Only on OTIB I see negative comments after a win, can people not pretend they are a happy for once.

It’s become a habit

Weimann proved me wrong today: great performance.

Glad to see us winning again: do the same against Stoke and the table could look much better...

 

I'm not surprised. Even back in pre season in Florida, it was clear that Deano is a big fan of Andi. He even said to me that he wouldn't be surprised if he was our top goal scorer. Unfortunately LJ couldn't get that out of him

Sorry City USA, not having a go at you personally, but the use of superlatives is so overdone in language now, it is silly.

Weimann had an average to good match today. I would not say that any City player was "great" today. Efficient, organised, solid, hard working come to mind. I am pleased for the win. It wasn't easy against the long ball, long throw in Warnock methods but we stood up to it and took a good proportion of our chances.

Did anyone else think that Boro' looked a far better side after he made changes like taking off Shotton, the long throw specialist, and replacing him with smaller more creative players. So perhaps old age is affecting Warnock's match planning. Hee hee!

All the players played well, Baker and Kalas were immense facing up to boro's only tactic - bombard us with long throws from Shotton who for some reason COLIN took off. Assombalanga had one kick all match but he scored.

On to the next one, who knows?

Please, anyone suggesting Holden permanently take a moment to realise that the performance and W is down to backing the quality players we have to play their game alongside a basic level of tactical plan and discipline. Scientific shackles off - play football. 
 

Yes, he’s done a good job, but Guardiola he is not. If you’re excited by what Holden can do, imagine what Hughton can do.

No need to apologise, this is a forum where everyone deserves an opinion. I was just trying to point out how effective man management can be. When a player has the trust of his manager it usually gets a response.

I don't think any media have asked him yet. 

He was asked and he said “I respect the question but I’m just focusing on the next game and preparing the players”

Fair play, I missed that. Just played a straight bat on Radio Bristol, saying this game can bite you on the backside if you take your eye off the ball. He has all the sayings.

Be funny if we got Colin sacked for a second time this season.

Balls to that, I'd love it if he got them relegated. If only to dampen down the hero worship that some of our fans have with him.

Great assists by Weimann and  excellent finishing by Wells and Paterson.

Could have (should have) won by more.

Clean sheet would have been a bonus.

 

I was just going to add that Weimann linked up very well with the pair of them. One of Nahki’s best games in a City shirt I thought.

Playing with no pressure , a clear game plan and against a couple of poor sides it is good to see the players enjoying their game and getting success . Drawing convoluted conclusions would be dangerous . Just play the last 3 like that and get some positive vibes again .  Then the serious and short time to focus on next season With the new boss . 
 

ps . What has Pato been eating ! Smarties ?

Excellent performance. We totally dominated and the one touch football was sublime.  For the first time in ages, we looked like a team that knew each other.

A couple more performances like that might earn Dean Holden the top job.  No coincidence that we put out a fairly settled unchanged team.

Our run in is good compared to the team's above us, so a win on Wednesday may have me thinking the unthinkable.

It's not hero worship but just due respect for what he has achieved in the game.  Some need to remove their blindfolds, grow up and file their unfounded negativity in the bin where it belongs. At the end of the day what manager since Alan Dicks have we had that comes anywhere near Warnock. Answers on the back of a postage stamp please.
