Pat Lam interview

Just watched the Pat Lam interview on Briz TV got to say he is comes across as the type of guy that Bristol rugby has been missing for far too long. Really got to start this season off I'm now getting very impatient. Yes there's the British and Irish Lions and the All Blacks but then there is Bristol Rugby and Pat Lam.

given the hype that has arisen from Pats appointment I just hope he lives up to our hopes and expectations , just imagine the reaction from some on here if things go a bit wobbly .
That said I am sure he is the right man for the job and it will be clear by Christmas if not mathematically certain that we will be promoted back to the Prem .

Sounds good.

That purple kit isn't pleasant though.

Think it would be a bit easier on the optic nerves if it didn't have the hideous writing on the front.

I love the mans style but it willl be interesting to see how his vision and methods impacts on the players, particularly those who were signed up under previous regimes.

those who wouldn't prosper under Lam would no doubt have been identified and let go, I suspect

We obviously only see one side of the man but what is clear is his personality is the complete opposite to AR. It looks to me that he encourages players rather than beating them with the big stick. But that said there will be times a hard edge will be necessary. He ones across as being clear and precise in what he wants the Bristol to achieve and if he can bring that out in the players and the club which I believe he can then we are in for some interesting times. He's already done more in the short time he has been here to engage with the fans than AR ever did. His friendly approachable nature has to be good for the club as a whole.
That said we need to give the man time to clear up the mess he walked into. He needs the backing and full support of the club and Bristol sport if he is to succeed.

Olly, not sure I agree with your opinions of A Robinson in the above post but agree Lam appears to be settling in okay. It's very early yet and we have no real way to gauge his impact so far.

Wasn't meant to be a criticism but rather an observation. Nor do I hold AR totally responsible for the mess we found ourselves in as those above him must also shoulder some of the blame. But my first impressions of Pat Lam are that he is very approachable guy.Willing to give much more time to the media. Is a good communicator, wants to put Bristol back into the community. A focused individual with s clear vision of what he wants Bristol to achieve. In not saying AR didn't want any of that but more the way he went about achieving it being very different.

The vision Pat Lam has set out is virtually identical to that of every other head coach we have had since Bob Dwyer. You could swap almost word for word interviews from Liam Middleton or, yes, Andy Robinson into things Lam has said and not tell the difference. It isn't the vision that is the problem, it's the execution.

Now I found AR to be perfectly approachable and a real rugby enthusiast but I'm aware that many people base their opinion on the fact he has a face for radio. Lam may be more personable but let's see what he achieves with what looks like even greater resources than were made available to AR. And, when we have achieved promotion at the first time of asking, he actually manages to keep us in the Premiership for more than one season.

Robbo held a very good fans forum in his early days here up at the Mem, and said he wanted to do so regularly, came across very well and approachable. Don't know why that never really happened, which seemed to lead to the gap widening between him and the fans.

I think in my time here Hilly was the best coach at interaction with the fans until late in his reign. Given the state of the club then I think he always had more good will from the fans, and less money to spend, than Robbo in his time, despite both being die hard Barfers.

Yes at that event Robbo said he wanted to make it a regular thing, but apart from the event before the 2015 playoffs up at Cleve, all we got was an annual pre-season talk at Clifton. The end of season dinner was last held in 2015, and now replaced with an annual Bristol Sport event for their sponsors only.

Tainton's talk for the Bris Trust was good, but poorly attended.

Whatever Lam does (as I'm sure he will) is going to be an improvement on the slim pickings we get at the moment. Will be interesting to see the turnout at the BBC radio Bristol event at Ashton Gate with Lam on the 31st July

I've already reserved two tickets for this, looking forward to it, hoping they'll secure some more decent guests.
