Stuck with a manager who has us a point off the play offs? I can handle that

It’s the annual slide from automatic contention that’s the problem.

we seem to have got ourselves into the mind set that ‘progress’ is defined by how much we arrest post Christmas decline.

I mean the football isn’t great (understatement of the decade). But how do you honestly expect to get a top tier manager in that everyone wants if you send out the message that sacking LJ would right now? He has improved final standings season on season, overseen a period which has seen us bring in tens of millions in player sales, has us out of the play offs on goal difference as it stands. The expectation on the new manager would have to be promotion or the sack? Or would you take a lower league position but pleasing on the eye football?

 

I’d be understanding if we had to break it down a bit to build it back up. Meaning I’d get rid now so someone new could assess the squad for 15 games or so and mould it in the summer with the same backing LJ has received. Playoffs would be preferable next season but depending on results and performances(because I like to balance them) he would get another year. For me this is risky but imo just as risky as sticking with LJ. I get most won’t think this way but I’d prefer to be bold. And it doesn’t have to be a big name just someone hungry and has an identity. I have no names but imagine Norwich and Huddersfield weren’t convinced with the hirings of Farke and Wagner.

They're 3rd Bottom and at times rang rings around us. The league's shows how poor they are yet we struggle to put 2 passes together.

They definitely didn’t run rings around us at any point if that game.

It was

It wasn’t good, but it wasn’t dreadful either. They seemed to get all of the luck with our misplaced passes. Sometimes it felt like we were a man down.

We did just enough to win the game IMO.

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...

If they had a player that could finish we would been f****d today, we looked poor and set out for a win our striker couldnt get lucky on old market on payday but its alright because we are one point of play offs give it 6 games we will be miles off and battling mid table finish

I didn’t think we looked poor, I thought there were some real positives but we did look like a side lacking confidence.  We did, however, create the clearest chances and should have had at least three which would have made the scoreline very respectable.  I thought the game was entertaining and we got three points at the end of it, so can’t see much to complain about.  Three wins out of four, all clean sheets.  Keep your fingers crossed though, I’d hate you to be disappointed by us being successful.

No, it wasnt. Dreadful is getting smashed 3/4/5 nil, not a one nil home win.

Funny you should say that, we performed the same way today as the Brentford game, shows the vast difference in this division. Well happy with a 1-0 home win will definitely take that but polyfilla is definitely not the answer on this job.

Barnsley played some good stuff and we weren’t fantastic but we still created 4 absolutely gilt edged chances and could’ve won by more. 

Personally I’m just delighted we won.... I swear some people on here are happier when we get hammered and they have more to moan about....

You could argue we should be up with Leeds now.

We would be if Afobe didnt get injured... we were a completely different team with his link up play with weimann and palmer.... its so easy to blame the manager....

I mean yeah great shout if it worked. Not sure man if any football club would take the risk. It would send out all the wrong signals

Can there be any other team in the league who could win 3 of their last 4 games and be level on points with a team in the playoffs, and still have fans who would want the gaffer sacked?

Dreadful performance but a win, already discontent with LJ but this papers the cracks against an awful Barnsley.

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

I don't think we were dreadful in that game, just not particularly good at times.

Barnsley looked neat, and tidy; and should have taken at least one of their good chances. That said not many saves for either keeper in the game.

Great save to push Williams header onto the crossbar in the 1st half though, after we had already hit the post througb one if tbeir players.

Yes, we rode our luck at times; but then so did they. Two teams who looked far from clinical in their respective finishing.

Reminded me of the home game against Hull last year (93rd min Fammy winner) after countless misses for both teams. You could see the First team to score would won the game.

3 wins in 4 (yes I know against the bottom 3, but you still have to win them), and all clean sheets.

10 days break, followed by a winnable game at Reading.

It's a funny old season; even Wed got hammered at home to Blackburn. Most teams are much of a muchness.

Hopefully a couple of signings, and Afobe back in March; and we might sneak in there with Kalas back to his best as well.

I'm not a LJ supporter, but hard to make the argument for change at the moment, whilst still being able to grind out results (in the league of course.)

The same GJ days where we've been as successful as we've been in recent memory?

A win but without an obvious game plan and goal shy  - just like GJ was. ...........surely you must see that?

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.

Winning doesn’t necessarily mean a game plan worked does it?

They outplayed us all over the park, moved the ball quickly through the team with players making space and wanting the ball. Switched play at will from left to right and all players 100% committed. WAIT............they stole our identity!!!

They were also woeful in there finishing, yes , you could be onto something Sherlock .
