Re: Manchester Utd (a) - FA Cup

Fantastic from the owners but couldn't care less about this game. Play the kids. Imagine how many supporters will be there just for a "day out" John. Bet it turns your stomach. It's difficult. Many people still see Manchester United as a big club so more fool them. I just wish as many fro...

Re: New Manager

Do you have a really small penis? Just can't help but notice you seem unable to post without making derogatory remarks about others. Bit wrong of you to assume gender there Sanguine. Would have thought you'd be better than that. Also, is it wrong to have an opinion different to yours, one formed fr...

Re: New Manager

The popularity will wane after a month of poor results and most of the new post 2006 premier league fans won't even have seen him play. His managerial career has been mixed at best, and the career win rate is based largely at Bradford in league 2 where they were around the playoffs for years, and t...

Re: New Manager

Quite clearly the reason why neither of you are qualified to offer an opinion/why the opinion you both have offered is oh so very wrong. It would be a dreadful appointment and anyone with an ounce of knowledge knows that. Are you going to explain why you think he'd be so bad, using all that knowled...

Re: New Manager

I've not been to a game in two years, but certainly would for Parky's return. If it happens it should be written into his contract that he comes sprinting out of the tunnel before the game and across the pitch to applaud the fans. Quite clearly the reason why neither of you are qualified to offer a...

Re: New Manager

Parkinson it is then. The legend finally comes home. We should all welcome him with open arms, embrace his style and passion and roar the boys up the table. This maybe, just maybe will be an inspired choice. Fits and suits everyone. No more talking, welcome home. I've not been to a game in two year...

Re: BFTG Sheffield

Evening Mr S.......I'd like to add also that whoever takes over has to have been a manager who has achieved something and has a pedigree in the lower leagues......no more coaches or people who a deserve "a chance", or who sit upstairs rather than operate at ground level. There are some ab...

Re: The Local Journo Thread

Bit of an interesting standoff going on between our local journo's and even ex ones. Watts putting knife in with his scoop, Smith good as ruling that out and convinced we have certain targets (but now deleting and re-editing his tweets as not to lose face and JLow is laying low. None of them have a...

Re: BFTG Sheffield

Just a mention that Sheffield Utds team that started the other night cost less than our defence that we fielded. Which I guess proves the point that if you have a good manager, with good knowledge of the lower leagues, good backroom staff, and more importantly a good scouting structure then you can...

Re: New Manager

First thing our new manager should do is have a massive clearout and that includes Moore, Swift, Barrow and Ilori, they could generate 20-25 million between them (somehow) which will give us funds to buy decent players. £25m? I'm not convinced you'd get that if you managed to sell the whole squad! ...

Re: New Manager

I agree. There's a lot to be said for knowing when to pull the plug and I think we've got it wrong with the last 2 managers. I'm stuck between thinking Clement wasn't given enough time and certain fundamentals still weren't right and something had to change. I'm not distraught that he's gone but I ...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Scott Dann hasn't played for a over a year through injury. A 2 month loan at the Madejski would be ideal for his fitness and to help shore up our defence

Re: BFTG Sheffield

Can't blame Marshall but he's surely put himself out of contention now. I have no real view on marshall as a manager. hes done a great job with u23s, but I'm not sure that always translates to grown u football teams. but would you say that if we had brought in castro/calvahal/jokanovic a few days b...

Re: New Manager

From our point of view, anyone would be a big gamble although I'd rather have someone with a recent track record of getting teams to punch above their weight rather than someone with a recent track record of fcuking it up and getting arsey with the local media because they ask difficult questions. ...

Re: BFTG Sheffield

Simply reinforced my view that Clement wasn't the problem. Removing him isn't going to change the direction of this season. Feel sorry for Marshall. Might as well have played the entire U23 team for the experience. Given the result. Did the Sheffield United keeper even take a goal kick in the secon...
