  1. Of course you can, if he is the best person to take control of the business side of Bristol City FC then so be it. The club is changing IMHO and we are now bringing in the best people we can get to do the jobs they are best suited too, football and business wise. They say the best teams are built from the back, we are now building from the very back and thats getting the best staff we can, I like what we are doing now for the first time in a long while..
  2. Well I hope so and so does the Lansdown's by appointing him. He has a proven track record as a CEO of sports clubs running the business side of things but not the sporting side. As a multi million pound company, Bristol City need a CEO to run the business side of the club but ill also need good football people running the football side of the club. The club is two things, a football club and a large business, you need the best people in the right positions to run both sides..
  3. Yeah you've missed a massive part Gould has been brought in to run the business side of the club, a non football role but essential in the running of a football club these days. Football clubs at our level are a multi million pound business and a top CEO is needed to run things like any other company. The mistake we did was to let Ashton control the football side of things too, Gould will run the company, not the football side of things..
  4. My gut feeling is this is a really good appointment, previous knowledge of the club has has forged a good career since he left with a lot of experience now. Signs are to me that we will get another top guy in with a roll overseeing recruitment and football maters.

    11 Gone

    Not unhappy to see any of that lot go, Interesting that it states with Weimann that contract negotiations are ongoing which would sugest thats its not a contract extention but reduced terms?
  6. Because if we don't act now with who we have in place at present then we are going to be miles behind on recruitment? I don't see the club has any other option than to use who we have until appropriate appointments are in place. Ashton has shafted the club, fans and the Lansdown's. It will take a bit of time to rebuild the club on and off the pitch and remove the sour taste from our mouth's he has left us with..
  7. Exactly, can you imagine if they where any good at their jobs? We would be livid to say the least, I'm glad they are all gone but what a stunt pulled by MA and I bet Steve is feeling a little violated by all this..
  8. Its a buyers market at the moment, would like to see him stay but I dont think we will say no to £4-5 million plus add ons..
  9. Baker - Gone Mariappa- Gone Rowe- Gone Hunt- Gone Watkins- Gone Walsh- Keep Simpson- Keep 1 year Gilmartin- Gone Lansbury- Gone Diedhiou- Gone Weimann- Keepn 1 year Paterson- Gone Adelakun - Gone
  10. Im excited, really looking forward to see who comes in with the staff off the pitch, recruitment and medical, thats more crucial than playing staff to begin with Im also looking forward to a clear out of players and while I don't expect a massive influx of players, hoping for 3/4 quality players to start the journey..
  11. When we sign a new player we get a video of them up on the roof.. We should do the same with players leaving, video of them being thrown off the roof..
  12. I can see the point @cidercity1987 is trying to make. Brighton owner Tony Bloom spent a lot of time and money getting his clubs infrastructure right, new stadium and then a new training facility.. He then turned to an experienced manager to help mould the club both on and off the pitch, hopefully we are building in the same way..
  13. Indeed, big difference between Steve Lansdown and Tony Bloom though, both care a lot for their clubs and are both very wealthy but Steve is going to approach things far more slowly financially than Bloom did..
