  1. It is something I think people have to see to grasp. Watched some football over the summer and in the Gold Cup games(North American teams) they did this a lot. It makes the pitch bigger really. If you have any competence playing from the back you can draw in a press to basically where the goal kicks are taken. Also gives defenders that space to receive the ball. They can stand next to the keeper and just have it tapped to them like a kickoff. It will be interesting to see how it progresses over the season but I am sure we will utilise it a bit.
  2. Was a wind up!! New kit looks good with no sponsor. I do not know how to copy tweets and all that but sure someone will
  3. Last line helps your argument. Baker probably should be better than Flint but Flint with determination and will has had a hell of a career and his best years will be remembered as Bristol City ones. I think it was the right time to move him on as his ambition was probably above what we thought we could be last season but idk how anyone can say anything bad about the guy after his time here.
  4. Felt like I could touch the top of his head from where I was sat! Was amazing and never really heard much about it after.
  5. I don’t think Flint lacked pace but lacked acceleration and agility. Meaning I think it took him an extra step or two to get to his top speed and struggled keeping in front of quicker dribblers on that first touch. Never a poor player by any mean but definitely think we have upgraded. I’d rate Webster and Kalas more than Flint but you can say that about most champ CBs. I think going to Boro then Cardiff keeps his reputation in tact. Feeling last summer was he had suitors where this summer feels he needs the move to play more. Can’t begrudge him that. I wish him well unless that mean beating us or keeping us from promotion.
  6. Thought he looked class the pne time I saw him play for the u23s. Was a couple years ago though. Looked smooth on the ball and a good defender just lacked pace
  7. There are reasons Fam signed for us in the championship. He had holes in his game. From his two seasons here you can see the holes in his game being improved. By the time the season ended you could see he was more comfortable holding off defender, holding the ball up under pressure and being the lone striker. He did miss some easy chances. The one at Hull last game of the season will stick with people. There was the stat flying around that he missed 20 clear chances or something like that. Doesn’t take much in those chances to score. He could easily be cooler this season and convert 5-7 more of those. Add in 6 game suspension(and the time to get up to speed) he could easily be a 20 goal scorer. Might be a good thing he didn’t convert last season. Means we can add to that squad while keeping a good striker. If he scores 20 goals he is in the premier league. Yes I think he needs to add a few more goals but he is in the right spots to do so and he does look fitter and sharper this preseason so far. Though I’d argue there are a few others who need to add more goals around him(Brownhill, Paterson, Eliasson and will be looking at Szmodics to add a few). 16 goals from COD, Brownhill, Paterson and Eliasson. These are supposed to be our spark type players. The creative types that can pick a pass or create a goal from nothing. Saw flashes from all of them but if we are looking for more consistency from someone it is one or two of them. Especially the wide players when you look at other wide players across the league. Bowen, Hernandez, El Ghazi and costa and Cavaliero back in the league. They are getting 10+ goals and 5+ assists. Think this is more likely the areas that need goals rather than Fam getting 25. We get 15 from Fam and 10 from Weimann(or Nketiah if he arrives those two would be our primary goal scorers off Fam imo) and another 8+ from one of those mentioned we will be much better off than last season.
  8. In our report of the loan they call him a winger. Not saying anyone is right or wrong just that city have him as a winger!
  9. I just flew back from USA and been up anout 30 hours waiting for this and it ain’t working

    O'Dowda

    If he is interested in resigning now I’d probably be offering him less. Can spin it by saying we were planning to sell because he refused the first and can only afford a lesser amount
  11. I mean there is no room for him. COD has not gone(yet?). We still have Eliasson and Weimann. Those were our main 3 last season. Then we still have Watkins, Adelakun and Paterson. Now in a perfect world you can easily get rid of those salaries but not a perfect world. Then if we sign Nketiah and/or Moore it will mean another 1-2 options behind the central striker. So yea just not sure where he would fit in
  12. It should be there but not to the extent they use it. Been saying for awhile they need to have a challenge system.
  13. Not that easy. It is easier and more economical to move Taylor. Taylor would give us some type of profit FFP wise. Whereas we would take a loss on Watkins most likely. As far as Watkins goes, he can play anywhere in a front 4. Meaning if we go 4231 he can play as the target striker or any of the positions behind that. That said he would seem third choice at best for any of those spots. Striker he’d be behind Fam and Semenyo as target types imo. Could see him on the right as an option back post for crosses but you have Szmodics, Eliasson, Weimann, Paterson, Semenyo, COD, Brownhill and Adelakun as options for those roles too. If we sell Taylor and O’Dowda perhaps he has a part to play but imo he is still taking minutes from Adelakun, Eliasson and Szmodics. Idk seems a long way for Watkins to play a vital role. That said, in the right role, he is a capable player. I won’t write him off like some here. As mentioned above his couple goals were massive ones and he does seem to have a knack for arriving in the box at the right time.
  14. Think football is just too big to really regulate it fairly. Hundreds of teams and thousands of players at a decent professional level. There is a lot of money in it though and you’d guess FIFA could afford a unit to watch over things like this if the rules were put into place. Thing with FIFA(and FAs)though is not the rules. It is the punishment(or lack of) for breaking them.
  15. Think it is inevitable they lose Maupay though. Maybe they look at Webster the same way? Goal scorers tend to move on though. That said they will still have Watkins, Benrahma and Canos most likely. PJ and a striker makes them dangerous. Maybe even playing Watkins centrally. They will be good next season. Finished the season well
