  1. I guess when you’ve been backed in the past and been on a similar run it must give some confidence the club will stand beside you
  2. Interesting comments from Holden yesterday; ‘we owe it to our fans to put some smiles on their faces’ I expect we’ll go out to entertain tomorrow night , be interesting to see team selection, Palmer , Eliasson I would expect be selected.

    Arne Slot

    I guess he may see us as a stepping stone to bigger and better things. I’d be surprised if we were to get Hughton I just think the way our club is set up won’t appeal
  4. I’ve mentioned him in another topic, his name has come from nowhere. I’ve looked at the names linked to both us & Birmingham - He hasn’t been linked with them by the bookies.
  5. I don’t like that statement for two reasons: 1). SL cried when told Lee was sacked this clearly was not discussed at board level and Ashton made a decision, and reads like without consultation 2). All the signings made by Ashton or the ones who didn’t work out made by Lee

    Arne Slot

    A new name on the betting field Arun Slot: Slot played as midfielder for PEC Zwolle, NAC Breda and Sparta Rotterdam, and begun his coaching career in 2013, working as a youth coach at PEC Zwolle for a year, before being appointed as an assistant coach at Cambuur, a position he held until 2017. He was then hired by AZ as an assistant to John van den Brom, before being promoted to head coach in 2019
  7. I agree the expectation will be top six not season, whoever comes in will have to hit the ground running. I believe we will have a new manager in place for Saturday to assess the squad at matches and training ready for next season
  8. Whilst I understand your comment about statement of intent - no manager is guaranteed to succeed despite what they may have or have not achieved in the past. I mentioned on another thread , Chris Wilder - teams managers prior to Sheffield United - Alferton, Halifax , Oxford & Northampton hardly inspiring. Sometimes it isn’t the name it’s the fit he’s taken them from league 1 to competing for a European slot. I’m sure there were many fans complaining about his appointment at the time.
  9. I think he’s our number one target , like @Kid in the Riot says has a relationship with the club / SL. Coming to us after getting Coventry promoted - no reason to suggest he couldn’t be in charge by weekend, their season has finished once compensation agreed. Can see him leaving Coventry , the club is in a mess and makes his promotion all the more successful
  10. Simon Jordan ranting about this on TalkSPORT , if this is true it raises questions about the integrity of the whole fit & purpose test He mentions about Palace having the floodlights turned off because the results weren’t going the way of Far East betting
  11. Talk of Rafa or Pochettino are ridiculous - was going to mention Howe but he had a link to the club and ended up with a good budget
  12. Why does everyone say we need a ‘proven manager ‘ - we need the right man for the job, regardless of whether that’s is Lowe, Hughton or anyone else. Look at Wilder at Sheffield Utd , he’d managed Halifax Town & Northampton, Dyche was sacked by Watford. Hardly on the face of it inspiring choices
  13. The problem with Rovers is they want to be us. They know they’ve got an owner who won’t / can’t finance them. For them the highlight of their weekend is when our result comes through and if we’ve lost. We’re light years ahead of them
