  1. Carrots and humus are my Dean Holden.
  2. Why not? (Genuine question, not being facetious)
  3. Not going to dragged into the name calling etc, think it’s a bit pathetic personally, but the preparation point you make is interesting. I’d have really questioned taking the players up to Blackburn the day before and the 24-hour build-up they were treated to. Undoubtedly it sounded ultra professional and inch perfect in theory, but it also sounded quite clinical to me. Would I rather spend the night before the game at home in a comfortable environment and get the coach or, perhaps, even fly up on the morning of the game or go up the previous day and have no real human contact t
  4. Sorry if I've missed this, but an under-the-radar rule change from the EFL means players returning from loan earlier than originally planned - Liam Walsh from Coventry, for example - are now eligible to play for the rest of this campaign. Birmingham City have flagged the rule change because they have three players available again - https://bcfc.com/news/articles/2020/Trio-now-available-to-Blues
  5. No idea why I'm getting involved here, but I can assure you there's no corruption about the BBC Spot's coverage of the Championship.
  6. It's amazing how some people think there's some kind of agenda against Bristol City because they weren't bolded up owing to a formatting error. Trust me, there's no BBC Sport website/app bias against Bristol City... we get much better exposure than most other Championship teams of a similar level!
  7. Conversely, don't forget that nobody has played for three months so I don't think he's going to be alone in being rusty! Actually have a feeling the standard of football when it returns, especially in this heat, could be fairly turgid. But we'll see!
  8. I think Lyle Taylor's big move may well be us.
  9. You'd have to go Louis Carey at right-back, wouldn't you? He played there a lot for us. Probably actually played some of his best football in that position behind Scott Murray. It is funny how right-back has always been a bit of a problem position for us, though, when you consider how many good left-backs we've had...
  10. I do find it bonkers that every time a footballer gets charged/banned/fine for abusing another player (however you want to categorise that abuse) a lengthy thread ensues on OTIB about what is and isn't offensive. The only word we're still missing, as far as I can tell, is "snowflake". It doesn't say much for us/society, does it? Can't we all just agree we should probably be less unpleasant to each other?
  11. I think what people often forget (understandably!) is how good the game had been even at 4-2. Mansfield went in front, only for us to equalise inside 14 seconds and then go ahead. They then came from behind to lead for a second time, having a man sent off and a penalty saved - albeit converted on the rebound - even before the late drama. And it was bottom v fourth in the league too! As daft as this'll sound, if it was a Premier League game it'd probably be regarded as one of the all-time classics in English football.
  12. Don’t think many of these really nail the original post. Every answer is pretty much a player whose decline had already begun prior to leaving. I think Nick Carle is a decent shout for this, though.
  13. I think, personally, people get really muddled looking back at the Danny Wilson era. We were quite a functional, and at times defensive, side in his final season In charge. Our central pair - Burnell and Doherty - seldom crossed the halfway line! We had the golden 11-game winning run - during which something like seven winning goals came in the final 15 minutes - but for much of the campaign we had mid-table form. That spell really papered over a lot of cracks and the fact we lost five of the seven matches that followed it - which in turn saw us sip back into the play-offs - told its
  14. It's intended the play-off semi-finals will still be two-legged and played over the same timeframe as normal. It is really worth stressing, though, that 56 days is absolutely plenty of time and not a huge deal. We've already had one particular period this season when we crammed 12 matches into 49 days. I'm sure there are more extreme runs than that, too.
