  1. Brilliant post. I appreciate that trying to get a team promoted from the Championship is not easy but we just keep making the same mistakes. Our wage bill has doubled in the last 5 years and we are going backwards so something isn’t working. If I was Steve Lansdown I would be looking at our peers such as Brentford and see what they are doing. Okay we may not be able to replicate it 100% but it seems a good starting point. Not at Ashton Gate we have the Del Amitri plan “nothing never happens no nothing at all - the needle returns to the start of the song - and we all sing along like before”
  2. Ever since then we’ve been going backwards. For some reason Johnson abandoned the high tempo game which I appreciate you can’t play week in week out. But we’ve just become a negative team with no identity, it always feels to me that we are looking to nick something rather than go out take the game to the opposition. Let’s appoint someone who wants to play football, at least try and start threatening the opponents goal.
  3. Well said @Fordy62. Let’s be honest as I said least week Holden is Johnson 1.1 I’ve seen nothing since Dean has been in charge to suggest that we are going to do anything this season other than finish mid table and play pretty negative to football to achieve that. We might nick the odd goal but were never going to take teams on and dominate them. I don’t expect us to play like Brazil every week but give me something to get excited about Dean, you promised us that Dean now go and deliver.
  4. I’m afraid Holden is start to look like Johnson 1.1. For me nothing much has changed, Dean promised that we would have a go at teams and playing attacking football I’m afraid that’s just not happening. I think we have goals in the team but we just start most games negatively we only go on the offence when we go a goal behind. I wasn’t overly excited about the appointment of Holden but was prepared to give him a go, however if we continue playing like this I’m not over excited about getting back down to Ashton Gate. Come on Dean give us what you said you would do, I know we can’t play attacking
  5. Enter the code on the main site not the app. I did the same but then went via the site and it was all okay.
  6. Hi Dave I assume you are mirroring using Apple TV. I want to do the same for my Dad but he doesn't have Apple TV, just want to check I'm not missing a trick.
  7. I have just had the same, a refund of £22.34. Not showing on my card yet and nothing posted on Bristol Sport website. Looks genuine to me. I guess there will be an explanation sooner or later.
  8. Sad news. RIP in Norman. Like @Davefevs said I remember going into his sports shop on The Gilda with my Dad to buy a City kit and new football boots.
  9. I’m afraid the Torquay game is off as they share facilities with Arsenal - https://www.borehamwoodfootballclub.co.uk/uncategorized/urgent-club-statement/
  10. Spot on SX, I’ve been saying this for ages. We playing the majority of our passing football in our own half and put ourselves under pressure. The knock on effect is midfield come deeper to try link up the play, the opposition know this and just squeeze us and wait for the mistake. I assume Johnson can see what is happening but he doesn’t seem to be able to stop it happening. Let’s be honest we didn’t lay a glove on WBA today same at Leeds. Poor Wells must think what he has signed up to, he was running around today just trying to get into the game. I know fans keep say
  11. I agree with much that has been said here. Two years ago we were swashbuckling, so exciting to watch, now we are so dull. Lee clearly felt we couldn’t maintain that tempo throughout that season (17/18) and we all know how we fell off the pace. But now the pendulum has swung so far the other way it’s so boring. I appreciate we’ve had a few injuries but the philosophy seems to be not too lose and as a result we are narrow and we pass it around the back with little intent. To play at home against 10 men for nearly 30 minutes and not have a shot on goal speaks volumes to me. Come on Lee let’s
  12. Palmer did struggle today but I feel that is mainly down to the midfield being so ineffective. My main concern is we don’t transition the ball well through midfield. How many times today did we pass the ball around the back four only to go long into the channels as we couldn’t create anything in midfield. In my mind this has been the problem for a while it was more noticeable when Pack was playing as he would try and come back to get the ball moving through the midfield. Maybe we’re missing the likes of Nagy or Smith to break it up and be a bit more combative in midfield. Whatever we nee
