OFFICIAL Club statement. Jos gone. Bullen in charge for Preston

Recommended Posts

All those thinking he'll bring back all the frozen out players forget they've not played competitive football for months and who knows wether they've even been training even.

 

Westwood played 45 at Lincoln pre-season and 45 in an U23 game.

Hutch hasn't played since Brentford away in September was it?

Abdi, can't remember when he last played but sure it was last season

 

Winnall, Hooper and Lee and Forrestierri are all still injured 

 

All in all can't see that many changes tomorrow, maybe Boyd might play some part as he's had a couple of U23 games recently I think.

 

Best people can hope for if wanting some of above players back is to maybe be in squad and on subs bench.

Whoever comes in needs to sort the defence out first job.

He said he will be honest with fans.

He said he won't sack Jos because next manager will have same problems.

48 hours later...

Nowts changed, the next manager, whoever he is, still has the problems.

An over aged, overpaid and injury prone squad, lacking pace and power.

Hopefully those will be taken care of in January with loan players.

Sad when it comes to this because it means we are once more in the crap. Hopefully onwards and upwards.

Very, very, very interesting to see if the Frozen Ones turn into Chosen Ones tomorrow.

What happens if we lose with them?.

Just a thought, after all they didn't pull any trees up last season.

I'm not saying that Jos should have stayed, just can't trust someone who changes mind every other day. He could have easily refuse to answer that question, it would be more honest than this. Maybe he backed him at fans forum because he didn't have next manager lined up... we will never know.

 

Anyway thank you Jos for saving us last season, maybe it would have been different if he was able to bring in more players.

 

By the way, Chansiri also said that Abdi will never play for this club again, should we expect him to be captain tomorrow?

I honestly don't know. It's very hard to tell if they could make any difference, it's at least going to be very hard with very little match experience they have had. Maybe the question is, does Bullen want to give the loudest fans what they want or does he have his own mind at least for a game or two.

 

What I think is that Westwood will be between the sticks because he already featured for the U23s, Dawson needs to be off the limelight for a while anyway.

And folk are jumping through hoops with the news on JL. I think they are forgetting the current chairman is still here who makes all the decisions. God only knows who the next appointment might be.  

 

Evidence of one of the problems at this club. 

 

About time we we all started pulling in the same direction

So we now have a Bullen/Weaver as the temporary management team. This is just getting better by the hour, but I suppose that disappears into insignificance as  JL as now departed so everything will now become rosier. What isn't surprising is the amount of folk on here who have conveniently forgot about FFP. As that also fu*ked off with the manager.

Well he hasn’t sorted it out has he?  Otherwise Bullen wouldn’t be in caretaker charge.

The sorting out was lettin jos go,putting the feelers out for bruce to come maybe started a month ago,have ya read about bruce's family issues recently ?,him takin a break is not such a bad idea,ya don't like bullen we get it,suck it up,till the "announced" man comes in.

He's been touted on here before,was as ridiculous then as it is now,£6 million a year,don't think so.

 

His Everton contract was a staggering £9m. I don't want him, he's damaged goods. We would also have to hire a chewing gum removal team which we can't afford.

Part of the problem was Jos.

 

Maybe now the players will grow a pair and start performing.

 

The last 18 months have been poor.

Interestingly enough I just found this. He doesn't seem to on on the clubs radar but news changes so quick at S6 who knows.

Letting Luhukay go hasn’t sorted anything out though.  That was the easiest decision that the club has ever had to make.

 

Can you provide any proof that the club have been speaking to other managers while Jos has remained in post?

 

Personally, I doubt it.  Two nights ago, the chairman was singing Luhukay’s praises.

 

It could have cost the club a fortune to pay Jos off and now we now don’t have a manager.  Like I’ve posted, Bullen’s last caretaker spell was an abomination.  Tomorrow could be a sobering experience against a bang-in-form Preston.

 

I’ll keep the champagne in the fridge for now.
