    If GM goes he’ll probably promote Cliff Byrne to manager.

    I hope not, I liken Cliff Byrne to the character 'Dave Dodds' played by Bradley Walsh in the film Mike Bassett England manager, he was the team coach and a 'yes man', in fact we would be better off just bringing in Bradley Walsh.

    I’ve said once before and didn’t think I’d repeat it, but the Allams DO deserve credit for the players they’ve brought in, which can only be construed as an effort to get out of Lge 1 in an upward fashion.
    No doubt it helps them financially in the Championship, who knows.
    Unfortunately they have not pulled a rabbit out of the hat like Silva or Slutsky, and got this dud.
    They can and need to change that as a matter of urgency. And if it’s true that it’s Ehabs desire to play 433, then that needs changing ASAP.
    But no one tells them how to run their business ( into the ground ).

    And another thing.
    The magnificent Tom Huddlestone is on Sportstalk tonight apparently.
    Is in not beyond the realms of Ehab’s intelligence, to see someone with experience like TH who could do a short term role for the team/club like Emlyn Hughes did all those years ago?
    Because for ****s sake if a journeyman like Bostock ( superb goal against Swansea ) can run us ragged for Donny, Thud would be in clover in this division.

    He's seen the 92% out vote and can smell blood. He'll have had the nod from above before putting that out. I'm beginning to like this Cooper lad.

    Any reporter who can moonlight as a Woody Allen look alike impersonator will do for me.

    How many players would we have to dispose of to make way for Tom Huddlestone to bring him in and stay within our salary cap?

    You see you had me then until you mentioned pulling rabbits out of the hat .. the two you mention slutz .. nice bloke but not a clue how to defend and was left seriously wanting .. silva .. great attacking philosophy but again not a clue how to defend a set piece .. In fact if you look at Ehabs choices of manager they have been fkn dire .. the only decent ones we have had under his tenure he managed to p1ss them both off enough they left! And one of those was appointed by his dad ! The man is as clueless as the numpty currently assigned to be head coach/manager

    I like the coconut one. I was at college with a girl who was a Basset on one side and a descendant of Cecil Rhodes on the other side. She wasn’t close enough to either side to gain any benefit.
