  1. When running any business you surround yourself with the best staff you can from top to bottom especially in areas where you might not be as strong in if chansiri can not identify financial or performance wise what’s going wrong he needs to recruit those who can if he can’t listen to them or see this it’s his fault the book will always stop at him and it’s not like he’s been at this 6 months now he’s not experienced enough or strong enough to be the pig headed control freek that he is hire a chief executive or a director of football or even both and alongside them you set the vision the budget and the time frame then trust them to execute you put targets in place with reviews to ensure they are on track to achieve and you support them the best way you can as far as I can see we start every season with the words we want promotion and no clue or plan in how to achieve it Bruce was the only one I believed in chansiri a reign ( and Carlos first season ) had a chance of delivering it because he was adding structure and identifying holes in the squad ( pace) that needed to be addressed he had a vision and a plan chansiri has a wallet and dream
  2. Nice to see Lee getting game time played a small part in all three goals too he really is busy and can pop up everywhere that lad
  3. Monks problem is he’s got to get to the summer to have a massive clear out Pretty much all out of contract players will be gone and that leaves a fresh new lot coming in with hopefully the personality’s and attitudes monk wants rest is he open to loans or transfers and this is the problem of monk wants that overhaul he needs to be in a job and he needs to find away of winning soon otherwise he won’t be the man to see it through
  4. They did last year when Jos was sacked and if they don’t improve results the manager gets the sack if he doesn’t play them and results don’t improve the manager gets the sack the manager does himself no favours by losing games but getting beat in them convincingly by the divisions worst sides when he is choosing to freeze players out You can do it when results are going well and performances are ok but when questions start to be asked answers need to be given
  5. Hutch will play again we are not good enough without him
  6. If I remember monk banged on about making the players understand their roles and not over complicating them so all know there roles and what do to he play us to suit the players he as every squad is different and you play to you players strengths fast forward I think monk needs a rethink in his methods or approach to what he thinks are the players strengths because they’ve defo played better than this
  7. It’s pretty simple to me if monk wants to save his job and get to the end of the season where he has a lot of movement to rebuild with the out of contract players he has to turn results around he has westwood and hutchinson sat at home whilst we are getting out played by all the division if this is how he wants to discipline and manage the squad then he has to pay the price if he’s looking for work next year otherwise use what you have and manage then accordingly until you have enough to manage without them if I was monk I’d make a defensive midfielder or two a big target in the summer and play Sam for the rest of the season I don’t want to come across harsh on Dawson he doesn’t look like he’s lacking in confidence but his form as dropped as have the teams this needs addressing either give wildsmith a run or westwood needs to be recalled we can not keep having these performances and results whilst we’ve got two senior pros sat at home it’s the managers choice to exclude them and like jos it cost him his job if they are a problem then you look at the summer window to fix it but the problem isn’t the summer it’s here and now and you have to pick your best 11 or pay the price
  8. There’s billionaires come from nowhere but. I’d imagine there’s a lot more attractive propositions than us to buy in the league or lower and invest to get up the size of the fan base and stadium means nothing these days plus our stadium as history only offers nothing as business here’s A question though If some one did buy would they still have no money to spend due to us being over FFP limits and looking likely to be for the next few years or close to them guess is they couldn’t spend until the business is brought under those limits so they would be buying a business they couldn’t invest in for a few years Barnsley Luton and Rotherham are better propositions for investors rather than us any would be investor would want us to tidy our annual accounts up and that’s going to take another two three years I think chansiri knows this too
  9. Megson is an older version of monk all heart passion and fight these lot need cuddling or sacking off
  10. I think the problem we have is getting managers and coaches to match the players personalities this team was assembled mainly with softer nice guy Carlos and maybe they just don’t like being over pushed maybe we have a team of pre Madonna’s that switch off to certain management style and the best way to get the best out of them is to coach them to what makes them play its a bit like school teaching different kids need different methods and I’m guessing we have too many needing a different method to what monk coaches until he gets the right players with the right mentality and attitude to be receptive to his methods I think they’ve just switched off I’d also imagine there’s a big click between the players with how long they’ve been together it needs breaking up or getting a manager in that can work with them I think monk really cares and has more fight in him than the players I just don’t think they respond to him
  11. That’s the form table over last 10 games and we’ve played some right dross in those games we are sliding down the table it’s not 1-5 games it’s over half of monks games in charge over reacting no it’s there in front of us
  12. They was our best years but he undertrained the players and it started to show towards the end Carlos always gets off to a flyer then his second seasons are bad he actually got away with it second season but cone year three that first season was a distant memory that said nobody has achieved it again since and he was likeable Maybe if we had a DOF to help with the structure
  13. There’s a lot against the idea but isn’t the best two managers of getting promoted by record warnock and Bruce both managed the pigs and there was uproar on Bruce’s appointment because of this ( granted his affiliation wasn’t as strong to them as warnocks ) point is and we will probably never know Bruce was heading towards being an extremely good manager for us in how he was shaping our squad and backroom what we might need is a two- three year plan to rebuild this team stop this rot this season put in a good foundation of fight and spirit and culture next season and go for promotion the next season I’d say old dinosaur warnock could give his is final 2.5 years I’d guarantee we wouldn’t be getting hammered by Blackburn and gettting our played by Barnsley Wigan and Luton if he was here he’s the most qualified for the job and passion oozes out of him if warnock had the fight I’d get him if he hasn’t dont go for it I certainly wouldn’t have his age or past go against him it’s narrow minded. I’m fed up of being a mid table / league one yo yo team
  14. Is it me or was forestieri the only player coming out of this game with any credit
  15. I’ve said it before I’ll say it again if we lose this game we are bottom of the form table over 10 games that’s a sizeable chunk of the season and over half of monks games we are nose diving to relegation I’m not being trigger happy here but we are playing out of form teams that are the worst teams in the league and getting out played and out fought by this is a results based business Luton could be 5-0at half time....Luton
