  1. Oh look who’s here to stir it up . Pathetic, he’s having a laugh. Get a grip
  2. Wiemann isn’t playing up top with fam. Looks more of a 4231 with pato in the ten role and our movement looked better for a couple of minutes . Then it just died off
  3. We’ve played completely differently each season for the last three, so how is that a identity ?
  4. Very true. It’s also , what you do with that net spend. That’s where a lot of the criticism comes from my point of view. Seems a scattergun approach to signings in terms of positions to fit a system etc . That’s not just criticism of LJ but MA JL and SL
  5. **** me. I’m struggling to see this season out at this rate
  6. Well if you're going that way with it . It would have to be the 1982 Adidas tango . The sexiest football ever made.
  7. Quite a few saying winning football. Yes we all want that, but in reality only the likes of Liverpool , Man City etc have winning football. i want us to have something sustainable. I want opposition fans to say oh Bristol City , they play some lovely stuff as people do about Brentford , Swansea , Brighton , Bournemouth . A academy that plays the same as well and for it to become a proper identity ( not LJ’s version whatever that is ) Yes we want to get promoted but , let’s be honest , you don’t do that with a disjointed squad and team set up. If someone said. We’ll set up a philosophy as mentioned above but it’ll take a couple of seasons to implement and realistically you won’t be looking at promotion for at least 5 years , I’d happily take that . I want our football to be something to be proud of.
  8. Agree, but you have to put it back at SL. its all very well with, “we’re all aligned” “ singing from the same hymn sheet” blah blah blah .Everyone is grateful for the money he’s pumped in and he's obviously a brilliant businessman . However , I do think that SL doesn’t understand football. He’s wasted millions . Where was the philosophy that was supposed to be put into place. Bournemouth, Swansea , Brentford , all clubs of similar size have a way of playing from top to bottom. Players playing in the u23’s that understand how the first team play and if good enough can slot in seamlessly . buying players that fit that system and a scouting system that targets specific players to fit that philosophy . What have we got ? Signing wingers when we didn’t play with wingers or number 10’s when we don’t play anyone in the hole. Rudderless , and that comes from the top . He imo needs mark Ashton to do his ******* job which is negotiate contracts , nothing more, no input in transfers or managerial appointments and seek some advice from a very experienced football man on how to run the football side. Because if his dream is to get promoted before he pops his clogs , he’s got no chance as things stand.
  9. You’re not overly gutted. Fair enough. If you forget about the embarrassing fact we couldn’t beat a midtable third division team over two legs. Let’s look at the bigger picture. We were terrible for over a hour on Saturday and scored against the run of play . We've been on yet another terrible run, with poor tactical decisions , baffling substitution and a squad of players that look lost. No identity at the club. I keep banging on about it , but constantly chopping and changing the team and formation. Nearly 4 years in charge and we’re going backwards
  10. Does anyone have faith in him sticking to it though. I don’t . He loves change for changes sake. Hope I’m wrong
  11. Very welcome win today , but we’re way off being play off challengers as things stand. Points would suggest otherwise but quality wise we’re not good enough. If and it’s a big IF LJ can play a consistent formation with 3/ more compact central midfielder as we did second half and add a decent striker , hopefully it might change.
  12. Makes a big difference that extra body in midfield with and without the ball. I’d be very happy to play 1up top if we could get the right striker in.
