I am not a fan and Bryan is not a left back. Those issues need addressing before we consider Premier football.

We need two quality fullbacks, Bryan should be in the midfield and Wright is not a full back at all. Hodor is still a liability and Pisano is not certain to be back permanently when he gets back from his injury. 
A quality side who will go into the Premiership will always have quality waiting to come into the first 11 and all positions will be competitively fought for, we just don't have that.

Thank God Baker will be back on Wednesday,  we have missed his no nonsense defending,  a bit of steel at the back.  Once again lost a good lead and given away 2 points, I think this high pressing game is having it's affect on the players and it's showing that it's very hard on them to keep it up all season.  Never mind on to Fulham and let's hope they can turn it around in the next game.

Yet still not able to hold multiple goal leads?

Great progress eh. 

'Tactically inept' will be come back soon. 

This is the way Lansdown wants to do it. It's not the end of the world doing it this way.

He could have appointed Gary Rowett and spent the money Villa and Wolves have to have gone up. We're doing it a different way.

I don't blame Johnson, we were cruising at 2-0 and nothing was changed, then the bottle jobs threw it away. It's a mental thing and the manager doesn't get to change that when the game is in full throw. The players need to take blame for this  and realise ther let the fans down as well as the manager.

I kind of agree with you there.

However I thought LJ waited too long to bring on a sub. Think he was scared to make the same mistake as last week. Then he brought on Woodrow ffs. Doesn't he know that he's basically the Invisible Man?

Still - I never expected more than a point before KO.

And a tactical change was made right before said corner.

Johnsons decisions have got us into the playoff spots.

Rearrange these words- grip get a.

He did changes too late.

Managing well the team for some months doesn't automatically cancel his recent errors.

We all know that Woodrow is not as strong as Fammy, that probably Walsh is not at Pack's level, etc. ... but not doing changes is the perfect way to help the opposition. He needs to be more fast in his decision making, or we'll continue losing points.

Leeds played much better in the second half for sure, but from the half time scores two games in a row when you fancy the top five would have seen them both home for six points pretty comfortably

Just seemed to lose our control in midfield at half time, and carried very little threat. The worry as it has been for a while is that we do not really for the top six have a strong bench. Not the worst result in the world, but not looking great either.

You won’t hear a word against LJ will you? No one can question him in your eyes.

Last two games have been pathetic, a very worrying fragility has crept into our team...last season we were 3-0 at Derby and drew and we were 2-0 up at Newcastle and drew...sound familiar ?

We've missed an opportunity. We didn't buy experience in January. 

In all Carey fairness LJ has a patchy record on signings as is well discussed here and elsewhere. What he has proven his worth with is motivation. He has jelled the players that were here when he arrived and played them in a better formation but the players he has bought have been a rather mixed bag thus far. Tactics when ahead remain amateurish.

Pathetically embarrassing again.

Shades of last season.

When shit like this continues to happen there is something wrong somewhere.

Just like last season I am struggling to see where our next win is coming from.

Play offs?, 11th at best for me.

I agree this is really a perplexing puzzle because it was the same last season - and for LJ the third time in his career.

end of a depressing week when SL was quoted it could take us up to a century to be a top Premier team.  That is clear nonsense, and only makes sense as long as current ownership remains wedded to its five pillar policy regardless

I am optimistic - realistic - in saying we could be a top Premier League team in under ten years if we had a realistic strategy.

This really is hilarious on here. 

Frustrating, yes, but seriously... Not the end of the world. 

We are in the play offs, we've had an unbelievable cup run. We all want promotion,  but one step at a time. 

The club are moving forward, Johnson is still very young and I'm sure will admit himself still has areas where he needs to improve. 

A lot of the management aspects will only come through experience. 

Chill the **** out

I don’t think we actually played that well all game, 2 goals from Leeds being poor at the back yes but despite that we didn’t really have many other clear chances and too many poor final balls. At 2-0 up we looked reasonably comfortable but it looked like there was no real game plan and more just trying to keep ball and try control the game, but again it didn’t work! Last week and tonight’s performance/result is exactly why we won’t stay in the playoffs

Well i haven't posted on here for a while. Has been interesting watching from afar. Made it clear as day that we needed experience in January. Our signings were so poor. LJ already doesn't trust Walsh or Diony it seems. You need to sign players who are better than your first 11. We've made up the numbers. What a fragile group of players without Baker and dare I say it Pisano. Need those two back and Wright and Magnússon sadly out 

Exactly. Neither Walsh or Doiny could have come on today to affect the game in City’s favour. Both may be good first team players in a year or two, but that doesn’t help the push for promotion this season. Where was the full back signing we needed?

It's not what we do.

I think the club's plans are clear and we have to go along with them. 

As long as we improve next year then I think Lansdown has been proven right.

I can’t see us finishing higher next season than this. 

Flint, Bryan & possibly Reid will all go. 

Absolutely fuming. We’ve completely ****** this. Again. We can say “it’s not what we do” but basically all that means is “we don’t get promoted to the premier league”. 

Teams that spend big when their stock is high, and strengthen when they’re on top, go up. End of story. 

2 of the 3 players we brought in in January werent trusted to play today. 1 of them has been ripped apart 2 games in a row for being too selfish. 1 of them has been an unused sub 2 games in a row.

A strong bench and we see that game out comfortably. But we are STILL resorted to bringing on Woodrow as a sub. We knew he wasn’t good enough in October. 

We will never learn

There is certainly a similar vein reoccurring as that of last year but as much as I was in the LJ out camp back then he still has a few Brownie points in his favour this year. However, this type of capitulation needs to be addressed as a matter of urgency. Promotion candidates at this moment we are not.

I had to check to see if I'd opened GasChat by mistake.
