    Haha, yeah I'm sure Keane going back to being involved in club management is going to be positive, LOL

    Hopefully he does a really good job and ends up back at Ipswich.

    He's only the third worst manager in my living memory

    FFS Forest! As much as I love O'Neil (History FC), it does seem somewhat of a backwards step from what we just let go.

    Ah well, if we don't have a new manager (or 2) once a season, it's just not the same.

    Not sure about the links with Keane either - hoping that doesn't materialise.

    For context, we've only had eleven in that time. So it's pretty good. The other two happened after him, and do NOT include Mick McCarthy

    No, since the 80s we've had 11 managers. I'm not including caretakers.

    Paul Hurst
    Paul Jewell
    Roy Keane

    Bottom 3. Keane being least shit of the 3

    I just realised we've had the same number of managers since the turn of the millennium aa we had in the whole of the 20th century.

    We've had 3 managers in the past year (not including caretakers). Our first three managers spanned 27 years between them. And we only lost our 3rd manager to win the World Cup for England (although OBVIOUSLY West Ham won it).

    Fuck modern football

    He's beyond anal with this stuff. This is a bit of an overreaction. Apparently he had a scout watching us train.

    The scouting notes was just LOL in 72 point font

    I thought our first comeback was decent enough, but we got schooled by Pizza Hut! Fine work.

    Don't know what the water in Villa is laced with, but it seems to fuck up every manager there!

    Yeah, it is very strange. All that positivity after the first few results and then Christmas just always seems to break things. Not sure why.

    I think the theory that a bunch of players are lacking motivation because they are going to be surplus to requirements in the summer may be part of it.

    Past that, Chester is playing with a long term injury and Bruce left the defence in disarray.

    Hopefully Smith concentrates on getting the youngsters playing and the VP crowd don't get on their backs. Sounds like the fans were a bit toxic today.

    We were fucking dreadful today. Waiting for the milkybar kid to come and gloat. We made nothing in the final third and Stoke had their defensive shape nailed on. We had most of the ball and more shots, but it was mostly speculative 30 yard attempts since we couldn’t break through the wall.

    Properly terrible dive by Stoke in the first half though. I wonder if that will be deemed to be “in good faith” according to the EFL.

    Sounds like we continue to be shite. 23 shots today, two goals. They obviously don't train shooting at Bodymoor.

    That penalty at Villa Park - what a fucking joke. Keith Stroud is the worst ref
  • Deleted user 26 January 2019 17:43:41
    Can't believe we've won 4 on the bounce. We won't make the playoffs but it was a fine pasting of Hull today.

    Official Prediction:

    West Brom and Norwich to finish top 2. We drop to 3rd, and lose the playoff final to Frank Lampard’s Derby County in a perfect conclusion of The Narrative.
