  1. Fulham have to play ALL of the top 7 still. Whilst I hope you get some extra games at the end of the season I hope to be watching but not caring!!!!
  2. I’m pretty respectful on here tbh. I think sometimes BCFC fans have to change mentality to push their team over the line, my match summaries on here in recent years have been met with agreement about BCFCs plight.
  3. According to most (I still haven’t seen it) it was a handball. However the fact you are still hanging onto this possibly shows you fail to see the handball wasn’t the reason you didn’t get anything out of the game. Concentrating on why you were so piss poor and improving that will stand you in better stead to get into the playoffs, rather than looking back on a poor reffing decision.
  4. Where do we start. From the first 5 minutes my only worry was that we wouldn’t score as our conversion rate is terrible, once Ayling scored it was over. Dominated from start to finish bar an initial 7-10 minute spell when Fammy came on which quickly subsided and we adapted. As is usual when I watch Bristol City I say EXACTLY the same thing. LJ, he clearly doesn’t know his strongest line up, he clearly had no plan how to defend the attacks from out wide. I would expect this from a manager of 3-6 months finding his feet, not someone who has been there years. Your only saving grace was your keeper and our absolute inability to be clinical in the final 3rd (which hopefully will be sorted now our new striker is getting fitter). There is one thing to be outplayed but your players just seemed completely off the pace and lacking commitment. Playing 3 at the back was an absolute waste against one attacker, if anything you need 6 in midfield 2 on Phillips and 2 on Pablo. I have no idea what your fans were like because my voice and many around me were shattered, we couldn’t anyone outside our raucous corner of the ground. Wells is the absolute key to your promotion push, hard to judge you based on today as there wasn’t a lot to see. Wells had that one chance and I believe you should have had a penalty. I don’t think there can be many complaints as it should have been a cricket score by half time. The weather was nowhere near as bad as first feared. Be positive, most of the top 7 still have to play each other so your destiny is still in your hands. I’m less worried now, we’ve had a shocker recently but we’ve also played most of the top sides in the 3rd quarter of the season already.
  5. What does that say? Maybe he didn’t like the way he was shoved out at City for a basement price. Everytime (before today) he’s clapped the City fans when we’ve played home and away (I’ve seen it with my own eyes), maybe he’s just had enough of you nowadays. He does buy fouls at RB, he blocks the ball waits for the smallest of touches and falls on the ball. Surely if the opposition had any intelligence about them they would ensure they stay 1 yard away and not give him the opportunity. He did this the very moment he came here so must have done it for you too. It would infuriate me as an opposition fan however I’d also be angry at my own side for getting too close and giving him the opportunity and not learning during the game. He’s turned into a very decent RB, prone to the old stupid losing of the ball but overall what a bargain You talk about fouls and advantage, it works both ways. Phillips, Dallas and Costa were fouled a fair amount and the ref played advantage, but never came back to issue a card. I hate it when fans think just because someone played for them they should not give it ALL for their new team. He should “check” his emotions when scoring a vital promotion chasing goal, should he ****. Let the lad enjoy playing for a club that wants and appreciates him, coaches and fans. He’s been our player for years now, let go. Maybe he’s kissing his way to the Premier League.
  6. LOADS of those (8) are actually youth players with 0-4 appearances.
  7. Our keeper is so **** he’ll move the goal outside the stadium so you can score. He’s nice like that....
  8. Not had a game postponed in 25 years at Elland Road.
  9. I think next season Ben White will almost certainly be playing PL football and he will get an England look I am sure of it. I am less confident of his ability for England than I am Phillips however.
  10. If we don’t go up we are obviously resigned to losing him. Southgate has come to watch him twice, after his ban he came back against Brentford and ran the show, outrageously impressive talent that 2 years ago we as fans were writing off. Bielsa has given him a job and I personally cannot think of a better midfield man marker in the English game. I look at Henderson / Rice and think Phillips should surely be at least in the squad. I would suspect he will get in the squad next year as he’ll be a Prem player, hopefully with us if not with a top 6 club. Wonderful player who Bielsa has transformed. Yes the coaching team get £6m a year but if we were to sell Phillips that pays it back.
  11. Your absolute best bet (no arrogance attached here) 451 hit on the break. 442 and we’ll just drop Phillips back slightly and you’ll be overrun in midfield. 352 and your wide players won’t get out of their own half. Weather will play a part and our keeper is ****. Not been as concerned about this fixture in the past as I am now.
  12. That game “we” the crowd got the team over the line. Remember it like yesterday we hit the bar in the final minute.
  13. Not looking forward to Saturday at all. Driving my City supporting friend to Elland Rd, he’ll be sat with you guys and I’ll be in the home end. Horrendous weather will stifle any pattern to the game, the manager persists with Kiko the Clown in goal and Barndoor Bamford up front. In terms of the top 6/8. You also need to fa toe in games against each other, for example Fulham have to play ALL 7 of the top 8. We thankfully (including tomorrow) only have yourselves and Fulham left. WBA have a tough month or so as well. I think Millwall are the ones to look out for, their remaining games look very favourable overall and they seem to have developed a style of play which is effective.
  14. Not being specific on who. Just saying, the next team to defeat Leeds WHOEVER that might be, bet on them losing the following match.
  15. If you like betting and want a tip. The next team to beat us (Leeds) bet on them losing their next game. No team has won a game after beating Leeds, in fact I believe it’s 2 draws and the rest defeats, regardless if they are playing someone poor.
