  1. I had a great day. Was in Cardiff with my Cardiff supporting friend as it happened. The same day that Cardiff were relegated from the Premier League. Day of dreams.
  2. He’s got to get this done. Problem is, I have a nagging feeling that he doesn’t want NP. He’ll have his eye set on a project, where he can claim that he’s spotted him and helped the development of a coach. If we go up under NP, it’s Pearson’s success and no one else’s.
  3. I’m a bit worried by the comments earlier this week that we had one or two longer term projects lined up in the summer, which didn’t come off but might now. Nige wasn’t one of those projects. Robins may well have been, or Lowe at Plymouth. Now Nige is here, with his feet under the desk and a running start on next season, we’d be stupid to look anywhere else.
  4. Don’t worry mate, the pubs are open soon. We can all head to The Winchester till it blows over.
  5. In education he’d have a hard job getting a second chance. It would show on his DBS and would then be up to the individual school to make a judgment. I certainly wouldn’t be staking my school’s reputation on an employee with that on the record.
  6. One of my issues over this is the total silence from City. Surely they’re aware of the debates and discussions. Wouldn’t a sensible thing be to face up to it and give a statement, even a written statement? It would show there’s been considered discussion and might allow some to move on. Right now, I still feel disappointed in the signing.
  7. No. To me, it makes no difference if his partner is at peace with it. What it teaches is that you can commit DV, try to evade your punishment, show no remorse and then still remain with your partner and get a high-profile job. Doesn’t seem right to me and sends the wrong message out.
  8. You’re accusing everyone of being wet-wipes, but don’t know what he did? Strangled his gf. Then used his money and position to get his sentence reduced - no remorse. For me - no remorse = no second chances.
  9. Was he fave for any current Premiership jobs? I remember him being mentioned for us and Celtic. Maybe a clause saying he couldn’t go to a Prem club this season?
  10. I agree with most of the comments here. They were bad appointments, my reasoning behind the post was about why these appointments were made. Did Covid have a bigger effect than we thought? Were the top candidates actually unavailable- Pearson (ill), Cook (contractual timings), Bowyer (wanted to give Charlton a chance), Gerrard (pipedream)
  11. Find it interesting that three clubs who appointed new managers last summer, are three clubs who have sacked their managers this season. Us with Holden, Bournemouth with Tindall and seeming Birmingham with Karanka. Does that say anything at all or just coincidence? Are the three clubs basket cases? Or was the standard of candidate actually available in the summer very low? Or is appointing a manager just a crapshoot?
  12. He reminds me a fair bit of what Adama Traore was like a few years back, maybe in his Boro days. Fast, goes by people but can struggle with that final decision and frustrates. Also, both are good at cutting in from wide positions and just love carrying the ball at people. If his career follows a similar arc, he’ll be ok!
  13. He played wider in the second half, and scored. Pearson’s version of “wide” for Wells seems to be very different to Holden’s. Whereas Dean played him on the left wing, Pearson still asks Wells to get close to Diedhiou and Palmer, but run the wide channels. Second half was more of a 4-3-2-1 than a 4-5-1, dropping into a 4-5-1 when out of possession but a 4-3-3 when attacking. As many say though, it can’t really be described in numbers. Just notice that Wells’ role, even out “wide”, is different to what Dean was asking him.
  14. He’s just put out a tweet where he’s tried to tag two people: Bristol City and Tyreeq Bakinson, but tagged the wrong accounts for both of them...
