Changes for Brizzle

Post by stainrod's elbow » Mon Aug 20, 2018 10:05 am

Quite frankly, if you could, you'd drop the lot, wouldn't you?

For starters, I'd suggest

Lumley for Ingram
Baptiste for Leistner
Rangel for Kakay
Wszolek for Cousins
Hall for A N Other (even if three quarters fit).

I'd also like to see little Smyth start, as we're desperately in need of some width and verve up top.

Other than that, our flush is already looking a little busted, and our options limited to say the least. Loanees or not, the players and management team are going to have to dig their way out of this for the most part. Gulp!

My feeling is that the loss of Smithies has spooked the defence, and is probably even more catastrophic than selling Freeman would have been. For me, we're likely to concede at least another 15-20 goals this season in consequence, and lose God knows how many more points. I know we've all been over it already, but the crap fee rubs everybody's noses in it, and proves to me that Hoos and Les aren't capable of running the club at a proud pitch.

I don't know what will happen on Tuesday, but if there isn't a fierce response, I fear the atmosphere may start to turn poisonous. McClaren's misleading comments about the youthfulness of the squad, and his pitiful references to getting in reinforcements if we're not to be screwed, already suggest to me a dishonest and flaccid manager flailing about for excuses. I wish I could find succour from somewhere, but feel more like I'm clutching at straws.

Get out there and prove me wrong, Rangers! Do it for the (pink) shirt!

I wouldn’t change too much as we are at home. Lumley being the only big change. We weren’t totally dire against Sheffield United so let’s go again and see how we get along.

If we lose then Saturday has to be different. I would suggest five at the back, maybe a sweeper, and play our quickest players to break quickly. Anything to get that first point.

You say McClaren made pitiful comments about the need for reinforcements but we are told Holloway made he same comments before being sacked and many on here have praised him for so doing

Race you to the bottom of the league!

This does feel like the earliest six pointer ever.

Without giving overmuch away we can play tippy tappy possession football until the cows come home but very rarely venture into the last quarter of the pitch so our goal threat is negligible.

I'm going 0-0 draw.
QPR are my second team - not many Bristol City fans can say that!

It doesn't sound like a great game is in prospect !

What happened to the Bristol City of the beginning of last season ? That was a big powerful team that always looked like hitting hard. Why has Johnson changed things around ?

In that case I'm going for an 8 goal (thriller??)

Nice to hear from you BC. Bristol remains my favourite town to live.

Very good in the first half. Solid, strong, did his job well.

The second half, like the rest of the side, a total car crash.

I say give the team who lost 7-1 an opportunity to redeem themselves. If they can't (i.e. we lose) then we should certainly look at making changes. But not before.

Fair point. Would replace Ingram though. Rabbit in the headlights at the moment.

Watching him crumble with the home crowd on his back will absolutely ruin him.

He’s nowhere near the level required, IMO.

We have to make changes after Saturday: we have a first team squad and need to use it.

Lumley, Rangel, Wzolek should definitely come in.

I would play Sylla instead of Smith as his hold up game is slightly better: Smith as impact sub.

Hall should have come on against Peterbrough to try to get him up to match fitness but SMc didn't do it so surely no chance he will play tomorrow.

I would also only play one of Eze or Freeman and play wide men in their proper positions for a change.

Will be interesting to see what team SMc puts out in a game where he has to get a positive result.

Lumley should obviously play for sure.

Leistner should stay, been our best defender thus far and one of our only leaders.

I'd actually be tempted to start Washington up front. He would at least make runs in behind which suits Eze and Freemans game so much more. I doubt he'd score himself but he'd make more space for our best players to be effective.

McLaren will see first hand what the reaction within the squad has been to the heavy defeat, and is experienced enough to know what, if any, changes need making. The fans can only guess. Whatever McLaren decides to do is fine by me, the fans have no input into team selection so has to be sucked up. He's in the know, I/we are not.....in my opinion of course.
