  1. I'd have to say that DH won't have too many excuses if we don't get off brightly. He was appointed partly because "He knows the players and they like him" so he should already be getting his ideas across to players who have bought into his ethos. Any new boss worth his salt should be saying "This is how I want us to play, anyone not up for it or disagree then I won't stand in your way of a move" (as long as it's in the clubs financial interest) The continuity is already there, we've a good although slightly weekend squad, and as long as Fammy and Eliasson are replaced (If they go) then there
  2. Managed to get a sneak preview photo of the board and media team sitting down for tonight's press conference.......
  3. Amateurish to say the least. I've been banging on about this on other threads. A lot of the needless hysteria on here and facefuck could have been avoided with a well thought out and planned series of posts, tweets and news releases.
  4. Take your point Jon, but remember, this isn't a tin pot one man band company(really!!) - This is (meant) to be a multi million pound company with all the relevant CEO, managerial and secretarial appointments that go with it. The media team should have been briefed accordingly (as opposed to being briefed to say nothing) from the top to put out a managed series of briefs, tweets and posts. There is simply no excuse for how they've handled this sorry affair. Irrespective of who the incoming incumbent turns out to be.
  5. Jon, they can't obviously. My point which you have appeared to have missed is that by updating everyone with a simple progress report they could have prevented some of the hysteria which has manifested itself on here and on their own post for the last few weeks. A media team is exactly that, putting out relevant posts and information. The total silence apart from a few player related posts is what's done the damage.
  6. Whoever they appoint or takes the job, the damage has been done. They've shot themselves in both feet by the amateurish inept way they've handled this. By maintaining a total black out they've allowed chinese whispers to manifest into big inaccurate rumours then fuelled by more rumour and supposition. No one asked for chapter and verse but a regular update wouldn't have hurted. Respecting privacy and business confidentiality is one thing but ignoring your 21k customers on whom you rely is unforgivable. All of this was totally avoidable and the blame should lie squarely at the feet of the med
  7. In fairness he is!!!! Also, in fairness to Downsy, he hates sport but loves broadcasting. After the night of the long knives when he was removed from the breakfast show in favour of that bloke Cam Kelly (who has all the charm and appeal of the Boston strangler) The Sat am sport show was the only show on offer to him. My band put on a couple of charity events (The Wrecking Ball 1, 2 & 3) in aid of testicular cancer and he compared them FOC. Great bloke, and up for a laugh.
  8. He probably didn't. They've come to him when all other (progressive, logical, well thought out and slightly more expensive) options have been exhausted.
  9. There's no such thing as an established championship side. Any club who takes their position for granted will get bitten on the arse, like we have in the past. This division is a crackpot one and it's way easier to go south out of it than north to the prem. The minute the hierarchy believe that with our stadium, our infrastructure and our support (when it was galvanised) it can't happen to us, it will. They should be forever progressing and never stopping to accept the status quo. Part of that process is employing the best man(or women, or what ever identified gender the applicant chooses) to
  10. Something's not right at BCFC when people aren't spouting conspiracy theories.....
  11. That's just rubbish. They want success on a sustainability ticket.... or, depending on your view, on the cheap. If the board (or the Lansdown family) were desperate, they would have grasped the nettle and appointed someone who would significantly increase the chances of that happening. You know, someone with a track record, someone proven, someone with a great reputation etc. Now I'm not saying that should be Hughton, but if you're desperate (as you suggest) and an obvious solution to your desperation pops up in front of you then surely you take it... Unless of course your judgement is impai
  12. Knowing you won't be there long......
