  1. Could he be a Bobby Reid Mk2? Has to develop a 7/10 and above consistency which has always been his problem, but has the skill set.
  2. Never doubted you Pato son. Can we we send the rest of our non-performers to Derby for 6 months?
  3. Didn’t think he did much before scoring either. Hardly a LJ ‘busy bee’ sort of player, although ticked the physically lightweight and small boxes. Obviously has some talent and knows where the goal is but having watched that I feel less cheesed off about not having him here tbh.
  4. Had a Grade 1 ACL strain of right knee (football) followed, just after that had healed, by the left knee (tree cutting/ladder). Full recovery seems to take around 18 months until completely pain-free. Still got a couple of months to go for left one. The more physio I had the more it hurt! I just went for the ‘rest’ option. Being an oversized, oldish bloke I wore my ‘ACL Badge’ with pride. The novelty wore off after a short while though.
  5. As the January Window comes towards a close with us having released our misfits, didn’t happens and so forth, the only thing now I want The Club to do is get a Director of Football in. A football man, somebody who cuts through the crap whether it be weasel words, analytics and the like. Someone who can spot a decent player, one that defines a system and buys players to fit that system. Interesting debate about MUFCs woes last night on BT. Said that their CEO very good at raising finance but useless at identifying players. Young, inexperienced manager with them too. Owner interested in cash side more than the football. The solution? A Director of Football. Parallels? Last Summer’s window and the re-signing of CoD just demonstrates to me, we haven’t a ****** clue.
  6. Attacking, forward-thinking teams. A pleasure to watch and even better that they are successful - even if it’s at teams like ours expense.
  7. Agree. Cracking game. Hats off to Wolves. Feels like a lifetime ago we played that game at The Gate. Power, pace and passion. Simple game Lee. Why is it never us?
  8. They might want to move the bus stop closer to Ashton Gate. If they make that momentus achievement with the Council/Opertors it doesn’t necessarily mean the bus will stop at it! They regularly fly past the stop located at The Cumberland Basin stop when they see football supporters waiting. If I was Steve Lansdown, I’d rip into this pathetic excuse of a mayor and embarrass him on the national stage. Think Sir Steve has a greater media platform than some jumped-up politician. We could start with the investment Steve’s made in Bristol, the PR, the income generated and then turn to the dear ‘Mr Fix It’ Mayor. Highlight the 1000 space park and ride that stands empty next to the stadium during matches and has done for the past decade while local streets are congested with parked cars, the new multi-million pound Metrobus ‘service’ that takes in as many congested roundabouts and the most tortuous route possible from The Centre to Ashton Gate and has no stop next to the Ground and no buses that stop for football supporters, the railway next to the Ground that has been derelict for decades and when planned to open doesn’t has a stop for an entertainment venue that is the largest in the region ...and on and on. Oh, nearly forgot, to cap it all off and make access to the Ground virtually impossible by any means ... the proposed diesel exclusion zone taking in the biggest open area in Bristol with the least impact on residents health ..unsurprisingly being the key access road to The Gate. Seriously, only a bitter Mayoral Saghead who wants to prevent City achieving anything could come up with such crap.
  9. After signing, 6 months in for assessment, if not first team squad ready then 6 months loan, then return. Inclusion thereafter in Under 23s.. We wonder why our team, seems to be a collection of individuals rather than a cohesive unit. The fact we send out younger players out to all points of the compass, hundreds of miles away from their future playing colleagues may have a part to play in that.
  10. In LJs defence, I genuinely don’t think he wanted him back from his loan. Certainly didn’t want to play him. Think this might be the old chestnut of interference from above in order to save buying another striker and promoting home grown youth. ... and another Manager who might be having a hissy fit. Who’s right and wrong, I’m not sure. Certainly, Semenyo from what I’ve seen has done little to demonstrate he is any where near ready at least when he’s played in a City shirt but, as others have said, is that through bad coaching and/or not playing to his strengths?
  11. Think it might be a good idea just to try chucking him out on the pitch and saying ‘just go out and enjoy yourself lad - given ‘em hell’. I was sat in line with him at that Reading match, he looked like a rabbit caught in headlights. I think he’d been given so many playing patterns, formulas and responsibilities to process he had brain fade. Simple game...... ball in the opposition’s net. Go.
  12. Well we did play ‘All ways look on the bright side of life’ following our last relegation, much to SoDs annoyance. Maybe our entry to the pitch could be accompanied by the Flying Circus’s theme tune. Very apt, as we currently have no idea what is going to be served up, who will take the lead role, who’ll be the clown or who will put on an Oscar winning performance. Would give us a larf anyhow, and probably create a better starting atmosphere than the one we have currently!
  13. I think that’s the past tense now. Swansea is now the preferred destination for Chelsea youngsters according to yesterday’s media reports.
  14. ... and that concludes the case for the prosecution m’Lord. There we have it, as clear as day follows night, no clue as to what identity means, let alone what it is. This is explains why there is no coherent transfer strategy, cohesion on the pitch. It’s all totally random, made up as we go along.
