  1. He'd sign Pelupessy. Tough as it might be to part with them both. Be churlish to stand in their way.

    Hillsborough on Saturday

    Tis the season for sprouts. Bound to be a toxic atmosphere.

    I commited the worst faux pas. Un baiser is a kiss. Confusingly, Baiser, the verb, means to fornicate. The first time I asked a French girl to kiss me, I used the verb. It wasn't too well received. For those who want to avoid this cultural fornicate up, Embrace moi is the correct phrase.

    Definitely not playing for Jos

    One thing that I've noticed, that tells me something about the man, is that Jos still makes basic language errors, confusing German and English like will/want to and bekommen/become that lead to misinterpretation and could easily be corrected. Someone must have pointed this out to him and he certainly has access to tuition, so I can only conclude that he considers correct communication as not important or is too stubborn or arrogant to make any changes. If this is how he conducts his personal life, then I can understand why he would grate on others professionally. Nobody likes a manager that is inflexible, dismissive and unapproachable. Especially when the results are not supporting that approach. Just my thoughts. Might be seeing too much in it. I had patience for the guy, but unfortunately, it's looking like his appointment has clearly not worked out for either him or us.

    No news

    But we need to get our hopes up so they can be trampled all over. Wednesday.....when it stops being fun, make stuff up.

    Biggs - Bruce - Not a cure all

    Its been a salvage job for some time and Jos was clearly given the task of holding fort while deflecting the blame for naiivety from higher up. Maybe it's an impossible job for anyone without the funds to bring in fresh blood, but DC needs bums on seats and its likely he will be forced to act. It may result in an immediate upturn in results, but its very rare to see longer term progress without recruitment and that will require some shrewd dealings on a tight budget. I hate to say it, but we need a Warnock type who is given a free reign.

    Biggs - Bruce - Not a cure all

    One thing is sure, a potential target, whether lined up for a fee, free or on loan would certainly be more tempted by having Bruce as a manager than Luhukay. The hungry players think in terms of career prospects, with an eye on future earnings. Bruce has a track record that will lure them in.

    I've got a source in club (No joke)

    The club tells us nothing. I have it on good authority that Jos went on Monday and was immediately replaced by a lookalike android. They think we are fools. We'll know the truth when he starts to talk funny and doesn't move very much.........oh wait.

    Message for Cammy

    Message to the shadow Llama: come back, we've hardly won a game since you disappeared.

    Question time...

    Thats what I was thinking. It's a win/win.

    Question time...

    Roy Keane with Sunderland 2006. 23rd place to division champions. He is also available. Not sure he would last a week with DC though.
  14. I used to work for a spoilt Arab bloke who was like this. He would ask for advice, then ignore it and accept no responsibility when things went wrong, hire underpaid puppets to do his financial dirty work and fire people who were not prepared to tow the line. Spend a fortune on pointless trimmings, but ignore vital supplies and blatantly ignore basic safety procedures. I see so many similarities with him and DC and fear that he will never have the foresight to hire the right people to do the job and leave them to do it without interference. I could have saved that guy millions, literally, but my hands were tied and in the end I gave up trying to help him and just did the minimum until another opportunity came along. I wonder if Jos is doing the same. I hope not.
