Re: New Manager

I dont understand Jonathan Low's piece - isnt Luis Castro just the sort of personality we've been pushing out the door for the last few months now? Still, its the only evidence we have so far. Im not massively fussed by Clement leaving, and this would be a good time for it, with the transfer window ...

Re: FA cup 3rd round draw

The reality will be closer to whatever mediocre championship team we've already played in the League Cup.

Away.

Draw with them and play them 5 times in a season.

Re: The very latest in Clement In/Out Polls

i still think Clement should get one window without Tevreden.
After that, he's fair game.

Re: Clement

Which 'era' are you referring to and what, if anything, is different or unique about it with Clement? As far as the club's 'current situation', Clement was going to be a 'massive upgrade' with player's that 'have talent', some think his summer signings were good, and quite a few predicted Top 10?

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

ID hate Parkinson as manager, because I like him so much, it would make any dry spell in results that much more upsetting. It was the same with McDermott's second spell at the club. I also dont buy that 'even with their problems' that his position at Bolton proves he's just what we want. Parky has n...

Re: Will going down be a bad thing? poll added.

Bournemouth Bournemouth have had a sugar daddy for quite some time now. Portsmouth We are nowhere near the financial trouble that they were in. If they can (eventually) turn around their fortunes, so can we. The main reason I think going down could actually be good for us, is that we are making fun...

Re: BFT - I don’t know what to call it

Your stats on Aluko were wrong btw. He only played 5 mins against Brentford, and we got a draw. Woops - rejigged it as I misread the substitution stats for 4 games. Pretty similar PPG though. With Aluko - P43 W9 D13 L21 - PPG - 0.93 Without Aluko - P9 W1 D3 L5 - PPG - 0.66 Thats interesting. Im a f...

Re: BFT - I don’t know what to call it

Is there a good resource for points per game by player? I'd like to see what they are for Aluko and how'd they compare. Normally I roll my eyes at Scape goats but can't help feeling this one might be justified. Whoscored is pretty good usually but I wouldn't rely too much on stats. They're cold and...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by the season starts here

If you put any stock in xG, shows we did a little bit of a smash and grab on Preston who xG suggests should have won 3-2 (2.5xG V 1.5) rather than lost. Will take that any day of the week though. Important to get off the mark - and with 2 other teams who have struggled so far this season coming up ...

Re: Tevreden Out, Nani In

So, we clearly don't know the full ins and outs here but this is how I think things are at the club currently: RG was brought in with at least one of his tasks to cut costs across the board, so that whatever cash we do have can be maximised for squad additions. This meant taking over some responsib...

Alex McCarthy has seemingly been called up to the England squad again. Remember how many nobbers said he was shite? Not really.

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

I rarely go these days. It's not the money. It's not even necessarily having a baby (although that is a factor). It's more the total lack of enjoyment I experienced for the last two seasons I had a Season Ticket. Add in the detachment between the club and the town (I honestly hand on heart don't kn...

Re: Clement

Think the biggest failing in transfers over the summer was not who we got in, but who we didn’t get out Agreed. But thats a club manufactured problem as well. Take Aluko, for instance. He's on a 4 year lucrative contract. We cant even manage him out of the club, because his contract with us is like...

Re: Clement

If we sack Clement now, itll be like McDermott's first sacking - the manager being a fall guy for the failings of the other non-player staff. If any non-playing staff should be the first to go, its Tevreden. We need somebody at board level, or one level below, who has experience in building a squad...
