  1. 11 out of 10 for Bannan, the rest were all 10's. 3rd int league at Christmas. Incredible considering how much pressure there is off the pitch at the minute. Well done Garry Monk and the lads.
  2. Vote for Rhodes. Goal of the day. 1 hour left.
  3. 4 4 4........ HOW DO YOU LIKE IT..... HOW DO YOU LIKE IT.
  4. Have a fiver on the fact that some tvvat will say 'you can't judge him on 45 minutes alone'. IF DUNT SCORE 2ND HARF - SELL IM.
  5. I want everyone to wear Garry Monk masks and adopt the catchphrase. Aye up we're the Monkee's.
  6. Someone is bound to refer to him as Gas. This is why DC took so long, less complication of the spelling meaning less people walking around with incorrect names on their backs. Hey..........someone will have Monk on eh hahahahahahahaha
  7. So vote yes then. <<<<<yours faithfully, the digital press-gang team>>>>>>
  8. "I certainly don't know enough to say one way or another whether I think they'd be the right fit for us." - so you have an idea of what might be the right fit for us or is it just a throwaway comment? I agree btw - unless any of us have followed lower league football enough to 'know' the pair, then it is a bit of a punt. For me, I look at what they have achieved versus an experienced managerial team i.e Rowett or Pulis, and believe that the Cowley's might just be looking past another payday on the managerial carousel for the next 6-12 months til it goes belly up.
  9. But how can you quantify what is? If you give anyone the autonomy to make the role their own, put their stamp on things, then surely being armed with those tools for the job gives you every chance of success.
  10. We need a boost and a buzz about the place in the same way the Bruce appointment brought. The Cowley's are just that. We'd create a bit of a fanfair, whilst being able to temper expectations a little by understanding they are coming in to build a solid foundation for us to move forward. We've tried the money route, it hasn't worked, we now need a longer term plan. 2 upcoming, ambitious individuals that would 'genuinely' see SWFC as a huge opportunity and give it their all. They'd 100% have my backing.
  11. I agree, we need a full coaching staff on board working with the players day in day out, does Bullen have that? 3 weeks ago he was assisting Steve Bruce and his 2 sidekicks in getting the squad ready for the start of the season, and here is now, thrust into what for him is a pretty unwanted limelight and being asked to do a job he's not had either the experience or the credentials to do. So no, I don't blame him one bit for not having any of the support afforded to his predecessor, and in some respects he's done pretty well to get a few results on the board during his 6 games in charge. It's very easy to cite the manager's set up of the team as the reason we lost, fans have been critical of LB not having a plan B, well today he did and it didn't come off. He may have got elements of it wrong, but questions need to be asked of senior pro's at the club that are way off their best form at the minute as well. I'm as frustrated as you that the manager situation isn't yet resolved, if it's LB, then he needs backing with more assistance because at the moment we're in a position where we'll attract the wrong type of manager to the club and in a stressed situation, it'll lead to a bad appointment. The type of manager that works well in the modern game is someone who's able to have a system and recruit the players to play that system, not the other way round. That's why we'll continue to struggle regardless of who comes in and takes charge. It's also part of the reason why (given our finances) I believe we aren't as attractive a club to any 'would be's'.
  12. Lee's dropping out before kick off was not a good start, game was just a complete mess for us. Iorfa looked like a full back playing as a make shift centre half, I think with a few games under his belt there that he'd be pretty good though. Borner impressed me with how he tried to come for a few balls when QPR were playing a high line in an attempt to box us in, his distribution is pretty good as well. Given it to Fletcher, mainly for the penalty, but feel like we really let ourselves down today despite the scoreline being close. We never looked like getting back in the game when they went 2-1 up, that troubles me. We don't seem to have an indentified style of play, I wouldn't put the blame at LB's door, he's got little support trying to do the job of managing 30+ players with not even a murmuring that we are close to appointing someone. I think the uncertainty is getting to everyone, most of all the players, some of which are not playing at full tilt. With only half a dozen games played, that's quite worrying. I don't think QPR were up too much, Hugill aside they are about as average a side as you'll see, we certainly made them look like world beaters today.
