  1. The fan base should have seen by now that LJ is not going anywhere and calls for him to go will fall on deaf ears. Just to say that LJ is not a "manager". His role is First Team Coach. There is a difference. LJ is part of an overall management structure and thus he is like the figure head for the team but he is not solely in control. That is the problem with your questions and why sacking LJ is not going to happen. There will be "disappointment" if targets are not reached but they will be explained away and justified. LJ is a young coach who is developing and he fits the profile of the
  2. Its scandalous that the midfield is said and appears to be "weak". I don't believe that to be the case. I think that we are not being set up correctly by the manager. You have to look at the stats and perhaps someone knows where to get them from but I would be interested to see the stats of Brownhill, Palmer, Weimann, Odowda, Elliason, Nagy Look at - chances created, assists and goals. Only Eliasson would have respectable figures and he has not even played full games. That tells you that the extent of the problem. I personally think we have too many similar players. LJ needs to find his b
  3. To be fair, when you come out with a lot of "jargon" in the media it creates a false impression and most of us have "heard it all before". When you stay quite and do your talking through the business we are seeing, then that is what we want to see. In that regard, Ashton is doing a superb job. He is clearly an astute guy and has done some cracking deals. Our club has done lots of talking over the years but now I think we can all see a serious sea change. Young players coming through, players extending deals, players being moved on for serious £, better players coming in. Strong negotiation in
  4. Not sure I agree with this. 1. Semenyo has played 30 odd games compared to Eisa, who has played very little and had a spell out injured as well. 2. Semenyo has been playing well. He looked good against Boro and has impressed on his loan. 3. It is the perfect time to introduce him - the team are playing well and on a good run and the lad has confidence. In fact, it could be a master stroke. Lets see. 4. It reminds me a little of when Leroy Lita burst on to the scene and did very well. What was unforgivable is that he was not utilised when he was bang in form by Wilson. I
  5. It is frustrating watching City. TBH I gave up my season ticket after the debacle of 2 seasons ago. I go to selected games but it really was making me feel ill and ruining my midweek and weekend. Johnson should have gone then. Are we any further forward.... debatable. On paper mid table in the toughest league in the world seems pretty good. However, the worry is that a run of bad results could see as in trouble and thus, there are very fine margins indeed between success and failure. This season we have been poor. There is no real pattern to our play. I am not sure LJ knows his best 11 (we hav
  6. Dont disagree with any of your comments, which are a very insightful way of looking at it overall.
  7. Its SL who needs to hang his head in shame. He is responsible for recruiting LJ. But at the moment I am struggling to see what the fuss is about. We are a mid-table team in midtable? Performances have been poor but is not exactly surprising is it? This is the guy that took us on a record breaking losing streak and last season led a team that capitulated when it was comfortably 2nd at XMAS. The reality is that LJ will have to fail to be sacked and that means relegation. SL does not share our views, in fact: 1. He will see LJ as the perfect figure. The nice guy who does not rock
  8. I think there is one word to describe the situation - "Apathy". I have not posted for a long time because I took the view it was not worth the argument. SL has his project so let him get on with it. I did not renew my ST and go now to the games I want to. Works for me. This season we have been a shower of SXXT with some highlights to build our hopes. However, I saw all of the games on are record breaking losing streak and nothing much has changed. SL is lauded for the £ he has spent (rightly so) but has it been done wisely. The answer is no. Even if Johnson was relieved of his position, woul
  9. No fan of LJ. But we are a midtable team in midtable. We have threatened to progress but have then lost key games. Given the boards position, LJ ain't going nowhere.
  10. I agree with your posts on this to some extent. His age is irrelevant. If he is good enough he is old enough. Abraham had no experience of the Championship or Mens football and did rather well. I think the onus is on Moore to play well and take his chance. Similarly with Vyner and any of the other younger players. When he played last season I always felt his play was a bit loose. He gave a silly penalty away at Fulham in the Lg Cup and got caught out of position at Ipswich away. He did OK at home to Hull. I personally dont think he is ready for the first team and I would give h
