    It's also bullshit, he's the 16th and we didn't go professional until 1936.

    Still not bad, I guess. Considering some fucking short term aberrations are in there (Jackie Millburn, Roy Keane, Paul Jewell)

    That's modern football I guess. We've had 5 in the past 12 years which is pretty much "doing a Leeds" for us

    Yeah even still, that's some going. Especially when the culture at some clubs seems to be recycle managers at the end of a season, or go through 2 or 3 a year.

    Rowett did an hour phone in on Radio Stoke last night. Spoke really well and handled questions pretty well. Talks about wanting us to play an attacking game and that we're still quite short of where we need to be, with both signings and fitness. Proof is in the pudding I suppose.

    Since Billy 'Fucking' Davies took us up in 2008, we have had nine full time managers, ten if you count the half season wassall was caretaker, 14 if you count everyone who has sat in the dugout for a league match.

    We are no Leeds but, Christ, that's a lot of compo being paid out.

    I kinda wanna see a club do a season of stick or twist.

    You sack the manager after a loss, see what the end product will be.

    I'd love to say it was a deeply ingrained culture where we like to promote stability at the top, but I suspect it's only partly that and mostly that we can't afford to do compo payments.

    Even Mick got to the end of his contract, and the atmosphere was absolute poison most of last season, and our fans are probably some of the more genteel (read: happy to put up with shit) in the country.

    It must be a bit attractive to applicants though, the assumption that, if they were successful, they'd likely get more than a fair crack at it

    He took one look at Bruce and his tactics and thought fuck that.

    Apparently we wanted to see Grealish leave first before agreeing to send him.

    @H1ggyLTD that sounds highly unlikely. Surely playing alongside Grealish and fighting for a place is what loan deals are about.

    Preview of the new season. Don't know why we're tipped as favorites everywhere. It's almost as if the last 2 years never happened.

    Fuck me, that's a depressing article. Not so much the Nostradamus like prediction that we'll struggle, but the reminder that Mick let Jack Marriott's youth contract expire without giving him much of a chance.

    Still, we got Frank Nouble. If anyone knows who that is, you'll be astonished to learn that we thought he might be a footballer

    I've heard of Frank Nouble. He's related to George Weah like Ali Dia.

    It's a tough watch. He's asking us to play it out from the back with at least one useless, gaffe prone cunt in defence.

    It's fine. He will passion it out from defence.

    I can't believe those doss cunts down the road have spent 21m. We have like the third highest summer net spend with like 6m and five of that was mugging Peterborough for Marriott.
