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"
