Summary of interview:

  • ready to work for Bristol City, really pleased to be here, ready to immerse himself here
  • Identify the things that are changeable (to me, don’t bother with things that cant
  • younger player development? All players at all stages of career can look to be developed
  • if they’re good enough try to give them pitch time
  • added pressure of young players if the senior players are not able to help, e.g. trying to sort their own game out
  • no exact science on young player development
  • best chance of success for young players is in a stable team, that’s picking up results with consistent performances
  • no vibes that it’s just short term
  • will look to find a way to work within the culture whilst bringing positives to it
  • re staff - wants to find out what the club is to them from their perspective 
  • Players are very important but team behind the team are too

SL must of seen game Saturday and thought a move for new Head Coach was an immediate priority and by Sunday job done.

I wouldn't write off the significance of the post match interviews with Kalas and Simpson. Literally telling Lansdown we need something quick

Obviously a good manager but a fall asleep voice.

He's probably tired and it must be quite a tedious time, with meeting after meeting, press etc. He's probably just itching to get on the training ground and start preparing for Saturday.

Just watched the interview and NP just fills me full of confidence that he knows what’s required to get us where we want to be

Straight talking, dry sense of humour and someone that you would run through walls for 

This may sound ridiculous but I wouldn’t put it past him to get us in the play offs this season and who knows what happens then?

not sure of the odds but may be worth a punt!

I believe you could get 250/1 before yesterday's win.

Yep, you could. Think Preston were about 125/1 despite them being on the same number of points and games as us at the time.

I could listen to him all day....thinks about his answers, even stops mid-sentence to make sure he says what he wants to say.

Me too. But then I was in the small minority who enjoyed listening to SO'D as I thought he had some interesting insights.

He’s just fantastic isn’t he. And seems so ‘in’ already, really feels like he’s committed to the club. So glad to have you here Nigel! Fantastic time to be a City fan.
