Millen Leaves City

Millen Leaves City

Bristol City have parted company with manager Keith Millen after the club suffered a terrible start to the season and currently sit rock bottom in the table.

The weekend`s 5-0 defeat at Bloomfield Road at the hands of Blackpool was the final straw for the club and Millen was removed as manager.

City needed to do something about the situation as the club had just one win in ten games to show for their efforts and they have now slipped into the bottom place in the table with just six points and a goal difference of minus twelve.

Chairman Colin Sexstone said: 'I'd like to place on record my thanks to Keith for his 12 years of service at the club. He is an outstanding coach and we wish him all the very best for the future.'

Millen first joined Bristol City as a player in 1999 after his playing career came to an end he remained at the club as youth coach, then assistant and then taking over the hot seat after Steve Coppell walked out of the job last year.

There is already speculation as to who would be the man to take over and former Cardiff manager Dave Jones is a name that keeps popping up.

Well I for one am not sorry to hear this, the man was never a manager just a cheap option after Coppell who should really take the blame for the mess we are in now.

Millen should never hve been given the job and I think enough City fans said as much at the time. Nothing against the man, its just that he is no manager

You'd be hard pressed to find anyone who actually wanted him, the question is now, who takes over? Dave Jones is being tipped

At last, How long have we been requesting that??? Nice Guy but was NEVER gonna do anything for this club. I just hope that the board brings in the right replacement and NOT to cut corners.

Funny you should say that as he was the assistant at Stoke and it didn't do them any harm. He was ***** at Plymouth because Plymouth are really, really poor.

Thank god for that, i love the bloke as a person but hate him as a manager, it was for the best and im sure Keith will go on to make a decent manager in league two, which lets face it, isnt that bad! hes never going to be a championship manager again though IMO! now lets look to the future with a new manager who can actualy manage at this level! COYR.

We can't afford O'Neil and with his history he's more likely to go to Florist. Guess Dave Jones would be in our price bracket, but I'd like to see Roberto Di Matteo.
