Re: GOMES OUT!

Old Man Andrews
2 world wars, 1 world cup
Old Man Andrews My sources are telling me he has been sacked.


Fo' real?

Yes but that doesn't mean its true. Going to be announced tomorrow morning apparently but take it with a pinch of salt for now.


Fair enough.

I'm on the fence. I think I'll be equally happy and disappointed whatever happens.

Re: Gomes, Should he stay or should he go? Mk2

WoodleyRoyal Well blow me down with a feather. 99 votes 49 in 50 out. Divided the fans or what :shock:


Interesting. It was 40/60 for him to go when this started, but has since crept up to a 50/50.

Re: GOMES OUT!

Interesting point. No, after 5 games when our record was W2, D1, L2, and we were still in a new season high with exciting signings and someone who had helped bring a feel good factor back and kept us up, funnily enough no one thought Gomes should be sacked. However, the situation has changed. Since...

Re: GOMES OUT!

I'm assuming that no one was calling for Gomes to be sacked after we beat Huddersfield 2-0 away? So we're talking about a change of mind after 6 matches . . . . 6 matches . . . which include two away games against teams currently in the top six (one of which we drew). Look - I thought that hiring t...

Re: GOMES OUT!

This is the sort of attitude that sees you go all in on a pair of 2s post flop in poker and lose to a flush that's already two cards on the board. We're constantly on the edge of betting the farm on a long shot. Businesses have risk management for a reason, and this sort of approach should be right...

Re: GOMES OUT!

Whether it's good value for his ability or potential is moot. It's whether we should be signing players, particularly young unproven ones on that money at all. We are a Championship club with income of around £20m a year. We have no business paying anyone over £20k a week. That should be the top en...

Re: Gomes, Should he stay or should he go? Mk2

We need to decide what our expectations are this season. 1) If we think these players might have a chance at the playoffs like some (erm.. maybe only me?) were expecting then we need to act very quickly, see if he can turn it around quickly and let him have a shot as he'll be best placed to do it, b...

Re: GOMES OUT!

I'm going to disagree. On the basis of the performance against Cardiff and his international performances the transfer fee and anything less than 50k a week is an absolute steal and most of us at the time were thinking we got ourselves a bargain. Of course hindsight is a wonderful thing and his les...

Re: GOMES OUT!

My argument there would be that Puscas is virtually the only one missing chances, he`s in the right areas but just not finishing, I`m confident it will come sooner than later. Would you give Sam Baldock minutes in the next match? No no no. The last thing we need is more chopping and changing. Leavi...

Re: BFTG Bristol

There's a subscription based coaching thing on Twitter called Coaches Voice. They released some previews a couple of weeks ago, one of which was Jose Gomes. One thing I remember (though not specifically a centre back in the penalty box demo) was for players to mark spaces when defending outside the...

Re: BFTG Bristol

Hence the guess. Adie Williams and Mick Gooding have played at a high level and reckon the defenders are zonal (space) marking I think. Maybe they're just shite and incapable of man marking. Maybe there is no clarity from the defensive coach or Gomes so they're confused. Also not a pro, not sure, ju...

Re: BFTG Bristol

Hold on a minute. We have had half-a-dozen goals against this season that are 90% the fault of the 2 or 3 CBs There is no excuse for giving away regular free headers in the middle of the goal. No matter how good the cross (or bad the fullback play) the CBs should be making the play difficult for th...

Re: BFTG Bristol

Because part of the reason for the "shambolic defensive organisation" is down to Gomes himself. Why oh why do our fullbacks play so far forward? A good manager would identify the problem and alter his ways. But we haven't. And it's ridiculous Hold on a minute. We have had half-a-dozen goa...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

Oh actually looking at the notes more carefully I think that one has various words to it..I know sometimes it's "we've got the ball..we've got the ball..we've got the ball we've got the ball we've got the ball etc (or we've lost the ball). Other times isn't it the old Yann kermorgant chant? Th...

Re: BFTG Bristol

Ok so we don't know O'Shea's role. We don't know who brought him in. Whatever his role, an area we need desperate improvement in is our defensive organisation. As for O'Shea automatically being a great defensive coach just because he was physically good at defending I'm sorry Snowball I respectfull...
