    In terms of Lansdown's influence, there are three things that stick out that back all this up. 1. When Tinnion was struggling as manager, we had a home game on the tv against Colchester. We played nervously and drew 0-0. In those days SL took questions from fans on otib. One fan said that Tinnion must have made a real mess-up of the teamtalk. Lansdown said that he was in the dressing room before the match for the teamtalk and it was fine. Should a chairman be in the dressing room? 2. We recently learnt that SL and LJ talk before and after a game. I would find this an oppressive environment to work in, but ideal for a jolly yes man like Millen, or someone who can talk the talk like LJ. For a man who can do the job like Cotterill, not so much. Alex Ferguson never spoke to the Glazers about football once. 3. After Coppell left, he went on Talk Sport. They asked him why he quit BCFC. He said "I was a bit disappointed with the environment I found myself in." Very telling remark from a manager who had succeeded and who knew what a successful environment at a football club looks like. And he bolted after only a few months!!!
  2. LJ will be given the Wolves game ...

    It's here at 12:12
  3. Next Video off the rank 1996-97 part 2

    Mate I really appreciate you putting up these videos, thanks a lot.
  4. What Denis Smith said about BCFC afterwards.

    Whoops, sorry everyone, it was 10 pages taken from his autobiography, lots on Cole and Jackie and arguments with the board, I will try and get it into a format that you all can see, technology is not my strong point...................................................
  5. Been there, done that

    Exactly, TDP. John Ward's last game in charge was a stirring 2-1 home win on a Friday night on tv against Bolton. We were two places OUTSIDE the relegation zone when he left. Benny lost his first two games 5-1 and 5-0, could hardly speak English, took us to the bottom of the league, and that is where we finished at the end of the season.
  6. He'll go after Burton.

    Link anyone?
  7. Price Waterhouse Cooper

    Anyone know how this rumour started?
  8. Did the Coppell saga 'scar' SL ?!

    After leaving City Steve Coppell gave an interview to Talk Sport. He was asked about why he left Bristol City. He paused, and said "I was a bit disappointed with the environment I found myself in."
  9. He will be sacked tomorrow

    Cheers pal.
  10. He will be sacked tomorrow

    8menhadadream, that is an awesome website that shows a team's result like that. Have you got a link?
