Good luck to him if he takes the job I think its Lansdowns way of saying up yours to the fans because I see us in league 1 before the prem, Lee Johnson has left the squad in a bit of a mess Diedhou and Elliason likely to leave and no money to spend on new players due to the current climate

LJ has left it in a mess? Isn’t that Ashtons domain?

It doesn't make sense that Holden would take a weekend to accept a dream job. I reckon he's been offered a coach role, with a bigger name coming in above him. 

This scenario gives me slight hope but I expect to be disappointed

Assuming holden accepts and the reports are correct looking at the poll on this thread only 6% of around 1000 polled are even satisfied with this. With the number of votes polled then its fair to say that this is the general view of the city fan base. I  cant think of any other business who would set out to alienate their paying customers who have voiced their displeasure so much.

My only hope is that holden is given some serious backing in the transfer market as this situation isn't his fault and of course the fans will back him and the team.

The lack of communication from the club is appalling on this when we are seeing state of the art rugby facilities and an ambitious managerial appointment for them suggests to me that bristol sport have changed focus.

Nah it's happening

Do you know that for certain? If not, why are you thinking it other than what Gregor has written/odds/what people have written about what Gregor has written? Maybe I’ve missed something else

I may also be naive but I still just don’t see how Holden is going to get the job. If he was, surely they wouldn’t sack J Mac just before? It’s not like Holden has a ready made Assistant he has to bring with him. It suggests to me theres more to this, J Mac has been moved aside for someone new to step in and Holden to continue as Assistant. 
Either that or Holden hasn’t enjoyed working with Mac and that was part of the deal and the delay is him forming his own team. However, that would also suggest he has accepted the role and if that was the case surely it would have been announced and his back room staff appointments would be announced in time as and when they happened. Nothing about a Holden appointment make sense in the timings of events. The only reason people think is is because of what Gregor is posting however he is clearly being fed tit bits by the club to keep him interested and develop this on going drama. I really think there could still be a major twist in all this. 

If there was anything in Gregor’s comments that weren’t  true the club would have issued a statement to confirm he hadn’t been offered the role. The fact they haven’t means what Gregor is reporting is correct. 
 

People have to accept that for whatever reason Dean Holden is the clubs choice to replace Lee Johnson.

Get with the programme, the successes are all Ashton’s, the failures are down to LJ.

Very true. Kings win wars and generals win battles. Few remember the generals but we have to learn all about the kings.

You replied to my opinion on it. It may well be Holden but it still doesn’t seem certain to me. You seemed to think it was a done deal so I genuinely wondered why. I haven’t read every comment on here so I thought I might have missed something

The sad thing is, DH must have been that low on the list that it's taken 5 weeks of negotiations with other people which must have all fell through for various reasons, to now only have the DH card to play

 

If it was always their number 1 priority and they come out saying it was always their plan, why waste time with what has been reported as interviewing 8 others and taking 5 weeks and counting to appoint the assistant to LJ

 

He is likely to be right up there as the least experienced of the bunch, but is cheap and knows the club and they are banking on that being the recipe for success

I agree.  I think the club owes us at least some explanation of what Plan A (B, C, ...) was and why that didn't work out.  One thing for sure is that DH was not Plan A.

It also seems a big mistake to let these message boards rant on and on with no information at all from the club.  They could have stopped at least some of the wild speculation (whatever did happen to the Pochettino thread?).

Anyone else worried we may get relegated this season? 

We have a decent squad, so I wouldn't go that far

It's more a case DH hasn't got the quality to get us to the Premiership which has to be the target and the reason they suggested LJ was sacked

Do we though? If we lose Fam and Elliasson think we would struggle to replace them. We don t have much experience either. Easy to lose a few on the bounce and wonder where on earth the next win is going to come from.

I wouldn't say our defence is great and we create very few chances not a great combination.

I'll be discussing #BristolCity on @bbcbristolsport at 2.15pm this afternoon. Well worth a listen!
 

Gregor M on Radio Bristol this afternoon if anyone is interested. Listen to it sat relaxing in the garden in the sun having a cider. 
If you have high blood pressure best give it a miss . ;)

got a feeling you could be right with Williams. 

I was having a chuckle at people saying that yesterday - now its looking like it could be him or anyone.

My money is on Mr. Pastry - it would be fitting of this board.

(one for the not so young there)

Holden will get 100% support from me btw.

That Graeme Bailey guy tweeted this on the 23rd of July so I doubt his recent tweet is reliable

He said Pulis was in the running!

Another northern journo, who has good insight in the north, but no knowledge of the south.
