Flint Signs For Cardiff

Recommended Posts

I always said Flint was never the greatest defender. Needed a strong defender next to him.

That said, he did score lots of goals at the other end. So that made up for his odd defensive mistakes.

He would'nt get in the city team now and would be 4th choice (I have always seen Baker as a better defender)

But he was a very good servant and helped us go from a bottom half league one club to a top half champ club. So we should'nt forget that.

Amazing.  I remember one game where he was elbowed and punched in the face in separate incidents and did not retaliate.   Immense discipline from the big man.  

3-0 home win against Swindon. He was repeatedly fouled throughout the game. Got his own back with the legendary "No...No...No" comment afterwards.

Seen a few comments on this thread about how much being here meant to him. 

IMV a tremendous amount while Cotts was in charge.

Less so subsequently.

If ever a player suited a Warnock side it’d be Aden Flint. He’d do much better at Cardiff as opposed to Boro where he’s been, to put it nicely, dreadful.

I thought he had more class than that. Not read the thread through, I guess he has signed then? 

Well after this he can get a boo from me. I applauded him as a Boro player but he’s a shit Cardiff player now (if this isn’t a fake) so he can get the Cardiff treatment from me.

To me, that looks like the face of a bloke none too happy to be told to do the ayatollah for the camera. 

Still love the man for his contribution whilst at City. 

A true warrior.

Him, Reid and if his head is sufficiently right, Tomlin returning to AG should add a bit of spice!

Tomlin won’t make it past the new Pigsty concession.

There's only one club I really care about, and that's City. He was a great and iconic player while here and always gave his all - usually more than any other on the pitch, and that's what matters to me most. If he's earnt himself some more money and some bloke has told him to tap his head for a picture I couldn't really care less personally. Good luck to him... although not Cardiff as a whole, obviously!

Will get a great reception from me when he's next back at Ashton Gate.

Goals conceded:

 

2017/18 (with Flint): 58

2018/19 (without Flint): 53

 

I make that an improvement of five goals conceded. Over 46 games.

When Kalas and Webster had Niki or Frank beind them, they were generally solid; with Max for eleven games in the crucial run in from March, it was 15 conceded in 11 games, and just one clean sheet. That is a worse games/goals conceded than Flint and co over 46 games in 2017/18. Statistically worse than Flint and co in 17/18.

Ah yes, but they had rookie Max behind them, you say. Fair point.

But Kalas and Webster have not been asked to play here alongside, amongst others, Derrick Williams, Luke Ayling, Mark Little, RO'D, that crocked Swede, Korey at right back, the generally thought to be "not a full back/defender" and like Ayling "much happier in the other half" Joe "I'll be back in the left back position I vacated some moments ago just as soon as I can be bothered" Bryan, 

Unlike Flint, Kalas and Webster were not called upon to defend here in the chaos and disarray of Aug to February 2015/16; the chaos, disarray and toxicity of Lee Tomlin, post him signing permanently; the shambles of Diony/Kent Jan to May 2018. Non of this Flint's responsibility, all of it arguably impacted on the ability of the team to perform and stop the opposition scoring goals.

Until we can see Flint and Webster here together and Kalas alone (with Derrick Williams and Mark Little and Richard O'Donnell and a crocked Swede bound for the knackers yard. Oh, and Adam bloody Matthews) amongst the wreckage that was Bristol City FC in the Championship under Cotts, or Flint/Kalas and Webster trying to hold back the tide with modest support/minus Kalas (and a proper keeper; and a left back, generally where left backs should be), I don't see that we are comparing like with like.

We can have our opinions, but the crude numbers are 58/53.

I'd have any other team in the Championship get promotion over these *****

I get the feeling it may be a bit tougher for them this time out...

Hopefully it will be a bit harder for them , no going under the radar / outsiders (they are ex-Prem after alll and SHOULD go up??

I wouldn't be surprised if Neil Warnock starts Flint up front in some or even all the games.  He's got a phenomenal goal scoring record for a centre back in league 1 and the championship goal scoring stats with us were decent.  If he starts most matches up front with a manager who plays route one football then Flint could turn into one of those elusive 15 to 20 goals a season striker. 

That said, we may have got the best years out of him as I thought he would score more as centre back for Middlesborough given Pulis adopts a style that should also have played to Flint's strengths.   He got just the one goal and one assist last season.

Completely agree.

He shouldn't earn a living, pay his mortgage or eat because he once played for us...

What a strange thing you say.

Yes, but In shape though, apparently. Couldn't go with the rest of squad as he was refused a US Visa along with Madine.

Warnock has been known to get the best out of players with shall we say an interesting attitude though, albeit how often I don't know. Good example would be Taarabt.

How many did we score during the same period ? Our GD got worse . What a stupid comparison and waste of time . Why Are people trying to suggest Flint wasn’t very good , he left , he was mega for us in many  ways , we would have gone back to L’1 without him . He would play exceptionally well with Webster too . But he left , on a great basis . Why make idiotic comments to try and degrade one of the best servants this club has had. No need . There are 100 s of useless players we had over the years you can do that to if you need that release . 

Focus on the future .

they don’t need mortgages. A current city player bought my sisters house earlier this year for cash.

They seem very particular in the US, neurotic even when it comes to Visas even for minor misdemeanours it seems.

Dunno what Tomlin was in trouble for- eating over and above the limits of an all you can eat restaurant perhaps and it deemed theft? 😀 Madine IIRC was in trouble in past, can't remember what.

Yeah though they seem quite paranoid about these things.

I don’t think Bryan, Reid or Flint ever fully believed they could fulfil premier league football with Bristol City football club.

I can’t wait for us to get promoted next season whilst Cardiff and Fulham wallow in mid table 🤞🏻

Tomlin was in court not so long ago for gbh and was found guilty?

they don’t normally let you into America if you have a criminal record
