So no other club have swallowed LJ's spin/bullshit. The poor sods have no idea what they have let themselves in for.

They don’t.

Just read snippets on BBC Football of his press conference.

’ I like possession football but it doesn’t have to be 60% , maybe 52% to 54%’ !

WTF.

He is going to be more than good value on BBC Radio Scotland on a Saturday night!

Unlike down here with many more clubs and a much bigger population, football fans in Scotland do actually listen to managers interviews even though they have no connection to the club - the radio phone-ins have the potential to be epic.

Billy BS got another job . Has anyone with zero achievements ever lasted so long . 

You go steady there BW - when I recently suggested on here that LJ had ‘zero achievements on his cv’ I was leapt upon by the cancel culture/snowflake brigade because apparently he won the Leasing.com/Papa Johns Trophy ... oh well, what an achievement ... 😳🍷😱

Took Bristol City to a National Cup Semi Final for the first time since 1989.

What was it about those who challenged you that made you think they were cancel culture/snowflake brigade?

Or is it just that the Daily Mail/Telegraph has told you that anyone who disagrees with you about anything is ‘cancel culture/snowflake’? 
 

Just trying to understand your apparent view that anyone who may have ‘supported’ LJ is a snowflake/cancel culture and how on earth it’s related.

That's actually brilliant :laugh: Hadn't noticed that. It shows how tightly they have these angry blokes by the balls, that every time someone disagrees with them it's now part of the liberal lefty agenda :laugh:. ****ing mental thinking.

Was his 60:40 with Pep, possession bullshit?

Zero achievements?

coached at a time where our players were going for fees like we have never seen before regularly. You may not like him but to say he never achieved anything here is wrong

Weak thinking really. Going on the Daily Mail website to find out what your opinion is on something is weak minded

Don't bother mate, some on here believe he is the antichrist and won't have a good word said about him. What's even worse is that generally it has less to do with his efforts in Management or on the pitch, but to do with the way he looks and talks.

Such a pedant that they can't handle when someone corrects them.

There is a certain irony in undoubtedly the most pedantic member of the forum taking exception to being corrected on something! 😳🍷😱

“As a Manager, I like to go 3-0 up and somehow end the game in a 3-3 draw. I especially like it when we are a couple behind to push up to the halfway line and then pass along the back four continuously without threatening to try and get back into the game. Possession is the most important statistic in football. If you can’t be in position, be in possession. I felt connected to the Hibs project very quickly. I am looking forward to getting stuck in and embedding the process.  We’ve got a team of players that naturally fit my style and of course we are going to have to recruit to try and enhance that.  You’ve got to confuse players, stick with your favourites, ask them to play in the cage and never make a substitution until the 82nd minute. We’ll need to consult the Tombola which 9 times out of 10 ends up with me having to substitute a forward for a defender when we are 3-0 down. Whatever happens we must keep possession and sign Tammy. Hopefully the fans will get used to us dusting ourselves down and going again. We need that level of consistency. "

Did you not celebrate it when we won the cup in 14/15, when there were 70 odd thousand fans there? What about in 2002 at the Millennium stadium ? Is that irrelevant too?

Cancel culture my arse. You are just talking shyte

Well fair play, it’s nigh on impossible to have a lower opinion of Lee Johnson’s ability to manage a football team than I do, but for the life of me I can’t think how pointing out he won The Papa John’s Trophy means you’re part of the much feared ‘cancel culture/snowflake brigade’.

What a truly absurd remark. Potentially the maddest thing I’ve ever read on this forum to be honest.

I’ve never said or held the view that anyone who supported LJ is a snowflake ... strange assertion that ...

So you think winning the Papa John Trophy is a major achievement? Fair enough ... I don’t feel I was ‘corrected’ because I don’t think it’s a major achievement ...

I’ve said on here before, I went to all the finals of The Football League Trophy in which we were involved - but I saw them all as a day out and I wasn’t that bothered if we won or not, with the exception of the 1986 one, because to me that was a real statement about how we were on the way back after 1982 - and the emotion that poured out of Terry Cooper after the rollercoaster of the previous few years just meant so much. But, as I’ve also said on here before, two City fans sat in front of me at the 2000 final, when we lost to Stoke, were in tears at the final whistle - and they not youngsters by any means - I couldn’t believe that and I just can’t get too excited by The Football League Trophy competition - and now we are not in it, it seems loads on here ridicule it annually too ...

You’ve conveniently added in the word ‘major’ here when before you were just talking about ‘achievements’.

Just listened to both the announcement press conference and his first interview.  It looks like a good fit.

A couple of Brentisms, but a bit more humility too.

Had a listen myself. Likewise, good fit i think. He knows what he's doing. Another club that looks relatively good on a CV and a chance of European football, which i think is the big draw for him.

He definitely practices amd preaches the 'modern football manager'. Comes across a bit too textbook still. Hoping the Hibs fans arousal levels are within the threshold for the coming season!

Hmm. It is a trophy nonetheless and you trying to delete it is only to try and degrade Johnson’s CV presumably because you don’t like him. Very odd

Blimey, and I thought I was the pedantic one - ok, I don’t believe winning the Football League Trophy as manager of Sunderland when your opponents are all from the bottom two tiers of English football plus a group of youngsters looking for experience from higher clubs, is an ‘achievement’ ... Happy now pedantic one?

I never disliked LJ at all, ever ... just to make that clear - he obviously loved our club but he just wasn’t up to the task of getting us promoted - we seemed to be in with a shout at New Year each season then we plummeted to the depths each time ... I haven’t tried to degrade LJ’s cv - he has zero achievements on it - that’s all I said, and it’s pretty true ....

It's not true.
