  1. Just looking again at last night’s match thread and the en-mass overreaction to the performance, “Johnson out” calls and generally ridiculous statements about how terrible we are and how we’ll never achieve anything. I’ll start by saying I agree about the performance. While I don’t believe we should assume to best anyone in this division - especially this division! - we should of course have seen the game out. We played poorly throughout and our game management was poor. But I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - some people really need to find some perspective on where we are a

  2. The curious case of promotion chasing Bristol City and their injury hit descent into rank average Championship also rans lurched on to a third consecutive - and perhaps worst - weekend failure, this time blowing a 2-0 lead at lively but ultimately very limited bottom club Barnsley, the latest of 2-2 Oakwell draws in many ways a far more embarrassing result than the recent 3-0 capitulation at Luton Town as Lee Johnson's men wrote off their promotion chances on live TV. Since the international break - often an achilles heel for City - the quiet assault on promotion has resembled more of a p

  4. He gets slated on here but I’m going to be honest. If he plays, we win tonight. Watkins did alright but the holdup play and extra big man in the box defending corners would have been the difference. When he doesn’t play, we miss him. When he comes back from suspension, we need to stop making him the scapegoat for all our problems because as we’ve seen tonight and against Wigan, he is clearly not the problem.

  5. Haven't read the match day thread since the result. I can guess the reactions. I agree with what you've said. We are improving every season, both on and off the field. My biggest concern...is we've fallen into that trap of becoming a 'typical' Championship side. We've consolidated...but we now play like the majority of teams in this division. Talk of 'Identity'...we no longer have one. Pundits and other fans used to purr about our type of football. As the pundits implied last night...we now grind out results against the run of play. You can blame injuries...I get

  8. I know this isn’t football, but the traffic on the football page is probably ten times that of the non football section. Given the magnitude of this mornings game, I put forward the suggestion that we have a rugby thread on the football side. It’s the World Cup final and gives us all a chance to bounce back from last night. Come on England!

  9. Cannot believe that this old chestnut is still going......why can't people accept the opinion of coaches who saw him in training for over 40 weeks, he scored for Peterboro against Blackpool and will continie to score goals at a level that is below ours.......he gets more space and time in the lower leagues, good luck to him, but people who know a lot more about football than forum posters decided that he wasn't up to standard..........just move on.

  11. I thought Eisa looked better in his 22 minutes than Semeyo has in his God knows how many, and the last time Rodri played for us he didn't touch the ball. He was most prolific in the Spanish third tier incidentally. So, the decision to release Eisa at this present time, looks like a mistake to me. The decision to loan out Taylor likewise.

  12. If he wouldn't get on our bench behind Antoine "no touches" Semeyo and the released-by-his-last-club Rodri, that would say more about Lee's judgement than it would say about Eisa's ability. He got 25 minutes of game time with us. Written off wayyyy too early.

  16. Talk about delusional............... "People say the league table tells the truth, it's not. It's lying at the minute. "We have had chances to score goals, we have missed opportunities, we have had referee's decisions not go in our favour." Yeah, right, we believe you!

  17. The most ITK poster on our forum has said that Neil was subject to an illegal approach from Stoke and then promptly proceeded to report it to PNE. This together with fabricated, fake news stories being leaked to the press this afternoon stating Neil was 'set to be announced' as Stoke manager has angered PNE and as the statement says, lead to them stating that they'll now do no business with Stoke on this matter under any circumstances. Glad they've put their foot down to be honest because this sort of thing with false press reports swirling around happened last season before WBA away

  20. You sensed that South Africa had the game won in the first 10 minutes when they dominated the scrum. Was it England starting too slowly or South Africa starting more aggressively. Probably a mixture of both. too many errors from England, though probably caused by the pressure South Africa put them under.

  22. Yes Eisa and Taylor scored again today. Taylor in particular is, I believe, infinitely better than Semenyo and I’ve seen nothing in Rodri to think him a better option than Taylor.

  23. Imagine genuinely thinking he wasn’t up to the level based on seeing him for about 18 minutes of league football. Just hope we have a big sell on because he will go for huge money to a champ club

  25. I'd hope for Weimann not Diedhiou up front. Clearly the service needs to improve whoever it is. The key though for me, lies in midfield. A lack of correct combinations both isolates the striker(s) and makes the defence more vulnerable. Our hands are tied with injuries etc but despite this, I wonder about the wisdom of selling Pack, and loaning out both Walsh and Morrell...one of them should've been kept for depth and cover IMO.

  26. The problem is that LJ isnt learning. His formations and decisions are muddled every game. Taking Moore off last night was stupid how many managers swap CB's in a game when they arent injured?

  27. The one thing that I dislike in the modern game is the chopping and changing of the starting eleven which means that you have a collection of individuals instead of one unit , a TEAM. Now, I understand the reasons given but it makes the game less attractive to watch without the sort of telepathic relations that existed before. This is often a reason why we have cup upsets because the poorer clubs don’t have the luxury of revolving their first team and the lads know each other’s game so much better than a large group of talented individuals.

  31. Sorry but I don't agree with the Pack comment, though I obviously agreed with the first point you make! For me the 4 million was superb business for Pack. We want more mobility in our midfield to compensate for having 2 up front, so I completely get what LJ was doing there.

  32. When Fam was banned for 6 games we played AW as a solo striker and he scored 5 goals. When Fam returned we moved him wide and he was wasted. This season, he's scored more than Fam. However @Davefevs is quite right. The issues we have really are in the centre of midfield.

  35. No no, the only people thinking we are supposed/going to stroll into the play offs are the ones so angry/delighted we gave up the lead yesterday and now saying LJ needs to go. The people who are 'wearing rose tinted glasses' are the ones saying calm down, we're missing 6/7 first team players from injury and we are still in the play off positions - worst case still top half if all results go against us today.

  36. Maybe having let in a soft header from a corner LJ wanted Baker on for extra height in the set pieces. It certainly didn't work out. I'm tired though of him taking off Moore even when he is having a good game.

  37. Fair comments Spud. Certainly not saying there aren’t issues and I agree that a lack of definitive playing style is one of them. My hope is that a more settled side with less square pegs in round holes might allow that to emerge. Just feels like we’re having to get by as best we can at the moment.

  38. well said...I was also cringing after that dire, so, so predictable collapse so much so that I called for Johnson to go...giving all the virtue-signalling members of the LJ glee-club the chance they were looking for! Haha. ...on reflection do I think he should?...well he's not going so it's an academic question. However I don't think he's good enough. Yet. Maybe never. I've been a manager of large teams of creative people expected to deliver week in and week out. I've done all the talk LJ does about no excuses and no off-days. All that talk means nothing if you can't get your teams

  45. ...but why, however disproportionate it might be considered, would I be getting abuse? I'm frustrated. Wouldn't all City fans be frustrated? Three matches against beatable sides and we get two draws and a 98th minute, and rather fortunate, win. I'm afraid I don't rate Lee Johnson. He's never achieved a promotion as a manager. I consider him a perfectly nice man but a bit of a golden child...and very lucky to have had the career he has. As a manager his sides look fragile. He goes on long losing streaks. I'm happy for others to think otherwise...but I don't rate him. I'm sorry if it's inc
