Re: Gomes is now 1st choice!

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...

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.

Re: New Manager

I'm starting to think we should save appointing Parky until June, by which time the next one will have gotten us relegated and been sacked.

Re: Gomes is now 1st choice!

Say no to yet another flake with no knowledge of us or the Championship who'll be in for a rude awakening at how tough the Championship is, how shit we are and how much utter mediocrity costs over here. This would pretty much apply to many foreign managers, wouldn't it? Are you saying we should nev...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Rotherham United (a) sponsored by Dick Habbin

And as we know second half tend to be an issue for areafing, especially the first 15/20 minutes of them.. Not under Scott Marshall I'm assuming I'm missing some sort of sarcasm / joke here. We were dire immediately after the break against Sheffield, almost conceding immediately. And were basically ...

So a Clement signing sets up a Clement signing to score in Clement's shape in our easiest of the current six game run.

Re: Injury & Suspension Watch : 2018/2019

Harriott's a perfectly useful player, but shouldn't be ahead of McCleary or Barrow and it's not clear to me that he's a better option than Baldock, Loader, or Sims. No strong feeling either way - we wouldn't miss him if he went, but he could probably also do a good job if we threw him in. If he's n...

Re: New Ma

Clutching at straws. Seen so many inept performances in the past 12 months. That only way forward is to rebuild for the future. That's what Clement was doing, with an eye to the present. Summer transfer business on reflection was extremely poor. Without a resurgent Meite where would we be now. I di...

Re: New Manager

If I was Parky I’d want some assurance I'm not just getting sacked in four months if we're still in the relegation zone / get relegated though. He might want that (who wouldn’t?), but tbh not sure Parky’s achievements in footy management thus far are enough to leverage that. Would he command that a...

Re: New Manager

Only one manager has done that, the rest is based on paper talk, and all the papers seem to be contradicting each other, so go figure Jokanovic? Bruce? According to Watts they ruled themselves out. Maybe he has it wrong. Sky reported that Jokanovic had ruled himself out a few days ago. Then some ot...

Re: New Manager

Parky might take us down (shrug) but could/would be the guy to take us up again...but then what? Well, if we'd come up, we'd have a team in form used to winning. If it happened under Parky it would have to have been in one, maybe two seasons. So you'd obviously have to see how he could do with a te...

Re: New Manager

I expect Parky would take it in a shot. Ainsworth as well Bruce, Jokanovic maybe not. Yeah, you've got to question how long Parky can stay at Bolton under difficult conditions before he needs to move on / they panic sack him to try to buy the points they need. If I was him I'd want some assurance I...
