  1. The culture is the short answer imo. The default culture is the easy life, low expectations and a cushy time for a good wage. You get the odd manager who sorts it out like GJ and SC but it always reverts to type.
  2. And Holden's "not quite up to the standards we expect but we always bounce back." Appointing a weak rookie head coach to manage a squad that likes the easy life was yet another master stroke by Lansdown. I have little faith he will get it right this time either.
  3. Patience please, Pearson will need to be interviewed 3 times over a 6 week period first!
  4. The sticking point may be the clause that requires him to say at regular intervals how wonderful the Lansdowns are and what a great support Ashton is. At least that's what seems to have sealed the job for Holden.
  5. A reset is required in the form of Ashton being stripped of his power, the fitness/conditioning and medical staff being replaced and a DoF and coaches chosen by Pearson being brought in. Simply getting rid of as many players as possible will not be enough.
  6. They remind me of the last relegation side. A group that by and large doesn't give a toss.
  7. That can't happen unless control of all football operations is taken away from Ashton. Steve thinks the sun shines out of his backside so I don't plan to hold my breath.
  8. To steal a line from GJ, we have a squad full of players who like being footballers but don't like playing football.
  9. It's easy to be distracted by worrying about how you are going to spend your hard earned thousands this week to be fair. I mean, there are so many flash cars to choose from.
  10. But Steve said Ashton is doing a great job and that our recruitment has been good. So he can enjoy his £500k a year for as long as Steve is around.
  11. There is never an excuse for lack of effort. This lot appear not to give a toss.
  12. Because oil and water don't mix.
  13. They are right though, the atmosphere is in tents.
  14. This falls short of a conspiracy theory as it has some actual verifiable, documented facts in it. Must try harder!
  15. We can get rid of the out of contract ones but the rest are sitting pretty however badly they do. So the cosy life that is playing for Bristol City goes on. Who would want to sign them anyway, especially with the financial effect of Covid?
