  1. Agreed - part time bastards! If us poor old age pensioners can make the effort, I'm sure that most of the grumblers on here can get stuck in. After all, who else will boo our team when they have a poor half?
  2. I am looking forward to getting back to Ashton Gate and believe that the club probably needs as many sales as possible - I support that. If we sell fewer season tickets, the mob on here will be baying for more new expensive signings. If we all get behind the club and vote with our financial support, it will be better for everyone.
  3. Like most real fans, I renewed my tickets within half an hour of opening. Hope to be from a fully vaccinated family and relatively bullet proof for the hew season. COYR!
  4. We look weak, slow in indecisive. It has not always been like that during this season. The changes of manager do not seem to have made any great difference. Heaven knows how the crocked players can be assessed for new contracts or not. Very difficult situation to manage.
  5. It would be more accurate to point out that we now seem to be breeding more Bells.
  6. Lots of very interesting psychobabble in this thread. Of course Dean would feel a sense of betrayal -and I would sympathise with that. But given the run we have been on, I am just relieved that the dial has shifted and we looked more like a football team last night. Long may it continue!
  7. His session on the roof was probably filmed this morning and he might have been with the team in Middlesborough this afternoon.
  8. Will the Lansdown private jet be on standby to whisk NP up to Middlesborough in time for him to influence the team tomorrow night?
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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!)
  14. 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.
  15. Do you prefer to remain hopeless?
  16. 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!
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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!
  20. I have no idea until he can be judged under more normal circumstances. I hope he gets the chance to show his mettle.
  21. 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?
  22. 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!!
  23. All that may be ideal but I cannot see how it would transform this season whilst we have half a squad.
