  1. Think we will line up something like this (don’t think Whiteman will be thrown straight in) - Iversen Fisher Huntington Davies Hughes Ledson Molumby Potts Browne Barkhuizen Maguire
  2. Think what we are seeing with football clubs at the moment is the new variant is making it a lot harder to isolate/contain the virus within squads, instead it is spreading around training grounds.
  3. Iversen will be starting. Ripley is terrible and Rudd's injury forced us into the loan market to sign a new no.1. Can't rely on Ripley for any length of time at all, has conceded 22 goals in 10 games for the club.
  4. Given our appalling home record I was shocked at how you didn't really come at us at all in the first half, 0 shots. Even Wycombe came to Deepdale with us low on confidence and showed real intent. Second half your changes really made a difference and it was a similar number of chances really, ours on the break. Could tell we were low on confidence after 2 bad results but a win is a win. Thought you were there for the taking in the first half but we were to reticent to take advantage of your errors.
  5. It's very hard to say, even from a PNE fan's perspective, which North End will turn up tomorrow night. Generally our home form has been woeful and our away form has been excellent. That's because we generally thrive in transition and on the counter, but when teams sit in we struggle. We only really have one properly effective creative player now at this level, Daniel Johnson, and he isn't performing (will touch on that later). However we battered Boro at home last time out but have been outplayed away at Luton and Barnsley in the last 2 away games so it's anyone's guess how we will p
  6. DJ, our POTY, is signing for Rangers this week. Bournemouth have bid for Ben Davies. Both have less than a year left along with Alan Browne and Ben Pearson, our 4 best players. Money brought in via sales doesn't affect the playing budget so I doubt we can afford someone like Palmer. Zero signings made so far. Manager desperate to sign strikers. Only striker we've signed is Nugent who we didn't want. Worst set of STs in the league last season yet we haven't signed one. Our first choice keeper is injured as well and the back up is awful. It's looking like a complete an utter mess.
  7. He started well, we were top of the league at one point, but spectactularly fell away in the last few games and didn't even make the play-offs. The more of his own stamp he was able to put on the team, the worse we got. He carried on where Davies had left off initially. Billy had gone to Derby and it was us and Derby at the top. Billy said to the press that he had "two teams at the top of the league" and from there onwards Simpson seemed to try to change things, it got into his head. As I said though as a no.2 or a 'coach' he's clearly a good option.
  8. Definitely not. It's been a long time now since Simpson managed Preston, but he was a total disaster. Took a squad that had been in the Championship play-offs 2 seasons running under Billy Davies and turned us into relegation contenders. Fell out with/couldn't manage the senior pros. He's clearly a good coach or assistant looking at the level he's worked at with England and under Steve McClaren in the Premier League but he's never a head coach or a manager at club level especially in the Championship. Would be a good appointment as assistant though.
  9. There will only be a vacancy in our midfield as and when Ben Pearson is sold. And if and when that happens our fans will probably want a few quid spending on the replacement, on a younger option than Smith. Could see us moving for Smith though as we rarely spend fees anyway and he's a decent free.
  10. Just for some context, our owner has not communicated directly with us since we won promotion back to the Championship in 2015. He also doesn't do interviews on football (horse racing is his true passion) and his son who is 'Chairman' does not attend the fans' forums. This is the first such communication we have seen from the club in a very long time. Part of that is because Peter Risdale has essentially operated as Chairman or CEO since he arrived in 2012 and is in charge of the footballing side of the club, but he had a directorship ban and his title was "advisor to the owner" so I don'
  11. He didn't do much, scored once in 20 games but despite that, he still felt PNE was below his standing in the world. We'd signed him on a season-long loan but he asked to return to Man Utd as soon as the January transfer window opened to go back to compete for a first team place! For the remainder of the season all he did was play 20 minutes away at Shrewsbury in the FA Cup. Was a stupid decision because he'd actually just started to settle in to our team as well. He's always had a lot of ability but his career has been hampered by injuries and also the fact that he thinks himself far
  12. Yeah sometimes it’s kept very firmly under wraps. If a manager in work goes for an interview or has permission to speak to another club but then doesn’t get the job, if it were public it would become very difficult for them to return to their club. By all accounts we interviewed Uwe Rösler along with Neil when we last had a vacancy. Fleetwood didn’t have to announce it and preferred to keep it quiet.
  13. From the outside looking in, seems bizarre. How can you try to appoint the likes of Hughton and Gerrard, knowing they would command big money, then say actually we need to cut costs with a cheaper managerial appointment.
  14. If you're referring to the size of transfer budget they would require, Cook actually spent very decent money at Wigan, especially last summer. It goes under the radar a bit. Still did a good job though imo.
