Re: New Manager

Where ones this idea that it was NH’s idea to sack Clement come from ? Was it his idea to sack Gourlay ? Much more likely that the owners decided that their various senior staff weren’t delivering and needed to be replaced, so they removed Gourlay, replaced him with NH and told NH his first job was...

Re: New Manager

My fear is that Howe has seen us succeed on the cheap (relatively speaking) under Coppell and McDermott and may be looking for a manager to emulate that, However we kind of need a quick fix to at least get out of danger and that may cost a few quid. Surely Howe will be recruiting to match the spec ...

Re: New Manager

Christ on a bike. let`s get a manager of one of the only two sides below us. all the romantic geeks on social media think he`s the man for us. His career management record is ordinary in the extreme. 37.7% win rate. how is he the man to keep us up? Because he has a much higher career win rate than ...

Re: Clement sacked!

Strange timing...and I think he deserved longer.

Rodgers, Clarke and Adkins were all sacked in Dec though and on each occasion we stayed up.

Re: Are we really going down this season

At the end of the day its 50--50...points totals and comparing to previous seasons is irrelevant; all we have to do is finish higher than three teams which we are currently doing - just. Ipswich have gone back to early season form already and I don't rate Lambert at all, they will go down, as are Bo...

Re: FA cup 3rd round draw

Interesting fact...Man U have played Reading in the FA Cup more than any other side bar Liverpool and Spurs, which is surprising given our historic failure (pre 2000) to get beyond the 4th round.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Stoke City (h) sponsored by Dylan Kerr

Just papers over the cracks - there is just so much wrong with Clement's "management" that it is not funny. Statistically he is the worst manager in our football league history. 6 wins, 8 draws in 28 league games. He has no idea what the best 18 is, and he chops and changes every match. H...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

I still wish we were called The Biscuitmen. Who decided to switch to the Royals? Supporters? Chairman? I think the club decided to change mid 1970's as Huntley and Palmers moved more and more of their business away from the area to Liverpool I believe. I am sure there was a call to fans in a match ...

Definitely IN for me. I see a huge improvement from the gutless and awful displays under Stam. We are (admittedly very slowly) getting better. To me the difference between this season and last is the Ipswich performance Saturday as compared to the Birmingham at home performance under Stam. Last sea...
