  1. Just as importantly as new players is he going to be allowed to bring in extra coaching staff to help?
  2. Maybe saying any less than three points is unacceptable means that if the players don't deliver this then he's given up on them and he will resign?
  3. I think the main thing Monk looks for in a player is mental strength. He keeps repeating that in almost every interview he gives and I'm sure he realised some time ago that most of the current group don't have it. That's the kind of player Wilder seems to go for and it's worked so hopefully any new recruits we sign will have that a a main prerequisite.
  4. If the best our "expanded team of football experts" can come up with is Da Cruz, Windass and Winall we've got problems.
  5. Maybe he thought that by doing the decent thing and being honest with them it would give them a chance to begin planning for their future and that they would repay that honesty by being fully committed till the end of the season? If so looks like he misjudged them
  6. I think Monk is trying to make the best of what he's got which is not a lot. As the saying goes you can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear.
  7. Sounds as though he's living in a different world to the rest of us. The players would do well to remember this and pull there fingers out Bill Shankly Quotes Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that.
  8. Bulk buying I guess same as Witherspoon's. I had my own small pub and I could buy small quantities of real ale at about £72 for a 9 gallon keg. I don't think the club will buy enough beer to get big discounts.
  9. I think those prices are what leased pubs normally pay for their beer. As I said previously in freehouses the cost is more like £1 a pint
  10. To be fair a pint would cost the club approximately£1 a pint.
  11. Good first impressions. Nice to hear someone that didn't harper on about the opposition's strengths.
  12. Good post and I think youre spot on about Bullen. I think he has limitations as a coach and certainly as a manager, but he obviously tows the company line an says the right things to the chairman. I suspect this is because being at Wednesday is a nice steady job for him and it allows his wife to pursue her business in Sheffield and for his family to have a nice comfortable living without having to regularly uproot themselves.
  13. Probably as good as we could expect. Would have been a lot happier if he had brought some new backroom staff with him though with some new ideas. I fear the status quo remaining which I feel has been stale for a long time. Anyway wish him the best and give him a 7
