    Craziness at Sporting Lisbon

    Had to Google this. A crap ton = 4 sh*t loads. Sounds like close season work on the Mem pitch. Dump they 4 sh'loads in the centre circle.

    Paul Hurst -Ipswich

    Morris as a No.2. Reckon there would be unanimous agreement about that amongst City fans. Sounds like he's done well at Chelsea, though. Maybe we should have had him coaching not, ahem, playing?

    What was in there? His gloves? Contact lenses? Haynes Workshop Manual on Keeping?

    Read so much crap

    It's difficult to set aside our 2018 form but I will & look at yesterday's game in isolation. LJ got the starting X1 wrong. They all looked frightened of Clarke & Sharp not just Kelly. At h/t I thought this could be 5 or 6 nil. LJ changes it, fair play & we get one back. Not for the first time, Flint. He gees up the crowd, great free kick from Joe playing in his best role, attacking mid. Got the crowd back on side & I really felt we'd draw or even win. End the season with a bit of a flourish. I understand that LJ wanted to give Semenyo or Bakinson some minutes but to achieve it he chucked his h/t changes out of the window. Worst of all Bobby, one of the Champ players of the season, probably playing his last game for us, marginalised & shoved out wide. You're better off leaving, Bob, & good luck to you. LJ's stock is not exactly high at the mo. He needed a performance. I cannot imagine any other manager in that position doing what he did. To me it showed complete disdain for the fans. The actions of a man who feels he's fireproof. His toys & he can break them if it suits him. Shame on him.
  6. Could LJ be tempted even though they say never go back? After all he did contribute to their double season before we poached him. They have a project to find em in the lower leagues, or bring em through the academy & a superb coaching set-up that LJ must have been involved in during his time at Oakwell. We heard, often, from Barnsley fans last season as we battled relegation with LJ & they were doing rather better. It had a hint of "told you so" about LJ but we were on our record losing streak so maybe not all sour grapes. They were about to sell their best players but they had the next batch coached up & ready to fill the voids, or so they said. Sound just a bit like our project? Well, like ours except our next batch isn't ready or have been near enough written off. Now I know we have SL who has already shown his willingness to back his manager with cash so all is not lost. Barnsley, at that time, didn't so had to go the cheaper route. Hasn't turned out well for them has it? Maybe it was the loss of Heckingbottom to Leeds but I think it shows we need to be careful that our project doesn't lead to League 1, too. We have numerous players "in development", farmed out etc. If we're serious about survival in the Champ, let alone promotion, we need some quality incoming this Summer. Am I confident that our management team will find such players, no. Just desperately hoping I'm wrong. ps to any visiting Gas........Understand that Barnsley now have a billionaire owner so you may have some serious competition bidding for star players next season though the lure of Tents R Us & those famous quarters will, no doubt, be the deal clincher.

    Important lessons learned today

    LJ is the man to take us forward. Anyone hear that said today?

    Antoine Semayno

    That's why our man is a sought after young coach, don't you know. Stick our top scorer, who may have been playing his last game for us & who might well have got an equaliser or even a winner, out on the left wing. It's how he's achieved those great results since Xmas. By being innovative. It's Total Football LJ style. It's why we're in the play-offs.......oh! Giggle. Still, we did beat Man U. Before someone reminds us.

    Johnson Final Appearance on Radio Bristol for 17/18

    Totally agree Red Ex bar the bit about wet behind the ears. Five years as a Head Coach/Manager. For me he just hasn't got what it takes to get beyond a middling, muddling level. Too much coaching theory.

    Is Lee Johnson the most overhyped manager we've ever had?

    The OP was talking about Len Johnstone, the most incompetent brewery manager the world has ever seen.........And it's Lenny Johnstone......you know the tune

    Reinvented indeed.....Mind The Cash, 6th richest club, Prem in a matter of months was it? Reinvented in their own minds because the reality is too much to take on board.

    Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    My guess is trying to find some spurious reason to prevent Wycombe from taking up their hard-earned place in League 1 next season. Any offers?

    Is it a huge, giant marquee over the whole ground? Bit like the state of the art stadiums with a retractable roof. Theirs will have a gert big flap at the top & someone will have to climb up & unzip it.
  14. Eliasson. Already has the job. It's why he never gets on the pitch. Always going over employment issues, player welfare etc whilst on the bench. Sometimes assisted by Engvall, usually by email from Sweden.

    Get a grip

    Not heard this before. Have I been half asleep - like our defence?
