  1. 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 have a bit of the football from the 17/18 season I know we can’t play like that week in week about but it’s nice to have a go sometimes and make their keeper have something to do. Finally, how Elliason doesn’t start ahead of COD baffles me.
  2. 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 need to sort it as teams just sit back and wait to catch us on the break. Maybe I’m reading all wrong but I would love to know what are plan was today as we didn’t seem to have an answer to the way Wigan played against us.
  3. Ref was a complete clown let too much go in the first half then booked Pack for a foul which was nothing more than a free kick. I didn’t see much wrong with our disallowed header and then a strange decision towards the end which appeared to be offside but the linesman wasn’t even flagging. I appreciate referring isn’t easy but some of the officials just make it hard for themselves.
  4. I thought Swipe Station was introduced at the ground so you could pre-order and pay for drinks at the same time. I'm not sure if it is still working. They did an announce it when it was first introduced - https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/ashton-gate-trials-new-click-collect-beer-service/ Seems like a good idea - if it works as suggested.
  5. Totally agree @Nibor he didn’t attack the ball enough when we had Stoke under the kosh in the second half. For me he just doesn’t show the strikers instinct of predicting where the ball will be. I hope Fammy proves me wrong but I think he is a long way off a 20 plus goals a season striker.
  6. Totally agree. If we lose the likes of Reid Flint and Pack and continue to recruit as we have done over the last few transfer windows we are really going to struggle. To be fair I thought we would struggle this season so hopefully I’m wrong but it just feels like we are on the slide.
  7. Can't believe they are going ahead with the game. Main roads may be fine but side roads are a complete mess. If it is on tomorrow I might walk but don't fancy taking the car, parking could be a nightmare. I hope the club don't make a big mistake and end up panicking and calling it off at the last minute.
  8. Like your glass half full attitude @italian dave but a balmy 3 will feel like -1 with the wind chill, that snow won't be going anywhere soon.
  9. I like your optimism @pillred but the forecasts I've seen are showing 3 degrees but with wind chill feels like -1 tomorrow at 3 pm. I think whilst the pitch may be okay surrounding areas will make it difficult to put the game on. Quite rightly the club will be concerned about fan safety and that will be an issue tomorrow particularly if we have more snow.
  10. Just noticed that Sunday’s game is confirmed as a beamback. Hopefully that should please a few fans based on the lack of tickets. Doors open at 11am Not sure if it is a good thing though as we’ve not been at our best for beamback games, no better time to but that to bed. I would absolute love to do the double over Colin. #COYR
  11. 10th or so which at the start of the season I would have been more than happy with. I know there is plenty of points to play for but I felt we had to win today to start a decent run, we’re currently 18th on current form. Not making the playoffs will be very disappointing based on the form we had shown before the start of the year but looking quite likely I’m afraid.
  12. Totally agree, so wanted to get Arsenal we could have really given them a game. The way Arsenal play now looks so laboured, obviously a great side a while ago but the game seems to have moved on but Wegner hasn't.
  13. I totally agree Spike we are relaying on dominating possession and quick passing through midfield. The problem is when we are not able to do this we dont seem to have another way to play . I really think we need another way of playing otherwise teams will stop us playing in midfield, making us pretty ineffective. Alternatively we get someone in midfield who's able to create something when we are under pressure. Clearly Johnson wants to dominate midfield I'm just not convinced we have the players to do that. I wish he would consider going wide more to create space even if players are just making runs wide to create space in the middle.
