  1. This clown was brought in because he had a reputation for this. Goals against speaks for itself. I’m sick of analysing the games - it’s beyond analysis now. We need to f.ck him off quickly and get someone in who knows how to properly coach and set the team up.

    Problem with sacking a manager

    That defence. Westwood, Lees, Loovens, and Hutch (when fit). 3 out of those 4 could play on Tues. I think a new manager might find this a simple choice and a simple solution.

    A little persective on the Derby match.

    Agree with this. With Matias or Nando fit we have the players who can counter, which showed when Matias came on. João when firing can be unplayable but he’s more often anonymous. With the players we had available the tactics were probably about right. Hopefully a different story at our place.

    This side after international break

    The difference on Friday when Matias came on was from a team hanging on to a team with balance (an attacking option as well as a string defence). Throw Nando into that mix and we should start picking up points after the break. Jos can’t play a counter attacking game without players that can counter attack. I don’t trust him not to tinker with the defence, but hopefully Norwich was a lesson and Hector stays in the centre and he leaves it alone now. I’d have Penney at lwb, he’s showed what he can do when he settles, and Reach further forward, but the OP still makes a good point about the pieces we’ve badly missed.

    Grow some cajones

    As a defensive coach there are probably few better in the Champioship.

    Grow some cajones

    Agree with this. I’m not sure about bringing the old crocks back, but I have some big question over his suicidal defensive formations. Too many times he’a just not seen it coming - wings back caught up the pitch v Wigan away, flat 4 with no cover v Norwich etc etc. Yesterday the result was ok but we really shouldn’t have to play with effectively a back 6. He can have the biggest b.llocks in the world but until we get a proper defensive coach we’re going nowhere.

    So what is the way forward?

    Agree with all of this. We need a decent coach in to work with Jos to sort out the defence (playing a flat 4 with no cover v Norwich was suicide yesterday) and up front we play anyone except Niuhui in the no 10 position behind Fletch, and we don’t panic. We’ll get over the line this year and as long as they’re not under too much pressure the crop of fantastic kids of various ages will come good in the New Year ready for a push next season.

    Midfield

    Pessy did his job. Last night too many of the others didn’t perform and we didn’t move, pass or close down well enough. It’s a simple game. Palmer tries but lacks that bit of ability to make a difference. Penney looked like a kid in a man’s game. Jaoa never got going. I don’t have to mention Tom Lees. I’m not a fan of Fletch but he had a go. I agree midfield is the problem and we missed Matias or Nando running at them with the ball on the ground - something a bit different. I don’t think we can blame Pessy.

    From Doom and Gloom to Top 2.

    Whether it’s a beast or just better in midfield I don’t know but we have to be winning the 2nd balls and keeping more than 40% possession. I don’t know if Hutch is the answer any more. Perhaps Joey will grow into the player we need.

    A Bristol City view....

    Thanks, always enjoyed Bristol, some great music (I’m old enough to remember the Dugout!). We owed you one after you battered us last year. No it’s not blue - I know a few Rovers fans but even they think they’re an endangered species. One result we can both laugh at most weeks is Cardiff losing. We have a bit of a love hate thing with Colin. Anyway, good luck for the rest of the season.

    Hector and Joao

    Respect your views mate. I could name a few more games (Arsenal and Wolves at home in that first year spring to mind, and Derby at home last year) but agree he’s not the finished article and if we could get Hooper fit he’d play every game for me with Nando and Reach working behind.

    Hector and Joao

    Can’t agree with this. João has pace and is good running with the ball from deep. Fighting for a long ball against 2 or 3 strong defenders isn’t his game, and he looked poor when he came on, but wouldn’t most strikers given that kind of role and service.

    When and how do we......Go for it?

    Is this a tactic or just that we’re not good enough in the middle. On Wednesday we had 40% possession, barely won a second ball and struggled to string passes together or simply passed through the middle straight to WBA’s midfield. It was worse second half against Leeds. I’m delighted that we’re still in the mix and enjoying the kids coming through but like you say we have to do more than scrap for points and try to play football and keep the initiative.

    Leeds fan in peace

    Agree with this. Long ball into the channel with full backs overlapping. It’s effective but not enough to get an automatic spot, as we found in the first 2 CC seasons. I don’t know why Jaoa or Matias didn’t start to exploit the holes created every time they attacked. The way our midfield played i’m not sure we would have made the pass anyway, but I see them taking some hammerings in the second half of the season. It’s always fun watching the scum fall apart again!

    Doing it the right way

    You might be right in part but Baker has been played ahead of Palmer, Penney ahead of Fox, Preston ahead of Nando, Thorniley ahead of Pudil etc. which to me points to a plan to bring the youth through. We’re in touch now (just) and if we can maintain this I’m really looking forward to seeing these lads mature in the New Year and make a push for the play offs.
