|Evans: Webster Fee Will Be Reinvested|
I see the 'told you so' brigade are racing each other to get the premeptive strikes in
I'll wait and see what happens I think …..
|Skuse: We're All Behind the Gaffer|
I'm right behind my boss too ..... until he's not my boss and then I'll be right behind my next boss
yawn ... is it over yet
|Ipswich Town 0-3 Derby County - Match Report|
Just a thought, when MM gets us relegated this year does he have to pay back the bonus he got for 'saving' us in his first half year?
Tbh I don't lay all of the blame at his door, he doesn't help himself with his arrogant attitude towards fans, but it's the owner that's the problem.
This once greatly respected club is being run worse than a pub team
|Leeds Midfielder Close to Joining Blues on Loan|
Just a general thought, if MM is going in Summer which looks likely then maybe loans to stabilise the ship are the way to go.
New manager wouldn't then have to inherit any more of MM signings and could effect 2017/18 squad themselves
|Where Are We Now?|
That is the best, rational piece I have seen on here in a while. Agreed the problem is the owner and his apparent use of the club as a tax write off whilst hiding behind FFP and refusing to invest.
I'd also add into the mix we have been so overly reliant of 'emergency' loans in recent years that there is nowhere to move with the current injury levels & decimated squad without investing , and more than ever January is a sellers market.
I do think MM has had his time, certainly he has lost the fans but I think more importantly he has lost himself .. he seems clueless as to how to change it. His 'proper blokes' and 'different class characters' were just shown to he a rudderless ship with no idea ... most appear grateful to be pulling a wage from football still
Chambers and Berra without doubt have been good for us but they also seem to be at the end of their shelf life, Douglas was done before he got here!
As for your question when should we change manager, I'd say sooner rather than later. the atmosphere in PR is bad on a good day, at the moment its caustic
Just my opinion, but to be honest we could do worse than Butcher til the end of the season, he would unite the fans behind the club and also play the kids who deserve to be playing.... whether he'd want it or not is another question
Maybe then with a view to then bringing in a young coach to work with him who will be hungry and passionate ...2 things I fear MM is not anymore
Taking Rickoshay2's point regarding the Keane appointment and increased press coverage showing the Marcus Evans group name, (remember 'Roy Keane's Ipswich' were we never off Sky Sports News?) I wonder how he feels about being aligned to the shambles on the Beeb Tuesday night, or maybe there really is no such thing as bad press?
whatever happens with the manager, the owner is going nowhere, he has realised the Premier League is out of reach (sorry, but it is!) with the resources he is prepared to put in so hides behind FFP and keeps his tax bill low. The problem is as the product becomes less inviting ticket revenue drops, and so we fall further behind and soon our main concern as fans will be which 3 teams are worse than us to prevent the fall into League 1
|Blues and Derby Linked With Watford Striker|
Calm down all, it says linked with.
Basically it's common knowledge we need a striker and so lazy journalism at its best has us linked with every deal that might happen
|Daggers Striker Hawkins Linked|
1) We need signings not loans
2) We need to look long term not short
So Hawkins and Ward yes please , Woodrow sorry no thanks
|Town Linked With Loan Move for Fulham Striker|
Time to face facts, owner has always been clueless no one will buy the current level of debt off of him so we are stuck with him
Current one trick pony manager cannot/will not play anything other than defensive approach but every other manager has now worked out his one trick
Murph somehow managed one good season in spite of everything, but without him we are not even one dimensional
Now is the time /season to blood the new generation but overrated 'experienced' favourites remain 'a different class' and seemingly undroppable
Evans/Milne/McCarthy appear not to know the definition of insanity .....doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results
In short we're in for a long painful few months, I just hope there are 3 teams worse than us come the season's end
|Hunt and Hyam Miss Bolton Trip|
I'd Skuse scores then Bolton should immediately walk off the pitch.... It really isn't going to be their day!
|A Class Apart|
How about the club paying for a hosted visit? Would be great press ....
