    Papering over the cracks

    I was about to start a thread called ‘bollox, we won’ to try and goad the ‘haters’ into responding, but it appears they’ve done it for me. Sometimes it amazes me that they exist at all, but it’s a weird thing I guess I have to adopt as a City fan. Johnson out - after a 3-0 win away - how dare he - we were on for some sort of a record of away defeats (I think) - now we will have to come up with some other bizarre stat to discredit him. Perhaps the boos from this game were not from the QPR fans at all - it was the City away fans who wanted a defeat in order to strengthen their argument to get LJ out unbelievable

    Andreas Weimann Utter Class

    Weiman is a fantastic signing for us. Bit of genius from LJ and MA (admittedly amongst their duds) - credit where credits due

    Fam

    I don’t get this desperation for a striker- the reason for our misfiring so far this season has had more to do with our defence. I’d rather we signed a couple of solid full-backs than a striker. Weiman is doing ok and Fam will be available soon - I’d say we are ok up front. Only my opinion of course.

    Stuffing tomorrow?

    I think we will lose, but not get ‘stuffed’. Borough are a good side - but so are we. There will be goals - I predict a 2-1 defeat.

    Could our next head coach come from within?

    I’m satisfied. He hasn’t taken us down. Neither of the Johnsons did, yet some sectors of our support wanted GJ gone (where did that get us? Oh yes but we can’t talk about that can we!) and now Lee - probably because of some deluded fantasy that his replacement (Klopp?!!!) would suddenly romp the league and herald a new premiership era for the club. In reality, whilst POSSIBLE, it’s highly unlikely - more likely would be a return to league 1 and a 4-year setback. I will criticise Lee when he deserves it. Right now we are only 2 games into the season and he hasn’t had time to do anything that warrants criticism yet in my book. Perhaps we should start a ‘Lee Johnson Dustbin Thread’ for people to use, rather than have these popping up as new posts every other day? Just a thought.....,,

    What happened to the Snake?

    I thought the snake emoji was a GOOD one in recognition of Taylor’s pet name - I’ve used it out of respect for him before. I had no idea it was supposed to represent a negative response!!! ooops!!!!

    Lee Johnson - Time To Go

    ‘Time to go’ is when/if we are in the relegation zone in December with no clear strategy to climb out of it - whoever the manager is - and believe me I will be stating it on the various forums. Sacking a manager 2 games into a season would be utterly stupid and to be quite honest we would deserve to struggle - and most neutrals would want us to go down. This has nothing to do with it being Lee Johnson - I’m not a ‘lover’ or a ‘hater’ - it’s just footballing common sense. People of a certain age like me have seen to much of League 1 (Div 3) for our liking, so being an established championship side IS progress and we shouldn’t rock the boat. its like being on 17 in blackjack. Twist or stick?

    Did quality of football influence your support?

    Started following City in the 1970s but didn’t go to any games until 1980s because my parents were not into football in the slightest so there was no encouragement or support for my interest We didn’t have a TV in our household either until 1983 (no we are not Amish!!) so I had to rely on watching random football at mates houses. If I based my allegiance around quality than I would have joined the ‘plastics’ years ago and probably followed Man Ure. I cant help what I am - City is in my blood. Unlike some though, I don’t hate Rovers - I honestly don’t really care about them really - if anything I feel slightly sorry for them, but if forced into a corner I would say that it’s an embarrassment and shame on Bristol that neither of its 2 teams has ventured higher than the Championship since we were last there in the 1980s.

    Barnsley - Mental Health/MIND Charity (Merged)_

    I’m suspicious of such things. I guess I’ve grown up in a world of vicious ‘banter’. Getting relegated hurts as a fan, but I’m used to people actually WISHING it on me (I live in Swindon) so I just grit my teeth and bear the pain when/if it happens I absolutely support this initiative and hope other clubs might do similar. Mental health (or lack of it) is not visible Not belittling it at all.

    Very good - assuming it’s not a wind-up.

    Two matches in and panic aboard

    Aah yes, but those ex players you refer to fondly are the same ones who contributed to the dire spells you mentioned in your earlier post I agree we are unlikely to reach that level of completeness (Manchester games) for a while (if we ever do), but we are less likely to be crippled by an injury or ban. I don’t think this season will be a bad one. Of course that depends on expectations.

    Two matches in and panic aboard

    This is true, but amazingly you left out: - best cup run for years, which led to..... - highest profile for years (being noticed and discussed positively in the media) and... - most number of victories against top-flight teams for years, including...... - beating Man U in front of a sell-out AG crowd plus millions of viewers on TV - and..... - a very respectable couple of performances against the best team in the WORLD - highest average attendance for years - highest attendance for first game of the season - highest league position for years - most TV appearances for years (ever?) - highest expectations among pundits and ‘experts’ for years (ie not tipping us for relegation) - longest run of consecutive seasons in the 2nd tier for years - healthiest bank balance for years - £10m made on a striker we would have sold for £100k a year ago Some people (we all do) feed you cherry-picked facts which paint a picture they want you to buy into. Yes those poor runs were exactly that: poor and frustrating, but they didn’t end in relegation, so they weren’t disastrous- and taken alongside all the positive stuff that’s happened things are not that bad really.

    Two matches in and panic aboard

    I’ve stated in various posts before that I’m content with Championship status. As a supporter since the 1970s I have seen too much of Div 3 for my liking so Championship is ok by me. I stress ‘ok’ because of course I want us to achieve promotion to the Prem at some time in my lifetime, but for now I accept Championship. Within that acceptance and overall contentment with the Championship status I have fluctuating opinions on individual games and performances; I’m happy when we win, satisfied with an good performance and miserable as fk when we lose. As Milo said earlier if we are looking like relegation is a real possibility around Xmas then I’ll be calling for change with the rest, but for now I’m ok with the way things are.

    Dud Watch

    Not a dig at anyone, but if the guy was suffering from depression and struggling for confidence then it couldn’t have helped reading all the stuff about him on these forums - he must have wanted the ground to swallow him up and end the nightmare. Good luck to him - but he will need to grow some if he wants a career in this game - fans are merciless when you are off form and he will need to cope with it.
