  1. The two who don't do it for me are Nuihu and Winnall. Unfortunately they are the players we'd get the least amount for.
  2. Its just not officially been announced, possibly overlooked with all the other shenanigans. He's a 12 month contract. I dare say if he sets off like a house on fire it will quickly be extended.
  3. Any appointments a gamble, some less than others. As much as I like Bully I think we need to keep him for situations like we find ourselves in now and he's also a good coach. As for manager lets not be hasty unless Hughton changes his mind and says yes. Out of the rest that are available Bronkhorst ticks a lot of boxes and you can't compare him to Jos. Look at the success he's had with Feyenord.
  4. He laid his bed. Rather have a monkey in charge than SB.
  5. I must add they also have the hottest chillis in the world, and guess what theyr'e also green.
  6. Think Mexico. High pressing, passionate, always attacking and exciting to watch.
  7. Its gonna be a gamble whoever we set on. Van Bronckhorst has experience he's a relatively young guy but is switched onto the modern game unlike a lot of the old school tripe that are currently on offer. Massive gamble but its a yes from me.
  8. Another example of our chairman having no grasp of valuations. Joao has shown no consistency wherever he's been and his workrate and application is questionable. How can be valued at £8m? I would think £4m tops. We need to offload some of our forwards and if he doesn't want to play for us let him go, £3m to £4m DC.
  9. We are not far off being a very good side. The foundations have been set for us to be attacking next season. This rules out managers such as Karanka, Pulis, Carlos and most of the old school british managers on offer. I think we need someone up and coming who buys into the high intensity, attack at all costs mentality. I know we all hate him but there has to be another Wilder out there who is not a pig.
  10. We appoint Zola, the fans are in uproar and protest. The team storm the league and gain promotion 10 points clear of our nearest rival. We never do whats expected.
  11. He's a better bet than most of the names been mentioned and he has experience and previous in this division.
  12. None from that list now Hughton has ruled himself out. If it were me I'd go for Ollie, the guy loves wednesday and it would be a fun trip with attacking football.
  13. I think Bruce insinuated as much when he spoke a few days ago about having too many forwards. The chairman sets too high a valuation on players.
  14. I think there is more to this than whats being said. SB more or less implied he has too many forwards and needs to sell so he can bring other targets in. The stumbling block would be DC who has unreliastic valuations on players such as Rhodes.
