  1. When the fun stops, stop. Supporting Danny Simpson, isn't fun for me. I won't get entertainment from cheering on a convicted abuser. Therefore there's no point in me investing time and money and emotional capital into an entertainment company that no longer entertains. I will not be following City anymore.
  2. I support Bristol City, I think it's best for Bristol City to be the dominant force in as big a catchment area as possible. I don't want them to go out of business though at the extreme, the loyal and true blue few 3000 and the millions locked out shouldn't have to have their club disappear. I get my enjoyment from chasing the dream of winning it all as a club. So I'm pro Bristol City up to the point where it becomes insanely unethical. Cheating FFP, or employing violent scumbags etc. But some fans want to have a good time through the matchday experience/atmosphere as the priority. Our last league game was when Phillips saved the penalty for the 1-1, and they went down eventually. I was there for that. INCREDIBLE. 20 years nearly IIRC, early April right?. But I want to chase the more incredible moment of what Leicester City had as a bigger priority. And what I think gets us there and keeps us there, is being the one (big) team in Bristol.
  3. Maybe will view my interpretation as uncharitable but We prepared properly They Are Who We Thought They Were (and we let them off the hook) Individual mistakes, no excuses. Planning for next chapter. So essentially, he's understood that the players are not good enough, he's decided that we're ambitious enough and has the resources to change that, and that he wants to be a part of that. So can he find talent, or can he find someone who can find talent? That's the crucial part. Keeps coming back to recruitment IMO.
  4. It's only complementary in light and not dye.
  5. We have a nice bunch of lads, so what if we change he stadium colour to a friendlier colour? Yellow is the friendliest colour! Who's top of the league? It's no coincidence! Who is second? Just saying...
  6. I mean he seems very aware and not so desperate. So unless it's all a bunch of lies from him or Pearson, it's Med Team or pure bad luck! Caus if everything is right, and it still goes wrong, you can't blame anyone, you just got to deal with it, and that's hard.
  7. 1. Outlets to move the ball up the field. Which of the players wingers, strikers, 10s etc can receive the ball and hold it long enough to allow people to move to support them. Who is a threat in behind? 2. Lack of mobility/quality in central midfield. These players have to have the ability and desire to get forwards and create passing opportunities both as goal threats and as options to receive the ball. 3. Who has the quality to beat a player straight up? Semenyo sometimes. Where are the difference makers against a team that sits in. It's hard, but we don't really have them. We need space and counter attacking opportunities to do well. Since LJ became afraid after burning his players out with the high press, we're so slow and insipid.
  8. Trying to think of academy players, who played a reasonable amount at a young age 19 ish, who I didn't think had any special qualities. Joe Burnell. There we go, that's the proof then. Your need to make things up is funny. You can just disagree. Why would I care where they're from? What incentive are you making up for me to do so? How much do they cost, how much do they offer, do they have traits that I think are worth investing in. That's it. No agenda,
  9. Ryan Giles who tormented us when he was on loan at Shrewsbury vs Hunt is SCARY! he was able to run around Pereira, so very scared for Hunt. Surprised no Olusunde for the O'Dowda match up. Don't really watch them enough to have huge opinions on what they're doing. For us, Walsh and Massengo I think has the same issues Lansbury and Massengo does in that it lacks physicality in midfield. Up to them to show the quality to bypass that. I know he's coming back to fitness, but Walsh hasn't shown much in his sub appearances. It's be great to see him show some of that Coventry form today! Or just a few signs he's getting there. but nice to see that he's not a risk from injury so can start games again. COYR. Whoever is out there, let's win this!
  10. Ok, so to answer the q. Birmingham I rarely watch because they're not fun. And they're not good. and I don't support them , so I have a choice, I found it very hard to judge individual performances against them in the game. Everyone looked good, Watkins looked pacey, Palmer was able to go away/stay away enough from a player for his goal, same for Wells, I don't think that's normal. So while Massengo was good, Lansbury was fine too. Do you think if we had any other midfielder playing that would have changed anything? What did Massengo uniquely bring to the game that anyone else couldn't have? Blackburn showed me a couple of things through observation. Rothwell, who I've not really paid attention to before, gives a direct comparison on the field about what top level athleticism is in that position in this league. I think there's a clear difference. Holtby was really good with movement and showing for the ball. These are older experienced players, but that's the competition level. Were they good enough to completely break us down, no, but they were much closer than we were with our 26% possession. I thought Massengo was fine in his role, but those two players showed high levels in different aspects which I think really can affect a game. No, they're not perfect. Massengo showed good tactical discipline, didn't look out of place compared to anyone else. Didn't feel like a good team performance to me. Was he a real difference maker in that game either? Well maybe, maybe he is the most tactically disciplined midfielder we have. But you know who does that job for Wales and wouldn't have cost us £2.5m+ obviously as his biggest fan You currently have us trying to offload Nagy for next season, I'm fine with that, but i think Nagy now, is a better player. He to me has shown more performances which make a difference. Do you think Massengo is better now? Or is it just his age and hope? Do you think we need to upgrade our central midfield area? I think Williams is a good level championship player, I have questions over his fitness, but I have questions over everyone elses suitability as it stands.
  11. I think, because even when we've been bad under Pearson we're organised and motivated, and if we're organised and motivated, we should have the quality to beat Rotherham. Barring individuals making horrific errors. The baseline performances under Pearson allows me to be at least optimistic going into a game.
  12. Genuinely, to make sure there's understanding. Do you understand that the point about the results when he plays is related to a specific comment and not about my views on his ability? Because when you say "you've got something to hang your evaluation on", and "you can point to team results as a form of evidence" that's telling me you don't get the two are unrelated. I've posted I think 3-4 times that they're separate. Multiple ways.
  13. Good (very early) morning Ostriches! Once you wake up, get your head out the sand it's matchday! Rotherham... For those who don't know have had another outbreak of Covid in the squad so before Tuesday had a two week gap in fixture so how much does form mean in this situation? They have an extra days rest on us, but like maybe half of them had Covid, so does that matter either? It didn't matter when we had an extra day vs Barnsley. So we don't get to complain or use it as an excuse IMO. their manager Paul Warne will be missing the game. The first game we played against them this season was a sign of things to come. The first time? I think that's when the Honest Dean Holden moniker died for good. They're good at set pieces (7th highest amount of goals). Using the horrendously unfair tactic of stacking their players, then running in different directions to confuse our poor brave honest lads! We're bad at defending them as we've the worst record of goals conceded from set pieces! But they're weak there too as they're in 3rd. We've been celebrating corners and shots this year, so it's no surprise we're 23rd at scoring from set pieces! This is a game where it's important for each player and the team collectively to show they have the individual quality to beat a bottom team at home. I expect them to have a bit more spirit than Birmingham, if not more quality. I want people to show why they're good enough for next year. And there's no way we lose 6 times in a row at home! ... ? ... Kinda expect some changes. O'Dowda did the press conference and he's been very good against these low level teams. Also in central midfield we maybe have some competition with potentially Massengo, Lansbury, Walsh, Bakinson, Nagy and Vyner to pick from coming off a game where we had 26% possession. Does Fam get rested (dropped)? COYR!
  14. I just find it weird that people spend so much time making stuff up about me! As long as this is the only way you imagine me I guess it's ok!
