Bristol City v Preston North End Match Day 17

Recommended Posts

The enigma of Greg Cunningham...

 

Knocking up a MDT today and I'm puzzled as to what we shall discuss. Then I spot this beauty on Twitter: 

A parody account that I believe is associated with a certain OTIB member (@Olé) made me sit up and giggle.

After the whole Bristol City Twitter account being ran by toddlers saga, this was a bit of light refreshment and I thought it worthy of sharing here.

 

Mr Cunningham is currently winning with 82% of the vote, probably because of the sour grapes he threw at us when he moved 'oop Norf'. But why did it go the way it did? Why does he not receive a warm welcome upon his AG returns? Adomah gets a clap, Flint gets a clap, even Coley Skusey gets a clap and he's been at Ipswich for time. 

 

Let's delve lads and ladies...

 

Now before we begin, it's worth mentioning that Gregory is no longer with PNE. He did a 'Bobby Reid' and joined forces with Colin earlier this summer. Expecting his big PL shot, according to Wiki, he's played thrice. Firstly, against a loss to Norwich in the League Cup and then again in the 5-0 drubbing provided by Man City. Finally, he was also involved in the 2-1 loss to Burnley. All the other times, poor old Gregory has kept his bum warm on the Cardiff seats. Oh dear...

 

So anyway, young Greg joined us ages ago and was a talented defender and dressing room character. Most infamously, he was nobbled by Marlon Pack in the Head2Head quiz. The result should have been a draw (Marlon gave an incorrect answer and then corrected himself), giving him the win. Greg was not amused.

Anyway, Greg decided to ply his trade at Preston when we were in L1. Rumour has it, the contract was dissolved by mutual agreement and Greg left on a free with a year left on City contract even though most media sources say 'undisclosed'.

So, in the main part, who can blame the lad for wanting to further his career and get a few more bob? Most City fans accepted this. Until this happened...

Blood. Fire. Young Gregory has ruffled the man mountain Aden Flint in an off ball incident, knowing Aden likes his barnet pristine. Aden blew his lid and Greg was lucky he wasn't swallowed for supper. A red card and 3 match ban later for Flinty and Greg is the latest Judas for the AG faithful. He joined an exclusive list including Colin, Ian Hollowhead, Pulis, Tomlin etc...

 

So now PNE is a Cunningham free zone. But this is always a scrappy game. A barrage of cards and a 2-1 loss back in March this year and I smell the same again today. 2-1 loss. Weimann to score our only goal.

 

Bloody northerners...

 

COYRS.

I’m going 2-2 last minute eisa equaliser with about 14000 in attendance (although the club will announce it as over 18k)

And the clubs twitter account will be as cringeworthy as ever

Awful weather, poor form and they’re our bogey team. Add to that the fact they’re bring about 600, won’t be many more than 15k in attendance if that

Whilst looking at the table would suggest their form is worse than ours, City do have an uncomfortable knack of letting poorer teams look like world beaters and against Preston we have a very poor record. I can see the Northerners heading home very happy tonight and us continuing to struggle (at the moment).

Hope I'm wrong though.

I looked and saw Preston 2wins 4 draws from last 6 games= 10points; Us 2 wins and a draw = 7pts; so their form over last 6 is better than ours 🤫 so draw it is then.

Looking at subs today I would have started at least 6 of them

Player who was dropped after a few poor games not back in the team, shocking.

Yet ones who were poor last week stay in. Shocking.

AW is a better player imho than Taylor. However he and FD just don't seem to play well together. Hopefully that will mean they both score to show how little I know.

Kelly had been out of sorts for a few games, making a few errors in each one since West Brom.

I notice Paterson was finally dropped but you didn't comment on that at all, what a surprise.

3-5-2 by the looks of that team?

We've been asking for it I suppose.

Hoped to see Adelukan on the bench but maybe not ready?

But surely a better bet as the left sided centre back position than sick note, uninterested Baker..

Yes, my mistake but my point on Kelly is if anything reinforced.

Paterson, a player out of form not put back into the team immediately.

Baker is more experienced and Preston are a side that, in the last few years, have had players using some of the 'dark arts' of football.

I like Kelly, but can understand picking Baker over him today.

Good to see niki back, max has a lot of potential but he doesn't command his box well and isn't as good as the big finn yet... 

Interesting line up, especially putting 3 in midfield which is good, overall I'm more positive after seeing that

He’s clearly not first choice, if Nikki is fit. Obviously!

LJ has gone for a bigger more powerful team. Not much more to it.

Compete in midfield, win the ball and get some seconds going forward. 

We give up soft possession and soft goals, this is his way of trying to stop that. I can see a red card today!

If we’d won our last 10 games and everyone was saying how well we’ve been playing recently, I’d understand criticism of a formation change. Since we haven’t, I’m willing to give it a chance.

I'm not so sure why people get so caught up on formations? The only thing set in stone is we have 3 cbs on the pitch. 

Formations are so fluid during a game, we could start as a 532 and then switch to many variations of the 352.

532 352 always makes me laugh. They are effectively the same. 

Walsh suits this apparently according to LJ. Hopefully he is right. 

Again todays team is as much about power and strength than anything.

Yep, I'd put forward going 3-5-2 beforehand, although would have had Kelly instead of baker and Taylor instead of Fammy, but at least good to see us trying to do something different. Plenty of bench options if needed.

Kelly on bench again ffs.

Jay Dasilva is a better player than him currently. At the very least he is in better form.

There's plenty of time for Kelly, expect big things, just be patient.
