  1. I hardly think his star sign is relevant here.
  2. Can't quite see what your not understanding. No one is saying that the sales make him a good manager they are saying that we had money to spend because of those sales. And if you were man u manager and set old Rashford for £50million you'd want to spend that money replacing him.
  3. This point last season we were also 2 points outside playoffs, 9points behind 2nd and 6 behind 3rd. To save everyone looking this season we are 1 point outside playoffs, 8 behind 2nd and 4behind 3rd.
  4. What a stupid post, if you are going to make a whole thread how a bit of thought first? Afobe doesn't have a bad injury history infact in his career he has had very few serious injuries. (Here is a link to his I jury history). And people are not arguing that Afobe and Palmer were some incredible revelation simply that Palmer needs a forward like Afobe (who will run in behind and has good movement in general) to be most effective.
  5. I wonder if this has anything to do with the pre agreed fee. It was implied at the beginning of the loan that we have a very good price agreed as part of thd loan deal. Presumably if we terminate the loan we lose the deal.
  6. Is there a link to this? It's hard to know who is saying what a d if you are quoting the the post or LJ in places.
  7. Don't think I'd agree with that, whether he gets them right or wrong LJ has never been somone to shy from making a change.
  8. Not completely impossible that this is Bentley Hunt William Baker Dasilva Brownhill Smith Wieman Paterson Elliasson Fammy
  9. Happy to be corrected but I thought they were all here thought LJ arrived after thd window closed. Memory does play tricks with these things though.
  10. Don't think this is exactly true he has got the best out of plenty of players - some he has, some he hasn't just like most managers. Flint, Bryan, Kelly, Webster, Reid, for example all players who moved on as a result of him getting the best out of them. A few of those examples haven't had the same success elsewhere. Also when he arrived he kept us up with the same players that had been struggling. I think we are like most other clubs and LJ like most other managers in this respect.
  11. Firstly I'm sure we were at least amongst the biggest spenders in league 1 in our promotion season, I'm pretty sure we might actually of been the biggest spenders. In spite of that I don't disagree with you SC should have had more time and couldn't definitely have been backed more. I think he did an amazing job but just becuase we got that wrong doesn't mean we can't move on from there and not make the same mistakes. LJ has improved every club he's managed and then moved on to a bigger club. Just because he hasn't had a promotion doesn't mean he can't or wont.
  12. I think the football has been awful in this current bad run of form. Its not been the best this season overall either. I definitely get and respect this argument and think you can make a good case for entertainment over results. Personally I think the kind of manager who would get us playing more attractive football would be best served with a transfer window and preseason. The manager suggested to come in now all play dull football despite having a more proven track record. It think given everything we are better sticking and giving LJ the season unless we actually do drop out of contention for the playoffs.
  13. Massively under achieving by being 1 point adrift of where most people except our current level to be? Or if you want to set our standards higher than most expected pre season 5 adrift of 3rd And thats your idea of massively under achieving? We're on a bad run our worst of the season but its not forever! Want to know who is in worse form than us? Preston, Cardiff, Blackburn, Leeds. We are on our worst run of the season and we are mid table in the form table! The level of overreaction on her is insane! If after the the reading game when we were unbeaten in 9 games I'd started saying we were going to walk the league and no one can stop us you say I was an idiot just reacting to a current good run of form! And you'd be right! It's a bad run and its not even as bad as some of the teams around us and above us!
