  1. Of course we need someone to take the club to the next level, I just don’t see why comparing our aims to those of Bristol rugby is of any use. The recruitment team did an excellent job to get Lam in, but again, as you point out, the comparisons in calibre of manager just highlight how pointless comparing us to the rugby really is
  2. Again though, it’s much easier to pick a top coach for Bristol than it is for us as financially he’s got more of a chance. That being said, LJ is very much the safe choice for us, hopefully SL can push the boat out more with his next appointment
  3. He agreed to join whilst we were still in the premiership, January 2017 iirc. At that stage relegation looked very likely but we were still a premiership side at least for 5 more months. Actually took over when we were in the championship though, maybe I should have made that clear
  4. Again, there’s a major difference. Bristol were a premiership side when Lam joined, getting some of the highest crowds in Europe and littered with some talented players. In fact, only 15 years earlier they’d been in Europe, the footballing equaivalent is maybe Newcastle getting Benitez. So for Lam this was a project that we certainly aren’t for any football manager
  5. Right, I feel that this has been said way too many times on here but may as well say it again. There is a huge gulf financially between rugby and football in this country, Bristol are probably one of the best paying sides in the UK and yet, perhaps 4-5 players aside are spending league one wages on their squad, and I’d presume staff. In fact, in 2021 the rugby salary cap for the whole squad will be cut to £5 million a year, which equates to around £95k a week, less than many premier league footballers are on individually and a drop in the ocean compared to the championship.
  6. you going to blame that one on Johnson as well @Andy082005?
  7. Even you can’t blame that on Johnson surely...
  8. And that’s why you put afobe up front and not on the left. He looks very sharp and hopefully this is the beginning of a decent partnership with Wells
  9. Can we stop comparing ourselves to the rugby, premiership rugby is on a similar level money wise to league one. Any comparison, especially when regarding head coach/manager, is ridiculous
  10. Perhaps as it was soft, but I don’t think referees should have different rules for fouls depending on where they are on the pitch. That being said, we’d have probably missed it anyway...
  11. Issue is it was exactly the same as the foul given against wells 5 minutes earlier, got to be a bit of consistency
  12. After actually looking good we do that, typical...
  13. I’d much rather we were stuck in the championship than watching a side with the play acting of that Rotherham side a few years back, no matter where we were in the table
  14. Not trying to twist it at all, he may well have had successes but the fact he’s never managed at this level makes them pretty irrelevant. Lee Lashenko has won more than LJ, doesn’t make him a better manager though does it?
