4 years of Johnson. Nearly 60 players. And this is what he has produced. Total crap. Johnson OUT NOW. 

Hope you all noticed how Johnson ignored the fans at the end and just walked off the pitch. 

He’ll take the plaudits when we win ....

He was very very good at the start before he got injured

He did but have teams seen how to stop him from playing well I wonder?

And do short light players at this level need aggression to make up for their lack of physicality. Pearson, Bannan etc.

My Hungarian mate who generally loves everything Hungarian and would usually be bias told me he's weak and not that good when we signed him. I'm beginning to think maybe he is right!

But then let's face it, everyone is playing badly. Something not right for that to happen when we have a lot of talent.

All creativity is being coached out these players with the exception of Ellison all of them look to pass backwards or sideways as a first option.

Although I thought Kasey did ok today he was also ultra cautious.

And this against a mid level Div 1 team.

You are 100% correct my friend. Let's see if you get as many aubergine's as I did?

but, but, but we are a few points off the play offs and made year on year progress, our box entries are up as well, blah, blah, blah..... come on we should be smashing this league by now its the manager thats holding us back but no doubt he will blame the players; who in fact need managing and a couple additions added.

Says something about the performances.  No movement, no touch, picks and chooses when he’s gonna try. Afobe showed what we’re missing up front in the few games he played, liberating not only the creative midfielders but bringing the best out of Nagy as well.

Fam scored today , was completly isolated up too , and comparing him to a known championship goal scorer who is a different player with a different play style proves nothing .

He seriously hasn't. He's the biggest problem to this team creating chances.

Total lack of movement into the CORRECT areas.

Deep he's fine, occasionally in the six yard box he's fine. It's the movement just in front the box that's the problem.

He literally gives very few options.

Instead of watching that today, came out and watched this for 90 mins. Very similar performance and formation, but cost and mental pressure free... highly recommended.

Few people hope we lose at anytime. The constant comment implying that there is a phalanx of supporters hoping for a defeat is a fallacy.

We are awful. We have been comprehensively out played by multiple clubs recently and we were played off the park in periods by Shrewsbury. Those are facts, not innuendo   ........

Sigh. It was very very poor today. Don't know what to say truth be told...

I've been a big supporter of LJ during his tenure, there's been so much good. Wasn't so long ago we were beating Man U at the gate and everything was roses. But what it boils down to for me is Johnson is just NOT getting the best out of his players, not by miles. You can say all you like about tactics and formations, but surely a manager's bread and butter must be motivation, confidence building, and playing to the strengths you have by bringing out the talent of the players you have.

And what talent there is in this squad! But not one of them is operating anywhere near their potential. Case in point how he's messed around with Elliasson all year, not knowing what to do or where to fit him in, when he should be putting him first on the team sheet, and building the team around his strengths.

I'm sad to admit it but I don't think Johnson can take this team any further. He's done a terrific job, but he's hit a wall. It may take a while, probably all summer, to figure out the right replacement to take us to that next level. For the interim, I'd take a punt to be honest. Recruit Warnock until the end of the season and see what he can do. You can say what you like about him and the 'history' involved, but I don't care about Cardiff or Palace or any of that history, I only care about the future and what he could do for City. And I think what he could do is bring an entirely fresh approach, by first and foremost getting them playing for the shirt again. He'd get the very best out of the huge talent available in this team, of that you can be assured. I feel pretty confident that he'd lead these players to a higher finish this season than with LJ in charge.

 

👏 Excellent post. Sums up exactly what I’m thinking more eloquently than I would have put it. Such an exciting squad just not performing. It’s only going in one direction, with motivation and energy at rock bottom. With our infrastructure I hope we can attract a top end championship manager to have a crack this season and if we don’t make it, kick on further next. It pains me to say it but I think time is up for LJ

But our amassed not inexpensive team looked ordinary against a mid L1 team. They’ve looked ordinary in the last 6 or so games, so yes we didn’t lose, but really that’s clutching a straws now

Pathetic. Whilst I probably do agree a managerial change is needed, never ever ever ever ever in a billion years would I wish for us to lose. 

I've spent my whole life supporting this club, I support them in the good times and the bad times, no way am I ever gonna wish them to lose, that goes against the principles of being a football supporter.

Let's look at this in context. It's the FA Cup, why is the FA Cup worldwide famous? Because lower teams can make bigger teams look ordinary. The lower teams are more motivated.

I'm a football fan. The fact is we are in the 4th round hat, we still have the chance to get a huge tie in the 4th round and whilst we are still in the competition I'll continue to dream of that rather than wishing we lose.

What I saw during the last few games is the following as a kind of outsider (so not tempted by the love / hate of LJ, maybe a little with the affection for Nagy):

1, Nagy: he makes mistakes like he never done before. Maybe only once per season and that’s it. He seems to lack confidence which he also never did. Maybe that ankle isn’t 100% at all and he has to adjust to that but mostly I think it’s due to my 2. point as his positioning and awareness hasn’t changed.

2, Most of the times I can’t see the point of the attempted attacks from the team. When the midfielders try to quicken up the attacks (mainly Brownhill and Nagy) in 90 % it fails. Today apart from those 2 big misplaced passes I was watching Nagy closely: during the first half there were at least five occasions when get got the ball, passed forward and run immediately to get it back and fastly go on with the attack. And he didn’t receive it back, because everyone was twisting and turning, including Palmer.  So he runs a lot eventually for nothing (most of the games) and at the end I think it tires him mentally therefore the mistakes. At least half ot these runs should end as at the Fulham game but since then attacks seems so slow…

3, The overall technical quality of the forward line bar Eliasson’ crosses is quite poor.

4, Based on what I’ve seen I agree with those who think LJ reached his limits, also seems a little arrogant to me at times. A coach should fill his players with confidence and clear playing strategy based on what his player can do.

At Ferencváros when Sergei Rebrov took over rumour was that the players were all puking after the first few trainings so I was afraid they might play against him. And voilá: after 15 years he got us to the EL group stage and before Christmas our skipper gave and interview and said ’He’s a hard man but we got behind him as he has clear vision, everyone knows his part, his duty on the pitch. We won’t be buddies but we respect the hell out of Rebrov because we know his methods ( be as painful and hard as they are) are bringing trophies and success.’
