Re: The Local Journo Thread

It says something about the breakdown of the relationship between the club and the local press that the most ITK journalist hasn't even reported directly on the club for 2 years. Watts got on with Tevreden, and had long-standing contacts with other club people. Note he also seemed to get on with th...

Re: Gomes is now 1st choice!

it applies to anyone with little or no management experience or little experience of English football below tier one. Well, that would rule out most managers we've appointed in the past 35 years. It wouldn't rule out Rodgers, Coppell, Pardew, McDermott, Clarke, Stam, Gooding, Quinn, McGhee, Bulliva...

Re: New Manager

Yep. Think that was the general feel, that he really lost any support after that awful game. Not just the result, but the pitiful performance and attitude of both the players and Stam himself. If not that game, would have sacked him after Brum a few weeks later Did you notice that not really a lot ...

Re: New Manager

I agree but why sack Clement two days before the game? Surely he should have been given the Sheffield game rather than someone with absolutely no experience of managing senior team football. I'd have thought given the timing, they had someone to bring in almost instantly to take the Sheffield game ...

Re: BFTG Sheffield

The fitness they lack is in their heads. They just don’t think or do things quickly enough. Massively relates to confidence, that. A nervous player will, depending on their own inclination, either dither or panic, while in possession. Neither is conducive to good attacking football. Similarly a ner...

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: New Manager

They showed a clear shot on the telly of Howe, with Joorabchian (or someone who looked a lot like him) sat next to him, looking bored, playing with his phone. Was at the game so didn't see this. Did anyone snap a picture from their TV of this, didn't see one on Twitter? https://pbs.twimg.com/media/...

Re: New Manager

There's no way any of our players are going that kind of money in the near future, so I wouldn't just be surprised, I'd be absolutely amazed!!! Why would anyone pay £5m for Swift or £4m for Ilori or Barrow? It's well and good talking up these fees and suggest League One clubs would be interested in...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Out of curiosity, went into Wikipedia to have a look at Scott Marshall's career, as I knew next to nothing about him. Came across this little gem, which maybe puts some of our own defenders into context. In August 1998, Dave Jones signed him for Southampton on a free transfer. Saints thought they ha...

Re: Nigel Howe appointed new CEO

Obviously Howe was brought in to do a clean sweep - Steven Falk is now gone as well.

In fact the only senior figures brought in that I can think of that are still here are Scott Marshall and Ged Roddy - as the Academy seems to be doing well, would be a bit of a shock if they get culled also.
