So he wasn't informed by text message. He was told face to face 36/48 hours after the QPR game...

After he went off injured but hasn't been injured for two and a half years.

Monk told him he wasn't in his plans. It happens at every club.

I  remember Jim last season

"Monk won't last another week"
"Monk won't be here in a couple of weeks"
"I give it a month before Monk gets sacked"
"Chansiri will sack Monk before the end of the season"
"Monk will be gone before this season finishes"
"Monk will be gone in the summer"
"Chansiri will replace Monk in this summer - guaranteed"
"Monk will be sacked in the closed season"
"Monk will not be here next season"
"Monk might have made it through the summer but he won't last another couple of weeks"
"Monk will be gone by Christmas"

 

lol

In hindsight yes we should have, but we were going for the league that second season (yes it didnt work like that) why would we sell the best player in the league when we were aiming for the top.

 

I think the first season he was with us he did seem like the best player in the league but after that his interest seemed to go and his performances dropped off (plus his refusal to travel to Norwich).

That would have been the right time to sell him although I agree at that time the majority of fans wouldn't have agreed with it.

Fair enough I was wrong. Not for the first time and not for the last time I'm sure. That said with very similar records as I posted earlier it's fair to assume Monk would go the same way as Lukuhay would it not?

 

Personaliy I don't believe the chairman is as bothered now as he was in the past? Once again I may be proved wrong with this opinion? I just find it strange that one manager with a poor record gets the sack and another with just as poor a record gets backed?

You can clearly see how Hutch would be a problem around the place.

 

Whilst I do appreciate that Jos and Monk have done what they think is best for the club, you have to tip your hat to Carlos for keeping these big egos going to our two best seasons since the drop from the prem.

 

It's also interesting that under Stuart Gray we had no word of Westwood or Hutch being an issue..

If your kids are throwing themselves on the floor, throwing their toys around, crying and screaming and lobbing all their food across the table because they want a new Xbox (even though you'd  just bought them a brand new playstation the week before) you don't buy them a new Xbox.

That's all Carlos did


He just let the players do what they want

They ended up running the club


That's not good management at all - it's the polar opposite

Did 'the kids' get them to 6th and 4th though? If so, consoles galore with my blessing.  

 

Also, anyone who wants an Xbox after having a Playstation needs a good old sectioning.

Different style of management. If we’d beat Hull, Carlos and his ‘holiday camp’ would have been genius.

But we didn't, so it wasn't.

My kids can throw toys all over the place if they get me in the play offs

Must say I will never forget the open top bus parades around Sheffield ,players and manager proudly holding aloft our newly won 6th and 4th trophies

 

Oh for a return to the glory days!

Has Hutch signed for anyone yet? Thought he was our best centre back or something. ..


He will eventually go to someone like QPR and people will realise he isn’t the godlike player they believed.

Surely he'd have gone already if he was going to sign for someone?

No, no, no, no, no Neil.

Don't be silly.

 

When nuhiu hadn't signed for anyone, it was because he was carp. Hutch hasn't signed for anyone its because he's mulling over multiple options as he was... after all.. our best midfielder and best centre back. Surely.

Don’t be soft, absolutely no one said this. You obviously think Joey is a better player though.

All about opinions.
