  1. The Ifollow subscription doesn't include league cup games.
  2. There are some fantastic people on this forum, in every part of our ground, and working at our club. Well done everyone, you should be very proud of yourselves. I hope this gesture has brought a piece of happiness to this lady and her family at such a tough time. I'm sure all our thoughts are with them.
  3. I agree with the OP. In fact I've just posted more or less the same observation in another thread before I read this one. Here's my post......... Let's look at this objectively...... Before his appointment as Head Coach Stuart Gray was Caretaker Manager but knew that somebody would be appointed above him (in the position of Manager) and he would then be second in command. He was always likely to receive an extension to his contract as Coach and this was confirmed by Milan in interviews. With his appointment as Head Coach Stuart Gray still knows that somebody will be appointed above him (in the position of Director of Football) and he will then be second in command. He has got the extension to his contract as promised. The change in title for Gray has passified him and the fan base without the club committing to a great deal financially and minimised the gamble on Gray, it's given us the stability we need and will keep the motivation the players are demonstrating. If Stuart Gray continues to develop the team and achieve our objectives I'm sure we will not see a Director of Football at Hillsborough, if he doesn't do too well I'm sure somebody with experience will be brought in to take charge. It's amazing what can be achieved with a bit of a pay rise and a more impressive job title in business. Milan is quite a shrewd man!
  4. I think you will find it was Tuesday when you enjoyed the game, we lost at Blackpool on Saturday! In comparison to recent years it was better. But in reality it was quite mediocre other than two great strikes from a player on loan. Yes, there was an improvement but I wouldn't jump in feet first. Dave Jones hardly knew where the training ground was, the one preparing the players for games was the man some of you are campaigning for. Dave Jones allowed his coaching staff to assist in picking the side it would appear. If you watched the substitutions during games they were usually decided upon not by Dave Jones but by the man that is apparently our new saviour. Let's not clutch at straws. Let's find a real manager.
  5. We have won one game and people want to give the management job to the coach who has been a major contributor to the awful football we have been playing. How you can feel that this man, together with someone who has no coaching or management experience whatsoever at senior level can take our club forward is beyond me. Let's not get carried away by a win or two, let's make a serious appointment of a man with a true knowledge of football, who has experience and who plays the game in a way that entertains. Football is supposed to be a form of entertainment!
  6. One of the worst days in anyone's life, I hope all goes well.
  7. It is nothing to do with contracts or a transfer. He will be back soon and playing at the top of his game.
  8. ???? I don't understand what you are trying to say. Could you explain a little clearer please.
  9. If we appoint him until the end of the season we must be mental. If he took us down he would enter United folklore as the greatest United hero in history. The bloke has got the mindset and hates us enough to do it for the notoriety and hero worship that would come his way. STAY WELL CLEAR!!
  10. Because posters were slagging people off and getting nasty without being in full possession of the facts. I didn't think it was fair and tried to get people to think and give the debate some balance in order to protect people from criticism who didn't deserve it.
  11. It isn't really any of our business. I will leave you to draw your own conclusions.
  12. He's currently the most realistic choice. He has plenty of experience including recent experience with us. Whilst he was coaching at S6 we started to play real football and we climbed the league. I'd love to see him back. Why do people think he wouldn't want to manage a big Championship club? He is currently managing a reserve team. The club may be high profile but the position isn't.
  13. Chris Kirkland has not been playing for a good reason. That is one of the things that Dave Jones can not be blamed for. It is nothing to do with contracts and transfers. He will be back in due course.
  14. Kirkland will still be "dropped".
