  1. Just a thought - we’ve seen he can shoot, we’ve seen he can head the ball and get in where it hurts - he doesn’t seem to be getting his tactics / effort right when playing in the middle - so how about trying him up front. I agree with other threads that it’s too early to be thinking of moving him on - but has he found his best position?
  2. And if you compare the simple tactic David Moyes has employed - play players in their best position and make the plan clear - life becomes so much easier! When Scott Murray played we knew what we would try to do to score a goal - I have absolutely no idea how we plan to score these days - apart from Eliasson! Please get the players to do the basics well and give them a strategy!!
  3. To me is seems there may be more truth in the Palmer to Swansea rumours and that LJ believes Paterson’s attitude is better than Palmer. The problem is that Palmer played really well when he had Afobe to slip the ball through to, and if, hopefully, we get the striker or two we are all hoping for, will Palmer start playing well again? It’ll be interesting to see how quickly we can bring in the striker(s) and then decide which of the abundance of midfielders we let go!
  4. I was there as well, standing on the half way line in what was the ‘safe area for a 14year old! Best bit was my cousins were Rovers fans and we were going back to their house afterwards! They didn’t want to let us in! Keith Fear definitely scored from a Ray Cashley punt - and I’m pretty sure he got another - can’t remember the other scorers A good day none the less!
  5. Once we took the lead the players seemed to think the best form of defence was defence - but we all know we can’t defend against teams constantly attacking! it was only when they scored their second goal did we seem to try to attack again - why can’t we continue to attack when we are in the lead! The best form of defence is ATTACK!!!!!
  6. I’ve gone to the Luton thread and it’s showing City
  7. If you listen to Ashley Williams post match interview - he is clearly equally frustrated with the lack of quality in the final third. He mentions, correctly, that the defence and Bentley did their jobs but it’s what he didn’t say about the final third - you can read his thoughts about that. For far too long we have been very very weak in the final third - and too many ‘attacking midfielders’ don’t have the confidence or ability to drop a shoulder and shoot from distance or look for that killer pass. We need two strikers, minimum, in Jan - but we still need some quality in the middle of the pitch!
  8. To combine a few comments already mentioned - we get around 20000 fans each week; the stock levels are embarrassingly inadequate, the size of the store is not fit for purpose - and do we need a physical store ... I guess the reality comes down to “Do the club really want a store?” Do they value their fans enough to invest in a quality store which provides sufficient supplies ALL year round to cope with demand? Fans want to sample stock, check sizes (I can be anything from a medium to an extra large) and ‘see’ what they are buying rather than have to return items on a regular basis. Come on BCFC if you are serious about supporting your Fan Base create a much BIGGER and BETTEE store that can cope with demand and the 20000 fans who attend games each week. In my 51 years of coming to Ashton Gate I have never known the store to be as poor as it is today and over the past few years! This has been probably the worst affect of having Bristol Sport rather than just Bristol City in one store!
  9. Total waste of a thread - why even suggest such a thing with the team doing the best we have done for many years.. Yes the football isn’t always the best but a few years ago pretty much everyone would have been delighted to have been looking up all the time and not down. Why can’t the Mods stop this kind of unnecessary posting!
  10. Not injured - thank goodness - just checked the ROI twitter page and Callum and Hogan miss out on the match day 23! Gives him a rest before Saturday!

    VAR

    It seems to work sooooo much better in Europe! the reason ..... Refs go and look at the screen on the touch line and still make the final decision. players rarely argue with the ref and the time taken is significantly less than we are seeing in the Premier. Come on Premier League - do it the same way ......... please!!!
  12. The biggest problem with VAR at the moment is that the Ref is not using the ‘available’ screen at the side of the pitch. If he obtained advice from the VAR studio, and then consulted the screen, it should still be up to the match official whether or not he went with the advice given in his ear. In that way he would be able to use the on field ‘feel’ to help him come up with HIS decision. I just can’t understand why our Refs in the UK are not using the screen at the side of the pitch where in Europe they are. Just doesn’t make sense!
  13. I would totally agree -definitely the League game, and Shilts was the goalie. Cheesley was never the same, even when he tried to come back - a real shame as a great talent!
  14. Just listened to GJ’s post match interview where he confirmed that Janneh was present at Torquay today and City had pronounced him fully fit. He is to join them on loan until Jan as City may consider him ready for the first team squad by then. Loan deal to be announced on Monday .. Good luck Saikou - it’ll be likely he will go straight into the team as Jamie Reid pulled his hamstring late in todays game is going to be out for a few weeks. Be interesting to see how he gets on ....
  15. I remember it well - very wet and windy!
