ps - thought cov were good and their fans were noisy throughout .. fair play to them. 

Agreed. I thought Cov gave probably the best home atmosphere I’ve witnessed this season. Very loud throughout. 

I actually think it was their noise that subdued our fans. Due to their close proximity to us, and that they were continually loud, nothing got sparked in the away end. 
 

If it was about who made the most noise in the concourse we’d win hands down. Loads of singing pre game and at half time but for whatever reason, as soon as people went upstairs to their seats they lost their voices. 
 

Pretty embarrassing vocal support to be fair, given the numbers.

I thought their fans were top class and put us to shame. I am trying to think of a louder home crowd for quite some years.  During the game I had the same feeling I had after the play off defeat, when again the atmosphere was so poor - do we really deserve success as a football club when our fans often can't be bothered to make any noise!?  Even in the first half we had throw ins in good attacking positions and there was no roar of encouragement at all. Maybe we just know by now that our attacking throws often just result in the opposition counter attacking!

Two positives from today

the jackets potatoes sold in the little van besides the stadium. 
 

The fact we left after that last goal and got back on the m6 within 10 mins as the Cov stadium stayed full I assume ..

The Balti pie I had in the ground was great.  Best of the season so far.

It was such bad defending. To completely miss read the ball down the line was bad.

But then he could have sorted it with his pace by simply running the correct way.

It shouldn't take years of high level professional experience at centre back to know what direction he should be running there.

This squad reminds me of a set of musicians in an orchestra as they warm up. Everybody doing their own thing  making a right racket. 

Normally a conductor (the manager) comes along, smacks his stick on the lectern and everyone shuts up. He then wafts his stick around and some pleasant tunes are produced. 
 

The problem with our bunch is the conductor waves his stick and they continue to make a right din doing their own stuff. No tunes, just loads of random sounds.

I’m beginning to think our ‘musicians’ are just frauds unable to play a tune at all, let alone form an ensemble. 

If ever there was a perfect musical match for Bristol City FC 2020, it would have to be the 'legendary' Porstmouth Synfonia.

Here's their somewhat distinctive take on 'Also sprach Zarathustra' which certainly bears some comparision to most of our performances this year. Perhaps it could be played as the walk on music for Blackburn...

Just watched the 'highlights'.  The players are so powder puff and uninterested its criminal. They have no heart, no passion and no desire.  I find it hard to believe that as a collective they can be so weak.  The third Cov goal was ineptitude on a different level.  I cant help but think some of this is deliberate on the part of the players - I really am getting to that stage of believing this is purposeful.

That thought crossed my mind that last season but there were other reasons as so many were going to be out of contract. If that is the case this season the we really are doomed. 

The lack of crowds and toxic atmospheres last season meant they had it easier, hopefully they won't get such an easy ride this time around.

No this mob is much better than our players, at least they can blow their own trumpet!
