Why don't you post your own positive comments instead of sniping at other posters? That's all some do on here.

Another very good away performance to add to Saturday's with a win perhaps even more deserved than v Orient. Jon Stead seems to be an excellent acquisition which makes you wonder why we didn't negotiate his permanent transfer when Nahki was going the other way to H'field.

Stead and the rapidly improving (game on game) Bennett were two best for City, but, after two clean sheets in a row away, you have to also give credit to the defence. 1600 fans in stadium (in Northampton) 300 plus were Bantams' fans, which means ex-top tier (for years and years) Coventry are reduced to a home support of under 1500.

I do feel sorry for Coventry because clearly playing at 'home' (??!!) isn't a particularly motivating experience/they're suffering hard times but, City can only play where they have to and who they're up against and be professional about it. Tonight BC did this and more.

So, from leaving the field at 'VP' a week ago to a chorus of boos, the team will likely emerge to wild enthusiastic cheering this Saturday! Whoever said 'a week's a lifetime in politics' could also add' football too.' Two poor performances/results followed by two very good ones. Now 'PP' needs to motivate the players to play out of their skins v Oldham on Saturday because one more win should mean, worries over!! The fans, particularly the one who went to Orient/Northampton, deserve it. Well done BCAFC!!

PS: Mr Mourhino, your most unfavourite referee suited US just fine!!

Whilst you ironically can't practice what you preach VC.

Seems strange that when the bilious and hateful are made to look foolish following two strong performances and two clean sheets that they don't wish to have their folly brought back into play but they are happy to slag off all and sundry after a defeat. PP, Mclean, Bennett were all getting slated a week ago. Those who defended them last week have every right to make their point after the last two games.

There are about 4 or so that come on here with their righteous defence of everything (I think it makes them feel they are a superior fan). I do criticize and challenge other posters but I also put my opinion on first, for others to criticize, challenge or maybe agree. Do you?

Bennett looks a player to me, great feet, close control and a player that would flourish in the Valley Parade environment, hopefully BCFC will be able to sign him for next season, Stead has the pedigree, will be interesting to see how he fairs for the rest of his loan spell, very promising so far. Excellent point tonight with what seems like a very good all round team performance. Very good turnout again by the BCFC fans, 327 well done to every single one of you BCFC fans. Think the Oldham game will be a cracker!!!!

Hello Victor.

The ones that you describe as righteous (and I would include myself in that category) are faced with two considerations: -

(1) Trying to defend against some of the more outrageous comments placed on here; and
(2) Actually/ genuinely believing in the club i.e. the owners and/or the management team and/or the staff.

In challenging some of the more absurd rants (in my opinion) it is inevitable that battle lines are drawn. It is then difficult to get to the point where a constructive chat can take place.

'Knight' was obviously letting some annoyance out and I can only agree with his 'take'.

On to more positive note, I thought it was an excellent performance last night. I did fear that Coventry would come back strongly in the second half as it is very difficult to go away from home and dominate both periods.

It is a pity that Kyel Reid was missing last night. With room to play, and on a decent surface, I think he would have caused havoc. In any case, the link-play 'up top' was excellent.

Players are paid good money to work as hard but, without exception, they all put in a good shift in. Without wishing to single one person out, I thought McLean could not have tried any harder.

Whilst I may not agree with some stuff posted on here I would defend the right to say it (well - most of it!).

Or to criticise the point rather than the person - although I must admit I fell in to that trap myself replying to someone who makes out that they commercial director at the club or something similar in a bit of a morally superior way, just trying to put people down quite a lot of the time.

1) if the comments are that outrageous why bother?
2) absurd rants - if they are so, you dont need to bother?
or do you think we are thick?
most of the stronger comments are made after a poor performance, so dont you think other fans might be letting off a bit of steam!
by your own admittance you dont have any balance to your comments, yet you have the gall to question others!

By stating "do you think we are thick" you are instantly casting yourself in the role of a victim.

Until now, I have not gained any impression to suggest that you are thick.

As for your "why bother?" remark, it is my business as to whether I choose to hit back at opinions I do not agree with. I do not think that public defamation / vilification via a keyboard should go unchecked.

If you (or others like you) wish to let of steam then do you not think that others are entitled to have a go back at you?

I have not stated that my comments are unbalanced. I said that it is difficult to converse in view of the circumstances presented so please do not twist my words.

If you took more responsibility in what you are saying, rather than using the club as a punch bag, then it might be easier? It might be your hobby but there are people's careers and livelihoods at stake.

No, I am not casting myself as thick or a victim. I wasn't even talking about myself. I was merely answering your points. A bit too straight forward for you I think. Btw, I like football and like talking about it (not saying I know a lot) and I don't appreciate your condescending posts.

QUOTE: "or do you think *we* are thick?". 'We' refers to self and others. If you had stated 'they' then you would be making sense.

If you think my posts are condescending, then I have no problem with that.

However, what I would suggest is that you argue the point rather than with the person making it. That might seem condescending but it is the advice I would offer to anyone who does not agree with another person.

It is not worth the time of day getting involved in a personal vendetta.

Until now, I have not gained any impression to suggest that you are thick. As for your "why bother?" remark, it is my business as to whether I choose to hit back at opinions I do not agree with. I do not think that public defamation / vilification via a keyboard should go unchecked. If you (or others like you) wish to let of steam then do you not think that others are entitled to have a go back at you? I have not stated that my comments are unbalanced. I said that it is difficult to converse in view of the circumstances presented so please do not twist my words. If you took more responsibility in what you are saying, rather than using the club as a punch bag, then it might be easier? It might be your hobby but there are people's careers and livelihoods at stake.[/p][/quote]No, I am not casting myself as thick or a victim. I wasn't even talking about myself. I was merely answering your points. A bit too straight forward for you I think. Btw, I like football and like talking about it (not saying I know a lot) and I don't appreciate your condescending posts.[/p][/quote]QUOTE: "or do you think *we* are thick?". 'We' refers to self and others. If you had stated 'they' then you would be making sense. If you think my posts are condescending, then I have no problem with that. However, what I would suggest is that you argue the point rather than with the person making it. That might seem condescending but it is the advice I would offer to anyone who does not agree with another person. It is not worth the time of day getting involved in a personal vendetta.
