Out of work, but depending on who you ask, it might not be that way for long.
Bristol City sacked their head coach Lee Johnson over the weekend following their loss to Cardiff City, and with Blues still searching for their next boss following the decision of Pep Clotet to step down at the end of the season some people have been putting two and two together to try and see if he should take charge at St Andrew’s.
Johnson’s managerial career can really be summed up in two sentences. It’s been relatively successful, in that he has won more games than he has lost and his teams have scored more goals than they have conceded. However, his Bristol City teams have been known to collapse at the end of the season, never quite managing to get that sought after promotion.
So he succeeds on one count of the Blues apparent managerial search with his experience, but doesn’t that promotion on his C.V that they’re asking for.
Would Lee Johnson be a good appointment for us to make?
And when @Blues_Focus posed the question to fans on social media whether or not he would be a good appointment for Birmingham City to make, opinion was pretty split on that view.
Big yes for me, developed a good squad buying young players and selling for a profit. Think he had a zero net spend at Bristol (if he was in charge of transfers)

To be honest he’s better than some of the names I’ve seen

Yes for me. His team played good football, just ran out of steam late in the season. Has achieved more than some being linked.

No thanks! 😳

No for me. Would like to see an up and coming manager given a chance. Gareth Ainsworth, Keith Curle, Mark Robins. Bowyer would be my first choice.

No, we are taking cast offs again whilst Bristol look for an upgrade

What about you? Would you take Johnson at St Andrew’s?
