  1. For me it’s simply a case of do we wait a month for the best manager that’s available and realistic option or do we rush and go for second best because they’re available now. I think DC picked the right option.

    Soz. It wasnt a real song suggestion, as a big fan of alliteration I’ll make it clearer next time when I’m being jovial.

    Millwall away is a fairly unique experience but I’ve never seen any bother there at all. If you travel in by train it’s safer than the average away day. Its probably helped by being a Tuesday night each time.

    From a Wigan fans forum

    There’s were few games more infuriating than Millwall away last season for the overplaying at the back. I lost count of how many times we played two or three very uncomfortable passes out from the back before, under pressure, clipping a ball aimlessly towards Stobbs and this surrendering possession. We just kept doing it and doing it until we were giving the ball away continuously in our own half. Was of no surprise to lose that game. I’ll take the long passes for now. Get the ball down in the final third and bodies up in support of Fletcher.
  7. While I agree to a point SJ plays an entirely different brand of football to the dull stuff Wagner had them playing. That would likely mean a fairly big overhaul of the squad and time. With the time limit on the parachute payments it’s imperative to bounce back. For me they need someone who’s style isn’t wildly different to Wagner, that’s the best chance of going straight back up without needing 10 in and 10 out in the Summer.
  8. I think Premier League recruitment nowadays involves a little more than being caught up in the hype of a couple of classy goals.

    Onto the FA Cup

    I’d go slight rotation to protect some players and give minutes to others. Dawson, Thorniley, Joey and Winnall in. Protect Westwood, Hutch, Fletcher and one other. Keep momentum going ideally against tough opposition.

    Is Steve Bruce the answer

    Steve Bruce is exactly what we need right now. Our current squad has plenty of experience. Also, if Bruce is agreeing to come here there must be some money knocking around for January. I’m not sure how but there’s no way he’d come here just to oversee a clearout with no investment.

    Are we trusting him yet?

    I’d be stunned if the support wasn’t there on the whole. Jos is doing a superb job so far. He’s maintained a decent winning ratio whilst blooding youngsters and coaching/improving players that some has written off. Look at Palmers performances. Look at the work rate and attitude from Matias and Joao. We’ve finished last season strongly and had our best start to this yet Jos still hasn’t worked with Lee or Hooper. We’ve had 3 wins on the bounce without our talisman in FF. The positives are there all over the place. There will always be social media meltdowns when we lose but I wouldn’t read too much into that. If Jos is given time and support we’ll be top 6 this season. And, perhaps most excitingly, we’ll get there with some of our own playing key roles.
  12. I get where you’re coming from and think, eventually, all clubs will replicate this approach as money from fans becomes less and less important. However, at the moment, both these clubs have a model built around selling their best players to stay afloat and ensure fans get these deals. I suspect if Wednesday replicated these prices, or similar, now and sold off FF and Bannan fans would soon be complaining.

    Rumours of unrest

    Can’t disagree BUT it’s hard creating in that area when so much of his possession is in front of the oppositions midfield. With willing runners, pace around him and more freedom I really think he would be dangerous in the final third.

    Carlos linked with Swansea

    Wouldn’t touch that job if I was him. They’ve got a terrible squad. Hiding to nothing.

    Rumours of unrest

    I am surprised people just write off Lees so readily. He’s made a superb improvement with us and we look infinitely stronger with him playing. Would feel more confident in developing Van Aken with Lees alongside him. Bannan is one of the players I’m exicted to see under new management. If we can pair him with Hutch (NOT JONES!) In a much more attack minded side he will be superb for us. Imagine Bannan linking up with FF and another proper winger going for the jugular at Hillsborough. Realse the shackles and watch Bannan go. Classy player in this league.
