  1. This, I'm sure clubs would sign him in Jan to boost their survival/promotion hopes, I'd think someone would be willing to take a risk with him as he's a decent championship defender when fit. Would be better to get something for him and put that money towards a replacement.
  2. Exactly this! Holden may have his own ideas and perhaps would have taken city in a different direction but he was there mostly to assist, coach and implement LJ's ideas into the team. He could make suggestions or reason what is/isn't a good idea but ultimately had to follow LJ'S instructions and decisions. Holden is free of those shackles now so it will be interesting what he does with this team.
  3. That's what I get for typing fast and not proof reading.
  4. The problem is if he chooses to go with a league 1 or 2 manager is, they will run into the same problem as LJ. That is man manage of championship players, some with big egos, is totally different to those from a lower league. We need someone who is use to, and knows how to deal with them. A lower league manager isn't going to command instant respect a Houghton, McCarthy or similar would. This for me is something that is vitally important in an appointment. We need someone to 'take the bull by the horns' with this squad and turn it into a genuine promotion chasing team and Houghton is t
  5. Interesting hearing the sky commentators saying he's doing an 'ok' job. Which is about spot on imo. It wasn't bad but wasn't good either.
  6. Shame how it's worked out, loved the club and you knew his heart was in it but it simply wasn't working out and you could see he was struggling. Right call by the club but good luck to LJ in his next role elsewhere.
  7. Now, if my memory serves me correct, there was a plan spoken of by the club a few seasons ago that throughtout the age groups, they would play in a similar way to the first team, firstly, to allow the young players an easy integration into the first team when they make the step up and secondly, to have a distinctive style of play, a 'Bristol City' way and this was to echo the likes of Swansea (before prem relegation), Southampton, Brentford and Sheffield United's successes as the way forward. Well, what happened? 2017/2018 season we looked like it was coming together, lots of ups a
  8. Needs to go now, had so much time and money. He seems to have amassed a collection of players with little to no idea how to turn them into a 'team'. He's taken us as far as he can, not because we have reached our ceiling as a club but rather we have progressed to a point where we've out grown his ability as a manager and he's holding us back. LJ simply isn't good enough (and still a few years away atleast imo) yet to be managing a team trying to challenge for promotion. We need 15 points to match last years 70 point/8th place finish, so need to average 2.14 points per game. Wo
  9. Hugely important to keep this run going, interestingly Leeds next three games are: Nottingham Forest Brentford Then Us! That second spot is going to be wide open for whoever can put a very good run together.
  10. "Pride goeth before the fall" unfortunately, I feel.
  11. Must say, considering we haven't had the chance of building support up from a forray into the top flight, that's a damn good effort from us. Bì7 eating a few who have come down and going toe to toe with those with much more recent success. Away followings will always suffer due to our location but I'd imagine we're in the top 5, if not the top 3, of the most travelled sides.
  12. I don't think our defence is a huge problem, our goals against shows how much losing our best defenders has cost us, it should improve once we are back to full strength. Having said that, in just 4 games or roughly 20% of the season to date, we've conceded 13 goals or nearly 50% of our conceded goals for the season so far! Leeds 3-1 Preston 3-3 Luton 3-0 WBA 4-1 That leaves 15 goals spread out over the other 16 games, that's pretty decent to be fair, we just need to cut out these high scoring defeats/losses.
  13. Been thinking this for a while, think he could flourish in a 4-3-3. He's good out on the wing but it does limit him what he can do. Having him sit a bit more tucked in, say in line with the edge of the 18 yard box, it would open up alot more areas for him to attack. He's also got a good shot on him, I'm positive he'd bang in a few more goals from that position.
  14. Percisely this, had we had Kalas, Nagy and Dasilva avaliable for the season up till now, I'm positive we'd have conceded a few less. Goals aren't so much a problem at the moment, we just need to get our injured back, match fit and firing.
