  1. Someone struggling with a lack of identity?
  2. I believe what will happen is that we will appoint Swindon's Wellens, or Plymouth's ..... the bloke at Plymouth, at some point this week; win all our remaining fixtures; unbelievably finish 6th; scrape through on penalties to the final; beat Brentford in the final with ten men (after Bakes is sent off for breaking Ollie Watkins legs in a no-holds-barred assault on the halfway line); and find ourselves in the blinkin' Premier League/promised land with Richie bloody Wellens of Swidnon in charge (or the bloke at Plymouth). Nightmare!
  3. I think Joe Royle's about the best we never had - applied for the job twice (once when Coops got it, the second time McInnes I think it was) but ..... I loved TC but Joe Royle was top class.
  4. Yes, but shouldn't you be on the blower to Geoff on Radio Local?
  5. Burnley hold Liverpool at Anfield. Decent from Dyche but you wonder if they could do just that little bit better (ie if their preparation for that game had been "perfect") ....
  6. The opposition has weakened a little too, to be fair ....
  7. He could get fired this evening ....
  8. Took them three seasons last time. They managed to finish well below us in one of those three
  9. It might run in to next season before they accumulate that many points from here ....
  10. Anyone older than late 40s remember watching a football coaching programme, something like "Play Soccer - Jack Charlton's Way" I think it was called, in the late 70’s/very early 80s? Basically Jack coaching a load of kids on a pitch, somewhere up north. No drones, box entries or, er, stuff about identity. Probably a fair bit of knocking it long, running the channels, and getting it in the mixer. Lee and @spudski would be horrified.
  11. Was going to post the same! Hhhrrruuubbbiiissshhh!
  12. I thank Lee Johnson for sparing us the agony of needing to beat bloody Preston in the last game to make the play-offs. Lee was the right chap, in the right job, at the right time - a time when football is being played behind closed doors and I didn't really want us to go up (to the top flight for only the third time in our history), not in an empty ground.
  13. I think Steve lost his marbles for a while there, if you like, but he's got them back now. I don't think Chris Hughton plays with marbles.
  14. I think what this thread reminds us is that we do not all share one sense of humour. Not everyone enjoys or even "gets" satire, not everyone watched Spitting Image, not everyone reads Private Eye, it's not everyone on here that will remember, say, Bill Hicks, never mind have found him "amusing." And, er, some people liked Bob Monkhouse, and mother-in-law jokes, and, um, like Michael McIntyre.
  15. I imagine Robbo is, unwittingly, referring to part of Mark Ashton's public reasoning given for the appointment as head coach of Lee Johnson in February 2016, in which he used the phrase "up and coming"
  16. Woke capital now, mate. When we face Stoke, it'll be Woke City v Stoke City
  17. What's yer favourite Muff away day out, mate? Ports? Ply? Bourne-muff are still tin pot, whatever division they're in, used to enjoy going down there...
  18. Doubtful, mate. Can't see it meself: "If any persons to the number of 12 or more unlawfully, riotously, and tumultuously assemble together to the disturbance of the public peace and being required by any Justice by proclamation in the King's name in the exact form of the Riot Act I, George I, Sess. 2 c. 5 s. 2, to disperse themselves and peaceably depart, shall to the number of 12 or more unlawfully, riotously, and tumultuously remain or continue together for an hour after such proclamation shall be guilty of a felony. The Form of proclamation is as follows:- Our Sovereign Lord
  19. Well yeah, they could, if all they saw was "Chris Hughton, football manager." But they - or we - don't. So until we do ......
