  1. That’s the point isn’t it? People, including players, can be ignorant. Being in the south west is not an asset when recruiting players. You’re far better basing yourself in the N West, Midlands or London with loads of options on your doorstep.
  2. Do we know whether it’s Hummel again? Looked back at the original Hummel article and it didn’t state whether it was more than a one year deal.
  3. I’ve never heard a pro footballer make comments like that. It’s so true and so damning. Here’s the problem... Millwall have two goalkeepers who show more professional pride than our entire squad. This guy obviously wouldn’t put up with being in a changing room with our lot and Frankie Fielding must see City as unrecognisable from strong team unit Cotts built. NP needs to get 5 or 6 strong characters into the squad to turn the tide. Hopefully force the rest to up their game.... or at least support the young uns.
  4. Spot on. This is it. We’ve always got plenty of quality, technical players... we recruit positions but not personalities, characters, roles. Where are the leaders, organisers, chips are down players... the winners? Worse still our polite, shrinking violets are being expected to teach our younger players. That could be damaging. This is down to recruitment and the person who has the final say... the head coach needs to ensure there’s are good blend. That might mean signing a technically less gifted player because of his presence and leadership skills. A fully fit Bailey Wright-type
  5. Good riddance to her.... weak insipid tea = weak insipid football. We need a strong, robust builders brew maker. Roll on the vigorous, rigorous tasting process.
  6. Better still.... behind both goals
  7. Give it take a year... sadly I wouldn’t bet against it.
  8. I really hope NP does well but fear he might be too little too late... this run and last couple of years has a familiar feel about it that ends in relegation. Hopefully NP bucks the trend, rebuilds and gets us pointing in the direction... it’s not going to be an overnight job!
  9. Nice to hear him taking about promotion. Last manager to do that was Cotts who achieved it. I get fed up with all the “aiming to finish as high as we can” “year on year progress”. He wants to get the first team into the Prem no mucking about or distractions... that’s the job. Good luck Nige!
  10. I broadly agree with that but you’ve still got to be relatively sure he’ll play a decent number of games otherwise you’ve a regular baker shaped hole in the squad or have to pay for someone of his standard to cover him. Tricky. I reckon he’ll be let go... when fit, as you say he’s as good as we could expect to find at this level.
  11. He’s a funny one. From the outside seems to be doing a great job but I’m not sure their fans are all that warm to him at times....
  12. Interesting read on his time at Leicester and their lack of injuries.... https://www.foxestalk.co.uk/topic/123544-dave-rennie-sacked-by-br/
  13. Actually this time last year Reading weren’t much better than we are now, we’re they? I’d definitely settle for seventh next season from out current position!!!
  14. I’d settle for 7th right now
  15. The previous poster stated SC was the longest serving manager whilst at Burnley. He was. It’s a fact. Whatever other opinion you, he or I have... that one point is a fact. Most things on here are unprovable opinion that’s the beauty of it. Everyone’s opinion is valid. SC was great for us but I doubt we’ll ever see him back. I hope NP can be a championship version of him....
