If I was the Dutch I wouldn’t be laughing.  That side are not going far in the euros in my view.  A poor Dutch side compared to other sides.

True, however last night they had their second team out more or less!

The Dutch from my experience are a highly idiosyncratic eccentric race (and I lived and worked there!) but then again so are we in a virtually opposite way!

BTW I'd much rather have a pint with our ladz!

Dara O'Shea was woeful.

I'm probably the only one who thinks this but Jason Knight is a terrible player. Just a complete headless chicken with zero technical ability, just running around fouling and being anonymous.

Terrible, lifeless, pathetic performance last night.

It was far across the sea,
When the devil got a hold of me,
He wouldn't set me free,
So he kept me soul for ransom.

You really can't judge the team on last night, or anything from the last 12 to 18 months really. Especially the defenders, because they're not playing in an organised system and are getting no protection at all. Put them in a well organised team and they'll suddenly look a lot better. Dara O'Shea was excellent last season, Knight has been fantastic this season at Bristol City. They're not world beaters or anywhere close to it, but they're a lot better than their Ireland displays are making them look.

Its not a Xmas film. End of

It takes place at a Christmas party,on Christmas eve, it has Christmas hats and music, and has inspired perhaps the greatest Christmas jumper of all time 

It is most definitely a Christmas film!


I watched it last night after reading the comments on here and have to agree that it’s undoubtedly a Christmas movie (which is what I would’ve always presumed); maybe not a typical one, but a Christmas movie nonetheless.

Knight has been bang ordinary this season at BS, same as he was last season at Derby. Can't seeing him ever becoming a Premier league standard player.

Well that's horsesh*t, he's been a stand out player for them. The fams love him, a lot of them think he's an upgrade on Scott who he's replaced.

He’s dirt for Ireland. That’s what matters. Sure he runs around like a lunatic. To what effect?

He's so limited as a midfielder I'd play him at right back.

Maybe he’s a standout player at Bristol because he’s found his level….at international level he’s limited.danny blind read him like a book on 3/4 occasions and knights passing was shocking.hes all for the cause and is industrious but the likes of him and Cullen,Collins are a huge part of the problem

In green tinted O'Shea world perhaps he's a stand out player. In actual empirical reality he's bang ordinary. 15 Championship matches for City zero goals, one assist. On Whoscored he is rated their 13th best player....worst of any regular starter. 
Some fans will like him because he works hard,gets stuck in and runs around a lot, which is all they want to see from a player. That doesn't help you win matches at international level though.
Scott was in the PFA team of the year for the championship last season. I bet you a trillion euros Knight will not be nominated for that team!

You don't even know DALEY Blind's name, so no surprise you're going on about him as if he's some jobber who got the better of Knight LOL This is a guy who's played for Man Utd, Ajax,and Bayern, has been a Champions League regular throughout his career, and has 103 caps for one of the best international sides in the world LOL But yeah, Knight must be hopeless because this incredibly decorated spoofer "read him like a book"...

Nice one, so in other words you've completely guessed as to his form and surprise surprise you've got it wrong. Bristol City fans adore him, you're talking out of your posterior Clown

Nope I've based it on objective facts and reports from professional journos and my own observations. Which I'd probably prioritise over a notoriously biased and deluded forum poster's claims on the opinions of some random football fans on twitter.

Another player built up way more than he should have been on here over the years.

Every single one of our players, at this current time, are Championship standard players bar Ferguson and arguably Collins. Ogbene is having a good season regardless of Luton results but the jury is still out whether he can make it at that level. Cullen & O'Shea are good Championship players but not PL standard yet, imo.
