  1. Pearson mentioned in his video yesterday that he thought we could be a little more compact, so id expect some work on that in the first instance.
  2. With Pearsons experience as being assistant manager to the England U21's, plus the previous roles that Simpson and Downing held within the England set up, if we can get them all firing on all cylinders and actually doing what they're good at, we might have a decent structure in place already. Part of me hopes that Simpson and Downing are great coaches when being asked to drill a squad over and over a particular way.
  3. I remember seeing the exact same thing. I joked at the time to my wife that they were holding hands!
  4. I remember Warnock saying that also. Wasn't Simon Jordan complaining about feeling unsafe and threatened when he went outside for a smoke? That seems to ring a bell.
  5. My memory isn't so good, but I'm recalling Southampton being dead and buried heading for relegation and City played them for Pearsons 1st game in charge. He had them organised and they went on to beat us and avoid the drop. The thing that stood out for me, was the organisation he instilled. Let's hope for the same here.
  6. I always thought Colin Sexstone did an alright job for us. Was he CEO or managing director, plus is there any real difference between the two jib titles?
  7. That would be up there with Portsmouth paying us to take Pulis off our hands!
  8. I can't disagree with what you've said. I just know that what's happening now isn't working - so where do we go from here?
  9. Paterson is an interesting one, as at this time I dont think we have any others who can play his role. I do wonder if you're right about him hiding is because he's still carrying an injury and isn't 100% fit yet?
  10. I wholeheartedly agree with this, however I think the manager to get that out of them needs to have an air of being able to threaten them. Whether thats sticking them in the u23s to rot, or training on their own, the manager just need a little bit more nastiness about them. If we do have players disgruntled and going through the motions, do we really want that rubbing off on the players who are actually trying? But I agree, we do need a plan, and everyone knowing their roles.
  11. Yep agreed. Put players on the pitch who can retain a ball ie. Nagy, Massengo and even Paterson. Unfortunately, I like Semenyo, but he's so direct, the ball is either lost by him trying to beat a man, or giving it away with no control or a poor pass. We need that ball to stick up top to give us a chance of moving the backline up.
  12. You're completely right. Things have been narking fans off for quite a while, whether it's things like not being able to carry over reward points, or being able to get our hands on the new kit, or having to pay a fiver for club shop delivery, but all these little things just chip away. All this time, fans put up with the smaller things because the football overrode most of the issues. But now the football is rubbish it's the final straw, the atmosphere is rubbish amongst fans, and things like leaving the lights on inside the stadium during night matches, the poor service deliver
  13. Agreed. I've heard good things about Howe, but my own personal gut instinct indicates that he's a thinker and quietly spoken character. At this moment in time, we need someone to come in, organise, give them a bollocking, be prepared to front them out (and in the kindest possible way, I cannot see a woman coach doing that), and get stuck into them. They've obviously got it far too easy to just go through the motions, so we need another "Fred Ford" scenario - for those who remember! (Certainly not me, but my Dad certainly said he sorted them out good n proper!) Therefore, candida
  14. Without repeating myself (too much), I'm hopeful that a lesson has been learnt from Covid and lockdown, and that is no matter what revenue streams are in place, the club cannot operate long term without the fans, and Steve Lansdown has blatantly said that he cannot write off the income shortcomings indefinitely. How do you keep the fans on board? Well you start off by communicating with them (which SL is now doing), and secondly, you have a product that people want to buy, or in our case, fast attacking, entertaining football with plenty of chances and goal or goal attempts.
