  1. Obviously our form since January has been discussed over and over however I just had a thought could our cup exit and media coverage during this period have affected the players the most? During December and January we were on the tele virtually every week, with the players playing not only in front of the live crowd but also millions at home, meaning they were surely bound to give that little bit extra as it would get people talking about not only Bristol city but also them as individuals. One particular player I'd like to talk about is Jamie Paterson, seemingly unplayable at Sheff Utd, Middlesbrough at home and Man Utd and Man city away (this fixture was even post injury). Yes I understand he was playing in a more central position during these fixtures but it's not only his interest that seems to have dropped but just the overall quality of his play (also know he's been ill of late, so why does he play if not 100%?). Also thinking back to the start of the season when we played Villa at home on tv, he played out wide and was MOTM...tv cameras influencing this? What im trying to get at is maybe our star men thought that if they'd put in excellent performances over the period where we were on tv, then the club/another club may have come in with a better deal for them. This didn't happened and may have disheartened the players leading to poorer performances. Just a thought.

    Final Points Tally Using Statistics!

    Just shows what an exciting and unpredictable league the championship is where anyone can beat anyone! so hard to predict how many points will be needed, guess we'll find out when 46 games are up!

    Why was Cunningham not sent off...?

    Seemed like he did it as an 'don't worry mate sorry you didn't get your penalty and you're gonna lose this one' hair ruffle which in the heat of the moment I can see why Flint was furious. Cunningham was just winding him up, can't see any retrospective action. Funny because I reckon if it was another one of their players we'd be fuming at them but probably get over it after a while but because it was cunningham it makes it a lot worse, because, for a player who I though that was decent for us when called upon, I have lost all respect for him.

    Think Williams was sent off once for 2 bookings in a 1-0 away loss at Crewe I think unless I've got that completely wrong?

    Bryan .....

    Think he is a fantastic player personally however it seems that once or twice a game he does something a bit too casually and pays the price, needs to keep his concentration throughout the whole 90. Gets away with it when he's playing left midfield however at left back it's easier to notice and easier to be punished for it.

    Didn't even look up for it when he came on, weak in the tackle, poor touch...a loan move that hasn't worked out might be an understatement...shame because when he played against Derby at home earlier in the season I thought he might have been decent for us

    Gary O'Neil

    Experienced however last season I felt he was a little slow off the mark and a little leggy, I doubt he'll have fixed that now having just come back from injury and he hasn't made the bench yet so doubt he'd be ready to start...would rather see Brownhill moved infield and Eliasson given a go (who still probably isn't ready but Pato looks like he's having a rough spell).

    Blame the ref...

    Clear dive by their bloke when you see it on the reply to win the free kick for their second...

    Poor service or not getting into goal scoring positions? Hasn't shown any goal scoring instinct at all

    Assistant Referees

    Yeah you'd think so wouldn't you, is a bit odd but apparently the right call was made

    Assistant Referees

    They had Dermot Gallagher on after clearing up the offside laws saying it was the right decision because Lovren played the ball apparently it wasn't offside...I thought it was offside too at first to be honest. Second one is down to opinion, for me he has kneed him in the back even if he has gone down maybe a little easily, im just impressed that the linesman was confident enough to make the decision, unlike the linesman on Friday with bobbys pen like @Vincent Vega said.

    Assistant Referees

    Fantastic example of how an assistant referee helped the referee in the Liverpool vs Tottenham game today to come to a correct decision in such a high pressure situation. I feel that in many cases these days in football the 'linesman' may be scared to overrule a referee, for me if these officials made stronger decisions like the ones today then the need for VAR to be introduced may be lessened , as I for one would much prefer for the decisions in football to continue to be made by humans as it's what makes the game so enthralling whether decisions are right or wrong and it's much faster than the VAR system.

    Baker - Red Card

    Exactly this. When Batth got sent off for Wolves against us he played the ball first, doesn't mean the challenge isn't worthy of a red card unfortunately.
