  1. His session on the roof was probably filmed this morning and he might have been with the team in Middlesborough this afternoon.
  2. Will the Lansdown private jet be on standby to whisk NP up to Middlesborough in time for him to influence the team tomorrow night?
  3. Same old, same old I'm afraid Fordy. I will give my total support to the guy in charge because i want the very best for Bristol City. The king is dead - long live the king, seems to be totally reasonable in the circumstances. I hope he signs up and saves our bacon!
  4. If he can save us from relegation and build a winning team, I don't care whether he is a yes man, no man or anything else. He will, like all managers and players be falsely labelled by certain sections of the fan base. I believe that he has a very difficult task in front of him and I hope that some of the injured players can get back into contention to help him lift the whole club.
  5. Its great to see the optimism on this thread and I really hope that NP can save our bacon and go on to create a promotion winning team. It will be very interesting to see how he copes with the immediate challenges of the injury crisis, lack of left sided players and the general lack of physicality and pace in the remnants of our squad available for selection.
  6. Willing to accept close to national minimum wage so that some sensitive fans on here are not outraged. Cannot be a "yes" person - but must be prepared to disagree with everything asked by MA or SL. On the other hand, he must agree with the majority of fans and be ready to resign as soon as he loses a match. Cannot be linked in any way whatsoever with MA, SL or any other person within the club. Must adopt a style of play that supported by every fan on here. Cannot have ginger hair.
  7. You are confused and in error. I HOPE that my team and management and whole club do well. It is a FACT that we have a dozen first team players currently injured. I HOPE they soon get better. Unlike many on here, who appear to offer their support on a conditional basis, I always try to be positive and upbeat on all matters Bristol City, I would never boo managers/staff/players, because I believe that this would be more likely to prove counterproductive. (I tell a lie!! I did join in the Pulis to Portsmouth song- or wherever it was that was after him. Happened at Brentford, if I recall correctly = sorry!)
  8. Unless some of the injuries heal pretty quickly, the new chap may end up fielding half the youth team. I feel sad for Dean as I felt sad for Lee - but will support the new chap because that is in the best interests of the club.
  9. Do you prefer to remain hopeless?
  10. Still here. Sad to see anyone lose a job in such difficult circumstances. I hope that we can find a new saviour, but we cannot uninvent the current injury crisis. I hope for the best and fear the worst but will support the new manager with optimism and positive enthusiasm. That is my creed!
  11. My optimism has served me very well over the years. I fully expect us to survive this season comfortably and to go from strength to strength next season. Luck always changes.
  12. First few games and end of last season was not too bad. Now examine the list of players he has missed over the course of this season and ask yourself - would those missing players have made a difference? Loyalty because it may save us from spending a large amount of cash that could better be used for players in the next window. There is no guarantee that a new manager, with the same injury list, would do any better.
  13. If I was in SLs position I would do the same. Better to trust the relative who will inherit the club than give total control to an outsider. I fully expect that Jon will progress very well and be a safe pair of hands for years to come. Now that the end of all the building work is in sight, there may well be a better flow of funds in years tome that will propel us on to glory!
  14. I have no idea until he can be judged under more normal circumstances. I hope he gets the chance to show his mettle.
  15. We did not manage to replace Eliasson - and we really miss the assists. But even if we had him and he sustained a torn hamstring and was out for three months, how would that help right now? Good full backs can give width and Dasilva is a great player....but injured. Hunt can show superb quality in delivering crosses, but looks knackered. O'Dowda can give pace and provide excellent crosses....but he is injured. Pring, Weimann - injured. Where do we conjure up the playing qualities that we need right now?
  16. He has no players who are able to give him width and pace. The forwards have little opportunity to score because the do not get many decent crosses and they are not very well supported by midfield goal contributions. Maybe when Pato gets back to full fitness, but we need a bit more than that. Left footed players needed!!
  17. All that may be ideal but I cannot see how it would transform this season whilst we have half a squad.
  18. Have you any suggestion beyond replacing the head coach though?
  19. At the risk of repeating previous posts, I don't think we will see the true Dean Holden during a crisis like the one we are currently facing. He would have agreed his "masterplan" with Mark Ashton and the other coaches and this would have been approved by the Lansdown family. Trying to implement that plan is clearly very difficult right now.
  20. Thanks Fordy. I admit that I am wilting somewhat and running out of steam. I wish the current problems could be reinvented.
  21. I agree that the football has not been very good in the last couple of years but I wonder if this is due to short term problems, such as those we face now, or basic methodology. I still find great attraction in building a team with a youth policy and I hope we stich to that plan however much we are frustrated by "bumps in the road".
  22. My point was that the fan did not see any of that but blamed Klopp for what he regards as a failing season. I told him he was daft!
  23. Life is too short to spend more time on here. I dip in and out because I have better things to do than spend all day on the forum. I will simply follow my eyes and reason and continue supporting City. I don't believe that my theorising or even the theorising of worthies on here adds up to a hill of beans. We can analyse until the cows come home but can influence nothing. Its all a bit futile really. Such is life.
