Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

I would take him in a heartbeat. He's done incredibly well at Bolton considering the transfer embargoes and lack of funding he's had to deal with. He's also proven that he can adapt styles of play very well on a tight to nothing budget. Bolton aren't the most attractive team to watch at times, espec...

Re: Solutions to problems (instead of moaning)

This is sounds like a mid year appraisal that went horribly bad.

Are you actually being serious about this?

Re: How long does Clement have?

Yeah. Adkins: 50/50 not convinced it was that bad and he was scapegoated for Anton's mess. We hadn't spent years proving sackings didn't work though. Clarke: Position untenable. His success was built on Blackman being in the form of his life which had already ended too, we were nose diving McDermot...

Re: How long does Clement have?

Clinging on to the hope that a new manager is going to save the day makes little sense. Time to rebuild. To move forward we need to suffer the bad performances. Ok. At what point do you say it’s time to go? Do you give Clement the entire season even if it means we go down? I think it would be very ...

Re: CONFIRMED - Yakou Meite

Spin off thread - That guy played for us? The Adkins/Clarke era is good for that. Robert Dickie Jure Travner Zat Knight (didn't realised he'd joined us!) Sadly I remember those 3. I remembered Lisandro Semedo the other week. Did he ever play for us? No. Semedo plays every week for Fortuna Sittard. ...

Re: Next Reading Manager

Not really sure but I don't want to see another manager here who is described as a "great coach", used to work in the Prem or worked with some great managers as an assistant. Someone who can take a fresh approach without any past coaching glories!!

Re: BFT - I don’t know what to call it

I agree with what has been mostly said but I find the Gunter ratings ridiculous. I'm not his biggest fan at all but was one of our best players lastnight. Stop being so bloody bias and applying favouritism to your ratings and give an honest review for once.

Re: Clement

I'm getting a little sick and tired of fans blaming easy targets or players they don't like to be quite honest. Lack of passion and commitment wasn't the main problem and nor was it wide spread amongst the team. I see Kelly and Swift are getting blamed again and I can't see why. If a player is tryin...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Norwich City (h) sponsored by Andy Hughes

I'd argue the Iranian fella has been signed to get the best out of Kelly to be honest. Kelly isn't as bad as people make out and he's doing the jobs in midfield that he quite frankly is not his strongest asset. With a big, strong and athletic midfielder alongside him that can do all the dirty work ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Norwich City (h) sponsored by Andy Hughes

My team for Naarige: Walker ________ Yiadom Ilori Moore Blackett (if fit, if not Gunter) _________ Bacuna Kelly Sims _________ Swift ________ Barrow (if not breastfeeding) Baldock And, when our Iranian international is up to speed, I'd slide him in for Kelly.... assuming he is actually half decent....

Re: Gourlay

The bloke has to be on borrowed time. I have no issues with the owners and don’t think any fans should, we could have owners that pick the team etc but we don’t, they’ve invested (record signing, summer 2017, Moore situ where they could have cashed in) and let the football side get on with it. I wi...

Jesus I came across all John Smithy there. :lol:

Re: Rumour: Jaakkola to Rotherham

If this is true we'll probably get Krul in. Clement doesn't trust academy players and you will see that as he loans more them out. I guarantee we will see Smith, Rinomhota, Richards, Axel, Loader, McIntyre and a couple others get farmed out soon.
