  1. "Hoddlesque" was how LJ described him in one post match interview and being a midfielder by trade that is high praise indeed and warranted. He is highly talented in my opinion and that speed of thought in seeing a pass that early is truly a gift. I can think of two games that comes to mind where he has made such an impact [and I'm sure there are others] Brum away with that slide rule pass for Tommy Rowe's goal won us that point and that nonchalant instant cross for Josh Brownhill's Charlton winner won us the three points there. As with COD he needs that coaching on ball retention to get to the required level of consistency but that will come and like COD he has skill in abundance. He is also a thoroughly likeable bloke. One can only speculate where we would be now if we had both KP45 and Benik Afobe in the same side. We are very lucky to have such a talent in our squad and I know there will always be some sort of debate with some on the whys and wherefores of so called "gifted" players but in my view its players like Kasey you want to see perform week in and week out.
  2. It's a strange thing but almost by default LJ has arrived at his best midfield combination and that is Natch and Massengo in the middle and Brownhill out wide. As good a player as Brownhill undoubtedly is our Hungarian cider maestro and French wonderkid are a level above and barring fatigue should be the way forward from now on. I know they tired today but they will only get better and with Korey gradually getting match fit we should expect to see a marked improvement in the middle. I actually think we get the best out of Josh in that position. Long may it continue.

    Wow, THREE league defeats all season as we near December. Season on Season improvement on League position. Currently 7th in the League. Not bad considering the injuries to key personnel and that includes our main striker Benik Afobe who would have made a massive difference. Higher attendances. But of course you're right, with stats like that he's rubbish, get rid of the Head Coach and with it you'd have to get rid of the rest of the coaching staff as they are a team of coaches and of course Mark Ashton will have to go as well as they all work together. The phrase I'm thinking of right now is "get a grip"

    Jacki

    I don't get some people. Football is an entertainment business. A sport we all talk about. Players such as Jacki, Lee Trundle, JET & to a lesser extent Lee Tomlin we were very lucky to have them play for us. They should be revered. Some of my best memories of watching Bristol City involved these players. Yes they may not have fitted in completely with everyone's idea of a team player but they had talent in abundance whether it is Trunds cutting inside and curling one in or JET's walking penalties or Tomlin flicking the ball over a defender before volleying in or Jacki's mesmeric skills with the ball. In my opinion Trunds more than paid for his transfer fee with his goals in that 2008 season. With Tomlin no one could argue with his talents on the pitch when he was on his game. Watching clips of JET and you realise what an amazingly gifted and talented footballer he was. The way he would waltz past defenders and the lethal shot. His penalty taking took laid back to another level and I've seen someone on TV copying that style recently. I stand corrected but I think his time with us was his most successful. Jacki was just too good for the rest of team around him with the exception of Andy Cole. My memory is a little hazy but I do believe Osman preferred a more workmanlike approach & saw to it that his time here was cut short. When you think of both players its fair to say that I know which of them is held in high regard. Its players like these that put "bums on seats"
  5. 2 stands aplenty [well half on one side and a cricket pavilion on the other] ONE WATNEY CUP
  6. If you have to watch that tripe every week you'd like wearing a jester's outfit, with an ex player's name who's never played for you on your back as in Windyass, have six fingers, have more toes than teeth, either headbutt or lick windows and be desperate to be loved by all other football fans.
  7. They must be starting to 5hit their pants by now & not because the pot they pi55 in will have to be sold but with the replay starting in a few hours and everyone wanting them to be defeated.
  8. Don't forget the following week will be cockman's caravan "oi loike to pitch it up anywhere oi can do some tarmacking."
  9. Ah yes, where you can racially abuse the opposition unopposed and then slink away into the background undetected by the club.
  10. There is no denying that eight promotions is a remarkable achievement but its his irritating demeanour, his utter disrespect for the officials before, during and after the match. His lack of respect and patronising attitude. His brand of negative anti football & yes it may all be a show for the media but he has a way twisting it just a little further. We'll need a strong ref for this one He hasn't trained all week He's only young, I managed against his father don't you know The ref gave us nothing today We should've had at least two pens today That was an absolute disgrace, the linesman had a shocker That was a stonewall penalty and so on and so on . . . I am sure there are better examples and so predictable like the pantomime dame that he is.
  11. The height of his ranting must have been when he was at the stripey nigels with that strange orange chairman. I can still see him dancing around on the touchline with his hands cupped to his eyeballs. We have history going back to 2008 & the play offs with that clown and considering all of the patronising jibes directed to LJ it must still rankle with Widow Twanky. He couldn't even be gracious in defeat not even for one last time on Sunday so I am glad that he started his sojourn with the taffs beating us & we finish his career off with a whimper. He may be a nice bloke away from football but he was a complete and utter bell end in it especially with the type of ante football he liked to play.
  12. Tommy Rowe. He is proving to be the best signing made looking at the current squad and the value he brings to the team. I wouldn't argue against Basso though. I remember getting late to the County Ground dump when it was announced Steve Phillips was dropped in favour of a Brazilian goalkeeper. Up until that point there had arguably never been a good Brazilian keeper, it was a bit of a paradox until Basso came along.
  13. I thought he was great against Cardiff. We need players who can take the game to the opposition & COD is a player who can do that. He has been in recent times asked to play and cover in a variety of positions because of the injuries we have and I think this is lost on some fans who seem to expect him to be dribbling past defenders all of the time. I think with our current injury situation starting to ease it will help him getting back to playing in a position more suitable to his strengths.
  14. Obviously if you like your team filled with "triffic" six foot plus tall players when a corner or a long throw in is considered champagne football coupled with frankly baffling tactics and confusing anecdotes ad ramblings about Neymarrrr then obviously you don't like football then this was the program for you. I gave it a wide birth.
  15. I think he's proved that you need to have a word with this window licker's carer not dealer. That is some twilight third dimension he's living in and the surprising thing is that they actually believe they are bigger. Of course its not about how many League Championships, Premier Leagues, F A Cups, League Cups or how many times you have appeared in the Champions League, Europa League, UEFA Cup or Cup Winners Cup. What we should be asking [& I'm sure this is what this specimen of basket case has based his gaslogic on] is HAVE ANY OF THOSE TEAMS WON THE WATNEY CUP
