  1. We are delighted to confirm Omar Mouneimne as the club’s new defence coach with immediate effect. Another world class addition to the coaching team Let's hope City don't now take the cheap option..!
  2. All City want is a Coach and not a Manager - as an example, why would a decent, experienced, proven candidate want to rely on the likes of MA to make transfer decisions? Through SL's direct instruction, sadly but understandably, City have to be run through continually selling the family silver. Without the financial backing required to hold on to your best players, an up and coming 'Coach' making the step up would happily accept this, as LJ did, but even he got fed up with it after reportedly disagreeing with the Brownhill sale - but he had no say! I sincerely hope we could still lan
  3. I know people who have worked for and with him, no, just no..!

    So, we are about to find out, aren't we...! Will City want a Coach or Manager who is content to continually sell the family silver to balance the books, and therefore spend the immediate future in the Championship or, will City finally emerge from the shadow of the Bears? Steve has said he wants Premiership footballl, and at aged 68 shortly, has time on his side but there's a huge but... Our club for me has been divided for some time now and you can include the advent of Bristol Sport into that mix, our Identity has become diluted and we appear to have chosen cheap options.
  5. Horrible thing to admit but I'm beyond caring - as our play off ambitions are over, in one sense hoping we get a few thrashings, means to an end sadly..!
  6. So we played 433 yesterday because you watched Liverpool and it works well do them..? How many tens, or hundreds of thousands are you paid to make such critical decisions? Oh, and as an old school coach, players shouldn't have pink on their boots, of course making them wear black boots will make all the difference The pond is stagnant now sorry, you've done well to this point but, please leave with dignity.. We need to follow the Bears I'm afraid and appoint a proven Manager, not sure why we should continue to be in their shadow. Yours, one very disillusioned ST hold
  7. The Premier league would suit LJ, he couldn't get promoted from there neither
  8. As important, players who trust LJ and therefore give absolutely everything for him..? Weimann.. Anybody else...?
  9. So let's think about this - Warnock has achieved 8 promotions as a Manager to LJ's none - just wish we had made this decision, you'd never leave a game not having witnessed his team providing maximum effort and passion, imagine how refreshing that would be!
  10. In an attempt to remain impartial, I've delved into some facts to see if we are actually making the progress some feel we are, interesting. Over the last 10 games, our form sees us with a minus 6 goal difference and with only three wins, puts us 20th out of 24 teams. Over the last 6 games, we have a minus 7 goal difference with no wins, puts us 23rd out of 24 teams. Over the season, we have scored an average of 1.37 goals per game but conceded 1.47, we score every 66 minutes. Possession wise, we have averaged 38% per game (includes home and away). We average a shade ov
  11. Look on the bright side, we set the benchmark at the weekend
  12. Terrible thing to admit but we have three ST's and we've missed more home games than we've attended this season. I feel for LJ in one sense as he has no option but to sell our best players to help balance the books, but despite this, we haven't had a bad season based on our league position. That said I find the football at home far too defensive and boring, and his tactics baffle us constantly, to me the best form of defence is attack and it's only when we go at a team teams that we are effective and the crowd comes to life. I expect this though as having followed City for over
  13. For me, a fair league position right now would be mid-table at best, we have some good individual players but in reality aren't a great side overall. In the same way the Premier league is three 'mini leagues', given our resources and lack of parachute payments, we are a middle tire side and therefore over performing. I'm no fan of LJ as I don't believe he has the ability or knowledge tacticly to take us any further. I do however feel for him though given every time we have a decent player, they get sold on. i sincerely hope I am wrong and that LJ takes us up (albeit we'll pretty much

    Firstly, I want to say thanks to LJ for establishing us in the Championship. I do however feel the following stats support the need for change. We have won 10 out of 26 starts this season The form table covering the last six games sees us in 22nd position in the table, in the relegation zone We have a negative goal difference when assessing the season as a whole We have won just 5 out of the 13 home games this season, hardly a fortress and being honest in never has been under LJ LJ has never managed a team to promotion. If you throw in the apparent disarray and f
  15. Before you jump on me, this for me is realism and not intended as negativity. I'm lucky in that I was also able to enjoy the old game in the 70's and 80's when football was football. Perhaps with the exception of the Huddersfield game, I cannot remember when I last left the Gate feeling good about the game or at all motivated. As a ST of a few decades, I have to admit I've missed four or five home games this season, for whatever reason, I'm not feeling it at the moment and probably haven't fir a couple of seasons - I renewed our two tickets only out of loyalty being honest. That said
