Lee had offers.

You don't like him, that's fair enough.....you're an idiot, you've given me proof of that.

I'm an idiot for suggesting Leeds and Villa had no interest in Johnson and City is the best job he'll ever have? 

Yeah right...

Entitled bullshit as per. 

 

We haven't finished this high, this consistently since Alan Dicks was manager. 

 

Something for nothing society. Never grateful for progress, never grateful for loyalty, never grateful for anything.

Boomers. Destroying everything. Worst generation ever. 

... ill-informed guff as per.

It would probably help you to go find your snowflakey safe space and sit down quietly for a while - such anger and bile - the modern world is really hard isn’t it?

Making up that you had offers? Yep completely embarrassing, but the misplaced arrogance has long been one of LJ’s shortcomings. 

So you've decided LJ has made it up?

Even though we know he was shortlisted as someone both Villa and Stoke had been considering in the past.

 

What is embarrassing is a one time rational poster such as yourself deciding that our head coach is lying about job offers because of your own personal dislike of him.

I often wonder whether Lee himself realises this is his best chance of success.  When you see how quick the likes of Leeds were with Heckingbottom, he might be grateful he hasn’t taken up any offers he may have (or have not) had.

Out of interest, because I don’t know, was that shortlisting from the clubs themselves or the media / bookies?

That is one way of looking at it. Another way is the criticism is based on his overall performance of boom or bust over the 4 years he’s been with the club. I’m sure he said he needed 3 transfer windows to get the team he wanted. Well, it’s a lot more than that and most of the fans don’t know what the best team, formation or tactics are and I’m sure LJ doesn’t either. 

I’ll ask you one question, are we better as a club when we started? Anyone who doesn’t have a stupid agenda against Lee Johnson would say yes. Is he good enough to get us playoffs? We’ll find out at the end of the season. My point is Lansdown won’t sack him when he is level points with 6th and 6 points off top. So we should back him till the end of the season instead of stupid topics that eventually turn into a slamming thread of Lee Johnson.

Also worth adding and considering

 

‘Is it because of Lee Johnson’

Has he been a positive / neutral / or detrimental to the progress

Taking the piss out of his height because you have nothing better to say :clap: well done you 

Haha, shows how little you read. I've been more than clear why I think LJ needs to go, in fact most of my posts are constructive rather than just sagging off others opinions without adding anything constructive at all. 

God forbid I make a short joke 😶

if the home and away form was reversed the venom towards LJ would be next to non exsistant. 

 

Sadly the home form fails to excite the hardest supporter and whilst this remains the case the question about LJ will continue to arise.

Never heard of it but some people will believe anything that emanates from the head coach. Perhaps a fan can produce evidence.

Not sure I agree there.

If we won the league and ended up first season in prem narrowly avoiding relegation then fans would be as bad as ever towards LJ.

I'd even go as far as if we went up and comfortably stayed up some would still want him out.

Well he narrowly avoided relegation from the Championship in his first full season here so I think your wild ‘prediction’ is somewhat flawed

I wonder if Ashton & Mr L have asked who it was that was tapping him up. A complaint could be made, if they were so inclined. Yes, it happens, I know.

Hopefully someone above us in the table and results in à points deduction.

Massive disagreement there, I mean if we won the league then LJ would have had to have improved his football and tactics which is what the fans want. You don't win the league by only winning 6 games at home or playing shit football so simply put, we wouldn't win the league unless the things the fans are fed up with changed.

The home performances have been inconsistent (not all bad) under LJ, but what you get with him is a guarantee of Championship football, what other manager in our recent history has been able to offer us that? If we swapped him i reckon there's a much greater chance of us getting back into a relegation scrap than getting promoted to the Prem, let's face it the top managers don't want to come here so we end up with someone who's unproved at this level (as LJ was originally) and it's a big gamble.

We are at the stage in our development where we need to either ‘ shit or get off the pot ‘ .

 I very much believe that SL has backed the manager 100% to enable us to have a good crack at promotion.

If Lee doesn’t deliver at least a play off spot then I believe we need to take the risk of changing the head coach in the summer . 
 

Your comment about top ‘ managers ‘ not wanting to come here is nonsense. First of all we aren’t going to bring in a ‘ manager ‘ but a head coach and the modern way is the system that we are using .

Dinosaur ‘ managers ‘ need not apply but progressive experienced coaches would give their eye teeth to work under SL .

You aren't special because you're old. 

I've supported this club through thick and thin, all over the country for 24 years. Went to my first game 26 years ago. 

Doesn't make me any more correct or wrong. It's absolutely irrelevant. 

He is the right man. He's been the right man. He will continue to be the right man. 

Thankfully more qualified people than you agree with me. I'll back Lansdown's decision making and approach to success over some nobodies on forum any day of the week, tah.

 

Yes, SL has a great track record of picking the right manager doesn’t he..............

No other Championship club would have employed LJ when he was the manager of Barnsley, he had just presided over one of their worst losing runs in their history. Something he actually finally achieved with us! 
A decent manager is consistent, something LJ has never ever been, win a few, lose a few, he’s Mr pot luck.

The club did it to Steve Cotterill. SL showed zero loyalty to him.

It's amazing how fans always want more. But also with LJ we have to take into consideration that fans simply don't like him.

If you look at other fans of clubs who have been promoted to the prem, lets look at Villa.

Their manager was like a God when he took them up. A number of fans have wanted him out because of them struggling in the prem.

I bet their fans would have all agreed they would keep him no matter what. But once a team starts losing, even if it's in the prem, fans won't be happy.

Same goes for us if we ever get there under LJ, I am sure of it.
