Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Would seem like a backwards step for Poch to me. It'll take at least a full season before Utd could challenge to the extent Spurs are currently managing, so he's just burning a season with a greater possibility of the sack when there are clubs with better trophy prospects in their immediate future ...

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Depends on how much cash Spurs give him to spend. If he is limited by budget constraints relating to the new ground then he will be out the door, he was pissed off enough this summer with the lack of signings so can't see him putting up with it again. Was he? There's been a lot of comment in the me...

Can we all at least agree that Jorabchian is precisely the sort of influence we don't need in the boardroom.

Re: New Manager

Seems to be selecting the match day squad without fear. Easy to fill with established pros. Instead going for the players with character. Who want to pull the shirt on. The ommissions speak volumes about desire and commitment. Knowing the U23's is a definate bonus. What omissions are there really t...

Re: New Manager

Marshall is accidently now getting himself into a good position. If he is in charge for Middlesbrough and we pick up a win I think he gets it until the end of the season. Really would worry me in the January window though, can't see the owners trusting him with any cash. Might be a case of just doi...

Re: Injury & Suspension Watch : 2018/2019

Same for Ilori perhaps? Maybe there's some interest in him as well. I assume Andresson will be available from 1 January as well? There's no way a team in the middle of a relegation battle drops far and away their best defender the best part of a month before a transfer window opens to ensure fitnes...

Re: BFTG Rotherham

They did, but I can't say I KNOW it was Clement's fault I'm not sure you can say Kelly did. And Swift has been a massive disappointment since his first injury. Kelly was getting endless stick under Stam. I actually thought he was a bit better this season than last season. Equally though. Blackett, ...

Re: RUMOUR: Phil Parkinson to be named Manager Monday

Lol at preferring a no mark foreign manager with no English league experience, over a club legend with lots of relevant experience.

Also lol at giving r4e oxygen by engaging with the weirdo.

Re: BFTG Rotherham

Looked to me like Swift had been given freedom to try stuff. He was SO much better. Remember when Stam micro-managed every ounce of flair out of the players? Swift (and Kelly and Barrow) regressed under Clement, imo. They did, but I can't say I KNOW it was Clement's fault I'm not sure you can say K...

Re: Gomes is now 1st choice!

Well, you've completely missed my point Ian which is that since we have established ourselves as a Tier 2 club, we have very rarely appointed anyone with significant experience and when we have, it has generally been when we have been in a stronger position to pick and chose our appointments. We se...

Re: New Manager

One thing jumps out. Eza was signed on loan (in desperation) mid-season, so that means you don't have many of Clement's Summer window signings in your team. (Yiadom, plus Baldock, who to me isn't a 90-min player, and who I might replace as starter anyway with Barrow, because there is no winger or p...

Re: New Manager

Well I don’t agree with that line up or formation and won’t be alone in that view. Not much pace going forward in that side. Ilori should be nowhere near the starting line up and Meite really is a centre forward. I quite like Baldock but we need some pace in the side. But that's my point. Our best ...

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, Bullivant or Clement - because they've all managed in the Championship (or equiv) with us. In fact the only one it would rule...
