Anyone else worried we may get relegated this season? 

No, almost all 3 of the relegation places are nailed on, with fans Adams Park and the New York stadium might have been difficult places to go, but with no / fee fans I think they are nailed on to go down along with likely Sheff W with their points deduction. 

So although I don't think we would go down I don't see us being anywhere other than nearer the bottom than top.

Forgive me here but am I missing something as todays article in evening post sounds like the search continues with Hughton still in frame? Maybe I am desperate for any positive news

That reads as backtracking to me.

Surely they wouldn't state that DH has been offered the job without some due diligence - they knew that it would kick up a shit storm ?

More smoke and mirrors.

Speaking as an outsider what's your opinion of the human race?

Is this the guy who’s been right on a few things before or the one who it turned out was full of BS? It’s one of the two and I can’t remember 

He got one transfer right last summer but nothing else since. Can’t remember what player it was...

Fair comment. I really hope you're right. Not just for your sake either. These posts on here are getting far too toxic and people need to take a chill pill.

For that reason it’s a shame leeds have gone up and villa didn’t come down. Much “easier”’places to go without the atmosphere

Having a BBQ later - in a bubble apparently.

Never been in a bubble, looking forward to it.

Hopefully you are reliable and some of this may be true....the plot thickens perhaps

I actually feel quite sorry for Dean Holden in this, hear me out.

He's been (allegedly) offered a fair old pay rise to take a job at a club he knows inside out but doesn't appear to have the experience needed for such a role yet. He MAY be a success but chances are, with his lack of experience, we're going to struggle.

SL / JL and the odious MA have put him in this position and the reaction from the support / customers is pretty much universally damning.

Dean Holden is, I'm sure, a very nice and honourable man who has been manoeuvred into a situation where, miracles aside, he just can't win and he will have to face the vitriol of decisions made by others while they get off scot free.

I do feel for the bloke TBH and don't hold him responsible for this joke of a situation in any way. I wouldn't be at all surprised if he turned it down in all honesty.

So this is a plastic bubble? How does that work then what with all the heat and fat spits? Won't it burst?.

There might be something in what Top Robin is saying. after all if you got offered a managers job at a football club in my opinion why would you want to think about it. you take it. 

I did outline my thoughts on exactly this yesterday in the Chris Hughton thread following a discussion a friend had with MA.

Is that one of those new fangled bits of cooking kit - like a big green egg?

Certainly not . Just get her some water now and again 

She’ll be alright with some factor 50 and a big sun hat, although I did suggest that if she wears her string vest she will end up looking like a chess board!
