Soccer saturday

Recommended Posts

Honestly makes my blood boil.

 

start talking in depth about how the championship, who's equipped to go up, who can challenge etc and none ONE mention of Bristol city at all. No mention of our form our position or anything. Pundits mentioned every club around us, even teams like hull and villa that seem to have blown their chance yet could even mention us...

As much as I'm happy we're  going under the radar, it's ridiculous how we get zero acknowledgement at the very least of the position were in in the league...

I get what you mean but I’m happy if they don’t mention us at all until we are safely 4-0 up in the play off final.

I randomly ended up watching a bit of it for the first time in ages this morning. We did get a mention in the quiz thing towards the end as the only team who haven’t lost a game yet this year.

We’ve done a bit better than “haven’t lost a game this year”..!

It makes me laugh, the form we're in, any other team , Derby , Villa, Forest, the media (tabloids too) would be all over them like a Sainsbury's suit !  I'm not saying they don't like us, because for that to happen would be to acknowledge our existence !

I wouldn't worry about it, typical big team bias. When we make a play off place a mathematical certainty then they'll have to acknowledge us...

Until that time #undertheradar

I'm not worried about it, I just think it's poor, sloppy journalism. ANY team who wins 9 on the spin, what ever league surely  deserves some praise?

They did a 5 minute feature on City at 13:58 including an interview with LJ and Michelle Owen then the panel Esp Matt Le Tiss bigged up City and Steve Lansdown got a special mention for keeping faith in Johnson

Little old Bristol City wouldn't even get a mention if we were slapping Barcelona about in the Champions League.

I'm not bothered that we didnt get a mention. Very happy for our form to be going under the radar or not get the credit it deserves - especially from that shower of shite of a programme. Same god awful jokes churned out series after series. Absolute dross.

We'll likely get a ton of coverage tomorrow. Wouldn't be surprised if many of the Sunday papers run articles on us. Our match v Wolves is far more attractive now than it was when drawn. 

Eg. Looks like Henry Winter is already in town.

He does seem to like us. 

Also, Mark Watson was on 5Live's Fighting Talk this morning. I've not listened yet but he'll no doubt have mentioned us a couple of times. If anyone's desperate for some coverage  then grab that podcast!

It's about what time you watched, about 12,they showed the interview with Johnson then had a long discussion about us and our current form

How on earth do people make out we are going under the radar, just because tv like to big up the so called bigger teams and not give us a mention doesn’t mean we are going under the radar, do people really think  other teams haven’t noticed how well we are doing and it’s them that count not the press,.Under the radar,😂😂😂

So we did get a mention then? Quite a big one? And Talksport talked about us and LJ loads on Thursday lunchtime...

Lots seem to want to be ‘under the rader’ Then get annoyed when we aren’t...strange times...

Let them keep talking about how great Villa are....... Shows up how bad they are actually doing with the players and money they have spent. If Villa is still getting mentions they really should be getting torn a new one on there.

Are they saying how great Villa are? On Soccer Saturday they’ve mention several times that Villa have the worst defensive  record in the entire EFL......

We got a few seconds on Football Focus. Martin Keown said he would be at the Wolves match. Trotted out some generic crap about how well we're playing - clearly doesn't have a clue about us.

Colin Murray remains the messiah for his actual knowledge of Championship football.

We don’t get points deduction just because Paul Merson hasn’t mentioned us. I wouldn’t get wound up about it.

It's not that we are under the radar, but that Merson probably thinks we are still in league 1.

Henry Winter is one of the best around.

He is that rare thing among football journalists these days, someone who knows and cares about football outside the big name clubs.

Though as an aside, Julien Laurens, who you would think wasn't aware we existed, had some good things to say about us towards the end of Thursday's Totally Football Show podcast.

Watched football focus, and actually though they were going to finish the programme without mentioning us at all - mention of Bristol City ( and Wolves!) seemed almost an afterthought, jammed in at the end.

Dan Walker did, of course, ask the pundits about how impressed they all were with the job Frank Lampard is doing at Derby, but without mentioning how impressed they were that FLDC had fallen behind Lee Johnson's Bristol City in the promotion race!

Taken from the BBC website report Villa v WBA, looks like it's the worst home record in all 4 divisions. Not sure about division 5 though!

 

With top scorer Tammy Abraham firing blanks for once, Villa were well beaten as their total of home goals conceded this season rose to 32 in 17 games, the worst in English football's top four divisions.

There's 2 teams in the Championship with worse.

 

Worst defensive home record is a different thing.

Have they? “Villa have the worst defensive record in the entire EFL?” - based on what? Goals conceded? If so, they are incorrect...

Edit - I see that @JamesBCFC has been admirably jousting with the forum troll over this point already....apologies for sticking my nose in!
