Data from Companies House states termination on 14 Nov. Only got the email on this after the announcement. Nevertheless, how does DelBoy know?

Snowflake Royal Well, regardless of whether he was any good or awful, this can't help but lift the atmosphere in the stands if not necessarily inside the club.

I would love it, just love it, if we got Hammond and Howe back in. Not sure Coppell is really cut out for the DoF or CEO roles. Love him to bits, but don't want to just crowbar him in for the sake of having him back.

I hope this improves things for Clement, really like him compared to some of the tossers we've had recently.


Hammond who worked wonders at West Brom and Nigel we’ll be bigger than Arsenal Howe, no thanks and no thanks.
Good news about Gourlay though.

I suspect it was very much the owners choice

They must be very frustrated - bought a club on the verge of the Prem and gone hugely backwards ever since despite plenty of investment on the playing side and also sorting out Bearwood.

I’m not surprised they’ve acted.

Nick Hammond I would have back tomorrow
Steve Coppell has effectively retired from any active part in football (too much hassle?)
Brian McDermott - I am still unashamedly an admirer of him BUT he is settled at Arsenal. Would you go back to a club which has twice sacked you?

I’ve got great memories of McDermott’s first spell but it so rarely works so well second time around as was proven although he was treated pretty shoddily. Just look at Kitson, Shorey and Little. The time has passed and we have to move on.
As for Coppell I doubt whether he still has the hunger and drive. Being a Championship manager is such a slog.
Yes to Hammond although I have reservations. He was markedly less successful in his final years with us and struggled at West Brom.

Just to throw another pebble into the water....

I wish we could have Jon Fearn back.

A big +1. Why do our players always take so long to get back from injury? Ezatolahi was supposed to be two to three weeks. It’s now five weeks and running. The latest in a long line of players taking longer than expected to get back to fitness.

I understand that the medical/physio staff were Mr. Gourlay's appointees, so there might be some movement there.

Do you know any more about this?

In my (only) rumour post I said how I heard from an insider something along the lines that we got rid of a perfectly good medical team and brought in a plastic surgeon instead. I can't see this being the case but having said that the government did bring in a clueless surgeon to advise on General Practice in the country, so it's not the first time a medically clueless glorified butcher has been used in place of an actual doctor.

Hammond and Howe who oversaw the best period in our history and two Championship titles.
