    On reflection maybe things weren’t as bad as they first seemed last night.

    My biggest gripe as ever is that we don’t put away the chances we’re presented with. We did more than enough to score 3 goals in the first half, add to that the times Leroy got to the line and pulled a ball back but no one was there to receive it.

    And whilst some credit should be given to Bristol, they did still park the bus, especially in the 2nd half where any problems they caused us were mostly of our own doing.

    Before the game I wanted Pep to go big and get the tie finished. With a full strength side I’m confident we’d be going to their ground with a 3 or 4 goal cushion and no hope for them.

    Also as for their "great fanbase" "great following" etc bullshit. It was a massive game for them. Massive, massive game. We sold our 4000 ticket allocation within a few hours (season ticket holders only) for Stamford Bridge last season in the 2nd round of the EFL Cup (only lost 3-2). We would have took many, many more if we had more tickets or it went past season ticket holders. Even some season ticket holders missed out. Their ground is a fucking library week in, week out so they hd a cheek singing that to you last night and the biggest match at Ashton Gate in a long time and they haven't even sold out (they will now as they are still in the tie).

    I don't want to sound bitter as they are doing well on the pitch. But off the pitch they lack class and are fickle, obnoxious ****s. I'll enjoy the hammering in the 2nd leg.

    Anyone can injured at anytime. It's an occupational hazard. Guardiola might be the top coach but he, nor us, are fortune tellers. If a player plays and gets injured he gets injured. It's tough witty, but FFS we need to play players who can win us the game. I still maintain that had Aguero started, and had we upped the game a notch then, penalty and the Alty Tit aside, the game wouldn't have needed chasing in the second half. Injuries can happen anytime, on the ball, off the ball, in the warm up. We shouldn't be wrapping players in cotton wool 'cos there's another game at weekend. We could have got turned over last night with or without Aguero, and if he starts on Sunday we could get turned over in that game! Yer buy the asset, yer play the asset!

    Bristol City is in number 3 slot for times I've visited the ground. City first, EFC second and then Bristol City. Spent three glorious years down there. Beautiful city, and I chose to watch Bristol City over the Gasheads, despite the colours, 'cos they had City in the name.

    You wonder if by leaving Aguero out Pep was sending a message, because without another forward coming in were screwed infact the mentality of starting the home leg minus your only front man,when the idea is to build a lead is baffling ,Have to give BCFC full marks for tonight and if we go there with anything but our strongest team we will struggle.. infact this competition has proved in depth we are not as good as you would like to think we are

    Couldn't disagree more fella.

    There's a reason why we have a sports science department and pay Pep £15m per year to make this sort of decision. Your comments are just so old school.

    This "injuries can happen any time" stuff is bullshit. They are far more likely to happen when a player is in the red zone and not had time to fully recover and we have ONE fit striker. Lose him and we are fucked across all comps for now.
