  1. It is impossible to tell how good he is. After all not long ago we bought the current England goalkeeper - that worked well didn't it?
  2. How many of our four will score ?!
  3. Four ex City forwards on the pitch now. Incredible.
  4. A proper old time footballer Thanks for the memories Rest in peace
  5. The 'Old Stand' at Ashton Gate was similar. You could see between the wooden planks all the accumulated rubbish lying underneath. Thank god we have learnt the lessons since this dreadful disaster
  6. Some of our signings and contracts offered baffle me

    Such a helpful and insightful contribution. I assume you are happy yo yoing between the 2nd and 3rd tier then No ambition, that's the problem with City and the city Goodnight, Irene

    So what are our ambitions then if not to be competing with the best? Same old Bristolian attitude of we'll settle for a comfortable life in Division 1

    Shows just how far we have to go. The gap between top Championship sides and top Prem is wider than the Atlantic. Still think a City like Bristol should be up there. Don't expect to see it in my lifetime. On the evidence of advancing slowly but surely under SL's policy expect to be playing in Europe around 2120 - if we are lucky!
  11. Two thoughts. SL said, we have a very valuable squad of players. Funny emphasis on money, i.e. Sell on value, rather than we have good quality on the pitch. Quite a lot about the badge. Really? Couldn't care less about the badge it is the team I am interested in. Odd emphasis in my opinion Plus, as said above, no mention, let alone thanks, to coaching staff
  12. To make progress at this level, means surely from one season to the next keeping your best players and recruiting or promoting better quality for those who have fallen short. The problem is that at one season's end we lose, or tend to, our best loan players and spend a sizeable proportion of our expenditure in either gambles, like Eisa or Engvall, or in ones for the future, who may or may not be the future, think Smith at Tranmere, highly lauded on signing and disappearing below the horizon. We need to reassess the balance within our current policy and improve our scouting. LJ will not hang around forever - whilst perhaps the majority of otib think he could be the new Alan Dicks and achieve promotion, I and some others doubt this. If he leaves the majority on here will be massively disappointed whilst others of us will fear the club's amateur approach to appointing new managers will land us up with a Coppell or a Pulis and not an Alan Dicks. In which case 100% of us will feel let down.
