New City boss Steve Coppell has stated his burning ambition to cut the mustard in the Premiership was behind his decision to take the City job.
Coppell started work on Monday after leaving Reading this time last year and the 54-year-old scouser revealed why he chose us.
"There are very few jobs for English managers in the Premiership and I could have waited and ended up with nothing," Coppell told the Bristol Evening Post.
"I'm a pragmatist and I've always maintained my best chance to manage in the Premier League is to take a Championship club and win promotion.
"I was fortunate enough to do that with Palace and Reading and now I want to try and do the same with Bristol City.
"The Premier League is the only place to be. It's the elite and every manager is known throughout the world," he continued.
"I've been there before and I really enjoyed the challenge. I'm still hungry and ambitious and I want to be a Premier League manager again.
"The approach from Bristol City made me realise that. It made me nervous and excited and that's when I knew it was the right job for me."
Meanwhile, City have announced two pre-season games at Exeter (Mon 26 July) and Yeovil (Weds 28 July).
