    Fair question. Might it have something to do with Bristol Sport - eg through BS we have the scale to do it ourselves?
  2. Pack’s first touch to make himself the space to shoot then was awesome.

    MoTD PL show - Sean Dyche

    I actually hope he doesn’t... next. Always used to be that being England manager would be your last job; the culmination of your learning. I think a lot of coaches have been given the job far too early But of course I do hope he gets a shot at managing England at some point in the future

    Slowly but surely building a bigger Bristol City?

    I think his legacy has amounted to quite a lot.but I agree they stuffed up with Mo yes then hiddink, completely different styles Anyway... Are you arguing that 15-20 years of success wouldn’t be good enough if we couldn’t guarantee it would continue? I’m not sure I fully understand your post my friend.

    Successful as Mou has been at Utd, I think I’d prefer the Ferguson approach - slow, steady, sustainable. And when success comes, it comes with a thunder :)

    In that case you underestimate the pull of the Premiership.

    Excellently put. Very important to the current plans at the club, and why the board will continue to look beyond relatively short term form.

    SL Standing Ovation Yesterday

    I know you weren’t asking me, but I thought I might have a go i look at it differently. I don’t think he’s under no pressure, or has huge job security. (As an aside, look at Wenger - going absolutely nowhere, but still under intense pressure.) Rather, I think that he is perhaps one of the managers who is most aligned with his chairman wrt the plan they are trying to execute. As this plan is long-term in nature, it means the chairman is focused on general progression of the club, and overlooks swings in short term form. Other chairmen might be more inclined to rapidly hire and fire I think SL would get rid if he thought we were failing in executing the plan. But for now things are generally progressing, so LJ remains in a good spot. Just my view on the dynamic.
  9. Slightly different question - where would Wolves be?
  10. Reid seems ot have moved to the right wing?
  11. Bein Sports presenting it as 4-2-3-1 with Wright at RB, Mags at CB and Bryan at LB.

    I don't think he does though, does he? Maybe some memorable occasions, but as Dave F points out above his record of starting and finishing games is absolutely fine.

    Agree with this but to mimic the Chelsea set up we would probably orient the front three a bit differently : Fielding Wright Flint Baker Brownhill Smith Pack Bryan Reid Paterson Diedhiou Not quite so much space between the front three, but definitely Reid and Paterson playing off Diedhou, and drifting around the place a bit. Really like the look of that set up actually.

    Ryan Kent - recalled from Freiburg, and now signed on loan.

    Just because there’s a fee for not playing him doesn’t mean that we can’t not play him. There just a cost. It’s much the the same as being able to pay £50 to be able to drive in bus lanes all day :-)
