  1. Apologies if this has been said already. DH seems like the kind of manager who, to use an old cliche, you’d ‘run through a brick wall’ for, but low and behold you get on the wrong side of him! COYR.
  2. How many of Barnsley’s ‘deadline day 2’ signing’s were completed before 12 noon, and therefore registered to play against us? I think it was only Herbie Kane. COYR.
  3. Just wondered. Does anyone think that Giggs would pick Bakinson over Morrell, if Bakinson qualified to play for Wales? COYR.
  4. Can we get a shaking head emoji on here please. I’d like use them for posts like this! COYR.
  5. I don’t doubt that for one minute, but I’m sure he is more than capable of playing a holding role too. COYR.
  6. I’m fairly sure Brunt was signed for his experience and versatility (remember he can slot in at LB/LWB too). Like when we signed Rowe. I’d also have Williams in the ‘holding’ category and Morrell in the ‘box-to-box’ category. I think Nagy & Massengo could even fit into the ‘harriers’ category, but am not sure Brunt is a ‘playmaker’, certainly not these days. COYR.
  7. Listened to tonights episode, hadn’t listened before (long time OSIB listener). I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. I now have 2 great Bristol City podcasts to listen to. COYR.
  8. Congratulations to Taylor Moore, well deserved in my view! I would be surprised if Taylor Moore is not our skipper before the end of this new contract period. He seems to have all the right attributes. COYR.
  9. TBH I’d rather see us get those players on new contracts (including Fam), than sign anyone else in what’s left of this this transfer window! Further injuries not withstanding. COYR.
  10. Cidered Abroad, what you’ve failed to notice, or take into account, is that my OP was done on 8th September 2020. Sorry, but my crystal ball was at the cleaners that day, otherwise I would have known what a huge impact Bakinson would have on the start of our season Hindsight is a beautiful thing! One thing I’m sure we can agree on now, is that Tyreeq Bakinson is a super talented player with huge potential. COYR.
  11. We better start getting some new contracts signed soon! COYR.
  12. I don't disagree that wing-backs, in a 3 at the back formation, are intergral to its success or failure. I do strongly believe that almost as important, maybe more so even, is having 2 wide centre-backs that are comfortable going in the full back area (out wide). If they can play, or have played, full-back as well, then even better. Ideally they would be reasonably pacey too (a typical full-back attribute). I have to admit, I've always liked the 3 at the back formation, however you lay it out - 3-5-2, 3-4-1-2, 3-4-2-1, 3-4-3, or 3-2-3-2 (although I don't think I've ever seen this one in a
  13. I’ve gotta admit I’ve not seen Walshy’s heat maps, or average position maps. My judgement is purely based on what I’ve read and saw on TV last season. I’m quite excited to see if what he do. Always thought he would work better in a midfield 3. Just frazzled my brain thinking about all the ‘midfield 3’ combinations DH could select, depending on the opposition. Choosing from, when all fit, and still at the club (not sold or out on loan): Bakinson, Brunt, COD, Eliasson, Massengo, Morrell, Morton, Nagy, Palmer, Pato, Rowe, Walsh, Williams. I think League 1 loans for Bakinson
  14. That must be the list of players that simply weren't good enough, at least at this stage of their careers they aren't. Who knows what might happen to them in the next 2 or 3 years (crystal ball anyone?). Certainly no names on there to whinge about, I wouldn't have thought. COYR.
  15. Just wondered. If you pay £10 for the 'pass' for the match on Saturday, and cannot watch it, due to the Robins TV app (or number of people trying to log on) crashing or being unable to load. Are you entitled to get a refund, or will they say it'll be valid for the next match instead? COYR.
