  1. Vintage Pato - I’ve said it before about him he is far too inconsistent. The problem with it though is if he was consistent he wouldn’t be at Bristol City for very long. A great player on his day but his day is few and far between. It is what it is though - as i said if he consistently put in his top level performances a team in the Prem would take a punt on him. Its frustrating but you have to just accept that as a championship club you will have these types of player we aren’t alone in that respect.
  2. The bigger smaller club debate is so subjective - there are so many different variables. Stoke City have had more recent success than us but off the field barring the fact they have a huge wage bill and parachute payments we are very similar if not identical clubs. Very similar facilities (you could argue our stadium and new training facilities are actually superior to what they have) and we have very similar fanbases in terms of numbers. What BCFC really need is a long stint in the Premier league.. untill we do your Stoke City’s of this world will always feel as if they are the bigger club in
  3. Totally agree. It was always going to be the case though that these imbeciles would try and start the point scoring early on.. Everyone that wanted Hughton myself included wanted him for one reason and that was for the good of this football club. If and it is still a big if Holden and the current management team succeed in getting us into the top 6 (I genuinely feel anything else will be a failure of sorts - dress it up however you like but it will) then i will be the first to applaud the board for appointing them. All i and many others have ever wanted is the best for BCFC and not to poi
  4. Another good performance. Weimann deserves his goal - a typical performance from him hasn’t stopped running.
  5. Looks to be a great signing so far. I don’t think he will get us 20+ goals but he offers so much more and will be a good partner for Wells.
  6. Screen is just black nothing coming up. Absolute piss take
  7. Not on for me yet either.. has it started??!!
  8. He was a very astute signing. Proven and so experienced at this level.
  9. This for me. Palmer and Nagy really need to grab this opportunity by the scruff of its neck - i really want to see those two in particular do well this season.. the talent is clearly there. No disrespect to Weimann but im really not a fan - great work ethic but nothing much more to offer and Massengo I genuinely don’t feel is quite physically ready to play week in week out in the Championship.
  10. I don’t want him sold. He is a superb player IMO. He has just needed time to settle i think - definitely looks fresh and hungry for this season.
  11. Jury is still out for me on this coaching setup - they can talk well all they want but it’s results and results only that they will be judged on.
  12. Fam is proven at this level - proven strikers at this level cost in the most part a LOT of money.. the criticism Fam gets is ridiculous, as others have said he always puts in a shift for the team aswell so his attitude can never be questioned. Hopefully he signs the new deal and stays at City for a good few more seasons yet as like i said an alternative to fam will cost upwards of £10 million.
  13. He would probably thrive under a new manager in a different system. The boy obviously has talent i just don’t think it’s ever going to happen for him here.
  14. Ffs the kid has just turnt 19. Absolutely ridiculous to write him off yet.
  15. I don’t think Vyner will ever be good enough at this level. Time to get rid.
  16. Villa putting a lot of faith in unproven Championships players then i see. £28 million is a lot of money to pay for potential..
  17. A truly world class front 3 in Sancho Kane and Sterling but it all goes to pot after that. We will never win a tournament with that back four and Pickford.
  18. Top 6 for me. The owner has clearly stated this is the aim on more than one occasion now and the squad we have on paper is capable of that. Anything less would be a failure IMO.
  19. Very good signing. Fair play to Holden - these are no nonsense signings that know what the Championship is all about and will be ready to hit the ground running. I think as a club we have wasted far too many millions in recent transfer windows on bringing in players from European leagues that have either taken too long to settle or have just completely flopped.. sometimes you need to take it back to basics and bring in a bit of proven experience at this level. I was a big critic of DH’s appointment but these signings are positive.. bringing in players to fit a system, similar to how Cotts
  20. They are young lads - what do people expect. Give them a slap on the wrists and move on.. its the English press that get hold of these none storys and try and ruin player’s careers, how many times have we seen it over the years.
  21. I wonder what sort of medical we put him through? I don’t believe for one minute it to be ‘’quite well known’’ that a 26 year old will be retiring from the game in 2 years..
  22. He is a decent squad player. Never a starter in my eyes but definitely one to have in and around the squad pushing the likes of Fam Wells etc for their place.
