Re: Mark Bowen Whelmgauge

Underwhelmed.... although to be fair, I was also underwhelmed with with Alan Pardew and Brian McDermott and they did okay. Then again Mr Mad seemed to have the ability to pull people from nowhere and get them to work. Mr Dai seems to have the ability to get anyone who's useless and allow them to be...

Re: Mark Bowen Whelmgauge

So we took a nobody portuguese with a poor record, to a guy who's management record is LOST EVERY GAME HE'S EVER MANAGED. Okay, it was against Man Utd, so we know if we get them in the FA cup we'll lose. https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/20374677 And that was 7 years ago. What does Bowen bring that...

Re: Next Manager

Hughes would be a very sensible option and will do very well here, I’m sure if it. I personally would have him over Hughton. I just can’t understand people horror that it will be Hughes. He’s a decent manager. Plenty of experience and hopefully will give the players a kick up the back side they nee...

Re: GOMES OUT!

Wrong decision. Gutted. I'd have said it was the wrong decision if he'd actually done something. His win rate is appalling at 23.7% of games won. He's in the relegation zone after bringing in players. Okay, he had to get rid of some, but the team shouldn't be where it is. His record as a manager is...

Re: The next 6 games.

Pretty horrendous league run coming up against current form teams Swansea A Fulham H Bristol city A Preston H QPR A Forest A Fully expect us to be bottom 3 after that lot, would rip your arm off for 8-10 points but expect 4-6 somehow. Don't we do better against good teams, and then when we play tea...

Re: GOMES OUT!

When he first arrived I posted about his managerial statistics. He's on a win rate of 25.7%. That's worse than his last two teams at 31.3% and 26.3%. His previous one was 7.7% over 13 games, he had a spell at three clubs where he was between 42% and 56% but in tinpot leagues. I'm not saying he shoul...

I think the thing here is about FOOTBALL. Bury are part of what makes football in the UK.

Re: Where will we finish?

This is going to be a fun thread to look back on.

I'm getting the same feeling as Stam's second season, that the corner is just around the corner and things will turn, eventually, just, after the next game, or that game after that. Though there's always a next game where things might just turn.
