2+ leads blown under LJ

How many of those have we messed up? Seems a lot and I don’t think we’ve come back many times from 2 down to offset it...I’m sure someone out there has the stats on this...

We won't finish there if we can't find a way to beat struggling teams

5th or 10th is still only going to be 2 or 3 points. We battled last night against a fired up Barnsley. We did give it away but  it would be good too see where Barnsley finish at the end of the season as i would put 50 quid on them being in the top half at the end of the season

5th is a total false position and not just because of our extra game. We have had a run of easy games and haven’t cashed in. We’ll start drifting down the table now as we start playing better teams

I’m not interested in that - I’m talking about 2 goal leads thrown away by LJ during his time here.

Or we will up our game as injured first teamers return and we bring in one or two quality additions in January.

I’ll have £50 with you, I’ll even give you odds of 2-1

When do we ever bring in quality additions in January?

Can we auction the price? I give 15/1 but minimum bet is £200

Good opportunity some money off someone who doesn’t know what he’s talking about!

Reckon Lee made wrong substitutions and also made them at the wrong time.

But its all a matter of opinion.

We made Barnsley look better than they are.

A skill in which we are past masters ( not just Barnsley)  - sadly!

I reckon any team on a poor run looks at the fixture list to see when they play us.

Did he give any reasons in the post-match interview?  Based on an assumption that there was no injury to Moore, I can’t understand that one.  Watkins first start....70 mins....yeah, I get that.  But off the back of the goal, that would’ve given the pkayers on the pitch a bit more energy psychologically too.

Or will that simply give Mr Johnson more options with which to tinker? It would appear that the more players he has, the more uncertain he becomes as to what is his best side.

We are 5th because of the points we have and nothing else. Its how leagues work and unless you've got a crystal ball how do you know we'll slide down the table ?

Come on get a grip we have only lost 2 games. We are in a strong position at the moment. There are players coming back from injury so room to improve. Things can only get better

You make that sound like a fact as that’s more of a statement than a prediction.

For me it appears that LJ thinks its job done when we're ahead and then tries to shore things up. How often do we go 2 up and then press on to score 4 or 5. That doesn't happen with LJs teams.

Interesting perspective, so lay the blame squarely at LJ’s door..! Whilst ignoring all the positive things that have happened during his time here..!

I see The Gas are currently leading away to Rochdale... They're sure to win this one after going 2 nil up inside the first 15mins....  OK as we all know Rovers aren't exactly a very professional outfit but never the less it's very unlikely as a pro team to throw away a two goal advantage, three points to The Gas! 

Its hard to imagine any pro team being incompetent enough to throw away such a lead on the road, nah, it'll never happen.

You make it sound as though we are the only team to have been pegged back from being 2-0 up. 
It happens regularly. Get over it!

You have misunderstood me - I’m not an LJ out or hater. I’m just wondering what the stats are cos there seems to be a high amount of two goal or more leads thrown away compared to other managers.

My view on LJ is he is a good manager who has had a bit of back luck this season with injuries. He seems to have addressed the losing runs issue 🤞. I’m hopeful he can get us to the PL.

  • 28 September 2019: Preston (a) - 2-0 up, 3-3
  • 10 February 2018: Sunderland (h) - 3-0 up, 3-3

Weren't we 2 up at Norwich last season before losing 3-2?

Nope. We were 1-0 up, then 2-1 up and lost 3-2.
