  1. What a great thread...full of revelations. This bit that intrigues me is what influences getting signings over the line. Player relationship with LJ...agent relationship with MA? Both?
  2. I'm going on what he said after the match yesterday to the audience he knew would be sitting in their cars waiting to hear from him...I thought he was unguarded and honest. And what he said suggested to me something that I've discussed with others way from here, that we are signing players like Adelakun and Szmodics, who play pre-season but get no where near the first team, simply as an investment. Whilst failing to land players who will make an impact in the first team. Now, I'm far from LJ's greatest fan, and can't understand why a player like Palmer, with all his talent, can't be better managed, but I thought yesterday that LJ was revealing cracks in the corporate wall. I will listen to the press conference as well though.
  3. I listened to LJ on the radio as I drove back yesterday...and for all my scepticism about him I'm increasingly with you on this.
  4. Thought the support was excellent today. If you want to understand why it might be possible to support the team and also not believe that LJ is the man to manage us there are many good explanations in this thread.
  5. When Lee Johnson leads us to glory I will be happy to eat all my negative words. The players certainly put in a shift for him - and us! - today.
  6. That felt like a big win. But could easily have been a big defeat. Open match. Hat fulls of missed chances for both sides. We don’t look like a top 6 side but that was a gutsy win. So credit where it is due. Great play by Jay for the goal.
  7. All three of them are very inexperienced. This is a tough league. Naturally they are all gaining experience as they go along but I'd question how likely it is that they are going to succeed. LJ is the boss and appears to have selected them. Not what a side with Prem ambitions needs...in my opinion. But good luck to them.
  8. Yep. Somewhere in that squad is a cracking starting 11!
  9. Remarkably smooth purchase - from which I conclude that either the club has got its systems better organised...or no one wants to go!
  10. Agreed...although I'd like changes and to enjoy the experience of going to matches a bit more! I was just watching highlights of the Bob Taylor era - that was more like fun. However, I'll be there on Saturday, with one son, and hopefully at QPR with the other...and despite my moans we'll doubtless renew our season tickets as we have for most of the last couple of decades...despite living nowhere near Bristol...more as an investment in the club than to get any discount on match prices. It's the hope that kills though...
  11. I had a brief dispute with Fam's Party Hat earlier, which ended in politeness. I share your thoughts on both the name and the avatar. Amongst the finest of recent times. Take a bow @Famara's Party Hat
  12. ...when the system will doubtless crash at 10.02 or somesuch! Cue frustration. Looking forward to it!
  13. Thanks for doing the research...and I wouldn't consider that a dig! Johnson himself seems to believe that he's got a reputation for winning and losing streaks. If I'm over emphasising that abysmal 2016-17 sequence which ended as if by magic after that thrashing at Preston I hold my hands up. In that run I unusually sat right behind our dug out for the home match against Cardiff. Warnock was their manager. We were one up and playing really well. Warnock and his two assistants prowled their technical area like grizzled beasts...and made a double substitution that changed the match...whilst our guys looked like callow youths, unable to respond. Men against boys it felt at the time. In 2017/18, having been second at Christmas and beaten Man Utd, losing just 3 games and winning 13 in the league at that point, we might not have lost that many matches but went on to win just another 4 and threw away a promotion challenge...It feels to me that things happen to him, that he's not in control. Certainly seems that way again at the moment.
