    I doubt that, more a classic case of Chinese whispers. RG plans public update on NP being unwell & away from club for the foreseeable turns into press conference announcing had left due to ill health.

    Maybe this isn't the thread, but these things don't usually happen overnight. On field performances could well be linked to the mental wellness of the manager who sadly may have been struggling for a few weeks. I always got the impression players backed NP, so it could be a case of the atmosphere / culture taking nose-dive recently that brings us to this point. Sad times but we need to believe it's a recoverable situation as it not even halfway through the season, new belief & ideas might just give us a fresh impetus.

    So much for wrestling a wolf, only to be undermined by a bunch of pussies.

    Alex Neil is the most likely candidate, rumoured to be favoured by the board on a couple of occasions and is currently out of work so should be refreshed ready for the fight.
  7. Omg the puns are bloody cringing.
  8. Good point, I can’t believe we couldn’t find an alternative to Martin, who I like but can’t play the game he’s being asked to especially every match full 90.
  9. Mad, like buying a Ferrari & sticking moped engine in it.
  10. That’s what really bothers me, how the hell have we ended up so badly set up as a team at this level? We’ve earned more than most championship clubs in player sales & a wealthy owner splashing on facilities so while FFP is a challenge, cash necessarily isn’t. What a missed opportunity for the club not to hire the right team to manage recruitment & talent ID.
  11. I feel sorry for Martin, he can’t sub himself but it’s painful watching him play the full 90.
  12. Yes the doubt is now firmly setting in.
  13. Hope not but feels like we’re hitting rock bottom - 3 down to one of the worst teams we’ve played. Serious doubts about Pearson setting in now. Shame as I hoped he could make a difference. Saturday was poor but this is even worse
  14. Own up. Who keeps taking a dump in the referees changing room before every match this season. So many games it’s like the officials have it in for us.
  15. The recovery tackle he made 1st half was class.
  16. When you really think about it that quote is flawed. Whole point of training, practicing the same things over & over to get better/different results. Equally, Roll the same dice. Back the same horse. Play same pass. Etc Different result almost everytime.
  17. What hasn't been considered is the mindset of the departing coaches vs the mindset of someone like Alex Ball. PS & KD came across as quite dour personalities who gave the impression of been round the block many times & bit jaded as football people. They also have lived through the sh1tshow all the way since DH, which will take its toll on their ability to lift the group. AB comes across & as a younger, energetic coach who hasn't been affected by the past 18 months. The biggest weakness is our losing at home mentality - refreshing the coaching environment or taking out those who can't lift the spirits is a good call.
  18. They always have & it was always inevitable that gap was going to widen over time. Covid is now accelerating it. But we can’t use it as an excuse. This club has had the time & resources at its disposal to create a well run scouting & talent acquisition model, we started going there but didn’t commit & now we end up with a random group of players. So frustrating.
  19. Here’s hoping. Could be in 19th place by Sunday. WBA a tough test. Preston & Sheff both have very winnable games.
  20. Tonight was our chance to get the home win & would have kept on Wells until the end & tried to keep Scott on longer than we did. The team fought hard, except Palmer & Odowda gave us zero dynamic coming on which I don’t get. Talent & pace but it just didn’t work & we retreated back to our own box. So inevitable.
  21. Agreed, we’re continue to pay the price for Holden’s appointment & keeping LJ too long. How he signed it off I still don’t know. LJ I can see why they tried to keep him past sell his by date, but Holden’s appointment was simply ridiculous, I don’t think there’s single supporter out there who thought it worth any kind of shot. I quite like Pearson & prefer to stick with him for now, but he needs to overcome the mentality that creeps in the last 20 mins of home games.
  22. The location of away fans in our ground is ridiculous since rebuild. Every game, we have to 1-2k away fans shouting your support is XXXXXX sh1t, is this a library & all the other highly original routines & directly at the blocks least likely to respond, because; They have the whole stand behind the goal You can just about hear our singing section from the Atyeo side, but it sounds like they are in KFC, it so feint & as a result doesn't spread round through the ground well enough. Singing section is at the other end off the ground - I used to loved when away fans were next to old wedlock stand, the dynamic was managed. Someone on this thread mentioned about moving away fans to the Lansdown top tier, what a great idea & surely this has to be a priority or at least properly considered. Because; This would bring the family seats down closer to the action and behind our own goal, this will get the kids more engaged. Acoustically, it should reduce the impact of any fans as there technically above the surrounding stands Away fans cans still be contained & the club can still flog them all refreshments they want. The impact of away fans must be having an affect of the atmosphere & performances, the club really need to consider elements like this as for me it becoming a weird dynamic that actually makes the experience pretty sh1t for home fans.
