This, of course, guarantees we will be relegated.


That is so snowball.

Fair enough.

I guess my point was that anything you see during the warm up is largely just a small bit of man-management and motivation as opposed to coaching as such. Not that those aren't potentially important roles but not what I thought you meant by the lack coaching.

It would be massive if we stood a snowball in hell's chance of winning.

With every passing week, we look less likely to beat ANYONE and that includes Sunderland which (to state the blindingly obvious!) is why we haven't beaten ANYONE in 18 games.

While I accept all the problems at the club, as listed by IR above, run deep and will not be fixed over night, only removing Stam will give us any chance of survival this season.

If there's one person who won't fix anything, it's the man who has got just about everything wrong so far in this campaign and this is borne out by the fact that, since being kept on when most clubs would have removed him, things have gone from bad to worse. We might as well appoint Mickey Mouse than give Stam another day in charge of this team.

I've never bought into this notion that our players lack confidence in themselves. They, like most of us, lack confidence in what they are being asked to do by their manager and for that they have my deepest sympathy. They wouldn't be human if they weren't thinking "9 games and this nightmare is over"

While bringing someone in now may be a long shot, if we don't do what should have done months ago in removing Stam, this slow motion car crash is only going to end one way and my days of supporting this club are over for the foreseeable future.

They say it's the hope that kills you, well the idiots currently running this club no longer deserve our hope.

Wolves look to be quite pivotal in the relegation scrap - playing everyone at the bottom barring Barnsley (including Burton and us in their last two games)

This, of course, guarantees we will be relegated.

Truly awful website and app. Search function that doesn’t find anything is very frustrating

If they beat everyone they might keep us up
If they lose a few we might go down but the 106 record would be safe (they can still match it can't they?)

Staying up and losing record or relegation and record retained? Which would you choose?!

That question can only be answer if stam stays or goes.

Stay up and keep/lose record and keep stam? No thank you

The "help" is in the Philippines and an absolute joke.

Anyway, I got my £150 back, and now Stam is gone we are not going to be relegated
or finish bottom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This season getting closer and closer to paralleling 1997/1998

1997/98

Poor start
Picks up a bit
Utter collapse
Manager goes in mid March
1 game with caretaker
New manager
Relegated

2017/2018

Poor start
Picks up a bit
Utter collapse
Manager goes in mid March
