  1. This is why Palmer has never made it anywhere, he has got no interest in helping the team defensively. He is completely ignoring Aarons and just tucking in to hide.
  2. It makes a nice change for us to have the physical advantage at set pieces.
  3. Could be 4-4-2 with Palmer out wide and Vyner in the middle.
  4. It really is depressing how far backwards we have gone over the past few years. Regardless of whether we scrape a win, this team is awful to watch and it’s not much improved by the players out injured.
  5. They could certainly spot a player. So many of the permanent and loan signings we made in that period have gone on to have really good championship careers, with some achieving Premier League moves. Then when Ashton returned as CEO he and the club claimed it was his talent ID and recruitment system that had been fundamental to it! Funny how the return of Ashton coincided with a change in strategy and a whole host of crap signings.
  6. Rene must have friends in the right places!
  7. I’d like to know how much we are paying him to be assistant coach of the U23’s and a Robins TV commentator.
  8. We’ve got 5 coaches but I can’t remember the last time we attempted a clever set piece.
  9. Whilst it’s unrealistic to think we will be able to get rid of so many players at once and replace them with better ones, I do share the OP’s frustrations with the squad we have compiled. There are not many players in it I would miss watching if they were to leave.
  10. Hence one of the worst value for money signings. If we were signing a 30 year old for £5 million who had consistently scored 20 goals a season at this level then I could understand the risk versus the reward. But Wells has never got 20 championship goals in a season. He is not going to fire us to promotion. He will leave on a free. Meanwhile, Brentford, who walk the walk and not just talk the talk when it comes to recruitment, sign a 24 year old who will either lead them to promotion or get them at least £20 million in the summer.
  11. At the minute Wells looks like he will be one of our worst ever signings in terms of value for money. £5 million for a player who was having a purple patch at the age of 30 and will most likely leave on a free when his contract expires. Not sure how that one fits with the recruitment model the club go on about. We talk a good game but we repeatedly get it so wrong.
  12. We couldn’t have someone come in and disrupt the Bristol City cosy club. We needed someone happy to work within the structure / empire established by the CEO / Director of Football / Head of Recruitment. A “yes” man appointed by said CEO / Director of Football / Head of Recruitment to go with all the other “yes” men / women in senior roles at the club who have been appointed during his tenure. That way no one will dare question the CEO / Director of Football / Head of Recruitment.
