  1. Our head of sports science only had seven months experience at Stevenage before joining us ? Is that common for multi million pound set ups ?
  2. Wells gets the golden Boot.... well earned
  3. Doesn't he have just one year left on his contract with bigger clubs sniffing around him. Can't see the sense in loaning him to a league one club. He's gone around a few clubs before signing for us, we need to get him involved in the first team squad and how he signs a contract as he is the most promising of our youngsters ATM
  4. As its the home of our teams and staff, they should have called it Robins Nest
  5. So is there some sort of resettlement package available to tea ladies ? How has she been able to afford to follow MA around... Buy a kettle and some manky coffee / sugar containers and make it yourselves !!
  6. Can someone post direct links, I always struggle to find the current podcast. I like OSIB, though the presenter does have a rather monotone flat voice, which makes him sound bored out of his mind ( but probably better than my high pitched wailing). Forever Bristol City, as someone mentioned. You will listen to say Ian for a few minutes bouncing all over the place, and just as he finally gets close to the point / answering the question will get interrupted and talked over by the host... And it happens continually, I like that he challenges views etc .. but it gets irksom
  7. Just out of interest. How can one person be responsible for so many injuries ? I would have thought that even a semi competent person could do at least a half decent job. Having staff around you, and players used to recoveries and looking after themselves, you would think if someone was woefully bad or out right dangerous they would be called out on it. Just always seems odd that we can pin it all into one man being "not very good"
  8. Think a 12,000 seater stadium will suit them fine. If they start getting big gates then providing it has the land around it to be able to upgrade stands as they go they would be fine.
  9. Will be interesting to see how quickly the OOC players sign new contracts with clubs. Will be a good indication as to how many were playing with their futures already agreed elsewhere.
  10. I wonder how it would go down if one or two players were just released. Would that galvanise the rest for the next few games, would they just think "why couldn't that be me, paid to stay home". Would it hurt their career as? Or do clubs not care about such things ?
  11. Just hope someone somewhere is looking at a plan to actually have a competitive team in place for next season. If we wait to long we will be left with the dregs in available signings, and those who can't / don't leave as no one else wants them.
  12. Are we that good a opportunity without the stadium and training ground. What will their money actually be purchasing. It would just be a name, leasing all our facilities and making a loss...
  13. We have to remember investment into Bristol Sport and BCFC are not necessarily the same thing. Steve has a huge multiillion pound project to get of the ground, and I imagine the investment will relate more to the new indoor arena, hotel, housing, and commercial work than BCFC.
  14. Surely now the Ipswich deal and MA moving over, Steve has come to get the new blood in through the doors and old out. He would have known that MA was part of the negotiations for this deal and you would imagine has a replacement already lined up. He needs to confirm NP and be here for a orderly transfer for all the employees. If that is not the case, the do we seriously have MA still recruiting for us... It would seem a large conflict of interest. I personally wouldn't want a outgoing employee negotiating contracts, or feelers out for players. It is just asking for prob
  15. So now we need a decent commercial CEO for Bristol Sport and DoF for BCFC and we will might be able to start moving forward.
  16. Did the piped fans remember to clap for 2 minutes as we don't do respectful silences
  17. Wouldn't be surprised, they really liked him there.
  18. Let Mark Ashton run Bristol Sport, and all it entails, but not the player / footballing side of it. He really should be commercial only, there is more than enough to do there, especially with all the projects coming up. Also, why exactly do we need a voice at the EFL ? What exactly is it we are saying / getting that other clubs don't ?
  19. I'm unsure how having 14 OOC players is a good thing in regards to our squad. If 14 people in my workplace were told they had no contracts at the end of the year "so prove your worth" then I'd be amazed if much above "bumbling along " was achieved. To suggest that it puts us in a good position due to so many clubs having transfer embargos. Possibly, but that is more luck than planned for, we could not know that would be the case at the start of year. If all 14 do go, that's a big loss of money, definitely not something you would expect to be part of a plan.
  20. Could be why so much is on hold. You would assume new owners would want to place their own manager, and backroom staff. Is it going to be more than BCFC and large investment into Bristol Sport
  21. Maybe we need to tell a couple of players to collect their stuff and not turn up for training. Stay at home, good luck for the future. See if that maybe makes at least a few people out in a little effort, as who wants to offer a contract to someone who the previous club would rather they stayed at home than play / train with the first team... It shows a big chara6 flaw and will impact their ability to get other offers.
  22. Find it crazy that a whole organisation, worth 100's of millions all geared to supporting one person for success, and they appoint someone not ready, but persuasive... It's actually pretty laughable
