  1. Whilst some performances are a bit woeful, to dominate teams week in week out is not possible for any team in this league. With the exception of Luton and Leeds we’ve been in with shout of winning or at least getting points in every game we’ve played, no matter how badly we’ve played, which is very positive in such a competitive league. We are also scoring a lot of important late goals which perhaps suggests lee is happy for us to not be too energetic and play the high press or dominate teams from the outset. This is a bit of a dilemma as when we take the game to our opposition we look like a really good side (eg 2nd half vs Charlton even with 10 men). Nagy will make a difference when back and let’s hope we’ve an option up front in mind come jan- could make all the difference.....

    Fair play lads. Credit to you both for how you discussed the events of sat. Balanced view and correct to call out what was unacceptable. It’s a difficult mix- politics and football- and it’s shite the far right have long tried to air their own agendas amongst us. I think it’s positive it gets more coverage these days as that means people might feel more aware before spouting these bollocks opinions...(hopefully).... Good we’re back in action this week to put this sorry shite behind us. COYR
  3. So, based on the support shown at Luton, and on here for known racists and racist organisations, the answer to the question from the original post is, Yes, racism is a problem at city games... This does reflect a wider trend in society- populism and vilification of foreigners- encouraged by the right wing media, which is supported by a lot of the population.
  4. Possibly. Not sure if stones is down yet but a dearth of CB options means the class of Webster is surely a better option than keane. Full backs were possibly a bigger issue tonight . How on earth trippier and rose got the nod ahead of TAA and chilwell is insane. Chilwell’s ace. Rice and Henderson is a seriously poor midfield selection too. Southgate has done loads right in the last few years but got it totally wrong tonight.....
  5. Huddersfield do look dire. 2 seasons in the prem so its surprising they haven’t got a bit of cash to buy someone half decent . Bit annoying that bobby would rather bench it for Fulham than play for us again . Whatever could have lured him to the millionaires of Fulham to be a sub..
  6. Given how in previous Jan windows we have been hugely reluctant to go for it, this represents a massive change of approach! It’s ballsy alright, but I guess the fees we’ve received this summer, esp Webster have created an opportunity. Big job for Lee and team to integrate the new players, so we could see yet more losing and winning runs, but we’ve invested in a lot of talent and gone for an overhaul as opposed to a tweak. We were so close last season to play offs, but conversely also some way off the top teams. I can’t wait to see what this new lot can achieve. Good we have a cup game next week too.
  7. Not sure why but we are miles off the pace, and have been through our preseason games. Could be the US trip. Leeds were significantly faster in mind and body yesterday. Playing through us in midfield, or finding space out wide on both sides repeatedly. We didn’t get near them. The ease with which they switched play was awful. we also seemed to need far too much time on the ball. That’s one thing at least pato offers. He gets his head up quickly and looks to move the ball. Formation and shape did not work at all and we desperately need a defensive midfielder. More so than a forward I think. quite a lot of work needed on the training ground ...but loads of time to get it right.. u reds.
  8. Terrible decision from LJ to drop max, who has proven he can cut it in he Champ. Kiwi was signed as a fourth choice and should have remained on the bench . At this level it’s important a keeper can play out from the back and be comfortable with ball at his feet. Marinovic was most certainly not comfortable and appears to lack sureness of touch/control. Not his fault but he should be sub, as a last ditch option. You could see defence were unsettled and didn’t trust his kicking so were much higher up the pitch second half, uncertain about either passing back or him picking them out to build from the back. Max is good at these things . Big fail from LJ, not unlike the Semenyo Start vs one of the leagues best and most attaching right backs. Hopefully with a break, heads are cleared and we go for it during the final 10 games with some smarter management . Still all to play for.
  9. Danny Ndelklo by Idles is a right rouser with a chorus made for Famara Diedhiou. Idles are local boys done good too. Bet one of em goes down the gate. we should play it pre game .
  10. Bit of perspective helps.... Looking at facts, we have finished In the top half of the championship about 3 times in around 40 years... Last year was one of those times and that is where we are positioned now. I agree we should look to improve but we do need to be realistic. We are producing some fantastic footballers in the academy . That’s something to be proud of. Personally I love it that we have local lads in the team/ squad. Teams such as forest, Middlesbrough, Stoke, Leeds, West Brom etc spend 10-16million on one player... surely we know better than other clubs the risk to the club if we spend silly money. We should not compete with that. We sing (well some do) about the 8 that saved this football team often enough! We are roughly where we should be so the time to get hysterical about losing runs and relegation is when we are in those positions, at the moment we aren’t. That said.. We should defo look at 352 or 433 tho (if only) given the decent players we have.
  11. Morning all. New poster ere. Just wanted to say that whilst we all have understandable gripes with our club, there are times when they make you proud..... Did the birthday party package for my kids and the club looked after them amazingly and showed what a really classy club we are . Players stopped for photos, club staff are quality and fans were great even with a bunch of 11 year old girls waving flags blocking peoples views n that! My 2girls love it and started going regularly last year, but all the kids were buzzing. I reckon there’s a few new fans gained last night, or at least some young uns have caught the city bug rather than following some prem league team 100’s of miles away from their city. I know it is mostly about what goes on, on the pitch and Bristol sport can be a shambles with the fans at times (season ticket debacle etc) but the club is a class act when they get it right . Defo need some more quality in central defence and up front mind. That Plymouth forward bulllied us a bit at times even with f all service , showing Matty how to hold it up and we lack composure up top (until wieman came on) here’s hoping for a great season. Well, more hope than expectation coyr
