Bristol City v Leeds United Match Day 35

Big crowd bottle jobs....

Nope, last season's efforts show that's not true. Just got done by a very athletic team, denied us any space and time, they excelled in quickly getting overloads all over the pitch, on at least one occasion Pato ended up in midfield with at least 3 players in very close proximity around him. Fammy was handled brilliantly by Johanssen. They caused us to rush and misplace the passes, so I would argue that they stopped us from playing well. Leeds are a good team and I daresay that we won't play too many like that.

Shame about yet another soft goal.

Why do we always have crappy first halves at home these days. What happened to coming out of the blocks with some intensity and belief. It’s a bit same old same old over the last 4 games at home - including qpr 

Well, today, the answer is that LJ was more concerned with the opponent than us - a criticism that has been levelled at him more than once. 

10 men behind the ball all first half even at 0-1. Once again left wondering what we could have got out of the game had we played the way we did in the second half from the off.

Always the bridesmaid.

We expected to get beat by the mighty Leeds and Bielsa .

Showed them way too much respect and good bye top six .

 

exactly this Major - very disappointing to only start playing after 70mins. Too little too late.

A few of the other results have slightly reduced my gloom..... ‘Boro losing and Derby and WBA both drawing. 

Same as last year....hoping for other teams to **** up as we can't get our own house in order.

A top 6 position was there for the taking this season

V poor first half, looked so unsure of ourselves. 2nd half we woke up slightly and at least put ourselves about a bit, despite the boos ;). But Leeds outclassed ultimately. Didn’t help that the ref fell for the repeated shithousing. 

In conclusion...

 

i ******* hate Leeds

Disappointing result. But Leeds are a quality side at this level. Streetwise. Managed by one of the best in the business. As we are neither of those things I thought that was a decent second half. Encouraging for the future.  Doubt we'll make the play-offs. But I'm happy for us to still be in the mix.

Tbf to LJ the players didn’t perform at all first half. I’m not sure keeping it tight and hitting on the break is the worst idea against a talented and strong Leeds team, but you need to be v organised and also be able to string a couple of passes together. 

Thought starting with Semenyo was a bad decision though particularly playing him out wide which carries a lot of tactical responsibility in this team.

Sorry why was it “there for the taking” exactly? This is a league where everyone beats everyone and there are plenty of teams both above and below us working with bigger budgets. You make it sound like we’re massively under achieving and top six should be a formality. Few of us expected to be challenging for the play offs this season and yet we’re a point off 6th with a game in hand. Today is a disappointment but the bigger picture remains positive.

If we are fortunate enough to get to the play offs............it will be a bit of fun, but c'mon we are no way the 3rd best team in this league.   On our day maybe 5th or 6th, but we are really 8th or 9th.  Which is still making good progress. as to where we were.  Leeds probably showed us today how big the gap is?   However if we did make it to the play offs, then I guess it's essentially knock out football, so who knows.   But if we arrived somehow in the Prem, we would almost certainly be one season wonders.........so a season or two more in the Championship is almost certainly how it's to be,  until we are hopefully ready?

I don’t disagree at 0-0 but at 0-1 it’s frustrating to see us sit back and let them have all the time in the world on the ball. No pressing, no energy, second to every loose ball.

He clearly asked for something completely different at HT which begs the question, why not actually try and impress our game on them from the off rather than acting like you’re playing Barcelona

It's not a pointless argument. It's a pretty obvious fact. We needed reinforcements to continue the momentum....but we didn't do it.

Who would you have bought in then?

We don't stand a cat in hell's chance of getting in the play offs. Five games without a win now, and a very hard run of games to come. We're also not scoring goals. Deja vu time...

Always one that make a comment like this.

Why ask ? He cannot give an answer because he doesnt have a data base and scouts at his disposal.

Professional football clubs do

We need to freshen up the crowd a bit . It’s a long old season. 

Too many take their place for granted . Stick some youngsters in.

I meant now. No one can say that how this league has panned out a top 6 isn't there for the taking. Lots of teams underachieving ...

What did he do?

Diving, time wasting, pretending to be injured when he wasn’t and just all round general shithousery. Same as Cunningham really.

I  think we should buy a new crowd.........or possibly get one in on loan, Palace's aren't bad.   Lansdown can afford it for **** sake?

Need to marmalise Ipswich in midweek. No game after that for two and a half weeks so we need to go into that hiatus having arrested this latest poor run of results. Frankly, I’d we don’t beat the bottom side at home then we can kiss goodbye any chance of making the playoffs.

Thought you were often on match day threads but maybe mistaken
