    It's time to support not slaughter.

    It’s football, it’s passionate. If I’m happy with what I’m seeing I’ll sing, cheer and clap. If I’m disheartened then I’ll boo. We are Bristol City, why should our fans react differently to anyone else up and down the country. Do yo think Newcastle fans sit on their hands when things are going wrong. It’s the interaction, passion and hope that as fans we can make a difference, force charge that makes me feel like it’s my club

    LJ publicly puts pressure on SL for signings

    For the last 3 years we’ve been investing heavily in ‘ones for the future’ Well LJ the futures now here and it’s not feeling like that plan has worked, I’m sure with the money invested we have a infinite supply of young stars coming off that ‘one for the future’ production line so no need to panic about the poor squad, weak spine and lack of leaders. Or maybe they just knew how gullible us fans are!

    QPR away - important to win?

    We all know how the team and LJ struggle to dig themselves out of a winless run. We need to get a first win under our belts ASAP before confidence is shot and last seasons H2 form is back with us. A win, any way possible will do me. We can get back improving on our nice but toothless football after we have 3 points in the bag.

    Patience is required

    If MA and SL really aren’t that bothered about fans patience and feel that it’s their club and they can do what they like regardless I would put that down as a big mistake. SL quite rightly pays his money and makes his decisions but fan power wins out in the end, it may take time for SL to admit he’s got it wrong with LJ and feel that he’s not lost face but he will eventually. We are Bristol City, fans do have a say unless we are totally different to any other football club/ fan base out there.

    Patience is required

    The questions should be ‘has LJ got the required ability, tactical know how and experience to work within the remit set by SL and if not does he show signs of learning quick.? Does LJ and MA have the foresight, experience and ability to recruit the right players to fit the model forced on them by SL and if not, are there signs that they will learn quick? Personally I think LJ has shown little sign of ever being a good manager and lacks the ability to learn from his mistakes and develop. Both MA and LJ recruitment is pretty appalling regardless of the ‘remit’ LJ and any SL project are not joined at the hip. SL can still persists with this ‘project’ with a more competent man at the helm. As mentioned before, personally I think SL has lost the love for Bristol City and it’s time for him to see if there’s anyone out there who can relight the fires and has his old level of enthusiasm to move us forward.

    LJ publicly puts pressure on SL for signings

    I don’t want the club I support to throw in the promotion dream in August. I don’t want to watch them on a Saturday knowing our only ambition is to be a feeder club for the likes of Villa. This approach will catch us up in the end and we will end up like Barnsley, a profit in the bank but division 1 football again. If this is the sole ambition of the owner and board then the fires of enthusiasm has clearly gone out for them and I suggest, despite being great for Bristol City, the love affairs over and it’s time for SL to test the water, put the club up for sale and see if there’s anyone else out there who would like to put Bristol on the footballing map.

    I will start it!

    I don’t think LJ will ever become a good manager. He certainly isn’t one yet but the hope is that he’s young and will develop into something special. I just can’t see any sign that this will ever happen. Nothing personal with LJ, he no doubt loves the club and wants to do his best but I can’t see he has it in him. Tinion loved the club but struggled at management but at least he showed self awareness and knew when it was time to move aside. Will LJ ever put his hands up and admit his own limitations?

    Aden Flint

    Give him respect before the match, give him hell during the game and then show appreciation on 90 mins. He will be going all out to help his new team beat us today and help himself to a goal or two in the process no matter what he thinks of us so no need to make it easy for him.

    The Bristol City v Middlesbrough Match Day 3

    I see Pulis still looks like he takes full advantage of his staff discount in the club shop. Any merchandise he doesn’t like to wear?

    But it’s two games into a season which follows a season where we went on an appalling run a threw away an opportunity which may or not not come our way again soon. On top of that, a unenviable away record and a previous relegation threatened season. Even given all this, two games is far to early to judge LJ but in my eyes at least, he hasn’t the luxury of bags of time to prove he has what it takes. Time to walk the walk LJ.
  11. I always thought that the Charity Shield would be a good game to take abroad as a one off as it’s a slightly more meaningful game than a friendly. Probably would have to be played a week or so earlier though.

    Lee Johnson - Time To Go

    Whilst I agree that 3 games is too early to call for LJ head, the inexcusable collapse post Christmas and a season where we never quite worked out how to play away from home means in my eyes at least, tolerance and slack is in short supply. We really do need to start showing some form and proving we can hurt teams with our possession. Was last seasons early form a sign of how good the team could be or just an exciting blip in between 2 poor seasons? as for Fam, he was had his ban at the end of last season so we’ve had plenty of time to either replace or work on a suitable plan B but it feels like we are happy to write off August and September and prey Fam hits the ground running Why we cashed in on Milan i’ll Never know. He should have been told he had to stay until January.

    I thought it was interesting that in the Post article quoted LJ doesn’t mention Duric being injured. Anyone know if he is or not? LJ goes on to say "And I think that was the only thing we missed today. Maybe that little bit of physicality in the forward area” if fit, surely Duric should have took up one of the two forward spot on the bench to give us this physical option.

    Mo Eisa - NOW OFFICIALLY SIGNED (merged)

    He’s not going to cost a fortune, he’s playing locally so would know the area and hopefully would have heard good things about us from the management and loanees so you hope he would settle reasonably quick. Compared to punts on the likes of Taylor Moore, Engvall, Eliasson it feels like he ticks a few boxes. All transfers carry a risk though.

    Mo Eisa - NOW OFFICIALLY SIGNED (merged)

    I think we should be taking a chance on this lad. When I think of some of the expensive ‘one for the future’ type punts we’ve made over the past few seasons or the expensive hit and miss foreign imports we’ve brought in this one seems like a bit of a low risk, no brainer. Sign him up, look at him until January and loan down the league if deemed not ready.
