Bristol City v Swansea City Match Day 5

Recommended Posts

Having no lifeboat when the ship is going down must be one of the most lingering 'end of my life' feelings. Slowly watching the vessel submerge itself with only a life jacket, not a shoreline in sight and in cold seas.

I am thinking of those who have experienced such a moment right now as I ramble on and say to all you fellow brilliant Bristol City fans, following our club through a little bit of treacle but mostly very runny vinegar, to take it away, take the match day and make it yours today. Mine is not the sinking ship but a washed up metaphor of it for another time.

Up the table.

Planning to watch on BCTV later.  Feeling a bit more upbeat following a better performance in midweek, but the Swans will provide a much stiffer test.

I guess LJ will not want to tinker with a winning formula too much other than to bring in the new CH in place of Eros alongside Webster with Kelly at LB and Hunt on the right.

I'm enjoying seeing a keeper who comes for crosses, comes out of his box and can kick a football in between the touchlines for a change.

A midfield of Watkins, Brownhill, Pack and Eliasson?  Or will we try a 352 formation?

Probably Andi & Matty up front again and now into game 5 of Fam's spitting ban.

All may depend on the fitness of one or two with knocks.

A win would propel us right up the table, but I would bemore than happy with a point today.

Think Swansea will suit our style today. Two decent footballing teams, it’s just whether we can hurt them in the right areas and when it counts. They will punish us no doubt.

I’d like to see...

                            Maenpaa

Hunt            Kalas        Webster        Kelly

        Brownhill      Pack       O’Dowda

        Taylor         Weimann      Eliasson

 

 

Or maybe a 352 as LJ mentioned it in the preview...

                          Maenpaa

            Kalas      Webster      Kelly                    

Hunt   Brownhill   Pack  O’Dowda  Eliasson 

                    Taylor    Weimann

3-0 loss. Swansea are gonna run rings around us unfortunately.

So I've written it off already and to cheer myself up tonight, I've got the Youtuber boxing paid for (my son is a massive fan) and I can't stand Jake or Logan Paul so I'll be hoping they get battered into next week. :boxing:

Before Kalas was signed I would have feared for our defence as McBurnie would have caused us problems but assuming Kalas goes straight into the side I’m a little more hopeful of a positive result.

They are not a bad footballing side and play a similar style to us so it should be a good game to watch. Could go either way so would take a draw

Looking forward to seeing Matty Taylor today.  Thought he looked sluggish v Boro, and despite his goal and hard work v QPR I thought he still didn’t look sharp.

LJ mentioned in his presser that he thought MT had got the rustiness out of his legs on Tuesday, so i’m Hoping to see more from him today.

Play like we did in opening 40 mins against QPR and we will be 3-0 down by HT. Play like we did for rest of QPR game and who knows, longer we can frustrate them, the better chance of nicking something.  

Overall though got to be expecting home win.

Since when father? I must have missed that! :dunno:

I’m usually optimistic. I knew we’d beat United, thought we had a chance v City, but have a bad feeling about today. Maybe it’s that 7-0 still in my mind ? Hope I’m wrong.

It’s fair to say, we’d better score with our starting eleven because there’s nobody to really give us extra firepower on the bench.

Three defenders in six outfield subs does seem a touch excessive.

No issue with the team, but we should have a striker (not Pato) to change it if need be.

(Waits for O’Dowda to come on and bag a hat trick)

Saw Baker and Kalas get off bus...didn’t see Moore, and not sure about Walsh.

Safe to say Walsh got off the bus I think now Dave

Seem to be three defenders and no striker (guess LJ counts JP and COD as attackers). If Eisa is fit that is disappointing.

Smacks of 'better not upset the big characters'.

Does it suggest an attacking start and then defending the lead approach?
