  1. Tammy Abraham set to play for Nigeria

    Isn't this exactly why Taylor Moore left France? It doesn't bother me too much. It would be better if you played where you were born or if there was a cut off age where if you moved to a country after a certain age you were from that country. Leko an example, lived here since what? 8? Or have the FA sign off on it.
  2. Leeds, Wolves, Cardiff?

    Leeds my pick to win it. They'll be tough. We'll see what the wolves foreign stars are made of in the winter months. They do look a strong side. Don't read too much into the money they've spent. 20m on young players is nothing. FFP is over 3 years. Play them for 2 years and sell them for at least what you bought them for. After those two, I'm not sure who will be in the mix. I didn't think Huddersfield would keep their form up all season so Cardiff could. Gritty defensively and a top striker. We look strong and I'd be happy if we finished where we are but I'd still say we are more likely to be around 12th. I'm not convinced by Norwich, Villa and Sunderland I think are for sure more likely to be related than promoted. Boro will be at least a playoff side. Such an open season I think. It would be a good year to push for playoffs as I don't think anyone is as good as Newcastle or Brighton last season.
  3. Next 5 League Games

    Need the home wins and a point in one of the away games. I'd be happy with that. The home games massive though as they'll be bottom 6 sides. Have to take max points from games like that if we want to be serious top 10 contenders. Get those 2 wins and we're all very happy if we steal another away win.
  4. Up to 8 points from 12 against all teams you'd think would be top half teams. I'm not complaining. If we are going to be serious playoff contenders(and that's got to be in their minds a bit) we need to take the 3 points on Tuesday night. It takes pressure off the Saturday game at Ipswich if we do.
  5. Young team, busy couple of weeks and away to a capable team. At Reading they grew into the game. Hopefully a case of similar today. Good to see us keeping it 0-0 and make a couple adjustments HT.
  6. Bristol City on FIFA 18 (Merged)

    Perfect mate thanks. Like I said, a look on sofifa and the changes made to our players individual ratings looked pretty spot on. No two people will ever agree on everything though. If you could indulge me again though, as a data editor, were you encouraged to make changes less often? How is it monitored to not go crazy? For example, how would you be encouraged to rate Bobby Reid's form? Leading scorer after 8 games, one would be tempted to put his finishing into the low 70s say. How gradual do changes need to be made?
  7. Bristol City on FIFA 18 (Merged)

    I use sofifa and looking at that, it shows what's been upgraded and downgraded since the last game and it's pretty spot on imo. Of course I agree about Baker and Wright being a bit too low and Hegeler being a bit too high. Also, Bobby if he keeps it up will slowly be upgraded but they tend not to get too carried away with early form.

    How do they rate them mate? Based on stats or you physically watching them and giving an opinion? I wouldn't blame whoever does ours as I think FIFA just puts less into the game for a second division than they would anyone else. The championship especially I think could use more work from them. Leko, Paterson and Baker in particular are quite poor imo for example. I don't know how they would've gotten their data to rate them how they've done. I'm not saying they're gold standard players but Pato and Baker could use another 1-2 on their overall. I know Leko hasn't played much senior football but it's clear his dribbling, physical and passing are more than what FIFA presents just watching him a couple times.
  9. Bristol City on FIFA 18 (Merged)

    Those ratings are a travesty imo but it's FIFA and they don't care about second divisions unless you're Villa or Newcastle.
  10. Palace at Home

    Think we made more changes then Stoke did tbf. Steele, Vyner, Hegeler, Mags, Eliasson, O'Dowda and Taylor all started but don't have a huge amount of minutes between them. Think it's what exciting about our squad. There isn't much between 1-20 talent wise. Just different levels of experience and most are young and getting better.
  11. Palace at Home

    They've got winnable games at Newcastle and at home to West Ham to worry about either side of us. I hope we advance but as long as we do well in the league then I'm not too fussed. Like these games to get some minutes for others who've done well with their minutes.
  12. The use of Flint at GK's....

    This started at Reading away. It was mentioned after the game by a few. It's an interesting tactic but I've not seen it come to anything. There must be a reason for it. Think on the day of Reading it was assumed with Flint flicking it on, it sets up our press to start deeper in their half whereas would be around halfway line on a normal GK. Another reason was that they tend to be 50/50 balls. With Flint there a better chance of pinning them deep.
  13. Our leaky, porous defence.....

    I just mean those 3 in general. They've been the CBs who've played the most. I can't recall all the goals we've conceded in the league but I think wolves were the exception. A lot more quality on that team than most we will face. I think we are better than many teams but there are a few with good wingers and strikers that we(and most) will stuggle to keep out. Boro, Wolves and Leeds we will struggle against as they have pacy tricky wingers and get crosses into good strikers. Don't think many other teams have that combo. Funnily enough we could be a team like that in the near future but think we prefer carving out more clear cut chances through the middle. Other than teams like the ones I mentioned, I think games we lose will be similar to Birmingham where they're limited to longer shots but s couple find the corners. We won't be the best defense but if we can hover between 10-14, we won't be in a relegation battle and if we continue to tighten it up and break the top 10 we'll have a chance at playoffs because I think we'll always create chances to score.
  14. Bristol City on FIFA 18 (Merged)

    Reid will be. Bryan is quite fairly rated. It's not the same anymore with the new game. They update every week nowadays and I imagine most will be very similar to their FIFA 17 ratings. Only the best of seasons will get a championship player a decent upgrade.
  15. Our leaky, porous defence.....

    Well for me it isn't too much a worry. Many seem to be long shots because we clear most crosses now with Flint, Baker and Wright. The only space they're finding is 25-30 yards out and a lot of saves I've seen FF make this season have been pretty routine meaning he should've saved them. We are harder to find space against in the box. Derby found some just outside the box Saturday which worried me a bit but think every shot they took from that area was blocked. We play quite open so teams will score against us but we just feel so much stronger defensively this season.
