  1. Indeed - a rousing chorus of “8 men had a dream” would be really appropriate today. What a hole in my life it would be without this generally underachieving and generally frustrating (but it ccasionally uplifting!) football team and that really could have happened.
  2. Alan Walsh, Brian Tinnion and Scott Murray (for an amazing season and being an all round decent bloke). Oh, and although I never saw him play, John Atyeo who again I understand to have been another good man as well as a great player.
  3. Dasilva’s problem yesterday was that he was left exposed having to cover 2 players and Leeds made the most of that. When O’Dowda came in he was less exposed but LJ left it too long to do something about it as it was pretty obvious. He massively improved once he had that cover in front of him.
  4. Perhaps the difference is that Leeds have a formation and game plan and stick to it? Players know what they are doing and what each of them will do in most given situations?
  5. Ice hockey would be great too - but might be too complex?
  6. I thought it odd the Bristol Post referring to Steve Cotterall as City’s most successful Manager today. Would have suggested they looked up Alan Dicks or Harry Thickett.
  7. Think there must be a recall lined up and I would think it would be Morrell rather than Walsh. Burnley has a population of 88k and its a pretty poor area, whereas Bristol has a population of 540k and must be one of the most economically strong and affluent cities in the country. Shows how well Burnley have been managed and how much we have historically underachieved in reality when our respective positions and attractiveness to players is taken into account.
  8. Not saying he’s the same and indeed I think he has more promise than Lee had, but he’s probably the closest comparison (physique, style etc) of the ones that we have currently got so you’d think Lee would relish to work with and develop him and should be able to get the best out of him. We will see! (Going off topic I think Lee was a better player than he was often given credit for and people seem to remember and I wonder what would have happened if he’d stayed fit throughout the play off season).
  9. Ironically, is Walsh perhaps the closest of our current midfielders to what Lee was like himself as a player?
  10. Was he? Where was he going?
  11. Think people are being a bit harsh. He wasn’t great but I do seem to remember a couple of defence splitting passes that he put through which could easily have been goals (and would have been had say Adobe been playing). At least it brought something different into the game and a bit of penetration that had been sadly missing all game.
  12. Yes, sadly AG is one of the most difficult and most expensive to get to for me.
  13. YorksRed


    Yes - his defensive work is overlooked. He seems to get more than his fair share of headers back there and gives us additional height and physicality.
  14. Yes. Tonight’s is on but I don’t think Wigan is as it’s not on Sky’s televised list.
