  1. Hopefully it's fairly obvious from this: I'd like it to be Hughton. I believe he is the candidate most likely to take us onto the next level. Steven Gerrard is apparently keen on moving back south of the border and he would be my second choice, assuming he is interested - and I believe he may be. I realise that contradicts the above post however I consider him to have a unique x-factor and presence that could be genuinely exciting to see at Ashton Gate. He is a born leader of men and a winner with experience in football at the highest level.
  2. Chris Hughton, as an example, does not strike me as somebody who is confrontational, but nor does he strike me as somebody who is controllable. There is a happy medium and if we can't accommodate somebody like Hughton then, of course, you would seriously have to question why.
  3. Must admit I didn't take that from the interview at all. Which bits made you think that? SL is very clear in the aim of Premier League football asap (I'm actually surprised about how explicit he is being about that) and appointing an inexperienced candidate is going to leave himself open to considerable criticism if it goes wrong.
  4. Yeah, but we can offer litre bottles of Natch and day-trips to Guernsey on Steve's private jet. So, swings and roundabouts really
  5. Of course not. Jorge Mendes is probably the world's leading agent. Ashton's reputation in the game is still decent. Don't think we had a relationship with a club like Chelsea before he arrived, for example...
  6. 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.
  7. I wholeheartedly agree. But that's not the point that is being made by people. They are saying Hughton/McCarthy wouldn't come here because they wouldn't have full control over transfers. They haven't in previous jobs and wouldn't at any Prem or top Championship side. So our set-up in not unique, nor is it a barrier to being able to attract a manager of their ilk.
  8. A DoF would be a prudent addition to the club. I expect in his head SL probably thinks he and JL are the directors of football at AG, and so another isn't needed.
  9. Same as it ever was in the world of football....
  10. One suspects LJ is thinking the same... Imagine if he'd stayed fit all season
  11. Regrettably it's the correct call. Wells was signed to replace him and we can't afford both. Plus his recent injury record makes him too high a risk signing.
  12. Around £600k salary. I'd have thought Hughton would want around double that, but that's a guess. Rumour was we paid Coppell a £1m salary. We can afford Hughton, if we want him.
  13. Eliasson won't sign a new deal. Was told that ages ago. Knows he can get a bigger move and more money once his contract ends here.
