  1. Free bet? They should ask for the odds of getting a penalty and ending the game against 10 men...
  2. He stays on his line, you moan that he doesn't close the angle down. Bentley did what a goalkeeper should do in that position - force the attacker to make a decision and don't give him too much time.
  3. As a goalkeeper, you'd get absolutely slated for staying on your line and not coming out when he did. The bigger issue tonight was that we didn't create enough chances and Bournemouth were the better team in the second half. If there was only going to be one goal in the second half it wasn't going to be scored by us. Martin and Wells are the best partnership we have, and that's not a knock on Fam.
  4. European football - did you have to!!? You do realise that they'll now use that as a badge of honour, when in fact nobody outside of the English leagues know about them. Even then it's debatable...
  5. Looks good, and really impressive. If all goes to plan it really will be a hugely impressive area of Bristol. As for redeveloping the Atyeo, unless the houses suddenly become owned by Bristol Sport (let's be fair the prices will get higher and higher on the remaining houses as they were being sold off), it won't happen. It may get a bit of a face-lift, lick of paint, newer seats etc, but it's used to house the away fans now. Unless we were able to get into the Prem, and regularly be up amongst the top 6-8 clubs we aren't going to be doing (or probably need) any large redevelopm
  6. Beat me to it @Gazred. We could probably put together a full 11 of longterm injured loan players - although I can't think of a goalkeeper, but maybe if we include longterm contracted players then we could add Mercer. Go that route may as well throw in Matthews and Brooker as well for a few subs!!
  7. Well after reading through that, I'd hope that option 1 (if it has to be one or the other) would be chosen. As my parents have now moved to Ashton Vale, it looks like they would come under the "zone", so a complete ban would see me coming into Bristol less and less as I drive a Kuga diesel (3 year old). Yes my wife has a newer car - Fiesta petrol, but I bought the Kuga for one simple reason - long distance breaks with a dog and a small child. We live in Essex, so whenever we come down it's not a simple case of throw a few things in the car and go, it's for a few days/week at a time. Fiesta or
  8. Pretty sure the parent club have a say on what rehab/where it happens. Bit of a thigh strain they're unlikely to be that fussed, but if it's a recurrence of a previous big injury, then at the end of the day he is their asset. We've had players out on loan who have been injured, and have returned to us for rehab. Happy to be corrected on all of this though. Parts of it at least, but sure he did some here as well.
  9. Afobe's injury took a few days to be confirmed last season, despite it being pretty much common knowledge. Think it was also confirmed from the Stoke end. My guess is because he's not our player, Fulham would need to get their doctors/team etc to check it out, and they are waiting for results, scans etc to come back first. Happened on Tuesday night, would guess he would have gone back to London yesterday at some point, 24-48 hours turnaround would be tomorrow, so we may get some news then maybe. I'd be amazed if he was seen again before Christmas, and that's if it's not as bad a
  10. Humorous, but pretty sure he doesn't do social media.
  11. He could try to be a bit more honest and to the point next time, rather than beating around the bush.....
  12. Typical Warnock team, never in a rush to do anything - didn't think it was possible to slow down but they did after the goal!!! End of the day that was crap. We were never in the game, and that could quite easily have been a Johnson side post lockdown. Terrible decision by Bentley for the goal, even worse from Moore. Lot of work to do before Saturday, we'll see what Holden is really made of, because whilst Barnsley was disappointing/irritating, tonight was abysmal.
  13. Be lucky to get anything from this. Middlesbrough by and far the better team
  14. Not sure what's more embarrassing: knowing the original song, or trying to change the words to make it relevant to City.
  15. Can't argue with any of that. Moller, Shaw and Waugh were before my time though (Welch was number 1 when I started to take an interest), but that's a pretty good summing up of everyone else. Flapper was fine for the level we were at at the time, but he had no competition for his spot for so long. Mercer was a better all round keeper than him, but he was forever injured, and I just remember getting stop gap loan keepers to sit on the bench in case Steve was injured. Incidentally a few of those loan keepers around that time actually went on to be very good solid keepers at this level,
  16. You are Steve Phillips aren't you? Give it a rest Flapper....
  17. If it's a case of Bakinson or Williams, it has to be Bakinson until Williams can push him out of the team. Unlike Johnson the tinkerman, I get the impression that Holden won't just change players for the sake of it, or because he has favourites (or players that he's signed). Every player in the team at the moment is worthy of their place- the table doesn't lie. It's a good issue to have, because let's be honest there probably weren't many people thinking that Bakinson would have made as much of an impression so quickly!! There will be times when players will be rested and swappe
  18. Now is the time he has to. Before he's usually been third choice, thrown in when needed, then removed when others ahead of him have been fit. He's been trusted as the number 2, and has the belief and ambition to play regularly. This is the perfect time to prove that he is more than capable of playing, and staying in the side. He needs to perform to keep Bentley out of the team.
  19. Been to Slough? That takes some beating. Stayed in a hotel there once overnight before getting a very early flight to Rome. Was on the ground floor (cheap room to be fair) and pretty sure someone tried getting in the window through the night!
  20. A bit like Paterson after his loan. For me, up until then, he had been frustrating - one game brilliant, and the next 2 or 3 anonymous. In fairness to him, he came back from his loan, refreshed, reinvigorated and has looked a great player. It was the right decision for him at that time. I still think he is one of those players that needs direct competition for his place, otherwise he gets too comfortable, and may as well not be on the pitch. As good as Palmer is on his best day, I think he is a bit like Jet, in the respect of needing continuity in one position, and a regular ru
  21. Has anyone ordered one of these yet? I ordered one just over a week ago and haven't received anything yet. Have just checked my PayPal and nothing has been taken either...
  22. Do it. That will boil their piss!!!!
  23. Highlights mainly. As I said haven't seen enough of him, like many others. Highlights can be very misleading though, so even then looking tidy doesn't really mean much. Presuming this goes through, we really have to presume that the coaching team doesn't rate him that much. With that in mind we're going to have to trust them. He may just be unfortunate in that he has too many people in front of him, and the club feels it would be better to let him go elsewhere. Could end up being that we have a buyback option, or a very decent sell on, just in case he kicks on later. One
  24. I'm going to play devils advocate here. Holden is well aware of him and what he can do. If he currently can't get into our squad (or won't get in when fully fit if he's not quite ready), then why is he going to Luton? No disrespect to Luton, but if he was THAT good, then surely he would be getting into our squad, or pushing for a move higher up the league standings? I've personally not seen enough of him to form a decent opinion of him, but maybe he's not quite good enough to be where we are/want to be. What I have seen of him, he looks a tidy player. We don't see him day i
