MetiNews.Com - All the breaking news, comment, gossip and analysis from BS3 as Nigel Pearson begins his Robins rebuilding job
Breaking News ! Hello and welcome to Sunday's live blog with a feeling that 2020/21 is firmly in the rear view mirror now following the publication of Bristol City's retained list on Sunday. Eleven first-team players will be leaving the club which constitutes a huge chunk of the squad that played under Dean Holden and Nigel Pearson last season, also factoring in loanees Alfie Mawson and Steven Sessegnon who have returned to Fulham. It means Nigel Pearson, as he's wanted, has a major rebuilding job on his hands in BS3, changing the culture of the club and bringing in, quite possibly, double figures in terms of new additions. Andi Weimann and Danny Simpson also remain in negotiations over their prospective new deals, meaning there's no guarantees there'll stay.
