  1. Claude Puel - Contender

    Yeah looks a good option. Won the French title with Monaco; CL semi-finalist with Lyon. As Lille coach he beat Man United and Milan (in the CL I think...?) He'll do.
  2. New Manager Suggestions

    I'm just taking it that this thread is for jokey suggestions.
  3. Chris Coleman...

    What you talkin' 'bout (Jimmy) Willis? Yeah but he was only 37. He's still younger now than a lot of Premiership Managers at 47. He did OK for Fulham. Coventry were a sinking ship and he's done OK for Wales. he's got good experience and maybe his best days are ahead of him. I'm in favour of Dyche, but if the Ginger c**t sez no... Who else is there?
  4. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I know. It's awful. All 'Bratwurst' will be required by EU law to contain exactly 63% halal meat, so that they don't offend the Muslimists.
  5. Chris Coleman...

    Yeah but that's COVENTRY you're talking about. It's not as if they bounced back once they got rid of him. With Fulham he finished 9th, 13th, 12th. When he was sacked in 2007, they were 4 points above the relegation zone with five games left. I don't think he's as bad as some people seem to think.
  6. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    You mean…. some sort of “Union” or something with Europe? I don’t know about that. It would be onions for breakfast and Christmas would be banned. Sounds awful.
  7. President Trump & the USA

    Might be worth checking out the original article from the WP. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/trump-offered-a-grieving-military-father-25000-in-a-call-but-didnt-follow-through/2017/10/18/8d4cbc8c-b43a-11e7-be94-fabb0f1e9ffb_story.html?hpid=hp_hp-top-table-main_goldstar-410pm%3Ahomepage%2Fstory&utm_term=.00ff5f49f7f9 It's balanced, accurate, and is merely reporting on the story. Here's the thing: The media are only reporting what the father said. That's their job. It's not "disgusting". As it turns out, what the father said turned out to be true. Trump promised a cheque of $25k and to set up a fund-raiser for his son. Neither has happened. The media actually has an obligation to report this story - and that's all they're doing. The WH response is pathetic.

    Good news. (Which is the lead story in the Guardian!) Bit embarrassing though that it's Merkel not May taking the initiative to sort this out for us!
  9. Next City Manager?

    maybe his Contract stipulates that every time a Premier League club makes a formal approach he gets a loyalty payment?
  10. Next City Manager?

    Hehe I’d completely forgotten about that game! It was a 10-man Hull City for most of the second half - but Nige kept five defenders on the pitch to secure a 0-0 draw. Golden days.
  11. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Not sure I can answer that without largely repeating what I’ve already said. let me ask you something different related to what you have said. If you can’t predict outcomes, do you feel that the USSR’s attempt to liberate Afghanistan from an ‘evil regime’ in the 1980s is justified by the same terms that you use to justify the US’ attempts to ‘liberate’ Vietnam and Iraq?
  12. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    "They took over military action from France"!! What?? I see you're fully paid up on the US lexicon to justify their foreign interventions. You'll be telling me next that they didn't "bomb" Vietnam, but dropped "freedom projectiles" onto the country. No. They invade and bomb. They bomb civillians. Millions of people die. Millions of people are made homeless. The consequences last for decades. Call it what it is. Don't use language to try and cushion yourself from the reality of what actually happens when the US/USSR decide to 'liberate' a country. NATO and the US are separate organisations. And that actually answers your question. We should intervene when the UN makes the decision to send in Nato. We should follow international law. We should follow the decisions of the international community. Unilateral action is always illegal and always has dire consequences for the 'liberated' country.
  13. Next City Manager?

    Probably not, but I think the Vichai is deluded if he reckons that somebody like Ancelotti would come to a club in the bottom 3. The Thais have always been starstruck by 'big name managers'. First Sven, then Claudio. They probably fancy Dyche though cos he seems a bit Pearson-esque in his manner and style, but without the weird episodes that you got with Pearson. He's be a great choice, and the fact that he still hasn't yet ruled himself out is positive...
  14. Next City Manager?

    I need to see a picture of his missus before jumping on the Dyche bandwagon. In reality he's probably just using us to get himself a pay rise at Burnley. However, as an English manager he might realise that none of the big clubs are likely to be interested in him... would love to see the "Welcome to the Market Leaders" tifo at his first home game in charge
