This depends who we get in really doesn't it. If we get in a manager with no experience at this level then maybe stupid.

If we bring in mick McCarthy or an foreign manager like Bielsa then no.

I must question, how much do neutrals know of him. He got a bit of positive media coverage when we got to league cup semis, but generally our slumps in form dont make the newspapers or national radio so doubt they know too much about him.

They also haven't sat through one of the most dull seasons I've ever experienced as a fan

They dont know how much money LJ has had available to him and how much time he had.

3rd longest serving manager in the EFL says it all.

Lets see those fans give a manager four years of promise to then utter capitulation year on year.

Often the way though isn't it? When West Brom sacked Darren Moore I couldn't believe it, I think they were in the top 6 at the time.

Yet my Albion supporting pal said he was relieved and 'you don't have to watch this shite every week'!

They don’t see what we see.

 

A different team and formation every week

A very talented squad achieveing nothing

The most unentertaining football I’ve ever watched 

That being said I thank LJ for his work, there were some massive highs early on and he has consolidated us as a championship team.

The neutrals have not watched our standard football over last few years.  The times I left the gate feeling I had watched a decent game or performance from us are minimal. The lack of action, no shots on goal, crab football, I can go on. 
He talked the talk, but did not ‘walk the walk’. Thanks for the cup run, perhaps find a job abroad.  We need winners.

Many of my non city supporting mates thinks we are mad to sack Johnson and are very unrealistic in our expectations.

Time will tell I guess

Gasheads, change your mates

Just as he’s unveiled by SL as our next coach ...

Outsiders and even the poorly informed media still say things like “bright young coach” and “his teams press high and play nice football through the thirds”.

Its easy to say that as an outsider looking in probably knowing very little about the toxic football and toxic atmosphere around the club at the moment.. Lee Johnson has been given MORE than enough time.

Most of my friends were similar until I explained he'd been manager for 4 and a half years, spent over £30 million, and only managed to transition us from a relegation scrap to comfortable mid table.

They all agreed that with those resources and that much time, we can expect better.

Pretty spot on in their assessment tbh. 
sky sports tweeted he’d been sacked. A Leeds fan couldn’t believe it saying it was a mistake until I put him right on a few things . Just shows you don’t know that much about other clubs really

That’s because of the cup run which everyone watched. They didn’t have to sit through it every week

The club contributed to this - they pressed this narrative. But even they, in the end, realised it was nonsense.  I've said on other threads, Johnson (and Ashton) are masters at self promotion, talking the talk, legends in their own lunchtimes, despite having achieved nothing.

Most non City fans are thick as shit. We are a big club in this division now and underachieving. 

We’re actually 1 of about 5 or 6 clubs that have never played Premier League. So not sure I agree to be honest.
