Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (h) sponsored by oh no, not another Saturday home game

Well I am now firmly planted in the "Clement out" club. I argued long and often that changing managers quickly is too short-termist and that success is best built on consistency but I'm done with him. I don't care if he follows this up with 10 game winning streak. He can do nothing to red...

Re: Relegation Watch

50 with Betway. Would still take a freak set of results, but I'm not taking any chances. That 50-1 is AMAZING. They are 66-1 on SKY It means we have to lose OK but we SHOULD lose at Cardiff It means Birmingham need a point. They will probably be about 2-1 or 5-2 for a WD Barnsley need a win, Burton...

Re: Stam Gone

"Jaap deserved a lot better," Gunter told BBC Radio Wales. "It's a real blow that a change has been made". "Jaap Stam is the best club manager I've worked for," added Gunter. "The things he did for the club, the squad and for players personally were really refreshi...

Strange appointment given his recent failings

Brian Clough failed at Brighton and Leeds before winning two European cups with Forest not that hes in that class .

Re: CONFIMRED - Paul Clement appointed as new Royals boss

He has the contacts, both here and abroad, which should enable access to some players that we otherwise wouldn't have. And if we somehow get promoted, he has PL experience, too. You never know how things will pan out, but he brings a fair amount to the table. Will be interesting to see how many of ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Paul Clement appointed as new Royals boss

I really don't get the Swansea criticism. This is a side that have been in trouble for a couple of years now, and are only in the PL to be in danger of relegation because he saved them first time round. It's not like Swansea are as established a PL side as we are Championship, or as big size wise f...

Re: POLL: Paul Clement in... are we still going down?

Hmmm. Well, its important to make the right appointment, so that you aren't changing again soon. Its nothing to do with Stam in that respect. He's gone. If you are making a choice, its important to make the right choice, at any given time. I don't disagree mate. My point was purely in response to t...

Re: Definitive Paul Clement whelmguage

I am very whelmed. Jaap has gone and a new manager is here! Peter Sutcliffe could be taking over for all I care as long as Stam isn't here I am happy! Not a bad shout - very effective on the attack, although ultimately his poor defence was his downfall. Tactics were his downfall. Can't believe we'v...
