  1. Was already on the downer, hence Reading got rid. He didnt get worse when we signed him, Shorey used to be quality, but his legs were well gone.
  2. I miss getting together with mates more than the football itself, as that was pretty much the only thing this season was good for. Certainly didnt go to be entertained, for the most part.
  3. For me, as a kid and a very impressionable one at that, the one who always stands out for me is Shaun Goater.
  4. Can give Robins a lift with him when he comes back imo.
  5. The argument being that other teams have been cucked and we're probably spending 40% more on wages (at minimum) to climb 12 league postions? - in which way is that a poor argument? - This is arguably the the weakest this league has been, barring Leeds and WBA for some fair few years. Lets be real, the only current positive under LJ at this moment in time is the league position, as you state. However - The football is poor, and for the supposed ethos we wish to implement has been ditched - thrown aside if anything Our defence in total cost us circa £20m. Taking the above into account, you take any nuetral(s) to City's last 20 league matches and said to them, 'where do you reckon they are in the league?', I'd honestly be be surprised if any of them said top 12. To be four years in under any manager and not have a defined style besides 'busy bees' is shambolic. If my argument is awful, at least give me something to debate with instead of just stomping out league position as the be all and end all argument - this is the championship, us being in the top half is in no way a given until I see that games played count being 46. The reason I say that is, I have no faith, as things stand, that we'll be top 12 based our perfromances as I whole this season and LJs consistently negative tactics at home.
  6. His own butchered pre season and the decision of bizarrely getting rid of Allen may explain that to be honest. Not even going to mention the shitshow of a tour of the US in preseason. Derby had the same luck with injuries as well.
  7. Id argue the only difference between when he took over and now is that his defence then were on about £25kpw between the 4 of them. Now its probably closer to £70kpw. The attacking football is worse, the midfield have the same problem (even if Brownhill stayed). Teams around us have got worse, been smashed by FFP, or been mismanaged, i.e. Middelsbrough, Birmingham, Stoke, respectively as examples. We have no identity since peaking two seasons ago. Sometimes you have to follow the club to get the full picture ala Villa with Bruce, McCarthy at Ipswich, Moore at WBA, and others.
  8. Adkins, Robins, Hughton, Schmidt, Poyet, Di Matteo, Sanchez Flores, McCarthy, McDermott. All options. Personally I would get Darren Moore off of Donny's hand. But thats just my heart, not my head. Did a cracking job at WBA considering, still dont understand why the sacked him. Has proven he can man manage, and doing well at former currently. Head says Roger Schmidt. Do I think we're that ambitious? No. Nice to dream tho.
  9. If the ban of betting sponsors on shirts go ahead, would a company such as Dunder realistically remain a sponsor? Would be interesting to see a local firm on the shirts. I.e. Poplar etc.
  10. On the same train of thought. I beleive Frank was an U21 at Kobenhavn before taking the Brondby job. Whats the name of the Liverpool U21 boss? Critchley? Would be in similar vein to Cooper at Swansea, in terms of an appointment?
  11. Seeing other peoples suggestions. Id actually take Jokanovic or Adkins. McCarthy an outside end of season dark horse personally - criminally underratted in a similar manor to how Cotts was before he came here. Dont know why the latter gets shouted down. Did fantastic at So'ton, two promos to PL in a row, , Reading were a basket case, had to clear out at Sheff Utd, and got Hull back in the top half with near no backing.
  12. Fuber


    Mods, for pointless threads like this, can we just delete them?
  13. Heart - Roger Schmidt (unlikely). Head - Hughton. Realistically - Adkins.
  14. But Morris was still more experienced having coached the U21s, and done well in the role. Jones is also older and finished UEFA badges under Mourinho as the latters chief fitness coach.
  15. Gerrard. Gary McAllister. Rangers. Nagelsmann, bought back Gisdol, who he did some badges under, as an advisor. Lampard had Morris and Jones, who both have done their badges and coached at Chelsea for years. Howe did his coaching badges under Kevin Bond iirc. All of them have had input and development from managers much more experienced than them. It can work for other younger managers who are willing to learn and adjust accordingly, but most of those examples are managers who know their stuff, and more importantly, such as Lamps, were at least leaders as players. Ainsworth with Dobson. Alex Neil has Steve Thompson on his coaching staff, along with Jonathon Gould. Any younger manager is either good at man-management, or surrounds himself with people to help them improve.
