  1. All part of the increasing sanitisation of football I guess. Something always goes missing when things are “improved”.
  2. If the current Wembley had existed since 1923 and then they recently knocked it down to build the old one, what would you say?
  3. Highlights of Frank Bruno’s fight with Mike Tyson was being shown on TV at the same time if memory serves.
  4. I’ve suggested on here before that if for each club, you compared some sort of standardised measure of their “achievement” with some sort of standardised measure of their “potential”, then Bristol City would probably have the lowest ratio of all league clubs i.e. we are the biggest underachievers relatively speaking. In effect this means that Bristol City fans are entitled to be the most pissed off in the country.
  5. Ashton is very corporate in his style of management, which doesn’t fit well with the running of a football club (at least the playing side of it). He has a tick box mentality and talks like a PowerPoint presentation on legs. He doesn’t seem to understand the human dynamics of building a high performing sports team or what it takes to lead or coach one. Hence his abysmal recruitment record. It’s grit, desire and leadership we need, not good humans. Thank goodness Steve stepped in to hire Pearson quickly before MA started another 6 weeks of ticking long lists and short lists. Hopefully NP c
  6. I think his interview style is fine while he is laying down his philosophy for the future. But when we go on a losing streak in the middle of next season it will start to grate a bit.
  7. Perhaps NP wants to use him to change the culture of “niceness” around the club. Or perhaps MA has switched to a bad human strategy for recruitment.
  8. The biggest factor in deciding whether to give him a second chance is whether he has unequivocally shown remorse. I don’t know whether he has or hasn’t but that is the question to be asked. Also, there has to be more to it than signing a 34 year old for 8 games at the end of a meaningless season. Is Nigel thinking of another role for him next season? I’m disappointed with the whole episode, just when the club seemed to be on the right track both on and off the pitch. Nothing wrong with second chances but we are a football club, not a criminal rehabilitation charity. It just doesn’t
  9. Apart from Alan Walsh, but RIP Frank.
  10. Can I attempt a consensus view: he did well to establish us as a top half championship club he was very committed to City and genuinely did his best his persona was a bit irritating he lost the plot eventually and had to go
  11. I wonder what the capacity was in those pre Health & Safety days
  12. Well it would be like a second coming
  13. For all we know you could be right! But seriously, it could have been the case that he wanted NP when LJ went.
