  1. As someone has pointed out already, some of his stuff here is pretty funny. He and Yannick were at the club together for a grand total of three days. They probably never even trained with one another!
  2. I think as long as his focus is on the non-football stuff - and I'm sure this will be the case with Nigel Pearson now in position - it looks a superb appointment.
  3. Amazing it's not broken down yet.
  4. I think if someone can knit our posts together the nail has been hit firmly on the head IMO.
  5. As I said in reply to you the other day (I think it was you, but forgive me if not), nobody can be certain of success. I definitely have doubts. It just feels really reactionary to have changed opinion based on the very little we’ve seen and in the circumstances he’s inherited. So, I do find it incredible and it’s a view I struggle to understand or empathise with, but one I respect all the same. And the one thing I’m sure we will agree on is that whatever path the board chooses let’s hope it leads to success. It’s not about points scoring between fans is it? We’re on the same team.
  6. Ultimately, though, the reason he was brought in - and the reason fans overwhelmingly supported the appointment - was because of his vast experience, know-how, understanding of the game and previous success at this level. None of that has changed because we’ve lost a few games, so why would he suddenly now not be the right option? I find it incredible, though not at all surprising, people have been seriously swayed by what’s happened in the past two months. A team that was losing prolifically has continued to lose prolifically. It is giving them a headache in terms of the timing of a
  7. A "knee injury". Yeah, alright Nigel.
  8. I’d have Bob the Builder up front ahead of Famara at the moment. He doesn’t want to be here and has sacked it in. While I take your point let’s still be careful to remember, though, the volume of goals he’s scored at this level and that when he’s on it he’s a decent player at this level. Last night Akinfenwa, at 38, scored his first ever goal in the second tier.
  9. I think it’s very hard to judge him on the situation he’s inherited - again, simply because of the vacuum he’s walked into. A third of the squad is injured and half of the squad are about to leave the club. That’s fairly unique. I just feel at some point you’ve got to stop whizzing through managers because they’ve not done it after 10 games and put faith in someone that’s been there, done it and is proven. Nigel Pearson is that. I completely understand the reservations about Pearson the man - some will like him, some won’t. That’s fine and I certainly respect that opinion. And can I
  10. Why Nigel Pearson? Because he knows how to win promotion out of this league and has had success at more than one club. Controversial opinion: I don’t think the situation is anywhere near as bad as people make out. Granted, we’re having a shit time and the playing squad is a mess, but with 14 out-of-contract players and the chance to restructure recruitment with Mark Ashton leaving, I think it’s pretty exciting to see what happens next. People forget how quickly things can change and the blessing of our situation is that change is now able to happen. The manager overseeing that has to
  11. You can tell by his touch and awareness of what's around him there's a player there. It'd be interesting to see him after a full pre-season. As I've said previously, though, I think he's hard to properly judge without seeing him live IMO.
  12. Henri Lansbury's class is gradually beginning to show the fitter he gets. After a fairly atrocious start to his time here, he's definitely given the club a decision to make in the summer, I think.
  13. Because I love a stat, I also quite like this... We scored as many goals in our last meeting with Walsall as we have done in our past 15 home games combined.
  14. I wouldn't worry, I'd wait until it's on the official website.
