Bristol City's 5-4 defeat to Coventry was like a park kickabout, according to captain Sam Baldock.

Sam Baldock: Felt like he was at the park

The Robins found themselves 3-0 down at the break but having clawed back the deficit

they ended up on the wrong end of a nine-goal thriller after a string of late goals.

And Baldock, who grabbed two of City's four second-half strikes, admitted he has never been involved in a game like it since making it as a pro.

"I've not played in one like that since I was a kid. It was like something you see on the park," he told BBC Radio Bristol.

"There were mistakes all over the pitch but the defenders are going to learn from them.

"No doubt we'll have hour-long meetings, or two-hour long meetings, to sort it out. It will be drummed in to us as a team.

"It's going to take some time to get over the result. But we are only two games in to the season and no one wins anything in the first two weeks."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
