  1. Fully expect us to shit gold and rob a result and the cracks to be papered over for another week. Fam to the rescue again maybe.
  2. Fam would have gobbled up those looped crosses but hes useless apparently
  3. You could have 3 creative midfielders in the middle but if we are set up to play in front of teams then we ain't going to put teams on the back foot simple as. Bannan is this team wouldn't make a difference as when we get the ball we don't do anything with it and play it backways and sideways. No-one runs off the ball.
  4. Style. Our style is play in front of a team and hope to break them down and score from a ball from a wide area or pinch a goal from a set piece. The only players that I see run beyond players are Semenyo and even Nagy sometimes. The way we are told to play limits our attacking options because we are always in front of the opposition and never really putting them on the back foot. Take that with the midfielders and forwards we have. Wells doesn't go beyond players and just picks up scraps. Martin has as much movement as a wardrobe but he can link up players running beyond(w
  5. That's what happens when you've got one style and can't change games up. We can go and pinch games like we usually do but when a team comes to do it to us we crumble. Usual stuff, happened under LJ and will happen under Holden too.
  6. Good performance but I must say we did the same under Johnson too. We need that extra outlet in these types of performances. You can't keep letting teams have that amount of the ball and hope to survive. I know we beat them lot across the bridge and can relish in it for a couple weeks before Derby but we've had very similar performances to that in the last 3 or 4 years and we didn't have that plan B when things start crumbling - January and beyond. I'm pleased with tonight but i'm not gunna get carried away, a better team with better attacking options instead of longball could h
  7. QPR team had players running up and down and around him all the time and it gave him plenty of chances per game. Our style doesn't suit him whatsoever. We paid an inflated price for a player that profits from a team's system and that doesn't suit our own. Simple as.
  8. Cant just scapegoat Pato when the rest of the midfield and the team weren't up to standard tonight
  9. Does seem to be better away from home where we have less time on the ball and i think he plays better when he doesn't have much time to think and plays on instinct and one or two touch plays. I think when we are the home side and have to break teams down he is found lacking in the midfield role. I swear every goal he has scored for us has been a first or second time finish. Would be interesting to see I think. Does seem to dawdle a fair bit and run into alleys far too often when we have more of the ball but he played well today.
  10. They will probably say everyone they interviewed wanted too much money for the COVID life we live in nowadays. They'll have their excuses I'm sure.
  11. Well either way, we will be playing much more attractive football under Cook than the previous manager.
  12. Another case of a player who will move on and perform superb elsewhere and us a couple months down the line wondering what happened. Yeah he is a bit one dimensional but if that one dimension can create 12 goals and he is still young enough to improve his game then i'm all for it. I'm sure people had reservations over brownhill and reid for example and look how far they've come. If a winger is consistent week in week out he would not be playing for Bristol City.
  13. 40 goals in 3 seasons, great return. He is our best striker and i'd love him to stay but that might have been a farewell goal today. Don't really have affinities with players in the recent squads we have had but Fam is that player who will always put everything in and this season has come on leaps and bounds in improving his overall play.
  14. Although i'm not particularly pleased at the possibility of the Cowley's taking charge I feel that maybe they could be a good fit for us. They will be hungry to move on and improve, Lansdown will give them time - which he is the type of manager to gradually improve over time. They aren't opposed to playing tricky players like Grant, Smith-Rowe, Pritchard etc that could see some of our other players on the fringes get opportunities. I see us in a similar situation to his time at Lincoln - loyal fanbase that travels well, spurts of good football with some mixed bag performances, some good
  15. Quite enjoying this, both teams moving the ball around fairly fast.
  16. CH and Phil Neville are doing a talk on leadership at my housemates work this week. I'll steal the laptop and tell Hughton to get his arse down AG through the livechat. Wish me luck.
  17. Might just be me but found him a little frustrating in possession today. I think the fact we created more free-flowing chances throughout the game got him into positions to set up our goals today. In most games this season he didn't even have the opportunity to get into good attacking positions with the ball as he would run into blind alleys out wide. His press was fairly good and his final ball was spot on for those three goals but i felt he could have been even better. I always feel like he needs someone close to him within the first couple touches to lay it off just so
  18. We need a manager that is another level above what we with had with LJ. That "particular type of person" line didn't feel me with confidence. Wait and see.
  19. Just runs into the middle of nowhere and hides. And when he does receive the ball he takes three touches and loses it. He usually only scores on a one or a two touch end of an attacking sequence. Need more than that in attacking areas if you wanna push top six i'm afraid.
  20. Pato and JD look okay so far. When was the last time we beat the first man with the cross.
  21. Feels like with all these names its just journos drumming up clicks and throwing names until one sticks. I don't think we can afford Hughton personally. LJ was on what? Maybe 10k a week? Lansdown really has to step up and pay top tier championship manager wage to get our man to take us to the next step.
