Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

Regarding Gunter and GMac? It makes absolute sense to bring them back into the squad (Gomes jettisoning of them was a fair risk, but it failed). However, Baldock would be the ideal partner for Puscas if he wants to play two up front. I was not a fan of the Joao signing and haven't changed my mind. ...

Since being reappointed as chief executive in December 2018 Nigel Howe has: Sacked Paul Clement as we were starting to show some form. Taken 3 weeks to appoint Jose gomes despite him having nothing on his CV to suggest he would be a successful championship manager. Employed a remarkably scatter gun...

Re: Bowen interview

Well he came across well here a couple of months ago. But he led to the sacking of our Messiah Gomes with that amazing win percentage.... Selective use of stats there. Try PPG to get a fairer more representative view. Also how about taking account of the fact that he lost three key players at the e...

Re: Next Manager

If Bowen is appointed it's a complete and utter effing joke. The guy has been a serial failure as Assistant Manager to his mate Mark Hughes. Furthermore, as Sporting Director IMO he's every bit as much to blame for the poor start to the season as Gomes and his coaching team. He then compounds that ...

Re: Next Manager

windermereROYAL Wasn`t Eddie Niedzwiecki an assistant here before?


Yes, and IIRC he also did a short spell as caretaker manager. I think he got sent off (sent to the stands) when he was in charge as Caretaker Manager.

Re: Gomes, Should he stay or should he go? Mk2

Whatever happens, I don't think anyone can deny the job he did last season Arguably a stroke of luck that all the loanees worked out so well. Really was a last roll of the dice. Could have easily been disasterous. Stroke of luck that all the loanees worked out so well? Really?? That is pretty much ...

Re: BFTG Bristol

I think it was just rustiness on Miazga's part tbh. Must take the big portion of the blame. Not played for a while and received a whack in the chops ten minutes or so before. Richards just allowed the crosser to take his time and pick the pass as well. At first I thought the goal was down to Miazga...

Re: Gomes, Should he stay or should he go? Mk2

I think sacking the manager is both ineffective and not the sort of club I want us to be. If we can get someone with a proven track record like Hughton or Hughes then that's one thing. But I suspect we'd just get another journeyman off the merry-go-round and be in the same position in 12 months. St...

Re: local info saturday from a Bristol City fan

You're one of the most consistently present teams in the division and we've played you for about 7 seasons running - I think we all know how to get there by now. Yeah because in the last 7 years we've failed to attract even one new fan who might fancy a trip down to Bristol. Agreed. Unfair to criti...

Re: BFT ???????????????????????????????????????????

The formation won't help because the entire team is fundamentally disorganised and disjointed. You defend well by defending as a unit and squeezing the space the opposition has in your defensive third. We do none of this. Our CBs are constantly split and miles apart because we try to play our. Our ...

Re: BFT ???????????????????????????????????????????

Good luck to any management team stupid enough to come to our club and face the Dellor clones (clowns) who expect success in well less than a season, regardless of the challenges the club faces on and off the pitch! Those thinking Gomes will be gone if we lose at Bristol are deluded. Fortunately I d...

Re: Bristol City (A)

While the train goes direct to Bristol, neither Parkway nor Temple Meads is anywhere near the ground. Best option is a train to Parkway, then change to a local train service to Parson Street. From there it is a 20 minute walk or you can get the bus. If you go to Temple Meads then get a taxi from th...

Re: Bristol City (A)

So I've just paid £32 (plus £1.50) for a crap seat in N36 but I see that tickets for home supporters (non members) in the equivalent stand at the far end of the ground S24 v Wigan are just £27. How do they get away with this? I thought clubs weren't allowed to charge visiting supporters more than ho...

I didn't realise that to add insult to injury, our own club add £1.50 to the already extortionate £32, even if you collect the ticket in person from the ticket office! :twisted:

Re: CONFIRMED - Yakou Meite

I feel that tieing players to 4 or 5 years deals like Meite and Swift has very few benefits. The players motivation, hunger and standards will decrease as they know they are guaranteed to be on a big contract for years to come. The efforts of the players have been questioned for the past few season...
