  1. Well 100,000 people would need to contribute £100 each to make £10m, so put Gerrard on a 4 year contract at £2m a year and you’ve got £2m left to make sure we never run out of Gold behind the bar. The players have been so shocking for the last 18 months they don’t deserved to be paid and with SL, JL, MA, and DH all sacked the only other people to pay are the kit man, the head scout and the tea lady! This running a football club lark is easy!!
  2. Probably on the same wages though!! Finances in the two sports are light years apart but I get what you’re saying, if it’s DH it shows a huge lack of ambition on the footballing side.
  3. You’re right he did sign Knockaert, the others through were there when Hyypiä was in charge.
  4. You’re quite possibly right and I’m just playing devil’s advocate with my comments but could you name 5 city players that could step into ANY premier league side, even the likes Norwich, Bournemouth etc? Dasilva probably but other than that I’m struggling.
  5. But was it though?? It looks like it on paper I guess but if you look at the young squad he inherited: Dunk, Baldock, Knockaert, Murphy, March, Norwood, Duffy. A core of players that have proven to be Premier League quality, City May have one or two rough diamonds that a new manager could improve but it certainly doesn’t have that core of a team ready to go. You could argue that we have been punching above our weight in the last few seasons (not so much this year) whereas Brighton were massively under achieving when he took over.
  6. Yeah I buy that, and he would be perfect to carry on this gradual progression that were on which I see being another series of seasons in the Championship with just making the playoffs being seen as a success in the next couple of seasons but I’m not sure CH would be interested in that, surely he’d want to be back in the Premiership sooner rather than later, Brighton wasn’t a slow build for him, he was promoted in his second season there. It depends what the business model is, if we’re genuinely looking at getting promotion as soon as possible then rather than a good guy who will a
  7. This isn’t meant as a negative post towards CH but can anyone enlighten me as to what makes him the ideal candidate?? Is it just his two promotions with Newcastle and Brighton? From what I see the club need a bit of a re-build, theirs plenty of talented players in the squad but not that special couple of players that elevate you to the next level, I think the club will need to try to move on some of the fringe players and invest in some key players, especially a midfielder who can link play (Brownhill replacement) CH hasn’t got experience in doing this! He took a Newcastle
  8. Sell them all and replace them with who!!!? We all got excited when we signed Kalas, been average all season. We all got excited when we signed Palmer, the lad can’t seem to get fit enough to play 90 mins. We all got excited when we signed Massengo, he’s got real potential but isn’t ready yet and still needs development. Now we’ll list another load of players we “need” to make us better yet realistically the chances of whoever comes in signing the perfect players without knowing the balance of the squad already is slim to none. This squad needs developing but all I’d say was mis
  9. I understand that this isn’t how it works most of the time but not ALL managers need to experience an “apprenticeship”
  10. Couldn’t agree more!! Football changes so quickly that a “proven track record” doesn’t always turn out as well as expected. The Championship is a different animal now, we’re coming up against Bielsa’s, Bilic’s & Cocu’s now not Dave Jones, Ian Holloway, Darren Ferguson like when Hughton first got promotion. I’m not saying SG is the answer I just don’t know if CH’s “record” is as much of an advantage as it seems.
  11. Will Paterson ever press someone in possession!!? For all his good work going forwards he does so little defensively!
  12. I don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade here but let’s just imagine the suns all align, results go our way and we win all our remaining games to finish 6th. Great but..... we then have the small issue of playing the likes of Brentford, Leeds or West Brom over two legs!!
  13. City are a mid table side, with a mid table budget and a mid table squad! LJ had massive ups and massive downs but no more than any other manager working with another team in the same situation. Overall the club has moved from a middle to bottom team to a middle to top team during his tenure. He is most definitely owed thanks for the work he has done, now the plan is to move higher again I agree the time had come for a change but anyone who says he’s not done anything for this club is closed minded. Get some perspective!!
