Other Manager Options (Merged)

Neil is a good shout, been level with us in the table almost all season, whilst complaining about not being backed properly. Been promoted from this league before. Seems like he would fit between Hughton and Cook in a ranked list of candidates to be honest. Also still pretty young as a manager (39) which might fit our "mould"

Agree with you there 👍

Because all his decisions are judged, everything he does is in the public eye...

He's lost millions chasing the dream

And you and I don't get slated on forums every time we do something to help the club

Most of us spend £400 a year on a ST and then moan all year. He spends £10m and gets slated most weeks.

So yes, I think the pain is more for him

Trust me, he hasn’t lost millions.....he’s very astutely invested that money in “Bristol City” that will give him a very tidy return if he sells the club.  Think land and stadium!!

I’m very grateful for his financial support and what he’s done for South Bristol, but he isn’t giving it away, even if it looks that way in the books.

And I still don’t think he feels more pain than many fans, the same amount quite possibly, but not more.

Fans might not invest as much money like SL has, but they invest their Heart, time and their own money (at a different level) too.

When someone's decisions are in the public domain, your son is the CEO and you've invested millions, I suspect it's fair to say he wants it more than us. It's professional pride, passion and financial impact all together. 

People like us don't have thousands of fans having a pop at us and our families for what we do.

Just because we buy a ticket and a scarf, that's not comparable. Sorry, I think you're wrong. This guy wants and needs this badly

It’s not “fair to say” though is it.  You are stating something about “felling the pain” more than us with no factual basis.  Try having your reasoning with Jerry the SLO, or any other “diehard”.

People like us don't have thousands of fans having a pop at us and our families for what we do.
so what, what’s the relevance to “pain” level.

not badly enough to take our FFP position to the limits of compliance?  Ok, that’s a crap argument, but it no less valid than your claims either.

it’s a futile argument you are positioning...it’s immeasurable, it’s not based on any fact, nor is a comparison possible.  That’s what I am arguing.

I am starting to think the club might be losing the upper hand. 

By getting rid of LJ opened up the managerial market early.  The "out of work" would have been easy accessible and discussions quick fire. Decisions on "go" "no go" to proceed had.

Then the club had to wait until the end of the season to approach "contracted managers". This is a little more difficult. Unofficially discussions followed by official approaches.  More time on top of more time. 

When I commended the club for acting swiftly on the axe of LJ, I am beginning to think it's working against them.

Now at the end of the season, they can in all good conscience allow a level playing field for candidate interviews. 

The short list (long list) process should be nearing its conclusion and an announcement imminent. Problem is other positions are becoming available and those same candidates are going through the very same process at other clubs. 

Honestly I love football.... But who would want to actually work in the industry. It must be a nightmare.

Still got my fingers crossed they get their man, twice removed, offered, re-offered, rejected and back on, back off again.. he is signing for who???? Yep his is going to sign... Nope yes.. it's done ... Which one... "OUR FIRST CHOICE" of course... Oh yeah him... Remind me who again 😉 😉😉

 

 

 

 

It’s a mess for sure.

I’ve completely lost track of whether we’re on our second 1st choice or third 1st choice now 🤔

At this rate it'll be Hobson's choice 😣

We (Bristol City) need a new manager (or head coach). Anyone got any ideas (or inside knowledge) on who it will be or when they’ll be announced by Lisa Knights (or Downsy)?

No (I don't).
