  1. Genuine question: what evidence is there for this?
  2. He should have said oral, not verbal. Verbal just means words, so a written contract is indeed made up of words. Oral means spoken.
  3. I mean if I was appointed as a highly experienced manager to an interim job and my performance was more than the previous total novice who was sacked, I would certainly expect the person who hired me to completely ignore that performance in the role I was being appointed to and confirm my permanent appointment quickly and with a significant pay rise. . .
  4. Oh no! Looks like Steve Lansdown might be taking into account the performance of the manager in his interim role in helping to decide whether to make a permanent appointment! That’s terrible and some Bristol City fans are going to be very angry.
  5. Our squad is absolutely bang average for the Championship. We don’t have players of sufficient quality to compete at the top. Teams who do well have 2 or 3 or more players who are outstanding and stick out whenever you play them. We don’t. Massive gap and big overhaul needed.
  6. Note to Steve Lansdown: a lot Bristol City supporters will be very angry indeed if, in making your decision to appoint a permanent manager, you take any account at all of performances and results by teams managed by a candidate, especially if they are performances or results achieved at Bristol City, the very environment in which he will be expected to manage going forwards. Very angry.
  7. 100% agree with this. You start the season with a 12.5% chance of promotion. You play 46 games and if you finish 3rd to 6th you then have a 25% chance of promotion. 46 matches to give yourself a 25% chance of promotion. Crazy. The aim MUST be automatic promotion and then, if you fail, you might get a 25% chance of ‘lucky loser’. Watching us not get promotion from 5 play off campaigns should surely embed this in everyone’s head. 3rd to 6th is NOT succcess.
  8. The facts don’t support that opinion. 39 goals conceded in 31 games under Holden - that’s 1.26 goals per game. 16 goals conceded in 10 games under Pearson - that’s 1.6 goals per game. A much worse record defensively for Pearson.
  9. I didn’t refer to the tweet. I referred to the Sun on Sunday article which very clearly refers to Pearson’s disappointing results as a cause for consideration of Robins. https://the72.co.uk/230592/coventry-city-boss-mark-robins-linked-with-bristol-city-job/
  10. Reported by the Sun on Sunday today. Pearson’s results not good enough.
  11. Even if you give him credit for the 3 points v Middlesbrough, where he had 5 minutes input, Pearson has secured 1.1 points per game. That gets you 50.6 points over a season. Usually that keeps you up, but not always. if you don’t count Middlesbrough when he wasn’t in charge, it’s 8 points in 9 games, or 0.89 points per game. That’s 41 points over a season which will pretty much always get you relegated. Surely Steve Lansdown would have expected a better return than that from appointing a ‘highly experienced’ manager. What basis does that provide for making a permanent appointment
  12. Eh? We had 1 shot on target (apparently, I must have missed it). So, no, we most definitely did not deserve to win the game.
  13. Play Wells in the middle they say . . . Still utter
  14. Let’s stop using the euphemism ‘sloppy’. It’s , really
  15. Some brilliant pictures on Sky Sports of classic desperate, wide-eyed stares from Richard Keogh in the Huddersfield defence as he argued with his team mates
