  1. Your right, but if the money's right he'll coach us
  2. I concluded this when Bullen was in charge before Monk. The days of a Senior Manager with experience coming into SWFC with his own blue print are long gone. (And who's to say that's the only way of achieving success?) Better that we have a coaching team that knows the strengths of the players in the first team and academy and we build something from there.
  3. I agree, unless he's coming back in a coaching role I can only see him playing around a dozen games maximum until the end of the season.
  4. You're right, but you've rattled my cage on this one. There were actually two world cup winners play for Arsenal that night. I remember watching Jurgen Klinsmann at Hillsborough play for Spurs. (Might have even been his debut) Back in those days that was something exceptional. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olivier_Giroud https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Per_Mertesacker#International_career Klinsmann was a cut above Giroud btw. And they had Mark Chamberlain's son playing in midfield, and he didn't turn out to be a bad player
  5. Shhh. Don't mention that... Still kids we could not afford, even back then.
  6. Regrets, I've had a few, but then again, too many to mention... Looking back you have to think Dave Richards already had an eye on his new Premier League job. I'll also add. Andy Booth, Jordan Rhodes, Elias Kachunga. I hope we never sign another striker from Huddersfield Town ever again.
  7. Personally I think our style of football even went backwards during season one of CC Just look at the opening games with Lee, McGoogan and Nuhui tearing up the opposition with "Aggressive Attacking Football" The result against Arsenal was immense. Taking the game to a top four Premier / Champions League side. By the end of the season we have lost all dynamism to our play, and were not even prepared to take the game to Hull City, in a half empty Wembley Stadium. That was poor. The quality of striking had improved massively on previous seasons. And that was d
  8. Player Coach even. That kills two birds with one stone. While we are at it.... I have the perfect replacement for Adthe Nuhiu... Adthe Nuhiu
  9. "Current SWFC Coach" WhatsApp Group Tone: Hi Dejphon, have you had chance to read my Transfer Shortlist email? DC: My advisors recommend we sign Andre Green Tone: I don't rate him, and we could really do with bringing in a Target man, as per my shortlist... DC: I don't like you prehistoric brand of football, your fired!!! "Tone" has been removed from "Current SWFC Coach" WhatsApp Group
  10. Rhodes, wingers and Megson = Total Football This is Aggressive Attacking Football DC
  11. Lets be fair, if DC preferred the cheap (Cost effective and sensible) option, we would not have been in the mess we've been in for the last three years. Before Monk came in I argued Bullen should have been kept in the role full time, as it was clear even then all DC, the advisors and the money men want is a coach. I would be happy if DC says Thompson has it for the rest of the season, then we move forward knowing he's going to continue to integrate the u23s into the first team.
  12. Personally I think Liam Shaw could be a big player for us in the future. Thompson declared he had played up front for the academy after he got his first goal for Wednesday. Ignoring our midfield problems, I would like to see Shaw start up front for the first team and see if he can reproduce again. Shaw seems to have struck up a partnership with Paterson in the goal scoring celebrations, maybe the pair would also be the answer for goal chance creation? In the absence of £12m, he should be given a chance to play for Wednesday up front.
  13. Maybe... Ignoring the initial despair, hidden with in this post about the return of Jack Marriot, there is positivity...
  14. "Derby had the option to recall him"... It says it all doesn't it?!?!
  15. Worst case scenario when the accounts are published... I fell asleep listening to that Wigan fans interview with Paul Cook the other night and woke up listening to Gerald Krasner... For those interested in "fear" muck, and what Administration looks, feels and sounds like, then Mr Krasner will explain what it means for Wigan. Maybe this is the real reason Paul Cook wasn't interested in coming to SWFC Ltd (Or maybe there's nothing to see here and it will all right in the end)
