The elephant in the room though is our current form - he may still be top of the owner's list for now, but i doubt they will give him a free pass on the rest of the season and be satisfied to see us to stutter along and end up finishing 11th again

FWIW I don't think it will be Ashton as our CEO
at 10:07 11 Apr 2021

Just wondering, if Ashton is all over the signing of players, which signings that Bristol City fans would put forward as an example of someone who didn't work out or the manager didn't want

Difficult to tell from afar, the one signing that springs to mind as a possibility is Lansbury

Norwich future.. could be interesting
at 10:03 10 Apr 2021

They surely can't do the same as last season again, turn up in the Prem, take the money and make next to no effort to stay up. They need to take some chances this time, although i reckon they will lose some more players this summer - Aarons, Buendia for starters

So This Season
at 00:12 8 Apr 2021

Is there any chance the takeover can have an impact on this season?

We can't change the playing squad and players coming to the end of their contracts may now be feeling even more insecure

If PC wants Leam Richardson as his assistant, that's more likely to happen in the summer

So aside from getting some things behind the scenes sorted (which will be a major plus point) are we expecting anything to change during what's left of the season?

Top HK Indian establishments supposedly hire chefs who learnt their trade in London. Never found a comparible indian restaurant outside the UK

Mick's gonna make the play-offs with Cardiff
at 09:53 6 Apr 2021

Mick seems to have condensed the three years of good times into a single month at Cardiff and they are already at the early stage of an acrimonious divorce

I think that Neville and to a certain extent Carragher are far better than others. Watching Arsenal play is tough going when Alan Smith does the commentary.

The problem for me as you say, is watching too much football, especially since Covid when every game seems to be pointless and a training exercise. No crowds to urge the players forwards means endless playing around at the back

The constant churn of fixtures doesn't help either, as much as I like evening games i would be quite hapy with a schedule of 1 league game a week for teams. Have the cup competitions as mid week games only

I have even stopped watching Match of the Day this season - it's fatigue. I enjoy the 2 week break from football that an international week brings

Just listened to Paul Cook post match interview again
at 16:41 28 Mar 2021

The only player we have who i think who can drive the team on is Downes. Ideally it should come from midfield, and I don't see anyone else capable of doing so amongst our midfielders

Friday music time. Most underrated bands.

I liked them eventually. The problem with Flock of Seagulls was that they made a splash in the US before the UK, so the music press were against them from the start as some kind of manufactured (for the American market) sell outs. See also the Fixx

I agree, but also why is ME firing the manager and therefore having to pay compensation, if a deal is imminent and it would become someone else's problem / expense?

Either

A the deal is imminent and the new owners have said they want PC in ASAP while the final details are sorted
B the deal is nowhere near imminent but ME realised if PL remained the takeover interest may cool if we start losing again
C Some other explanation

I know the rumours were that Cook was seen as part of the takeover, but what if we hire a manager and the new owners want someone else? Stick with Gill/Klug as the interim option?

Colchester have done well ...

And replaced by a manager who had previously managed at Leiston and Maldon & Tiptree. Covid obviously affected the finances, but they are paying for taking the cheap option on a replacement

Could we set an unwelcome English football record?
at 11:33 1 Feb 2021

I think that says more about how well we did under SBR - consistently overachieved maybe

English clubs to have won a European trophy is a small group

I'd look at how clubs like Wolves and Burnley were struggling in division 4 at times in the 80's after being top English clubs - but before Euro competition

Question for you...

Is this a guess the missing word contest

Would you BELIEVE that a higher league club - No
Would you PREFER that a higher league club - Yes

Definitely agree that a preferred style of play requires some success on the pitch along the way. You would hope that ME isn't actually prepared to wait 5 years until we see these green shoots blossoming.
