  1. Try the Forest match thread, mate. It's all pastry on there
  2. Ah, but is it? Or is it his squad that Mark Ashton has assembled? Or his squad that he and Mark Ashton have assembled?
  3. That optimism you display here and clearly enjoy, sir, is good for health and longevity, apparently. I wonder how many years yet it will be before we are one of the group of (49) clubs that have managed at least one season of PL football?
  4. Blackburn are, but they beat us comfortably.
  5. Bugger. Need some joss sticks for watching us v Forest tomorrow ....
  6. You don't run a shop in the High Street, or the Chalice Well Gardens shop, selling, er, crystals and bits of stone that "heal" and beads that sort yer chakras out and shit?
  7. A role that SO'D found himself in, after leaving us (ie, it's a bit "who you know"/who you ingratiate yourself with, football, and not entirely a meritocracy, as any black footballer going into management will confirm) so not necessarily the ringing endorsement it might seem. And incidentally, do we have the names of who thinks highly of Lee, and something concrete to illustrate this thinking, some evidence in other words? "He was highly thought of" gets mentioned often but seems a bit vague to me.
  8. @Davefevs The GD thing is very interesting. I remember watching that when you put it up before, Dave. Someone was on otib saying "yeah, but ..." about Brentford (and the case against LJ and how he compares to BFC, whether to sack or back) the other day, highlighting that Brentford have finished 11th (last season) and 9th in the last two seasons (ie we're not a million miles away from where they were recently) But look at their GD and ours: 14/15 Brentford 5th +19 15/16 Brentford 9th +5 Us minus loads (but not really Lee's doing that season). 16/17:
  9. I had a longer look: 1910 16th First Division (start as you mean to go on) 1920 8th Second Division 1930 20th Second Division 1940 - 1950 15th Third Division South 1960 22nd Second Division 1970 14th Second Division 1980 20th First Division 1990 2nd Third Division 2000 9th Third Division 2010 10th Second Division 2020 12th Second Division Generally, then, as a decade ends, we ar
  10. On 11 March this year, the Guardian ran some puff about us - "Mendes, Wilder and the SAS: How Lee Johnson has Bristol City on the rise" (cough) - in which Ben Fisher reported that Lee had been in Portugal at the end of last season, and had attended seven matches. And the Pereira loan came out of this. In another piece a year or two before the same paper, in amongst some more very lovely, gentle reportage on us (the national media appear to completely ignore us when we are average or worse and they might need to write something critical, strange), reported that Lee had been in Verona watch
  11. I thought we had decided LJ was at fault? Can we bloomin' decide, once and for all, so we can finally, decisively, unequivocally, apportion our misguided blame and opprobrium/abuse, and know who to demand be sacked. Cheers.
  12. "Lee is central to a large project...." Er, yes. We cannot cope without Lee, and the whole shebang, sorry, "project," will collapse like a "Marlon" of cards, should Lee ever leave us. No other coach could hope to have Bristol City 12th in the Championship. Never mind 8th! It is Lee, or bust. Back to 1982. Well, League One, certainly. Don't do it, Steve. You know you, sorry, the "project," which is "large," is ****ed without Lee. Lee is central to everything. We are nothing without Lee. So, I'm with Bat: Johnson stays, Johnson in. Forever.
  13. Pros: We're a steady, midtable Championship club. Cons: We're a steady, midtable Championship club.
  14. Yeah, c'mon Landsdowne tweet something nice about Nigel Farage and the Football Lads, and then sack Remainer Johnstone. F***'s sake.
  15. Today? Today? It's a dream away ....
  16. Pros: He's not (nowhere near) as bad as we thought he was (16/17); he talks a good game (if you like) Cons: He's not (nowhere near) as good as Steve thinks he is/will be; without Bobby Reid, his football is incredibly ordinary, mundane.
  17. Had we known in January that the season would be paused in March, and restarted in June, thus meaning Afobe would be available for the final fifth of the season, would we then have spent so much on a 29 year old (Wells)? If not, then we have been undone a bit by the covid 19 disruption, in that we have two (new) players where we needed one (upfront) and are short of quality in midfield. The money spent on Wells could've been spent on midfield, had we known the season would be paused for three months.
  18. You have to feel sorry for Lee, losing BA for so much of this season.....don't you?
  19. ...we bristled a bit at that, but you were right. You helped shift us on from our old, sentimental ways of seeing players, loyalty and how to do transfers etc, into a new dawn of 21st century player trading. It has worked well. Damn well, in a few examples. We have changed, we get it. Now, you and your head coach; and "not getting too attached..." Your turn, Steve.
  20. "Ch-ch-ch-changes!" I think Dave B. was talking to us just now, from the great beyond, via BBC2. "But I never caught a glimpse, Of how the others must see the faker ....."
  21. But that’s what Lee is good at - talking a good game, spinning the football spiel, and drawing you in, and making you think that maybe this will work, getting you to believe in something unbelievable. What he's not so good at is, er, doing it, making it real, the doing as opposed to talking. Or getting the doing to get anywhere near matching the lavish talking. Lansdown and Ashton should be talking to each other, knowing their own minds, making their own minds up, not giving Lee any more opportunity to yap. The last thing any of us need right now is any more talk from Lee. If
  22. This is said a lot. Do we have a list, and anything concrete to back it up?
