  1. What we were looking for this season is about what Preston have achieved. Solidly mid-table with an outside chance of the play-offs and finishing say 10-14th. If LJ stays and Tammy goes I anticipate we will be in a dog-fight to stay up yet again.
  2. My point being that the players had the balls to go round the ground and clap the stands, even when some were booing. Johnson disappeared down the tunnel then gave interviews blaming the players, the ref, anyone but himself. Fed up with the bloke personally.
  3. Really? My feeling was exactly the opposite. During our horrendous run Lee would slink off the pitch and leave the players to clap the stands - sometimes to a mixed reception. He then gave interviews talking about not trusting the players. He would also whine about how he comes in early every day and puts in a shift, insinuating some players don't. Then he gets out the violin and talks about how much he loves the club. However he happily disappears straight after the whistle when the fans are unhappy. Today he is out milking the applause. Sorry my opinion is that he doesn't deserve to still be here. If I was a player I would have zero respect for a boss that acts like he has.
  4. We should never have been in this mess in the first place! We are, imo, because LJ isn't capable of getting the best out of a decent squad of players. My feeling is that the players have seen the abyss yawning before them and dug in to avoid armageddon. LJ seems to me to be the root cause of our under-performance in mid-season and I suspect the improvement is little to do with him. I would still have more confidence for next season if he went and we brought in a manager with a proven track record at this level.
  5. Can't believe that Magnusson can't get in the team above Wright. Far better footballer. Maybe we should aim to set up with 3 at the back next season as we seem to have a number of decent CBs and no decent FBs?
  6. If all the comments above were about Patterson I would agree. Personally I thought Taylor put in a shift but showed very little apart from effort. Three of us went and all said the same.
  7. I did the same when we were only 5/2 and it seems to be working
  8. I suspect part of the reason for the strength of feeling against LJ is down to the amount we have spent on players. While the football under SOD was poor he hadn't been given £15m to spend. My feeling is we are underperforming given the spend and players we have in the squad. Previous managers have struggled but had poor players and journeyman to work with. In this case it is harder to blame anyone but the head coach.
  9. Well if your definition of 'fickle' includes following the team since 1975; being able to name every player in the squad at any point over all those years; always knowing who we're playing next and, yes, looking at this site at least ten times a day nowadays - then I guess you're right. Some of you on here have a massive, smug superiority complex. And yes Robbored, I include you in that list.
  10. I stayed away for a few home games until it became obvious that SL doesn't care what the average supporter thinks. I have decided not to renew my ST due to LJ. If he gets off to the sort of start I expect he won't be around beyond Dec. So I might buy a half ST after he's got the big boot.
  11. If LJ remains in charge they are nailed on to finish above us next season.
  12. Johnson Out. Just saying. That feeling hasn't gone away regardless of better recent results.
  13. Don't know what his personality is really like due to the tabloid coverage over the years which hasn't been good. Something about him makes me think he might make a good manager though. I guess he reminds me a bit of Steve Bruce as a player so maybe that's it. Could be totally wrong though!
  14. I seem to remember our Play Off season under GJ didn't involve a high scoring striker. We were a solid team that could defend and shared goals around. I would rather get in a top coach who can organise us along those lines than rely on finding another Tammy or Kodjia. Sadly Mr Lansdown doesn't seem likely to grant that wish.
  15. Yes you may be right about us needing a striker more than another midfielder. I guess what I'm thinking is that in terms of quality; ability or just class, LF is significantly better than MT. I accept that the end product hadn't been there for a while with LF but believe a lot of that was Johnson's fault. Played him out of position and peed him right off I suspect.
