  1. You have all said it already, but I add to the ranks of those who it may have rankled with a bit in the past, but now I love it, as it is complete affirmation of the fact we are now the "only team in Bristol" worth considering.
  2. If any one needs them? Tickets are U23,s and inside the upper stand now, so mods maybe delete, unless I can get them outside to you?
  3. Spot on, hoenst and accurate as always. he can clearly see the issues and he knew early doors we needed someone to "put the ball in the back of the net" and said so. Its not his fault we are where we are and there is simply no one better for the job (big job) we have as a club. Absolute bonkers to think of changing, look at Notts Forest....
  4. I know he is a cracking lad, with cracking hair and he is an absolutely tenacious tackler, who gets all over the pitch, he also puts more senior pro's to shame with his commitment and energy. BUT and for me its a big but, you still have to be more then that to play in the middle for a team that wants to succeed in the Championship. What you need to succeed and IMHO he does not "yet" possess is this: Positional awareness A footballing brain / sixth sense - he is way to Helter-Skelter for me, we look far more solid when King plays in the middle. Being a good passer (his first pass last night was straight to a white shirt), his pass completion is poor. A great first touch (more noticeable in the previous games), but he often needs several touches to control the ball. Assists - the stats speak for themselves here, HNM is probably bottom of this for city, below even those like Ping who have only played a handful of games. He is great to watch and I am sure he is going to get better and better and go on to great things, but we are not an academy, we are in a brutal unforgiving league and we need an upgrade /King/Williams in the middle at the moment. I will get my tin helmet on.....
  5. me too, looking forward to it. Vixens played well by all accounts. both teams getting the same result, how often does that happen?
  6. Hi Pete, Eddie is correct, I know you had set up issues, but on the playback, one you is super loud and other two pretty faint, great show, but the differences in sound bad it a tough listen at times, as you had to turn it up to hear some of it and down to stop the neighbors getting involved and adding to the list of people who felt HNM is playing well and contributing (I seem alone in thinking he means well, is a cracking tackler, but has a first touch like Fam and cannot pass to save his life and actually contributes little towards winning a game. ).... baa humbug and all that. But you did a great job steering it all
  7. I suspect offside bang on the money for me don't think there were really bad elements, just too many, too used to losing and in their comfort zone, don't think any of them consciously gave up, but various circumstances made it that way. I do actually suspect he DOES still have a few players around now that were in that camp (Wells/Palmer to name but two). I think what has changed is their circumstances and certainly Palmer and probably Wells are now more focused and committed (both realising they are on contracts here that are miles better then anyone will offer them elsewhere now and they need to put it in more to stay in the first team reckoning or face life in the U23's and probably for both of them the end of their careers at the high earning end of the football pyramid
  8. Anyone ITK? Have we been staking out the hotels in Clifton?
  9. I wonder if he will play Vyner in another position (assuming Kalas or Simpson is coming in at right back), I know most rule out Vyner, but I still can see him in an more advanced role right side of midfield.
  10. Never been a fan of the keeper being the captain and we lack leadership on the pitch, a good example is the free kick that Wells balls up (yet again). The 3 /4 players over the ball beforehand appeared to arguing over who was going to take it? surely these things are decided before the game and if not the Captain should be stepping in to sort it out. how can a keeper do that? Add in Bents is certainly not playing at the level he was last season (so is the weight of the armband not helping him IMHO) Matty James would get my vote as he looks to be a starter in every game and does appear to have a good brain on him.
  11. A little generous with Alex Scott, but bang on the money for the rest. Oddly Weimann who was poor over the 90 did actually win the free kick for our goal and won another a few minutes later that Wells wasted as normal.
  12. Give Pearson a chance, still believe he is the man for city
  13. Dear old Warnock, getting in to the mind games already by "telling us" via the press he only has 8 players trainers...... hoping we will take our foot off the gas and think its going to be easy. He should know we never take our foot off the Gas.... and hopefully complacency is behind us... but the jury out on that one. https://www.hartlepoolmail.co.uk/sport/football/middlesbrough-fc/we-only-had-eight-lads-training-yesterday-neil-warnock-delivers-worrying-middlesbrough-team-news-ahead-of-bristol-city-clash-3345164
  14. RIP fellow red - enjoyed his post over many years, started following city on the forums 25 years ago and am now one of the old guard (more as a reader then contributor). Glad we were informed of his passing, as sometimes regulars on here just "disappear", maybe we need a list held somewhere of those who we are family with via the forums who go (be it passing, banned, decided the negativity was too much for them etc, fed up with LJ passing it sideways again etc ) I miss Red Goblin and Percy Parrot and the likes. wish I knew what had happened to them all?
