The cricketer guest commentator is annoying me for this game.

Same here. I switched over to listening to Gary Owers instead. The man knows his football and tells it as he sees it.

What an absolute pile of bullshit that statement is. What does it even ******* mean?

He’s saying that NP made that sub in anger and to flex his managerial muscles rather than making a sub to benefit the team !

What I'm disappointed at, is you'd think Nigel Pearson would be better at lifting morale after a crushing blow like Tuesday's loss. A vetran manager, you'd think he had the man management skills to lift players back up so they do, indeed, go again. Play to their best ability. 

But here we are, in a sort of last season death spiral again.

Against decent oppo admittedly, but the belief just seems to have gone from the side.

This is something worrying me.

Tuesday was gutting, but expected them to show up and fight today, even if we got outgunned.

Instead the team seem rudderless.

No expectations on results this year, but did at least expect something resembling performances, but so far we seem somewhat directionless.

It's not even crossed my mind to want NP sacked. But let's be fair, this football does stink. I dont buy the funds argument. It shouldn't stop you being able to at least compete. Look at Coventry,  Luton , hell even Blackpool are above us. It's a lazy argument. There's something deeper......

So what is it then? Because it's not just started under NP, has it?

Why not? He appointed him.

Words fail me. Are you completely oblivious to the financial side of the the club? Steve might ask who the **** do you think you are to expect him to keep paying compensation for old Managers and additional wages for new Managers to suit you? Another problem - it's a football cost, we haven't got a pot to ******* piss in and that means EVEN LESS for the new manager you propose to spend Steve's money on (because that's exactly who will be paying for yet another new manager to suit you).

0 shots in 45 minutes. 

Ashton and Johnson's fault 👌

Pearson and the squads fault.

Aston and Lansdown’s fault that the clubs is a ******* mess and staring down the barrel of a FFP shotgun.

Does that sounds fair?

Bristol City fans. So entitled….

we are where we deserve to be.

it’s laughable to think we can challenge in this league. Utterly laughable.

we haven’t got the players who are anywhere near good enough.

they’re mentally weak and have zero technical ability.

 

What are you on about you prat. 
 

Entitled? 12 months of shit football and because there is some moaning you are making accusations about being entitled?  You are having a laugh, or at least you might if you had two brain cells to rub together.
 

Can’t compete in this league that we’ve been in since 2014, and where we’ve won 4, drawn 4, lost 5 this season?
 

Mentally weak? Yawn. Zero technical skills?  Laugh. 
 

Very questionable management comment and you might be demonstrating a small amount of nous

One of the worst half’s I’ve seen from City in a long time. 

Don’t understand game plan or tactics here, it’s the first time Iv began to question whether Pearson is right man for job 😑 I’m not expecting much from this game, but similar to Bournemouth where the team just isn’t performing or putting the effort in.

Awful, awful, awful half of football from City, made worse by awful comms from Robinstv....Dan White is so twee and nice, Trego is not a footballer, adding nothing really.

They had no idea Pring came on at LCB and then that we went 442 when Simpson came on.

Back to the footie....Massengo all at sea in a ground as far from the coast as you can get.

Pring comes out with credit....that's about it.

Lucky its only 2-0.

Got to improve massively, or it will be a cricket score, which might suit Trego.

Please, please play better and maybe whack someone up in the air.

Shock horror losing to another parachute funded top 3 team, awaiting the typical OTIB meltdown. 

Meltdown that after losing Forest the Forest game in the manner we did - would have expected a  performance with a bit of character and to compete.

Hate to say it but we are a shambles all over the pitch and will be dragged in to a relagation battle.

Would love to be proved wrong.

Anyone else really miss the good times in League One?

Joking aside, they are levels above our players but I still wanna see us get a big closer and win more of the ball, we can't even get two or three passes together.

It's really ugly to watch.

Give me back the old Ashton Gate any day. Bristol Sport model is killing this club.

I really wanted this to work, but he’s taking us down.  Is Tanner injured, if not didn’t he learn anything from Tuesday night?  No problem with Pearson as a person but he has the worst record of any City manager in history, and it’s getting worse.  I admire those of you who are keeping the faith, I really do, but if we’re heading downwards then something has to be done.  Anyone got any better ideas?

I'm afraid the problems are deep and rooted in the failure to make changes when LJ was so obviously not going to get us into the play-offs. Now that was obvious to some of us long before others. I can't recall where you stood on that. But that's the root of the problem. SL clung onto his boy wonder until it was too late. Holden was an absurd appointment. Ashton was transparently not doing the job that was needed for long term success. All the treasure spent, all the time wasted, left with a threadbare squad that can't compete.

I can't disagree that we look a bit of a shambles but whoever manages us has a mess to clear up. Not an attractive job.
