  1. Just driving past the two storey framed structure of the new training ground building at Failand this morning you realise that SL won't be leaving the next managerial appointment to chance. The new training facility which will also house the u-23s is a multi-million pound development that will be ready in around 9 months. There is absolutely no way he has invested this kind of off-field money to employ a novice, or someone of limited experience, to run. Bristol City is now a sizeable club and a sizeable project that requires a manager with plenty of experience at Championship and Pr

  2. People show some respect and don’t act like utter *****. Perhaps time for a freshen up but have to appreciate the job he’s done. Thanks for the memories lee

  3. Two words I think this forum lacks sometimes. Its so sad reading grown men calling LJ a "clown" and phrases like "get out of my club". Can we as a fan base just not acknowledge that the current setup of LJ, MA and JL have progressed this club, and that the journey has simply run its course? Lets be thankful for the work that Lee has done in making us a stable, and lets not forget, RESPECTED, Championship club. Things that we haven't be able to say before LJ took the reins. Everyone has a level, and to be honest I think Lee at the moment has hit that ceiling, for whatever reason.

  5. City 1 wolves 2, was this the day that started the very slow decline, it never felt the same after that, that season was the best I have ever seen Bristol city play in my life. i genuinely felt that if we won that game we could have pushed on, it seemed to knock the stuffing out of us. we had a settled side playing great football, since then the constant changing of team and his own uncertainty and over thinking took over.

  7. Lots of disrespectful comments here. You may not care, but the guy has been in charge here for 4.5 years and the majority of us are genuinely interested in where he goes next. Personally, I reckon his reputation is pretty much intact. His next job will be at this level. And him having time up here shouldn’t change that. If you don’t care - don’t comment. But also don’t kick a good man when he’s down.

  8. Give this guy a go. He can't do any worse than LJ. Played regularly for Arsenal and England at centre half. Loads of experience under good managers. 6ft 4ins tall. Would get respect from players. Has plenty of contacts. Gained experience with Macclesfield where he did a great job. Not so sure about Southend. But also a decent guy.

  9. Not that long ago, we had a forward thinking young first team coach being rightly given plaudits far and wide for the pressing, neat passing interchange, football we were playing. Who can forget that memorable win over Man.Utd. Then it came to the pivotal league match at home to Wolves, we got a deserved 1-0 lead against 10 men and LJ gambled in leaving Aden Flint up front as he went for the 2nd killer goal. It was a gamble that back fired badly as Wolves came back to win, exposing the defensive space where Flint should have been. So the seeds of doubt were sown, and despite some swansong

  10. I know people don’t want to hear this but we did play well & if we had played like this over the last 9 games more would be happy. At the moment there is a hell of a lot of hindsight & sadly people wanting us to lose so they can bang their “LJ out” drum, but we were the better side first half against a top six side & on the balance of the game, deserved a point. Not what many want to hear at present though, is it?

  12. For all that his times up, I think the one thing that can’t be levied at LJ is that he doesn’t care about the club. He does. If he’d gone after Blackburn or Wednesday, he’d have gone after some shocking performances. If he goes after tonight, he leaves after a performance with some fight, but an acknowledgement that he’s just come up short (stop laughing). I don’t want him to have his Tinnion moment. Until this year, he’s improved us YOY position wise, and he can actually go after that game with a degree of pride and his wider reputation in the game relatively untarnished. None

  13. Four years of progress - so maybe we could forgive the odd blip in extraordinary times. Lee is central to a large project to keep building the club towards sustainability. We have a new stadium and will soon have a new training ground and the land adjacent to AG will be developed. Huge numbers of developing players have been loaned out to play good level football and will increasingly be available for the first team squad. Patience is a virtue with such development. Lee is a good frontman for City and speaks and behaves well, has developed a good infrastructure of medical and co

  14. Having watched and enjoyed many re-wind games from all levels over the last 3 months, I have come to the conclusion that "modern" endless passing football is pretty drab, dull and boring. It looks really good when Barcelona play it at pace but we are not Barcelona and the kind of game where we knock the ball around aimlessly between the GK, defence and midfield with no real purpose or intent is boring as hell. In fact, watching a bucket of paint dry is more entertaining. I'm not advocating a return to just hammering the ball up the field as far as you can but somewhere in the process, t

  17. Just a ‘ thank you ‘ to SL for putting everyone out of their misery . You are an honourable man and gave LJ everything he needed to do the job which finally was too big for him . LJ gave his all and it is always sad to say ‘ goodbye ‘ and accept a failure . We now need your positivity, bring into the club a head coach who can move us up , the best man available. We will be right there with you supporting the club .

  18. Why has Massengo suddenly become the object of derision on OTIB, with many (who were no doubt lauding him as a major talent bought under the nose of the PL and singing about his hair) now claiming him to be vastly overrated. He's an18 Yr old FFS who has played many more games than expected in his first year. He may not be in form at present but as a midfielder he's miles in front of COD and he always gives everything on the pitch, which is more than can be said about KP45. Let's get off the kids back and give him support.

From looking at social media, he was at it from early morning yesterday right until the later hours. Have a bit of respect for someone who’s trying to fix something that wasn’t his doing.

  23. So this old chestnut got wheeled out again today... It’s an excuse that he uses for years on end. I just wish he’d stop signing players he can’t trust. Another good one is “we've gotta win the inches a little bit more.” What does that mean? I challenge anyone to watch that video and not see David Brent when he says “win the inches”. That’s just management talk Lee. Must be so great to be so comfortable in a job knowing that you can seriously underperform and no one will do a single thing about it! https://twitter.com/BristolCity/status/1274390818321772544?s=20

  25. I understand the sentiment, but you have absolutely no idea what people's financial situation is suddenly like. From February til now, an awful lot has changed. There's an insane amount of people I know personally who have been made redundant and lost their jobs. Suddenly that guaranteed income they had back in February has gone, a lot more people now looking for work thus harder to find employment. I'm playing devil's advocate here, I still have a job, I've been working non stop throughout this entire thing, can only dream of the state paying 80% of my wage whilst I do housework and whatever.

  27. I would urge supporters not to gather at or near to grounds, the biggest reason being the dreaded r factor in the south west and the risk of covid to not just yourself but spreading to others. The situation once games start is continually being reviewed by police/ clubs and the fa and their biggest worry is groups of fans gathering and risk of further spreading . police numbers are stretched everywhere in the uk at the moment and it would be great for football fans not to place more burden on policing at this very torrid time.

  32. So in the time that LJ has “stabilised“ us in the Championship, likely missing out on the Playoffs for the 3rd season in a row, good managers like Nuno Espirito Santo and Chris Wilder have come in and not just taken 4 years to remain in the same league, but actually achieved something tangible. How else do you explain that Wolves are currently 6th in the Premier League and still in the Europa League, with Sheffield United are 7th in the Premier League, while we are 9th in the Championship and going backwards at increasing speed? Hint to Steve Lansdown - If you want things to change, don’t

  35. If you gave LJ Cristiano Ronaldo, I am not sure I would trust LJ to get the best out of him. LJ actually is the proof that it’s far more than just the players, it’s the person who is supposed to pick the team, chose the tactics etc, who can have the greatest overall effect, both positive and negative. The truth is that he’s not really a particularly good coach/manager. He’s not the worst, but he’s full of management speak, and believes he’s better than he actually is. He also never takes any responsibility for a poor performance: everything is perfect in preparation, it’s just the players that

  36. I want LJ out but get so sick of this nonsense. He's managed here for four years and, until now, improved our league position season on season. Crap managers in this division, regardless of club, get found out and get a team relegated. Look how quickly a succession of Coppell, Millen, McInnes and SOD turned a top half team into relegation candidates for evidence of that. LJ has taken us as far as he can and should move on but anyone who thinks he has been an absolutely terrible manager has an incredibly short memory. We've had plenty of terrible managers in the past and he isn't one

  38. The club should be utterly ashamed of that statement and whoever signed off that press release should not be working for the club. Veiled threats and guilt tripping fans. I notice this press release has been planned so fans have little or no chance to have dialogue with the club. Fans are legally entitled to a refund if they require it, I am so angry how badly this is been handled. I don't need the money but out of principle I will ask for a refund, if that in someway affects my ST renewal then you can cancel that and refund me. @JerrySLO it woul be nice if our supposed SLO would

Not a word of appreciate it's a hard time, people have lost loved ones, etc etc & that they know every person is different and any refund could genuinely help them put food on the table for the next month or two. the statement is literally just IF YOU WANT YOUR MONEY BACK YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO SEE US PLAY AGAIN THIS SEASON, BYE & was so obviously scrambled together this afternoon in the space of about an hour

  41. Loyalty is a quality in life . A foundation that one can build a future on and SL has it in spades . However when that loyalty is blind to the facts then it just becomes a sort of folly. How many loyal people have been mistreated by a partner that cheats on them by abusing the trust ? I quote SL , ’ "You build a team, you build a team that you trust, you build a team that are real mates together - even now that [Bristol City] team [of 1976] still comes back and spends time here at Aston Gate when they can- and it’s that magic moment when it comes together," explained Lans

Bored of always being the second best to just about every club in the Championship. There can’t be many clubs who fear us over the past couple of seasons. Football is dull, passionless and pretty much pointless. I can’t begin to predict or understand team selections or tactics. Something has to change. I think I strangely would be upset if Lee went. Basically I think he is a good guy but we sh

Buy 2 of the best defenders in the league with Dasilva and kalas. Cant score ... Must be midfield then, buy massengo and Nagy ... need creativity in attack ... spend 4 mill on Kasey Palmer ... things n
