It’s my opinion that you don’t win a game in the championship without a game plan.

One may not be able to see it or even agree with it, but there would have been a plan and ultimately it worked. 

The substitution played a big part, although O'Dowda didn't do much he created space for Dasilva to do that run down the left wing which resulted in the winning goal

Third from bottom Barnsley didn't  deserve to lose that against a very poor City.

You'd best go and support Barnsley then, cuz you've never got anything good to say about City!

Today was a mirror image of GJs days.........No obvious game plan and goal shy.

Sorry, but that’s nonsense. The game plan was clear and I don’t think wayward shooting qualifies as ‘goal shy’.  Barnsley were a very decent side except up front and we had to work very hard for what in the end I thought was a just-deserved win.

If we won 3 nil and played well some would still moan that we didn't score more for our goal difference ... how dare the team win and make other potential players want to join a team in a play off chasing team... regardless of who is in charge... 

 

I think you are wrong there, nobody would have moaned today if we had won 3 nil of that I'm pretty certain, but it does sometimes feel some posters are never satisfied but don't get carried away they are very few and far between.

Why do you want the manager who has is level on points with the top 6 and 3 points off 4th place out..? Seriously..?!

Barnsley weren't a poor side but considering how people keep going on how we are only 1 point outside the play offs, we'll use that analogy shall we?

the table doesn't lie. Barnsley are down there for a reason and despite evidence our side trying, it was hard work getting those three points and not convincing whatsoever. Like most of our wins this season.

A scraped 1-0 win against a struggling side that financially has no clout whatsoever.

Evidence on here proves far too many are happy with that than look at the bigger picture. One reason why this club will possible never go up another notch

Because he still doesn’t know his best formation or players brought in over 60 now spending millions. Point bring you can’t be promoted with as many baron runs as he has

Goal shy..? We could easily have scored 7 today, with shooting boots on. 
Hit crossbar twice. 
Fammy should have scored 2, possibly 3. 
Elliason missed a Glorious chance shortly before he scored.

I do agree as there are now average 20 ,000 fans at each game plus the ones like me who work saturdays ... this is just a small portion of fans online but my post was in response to the theme of the original post.

That was far from an awful Barnsley. Very impressed with them.

Agree a Barnsley that have beaten millwall and drawn with Swansea and wba in the last month. For some reason we should always beat the bottom 3 in the championship 3 or 4 nil.  Although not the best performance some luck. Whilst out of form  you need to grind out results we are doing that. It is far from perfect but the ; league game losing run (brentford aside) addressed a previous 4 on the bounce losses. We are in the mix so enjoy the ride

I suggest the Press Association person writing that is basing it on passing and pretty passing at that.  Thought it was an even game, and we had some good chances, probably the better of the chances. Or a Barnsley fan?

Not missed a home game in 20 years, just telling you how it is, we have been appalling to watch at home for 18 months, a win is a win which I will celebrate like any City fan but everyone around me are fed up watching this boring directionless football.  A stay of execution is about right.

I applaud your dedication, but unless you have inside information (Stay of Execution) is a tad presumptuous and a little disrespectful to LJ.

Great 3 points though today and another step closer to the play offs 👍

Way I’m starting to look at it is... we’re not that good, football over the last 10 games has been average, rank terrible at times....and yet we’re still in the mix, so no expectations fact is we’re not great but if we keep pulling out three points guess I’ll take that. ****in get in today.

"Stay of execution"? 😂

I must admit it is kinda cute that people actually think LJ has been, or is close to being, fired at any point this season. 

He didn't get the sack when we'd lost nine games on the spin and were plummeting towards relegation in March 2017. 

He's hardly going to get sacked after three wins in four with us in the play-off hunt with pretty much zero chance of going down.

If we finish 9th or 10th then... name me a realistic and available manager that would be as certain (as you can be) of taking us higher..? 
Although predicting we will finish lower than we currently are is pure negative conjecture, after 28 games, imo.

Thinking back, it wasn't actually a bad game to watch. It was a bit scrappy, and both sides looked lacking in front of goal. Them particularly, as they missed more chances.

3 or 4 against the woodwork, a couple of scrambles in both boxes. I actually enjoyed today. Look, we won and we all know the next few games are harder on paper.

I'm holding fire, getting behind LJ and the players, and seeing where it goes.

It's drink up thy whiskey tonight for me as we got another league win.

**** Barnsley, as they thought they were going to heap the pressure on their former Judas boss  and it just didn't pan out like that

What a shame!

Standard / quality -  poor

Action and some comical moments - not bad

Thought it looked like a bit of a nervy game between two relegation sides near the end of the season

 

I think we continue to look muddled and in a bit of a mess but 3 points and the odd positive though

True, Bob. Very true, and that's how I saw it. Concerning for lots of the game, but another 3 points on the board. BTW, The Championship this season.. How bad is it?  :laugh:

It was pretty much there for the taking, if any club had really gotten their act together. The quality is shocking.

Said the same thing so many times recently Appy

The Championship is certainly very even this season with not one standout side 

Any side well drilled and organised would get auto this season

My biggest frustration with LJ - we’ve had some decent opportunities to cash in on other clubs messes in last few seasons and this season when we should be benefitting from giving him time and SLs backing when any other manager would have been fired  we are in real danger of blowing another golden opportunity (IMHO) 

My concern is we won’t have such good opportunities as a few clubs reset and may be missing an opportunity of a generation

and who are coming down... Norwich, Villa, Burnley Bournemouth.????..   people who know how to go up...   I'm with you on this, Bob

LJ or SL though, Bob?  Lack of a striker has never been addressed, and you cannot tell me that we have a manager at the helm who couldn't really care much whether we sign one or not??   Are the owners really prepared to back LJ when we talk GOALS?

Yes , a good point and the sort of thing I fear 

As you say you’d expect most of them to be a force if they come down and a bigger hurdle to bypass

Below us are some big clubs who have the potential to reset and push past us

Need to grab our opportunities whilst the window is ajar

Next season (20-21) will be the first season the horrible £25.3m losses won’t be in our FFP calculation (will be 18-19, 19-20 and 20-21), and 18-19 was a profit.

Agree that this season was a good season to do it.

Money / financial wiggle will help Dave , and without reviving the LJ debate , but you then come onto the question of whether LJ can deliver even with more financial wiggle 

£4 million Kasey Palmer was sat , completely on his own in a row , at the end of the Lansdown Stand today , slumped against the wall near the Barnsley fans

Sad to see - it really isn’t looking good for him here 

We can’t afford players of that value not forming a part of a match day squad, whatever the rights or wrongs , or reasons , now, or in the future

Two clean sheets. Playing without our A List main striker for most of the season.  Just outside the play offs.

Don't be so dramatic!
