No evidence for that at all in this division.

He has struggled in the Championship almost every time.

Now he did have other focuses at Pompey and Forest like cutting their costs, but the consistent thing with Cotterill managing at this level is a team struggling.

Most new managers take over clubs that are struggling and therefore would be low on confidence, it is the reason they are appointed in the first place.

How many turn it round quickly, not many. It proves that what steve lansdown did (i.e.stick with the long term plan) is probably the best way to resolve

the situation, not pull the trigger 2 or 3 times a season as most of them do.

prime example is hull, what is it now? 7 managers in 18 months?

I care. He gave us an unbelievably successful season and I felt more connected to him as a manager than I have to the years of dross that preceded him. I want him to do well.

Sad times at Brum and a massive club it is . Never liked Cotts but I do wish him luck as he’s gonna need it to still have a job come the new year . Most successful manager in my time watching the Redz and definitely the one who divides opinion the most

When a player or a manager leave City then that's it as far as I'm concerned. They're no longer involved so hold no interest for me.

im surprised that more posters don't have the same view.

The probable exception would be Joe Bryan. If/when he moves on I will follow how he's doing at wherever he might be simply because he's Bristolian.

What kind of question is that?

Atyeo finished his career the same year I first watched City -1967. I have no recollection of him as a player although he probably played in my first game against Oxford.

You said you have no interest in a player when he stops playing for Bristol City, it follows then that you'd have no interest in John Atyeo, given he doesn't currently play for City. How about Gerry Gow, Tainton and the rest of the promotion side?

I’m pleased in which case that has been proven you take a keen interest in Bristolian Marcus Stewart’s current club, so I admire your consistency...

Birmingham's plight only emphasis the ludicrous decision making by the owner/chief executive a year ago.

Staggering to think that our owner resisted the temptation, and pressure from fans, to get rid of LJ when we were losing games on the trot and dropping down the table like a stone, at exactly the same time that Birmingham decided to get rid of the manager that had got them to 7th in the table and right in contention for the pay offs - a decision almost certainly at odds with the thoughts and wishes of just about every Birmingham fan.

Only one owner's decision and judgement is now being vindicated.

Another example to prove how lucky we are to to have SL here.

why click on the thread then? troll.

fwiw Cotts gave us the best season we’ve had in recent memory and some of the happiest times as a City fan. for that I’ll keep a keen eye on wherever he goes from here and wish him the best

They got rid of Rowett in part because they wanted a 'big name'. Much as many of our fans did last season.

The lesson perhaps is that you need the right man not the most famous one.

They didn’t trust Rowett to use the money they’d got from investors wisely.

How wrong did they get it!

He is struggling there like he did here in this league - no longer up to it at this level. No surprise. Did amazing for us in League 1 but it was correct decision to get rid.

Exactly.

Very capable lower league manager. Out of his depth in the Championship.

I must be in the minority here then and didn't want Cotts to go at the time and feel if he had the backing LJ has had then he too would have had greater success in the Championship.

Regardless, he still gave me the best season I have ever had as a City fan and I will never forget what he achieved. 

He is a City legend for me.

Cotterill was sacked because he didn't adhere to the strategy of developing young players from the academy or from signings from other clubs.

He went to SL for money to buy Andre Grey or Dwight Gale saying that he'd got all that he could from the existing squad. Lansdown wouldn't have it and decided to bring in a manager who would buy into the strategy - and in came LJ  who has adhered to the strategy and that's a huge factor in why SL backed him last season.

Steve Cotterill

 

Having a tough time at Brum but have to say he’s learnt a thing or two about talking to fans since his exit from us... :fear:

 

Fair play to him though takes some balls to talk to angry supporters after a dreadful display 

Fair play to Lucas Jutkiewiecz in that. Speaks really well and has the balls to speak to the angry fans and really talk them through what's gone on with the game calmly and with a great deal of honesty. I don't hang around after games to speak to players so don't know if our players would do the same but would be good to think they do (I'm sure some of them do) or have done when the merde was hitting the vent axia!

You are right on the strategy, Cotts didn't show much interest in that. However, SL was prepared to stump up the money but the players concerned were never likely to sign for us.

The likes of Brownhill, O'Dowda and Paterson would not have interested him, he wanted the finished article.

You know all that as fact or it is your opinion?

I can believe what you have said mind you but doesn't change my view.

Exactly.

Whether it was Cotterill wanting money for an established striker or his failure to adopt the youngster strategy that pissed SL off the most, we'll never know.

Probably a combination of the two..
