Lee Johnson

Most of Lansdown's cash has gone on the ground and the rugby. Their transfer business has been largely self-financed.
According to Bristol City fan Fordy62 Johnson was allowed to spend millions and millions on a lot of dross. Fordy62 was very annoyed that Cotterill had been allowed to spend nothing and was sacked four months after taking City to the League One title. In came Johnson and the chequebook was suddenly wide open. Clearly Lansdown's friendship with Johnsons Snr. and Jr. was one reason he kept his job so long despite his decidedly mediocre record.

f***ing hell, don't forget to take a breath whilst you're spewing all that out


well that's nonsense as we've got out of it many times, mostly recently without any effort at all
Not in the last decade we haven't, since riches have filtered down from SKY and there are now many billionaire owners in the Championship. When The Irish took us over, there was no real competition financially.Wolves , Bournemouth and The Mags had massive wage bills and spent millions.

Though I suspect you were being a wee bit facetious, I'd imagine Royston Keane and his players would be slightly despondent to hear they put hardly any effort in. :) ....and Mick Mac. Great management at that level from the pair of them.

In 2016/7 (Johnson's first full season), they spent about £12.5m, mainly paid for by the selling of Kodija to Villa. 2017/18 £7m. 2018/19 £2.5m. 2019/20 £8m. Hardly last of the big spenders territory. Source: Wikipedia.

They spent about 8 million on Tomas Kalas alone last season so I'm not sure if that's right

As recently as January they were splashing the cash on Nahki Wells from Burnley. Wells had been on loan at QPR and Warburton had been desperate to sign him but he had to admit they couldn't compete with Bristol City's spending power.

They brought in £43m in that season. Lansdown has not given him the money - it's come from incoming fees. Cotterill got nowt because nowt came in. Lansdown is as much as sugar daddy owner as Mike Ashley.

Johnson was to Lansdown as Joe Kinnear was to Ashley; terrible but his favourite. Cotterill was treated appallingly by Lansdown, sacked after delivering far more in his first eighteen months than Little Lee did in the next four years. We'd actually have been much better off bringing Cotterill back here after seventeen years than bringing this miserable failure Johnson in. Shrewsbury fans have more reason than us to be contented tonight. Johnson was pampered by Lansdown. Well he's got a rude awakening here!

You've got a short memory like, we got out of it only a few seasons back and i stand by my statement, we put in no effort at all.

Fuck Phil Parkinson mate. Nothing should be compared to him. Woeful manager, woeful appointment. Nothing else even comes close to it.

Streaky lee
Grayson can be. Ross was slightly better. Johnson is of a similar standard. I'm not expecting a good manager to come in, baring in mind our current standing, just don't expect me to get excited over a much of a muchness.
