  1. Agree with others. He came across exceptionally well and kept his analysis of how his team will play, really simple, uncomplicated and strayed away from DNA, identity and more. Refreshing, so good luck to him.
  2. I think if SL is looking to build on what LJ has done and bearing in mind LJ is a friend, then for me, I think Phil Neville will be a strong candidate to match what SL wants to continue
  3. 3 years left on a new contract is going to see him fine, financially. As for being distraught at his sacking, I imagine he could be. He clearly loved being at Bristol City, so to not have the choice to stay is likely very difficult. Who on here or anywhere wants to leave a place that they are happy in? No one. He'll get a job this summer and I reckon it will be a top Championship club or lower Premiership club. However, maybe he'd have preferred to stay at CIty.
  4. His contract has been mentioned a few times in this thread. How much time was left on his contract? Also, the players are always responsible too. One man doesn't control everything. You can take a horse to water....... No one is professional all of the time including us on here who go to work. we expect so much of players, but then again they are so well paid, so adored, so looked after that they shouldn't not put in 100% with the result of the Manager being sacked.
  5. SG is unproven and will be expensive as will those he might want to bring in. Let's back something more certain for one year.....Warnock. He would cost a lot less, spend a lot less and would be much less of a gamble. He doesn't like managing in the Premier League so a parting of the waves thereafter would be mutually acceptable.
  6. We don't need Neil Warnock for a lifetime, we need him/the likes of him for a promotion. Then SL can bring in ANO for whatever the philosophy is. Any philosophy to-date has not resulted in Premier League football and that is the stated ambition. So do we continue to bring in a new manager, new philosophy, revolving players, more capital spend OR DO WE bring in a manager to manage!!!!!!!!!!! CIty have good players, but they do not seem to be executing on their ability. Someone who can manage people/players to a successful outcome is what will take us up. That over a season, not
  7. One season, one target..... promotion. LJ divided fans. Who cares. Everyone wants the same thing and NW is totally proven, more than any other candidate.
  8. Whether people like him or not, whether Steve Lansdown does or not, Warnock is the nearest thing to a guarantee of promotion. He admires Lansdown from what he says, so give him the job. One thing is for sure. City will be robust, tough to break down and will fight for each other under his management. Ex players always have good things to say about Warnock. City need him and he'd love the job.
  9. But he wants premiership football and he's not getting it. Warnock has wanted the job before, doesn't appear to be a Johnson family fan, admires Steve Lansdown, is totally proven and would be hugely motivated for all of those reasons I reckon he's get us to the PL in one season.
  10. I reckon Warnock would definitely choose city
  11. Where's the calls for Neil Warnock? One season 20/21 to get us up. His final hurrah. He'd bite Steve Lansdown hand off.
  12. With the training ground likely being avoided, will players come back less fit for when the season resumes and what measures will the club put in place with players for maintaining fitness away from the ground? I reckon they'll be having a lot of Zoom/Skype meetings, don't you!
  13. Neil Warnock should have been City Manager years ago when Gary Johnson was ousted. Why not bring in Warnock, have LJ stay, but defer to Warnock and learn along the way. Warnock leaves at the end of the season. LJ takes learnings (hopefully) into the Premier League. I don't think Warnock and LJ get on, do they, so a very difficult situation. Also, possibly confusing and the divided loyalties in the dressing room post Warnock. It could be a case of we play this way to get up and Warnock knows how to do that and then we revert to the club model when (hopefully) promoted. Stupid
  14. Today, City played neat passing football, pretty much side to side and tried to be too intricate when at the 18 yard box with barely any shooting effort in that area. Webster, Da Silva and Hunt couldn't deliver a ball all day and poor old Famara gets no service whatsoever, simply acting as an old style centre forward with balls to his head and his back to goal. It is a total waste playing him this way; how is he supposed to score. There was no force and intensity with City and to be fair, Reading poor though they were, could have had a couple of goals in the first half. City wi
  15. Where is the best place to watch the game, live online this afternoon?

    He was given nothing, supplied nothing, a few long balls in the air with no close support, even if he did win the header. I think the problem was supply and proximity of players to him or lack thereof. He's a goal scorer, but he needs help.
  17. Ephron Mason-Clark, just watched him on MOTD. What a prospect he is. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ephron_Mason-Clark
  18. He did very well, but ultimately he was a lone striker with his back to goal for the whole of the game. Strikers don't score with their backs to goal. You're right that he was fighting for scraps in nearly every single back to goal, head challenge with no one close enough to pick anything up. Huddersfield are very poor and I Saw nor reason to play a lone striker against such an ineffective team. If Famara is facing goal he's going to score, if he is a lone striker with his back to goal, he'll expend a lot of physical energy, but ultimately not be able to do what he is paid to do.
  19. The football under LJ is terrible many of you say. The football under Neil Warnock is terrible so many say. Who would you want in charge next season? Recruit success or buy for the potential of the future? Removing managers is very costly. Their backroom staff, the pay-off's, new manager, new backroom team, players out and a new lot in. When will a Chairman start clearing out many team players and leave the manger in situ, IF they believe the manager is right for the club!!! So much money gets wasted in football clubs in rotation of players to suit a new manager. Look at
  20. Is he failing? What is the remit Steve Lansdown has given him? What is the timeframe on that remit? How is he performing against the goals and timeline set? A couple of wins and City are around the play-offs. It is only the 25th November. Look at some of the heavyweight's in the division that City are up against. What is the realistic expectation to 'compete' against the remit set by Steve Lansdown, the funds available and the appeal of Bristol vis-à-vis other clubs and cities? I wouldn't say he is failing at all. He (Bristol City) may not be meeting the hopes and
  21. I wonder how many people are as self-analytical and critical of themselves at work as they are of the football manager that manages their team?! Hypocrisy everywhere.
  22. He won't go anywhere, not even sure he should. However, football is a funny old game so you never know. IF he does. then there's only one man to bring that £100 million dream to Ashton Gate and I bet he will only take one more job. If/when Cardiff come down, Warnock in charge purely to get us promoted, big financial bonus for his pension for doing so. Give him everything he needs to do it in a season. Nothing else matters if the goal is the premiership. Tried, tested, works. You don't have to like him (I do). You just have to appreciate tat he can likely deliver your goal and
