  1. No it was actually followed by a 1-1 draw home to Stoke, nil-nil at Newcastle, 1-0 defeat to Coventry in the League Cup then the 4-1 thumping of Sunderland.
  2. Had dealings with Gordon in the mid 1980s when he was Rovers secretary. What a smashing bloke and I have to say, due to his like and Keith Brookman, I don't harbour the anti-gas sentimentality other City supporters do. That isn't to denigrate those fans it's more a reflection on Mr Bennett and Mr Brookman. Two passionate fans of their club but also very nice and decent people. If you made their acquaintance, you couldn't then hate. RIP Gordon.
  3. Nogbad, you say that there don't seem to be any entries from female posters. This doesn't surprise me at all. Most of the women I have known have all shown a great talent for being very wise AFTER the event.
  4. Who would've thought when Leeds hit three past City at Ashton Gate in their opening league fixture of last season that they would also score three away from home at Anfield in their opening league fixture of this season. To top it all who would've thought that the attendance at Ashton Gate would be far larger than at Anfield. A year (and a month)is a long time in football.
  5. You are quite right regarding Billy Wedlock, however, one has to take into account that he was playing in the days before the development of 'The stopper' centre-half in the 1920s, Wedlock played at a time when the centre-half was effectively a central midfielder.
  6. Condolences to you Slarti, very sad. RIP Dave.
  7. I too, gain the impression that the way things operate at a coaching/management level at AG excludes lots of candidates as soon as the job of first team coach becomes available because it simply isn't the way they operate. They have achieved in managerial roles doing it pretty well their way but are then faced with with the prospect of having to achieve by doing it someone else's way. I can understand why we then don't appeal to the majority of managers and as Spudski says this is detrimental to our prospects and holds us back. I would not be at all surprised to see Lee Johnson become a b
  8. Brilliant Major, how many players do we sign thinking they're for our first team who end up playing years on loan for other clubs before making our first team if thry do at all. Maybe this is a revolutionary new step, signing potential managers to be our manager but then sending them out on loan to manage at lower division level. That way we can have about twenty managers and just recall the one who is showing the most promise at any particular moment to replace the current manager who then goes out on loan to regain confidence after some poor results.
  9. All makes sense now. I reckon Chris Hughton has accepted the role as manager/DoF. He has stipulated that he will only agree to the role if Dean Holden is promoted to First Team Coach. Furthermore, if City win or get an unexpected point against the odds Hughton does the interviews and accepts responsibility for it. But if City lose or drop two points when they were expected to take all three then Dean Holden does the post match interviews and accepts responsibility and has to mention how much they missed Hughton's wisdom and guidance during the week and during that particular match. They h
  10. I agree with you, things don't add up. They only make sense with the scenario that a manager from outside the club has been appointed and has agreed for Holden to be his assistant (his head coach). I tend to think that manager is Hughton, but it could possibly be a foreign manager. Odd that just before this announcement by a journalist (not an official club announcement) a lot of money went on Hughton at the bookies. Why would a coach be sacked and then Holden be thinking about the position he has been offered, a position he applied for? When have Bristol City ever offered the top job to any
  11. These are unprecedented times. It seems like every week we are learning new things about coronavirus. This week I have learned that if a football club owner catches it he can actually display few if any of the symptoms, except for the fact it turns him into a complete and utter nincompoop
  12. Trouble is Sheffield Wednesday have to play us twice next season so really it's minus 6.
  13. Maybe they know it's the best time to appoint Holden as the fans cannot protest by staying away from matches in these unprecedented times. Well, perhaps as a protest we should turn up for matches!!!!
