  1. Bristol City have brought the end of Warnock (he was supposedly retiring at the end of the season). Not sure the club has ever contributed such a great gift to football before now.
  2. The fact we could have gone second on Sunday with a win is somewhat miraculous. 5 first team starters injured long term. One of them potentially for the season. Our best player this season has been an 18 year old who was expected to get some time, but not to be starting week in, week out. As a result he's looked a bit tired the last few games, followed by a CB who was on loan at Southend last season and while a number of their fans said they wouldn't mind him joining permanently, he also wasn't someone they'd want the club to push the boat out to sign. Granted Moore signed from Lens for about £2m, but an unsuccessful spell at Cheltenham before his time at Southend had more than a few saying he wasn't good enough, and now he's filling the shoes of Adam Webster! Nagy probably would be our best player this season if he hadn't injured himself scoring (on his home debut I think) and then exacerbating it when returning from injury by playing for Hungary. Predicting right now that Massengo will win young player of the year for the end of season club awards. Edit- forgot that Moore also went off injured at half time on Sunday. It's hoped he will be back for Friday though. Diedhiou is also suspended, so our current strikers are Semenyo, a kid with a lot of potential but has never scored for us, Rodri, signed as an emergency free transfer, and Weimann.
  3. Don't think it's either, but a lot to be said for momentum. Think they will tail off and finish midtable at best, but an impressive start nonetheless.
  4. Massengo now confirmed. €8m on a 4 years contract. Monaco fans fuming.
  5. Don't think anything much can be read into our game yesterday. Lots of players didn't play well and we were up against the favourites for the league. I suspect we will probably finish within that range (I'd even say 7th-9th) although I put a small bet on us finishing top 6. Massengo signed from Monaco today and the ITK on our forum saying Nketiah on loan from Arsenal is essentially done. Whether an 18 and 20 year old will be the difference to push us into top 6 is a big ask for them, but then age wasn't a barrier for Tammy in a much weaker team.
  6. Eliasson is a fantastic player and I'd have started him yesterday (even without hindsight). Was a bit surprised to see O'Dowda start ahead of him, particularly as O'Dowda reneged on a contract offer Eliasson is 100% the best crosser of the ball of any Bristol City player I have watched, and similar comments have been made by other City fans much older than me. His biggest weakness is that he seems very one footed. It was said when he signed that Stoke (then Premier League) had tried to sign him, and that there was an agreement if Eliasson did well that they could buy him, however their relegation probably prevented that from happening. With Nicolas only being about 24 I think he will end up in the Premier League, with or without Bristol City.
  7. My stream is about 6 minutes behind, but from what I've seen so far. Leeds very much controlling possession but rarely creating much, we've been quite happy to let them pass the ball around in their half, then pressing once they pass the halfway line. Diedhiou being asked to do too much, not getting any support and the service into him has been poor.
  8. Hoping there's something in this. Anything that might free up Nketiah for a loan, given we're apparently the leading club for getting him.
  9. This rumour now confirmed true by Steve Lansdown, Massengo is in Bristol, paperwork and medical need completing but looks positive. Massengo has made 7 senior appearances total, but is the Champions Leagues youngest ever player and in his 7 senior games played against PSG, Dortmund and Atletico Madrid.
  10. Leeds have 4 players unavailable apparently, so that's them winning 3-0
  11. Transfer yet to happen (not the Webster one), but French journalists reporting that a kiddie at Monaco has asked to join us and will be in Bristol for a medical in the next 48 hours, cost of player 8m Euros + 20% sell on. Hadn't heard of Massengo until last night personally, but their fans on their forum aren't happy and none of them are questioning the validity of the place that first reported it. That their fans aren't happy is a positive sign for me, but Bristol City breaking their transfer record on someone so young and with something like 6 senior appearances is more than a little surprising. Hope it is true regardless.
  12. I always thought the mirror was ok, my one only ever says the same thing as me though, so no exclusives as such.
  13. A team signing Shane Long (in the Premier League) is a team asking to be involved in a relegation battle.
