Shame he wasn't given Johnsons purse.

Different times back then.

To be fair, he was backed well to get us out of League One, a journey I think we all enjoyed.

Don’t think they would have helped him in all honesty. 

Horses for courses so good for league 1 but right decision at the right time made.

To be fair we had a side that won league one at a canter, quite often momentum is enough to see teams get back to back promotions.

He was also able to sign Kodjia, Callum Robinson and Ryan Fredricks. Also in that squad was Fielding, Flint, Pack, Smith, Freeman, Ayling and Bryan. 

We should have been better than 22nd

LJ’s purse has effectively been earnt by selling a lot of talent. Eg Kodjia, Reid, Flint, Bryan, Kelly and Webster.

He was instrumental in his own downfall imho. By sticking blindly to his formation from the promotion season. I seem to remember we won the match after he left, pembo took over and changed the formation

Was her backed well, thought because we sold Sam Baldock we actually made a profit on transfers that season.

We sacked Cotts four years ago today - we 

Were 22nd in the Championship

Had a GD of -23; the 2nd worst in the league

Had won 4 games out of 26

God forbid Johnson goes on a bad run...

Talent which was pretty much exclusive to Cotts’ squad.

That’s my point, he had what he needed at his disposal but couldn’t use it.

He also had a player called Bobby Reid.

im just trying to make a balanced point. I loved Cotts and I’m 50/50 on LJ at the moment but think he should get the rest of the season

Was it Cotts or SOD that had a go at our fans in the Atyeo in what was possibly their last game? 

Cotts was taped ranting at a fan near the old tunnel and was gone inside a week.

We have improved each season on our league position  . Shame what’s on the pitch hasn’t

Some might say shame he didn't go pragmatic for 12-18 months to reap the rewards of said bigger purse. 

We had less than 50% of the turnover that season to what we had in 2018/19.  Check the accounts.

Something is going to have to really click in to place to notch 70+points this season. Nketiah might be our last hope!

Exactly.

SC made it clear what he needed. There was some sort of bust up over approaching Gayle and Gray and it all went south! 

Who was at fault, who knows, but we approached Zak Clough (Zac **** I N G Clough) to save our season and he told us to do one as had Gray and Gayle eventually.

I was in the bar at Reading after conceding a 90th minute winner and Mrs D walked past and I looked at the tv and said we are in the bottom 3. She said 'we know where we are'...That's when I knew SC was on days to do!...The bringing in of LJ was a shock to most a couple of weeks later and the money began to flow!

Didn’t that side draw 1-1 and beat them 3-2..?!

EDIT: apologies, that was the season before.

That 1-1 v. Shrewsbury under SOD was one of the worst games I have had the misfortune to watch.

Whoever turned that into pushing for playoff places for three consecutive seasons must be a mighty popular guy!

Whoever blew the chance of promotion for three consecutive seasons must be a pretty questionable guy!😂

Look, we haven’t the biggest budget or wages. We have a great owner but he just can’t drop millions into the transfer kitty with FFP, although he has invested lots of money in other areas, ie wiping debt. He wants us to be sustainable in the future. We have a great stadium. Proposing a new basketball center with hotels. We are again tinkering with the playoffs. Yes - we haven’t got it right this season but we are 1 point off the play offs. We have to sell to buy - that’s a fact.

There is so much negativity. 
Looking on here we want to replace LJ with Warnock - effing crazy!

What I read, it’s like we have a divine right to go up. Look around the league and even to league 1.

Please get a grip.

Can only assume that in those four years we have formed some sort of philosophy on how we want to play, pick a settled team and after spending a fair amount of money look a good bet for the play offs............oh........
