  1. You're absolutely correct Major .........of course it's actually around the 29th of January when that happens!
  2. No it just illustrates how far ahead of the market Captain Bullshit always is...........He's busy putting out the fire before it's even started!
  3. The man can certainly bullshit can't he? Short version: We planned to only sign Nketiah but Arsenal f'ucked us - again.
  4. 2-1 harsh on wolves who had chances to win it
  5. Well of course I wouldn't take them back NOW.....they all managed here a long time ago - most in the last century!, Benny is retired and pushing 80 for example. That's why I said Cotts. None of the 5 are currently working in the efl or PL. As to wether - back at the time - they were better managers than LJ then demonstrably they all were before joining as all of them had at least 1 promotion on their cv. None worked out here for various reasons ( McInnes and SOD had to drastically cut wage bill whilst staying competitive, Benny came to be DOF but was thrust in when JW quit, Pulis football style +gas background wasn't liked and shouldn't have been hired, Coppell quit when SL interfered in his recruitment plans)
  6. LJ has won nothing achieved nothing. Ever. Get us in the play offs , a final or something. Just because he finishes 9th or whatever that is not an achievement. Even SL is growing impatient with him. Cotterill who you casually write off has (without checking I add) I think 5 promotions on his CV. Something I doubt LJ will ever achieve
  7. Plus Smith Freeman Little and Williams That's 10 .....only Fielding and Flint cost money - both signed under SOD. I think the only fee Cotts paid was Agard in the double winning team.
  8. We all know the story......what went on before those bids is the point.
  9. Cotts wasn't backed though was he ? Not even a tenth of what SL has given LJ, despite that he managed to sign Kodjia who remains our biggest nett profit sale and the epitome of Steve Lansdown's sustainability model of buy young talent cheaply,improve,add value and sell at a profit............
  10. £64M to move up a couple of places ? You're easily pleased
  11. Cotterill ! My point is that those listed weren't good at City but there was mitigatng factors. LJ has had time money , more money, employed a large back up team of analyists scouts coaches and drones, and - even more money.
  12. Facts are facts. Ok h e probably has an ok win ratio and he's been in charge whilst Ashton has flogged a couple of SOD & Cotterill's players which brought in a few mill, And he beat Man U. I'm not sure what other facts I can add, I search for positives.....but there aren't any. 8 windows,57 signings and he still is looking at defenders midfielders and wants 2 strikers. Enough is enough.
  13. You can't defend him £64M spent 57 players signed 37 man first team squad - over 40 when loans return 8 windows & 4 years And he STILL hasn't built a balanced and cohesive side, doesn't know his best team, formation, or tactics. Or developed an "identity" (despite talking about one a lot - even Holden couldn't say what it was when asked). He's a fraud who has bullshitted us for years with his gobbledygook talk of box entries, clutch, POMO, Xg corridor of uncertainty, and all the rest of his claptrap. He's never won anything, never got a team to a top 6 finish anywhere, no track record. Other managers have been quoted on this thread as being the worst e.g. Benny Pulis McInnes SOD even Coppell - but all those have had success before or after City and their lack of success at City was due to budget or other constraints. LJ has had everything he wanted - in spades - and achieved nothing. And that Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury is why you must find him GUILTY of being our worst manager
  14. Sounds more like Dick's IN !
  15. 1. Why on earth would I want to check your posting history? Who does that? 2. You've proved nothing. What has he achieved? ( nearly being around the top 6 and finishing 10th isn't an achievement...and SL agrees) Even SL has had enough of being asked for money for yet more players every window.
  16. Iindeed...but too many of the players signed (with that money) have been poor/don't play/get loaned out/aren't starting. I honestly think - for example - Cotterill would have got us promoted by now had he been given the money LJ has ....even allowing that Reid Bryan etc would always have been sold.
  17. I'd like to reply but your post is unintelligible ...best leave it for tonight.
  18. He sold ONE player at a profit. I could take over Man Utd and sell Rashford for £50 Million - doesn't make me a good manager.
  19. I'm comparing to other City managers- the point of this thread......not other championship clubs/managers which is another discussion entirely You're clearly an LJ appologist who can't see how poorly he's performed despite being given every opportunity. What other manager signs 4 central midfield players in the summer - adding to established midfield Smith & Brownhill, with a £1m player already loaned out.....and STILL wants another. A 1st team squad of 37 - not including the players loaned our (10 I think)..And he needs more? He needs to go.
  20. He has actually spent £64M and the ONLY player he's actually signed and sold at a profit is Webster. All the others he's sold (or rather Ashton has sold) were either here already (Bryan Reid etc) or signed by other managers (Flint Kodjia) Kodjia being our record profit. My point - which you miss entirely - is that given the time, money, signings, and backing... Given to no other BCFC manager...he had clearly has under achieved massively. Had LJ had the constraints that McInnes SOD etc worked under then I'd say he'd done a reasonable job........but that's not the case. He's had the tools & hasn't done the job.
  21. He's achieved nothing. 4 years ago when he was appointed - if during his first speech he'd said that over the next 4 years I'm going to spend £40+million on 57 players over 8 windows and still be mid table championship .....we'd all have been horrified (including SL!). Who appoints a manager with the remit of spend a fortune and achieve nothing?
