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...

..and Rinomhota & Loader have taken up 1st team duties. They’re missed.

They've both been in the first team a little while longer, but yeah it will have some impact.

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 ...

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...

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.

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.

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...
