  1. This is a very good interview and shows the aspects of management you perhaps overlook. It also echos the job Moore has done in terms of changing the personnel and the attitude around the club. Wilder also goes on to say he's good mates with Moore and he'll do a good job. Hopefully the performances will come but when people talk about what Moore has actually done it always disappoints me as he's completely rebuilt aspects of the club which were broken and rotten to the core. I still feel like we need to give him time; whether that results in success or not.
  2. There's a thin line between success and failure. I watched the game back on the extended highlights today and Berahino missed an absolute sitter. His goal was a more difficult header. Couple that with Bannan's penalty miss and we are 3-0 after 30 minutes. The same can be said about the Morecambe game. We missed a boat load of chances and were made pay for it. Teams don't tend to play at that intensity for 90 minutes but if you miss a number of chances and the opposition then equalise then uncertainly naturally creeps in. My main concern (ironically given the slow start to the transfer window) is that we've signed too many. No Byers, Paterson and Brown yesterday. Brown started the season very well and is incredibly hard working. Unless he's got an injury then why is he not in and around the squad? My concern is that we have too many wide players so we aren't getting the consistency in those positions. Have we actually had a settled period of playing two of the same out wide? I doubt it. Overall it's not great but not terrible. The games we've lost bar Plymouth we should have comfortably been out of sight.
  3. I remember everyone in pre season absolutely rimming Ipswich and their signings. They haven't won a game yet. Let's give it a little time yet before we start panicking. The early goal and mistake by BPF really set the tone for the game today.
  4. He said before the game at the weekend he wanted to sign a new contract and stay at the club. I wouldn't be against him going but this is bullsh*t for me.
  5. I think Moore said in pre season they share a house together so perhaps just banter?
  6. Goalkeeper and the back 4 are completely settled and I imagine won't change unless there's an injury/rested for cup games. The rest of the team can be rotated dependant upon whether we are at home, away, physicality of opposition and so forth. It's quite an exciting dynamic to have so many options. We still haven't even seen Sow, Corbeanu or Windass this season.
  7. I actually think Pulis was the one of the worst appointments we could ever make (I say this in hindsight). He constructed this bizarre mentality where he was above criticism and it was just down to personnel. His interviews were all about how lovely the fans were, how much money the owner had spent and how the team needed completely reshaping. Some of his decisions were utterly bizarre (including playing our best centre half in midfield). I do believe if we'd have appointments Moore sooner and given him the January window we'd have stayed up. In terms of Luhukay I think he had the right ideas (in terms of a younger, fitter squad) yet he should have phased the senior players out vs wholesale changes for individuals who were just not up to the challenge (Goalkeepers for example). He's also struggled since. All in all a cluster f*ck of bad managers since Carlos (bar Bruce). Pulis was the worst for me as he took absolutely no responsibility and took the job on a whim without any due diligence.
  8. He seems to ABSOLUTELY love it.
  9. We also don't know how much Green is getting paid. Could be a decent earner.
  10. Looks like Moore gave him pre season and a couple of games to see if he had what we needed and decided against it. We have plenty of options in that department so I believe this is best for all parties. Shame it didn't work out but Moore seems to demand a certain type of player and Green doesn't seem to have fit those requirements All the best to him.
  11. I thought it was an odd choice for Osaze Urhoghide. He'd had plenty of game time and was beginning to become a good player. I expected him to move somewhere with more guaranteed league football. He'd perhaps not even got that with us but would have certainly been 3rd choice centre half. I imagine he's on good money at Celtic mind.
