Re: The very latest in Clement In/Out Polls

IN - just. As mentioned above. We are scoring and playing periods of good football. But he isn't identifying our problem areas. Freak goals and basic mistakes have cost us many times this season already. Individual errors are at an all time high. This is not Clements fault. BUT it is his job to deal...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

I should know but where has Martin Kuhl gone? Apparently pursuing a coaching role closer to his home - least that was what was said when he left Torquay in July. Perhaps Aaron may still be on Torquay's radar as it was a fairly serious injury (MCL) he picked up while on trial with Aldershot so he ma...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Ipswich Town (h) sponsored by Orlando Sa

I think Baldock-McNulty as a pair could be very good True we can play lumps up front, but we haven't had a PARTNERSHIP for quite a while now - nothing remotely like, say, Long-Hunt and they weren't exactly giants Both were pretty decent in the air tbf. We need some aerial threat up top, just as an ...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

I still have to watch the second half of the game against Bristol but the feedback on Rinomhota seems really positive. Hopefully he's the real deal and not just another Kuhl or Tshibola. It comes down to attitude at this stage of their careers as they clearly have ability. I liked the look of Kuhl,...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

3 points and 3 goals will take the pressure off on paper but some serious words need to be said to our defence. They all looked to have a poor game at the back and better teams would have punished us. Am I the only one thinking Moore isn't as good as everyone thinks? Meite goal was well taken though...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

Would imagine a fair few Bristol City fans will do this which could lead to serious crowd trouble. More blood on Club 1871's hands. More blood? Did I miss something or did the Millwall bloodbath that was predicted by a couple on here actually happen? We all know the only fans thicker then Millwall ...

Re: Bust up between Clement and Barrow

I'd love to know what he did. Just from a pure "what's serious ènough to drop for 3 games but not serious enough that any journalist could find out what it Is?" point of view. TBH our journos couldn't find out whats for dinner let alone whats going on behind the scenes. Finding it rich co...

Re: BFTifollow Swansea

Right now we are 100% in a relegation battle. I think we will survive because there is just about enough quality in the squad but I think a different manager will be responsible for actually getting us over the line, to be instated shortly before Christmas. We will finish 20th again. We are not in ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (h) sponsored by a plea from Terry Cooper

I'd go 5 at the back and park the bus. We need points desperately and if it means playing ugly then so be it. A clean sheet will do wonders for the team. 1 point and being shite is far better than trying to play good football and actually being shite. Unfortunately parking the bus will require some...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (h) sponsored by a plea from Terry Cooper

Out of interest how many would call it desperation and/or castigate Clement if he tried it and the team lost? I have suggested this before. In a 5 man midfield, in possession it would allow full backs to really push up while he sits as a 3rd CB. It would be ideal if it works or another shower of sh...

Re: David Meyler - Reading's biggest ever mercenary?

I am at the belief that all our midfield can play at this level but need someone out there directing them - when to push, when to hold, position them at set plays offensive and defensive. No one in the middle has a voice and heads drop so quick when its not going smooth. TBH i am not sure there is a...

Re: Bust up between Clement and Barrow

Having a child isn't an excuse to be unprofessional. Barrow and the other first teamers are probably "working" on average 5 hours a day, it's not like Barrow is a junior doctor working 18 hour shifts is it. Barrow and Clement fell out before and I would guess it has something to do with h...
