You gambled big time on getting back out of the Conference at the first time of asking, but you had the right manger in charge and he won you the league that season. If you hadn't been promoted that season I think you would have been in big trouble.

That's a fair point - there's no secret we were boom or bust that season.

It worked though.

I think Johnson would have got any of the top teams up that season. He was that big a difference in my view as I don't think they had the best team. It was a huge gamble to make and it could easily have gone the other way.

Johnson will always do well at these levels as he gets a lot of the talent available from his son at Bristol City,I was suprised Johnson went to C********m but It’s been clear for a long time(since he was at Bristol city) that he chooses location over ambition for a better life balance(lives in Yeovil or that area) which nobody can knock,like Asante money isn’t always the most important thing.

Johnson is a fantastic manager when things are going well - he built a great team spirit with his squad for the promotion season and, as tends to be the case, a great spirit off the pitch led to better performances on it.

However, as soon as things start going wrong, he's the worst man for the job. He alienates players, calls them out in public and starts undoing all the good he did in the first place.

I'll always love him for that promotion season - it was imperative for us as a club to get back to the Football League - but he's certainly no messiah.

All together now - “He’s just a very naughty boy”.

I'm sure like Asante is he was paid well enough.
