  1. Hey @Norn Iron Sorry to hear you are having a tough time right now. I work in mental health. It's a shame you aren't in Bristol as I may be able to recommend a few options. Yes, emojis can be cruel, but I'm sure you'd agree if you were in a better place they wouldn't affect you as they have. As others have said, speak to your GP. I'm sure there will be support groups for carers where you live. It sounds like a cliche, but all things will pass. Sometimes you just need to ask for help to get you through it. People are great if you are willing to let them help you
  2. Play decent football. Kind regards, OTIB Good luck with editing a letter representing 'the view' of OTIB.
  3. Totally agree. The wrong man in charge can set the club back years. The manager may not have the same influence on transfers (thankfully given the shithousery performed by Pulis) but they can have immense negative impact on development of a player and his ultimate saleability. And generally for a poorly performing team all players' values will to some degree be below what they could fetch. Disaffected players will leave and generally it will be the better ones that have other offers, leaving the club with the dross. There really are no cheap options, just wrong ones.
  4. I have immense respect for Dean Holden. To lose a child as he did and talk about it so openly, including how meditation has helped his mental well-being, is still a rarity especially in football. He seems a very genuine bloke and wish him the best whatever the future holds for him and his family. As for the footballing side, he was employed to largely follow LJ's approach so to what extent he is can be considered part of the problem is debatable.
  5. Didn't know about his reticence to play youngsters. Not sure that fits our model. I'd heard about his defensive nature, but not his rigidity on tactics. That said, in other threads the Championship sides under him do seem more attacking. Maybe the pressure to stay in the Premier League and lack of quality in the team made him more defensive?
  6. McInnes has proven himself a success before and after City. I think we were disaster at that time!!
  7. Really only back with Ireland for 15 months in a caretaker role really, and did wonders on limited funds at Ipswich for a good stretch of years. (Though their fans berated the style of football come the end). I think you're thinking of Robbie Keane. Can't imagine Mick and Roy are best of mates after their history with Ireland!! I really like Mick McCarthy. Proper football man. Terry Connor has association with is too so would be good to see him back. I like what I read in Chris Hughton's interview. Like Mick, he comes across as a man of integrity and someone players would
  8. There was a time recently when would have not been happy with Mick. However, I feel like I need an antidote to some of this modern football doublespeak. Working with Ireland he had to get the best from the players he had. I think he would get more from the current squad than LJ has.
  9. Ha, ha. Of course, I see who were replying to now!! As you were...
  10. I suspect SL will have learned from both the experience of LJ and the rugby. He went for experienced proven coach for the rugby and I suspect he will do the same for the next appointment.
  11. That's kinda missing the whole point of a football forum!! I would take the job. But being a rank outsider I'd lay a few bets on myself before accepting.
  12. Check out the OSIB interview. Adel Taarabt spat at one of the female canteen staff at QPR. Senior players including Orr wanted to sort him out but Warnock stopped them because Taarabt was too valuable to their promotion push. Others may see that as good management. I don't. If I recall correctly, generally, Orr didn't seem impressed with Warnock
  13. Bradley Orr didn't. I trust Bradley's opinion.
  14. I was expecting to see 'live' button, but didn't see it!
  15. It is. It's disappointing. I wasn't happy we lost, but one bloody game and for some it's catastrophic. We're still in with a shout of the playoffs.
