    Someone told me Atdhe was suspended for the Malta game

    If we were relegated...

    I think he should be playing Joao. But we know he will play one of Matias and or Forestieri if fit.

    International Break

    With Vedat Muriqi doing so well up front for Kosovo, it's doubtful Atdhe will get much game time.

    Jokanovic Anyone.

    I'm sure Jos said in one if his pressers that," Hooper may be back to help us near the end of the season." When I heard that I immediately thought , around March or April Then. I don't think there's much chance of seeing him before then , IMO. FFP FFS

    You're doing a great job, Ethel.....don't let the barstewards get you down.
  8. De Bilde should be nowhere near any of these lists!

    We need to play them, will the manager do that?

    If we were relegated...

    Looking at Joa, Bannon, FF and Reach, we should get 15 to 20 million for those in January, then sign 4 loan players to get us through to the summer. of course we need a decent manager as well, that could be the biggest sticking point

    That's clearly right about the manager. On the chairman, I have some sympathy but unfortunately he seems to have taken a big punt on an outcome that was possible, but always odds against. I doubt you can spend heavily enough to almost guarantee promotion and I wouldn't advise trying the experiment; but we were nowhere near doing so. That was unwise in retrospect, but I think it was pretty clearly unwise at the time.

    We may look back a little further down the line and see Carlos' tenure and his inexperienced chairman's backing in a better light given how close they/we came and how if we'd had a touch more luck they'd have possibly cracked it. None of the British names continually thrown up for the job who were realistic appointments have done anything in comparison since then.

    Jokanovic Anyone.

    I aint got a license but i'd get someone to pick him up

    Jokanovic Anyone.

    "Paixao also informed the Thai investor that he and his boss Nelio Lucas still considered Petrescu or Slavisa Jokanovic (n.red. – the Serb incredibly left Watford only three days earlier after he got the club promoted to the Premier League) to be the perfect match for Sheffield’s ambitions."
  15. Martin Taylor came with a fantastic reputation and the Watford fans were dismayed when he left them to join us. Bit like Abdi who followed.

    CC took to it pretty easily 2 out of 3 seasons reaching the playoffs. We have had a few managers who have had experience of managing Championship clubs and have now disappeared off the face of the earth.

    If we were relegated...

    Its just to early to say what will happen, certainly with any certainty . We are currently about where I personally though we would end up. Nothing to suggest we cant go higher than i thought. Conversely we could end up bottem. After the xmas period, we should have a rough idea. Currently all in our hands.

    Where have I said they can’t be as you put it, Johhny Foreigners? Your words not mine. I say experienced managers familiar with the Championship. So,they can be from the continent, as long as they’ve already got the experience of managing in the Championship, and been successful at it. Not learning their Championship trade with Sheffield Wednesday. We should not be an apprenticeship scheme for unknown and obscure managers unfamiliar with English football. This does not align with a serious attempt to reach the Premiership. It’s just playing about, taking unnecessary gambles at best.

    I saw on FB Jos was seen back in Holland this week. If this is true it's a good indication of his commitment to the cause. At a time when we need organising, he's nowhere to be seen.

    If we were relegated...

    Current form has us averaging 1.177 points per game which if it continues would give us a total of 54 points for the season. Agree we had a really bad run of 4 games but prior to that we got to 6th in the table. I think it all depends on how we do over the next few games.

    If we were relegated...

    Current form suggests we won’t. Current match statistics suggests we won’t. Great to have confidence though.

    I think the question is how many foreign managers had decent budgets and the ability to build a team and how many are in our situation where it is purely about motivating what you have? The tried and tested guys are a safer bet and I think that’s all people are saying.
  25. Well you might say we have made progress since then. That was Div 3, attendance 11,345. Won 4-0. We climbed up to 16th from 20th and finished 20th. I was probabably in the West Stand & it was the season we had to beat Southend last match to ensure safety and not go into Div IV. So prior to that game the lowest posistion in our history.

    unfortunately for us (from what i've read this week) our first two choices for gray's successor weren't as 'available' as we'd either hoped, or were led to believe, thus we ended up with old 'one idea' himself. there are more bad 'british' managers about than good ones. there are less bad european/continental/south american managers about than good ones, unfortunately we didn't roll a 'double six' with ours, i hope, and like to think we haven't repeated the 'mistake' again.
  27. Well someone was clearly blind. Was one of the other two Jordan Rhodes by any chance
