  1. Terry Cooper : Flashback for the fans.

    Wonderful seeing all that. Well put together. Great man
  2. Thanks for this mate. Like I've said elsewhere - I'm starting to believe.
  3. Have we under estimated LJ ?

    Be nice if people took the trouble to read what has been written after serious thought.
  4. Have we under estimated LJ ?

    If it is the latest way then you've invented it. There was nothing wild about my post. I'm suggesting that Jamie Mac has been a significant factor in the change of form. In doing so I'm admitting that I was wrong about Pembo. How would you explain our recent successes?
  5. Have we under estimated LJ ?

    Okay. Speculative of course but is it very speculative? We see quite a lot of LJ and increasing Jamie Mac throughout the week on the Official site. Holden is beginning to feature more with the run of good results. Of course Holden has a role on the training ground with LJ and Jamie Mac (I didn't say he did nothing, rather that I was unsure of his level of influence within the Management/coaching team) What else would they be doing throughout the week? Their appearances on the Official site give us a view of them on which we can base an opinion. Of course you will have noticed that I made my post, which included my reference to Holden, on the morning before the latest great result against Stoke. Holden was given what might be his most significant interview so far on the Official site on the evening after that game Out of interest what do think of Jamie Mac? Do you have an opinion on his effect on the squad since he became assistant manager?
  6. Palace at Home

    If we hadn't already beaten Watford and Stoke I think it would be right to say this is a shit draw but now we know we can beat lower ranked Premiership sides with our reserves i think it's the perfect entree to the 5th round where we will have an even better chance of a massively better draw.
  7. How is this 'Racism'? / Mark Sampson (Merged)

    If this is true then he totally deserves what has happened. Personally I think it's weird having a male coach for the England Women, almost certain to cause tensions/misunderstandings at the very least.
  8. How is this 'Racism'? / Mark Sampson (Merged)

    Don't get it. Sampson is being sacked for something he did before he became England Coach?
  9. SSN last night.....

    Our win was mentioned by Gary Richardson on the Radio 4 "Today" programme this morning so he thought it was the outstanding result. Apart from this bit of reporting by someone who knows the game properly most people who say they are football fans (but don't actually go to any games, just watch watch the Premiership on TV) know next to nothing about the 3 lower leagues and further many think that Bristol is some poxy little village somewhere. So thankyou very much Gary. About every 5 years I get excited about City when things like this happen. Trying not to shoot my bolt .... again!!
  10. Peter Crouch

    Last time Crouchie played at Ashton Gate he hand-balled out of their area. Went down in my estimation then unfortunately
  11. Have we under estimated LJ ?

    We'll surely see soon enough. I imagine the best managers are those who sense when things could go seriously wrong rather than a little bit wrong and know how to head off a seriously bad patch.
  12. Have we under estimated LJ ?

    I think we have to appraise the coaching team and not just LJ. For me Jamie Mac has to be the one who has made the difference. MA and LJ chose him (and booted out Pembo, this upset me, especially listening to MA's bullshit afterwards) so they have to be congratulated on that but Jamie Mac has been the inspirational figure with the important Scots gravitas. This has to have impressed a young group of players. Holden remains a shadowy presence still not sure what he brings. But LJ cannot alone be credited for the temporary success.
  13. In the Courts

    No wheelie bin explains it.
  14. starting to believe a bit more

    My theory is the blend of McAlistair and LJ has really brought this group of mainly young players working together for one another. Seeing Joe rush out to the left of the box and fight like **** to get the ball back and then put Cauley in was typical.
  15. The Official Bristol City v Derby County Match Day Thread 8

    thanks mate. Like the team. 3 5 2? Woodrow deserves a starting chance, otherwise why sign him?
