Bristol City lost 2-1 at home to Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship today, and plenty of Robins fans were left fuming at manager Lee Johnson.
After missing out last year, Bristol City were expecting a top-six finish this season. They’ve recruited well in the past few years and did so again last summer, yet after this weekend, Bristol City now sit in 12th-place of the Championship.
They’ve so far lost both of their games since the restart, and with eight games remaining they now have a five point gap to make it into the top-six.

Johnson has been no stranger to criticism this season. Even as his side were sitting in 6th, teetering on the play-offs for the majority of the campaign, the 39-year-old has been blasted by fans throughout.
Today’s result has seemingly thrown Bristol City out of play-off contention, and plenty of fans think it’s time for the club to move on:
We have promotion aspirations.
Lee Johnson is not the man to get us there. A few goalfests and a run of dodgy 1-0 wins after Christmas have massively flattered this squad.

First time in LJ’s tenure that I’ve thought his time is up. This squad should be making the play offs comfortably. 20mil worth of strike force, 8 mil cb on bench. No identity for quite some time. Best players want to move on every summer. Need a consistent season ASAP

Time for a change now, thank you for the memories but all the best @LeeJohnsonCoach

That was pathetic, devoid of ideas, toothless in attack. We consistently look like we need a stroke of luck to score a goal because we have zero creativity. No win in 7 for this squad isn’t good enough. First time I’ve said it but, time for a change.

It’s criminal this squad – rich in talent – will fall short of a Top 6 spot.
At this rate Warnock’s Middlesborough will finish above us.
Johnson has had long enough, but will always fall short at this level.
No more ‘jam tomorrow’, a proven manager is must for next season.
