IGNORED

A small insight from Liam Walsh?

Think he’s a **** for doing this TBH. Unprofessional and embarrassing 

Kind of agree. Not massively fussed but is unprofessional.

LJ actually gave him chances way before he was ready. 

Even when he went to Coventry some of their fans weren't impressed. 

He clearly got to his new level after a while at Coventry.

He's probably ready now. And could possibly be a real quality midfielder at our level.

But he wasn't really before. And LJ did give him some game time. I thought we could have given him more game time but not so easy unless he was to play better than he was.

Only stoke home when he came on as sub and Norwich 1-0 loss where he looked really good left wing second half.

Oh and a good performance against Plymouth in cup. But not much else so he can't feel too harshly treated imo.

That's just the standard temporary promotion until the new person is appointed. 

Interesting that nobody was immediately appointed (yet) so maybe the hierarchy weren't going to pull the trigger just yet 

I wonder if he was offered the chance to stay to the end of the season while club searched for a new manager with an 'amicable' split at the end of the season but declined the chance.

Imagine being offered a job and then being given a different job to the one you’d been offered. I wouldn’t be happy with my boss. If you don’t want me to work for you then why give me a job? At least give me a fair chance to prove myself? I can understand IF Liam Walsh is annoyed with LJ.

Not true. When I was working everyone in my team loved me. I know this because they told me every time we were discussing pay rises and bonus payments 

Funny that, they told me that you were a c***!!!

:rofl2br:

Was that Lee Tomlin doing the ‘sub me’ sign to Lee Johnson just after they scored? 

Thought that was ‘interesting’ if so.  

 

He definitely did that. I didn't realise it was aimed at LJ though, but makes sense. LT was a complete tit when he was here, and anything that happened was his own doing.

Think they were waiting until the play offs were out of reach 

Should have announced at the end of February then!  :shocking:

That’s all very well. 
But then imagine that it wasn’t your boss that offered you the job, it was your boss’s boss. And your boss didn’t really want you in the first place but was told to take you on by his boss.

Fair play to Liam for having the balls to like that , he clearly knew he was never going to get a chance with Lee here, to me it shows a bit of something about him , good to know he's not just another spineless playing scared to say anything

This is what concerns me going forward. 
 

I hope to god we don’t go for another yes man so Ashton can carry on controlling the signings. We need a top manager and that person won’t go along with current set up.

 Time for lansdown to redefine ashtons role I think.

I’m unclear why there aren’t more likes. Clearly Tomlin had no respect for LJ. Wilbo let that cat out of the bag.
 

Walsh never given a chance in the dodgiest midfield since we fielded children against Fulham.  
 

the tip of the iceberg!

Why? LJ to me is an arrogant man, and that’s looking from the outside. Walsh was signed by him for a million pounds, put straight into the squad ( and came on) at Man City, is clearly a very good footballer, but was frozen out by Johnson. 

Has had a brilliant season at Coventry and probably didn’t want to comeback and play for Johnson. His stock is high atm, I imagine a lot of clubs would take him off our hands, but now he feels he may get a fair chance with us, now Johnson isn’t here. 

All he is doing is expressing his feelings in a subtle way. Good on him. 

I know of one recruitment analysis team engaged by a club to evaluate Walsh, and progress the steps of trying to sign him.  I suspect that club was either Coventry or Peterborough.  Things have changed, not least club have exercised their one year option.

We will get the chance to see MA in action with a new head coach now.  Interesting times ahead!!!

I thought he was making that sign to his manager. It was both substitutes that setup and scored the goal....could be wrong though
