Nixon’s take on the managerial situation


Recommended Posts

To be fair, he's right in the sense it is not how to run a football club. 

 

As well as Thompson is doing, and long may it continue, he only looks a credible option when compared with the  castrophic shortlist prepared by Paxo.

Not very impressed with how we’re going about things.

 

If this bloke is correct with his previous ramblings, that short list consisted of a hotch potch of random overseas managers with work permit issues and Chris Coleman. And not spoken to the one bloke with good credentials (because he was suggested by the 'wrong' advisor).

 

So not arguing about this not being how to run a football club, but a broken clock is right twice a day, so might somehow get to a decent end outcome.

Just come out and announce Thompson to the end of the season. That ends all speculation.

 

Nobody coming in now is going to improve us.

 

Imagine if we brought a new manager/coach in now and he started with 3 or 4 defeats ... Just get to the end of the season and save the cash.

Basically he's salty about his mate not getting the job - awful journalism in action here.

 

We are winning games - why post a highly negative article?


 

which mate?

Best leave it to the end of the season when there may be more decent candidates to look at

I suppose the issue is that should things go south under Thompson, those previously interested in the job might no longer be so keen to join a club heading towards League One with no prospect of adding new players and few games remaining.

 

There's nothing we can do about that now, though - if we were going to appoint a new permanent manager, the time to do so was within a couple of weeks of Pulis' sacking. We didn't, the transfer window has closed, and Thompson is getting results at the moment, so it would be crazy to change things right now.

 

We simply have to hope that Thompson can continue to defy the odds and somehow steer us clear of danger. If he does, then Chansiri owes him, big time.

No idea mate was just helping out lol 


 

No worries 

 

The answer to my question is no

 

So I’m confused why people have agreed/liked it before asking themselves if the post was even true in the slightest

Yeah, I think the notion of ‘argh damn I can’t get any info out of this club so I’m gonna slam them’ doesn’t really add up tbh

Nixon literally gets asked questions on Twitter all the time. Football fans from all clubs see him as some kind of oracle of knowledge for some strange reason. People even send him their betting slips for his opinion ffs.


This is just his opinion based on a question he was asked. Definitely not salty he’s not getting any information.

This is what happens when people click into a thread about a sports writer 

 

Too quick to post incorrect nonsense or make stuff up
 

Or too quick to press the like button before thinking if the post is true or correct

I like and respect Alan Nixon. Is far more spot when it comes to us than any journalist close to the club like Howson, Giddings and co. FFS anyone of us could do what Howson does? Saying this is not happening and this is wide of the mark and most of the time he’s right because we know that we do sod all as a club because of the basket case we are? At least Nixon comes off the fence and tells us what he knows or what he thinks is happening or will happen? Granted he gets it wrong from time to time but I would say 85% of the time he’s on the mark and that’s a  pretty high percentage TBF?

A lot of things to complain about, but I’m not sure what his beef is here. Interview  a bunch of managers but sticking with the guy who’s own 5 of his last 7 games isn’t really something to complain about, is it?

It’s a tough one on Chansiri

 

Should I Carry on with the same set up with the win rate being better than my last 4 managers or appoint some one who could do a Pulis and cost a fortune to get rid of after failing miserably
