  1. New contract for Taylor according to Pete O'Rourke Pete O'Rourke @SportsPeteO Highly-rated Bristol City defender Taylor Moore has agreed a new long-term deal at the club. #bristolcityfc
  2. Didn't mean to imply they'd tricked anyone (purposefully) - just questioned the strategy. I didn't see the tweets until the whole thing had been announced but I can definitely see how some people would be a bit disappointed. The replies to the teaser tweet indicate that many people didn't pick up on the hint. It's just a bit of a shame really because the result has been a piece of good news (and yet another success story from the academy) that has ended up being a bit disappointing for people expecting more. It's a very small example but to me yet again indicates a wider misunderst
  3. Well obviously you'd make a point of disagreeing . I'm sure you understand the point really, just choosing to be contrarian as usual. Did you read the replies to the teaser? Almost all replies predicted Diedhiou or Walsh. The club didn't necessarily do anything wrong there - just a bit unfair on O'Leary who would've been a bit of an anti-climax for most people.
  4. Diedhiou is a high profile first team player who hasn't signed a contract. O'Leary doesn't have the same profile. Sending out a teaser tweet about 'contract news' is naturally going to make people think it's one of our high profile first team players - not (with all due respect) our second choice goalkeeper. You only have to look at the replies to the teaser to see who people thought it was - Walsh was the other one.
  5. He’s just a troll I wouldn’t bother. Latest reincarnation of Londoner. Had many different aliases.
  6. Good post. I think this paragraph is a very important factor. I said similar myself earlier in the thread. Easy to say you’d have acted differently but in that situation I think it would be a tricky one to handle when everyone wants a piece of you. Again though it brings it back to whether the timing was right - it’s pretty obvious in that environment what might happen.
  7. Have I missed something, what’s the relevance here?
  8. Did a teaser tweet before the reveal. It had a niche 90s Simpson’s reference to ‘Max Power’ (ie Max O’Leary) which would’ve gone right over the head of many people reading. Shouldn't have bothered with the teaser because fans got the wrong idea.
  9. Lots of fans understandably thought it was going to be Famara after the build up the social media team gave it before the reveal. It’s silly because this is a good piece of news concerning another young player which fans should celebrate. Tricking fans into thinking it might be Diedhiou means this O’Leary news is an anticlimax and isn’t fair on Max. Why would they do that? Error of judgement or yet again failing to understand the support?
  10. It’s a talking point because it was good to see. It’s great to see a manager engage with fans and local businesses. No one is criticising him for that. People are a bit concerned about the potential attention that could come from the pictures doing the rounds that indicate there were little/no covid precautions taken at the event.
  11. In his defence I imagine it’s quite awkward (if lads who’ve been had a couple of drinks) come up to you, try to shake your hand and greet you. It’s difficult to decline that sort of interaction without seeing aloof or rude. That’s clearly not the sort of guy Holden is. It is naive and arguably rather negligent but a tricky one to handle.
  12. ? It happened and is being publicised in many places. What’s the issue? It’s not a massive secret he went.
  13. Good promo for the photographer and pub, but perhaps not very wise!
  14. Looks like the pub did, the club wouldn’t do that.
  15. I think with Holden he really is a genuine chap. It’s a cliche, but he’s exactly what you’d call a ‘salt of the earth’ guy. I don’t recall a manager who was as unanimously liked by the support (regardless whether you thought he was the best possible appointment we could have made) as he is.
