  1. Nigel Pearson is very much football related and the direction he's taking, his next journey, and his exploration of the City, are clearly of interest to many on this forum. Currently a hot topic in fact.
  2. Yep, I do the circuit at least once a week. Not exactly wild, but a good way for Nige to get the feel of Bristol and it's history if he can get into his stride through the many well-wishers. Seen Cotts more than once surveying the scene from his balcony and Kalas taking in the ambience of Gaol Ferry Steps amongst his fellow beardies. The Orchard's a good little pub, but I'd like to think he'd feel the urge to stop off at the Nova too.
  3. My first City manager was Alan Dicks. Pretty sure NP, at going on 58, is the oldest manager at time of appointment in my time. Lennartsson, Coppell, Lumsden, Gary Johnson, Denis Smith all younger.
  4. Moore, Paterson and Lansbury - all involved in our worst results/performances - not included last night. All either not very good, or out of form, so their replacement with better players will have made a big difference on it's own. You can't start with 3 obviously weak areas in this league, it brings the whole team down. There's no doubt Pearson's arrival had a positive affect but it was also a far better and more balanced team last night than recently..
  5. @Mr Popodopolous Lansbury needs to be added in the currently injured - not available last night.
  6. Yep, Bristol City will always have my support but been really struggling to keep up the enthusiasm these last 2 or 3 years. Was very dubious about getting a ST, but that's all changed tonight. All credit to SL for a superb appointment.
  7. Maybe, but similar inconsistency - good spells, poor/invisible spells seem to have been a feature of Pato's whole career, and it's been similar at AG. I agree he's a 1 in 5 player; very good for that 1 - looks a silky player and a real crowd pleaser - but it's not enough.
  8. Fair comments Greedo, and of course the absurd decision to appoint DH certainly have set us back.. No doubt Hughton is a good manager but I was never part of the clamour to bring him here. Not sure his personality would have fitted here, or his style of play, so he didn't fire me with enthusiasm. I wanted Cook in the Summer, and again this time, but hadn't seen Pearson as a possible contender. If, as now seems likely, he is someone the club would accept then he's absolutely the ideal choice imo.
  9. Have you forgotten the 5-0 (could have been 10) humiliation at PNE?
  10. I didn't know there was a love in with Adkins, I was merely replying to him being mentioned by the OP. Adkins isn't one I'd thought much about, but he is an experienced manager (55) with a PL promotion on his CV. I've made it very clear on the forum that I want Cook, so anyone else mentioned so far would be disappointing afaic.
  11. Cook remains overwhelmingly my first choice - just like GJ and Steve Cotterill at the time everything about him indicates to me he would be the ideal man for the club. It would go a long way to lifting me out of my BCFC doldrums if he was announced, and I hope City are going all out to get him. If Cook's not interested I'd take the experience of Adkins over most of the other likely candidates for the short term, but if he wanted a 2.5 year contract minimum rather than come in as a short term firefighter who has to prove he's worth a longer contracts, I'm not so sure about that.
  12. To save a bit more time, do you have Paul Cook's phone number you could put up on here for him?
  13. Be helpful to distinguish between the 2 O. Edwards. Edwards - 10 games. = Opi Edwards. Or Op. for short. Has he had an op? Wouldn't be surprised, but he's knackered anyway! Other Edwards - think 4 games and counting - 2 or 3 to Covid, the remainder to injury. = Owura Edwards, or Ow. for short. Is he saying Ow? Afraid he might be, but he's knackered anyway!
