Lump On

Those who want Bullen to stay as Manager I ask you why?

Recommended Posts

Because, as I have said in another thread, the thought of taking a team that's top of the league and working hard together as a unit and giving it to Gary 'upper mid table never seen out promotion' Rowett makes my skin crawl. It would be Danny Wilson taking over from Big Ron all over again. 

 

If being top of the league suddenly brings Hughton back into the frame then maybe, but give this side to Chris Coleman? fizz right off.Sol Campbell? No flipping testicles way.

Mmmmm. Dotty Posted at 8am. I suppose that must be normal bedtime for you M’lud, out at the casino all night, Stobbs driving you home, a couple of noggins prior to staggering into the four poster for kip as the skylarks begin to chirrup. 

 

Talking of four posters Dotty, this must be your fourth Wooly Bully OP  - is Neil giving you a discount rate?

I take Wednesday up every year on FM to be fair so I think I could do it! 

If you play that then you well and truly know we got fm'd against millwall 21 shots 9 on target against their 3 and 2 on target.

 

9 times out of 10 we score some of them shots.

I don’t get it? Great guy but I genuinely believe we should have won all 4 and just because he’s won 3/4 that doesn’t warrant him keeping the job 

 

All 4 teams where there for the taking and Lee did is job to a degreebut we would have expected that from anyone in charge, if I was in charge I would have expected 4 wins it’s been our easiest start for years! 

 

Hes a a great guy but fills me with no confidence, there’s been cracks in every game and they will get bigger and bigger. Soon as we start playing tougher opposition and we will the results will dry up and everyone is going to turn on Bullen and Chansiri like you’ve never known and instead of being “Mr Sheffield Wednesday” he will be out of work. 

 

Neg away but end of the day I said this since well before the season started.

I kind of agree with you but if the right man isn’t available yet then I’d keep with him for now. There’ll be one or two managers out of work in a couple of months anyway. We’re top of the league, so you can’t ask for more, but I’m concerned we couldn’t Score against 10 men and last nights victory against A newly promoted team, 2nd bottom in the league was unconvincing. The first half we didn’t seem to know whether we were pressing high or not, some would go, others not and Luton opened us up several times. The second half was better but a long way short of what we need.

To be fair I said when I saw the first 4 games we would be top of the league and was mocked for it

Dotty - your persistence has finally got me off the fence

 

Olly says we should give it him

Wilder says we should give it him

Kevin Phillips (aka Rowett love child) says we should give it to him

But I say this is why we should give it him - he talks sense, loves the club and has the authority to challenge the players AND the fans

Managers are based on results, 3 wins out of 4, good enough for me for me at the moment.

Dotty, your Rowett thread was gold. Since then they've been brown.

Go for gold son.

Quite simple for me.  Firstly, from what I can see, he's got the support from key players in the dressing room - Bannan, Hutchinson, Fletcher and Westwood.  If you've got these on your side, then the rest of the team are going to follow.

 

It's early days, but if the Snake was still in charge and we were in this position, we'd all be bouncing off the walls.  The same if it we'd appointed any of the Managers on the list, such as Rowett,Hughton or some random foreign coach - thinking we'd discovered the next big thing.

 

As someone else has mentioned, this weekend will be the biggest test, if we can get through this then I'd be scratching my head why anyone would be questioning his position.  Then again, I think Bullen will always be up against this, not receiving enough credit for winning games but having any loss scrutinised.  We will lose more games this season and I can guarantee we'll have some terrible performances but for as long as I've been watching us, this has always been the case - irrespective of who is in charge. 

 

I keep seeing "experience" being mentioned, granted he's no Sir Alex Ferguson but conversely he isn't someone who has gone from playing last week to falling into the top job.  

I think very few are 'questioning his position' as his position is effectively 'caretaker' head coach/manager. as such for me he should continue in that position for around a dozen games to assess the situation more clearly.

whilst results hold there is no rush to appoint over bullen's head, should our form fall away then obvious matters will need to be dealt with accordingly.

less of the 'give it him now' and 'he's not good enough' talk, and give him more time to prove himself.

Who do you suggest then that is currently a free agent? Please give your reasons for your suggestion, but also bear in mind that really we aren't supposed to be challenging this season anyway, the squad is still in transition and will only be fully upgraded next summer when we are more aligned on FFP/P&S.

Let's not kid ourselves here, whoever gets the job, be it Bully or your choice, please don't think that we should be top 6 come May because we don't have the quality or the balance to sustain a promotion bid in my humble opinion.

Ignoring who wrote the thread, I kind of agree with what's said about tougher games. We will see if LB can cut it then

 

In the last year he's also beaten Preston, 4th placed Boro away where we'd won once in our 13 previous visits, and was a minute from winning away at promotion favourites WBA. 

 

Those sort of tougher games? (waits for somebody to say aah what about Burton)

Game by game, challenges are thrown at Bullen, and after 4 games, he's failed a few but passed most of them.

 

I'm quite happy for the audition to continue for another few games.

 

Should results against Preston and QPR go favourably, the clamour to appoint Bullen will really begin to surmount.

 

But even so, we then have Huddersfield away, Fulham at home, and then Boro away; three tough games against squads with much greater quality than what we'll have faced up to that point - I'd understand if DC would prefer to assess the situation after those games instead.

 

Gray had 11 games as caretaker manager before MM gave him the job permanently. Certainly, when Gray first took over as caretaker there weren't many backing him to take the job permanently, but just a month later the majority of fans were fully behind him, and by the time (another month later) he was actually appointed, fans were practically demanding it to the point that some were even beginning to turn on MM for not having done so yet.

 

I think DC would be wise to let it run for now and see if there's a similar outcome.

easiest thing in the world to post

I could wait until the new appointee is in place, then call for his head...I'll be right.....eventually.

then i trawl back through the posts....and say .."see!!!"

3 wins out of 4...Its the championship...Its a decent record in the Championship, underlined by the fact we are top of the Championship.

No matter who we have played..Its the Championship and rarely predictable.

First half yesterday was abysmal...I admit...Bullen saw it, changed, we won and pl;ayed well in the second half..I'll honestly take that.

I would have been worried if he hadn't recognised what was happening, because most in the ground could see it.

Jos was totally different....We would have just carried on..same with Jones in his latter time with us..Irvine ALL the bloody time...

Until a likely candidate sticks his head up...what do you suggest...Change for the sake of it...based on being top of the league?

can't see the sense tbh

My only concern is that the players started very slowly last night and we only played acceptably well for 45 minutes.

This is a familiar trait over the years.  Better teams would have punished us in the first half.

If he can get them motivated for a full 90 minutes in every game then he should get the job, until then let the status quo continue.

It might be more the players who are a bit comfy, after all many of them have been here for as long as this fault has been happening.

Pre match motivation is what is required not half time rants

Preston on the weekend will be a big test, we always have a nightmare at their place, not won away to these since 2011 in league 1 lol .

We hadn't beaten Luton since the ice age but look what happened last night. All runs have to end sometime. Saturday is the day the Preston hoodoo ends.

Don't some just love a new knocking thread.  Why can't we just love our own (inc Morgan Fox)?  Such a destructive attitude.  Wonder if they say this sort of thing about you when you take on new work responsibilities (presuming you're not still at school)...
