  1. SC&T/FAN/Supporters meeting

    Nothing changes then. Do they realise that most people would be paid on Friday March 30th??
  2. This is it today.

    I have a strange feeling LJ will try some strange formation with either Brownhill as RWB or Smith RB, even thou Pisano should be able to handle 60-75min and Kelly should be trusted to play. Either that or we could see Baldwin or even Hegeler come in at CB and push Maggers to left back. Even thou theoretically I don’t see an issue with (left to right) Kelly, Magnussen, Wright and Pisano against Burton.
  3. Good to see another ‘unbiased’ opinion that Maggers played decently despite his part in 1st goal. There are some who too quickly accuse ‘scape goat’ players of being crap when certain favourites like Bryan get away with poor games too often
  4. Preston as always were a solid, hard working, well organised team. Not an overly attacking minded one but lots of technically good players who know the system well and play to that. These are the teams we notoriously struggle against because the defend in numbers and don’t allow much space, and tend to make use of good set pieces. LJ needs to have a plan B for these teams as too many times this season we have dropped points not being able to adapt to the game. I’m feeling better than last night that’s for sure.....

    All players make mistakes and don’t forget how we all thought Flint was bad when he first joined. Defenders will always be punished for mistakes, but I do believe there is a good footballer there if we can install a tougher mentality and improve his decision making. A run in the team will help and he will get that now

    I was waiting for Magnússon out brigade to start. Ball comes over, he dosnt believe Frankie will make it (no idea why he decided to come that far out?!) so decides to try clear but mis kicks and they score - bad mistake but not the worst performance tonight and generally been better recently. But obviously we need a scape goat for tonight, and you can’t possibly berate Smith and Bryan for not clearing the ball for 2nd goal, or Flint for stupidly getting sent off...:
  7. As others have said, after playing a game on Saturday I can never understand why Johnson is so against making subs. Those players must be itching to get on the field to make a difference, but his refusal to take Smith, Pack or Brownhill off every game means it’s the same options so players like Elliasson will only get a chance due to injuries. We had patches of good play tonight and play better football than Preston, but we didn’t test goalie enough, they were more ‘game smart’ and that’s the end of our playoff challenge. It’s easy to beat teams like Sheff Weds but these are the games we need to get a result and we didn’t.
  8. LJ - You need to be careful

    Regardless of any ‘credit’ Johnson may be in, of any cup excitement and current league position, we are in poor form with only 2 wins in last 12 and only 2 shots on target in last 2 games so can only see us dropping out of the playoffs eventually. The even more worrying thing for me is that LJ is starting to tinker again too much with players, formations & tactics and is losing our ‘identity’ we fought so hard to achieve in first half of season.
  9. The Leeds United v Bristol City Match Day Thread 32

    I don’t think we actually played that well all game, 2 goals from Leeds being poor at the back yes but despite that we didn’t really have many other clear chances and too many poor final balls. At 2-0 up we looked reasonably comfortable but it looked like there was no real game plan and more just trying to keep ball and try control the game, but again it didn’t work! Last week and tonight’s performance/result is exactly why we won’t stay in the playoffs
  10. You could see it coming.

    This week and last week is the reason we won’t stay in playoffs. We still lack that experience/and or extra quality to see games out, game management is something you learn over time and we still have a young team. O’Neil could be handy rest of season for that reason
  11. I know a lot of people like Ryan Kent

    Poor decision making at times, but probably needs more games to be aware of our players strengths. But technically looks very good and a good addition to side! It wasn’t just him who made some poor final balls today....
  12. Diedhiou song

    To the tune of “Agaaaaa-do-do-do” “Aaaa-Diedhiou-hiou-hiou Pass pineapple diony”
  13. Maggers..........(Merged)

    I said earlier in the game that I understood why Johnson had brought Smith back to right back.... he simply dosnt trust Maggers at CB, and now he must be wondering if he can trust him at all. Expect him to come off for Diedhiou with Bryan going LB and Patto going left mid
  14. Favourite ' mistress ' clubs

    Juventus! Football Italia was my fave programme at the time, I loved their kit and the front three of Ravanelli, Vialli and some young kid called Del Piers was amazing to watch. I’m going to watch them for first time in Feb and I can’t wait, Away at Fiorentina is a huge game, just a shame that Buffon is injured so I won’t see him before he retires
  15. Bobby Reid, you are simply sensational

    I’m more than happy to eat Humble Pie and say I’m sorry Bobby, I was one of those who questioned him scoring goals this season (even after his bright start) and before this season never really thought he was anything special. His improvement has just been phenomenal, he’s not the biggest striker but very clever in tight situations and generally looks to hold up ball using quick floor control before bringing others into the game. His shooting technique (watch how he hits the ball much better) and accuracy is still improving, but like most have said it’s his work rate and tenancity which really makes him shine. It’s interesting that potentially he’s better playing the furthest forward rather than behind the striker role, so LJ has decisions when Diedhiou and Djruric come back.
