  1. What a great post. I fully accept the criticism of Pearson for match day decisions recently but when look at the remit overall and put the current situation into perspective, my god what a task. Oh to be Lee Johnson!
  2. It’s his club and his company who kindly let us use its facilities. That interview really annoyed me. Anyway, as my mate said today, it’s done, the past is simply that. Lets hope we hang on in there this year
  3. I get that you don’t rate Pearson and want somebody else. I just think it’s not that simple. I think Lansdown and Ashton have created a much deeper problem and I honestly have little faith anyone could sort it out. Lets see where we are after 20 games.
  4. My concern is that the squad is so poor as a whole I just don’t another manager doing anything different. I was looking at Forest on Tuesday and thinking despite their form prior to Cooper the squad still had Grabban, Johnson, Pumpernickel and Taylor on the bench. Something to work with.
  5. I don’t know enough about football at this level really, but if we parted ways in Monday who would you recommend take over and rebuild follow the mistakes of Ashton and Lansdown? Also what would they do with this squad given the FFP time bomb created by the club?
  6. Shame that we ballsed up the last 3 years. Agree that we are hamstrung by it now. Heavy sigh.
  7. Lots of shit had gone down over the last couple of months, but I’ll be reserving a deeper judgement until this next block of 10 is done. I thought 15-12th with signs of the infrastructure behind the scenes changing would be a success for the season. Let’s see if we’re on course for that
  8. I’m genuinely grateful for the facilities the club use. Just a shame somebody else didn’t help with the football decisions over the last 20 years.
  9. Completely agree about knee jerk reactions However is there any room for a conversation about the last 20 years? I appreciate he’s bought some nice things
  10. It’s a difficult conversation isn’t it? Are you a good parent because you buy expensive gifts? Is it actually a more nuanced conversation about the footballing decisions and opportunities encountered over the last 20 years? Its too easy to simply say, ‘we could be Rovers’, true but we could have also been one of the many other clubs who have experienced far more success than ourselves.
  11. Completely agree. Anything other than a win on Saturday and it will really compound the issue.
  12. Pearson and the squads fault. Aston and Lansdown’s fault that the clubs is a ******* mess and staring down the barrel of a FFP shotgun. Does that sounds fair?
  13. An eye witness account? Its not necessary thanks, this thread seems content with opinion
  14. Do you think he wants a picture of my love?
  15. Pearson is not without blame, of course not. But this mess has been caused by Ashton and Lansdown and is going to take years to sort
  16. To give some context I just meant we haven’t been battered. I think apart from Bournemouth all games have either been draws or decided by an odd goal. It’s a low starting point
  17. Fair points, I suppose the counter is who is the quality striker you bring on the same terms as Simpson was? King hasn’t been bad. Agreed he’s not a ‘star’ but not a waste
  18. I don’t disagree that signing a striker was paramount and it’s a mistake not too. I honestly don’t know what money there was, but any of the FFP expert on here will tell you we are pretty screwed. We bought in Tanner and Atkinson and have tried to be be strong at the back first and in fairness we’ve been quite solid. These two acquisitions look good at present and tick almost all of the boxes. Ultimately if there is no money then who is the striker we bring in?
  19. That’s was unbelievable. So much other crap that it’s already been lost, but my god.
  20. He has no choice. We were left with a squad that is inadequate whilst Uncle Steve realised his favourite nephew Mark had emptied the piggy bank. It’s a perfect storm. Our lack of options up front coupled with a midfield who are to slow too transition into attack, is the problem. Our defence actually looks alright, with Tanner and Atkinson looking like just the right additions. Its seasons long now
  21. They were embarrassing when they came on. Both need to go. Nowhere near the every levels needed.
  22. I think James has done alright. Given how I presume their contracts are accounted for I don’t see them as bad signings.
  23. Yeah, why not. Made me smile with his tackles. Even more so than when Scott scored as all I could think was that got him off if the hook for that horrendous miss
