Looks like it is manager hissy fit season.
Bristol City manager Lee Johnson said to BBC Sport:
‘This was a game too far for us. You try and run two half marathons in two days, with all the speed, tempo, guile, skill and environment.”
That`s the championship for you Lee, it`s relentless and you`ll find the same for all teams. Nice try though.
And bafflingly he added, ‘It was interesting to hear the Villa fans mocking us“
Yes, because fans don`t usually enjoy watching their team win 5-0 do they???? It was a magnificent result for us, of course we were in fine voice, oh and the miss a few minutes into the second half was so keystone cops we all thank you for the laughs. (Match highlights – 6 minutes in)
“Bruce flicking the ball all over the gaffe”
Pure comedy! He tried to kick the ball back and miskicked it, to which Bruce joked a bit. This was right at the death. Is Bruce really to be castigated for that?! (Match highlights – 10 minutes in)
He ended “we’re still three points above them. Let’s see where we are at the end. We’ve got to use that as ammunition.’
A fair rallying cry to his troops, however they won`t be above us come the end of the season. FACT!
Thanks for the laughs Lee, I love it when we unsettle an oppo manager so much and thanks for the 3 points and taking the thrashing with such good grace!
