  1. Brentford are reason to keep believing. To remain hopeful. And to shout down all the "we can't compete!" softies that explain and excuse so much waste and error and cock up by our own club. I hope they go up. If they only make the play-offs, again, the same applies.
  2. No "yeah, but" or "Chris Hughton, " or "it doesn't work like that mate." Lee. Or Jamie. Which one?
  3. Was it first class, or second? I bet it was bloody second, typical City....
  4. What disarray? We're 11th in the Championship. And what is "clearly wrong" with our club? Getting humped by Brentford?? Explain yerself a bit more.... The SO'D era was worse. Even if he was beginning to turn it around.... What disarray? We're 11th in the Championship. And what is "clearly wrong" with our club? Getting humped by Brentford?? Explain yerself a bit more....

  5. I bet they argue long into the night, don't they Dave?
  6. And what was your judgement of Steve on that one?
  7. I am in the Remain camp. Keep Lee until the end of the season. And let him go mad in January. Then, in May, when we finish 20th, escaping relegation on the last day, we - the forum - shall not cease from explanations, and the end of all our explanations will be to arrive where we started in February '16 and Steve shall know his head coach for the first time. I bet they don't have stuff like this on that Rovers gas shat
  8. The next individual error?
  9. After Blackburn Lee said we have to be "world class at the basics," and I thought that Jack fell short of that this afternoon
  10. Looks like 5 thousand to me. Including the bird in the red bobble hat
  11. I don't know about that, mate. Williams is getting some pelters this evening. Bentley is being questioned. Hunt was given all sorts at the game. Kalas has been criticised recently. Fam is always picked apart. Like Pack before him. Only one bloke is responsible for the group, though, and that ain't Williams, or Bentley, or Hunt/Kalas/Pack. As for when we are flying, well, I remember all sorts of praise for LJ two years ago, for example, his switching of Reid from an attacking midfielder to a fox-in-the-box-entries + high press + everything else. And for Webster, another example. As well as steering us to 8th and four seasons on the up.
  12. Yes, we won that remaining 75 minutes 0:2, and without any rainbow flicks either
  13. He's doing a good job. Early days still but fair play to him. Well done. It's such a shame we are never in the market for fellas like him (no offence to LJ, but we do seem to need .... a bit of something, can't quite put me finger on it), and that they are out of our league. Oh well, still plenty of time left this season. We go again!
  14. And how, on 10k crowds, in a dilapidated old ground, have they managed to do that?
  15. What a football manager, or head coach, does is create, provide, foster, organise and oversee and maintain an environment in which the staff he is responsible for - the players, firstly - and whom he has recruited and selected for their suitability for his club and the task in hand, can perform to their potential on a consistent basis. He also is there to provide answers and solutions when problems and obstacles - even crises - arise. When things are going well, his task is not to get in their way (ie Ranieri at Leicester). It is unfair to judge a manager or coach on one off occasions such as the errors of Williams and others today. A manager of coach should be judged over the longer term, a season perhaps, four years certainly. If people are still looking to apportion blame to individual players four years into a football manager /coach's stint, I would politely suggest they are missing something. Something important. If Lee is pointing the finger anywhere but himself, he is missing something important too. Big four or five months coming now for LJ.
  16. Between the goals they scored, particularly the second and third, yes we did!
  17. "Between their second goal and third goal, I thought we were unbelievable."
  18. Russ had lovely, lustrous hair, I remember. Very well conditioned. I doubt we have seen better hair on a City manager/coach before or since.
  19. Yes, indeed. I reckon many of the prim, priggish fusspots on here doth protest a bit too much
  20. Your thread title "Never happy" refers to how some feel but you then go on to make the very typical bloke error of then using logic, reason, context, perspective, and facts to .... well, to do what? Change how they feel? Someone (a bird, and not on here) once said: "We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are." And this applies to Bristol City and most of us: generally, we see Bristol City as we are, and yes, some folks are "never happy" and they bring that unfortunate condition to this forum. We see Bristol City through the lens of our own minds and personalities. Some are "never happy," some are "happy clappy," some angry, some hopeful, some pessimistic. Some jocular. And some are @Robbored/odd. Some are relentlessly negative on here, and yes, it is draining and tiresome but many that relentlessly tangle with them on here choose to relentlessly read their predictable miserabilism when they could choose to ignore or block it. Why so? There are many prim, prissy forum prefects on here rushing about the place, fussing and fighting and countering all the negativity, frequently tut-tutting and despairing about the miserabilists and how awful they are bringing everything and everyone down, when they could simply choose to ignore or block it. I can only think they get some personal benefit or satisfaction from those they rail against. We know there are many on here that are just too miserable, negative, angry - I think we are getting a bit of a window into their souls on here (we all reveal something about the sort of people we are by the way we behave on here) and to me they deserve our pity or some sympathy/empathy. If we cannot manage that, we can choose to ignore them, and there is a facility on here to help us do this. We are not going to change how others feel about Bristol City because how others feel about their club is mostly to do with how they feel about themselves, and you are not going to change that with reference to Nottm Forest's budget and wage bill. Save yourself the bother and employ the "ignore" thingy on here (which I know you will not do and will instead continue to be "outraged" and "upset" by the negativity and miserabilism, and to glean whatever it is you get by ountering this toxicity through demonstrating your logic, reason and perspective about Bristol City and all its ups and downs. So, Happy New Year, and up the City!)
