Re: Next Manager

Just picking up on the knowing of this division being important, take a look at the top where a certain Slaven Bilic is doing ok having previously managed at international level and then getting sacked by West Ham. Most managers, even some of the very best, get the sack during their careers so IMHO...

Re: GOMES OUT!

I'm assuming that no one was calling for Gomes to be sacked after we beat Huddersfield 2-0 away? So we're talking about a change of mind after 6 matches . . . . 6 matches . . . which include two away games against teams currently in the top six (one of which we drew). Look - I thought that hiring th...

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

I heard the same thing from a separate source. Might all be coming from the same rumour mill - but mine wasn't twitter.

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

I've always believed that unless a team is under real threat of relegation - or that there is something blindingly obviously wrong at the club - that a manager should always be given two full season. Though, I also believe that you shouldn't hire managers that have no record of experience at your le...

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

I haven't seen any of the games this season, so I can't comment on performance. But overall i'd say that results are disappointing but not really surprising given the circumstances. I don't think fans appreciate just how difficult it is to get an entirely new team to perform. Go and look back at the...

Re: GOMES OUT!

Are you guys being serious with this or just blowing off steam? Because .. . . if you can't handle a bad few weeks then it might be time to shut RFC down as there's no point carrying on. You'll never be pleased. It's not just a bad few weeks though, is it? It's a bad 2 and a half years... patience ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Middlesbrough (a) sponsored by a Simon Cox chip

Was anyone really expecting an entirely new team to be consistently good straight-away?

Other clubs in the past have spent far more money than us, with much more experienced managers than us, and still struggled for the first few seasons.

sandman Anyone else getting the feeling that whilst Gomes was the one to bring back some positivity to the club he may not be the one to take it to the next stage?

Re: Have we sold the Mad Stad to the owners/someone else?

The situation is like if you had your own plumbing company and (for some reason) decided to buy the van that the 'company' owns. Technically speaking, your company has exchanged an asset for cash and this impacts tax and whatever. But in the real-world, you still have the same van that you can use w...

Club are offering free travel so you could effectively go away and watch your team, who are showing good signs, play away at Huddersfield for £30. And people complain.

Re: Huddersfield (A)

windermereROYAL Seems to be an ongoing theme that the Yorkshire clubs charge 30quid plus.


It's really annoying as I live in Yorkshire, but i'm not paying £30+ for a ticket out of principle.

I like having 3 at the back - especially when your full backs aren't the best defenders and you're not playing with wingers.

Re: BFTG - Wycombe Away

In a word - Disjointed. But kind of understandably so.... There is some quality raw material to work with. Jose just needs to settle on his way of playing and let the players bed in. Massive difference to where we were a year ago. Agreed. I mean, even the season we got promoted under McDermott (ble...
