  1. This one is gathering momentum. https://www.footballinsider247.com/bruce-in-hunt-for-milosevic/

    George Boyd.

    Sorry, cannot agree with this. He started under Carlos and then picked up a nasty shoulder injury and was pretty much out until Jos came in as manager. From then he was constantly played out of position. He's an offensive midfielder known for his engine and goal scoring abilities yet we played him left wing back? Comments on Boyd actually cemented my own opinions on Jos actually. I remember reading/listening to an interview a few months back and when asked why Boyd wasn't considered Jos said we had two players currently for his position in Fox & Penney. I think that tells you everything you need to know about how Jos approached the job and his attitude towards some senior players. Absolutely no past analysis of where Boyd has played and how he's impacted things at former clubs. I'm not suggesting for a minute Boyd is going to go on and play like this week in week out however it must be incredibly difficult as a seasoned pro to sit back and watch what happened under Jos. Nobody can deny Boyd didn't get his head down last season in our purple patch and contribute to the team (Admittedly not at his best) but he was still playing in a position which doesn't match his skills set. Let's hope he can continue to kick on.
  3. It's a completely and utterly ridiculous statement to make. If I was good at my job for a few weeks and then poo for two months do you think they would remember the stellar two weeks when I did perform? The reason we all want a new manager is purely because it's 1 win in 10 playing awful football and shipping the most goals in the league. People who he believed shouldn't be on the bench (Dave Jones anyone) suddenly appeared on the bench this weekend despite overlooking him and having Conor Kirby, Isaac Rice etc on the bench earlier in the season. Can Jones and co now suddenly play 25 games a season?. This goes against his apparent philosophy of blooding the young players as this wasn't the case this past weekend. He's confused, we are confused and nobody sees a clear, defined progressive plan of how we get out of this. Out of the three players he's signed, he's brought in two seem to be the scapegoats and the other is undroppable irrespective of how he performs. I could go on and on but I'm not sure it's worth the effort. I'd love for him to turn it around as he seems like a genuinely nice bloke but his management style and tactics don't seem to be working.

    Ou est le presser?

    Jos seems totally out of the loop with what's going on. I imagine the Chairman is getting in place someone to take over and Jos knows that. Fair play to Giddings who is usually terrible with some cracking questions and put the pressure on significantly.

    Westwood to Weeds

    Perhaps reading a little into this but he seems to have a new enthusiasm for the club?

    Alan Nixon

    I think he was purely speculating and didn't really have a clue. 3h Shop window perhaps Jack @jack231997 @reluctantnicko heard anything else about Wednesday? Kieran Westwood playing in u23s game, first game he’s been involved in all season? Jos changed his mind or been advised to? Or has he gone?

    Westwood starts u23

    Panic over. Westwood didn't play the second half so is by default still the best Goalkeeper at the club.

    Westwood starts u23

    I imagine this is merely shop window stuff for Westwood & Boyd.

    Line up

    I would understand that rationale but there's no pace in the side. Reach is a strong runner with the ball but apart from that, there's absolutely zero pace.
  10. I understand where you are coming from but his logic doesn't always hold true. Why is Westwood not playing in the Under 23's games to improve fitness? The same can be said for Hutch, Boyd, Jones etc. These players have been in and around the first team historically and should be at least involved to some capacity. It seems he has rules for some but not others. Kieran Lee in the past year has had the worst injury record yet he was allowed to come back into an Under 23's game. Marco Matias has played a handful of games since been at the football club. He's played far less games than Boyd & Jones throughout his career yet he seems to get a pass. Same can be said for Winnall recently. He's got injured again so do we now cast him onto the scrap heap? His logic and rationale would make sense if it was applied to the entire playing squad. I just cannot get my head around why you wouldn't have players who are now fit in and around the first team. I completely agree that the likes of Westwood, Boyd and Jones aren't the future of this football club. I'm on board with this and actually align with this belief. The bit I'm struggling with is the now. They would certainly improve us right now; even if it means a place on the bench. It's hard not to point to a fallout with certain players or disagreements as his philosophy hasn't been implemented across the entire playing squad.

    Really? Nothing to do with the chance to become an assistant manager at a club he had played for in his career with one of his best pals as the manager?
  12. To be fair he was pretty quick to react having missed the header and get up and put the ball in the net.

    The type of signing we should have been looking at last season. Young, has pace and is very highly rated. If it works out...great. If it doesn't he'll go back.
