Ashton 14:26 - Dec 6 with 3620 viewsJ2BLUE

If you put aside all the stuff Bristol City fans have said that our fans now parrot back as if they have some sort of inside info like he loves the spotlight etc can anyone actually name one thing he has done wrong so far?

Sometimes I wonder if some people actually care about the club at all with how willing they are to believe every little piece of gossip.

Name one thing he's done wrong in his time here.

As you have said in another thread, this is a mile ahead of anything we have seen under the previous owner! I think he has played the situation really well and I don't believe a word he says that McGreal wasn't the contingency!

It was good to hear him give the reassurance of an external appointment and if as he says, they board have been discussing this for a while, I am certain they will already have targets, and if the summer transfer window was anything to go by, they will be confident on landing them!

I'm not going to say anything negative, rather that I was very impressed with how he went about transfers during the summer window. How he managed to get value out of some of our old squad was quite something. Under the previous regime, we'd have got diddly squit.

Difficult one to answer, given nobody has much insight as to what he does do and how effectively he does it, good or bad.

Agree entirely about Bristol City fans, as exactly the same applies to them, and no doubt he was an easy target. We had the same last season, L O'N got all manner of abuse on here, largely I would wager from people who don't have the first clue about his contribution.

He's not the manager.

I also said name one thing he has done wrong so far. We can only judge him on what he has done. Maybe in time he will be a disaster but he doesn't deserve the stick he's getting.

I've got this horrible feeling his first mistake will be the appointment of the new manager.

Of course, I agree he shouldn’t be given stick for what he has or hasn’t done. Mainly because I don’t really know what any of that is.

I think his role has been needed so If he gets the most out of his staff and delivers on his responsibilities I’m guessing we should be fine.

So nothing then? His managerial appointment might be a disaster but if we stick to facts right now he hasn't actually done anything wrong. Agreed?

He wore a Peaky Blinders fancy dress costume at the match Brett Johnson attended.

That’s pretty fcking wrong in my opinion.

I was a little uncomfortable with the Lincoln celebration thing - he should have kept that to the Directors Box or somewhere else. But in all seriousness, no I can’t. I think that for the most part in his six months here he’s filled in a lot of the holes in the club left by Evans.

I may not agree with all his decisions but he seems pretty clear on what he is trying to do and I can live with that - as long as he lets the manager manage the team and sticks within the structure the club is building.

As for the Bristol City lobotomised brigade, I couldn’t care a less what their view is. He’s not there now and should be judged on what he does here. I would add that the Bristol local reporters’ views were at odds, to an extent, with their forums.

One thing he’s got wrong….in the summer he said Paul Cook would’ve been his first choice. Just sacked him! Bad judge of a manager? Yes, that’s me being facetious. I suspect he was lying don’t you? So if he will lie to you on that…..

He was hardly going to say anything else was he! What was he meant to do, throw the new manager under the bus?

The itching stops after the first week or two (unless you aren't washing it).
