  1. Same. I got married on the 7th August when we played Millwall, went to Rome the following day, and came back a week later. Picked up a paper in the airport in Rome, read the match report from the previous day which stated something along the lines of "Keith Millen, the caretaker manager something something something". Had to read it a few times to make sure I was reading it correctly. Got back into England, connected to the Internet and then found out SC had walked. In the space of a week, I'd already been married longer than Coppell was in charge for (during a league season).
  2. I guess we'll soon see if Steve really did have to interject himself to make the Pearson signing. If that is the case, then I'd suggest Ashton realises that his cards are marked, and people in these sorts of positions usually find themselves a new position - pretty quickly if so as well!! If he stays on, then it would suggest that he was as involved in appointing Pearson just as much as he was Holden. If you really wanted to play devil's advocate though, you could suggest that the new powers that be at Ipswich are making public noise about Ashton coming on board in the hope tha
  3. Honestly can't bring myself to listen to that idiot speaking about the bunch of idiots that have employed him! Having listened to 2 of the NP interviews this morning, much the same as my first initial thoughts from the snippets I had heard before - committed, intelligent, gives the impression that there is a thought process behind every decision he makes, wants to build longterm and happy to give everyone a "clean slate". Breath of fresh air, and I see no reason why, given the right amount of time, resources and allowing his ideas to be implemented at the club (and there will be a fe
  4. It's online questionnaires from our Local Authority, annual tick box exercise which involves finding dates of services/inspections, and filling in to send back to them. Some examples of usual questions: - Has the establishment carried out a recent fire evacuation drill? Date? - Has the establishment carried out any recent building renovations? - Date of the last Legionella Risk Assessment. Lots of searching through files and finding dates. Need something to keep me going
  5. I'd argue that they're punching well above their weight/level. The facilities are conference standard at best, and even then that's doing some of the conference sides an injustice. The average attendance (we know despite them bleating on about how good it is) is shocking for a club that claims they are "so well supported", and is in fairness inline with a 4th division club (or league 2 in new money). They measure their success on how bad we are doing. Hop around from one ground to another, then moan when the council won't give them a new ground for free. Their biggest
  6. Have only listened to snippets of the interviews so far, not had time tonight. Have a load of health and safety stuff to do tomorrow at work so I'll listen to them in full then. From what I've heard and read, this is exactly the sort of appointment we've needed since Cotterill was shown the door. Just imagine (it wouldn't have happened then granted) if we had given Steve the boot, and replaced him with Nige. I'd bet my house that we would have been in the Prem within 2 seasons tops, and wouldn't have had to break up the promotion winning team so much, so quickly. Also wouldn't have h
  7. Whoever takes it, will only end up being replaced by Lennon in 12-18 months time anyway. He'll replace his replacement.....again..... On a serious note, wouldn't be surprised if they tried to get Lampard up there. It's worked for Rangers....
  8. Not a lot more to add really, other than a great game and made it look as if he had 50 appearances behind him rather than the handful he has. Carry on like that, and we've sorted the left back issue. Also just to add, great move putting Kalas alongside him....
  9. **** this, I'm going to plead guilty now and get the sentencing sorted ASAP. Hopefully they'll put me away until this watertight contract runs out.
  10. He hasn't done himself any favours since coming in on a permanent contract, but I think a lot of it may have been that Holden didn't rate him, and/or couldn't fit him into a system he preferred (although in hindsight he probably couldn't find a system he preferred himself!!) Played in the right position, players like Palmer (see also Wells, Fam) can look really good, however they also need a bit of consistency. In one week, out the next doesn't help, but if you aren't performing in the first place you shouldn't be in the side. Catch 22.... He did have a quieter 2nd half, but overall
  11. Carry on the same way they've been going and he'll accomplish that pretty easily.
  12. Steady on, it's exciting stuff I know but if that's what floats yer boat I suppose.....
  13. Sags: We got Joey Barton, yea big name dat is, played at da top level an' ev'ryfin. Gonna be on da sports pages tomorrow! Steve L: I don't bloody think so, give Nigel what he wants and not only can he sort out the shit we've seen recently, he can put those stupid sags back in their box!
