  1. Spike - I agree basically with what you are saying. SL isn't against an experienced, successful manager in principle. However he wants one who will implement HIS policy of buying young, promising players who we can sell on at a profit to fund the wages. Most top, experienced managers know that is a risky policy that could leave a blot on their CV if it doesn't work out. They want a policy that gives them a guarantee that they can compete. Which means a decent smattering of players in their prime who have proved they can do it at this level or above. Hence we have to go for managers who will go along with SL's policy instead. It's his money so he calls the shots but I wish he would be more open with the fans about his approach.
  2. To me that approach just sounds like the addicted gambler who's lost a ton of money on a fruit machine. If I keep piling it in I'm bound to win in the end. Trouble is you could just end up losing a whole lot more. My feeling is LJ is the kind that just doesn't pay out. Better to cut your losses and move on.
  3. I'm in favour of video replays to help refs but that did take way too long. Would have to speed it up if you had 20k fans getting impatient.
  4. More I watch England in this game the more it looks like they are using the Leicester City game plan.
  5. How the heck are England winning this ? Hardly touched the ball this half yet 2-0 up!
  6. I know exactly what you mean. I really struggle to remember players from the oppo team unless they are already very well known. Last time I can remember a player make a massive impression on me was when Luke Freeman was playing for Stevenage at AG. He was everywhere and I was well pleased when we signed him. Generally I forget them by the time I'm home from the match though.
  7. Jamie Mac said on RB that is would be announced soon. Think he almost let slip where but stopped himself and had a chuckle with 20p about it iirc.
  8. Magners would be the one I would be most disappointed to lose (Tammy aside as he isn't coming back). Still can't work out why he was left out entirely for so long and why.
  9. Well I'm sorry it lacked the insight and devastating wit of your reply.
  10. So do you agree with his statement that he proved he was 'a good manager' this season?
  11. Yep. Lee has told us he has now proved he is a good manager. So he hasn't learnt anything by the sound of it.
  12. I don't feel our squad is really that bad. Looking at Brighton would you be in awe of theirs? I think it is more about having a good manager who gets the best out of them. We had a pretty strong bench at the end of the season and a player as good as Magnusson not even on the bench! Get rid of Lee, bring in a competent manager and a couple of quality players and I honestly think we could do quite well. Unfortunately Lansdown won't do that as we all know. So I expect another real struggle next season.
  13. Maynard scored 20 league goals in 09/10 I believe. Anyone else hit 20 in recent years as I struggle to think of anyone else prolific? Just feels out of character for us to find a proper goal scorer two seasons running. Don't feel overly confident we can manage a hat trick either.
  14. FF isn't helped by the fact that our players rarely want the ball rolled out to them. We don't seem to want to play out from the back - or trust the players to do it. Geifer tried this and they kept playing it back to him until he hoofed it long! I think some of the comments about his performance v brum are also very harsh.
  15. I will risk the wrath of the majority and say I agree with the OP. His finishing has been poor so far and his first touch is terrible - something which is hard to improve. Yes £300k isn't a lot and he does work hard but I'm hoping we sign someone better in the summer who can get the goals we lose from Tammy.
