  1. I have come to the conclusion that there are around a dozen posters here that are given the task of spouting absolute nonsense to generate debate and traffic. These posters cleverly hide this face by being unable to spell, offer reasoned opinion and/or display minimal football knowledge so that everyone else feels the need to respond. Its either that or right now we have the football team some of our fanbase deserves.
  2. This isn’t a bad idea. It does feel so samey down there. Need to change the atmosphere. The thing that annoyed me the most tonight was Taylor grabbing the ball as they knew they could win it. Imagine that, not settling for a point away but knowing they had 3 minutes to win at and believing they could. What does that say that other clubs think about us? Vulnerable? Brittle? Soft? On a par with Rowett saying last year that we were basically 3 points in waiting.
  3. How anyone can criticise Nahki Wells tonight just has an agenda. Played on the shoulder, lovely timed runs in-behind, shot on sight which led to our goal, a post-hit, and a great effort from distance. Also held it and rarely gave it away. We should invest in him. He cost us £5m and we rarely use him wisely and when we do he always looks sharp and a threat. Its the lack of players around him to get the best out of him thats the issue.
  4. Could barely type whilst searching for this thread I expect out of sheer glee and laughter. A long night ahead for him unable to sleep with the anticipation of all the reaction he may cause. Wow.
  5. How long have you been giggling excitedly to resurrect this thread. Sad act.
  6. Yeah 4-0 but 3-0 down after 19 mins!! All of this after that Colin Gordon winner on a horrific rainy day at the Gate v Brian Deane and Doncaster. Gordon nearly took the keepers head off and fouled him at least 4 times during that goal!!
  7. Robbie Carnage obliterating half of Merseyside with his elbows that night at Tranmere didn’t help!
  8. 1988 Play-off final replay v Walsall, Fellows Park. In the first leg we managed to lose 1-3 at the Gate, after being 1-0 up with 28 mins left infront of 25,000, and then won 2-0 at Walsall to haul us level in the tie, after which we conspired to lose a pen shoot out for home advantage in the final replay. 19 mins into said replay - Walsall 3-0 Bristol City. A 270 minute slow death with City typically keeping us interested but then imploding. Almost a perfect set of matches to sum us up over the last 35 years. David Kelly 5 goals across the 3 games. First time I was old enough to experience genuine heartbreak as a City fan.
  9. Love him. Just what we need. Saw glimpses of it at Millwall and again today but he likes a chirp and wants to get involved. About time we had some gob in there who is not afraid to put a foot in. Bet he is great around the club too. Keep him fit and and others have said, a midfield of Williams, James and Massengo is very very exciting.
  10. Obvious what my all time favourite is!
  11. Fantastic player. Will get better with better players around him in a good side - which we will become with patience and under NP. It is fortunate we kept him until now and credit to him for sticking it out. LJ tried to make him a new Makalele, and poor old Dean Holden did not have the first clue to do with a player of his potential and footballing upbringing. Would love us to get him tied down to a contract. Could have a side built around him.

    Yeah looks like its just you. In fact, in hindsight, he should have not even run for that chance. When the ball somehow found itself to him, he should have blazed the ball into our away end, ripped his City shirt off, whilst revealing a t-shirt with Stan Bowles and Les Ferdinand on. God help us.
  13. When we talk about “natural finishers”, this man started it. RIP Jimmy.
  14. Oh my god this is the best thing I have ever seen. Just when I thought today could not get any better Ashton gives me this. Cruise meets Brent meets Knighton.

    * Weird. (Extra education)! Shall we just celebrate a win and be happy for a player who got a great last minute winner? Have a good evening.

    Would you like a CV? My experience is irrelevant. My comment was based on nonsense about him I have read on here which in my opinion is all of what I said.

    Consummate professional who gets unfair and unfounded and uneducated stick on here for no apparent reason. Very pleased for him.
  18. Wahhhhayyyyy here he is!! Massive win masterminded by NP, get yourself a cider!
  19. Is it time?!?!? Another win on the road for the Robins!!! Haaa what a ridiculous original post this was. Have a good night fellow Redssss!!!!!
  20. Vyner only Championship standard sporadically I am afraid. Below average centre-half, holding midfielder, and now right-back. Of the age where I think unfortunately must be one to move on and then reinvest the funds.
  21. Yeah sorry meant to quote something else. Been a long day!
  22. 2 defeats in 7 games this season. Delivered so far.
  23. Are we including the close season in that? I am worried about this season. We stayed in the division last year.
  24. I was expecting us to stay in the division and avoid relegation. A season of consolidation with a few scares along the way. What I have seen so far has been encouraging and I think my expectations will be met.
