The 48-year-old was appointed as the replacement for Richard O'Kelly on Monday and is looking forward to working with Sean O'Driscoll as the Ashton Gate side look to bounce back to the Championship at the first attempt in 2013/14.

"The vision of the club was a big factor for me," he told City's official website. "It's a chance to start something new at a big club, as we did at Forest.

"Somewhere along the line Bristol City have lost their way a bit, but there's no point in pointing fingers about what's gone before - it's about staying positive and looking forwards.

"I've known Sean a long time and have a way of working that I think works. I've spoken to the board and if I didn't think they were serious about what they wanted to do I wouldn't be here.

"Hopefully we can push on and have a successful season because that's what everybody wants."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
