  1. Defences are at 'sixes and sevens' and tackles are 'six of one, half a dozen of another'. It's all just mumbo jumbo if ypu ask me!
  2. Yeah, although shifting a high earner isn't easy and I suspect he'd stay. Might be easier to shift Wright, no?
  3. Yeah I'm thinking this now. Realistically Kalas is just beyond us and our primary needs are elsewhere. Webster and Kelly, with Baker and Wright as back up.
  4. I think that game was actually quite important from a scouting POV. They can't recommend a player if there's easily available evidence out there thay he's not ready. Likewise, had any of those Czechs unexpectedly played out of their skin, their agents might have had phonecalls. We call it the Dave Cotterill syndrome.
  5. From the Portugal game... And it's Joao Moutinho to ask the question... What?! No! He took a free effing kick! He didn't pass round a questionnaire. In fact, he didn't even have an inquisitive expression on his face ffs...
  6. Yes but the problem is weve seen a glimpse of how close we are to being promotion contenders. When you get a taste of it you want to see the 10% extra commitment/investment needed to get the team there.
  7. Totes agree with your points. I would still draw the obvious distinction between Bielsa's swashbuckling Leeds, and Warnock's spit in your eye, percentage football. I just wouldn't pay the money to watch the Pulis/Alladyce/Colin brand of attritional, cynical 1-0 winning machines. And I get no joy from watching City players feigning injury to win a game. How can winning be everything if you have to sit there bored for an hour ane a half.
  8. Teams hit the woodwork against us too, could be the same amount??
  9. I must be some sort of freak because I like City to play nice football regardless of results! What happened to the Bristol City tradition of playing football the right way that used to be talked about? If every team only cared about results we would be trapped in some sort of Klinsmann/Warnock dystopia!
  10. I just dug out my text to my Blackburn mate at half time: What a mental, stressful, entertaining half of football! First ten we were nicely on top, then that goal from a corner just ruined our confidence and we couldn't play a simple pass until the free kick. 2-2 might still be a shout. You needed to capitalise when we were all over the shop
  11. That doesn't make me feel any better about our chances!
  12. After Boro we'll have a good idea of whether we look like catching Boro. Derby are out of sorts but have a nice run in. I would gladly put money on Villa staying in the top 6. Wednesday and Preston need to stop winning now...
  13. Yeah and that's where we differ. I factor in form and happy to debate that or not bother! I'm thinking that at least 2 from Villa, Wednesday, derby and Forest will win their next game. If we draw the next 2 we'd be 2 or 3 points off 6th with a game in hand and Wigan to come. But crucially, Villa and Wednesday away to come. So I see how you can think that we'd still be in with a shout. But I'm incredibly skeptical.
  14. Good comments. I'm amazed that in theory your 'must win' radar wouldn't start buzzing until we find ourselves having not won in 7 league games, and needing to win 6 or 7 of our last 8! Suddenly we find form to humble West Brom at Ashton Gate. Then, 4 days later we beat in-form Villa at Villa Park. We later beat in-form Wednesday at Hillsboro etc etc. It's like Roy of the Rovers!
  15. That's an interesting perspective. I hope you're right. Go on then... if we draw those 2 would Wigan home be 'must win'?
