Bristol City will need to play at extramundane levels to avoid shipping at least 4 goals tonight .... that's my predictions anyway

TV game for me tonight - looking forward to it enormously. There's nothing like a cup semi final to elevate a Tuesday!

I think the reason everyone's a bit complacent is that for Bristol City to get a result against us over 2 legs would be the greatest achievement in their history.
All we are saying is give Doug a pass.

Absolutely DHTP, couldn't care what Comp it is, it's a semi final, it could be the Mickey Mouse cup for all I care, oh wait..... :o :lol: :o

I'd like to think Pep will continue to play a relatively strong team, I kind of like Bristol City from back in the day, but hope we stuff them in first leg (just to piss the rags off really).

Cmon City, they'll definitely give us game, that's for sure.

Looking forward to a good game, which I hope goes massively in our favour by the end.

It's a cup semi final. There are too many games in the season bigger than this. This is the reason to follow football, to enjoy these moments of potential glory and dream of Wembley finals. Said it before and I'll say it again, we won fuck all for donkeys years, let's enjoy these games and the glory they bring as I for one will never tire of them

Would like to see Yaya up top as a striker just for curiosity's sake, but a strong line up that should do the job.

I think Yaya is a mistake but what the hey.
I’d rather see Diaz to be honest.

Strong enough line up and sounds like playing a false number 9.

Part of me feels sad when I read Yaya's name on a team sheet and think that could be the weakest part if the team.

Come on CITY!
