    Academy thread

    Are we still playing people 2-3 age groups up?

    Will Flint celebrate if he scores.

    A return to the Flint in his first season with us?

    Because that wasnt what my point was. I drew a comparison, "theres a difference.... and blind faith" You highlighted it the first time, but left that part out since. Selective quoting? I exagerrated a little with the "inherantly negative about every little thing", "about every little thing" wasnt needed. You have misread and then misquoted me by leaving out the context of the rest of the sentance. "I would never say to kill someone" "kill someone" An extreme version. "If our current form continues under LJ we are doomed" "Under LJ we are doomed" Not so extreme

    You missed my point entirely though, before you even asked that question.

    I couldnt say, probably seems like more than there are because when they start on something they dont let it go. Maybe a dozen- at a push. More if you include those who vanish when we are performing well. Missing the general point of what I was saying though.

    I'd say that's fine as a concern if reasons can be given to back it up. You cannot be concerned without a reason to be, so if voicing a concern provide a reason for it. Things like squad strength are subjective, and someone may disagree (personally I am unsure and think it is too soon to tell just how good the replacements are), but providing they can provide their thoughts for why then that's fine too. A healthy debate if people manage to provide their reasons. "I think we're weaker defensively because we have lost Flints aerial dominance" vs "Our defense it shit now" Concern vs Moan

    The sensationalising happens from both sides. And once one side starts the other is likely to sensationalise their counter point. However those being critical tend to be more likely to discount part of Johnsons time here to suit them. Such as when listing all the 'failed' transfers' (evidence in this thread already). Or exaggerated, like saying that last seasons form post December was relegation form (it wasnt, there were 4 or 5 teams who performed worse during that time). Or when they point out the horrendous second half of the season in 2016-17, but don't mention that we had been around the playoff places for the first third of the season then. When looking at Johnsons time here objectively you have to look at the entire picture. That's including the good and the bad, but most who are critical of him (at least those on a regular basis) don't. They discount the good parts, or try to diminish it ("oh, we had a cup run"), yet most who are generally supportive of him acknowledge those bad runs, and probably have concerns about certain aspects (I certainly do), but a lot of the criticisms aired on here are exaggerated or half truths. But what doesn't help is when anyone who defends Johnson is labelled a "happy clapper", "head in the sand" or "rose tinted" (and vice versa).

    There's a difference between moaning and having concerns. Equally, there's a difference between not being inherently negative about every miniscule thing and blind faith. Perhaps some need to work that out.

    If the forum is for moaning and debate, and you remove the moaning then you are left with debate.

    Burton according to the club. https://www.bcfc.co.uk/fanzone/club-history/potted-history/ Have seen people saying about stuff being sold to Wigan before though.

    Time to get positive and back the club and team

    That isn’t true though, it’s just a bad excuse. Against Sunderland last season we were fantastic, but the atmosphere was flatter than a steamrollered pancake.

    Not sure all the officials understand it sometimes! Was a tight one Tuesday, and another linesman may not have given it, but even though the shot was from an onside player, Eisa was offside and judged to have interfered with play. Hope you enjoyed it though.
