  1. Those that got thrown straight in then got taken out when more senior options were available to us & then sat out or spent time on the bench for a fair while before being put back into first team action. Even Brownhill wasn’t thrown straight in for a consistent run of action from the start, there appears to be a case of players earning LJ’s trust before fully becoming a first team regular & obviously some players will learn faster than others.
  2. I would suggest that everything isn’t about the here & now! Samenyo would of been with the U23’s before his successful loan stint at Newport & will now be training with our first team squad, this will mean he will of got the experience & now know what is expected of him with regards to tactics for next season. Very rarely do we bring any youngsters straight into the first team, they are needed to know exactly what the tactics & their responsibilities are within the team first, Eliasson, Kelly, Morrell, Walsh, Adelakun, Eisa, Moore & O’Dowda etc have all had to learn before being fully exposed to first team. With regards to Samenyo, we were unable to bring a striker in during January & just needed the extra insurance of having the extra body available if we needed it. If Diédhiou had picked up an injury or suspension in the second half of the season, you can bet that people would of complained if we hadn’t recalled Samenyo from his loan. Sometimes the club just can’t do right, no matter what they do.
  3. Which is fine & while I’d love to venture to Ashton Gate on a regular basis but having now fractured my spine twice in the last four years & currently with a damaged rib for the umpteenth time, travel & attending a game is now beyond me so Sky is an option that allows me to keep up with the action on occasion.
  4. Could any of the pundits be any further up West Brom’s chocolate starfish? Nothing about negativity with regards to how we’d do against them with our formation, how we’d struggle to deal with their front three & how our wing backs wouldn’t be allowed to get forward! Well all that changed quickly enough & now at half time it’s LJ’s starfish getting a tongue cleaning. It’s nice to see the pundits being so impartial before the game but then it is little ‘ol Bristol City against the former Premier League giants!
  5. He didn’t say anything in particular, if you watch the incident Brown slightly clips Morelos’ heels, there was very little in it, definitely not something that warranted an elbow to the face. It has long been a part of the game, rightly or wrongly & once someone bites, they will be marked for similar treatment in the future & it’s the way those targeted handle it that will influence things & Morelos hasn’t learnt how to deal with it & it has to be questioned if he ever will. And all this Brown slating, if he plays for your club you’d love him because he does what he has to do to win, plays against you & you hate him because of what he does. Similar to Roy Keane & the likes in their playing days.
  6. It was stated that £7m would put him out of Rangers reach. So who does that leave to sign him?
  7. Just watching the Glasgow derby & the commentator announced that Ryan Kent would probably be available for a transfer in the summer with Liverpool thought to be looking for £7m!! I can only assume that playing in Scotland has obviously done Liverpool a huge favour because after a season spent in Germany & The Championship, where he failed to cut it, could he really be worth £7m? Surely not good enough for The Premier League & surely there wouldn’t be a queue of clubs in The Championship looking to sign him, especially at that price & no one in Scotland will pay that sort of money so where will Liverpool get that sort of money for him? I nearly choked on my lunch when I heard it mentioned.
  8. I would have to put into the mix ‘Super’ Bobby Taylor for the goals he scored in that season & ‘Psycho’ Glenn Humphries because he was just an absolutely 100% committed player from that era. There are many others that could be put forward for discussion, Joe Jordan as it started the craze of the inflatable tooth when it was the in thing to take an obscure blow up item along to the game. Glyn Riley for that Wembley performance & iconic goal celebration. Scott Murray for numerous performances & ‘that’ iconic goal celebration at Cardiff & his subsequent service to the club. Rob Newman, Terry Cooper, Paul Cheesley, Brian Tinnion. I’m sure there is a long list of people who deserve to be given consideration.
  9. @Matt Parsons BCFCSLO For those that are wishing to pay their respects to Batch at the home game against Swansea, I have just had it confirmed from Thalia that it is hers & Amy & Owen’s wishes that the minutes applause take place on the 44th minute. If it is possible to spread the word in whichever way, please do. Respect & thanks to you all.
  10. Ok, so I have visited Batch’s family today & explained the situation, they are actually planning on going to the Swansea game as a family & are going to discuss things over the weekend but they are edging towards keeping the minutes applause for the 44th minute & would prefer this to be done at the Swansea game if possible but I should get a final confirmation over the weekend. I have passed on the messages of condolence from here & they are very humbled by it all & very appreciative. They are all doing as well as can be expected considering the circumstances.
  11. Let me try & discuss with the family & see what they would prefer. At the moment I am giving them their privacy.
  12. Batch was one of my best mates & I was in contact with him daily my last message from him was at 1:45am today & there was no sign of what was to come today I messaged him this morning, as we did daily to say good morning & ask him how his night was & normally I got a reply within half an hour. Not this morning though & as the hours went on, I started fearing for the worst & then my phone went & it was his number calling me!! I said “hey mate, how you doing” & then I heard Thalia’s voice & my heart just sank!! Gutted doesn’t even go close to explaining how I feel & I know everyone says it about someone who has just passed but he truly was one of the good guys!! He phoned me after his visit from Scott & Joe & you could tell he was buzzing & he was so positive & wanted to know if there were any rumours of us signing anyone & how the team was getting on in general & he was talking about us making the playoffs!! I truly never expected this to happen so soon & it’s yet another ‘good guy’ who has been taken way before his time!! Take care, I’ll miss you mate!!
  13. I have just switched my tv on to see a program currently on (started at 8am for an hour), some actor basically is walking through Bristol, the entire city. For those into their history, it looks like quite a good program, the only downside is they just had a bit with that *****. Ferguson!! If you want to watch it on catchup, it’s series 1 episode 3.
  14. Yep, got it, I now have 2 pages with both events available to me.
  15. Is it Cunningham v Conlan at the moment or have I got a different event on? I’ve gone through cricfree. Edit: Don’t worry, I now have both events on.
