  1. Why would people want a dinosaur like Allardyce. Don’t forget he was sacked from his last job after being found offering to tell how to get round his employers rules. People have overwhelmingly said in here what we want, if not Bullen, is someone young hungry and desperate to prove themselves. Then when someone mentions Allardyce everyone goes weak at the knees.
  2. Not sure the posters on here who would take anyone have, fortunately, been personally involved in the recruitment process. So difficult to see the connection to being in the doldrums
  3. It’s all assumptions but I could imagine DC agreeing to let Bruce go if the compensation is agreed and shaking Bruce’s hand in that basis. In which case Bruce would not be lying when he said at Lincoln it is down to the clubs to agree. It then went horribly wrong when Bruce resigned before an agreement was made
  4. Interesting to see Pulis’ stats on there. Must be a no
  5. It’s odd how people forget what Carvalhal served up after the first season and also how good Moyes has been at Preston and Everton. If we could be where Everton have been the last 20 years I don’t think we would be too unhappy
  6. Any respect left for Bruce disappears if this is right. Only 6 months ago he signs a contract including a clause re him moving on, which he would always include in a players contract. DC should now complain to the relevant authorities about an illegal approach while appointing his Bruce’s successor as soon as possible
  7. Ive just re read the article Alex Bruce write about his dad. Interestingly he says in there if you treat people the right way, which hue says his dad does 9 times out of 10 you will get more in return. All sounds little hollow given the considerDC gave him at the start of his contract. Now comes across as a very shallow individual. I don’t accept the argument about his boyhood club as he has turned them down before.
  8. I understand all that’s being said about his boyhood club. But he was given enormous respect by DC when he was prepared to wait for him and supported him in bringing in his own back room staff. Once he asked to speak to Newcastle that respect was thrown back at DC and he must be feeling enormously let down. Its onwards and upwards now. Hughton would be a great appointment and give the fans a belief there is still to be a reason to be optimistic for the coming season
  9. Time for some journo out there to ask the question. Probably in post match interview
  10. Don’t worry be happy my mantra and phone ring tone. Applies to many things in life including SWFC
  11. I think it’s a great read and makes me even more confident we have in Steve Bruce a manager we’ll be proud of. I just hope the fans give him time as I am sure DC will
  12. Last I heard he was over 30 and injured. Should be a perfect fit
  13. Amazing to think it was so long ago. I was 14 that June and my parents allowed me to go with my mates with High Green supporters club. Went to Semi Final at Villa Park as well. Can’t imagine allowing kids that age to go to London these days. Great team that needed a little investment to take us on but ........ Typical Wednesday I suppose.
  14. Terrific young player. Seemed to be one step ahead of his colleagues. I remember the Eric Taylor comment in signing him, hence the name on here
  15. Put a tenner on at 4/1 and considered it an investment. Still do, will win relatively comfortably on Sunday
  16. We might like to offer Westwood a contract but, as ever, there are 2 sides involved. Westwood is at the end if his contract and is therefore free to negotiate with whoever he chooses. He is also coming towards the end if his career. Therefore a club offering a sizeable signing on fee together with reasonable salary would be in front if us. To our advantage throughout all this, us the fact that Steve Bruce knows the value if Championship players and the days if us being ripped off should be over
  17. Don’t know how many games Dave Clement played, but as he isn’t included it would have to be Worthington
  18. I’d go further and as posted a number of times now. Why not have a half season ticket based on number of games not time.
  19. Commercially I am sure there are many things that could be done. I have previously mentioned on here that with the business model seeming to built around season tickets why not have a half season ticket based on match attendance not time. There are many reasons why people can’t attend games, particularly with Sky changing dates etc. I believe this would attract more supporters to commit to the club and all the ancillary spend that goes with it
  20. I wouldn’t write Rhodes off yet. Bruce recently was very positive about him. Given that, and the unlikely ability we will be able to move him on he is likely to figure in the coming season. Of the forwards more likely to go I would think Hooper, Winall, Nuhui and João are most likely
  21. Dawson Iorfa Lees Hector Palmer Matias Bannan Pelupessy Forestieri Flercher Hooper 3-1
  22. As as he is at the end of his contract he will be free to negotiate a larger signing on fee. So I guess salary is less if an issue
  23. Apologies Alan Hodgkinson was not the previous record holder, but he was Springett’s understudy in the 1962 World Cup
  24. I think one of the spin offs of having SB, apart from his coaching qualities will be his knowledge of the English game. He will have a clear understanding of the value of players unlike previous advisors who may even have benefited from paying over the odds
  25. Could be back to Portugal. SB has a house alongside Vila Sol golf course
