    Will we go up

    Should be a third option of fucking no chance the way the club is ran. And by that I mean the constant turnaround of playing staff. If ran a business like that you wouldn't have one after about 3 years

    Martin O Neill

    Lol, I was trying to think of the name as I was going to comment exactly the same. Welcome back Deano.

    Forest v Derby

    Wankie Lampard proper schooled by MoN last night. He didn't have a clue how to change things up and compete. Apart from very few moments, we battered them last night and they didn't have a clue what to do about it.

    Surprised there's not more opinion on this tbh. It could be a car crash, it might work, he might piss off in a month. The only thing on this that I'd love to know is that we all know what Keane is like i.e. perfectionist, wants things done the right way etc. So I'm kind of hoping that he's been given these assurances. I really can't see him coming if he wasn't happy with the setup etc?

    I agree mostly there Chas but it could be that the new manager might possibly get more of a tune out of Dias and Goncalves, bearing in mind how defensive AK was. Not saying MoN will but you never know. I also think that sometime bringing a new manager in can make a difference and can make players better, however, again not sure about MoN being able to do that or indeed still have enough weight in the game to attract quality (at our level) players. At least AK had decent connections. We'll see I guess and I'm hoping MoN can re-produce what he did at Villa and Leicester but that's a while ago now.

    Taylor suggesting Tyrone Mings too but WBA and Villa might be in front of us for him

    Agree. His reign at Villa was tarred really because Lerner didn't give him the funds that he was promised so he walked out. Bad timing only a few days prior to the season starting but I think Villa fans do hold MON in high regard and are grateful for his time at the club. He played some really good stuff with them and Leicester. I'm happy he's here and will give him time but I'm hoping beyond hope that he hasn't been scarred to much by his RoI experience and can get back to his philosophy and style before he was in that job. Hopefully as well, he'll get a reaction from the players and we get a few wins which may build momentum.

    No idea how this is going to go. Agree with all of the above really, I'm slightly underwhelmed but then again his track record at club level apart from sunderland is good but not brilliant. May be just what we need but I think he's one of these guys that needs time to gel a team. Don't know how that's going to go. He'll get my backing for sure and fingers crossed the players respond. He did play decent football at Villa and Leicester, so hopefully we might have something decent to watch.

    Must admit, I don't know a lot about him but bloody hell, looking at his wikipedia page he has quite an impressive recent managerial career at Monaco. On 10 June 2014, Jardim was appointed at AS Monaco FC for two seasons plus the option for another.[15] He led the team to the third place in Ligue 1 in his first year, repeating the feat in 2015–16; in between, on 12 May 2015, he signed a contract extension until 2019. In the 2016–17 campaign, displaying attacking football performed by several young players,[18] Jardim coached the club to its first national championship in 17 years.[19] The side also reached the semi-finals in both the UEFA Champions League and the Coupe de France, losing the final of the Coupe de la Ligue to Paris Saint-Germain FC;[20][21][22] in early June 2017, he agreed to a new deal until 2020.[23] On 11 October 2018, following a poor start to the season which included two losses in as many Champions League group stage matches, Jardim was sacked

    I do agree with you to some degree Rick but he's not been sacked has he, he's asked to be released from his contract. Ordinarily I'd agree with the response that I'm expecting i.e. that's just the official line etc, however he's got form for doing it. He didn't like the new structure happening etc and I can understand him being pissed off and it's his decision if he doesn't want to be part of it any more. That's up to him, the club backed him and then decided that they wanted to change the structure which he didn't like and he's gone. I actually think that the club have stuck with him for several more games than expected due to a lot of fans not wanting him to go. I think fan power kept him in his job but in the end he's decided it wasn't for him. I'm all for stability and would have like him and the club to get along and him stay but they couldn't do that and he's out.

    Karanka has gone

    Pity Dean Smith was at Villa, I'd have loved him here. Christ knows who we'll end up with. I'd like Jokaonvic but he turned Stoke down (maybe he knew SK was going), so may not be bothered about us. Could end up being a Montanier like appointment where no one knows who the fuck he is, we think he's progressive and he turns out to be utter shite. I am hoping that for once, the club have a proper plan in place rather than the usual scatter-gun approach.
  13. His kicking is terrible though, we can't keep giving it away so often. We were lucky several times that we weren't punished for it.
  14. Yep and if we were just going to go for mid table stability then I think he'd be fine but to quote someone a few years back, if we're serious about promotion we can't afford to keep giving the ball away like he does.
  15. Pant's kicking is going to cost us. Fuck me he's worse than Smith at it and that's saying something. For such an experienced player, he really gives you no confidence at all. The defenders must shit themselves in front of him.
