  1. You should probably rename the thread... "Which player when sold went to the highest placed and most important club?" It's probably one of those random kids Liverpool have taken from our academy like Herbie Kane.
  2. All depends on how we invest the money. Another big win for the academy which can only help us.
  3. It's not but it definitely works out that way. I don't think LJ is immature enough to do something like that deliberately. Steve can tweet his disappointment again if he likes, but if we had that striker investment in the last year and a half then it's likely we'd have done better. We're so close and it's SLs choice if he wants to gradually increase spending or go for it.
  4. That perfectly highlights the strengths and weaknesses of what the system does. If you wonder why we need runners in midfield. If you wonder why Jack Hunt got exposed when we started with it. If you wonder why Kasey Palmer didn't start, this shows it.
  5. meh i think is the response, which for a club redesign is pretty good!
  6. The innovator of the modern day high tempo pressing game. Lots of people do this nowadays. In many ways even if Lee doesn't know it, he's been massively influenced by Bielsa. Why's Luke Ayling there to head the ball across goal? That's what Bielsa coaches. When the manager consistently gets the teams working hard and attacking, they tend to be liked. When they're successful beyond normal means and history they tend to be revered. He's definitely a manager that asks a lot of his players and they need to buy in real hard for him to be successful.
  7. "That's an easy yellow." but he didn't give it. (unless it was shown off camera) You have a referee seeing a yellow card incident and not enforcing the rules. This is the biggest problem with referees at the moment. They literally do not enforce the laws of the game. This is why we have 10+ minutes of time wasting a game. This is why we have a rugby scrum in the box at every free kick and corner. So this referee is weak, and doesn't do his job properly. He'll fit right in.
  8. I think it was too late in his career, he tailed off massively at Doncaster IIRC then failed at Forest and then failed here. What he did for a decade at Bournemouth and Doncaster was superb, but it's much harder when expectations rise, they start booing you when you're 6th... Edit - I remember at the time I was really hyped for him coming. I thought he would transform us into a fun hard working mid table championship club.
  9. I was all hyped up, first race is so exciting as you don't know where the teams are at with their development. Mercedes 0.7 faster than Ferrari ... Really disappointing. I hope it's not their race pace. I guess we hope there's safety cars and massive tactical errors and rain again to make the races exciting until Ferrari/Red Bull get their act together if it is!
  10. Measurable intangibles. Marginal gains. Statistical analysis. The eye test. DNA. Self scouting. You need to do as much as you can to get signings right and manage the current squad. We seem pretty much on top of things as a club. I know people hate the coach speak and clichés but we're seemingly doing most things right with regards to recruitment. And sometimes no-one wants a goalkeeper and none of your attempted signings work out, and he turns out to be pretty damn good. Sometimes you meet a striker in a hotel in Dubai. Sometimes players play incredibly well for you then as soon as they sign they stop playing.
  11. Apologies misspoke/typed! 2 club promotions in 3 years with two different teams. Maybe I'm just thinking of this year with us!
  12. I think our best player is Kalas. You can't really teach the traits he has. There's a reason he has back to back promotions in this league and our back line is so secure. Webster is a close second. If your criteria is more about who we can't afford to lose it's Brownhill for me. We don't have a remotely close alternative or replacement. Diedhiou would be second in this category.
  13. Didn't we have like 3-4000 attendances for the early rounds of the EFL trophy in the late 90s early 00s? So that would make around 80% of the now normal match day goers "plastics". Unless you weren't born then, then MAYBE you get an excuse? The stupid dick waving of I've been a fan longer and harder than you have is embarrassing. My first game was Chris Garland's testimonial match in 1993. I was an 8 year old Manchester United fan and wanted to see my team play. That's how I began supporting Bristol City. People need to go and watch and become supporters. It won't take everyone, but for some, it's magic. Thousands of £s and 26 years, trips to the Millennium, both Wembleys, Carlisle, Kingstonian, Heybridge and Manchester City later I remember it started with a game where I didn't even come to watch City. People telling newcomers that they're not welcome is hurting our clubs future. They need to remember that when they're claiming to be a supporter of the club.
  14. Massive turnaround. Lessons learned. This could be a defining point in our season.
  15. So can we beat a mid table team at home who are trying only top defend and nick one. HUGE test. Good teams can.
