    The time spent on that Altrincham terrace p1ss wet through and he cuddn't even be arsed to acknowledge us at the end is still burnt in my mind.
    That was one of my all time lows at Altrincham. Just stood there in disbelief, motionless and soaked and frozen to the bone .

    Hes a smarmy get int he , with his clothes and patter . I didn’t like him

    Id have him back

    Exactly Animal and this might sound a bit naff, but its something I wont ever change my mind on either, my dislike towards the slimy little git.
    Some neutral fans on here might say hes doing well now at a better and bigger club etc. (and this is obviously comparing us negatively there).
    But as you say he/Johnson was very lucky to keep his job here and remember he also took Bristol on an appalling run of losses as well last season and apparently he came very close to the sack there. Bear in mind he was given a bigger and better budget there and had it not been for Tammy Abraham's goals, they would have gone down last season.

    Acido, he’s spent money, but some thought he would fold at BC after Abraham went.
    He has actually, very much kicked them on...... yes, spent money... but kicked on.
    If we kick on as much, and with Hecky, I’ll be made up.

    Some say... (ala Clarkson)
    that he set up the team that Hecky is famous for.......
    Hopefully with some money behind him, Hecky will prove it’s him that’s the talented one.

    And if you say that “Johnson had success with a plan, that was done with players He didn’t buy the players at Oakwell, ( it was James/EASPORTS etc) then explain which EA sports/JamesCryne system has made it happen again?..

    I can’t stand him either. He was lucky, as you say to keep his job here..... But he seems to be building a successful team again, and we can’t deny that he set us rolling..... Maybe the powers that be at our club can spot Managerial talent as good as young, raw player talent...
    Let’s hope so.

    He might be building brilliantly at Bristol Jules, and Im afraid I cant disagree with that as much as I want to.
    BUT, I still go back to him being very lucky to keep his job here and Id like to know what the appeal was to us appointing him, when he was at Oldham and they were Lg One play off wannabes at best.

    Bristol City use the same system of signing players . They try to target under 24s and have a stat based recruitment team. Difference is they will bring in the odd older player if they think necessary

    That’s why we’re always linked to the same players and they’re always linked to signing our players

    Give managers/head coaches a chance and support them through periods of uncertainty and most of the time it pays dividends. What you say about hecky is look at 2017 as a whole and results have been poor. However, you have to factor in certain things like turnover of players.

    Johnson has not had the rug pulled from under his feet so to speak, hecky has. Johnson has been allowed to build on the foundation he had in place from last season without the collateral damage we suffered. Big difference there acido not to mention their superior budget.

    If we survive this season then surely we'll have a few things to build on, that is assuming there's no mass exodus again. Surely hecky deserves that amount of time to see what he can do before there's talk about sacking him. I wonder where we'll be and what we'll be saying this time next year?

    This bugged me at the time Pass when Shaun O'Dismal turned us down for Bristol City, this time 5 years ago.
    Even after he took them down that season and we stayed up, he said he chose them over us and other teams because they were the better and more stable club. (and the extra money must have meant a lot as well!!)
    I dont know what Johnson has spent exactly in his time there but I do know they expected a lot better than a scrap to stay up when he first joined them. And how many losses in a row was it last season, it was almost as bad as the 8 he did with us, and I think both runs of losses were record breakingly bad at both clubs.
    But the chairmen stuck with him on both occasions, which is why I think hes extremely lucky.
