  1. People worrying about the short term deal fear not, prudent on both sides. IF City relegated we won’t want to pay his wages at L1 level, and he won’t wanna manage us. Agreement/contract will be in place once safety secure and both parties happy to continue. Imagine Pearson will then look to get his own backroom team in at this point too if he’s not happy with Downing & Simpson. Perfect and best available candidate we could have hoped for.
  2. Just spotted RoydeAlien has tweeted about this 30min ago - rumour over
  3. What was Pearson before all the movement? That’s a lot of money being placed on him or intel info for it to drop that quickly and low! After last year and Hughton thou il wait before I get too excited
  4. “We need someone to come in and carry on the good worK, and keep things as they are” No we don’t Steve, that’s exactly the reason why we are in this mess!!!! This interviews smacks of we are getting in another ‘Yes’ man, Appleton here we come........
  5. When LJ was here and went on one of his losing streaks, you’d often hear the phrase “trusted players” and he would turn to the more experienced, battle hardened players who would work their socks off and try grind out a result. Holden on the other hand is stuck with a bunch of players who look like they can barely wait for the season to be over, and we still have 10-15 games to go!
  6. Football is a business (which has become more apparent in recent years), the club are selling a service, if you aren’t happy with the product/service then you don’t purchase again untill improvements have been made, or the price adjusted due to quality. In other words, don’t pay for the game until you are happy with performance/results and perhaps this might make people stand up and take notice. Iv already made a promise to myself not to buy another game untill we win 2 games in a row or the manager has been changed.
  7. I don’t blame Holden for giving Towler a chance as it was obvious Mariappa on that side wasn’t working (I’m sure 5 goals came from that side between Brentford & Cardiff games) as he was the only left sided defender available (circle pegs in circle holes and all that) - it could have worked had he been played in his favoured/natural position alongside some experience, but seems like he was thrown to the lions yesterday, given no support/help against one of best players on division and had to be hauled off at half time. The idea was good, but in true Holden style, the execution was awf
  8. I was thinking about our future striking options earlier - With Fammy seemingly on his way out and Martin out for 3 months, why not give Wells and Semenyo a chance as pair up top. Yes Wells has looked nothing like the striker from QPR but most games he’s been asked to play wide and with no creative players behind him. Now Palmer and Patterson are back (plus Lansbury) surely they could play to his strengths and we see the clinical striker at this level he could be. Semenyo is still a work in process but possesses alot of quality running with the ball and has a decent strike, I wonder
  9. I think it’s fair to say (unless Ashton/Lansdown are stupidly content with current run/style) that he will be gone by the end of year. It’s whether - 1) He’s given additional time due to injuries to prove himself once players come back. 2) If they want to get rid are there any managers available (can’t imagine club wanting to spend compensation on new manager in current times) who would work with Club hierarchy, and would then have 2-3 months to assess squad ahead of summer with numerous key players OOC 3) Wait till summer when potentially more managers generally become availa
  10. 2 shots all game (1 was goal and vyner in second half) otherwise toothless again.
  11. I said to Mrs before whether I should bother paying £10 for a game I know will be a scrappy 1-0 to someone, with City either being v lucky or rubbish. Iv told her to remind me of these last 2 games iv watched before paying again. That’s the straw that’s broke the camels back im afraid
  12. Thankfully City player has kicked me out (says im not logged on despite logging on/off numerous times) so I don’t have to watch last 15min of dross. Dunno why I put myself through the bother of paying £10 to watch this tripe
  13. I think people need to stop the comments regarding him and Liam Walsh (Re contract) - Brunt has gone and Holden obviously wants that experienced centre midfielder role in the squad, so Lansbury offers a very similar proposition considering his age, experience and quality (mainly past) so wages might have been offset by this. I don’t get the love in with Walsh, an unproven player at this level who’s had one outstanding season at League 1 but people think he could really impact our team in a positive way. I’d love that to happen but not likely. Not rushing to get him signed to long te
  14. The club always plan in advance and would surely have been talking/offering him a new deal last summer (confirmed by Holden when I saw him at Weston friendly) - in the past when players have made it clear they wouldn’t be signing (ie Bryan/Reid/Flint) Ashton worked his magic and got city the best possible deal for a player with 1year left so the ‘business model’ stays prudent and cost effective. So in my mind a player with a significant selling fee with 1year left on contract should have been sold and the money used to sign a new replacement. We have done this so well in the past but ver
  15. I still cannot fathom why Dean decides (when we are behind) to ensure all 4 strikers are on the pitch and therefore pushing our 2 most threatening/likely players out wide. Tonight for example we had zero creativity (3 shots all game and none on target) but yet he decides to take off our only creative centre midfielder (Palmer) and replace him for one player who he would probably provide service for in Wells. Losing the faith v quickly, don’t mind losing if we are giving it a go or generally playing good football but we are doing neither and I’m still baffled by Deans tactics/favoured for
