    Lets get back to our football

    Lets be honest, we're crap at trying to play long ball football. Our long ball tactics are very poor, ineffective and league two standard stuff. I don't think we have the players to do it well at all, 9/10 times we just give the ball to the opposition and we always seem to look a poor side when we try to play it. We do play some occasional decent football aswell but these last few games we seem to be using the long ball more and more and look worse for it. Our run to December last year when we were forced to play mostly 4-5-1, we easily played our best football and I don't think that was a fluke, reminded me of the 07/08 playoff season under GJ when we brought Adebola in, it negatively affected our football going 4-4-2 and playing more hoofball. Same thing happened on Fammy's return (I guess how do you not play a 5 million pound player?) Honestly think 4-4-2 and hoofball will end in nothing but another defeat at Brentford. Considering Pack's form at the moment he is in deseperate need of help in the middle. I can see LJ possibly matching up to Brentford in a 4-5-1, my only worry is his tactics using it and his team selection. Of which I can only see 3 players filling a R or L CM berth. O'Dowda, Patterson or Walsh (however I'm more likely to spout lady parts than Walsh start) . LJ can't be blamed for Baker's mistake against Sheff Weds but footballing wise he's starting to take us backwards. We have looked fairly average the last few games and our style of play has almost completely evaporated that we spent last season building. We look a shadow of that side right now. A formation change isn't a magic bullet though especially if you don't employ the correct tactics, which is often why the LJ tombola machine fails when things go pear shaped. Ofcourse and most probable I could be talking bollocks here, either way poor tactics coupled with playing a rigid 4-4-2 is stifling and killing us right now. LJ has 2 weeks to sort it out before our next game, can't say based on previous history that I'm not concerned. So, how do you think we stop the rot?

    Bristol City v Sheffield Wednesday Matchday Thread number 12

    Exactly, CM is such an important area of the pitch, it's like the main cog in an engine. Our squad is very light in that position first team wise and we've only added Brownhill to it in at least 3 years, it's no surprise we're struggling there at the moment. (I'd love to but can't consider Walsh as he's doesn't seem in contention for the first team at the moment).

    So Pack is bang out of form the last few games, good job we recruited a CM to cover form and injuries, oh wait.....

    Looking like another awful run we have to endure yet again....

    Good Old Championship

    I agree with WBA, the best side in the league because of their attack, they'll simply out score most teams. There are better teams defensively than them but it's their firepower that will get them an automatic spot I reckon. Otherwise theres probably a dozen teams who are capable of atleast staking a playoff spot simply because there's no other teams bar WBA that stand out.

    Eliasson should have had a FK there but should have fed Diedhiou.

    Absolutely, we may lose but entertainment wise it's been a very good game.

    We're creating plenty of chances but we really need to start taking them.

    Skybet have us at nearly 3-1 to win and a 1-0 win at 11-1 can't say I'm not tempted. Very tough away game but worth a small flutter I think.

    Burnley running unpaid job advert for "steward" role

    Incredibly poor, I'd imagine stewarding costs for the month would equal one weeks wages from one player, if that! I'd understand League Two clubs and lower asking for volunteers, perhaps a few League One clubs but expected much much better of Burnley, dropped an absolute clanger there.

    Bristol City v Sheffield Utd Match Day 7

    Was my thoughts while watching the game, both teams were alot slower than usual, wondered if it was down to both managers tactically. Certainly didn't have our usual zest but that explains it.

    I do find Wilder a bit of a sore loser at times, I'd swear he'd rather grate his ball sack than credit a team that beats his.

    Subs today

    Agree, was happy when Duffy was taken off and was certainly one of their best players. Strange decision. All 3 subs affecting the game which is all you can ask for. Dasilva, hasn't had much of a look in but thought he played well today.
