  1. Given the candidates that have been mentioned CH would be my first choice. From what I know about him he seems to have the persona and experience that would fit with BCFC.
  2. According to the Guardian it’s gonna be Big Sam.......,,,
  3. Mods, sorry can you merge this please. So thats another thank you!
  4. I do not wish to wallow, make unkind comments or score points. I just want to say a couple of thank yous. Firstly, to LJ for all of his hard work and efforts while Head Coach. Particular thanks to the Board for taking a difficult decision. As a City supporter of 60+ years, I have experienced many, many, emotions and moments of joy and sadness. My overriding feeling, following today’s decision, is one of immense relief. I have never had a boil lanced but I suspect the sense of relief might be similar. Whoever, succeeds LJ will inherit a superb situation....which includes a
  5. AW is a liability, he works hard in terms of running around but 99% of the time nothing comes from it. His back pass almost cost us and his clumsy foul v Forest certainly did cost us.
  6. Trade mark first half from us....with limited creativity, no clear chances, too much sloppiness, lots of side to side and backward passing. It’s like watching dead men walking. Fear it is only a matter of time before Cardiff score. Probably from a Tomlin free kick in the final 15 minutes. Was remarkable that LJ spent the drinks break arguing with the ref (following Smith’s booking) rather than speaking to the players! Have an increasingly uncomfortable feeling that we won’t win again this season.
  7. Northampton one up after 11 minutes
  8. There have been thousands of posts regarding our manager and who might replace him. I don’t wish to replicate anything that’s been said but would like to offer a perspective for others to challenge or even to agree with. Everyone wants Bristol City to be successful. Success means winning football matches and ultimately winning promotion and trophies. I hope that we can at least all agree on that. In addition I suggest that most fans would like to see us not only winning football matches but playing entertaining and attractive football. Arguably, other ‘stakeholders’ (especially those
  9. The Sky stats / commentators have easily highlighted our failings. For once will LJ acknowledge the same in his post match interview? I was impressed by Scott Parker, last night, who said their defeat against Leeds highlighted Fulham’s deficiencies. Oh and the answer to my own question...of course not.
  10. If we fail to win a game between now and the end of the season, will LJ: 1) Resign 2) Be sacked 3) Remain
  11. Basic football stuff. We have no options or ideas when we have a throw in. Therefore 9 times out of 10 we concede the ball from our throw ins!
  12. Palmer won’t feature very often IMO as he is exactly the kind of player that LJ can’t trust....he is a creative, flair player who can unlock defences and ping a pinpoint pass however, he is also likely to give the ball away, get caught out of position and look casual. LJ prefers players who are more robotic, disciplined and therefore predictable and can be relied upon. The problem with that is it leads to drab and far too often ineffective, boring football.
  13. In my opinion.... We certainly haven’t played exciting or attractive football all season. Indeed it has more often been drab, pedestrian and boring.Vanilla pretty much describes things. Then there aren’t too many players who play with real passion or commitment. Our style is predictable, risk adverse and generally ineffective. Finally we top this off with a manager who is obsessed by fine margins and is relatively comfortably secure in his job. When you put these components together it is no surprise that watching BCFC is not entertaining or easy on the eye, in fact this se
