Why? Is this personal or do you think every Bristol City fan wants him as manager.

I do not think we all do.

However if you spell Houghton (best wine manufacturer in WA of OZ) or spell it Hughton. We need a manager of potential, football knowledge of the highest level in English league football and maybe with some luck some European experience.

There is no one currently at the club I.E DH that has this experience.

im still hoping for an over sees manager like on previous posts over last weekend will be appointed in coming days.

Pat Lam is reportedly on £800k a year, approx £15k a week.

There is no way whatsoever Dean Holden will be on anywhere near that.  I'd go as far as saying out of the names linked with the job only Hughton and Gerrard would be above that.

Cook, Neil etc would be on a lot less than that!

Neil on over £1m according to one the Preston data guys I converse with.  Hence the buyout being significant.  He believes £2m not £3m.

To be fair, those accounts were from 2019 where we made a lot from sales, so not sure if that would come into it as well. 
 

Either way though, comparisons are rather futile due to the vast difference in wages. 
 

The point about squad fillers is interesting, the counter argument to that would be that a deeper squad is necessary in this league, with how many matches there are, and the intensity of those matches. Look at the few months of championship football under Cotts, a small squad couldn’t cope with the demands of championship football. I’m not sure about where we stand with FFP but I’d also say that those squad fillers shouldn’t stop us pushing the boat out on an experienced manager

Turnover: £17m vs £9m (Football 1st number / Rugby second)

Wages: £25m vs £9m

As you say the comparisons are futile.

It's all about the timing.  Once the appointment is confirmed wait and see the amount of other news that will get released in order to deflect attention. 

This will include:- the new kit,  the new fixture list, lots of stuff on how they can justify keeping our season ticket money and give us Robins TV, some transfer activity and lots of videos of players retuning to training. 

The new manager announcement will be on page 3 of the website before you know it.

  

Well I look forward to all the releases as I'm sick to death of refreshing and seeing the article about holiday camps. 🤬

Quality over quantity wins for me.  See below list of teams and how many players were used last season.  The more consistent your players, the less you need, the better you do?

I'd suggest we have too many fillers and it results in chopping and changing simply hoping to find a player with some form.

That could also easily come down to luck with injuries though, in which case squad depth is needed

You don't find MA quite so charismatic these days then?

Good question Nogbad..........Having heard him speak twice more since the first time I heard him when he came across as very charismatic he’s since lost that charisma and replaced it with over confidence or arrogance if you like............:dunno:

He’s dropped most of the corporate speak he used to come out with and is now more ‘normal’ in his dialogue which is obviously an improvement and leaves him less open to us fans piss taking him. ..........:cool2:
 

Maybe he’s realised that the best way to get the fans on side is to just communicate normally.

I think that has been inflated by the talk of holden tbh. 

I'd imagine Holloway has a better approval rating for next coach than holden 

All we need now is Gregor to tweet it’s a 2 horse race between Pulis and Holden. No sooner than the fans say they’d prefer DH over Tiny, then he’ll be signed up.

I’ve got a horrible feeling that I can’t shake off, that we’re being played with via the media through this ridiculous recruitment process.

The saddest and most significant part of this is:

We are all on this forum saying if it’s Holden we won’t go, will be done with the club etc but they know full well that we are buying customers who are significantly invested in this club emotionally and by the time stadiums open the doors we will all be lining up again

Yep, lining up to watch the local derby against the Gas in L1 soon

I've just got this nagging feeling we have sounded out a young 'big-time' ex footballer who would be more adept working alongside Mark Ashton.

I'm thinking along the lines of Robbie Fowler, Phil Neville, Michael Carrick and Freddie Ljungberg - an ego based appointment to boost the reputation of the club.

Alternatives to Gerrard if you like. 

Ljungberg would be an interesting one potentially, certainly seems the 'head coach' type, Arsenal connections for young talent on loan. A Swede who could convince Elliason to stay put. 

Trying to convince myself we are at least going in a different direction at this stage !

Same thinking with me, except I wonder about an older name also as D of F / consultant and getting both available could be the delay.

Robbie Fowler as the young gun ? Wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest.

Agreed I mentioned Michael Carrick a couple of weeks ago once the Gerrard thing supposedly ended. Carrick with an older head alongside him.

Robbie Fowler is into his Real Estate business whilst football is useful for meet ups.

Good thinking. I notice Ljungberg was in the Skybet odds a few days ago. Not sure if still there.

We could be but no, no,no!

I hope not- not convinced by any, personally- Fowler, Phil Neville- are you kidding??

A merge too far? Totally get the need to merge occasionally but  this thread has been rendered nonsensical by the merges. 

May I suggest an au contraire moment? 

My suggestion being defined simply by the fact that this entire process lasting now some 5 weeks is indeed in itself non sensical. 🤪

Big Tone style summary: make sense of this thread and you've cracked the new gaffer code.
