  1. Easy solution......get rid of VAR and stop trying to make the game of football 'perfect'.
  2. Is Blasphemy OK these days.................?
  3. A better idea would be to have votes of no confidence for posters on this forum. Should tidy things up a bit!
  4. When on his game, Pack is our best passer of the ball. I think the main problem this season is Smith being injured. When Smith plays, he's the one usually collecting the ball from the back, which allows Pack to move further forward and make more incisive passes.
  5. Since the formation of the Premier League, City have only had (I think?) 9 seasons in the second tier of English football, so that's just 9 seasons with the opportunity to get promoted to the Premier league, and in 1 of those seasons we came very close. Maybe not such an abject failure when looked at this way perhaps? When in the second tier, we are always having to compete with bigger, better, richer clubs than ourselves. At the moment, you have Villa, Derby, Middlesbrough, Leeds, Forest etc etc etc, so really not hard to see why it's so difficult. In the past we have tried going toe to toe with these other clubs, and throwing as much money as we are able at it in the process. This was never going to work IMO, unless you have an absolute fluke of a season. BUT Like it or not, City are now adopting a different approach, and attempting to create a model that will allow steady progress, to reach a point where we have been able to create a team to achieve that final goal. Will it work,? Who knows, but for those outside of the club looking in, it very much seems the opinion is "when" City get to the Prem, not "if". Progress? I think so.
  6. Exactly the type of ridiculous garbage that is dragging this forum down.
  7. I like him, and more to the point believe in him, and believe that ultimately he will succeed. No denying that he makes mistakes (who doesn't?) and sometimes it appears to me that he can be guilty of overthinking things, although that doesn't mean that I'm right and he's wrong. I think that it is an absolutely huge task to get City to a position in this league where we can firstly compete, and then to challenge. During Lee's tenure to date, we have done both. I get as frustrated as anyone when we go on losing runs, and turn in performances as we did against Preston, but still have confidence that Lee WILL get us there. I totally understand if other supporters have different opinions, and have no problem at all in people airing their thoughts. But sadly, there seem to be a few on here that will never accept Lee as manager/head coach at this club, and seem determined to vent their views at every single opportunity. Not necessary and not helpful IMO.

    Pretty much what I would like to see, and to be honest that formation was my expectation following the signings we made in the summer. Has my backing too, and has done since he has been here. BUT, Saturday truly was awful and he has to take a large part of the blame for that. I can see his reasoning in wanting to get an extra body in midfield, but in doing so we totally sacrificed any chance of playing to our own strengths. As others have stated, he needs to have belief in our own style of football and stick with it, and stop worrying about how the opposition plays and how to counteract them.
  9. Cigarette manufacture was also widely associated with Bristol. So maybe we could be known as "The butts", or maybe "The dog-ends", or perhaps "The fags"........... Then again, maybe not...................................
  10. No other team is called "Bristol City", that's enough of an identity for me..............

    I was going to mention this myself. I am certain neither of our other two keepers would have done this.
  12. Quite like the look of that, but personally I would put in Walsh instead of Paterson.
  13. I would advocate that City spring all their attacks down the right hand side, as all the Rotherham players seem to have a problem with their left eyes?
