  1. I felt this was the most (dare I say) exciting part of the interview, coupled somewhat with his probably less than effusive for some response to the “will you play kids?”-type question, which I felt was logical and pragmatic (basically; I play the best players for both the situation and the player, so throwing young ones in during a rough patch may be unwise). Realistically, this appointment is as much about Pearson deciding if WE are really all-in on progressing as much as it is the club seeing if he fits with us. I can only imagine that if he feels his ability to take what he clear
  2. I’m at a total loss at what to expect. Of the last couple of appointments LJ was I think quite an obvious one, and Holden the complete opposite of that (unless you consider that the club only wants to appoint people they are very familiar with, then it makes sense). At this point, preserving our championship status is the overriding priority mission - not being in league one next year trumps everything, so the suggestions some have made about getting an experienced hand short term to do that isn’t an idea I’m adverse to. However, a small part of me wonders if this isn’t a decent
  3. Still don’t think Holden is going anywhere till end of the season. Not happy about it but think we are stuck with him. Shambles; we are significantly worse than we were start of the season regardless of injuries.
  4. People will roll eyes but the thing to consider right now is the Cotts appointment. He used many of the same players who were here when he arrived and brought in often unsung/odd-seeming signings (the Aaron Wilbraham thread was possibly one of the best/worst examples of the reaction to this), yet the attitude of the team flipped on its head, and we had a distinct playing style and most importantly culture. Yes, things went sour eventually, but that really is the type of change we need, as we have players who should be able to compete at this level right now, at least in my opinion.
  5. He’s clearly a ‘Covid carry’ appointment. A 12 month rolling contact and the signings he’s made (ie mainly short term deals or young players with potential) suggests to me the club made the decision to keep a bit of continuity by going with someone internal but not go ‘all-in’ while the scenario in terms of finance and future changes was uncertain. If he keeps us in the division, that’s fine; then he should be assessed on the quality of football and potential - personally; feel he may get slid sideways/back into an assistant role and a more senior figure appear, or even let go to fac
  6. That sending off is insane. Pen? Maybe. But the idea that’s a premeditated act is beyond comprehension. A genuine “the games gone” moment; total joke.
  7. Just to say; those urging caution in laughing at the gas as we have a very loseable fixture tonight, you can bet your life that they’d be taking the opportunity if the roles were reversed, and with gusto. We may get hammered on Sky by Brentford but I tell you; I’d rather get scalped by a team hoping to make the premiership while being mid table in the championship than get shellacked by a mid table team while fighting relegation in league one.
  8. Now it’s “Three lockdowns, one pandemic, Ben Garner...”
  9. I’m not confident either. Would actually be a very decent game to get a win out of, but sneaking past Wycombe doesn’t bode well against what looks to be a markedly better side. Keep it tight and pray for a Fammy winner off the bench looks like our best strategy again.
  10. I’ve done similar myself before as for the sling and arrows it sometimes gets, Robins TV has done a pretty decent job in my eyes. Plus, you forget how crucial the capacity for replays is when not watching in person; the early stages of plays, or movement away from the ball that lead to goals/incident that you cannot choose to focus on yourself like you would if in the ground adds a lot when watching on TV.
  11. Sky pay for the rights to show championship football and so those of us who subscribe to it having access to the red button games aren’t fleecing the club, just enjoying a benefit of the service we pay for that in turn results in money to the clubs. As someone who stumps up for Sky, my team plays a minimal number of games on their service, so I enjoy it when I have a chance to catch even the Billy basics Red button games as well, and have even paid for a good number of Robin’s TV matches too. So I don’t think it’s a crime to hope that the midweek Sky games are on the red button, as i
  12. Appalling performance. Rotherham happy to mix it up, press hard, and get bodies up to support the players knocking it down in order to profit from the chaos. We look totally shell shocked by them not wanting to give us possession and let us play round them, and absolutely terrible passing most of the time. I’m not sure we’re getting anything here unless we completely change how we’re playing; they still look the most dangerous team.
  13. “We’ve got Sammy Bell...” Rooting for the kid to do well; his dad was a phenomenal player for us. Like the consistency; hope we can play a little more expansive than recently. COYR
  14. Agreed. He has no track record or history there and they aren’t shy about booting gaffers who don’t get results, so he’ll rise and fall on how good he actually is. Don’t get those still aiming shots at him; like others have said, did his best, wasn’t good enough so he went. Sunderland will want to go up ASAP so will either be the making or breaking of him.
