  1. If anyone was struggling to find the definition of a losing mentality then please look no further. The Lansdown’s must love unambitious lemmings like this.
  2. No offence, but it’s like you’re living in an alternative reality. What do you expect will happen to the test events?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. Hope I’m wrong and he scores a shed load for us this season, but I haven’t been overly impressed with his technique or decision making at times. If he’s not scoring, he brings little else to the team and as others have said above, he missed some pretty simple chances against Exeter through a combination of poor control and lack of composure. Now hopefully he comes good and he shares a similar knack for scoring (however they go in) to his compatriot Shaun Goater, but I would choose Fam over Wells and rate him as a higher quality player as it stands.
  7. Not sure that’s the best example, it was incredibly tame compared to what most supporters would have said.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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 .
  12. 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."
  13. 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.
  14. You’re embarrassing yourself
