  1. I would add to that the fact that he replaced SC who was/is rightly a well respected manager for many City fans, and virtually God like for a handful. A few of SC’s biggest fans were LJ’s biggest critics.
  2. Looking at what both LJ and MA are now up to at their new clubs, it certainly looks like it's MA who, with 18 odd new signings this summer, is the bigger "spender" of the two when there's money available.
  3. Hard to see for so many football fans and easy to say, but right now, it’s all about the bigger picture. Success in football has to be built these days. That building takes time. For me, for the first time in while, we have a proper football person, with a track record, in place, who is willing to get stuck into all areas of the club. If we had a day to day hands on chairman or experienced DOF steering our development, chopping and changing managers might have less impact. At the moment, that’s not the case at BCFC so it’s about trusting someone to captain the whole ship. For me, we, as a club, have to put faith in someone to do that, unless the whole structure is changed and Nigel Pearson is as good and realistic a candidate right now as anyone. I’m expecting plenty of bumps in the road and frustrated with some of the results - but i’m also already positive about some of the progress. I won’t be considering him leaving until well into next season.
  4. Strange half. Preston started and ended well, looking most dangerous throughout. We had a decent spell in the middle of the half but couldn’t turn the pressure to chances. Getting the ball into some decent positions but lacking the quality to create. Preston breaking and finding width well, some great runs into the channels and Johnson has way too much time and space to pick his dangerous passes. Need more pace and we can cause them some trouble.
  5. Egg timer = countdown till playing again?!
  6. Spot on for me. Trust the plan.
  7. Superb win - fantastic team performance. Very promising stuff.
  8. Ah yeah that makes sense. Glad it worked better this evening!
  9. Missed tonight's game: Did King play more advanced today? I didn't love them both in the 2 of the 4-2-3-1 vs Boro...Looked like NP may have tweaked that and played King higher or wider with Cam in?
  10. I remember saying when Holden was appointed it would set us back two seasons. Frustrating as it is, that assessment seems right now, this season is another transitional one. I take heart in the fact there were some nice glimpses of quality today, but ultimately the hangover of the Ashton/LJ/Holden era still looms long over the squad. You can sense there is tension in some areas of the squad as NP starts to assert his authority and his way - ultimately he’ll win and soon enough we’ll have a team fully playing for him. I’m willing to give it time.
  11. That was the cup though with Nagy? Also the bringing Kalas back in slowly, fitness wise, argument went out the window when he played 90 mins in the cup - seems a waste of minutes if he had a view to starting him today.
  12. I'm not saying he is the answer, whatever the question is. What I do believe however, he is currently our best CB and with a team struggling to keep the goals out, seems less than ideal to be sat on the bench.
