  1. This seems to be a consistent with managers going back all the way to CC I think it stems from the top top teams having players who can play in multiple positions and it filters down to lower leagues We, alas, are not a top team but we DO have the personell to play round pegs in round holes and get results Does me nut in
  2. Carlos Carvalhal In all seriousness I happen to quite like Darren Moore and don't think we are doing as appallingly as some people are making out. Footballs not been great at times, sure, but if people thought we were going to storm the league it's their expectations that perhaps were a little misguided rather than all this "nice guy vs successful" nonsense And what is even success? Trophies? Well how many managers the last 15 years have actually won trophies in this country? Maybe 10 max? Or is promotion the barometer of success? By definition some people would prefer Avram Grant or Di Matteo as manager. I'm behind Moore anyways nice guy or not
  3. I'm not sure, there's something dislikeable about him In fact do any fans of any of the clubs he has managed hold him in any regard?
  4. Plymouth, who are top currently, finished last season 8 points above the relegation places and spent the early part (from recollection) in those places My point being that we are playing in a new environment with new teams to play and players are bound to need time to get to speed Last season I wanted Monk to be given more time (and I still believe we would have stayed up despite the turgid football) and I'm of the same mindset with Moore
  5. In the last version of the game, I got promoted with Wednesday, Callum Paterson was top goalscorer in the championship in promotion season, andre green and Kareem harris are a mainstay in the premier league and worth 15 million plus and cameron dawson just got called up to the england squad. Bannan also got in a strop cos I found some players to replace him and I flogged him to Dundee for 0 cos he annoyed me
  6. I, like many, can't stand Derby, Mel Morris or Rooney but football should be about bragging rights on the pitch not about how many points they might be deducted. Every few months we seem to have another club threatened with admin, points deductions or worse which simply did not happen 20 years ago with the frequency they happen now I hope Derby and their fans manage to find their way out of this
  7. I saw this pop up on my facebook feed thought it would be a good thing to share with the owlstalk extended family Can't imagine what the family is going through at this moment. https://www.swfc.co.uk/news/2021/september/3000-raised-so-far-for-jude-s-carers/
  8. I honestly can't remember where there hasn't been a large over reaction to 1 of our first handful of games It happens every single season for as long as I can remember regardless of where we finished or who is in charge Yesterday, especially that 1st half, we were as bad as any football team I've ever seen but we will play badly. We will play well. We will win games on the trot and lose games on the trot but 6 games is no indication of where we will finish
  9. Last game I managed was at yeovil with my spurs supporting mate who unfortunately can't make it today. That's how long it's been! Think we won 2-1 and were invited to the bristol city match by a couple of Owls
  10. Apparently so. That's the rumours anyway it could be entirely false but there are a fair amount of Devon owls (me inclusive) who couldn't get away tickets and for obvious reasons don't have season tickets so had no alternatives and it's very rare there's any matches down these parts
  11. You checked online mate? As far as I can see there are loads left but I don't know what processes they've implemented
  12. If the rumours if 3k plus being in the home end are accurate it could get a bit bothersome.
  13. Seems there will be plenty of owls fans about and I'm not sure Plymouth are too known for their kicking off I'm wondering if there will be certain blocks more full of owls than pilgrims
