Jos storms out

I can't honestly think of any professional football manager, or player for that matter, who hasn't been in it for the money.

They might give all the guff about loving the club or the game but when a better offer comes along they're gone. 

 

Understandable considering they can be sacked at any moment.

 

Only we could end up with a Chairman who firstly appoints unemployed shiit managers, but also then hasn't the balls to sack said shiit managers.

I meant he cares more about the money then actually doing a decent job 

 

Not implying I expect him to take the job for free

 

If I knew I couldn’t do a job, I wouldn’t turn up everyday taking a hefty salary and continue to fail, with thousands and thousands of people wanting my head

Does Jos not expect to be questioned about his job with the results. He should have stayed calm and professional in avoiding answering.  It is not easy, ask anyone in retail or dealing with the public. 

 

I can't remember ever getting asked if I was going to get sacked.

I'm not really convinced that bit is true either.

I think he does care about doing a decent job but for various reasons he is unable to do that with us.

I'm obviously not sure of the exact reasons but would guess, possible restrictions on picking players, player injuries, lack of knowledge of championship football.

Brian Clough would have handled it differently.

"Do I think I'm going to get the sack? Well let me put it this way young man, I've heard a few of your commentaries and I think they are rubbish.

You want to get all your certificates and payslips and throw them in the bin, because you've got them all by bloody cheating."

If I knew everyone wanted me out of a job, I wouldn’t feel comfortable continuing working there, regardless of money 

 

Clearly he’s got no morals or standards 

 

 

I don't think that's very harsh and an inappropriate comment to make, TBH

 

The bloke is trying but it's not working and there are doubtless many reasons for this.

 

However, he's in a position where he must keep trying until told to do otherwise by his employers.

I’m not convinced whatsoever, but respect your opinion

I just feel he’s becoming more and more isolated and if things continue like they currently are then things are only going to get worse? Given his reputation for walking out on jobs in Germany, I’m absolutely amazed he’s sticking it out here given he only said the other day he hasn’t experienced criticism like he’s currently receiving here ever before?

Lucky you. If you had read it it was about staying calm and professional when provoked

In his defence would you resign from your job and not take the pay out?

 

He fully knows this is his last job in football. He wants his retirement money, can’t blame him both you and me would.

 

This is all Chansiri’s fault for making a shocking appointment and it’s all his fault for not sacking him. The man needs putting out of his misery, it’s embarassing now.

Its all chansiris fault that our squad is poo as well

Questions about Jos’s future are in that macho area of journalism. Journalists feel like they have to ask the questions but the answer is almost always going to be pointless. It’s posturing on behalf of the journalist and really it’s asking the wrong person. 

 

 Chansiri is the only bloke who can answer it properly. It’s all part of the journalistic game.  Wtf is Jos going to say - yes I might get sacked on Monday. Having said that he should be professional enough to just bat it back. 

 

Yes He should say to Giddings are you thick or or simply ignorant because I’ve answered the question before to the best of my abilities. Next question.

TBF he has a win % of 39% (Calculated by removing the outliers of 1 game at Koln as caretaker, and 6 at Stuttgart)

 

Most managers fall between 30% and 50%. So he's pretty consistent with the average

 

He resigned from Paderborn, Augsburg and Stuttgart

 

Was sacked by BMG and Hertha

It's all stage managed by the komandant. Storming out is better than having to answer questions. Anyway he's under orders not to answer.

You would have thought that given his past of walking out on a job after a couple of months that the pressure from this job and the majority of the fan base wanting him out he will eventually resign from this job. I believe that is the only way he will leave because clueless DC won’t sack him.

Not heard the interview myself because I always turn down the sound when Jos comes on. My mate listened to it though and he’s a Stoke fan. He said Giddings was being a wee pipe and winding Jos up on purpose. That would explain a lot. Giddings only retort would be that he was only asking the questions the fans want to hear, well I’m not sure that would be the case. That said, if Jos isn’t sacked this week I’ll want to know why

Just listening to RS interviewing Andy Giddings......... about THE interview.

Seems a lot of empathy for Jos by them.

i have to say though, there always appears a massive difference in how CW is interviewed .... with reverence, and how Jos is interviewed ... teetering on contempt.

That is certainly not fair ... no matter how unhappy we are with him.

Jos is effectively saying I don't care if Owls go down , I'm here until paid off. Nice.

 

Plus his humiliation from Chansiri - as he  hunts for his replacement- is complete.

 

Jos must have complete respect of players. And morale?

Untrue. He has an option to resign, anytime.
