  1. The squad is good enough for the playoffs. It's the coaching that's let us down. As far as the playing staff are concerned IMO I can easily see the following happening; Maenpaa gone. O' Leary as understudy. Hunt gone. Pereira signed on a permanent. Rowe gone. Williams gone. Benkovic sent back. Smith released. Szmodics sold. Watkins, Nagy, Massengo & Eliasson sold to make way for quality incomings. Diedhiou sold Afobe bought. A lot depends on the incoming head coach and his vision. A lot depends on Walsh & Morrell stepping up to the plate. Both c
  2. Oh come on, really??? There's a massive difference with the half time and full time scores being read out over the tannoy and the inevitable cheer that goes up when you're losing or have lost. I would say though that even that is becoming less of a cheer especially as we have very little in common apart from a name. It's a bit different to paying to watch your team but not acually watching your team because you're on your phone constantly checking our scores or listening to Radio Bristol willing us to lose to make your weekend perfect. Don't forget, this isn't biased Bristol Cit
  3. I'll make you an offer you can't refuse (In my best Marlon Brando)
  4. Rubbish story. Given the amount of unemployed managers available I would be extremely surprised if we even looked at anybody that's currently employed given the amount of compensation we'd need to pay.
  5. I think he would be a really good fit. A proven manager/coach at many levels with international experience. I believe he's in between jobs presently. I can't see the club wanting to pay compensation to anybody currently employed as its money wasted. To me it's a good fit all round.
  6. Best game: Man City away. To be leading 1:0 and with a bit better execution or belief could gone even further ahead. Dreamland. Worst game: Brentford h this season. To see how far we have fallen behind in terms of organisation, identity and fluidity was a real eye opener. Best player: Without a doubt Adam Webster and Lloyd Kelly. Both should go on to play for England one day. Turning Bobby Reid into a striker was a tactical master piece when some on here would even pay for the taxi fare out of the club. Worst player: Louis Diony, Stefan Marinovic & Gustav Engvall. Diony
  7. That says it all really about your fan's mentality. Whether we're winning 4:0, losing 5:0, playing badly, getting stuffed or playing teams off the park I am still concentrating on watching and supporting my team. The only time I would be concerned about any other team's results (& that would be the teams in the same division) would be towards the end of the season if we were fighting relegation or getting into the play offs. I certainly will not be thinking about a team in a different league at that time who's results have no bearing on my teams results whatsoever. All normal foo
  8. It's ironic that City win at Cardiff to end colin's reign and now Cardiff win at City to end LJ's reign! I think some people forget that there's a lot of decision making on player recruitment done by others and I know he has a say in it. I think he will attract offers from other clubs as I do think he, is no doubt, a very good coach. The higher up the pyramid the more demanding and baggage the players have and I think it's that inability to man manage certain players has ultimately cost him his job. I really liked him but his lack of experience at man managing higher calibre pla
  9. I really wanted him to succeed. I think he just ran out of ideas. It is so rare to have a person with such a strong connection and affinity with the club. It mirrors the time his Dad was in charge. I think we have improved and moved forward with him at the helm. The trouble is he couldn't eradicate those long winless runs and at this level you will simply be found out.
  10. As I've said before everywhere else in the club we are getting better Stadium Fan base Infrastructure Training ground Playing squad Everywhere has improved apart from the coaching staff. That has stayed still or actually stagnated it is so glaringly obvious. He has reached his level which is league 1 or lower championship at best and he reached that some time ago. When there is something riding on a match we just don't have that killer instinct. The writings been on the wall for some time. Even as long ago as a FA Cup tie with Liverpool as
  11. I think you'll find that it's pronounced NUAJ. In the English language the letters tell you it should be NAJEE but it is completely different in fact, NUAJ. You can apply the same rationale to bristol rovers football club. They don't mind where they pitch up and they're certainly not a football club. It's a Hungarian thing.
  12. I actually thought we played really well over the entire match, even with 10 men and with the attacking changes made late on. We made them look quite ordinary. It restored my faith somewhat. This is closer to the type of pressing game I believe Lee really wants to play. Unfortunately for Lee there will always be fans who will turn on him at the slightest & some of the criticism has been harsh and unwarranted but there is a pattern of these long winless runs and we will never get to the next level giving away so many points. I have been very supportive throughout his tenure but ha
  13. I would not be surprised at this team; Bentley (simply because Maenpaa's done nothing wrong and needs undermining) Vyner (after lauding him as a makeshift midfielder, plays him at right back. Later on the head coach switches him to an unaccustomed midfield role believing his own hype and to completely bamboozle the opposition who are fooled for all of 10 seconds before sending him to play further forward after 80 minutes to try and get the 4 goals needed to get a draw) Rowe ( because he needs to keep it tight and he didn't play last time. The coach will push him into midfield af
  14. Absolutely hilarious. I feel sorry for the guys making the video having to experience the half wits and dregs of society. What a bunch of needy weirdos they are. Constantly on their phones checking the score of their rivals, so not even bothered about the paint drying dross they're watching. It could be that their attention span is that of a goldfish or lemming or that they have a lobotinous medical condition. Hopefully we were doing well that day as I would hate for the guys making that video having to witness the nightmare of the witless few pulling each other off and foaming at th
  15. Funnily enough I think he's a coming across a bit like the documentary about Graham Taylor then the England manager with Phil Neal his yes man; GT: Gazza's fooked. PN: Yes boss, Gazza, he's fooked. GT: CARLTON, CARLTON can we not knock it long? Hit Les Hit Les! PN: Gazza's fooked boss. GT: Time for Nigel, what do you think? Nigel playing in behind PN: yes boss; Nigel, it's time for Nigel. GT: LINESMAN! PN: Gazza's fooked. GT: Linesman, thank you so much, you've just lost me my job You could picture Lee with Jamie Mac LJ: Benik's No
