Steve Lansdown interview

I got that impression too, whilst i could hear his brain saying “we missed an opportunity with Hughton in hindsight”.

His comment about a couple not being right for the individuals as to where “they were in their careers” was interesting; could be the likes of Howe (wanted a break from the game), Alex Neil (due to size of compo) and Jokanovic (still had year to run on his high salary contract) - all just speculation but would make sense.....time will tell.

Agree.

Think he realised he got the Holden Appointment wrong.  Allowed himself to be convinced that Holden was the best (whether that was the way the interview was conducted / lead I don’t know).  He doesn’t like being made a mug of, and to have to do that with 7 months is not something he likes.

His big problem is not letting it happen again.  He isn’t a football expert, Mark Ashton can’t spot a bullshit answer in an interview because he has no playing or management expertise.  What SL should really be doing is bringing in someone independent to assist.  I dunno who, but someone like Joe Jordan, or maybe a bit more current who can give them that ability to see through bullshit both from the interviewee and interviewer side, the person who delves that bit deeper.

Defo agree here, exactly what’s needed I think...someone who can ask what they think of the players in the squad, how they’d set things up, what we need as a squad , strengths weaknesses etc.. and can provide some guidance to Steve and co in terms of the responses to those questions. What’s your consultancy rate these days Dave?

I do think Steve is a good guy and that his motivation is to make BCFC something to make Bristolians proud. 

Having said that he also said he could see things were getting worse and has been in football long enough to read the warning signs.

Why the F then do we not have a VERY short list of coaches to chase now? Other clubs do their homework and go for the man that they think can deliver. Meanwhile, we put out a job advert, sit back and read the CVs and have a board meeting to go through the applications. 

FFS it isn't that hard surely. Identify someone who can demonstrate they have done it AT THIS level and go after them. 

It all seems so stilted and corporate compared to how other clubs do it. 

I completely agree. He must be happy to stay as we are until he decides to push onwards now, or maybe never. its his club . We just help him to pay towards it.

I still reckon Neil Warnock would come running to City if Lansdown asked him.

Is he brave enough to drop his pride and offer him the job?

Would Warnock get us up?

I'll bet he would love to come here, give it everything and show every City supporter that he should have been made manager here years ago and after Gary Johnson departed. He would absolutely been a man on a mission if at BCFC.

The playing side is in such disarray, I'd offer him the job immediately at the end of the season, give him what he asks for and see where it takes us.  Odds are it will be our best ever finish in the Championship.

 

Look to the future thereafter.  Look to results now.

Judging by that performance Lansdown needs to take the bull by the horns and proactively go out and headhunt his manager and quickly. 6 weeks of Ashton dithering and we will be playing *Rovers next season. 

 

*Forest Green Rovers

May want to start ringing round managers yourself tonight Steve, because it's going to take someone decent to turn this shower of shit around, and if the club takes "their time" otherwise known as weeks, then you'll be looking at someone to get us out of league 1 next season.

Should have sacked tweedle dum and tweedle dee when you sacked Holden as well.

10 points behind 6th place, and 10 above 22nd. Hurry up because we're not likely to get anything from the next 2 or 3 at this rate.

agreed!

i'm trying to work out why I am so angry after today's performance- after all - what should you expect when two assistants are left in charge?

i've realised it's because these two were supposed to be the tactical nous to back up DH's admitted inexperience.   and yet we looked even more clueless today.     there is no leader on the pitch either.  clueless.

We are gonna take our time basically means we will try and wait until the end of the season to appoint someone to save a bit of cash. 

Probably in the minority but I don't believe a word the man says anymore.

What CATastrophe has happened to the Bears then ?

This is going to piss some City fans off (those that follow rugby too) but I would luv it if the Bears start losing too. Luv it!

Take solace from the Bears, my sweaty arse.

Exactly what I have said in another thread!

An Ashton Gate crowd can’t do ‘toxic’ - a few murmurs of discontent is not ‘toxic’ - go to Italy to see ‘toxic’ or revisit Man City when they wanted Peter Swales out. A couple of years after that I was at Maine Road in 1996 on the day Man City were relegated - now that was ‘toxic’ - but it also hit me as to how loyal and passionate their traditional fans really were. Also, you could revisit the atmosphere within St. James’ Park when Newcastle fans wanted Pardew out - again, that was ‘toxic.’

I’m afraid in this lovely corner of the West Country, ‘toxic’ does not sit well and it doesn’t often rear its ugly head, if at all. LJ oversaw our record number of consecutive league defeats - our response? The odd disgruntled comment thrown bench-wards ... in Italy they’d have stormed the training ground ... ‘toxic’ we just don’t do ...

We are, as a people, more apathetic than most, here in the verdant, bucolic West Country. We just don’t get that worked up about anything. Football included.

And where we did, a bit (for us), back in the 70s and 80s, do "toxic," and give the directors and or the manager, some invective, all that has been smoothed off now by modernisation, refurbishment, redevelopment, corporatisation. By seats, and sitting down. And cctv, and banning orders.

But instead of railing against our apathy, our laid back, cannot-be-bloody-arsed West Countryism non-toxicity, we could instead celebrate it, promote it, shout about it. Own it. Be prowed of it. It is us, what sets us apart.

But we cannot be arsed to even make something of our cannot-be-arsed West Country apathy. And quite right, too.
