  1. There are no hard games either then? If there are no easy games, then every game must be equally challenging? A nonsense, sir! True, but Luton at home, if that wasn't easy like Sunday morning, then what is? They left their gloves in Luton, never mind laying one on us. It's too easy to say: there are no easy games. I don't suppose Preston found us anything other than easy when beating us 5 nil (ie, some teams beat themselves, with one bad apple undermining the whole team; and some are beaten before they get off the coach, etc). Burnley at their place, 0:4, that was men v boys. Remember, one definition of "easy" is: presenting few difficulties. Think of "easy" like this, and it is not impossible to recall occasions when City have been very easy and comfortable fodder for other sides in this division. Is it not better to say there are very few easy games? Or, better still: some games (Luton at home) are easier than other games (West Brom away), but you only can know this for certain in hindsight.
  2. Lincoln scout polenta? What tobacco factory you talking about, Knighty? Tell me about it. All bloody "geek" to me, mate
  3. Bielsa is an upgrade on Hockaday, perhaps we can agree on that. It might be a coincidence that Leeds are looking as likely to return to the top under the internationally renowned Bielsa as they have with any of their other coaches/managers since dropping out of the top division 16 years ago; or it might not be a coincidence. We can argue that one all year and find no common ground. Is LJ closer to/more of a Bielsa, or a Hockaday? Or smack bang in the middle of the two?
  4. We are trying, honestly, but it's, er, confusing. Sometimes.
  5. I would imagine that for "DNA" no-one we have signed recently would've scored higher than CO'D.
  6. Not wildly unrealistic, no, but it is unrealistic. It is a thought emerging from your imagination, and therefore not reality. You will recall how Weimann started last season, then dried up for months on end. If Weimann had got injured in early September last season, many on here would be saying exactly the same as you are saying about Afobe and this season. As @mozo remreminds us, above. Like so much with football and Bristol City, we just do not know, and are left to make educated or not so educated guesses.
  7. Geoff Dunford's electric milk float has been in the garage, I think - his milk float brings all the gas to the mem
  8. For us to go up from this division, I cannot help thinking we are going to need good fortune - having a dream summer recruitment window, akin to 2014; our key/best players playing 40 plus league games; referees seeing things our way; opposition goalies diving the wrong way during penalty shoot-outs; teams around us unexpectedly losing to relegation certainties; Leeds Utd doing a Devon Loch for the umpteenth season in a row, etc etc - probably more luck than we are ever going to get, in reality
  9. Because Mark Ashton is rubbish. Or because Lee Johnson is. It's one or the other. Hang on while I plough through the reams of stuff on who is responsible and I will get back to you. With the answer. Once and for all. (I think it's Ashton now, though. Probably )
  10. There is a lot of division generally everywhere you look nowadays, away from football. The internet exacerbates it, keeps it going, 24/7. People are more impatient and irritable (source? The Internet!), more dissatisfied, more quickly, more angry and furious, about anything and everything. It's a wonder the crowd are as mild and quietly supportive as they, you could also say.
  11. Well, you are looking forward to this one...
  12. Top half/12, yes. Top 8/third, like last season, with a fit Afobe, should be. Top 6, not looking like it. Top 2, don't be silly!
  13. It's 40 years now, with one valid effort at getting back to the top. One in 40 seasons! That's poor. It's not like we're Burton Albion or Rotherham at this level. That said, SL has built a platform for us at this level now, from which a capable coach, given a bit of luck with injuries, should be able to get us into the play-offs, where we then have a shot at glory.
  14. We expect, at the very least, just a little bit more than might reasonably be expected. And, also, at the very least, just a little bit more, and a little bit better, than what we are right now. Like the vast majority of football fans. And exactly like Lee Johnson, Mark Ashton and Stephen Lansdown.
