Oh my god Holden. Why not just bring Fam off. He might be big but he can't run much and you just brought off Nagy!

He’s completely hidden since half time 

£30k a week ?

Bye

 

If he goes to Boro Warnock will tear him a new one if he does that

I need to remind everyone that when Dean Smith went to Villa, Brentford appointed his second in command Frank.

He started off appallingly and many fans wanted him out. He, like Dean Holden, had inherited a very gifted team with players like Watkins, Benrahma etc. They stuck with him and look at them now. Now I’m not saying DH or BCFC can replicate what Brentford are doing but I think sticking with DH is best. 

Bournemouth of course being the opposite example.

Overall (as long as we don’t collapse which is possible) it’s been ok tonight. We are a way behind Brentford but so are most teams in this league.

At least they’ve made chance and been positive. Let’s see more of the same Saturday in a winnable game please.

Dean Smith's Brentford had a wonderful attacking style with plenty of battling and exciting players to watch.

Lee Johnson's Bristol City did not have that.

Plodding on and trying to get on with life. Retired but have been offered a contract on Jersey building a new hospital. Am finding retirement a tad boring so could be interested.

Good luck with whatever you decide on Tone 👍

Yes but Brentford were good under Smith. He got poached. Ours was shit and got sacked.

Managed Brondby in Europa League and multiple Danish age group sides. Not even comparable to DH.

Not much similarity between their managerial records prior to their current roles though.

Consider the opposition - much better than Derby etc and we’ve had chances. I’m not saying it’s brilliant but it’s been much more positive.
