How can we counter attack teams with pace, we don't have any

 

There's the January transfer window for a new manager to sort out what he needs

 

If people are suggesting we shouldn't be hiring a top manager who is available just because we don't have the right players now, I think they will be regret their opinion especially come January when that top manager is signing the right players for his new club

Every club Big Sam manages seems to be cursed. He does enough to keep them up but he never leaves a happy dressing room or solid foundations for the next manager to build upon.

 

At Bolton he relied on big money wages for 30-somethings to keep them up, the debt was unsustainable and spiralled out of control. They're in a right state now.

Newcastle got sucked into their first relegation in ages after his short stint. Shortly before he took over they were a Champions League team.

Blackburn have been a disaster ever since he left.

West Ham had one good season under Bilic but now are struggling.

Sunderland collapsed.

Palace seem a dead cert for relegation already.

 

Some strange logic there pal

 

I blame Stuart Grey for our recent form

He probably would be for any club that is the underdog. I would expect him to pop up elsewhere and do well as he did here initially. 

 

But there is a lot of baggage associated with his tenure now and the mood around the place reflects that. When it gets to this point it’s hard to turn it around.

Just happy with the idea that the conversation is taking place somewhere and that DC isn’t standing by his man forever.

I wouldn't go that far - the rag itself isn't the most reliable so I'd be wary.

 

As with all these things, I dont believe it until the manager/player is sitting in the stands with a scarf round his neck.

Agree, but it is telling that the media has been more vocal as to their criticism and acknowledgement that he is under pressure. Not just the rags, but local journalists and Sky.

 

I cling to the hope that there is something in this at least and change is coming

Good luck to him.

 

What he does when he leaves us isn’t my concern, I’m just bothered about what he’s doing here and at present his sides are serving up in general pretty dire performances and are under performing.

Lambert would be good, but I would give Carlos a little bit longer. No runaway leader in the league and if we can manufacture a run we might get to where we need to be. but if loses at Derby and doesn't beat Barnsley or Millwall then he'll be gone before November international break.

 

if they do decide to get rid then I'd have Lambert or Hecky at Barnsley.

Big Jack and Tony Toms. Lets make it happen..

 

Love to see them all running through Greno Woods every day as a warm up. Only let them see the ball on a match day so they're hungry for it. And scratchy Bukta kits.

Then comes two poor decisions from Lambert's point of view...Blackburn & Wolves. However, his record at both of these clubs, were still respectable. Left both of these clubs because he wasn't going to have a bigger enough say in transfers etc. 

This could well put the lid on the notion of him taking over here then.

I wouldn't doubt it, he's a good manager as evidenced by his first season with us

But good managers can go bad at certain clubs... it isn't just about the quality of the manager, it's about the timing of the appointment, personnel around him etc. Even the best managers can potentially stay too long and things turn sour. I think believing anything else other than we're at that stage with Carlos now is sticking your head in the sand. Lord knows I wish it could have lasted longer, but it's time to let it go.

It's a bit like needing to take your pet cat to the vets to go to sleep innit

I don't want it to happen

I'm hoping that the cat (carlos) jumps up and goes climbing trees again, but as it stands there's more chance of his back legs giving in and doing a diahorreah puddle all over the kitchen floor

lol

Alas, it's pretty much the right analogy. 

 

If you want another one, it's like when you're dating a lass in your early 20's and you realise it isn't going to work out, but instead of breaking up you try and stick it out as long as you can and hope things improve. Ultimately the only thing it does is make you more miserable, waste both your time and means once the breakup finally happens you both feel very bitter about the whole situation. 

 

The sex life has turned stale and repetitive, we're tired of hearing the same stories from him again and again, and now we're looking at other men and wondering what it'll be like to have them instead of Carlos. Time to go get a new man in our lives by the sounds of things.

I like the idea for his experience at international level, he's also played abroad in at least Germany as well as the porridge league and here. 

The thing that excites me is his willingness to give the youngsters a game or two, bring them on and improve them. It's pointless spending money improving that area with no will to actually blood them or improve them which Carlos preferring his old heads.

Good analogy, looking back to the udders playoff farce the stink of shat in the kitchen seemed to last for weeks :biggrin:

Mr C should have taken a trip to the vets then.
