    It would make getting Chris Hughton easier..
  2. I think Lowe is only going down in price because he never should've been 20/1 in the first place. Having him priced below the likes of Karanka and Lee Bowyer was always odd imo. It's just the market overcorrecting itself a bit now. That said, he'd actually be on one of my standout picks anyway.
  3. The midweek games next week are interesting as well: West Brom v Fulham Cardiff v Derby Millwall v Blackburn Brentford v Preston Forest v Swansea While it's pretty unlikely we're definitely still in the mix, given we have 2 of the weakest teams in the league up next as well. With our final games being against Swansea and Preston there's every chance this goes right down to the final game again. The most frustrating thing is just one more win recently would've helped massively.
  4. Why are all our strikers on the bench?
  5. Williams is definitely a bit of a liability as a player: Sometimes you need that kind of attitude, sometimes it drags the team down. I think he could probably make a decent coach though fwiw.
  6. Part of my issue with someone like Gerrard would be that there's always a decent possibility he could leave for a bigger job at any point. As mentioned before, he'd see us as a platform to move up in his career and the moment he starts doing a good job here he'd be linked with all the bottom half Prem teams, if not higher. I guess you could argue that's not really a negative, and could even work well if the club got some compensation for losing a manager. While Hughton may be wanted elsewhere right now, if he were to come here it would be because he wanted to fully commit to our project
  7. A lot of jumping to conclusions in this thread I think. I get why people are worried about us making the wrong decision here, but we have to trust the club now. It's clear Lansdown is ambitious. It's clear Mark Ashton is ruthless. And it's clear we're quite an attractive job at the moment. We're in a good place.
  8. Smith's never been a great passer of the ball anyway. Putting him as the only core central midfielder in the team isn't a great idea as it puts too much emphasis on him to make key passes, rather than simply sticking to the basics of using his high energy and passion to better effect.

    Congrats on the ton, guys. Happy to have been listening since episode 1 and glad to see how its grown from there Here's to another 100 celebrating when we get to Europe..
  10. I'm not massively for or against Mark Ashton, but there's no point ripping up everything at the club. A lot has gone right over the last 4 years. The next appointment is important, and Ashton should be a part of that
  11. Yeah I can see this tbh. Think it's pretty inevitable he'll be sold this summer (rather than lost for nothing next summer) so makes sense that he wouldn't want to play now. It's disappointing but it's the business. Or could just be a genuine injury like. Who knows
  12. I think this is the first time in the 4 years that I just can't back him anymore. A lot of the criticism he's faced during his time here has been pretty harsh, but if I were one of the Lansdowns or Mark Ashton I'd be wanting to have a serious conversation with LJ about what his actual plan is right now. Unless he comes up with a much more convincing answer than the last few press conferences he's given, I'd get rid now.
  13. See I think this is part of why we're not getting the best out of Palmer though. He keeps getting told he's not fit enough, doesn't work hard enough etc. Quite often this season when he has played I've seen him running around like a lunatic, picking up needless bookings and wasting energy, ending up out of position as a result. Why? Because that's not what he's good at. On Saturday when he came on, he sat really deep. As Blackburn were comfortable and could sit back at this time that meant he almost always had 11 opposition players in front of him limiting his options and making him i
  14. It's a weird enough comment to make once, let alone to say it half a dozen times if not more. I still like him, but LJ definitely still seems so naive in many ways.
