                                                         Club Statement Lee Johnson

Following the departure of Lee Johnson and in recognition of the high regard he is held in by many supporters, and the affection Lee himself retains for the club we propose to mark his time at Bristol City in three ways.

1.    From noon today a Facebook page will be available for supporters to leave their own personal messages of thanks and tributes to Lee. Details will be on the club official website when finalised.

2.    Links to a JustGiving Page will also be made available to enable supporters to make a small contribution to a suitable gift for Lee. Suggestions from supporters would be welcomed.

3.    Finally before the home game with Stoke City on 15th July there will be a one minute period of applause by all members of staff and playing staff at BCFC to thank Lee for his contribution to the Bristol City journey. We invite supporters to join in at home and send video clips to the club media department who will create a montage of clips to be made available for Lee and his family to watch at his home.

The club hopes supporters will appreciated these initiatives and participate fully in these tributes.

Code Red. You strike again. They bite again.... like shooting fish in a barrel.

Maybe I'm alone in this....maybe I'm just in a bad mood today, who knows....  but I just don't see the point in these wind up "joke" posts....there's no humour in it, and if anything is just used as a tool to show a lack of respect to someone who, whilst it was undoubtedly time for a change, gave his all for this club and was desperate to succeed with us.

I just find this distasteful, disrespectful and not in the slightest bit humorous, personally...

Completely agree mate.  I just think I'm getting old.  If I have to read another "Is he at the Avon Gorge" or "Alan Curbishly is showing him around his new home"........ 

I just don't have the words to express how much I like this post!

Oh the outrage of it all.................

To add some perspective there are people out there who find £1m+ payouts for sacked football managers extremely distasteful whilst they have been furloughed, can't pay their mortgage and don't know whether they will be in a job in six weeks time.

Comedy is and always has been subjective to be fair.

I mean, some people find Mrs Browns Boys hilarious...somehow.

Hadn't really woken up this morning. Once bitten. Twice shy. But it was funny.

It's just not fair is it...I feel for you,. Personally I'm gutted I can't pop by his Clifton flat and give him a little cuddle.  But there you are- we all have to man up at difficult moments like this.     Have you thought of writing him a letter to let him know you care and that you haven't forgotten him? I'm sure he'd appreciate it.

I think your emotional reaction to a joke is well over the top.

I, and many others by the look of it, thought CR's post funny.

But we're all different, clearly.

What do you find humorous generally, as a matter of interest?

I did genuinely check the OS after reading this to see if it was real. Good one!

I wouldn't put this one past them in all seriousness

I've got quite a broad sense of humour.  In terms of stand up I like anything from the crass style of Jimmy Carr to the groan-worthy one-liners from Gary Delaney to the clever observational comedy of Bob Monkhouse.  Sit-coms such as Fools and Horses, Big Bang, Inbetweeners etc (so again, various styles).  Stuff like Mrs Browns Boys and Miranda not my cup of tea.

I just see this sort of thing though as (intended or otherwise) providing encouragement for people to have another go at someone who has taken a battering already - I just don't see the point.  Like I said, maybe I'm just having a bad day, but hey ho.

To each his or her own.

To be honest I was very surprised we didn't get a tearful joint presser like we did for Johnson senior which would have sparked a lot of outrage no doubt, so a spot of piss taking of a person walking away from a job with a massive payoff who certainly didn't get a hard time from the fans in a real sense shouldn't bother that person one jot.

Loads of players really try their best for the club but are clearly not good enough and are shown the door without sentiment so perhaps the outpouring of grief expressed at the departure is the cause of Code Red's humorous (to some) intervention.

In finest British tradition he will thereafter have to pay for parking.

Jesus I'd tried hard to forget about that.  It was the height of cringe.

Clean break, all the best in future, move on.

Lee gave his all for a quarter of his life to this club and this is how he is treated by the fans on this forum. So pathetic.

Grow up @CodeRed. Why are you so obsessed with the bloke? You got what you wanted, now leave him be.
