  1. This 100%. It's been the question to ask for the past 40 years. The answer has rarely been 'yes'.
  2. My observation would be that Lansdown repeatedly relies on 'he may learn quickly'. (see Tinnion, Millen, arguably LJ if what was expected was a top 6 finish and promotion). At any point in time there is an army of experienced football mangers out of work who don't need to learn on the job but have already proved themselves capable, or incapable. What should have happened is that the task ahead of the club in the coming seasons was identified and a manager recruited with a proven track record of delivery. Would have guaranteed nothing but would be better than hoping that one of the unprove
  3. I agree that some of the more interesting and better informed writing on City in the recent past has been posted on this forum... ...with lots of not so interesting and poorly informed stuff alongside it - of course. It's a football forum, people sound off. I feel sorry for Dean Holden. Looks out of his depth. The club's stated aim is a top 6 finish and promotion in the not too distant future. Not a job I'd give to someone with zero track record of achieving such goals at any level in football management. I posted the same thoughts when Millen got the job...seems to me like groundhog
  4. Great performance, great result. We had the obligatory 25 mins where we couldn't keep the ball but we started and finished with style and confidence. Really enjoyable afternoon.
  5. We are so wasteful in possession. Gifting it to them.
  6. Really enjoyable watch on a miserable January afternoon. Could do with a second (to cancel out the penalty they'll doubtless get) but that was an impressive first half performance.
  7. Cracking start to this match. Palmer making a difference.
  8. Great finish. Two cracking goals in this match. That goal was completely against the run of play mind!
  9. Commentator: 'Bristol City seem to have gone backwards in truth since the changes' ...not the finest of commentators but can't disagree with that.
  10. Pity...I was quite enjoying up to the last minute of the half!
  11. You missed an afternoon of frustration redeemed by a Fam shot that almost took the net off...which left a pleasant feeling.
  12. Agreed. For me talk of stepping up a level is premature. We need to thrive at this level first. I reckon Fam has what it takes to be a decent Championship squad player. Thinking back we've had plenty of players that helped make us competitive at a lower level that were never going to step up, but did a job - the likes of Darren Byfield, Kevin Betsy, Phil Jeavons, Steve Brooker.
  13. Agreed - especially as we don't seem to be signing strikers that are a great deal better!
