  1. What sticks in my throat is that Marvellous Marvin with first on a Twitter trying to bask in the shared glory of the Bears European Win, then sticks the boot into Bristol Sport by ‘isolating’ Ashton Gate. We all know he’s a Saghead, but a bit blatant favouritism showing its hand (again) here. Surprises me he hasn’t built his favourite team a 30,000 stadium paid for by Bristol taxpayers. Probably was all lined up under the auspecies of Bristol Energy - who had a tent at The Swamp - but then went belly up before they could deliver the stadium. He’ll now probably ‘hide’ the deal in so
  2. He’s still got many ‘credits’ for me. However, if he persists with the LJ ‘answers’ Pato, Andi and CoD, the tried, tested and failed, then those credits will rapidly be lost.
  3. and therein lies the problem with our ‘gang of three’ - CoD, Pato, Andi. All been here for ages, really would like to love them... but I still don’t know their best positions, who they can form a partnership with and why they appear to be so consistently, inconsistent. At some point you just say we cannot build a midfield or a team around any of them. Just rip it up and start again.
  4. In defence of Taylor Moore, after such a calamitous and embarrassing error, he did continue to play football and not hide, which many other players would have done. He seems to have cut out his ‘charging bull’ impression ( the highly dangerous habit of running up the pitch at full speed with the ball and then losing it at the half way line). Let’s hope he also learns from this mistake. He has potential and is worth sticking with at present (we ain’t got anyone else anyhow!).
  5. Was that before, or after, the even more fantastic 9-0* scoreline away at Spurs? * to Spurs.
  6. iPad here ...... and it was friggin useless. No doubt, little point complaining to Bristol Sport (as, indeed, seems proven from the posting above).They must know issues are being experienced by users. Good customer care would be to contact people and provide credits. They won’t - to a degree understandable because it’s tough times for the Club but it’s tough times for the customer too. So for me, that’s it with BCTV/Robins TV whatever it’s called. Off to Sky Sports for £18 on a monthly renewal, despite me wanting to support the Club directly and hating Sky.
  7. Having now watched Holden’s interview, think he had a very similar take on events. So assume you’ll level that accusation at him too. Nope, personally remain positive. We were second best at home to Boro. Disappointing, but we learn and move on. We also have some quality replacements available and the youngsters, no doubt, will be told to up their concentration levels if they want to retain their places. If you want some positives from last night, thought Vyner was very decent, Bents (bar that rather unhelpful pass to Moore) sound, Mawson great and Kalas seemed fit and slot
  8. I don’t think the team performance was ‘terrible’, although there were a few diabolical errors and well below par individual displays. It was all just a bit clueless, lacking any plan, cohesion or real spark. Not quite as bad as a LJ performance but going down that route. A real oddity though the passing back to Bentley in the 96 minute from the free kick was just bizarre, get the different ‘angles’ argument but Bents was so far in our own half the defenders had ample time to read the flight of the ball while in the air. We don’t want to revisit the negative back - sideways patter
  9. Looked class. Seemed to me he hyper-extended with a slight twist. That’s a classic knee ligament stress. Be amazed if we see him back but fingers crossed.
  10. Would have been interesting if we had put Palmer in behind the two strikers tonight early in that second half, I was thinking to myself, as Pato and Andi ran ever-decreasing circles to nowhere. At least it would have given the Boro defensive midfielders something to think about instead of them smoking their cigars thinking we’ve got this wrapped up. Who else can can we use in that role with a bit of creativity, physical presence and a goal threat?
  11. Cotts was someone that character-wise at least was from the Warnock School of Management. He wasn’t very successful though was he Anyhow, Holden’s doing good ...the key now is how he will deal with Saturday. Onwards and upwards.
  12. There’s lazy of thought and lazy in physicality. Bakinson was worrying me in the first half as he didn't look 100% on it, 95% maybe, but that’s not good enough. He needed to be 100% when he received that ball in the second half near the half way line and wasn’t. Moore wasn’t lazy physically he just wasn’t totally switched on mentally to the situation he found himself in. That’s ‘lazy of thought’ in my view but if you want to call that ‘misjudgement’ so be it. Young players, yes. They need to learn though and quick. Expensive mistakes at any level, particularly the Championship
  13. Well. Warnock did a job on us there. Totally sussed us and delivered the perfect game plan. Completely stifled our attack, nullified our midfield and waited for a mistake from our defence and we duly delivered. Two really shocking lazy moments from our youngsters. Saw it coming from Bakinson in the first half and that’ll be the last time we see Mawson because of it I suspect. As for Taylor Moore, we always know that he has that in him unfortunately as otherwise he’s sound. Suppose that’s the risk you take of playing youngsters... Bakinson needs to learn big time from that, Taylor Mo
  14. Bakinson. That was a really sloppy ball that caused that. Poor. Thats Mawson out with an ACL for the rest of the season.
  15. Need to be a bit cuter in midfield for me. All to easy at the moment for them to snuff out our attacks. Andi and Pato need to step up here, start getting involved and link thinks up to give Boro something to think about. Backnson needs to concentrate on passing and positioning. Could go either way as Boro are a tidy outfit.
