  1. Sorry for your loss and trauma, it’s a loss the rest of us can only imagine. I appreciate you understood the intentions, but the two main reasons I brought it up were to hopefully remind some of the more abusive fans that there’s a real person with guts, determination and emotions they’re attacking, and also as @Port Said Red mentions below, because I actually think it demonstrated a lot about his character. Additionally, he did the original interview - it isn’t just an outsider’s report - so was happy for his private grief to become more public.
  2. It hasn’t been “brought into the media” by anyone other than me, as I thought it would be good for people to read for the reasons outlined in previous replies.
  3. Pretty pertinent part of our new manager’s life I’d say? A few were asking on social media what the references in interviews were to what he’d been through. And I thought it might help people realise there’s a real person at the centre of all the arguments and comments
  4. Definitely. I remembered this and tweeted him then. Must have been incredibly hard for him to relive it all Exactly why I found it
  5. Well worth a read for everyone on Dean Holden and his family’s tragic past. Hope the Mods don’t just shove this in on the merged thread as it’ll get lost and deserves a wider audience than that https://www.thenational.ae/sport/harsh-realities-for-footballer-dean-holden-1.439718
  6. @Shtanleythere’s your @Davefevsepisode
  7. I did that a while ago. Got a few followers but couldn’t be arsed in the end to keep it up
  8. Thank you for all the kind comments re the interview, guys. It really struck me how honest he was happy to be, nothing avoided and admitted his own failings as readily as anyone else’s - no excuses given
  9. The bookies simply follow the money in a market like this (with no statistics or evidence to set prices) and right now most punters money will have been placed on Gerrard & Hughton - they aren’t suddenly going to smash him up to 12/1 because the Sunday Express report he’s said no. They’ll move prices once money starts coming into someone else
  10. “How can LJ boss/teach international players when he's never played above Championship level himself”. There literally hundreds and hundreds of examples of this happening, and hundreds of examples of big names failing as managers. Don’t buy the hype
  11. I spoke to former City striker Tony Thorpe to find out more about his time with us and his career. He spoke about the various managers he played under, including Tony Pulis and Danny Wilson, as well as extensively about the players he played with and why they didn't quite make it back to the Championship. Shares/thoughts etc welcome as always - thank you Link here: http://theexiledrobin.org/2020/07/tonythorpe-exclusive/
  12. ‪NEW: An exclusive interview with City hero Aden Flint. City’s too scorer of the 2010s and arguably our player of the 2010’s? His thoughts on Cotterill, LJ, the Swindon fans who abuse him, his favourite moments from his time at Bristol City & how an injury helped redefine his career‬. PS he still loves Bristol! https://theexiledrobin.org/2020/04/adenflint-exclusive/
  13. I’ve teamed up with @caringinbristol to arrange a football ‘kit’ collection for Bristol’s homeless #BristolCity. Please bring any old hats, scarves, gloves, jackets along ON SATURDAY VS HUDDERSFIELD & drop off at the back of the Lansdown Stand between 1pm-2:45pm Full details below - please share on any other forums/pages you’re a part of. Thank you!
