    I think we're missing Kalas for a few more weeks aren't we?

    He missed the game against Wales because he felt ill. Presume he is still feeling the same.

    Does it cost that much to take down a few tents?

    If somebody calls you something that is hurtful and untrue, then of course you have every right of comeback. But for that comeback to take a violent or physical form, then that is simply a sign of a lack of intelligence or self control.

    What amazing gesture

    I'm sure plenty do and fair play to them as well. I'm also sure Joe Bryan didn't do this for publicity either. I wouldn't imagine he was expecting it to be tweeted by the Hospice, but it's nice that they did. The only reason anyone at all has picked up on it here is because of his City connections.
  7. OK, possibly a slight exaggeration, but every time there's a job available in the Championship, it wouldn't surprise in the slightest to see LJ in the list of fans preferred replacements.
  8. Try listening to OSIB, they interview an away fan after games at AG, and I think pretty much every one I have heard so far has had nothing but good things to say about Lee Johnson. His reputation away from the confines of this forum is very good indeed.
  9. Yes, if we finish lower than last season, then we will indeed have gone backwards. To my mind, unless relegation is imminent requiring urgent action, then that would be the time to take a look at LJ's continued employment. That table was roughly 4 games after Cotts went wasn't it? I know the results improved in the immediate aftermath of the sacking, but it was LJ that was chosen to get the job permanently and that recovery did indeed continue with him.
  10. I am not saying that Lee Johnson doesn't have his problems, the main one being that he has yet to work out how to adapt our 'style' when coming up against teams that are more limited in ability maybe, but more stubborn and determined to stop us playing. But I do believe that he is probably the best person to take us forward at the moment. Unless you would like to suggest someone else.
  11. Yes, we most certainly are. When Lee Johnson took over we were, without a shadow of a doubt, going to be relegated under Cotts. Since then we have improved our league position and points tally season on season. How can anyone argue that we were a better side then as opposed to now?
  12. The league table, season on season would suggest otherwise. It's too early in the season, and the league table is too volatile, to say either way this season. I would say that, whilst we are still to hit the (occasional) heights of last season, we are certainly a better side than when he took over.
  13. There are no personal comments, granted. But it seems that after every defeat the same people come out with the same comments, usually based around he has taken us as far as he can and any other manager would have been sacked. The truth is that we are improving every season, we are finishing within a couple of league places either way of teams with managers that the same people regularly name as what we should be aiming for. Lee Johnson is widely seen in the football world as one of the most promising young managers out there, and the majority of fans clubs in this division would give their right arm to have him in charge. You only need to listen to the fans view interviews that OSIB do after matches, he is regularly quoted as one of the things other clubs are jealous of us for. The fact that it takes no more than one or two matches for the regulars to come on here saying he should be sacked makes me think that there are other reasons for them wanting him gone, and it seems likely to me that these reasons are more personal than the footballing reasons stated.
  14. Interspersed with an equal number of unbeaten runs, where we play some great football. So long as the side overall keeps on improving, then I don't see how quite so many people have such a problem with Lee Johnson. The knives coming out for him after every couple of bad results certainly feels more personal than normal calls for a managers head. Should we find ourselves struggling at the wrong end of the table then of course his position should be under scrutiny, but at the moment we are one win away from the playoffs. A win that would surely have happened on Sunday had a couple of breaks gone our way in the first half.
