  1. You are not alone NI. As much as the internet can be a cruel, spiteful and thoughtless place at times. I genuinely believe that if you reach out as you have done, you'll see the best of people and that goes beyond the brother/sisterhood of OTIB. I would definitely speak to your GP if you feel comfortable doing so, they can offer a lot of support. I would also mention your role of a carer for your wife to the GP.This puts a tremendous pressure on people and given the state of the world right now it probably only feels worse. Support for mental health might not be advertised on he
  2. It's a fair point. On balance i would say we are a very attractive option for an ambitious manager. Getting us to the Prem would be a notable achievement, Villa again, not so much. Perhaps Hughton as the example should grab the opportunity before someone else does. All about that desire and ambition i guess.

    It all helps. Networking is an important part of football.

    Never heard of him but looks like he's doing a good job with AZ. Certainly wouldn't rule out an appointment from abroad.
  5. A few things I'd like on our new managers CV: Has had a successful spell with a club bigger than us. At least one promotion into the top flight. This could be in one of the main European leagues as well as England. Played at the highest level as a player. Someone who sticks to their footballing philosophy, ideally an attractive attacking style. A known motivator of players. Unlikely to tick all those boxes i know but in agreement with the OP, it has to be a senior more experienced manager for me. We are an attractive option no doubt about that. To get us out
  6. That's pure speculation as you well know. What is it you say about if it's not on the OS then...
  7. Board/owner, you get the point. Had to go, has gone, well done all.
  8. No hard feelings towards LJ at all. I thank him for his efforts in progressing the club. The board have done exactly the right thing though and i applaud them for being swift about it. With 5 competitive games to assess a decent squad, a transfer window with good backing and a pre season, we should be an attractive proposition for a new manager.
  9. Seriously, we're all standing outside at 2.58pm tomorrow for a mins applause Tom. We'd do 3pm but ya know.
  10. Here's to @TomF and his minions on what must of been a right ball ache. As i fellow IT professional, i salute you! Been through many painfull downtime myself. Good work
  11. Don't think too many managers would want the dreaded vote of confidence from their owner. It's not a sign things are going well. It'll be a seasons end review and if we finish top half, i think that will be good enough for SL to stick with him going into next season.
  12. Likewise. As a fellow work skin preferrer it's appreciated.
  13. Just reading some reaction to him leaving on the Post website from Gasheads. Got to love this one... "Thanks for your service and effort Ollie. Magic moments like your goal at Eastleigh away will never be forgotten." Your damn right it wont, Non League Bristol Rovers. We're never forgetting that either!
  14. Did it go something like: "Hi Pam, thanks for the mammaries?"
  15. I always use the OTIB Work theme. Nothing against red of course, just find it easier on the eye. Happy to say it also looks great post feng shui tidy up.
  16. Perhaps to a club with the standing of Leeds, West Brom etc in this division. More likely i think he would end up in the top flight abroad somewhere. Would certainly be a an interesting name to be linked with if that ever happened. You would think he could sort out the midfield though, horrible player to go up against back in the day.
  17. The comment on RB "It was a good performance, it won't look like it" that really wound me up. Well, he was half right i guess.
  18. No live stream on Robins TV for non season ticket holders as game is in Sky. Try www.hesgoal.com nearer kick off. Failing that, enjoy the bull fighting!
  19. 1-0 home win when Monk was there. Pack scored i think.
  20. Thought Hull would of been more appropriate.
  21. Does this mean that during the pre match warm up, Holden and Macca are essentially 'fluffers' then?
