  1. Looked up for it. Played really well!
  2. This dross makes the Wigan performance look good! We look clueless.
  3. I've seen the fixtures for this block of 10 and the next. Hopefully, win most of the home games and (maybe) get something at QPR? I'm an optimist but then I was hoping for a win at Bolton.
  4. People are concerned about our form since Christmas. Our run isn't particularly encouraging at the moment so I think it's fair to have a benchmark of when the concern escalates to something more. After 10 games, I'd hope we're on between 14 - 17 points. I think that would be a decent start!
  5. Our record since the win against MU on 20th December 2017: D, W, L, L, L, L, L , D, L, W, L, D, D, D, L, W, L, D, W, D, L, L, W, L, D, D, L and yesterday D Played 28, Won 5, Drawn 10, Lost 13 I back LJ (for now) because I support City however, this above record doesn’t make great reading and I don’t think it’s wrong based on it, to ask the question posed by the original OP. One thing I find interesting is that he seems to be well thought of, in wider football circles. Personally, I think the way he speaks and presents himself as a modern, football manager is excellent. In my (humble) opinion, he sometimes struggles when plan A doesn’t work or when opposition coaches change their formation or tactics. Yesterday against a 6’ 8” goalkeeper, why didn’t we, at some point, have our 6’ 7” striker? (Is Duric injured?) I am certainly looking forward to seeing our new players bed in . My wish is that he had more experience in his coaching staff!
  6. I think most people agree, ground looks amazing. Having seen attendances go consistently above 20,000 this season and, encouragingly sell out a couple of times, what potential and need is there for future expansion (maybe in the next 3-5 years?) More specifically: Although the obvious next phase, is the Atyeo likely to be developed any time soon, what with the ongoing houses behind it still occupied. What would a realistic capacity for it be? 7.5k minimum, preferably nearer 9k? Can a second tier be added to the South Stand? Was it built with expansion in mind? I read a while ago (can't recall where) that the Dolman had a limited lifespan and that it wasn't in the too distant future? Could that be redeveloped? I know the costs of any such developments (Sir Steve has already spent a lot of money on the recent redevelopments) might mean this won't happen, but is it ridiculous to dream that in the future, we might play at Ashton Gate, in front of a 30,000 crowd?
  7. To be truthful, I wasn't convinced about his suitability for the job in the first place. He hadn't really proved himself at Barnsley or Oldham. And I was saying this along time before Reading. Midway through a record 8 losses in a row, was where I had serious doubts. Now, I'm not kidding myself into thinking he won't be here for a while to come but, I've been to every home game and I just don't see a great tactical mind.
  8. He's a salesman not a manager. Talks a lot but doesn't really say anything! Very poorly managed after going 4-2 up. Why did he bring off Korey Smith?
