Flints header - image

Recommended Posts

Quite literally the only player tall enough on the pitch to have been able to clear that. Absolute top class defending.

According to the Torygraph (no, not my paper of choice but it's the cheapest way to get a bottle of water,) it was REID with the miraculous header off the line.

I guess they're similar in appearance....

ha ha, 3 foot in height, skin colour and tattoos, apart from that, separated at birth. ;).

Thought they were both fantastic last night, along with the other 9 hero's on the pitch.

One of the best pieces of defending I’ve ever seen

A Banks / Pele moment

There was a mass gasp from those around me and looks of complete astonishment

What a defender , what a man

Just how good has he become , improved month by month , week by week in his time here

 

Flinty - you are everything I admire

:worship2::clap:

Well, it is MY paper of choice (certainly no apologies) and you're wrong - it definitely says Flint made the header

Do you think I make these things up?

Maybe a different edition then - here's the quote from this morning's paper

I'll ask my mates who work there but strange they'd have two reporters covering given there's hardly anybody left in the sports room these days. Mine was credited to James Ducker, Northern Football Correspondent and his copy is wholly different from yours.

He had to duck to avoid taking the crossbar off !

I honestly think that could be one of the greatest goal line clearances EVER.

If that was Pique/VVD/Otamendi et al that did that, we would see it repeated every day.

I love flinty and didn’t want him to go in the summer, but was sceptical that he’d be good enough. He’s proved everyone wrong, the guy is a beast and appears to be one of those players that just grows better and better as the team around him improves.

i don’t want him to go but I would now love to see what he could do in the prem, hopefully we’ll take him there

I met Flinty at a private work function recently and speaking to him after at the bar, he is also a bloody nice guy who loves Bristol City! Will take a BIG offer to drag him away but I fear he is now in the headlights of the premiership head hunters!

What a player!

I think he is someone who thrives on pressure and being pushed. He has constantly made steps up in quality. He was already an excellent championship defender last season but has continued to make massive improvements this season. Whatever the ins and outs of the potential transfer in the summer it has ended up being one of the keys to our successful season. 

We signed Baker as a replacement and the fact it all dragged on meant we kept Mags until it was too let to loan him out. Two of our back four last night are only here because of how the transfer played out. 

Add to that if Pisano is fit we have 3 CB who are exceptionally good at this level. I think this has (amongst other things) driven Flint onto another level.

I saw that, obviously no copy readers these days, as it was contradictory...........

“Flint sent one clearance straight to De Bruyne, whose shot was expertly tipped over by Fielding, but the Bristol defender was his side’s saviour moments after Reid scored. Sterling was put through and looked to have drawn City level after chipping the onrushing Fielding, only for Reid to acrobatically head clear on the goal line.”

Same credit here - I guess we have different editions (I'm in Devon) and at some point a copyeditor made the changes

Is that picture on your cupboard wall - for when the man himself is not in residence?

Ive said this on another thread.

Watching live my first thought was that Flint had punched it over the bar, so expected a neatly and a red card. Could;t believe when they showed the replay that he had headed it over. 

Absolutely amazing defending and typified the teams' performance last night.

Great photo. Is it an official photographers photo or a screen Shot (too clear ?). Well done whoever took that.
