John Percy, just reported that it looks like Shan until the end of the season with the club revisiting Jokanovic in the Summer.

I can smell the cheap from here  >:(

Dennis Wise been spotted

I've just seen our milkman by the ground as well but I doubt if he'll get the job.
Oh hang on a minute though!

I really do not understand it and it worries me that so many of our fans are like this.

Its all about opinions.
The fans who are shouting Shan's praises may not like your prefered candidate.
Who's right and who's wrong?

I think this appointment needs to be the 'hit the ground running' and play the 'pragmatic' way.  Its about results now.  Nothing more.  The players we currently have cannot play the way DM wanted to.  That was clear to see.

I'd go for Pearson and Shakespeare or Moyes with a view to getting us promoted.  If we do go up then they will be better suited to keeping us there.

If we fail to get promoted then appoint the likes of Neil, Monk or Jokanovic and get rid of the old guard and rebuild the team with a new style of play.

I'd give them the gig for the rest of this season plus next season as well.
We weren't considered good enough for Moyes a few years ago when his stock was high. if he gets the job here we will only be a stepping stone until something better comes along.
Plus he's a sweaty sock  8)

If they are considering bringing either of those two in to support Shan, then forget it! give SGM a call ,been there, seen that, done that.
Jenkins of course will not do that , not savvy enough.
I do understand the issue of not knowing which division we will be in next season, and the effect on the permanent position, and I am not suggesting Gary come back in that role , but if they are seriously considering Shakey or Appleton , then frankly they are not fit to lace SGM's boots

which begs the question why didn't they leave Darren Moore in position until the end of the season?

Shakespeare wouldn't be the manager though , he'd be a help to Shan I'd imagine .
Suspect it's the same old thing with SJ , money !

Another twist in our saga.
Shakey and Appleton?
It's a no from me  :(

Stopped listening about a year ago general dirge and full of know it alls like Alan the vile fan is he still around?

The problem is that I think the producers realise that these people are nuts but listeners like to hear them make prats of themselves. Bit like X Factor.

Yes, Alan is still around.
Never forget the time the vile drew Bradford in the semi final of the League Cup and that to$$er was that cock sure of the mighty vile winning he booked (and paid for his hotel) for the final.
Guess what?  :D

I used to prefer listening to Tom Ross’s phone in when he was on Xtra Am/Gold/Free etc

I used to like Rossie too.
I listen to WM, usually on the way home in the car.
Got to say I do like listening to the various views, I've been listening to it for some time now so I like to think that I can pull the wheat from the chaff.
As someone said they are very selective on the ones they let on air.
It's a mixture of balanced and extreme views, but hey it's entertainment.
Same as this board really if everybody agreed all the time there would be no point in it's existence.

We were 11 points behind the unwashed in 2002 at this same stage of the season (Mid March).
We then won 8 of the last 10 games and drew 2.
A similar feet is required again to stand any chance of automatic, plus we could do with a few hic-cups from the teams above

This thread is very quiet. Wonder what it would have been like if it was ISIS storming a church and killing 50.

I think every decent person from whatever religion would condemn this type of attack regardless of background.
To insinuate anything else is pointless and disrespectful to all posters on this site

While he hasn't set the world on fire, he's shown me enough to see he is a good player to have in the Championship. He's scored a couple and was unlucky not to get another 1, possibly 2 against Ipswich.

Personally I don't think he's cut out for the rough and tumble of the Championship,seems a bit light weight for whatever division he plays in.
Not keen on 50 50 balls at all is he, and tends to pull out of challenges

Always supported Darren Moore even though I never thought he should have been anywhere near the job to start with.
He had to go, and if he was still here would Edwards have started today.
Very brave decision to start with him today, he could also see it was time to give Harper a rest and drop Livermore.
I don't say that Shan is the right man for the job long term but he's the right man for now.

Love a bit of whataboutery...

For me the prosecution doesn't go far enough. A token gesture. I'm not RC by the way.

We're not talking about law and order, we're talking about a witch hunt which will make a lot of unsavoury people even more wealthy

How ironic that the government has caved in to public pressure and let the loony lawyers chase down soldiers that were sent to Northern Ireland as peace keepers, yet as part of the Good Friday agreement the terrorists, who they were their to defeat, were allowed to walk free.
It was a sad day indeed when those 13 people were shot on Bloody Sunday as they protested on the streets.
But was it any sadder when 21 people died and 180 were injured whilst they were having a drink in Birmingham, or 31 people blown to bits in Crossmaglen as they went about their lawful business?
We get worse in this country, we really do.

We should be making sacrifice to the footballing gods tonight hoping that Sheffield Utd and Leeds share the points tomorrow, and that Rotherham are scrapping at the bottom manage to take something off Narwich

Reading today's press releases and according to some we haven't even been in touch with Jokanovic

« on: March 14, 2019, 10:56:59 AM »
I've just renewed mine. Changed stands, decided to have a change so I'm going in the West Stand next season. At least I don't have to sit there looking at it thinking "that stand really lets our stadium down".

I'm sitting here now thinking "I hope we don't get a manager that sticks everyone behind the ball and bores us all season".

I'm in a bit of a moaning mood this morning so I think I'm maybe thinking a bit more negatively than I really should be.

Whatever, come first game of next season I'll be buzzing again, full of hope and anticipation. You'd think I'd have learned by now wouldn't you?  ;)

Flask and tartan blanket in hand as well?

I must be in a minority as I think he is a very good defender

I too have said, in other posts, that he's been one of our shining lights this season.
I think we will struggle to hold on to him next season whatever division we're playing in

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Rekeem Harper
« on: March 14, 2019, 08:46:26 AM »
Harper is a great prospect and that is the thing about football, different opinions, i actually thought Harper was average last night. He did a few good runs with the ball but when it didnt come off he tended to throw his arms in the air and sulk a bit when he should of perhaps let the ball go a bit sooner. i would keep him in the team for saturday though.

My feelings as well more or less, I'd also add that if he loses the ball it's not often he tries to win it back.

Kept us in the game last night with some very important saves.
Hope his improvement continues if we can stay focused and ditch the tippy tappy stuff playing out from the back.
Maybe he's more comfortable just being a goalkeeper instead of playing the sweeper roll as well.

If this report is true the board should get Moore back then all resign one by one.
What was the point in removing Moore from his duties then appointing an Academy coach as manager until the end of the season?


If Smith was the issue they should have just got rid of him

Maybe most football players (or most people at work, I agree with 17GD) are just happier/better performing with managers who are a bit more hands off on detail and trust them to make decisions on the pitch - look at ManU under Ole after Jose and his nitpicking, we were at our best in recent years with Hodgson who had a pretty basic system but seem to allow the players a fair bit of tactical responsibility on the pitch.  Back in the day, Willie used to sometimes pop over to the other wing for a few minutes for no particular reason, and the midfield would drift the other way to compensate, I don't recall there being "water bottle" conferences about it or a lot of managerial arm waving.

Willie was either doing a deal for a shed or organising his crate of Newcastle Brown Ale that's why he used to pop over to the other wing.
There was always a reason
