  1. No offence, but it’s like you’re living in an alternative reality. What do you expect will happen to the test events?
  2. Does anyone know the wider role he’s been given in the coaching set-up? Is it just a case of inviting a clearly bright bloke into the meetings to learn from the Snr coaches or anything more specific? Would be a great link between coaches and fans to have Rene as a regular on the programme and his comments certainly inspired confidence in where the club is headed.
  3. He’s certainly raised the bar and really makes it far more of a professional set-up with him included. As an aside, wouldn’t be at all surprised to see him have a great coaching future in the game. Really smart guy.
  4. What a natural. He provided genuinely insightful commentary and a shed a light on what the coaching set up and dressing room’s like. He was fantastic. Can we have him every week?
  5. Not sure that’s the best example, it was incredibly tame compared to what most supporters would have said.
  6. Wow!! That tells you all you need to know. As nice a guy as he may be, and this isn’t meant to be a hugely personal critique, JL is severely challenged in a professional sense. I’ve got mates that worked with him at HL who felt sorry having to work around him as he just wasn’t cut out for that life. He is borderline special needs and it’s wrong for his father to place him in the media spotlight he has. JL is clearly a City supporter and I don’t believe he has a bad bone in his body, as opposed to the cancerous snake that is Ashton. It’s clear from this interview that he doesn’t bel
  7. Agree, but we need to keep asking. Sadly the only person who I’ve got any confidence in to hold them to account is Geoff Twentyman. If we get no answers tonight, we need to find other avenues. Let’s not just roll over and let them to this time and time again. Let’s show the passion and ambition they lack.
  8. I thought it may be useful to create a list of genuine questions we’d like the press to ask on our behalf tonight. I’ll start us off with a few; • Why was the standout candidate Chris Hughton, who has a highly successful track record of gaining promotion from this division, not appointed after he expressed interest in the job and was interviewed? • Why has the process taken 5 weeks and is this evidence that Dean Holden was not the board’s primary choice and a number of other candidates have turned down the job? • Is the accepted model of Mark Ashton and the board being
  9. Genuine fear of mine too. it would have been unthinkable 5 weeks ago, but sadly I cannot see anything other than a relegation scrap with this lack of experience. With the right backing and CH in charge I would be confident on play-offs at the very least .
  10. Was thinking more of his media work tbh.. ""It sits well with me. As a professional he's [Holden] a sound bloke, a great coach. It may not be the popular choice outside the walls of Ashton Gate with the fans if everything you read on social media is to be believed."
  11. Yes, it's also why I'd treat any comments from Owers with a pince of salt. He's not going to be brutally honest about Holden for example if it's going to negatively impact on his son's career. As much as I like him, it's for this reason BBC Bristol could benefit from sticking to co-commentators with no ties etc.. in my opinion.
  12. You’re embarrassing yourself
  13. Was just about to post the same, if they have chosen to do this with our longest serving player, who must be going through a really difficult time right now; relocation, having to find a school for his son at such short notice etc.. is absolutely disgusting. Regardless of whether they’ve used this to flush out a leak or not, for the club to make no formal announcement or statement is equally disgraceful. What a classless, bunch of ***** we now have running our club. It’s not acceptable. We have to make a stand, hold them to account and start to claim back some control. The
  14. Why is it a choice of foreign, asset-stripping owners or The Lansdowns? The irony of your comment of course is that the Lansdowns have already stripped the club’s main asset in Ashton Gate and it now belongs to them. Surely a board who share the same objectives as the fans, who hire the best talent they can sensibly afford and leave them to get the **** on with the job would suffice? It’s really not a big ask for the owners to stop interfering and treat the club correctly as the custodians they should be, as opppsed to feeding their ego and treating It as a shiny toy for Jonbo
  15. How about toning your gleeful bitchiness down and focus your energies elsewhere, as opposed to targeting long standing supporters who are quite rightly angered by the current situation. Prat.
