Bristol City v Boro 0-1 (Saville)

Recommended Posts

If Britt isn't fit it will be interesting how NW sets us up. He clearly won't be going gung ho down at Ashton Gate and will look to keep things tight as he did against Reading and avoid being picked apart. Chuba as a lone Striker with Roberts and Tav out wide with four at the back?

UTFB! Saville and Johnson excellent tonight. Wood up front - a clear message to Gibson and Bausor 

Progress. Unmistakeable progress. We're getting more solid defensively and more slick in our passing. The signs are more positive than they have been for a while. And Roberts could be immense for us i

I think it's more just a case of him playing back in his favoured position. He clearly can't play left side of either a back 4 or a back 5. When he's played central or on the right he goes back to loo

Can the club actually stream this match with it being on Sky Red Button?

It's a joke that they don't allow pubs to show the red button games.

They can stream all games at the moment, can't they?   You just have to pay separately for the Saturday 3pm away games if you've got your code from a season card purchase.  I think that's how it works anyway.

I'm sure it excluded matches shown on Sky too, but I'm not sure whether red button matches count

Someone asked on twitter and the club replied that it will be shown on the clubs streaming platform too

Disappointed no fans allowed in, as living in Plymouth this is the one game I could get to,But saying that Its also the one place I've been threatened, as I went into "The Robins" with a Boro shirt on(I didn't know it was the clubs watering hole before games),Their strips Red so it took a while for them to realise, when they did, it all kicked off,The landlord told me to leave,as I'd just got a pint I refused until it was gone,Left Brissle with a point to,Which I would settle for tonight

    • I certainly think it's an interesting thing to consider, if we broke off from them or simply banned them from competing alongside us until they put this stupid idea to bed, how the broadcasters would react. Who would they follow? Sky, for example, right now are protecting the Premier League with all the power they can. It's beneficial for them to do that. But if we split from those 6 and they had the opportunity of buying into what those clubs do next or just sticking by the Premier League and the EFL, what would they do? It seems like it should be an easy answer, follow the clubs with the money, follow the potential viewing figures they would generate. But is it as simple as that? I'm not so sure.
    • 1. Was it Malley that was highly rated a year or two ago? If it was I'd give him a go alongside Howson. I'd also give Coulson a run a leftback, we know what Bola is all about, and under JW Coulson seemed to be on an upward trajectory. If he puts in 5 good performances maybe we can keep him as cover for Bola and not worry about needing to sign leftback cover in the summer. Archer Fisher, Hall, McNair ,Coulson Howson, Malley Kebano, Watmore, Bolasie Akpom 1a. No idea, pesky Romans. 2. Negredo purely because at the time he seemed the perfect striker for Aitor's system (that he used during the promotion season). Valdes is worth a shout just because of his previous experience in the game and what he had won. 3. Who knows, but if we finish lower than 9th next season, that would be pretty bad.
    • Amber list countries then, if he has to quarantine. 
    • Thats exactly what it is, if you are negotiating with someone you need to be in a strong enough position to walk away and move onto an alternative.  I think this proposal is just that at the moment, these big European clubs will be prepared to start this alternative format if they can get away with it but I think the ultimate goal is to have more power and control within the current structure. And obviously more share of the financial pie as well.  They are acting like a cartel and its up to the governing bodies and other clubs to make sure they don't get away with it.  I made a point yesterday that this isn't a sudden thing, this balance of power has been gradually tipping since the Billionaires started getting involved with clubs in 2003. Wouldnt it be brilliant if other clubs declared all out war on these big super clubs?  I'd love to see the other 86 clubs in the football league threaten to break away from the current system. Start things up again and have a new league without the big 6, if they want to apply to join they'll have to start at the bottom of the pyramid and I mean the very bottom.  Let's rid football of FIFA and have a new, open and transparent organisation that gets rid of the corrupt scumbags there now. Have fan owned clubs like they have in Germany to prevent things like this happening in the future and have a domestic scene similar to Germany with realistic ticket prices and sensible kickoff times.  Part of me hopes this super league happens because that might be the catalyst for the bubble to burst and return the game to the fans.  Even if it means clubs having to start from scratch again.  I don't want a global super league where clubs are franchised from Liverpool to Singapore and I don't think fans in our country want that either. I think Liverpool fans for example would rather get behind a new team at an amateur level and watch them climb through the leagues again. It would be like a version of AFC Wimbledon but on a much larger scale. If it was a choice as well I think I'd rather the Boro went to the wall than be sucked into this new version of football. 
    • Completely see your point, but I don't think that's true. The reputational damage these clubs have suffered will endure for years. Share prices might have jumped yesterday on the back of overseas stock market traders who regard football clubs as nothing more than tradeable commodities, but these clubs will be viewed with suspicion in future by many players and managers. They might struggle to attract the same levels of attendance/merch sales/marquee signings in the coming years as clubs untainted by this scandal like Bayern, PSG, et al. I'm not suggesting Burnley or the Skunks will do well out of this, but my best friend has been a Man City fan for a quarter of a century and now wants nothing to do with them. That's not just him lost to them, but me (as his matchday companion), any kids he has, etc. These things take time to percolate through, but in the long term, I doubt the 'big six' PL clubs are going to win whatever happens.
