  1. I think you and @BigToneare missing my point. I'm having a discussion about MA and fake news and suddenly the answer out of nowhere is about supporting a family - at no point was this subject ever ever mentioned and I found it churlish to suddenly say " Well- all I care about is etc etc" and totally deflect from my entirely reasonable assertion that if you state something as fact that cannot be proven or any has substance that you should hold your hands up and admit it. The poster deflected his position by talking about his family. It was just very silly and I met silly with silly.
  2. So - I call out what I consider as some fake MA news. I ask for confirmation and I don't get it. What I do get is stuff about importance of family etc. WTF is that to do with just asking an anonymous poster ( we pretty much all are) being asked to back up wild claims? If someone posts something as fact that they can't then back up then why is anything else they say fact? And that's what I've taught my 15 children.
  3. agreed - what the hell was that to do with a simple question?
  4. So the MA cohorts you quoted and was just utter bull crap. Yep- best leave me to it- love the bit about providing for your family though- if indeed you do!
  5. I'm not sure how many Owners are. What I would say is that he's now been crucial to City for 25 years and perhaps is not exactly new to the game. Since 2013, I'm not unhappy with our progress as a club and find it somewhat odd that so many believe that MA is this Machiavellian character that pulls the strings to promote his own career path and security whilst Steve and Maggie naively sit back and don't notice. Steve is a details man and a control freak. No one ever becomes a billionaire by accident.... apart from Jon.
  6. Not into a row. Just facts which seem to be replaced by wild speculation or agenda. You made a claim and I'm genuinely interested in knowing who the cohorts that MA has appointed and in what position-I follow every aspect of this club and don't know the answer. I also follow OTIB and am used to utter lies, speculation posted as fact, conspiracy theories and pure fantasy. If you can't answer my simple question then it's just a case of OTIB late night bullshit and doesn't read too well for you. Sorry if this appears patronising but I just love facts .
  7. No need to hope! Out of interest- could you specifically let me know which Oxford cohorts are surrounding Mark Ashton and what position of influence do they have?
  8. I think you'll find that MA's ego is irrelevant in appointing a new Manager- why do so many people feel that self made Billionaire SL is such a puppet of Lee Johnson ( oops- hang on) and now Mark Ashton's bitch? Get real- SL is not going to carry passengers, and is not a fickin football tourist and will appoint whoever he thinks will give us a real chance of the Prem. He's not spent a few million on Bristol Sport he's spent over a £100 million and is not in the mood to save a few hundred thousand appointing a relative novice this time around unless there's a very good reason. The 'cheap
  9. FFS- it's about the betting odds and nothing more- he could win every game remaining and still has no chance. None whatsoever because despite opinions to the contrary- SL and his employee, Mark Ashton have somewhat different plans which involve a slightly better solution. You wouldn't set up an amazing ski jump and get Eddie the Eagle as your main man just cos he didn't fall over.
  10. Anyone who is surprised to suddenly discover that Lee Johnson loved this club, loved the fans and gave his all whatever the results has been in mental lock down for several years. And the thickies who constantly said that Steve Lansdown had given him a job for life,etc are perhaps keeping quiet now. Well done Lee- dignified to the last. The Johnson family have contributed hugely to our club. Now... "We go again".
  11. Well- I actually feel the last two appointments have been great overall. SC- the double season finally getting us into the Champ- Lee keeping us there and consolidating our position whilst taking us forward on a number of levels.. until recently. Both were great appointments, imo, but both had to go when they did. I'm relatively optimistic that we'll get our man to take us to the next level irrespective of his Championship credentials.
  12. The OP is ' who would accept the City job' Well- just about anyone who's an unemployed Manager ( within the bounds of realism) and any Manager at a smaller club, broke club, badly run club, club going nowhere. It's an unbelievable opportunity. Being appointed the Manager of BCFC is one of the best and safest jobs in the EFL- two Managers since 2013. Fab stadium, infrastructure, training facilities, youth policy and an owner who speaks English as a first language and is hugely respected by true City fans ( you know- the one's who actually support the club by attending matches etc
