Lee and the team

Superfan?

Some don't see progression and see poor football. As is there right, they voice displeasure. I see absolutely nothing wrong with that. 

Lee and the team will be long gone at some point, we, the fans will still be here. 

Spot on mate.

The fans at the games have been good to be fair. This so-called toxic atmosphere hasn't really been a problem at all.

I think even LJ himself has been pretty impressed with the support at games and has said so.

Anyway, our fans are certainly no different to any other club's fans. No better, no worse.

Ok , but surely until Lee has gone we should all get right behind him 

We support the club, not Lee Johnson FC WTGR 62. Personally, I think his football is very poor this season and, given the £££ he's had to spend, his time at City should be in question. 

I've nothing against the bloke, I'm sure he's a good lad but is he lucky to still be in charge? Maybe. 

While he's Manager, I'll support him but that certainly doesn't mean he's beyond question or criticism.

Thought the support was excellent today.

If you want to understand why it might be possible to support the team and also not believe that LJ is the man to manage us there are many good explanations in this thread.

What do you mean by ‘getting behind him’ ?

Not questioning , or god forbid, criticising him or any aspect of his management on here ?

Is that what you mean ?

Most of the ones who aren’t, don’t go to the games, I’d guess. 
They are pathetic attention seekers, who’d panic anywhere more than a few steps away from the anonymity of their keyboard..!

Not in the slightest. 
Reasoned & justified questioning of his decisions, win lose or draw, is perfectly reasonable. 
 

Just saying “out” or calling him abusive names, or stating that someone else might have us placed better than level on points with teams in the top 6 is just moronic, un-thought out, snide, vendetta fuelled drivel.

Get behind him and the team?

Although it was a pretty turgid performance I thought the fans stuck with it, no boos or even many groans at h/t.

We just about deserved that win imo not a great deal to get excited about , but the crowd stuck with it right till the goal.

Agree, (I judge him on his whole tenure) and particularly where he is in ‘the plan’

Just saying “out” or calling him abusive names,

Agree

or stating that someone else might have us placed better than level on points with teams in the top 6

Disagree

is just moronic, un-thought out, snide, vendetta fuelled drivel.  

See above

Ok , what I'm trying to say is that I remember the early Alan Dicks days,  we struggled for a few seasons but eventually he got it right and got us to the promised land. I can't Remember the fans being so devided as it is now. We are playing at the highest level since those days let's all get behind the team and Lee and hopefully we get back to those days

Sooooo many people sit there and make zero noise during the game. Maybe it’s an age thing and some people just don’t have it in them.

I’m afraid to say I think you have to look and analyse bit deeper than that if you want to see us to get promoted 

Blindly getting behind any manager or head coach is unlikely to turn a non promotion side into one and I’d even suggest is not always beneficial long term for the Club or its supporters

What?

That doesn't sound like a ridiculous thing to say whether you are pro or anti LJ to me. It's entirely possible another manager might have us placed better. What a bizarre comment.

Fair - At some point it sounds like people support Lee Johnson, not Bristol City.

To directly answer your question because I support Bristol City and I want us to be the best we can be.

I haven't got around to calling for LJ yet this time, I still think he has done enough to stay for now but I can see why some would want him out - the performances have been dull and we have struggled against some of the poorest sides in the league.

Cum on City 62 was all so different back then. For  a start apart from fans around you in the ground and friends how would you know what the division was?

In the late days of Ford and early days of Dicks things were not all sweetness and light down the gate. We still moaned when we lost another Tuesday night game at home 0-1.

I think the main difference today most are to needy, they see fantastic football every week on the TV every night if you want it, then come to the Gate and watch that today and think this is shit.

Back then the only thing you compared City's performance with was against the next team we played.

Can remember in the early 70s teams such as Hull, Sheff Utd coming down and thinking wow this is how football should be played.

I shout at the ref and the lino.  Today their guy took a long throw and it was a could throw.  I shouted at the lino to watch his feet.  Next throw, the lino did look down.  But the player obviously heard me too and took it properly.

Last week I shouted at Brownhill to get onside and he heard me and stepped back onside.

Shrewsbury I shouted at LJ.  It was deathly quiet....he ignored me 😂😂😂

Just doing my bit....singing ain’t gonna help, not with my voice!!!

Because I'm a masochist, I like nothing more than seeing my team win every game, that's why I support Bristol City.

If you shouted at LJ "Get the midfield playing really ponderously and slowly and make them turn back at every opportunity and pass it to the centre backs", then it's possible LJ did hear you.

You'd have to be a bit strange starting that chant though.

An honest question '62 as I abhor crap posts like the opener to this thread, 'stay away unless you're perfect' crap that we've all seen before. Are you gas? This is the sort of garbage they would post. Either that or you're a 'better than everyone else' uberfan. What on earth did you hope to gain by this thread?

As a 45 year plus at the Gate man, I don't get it. Why? If you were born in '62, this is childish shite isn't it?

Childish shite just because it doesn’t match your opinion? People are free to think what they like. In my opinion we are treating LJ just like we did his dad and that ended really well didn’t it...

There is a lot of division generally everywhere you look nowadays, away from football. The internet exacerbates it, keeps it going, 24/7. People are more impatient and irritable (source? The Internet!), more dissatisfied, more quickly, more angry and furious, about anything and everything. 

It's a wonder the crowd are as mild and quietly supportive as they, you could also say.

Not read the thread but I heard Johnson saying that the criticism after Shrewsbury was 'fair, it was fair game'.

It isn't wrong to criticise when criticism is justified. The debate at the moment is whether it is justified or not based on form/performances/league position. 

It might get a bit heated and annoying, but the debates we're having are worth having.

So telling City fans to 'stay away' is the answer? I don't think so.

Whether or not someone agrees with an opinion or disagrees with it, I'm all for free speech and debate but telling people not to attend is better? Uberfan stuff and I, for one, can't stand that. 

The personal stuff aimed at Lee is, I agree, out of order. I've posted that I think his time at City may be, justifiably, nearing its end but I don't know the fella so wouldn't criticise him personally. I'm sure he's a lovely bloke.

This is the same Lee johnson who had us playing great football just a year or so ago. It took ages tfor us to get to the championship, whats the rush. the championship is great and our football will get better, its just a building phase. Get rid of johnson and we risk doing an ipswich and dropping through the leagues .
