    I wasnít over the moon with his appointment, and it hasnít been great, but youíre off your rocker if you think heís getting sacked any time soon.

    Not a chance he'll get sacked, he's not even had a transfer window yet

    Try five windows. He can't surely change the playing style until that time.

    He's got to ship out the Warnock style players to buy Warnock style players to play Harris' version of Warnockball yet.

    I for one can't wait.

    Do you actually think that a manager who's record reads W4, D5, L2 and who's team are 4 points off the playoffs is going to get fired if he loses on Sunday?

    Swansea will rip our sorry lot apart.

    I wouldn't even give Harris another 90 mins to find excuses. Awful appointment and the players don't appear to care.

    Changing the manager all the time isnít the answer. The players are not good enough. End of story.

    I think there's every chance that they'll sack him if there are a few more results like this. Reason - this appears to be a serious meltdown rather than a bit of bad luck, and Mr Tan's massive investment could be very quickly reduced to nothing if it continues.
    Under the previous management we might have been dissapointed sometimes, but it never looked as if we were in danger of slipping into the third or fourth tiers. Even under RS we ticked along.
    At this point though, theyve entirely lost the plot giving away six goals to QPR then just about getting a home draw against a league two team. It's a total Fred Carno's on the field at the moment which I haven't seen for a very long time, and once that happens very urgent and decisive action is required or you'll end up like Sunderland.

    Further to that, a heavy home defeat to Swansea of all teams would bring particular pressure

    He has only lost 2 though, few decent results, some disappointing performances, qpr was either a sign or something to come or one of those matches which happen to every club at some point.

    The cup game is irrelevant, the result today is on par with our cup results over the last six, seven years.

    We aren't challenging the top 6 soon but also no worry of relegation. Very much a slade sort of feeling.

    Steady on. We've been patchy at best since November.

    Agree that is unlikely but Trollope only lasted 12 games. In fairness to Harris, his record to date is somewhat better.

    Todayís match day squad showcased over £30m of Ďtalentí brought in by Warnock. If you fancy pointing the finger thatís probably the place to start

    I wasn't enthused by the appointment of Harris and from what i've seen. i'm still not, although i'm going to refrain from being too critical at the moment. I hope that people can see the damage Warnock has done, the wasted millions on dross for players who were brought in to suit his Anti Football tactics. I hope people can now see that whatever Warnock was trying to do was never going to evolve, it wasn't sustainable, it was and is detrimental.

    Changing the manager can be the right answer providing you appoint the right manager. Anyone with any sense can predict how this appointment ends.

    Totally agree with this.

    See Trollope for the best example.

    If given a choice between having Trollope in charge or Harris to take us in the 'new direction' the club are talking of I would have more faith in Trollope producing it. That is how much I rate Harris. Nothing he has achieved up to this point tells me otherwise.

    Not so much the loss of 2 games, but the manner of the QRR loss and following that up with a lucky home draw with Carlisle. He could have lost six games by the odd goal without any danger of the sack, but sometimes unfortunate circumstances coincide and cause a crisis.
    SIX goals in a game followed by a draw with a league 2 team are bad enough. The fact that on this form we're likely to be hammered at home by Swansea of all teams must pile the pressure on.
    Such a thing could destroy all confidence and open the way to a horrible run which could rapidly become a relegation struggle, and my point is that only a drastic move could halt that.
    I certainly don't wish it on Neil Harris, but I can easily see him being the fall guy if it goes that way.
    More than anything I can see Mr Tan intervening quickly if it looks as if his investment is losing value

    Iím so glad Iíve stopped being reactive to every result. Canít be healthy.

    Sadly I fear the atmosphere will be ugly next week if we lose, and that will be the point of no return for Harris (with some of our fanbase). A few have been against him from the off because the board set him up with Dalman's stupid comments about wanting to change the direction of the club then went and appointed a non-flashy manager. They should have been honest from the off about what the next managers job needed to be.

    But he's not getting sacked regardless of what some drama queens are saying. This squad is ****ing shit, I don't care if some of them were PL last season or that they got promoted, the core of the first 11 is different, key players ageing and some of them play like they don't want to be here. A new manager isn't going to improve that despite some fans pie in the sky dream about us playing good football, it's not happening with this side.

    The current situation is entirely predictable, and is directly related to Warnock's decision not to step down after we got relegated last season. There was absolutes no case that could be made for him to stay on for just one season.

    Yes there was, he wanted a ninth promotion and had, seemingly, made up his mind that it would be achieved with a team full of over priced players who would produce Warnockball at a level and intensity never seen before - we got that, but without the belief, spirit and teamwork you'd associate with his better sides..

    Can you tell me who you think would do a better job? As far as I can tell 50% of the fans want passing football and 50% want a return to Warnock-ball but make it more successful, 50% want a longer term plan and 50% aren't going to be patient enough for that, those who want a manager who takes a more possession based style are ignoring that Warnock built a squad primarily based on character rather than technical ability.

    Can anyone remind me how Pep did his first season at Man City? Didn't results and style only pick up after second summer window where he could spend a massive whack on two full-backs?
