I'm not surprised we can't find many British coaches to manage the country
at 22:25 7 Apr 2015

They're all so pragmatic, tried and trusted British players immediately replace the foreign lads as soon as they're appointed and it doesn't always serve them better. I think in the Championship its important to get a mix, but British managers almost feel intimidated by any foreign player that has a bit of 'x factor'.

They go back to this rigid, grind out results idea constantly. Carles Gil is the reason I write this but its expands to a general point. He looked a real talent when he first joined Villa now all of a sudden he isn't even in the squad. Its as if we haven't a clue how to further develop these type of players.

Managers like a Hodgson get results but in major competitions they struggle because they don't have that instinct of how to change games using unique systems and allowing players to play with a real flair and freedom.

Fairly happy with a point in the end but we should of kept Sears on
at 19:16 3 Apr 2015

He was an outlet against a pretty slow and average defence, the ball was only going to keep coming back with two big strikers up there.

Derby falling?

Suffering a real down turn in form, they need Martin back as soon as possible, his absence has shown how important he is to them.

The annoying thing about today and most of our other defeats...
at 18:52 1 Mar 2015

Is that we've not been outplayed in any of the games really. Its just been a case of can the opposition stand up to us physically and then sneak one somewhere during the game. No individual or team has really put us to the sword or had us under the cosh for large spells.

The Derby home game was similar to today, as was the other fixture against Norwich. I'm sat after the game thinking, was that it? Is that all they had to do? I think sometimes we make things to much of a battle rather than letting the shackles off when playing the higher sides in the league.

We're doing well mind you and sure there will be twists and turns to come before the seasons out.

I can see Norwich being in the top 2 come the end of the season..
at 19:11 23 Feb 2015

I hope they don't (unless we go up maybe), but good squad, momentum and bar maybe Derby those above are inconsistent. I don't fear us playing them at all, we're more than capable of getting a result and feel we gave them too much respect last time out. People won't like this opinion but am being honest.

Mark Warburton rumours...
at 21:57 14 Feb 2015

If reports are true, he's been pushed out of Brentford and they've been in talks with Rayo Vallecano's manager. I know these kind of things shouldn't surprise us in football nowadays but its disgusting if this is correct. Apparently he was woken at 6am to be told about the news.

He seems a likeable bloke who has not only got a team promoted, but has also got them into the top 6 positions on a fairly small budget, surpassing all expectations.

He's also played watchable football in the process. I hope nothing comes from it but sure he wouldn't struggle to find a club if he does end up leaving.

I know its late but a couple of things about the Millwall game I found strange
at 22:10 23 Jan 2015

Forgot to post them at the time

Teenage centre half Sid Nelson was captain for Millwall on what I believe was only his fourth appearance? Also, Holloway said his side couldn't deal with the long balls and they have Shittu sitting on the bench?
