  1. This precisely. A City player giving away 2 handball penalties in 8 weeks - outrageous and blatant stupidity.
  2. Yep this was it the shirt incident, Zak just laughed it all off.
  3. Ok not "always", but my point is 3 of our last 6 managers have been unqualified hires inside the Bristol City "family", and we've only had one successful external hire (Cotterill) in the 11 years/7 hires since Gary Johnson. What do our peers at the top of the Championship do differently to find these up and coming managers elsewhere?
  4. It seems the overwhelming clamour is for "a proven manager" and "a guy with multiple promotions on his CV". However I think this misses the point. If you look at the top five clubs in this division below, none of them have "names", they're all achieving success from investing in unknown entities. It can be an acceptable to go with a more "cost-effective solution"...but the bigger question is why do we struggle to identify managerial talent? I think the difference is Bristol City always goes in-house (Tinnion, Millen, Holden, Johnson's son...) and our consistent failure is the in
  5. On the contrary GT seems to nail insightful journalism by the right questions, then challenging the answers. Which part was unreasonable or sensationalist ?
  6. Mad that this is the most transparency we've had 3.5 months into the season, a casual rambler.
  7. Probably signed Brunt to come and turn a game upside down, but can see tonight it's gone horribly wrong...
  8. Given that it's Black Friday, and City are on Sky three times in fifteen days (Watford tonight, Reading Saturday, Blackburn 9th December), seems a good time to invest a 1-month NOW TV Sports Pass. Wondered if anyone has found any decent deals worth sharing with fellow Reds? Best I've seen is Currys £29.99 NOW TV stick though probably better options on Black Friday itself albeit after the Watford game. Also not sure about the red button? If we can still catch City outside these 3 games?
  9. Thought the same, almost looks like he's put on 1-2 pounds over the break?
  10. Could you name a footballer with worse balance then Callum O'Dowda? Literally every game I've seen this season he's gone full Bas Savage.
  11. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Obviously a sad day not just for Joe but us all. Couldn’t quite fully complete the pathway. Right time to move on for Joe and Bristol City. Manager has been first class in his honesty and understanding. Good luck for the season.

  12. Is that by default as the only midfielder we've had?
  13. This. Wells stated during an Instagram live last week that he categorically prefers playing as a lone striker, which I found candid - none of the "just happy to be playing" cliche. He openly prefers playing in a 1, with support. Trouble is I can't ever imagine a Lee Johnson team with one striker other than Diedhou, so something has to give...
  14. As much as I want Moore to blossom and prove himself a long-term foundation in a City back line - I viewed the most recent Blackpool highlights out of curiosity from their win on Tuesday against Bolton. The passage below jumped out why Johnson is still unconvinced on TM being a "top 6" Championship defender. He was caught ball watching - enabling a completely free header from a League One striker. As Johnson has said, if you want to cement a place in a Bristol City line-up, as bare minimum you need to demonstrate yourself as the top 3 in your position in League One. Fingers crossed the re
