  1. Nope - Rudolph's been there already!
  2. Sounds like a straight choice between Alan Titchmarsh and Monty Don then!
  3. How much of a shake up does a team that's been in the top 6 for a good part of the last 2 season need? Many are making it sound like the club needs a revolutionary manager to come in and change everything, which had we been fighting to stave of relegation we might well have needed. I see it that the club has come a long way, on and off the pitch, in the last few seasons and it is only LJ's failings that have seen us fall short over the last couple of seasons, where a different manager/coach would have seen us into the play offs.
  4. Mr. Hughten, have you played in the tp flight of English football? CH: Yes. Have you managed in the championship previously? CH: Yes. Have you achieved promotion to the Premier league as a manager? CH: Yes. Have you done so more than once and with different clubs? CH: Yes Who says we don't want a yes man?
  5. If we had won our first two games after the restart then LJ would still be in charge.
  6. He'd certainly know how to deal with stars. ( I'll get my coat as well!)
  7. Bournemouth breached the previous ffp rules and paid a near £5m fine - a fine being the only sanction then available - so there breach was settled. QPR were similarly punished in resect of their ffp breach under the old rules. Mr Popodopolous will be more in the know than I, but I think Villa's situation with ffp is similar to that of Derby and Wednesday, i.e. while the sale of a stadium did not, in itself, break the rules, the EFL are looking at how the valuations were arrived at and whether they were at fair value. This is not re-opening old cases, but rather that the investigations ha
  8. Until Afobe's injury there were very positive signs of new players bedding in and cause for much optimism. Palmer seemed to be on the same wavelength as BA and Weimann and the player w've needed to unlock defences, Nagy looked a distinct upgrade on Pack and noon could believe how we'd managed to sign HNM ( other than on behalf of Chelsea. We also had Moore starting to realise his potential and forming a good pairing with Kalas. Then we suffered injuries to Afobe and Nagy and although we managed to stay there, or thereabouts until the new year, we never really liked convincing and as LJ t
  9. Where do you stand with the less discerning ladies - although I's imagine there's more lying down than standing?
  10. Mind you with LJ's chopping and changing personnel and formations from one week to the next, playing in our back line must be like speed dating. Hardly the best way to build a relationship and know that you're with the right partner. Can't help but think that Moore and Kalas is the pairing we should be looking to.
  11. Unfortunately, his flights were arranged by NTTDS, so after a quick coffee in arrivals he had to get on the next plane straight back to Glasgow.
  12. 2 rules in our house. Rule 1 : Mrs Downend is always right. Rule 2: When Mrs Downend is wrong then rule 1 applies.
  13. Good Lord! With that management team will we be able to afford any players?
