Honestly, can you really, honestly see us employing an experienced manager? Please tell me when that’s ever happened?

Oh...I have no confidence we'll appoint a manager with the experience we need! I'm saying what I think needs to happen. We're in the hands of 'trust me on Tinnion' Steve...

They will want somebody who can work in the pre existing structure and I suspect the caliber Of manager who we crave for, would want to come and build his own structure and back room team. So it will be Jamie Mcallister then.

People calling for LJ's departure should remember that SL has a shocking record of appointing managers. GJ being the only success, and he didn't come with much of an impressive CV.

In the extremely unlikely event of LJ's departure, expect another unimpressive appointment. 

SC was not SL's choice and he couldn't wait to get rid of him to bring in the wonder kid. 

Despite all the fantastic ground improvements adding value to his assets, SL has failed to build on Cott's success and the club's momentum and is ultimately responsible through, in my view, the ridiculous appointment of LJ, and for where we are as a team and our lack of progress.

I'll take another unimpressive appointment. Because whoever it may be can not possibly be as negative and damaging as the current appointment.

I'd welcome Appleton tomorrow quite frankly. Or anybody.

Yeh we've had experience and managers with little experience. Not sure it makes a big amount of difference actually. Seen so many times inexperienced managers get teams up and experienced ones do badly.

It's about the right fit and moment. And in fairness LJ has taken us from relegation certs to play-off contenders in his time. But unless he can sort things out quick then I think a change is coming this summer.

No I'm right. And I'm right because I replied to a comment questioning mine and others commitment as fans because apparently we were more interested in seeing Liverpool play.

At the weekend I questioned who are genuine fans when they want City to lose in order for LJ to be sacked.

Two enitely different things, that I've proven above. Goodbye, your blocked.

Pathetic, can’t debate or accept differing opinions so ‘block’ - your first three words in your post above sum you up - and it’s ‘you’re’ blocked - pathetic ...

Sorry but I listened to LJ trying to shift the blame again tonight, the idiot should be a frying pan, he seems to think nothing sticks! All the rumours were given some belief tonight, he tried to shift the blame on to the head of recruitment! No other out routes available! We do have some really good players, problem is he is such an idiot that he does not see that every one if those players know he is out of his depth! 
you cannot seriously base your team selection and tactics on some computer model, players are human beings and we have to credit them with some intelligence!  LJ has been found out, once again we have a squad full of talent, but totally devoid of belief in the manager leading them! 
we have to demand better, we are entitled to better, SL needs to have the Blinkers removed, fans need to wake SL up!

It really is as simple as this.

Get a grip, a cup run is at the bottom of our priorities. 

To be frank, i thought it was top priority today, as we have little realistic chance of playoffs IMO

I was not at Shrewsbury, so  followed the game on the text commentary.

It was littered with "Shrewsbury commit a foul" or "City awarded a free kick".

Was the referee being over zealous or was it Shrewsbury's plan to play it rough and knock us off our stride? If so it worked and now our Championship rivals will know it too.

And I couldn’t give a toss.

The FA Cup has had almost no meaning for at least a decade now. This result means about as much as a pre season friendly.  The manager knows it, the players know it.  This result shouldn’t have the slightest bearing on how we judge LJ and the team.

Im sure some old folks on here will try and tell me the FA Cup is a proud competition etc. But really, it’s a relic.

I want LJ gone as much as anyone. But this doesn’t provide the slightest bit of ammo

Not even with a probable loss of a quarter of a million pounds for the club!

Yep our esteemed head coach asked us to ‘judge him after three transfer windows’ - how did that work out?

Just wait until it's 30!

Well I’m bitterly disappointed- but not enough (yet) to call for a change if manager. Just to be clear; I’d be more disappointed if we lost against Barnsley.

Defeat against a lower league side is always hard to take - especially with a juicy tie against the best team in the world waiting - but really, for ME, the league is far more important. 

Win against Barnsley and we could be another step on our way to playing Liverpool TWICE next season - not including cup ties. 

If I were you I wouldn't hold my breath, no way is LJ going to take City into the play offs,  or the Prem  I'm 74 and apart from the old Alan Dicks days in the old First Div, which were great, I will never see them in the Prem and I am willing to bet all my assets and life savings on that!

I'm not too fussed about the cup but I wanted the win just to have two consecutive wins and the confidence that brings to get on a winning run in the league - which is obviously much more important.

I suppose the upside is no more distractions from the league games, but losing to a L1 side won't do much good for confidence. It happens every season to a lot of teams but its still a bummer when it happens to us.

I didn't see the game but it seems like we played a bit better than of late but couldn't convert a couple or three very good chances. Hopefully they can build on the better play and put some chances away on Saturday, they'll need to as Barnsley are in a decent run of form with 3 wins, 3 draws, and one defeat lately.

Yeah it felt like a perfect opportunity to win three on the spin, which, with the glamour cup tie, could have rejuvenated our brittle team.

Now it feels like the Ashton Gate pressure is back on.

It won't have gone down well with the board.

I will be surprised if it makes any difference to SL, he seems determined to believe that LJ will be the best young coach/manager ever.

Eh??!! That was a sincere post, dunno why you took it like that ... I do appreciate reasonable responses especially when disagreeing with someone - it’s good to debate stuff and realise others have differing views, sorry you didn’t realise that and weren’t able to take it in the way it was intended ...
