  1. Wishful thinking from the gas editor I expect
  2. Absolutely,ties in neatly with the Angus Scott thread. The Lansdown way or the highway.
  3. I never once said cotterill was a genius,he did deliver us a league title and a minor cup though. Cotterill was Keith Dawes pick and was appointed as MANAGER at his insistence, cotterill wanted complete control over playing and transfer dealing and for 18 months it seemed a marriage made in heaven. But then the owners wanted to play with their toy and the relationship soured, the owners now have their own hand picked family friend as HEAD COACH, a man who will listen and have ideas "bounced off him" to the owners. You can Call it conspiracy theory's,Bulls**t whatever, i call it ignoring the obvious. its of no consequence, it's too late now, Steven Lansdown will sail his ship how he sees fit, he owns it.
  4. What evidence are you expecting to see? pointless arguing, I know I'm right and you dont believe it, it doesn't matter. Im not blowing smoke up cotterills ass, he infuriated me at times and no doubt would have been sacked sooner or later but do you not think after that glorious double season he deserved the same backing as lee Johnson has had? He didn't and was sacked at the first opportunity, why was that?
  5. Correct you set up transfers in the summer, but do you come back from holiday to find certain people had tried to renegotiate them and they have collapsed?
  6. Cotts was far from innocent but it got to a stand off between him and the owners. Ask around about the gray, Gayle and maguire transfers, that was the start of the friction which escalated as the season progressed. As an aside, do you think that steve cotterills record with city was better or worse than our current manager?
  7. No he got the bullet because of a massive fall out with the Lansdowns over their interference in transfers and playing matters. Cotts would not bend the knee to sir Steven
  8. It's out there in football circles mate, trouble is people don't like to put their head above the parapet.
  9. Do we really need it spelling out for us? Steve and John Lansdown interfere with team matters, it's why cotterill got the bullet and why lee Johnson is still in a job. We won't get a decent manager until that situation changes
  10. Perhaps Lansdown wants to see his first love playing at 'his' stadium, Bristol rovers.
  11. Agreed, years ago the board would have been on the end of a fearful bollocking, and the players left in no doubt what was required. Now it's mutely clapping them off and afraid to say anything in case it offends our glorious owner. The fans have become soft and fluffy which I suppose is the direction mr Lansdown has been driving 'Bristol sport' in for years.
  12. Completely at odds with the managers statement from last week, "there are cliques in the dressing room" and"perhaps we need to socialise more" cant really blame wilbs, he's employed by Bristol city, he might even believe what he's saying, who knows? One things for sure, things aren't right at the club and if the Fulham performance didn't make it crystal clear to some people, nothing ever will.
  13. In the 70s and 80s it was de'riguer to attempt to enter the home sides popular 'end' either by massing in there before kick off or attempting to force a way in after kick off, these days thankfully that sort of thing has been eradicated, however the dilution of the football hooligan scene has led to certain groups to deem it acceptable to try to gain entry to home pubs using the same methods, Rotherham being an example of the late arrival trick. It is a fact that in several pubs around Ashton gate you will find city fans still drinking long after kick off and indeed making no effort to go to the game. Some people may find this laughable or unbelievable but it's true and it happens. It seems the police intelligence have a little snooze between 3 and 5
  14. Love the franchise bit from those idiots! Let's see, a team who have played in their traditional heartland for 100 odd years and have now redeveloped their traditional home or a nomadic team of scuffling misfits who have played in bristol, bath, back in bristol at a rugby ground and want to move to south Gloucestershire! You couldn't make it up.
