  1. Plaudits for our Atmosphere, let's keep it up

    2-0 down, sounded like 5-0 down.
  2. Claudio offered the job?

    To be fair, it's from a direct interview with Ranieri.
  3. Wes Morgan's Indian Summer

    People were going crazy over Benalouane's first few games back in the team last season and quite a few were suggesting that he should carry on in the team even when Morgan was fit, claiming he was a superior player.
  4. Wes Morgan's Indian Summer

    To think I got slated last season by some people for suggesting that Benalouane wasn't the answer and that Morgan was a better player.
  5. Football Manager 2018

    He doesn't work here. He's an actual presenter.
  6. Next City Manager?

    Start off at a lower level? Become an assistant somewhere? He will have had opportunities but he believes he should walk into a Premier League managers job.
  7. Next City Manager?

    Being a good player and being in a good team has absolutely zero influence on how good of a manager you will be. Ryan Giggs would be a disaster.
  8. Next City Manager?

    Ryan Giggs does not have the intelligence or charisma to be a top manager. He's also only ever known one what it's like to be at the top. He doesn't know how to organise a team like ours.
  9. Swansea post match 2-1

    Yeah, I bet he can't get those hashtags and t-shirt designs out of his head when during a match. People do realise that footballers are allowed to do things outside of football? It just so happens that Fuch's interest are in the public domain, which means he gets ridiculously labelled for not focussing enough on his football.
  10. Manuel Pellegrini

    Would garner the respect that will hopefully get the Pearson/Shakespeare loyalists on board. Not a long-term option, but I guess with our board, no one is.
  11. Rudkin

    DoF/Sporting Directors are the way forward. They take a lot of the pressure off the manager/coach, whilst offering more long term thinking and stability compared to the manager. The problem is that our one is sh*t.
  12. Cheesed Off

    You can't blame them for having questions and being upset. Most of the squad were fully behind him and it did come out of the blue. I hate to bring this back to Rudkin, but if Neil Ashton in the S*n is to be believed it was his decision to sack Shakespeare. Sacking a manager that the majority of the squad are behind is likely to backfire. We now have no manager, a caretaker clearly miffed by it all, an unhappy squad who are angry at the board and clearly no contingency plan in place in regards to a replacement. Top work Jon
  13. Thoughts on Dyche?

    Sorry, but work rate was not the issue on Monday. Struggling to break WBA down was the issue. Do you remember Swansea away last season? Southampton away? United at home? Now they were performances lacking work rate and players not knowing their roles. A lot of people on this forum have totally overblown how poor we have been this season in regards to performances. It could have been a hell of a lot worse.
  14. Thoughts on Dyche?

    Work rate and togetherness have been fine. I saw a team giving their all on Monday night. Compare it to the performances under Ranieri towards the end and they are polls apart. Some of the criticism you mention have nothing to do with what I was talking about. They are tactical mistakes from Shakespeare. Despite poor performances and poor results, we have still shown resilience, character and fight towards the end. A lot of what Dyche prides himself on are not real issues for us currently. I don't see how things would change enough for there to be a real improvement.
  15. Thoughts on Dyche?

    If we were a team lacking organisation, lacking togetherness and shipping goals, then yes, I would want Sean Dyche. But we are not. Togetherness, motivation and organisation are already instilled within this squad, Shakespeare had no problems providing that. Shakespeare was sacked because he seemed to lack the tactical nous to break teams down and change games. We should be looking towards managers that are predominately tacticians. However, if the media is to be believed we want a disciplinarian, you know, because that worked out so wonderfully for Ranieri last season.
