Tisdale to the Gas

I can see Rovers moving up the league under Tisdale, even though M.K. sacked him following promotion.

Mario Balotelli has held talks with Barnsley.
at 10:07 18 Nov 2020

Mario Balotelli has held talks with Championship strugglers Barnsley. The Italian, 30, is a free agent after having his contract with Bresica terminated over missed training sessions.

How long would you give him? Mind you, the Barnsley Bugle would have something to write about other than decay (or perhaps not).

To these new friends who have come in from the cold, aka the news pages, could I ever-so politely suggest that you think several times before employing such trenchant usernames as:
No Punches Pulled; The Way I see it; Truth revealed; No words minced; Hard facts etc, etc.
Better to let opinions fight their own corner - well that's what I think, anyway.

Not beating teams above us
at 09:37 3 Nov 2020

“I think every game is [a big test],” he said. [The Crewe game] was a test, every game we play is. The name and the stature of the club doesn’t really count, it’s what happens on the grass, that’s evident. You can be a big club in name but you have to play on the grass."

I know that managers resort to a sort of microphone corporate-speak when confronted with awkward stats such as our securing only 2 wins against the top ten last year, but it can't help if that's as far as they go with the players too. Many might choose to conclude that P.L. would play it straighter behind closed doors, but I somehow doubt that the constant drone of "taking each game as it comes" would galvanise a team that clearly has a problem when confronted with a tough fixture.

breaking the mould
at 09:33 27 Oct 2020

There are several examples of clubs around who have gone down a different route in terms of management structures and outside-the-box appointments. Liverpool's opponents, FC Midtjylland, are one such - apparently starting with a fiercly controversial merger of two clubs.

Brentford's different way and its relative success is well known. Bielsa apparently detained them for 12 hours in an interview while he set out the restructuring of football, after which they couldn't decide if he was "a genius or a madman".

Forest Green are something different, if not to everyone's taste. But they have brought something out of nothing, and instant old-fan dismissal of their antics as "a plastic club" suggests, perhaps, that one might even prefer just to carry on with grizzed Lone Ranger managers and their old ways till we hit the jackpot. Notts Forest have just about used up their chips on that particular gamble.

Town are no strangers to taking a different route. Sir Alf's ways bamboozled then led the world. SBR was a left-field choice at the time. Evans did not achieve a meteoric rise in the business world by sticking with what oldies told him was the tried and trusted route. Perhaps he might do better to consider ambition, drive and innovation in his football world, trusting to his business instinct, rather than allegedly relying on grizzled 'Arrys who will only ever hark back to what they know?

Quaner, Spence, Rowe, Wordsworth free agents

Not suggesting we revisit. Just thinking about the fact that these four were with us for some time mostly without breaking through. Even so, at various times, some said things like "there's a player in there somewhere" while more robust critics insisted that, if there was, then he was buried too deep to recover. While none was clearly Championship material, and perhaps our persistence with such players was already showing the writing on the wall for us, yet, of these, only Spence was mentioned in the worst player thread of a few days ago. They are still young enough to hope for an upturn in their career, yet, obviously, no manager sees it that way, unless perhaps they are setting their sights too high?
