Re: GOMES OUT!

Will be even funnier if the next guy in says "right, all players to get their chance to impress, and brings McCleary, Baldock and Gunter back into 1st team training" Vat of popcorn at the ready. Yep, that would be a lot of players vying for 11 places. Hope the new bloke likes our new sign...

Old Man Andrews We need Ian Royal at the helm. Safe pair of hands.

Shame on you for no Gareth Ainsworth as a poll option too.


Now with added Gareth.


That reset the pole :|

Prolly just as well. It was fairly unanimous for Chris Hughton? :oops:

Re: GOMES OUT!

We have two wing backs who aren't really wing backs, we have 3 really good centre halves who don't seem at all comfortable with the system, we play two creative midfielders which leaves a hole in the middle when we defend and he keeps changing the front two. Revert back to 424, put Moore into a def...

Re: GOMES OUT!

I really really would like to see Hughton appointed. But he will cost ! Yep, he will command a pretty decent salary. On paper it's a good shout, but obv there's difference between wanting and actually getting him. The 'fit' has to be right on both sides and there needs to be the backing. Did a grea...

Re: GOMES OUT!

We miss Barrow's pace and speed on the counter attack. He is also a winger that can beat full backs and provide service to the front strikers. So the loss of Barrow is one reason for our struggles this season. But this was probably outside of Gomes control and probably Gomes would have him in the s...

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

Well blow me down with a feather. 99 votes 49 in 50 out. Divided the fans or what :shock: Yep, right down the middle. So, if he goes, is there anyone out there that wouldn’t be ok with Chris Hughton as his successor? Because as far as unifying the fan base, it occurred to me that Hughton just might...

Re: GOMES OUT!

It's nearly always a case of 'the king is dead, long live the king' with managers, but I do think I'd struggle to get back behind a Reading team for a while if they sacked Gomes One of the issues I have is that he hasn't found the formula to win games 1-0. He's never won a game 1-0 with us. Teams t...

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

Give me an argument why he should stay. The "we keep sacking managers" arguement is not a positive reason. That won't change our position. . Would be a bad decision to get rid of Gomes now IMHO despite an awful start to the season - which obviously cannot be ignored. Reasons why i think h...

Re: GOMES OUT!

I'm going to disagree. On the basis of the performance against Cardiff and his international performances the transfer fee and anything less than 50k a week is an absolute steal and most of us at the time were thinking we got ourselves a bargain. Of course hindsight is a wonderful thing and his les...

Re: Worst start for many years.

In the Championship there is a very fine line between the two on any given week. Look at the Stoke and Huddersfield squads for example, are they poor on paper? Arguably not. Preston are riding high with what is a very average squad on paper as are a much changed Swansea team. The Championship isn't...

Re: BFTG Bristol

There's a subscription based coaching thing on Twitter called Coaches Voice. They released some previews a couple of weeks ago, one of which was Jose Gomes. One thing I remember (though not specifically a centre back in the penalty box demo) was for players to mark spaces when defending outside the...

Re: GOMES OUT!

If we're paying Puscas anything more than about 20k we're crazy. And it should be plenty less. That's £1m a year. Given that we paid £8m to sign him on a five-year contract, I reckon he's in a good position to demand £30k. It's a seller's market and he'd just signed a new contract with Inter Milan....

Re: GOMES OUT!

until we sack him...just like everybody else has. if Hughton is as good as everyone says, and the squad is too, then we can afford to wait a few more games. . What if he takes us down? Is this now a risk worth taking after several years of dire football and manager turnover? If we're 8 points adrif...

Re: BFTG Bristol

I suppose you're right in the sense that O'Shea should or will come in for more criticism given our defensive frailties. Although, I'm unsure of the exact extent of his responsibility and duties at this point. Anyway, in short, I don't recall OShea being hailed as the 2nd coming as either a player o...

Re: BFTG Bristol

Exactly this. Exactly nothing. When we signed O'Shea, who said he was the '2nd coming'? Name them. The signing was very unpopular and universally opposed in here. We are mostly on the same page then. Hurrah. Hurrah :P Wwhen O'Shea was announced as a coach, I don't recall much euphoria? I do recall ...
