  1. Very happy with this result as a response, but really does only make me wonder quite how wrong had things gone behind the scenes? Why were the players performing so far below their ability level? They've shown this evening that they can be a relatively OK championship side. What I have been led to believe is that DH was 'the enforcer' when LJ was manager here. That is, he would be the one to drill them and get them working their nuts off physically in each session whilst LJ did the actual footballing coaching. It makes me wonder if DH had no tactical ability at all, and jus
  2. Great win. Gutted I missed the first half (I decided to go for a run, which in this wind was a terrible idea). Caught the 2nd half, but looked as though job was well and truly done by then and we had settled for a quiet and steady defensive performance in that half. Definitely interesting to see some players who have definitely been performing well under their normal standard this season suddenly turn on the style and play like we know and surely they know they can. New manager bounce in action! (Even if just by observing us this evening).
  3. Chuffed to bits with this appointment. Well done CIty (for a change).
  4. Also 1st May: Mark Ashton has signed a 10 year £1mil/year deal.
  5. Difficult to say, since I imagine MA will use his PR and spin tactics to make it seem like NP was always 'his choice' etc.
  6. First time since Cotts appointment I am considering an ST also if we secure NP.
  7. I'll be honest, I was expecting one of your windows to have an accidental porn tab open
  8. I am waiting for BoJo to announce Pearson has been appointed, is that not what his announcement tonight is for?
  9. I’ll be very pleased with Pearson. I didn’t think he would want to manage us, but I firmly hope he does. Finally an appointment with some credentials valid for the job.
  10. Pretty interesting reading looking at Steven Caulker's career since then mind!
  11. Wouldn't mind him in a consultancy role, but I suspect he's quite happy enjoying an informal unofficial retirement from football management these days.
  12. A lot of fans have suggested Richard Scudamore - which I think is an excellent suggestion but an unrealistic one. I would love him here, as he could represent us and ensure we have a big say in the EFL management, but can't see it happening. Someone in his mould/image however, would be good. For me, Ashton has a track record of turning fanbases against him at WBA and Watford. I may be taking a relatively simplistic view of things, but there surely is an underlying reason for that. He probably does do a good job representing us to the EFL, but the lifeblood and soul of a football club
  13. I wonder how long it would be before we come out with some marketting/PR crap akin to "The Five Pillars" we came out with those years ago. What ever happened to those pillars? Did they get demolised along with the Williams Stand??
  14. I'll have to agree to disagree with you on this one MrP.
