Yep, and all this s*it or bust this season talk is a load of throw, we were apparently going to be in financial ruins this summer according to the bed wetters.

I thought that was the case (unless they change the FFP limits)?

 

Weren't we in an embargo based on a first year overspend of around £7m, the ground sale has got us out of that, next season won’t the first year overspend be around £20m?

 

Surely that’s a potential problem unless we sell the ground again lol

 

Ah just read your post properly, you are talking about this summer!

 

Having said that I think we would have been without the ground sale.

Nope. That is my criticism of DC. People complain about choices he's made running the club, but my grumble is the slow nature of things happening. The wheels turn too slow. Everything is long and drawn out, when sometimes he needs to be quick and decisive with a robust response. 

 

my criticisms of DC are  many over a few areas  which for the most part are his decisions born from his personality it isn't going to change and his connections who dont' seem to either

 

however over this particular episode I'm still 100% behind his handling of this bruce aftermath, the public face anyway, doubt many if any know what is actually happening 

I'm totally aware how close we are to the season start but  i really don't think he should be knee jerked into an appointment  or criticised for not having a replacement in before bruce ordered his first geordie kebab

he needs to get it right - I sincerely hope he does

I think it’s a big appointment but I think there are some good candidates for where we are at realistically staring us in the face. Rowett in particular. 

 

We move far too slowly in every respect. Wait to long and some of these will find work elsewhere.

Which is why the likes of Rowett, Pulis, Coleman etc have been out of work for ages, no one wants them. So the chances of them finding work elsewhere in the next week while we work out what we want, are minuscule

I’m not talking about the next week. Taking a couple of weeks is understandable, but If we get into a see how Bullen gets on situation that’s quite different.

 

They haven’t been out of work that long.Just wait til September when a couple of managers go and the key names will dissapear.

If he were to appoint a manager today, would that be knee-jerk? A slow appointment does not guarantee a right one. Some decisions are harder to make when you over-analyse and dwell. It needs to be someone that has put themselves forward for the job. I don't like the thought of persuading someone to take it. We've just had an uncommitted manager. Don't want another. DC has the list...get on and pick one.

Yes big decision, Shish or Doner, maybe the house special which is a bit of everything. Go for it, one of each you greedy fat bast.....

16 days til the transfer window.... Tick tock 

 

Concerning that. We have a decent squad but to really compete we need further additions ASAP. We are already going to start the season on the back foot, players arriving last minute won’t help this.

By which time Bullen could have taken us well and truly out of contention, à la 2018/19 Luhukay.

 

Maybe so. I just can't see myself looking back to 2019 in 5 years time and ruing the day we missed out on Tony Pulis
