Sean o'Driscoll's getting things right at Bristol City Football Club
WITH regard the letter from T E Tony (Feb 27).
T E Tony suggests that Sean O'Driscoll should take The Post to make himself aware that Bristol City are bottom of the league and going down.
Although I believe that City have a fighting chance of staying up, I do concede that we may well be relegated from the second tier of English football.
If we are relegated from a league full of ex-Premiership teams with parachute money and teams with billionaire foreign owners, I would be gutted but do not feel it would be embarrassing.

Talking of embarrassing T E Tony, maybe you should worry about your own team.
I suggest T E Tony, that we worry about our team and you worry about yours.
Oh, and PS, 'mind the gap'.
E E Ken
May I reply to two of the letters published on February 27.
Firstly in response to D Williams (rugby will ruin playing surface).
If he had followed the many articles that have been published in The Post on the new City stadium, whether it be a revamped Ashton Gate or the new Ashton Vale, he would have seen that the new playing surface that will be laid is "light years" away from the existing surface at the Memorial Stadium.
The latter was laid for football and whilst it has been tinkered with over the years it is not a multi sport surface.
The City pitch will be comparable to those at Swansea, Reading and Watford.
There a good quality of football is played on a surface that also is home to top class rugby.
T E Tony takes Sean O'Driscoll to task over his statement "he doesn't know where City are in the league".
Sean is an intelligent man and of course he knows where City are, as his brief when he arrived was to maintain Championship football.
Being a successful football coach is not only about techniques and playing plans, but also about getting inside of the players' minds, and that I would suggest is what his comment was all about.
Having seen the home games since his arrival and compared it with the 4-0 capitulation to Leicester, I would suggest that whatever Sean is doing he is doing it right.
It was interesting to witness the chants from the supporters of the previous club that he managed when they were recently at Ashton Gate, "there's only one Sean O'Driscoll".
He may not end up saving us from relegation but the current situation looks far more positive than it was a month ago.
