  1. Rugby and football both supported by some people who are utter bell ends. Just different types.
  2. I don’t think people are saying that he’s been poor though are they? The point is that the way we set up is due to Johnson wanting to get Eliasson into the team. Clearly he is a valuable player but is he that valuable that we need to sacrifice a formation that would suit our squad as a whole better? Actually scrap that; just read the posts that said he has been poor...
  3. I’m pretty sure he does. And he thinks Eliasson is too valuable to the team to play that formation. I think he’s wrong, but judging by the reaction when Eliasson was taken off, I’m very much in the minority.
  4. It did look like an upgrade. Both were outstanding and both have regressed to an incredible extent. Would rather have Walsh and Morrell in and around the squad to be honest.
  5. A formation we should go back to, using Eliasson as an impact sub when we need to change things up.
  6. Clearly facts around what caused the incident need to be established but the idea that a member of the public acting like that wouldn’t investigate is laughable. Also not sure it’s people being ‘snowflakes’ to think that children having their head cut open by the police is pretty concerning.
  7. You do realise this doesn’t reflect well on you? Just shows you made a judgement about one of our most scapegoated players after day 1.
  8. There is literally no chance of this happening.
  9. I’m increasingly of the view that he should go but the idea he should resign is pretty ridiculous. First because he will believe, perhaps naively, that he can turn it around. Second he isn’t going to leave a job with nothing - this is the bloke’s career and livelihood after all - and why should he?
  10. I can’t believe what’s happened to the player we saw in the first game. He was completely outstanding. Clearly struggled with coming back from injury but you also have to wonder whether Johnson’s continuous snide comments about him around his injury and international duty have taken their toll. It’s something he also did with Kalas. Totally get that the club pay the wages but frankly if I were Kalas or Nagy it would mean far more to play for Czech/Hungary respectively rather than City - the club would do well to recognise that and keep some of the criticism private (if needed at all).
  11. I think you can definitely argue that it would be difficult for the club to sack Johnson right now. He, along with Ashton in particular, has done a tremendous overall job in improving the club. It is testament to what he has done that so many of us are so frustrated despite being in touch of the play offs. At the same time, I wouldn’t be at all sorry to see him go. That performance today was pathetic, and for years we have been enduring slow, static and tedious play at Ashton Gate while Johnson bangs on about identity and the media buy into the myth that a Lee Johnson side is great to watch. It’s rubbish, of course, and Johnson’s whole persona doesn’t help him. Throwing players under the bus, business speak nonsense, over complicating every single element of the job all help to slowly build resentment. It’s a real shame. I loved the start of that season with the cup run, where it felt that we were really creating something special. He is great at aspects of the job, clearly he works extremely well with some players, he’s great with kids and does the ambassadorial stuff really well, and fundamentally he has transformed a yo-yo club into play off contenders. He appears to love the club which I think is extraordinary given the stick he got as a player. But nearly isn’t enough any more. Increasingly I feel he’s done what he can and it’s time to move on to someone who can take us one step further.
  12. We’ve got a better keeper, better central defenders, full backs on a par at worst when fit, a much better central midfield, better wide options (Eliasson is clearly much better than he was two years ago, for example). Up front we are weaker but hardly a result of lack of effort from the club. This is a much stronger team than two years ago.
  13. Rovers at home every time. I get the idea that we have nothing to gain from it, but football is all about rivalry. For me Cardiff has nothing on Rovers - the reality is that when we play Cardiff it’s a bit livelier - completely different atmosphere to what you would get if we got Rovers.
