Did a Paddy power add a year or so ago and I think been a pundit abroad, maybe less hassle and I would assume pays well?


That would explain it then. Can completely understand why they go down the pundit route must be easy money compared to being a manager.

If Wilder went to Newcastle the entire economic stability of Saudi Arabia would be at risk

He'd sign Billy Sharp as his first transfer.

 

Getting the band back together.

As if those new Newcastle owners know who Wilder is. Imagine if they gave their unlimited funds to the bus driver with a chip on his shoulder.

After beating Stoke on Saturday they were full of beans and were predicting to be challenging top 6 after easy wins against Millwall and Barnsley. :tango:

 

They've had this problem all season. They win an obvious "turnaround" game then drop a complete clanger in the next one. They can't seem to put a run together and some of their home results to last minute goals have been rotten. Not exactly the recipe to be talking about the top 6, is it. 

 

Think they're running out of time to get it right, too. There are other teams that started worse but now look more promising and higher in the league already, notably Forest.

Think the other thing of note is that of the four games they’ve won, three of them were Derby (24th), Peterborough (23rd), Hull (21st). 
 

Against sides in the top half, their record is P7, W1, D1, L5, having just had a quick gander now. 
 

SJ’s teams have quite often started slowly from memory (Watford and Fulham) but he’s increasingly looking like a bit of a ‘right man, wrong time’ appointment- a great manager but not one that has typically managed teams through a significant transition/overhaul period I don’t think.

And where most of the squad are drinking buddies with the previous manager!

Hard to laugh at them at the moment

 

Least they've lost their best player through suspension now though. Shame it's not 3 matches

Is it? 

 

When did they qualify for Europe and win a cup? 

 

They're a big standard 2nd tier team with an ageing squad who just had one of the worst PL seasons in history and spubked a ton doing so. 

 

Granted we have issues but when has that ever stopped anyone having a bit of fun at their biggest rivals expense?!

Saw a rumour about Brewster going on loan to Forest. 
 

Can only therefore assume the Nottingham club have decided that scoring no goals is the way forwards, if that’s true.

 

He’ll score goals under Cooper. Be a great move for him TBH.

Cooper looks to be doing a good job of turning forest round ( up to Sunday) how funny would it be if they get Brewster for a knock down fee and he then scores the goals that takes Forest up.
