  1. At least football is no longer a game of two halves. It’s now a game of four quarters.
  2. Whomever we appoint the key to a successful team and obtaining promotion is not conceding goals. It may not be the most attractive but all successful teams are based on a solid well organised defence. To put it bluntly if you don’t concede any goals you only need to score ONE goal every two games to get four points. Ultimately I suppose it depends on whether we want to get to the Premier League or play “open” football drawing 2-2 or losing 3-2 every week.
  3. He seems like a nice bloke and no one can doubt his passion for the club. However throughout his managerial career at Barnsley and Bristol city he has not actually acheived anything in terms of winning promotions or trophies. Whilst on a personal level I hope he gets another job soon his CV is not that impressive. I don’t doubt that he is a good technical coach but I don’t know if he has the motivational skills to get the best out of his players or make them run through a brick wall for him. Most top coaches have this attribute.
  4. In my 55 years of supporting city I have, up until the time LJ took over, always known our preferred starting 11. I would turn up on a Saturday and watch the same team albeit with one or two alterations due to injury, loss of form etc. Under LJ I haven’t got a clue what our preferred first team is and neither I suspect does he. Similarly, I have said in the past that all successful teams are built around a solid defence. You do not win anything by conceding two goals a game. A successful manager will have a preferred style of play and will drill this into the team so that each player k
  5. I think after 4 1/2 years LJ should now be replaced. However much as I enjoyed our time under Cotts I think that boat has now sailed and it’s too late to go back. I would prefer either an experienced successful manager with a proven track record or perhaps a highly regarded number two at a premier league or foreign club who is now looking to move up.
  6. I think LJ has had more than a fair Opportunity but 4 1/2 years later we are back where we started.
  7. Out of likes but this post sums up the situation perfectly.
  8. As someone who has supported City since 1960s and already purchased my season ticket for next year the most depressing thing for me is that we will have another season of the same rubbish next year under LJ. Meanwhile he will bask in the glory of being one of the longest serving managers in the football league whilst more ambitious clubs will have appointed successful managers and will have progressed. Meanwhile LJ will be allowed to sign quality players without a clue as to his style of play or how to play them but he will be out there measuring the length of the grass. FFS.
  9. At least we haven’t spent the last three months getting depressed on a Saturday afternoon. All good things come to an end.
  10. Better give them the title or we will never hear the end of it. If we don’t we end up with 35 public enquires over the next 20 years until they get the result they want. Meanwhile Heysel is quietly forgotten.
  11. Yes. Renewed it Tuesday. Having said that haven’t been down much this season. Just because I’ve wasted my money it doesn’t mean I have to waste my time as well.
  12. I’ve supported city for 55 years. In that time we have won nothing apart from league one under Cotts and the Johnstons Paint Trophy. Yet Bristol is one of the biggest cities in England. I genuinely get offended when people like you say City supporters should be patient and not expect instant success.
  13. Have to have success instantly? We haven’t been in the top division for over 40 (FORTY) years and have never won a major trophy.
  14. That promotion season when we won the double was the last time I actually enjoyed watching the football at Ashton gate.
