Why City haven't missed the boat on big money signings

My latest blog is now up on the Bristol Post website, the link is here: http://www.bristolpost.co.uk/BRISTOL-CITY-BLOG-Robins-speculate-accumulate/story-27673657-detail/story.html

In it I offer my views on the recent big money bids, and reflect upon many of the fans reactions to those huge offers and look at some of the reasons the bids were made when they were, and not earlier.

Views, comments and shares as welcome as ever!

NEW Bristol Post blog: Who knew the Championship would be tougher?!

"So there you have it. 

After wins galore, unbeaten runs, two trophies and 99 points, the Championship is going to be just a little bit tougher....."


Wes Burns, Frankie Fielding and defending set-pieces all a part of my Bristol Post contribution to this week's blog, following the first league game of the season.

Let's be excited, not concerned!

Ahead of the new season, Lee Molland www.twitter.com/Molls28 has written a short-pre-season opinion and issues a rallying call, reminding us all of why we should be so excited about this new season and new adventure


"We’re now hours away from the start of the Championship season, and for the first time since his perhaps slightly controversial arrival, Steve Cotterill has City fans split.

Not because of results (nobody could doubt that incredible record he has) but due to the lack of transfer activity. Although, let's not forget that we have spent £2.1 million on Jonathan Kodjia. I broke my own rule of getting excited over a YouTube clip! It looks like the boy can get behind defences, but more importantly, finish.

Pre-season has been full of speculation over incomings to Ashton Gate, but as time has ticked on, only Kodjia has arrived. Some fans are nervous, some relaxed, some even angry. 

Me? I’m backing whatever Mr Cotterill perceives as the right decision for our club.

I mean, I don’t know how you couldn’t? The way he has transformed our club is something I am hugely thankful for. With results clearly speaking for themselves, I’m proud to have a manager at the helm who will trust the winning squad he got promoted with and not risk the financial backdrop of our club for somebody who doesn’t fit the clubs philosophy.

Let’s be excited!

On the pitch, let’s be excited about our goal threat……Aden Flint!! Let’s look forward to seeing Korey Smith dictate the pace of games and Luke Freeman terrorise opposing defences. Let’s see Joe ‘one of our own’ Bryan make a name for himself in the big league. To keep those players is a real coup for Bristol City Football Club.

Let’s see the camaraderie and work rate that has been the back bone of our success continue to be at the heart of our club. 

Winning is a habit, after all"
