I don't think Cowley is coming here. Just looked to see if Bodie and Doyle were in the betting for assistants and there's no sign of 'em, FFS :rolleyes:. But I could be MI5taken of course. :duntmatter:

The kind of progressive appointment I would love to see.

 

But if they turned down WBA with all of their parachute payments, why the heck would they consider us under embargo? 

Absolutely. The clowns who got the club into this position by scattergun generally low quality recruitment should now be realising that no decent manager wants to come and that only the desperate or somebody wanting a leg up will consider it. And our players wages are so high we are stuck with some players we do not want to play unless their contract ends. Boyd has had to drop down to Peterboro he is so far over the hill and he was playing for the first XI here not so long ago. 

Bruce remarked on seven strikers but even now there are still six!

Another plea from my heart and soul to not use the word ‘ progressive’ . It means absolutely nothing in this context and the sentence has the same meaning without using the word. 

 

Disagree.  I use the word to indicate a manager who is young and whose biggest achievements are ahead of them not behind them.  I use the word to indicate a manager who is open to new ideas and innovative and doesn't rely on football lore and "the way its always been done".

 

So put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Is Pep a ‘ progressive ‘ manager or not ? Are his best achievements behind him or in front of him ? Was Claudio Ranieri at Leicester progressive ? Isn’t your first definition more simply expressed as ‘ young’?

As for the second, last time I looked Lincoln players weren’t spending training sessions learning to play the accordion, speaking esperanto to each other then fielding a formation of 3-1-2-1-1-2 with a dog up front and tank of sharks in goal. In fact, they looked remarkably like a Howard Wilkinson team who launch it up to a variety of hefty units up front.

The word has no meaning and should be made illegal.

Now now, that isn't a very progressive mindset :ph34r:

I must sound like a broken record saying this - but if they turned down West Brom, who finished higher than us and have more money to spend on transfers than we do, why would the Cowley brothers come here?

Sorting the women's team is the club's #3 priority, behind #1, telling Newcastle where to shove it, and #2, selecting a font for the 'Chansiri' sponsor on the new kit. Finding the right font can be a bit of nightmare sometimes.

I've just heard Emma Royds has been interviewed.  I'm now expecting punters to "pile" on the bets on her instead.

Doesn't matter who the manager is.

 

We go through pre season with an illusion we are a 4-4-2 team, then we get humbled against teams like Wigan etc...
