Is he one of those that phones up after listening to it on the radio? So therefore has an opinion based on someone else’s opinion 

Nah, RB phones him ... they like their regular contributors - otherwise no-one would phone in ... they make sure he’s available after every game to spout his trash, even though he doesn’t go to the games ...

They call him Waffleflap ... he doesn’t call them ... RB relies on its regular ‘pundits’ otherwise they’d have little or no callers ... 🍷

The guy who phoned in from Millwall (someone who actually went to the game) was classy. Good points made, no bullshit, no showing off. A great call. Respect to that man. Forgot the name, I only remember it was two initials.

I'd happily never hear from Ian again. The bloke gets right up my nose.

1st win in 6 games for Millwall, worth thinking about. We are the king's at ending bad runs for other teams 🤣

Yes.

Hasn’t it always been so …. was it Palace in around 100BC, who hadn’t won a game all season until they visited The Gate in December, all served up to the nation on one of our few appearances on Match of the Day?

We weren’t at It tonight for some reason, maybe a hangover from Saturday’s massive effort, but the fluidity wasn’t there from the start.  Some decent passages of play, but also a lot of mistakes.  Awful up front. Bakinson a mistake waiting to happen, COD totally anonymous, sick note Baker broken another toenail, and who knows what’s going on with KP, another of those random performances.  Some real positives also though - James and Williams great midfield partnership in the making, defence looked solid except for that single misjudgement from Atkinson who was otherwise excellent, Bents continuing good form, JD outstanding and Pring another battling solid performance.  We are just 3-4 players short of properly being able to compete on a consistent basis.  Real shame that Benik was in blue rather than red…

This game. Honestly.  Just one little piece of competence will decide this. 

Perceptive!

This game has been an average force meeting a mediocre object.

One of my favourite posts ever. I'm gonna use that time and again and claim credit for it...

Show some respect. That's the best manager that Bristol City have never had that you're talking about there.

Ask him, he'll tell you himself. In fact he'll tell you even if you don't ask.

How dare you? Didn't you know he once was lectured to by Arsene Wenger? I do. Because he won't stop bloody going on about it...

 

What a Championship mid table game! At times we had them under immense pressure without creating anything, but two mistakes in one dumb minute lost the game.

Never again should we play two players with 'inson' in their names play together. 

We're very average and the team we ended with was rag tag personified.

We're so obviously lacking up front. Where will the goals come from seemed a stupid question after a few games but now has become pertinent. 

Martin and Weimann combined have 1 goal in 5. The same as Baker and Bentley combined.

I thought Williams was a huge positive and he, James and Massengo could be an incredible trio if they ever play together (let's not assume!)

It's early doors for the Pearson era and we have to accept the odd annoying loss this season.

I can't wait for the next period of squad refurbishment!

Have seen the penalty back as was at the other end and it’s very soft and can’t quite decide if it’s even in the area or not. Was annoying as it was just when we were getting on top and then fell apart after that would most likely have been a 0-0 game otherwise  but they say these things even themselves out over the season so maybe that’s repaying they qpr luck we had 

Didn’t even realise Wells had dropped out as the game was crying out for him to come on and instead we got a Palmer off night

Absolutely hilarious comment. How many "proven" strikers were available in the last window and how many of them were in our price bracket?

No real need to make a remark like that was there really? 

It was just my opinion, I have no idea on price brackets, only that I am bitterly disappointed we seemed to be financially hamstrung going into the season.

That being said I am thankful that we haven’t “done a derby/reading”.

Happy?

Quite excited to see what a midfield of James-Massengo-Williams could do.

It does seem as though this combination could be exciting, but there is a problem. None of them are regular goal scorers. James has only 10 league goals in his career,  Massengo 2 (none for City) and Williams also 2.  They’ll probably run around a lot and be creative, but who is going to be on the end of their creative passes? A lot of blame for lack of goals is being placed on Martin and Weimann, but that’s only part of the problem. Goals have got to come from midfield and, to a lesser degree, from defenders. City haven’t got goal scoring midfielders / defenders in the team. (Weimann could be counted as a midfield player who scores a few, but he’s currently playing as a forward with Martin)

We are now stuck in traffic, we have done 10 miles in nearly an hour and a half since leaving the ground. Got caught twice in traffic nr Hammersmith queueing for petrol and blocking the road and now motorway is down to one lane because of roadworks.

After sitting through the match tonight this is not what we need.

Without sounding dramatic, I think that's one of the worst games of Championship football I've been to; not just from City but from Millwall too. It felt like neither team were ever going to score from open play and there was a real lack of urgency and quality from both sides. I took a couple of mates with me who are neutrals and I feel bad asking £28 for the tickets.

Our midfield move the ball far too slowly and Martin was ponderous up front. I think we really missed Massengo tonight who seems to be the only player who can really move us up the pitch quickly. The only positive moment of the evening was Afobe clapping the City fans and putting his hand on his heart. What I'd do to have him back in the side!

I live in London so was back by 1030 but I feel so sorry for all the fans who travelled to watch that tonight. Utterly tedious. Our football after the goal was dire. We looked patternless and punchless. 
But I’ve been saying it for weeks - we are so dull to watch.

Got hit by more detours around Reading due to roadworks, 3 hours since leaving Millwall and we are halfway between Reading and Swindon. It's been a long night
