  1. Massive decision for the club now. With the squad we have we really could push on with the right manager in place, big enough to attract and handle a few additional quality players
  2. The way we play, even watching for free feels like a bad deal
  3. Does anyone know why I’m able to stream the cardiff game without paying? I’ve not paid for it and I don’t have a season ticket code. It was the same for the Forest game, it was playing On BCTV for me even though I’d not paid? is this happening for anyone else?
  4. Same here, signed in ready to pay but it was streaming. It still wasn’t worth the money!
  5. The message doesn’t change it just gets reinforced with each shocking performance
  6. He’s reached his ceiling and it’s time to move on. Thanks for making us a consistent championship club Lee but it’s now time to go gracefully
  7. Midfield looks embarrassingly light. We can have the greatest attackers in the division on that pitch but if the midfield is over run we will be in trouble unless the strikers take all of their limited chances. 3-0 city COYR! LJ master stroke #tacticalgenius
  8. Yes I do think tactically Lee is lacking. His in game management lets him down. Without stating the obvious he seems fine when the game plan works but struggles to have an impact when things aren’t going our way I don’t doubt technology is a useful tool but I think he see’s it’s use as his own personal USP at the expense of good old man management. He never puts his hands up to problems and is always having little digs at the players. I will never understand how Lee was the right appointment for our at the time. As a manager he had very little experience and limited success and a
  9. Lee seems to over complicate the game for me. With the exception of one or two positions we are as good as anyone player for player. I think his lack of clear message is confusing the players. With most managers, tactically the players know what is expected. Can we say the same about Lee? football is a simple game but His over reliance of technology seems to be at the expense of old fashioned people skills and tactical nouse
  10. Recruitment has been ok in most places but centre mid has been shocking. We should be improving on the likes of Pack and Brownhill not going backwards. When the future involved a high press at least we should have been able to focus recruitment on certain players. Method to recruitment seems to have gone out the window. We stockpile fairly expensive, similar players at a time when money is tight (Patto, Palmer, szmodics) (Eliasson, Watkins, odowda) when realistically only a couple max will play. We then get can’t afford the quality we need in midfield but let Brownhill go as the money was
  11. I think by keeping him it will end up costing us more than we save. The football side feels really stale at the moment, it feels like we’ve run out of a plan both on match days but also the clubs future direction. im not a Lee fan but around the time of the Manchester cup run I thought I could see a glimpse of how I thought a LJ team would play and I was prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt. Whether that type of football was unsustainable it’s certainly not the direction we’ve progressed in. It’s dross what we are served week in week out and definitely not a sum of the parts o
  12. We really do need to get rid of Lee this summer. Surely no one thinks Ashton Gate has been a hotbed of entertainment and good value the past few years. He’s not kicked on in a way anyone would have hoped and is out of his depth. Its time to move on. Is there anyone who could argue that it makes sense to give him one more season apart from Steve Lansdown?
  13. I can’t see us watching home games from the gate until late October so give it a few months and they will be trying to persuade me to let them keep my season ticket money with talk of a promotion push, how we are almost there and how a tv voucher and my name in the programme is the only decision a true fan will make . well not this time, if Lee is still there and if Saturdays boring performance is anything to go on it’s a cash refund for missed games it’s a small stance but it really is a good way of sending a message to Steve Lansdown of enough is enough
  14. With the 3 month break I t’s easy to forget just how terrible we’ve been to watch for a large part of this season once again. LJ has forgotten that football is as much about entertainment as results and it feels like he is too worried about his own survival. The way the club judge success, by a minuscule out performance year on year is a big part of the problem. People will settle for boring football short term if it gets promotion or staves of relegation but not long term. Look at warnock teams, as soon as promotion/safety looks unlikely fans and chairman’s want rid. We have had
  15. Lee was a young inexperienced manager when he joined us. He had nothing on his Managerial CV to warrant the opportunity He clearly loves the club and wants to succeed (probably as much for himself as for us) but he simply isn’t learning and developing as a manager. He’s not moved forward, I’d go as far to say that he’s going backwards. He worries far to much about the opposition, sets us up not to loose ( which usually fails) and the days where we saw glimpses of the ‘high press’ and a possible interesting future seem long gone. Cotts was the perfect manager to get us out of leag
