  1. Only just heard this unbelievable result so looked up the match report: JUST AS I SUSPECTED: Rovers broke through with a freakish opener. Josh Hare's long hopeful punt forward ballooned backwards up off defender David Atkinson's head and over his keeper Johnny Saltmer, and Daly nipped in to touch the ball over the line. ... Sam Nicholson which took him into the box, the ball broke kindly and he slotted home. Eight minutes after the restart, the lightweight Daly won another penalty when he went down very easily under a challenge from outraged defender Tony McMaho
  2. It seems Robbored has a bit of a penchant for mentioning Pennyfather occasionally, and especially likes adding him on at the end when he's listing former City players for whatever reason. A quick search of OTIB shows Pennyfather only rarely crops up in threads, the last time before today being September 28th by.......... Robbored. 'Well......I’m no coach but I could see almost immediately that he was either trying to hard to impress or simply out of his depth. He didn’t seem to have any idea as to what he was supposed to be doing. Szmodics was one of only four or five players wh
  3. Good luck Cotts. What a fantastic manager he was for City; none could have been better at galvanising the club, reinvigorating the passion of the fans, and creating an unrivalled spirit and winning mentality in the dressing room. Good luck to Shrewsbury too - when the fans see his determination and enthusiasm they'll soon warm to him and love the attacking football his revitalised team serves up. I'm confident they'll soon be on an upward trajectory and I'll be watching their progress with great interest. #WINNER.
  4. DH on Joe Williams. *Did not come to the club injured. *Got injured on his first day. *Did a light session and just felt something. *Picked up a little niggle and he's not recovered in expected timescale. Absolutely extraordinary. A fit player 'picked up a little niggle in a light training session' and we're now looking at 4+ months out.
  5. That's what I thought about Walsh. Any idea on Williams?
  6. And a few observations from me. We know Williams arrived at City already injured, do we know exactly when his injury occurred? Has it ever been stated whether Walsh was injured while at Coventry or in training after coming back to City? With those 2 facts we could ascertain whether Walsh really been out injured for so much longer than Williams. Either way, both are taking an inordinate amount of time to regain fitness, presumably not their fault, and City have form for sticking by injured players and renewing contracts if they rate them or feel loyalty towards them - Korey
  7. Another relatively small change (but they add up) which is gradually spoiling the game for me. For instance when Sheffield Wednesday play at AG I expect to see them in their traditional blue & white stripes, not some grey or yellow strip that could be anyone. Home shirts should be worn away from home as well unless there is an obvious clash, anything else is devaluing the game as a spectator sport.
  8. I'm not sure how many of our players do have 'City in their blood' - very few I'd have thought, but, injuries not withstanding, the more they play the more they are likely to appear to settled and content to be at BCFC. If Walsh has not been given some assurances that he can continue to progress his career at AG by getting runs of games to impress - a reasonable request imo. at this stage in his career and after such a successful loan - then you'd imagine the player's best interests would be served by a change of club and that is what his agent would be advising. My feeling is that W
  9. Why do you say that - some insight, or - as your previous posts suggest you don't like/rate him - wishful thinking? I hope your prediction is wrong anyway.
  10. Strange question. I pay £500 into Bristol City every season. Of course I'm interested in the fitness of the players I'm expecting to watch, what their problem is if they're injured, and the timescale of when they should be back. That to me is normal communication from the club. Steve Allen took things one stage further and made a point of explaining things in detail and got great credit for his openness on here iirc. There's no need for the current vagueness and prevarication bordering on secrecy from the club which just frustrates the fans and leads to some of the speculat
  11. Good points raised here. Not sure Holden himself is being dishonest but you highlight a fundamental change in the club's approach to keeping fans informed on injuries. From being as open as we've ever seen under Steve Allen - almost to the point of too much detail - to the exact opposite now.
  12. Sounds about right, but are you sure about the date?
  13. That's exactly what Joe said, he didn't even need to think about it.
  14. I really can't see Cotts lowering himself to take the Rovers job. He may feel it would be putting one over on SL to go there, and then do well, but SL aside I think he has far too much affection for BCFC generally, and City fans in particular, to even consider it. He's far too good for them, of course, and, after his years at AG he's now an honorary City fan who probably dislikes them anyway. I'll be surprised, and very disappointed, if he demeaned himself by even contemplating such a disastrous career move. Short, sharp, and to the point - tell them to **** *** Cotts.
