We're not gonna get a big manager with a basket case chairman.  Best we can hope for right now is just somebody different until the end of the season who can play our best team and have plenty of energy to avoid relegation.

He managed Swansea to there highest points total in the Premier League and had 40% win rates in championship.  So I guess he us better than some give credit.  It is clear he is not the problem and him going resolves nothing.

Talk of Megson and Pulis is laughable. How long ago were fans in here complaining Monks tactics were hoofball.  So let bring in the hoofball masters to change things. 

Its got nothing to do with 'hoofball' or styles, at the minute we need results, we need to stay up, Monk cant get anything more out of these.

 

I'd love Megson to come in and sort some of this fraudulent lot out.

Blame Monk if you want, but he had us 3rd at Christmas. I'm not a fan of his. I see no plan or playing philosophy in what he's doing - but we were competitive in every game. The players have switched off. Monk tried to dismiss it as inconsistency to begin with, but that doesn't wash. Inconsistent teams aren't 3rd halfway through the season, they're kicking about mid-table.

 

These players have a lot to answer for. They down tools whenever they want. Despite being handsomely paid to play the game they supposedly love in front of thousands of supporters, they still can't bring themselves to give a shît. 

 

Completely agree. Only Fletcher has done anything worthy or warranting being here next season and even then it would need to be on reduced terms due to his age.

 

The problem is we cant get rid of all the players until the season is done. Monk continues to pick them, continues to serve up rubbish and continues to be out of the game by half-time. He is the one thing we can change now. Someone else might get a couple of months decent results out of these players - as Monk and his predecessors did, then the players can all be told where to go in the summer.

Its baffling.....So what do you put it down to....?

If we agree on say for instance ...

Forestieri is better than Cruz or Pelepussy..Is it obvious?

I'm of the opinion it is (No coaching badge (r)s)

I would go as far as to say its blindingly obvious..I would sway towards playing Hunt..who did more in 20 minutes the other night than Cruz or JP.

So why..pick that line up at Brentford?

Has he got favourites?

Are some of "deep rooted" problems involving certain players?

I think a managerial change at this stage would be too little too late. By the time new guy gets his views across and a response from the players, season's over. Monk isn't great by any stretch of the imagination, but the players have screwed us. If DC can't fight these charges, we're going one way.

Look, Monk isn't a bad manager. He's shown promise, decent spells in his career and still only 40. 

 

I agree, football has been simplistic, one dimensional at times whether by design or contrained by players available. He also showed what could be achieved with a committed squad before Christmas. 

 

That said results of late not good enough and the manner of performance levels alarming.

 

Whether he stays or goes isn't going to upset me, I'm not not naive enough to put blame solely on him and think that it would solve our problems  

 

Far from it, in the short term we'd get Bullen back and the players back in control of the holiday camp, then a Paxo choice of replacement, in no particular rush.

We were 3rd when he got the sack, big players were missing through injury.

Antonio made a huge difference to our side, a player megson brought in.

Dave Jones got a few results and it snowballed.

The pigs also had some bad luck with the Ched Evans saga.

 

Right now Id take Megson over Monk anyday but I seriously doubt he could work under Chansiri/ Doyan and AP.

Not sure that was bad luck, he did what he did before that season started and was found guilty 1st time around. They relied upon him so didn't sanction him but sacked an academy player for tweeting about it. 

 

We needed the change of manager that season for fresh impetus, just as we need a change of manager now and I would take Megson over Monk, not that it is going to happen.

I diasagree with Striker 100% when he says:

Well I think Monk is dreadful:

poor team selections

counter-productive

zero motivation

conflict in the camp.

 

It is clear to see why Swansea, Boro and Birningham fired him pretty pronto.

 

As a fan base we are sfar too accepting of rubbish ten a penny managers like Monk.

 

The results arfe shocking and we need some ambition.

 

We really can do far better than this.

Results alone are reason enough to get rid. Results and performance wise, it's as poor or worse as when Jos was axed. The issues are bigger than just the manager, we lack leadership from top to bottom on and off the pitch, we need restructuring, a clear out and rebuilding of players and coaching staff, a revamp, long term plan and to be more sensible, etc.

 

The likes of Bullen needs to go with the players and Monk. But in the meantime we need results simply to stay up and we need a proper reset, plan and rebuild in the summer. Someone proven and experienced to generate respect and get in to the players heads what it means and get a few results out of them to keep us up for now or an exciting manager on the rise to bring some life, excitement and fight back into us.

 

Bottom line for me is results are simply not good enough, issues are bigger than the manager but one thing we can change due to results is the manager. Monk has to go for now to have any chance of staying up but long term we need more of a  long term sensible plan.

If we need a firefighter to come in for the last 9 games then Warnock would be ideal, he's retiring at the end of the season so it would only be very short term. Then bring someone new in, in the summer when all the deadwood has been released.

 

As for Megson I can guarantee he wouldn't come to the club under Chansiri, I know people who know him and let's just say he's not exactly a fan.
