Bobby Reid’s goals and an inspiring cup run: Bristol City’s season review



It’s been an incredibly impressive year for Bristol City, despite Lee Johnson’s side failing to secure play-off football in the Sky Bet Championship.

The Robins were in contention for the top-six for most of the season, but fell short in their quest for play-off football. Regardless of that, it was a hugely impressive season at Ashton Gate, with Bristol City also reaching the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup.

We take a look at Bristol City’s 2017/18 campaign in our latest FLW Spotlight:

From Bristol City’s 46 Championship fixtures they recorded 17 victories, 16 draws and 13 defeats, scoring 67 goals and conceding 58.

19 of those Championship goals came from Bobby Reid, who is our FLW Player of the Year for the Robins, after a hugely impressive campaign that brought 21 goals across all competitions.

Josh Brownhill, who has featured in 45 of Bristol City’s 46 fixtures, picks up our Young Player of the Year award.

Nathan Baker, who arrived from Aston Villa last summer, is our Signing of the Year, with the defender producing some steady performances alongside Aden Flint in central defence.

We now turn our attention to Bristol City’s success in the Carabao Cup, focusing on their 2-1 quarter-final victory over Manchester United, which was our FLW Performance of the Year.

Korey Smith’s winner that evening is also our Goal of the Season, whilst the best quote to come out of Bristol City this season has to be following that fixture, when Johnson was discussing why Jose Mourinho hadn’t had any wine:

“I eventually realised my goalkeeper coach (Dave Coles) had drunk three quarters of the bottle.”
