  1. I’ve got tickets for a Group D game at Wembley. Friday 19 June game, so do I have a 2 in 3 chance of watching England? Booked a hotel already. £45 with parking! Not expecting the Ritz, but walking distance to the stadium and somewhere to pass out after a night out in the big smoke!
  2. Does anyone know the last day the shop was open for business?

    Love Flinty, anyone who thinks he was irreplaceable as a defender has never played. I do remember his goals, I remember the goal clearances, loved the headed one at the Etihad etc... But, as others have said Webby and Kalas are in a totally different league, Flint has grafted hard, improved and to a degree excelled, but the two we have now are naturally blessed. Great scouting and negotiation to get W&K here. The big question for me is if I were Lee and I had a budget of £10-15 in the summer would I spend the majority of it on Kalas or spend it elsewhere. I think I’d be investing my money at the other end and let our skipper play on the right side.
  4. Not sure what the confusion is here, of the current Championship clubs only Neil Harris has held his job longer than Johnson. Since the Johnson tenure began only two other managers who have been in this league at the same time as ‘Lee Johnson’s Bristol City’ and crossed our path are ‘Chris Hughton’s Brighton’ and ‘Nigel Clough’s Burton’. Johnson is the second longest serving current Championship manager since February 2016, if you were to include managers still with their clubs since his arrival he is fourth. He is either second longest serving of 24, if you only include the 24 clubs in the seasons Championship at present or fourth out of 30(?) clubs to include those promoted or relegated since February 2016, either way kudos to Lee as we’re in a better position than we were at the time of his appointment, SL for not pulling the trigger when he’s had justifiable opportunity and BCFC in general. Either way his relatively long tenure is indicative of steady improvement on the pitch as well as a patient owner who unlike many on here sees the big picture and isn’t prone to knee jerk misjudgments. The steady improvement on the pitch and pragmatic approach of our owner/key decision maker are things we should be proud of. Of course some won’t see it that way, fortunately those undiscerning voices are reducing in number and volume.
  5. No need for this. These sort of smug posts only serve to wind each other up, no good can come from them. If anything those who are in the Johnson out group may feel their views becoming even more entrenched because of WUMs like you. We’re all pro City, at the moment I am in the Johnson in camp and have been consistently, however I’m sure a day will come when it is time for him to go and I reserve the right to change my opinion. Grow up and pipe down.
  6. I’m not precious, I’m not your buddy either. 8 unbeaten is not a fluke, we have a mean defence, players like Kalas, Webster and Niki, all signed by Lee are the reason for that. Hopefully in 2019 you’ll be able to leave your armchair and enjoy watching us live, it’s much better than on your laptop/tv, it would also validate your opinion, as currently it’s hard to take it seriously as you don’t watch and openly admit to being bias against Lee. You are obviously entitled to an opinion, I just don’t think it’s as worthy as that of someone who views our team objectively (without an anti LJ agenda) and who chooses to support the team in person.
  7. You may have seen the consistency in performance if you attended games. I’m not sure what you were expecting Fordy, but I’m not an entitled fan who believes we belong in the top 10 of this tough division. We’re the only club in the top two thirds who’ve not played in the premiership. Our budget is nothing compared to today’s opponents. As a ‘fan’ who doesn’t watch/support the team and has an open dislike for our manager maybe it’s time you look for another hobby or just pipe down?

  9. I hope you’re right Kev, sadly though I fear you’re not. There are certain people on here who will refuse to look at Lee in a positive light, we could win 10 on the bounce, but if we lost the 11th they’d be out in force. Their belief that our current manager is not fit for purpose is so entrenched that if we managed playoffs it wouldn’t be good enough, despite the fact that we are a relatively small club at this level competing with some big clubs and many other clubs who receive parachute payments. I’m an infrequent, but hopefully realistic poster, I didn’t lose my head like some when we went on a small losing run, I won’t get carried away if we go on a winning run either. I think a place in the top 10 is great, especially when you look at wages bills of some of the clubs below. I don’t feel the negativity has dispersed, but the negative posters have conveniently/temporarily, at least until we lose again. I can think of one poster in particular who since joining has made double figure plus posts per day, but since our back to back wins has been super quiet. Is there anyway of checking how busy the forum is after a win vs after a loss? I know after Man Utd last season was busy, but generally I get the impression that this place is busier after a bad result than a good one. Some people can’t take the rough with the smooth I suppose and prefer to be angry/unhappy.
  10. In the last few I agree, think we should’ve taken the game to Rotherham tonight and at Wigan. However, as a mid table club any point on the road has to be a good one, although I do feel for those who travelled. The point at home against a team with the talent the experienced, proven Bruce had at his disposal was also good. Our players and their decision making needs to improve, that’s down to them and the coaches, we now have a greater competition and ability to rotate. Therefore against squads of similar ability I would love to see better ball retention, less errors, better movement, sharper thinking etc... This thread is about comparing our club, squad, coaches with other in our league, whilst accepting that we have massive room for improvement, I still think that there is an argument to say that we are possibly overachieving, possiblynot as much as Brentford, but I think achievement is relative, ask Darrell or Clough junior, don’t ask Bruce. *night guys, got to stop
  11. I think Fam was decent business at £5.3, I think Lee hoped to improve the aspects of his game you’re eluding to, he still might. Either way happy to have Fam in our squad. A month is a very short time in football.
  12. Having spoken with the coaching team they do have a vision/philosophy, however we supporters must appreciate we’re not Real, sometimes you have to counter the opposition, we can always play the way us supporters would like, in league one under SC we had the budget and could attract the relative top talent and be more gung-ho, we’re still a small fish at this level, I’d like to think our management team would have us top 4 playing better football week in, week out with a Villa/Stoke budget.
