  1. On a bit of a binge, watched Glen Little, Luke Steele, Stephen McPhee and just finished Nicky Forster which is the latest one Steele and Forster were two of the best for me, great personalities and humour. Little was also decent. Didn't like McPhee (ex Port Vale striker) as he was irritating and was trying too hard to be funny Another good podcast is On The Judy. Michail Antonio and Moses Odubajo have both been on
  2. Leicester are a clear example of how a club should be run Selling and buying players at the right time, not spending above their means, backing the manager without meddling in tactics/team selections etc. Then there's Chansiri
  3. What a stupid woman They complain there isn't equality and then when she gets linked with a job in men's football she calls it an insult. We can't win can we? She seems offended which is totally bizarre. All she needed to say was it's nice to be linked with the job but i'm happy where I am and case closed
  4. Keep it as it is, no need to change it for the time being. We're winning and dare I say it even scoring goals He's not afraid to attack which is what we've all been saying for months. Go for the win instead of parking the bus and we will get results
  5. Just listened to Doom stating the bleedin' obvious on Twitter Is it just me that thinks he looks and sounds like Dave from the Royle Family?
  6. Green was without a club sat at home not getting paid so he probably thought signing for us would get him out the house
  7. Bloody phone meant to put hope i'm wrong
  8. Not sure who in their right mind would sign for us with everything that's going on in the background. No manager, facing relegation, can't afford to pay the players we currently have. You'd have to have a screw loose to sign for us right now Hope i'm right and we're able to bring in at least a striker but not getting my hopes up
  9. Very good signing for that price. Bristol City will have a decent strike partnership up top with him and Nakhi Wells. Depressing to think we have Paterson (not a dig at him as he's doing his best but we're far away from Bristol City's level right now)
  10. If the club really wanted him he would have been given the job weeks ago and on a longer contract
  11. Agree completly mate DC's model only works with a foreign manager hence why Carlos lasted the longest and Bruce/Pulis only a matter of weeks
  12. DC has done the correct thing offering a 4 month contract and it shows he has learnt from previous mistakes of handing out long term contracts to managers and then having to pay them off What would happen if we give him a 3 year contract and we don't win another match all season? Everyone would be on here slating DC for giving him a 3 year contract In our current situation I think a 4 month contract is sensible
  13. I never said those currently managing in Argentina were world class. What I said was that here they are prepared to give young managers a chance where as there is a fear factor amongst Premier League sides and whenever they sack a manager they go for the safe option of Big Sam, Moyes, Pulis or Bruce etc. The more opportunities given to young English managers the more likely we are to produce a world class manager which as a result will help our national side. How can it be that difficult to understand? You only have to look at Steven Gerrard. There is no way an English
  14. Yes it does matter as it affects our national side
  15. Fair enough but I counted two as Terry is NOT a manager and up to now has never been a manager My point still stands though. There isn't a single world class English manager. Clearly something is wrong
  16. Going back to Gago he is 34 years old and retired from playing last month and he's gone straight into management at the highest level in Argentina. Where as a young manager in England could have relative success for 10 years and he wouldn't get offered a job in the Premier League unless he got there through promotion with his club We need a complete shake up. There is a reason why we don't have a single world class manager anywhere across the globe. Not enough opportunities are being handed out
  17. Howe took Bournemouth up from the 4th division didn't he?
  18. I've named 4 managers and you've named 1 I think my point is proven that not enough young English managers are given a fair crack in the Premier League
  19. You've named one guy who has just got the Derby job in the second division cos they're skint and an assistant manager I'm talking about young managers being given a chance in the Premier League instead of the same failed manager-go-round likes of Big Sam
  20. has just landed his first managerial position since hanging up his boots. He's taken over my local club Aldosivi which is a huge coup for them considering they are probably half the size of Burnley. It's a big risk for Aldosivi as they are in the top flight and it's Gago's first post but clubs here in Argentina are prepared to take a punt on young upcoming managers without experience There are quite a few big name's currently managing in Primera. Apart from Gago there is Hernan Crespo at Defensa y Justicia, then there is Kily Gonzalez managing Rosario Central and Maxi Rodriguez is
  21. He'd certainly be something different but I can't help but think he'd have been ideal when we had Forestieri, Fletcher, Joao etc. Now our attack is inexistant i'm not sure he'd have the desired effect I'd sill take him over a boring defensive sit back and park the bus for 90 minutes type manager
  22. Your World And My World By Albert Hammond (Dad not the son) Brilliant album, not a bad song on there
  23. True but if we don't sign players our fans complain and when we do they still complain so there is no pleasing some When we sign over the hill past it players they complain they were too old and now we have signed a young, promising 22 year old winger they complain he is injury prone But having said that I do agree that we should have a manager in place first and foremost
