Andreas Weimann has been a key contributor for Bristol City in the final third once again this term but it appears he is a contentious figure among the Ashton Gate faithful.
The Austrian forward has been used in a string of different positions by Lee Johnson, including as a centre-forward and on both flanks, and has featured in every single one of the Robins’ Championship games this term.
With nine goals and three assists to his name, only City’s top scorer Famara Diedhiou and the Championship’s joint-top provider of assists Niclas Eliasson have contributed to more goals in the squad this season.
The 28-year-old’s work ethic is astounding and is one of a number of reasons why he has become one of Johnson’s key Lieutenants.
Mistakes have crept into the Austrian international’s game this term, including an own-goal against Birmingham City and a number of squandered opportunities, but he has remained a mainstay in the City XI.
The forward has enjoyed two of the most productive years of his career since joining from Derby County in 2018 but it appears that parts of the Ashton Gate faithful remain unconvinced.
Have Bristol City done these 15 things in the last 10 years? – Yes or no? Have a go now!
Weimann’s quality seems to be a contentious issue among City fans, many of whom took to Twitter to voice their thoughts.

For me either very good or very poor, one thing for certain is never gives less than 100%

Very good player. Insane work rate. Decent on the ball. Underrated and under appreciated.

Not personally. Can’t knock his work rate or him as a person, but if we are to improve or reach the next level he’s not good enough imo. Decision making is poor and doesn’t get enough goals or assists. Fam might be inconsistent in his hold up play for instance, but scores goals

🤔Yes. Works so hard.

Good work rate but poor technical ability

Key to what we do

Work rate Yes, can’t fault it
End product and quality – no, not good enough

His energy is amazing but can have his off-days (seems more frequent recently)
