Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

I think the interview has hopefully cleared up a few things, especially for the Twitter mongs.

Time to get behind him as much as we can

However...if he was involved in identifying & signing Lucas Joao for £5m...that is concerning!

Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

Obviously I wish him well and I offer the team my full support..but I feel like this is very bad news. Anything that's not relegation would be a sucessfull season now. Same. But I think now is the time for us as a fanbase to ready ourselves for the real prospect of relegation. I mean, who doesn’t f...

Re: Next Manager

NewCorkSeth Wasnt Clarke rated highly as a coach? Doesnt guarentee being a good or even decent manager.


He had a credible spell in management at West Brom before we appointed him though

Roy Keane...shocking manager, even worse pundit. Big no for me. Makes Hughes seem an attractive proposition!

Hughton or Jokanovic

Re: Next Manager

It’s becoming boring supporting this club isn’t it - watching the same old mistakes being made, same poor recruitment every summer, same churn of staff The fact we’re sacking yet another manager is proof that we’re making the wrong decisions in the first place The personality has to fit. I’d say pro...

Re: BFTG Bristol

Maybe But the potential is there We have some skilful players but are very naive. We really lack technical ability upfront. I’m not accepting Loader, Joao, Meite, Puscas and Baldock are not good players who would thrive in the right environment and set up Maybe the issue is not their technical abil...

Re: Gomes, Should he stay or should he go? Mk2

What I want to see is a manager who can work with the players he inherits (Coppell, Pardew & Brian did this). Is that too much to ask nowadays?!

Re: BFT ???????????????????????????????????????????

Have we signed too many players again? Did we need to sign 3 strikers (inc Boye on loan)? Or would one of them have been adequate? It reminds me of when Clarke got in loads of players...impossible to keep them all happy. Did Gomes sign these players? Or was he given the squad and told to roll with i...

Re: GOMES OUT!

alfie9 Just seen the Meite contract, why are we handing out FOUR year deals to squad players??? This club will never learn


More to the point, why did we hand out a 4-yr deal to Joao when he’s been average his whole career?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Fulham (h) sponsored by a Yann Kermorgant penalty

The question is not whether we should go for him. It's whether we can convince him we're a good option. I actually think we'd be a good fit for him He's solid and would get us organised. Not sure about how entertaining his football is. oxf*rd entertaining. I just want to see a win occasionally. Bri...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Fulham (h) sponsored by a Yann Kermorgant penalty

Anyone else wishing we had given Novakovich a chance rather than spunking £13m on average strikers down the drain, and potentially putting ourselves in real financial trouble when we get relegated to League 1?!

Ok then...maybe that’s a bit OTT

Re: BFTG Swansea Away

Is Boye total pony? Would we be better off playing Garath McCleary? Imo? Yes. Boye is a show pony. In a side that controls the pitch he would be great but he is nowhere near good enough to play regularly in a struggling team at this level. He looks to be more of a winger than a striker to me - we’v...

Re: Puscas speculation.

We don't exactly try to play to his strengths, or give him a decent partner to work with. Or feed him much but scraps. Multiple times yesterday there was space for him to make runs behind the Swansea defence...he didn’t move, barely gave the midfield an option, resulting in them losing the ball or ...

5) Ejaria...it looks very silky going backwards & forwards...but it’s a bit of a waste of time if he’s not actually going to progress up the field much. Having said that...he did a great lay off to Barrett in the 2nd half Were you in the toilet when he went on that mazy 2nd half run beating 3 p...

Re: BFTG Swansea Away

Wow Swansea to Notts is a looong drive. Yiadom made it much more bearable though! Main questions for me: 1) Why did we spend £13m on bang average strikers? I’ll give them longer before coming to a firm conclusion...but for now we’ve signed lots of forward players who don’t look like they want to pla...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Swansea City (a) sponsored by Andy Legg & Jason Bowen

With away games we should def take a more defensive approach... Back to 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 Pele DM, Rino high energy box to box, Swift/Ejaria AM Then maybe Boye (who looks more of a winger than striker) 1 side, Meite the other, Puscas up top The 4-2-3-1 is always best for pitch coverage, but you are reli...
