Funny how all the talk of Mark Ashton's influence 16:11 - Jan 10 with 3912 viewsThe_Flashing_Smile

has gone quiet. Even the Bristol City fan who keeps popping up has disappeared, unless I've missed him. Not to mention the scrutiny of the coaching staff. Almost as if when you're winning this 'analysis' gets forgotten.

Not having a pop at anyone, it's great that none of this is being discussed. Long may it continue (because that means we're still doing well).

Trust the process. Trust Phil.

It's utterly tragic that a few randoms from a no mark club like Bristol City can come on here and so easily poison the minds of people who couldn't post one factual thing he had actually done wrong.

What are you talking about? We're ten days into the window, haven't signed anyone, our best GK is being recalled and the whole thing's a fecking shambles. Ashton out.

For goodness sake don’t mention the fixated Bristol weird - he will scuttle back on here soon enough I’ve no doubt.

You are right though - it’s great that coaches discussion, ‘analysis’ etc isn’t being talked about at the moment.

Mullet Gtsb Blue badger Bloots N2 Blue ITFC Joe …and the rest. Do you not understand that these forums have massive sway these days? You’ve killed it. We may go on to bigger better things, who knows? Your bitching and whining on here is picked up and has a massive ripple effect. Fking knobs the lot of you. For weeks you’ve been stamping your feet like little girls and it gets picked up when all you needed to do was ride it out for a bit. Pathetic. Cook always comes good, he always has done, talk to any Pompey, Wigan or Chesterfield fan. I’m in Pompey tonight and they’re all shaking their heads. Dkheads the lot of you. Happy to get banned on the back of this. You’re ridiculous. The ramifications are massive which may be placated with money but fk me; learn to kick a ball and know what you’re talking about before you lash out in anger. A massive shame and a massive shame on you. Cook is working hard. What are you doing other than idly pointing fingers and drawing on nonsense stats. Nothing but contempt for you lot and your baseless insights into football when you’ve never even kicked a ball.

Your forum asked for someone to come on and explain why our fanbase felt the way we did. I did that.

If you read my posts, you’ll find a lot of history, facts, mixed with some opinion.

I’ve not actually painted him as the devil, but some if your posters decided that because I didn’t paint him as the messiah either, that I must be jealous or a entitled or don’t like a bloke because he wears a suit (haha, what a joke accusation, I work in the Corporate world). I’ve explained that blame for our mess is not down to one person, but responsibility / accountability does feature in a CEO’s role spec.

It’s funny that you get a couple of results and decide that Ashton should take some credit, but when the previous manager loses a couple, Ashton cannot play a part in the culpability.

Talk about hypocrisy!

Hey-ho.

Went to a Bristol Rovers Wembley game against Grimsby a few years ago (a friend follows Grimsby and it was a play off or FA Trophy game). We shared a drink or two with the Rovers supporters. A nice lot. They call Bristol City ‘Teds’. A much nicer name than the Sheffield clubs who call each other Pigs. Cute thought I. Then somebody told us the full version…..

No offence to Bristol but they haven't been in the top flight for a considerably longer time than even us and seem to be in just about their best shape since whenever that was?

They've moved on a lot and Ashton was part of that, whether they like it or not, from an outsider looking in he helped progress them

They also forget what proceeded him, the likes of Clegg who was certainly not a football man
