Sunderland v Bristol City Matchday Thread

Post  cyprussyd on 2017-10-21, 5:52 pm

Our Brentford game was a glass half full or glass half empty game but it was a game that made it three in a row unbeaten and showed all the signs of a team coming together.

However our next two games will, IMO, decide on our fortunes and the managers future

Saturday
We face a Bristol City team sitting in 6th place but who also have just been beaten at home 3-0 a win or draw maybe OK but defeat is unacceptable

Tuesday
We face the only team below us, a must win.

Both games will be nervy affairs for the players and manager but for us poor fans, unbearable.

Steele must start, Grayson has decided he is number 1 so time to back him

Back 4 Jones Kone Oshea Oveado

Then we hit decision time, drop Cattermole but keep NDong. Williams in if fit.

Go 4-4-2 with Watmore and Grabban up front

Bristol City beating Palace 4-1 in the league cup game tonight

Palace are terrible and Hodgson will be lucky to survive till Christmas so this is not a huge shock, even though Leeds beat City comprehensively at the weekend. Perhaps now we know why?? tongue

Well you seem to be delighted with them.
Woohoo, a draw against a class side like Brentford after throwing away a two goal lead.
Excellent result. Loads of positives there eh? Question

Hi, Bristol City fan here. Just thought I'd pop on and say a friendly hello. 
I'm hoping for a draw, think we're capable of a win but you guys are too and as we're away I would be more than happy with a share of the points. We could do with something out of the game to show the Leeds match was a blip and not us getting found out (we were in a similar position this time last season and then just fell apart). 
We will be missing our record signing (a striker who leads the line) who damaged his ACL against Palace and could also be without Bobby Reid our top scorer (he is 50/50 at the moment). But we do have decent understudies, they just haven't had a lot of game time. 
I was trying to see if there were any interesting player links (ex players etc) the best I could come up with is Joe Bryan our left back (and best player) was linked with you in the summer and Adam Matthews. Matthew's was amazing for us in his 1st loan and then terrible once we had him on a year-long deal and ended up not playing. I presume he is now rotting in you reserves somewhere. 

Looking forward to the game on Saturday although I can't make it this time. I did make it way back in the 98/99 season when you guys were destroying everyone. We literally stole a point that day and were under the cosh all game. We were singing such beauty's as "we're in your half again, we're in your half again" and "1-0 you're only winning 1-0". We ended up getting relegated that season.  Crying or Very sad Anyway best wishes for every game (except those against us) pretty sure you guys are going to come good just hopefully not on Saturday!

Welcome and I promise we will be far more nervous than you lot, we and in particular Grayson need a win badly, we know it will be far from easy.

My hope is that our very little steps of 3 games unbeaten can become wins in our next two games, confidence on and off the field is very low.

Thanks. Rate Grayson, pretty highly I'm sure he'll turn things around, have horrible feeling we might give you that win you want. 
3 games unbeaten is a good start, this division (particularly this season where no one seems to be running away with it yet) is all about bouncing back quickly and keeping momentum once you have it.

Well I think we now have the record for the longest run without a home win so it must end one day and Saturday would be good.

The problem is we are now finding out we can go 2 or maybe 3 up in the first half but still cant relax so a long afternoon ahead for we poor mackems but hey, we were never told it would be easy following Sunderland.

Sounds like us last season we had a spell of 1 win in 11 including a club record 8 defeats on the trot. Then we had games like Derby away where we were 3 up and drew 3-3 then Newcastle away 2 up drew 2-2. But we kept the faith because we believed in the man in charge (or at least our chairman did) and we are reaping the rewards right now. You've got some prem quality players and I think a fantastic manager so its more a question of when it comes to gether and playing yourself into form.
