The Robins faced their biggest test so far this season, as they faced a trip to Pep Guardiola’s rampant City side, looking to be the first team to inflict a domestic defeat on them this season. 

Lee Johnson can’t fault his lads for their efforts in last night’s game, after adopting a counter-attack based tactic that saw his men take the lead at half-time thanks to the tireless work of striker Bobby Reid, who calmly dispatched his penalty.

But, as Manchester City did at the weekend.

They fought back from a losing position, to score two second-half goals that saw a proud but demoralised Robins team walk off the pitch at the Etihad as the full-time whistle sounded.

Nevertheless, Bristol City fans caught a first glimpse at their new signing Liam Walsh after he was brought on late in the second-half, following his switch from Premier League club Everton.

The midfielder made his debut, and was pretty impressive as he adopted a dogged approach to constantly harass the City midfielder’s in the middle of the park.

Nevertheless, after the game their new signing took to his personal Twitter account (@liamwalsh_6) to thank the fans for their support, while showing the pleasure of making his debut for the Robins.

Following the player’s message, fans looked to welcome their new man as they praised his performance after being brought on as a substitute.

So without further ado, here’s a look at exactly what City supporters made of the message…
