  1. Poppies on shirts, guess which Club

    Not Irish mate
  2. Advertising Boards

    @Mkelly This is surely the correct option? No personal attack on you here, but the hoardings on Tuesday were a joke, and advising a % change is too abstract, sit in the Lansdown lower and see what it looks like, and then test until its acceptable. Surely this is agreeable?
  3. SSN last night.....

    Tbf it doesn't bother me too much, however the Beeb write up is quite horrific.... http://m.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41235275
  4. Lansdown the real story

    He is a billionaire businessman ploughing his money into the club. Do people really expect him to be a media savvy middle of the road interviewee? Geoff did a good job pushing for something sensational and got a few poorly worded answers, but little that was worth the furore on here. People moan when they hear the same old interview littered with clichés, yet when someone strays from a pr script the same people get upset. He has invested more than anyone. Fact. He knows the buck stops with him. Fact. He is sticking to his principles, which we may not agree with right now, but just maybe he has learnt his lessons the hard way re managers. He has the right to do this as he is the owner, the same way 91 other clubs are run, rightly or wrongly. Who is next on the hitlist?

    Bring in players with "potential" when we needed players for the here and now - then sack the coach who is trying to develop said potential. Talk about insulating yourself, no lose situation for Ashton. If we gamble on transfers and had succeeded he is a genius, gamble and fail blame the coaches - genius. As a club we have lost all humility, it's toxic and will take years to repair. football clubs are built on people, look at the ones our club is built on right now - depressing.

    I may be wrong, but it isn't naivety - I know what MA and co are about - But I was told by someone unconnected to our club, that knows him, that DT has been plotting an escape for a while.
  7. Mark ashton

    Des Taylor was not sacked, not even close, look where he has gone!
  8. Recruitment

    He's gone - nature of his role means it won't always be made public I guess - step up for him...
  9. Recruitment

    Wait til you see which club he has gone too!
  10. Recruitment

    Consulting on biscuits, the state of the middle east and the early works of Shakespeare... He is a recruitment consultant, and should be judged as such. January was a huge opportunity for us to get back on track, the only player signed so far that looks like they know how to win in this division is Cotterill, and that surely is no surprise as we know he can play at this level - I am not a huge LJ fan, but he alone is not to blame

    umm, not wanting to hammer a point to much, but direct quote from the link A former West Bromwich Albion goalkeepoer, he worked with the club in a consultancy capacity during EDerek McInnes's reign as manager.

  12. Recruitment

    Just checked, defo here with McInnes as per this article: http://www.bristolpost.co.uk/bristol-city-robins-appoint-mark-ashton-chief/story-28539468-detail/story.html My point being, it feels a little like deja vue in the way we are gambling again
  13. Recruitment

    He was here, as a consultant... Think the players you listed were Burt/Cotterell, may be wrong of course!
  14. Recruitment

    Mark Ashton has previous, at this club! the McInnes era... The last window tells you everything you need to know, we needed players who knew this division and how to compete, how many of our Jan signings have experience in this division? Or even English football? We gambled, its failed, we now need to hope the players who were here under previous managers can save us. All praise Mr Ashton.
  15. If Jono is Sacked - MARK ASHTON MUST GO!

    So.... Mr Ashton was employed by us in a similar role when a Mr McInnes was in charge - I seem to remember a bloated, ill balanced squad with little quality.... History repeating
