  1. Think we’ve played OK, just lacking a bit of sparkle.
  2. Here's some football fan's logic for you: I think Marley is so poor and this is such a stupid selection that I'm actually fairly relaxed about it because he'll probably score and be really lively.
  3. I think that’s an excellent shout re: Sunday. Plonking a proper experienced leader in the middle against a team like Wigan makes a lot of sense.
  4. Clearly a talented boy but needs to learn how to use his body properly. The cameo from Rodri offered a good example - the way he gets his arse into defenders when holding it up, the way he invites the foul when there’s no option near him, the way he always attacks the ball on the front foot, be it running on to it or coming short. I’m sure he’s learning a bucketload at the moment but there’s not enough to his game to warrant starting... yet.
  5. I always find it strange the anger and frustration some fans feel when players aren't given much of a run in the team. Mo Eisa, like Gustav Engval, was a player Lee Johnson signed. I'm sure he was absolutely desperate for him to do well, encouraged and cajoled him and gave him every chance in training to shine. Sometimes it just doesn't work out.
  6. You make some good points, as does @Davefevs. I’ve been watching Bristol City for 20 years, though, and we’ve never had a better crosser of a ball in that time. He hits that impossible channel, that has defenders facing their own goal, over and over again and does it with pace on the ball. As a striker I’d have loved to have played with him, because you know where it’s going. Agree re: Diedhiou too, I think Afobe’s movement and anticipation would’ve been made for it. Imagine Tammy up top with that service?! Tap-in central.
  7. A classic case of needing to concentrate on what a player can do rather than what he can’t. The amount of luxury players we’ve persisted with carrying over the years (Tomlin, Paterson and Palmer instantly spring to mind and that’s just recently) and we’ve got a guy here who literally creates 2/3 proper goalscoring chances EVERY time he plays and he can’t get in the team.
  8. It's a little bit like going out on a jolly in the evening having been off work sick all day. You're not really doing anything wrong as it's in your own time, but it's not the brightest move is it? File under "doesn't really matter, not really done anything wrong but... silly".
  9. I wouldn't disagree with this - I'd love to see Brownhill used further forward/at the tip of a diamond. He's an excellent finisher and a proper athlete.
  10. No, the point is we have no idea.
  11. Yeah, point taken, but I was more making the point that we don’t know the circumstances yet we’ve got people asking the club to help Nathan Baker with his mental health. I mean...
  12. Absolutely. But do you not understand it's a five-second clip of a man smiling while hugging another man, nothing more, nothing less? He could literally be on his way out of the toilet having thrown his guts up there? We have no idea. You're being hysterical.
  13. It is literally a five-second clip. You're being utterly ridiculous here.
