    Reading away SOLD OUT

    Their ground is half empty these days, so no idea why they'd move home fans into that stand. Plenty of clubs in the Champ would take more than 2200 there this season if they could. You're all right though - it's a crap away day at a soulless generic bowl of a ground. Unfortunately, I always feel obliged to attend as i only live 15 mins down the road

    A very succinct and accurate summary

    Not one of them

    I wish he’d have taken a leaf out of Bobby’s book and beefed up a bit over the off season. He looks great on the ball, but his lack of physicality is so far showing this year. He should have won that header, no question.

    He probably assumed 2 defenders against one attacker was probably enough to clear the ball? a lesson learned perhaps?

    I thought Maenpaa looked pretty assured. He pinged a few nice passes out to the wings - you know, the sort Frankie puts in the stands. Not sure Nikki could do anything about the goal either.

    Wigan Athletic v Bristol City Match Day 9

    Reckon Maenpaa must have been our most accurate passer - says it all really. Also reckon the pundits got the MoM right. Morsy bossed our midfield tonight.

    Both CBs were solid today. Kalas just shaded it for that goal line clearance. Didn’t hear as I was walking out, but who got MoM?
  8. My Sky Sports app has just started sending me updates through for the City v Sunderland game from last season - is anyone else receiving these? City currently 3-0 - i'm feeling confident

    The highlights

    I’m slightly more buoyed about the result after watching the Sky highlights. Seems we were unlucky not to score, but my God, their goals were terrible from our defensive point of view. Pisano needs to do much better to stop that cross for the second.

    back four tomorrow

    If it (Baker's injury) was that desperate, i'm sure we'd have seen a loan CB by now.

    Simple question...?

    Impossible to tell after one game, surely?! We’ll get better (as will Forest). Not too disappointed with today’s effort though, even though we were 2nd best for large parts of the second half. New guys looked all looked good, but Pato looked to be the passenger he was for the 2nd half of last season. Eliasson didn’t look anywhere near the world-beater I was lead to believe he was in pre-season either. Both of these need to show improvement by the end of August, for me.

    C'mon Bryan, sign your contract!

    I've really no idea what his agent is advising him, but when I heard it mentioned before, it made perfect sense - if you're a team with a list of targets at left back/mid, and one has a year to run whilst the others don't (but may have release clauses?), the one with the year left immediately becomes of interest above the others i would suspect. The thing with the asking price is it's our asking price, which would be higher than a price dictated by the fact Joe's soon out of contract. If the buying team get a better deal, would that not allow Joe to negotiate a better-paid deal, so is signing a deal with City really a win for Joe?

    C'mon Bryan, sign your contract!

    But i think, as someone else pointed out on here a few weeks ago, his agent may have advised against signing anything like that, as it makes him a less desirable target for teams than if he only had a year to run. Let's face it, what we think is realistic, and what other teams would think realistic would not be the same fee.
  14. The last beneficial thing he can do for our club is pull in a decent transfer fee, which £10m certainly is. I couldn't give a tinkers cuss that it's Cardiff - In fact, I prefer that he's out of our division (if this all goes through).
  15. One bright spot - at least Flint leaving should see the end of that stupid routine where he stands on the half-way line touchline for goal-kicks and Frankie attempts to put it on his head. Did that ever work, btw? I remember it creating a couple of good chances for the other team last season.
