  1. If SL is going to make a significant shift away from the mediocre, unqualified, it has to be a Premiership quality top foreign coach with his own specialist coaching team. Such a Head coach and his chosen staff would have the ideas, expertise and player contacts to take us to where SL says he wants us to be. Will SL have the guts to surrender significant control and let go of his football team as he has with his rugby team????????? This is the biggee
  2. Never thought Sir Steve would do it, especially before the end of the season. I really do hope that we don't get the "we assembled an outstanding field of candidates" bollocks again Get a top foreign coach with a specialist coaching team. Come on Steve, LET GO and show some guts
  3. I don't blame LJ especially. I blame SL for hiring a succession of safe, unthreatening, mediocre managers throughout his time. We've had one manager in recent times, Steve Cotterill, (who gave us the most exciting season in recent times), who stood up to him and look what happened to him. He's presiding over the most under-achieving club in English football and he seems happy to let this continue. I would like him to show that he is prepared to let go, admit he knows little about football and appoint an experienced, successful high quality foreign coach who brings his own specialist
  4. We've got a Premiership defender (whose arse must be full of splinters) sitting on the bench watching our ding-bats. I daresay a slight grin might play on his lips from time to time. On the pitch we've got a mixture of Kalas, Williams and Baker, who cannot deal with a set-piece, cannot head a cross away or deal with a ball coming across the six-yard box. Why did we loan Filip Benkovic, an international for Croatia (they should know a good player) if there was never the intention to give him a run when our defenders cock it up regularly. For the same reason, given that we have nobody
  5. Yes mate. But will we continue with glue/glue/glue mediocrity. We deserve better.
  6. Absolutely withering presentation. We are cursed with him and my gut-wrenching torture will continue until I die unless he goes before. Must have a lie-down and a Cydrax.
  7. Sorry to say this mate but all too frequently on here I find that people don't thoroughly read what is written. I didn't start by comparing Bristol to Liverpool as footballing centres, at least obviously not in present times. However we have enormous potential and it has to be said that both Liverpool and Manchester City have spent substantial periods out of the top flight. My main point was Liverpool and other top Premiership have achieved what they have "by hiring the best, specialist team of foreign coaches who have proven their worth in the top flight of other countries". e
  8. Interesting that no-one so far has followed the most important element of the thread. Liverpool ( and all the other top teams in the Premiership - no,no,no,no don't say we're not a Premiership Club so it doesn't apply) have spent proper money on appointing a team of top foreign coaches. Whereas we have the son of Gary Johnson Comments please ............................................................
  9. Bristol City under Lansdown has become the home of nepotism par excellance. it's the safe, unchallenging West country way? Don't appoint anyone who challenges your status quo. Result glue-glue mediocrity. I say again. Lansdown has definitely not used this as a maxim in his business dealings. Otherwise he would not be a millionaire. Why inflict it on our football Club.
  10. Fair play to you mate. I was with you until the dreaded "Never have had, never will have" with which you condemn us to be 3rd rate. Bristol and Liverpool are of similiar size and with similiar dodgy history, pointed up in the current hot issue. They have 2 premiership teams. We have 2 fairly crapulous Clubs. Surely you can believe that we can achieve one Premiership member. All depends on having the will to achieve it. Being serious instead of playing at it. Makes I wee.
