Bounce

Recommended Posts

Yeah especially as 2 mins after Johnson did his bounce they scored to make it 2-1... it’s complacent and should be left until the last few minutes when victory is assured in my opinion.

Not sure it was even two minutes....same passage of play.

It was just symptomatic of the mood in the ground I think. It was so much more upbeat yesterday and this was all part of it. The fans were really enjoying the game and the way we were playing it. Good to see IMO.

how long after they scored did we score? don't think Johnson bouncing has much bearing on maters on the pitch..

 

A minute or 2, max.

last week this page was full of people complaining at the lack of atmosphere down the gate, this week people  are complaining about bouncing - somewhere along the line, the two are connected. 

Complacent or not, it doesn't matter.

Might be me being grumpy, but anyone think that 2-0 after half-hour is a bit premature for ‘bounce around the ground’.  I accept there was a bit of a lull in the game as Huddersfield looked to just play it around and take the sting out, and perhaps crowd were looking to get us going.

But asking Johnson to bounce and him respond at 2-0, 10 seconds before we concede looks a bit crap (and arrogant)...should’ve left it to the end when win secured.

Bah humbug on my part possibly!

Totally, I hate it when that starts so early in a game. A perfect way to inspire complacency!!

It was good to hear the fans make some noise and the bounce was just part of it. Don't think the Atyeo joined in though.🤔:facepalm:

A few of them did, but it was very cold. Come to think of it , only the ones without coats were bouncing.

I thought it was pretty flat yesterday to be honest. Better than some weeks but still a bit quiet between goals.

It’s just a bit of fun and gets everyone going . Yes it has the potential to backfire!

I agree with you and I disagree with you ... disagree because we haven’t been 2-0 up at home since mid August so any chance to celebrate that should be taken ... but I also agree with your post because it could potentially be taken as arrogance and complacency for our Head Coach to be bouncing up and down so early on in a game. If I was Danny Cowley I would have had a few words, taken the piss a bit and then used LJ’s bouncing as a motivational spur for his team .... so, in summary, “blinking blimey, we’re 2-0 up at home for the first time since it was too hot to sleep at night, let’s start bouncing!” tempered with “wow, we look a bit complacent and arrogant, given big capitulations in our recent history, when holding large leads, let’s not celebrate too early we could look a bit silly!”

Totally agree, it was good at times and as you say better than some weeks but not great and cant blame the performance on the pitch this time...lots of empty seats aswell...must have been the lowest "actuall" crowd of the season.

At 2-0 it makes sense in the stand but not for LJ but he can't ignore it when it's sang - he couldn't predict the goal was going to come in the following 30 seconds either. It's arm waiving that does it for me - the song is bounce around not do the monster mash.

All preferable to sitting in silence though.

Remember if you don’t sit in the “east end” or “bounce” you’re not a proper fan and you get booed. 

I take this as a bit of bants and not meant in any we are better way.

I sit fairly close to singing section and thre was a good effort at bouncing from all stands and LJ himself but all got booed anyway.

What I wish and has not happened for a while now is when there has been a decent effort fans start singing Ashton Gate bounce around and keep it going and I think lots more will join in and it will look quite impressive.

No, I agree with you and I winced, finding it embarrassing at that stage. To be clear, it would have been fine later in the game when we were three up and obviously heading for a good win.

Everyone boos, it’s pantomime.

Its funny, who gives a ****?

Better than the week before.I always think the bounce should be reserved for 2nd half not when we are 2-0 up. As we know for us 2-0 is a dangerous score, So yes ramp up the singing but leave the bounce till later.

After some underwhelming and drab home performances at AG it was pure relief to see City actually playing some decent football and scoring 2 early goals and that led to the ‘bounce’ chant...........

Now City have to keep it going............

I've always thought that Lee should put a bit more effort into his bounce, he only ever does a couple of slight jumps with no arm movement. If he's going to bounce he should do it properly or not at all imo. 

Quite right ... put yer back into it Lee - here ya go!

Can't remember what being 2-0 up is like....been a while 👀

You’ve got a short memory chief - you were 2-0 up in your last league game, about 7 days ago! You obviously weren’t there ... #LoyalAndTrue ... ✌️😄🍷

Doing it properly is with no arm movement.

OK, well he should at least take his hands out his pockets. 

The modern bounce has you kind of punching the sky with alternating arms reaching up. That's what I'd like to see Lee do, or if he can't be bothered that's fine.. Just don't bounce at all.

But he has it right. The correct way as animated here:

I thought the best effort by the Singing Section concerned their apparent disgust at the corner taker not putting the ball in the correct place.

 

Even managed to get the ref to come over... good effort!  :chant6ez:
