‘Don’t like the sound of this’, ‘Good to see’ – These Bristol City fans split as report sheds light on club plans

Bristol City are reportedly no longer recruiting a director of football or head of recruitment, which appears to have split the Ashton Gate faithful. 

It looks set to be a summer of major change in Bs3, with new CEO Richard Gould replacing the departed Mark Ashton and Nigel Pearson looking to rebuild his squad.

11 senior players were released at the end of their contracts, marking an end of an era for the Robins and a clear-out that should allow Pearson a chance to make significant changes to the squad.

The Robins boss has indicated that he feels it could take up to six transfer windows to build the squad needed to push for promotion and the summer will be the start of that.

Previous reports had indicated either a director or football or head of recruitment was likely to come in to help the City boss sign players but it seems that is no longer the case.

The Bristol Post has now reported that the club are no longer recruiting for either of those roles this summer.

The report claims that Pearson and head of technical recruitment Sean Gilhespy will take charge of City’s summer transfer business, with Gould’s role not expected to be as all-encompassing as Ashton’s was.
