I'm gonna give this tosser some grief this afternoon. "I spend more than the fans" ffs

To be fair, I think that what he was trying to say was that he is unhappy about things too; I think the response wasn't quite as polished as it could have been and I don't believe he was belittling the fans. He's not always the most eloquent speaker.

65% there...brilliant so that's most of the ground still empty. 

A third of supporters haven't renewed then, that tells him something surely.

Steve just came apart like a leper in a wind tunnel. Contradictions, waffly management speak and a refusal to say anything about LJ apart from accidentally calling him the manager a bunch of times

I think you're right. 

Beneath the words though he's fundamentally in a different place the the average fan imo.

And suddenly it becomes clear why despite all the money he has invested we have made zero progress. SL is a cock. The great stand that bears his name will lie empty during our league one matches next season as an ongoing testament to his bad decisions and arrogant stubbornness. Never thought I would write this, but there it is...

Will I respect GT after that did not duck a question,

But how sad was it to hear the Lee will be here next year if we stay up, looks like relegation is the only hope for the club long term,

Never been so depressed as now after hearing that

The ray of hope was that he said LJ wasn't here regardless. 

He said "we'll review after Wolves, what happened against Preston won't happen again."

although if we stay up LJ remains. 

Tough predicament. We need to be bad enough for him to be sacked this week but good enough to stay up after that. 

5-0 Wolves.

Few observations:

Them - used frequently when referring to supporters, instead of "We".

Dynamic - had to change this by getting rid of Pemberton. Really?

Ability - why Johnson hired. Oh come on Steve!

Fair play for going on air Steve, but pull your finger out & fire Johnson.

"I pay a lot more money than the supporters" 

And there we have it. 

Lifelong support isn't as important. 

you may or may not but you completely waste most of it

Wow just wow the ****

That was a massive **** you to the fans. He was always on a hiding to nothing but that just left me gawping

I did say GT wouldn't duck it! I didn't expect it to be an annihilation

GT take a bow :clap:

If you didn't know he was a successful businessman /billionaire - you'd think GT was ramndomly interviewing some bloke walking through Cabot Circus and asked him to pretend to  impersonate a Football Club Owner

 

Sounded a bumbling fumbling complete fool

 

Frightening - his worst interview EVER IMHO

Great questions from Geoff, SL was definitely not given an easy ride. 

I actually admire SL for going on to be fair.  His support of Johnson is baffling, unfathomable even. But to be fair to him he took full responsibility for the mess we're in and he's backing his hunch. I don't actually think the 'strategy' is actually a terrible idea with the right people in place. We just have completely the wrong ones and for some god forsaken reason he can't see it.

Geoff Twentyman is class. No wonder there are some bitter Gas who call him Shithead Twentyman. One of, if not the best interview I've heard. Adam Baker, forget doing any more plz

I've come out of that with really mixed emotions.

On one hand, I'm actually surprised and mildly impressed that in this day and age there is still an owner that values the strength of his convictions and belief in a plan above medium-term poor performances. 

On the other, not for the first time, SL came across awkwardly, and probably seemed the least confident and clear on the points he was trying to make than I can immediately recall hearing before. You can tell it is getting harder and harder for him to justify the situation we are in (to himself as well as the fans probably).

Rather than appeasing anyone, this will probably just agitate most further. His 'I put more money in' and 'Macca' comments were ill-judged, but they will also be twisted somewhat to suit the agenda of his detractors further.

Ultimately, his words will no longer dissuade anyones discontent and the only thing that can save 'the plan' is for us to start getting results.

Come on the Allies!

It really was the fans fault after all, with their pittance spending on my club!

Leave Mark Ashton alone he has done a brilliant job.

Leave dynamic Lee alone too. He is the future!

GO **** YOURSELF YOU ARROGANT PIG HEADED ****!

Massive respect for GT. Top man!!! Hope the blind faithful now realise SL couldn't give a flying **** about the supporters, so do yourself a favour and vote with your feet!

The change in Geoff's tone compared to every other interview is he himself must be utterly perplexed and is feeling more than sorry for us. 

Still no word on what SL sees in LJ.

Twentyman knows his football, Lansdown DOESN'T simples
