Bristol City v Preston North End Match Day 17

Recommended Posts

Feel for Weimann and Hunt. Hunt isolated on the right and no options. Weimann might as well be playing where Pack is. The only one trying to get on the ball. Has Walsh too far forward. Getting crosses into Fam but no one else a threat. Push Pack and Brownhill forward if you want to do that. Fam trying but not coming off. Just been absolute rubbish from them. Really disappointed in Pack and Brownhill today. Worst by a large margin imo. 

To be fair to everyone they look lost. Like this formation was told to them an hour before kickoff. Idk how we change this today. Preston much more energy and actually have pace on the pitch. Everyone seen this coming though. This is going to be a long international break

As I said, fairly reliable, not 100% guaranteed accuracy.

I'm struggling to recall many injury issues, other than him being subbed during a game for one two or three times, when he was usually fit to play again the next match, so even then it was a precautionary measure.

As stated before, there was the concussion at Brentford, but the 2 games or whatever it was he missed after than are an enforced precaution because of issues that can come up after a concussion, Baker could have been fully fit and recovered, he wouldn't have been allowed to play though.

 

 

Presumably you have a long list of injuries he has had while here though? Otherwise you have nothing to stand on with your response. 

Not going to get into a protracted argument about an injury record. I trust my memory that he has missed a fair few games since he joined

2 red cards in 72 games for us, one of them when trying to make up for a mistake by Flint.

Not even had a booking this season. But yeah, a red is definitely likely... :facepalm:

Should have been sent off the other game and a number of other times he's been lucky. Nearly caught player first half in this game which would have been red. And very bad disciplinary record at Villa. But more important than that he makes mistakes.

Our pace of attack is far too slow. By the time we get near the box PNE have had an age to get 2 rows of 4 in front of us. When Preston win the ball back they run at us with pace and have created several chances already. We could be 3 down at half the time but for some poor finishing.

That was as bad a performance as you’ll ever, ever see. We haven’t even created a half chance.

The one positive is that the 2nd half can’t be any worse 🙄

THat's 4 goals in five and a half home games.............since we somehow scored 4 against Blackburn. We have become predictable and clueless, and LJ seems to have no answers.

Oh good. I come on to find out the score and I see posts like this. I’m going back to the Rugby. 

What is the score by the way?

That really was horrific..... 

You would think he was setting up a team to face Man City.

We'll have to chase the game now which will suit them.

Completely agree. No pace to our play whatsoever. No-one running at them at all. Not one of our players providing a threat to them.

City are very easy to defend against. Every attack end with a cross into the box for Fammy. Zero variety or creativity

I've never been less enthused to go to Bristol City in my life than I am watching these bland amateurs. About as much personality as beige wallpaper

Had to miss today, hasn't bothered me at all. That team is pathetic. There is absolutely no creativity or pace in that team. Why the **** are we worrying every week about the opposition rather than focussing on us. Worrying about 21st Preston? You couldn't make it up.

I saw someone describe Johnson has average further up. I wish he were that good. ******* clueless.

Are you really saying that Baker has never missed games through injury during his time with us James?!

No.

I didn't say that at any point.

These are just the first three from Google. There are more.

Sorry, but Transfermarkt is just incorrect on this occasion.

Exactly, worried about the opposition far to much and tries to outsmart them. Rarely works and he has to end up changing things when sometimes we look half decent and give the other team problems which is too late against good teams who can soak up the pressure

You could copy and paste our performance week in week out. 

It’s becoming a little tiresome. 

I'm not so sure, that first half was particularly special.

International break coming up, perfect time to ditch LJ & Holden and bring Moyes in. If we stick with LJ & Holden we only have a relegation battle to look forward to.

Dream on.

You said in a previous post on this thread that Baker hasn’t had a single injury since joining us and you included a link from the Transfermkt website to back up your claim...

Sadly BCTV started to work for the final 20 minutes and I am assuming that those pathetically shite 20 minutes were wholly representative of the whole 45 minutes.

So here goes, I think I can safely say that if we are looking for the worst player on the field the 11 players in red and white would be the fist choices, absolutely shocking, clueless, aimless, leader less, I have no idea exactly what the tactics are, but long hoofs seem to be the main tactic.

Just to pick out a few superstars of crap, Wiemann who has developed the touch of Woger from the life of Brian, Diedhiou who has spent his usual amount of time on his arse or taking up piss poor positions, Pack yet another shocking performance.

No not at all, I am saying that he has gone away from what he believes in.

Thanks for the clarification, but it still seems to me like you want it both ways.

As a start the "Johnson only uses 442" is a myth (Not saying you are saying this, but explaining my thoughts). A good chunk of last season we went 4141, Fulham away we did 460, but more than that we are fluid in  formation during games, there will be a shape we line up in at the start and for goalkicks, which is generally 442, but during phases of play it regularly changes.

I used Transfermarkt as a reference and stated they are fairly reliable but not 100% accurate...

If he had been inundated with injuries with us, there would have been at least some recorded on there. I have even mentioned multiple times that I recall seeing Baker go off with an issue.

Well off the top of my head I can remember Baker missing two consecutive games last season through injury - Sheffield Weds at home and PNE away - then he cane back for the Burton away game and struggled again...
