Good luck to him and I wish him well wherever he ends up.
|West Ham in Portman Road Friendly Talks|
In a few years time after we’ve won the Champions League, the World club trophy and broken our transfer record by 180 000 000. I think we should contact Lazio then tell when they return the call blow a massive raspberry down the phone.
Then invite Roma instead.
|Town to Play Friendly at Braintree|
Playing against a hardworking non-league and L2 team will be a good workout for what may well be a much younger team next season.
|Bialkowski in Provisional Poland World Cup Squad|
Great keeper and I hope he goes to the World Cup
Is it true that Bart isn’t held in high regard by polish fans? I find this hard to believe but pretty sure posted that here - or possibly the forum.
|Evans Interview Released Tomorrow|
The phrase ‘try something different’ suggests that the new appointment may well be a tad leftfield or a new approach in managerial setup which I have no idea about.
But it all depends on what ME means by ‘something different’ as that phrase is open to interpretation.
Either way it does seem that ME has something in mind and isn’t simply pointing blindly in the dark.
I hate being cynical but I’ll be very surprised if anything major will be announced and it’ll all be sound bites and PR. Hope I’m wrong.
|Pompey Boss Jackett Linked With Town|
Be a safe and steady appointment. To be absolutely honest I have no idea what his style of football is as he’s a manager who has completely passed me by.
|Knudsen: I Don't Like the Way Fans Treated Mick|
He has a point and it’s a point which he has made before. But if someone asked him a question then he has a right to answer it honestly.
Be interesting to see if Mick makes a bid for him, as well as Skuse etc, if he finds himself at a championship club.
|Gerrard Linked With Blues Job|
If there has been ‘significant interest’ then maybe the next manager/head coach will be a bit leftfield rather than a manager who has been round the block many times before.
|Smith Recalled From Chelmsford Loan and in Squad Travelling to Forest|
To be fair to Alan Hansen his comment regarding kids would usually be right. It’s just that at that moment Man U had an exceptional number of outstanding young players.
Be good to see how good Chris Smith is. I doubt if Klug would have recalled him if he did not rate him at all.
|McCarthy: Ex-Blues Striker Marriott Was Disgraceful Pre-Season Prior to Town Exit|
Marriott is yet to play at a higher level than the championship- who knows if he can in the PL.
MM made a judgement call on whether or not to keep Marriott - that’s what managers are paid to do. You can’t keep every player just on the basis that they’ll suddenly become better at some point. Dropping down leagues probably helped Marriott give him a much needed kick up the arse.
Every manager has probably let players go who have all went on to have good careers.
Think some of the comments are a bit ludicrous-
|Knudsen: McCarthy Leaving Has Effect on My Future|
Some of the comments on here are a tad cruel and unnecessary. Ok not the best ever defender we’ve ever had but not the worst. And definitely a championship standard player.
He always gives 100% and always will - think people should be a bit more respectful.
|Smith Signs New Contract|
It’s strange how football changes. Certainly in the 1990s if a player was twenty and hadn’t really made any first team appearances then he would almost certainly leave the club. Players seem to develop later now.
Well done on winning a new contact.
|Lincoln Boss Plays Down Town Link|
Being young doesn’t always mean hunger or being tactical innovation.
For me, for what’s its worth, I’d like to see Warburton or Tarricco as a more leftfield appointment.
