Even he must wake up in the morning look in the mirror and just mouth the words:

"How?"

Re: English Football 2015-16

But Ramsey was the dream manager! Surely it's Sherwood time

Fernandes wants to win now, is a bad combination of impulsive/gullible, and the manager who was around during the club's only recent successful spell is going to be around the clubhouse every day.

I have a feeling this will not end well for all parties involved.
Saw this one coming!

Re: English Football 2015-16

top 4 much easier, they have 28 games to catch up 9 pts on spuds and pool

cl forget it, europa league is hard because there are about 23 two legged KO rounds so its a giant variancefest

Re: English Football 2015-16

Warnock is terrible managing millionaires in the Premier League. Below that he is quite good at squeezing talent out of lower level teams, and has seven promotions to back that up.

However, this is not a good situation. There are so many built in excuses-- he didn't pick these players, the team is struggling, and he will not be looking to develop the young players in any way.

I question how "interim" this appointment is.

Re: English Football 2015-16

I'm guessing Shergoat is going to put himself in line for this job.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Bit offtopic. Any of you guys on PS4 and would like to play a FIFA16 league during the intl. break? Already have 4-5 people interested from the VideoGames subforum and our very own cruizn! Thought it might add to the community experience

If we get 8+players we'll just play a KO tournament, but the league format is going to happen as well

lol?

There's probably 10 teams in The Championship who are more likely to be promoted in the next 2 seasons.

Re: English Football 2015-16

I don't see any other way Shergoat is coming back to the EPL after that Villa performance

I wasn't commenting on QPR's chances as I'm rather uninformed about the Championship

Re: English Football 2015-16

Would also like to point out that nine managers have lost their job in the Championship since May. Neil Lennon was not one of them. He has won once in 15 games.

Re: English Football 2015-16

speaking of managers, why do pool/spurs not play their reserves in the EL when they only have 4-5% equity anyway? especially for spurs who have such a thin squad it seems really obvious to tank the EL to avoid injuries/fatigue to key players.

I think Poch goes by his eye test and rests players accordingly.
