  1. Jesus I'd tried hard to forget about that. It was the height of cringe. Clean break, all the best in future, move on.
  2. In finest British tradition he will thereafter have to pay for parking.
  3. They're all crap. It doesn't matter who you use you will be chasing them and they will be doing sod all and blaming the other party's solicitor. Sorry. Best advice is to get one recommended by the estate agent or mortgage broker as they can at least apply some pressure.

    I can see the points but I look at it the other way. I'd like a manager with enough experience, judgment and justified self confidence to be able to say No to Ashton, Lansdown and his idiot boy whenever they are wrong because he knows better. If we can't find a manager who knows football at a first team level better than that trio we're in trouble right?
  5. We just need to pick the same shape and selection for a few weeks and not confuse the players with bull. The players are good enough for top 6 IMO.
  6. I'm not a massive Ashton fan because he talks businesswank but I think he's done well with transfer deals. Selling Flint for £10m and getting Kalas for £7m. We got approaching £15m for Kodjia and £17m? for Lloyd Kelly we replaced him with Dasilva who I think has at least as much potential. We sold Brownhill and Pack but we then signed Massengo and Nagy and had plenty of change. I think those two will come at least as good and have potential to go further than Pack. There are other examples. The reality is with FFP that we're going to have to sell when bigger clubs com
  7. You can disagree with someone without being at loggerheads particularly when that person is the one in charge. I think it's premature to write them off is all.
  8. I can understand the point of view but I listen to the perplexing waffle that came out of LJ every time he spoke, and the very different communication that comes from Holden or McAllister when they spoke, and I can only put the muddled tactics, confused selections and inconsistent performances at one bloke's door. All I'm really saying is that guilt by association doesn't necessarily follow for me and I think I'd leave it up to the next manager to decide.
  9. Well that's fair enough but wanting a fresh start is different to saying "x, y and z are the problem" which I think is a bit unfair. Personally I tend to think that a fresh start is more likely to be required when the players are in open revolt against the manager or have become completely demotivated but for all the faults I'd point out in LJ's running of the side, motivation and effort were never among them.
  10. So far all you've got are polite expressions of less than total disinterest, they don't mean anything. And as for John Terry that's laughable, he's got zero experience and far too big a profile- poor fit for us all round. Be patient and don't get carried away.
  11. I am interested to know how people who think Holden and JMc are part of the problem arrive at that conclusion. It's not like you've been involved in training, match prep or match days to make any observations unless some of you are players in disguise? I think it should be for the new manager to make their own mind up.
  12. What I wouldn't give for that...
  13. I think it's pretty standard after a big event that there's a period of silence whilst everyone lets the dust settle. Any statement you get now would just be "we are working on this and will update in due course". It's unusual for a dismissal to be followed by a swift appointment and there is no particular rush right now. It may be that the club want to see who becomes available rather than just who is available immediately. They may have prepared for this, but I think it's more likely they had all their eggs in the LJ basket so some time required probably. Better to get it right than get
  14. It is a concern, some players will only respect those who have played at as high or higher level than them - at least to start with. A very good leader will sort that out quickly but it will make it harder to get started.
  15. My memory says Taylor but this was about 1999 and I think I was drunk that year.
