  1. I was very fortunate to be there, in a buoyant part of what otherwise was a sparse crowd. The assault on Bradford's fragile confidence was relentless from a buccaneering City, brim full of purpose and swagger. We 'mullered' them for 90 minutes and such was the focused manager's dogmatic leadership that JET only got on the pitch after the final whistle. Many of us wanted JET to get five minutes to say farewell, but there was no room for sentiment with Steve Cotterill. Had we been brave and paid out for Maguire and Gayle or Gray the following season may be SC would still
  2. Beckenbauer should be in prison for that penalty tackle in 1975 on Alan Clarke; almost as bent as Thierry Henry and his hand of god against the Irish
  3. Apart from Nigel Pearson staying on for years to come, all I want for Christmas is more of our players to have a first touch. We've been fed a diet of 'couldn't trap a medicine ball' for so long now that 'playing in Toblerone boots' is what we expect to see. Antoine intrigues me, as he has a first touch and tremendous strength on the ball, but his second touch/strike at goal often goes awry, when off his left foot. Nakhi frustrates me as his first touch often fails and diminishes his ability to get a shot away when unable to control the ball in the first place Much as I lo
  4. Rumours are that he is line for a call up by Gareth Southgate. I always rated him and was very upset that the Cheltenham water works display signalled/coincided with his departure. But hats off to Bielsa for making him a better player, and finding a captain inside him too. As a selling club though we have to question the judgement around his value. Arguably he has performed even better than any of our exodus of multi million pound players to the premiership. Who performs better than him now out of Webster, Bobby and Joe? Still at least we have that wondrous season wit
  5. Pat Lam is a high calibre leader of men with a CV packed with hard evidence of success. he was not a hit and hope appointment. hey presto and the bears are top of the table why does our owner not want the same for the club he invested in first, before dreaming up Bristol sport. what reason would make him want to appoint novices with no proven pedigree. the only time we have played truly exciting football has been during Joe Jordan's reign and under Cott's; two strong minded leaders LJ hit the jackpot with Bobby Reids positional switch and got a great tune out of
  6. wolves at home when the mascots had a battle oh and 5-0 away to QPR when Rodney Marsh scored a hat-trick
  7. as sure as night follows day Hughton's organisational skills will prove that a proper manager makes a real difference after all that money on the hardware why install dodgy unproven software. why did we buy Lansbury as what we needed in the window was a half decent left footed player rank amateur management of our club
  8. Who on earth wants to watch Wells unable to trap a ball or hold the line, surely Bell cant be any worse? This current team has no pace, we need speed And play the youngsters and we will find the next Rob Newman
  9. For the oldies amongst us there was once an international defender at Derby and Leicester called David Nish A sumptuous player who played at the highest level, and broke transfer fee records To this day he is one of the few right footed players I have seen to have become successful as a left back. Please Dean get lucky with one of the squad and convert them into a left back. Could Taylor Moore play there? as Mariappa is unlikely to cut it. Or do we have to wait for COD to return. I hope Lansbury is still a natural leftie, because if not our squad is woefully balanced
  10. Can anyone remember the year? early 70's? The police just marched the Blues fans into the east end very early. They stood right behind the goal, with fights kicking off all around the edges, but we never got our 'rightful' places back i think they won 2-0, can't remember if Trevor Francis was playing, when he was 16/17 years old and ridiculously talented it was not a great day for us reds. here's hoping for better times today
  11. Ok i admit i was wrong, didn't think that promoting Holden was the right call, couldn't see us improving on the streaks of previous seasons. But fair play as i cannot praise the coaching staff enough for finding the right positions for key players. At last COD is tearing up a midfield role, Nagj looks so much better further forward and Bakinson looks so silky. We are getting results and showing some nouse when it comes to closing games out. We are not playing well for very long in games but we can string moves together and do just enough to shade a game; This is remar
  12. and that is why we sold one of our best players for diddly squat money sadly
  13. we need a central defender who is more comfortable using his left foot
