Oh no, what happened? He's still young so don't be too harsh.

Also, Blackburn!!

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I actually don't know how we won that game.

Another textbook example of our season, a bit rubbish and completely outplayed, but got the points. We're like the complete reverse of Wenger's Arsenal.


Some people on Twitter are suggesting we're good enough for play offs :lol: :roll:

I'll only start to feel safe once we're 12-15 points clear of the drop.


I take it they didn't watch the game then?

Should have laid off at 1-0 for an open goal and went for glory himself, missed then gave the ball away when we were attcking cheaply, they scored from the counter

We're not giving him a regular run so don't want to be too harsh, I guess he's grabbing at opportunities.

No, it's expensive for what you get. And yet, I appreciate having the opportunity to watch the games.

There should be the option to buy all the games and get a discount. £10 alright for a single game now and then but every week it isn't great, still cheaper than a season ticket though.

I assume there's no 'season ticket' as they'll stop showing games when full crowds are back in which may happen before the end of the season.

I absolutely love ifollow was it means I can actually watch the games as I no longer live in Norwich. To attend a game would take a 6 hour round trip and like £75 (though I'd also usually make it a full trip and see my parents).

The injuries really showed tonight. Players are knackered and we can't rotate or sub. We'll hopefully have Teemu back at the weekend which let's us have an actual striker.

We had a massive squad at the start of the season so it's mad. We also don't have any youth players to really come in, as any youth players on the cusp of the 1st team squad get loaned out for a season and then brought into the fold the following season having had decent 1st team experience, which means the youth making up our bench are 18 year olds who weren't yet ready to go out on loan.

Good wee run coming together here. If Dack comes back alright and we hold on to Armstrong through January we could be in with a shot at the big one.

Waiting nine months to go to a game and then leaving early... this is football heritage.

The word on twitter is Lee Johnson will be coming in at Sunderland.

Please tell me encouraging things, City fans.

Not a City fan (or a Bristol fan), but I know one thing.

Lee Johnson doesn't draw games. He either goes on winning runs or losing runs.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Considering we draw every bloody game 1-1, Streaky Johnson might not be a bad thing.

He's loved by some City fans and detested by others.

I am more in the love camp. His losing runs are horrible but we did improve with him and that win over Man U will never be forgotten.

Just read about Millwall fans booing the players taking a knee at kickoff. Makes finally winning a game by beating them extra satisfying :datass:.

Good to see Milwall fans are still a bunch of strawberry floating banana splits.

He was OK at first, but it always felt like Johnson was a mid tier manager and didn't really have the ability to take a team beyond that. He generally seems to run out of ideas after a season and then needs to move on. I don't think he is a disaster by any means, but he isn't going to really push a team forward.

Pretty much this.

One mention that he holds our Record for our longest losing streak.
