  1. The question has to be as well, who is going to manage the rebuild? Results very poor under NP and no bounce from his appointment now. Now discontent about him from fans. I am strongly in favour of NP and want and trust him to do the job, but the longer this drags on without him being named, the more doubt there is. No CEO to over see things. (Name only) We need this shambles sorting. NP has worked with squad since his appointment, seen the club, he will have his take on squad & make up. Would SL really bring in another new face to over see this ? I expect three or fou
  2. That mini run at start of season saved our bacon..without that run we would be bottom three material. We all know as well we got away with a few in that ‘run’ as well. Got to major surgery this close season...has to be NP as he will have seen with his own eyes what needs to happen. Imagine the chaos with no leadership trying to find a new manager now...
  3. Pearson came here for a reason, we were in a right mess. It cannot be sorted out till the whole squad is remoulded. I am beginning to wonder if he is going to get the job myself now...I want him to get it and his own back room staff and the opportunity to create a squad in his image, not this pile of proverbial he inherited. My dosh is still sat in my account While I wait to see what happens in next 7 days before my season ticket is renewed....am i alone here thinking this
  4. I agree with the sentiments, but IF we had no injuries our squad remained fit it may have been good enough to challenge for a top 6 spot, but in life how often does that happen... rarely. A Fit Baker and Kalas would have been an immense duo, a fit JD and so on... However it seems many or our 'stars' are made of glass. Lets be fair, we had players made of rock in years gone by.. Shaun Taylor for example... Like many on here I anticipate renewing....but if this is balls up again...I am certainly waiting
  5. I feel I have put a little bit back supporting via Robins TV through the season but will be radio Brizzle today as decorating project will take priority. Until the new season starts and the NP sorted out, one way or another , the last few games all a bit nothing apart from the noise. I really want NP to be appointed, none of this ‘we go again’ and for that reason really want some points.
  6. Got to offer him a deal, and suspect he would sign it...how many other clubs would sign him at the present time with what has occurred re his injuries. Perhaps a year to get him fit this summer with a carrot dangled somewhere ?
  7. It is NOT just MA, although he gets all the stick... he 'signs of deals' but remember LJ said only players were signed who he agreed with, and wanted.? And Holden himself said he wanted Williams, who has done nowt ! Hopefully end of season it will be NP driving forward with who he wants here... lets all wait and see how this pans out..
  8. It is clear to all of us this 'injury plagued' squad is simply NOT good enough...and you cannot lay that on NP door. You cannot convert a donkey to a race horse. He must use this time between now and end of season wisely and he will learn more and more. It will be even worse if it left to someone else mid summer. No, NP is our option, and he said himself leaving decisions till summer is too late. Planning must be starting now.
  9. Poor old SOD used to come out with remarks like ‘did not look at league table’ & performance was more important than results...when your bottom of table.. and the famous ‘no more stupid questions’ It was a really weird time to support City ! Some fascinating comments from SL on the podcast and first time that it has ever been revealed by SL, as picked up by others , about LJ, and him not being ready. Would love to be a fly on the wall when NP & SL Eventually meet in person in next few weeks...and where will MA fit into this. interesting times yet again.. At least NP c
  10. I am pleased I started this thread, some good all round differing views. I wish I had listed to the podcast first with SL ( 3 Peeps excellent it was as well) which is featured in another thread/topic. I guess I would have answered my own question. Seems like SL will be having a face to face with NP in next few weeks and meeting him in person for the first time, then the future will be resolved. The only ‘fly on the proverbial ointment ‘ is what happens If we lose another shed full of games before that happens.. A win a Coventry makes pretty much safe and then like to se
  11. That’s a good view point....but the greatest who is available who let’s be fair built a Prem league winning team... so I would say yes
  12. ...or is it in doubt? At the time my ST renewal invitation arrived we suffered another defeat following a turgid performance with one shot on goal in 90 minutes. I will put my case that I want NP to be appointed ASAP so he can sort this out. I was half expecting an announcement from the club he had the job during the international break but it never came. Has SL, JL MA got reservations now because of wretched home form, really believing this set of players should be delivering more.. should they just not be happy we are at least more or less safe and realise that th
  13. I presume this is unconnected to the long term injury as that was a quad....or are they connected (not literally) Any sports injuries people here?
  14. So, some natives getting restless then. Not surprising as Pro football is and always has been a result business. I want to see him mould a team in his way. I want to see the club appoint him on a 3 year deal and tell him to crack on with it. I would then renew my ST without hesitation.... He has inherited a proverbial crock of you know what & I am confident he will sort it before next season, we r in a great position with FFP. Bring it on.
