  1. One day he’ll manage the pigs. He was destined to.
  2. Affection, sure. Connections? Who, exactly? Just not qualified, for me. Maybe, just maybe, he could be a decent assistant for LB.
  3. What a player he is. I hope we give him enough time to recover, and rests him when needed. Most underrated player in the football league. Also, the club should be searching high and low for his long term successor.
  4. Umbongo, Umbongo, Then we signed Luongo, Don''t know why, Should have brought in Franck Songo'o
  5. Looks like Chris Hughton needs a doctor, though.
  6. If he comes here and does well, obviously I’d be delighted with that. But I’d be sceptical appointing him on that basis. If he doesn’t really want the job, but joina because it’s a good payday, hmmm.
  7. I don’t want Hughton if he’ll only come here on very high wages and after weeks persuading him. My biggest concern is if DC talks to Chris Coleman, who might very well charm himself into the job.
  8. Am I the only one who doesn’t want Chris Hughton? Last thing we need is a manager who needs weeks to be persuaded to come here, and then only for big money. No thanks!
  9. Yes, absolutely no point to convince him if he’s not sold on the idea. Rather have Rowett, who seems to want it badly.
  10. Don’ think Bullen will take a chance with youngsters like Penney at this time if he’s after the manager job.
  11. It’s not like Steve Bruce is an irreplaceable football genius. The problem is the timing he jumped ship. A despicable maneuver. And he was safe hands. I think we’d be a good fit for Gary Rowett, but he’d be hired by now if we were after him.
  12. Cowley is an interesting choice. If we are that keen we could maybe tempt him here if the deal is right for everyone involved. Seems like he was speaking with WBA. Better timing in May/June obviously.
  13. What is so progressive about the Cowley brothers? Great resultat, sure. Progressive? I have no idea. Would like to know why they are considered so much more interesting than Rowett, who’s far more experienced in high level football, and proven at our level.
  14. With Chansiri not having appointed anyone yet, I’m hopeful he is actually aiming a bit higher. That list doesn’t look great. A good appointment could be the difference between mid table or worse and a promotion push.
  15. I hope we get as much as possible out of Newcastle. But I just can’t see that it will work if Bruce stays. 99 percent of the time, if a manager or player wants to go he goes. Can only think of the Marco Silva example recently, and that didn’t turn out very well.
  16. I just can’t see how it is going to work for Bruce at SWFC if this falls through and Newcastle appoint somebody else. I wouldn’t want an unmotivated Bruce around.
  17. That is extremely impressive, and would be an interesting choice of manager. There’s one big worry that neither has coached, managed or played at a higher level than League. 500k release clause. Came close to being appointed at WBA. Sounds like the name of a country band.
  18. What’s so special about the Cowley brothers? They’re being linked to every Championship club looking for a manager. Done well in League One, obviously, but so did Chris Turner and Colin West.
  19. As in Steve Bruce doesn’t get the Newcastle job. Wasn’t that hard to read between the lines, I reckon?
  20. Well, he’s going to bring a lot of those foundations with him, taking most of the coaching and scouting staff. I bet Bullen isn’t impressed. Is that dutch coach Jos brought with him still here?
  21. If it’s true that he’s been engineering this move while doing pre season, signing and releasing players, and the move falls through we should sack Steve Bruce for gross misconduct.
  22. Still time to sign Lee Cattermole before he leaves.
  23. We’re you not the one starting the name calling here? Probably got that a little wrong. Well, anyways, if you think we’re mobbing in the right direction that’s fine with me. I don’t. As for sponsors, you might want to add some revenue. The inability to bring in partner’s are very worrying. Bless him for all the money he’s put in, but he needs to surround himself with the right people to get this club moving forward again. Like he’s actually HAS done with the academy.
  24. So you think Chansiri has put in a place a sound football and business strategy, then, taking the club forward? For the amount of money he’s spent, the returns are poor. Exemplified for instance but the almost complete inhability to bring proper sponsors to the club. It’s quite embarrassing watching those D Taxi and Chansiri signs to be honest. I don’t care about shirts, but a lot of people do. And the way we’ve been conducting our business the last few years have been laughable. It’s lost revenue. Add to that the increased ticket prices, failed 1867 and other schemes, the fall out with the Hirsts, etc. He may well be passionate. I never said I wanted a business man for owner. But I want someone who appoints the right advisors, listene to them and let them do their job uninterupted. Having said that, surely he’s done a lot of good for the club, but he has to get his s*** together or it’ll all go pear shaped. Or worse, anniversary cake ball shaped. As for the United shirt you’re still waiting for: Chin up, I bet you’ll get your piece soon.
