Clearly a split in the camp starting to appear...

Look. Johnson's fcuked up big time since he stormed in like a bull in a china shop. But I believe now that the players are playing for him. Which post Accrington and Bury was most definitely a concern. So I *think we can safely say that the lads are trying for him. Interestingly, and injuries have played a part...but the central defence on Saturday was the same as when he arrived. So in 11 games its gone full circle!

For me, your central defence is the most important part of the team. Get that right and you can build. The first thing he did was stick a right back there soon followed by a left back and a loanee. And shuffle, shuffle and shuffle more. Whilst fullbacks are obviously defensively important, the central defenders can still bail them out; it doesn't happen the other way round. I could go on but hopefully most will appreciate and agree that you rarely get a successful football team at any level with a large turnover of central defenders. Net result; our defence is now shot to bits and the damage to it was done weeks ago. We simply have to take the attitude now to go out and score more goals than the other team. We have no bus to park. Johnson should have listened to Bungle weeks ago...

But regardless of what division we are in, I will state my case again that Johnson must stay. He's won the BSP; if we go down to that level, get over it. Because we have someone here that if forgiven, would stand a far better chance of taking us straight back up than yet another new comer.

Johnson doesn't do defence, thats the problem. Thats why he scuppered the mighty POSH this season, and why he's likely to scupper you.

The most bizarre signing is that of Gary Coleman from you lot and GJ attempting to disguise him under the name Nana  Grin

The mightly (are you sure?) POSH have conceded 73 goals this season, that's 3 more than we have! I don't think we need any defensive advice from you!

A lot of teams that actually get out of division attack there way out - Dag & Red, Rochdale, Bury, Notts County so looks like we're on the right track...

42 conceded in Tragic Johnsons 21 league matches in charge.
31 conceded in the 23 since he got canned. Given a bit of a transitional period where the defence had to be sorted out (shifting that useless pile of s***e Nana for one), problems obvious.
As for mighty, well these things are all relative, but its a sorry time when the only team there is to contend with us for local bragging rights is the filthy franchise.

GJ likes to play attacking football, something along the lines of if they score 3 we'll score 4. The defensive side of the game doesnt appear to be his strong point, and so it shows, we've leaked goals left right and centre consistently and there is little sign of it slowing up anytime soon.

Problem being Mr. Johnson, we are in a relegation battle, playing these tactics is suicidal!, we are having to score 2 just to get a point at the moment, just scoring 2 goals in a game can be hard enough at times. This is our downfall, not shutting up shop at the back and our only emphasis on defending comes at the wrong time, no good sittting deep with only 5 minutes to go and inviting envitable pressure, which of course means our poor defence buckles under that pressure - it usually only ends one way. The priority should have been the defensive side of our game the minute GJ came in, but with that not being GJ's game, we're now in the deep stuff.

Just wanted to have my say as well in regards to tactics.  Firstly, whoever thinks Walker had a 'good game' on Saturday are completely in the dark.  He was awful.  He couldn't complete a pass, didnt track back, caught in the wrong places, he was completely out of it - dreadful. 

Also, I'm lost to know why we would stick Andy Holt up front when McKenzie was injured.  Would it of not made sense to have stuck him wide left moving Bauza upfront or even at left back hence pushing Rodgers further up field?  Bauza is clearly our most influential player at the moment and he needs to be in the thick of it - i.e in the centre of the pitch behind Harrad, not stuck on the wing!

At least we had centre backs in centre back positions and full backs in full back positions.

Let's be positive.  Under GJ, we have lost 2 less games than Lincoln, and have gained 1 more point than them.  The fact that every other team has better form than us over the same period is irrelevant.

And to prove we can top the table, look - we've beaten Histon!!!!

Just so everyone knows, as GJ asked all those that criticise him not to go to Sixfields, I ain't going to spend all that time and effort getting to Sixfields again 'til he's packed his bags and gone to crash another club (pity Peterborough saw sense so quickly).  Happy to support them away.  But, I'm not paying money to keep a hypocrite in a job.  (You know the one - 'lob a few hand grenades into the dressing room', 'build my own team', 'they're not doing what I tell them', 'I had to lose my temper with them', 'the penny's starting to drop with a few of them', etc)

Sixfields, here I come....

Just how many players did Johnson get through from the start of pre-season last year? Out of interest
