Re: Going Down??

Sacking a manager (whoever they are) when you are in the upper half of the table is a very "modern football" thing to do, and it's also bloody stupid, unless they have committed a major transgression (and winding up some of our less patient fans with a shushing gesture does not count). It was hard t...

Re: Going Down??

I've been watching the prices - in the last week we've moved from 12-1 against going down to 5-1. I actually suspect it's more likely than that latter price suggests. I'm worried.

Re: Big pile of poo-sbury (not really)

Yeah, Oldham, Fleetwood and Rochdale are the crucial games now, I feel. Six points from those should hopefully just about do it. Anything less, and the other games look pretty tough...

Yeah, they need to sort this out. It just feels like it's drifting.

Re: Who do you want next?

I seem to recall Clotet being regarded as one of the country's "most promising coaches" too - not sure we're looking for a "coach" - we're looking for a manager.

Re: Spotafan Trophy 2017-18 / #BTeamBoycott

So did more than 1000 Us fans (1073 to be exact) really go to Stamford Bridge last night? To watch us play a bloody U21 side? Bloody hell. Whatever happened to the boycott...?

Glad we finally got knocked out.

Re: Who do you want next?

Hmm, not sure about Faz and Chrissy Allen. Every time we go down that route (Fordy, Lewis, Patterson, etc.)_ it doesn't exactly seem to go well. Not sure about the inexperience of Lampard either, but I guess the likes of Eastwood and Ledson might be blinded into staying by the appeal of his "big nam...

Re: Pep Booted

Yeah, it's an odd decision. I've been very pessimistic about our play recently, but would certainly have given Pep at least until the end of the season, barring an absolutely shocking sequence of results. After all, however badly we've been playing lately, we're in the top half of the table. So ther...

Re: When do we start panicking?

Certainly glad I didn't bet on our beating Bury at home. Blimey, we aren't much good are we. Thank goodness for that points cushion. Even so, it would be good if someone could point me to where we get the 12 points. If we do get drawn into a relegation battle, I don't fancy our chances. We have not ...

Re: No more Payne

Absolutely - I've always thought our "natural level" was exactly that, bouncing between the second and third tiers.

Re: When do we start panicking?

No, I mean I'd be very surprised if we didn't stay up now. It's just that (a) there's little point in looking up the table, despite the seemingly narrow gap, as most of those sides up there seem way better than us, and (b) given the way we seem to be playing lately, I'm not particularly confident of...

Re: When do we start panicking?

I dunno. I'm still looking down the table rather than up. Until we get 50 points (assuming we do). I honestly have very little faith in this side at the moment, despite the last two wins
