  1. Where we are probably has more to do with Ashton’s recruitment than LJ’s management IMO. Yes we’ve consolidated our Championship status so credit to LJ but very doubtful LJ would’ve got City into the Championship in the first place so the greater credit has to be given to Cotts (for me). Cotts with LJs backing- now that would’ve been interesting (though appreciate different model with Ashton in place).
  2. If he's in favour of a museum instead, that'll do!
  3. Enjoyed it, thanks David. Good luck with it and will look out for these.
  4. It’s working on the new app for me but not on the main website. I had to download the new app a few weeks ago to get the commentary to work as wasn’t working on the previous app.
  5. Interesting how consistent we've been over the last 3 seasons after 30 games. Our 3 new recuits may make all the difference this year (here's hoping). Current vs previous seasons records (first 30 matches only) Bristol City after 30 matches in the same league / division GP W D L GF GA Pts *
  6. As we often complain we don't get enough national coverage, maybe a good thing for once.
  7. A good little snippet on the Championship page of BBC Sport today about our good run and 5 City players scoring for different EFL clubs yesterday: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51344082 Streaky Johnson strikes again They say momentum is huge in football and there's probably no manager or head coach out there who exemplifies that more than Bristol City boss Lee Johnson. A club record eight successive league defeats in 2016-17, nine wins in a row across all competitions last season and now four consecutive victories without conceding a goal for the first time since 1990.
  8. Based on last 8 games from Soccerstats which includes part of bad run. Still good: Form table (last 8 matches) GP W D L GF GA GD Pts 1 Nottm Forest 8 5 2
  9. Can't even see how to access audio commentary today - seems to have disappeared. Sent an email but probably will get a response on Monday!
  10. At the time of the plans SL said he considered building to 35k including Atyeo but they decided against it. Presumably on the basis of lets fill 27k first. No idea what they can do without buying all the houses behind though. I’d have thought it’d be quite limited so as not to be financially worthwhile for the degree of expanded capacity.
  11. Pleased we’ve got Benik onboard. He’s proved what he can do at Mk Dons and Wolves and a couple of years ago we’d never have been able to sign him. He’s a player I’d have loved the club to sign in the past. OK so he’s not done as well at Stoke with off field problems no doubt contributing. He says sleeping better and lost weight, fitter etc and looking to show us the old Benik. Think this could be a very good signing for us.
  12. Was going to pay for standard Now tv day pass so great to get a week pass for £2.69. Easy to enter code into account and worked perfectly!
  13. Seems to be happening - very interesting signing http://www.insidefutbol.com/2019/08/03/bristol-city-agree-fee-for-promising-monaco-youngster/432268/
  14. Very pleased with this signing. Felt a few years ago we should've gone for him when at Southend but City didn't seem to want to invest in the keeper position in the same way as an outfield player. Can be worth several points a season with a good keeper. Welcome DB.
  15. Thought Millwall were playing some US outfit for a minute there. Can only see a Derby win unfortunately but stranger things have happened. Let’s hope it’s an away win.
  16. Perhaps he should be left to negotiate contracts but not to head or be involved with recruitment. Leave that to DOF?
  17. Interesting team building arranged by the manager, Gary Caldwell - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46405477 The last paragraph was interesting: "The manager's got a saying - get comfortable being uncomfortable. You have to find ways of coping and dealing with pressures that come along. The army base was certainly uncomfortable but we all found a way to get through every exercise they gave us and we finished it very strongly." A bit different than going to Dubai in the international break!
  18. Yes, the bingo builder. He's signed 40-50 and still trying to find the right combination. More meat for the grinder. He'll be saying this over and over again until SL (eventually) puts him out of our misery! He does seem to be "ready to trade" so who knows what the cat will drag in. Have little confidence we'll up the quality which is what's desperately needed.
  19. I’d agree but just the robin without the BC. Perhaps a surreptitious release to gauge informal opinion when largely decision made? Could be wrong but did cross my mind.
  20. The top image is probably the best of the recent new drafts imo. Very simple and no need for our name or date. I’d have the robin facing right though. Not a fan of the image Magic Man posted. Just too fussy trying to get the name, date, bridge, robin and football in. Can see BS going for something much simpler going by the Bears re-brand anyway. Really hope it’s not something like Concorde though.
  21. Best badges are simple and instantly recognisable like Forest and Wolves. Would be delighted to dump the crest which is for the City of Bristol and not Bristol City (IMO). Updated robin and suspension bridge would be nice as the bridge differentiates us from other clubs with a robin but any decent robin badge without the crest. No need for date either.
  22. I know, Glen, and that’s what’s partly holding us back too imo. If SL’s not willing to come out of his comfort zone, then we need a far more effective and experienced manager who he thinks he can get on with to work within the set parameters. Surely, it would be preferable if SL appointed the best manager/coach he could get and let him get on with it with less interference?
