  1. I don't think it was his command of English .. I think there was more to it .. from building a solid base and picking players reguarly including some seasoned pro's .. i'm adamant that he was given a remit to refresh the squad, phase out big earners, bring in youth with the prospect of selling and work from there - unfortunately we didn't have the luxury of time to do that an the players coming in weren't mentally tough enough or perhaps good enough at the time for a championship battle - hence Bullen bringing Westwood and Hutch back when he was caretaker ... As above .. I'm in the same camp as you ..
  2. Consistency has gone down the drain .. doesn't turn it on enough for us to warrant a regular place in the team .. also lot of niggly injuries at minute
  3. I reckon Monk will get a tune out of Rhodes ..
  4. Absolutely And some fans and chairmen forget this .. all this "playing the XXX TEAM way" after binning a manager off - the aim of the game is to win regardless of how its done .. sometimes we over complicate simple matters!
  5. Newcastle and Norwich fans gave us a taster of what he was like .. flattered to deceive, poor end product .. Not happening for him right now. Gone right off the boil and yeah I won't be surprised seeing Reach start games in there with Luongo brought in to midfield .. Would give us a much more stronger option when we are defending and pressing in our own half
  6. Modern day fans with social media - bloody awful The number of ridiculous posts on twitter, facebook and the internet in general has crept up to disastrous proportions .. try reasoning with these idiots though .. like trying to educate pork!
  7. ££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££ I'd keep Bullen .. and I don't mind who Monk brings in neither, Beattie and Clotet would be great. Regardless of whether Beatties played for the stain, he has no affiliation with thim in the sense of supporting them or a tattoo on his arm of the crest or something! If he can get our strikers firing, especially Rhodes and Winnall then quids in!
  8. Hutch should be permanent captain anyway but in Lees absence should be him with Borner as vice
  9. I thought he was class and added something different. Didn't feel that he was as bad as the Reading and Everton reports made out? Would have taken him on a permanent deal as well!
  10. Always thought Reach would be better off in the front 3. Doesn't offer much from central midfield
  11. Depends how you are going to set up .. you can play 2 in the middle if your wingers and strikers will be making nuisances of themselves in the final third .. You can play with a CDM if you have a player, especially of Bannans quality pulling strings around the centre circle and forward What we see from them though is that they drop so far deep to either collect the ball or to defend that we then end up over run in the middle of the park .. Hutch and Luongo would work I reckon with Luongo driving up and down and Hutch offering protection in front of the back 4. The wingers need more involvement too coming and collecting the ball and driving forward with it .. and as someone else alluded to .. hold up play up front needs to happen. can't have the ball coming back to us everytime its lumped up top
  12. I think this needs to happen - bring in an experienced assistant, even an ex manager to help him along and some experienced coaches. Most of hte backroom staff have been promoted from within
  13. Pulis is vvank .. one of the most negative managers tactically ever. Literally just grind out shiddy victories ... awful .. be lucky to get mid table drawing 0-0 all time!
  14. If he'd have just stuck to the first season formula (on the pitch) and not been so relaxed at training and bottling it at crucial times then we'd have got to the so called promised land .. but i guess thats the margins between success and failure. ultimately we failed twice under his stewardship. The defeat to Huddersfield quite possibly one of the worst results in his tenure given how easy it was to get to the final and beyind. Reading ffs
  15. This is a HUGE factor in modern soceity .. the ability to post almost anonymously, without repercussions or reprisals, without fear of action.. some of the stuff you see on Twitter and Facebook is absolutely scandalous and people get away with it and aren't called out or named and shamed .. sometimes there is an army of trolls or negative cynics and people that literally type dogsh*t out without engaging their brains before pressing send .. Its horrible. I don't know why people feel the need to do it .. and you try defending whoever and you get an army coming back at you and people liking their comments or whatever. gross This weekend there was an indian festival near where i live at a lake and the level of racist posts was unbelieveable. Its 2019 ffs ..
  16. Early days yet but i see where you are coming from .. Look at other teams though historically and this season, Wagner promoted with Huddersfield on a shoestring - no champ experience, Wolves promoted on a big budget under Esperito Santo, no champ experience, Barnsley promoted to this league under Stendal, no champ experience, Charlton sitting pretty in 2nd under Bowyer, no experience of the championship, Bilic at West Brom, Scott Parker at Fulham etc etc then at the bottom Cocu at Derby, Cook at Wigan and Grant McCann at Hull swings and roundabouts .. perhaps the fan base expecting too much. Many see us as a team that should be top 6 for the whole season .. we are a medicore mid table team and perhaps particular managers might come in with a bit of razzamatazz and lift us a bit like Bruce did (upturn in results/performances in general) but if Bullen is afforded time and we get behind him and the team then things might come good who knows ...
  17. Unfortunately we haven't offloaded any of the younger players in a loan capacity. Would have been good for them to get some first team football lower down the pyramid and come back like Judd

I think it possibly goes to show how much fan expectation is that we should be winning shed loads of games instead of losing or drawing ... maybe we expect too much Alan Irvine at 40% as well .. blimey!
  19. Went for Borner. Best of a really bad bunch ...
  20. He's usually blasting them from far out though .. I reckon coming into the box late or during from the edge of the box he'd bag a few. Plus it allows us to have a more defensive minded player on the pitch behind him. But guess it's all about opinions
  21. Im not so sure about that .. QR have been a mediocre outfit for few seasons now ... We still need a little bit extra for that top 6 in my opinion .. couple of signings, pacy striker as well as some authority figures. Still lacking leadership since loovens left and nothing off the pitch
  22. He just reminds me of a juan mata/ pedro player. They are never played in the middle are they .. always usually up top or that bit behind the forwards
  23. Dom Iorfa at sixes and sevens a lot today .. ball watching a lot And our midfield today ... laughable. Absolute acres for QPR to move the ball around
