  1. You can’t see the fans at Ashton Gate dragging the team from 2-0 down in the last few minutes to get back to 2-2?
  2. You could look at it as we didn't dominate the game, struggled to keep the ball and still won 2-0 and never looked like conceding . Playing poorly and winning is a good sign. God knows how many games I've seen us either play poorly and get smashed or play well and still lose!
  3. To be fair, the doctors probably didn't huddle round your X-ray and say "yeah go on then, we'll have a go". You'd never do surgery unless necessary.

    Not since Nagy last week anyway. When was the last time we had 4 centre mids as a good as Brownhill,Palmer, Nagy and Massengo?
  5. If anything they should have been looking at Jimenez in front of De Gea blocking his view as offside. Agree as above that if you have to pull out geometric shapes it’s not clear and obvious and is a waste of time.
  6. I actually thinks he tries to take games by the scruff of the neck and plays all the roles, but that just means he doesn’t excel at them and just ends up being solid and not spectacular. i think if he just focussed on one role, he would be far more effective and noticeable.
  7. You didn't get crucified, people disagreed that you said letting Pring go out on loan was an awful decision. We wouldn't know Dasilva was out for 6 months at that point, so Pring would have been sat on the bench, or more likely not even been in many squads for tis season and would hardly develop.

    I do like the way once he collects the ball he's straight to the edge of his area looking for a quick throw for a counter attack. Weimann will be right on this. Always felt Niki slows the game down a bit too much here.

    I like Fammy, but there was no way he would finish the chance Afobe would. He reminds me of Steve Brooker. Strong, decent pace, can finish. Must be a nightmare to play against.
  10. He went out on loan before Dasilva was injured, so not a terrible decision at all.
  11. I think there is a balance that has to be drawn for youth players and how much game time they will get in our first team. Morrell, Vyner, O'Leary, Pring, etc they could stay with us and not go on loan and be on the Bech. Get 10 mins here and there, a cup 90 mins, maybe an unused sub. Thats not great for their development. 35-50 games in the division below will be far better for their development as a player & moving away from their comfort zone, new team mates, etc will be better development for them as a person. Semenyo has had his loan year out, impressed at Newport, was recalled, didn't seem to feature that much but is now in the 1st team squad. O'Leary did get some chances last year and was good, but with Bentley, Niki and Gilmartin, I think sending Max on loan is a no brainer. Pring in hindsight of Dasilvas injury probably would have got game time, however LJ wasn't to know that, so again another loan at a higher level was the obvious choice. Vyner is one that could have been in an around the first team, but as someone above mentioned I think LJ sees him as a right back and with Hunt and now Pedro, again game time is key so a 'high' level of football, European matches, top end of the Scottish Premiership? I'm OK with that. Massengo is a one off signing IMO. Not often is an 18 year old highly thought of player from Monaco will be available and willing to join us. Imagine the uproar if it came out we decided not to sign him in light of playing on of our own kids. Massengo 'should' net us a big profit in the next couple of years.
  12. Don't think anyone was upset about it? OP called the new name for Loftus Road stupid believing it to be a sponsorship dealer, he was told by one or two that it was actually named in memory of a young QPR fan who was killed. OP acknowledged this and the thread went back to Massengos performance. I'd say the people doing the stabbings are the 'real problem' rather than people informing others over the reason of a stadium name change...
  13. You can try to login/buy it via the website, I couldn't even get the app to open so went via that
  14. Make sure the VPN is on and you are 'in' a foreign country, refresh the bcfc website and then 2-3 more options become available and the top one is buying the live video.
  15. Wait a bit closer to the kick off otherwise it starts using your 10GB up
