Rotherham (a) – Sat 12th December 15:00 – What Can We Expect?


Recommended Posts

Pushed off the ball far too easy. All the good work done against Blackburn pissed up the wall today. Absolutely dreadful. Players need to take a hard look at themselves after that shite. That simply isn’t good enough. Shameful display.

The thing is even though I am a season ticket holder, I'm not actually missing the football

I've even stopped buying the game to watch now

Sounds like I didn't miss much.

Feel exactly the same,don’t think I would be rushing to watch this even if I could, same old, same old,but are we surprised?

I thought he fell for a lot of soft free kicks for them, but no way did he affect the result. We were 2nd best all over.

If only. We weren't even a close third best. Even the annoying 5 year old on the Rotherham matchday staff was better than us :(

We've got a desperately average squad and injuries have given it a distinctly cobbled together look.  Never how you'd want it looking that line-up, but there is not much else. 

I said pre-season mid-table beckons and so it does.

Play the youngsters perhaps? 

If we finish lower than Lee left us then it's massive rethink. Ta-ta Deano. And please Mr Lansdown, get your son and mates to step back and appoint a competent board.

You mistakenly think I wanted Hughton Mr P. I actually was hoping for Paul Cook. We can’t continue to appoint from within. It cuts down the chance for innovation and fresh ideas.

Fair buster. Cook would have been an interesting appointment, think he could've done well here.

Wigan had a nice mix of physicality and yet at times good possession. I think there were some possible issues with his contract, release clause and general availability but I'd have had Cook certainly.

I can accept loosing and don't like it, but cannot accept when we have been dominated by a bottom of the table team on a bad run. We don't seem to have any pattern to our play, strikers playing as wingers who look lost. We have got away with a few performances this year and been saved by Bentley, but today its caught up with us.

City haven’t played well for a long time now under Holden. We have had some “lucky” results in games IMO, in games we could easily have lost if it wasn’t for Bentley who is player of the season so far for me.

Worried as it feels like Johnson Mark 2 to me.

Dodgy internet connection or long term Coma?

Neither. It may not be the worst result in terms of goals against, but in terms of our performance against an out-of-form team that are very mediocre it was completely dire.

There were no saving graces to it. Nothing to give any hope. 

If you spotted anything positive, please let me know.

Couldn’t agree more. It’s like the footballing ability is being coached out of the players again.....sound familiar?

Drop the wannabe hoolie act, son. It doesn't suit you.

You're a total embarassment. I have seen your posts on here for weeks. You try and take the moral high ground over fans who just want the best for Bristol City. 

Today was a totally unacceptable, pathetic performance in which tensions are rightly high, yet you come on here solely to bait. 

Go support the Gas or a Northern team, Northern Red

 Rather simplistic that, Mr P. Forest had problems already that we didn't have.

The simple fact is that we don't know how Hughton or anyone else would have done.  However it appears Pau Warne can get a team with under half our budget to dominate us.

I agree with @2015 that this isn't the worst we've played this season, it is one of the worst games for several seasons.

I'd expect them to be in and around Coventry say RR. Yes they lost their first 4 and that's a big handicap but it's a squad that was one game from playoffs last season.

They lost players, notably Cash but at the same time, brought in players ie Knockaert, solid Championship performer in Lyle Taylor.

I didn't expect them to he surging up the League but at same time, assumed they'd have been lower midtable by now.

Agree with the rest of your post though.

DH said in his pre match interview "We know exactly what type of game we will get against Rotherham.". So your plan was, did it work, if not why not. What are you going to do better next time? You have 24 hours to tell us your answer.

It's a good point well made. I do wonder if DH has managed to convey that fact to the players cos all the signs are that he didn't.

And who can forget ‘Halford’ Gate. Most annoyed I’ve ever been at a game and that’s saying something! 

got to be the dirtiest cheating football pantomine event ever, even city fans were clapping Halford because they thought he was seriously injured, 10 mins later, up he jumps and sprints off, no surprise Colin was the Manager

Whatever.

Stick to defending racism, you're better at that.

Very poor performance today but the criticism of Dean Holden is unreasonable.  Nearly completed half a season and we are four points off automatic promotion to the Premiership.  That's no fluke.  DH had done brilliantly given the injuries and the blooding of young players and so far we haven't gone on a streaky run of losses - we tend to bounce back.   We have Walsh and Williams to come back and maybe a signing or two in the January window.  So a lot of positives and a lot to look forward to and still very much in contention for the play-offs.   The more than healthy position in the table means DH deserves backing not negative sniping.

They hadn't won in 6 and lost the three games before playing us. They were in awful form.

Holden's dream start to the season has us seventh when really it's our form that is lower midtable.

We miss Weimann much more than his critics would acknowledge IMO.

But even with the bad luck of injuries, DH still doesn't make decisions that give me any confidence whatsoever in him. He really doesn't inspire me at all.

Agree on Weimann. All-round package of some goals here, some assists there, energy and versatility. We could absolutely do with him now!

Moreover, he'd help with the current wide forward issue, probably bit more cover defensively and better ability to combine with Hunt in an attacking phase.
