    Thats a contradiction though surely? As if he could take it he wouldn't be mouthing off to the fans who should then 'take it'. I would have thought the annual wage of a large percentage of the population that he gets in a week should help with that too?

    To be honest, I don't really see what he brings to the team. 
    Is he meant to be a creative outlet higher up the pitch? Is so, he's too one footed and his passing isn't good enough to make it work. 
    Is he meant to be a deep lying playmaker? His passing range isn't good enough and his carelessness on the ball creates problems (think it was last night when he deliberately and definitely turned back into the crowd of players instead of the space, gifting Bristol a counter attack).
    Is he meant to be a terrier? He doesn't have the work rate, stamina and tenacity to do that. 
    At the moment, he's just a body filling space, not doing much. And we can't really afford that.

    What amazed me was straight after costing us the game he tried to beat about five Bristol city players. Malone is a complete liability, he will cost us in future games if we continue to play him.

    Just got back I am ducking lost for words at how bad that was, if we play like that on a consistent basis I won't be going becuase I will have a ducking heart attack at some point. I don't know where to start with that really I'm still raging like hell thinking about it. 2 disgraceful goals we gifted them, with the 2nd an absolutely shockingly poo bit of play from Malone, he was truly abysmal and I hope he doesn't play again after that, I would much rather see Buchanan play as he cant be any worse and looks more athletic and better technically. First half we looked devoid of ideas and Dowell played fowl , he was atrocious and looked like a non league player and that carried into the 2nd half.
    Once we switched to 3 ATB we were marginally better , with a large part of that being down to Malone being taken off.  We tried and tried 2nd half but trying won't get you anywhere with a completely disjointed midfield and Huddlestone and Dowell playing like crap and Jozefoon having the worst crossing you will ever see at this level.  Marriott coming on made a difference and his goal was quality, I am praying he stays fit and gets a run in the starting 11 as we will need his goals on that evidence.  Overall we were absolutely horrendous and the false  optimism I had after Rooney signed and we looked decent against Huddersfield is shattered. 
    My hope is that  Huddlestone ,Dowell and Malone are dropped for Saturday and other players  such as Evans, Knight and Marriott start, in the long term Holmes and Bogle will make a big difference, and there is potential for Paterson to play over Jozefoon or Dowell as he can't be much worse. In addition , I am hoping players like Mitchell-Lawson and Buchanan are given first team action, becuase with how shocking the senior players in their position played they would do well to be worse, and more than likely they would be an improvement. Its early days but ducking hell Cocu has got some serious work to do on that evidence, I would be disappointed but not majorly downbeat if this was a midtable transition season with youth given a chance . However, if we perform like that consistently and it would be beyond unacceptable no matter what the circumstances are. I really hope I am not this pissed off Saturday come 5PM or even worse after next Tuesday.

    Trying my absolute best here to not scapegoat Malone... Nope, can't do it, he was absolutely awful. Keep him away from LB and give one of our other half dozen LB's a go.

    I dont blame cocu, not much he can do with league 1 standard midfielders and wingers (bar beilik and lawrence when he decides to turn up)
    The recruitment team needs sacking. Failed to get a winger who can at least not lose the ball every time, failed to get an energetic box to box midfielder and failed to get a Number 1 keeper 
    A complete disaster of a market, our midfield balance is a disaster. Too slow. Huddlestone past it

    Gotta feel for Cocu. At psv he had quality wingers like Lozano and a motivated Depay, whereas here he has to work with very average-borderline rubbish wingers like Lawrence, Jozefzoon and Bennett. It’s like splitting with your 10/10 fit blond girlfriend then ending up with a 2/10 overweight , smelly fat woman.

    Stats for the seasons JR and Ince played in the same team...

    2014-15: 
    JR 39 apps,  6 goals, 8 assists. 2 MoM awards. 
    Ince 18 apps, 11 goals, 1 assist, 7 MoM awards. 
    2015-16:
    JR 47 apps,  10 goals, 8 assists, 1 MoM award. 
    Ince 44 apps, 12 goals, 8 assists, 5 MoM awards. 
    2016-17:
    JR 36 apps, 2 goals, 4 assists, 1 MoM award.  
    Ince 45 apps, 14 goals, 6 assists, 6 MoM awards. 

    Over 3 seasons, Ince contributed to 14 more goals than Russell, and received 14 more MoM awards, despite making 15 less appearances.

    I get really tired of assertions that our wingers are lazy just because they make more attacking contributions than defensive ones - that's the point of a team, to have balance - some players will be more gifted at one end than the other, yet for our lot if they aren't seen defending their own corner flag making tackles then they're castigated as lazy and inconsistent. 

    Contributing to 20 goals a season for 2 seasons is pretty damn consistent in my book. 

    For what it's worth Lawrence can't hold a candle to Ince in terms of outputs - but I do think there's a broader point here about us unfairly getting on the back of our creative players and it can't help with their form or confidence. I know Ince was pretty unhappy with the fans by the time he left, understandably considering he was vastly underrated by most of our supporters.

    I used to play Football with Jaden at my primary school , he was always very good for his age(hes about 3-4 years younger than me) and a very good dribbler , his older brother in my year was always good as well but he was the better player out the two for his age. His dad Gary Charles obviously used to play for us and always battered everyone in the dads races at sports day, so it would be very interesting and weird for me seeing him play for us in a few years time.

    Important we win this IMO, don't win this and an average start turn into a poor one, win it and an average start becomes a promising start. Obviously it is early days but with some tough games coming up , I think it is important we win this one. I'd like to see us drop Huddlestone for Bielik and drop Jozefoon  for Paterson, and also swap Evans for Knight and play a 4 33with Bielik holding.

    It's a nice idea, but I don't think Cocu would want to leave us potentially so open. You're asking a lot of Keogh, Clarke and Bielik in this formation to cover where gaps might appear.
    Bristol City are a very athletic and dynamic side. We might carry more threat with this line up, but we could also get picked off on the counter attack.
