  1. Some very positve points there WR and I’m actually starting to look forward to the new season a bit now, after the original disappointment of how the head coach appointment panned out. Let’s hope Deano can get us playing the brand of footbal he’s been alluding to and maybe next season won’t be so bad after all.
  2. I hadn’t realised he’d played with Nakhi at Huddersfield, so a great shout in that case. I really hope we can get something out of him this year, ss he’s clearly got talent and it makes you wonder what he would have done if he’d been here in our high tempo purple patch in late ‘17. It’s possible we could be looking towards playing a similar style again, so it could be really exciting to see what he could do with that fast playing style and Nakhi’s mobility and pace. KP was never going to shine in the ponderous, slow build up’s we had under LJ in the last couple of years. Could
  3. Would certainly be worth giving it a go to check if can strike up a similar pertnership as he did with Benik, as they are both far more mobile than Fammy. KP could be good for picking out Nakhi’s runs, though Walsh may possibly offer the same passing ability, plus more of an all-round game too. KP really does need to prove his worth this season though.
  4. I won’t be getting back on all those points we are clearly discussion totally different issues, as I certainly haven’t been aware of any fan on here who thinks they should be picking the team! You certainly make a very careful swerve around my main point, which is what is happening with this year’s season tickets. As you like to point out, there are a lot of decisions the club make that we aren’t party to, but when the subject is them hanging on to our money and giving us no indication what it will actually buy us, then we’ve got every right to object. Before you point out the
  5. ‘Blindly’ in my book can certainly be used as, in spite of seeing the issues, you’ll still carry on accepting any treatment they dish out because ‘you can’t do anything about it’. The club needs to be held accountable and questioned when needed, but you’ve made it clear that isn’t your view or desire. That’s your choice, just as it is for others, who feel the need to ask why the club are so piss poor at respecting fans who’ve paid good money for next season’s ST and yet still don’t have a clue what’s going to happen. A simple email update would be very handy but we get absolutely
  6. Sorry but referring to anyone who doesn’t blindly follow whatever the club wants you believe as ‘the mob’, really doesn’t do you any credit whatsoever my friend! I certainly do understand understand what the unconditional support business means, but usually, as you get older and hopefully wiser, that usually tends to lesson as you’ve heard all the bullshit before. The fact we can’t change anything the. Lub chooses to fo, or how they do it, doesn’t make it any more palatable. 20,000+ Bat Fastard’s would be an absolute dream ticket for the club, but it just isn’t going to happen.
  7. Depending on the personal point of view of any particular supporter, you are either very lucky, or very unfortunate in your unconditional support for the club Bat. People have been talking about the massive improvements the club have made in various areas, which they undoubtedly have. One area they appear to be massively underachieving though, is their communication and engagement with the fanbase, probably in part due to dumping people like Adam Baker, who clearly had a real connection and empathy with the supporters. It seems this either completely goes over your head, or your lev
  8. No, blackmail is when you’re holding someone to ransom. The powers that be at the Club won’t be quivering in their boots when he says he’s had enough and pleading with him to change his mind, are they? He’s giving his reasons why he no longer wants to follow City, plain and simple and I have many of the same feelings as him tbh. Some of the comments aimed at him were bang out of order. If some supporters have an unconditional love affair with this club then fair enough, but not all of us are as tolerant or forgiving when it appears the club are treating us as idiots. If trust
  9. You’ve obviously read what you wanted to see in the OP’s post, rather than what was actually written there. I didn’t read every word for sure, but I didn’t see anything about spending squillions, but more that SL should listen to people with far more football knowledge than he clearly has, rather than having an attitude of, this is my club, so I’ll do what I like with it. Yes, he’s ploughed millons into this club, but a good few of those millions have been wasted, due to his own bad decisions. He surely wouldn’t have made himself a billionaire if Hargreaves Lansdown had been run in the
  10. I suppose it really depends if this is just a temporary move, or a complete sea change. It looked like LJ was getting increasingly like his his father and avoiding using young home-grown players unless he had no other options. We now have loads who have been on loan in the lower leagues, but little of no Championship experience. If they are going to just use this season to restart the flow of these players coming through and give more of them the Championship experience they need, then I can see the sense in that. This would be the best way for the club to get the maximum value f
  11. Good on you and will be rooting for you against those muppets in League 1 as well
  12. Any Prem ambitions have at the very least been put on hold now, if not scrapped. He may be happy to settle with Bristol Rugby being at the top table, as that costs far less to maintain.
  13. Richie Wellens definitely seems to fit the mould of a very promising up and coming manager and he could well take you places if you can hang onto him. RW wouldn’t work here by the sound of it, as SL doesn’t seem to get on with managers who speak their mind. This is probably a large part of why it eventually went tits up with Steve Cotterill (who apparently hadn’t been SL’s choice in the first place).
  14. I think our issue is that our owner is well aware of financial regulations and will always stay within them. That’s not a criticism in itself, but, I think he’s naturally cautious and has an absolutely terrible record in choosing managers, but appears to think he knows best. He’s proved on numerous occasions that while he’ll spend big money on players, he seemingly just doesn’t appreciate the value of investing in the best manager/head coach that he can get. I think he’s messed up big time on this one and although our CEO is taking a lot of the flack (and does seem a slimeball btw),
  15. We both had a really interesting and enjoyable chat a few weeks ago Shaun, about all things Bristol City and Swindon. I was discussing how much we’ve got going for us as a club, but how we always manage to bollox it up when it really counts. This head coach fiasco is a prime, gold plated example, complete with bells and whistles, of how completely we can **** it up when we’re really on our game. This is how we roll down here in Bristol City land!!!
