O'Driscoll didnt get "fucked off" he was on a temp contract and Crawley snapped him up.

Im well pleased with his appointment. Gets his tema playign very good football, shrwed with money, knows the team, and knwos what we need. Very good track record so he ticks all the boxes for me.

Getting abig name manager could of killed us with pressure just like the McLaren appointment did.

McDermott, Lambert and Rodgers werent exactly big name managers until the past 2 seasons were they?

and 3+mill for Gunter is great business

hate to say it, but i reckon it's a good appointment too. could have gone the way leicester did and appointed a 'big' name like we did with sven. that didn't work out. always rated o'driscoll, did wonders at doncaster on a shoe string budget. going to be interesting to see who you bring in, you need a fair few players i think.

he will do fuck all but get you just above mid table and then be sacked.
stop being divvs and pretending its fucking good business when you coud of and should of got thick nick with all his experience at making shit good.
if he does a lambert or rodgers the cucumber will be out. blokes a fucking 3rd division manager.
oh and for the record, shrewd business is buying a prem player for 3 million, not selling youre best one to the prem. thats unshrewd, thats no ambition shit right thurr.

This season maybe just above midtable only down to the fact we have 14 players, and only 3 friendlies lined up.

It is definately shrewd business, hes not our best player and has been off form for the last 6 months of the season. Kieron Freeman will step into his shoes and could well end up better. We signed himf or 2mill, so a 1mill plus profit is pretty good.

Solid manager, get us playing good football, and the players love him.

Suggesting Mick McCarthy. Laughing out loud

A mediocre manager if there ever was one, and plays dull as fuck football in the process. His record isn't exactly great, took him a fair few years to get Wolves out of that division.

he would of got them out, he knows how to do it and has done it.
same as allardyce, same as warnock.
anyway, im not bothering to talk to people who know fuck all about football anymore. its a pointless excercise. Smiling
o'driscoll is being lined up to take over from roy or saf. see we can all talk like tards, boring innit.

I hear there's cameras all over Elland Road at the moment, hope it's happening, doubt it though, it's time for that Chelsea cunt to fuck off

He's the worst manager I have ever experienced. I'd rather watch nice football in the Championship for a few seasons than scrape an ugly promotion and ultimately embarrass yourself in the Prem.

id have ian huntley as my manager for a season if it meant getting into the best league on the planet.
its fucking amazing up here, and i will go to my grave a happy man knowing i will never have to not be a part of it and back in that cloggers league that nobody really gives two fucks about.
the difference is humungous.
fuck good football, get amongst the elite playing shitty stuff and then worry about it. like we did with warnock, used him and abused him.

2004-2005 was a great year. Being a season ticket holder was even better. We drew with United and arsenal at home. Beat a strong liverpool side at home as well as beating the yids 3-0 too. At the time we were just living the moments, but only realise how special they were when you're stuck in this shitty league for so long

The young lad who just moved from Cov to Newcastle put this up on his fb today. Obviously English isn't his strong point.

Don't think he was much cop for Coventry or Newcastle in the Championship, never scored more than 10 goals a season in that league. £3 million was silly money for him.
