Good streaks

Recommended Posts

A good little snippet on the Championship page of BBC Sport today about our good run and 5 City players scoring for different EFL clubs yesterday: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51344082

Streaky Johnson strikes again

They say momentum is huge in football and there's probably no manager or head coach out there who exemplifies that more than Bristol City boss Lee Johnson.

A club record eight successive league defeats in 2016-17, nine wins in a row across all competitions last season and now four consecutive victories without conceding a goal for the first time since 1990.

Saturday's 1-0 success at Queens Park Rangers has also kept "streaky Johnson" and his team firmly in the promotion race, cutting the gap to the top two to five points.

Famara Diedhiou scored the Robins' winner in west London - and was remarkably one of five Bristol City players to score for different EFL clubs on Saturday.

The Ashton Gate outfit have numerous players out on loan across tiers two, three and four, and many of them were among the goals.

Liam Walsh scored Coventry's winner against Bristol Rovers, Tyreeq Bakinson netted in Plymouth's victory over Newport, Jonny Smith grabbed one in Oldham's 3-0 thrashing of Bradford and Sammie Szmodics scored a brace as Peterborough hammered Ipswich 4-0.

One Bristol City player who didn't score, however, was Nahki Wells.

The Bermuda forward came off the bench to make his debut against QPR, the club with whom he spent the first half of the season with before being recalled by Burnley and subsequently sold to City.

That’s weird, I was just about to post that being “streaky” in this league is a good thing. Most of the clubs struggle to string together anything more than 3 wins or 5 game without a loss, Johnson’s team seem to find that easy. 
As for “strings of losses”. We have only lost 8 league games all season. How long is a piece of string anyway?

The fact the BBC are linking to Bristol Live stories says all you need to know about the BBC these days 👎🏼

As we often complain we don't get enough national coverage, maybe a good thing for once.

What has players out on loan got to do with our recent run against teams all lower than us in the league. If you are not aware we are in the championship and hopping for at least a top six finish.

Agreed. Further down the article it states that Scott Hogan 'averages one goal a game' for Birmingham after making his debut and scoring for the blues on Saturday. Completely pointless fact...🤔

It's getting tougher to beat teams above us in the table - there's only 5 of 'em!
