  1. "Taxi for Johnson"

    So what you're saying is you are surrounded by fans who go to support our club who want Johnson to go? Does that not just support the OP? Would like to know what gives you the right to say you are a fan but they aren't 'real fans' because they have the nerve to express their negative opinion of LJ.
  2. Writing the season off already?

    Wasn't it 2nd half at Brum that LJ brought on COD and Eliasson. Didn't seem to work too well then. I don't think we have good enough CM players to play with wingers. LJ prefers loading the centre of the pitch and using Full Backs for width - great in theory but not in reality. Our level of decent crosses is really disappointingly low. When he tried something different at brum it didn't work cuz he hasn't brought in the quality CM player(s) that would allow us to play that way.
  3. The Millwall Debacle

    Me too. I just couldn't face another run like last year's mid-season and with LJ still here was worried nothing would change. Went to the Barnsley game and was impressed and thought I had got it wrong. Now feeling relieved that I don't feel obliged to spends hours in the m5 holiday chaos coming up from devon to watch the kind of dross served up today, just because I have a ST. Got a feeling it might be a long hard season - again.
  4. The Official Match Day Thread - 4 - Bristol City v Millwall

    I'm no LJ fan but we are mid-table as it stands. I'm happy with that even though we appear to be inconsistent to put it mildly.
  5. not going to Millwall match? radio coverage is on DAB only

    Usually get them on freeview down here in devon. Maybe have to follow on otib instead today then.
  6. Tomlin

    I did think we did well to apparently get our money back for LT. Now even more so. I also have a bit more respect for LJ now we know what he had to put up with. Must have been very difficult for him.
  7. The Official Match Day Thread - 4 - Bristol City v Millwall

    According to the bbc preview we have had more shots on target against us than any other team in the championship. So we may well need to score a few to win this game. Hope BR can keep it up.
  8. Cauley Woodrow (Merged)

    Does seem to indicate that we are competing for players with the Burtons rather than Boros of this league. Maybe we need to be realistic about the probable outcome, rather than expect to compete up the top. Still have doubts that buying in from europe is giving us better value than lower league. Ollie Watkins being a good example of one compared to Engvall, Đurić, Moore etc.
  9. Official retraction of Saturday's match report

    One thing mentioned in the OP is the way we stood off their wide players and let them cross. For me this is one of the things that drove me nuts last season. It seems so easy to get crosses in against us. I hoped Pisano would help but sounds like he struggled last night. We just don't seem to protect our flanks and make it far too easy for crosses to come pinging in, which puts the CBs constantly under pressure. Maybe one reason why AF is always so conspicuous in our performances.
  10. Official retraction of Saturday's match report

    Yes we have a lot of average players and that is because we will/can only pay average wages. It relies on us spotting young players who will develop into above average players. Jury is definitely out on whether we have the ability to do that.
  11. Bloody fantastic point!

    So the obvious question is why did we play with two in the middle....did he put another in there when it wasn't working? Someone at the match said he did - in which case he has done what he could. RB commentator constantly talked about two banks of four which suggests he didn't. Although I don't put much store in what they have to say. Maybe we need to live with Fortress AG and scrape the odd away point. That would be progress of sorts on last season.
  12. The official Brentford FC v Bristol City FC match day thread

    Got a feeling we might do pretty well at home this season. LJ needs to find a better formula away though.
  13. The official Brentford FC v Bristol City FC match day thread

    So why has he bought a winger and said we may be after a striker. No mention of central midfield. We bought GON and Hegeler but they appear not to be the answer.
  14. The official Brentford FC v Bristol City FC match day thread

    RB commentator 'what city clearly need is a striker to hold the ball up front'. Lee leaves Bobby up front on his own.

    OK thanks for the update. I'm not there but presumably you are?
