he is a very talented footballer and if we are looking at players who will propel this club to the next level then the likes of Kasey Palmer is exactly the sort of exciting player we need playing for Bristol City and not playing for a competitor in the same league. The club have made the investment and commitment and it is up to the coaching staff to now get the best formation in place to suit his undoubted talents. If this continues to fail as in Palmer is in and out of the side or Wells' scoring a
  8. If the precious blue few are worried about having a ***** instead of standing next to a few like on a normal bleak Saturday afternoon I'm sure it can be injected into a 2 inch bung so that they can use it as a suppository.
  9. Ah, that's the "We go again" wonderful coaching set up we have here. You'll need to look at the numerous other threads that are appearing more by the day almost as quickly as we develope more long term injuries
  10. When all of the dust settles and which side of the HNM or KP45 fence you prefer to be, the facts are these players are Bristol City players, we even tried before we bought with Palmer. The point I am making is that Massengo, Nagy, Palmer, Wells & I would include Adelakun because the stats say so, are talented individuals who would grace any team. The CLUB have identified these players and signed them and although the Head Coach is there to discuss these potential signings it is JL & MA & Co who sanction the deals once all of the club's criteria have been met. Therefo
  11. It must be said that we paid the fee for Palmer (not Swansea) so believed in him then. Despite what other posters have said LJ waxed lyrical about him after Brum away last season likening him to "Glenn Hoddleque" with some of his passing. Of course he has to put in the workrate but it's up to the coaching staff to get the formation and system right to get the best out of his undoubted talents. As with all of the recalled loanees the coaching staff need to positively integrate them back in the fold otherwise what's the point. Make no mistake Palmer is a quality player and th
  12. High point: the loan signing of Benik Afobe. A top class forward and, with Palmer & Nagy a real statement that the club means business. I was looking forward to an exciting team with real attacking intent. Low point: the underwhelming appointment of Dean "we go again" Holden. With very little lower league managerial experience and absolutely none at this level. He is pitting his wits and tactical genius against experienced managers and coaches in an extremely competitive league who have played and managed at the highest level. It doesn't bode well.
  13. We dodged a right hiding if you ask me. I am not sure we've heard the last of it. If its Covid symptoms doesn't that also mean isolation?
  14. So let me get this right when we have a chronic injury list; Watkins has returned from Aberdeen (injured) no doubt Sunderland bound at some point. Edwards & Morton have returned from Grimsby (more to do with Holloway losing his job) Janneh is back with the U23 squad but is recovering from an injury. Adelakun prefers to stay at Hull (as is reported) Pring has not been recalled from Portsmouth. Despite our chronic left back shortage. Jonny Smith hasn't been recalled (to the best of my knowledge) Kasey Palmer hasn't been recalled as yet as it seems h
  15. Well yes; in fact its starting to make me question the hierarchy above the Head Coach. It strikes me that they don't want anybody rocking their boat so forget all of the big names as they come with big egos and a price. Makes me want to cry; yes; because the club is collectively moving to the next level in every facet of the club except at Head Coach level where we've really missed the boat. One expects to win lose or draw throughout the season but it is the manner of abject performances and tactical ineptness which is causing a lot of concern. "We go again" can be interpreted a
