  1. He’s left Bournemouth once, didn’t like it and went back fairly quickly. So I’m not sure if he would be a good idea anyway!
  2. I disagree, literally any manager given the backing that he’s had, would have had no problem with establishing us in this league. The majority of managers would have spent more wisely, bought quality instead of quantity, decided on a style of football, a consistent formation, and possibly some entertainment! He had a one good three month period, the rest of the time it was par or below considering the players he had at his disposal. He told everyone to judge him after 3-4 transfer windows, he was given 8 or 9 and still complained of “lack of leaders” and players he couldn’t trust, this, a
  3. Totally, if you knew you were about to get the job, would you not tell all your family and friends to lump money on it.........I certainly would!
  4. They are reacting to whatever money is being put on who. Bookies aren’t actually interested in who they think will get the job, all they are interested in is how much money they can make.
  5. Given the players confidence. Hasn't slagged individuals off. Hasn't complained about lack of leaders after signing all the players himself. Hasn’t changed 3/4’s of the team and told players he can’t trust them. Basically, he’s just doing what a decent person would do to a squad of footballers, something the previous manager was always incapable of doing.
  6. Some of us saw it 4 years ago, he should never of been given the job in the first place. Like father like son, neither can handle players that have done more in the game than themselves.
  7. Something your hero struggled to do though
  8. Plus, made to feel good and given confidence by the manager. I wonder how many of the other players feel that way.... now. I have no doubt whatsoever that LJ’s constant blaming the players for everything totally effected a lot of them, Holden probably knows how to treat people properly, that makes a massive difference.
  9. He is a player that can link up the midfield with attack, also willing to get past the strikers. Not many like him about nowadays. Similar player to how Mark Gavin was.
  10. Sounds like another manager, who got sacked last Saturday.............
  11. I think it’s the fact that Villa fans came across as billy big bollocks, as they felt they were too big a club to play in the Championship. The rest of the Championship clubs weren’t worthy of playing against such giants!! Someone forgot to tell Villa fans that it’s 2020 now, not 1897!
  12. I seem to remember the Brighton chairman ( whom I presume hired Hughton for Brighton) trying to help us immensely over our plans for Ashton Vale. I’m sure he even came to Bristol to talk on our behalf at the time. I can remember an interview with him and he seemed to genuinely want to help us as a club. Which must mean that SL and him are good friends, so I would imagine SL can easily find out what he wants to know about Hughton by just picking up the phone.
  13. If it was a level playing field, he would never have got the job in the first place.
  14. Nogbad, unfortunately he ‘has’ been instrumental in me losing my lifelong passion for City, after 40 years I’ve stopped going over the last two. I just was not enjoying it anymore, the football was just total dross, and Johnson’s arrogance and failure to accept any blame for his own ineptness just compounded how I felt. I now watch County and Western League football, and immensely enjoy it. Hopefully a new manager can rekindle my passion and make me feel it’s worthwhile coming back to watch, but it’s going to be tough to get the bug back, when non league football and all that goes wi
  15. All referees have to take regular fitness tests, and pass them. Plus, the majority of the referee’s are 35 years old plus, so will never be as fit as the players.
