    Marlon Pack

    I agree with @Olé with the exception of the bit about his poor form being the result of improvements around the squad. I think he suffers simply because he desperately needs a rest for a couple of weeks. Injuries to Smith and Walsh mean that isn't possible, but perhaps a brave choice against a team that needed unlocking would have been to rest Pack and play Morrell. I also don't think it helps him that at times the movement in front of him is desperately poor, although that may be a chicken/egg situation with how slow he is to move the ball on at the moment.

    Mick is Ireland manager, so watching O'Dowda or someone I suppose. No idea about Fowler.

    This thread could just be pinned for weekly additions couldn't it?

    Fammy straight down the tunnel

    Could be anything. Maybe he needed to lay a cable

    Yes. I don't agree with the initial lineup but those substitutions were spot on.

    Bristol City v Bolton Wanderers Match Day 27

    I will take a win in any form. Doesn't have to be pretty.

    Bristol City v East Fife March 1953

    It was a friendly. Friendly matches under floodlights were fairly commonplace in the early 50's and it was the popularity of these that led to the FA sanctioning the use of floodlights for competitive matches.

    Stick or twist in January

    The problem with the current transfer/loan system is you need a squad and both Wright and Watkins can cover more than one position. I'd sooner move Baker on than Wright and Watkins depending on who else stays or moves on.

    Ratings v Rotherham

    I agree. Very pedestrian about his play. He is our Captain and our playmaker and he should be leading our team to play with some urgency against a Rotherham side that with 10 or 9 men on the pitch would have been ripped apart by playing with a bit of pace. I cannot decide if he is stifled partly by a lack of movement from other players or if those players are not moving enough because they know the ball is going to be released painfully slowly anyway.

    Ratings v Rotherham

    Adelakun could do with calling the defenders bluff on occasion when being constantly shown the outside, but I guess that depends on how confident he is in delivering a ball left footed. If he can't or won't then he needs to play on the RHS as it's far too predictable to defend against a winger that cuts inside every single time. Diedhiou suffered again from playing mostly with no-one anywhere near him. I think you have to be a particularly physically imposing and/or intelligent forward to play up front alone and (as much as I rate him) he is neither.

    What now!

    Has the game finished?
  12. Chris_Brown

    Please let the snake start today.

    The way you make Diedhiou look worth his fee is by playing someone close to him. I've felt this season that the Diedhiou Weimann combination (when we've played it) hasn't worked because AW drifts too far away from FD. Taylor is the perfect foil for him IMO.

    Is that a euphemism?

    Nathan Baker

    He'll be important to us, I think. With Baker's injury record, Kalas being on loan and Pisano OOC at the end of the season all the qualities you state above will be required.
