  1. LJ worked hard. Despite some very notable failings in his skill set up, you most certainly cannot criticise him for lack of application and dedication. The reality is he was in the wrong job and too early. His support team did not cover his deficiencies and the lack of clarity of process a really notable worry when you consider best practice in football and his supposed dedication to studying the best. He failed to follow so many basics of success it is only shocking he was not fired earlier. He is a good coach, players have improved under his guidance, and he has ability. As a coach. How he w
  2. Where is he now ? Very good at the coaching side, not the people. The similarities to LJ are there. Use him where he is good , even exceptional. Nothing wrong with being an exceptional coach . LJ would have been awesome working with SC for example. It is a double act. Was Fergie a great coach ? Does Klopp do all the coaching ? It is a team effort and there are different roles. LJ ilke SOD is not a top leader , however both are/can be top coaches. Both SOD and LJ highlighted huge flaws in the BCFC set up, and both should be credited for doing that. But, neither is a top class number 1. SOD know
  3. Players really rated SOD as a coach. But a disaster with people. Horses for courses. LJ the same. Can become a great number two , at the very highest level also . Just not a number 1.
  4. The sooner the better . The club need far better on recruitment. He is good at the deals but the scouting is nowhere near the required level.
  5. Where is he now ? Great coach . Not a number 1. LJ is the same.
  6. SOD did impress a lot of players with his coaching knowledge . Not a number 1 though.
  7. Tripled the wage bill and spent millions to get to a negative goal difference and mid table. The club made a reasonable statement. No need for anything else. SC got less , so what did you expect ? Thanks and good riddance. The players ? Well some, some, will miss him. Others, well good job he was not in war, he would have been going over the top alone. Coaching not bad, leadership zero.
  8. Experienced hand can be taken in different ways. I would suggest experienced , in terms of age seniority is not necessary. But someone who has experienced higher level football, be it as a player or coach would be highly desirable. Also the club can hire any coach they want, but if the recruitment is not at the required level, they will fail. The club need a true director of football and head of scouting.
  9. The club first and foremost need to decide what it is they want to achieve as a footballing philosophy. Every 5 years or so we hear that the Academy and pathway to first team is a core value. It has not been in the last years, there is no connect between the youth football and first team and how they play. They also need to completely revamp the recruitment process so that it matches that philosophy and also substantially improve the people involved in that process. We are nowhere near as good as people are led to believe in both of these areas, yet the potential to be far better is evident.
  10. Secret footballer As for losing a dressing room, it most definitely does happen and it will come on the back of a manager that changes too much too soon or a manager that just isn't up to the job and is out of his depth. The players will lose respect and stop trying as hard.
  11. That is hilarious. Look at overall spend and wage bill. Look , we all have different opinions, that is life. You are happy with LJ, I am not. The football is third world from the 70's, dire, awful, no youth development, buying old pro players, no connection to the youth teams and no footballing identity, we can go on. You are happy , great for you. With his resources and millions spent, and time in the job, I feel the club could be in a far better place. That so many hate going to games when we are 7th should sound some alarm bells. Something it is not right, and that has nothing to do with w
  12. To an extent I agree, but why can we not match Leeds ? Money, resources, time, you name it we had it. But we are 7th and play like a poor Warnock Cardiff side. Last season it was Sheffield United. Time to stop making excuses. 7th is great in terms of historical performance, but the past means nothing today. At least play great football and be 7 th but our continual goal difference erosion season on season is for a reason. We are less than the sum of our parts, and only a hugely increasing wage spend and transfer budget masks the incompetence. Money talks . What his father did was exce
  13. The biggest blagger in the land, is Lee Johnson and his band, if the ******* had a clue we would easy be top two
  14. There are three books to be written about LJ . Book one The Emperor's new clothes , book 2 Walter Mitty, book. 3 The great Bristol City Ponzi scheme
