  1. It was not my intention to be sarcy at all, it was just my recollection that you had suggested before that we could have got Benitez. By all means correct me if my memory is faulty.
  2. Fair comment about Klopp and Guardiola but Bielsa has never managed a club as big as the ones they have. I suspect he is too eccentric an individual for the truly big clubs to take on! His Bilbao side was possibly the most exciting to watch I have seen though.
  3. Just another sign that the business of football stinks.
  4. It was interesting that LJ referred to having to pay "family fees" as well as paying agents in his answer about transfers. This seems to be an extreme example!
  5. Klopp has just paid tribute to his analysts for their role in today's win. Face it Bob, you're a dinosaur!
  6. It is also pointless unless a coach of global renown is likely to want to add Bristol City to their cv.
  7. As a matter of interest, and ignore me if memory is playing tricks on me, do you still believe we should and could have persuaded Rafa Benitez to be our Head Coach?
  8. Absolutely, he was such a fans' favourite, never got any abuse on here and stuff ....
  9. A cold day brings to mind their big hit, "I'm Not In Gloves".
  10. You mean they are not a plucky little club who did it all on a shoestring? Why wasn't I told?!
  11. He has already done the hero bit and if he is ambitious he is not likely to want to take a step down. Which is what it would be, however progressive we are. My guess is that he would do a Dyche so to speak and still be at Bournemouth if they go down.
  12. Our defensive record had been dreadful so a run of clean sheets as part of a general reduction in the number of goals we concede is potentially as valuable as getting a striker in.
  13. Harsh perhaps, but he does tend to preside over long bad runs, around the same time every season. The only reason he is not known as Streaky Eddie is that it only seems to have been noticed this season for some reason.
  14. You suggest that it is somehow a unique Bristol City excuse that signing players in January is difficult, though that appears to be the view of every club in the country. More so when it comes to strikers of course. Your list is both short - naturally as there have been few notable signings as usual at this point - and includes nobody who would meet our needs. What advice would you give the club? Bear in mind that many fans are demanding a proven 20 goal striker.
  15. You don't name the players as per my question but how many are strikers and of those players who would you have had us sign? Cavaleiro, who was already at Fulham and who they signed for £15m presumably excluded.
