  1. So, after a prolonged period of non-communication, and following the club appointing a coaching team that few of us wanted - us ‘customers’ were largely ignored. Now though, as the clubs cash flow is poor due to the impact of the pandemic, it very much needs its ‘FANS’ help. According to JL, it will shortly appeal to all ST holders NOT to request refunds, basically due to reduced crowd numbers, to allow the club to keep the money toward future season tickets etc. As opposed to a refund, and in support of the clubs needs, I recently opted to take Robins TV recently but, I have to say
  2. Look on the bright side, due to COVID it’s highly unlikely we will be able to visit AG anytime soon, in the meantime let matters run their course - terrible run / under perform, we were right, if it goes well fair enough. What will be more interesting will be how many ST holders accept City TV options as an alternative this time around, I speak for six of us and can confirm we would prefer a total ST refund please! Feeling totally disillusioned right now but, no problem, I’m well used to it..!
  3. And you thought you mattered More seriously, and as a loyal fan of 30 years, most of which five of us have been ST holders, I just hate being lied to - progress, ambition, let's be honest, actions speak louder than words! As a final thought, what is the point of having a Billionaire owner who doesn't any longer want to invest in the club?
  4. Out of interest, if Holden is appointed, how many ST holders if available, would want their money back? Secondly, are we able to get our money back? I speak for six of us who most definitely would want to pull out and have a refund. We've ummed and arred about not renewing over the last three seasons but always have. Sad part is we've been ST holders for approaching 25 years hence we have pretty much always renewed out of loyalty being honest (SC seasons apart to be fair). I have to say though that we haven't looked forward to coming to the Gate fir football in a long time, sad refle
  5. 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..!
  6. 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
  7. I know people who have worked for and with him, no, just no..!

    Ambition

    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.
  9. 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..!
  10. 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
  11. The Premier league would suit LJ, he couldn't get promoted from there neither
  12. As important, players who trust LJ and therefore give absolutely everything for him..? Weimann.. Anybody else...?
  13. 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!
  14. 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
