  1. The appointment of Pat Lamb is the one thing that gives me hope. SL learned his lesson with the previous manager and realised that if you want success you’ve got to have a top coach. City won’t get a football equivalent of Lamb as the finances of football and rugby are different, but could get a coach of lower Premier League standard. Never mock Clark’s pies or I’ll send the boys to pay you a visit.
  2. Michael Caine. Although his team put up a good performance in Escape to Victory, at the end of the match the entire team ran away, never to be seen again. You can’t run a football team like that. The player turnover during a full season would be horrendous
  3. Nay, Nay and thrice Nay As the figures shown were averages, a lot of CEOs must be earning less. I’d guess that some clubs pay more, so to get the average figure shown those at the lower end of the scale must be earning a lot less. I hate averages. Averages can be misleading when a distribution is heavily skewed at one end, with a small number of unrepresentative examples pulling the average in their direction.
  4. It’s better to yo-yo than to never have yo’d at all
  5. @Norn Iron - we’ll done for speaking about this. If you’re feeling a bit down, it takes courage to stick your head above the parapet. I can’t see the purpose of having the offensive negative emojis as they should only be used if a post was itself offensive, racist etc. If there was that sort of post it would be removed, therefore no need for the emoji. A better option might be an “I don’t agree” emoji / symbol for someone who disagrees with a comment but doesn’t want to / have time to give reasons
  6. I’m equally surprised that you’re your equally surprised that he was (possibly) surprised.
  7. There are always known knowns - things we know we know. There are also known unknowns - things we know we don’t know. Worst of all, there are unknown unknowns - things we don’t know we don’t know. All of these conditions exist simultaneously on the forum

    There are injuries and then there are Bristol City injuries
  9. I would have liked him as manager then, but that was then, and now is now. We need to go for someone with more top level experience.
  10. Not much management experience and what he has is poor
  11. Bookies usually make money so I expect they’re glad to take bets on Flynn. He had an underwhelming playing record and has had hardly any managerial experience.
  12. I would have liked Sam Allardyce a few years ago but he unofficially announced his retirement a couple of years ago. He was offered the Newcastle job in July 2019 but turned it down. It’s unlikely he would want to come to City if he’s happy in retirement
  13. I’m surprised Sam Allardyce hasn’t appeared on both lists
  14. Pity he might be back in the Championship with Bournemouth next season
  15. What I’d like is a proper interview process
