Well after today's game I have lost all hope on johnson, I think he is getting advice on defending from Tohn Gorman, why oh why did he bring on a striker who is on the light side instead of a defender? This was sheer incompetence we, needed a strong defender to help at the back! In an recent post I said 'the jury is still out regarding Johnson well it's not now!! Sorry friends but for what it's worth, this is my view.

**** hell you just can't win with him can you. At Wycombe he brings a defender on and gets hammered for it, now he brings a striker on and he gets the same treatment Roll Eyes

His consistent picking of Walker is enough for me.

He came in with such a blaze of glory I reckon he felt he had to 'do something' to get us out of our mid-table stupor. Unfortunately his unforced changes have produced the opposite effect and the more he tries to fix it the worse it gets.

Start by leaving  Josh Walker out for the final games.

No lightweights ...players who can defend a lead ( if we had any) and willing to put their bodies on the line.....to chase down and block every shot ( preferably not deflecting it in the net).

Blood & Guts to grind out that win....we can't keep relying on others ( well Barnet & Lincoln) to fail.

The games are fast running out.

Agree about the blood and guts - Holt's got to figure in both games.
Not sure about games fast running out - they're not running out fast enough!

Just got back - I have to agree with the OP.

6 pts from 33 available - shocking.

God forbid if we go down, Johnson will walk.

If somehow we miraculously stay up, he ought to go.

IMO, listening to his interviews and analysing his tactics/substitutes, it's clear that he is here in a 'consultant-type' role rather than our manager. If there's one reason why we'll go down this year (granted there's a few) it will be how GJ has completely and utterly alienated himself from the squad. He's made it clear he'll build his own team next year - christ we hear about it every interview.

There are many who would say that's the only thing he's got right.

Yes we do and we heard it again today. How he is going to sort out the defence first and foremost. Well he's only made it worse so far! Chopping and changing it every week, bombing players in and out.

The thing is, he would be/will be fine with his own players. I have no major doubt about that. His record speaks for itself. BUT he has made an almighty balls up and slowly but surely everybody other than the deluded have come to realise these mistakes in the last few weeks.

I was heading back from Poole (Dorset) today and ironically the 2nd Stockport goal was scored as I was coming up the slip road at Junction 15. I managed to get our equaliser on 104.2 around Milton Keynes. So as soon as I bloody arrive at the place it goes **** up. There was a big group of Bristol Rovers fans at our hotel, down for the Bournemouth game. I didn't speak with them mind, just a few murmurs of 3-1 and you **** it up at the dinner table. Mrs told me not to be so cocky, bless her she just doesn't get it. It did mildly amuse me when I got home and checked their score; they were leading for 80 minutes but still managed to lose. Even we would struggle to manage that!  Grin

you could say that about anyone...surely!!! He made a few great passes today. Unfortunately, the intended recipients had nodded off and forgot they were in a game of do or die football. "oh yeah, ****. sorry Josh. nodded off there mate."

I must admit i was well pleased when we got him and have backed when others have been on his case but i reckon his made some odd team selections and substitions have raised eyebrows to say the least... just pray we can stay up and get a good pre season and wipe the slate clean.

Maybe they weren't expecting the ball as he usually passes to the opposition.
