Post match interview: I can’t wait.

Feels like he is sitting on the fence - for obvious reasons I guess - but wants to say more.  

I didn’t think that. He also said the owner’s patience will run out at some point but he didn’t think it would be this season.

Sky interview was abysmal. The lack of responsibility should be a red flag to the people who employ him. It's basic leadership. Accountability and control.

He was talking about STILL believing amazing work was done during COVID and in the recent pre-season (i.e. him - very conceited) and not knowing why it's gone the way it has since. He also talked about player turnover, which he now describes as "for whatever reason" (he knows the reason and he's been well funded in lieu of it).

The message in all of it is not my fault. I understand he's at the end of the line but some humility and personal responsibility would have gone a long way before now.

Kept saying “for whatever reason”, talked about turnover of players. Refused to slate the Lansdowns for selling ‘best’ players. 

Talked about playing young players??!!??!!

“For whatever reason” is an unacceptable answer. It’s literally his job to understand the reasons.

Lansdownes only interested in turnover

Maybe fans should or will stay away next season and don’t buy individual tickets. £40 is a lot of money when a lot will be sitting on their cash since COVID. First time this season I didn’t buy a season ticket and I’ve only been twice this season as the dross served up is not worth paying to watch. (2 games were 1 free and the other £10).

Totally agree

But it’s always been thus Rob. Never takes accountability for anything - it’s one of his biggest failings.  Consistently said that I would have so much more respect for him if he held his hands up every now and again especially as he is so quick to lap up the praise when it comes.  Taking responsibility is a trait of a good manager in any walk of life and it’s another major facet that he just does not have.

He doesnt need to take responsibility with SL at the helm.....he will get a pat on the head and told to give it another go.

LJ speaks: " For whatever reason BCFC have had a high turnover of players. We have an identity & a style so we must keep believing in our philosophy & finish the season on a high. "

Identity = slow, predictable, non creative, long ball football bringing the worst out of our players. 

Please leave LJ

Got to be honest, after the latest run of results, and that shitshow today, if I was a manager/coach who was out of work, and/or at a lower level and had decent prospects, I would be contacting our board to put my name forward.

Contact of some type, letter/email/phone call, outlining what I would do with the current squad, who I would move out and bring in, and just say that should anything come up in the near future, then I'd love a chance to have a more formal chat.

He's walking a tightrope, and even though he is well supported here, he surely is running out of time and chances.

Really wish the Radio Bristol interviewers would go for the jugular. All too respectful and nice.

Push for answers. Represent the fans views.

We tried that on BBC Wilts live phone in over recent year so and they sensor the questions especially when the manager is in the studio

Played good stuff.... 

Lots of positives....

One moment of loss of concentration... 

Equally matched them...

First goal always crucial in a Derby....

He said none of those. I thought you and Fordy between you would have done better. No sweets for you tonight.....
