  1. Most successful teams have a set style of play with the same formation and a preferred first team lineup. They play to their strengths. Obviously substitutions are needed from time to time due to injuries, suspensions etc but those coming in simply slot in to the formation and style of play. After many years of LJ I could not tell you what his preferred formation is, what his preferred first team lineup is nor what is his preferred style of play.
  2. Because the bigger clubs always get treated more leniently by the powers that be. Reminds me of when Swindon were relegated two divisions for financial irregularities and at the same time time Spurs were only fined for the same offence.
  3. Shows how far we have come to now be signing the likes of Benik Afobe and Ashley Williams. A couple of years ago we would have had no chance.
  4. If we had signed a striker of the calibre of Benik Adobe a couple of years ago I would have been astounded and delighted. He was out of our league in terms of profile and cost. Whether this signing is a reflection of our increasing status or his deterioration in form remains to be seen. It is probably a combination of both. I personally think this could prove to be an inspired signing and particularly since it was apparently arranged at the last moment following the collapse of the Nketiah loan. Welcome to Bristol City Benik .
  5. Can’t blame him if he opts for Leeds after Sunday’s debacle.
  6. Wow! I’d completely forgotten about that 2 star and 3 star business. You referring to it really takes me back. Back in the 60’s I used to cut out the black and white pixelated photos of the players, stick them in my scrap book and wait for the players to come out after the match to get them autographed.
  7. With that defeat we went bottom of the second division. Jantzen Derrick scored our second in injury time after we were 1-4 down. Green un headline that evening was "City are rocked and go bottom". RIP Alan.
  8. 'Brings it under his spell" "he has a good engine" "back stick" "the park", "'pulls the trigger" "custodian" and other similar bollocks commentators come up with. Not to mention "unlucky" when a highly paid premier league player misses an open goal my granny could scored.
  9. Last week it was reported that we have hit the woodwork more times this season than any other club in all four divisions. Unfortunately I can't remember where I heard/read it.
  10. Apologies. It was a typo so no hidden agenda and as you say it doesn't make much difference.
  11. Brilliant photo. So glad you all had a great day.
  12. I didn't pick and choose. I included all our competitive matches. It's up to LJ which team he picks and I hardly think Plymouth are world beaters. They beat us at home but are currently propping up league one.
  13. Yes. Let's hope it's better than this year.
  14. Fair comment. We are mid table this season which helps cancel out the results from Jan to May last season. I was simply reviewing the year as it ends but I agree different time periods will give different results.
