  1. Anyone else struggling? I've been able to watch all of 5 minutes this half
  2. I'd think most people have at some point worked for a boss who's just not up to the task. You question their decisions, which means you become demotivated and as a result your performance drops. It is a shame when that boss is likeable, but it's pretty much unavoidable When someone comes in who is either appearing or proven to be far more capable at the role, it totally reverses that negative reaction. This applies in all workplaces, and I dont believe football is any different. It's just that you have thousands of "emotional shareholders" watching it unfold and commenting on it
  3. It has to be deliberate doesn't it? It is gross mismanagement if it wasn't deliberate That said, seeing where we are poised now (needing fight for a relegation battle), you could argue that this deliberate tactic is also gross mismanagement or arrogant/ complacent Either way u look at it, it's an absolute shitshow. Embarrassing.
  4. With analysis like that they appear to be adequately qualified to be in the running for the job
  5. Yeah it drives me mad when something which is free with optional attendance isn't up to the standards I expect (when I haven't made any effort to help improve it). Nice and positive.
  6. Ashton. Cos his replacement wouldn't consider keeping such an inexperienced head coach on if he wanted to achieve the objectives of the job, meaning they'd both be gone soon enough
  7. My thoughts are more out of hope than anything else! And thinking that the club might (should) be doing as most other businesses are, keeping things tight during covid and using the time to prepare for leaner times ahead Out of interest, do you know what contracts the 2 coaches are on? Is it 1 year rolling like holden?
  8. Don't think he'll be going anywhere before the end of the season and, assuming we're safe, it makes no sense financially to get rid. I've always said that I thought holden was a temporary appointment whilst we wait for the covid dust to settle. I've never been concerned about this approach, but I am very concerned about whether the powers-that-be are capable of knowing what to do next...
  9. Not a defeat but... That Sunderland 3-3 at the gate a few years back Johnson and Ryan Kents egos unravelling us
  10. Seem to remember rovers thinking along those lines on that glorious day in 2014!
  11. Feeling quite pessimistic recently, so I'm hoping for many lucky results to get us to 50 points ASAP
  12. Yes that's exactly what I find is happening in our group. Out of 6 there'd be most of us watching on any given game 3 months ago. Since the stats have become so poor, there's just one of us occasionally bothering The entertainment has totally gone and (more than the tenner) i value the 2 hours of my life more. Spending time with the kids results in less whinging than watching city, putting on an action film results in seeing more shots on target, and doing diy means I get more satisfaction from literally watching paint dry.
  13. I think the managers salary is only a small fraction of the costs they were using for decision making. I'd say the prospective candidates were told what the approximate transfer budget would be and, being desperate to get a foot on the management ladder, holden would've been a candidate who accepted it regardless To answer the OP, I think holden was appointed as a safe pair of hands in a very tumultuous year... stay in the league and see how the financial side of this year pans out. If he does well, it's a bonus. My concern is if it goes badly and, although I do try not to be t
