    I can only assume my picture of women enjoying her morning coffee was deemed to explicit for this thread 😔
  2. Nigel Pearson Twitter Rumour

    Hmmmmm... the same guy posted RIP Dale Winton with a picture of Michael Barrymore. There were no apparent signs of that being ironic.

    I can only imagine Rudkin hasn’t explained the concept of Brexit to them yet then.

    He’s not the messiah, he’s a very naughty boy

  7. Absolute cvnts of our time Pt.MXXVI

    And to add one final point... ... it would have been quite easy to accept some other form of acknowledging gesture - like a bow, nod, or curtesy. Yeah, the non-shaking hands thing is a crap Muslim tradition that needs moving forward with the times, but this women isn’t solely at fault for that, just let people be unless they’re causing a massive issue.

    Okay... but why place it in this thread? Is she an ‘absolute ****’ for not shaking hands with someone?

    Is a handshake even the traditional French greeting?

    So you’ll be voting for them then? HA!

    Well at least we could have a new centerist party to look forward to in the near future 🙄

    Just shows the power of publically deporting black people.
  13. **New** Puel In or Out - A simple Poll Mk 2

    Shakes ranks above Puel purely for the Liverpool and Seville home games.

    No! Early summer is the best time to get a manger in - for one you have more of a selection, managers at clubs are more open to moves, especially given the exciting opportunity we have for any manager. Secondly, getting a manger in before pre-season enables them to set pre-season, drill the team on what they want tactically, properly assess squad and address signing and departure issues, etc, etc - which gives them the best chance of being successful. Now I was one of a few that said they weren’t sure about Shakes towards the end of his caretaker season. I saw signs that he struggled making the correct decisions under pressure and just felt he wasn’t suited to the managers job. Was this hunch proved right? You could say so - when I saw the fixtures released, I knew he was all but doomed given the tough away games he faced, yet it’s amazing to think that some alternative decisions in that opening Arsenal game where we’d played better than I had expected and actually completed could have brought us an opening day win and things might have turned out differently. But they didn’t... Appleton then showed what can be achieved through slight managerial tweaks (he’s much more of a manager figure than Shakey ever was) and a buzz was established that when appointed, Puel was able to carry for a while. But the owners will have witnessed all this and I imagine learned from the Shakey situation - if it doesn’t feel right, don’t persist blindly hoping something will miraculously change - especially given the risk that with a bad start any comfortable mid table side in the division can suddenly see themselves starring at relegation (think West Brom, Southampton, Stoke, West Ham, Swansea, Everton).
  15. **New** Puel In or Out - A simple Poll Mk 2

    I’ve known plenty of season ticket holders that know bugger all about football and the intricacies of the game. Just watching football doesn’t make you an expert. How about actually playing the game yourself? To a reasonable level for a decent period of time, even if that’s still amateur standard? And in terms of Puel - can you not see the warning signs the players are giving you? Elementary mistakes are a sign of a bad manager - if players minds are elsewhere and not focused that could be down to the manager. Dressing room unrest is a sign of a bad manager - the manager is ultimately responsible for setting the right atmosphere Disappointing 1st half / 2nd half displays is a sign of a bad manager - a managers biggest impact on a game is just before and at half time. Tactical inflexibility is a sign of a bad manager - there is no point in persisting with a style of play if you don’t have the players to play that way. Football has become ever more so a results first business. There are many more signs that should also concern you about what’s happening - but none more so than the fact we had good base positions in cup quarterfinals where Puel failed to show decisive tactical acumen when it mattered. Those Man City and Chelsea sides were beatable on the day with the right approach - that he failed to show up Big when the occasion demanded tell me that all the time and budget in the world would still leave Puel short with us. My hunch - departs with 2 games to go.
