  1. I don’t think Holden had a say in those appointments at all! It’s all very shart worthy saying they’ve just met & happened in last few days. Maybe staff used to working under the FA won’t be bothered about interference & DH is just used to it. Fair play to Dean, he said the same thing in nearly every interview but you can see why they would have taken to him if he said ‘we never played Benkovic, Palmer. Stopped doing 352 etc vs say Houghton who would have a much less knowledge of our players and given an overall summary. Hardly fair really to assess someone who’s spent 4 years vs someo

    The frustrating thing is that all these sound bites are exactly the same as when LJ was appointed. The ‘outstanding’ candidate etc.
  3. I guess Holden did play Benkovic, maybe KP too if not injured. Dropped O’Dowda & did 352
  4. This has to be boll#cks *prepares bedsheets*
  5. They are pretty open about how they work with the salary cap. Some astute signings at Championship teams on lower salaries, players not getting opportunity at their clubs for good value (Thacker etc) plus the odd marquee signing. Pat is pretty hands on with it & is one of the reasons they didn’t get Genge despite Genge saying on the phone to him ‘but for £500k you get the best prop in the prem Bab’ he doesn’t believe in overpaying players apart from unless they are really worth it, not just on the pitch, the culture etc. I’d be extremely surprised if it’s Bris
  6. Still reckon there’s a twist in the tale yet! Proper weird goings on, see what tomorrow brings
  7. Why was the drone up today with the media dept working on something? Yet DH is taking his tome to mull over. I’ve been told, still, to expect an announcement tomorrow (Saturday).
  8. Was told an announcement likely to be tomorrow earlier but with betting suspended may accelerate it to tonight, but it’s happened before
  9. If Hughton does still come here, they gotta back him, let him do his thing & step back. No point appointing him but giving a load of weird restrictions, you aren’t actually getting CH then. Externally yes, but it would be setup to fail from the start and DH would make more sense in that regard.
  10. Perhaps it extends beyond transfers & into other things like team selection suggestions (interference) too
  11. They know about the first banner 100% the arrogance is outstanding
  12. During Coppell’s short time with the club & it has been well publicised he had some issues with similar goings on at other clubs like Man City. Do you think he was not fully aware of the input from those above, the David James signing for example may have put his nose out of joint & thought bugger this & walked?
  13. If Holden appointed but allows budget for a top notch signing alongside would you take it? Vs Hughton and having to work with what we have?
  14. Gregor’s job is to get people to click and view the articles. He’s deffo doing that! If the club are giving nothing away he’s got a job to do still & at least it gives us all something to talk about. You do have to take nearly all of it with a pinch of salt & read the wording carefully, it’s no more news than you get reading here. It’s just because it’s from a publication which in these days we are sometimes the journalists for the journalists - embedding tweets etc. Fingers crossed for a positive outcome. Gut feeling is Gregor may have pushed it too far with yesterday’s article &
  15. Massive opportunity now with Fulham gone too
