  1. Staying up. Enthusiasm back. Club and new manager vision/ambitions aligned so both agree to take into long term contract. Manager allowed to reorganise/evolve plan in all football matters. We all look forward to getting back into grounds safely for the new season and enjoy supporting City again.
  2. This wouldn’t be my first choice, liked Cook. However there’s no doubting Pearson’s pedigree. The other factor is the initial length of the appointment. He is obviously a motivator, fire-fighter and organiser. At the moment this is exactly what we need. Both parties can suss eachother out. If he’s a success, then he’ll either want to stay and be happy with the structure or we will see the benefit in going the extra mile in accommodating him in terms of his overall influence on football decisions iwithin the club as well as financially. If it doesn’t work, then we either go down, or s
  3. Lansdown mentioned about one or two names that they might want to approach added to the initial list. Does anyone think that this means there are actual names they like that they see fitting in to the structure or is he just supposing a couple of names might turn up. Surely they must have had thoughts on some people in mind and been sounding out while things have been so dire. They don’t do business behind backs. All very honourable, but football isn’t an honourable business. Nobody would want to knife someone in the back, but if things are going so badly wrong any organisation worth it’s salt
  4. Woah! Rico Henry looks to have just pulled up with a hamstring injury. Blimey, the Bristol City virus has spread.
  5. Coventry 2-0 up, playing high press in attack. Mark Robins done a good job there.
  6. He was certain Holden was his main in the context of the “type of arrangement we wanted”, as he states early in this interview. This is the key. What in real terms is that criteria. This means that of whoever applied (and we believe there was huge interest from many candidates with good reputations) that they were not up to the criteria and Dean emerged the stand out candidate. Does the criteria for the job remain the same, or is there some deviation/reforming of it now we are searching from our new manager. It may seem obvious to some, and let’s face it, there are loads of theories
  7. What now for a strange signing whodescribed our departed coach as exciting? Oh yes the treatment table. Seriously, a strange signing. I thought he might have been a bit of a Paul Hartley motivator type, but although a decent player, hasn’t seemed to have added anything influential to games. This does smack of desperately bringing in any name and hope it works.
  8. How have we ended up with so many weak footballers when the club insist it instigates such a forensic look into making sure they have the right DNA?!! Or are the recruitment aspects of our club weak, therefore the players DNA is a perfect match.
  9. They’ve had a few half decent managers/coaches over the last couple of seasons. Even though they’ve changed managers, whenever I’ve seen them play (mainly highlights admittedly), they still manage to play decent football considering their budget.
  10. Yep, looked really good against Chelsea midweek too.
  11. Barnsley 2-0 up as I type!
  12. Absolutely, I think the fact that they seemed more relaxed and informal interviews gave the whole thing a more of a “chat down the pub” feel, it felt a more open discussion that might not have come from the normal media outlets, as naturally the interviewee often feels a bit more guarded.
  13. I enjoy all people’s opinions City related whether agree with them or not, especially since lockdown and not being able to get to the ground at the minute. At least it gives some outlet to share the misery or enjoy the better(?!!!) bits of following City. Have to say, fair play to @Shtanley for his Cider withs... They were excellent, and as good if not better than you get from established broadcasters in terms of the content that @Shtanley managed to draw out of the interviewee. I also like the contrast in styles of FBC and OSIB. I’m 62 but enjoy both. I’ll have to try the other po
  14. I now subscribe to the thinking that it would be better if Ashton left. This is not necessarily because of the so say corporate speak, etc., but basically for 5 years since he arrived things in the main are not working. Yes, we have received good fees for some players, but we have not achieved the goals in terms of the investment we have made from this activity. Quite simply the lack of coherent style of play and organisation of resources (team/players) are not good enough. Ultimately the accountability for this has to come down to the people/person who employ the coaches, staff responsible fo
