    Clear out

    The bowls picture is reference to Harry Dolman who had an indoor bowls rink built under the Dolman stand in the 70's for his personal use. So City's chairman then even had their own agenda for the ground. Steve Lansdown's agenda is for that stadium to be bringing in income 24/7 and the rugby is here to stay as well as the proposed Basketball arena. Let us be proud of this stadium, its still known as the home of Bristol City and will be for as long as it's there.
  2. Only question that nobody has raised is will we pay the right salary for a good manager. Our track record of managers over the last ten years seems to be get a manager on the cheap as a major factor in hiring one !!!!
  3. Hargreaves , Lansdown shares down 8% as co founder offloads shares as reported on Sky news. Steve getting money ready for a big Manager signing on a big salary. :laugh:.

    OK So Who?

    Go back a couple of years and SL was praising Eddie Howe and how he managed Bournemouth on a limited budget and kept them in the Premier League, it was the model that he wanted to follow.

    Sack Him.

    I think there are 10 million reasons why he became our manager and will remain our manager for the foreseeable future.
  6. Great player, always thought he had a big influence on Gerry Gow's early career and how he played from then on. Gritty determined and one of Alan Dick's best buys. Was a major influence in saving City from relegation in the late 60's. RIP Bobby.
  7. Watching Semenyo last night reminds of Junior Bent who had quick feet , real pace but couldn't hit a barn door from 20 paces. Everyone said that junior who was smaller would have been a premiership player if he could shoot. Both seem to snatch at their shots but hopefully with age on Semenyo's side he has the ability to get better and become a top striker.
  8. Leave the kid alone. Ask yourself have we got a 19 year old anywhere nearly as good as him the answer is no . At that age young players seem to have periods of performing good and bad but overall this kid is a talent for the future and needs looking after. He is too good to be loaned out and being in and around the first team will benefit his footballing education.
  9. Being both a Bristol City and Bristol Rugby supporter for 40 years tonight shows where Lansdown priorities are and that is developing Bristol Rugby in a top class rugby team domestically and in Europe. It’s a cheaper option. Look at the appointment manager wise when Lam was appointed, a manager already successful in Ireland and Europe to the appointment of Holden for City. Top stars in the Fijian, Sinclair and Pitiau being signed on top salaries . Has he used the same criteria for BCFC no it would cost to much money. Instead he hopes for a cheaper option to gradually bring success. You can’t
  10. It makes you wonder what the management really want as this is now a profitable club with a number of potential future premiership players all ready to be sold when a top premier team come with their cheque book, a ground that cost around approx £45 million and a manager rated as a top coach in this league.So maybe it time to get use to being a championship team finishing between 7th and 12th. As is said by Ashton and Johnson we are not in the same league financially as the top sides in this league. To sum it up Steve Lansdown wants profit first and footballing success is secondary!!!!
  11. Ernie Hunt's free kick in the 70's which was a repeat of the one he did on Match of the Day for Coventry.
