  1. He did so so at Swansea but flopped everywhere else he’s been - particularly at Leeds. His name was linked with us before Lee Johnson was appointed but the fans at BCFC were 100% against him getting the job. He’s definitely seen as a fraud.
  2. Down here in the West Country Gary Monk is seen as fraud. Decent player and good communicator but not considered to be a top manager. If any of you are pleased to have him then my guess is you be reconsidering after around 15-20 games.
  3. Holloway would a decent option for you guys. Down here in Bristol he’s loved by the Rovers fans and hated by many City fans - largely based on his comments made when celebrating promotion many many years ago. Personally I like him as a bloke and as a manager and has done a decent job pretty much everywhere he’s been. If you ever listen to TalkSport Holloway is a regular guest on there. He talks so much sense I wish he had been born in Bedminster and not Kingswood and that way he could of both played and managed Bristol City.
  4. I’m from Bristol not Brighton and am a casual visitor on here. This a a very decent forum compared to others I’ve visited. Ive not bothered to change the Owl logo or ranking underneath which I assume reflects the number of posts?
  5. Ha! Never judge a book by its cover!. However you’re quite that he does have impressive runs followed by unimpressive runs of poor results. No no doubt he’ll be looking to break that cycle this upcoming season.
  6. No way would Lee Johnson choose to leave ‘his’ club. As a former player he loves Bristol City and even if a lower PL club came for him he’d turn them down. He admits he wants to manage in the PL but ‘with Bristol City’. Add to that he lives locally, his young daughter goes to a local school and he has a property empire in one of the more elite areas of Bristol in Clifton. Plus.......he owes a debt of gratitude to our owner Steve Lansdown who refused to sack him when City were struggling in and around the drop zone two seasons ago. Since then he’s made progress in terms of league position in the two seasons since. Johnson is a deep thinker about the beautiful game and a really clever guy - far more insightful than his father was who in all fairness was a one trick pony.
  7. Yep, we got £13m for Kelly but instalments and conditions on how many games he plays ect.... The local rag, the Bristol post say that we’re interest in Joao and on our forum otib clips og him scoring against us......... He wasn’t an Owls player that particularly impressed me so don’t have much idea of what he brings but reading thru the posts on this thread I get the impression that he’s not very highly rated. That said Lee Johnson has not yet actually signed a striker but did recall Antione Semenyo from a loan at Newport late last season and introduced him to championship training and playing against decent quality defenders. He also included him in several away squads to experience how it’s done at our level although he got a start. It wouldn’t surprise me if Johnson sees him as the answer to our striker difficulties. Good news for you guys is that Johnson has lost interest in BB having signed Szmodics from Colchester who he seems to think will become Championship quality.... I see Steve Bruce has gone ‘home’ to Newcastle....shame for you. He has a decent Championship cv and would have almost certainly done a decent job with you.
  8. You'll definitely get bids. Bannan is a class act and is on the radar of several clubs looking to strengthen over the summer. Down here in Bristol it’s common knowledge that Lee Johnson is a huge Bannan admirer and couldn’t stop bigging him up after he destroyed us at your place. This summer LJ has license to bring 6 or 7 new signings and I’m pretty sure Bannan is on his shopping list...... Steve Bruce will be rebuilding your squad and will want to sign players he knows and could mean that Bannan becomes surplus to Bruce’s requirements............
  9. I vaguely remember that happening but I never like that particular show. Richard always tried to be ultra smooth and relaxed and made me instantly dislike him......... I was of course referring to Paul Madeley, who was tbf a very decent footballer.
  10. Must be an ‘in’ joke! Completely lost on me............
  11. Not all of us are a fan of BB. Some argue that at 29 he could be a little too old. Others question whether he’d fit it to the Johnson way of playing. One thing for sure is that Johnson really rates him and who knows what’s going on behind the scenes? Add to that the fact City signed Jack Hunt and BB will know him.................
  12. From outside Sheffield itself most others fans would see the two clubs as on a par with each other.
  13. We were kinda due an away defeat and in recent times Hillsborough hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for us. Not so long back we were 2 up at lost 3-2..... I remember Johnson really losing it after that ............
