  1. How dare you use facts and corrects quotes to correct people who make up things to use against LJ and management. That is not how this forum works at all.
  2. Affection doesn't come across in type though, and with some of the name calling Johnson is getting right now, its not surprising people didn't take it as you meant. I don't particularly think LJ was lucky. Barnsley were pretty poor in the final third, missing one sitter, but we hit the woodwork twice and Fam missed a couple of good chances. If we were lucky because Barnsley didn't take their chances, why is the fact we didn't take chances part of the argument?...unless you want to focus on the negatives...because you are that against LJ...
  3. If you don’t think he is good enough, that is fine and a perfectly legitimate reason for not wanting him to be manager. I’m just curious as why to you that makes him a c*** or a t*** I disagree he shows no interest or enthusiasm for the club. I do agree he is calm but we only see that from media and touch lines. If we saw him going crazy in the dugout or losing it in an interview everyone would say he’s lost his marbles. Maybe he is just a calm and considered person?
  4. Out of interest, why do you think he is a C or a T (can't work out what insult it is). Do you think LJ isn't trying so deserves it? Or is disrespecting the club? Or do you think he's just not good enough to take us to the next level?
  5. I agree, LJ is trying to say/do the right things, but the performances don't back that up. I don't agree with a lot of the vitriol/hatred you get on here and twitter towards him. Save that for someone who disrespects the club. LJ is trying, no-one can disagree with that, but he may have hit a ceiling right now. He may be able to burst through that, he has the ideas and philosophies, but maybe he doesn't have the decisiveness and knowhow to go along with that. It all depends on how long SL gives him to do so. Still, I'll be there to enjoy the ride whether its good or bad.

    Maybe not talismanic, but that one season that Marvin Elliot played where he played the role of 3 central midfielders. It's probably the best season I've seen one player have. He was everywhere.
  7. I actually thought we defended very well today. Can only think of one attempt where Wigan looked favourite and that was the header over Dasilva that Bentley saved. Against a team which had around 70% of the possession, to limit them to so few chances was good. The fact we couldn't get the ball off them and then when we did generally kicked it straight back to them is a different issue!
  8. So team who won promotion at a canter + cup win at Wembley had a good team atmosphere Team currently mid table in the championship on a poor run off form getting booed has a quiet/negative atmosphere What a shock.
  9. What? A player who 90% of us wouldn't have minded if had moved on nearly moved on, but LJ and other management decided to keep him and played him and he's look promising and LJ and management are not fit for purpose for nearly letting him move on?
  10. He shouldn’t hear it from adults around him either, but I bet the crowd would have been shouting “**** off Lino” at some point...
  11. Oh I wasn’t being serious in the 2nd paragraph, just picking out some of the more used sticks to beat the club with!
  12. To be fair, we have been ahead of Brentford after 19 of the 25 games so far this season, 2 of which were the 1st two games of the season and the others the most recent games where they have been on top form and we lost 4 in a row. So despite us having a rubbish striker up front, LJs tombola to pick players, no identity, fans staying away, we are 2 points behind Brentford (who everyone wants to emulate) and 1 point behind Preston.

    I thought he was great off the ball - interceptions, closing spaces, etc but a bit careless when on the ball.
  14. According to you it’s because of their attendance? Id say it’s because of a few issues including the players themselves and the way the tactics are interpreted. Maybe Johnson needs to go back to basics for formations and player roles.
  15. So is that why the players couldn’t string two passes together v Sheff wed? Cos of Brentford’s attendances 2 weeks ago?
