It was completely shocking. While some fans may have been calling for Payne to be replaced, there were absolutely no rumors in the media or from any kind of source, reliable or otherwise.

It was completely out of the blue and very surprising, considering the Blues' record wasn't even poor and we had played most of our games on the road. It was right before a long homestand, so even the people who thought Payne should be done in still believed he'd at least have through that home stand to turn things around. Apparently not.
