  1. Controversial i know but he's given alot to our club as a player and the manager , i respect him alot for having the balls to manage our club given how well he was doing at barnsley and also the fact he knew he was marmite as a player here and hia appointment wouldnt/didnt go down well with some , his appointment was greeted with some positive some negetive and some meh .... but on the whole hes done well for our club and given us some great highs that far outweigh the lows , the man u game and cup run will define his time here and has given us all memories that will last the next 20 years or

  3. As a person of colour myself it would be nice to see a BAME manager in charge of city, personally don’t care who i offend in saying that i am just speaking from the heart on the matter. Im sure i speak on behalf of all other City fan’s of colour aswell.. It would be a good boundary to break for the club IMO.

  4. I'm glad we won tonight for our own sake, but I'm also pleased we could do Wigan a small favour too. It was announced earlier that Wigan will be deducted 12 points if they finish outside the bottom three. This effectively leaves them 4 points from safety with 4 games to go. There seems to be every chance they've been deliberately sabotaged by their own board. To me, it seems an injustice that they - that is, the fans, players, staff - should be relegated. They're certainly fighting hard. I wish them every luck.

  5. I might be slightly premature here but I do feel we should move him on in the summer. Whether it's up front out wide or in the cam position like today I dont feel he impacts games enough. Yes he works hard but we want promotion and I dont think he is good enough. Not basing this on today would be wrong to after half an hour ....but watching it he does stand out in a not bad but ineffective way.

  6. Embarrassing post by op Thanks for the memories? The boring football, the negative tactics, the unfathomable team selections, subs , formations, the 9 windows and of course the tombola. Yes thanks Lee hope the door didn't bang your arse on the way out, Oh - and Steve says to let you know the £1.5M payoff cheque should be with you by Friday.

  9. If there’s a woman out there with a track record of getting a team to the play offs at Championship level or can show obvious potential to do so By reference to past and/or current performance then go for it. If we are undertaking a social experiment or ticking a equal opportunities box then no thanks.

  12. I read it like that too. Dignified and professional, didn’t burn any bridges and left with more friends than enemies amongst the people he worked with. I think he just ran out of steam and lost his way, too involved mentally and physically and had no where to turn having confused himself and the team. In the Sky interview straight after the match I thought he looked unusually relaxed, maybe relieved if he knew what what was in store for him half an hour later. Gutted as I said before that we didn’t get the ultimate success with him, but this is real life not a Happy Ever After fairy tale.

  13. Just read it. He's definitely a good man and was 100% committed. Shame he wasn't able to get us to the next level. Thank you LJ and good luck.

  14. I doubt there is one single person in this country that uses the term coloured person in a derogatory way I was born in the 1950s and that is how someone of my generation and a few after mine grew up describing African Americans or West Indians there are so many things you can't seem to say now such as Eskimos I'm finding it hard to keep up with the things we not allowed to say and if I'm being honest here a little tiresome.

  15. I dont know what is controversial or embarrassing about the opening post. Johnson obviously held the club dear to his heart and did a very good job overall. It was the right time to change but that doesnt mean he doesnt deserve all the respect and thanks.

  17. I don't look upon this like it's the end, I look upon it like it's moving on you know. It's almost like my work here's done. I can't imagine Jesus going 'Oh, I've told a few people in Bethlehem I'm the son of Gary, can I just stay here with Mum and Dad now?' No. You gotta move on. You gotta spread the word. You gotta go to Nazareth, please. And that's, very much like... me. My world does not end within these four walls, Bristol’s a big place. And when I've finished with Bristol, there's Reading, Oxford, Swindon, you know I've got to Exeter, You know. My Plymouth, Cardiff. Because I am my own b

  19. Maybe it's my rapidly encroaching dotage - I note I am months older than the ancient Chris Hughton - but this apparent obligation to thank someone for a job mediocrely done strikes me as both a bit wet and very PC. I have no personal feelings towards LJ but the dreadful, tedious football he's been responsible for at AG for most of the last 2 seasons has left me bloody miserable football-wise to the extent I fear I was on the verge of losing my lifelong passion for BCFC. That's not a state of affairs I feel moved to want to thank him for, whether that's 'nice' or not.

  22. I’m pretty inspired by a manager who has two promotions at this level and in four full seasons, the lowest he has finished is fourth. The last time we had a decent goal difference at this level (+15 or better) was in 1976 and Hughton did that on all four occasions. In recent years, he played great football at this level with Brighton.

  23. When Pat Lam was interviewed on BT Rugby prior to joining Bristol Rugby, he was bemused when the the football club structure and Ashton's role was mentioned by the reporter. Lam then stated he would have full control. It's seems the Bristol Sport is not consistent. Forget being inundated with applications you would have thought Ashton would have already had a list of possible candidates, the likes of Hughton, Cook, best coaches in the Bundesliga etc. I hope Ashton can convince Hughton to join, and if he's has to concede some control so be it (amend the roles & responsibilities

  25. Yes, instead of gestures before kick off and slogans embroidered on shirts, first try not employing racists and convicted thugs as managers and assistant coaches. Like in almost any other profession.

  26. Whatever terminology is used, what relevance is a person's skin colour anyway? As long as people do continue to make reference to it, whether using the correct current "acceptable" word or not, racism will not go away. Whether Hughton is a good choice for City or not, has absolutely zero to do with the colour of his skin, so why mention it at all?

  30. As I said earlier in the thread. He now has 40 in 120 appearances across all competitions, and that's across only 3 seasons. He plays, he consistently scores 1 in 3, and he can defend set pieces. He's not perfect but he's bloody good.

  33. How very arrogant - Wigan got to the premier league and stayed there for EIGHT seasons and got to the league cup final and won the FA Cup along the way - in comparison we’ve been in the championship since 2015 and many think we are now ‘established’ in this division. I have to say your post is a staggering dismissal of their achievements - they co-exist in a small town alongside a world-renowned rugby league club and they still get bigger crowds than Bristol City, in terms of % of their population. But, hey, let’s put them down and call them a lower league, small club .... we’d have given anyt

  34. Sorry if mentioned elsewhere, but a few telling comments from Taylor (who was great). He suggested that some players were pleased for a fresh start. He said that we had quality like Palmer and Pato and said something to the effect that they were underused. Also mentioned how the chopping and changing was difficult and used Watkins as an example "one week he'd be in the squad and the next he'd be dropped." And credit to the lad for saying that we hate Cardiff and Swansea!

  39. I give my unbiased opinion. Hughton did a good job at Newcastle but I think he's yesterday's man. Lee Bowyer, Joey Barton and Sol Campbell are all exciting young managers I'd be delighted to see replace Parkinson at The S.O.L.. I wouldn't be happy if we appointed Hughton, not that we're in a fit condition to attract any of those four right now. You're lucky to have a rich Bristol City supporter at the top. If he chooses Lee Bowyer over Chris Hughton he'll show he's a man of vision too.

  40. To be fair it can be a little confusing for some that 'people of colour' is fine but 'coloured people' is not. From the context of his post I don't think Hare Island was meaning to be offensive at all and I don't really think he needed to be picked up on it.

  41. Here’s his profile. the reason I posted it originally was initially re there might be a need to change our model between SL and the new manager....to attract the right new manager. Being a bit cynical, MA when he was appointed felt he needed to change the model, so why not a new manager? He introduced a “head of operations” on day one of his official start date who happened to be someone from Oxford Utd, and someone from his sideline consultancy business, that we all know was working behind the scenes prior to his Official appointment a couple of days after Cotts was sacked

  44. The thing that gets on my wick about all these large threads is that they go off at a tangent. I just wish we could stick to any news (good or bad) concerning the matter in hand, just saves people , meaning me, clicking to see the latest and finding out ,there ain't any ! (some hope, I know )

  45. It's part of his remit so this is uncontroversial and unsurprising. Even the rumours about him only using certain agents, I'm afraid that will be the same the football world over. It's what Wolves do and it's turned out ok for them. It's about building up a trusted network of the right people, and guess what....sometimes that's going to include friends and even family members. I seriously doubt any of this will come as a surprise to the likes of Hughton. He spent the best part of 17 years coaching at two of the biggest clubs in England.

  46. You joking right? This season aside, he improved us every season. We were staring relegation in the face when he took over... Some people have very short memories.
