  1. You might be right but then we don't know what constraints might be placed on a new manager as a condition of their employment.
  2. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and the sale of Ayling now looks bad. However, I don't recall a great clamour at the time that is was nonsensical. In fact to many after his participation in events at Cheltenham it seemed inevitable. Ayling was a decent player at City but was often criticised on OTIB for his cavalier attitude which saw him caught upfield leaving us short at the back. He certainly wasn't the player he became at Leeds.
  3. Who's been sold under the nose of the manager? Do you honestly believe we were going to keep Webster, Bryan, Reid, Kelly or Brownhill after clear Premiership interest? These players were going regardless and MA got good returns for all of them. McCarthy understands the real world and list some of his better players at Ipswich. It's the way of football.
  4. I wonder if he will go the way of his father and never again reach the heights he achieved in the Championship. At his age I hope not for his sake but just wonder. Isn't his family home in Nantwich. Somewhere closer to home maybe.
  5. Don't know if he's the right man or not but he certainly has my respect. He's as honest as the day is long, never passes up the hard questions and says it how it is. You won't get any newspeak from McCarthy.
  6. Like everyone else on here I just want the best person for the job regardless of gender, skin colour, ethnicity, sexual preference or religion. I have no problem whatsoever with BAME candidates on the shortlist but am unsure if any of the UK based names mentioned thus far (including Hughton) fit the bill. But the problem of suitable BAME managers doesn't seem to be confined to the UK as I must admit I'm struggling to add candidates across Europe too, any ideas? We might need to head to South America to find a suitable BAME name.
  7. I think it was a collective decision, not MAs alone. How many times have we been told that on players coming into the club LJ had the final say. In Pack's case he was offered a 3 year deal at Cardiff, something we were never going to offer, and on the face of it a current international player coming from Serie A as a replacement looked a very good deal. I liked Pack and constantly supported him but I was in the minority on OTIB, and there is an argument that, like LJ, he'd taken us as far as he could go. Personally I'd have got rid of Korey before him, as Korey's passing range is limited and h
  8. And if you believe MA brings players into the club on his say so you are equally so.
  9. MA is not the football tactician he's the finance man responsible for the smooth running of the club sans football. Its his job to get the best deal possible for the players identified by the football staff. This he has done.
  10. For someone to be a puppet there has to be a puppet master pulling the strings. In that case neither LJ or MA can be at fault because as puppets they have to dance to the masters tune. Is it the Lansdown's you really want rid of?
  11. Gareth Ainsworth is the long haired manager who stands on the sidelines in jeans and a leather jacket looking like he's about to strap on a guitar and replace Steve Harris in Iron Maiden. Knows his stuff though.
  12. I think we're a decent proposition for a manager. Candidates know that in SL we have an owner who doesn't sack managers at the drop of a hat, he is likely to give them time and a decent (if not an overthetop) budget to work with.
  13. The return of Tiny Penis with Colin as his No2 having left the sunny climes of Middlesbrough.
