  1. You just said everything I wanted to say, but did it better then I could! We need more David Nobles in this world, never mind just in footy, but that would do nicely. I hope he reads some of these comments and knows how much joy he brought us fans, absolutely loved watching him play.
  2. spot on sir (if you are a sir!) you should have Rick Parrys job, with common sense and logic like that...
  3. Love the guy, wish him well, before the injuries an absolute rock, still glimpses of the class he has, but no where near the player he was. right decision for me. As someone else said, we need a Kory Smith Mark 11, who has height and moves the ball forward faster. (is Marvin Elliot still playing.....)
  4. it also showed that for all the talk, Leeds had done their homework us and had a plan (diagonal long ball across field for Ayling to rise above De Silva and head a goal sprigs to mind), we had not and seemed to have no plan. Leeds also looked fitter, sharper and switched on. showed the pre season tour to USA at a normal time of bad weather/lightening storms was daft and a waste of time . I realise I have the hindsight goggles on...
  5. A good question, that I don't really have an answer for... I see why we could need a "name" to tempt those players like Tammy away from the clubs in the smoke. David Moyes (but he is in the Chris Hughton category and some for me). Hopefully MA and SL have put more thought into it then me....
  6. To quote the film Brewster's Millions, is there anyone else who like me are not that inspired by any of the current crop of talked about / betted on possible managers? SG has little experience and none in the championship, Hughton feels like yesterdays news... I could go on. I would have no issues if they had another list of great coaches (possibly overseas) that none of us were talking about, who had heard of David Wagner before Danial Farke, but both are top notch championship managers
  7. SL did not even want the new stand to be named after him, I think he said he would fire the person the first person who suggested it!! They had to "collectively" break the news to him that we were gonig to call it the Landsdown stand, I would have no problem at all with the stadium being names after the family who have done so much for the club.
  8. Agree he was much improved Saturday, he remains one of our stronger players overall. As the OP, it was his passing that got to me and my son.. that also was okay at the weekend. His problem in terms of a renewed contract, is that he is now injury prone, we have a like for like replacement in Joe Morrell + Nagy, Walsh, HNM. There is not going to be an increase in spending next year, so from a budget / age point of view, a new contract is not likely IMHO.
  9. Morrell, Walsh and HNM are all decent mid championship quality, but very few teams get promoted from this division without at least 2 tall dominant, ball-playing midfielders (someone mentioned Marvin Elliot who is exactly the type of player we need). Pack was decent and ticked most boxes, but you need all of what Pack had, plus box-to-box athleticism.
  10. My son just asked if he is playing for Hull, he’s passed to them so often. One of my favorite city players, still giving his all, but his passing is now appalling.
  11. I think one of the issues for LJ was he had never been sacked before. I think he has been poached both times by us and Barnsley. A more experienced manager (even the very best managers have normally been sacked a few times) would have sensed it coming. Thats not his fault, but a fact of life and a valuable learning experience for him. Picking the accident prone Bentley in the place of the safer, but unglamourous Maanpaa on footballs return, this alone tells me he thought his job was save until next season.
  12. I did not see the earlier thank you threads, so grateful to op for starting this one. I give Lee a huge Thank You for all he has done for BCFC, I have really enjoyed the 4 years overall, he and we know the football has been mostly dreadful to watch this year, but you judge someone over the whole period. Afobes injury and Brownhill going (both beyond his control - did for this season). I am one of those marmite fans, I hated him as a player (cost us the play off final, when his dad tried to shoehorn him onto the pitch and moved others out of position), but I have really enjoyed his ti
  13. Oddly enough the debacle at Blackburn with players slipping was probably a nail in LJs coffin, as his grass measuring was much touted.....if you say you do that stuff, then clearly it’s shown you didn’t, it’s not a good look....
  14. Not in the know or anything, but he’s available and a decent manager, thoughts?
