Then maybe he shouldn't insult our fans by constantly talking rubbish and saying certain players aren't anywhere near good enough, only to be proven wrong by their performances, i.e. Varela tonight.

He's got a lot to answer for regarding leaving Varela out in the cold for so long when he's been fit !   >:(

Nothing of this heard from the Brummie ?
If we lose to Vile then the gloves will be off for him !

I guess it obviously wasn't that loud but it was loud enough.

The longer Irvine stays the worse they will become.

The last time we scored a goal from open play was eight games ago.

If you're saying Downing was in charge during that time, and saying that period was so terrible, then I presume you're in favour of him being sacked?

Well no as i've repeatedly said the club has problems far deeper than the manager. There's no point sacking Irvine only to have Downing as caretaker for the next 7 weeks before we get Dave Jones in as manager.

Our last 3 appointments have taken progressively longer and all over a month. It's pretty clear pretty much no one with credibility applies for the Albion job - Irvine didn't either, we approached him.

The absolute best we could dream of is Chris Hughton who plays pretty the same as Irvine. And even then I imagine he'd probably reject the constraints we'd make him be under. Literally the only people who want this job are those who's reputation is at rock bottom, or those who have no experience.

And before you say it couldn't get worse than Irvine, consider the club highly rates Michael Appleton as a coach.

Pepe mel has been a dam site more successful than Ted in his career

At one point he went through 7 clubs in 5 years. He's really, really not that good. Maybe we should get Alex McLeish who's also managed the odd good season in his career.

He was doomed from the start, he will never be accepted. Do the decent thing somebody

He had quite an easy ride as fans, despite total disbelief when he was appointed, for his first three months or so as we assessed where we mighty go under him. An alarming November has seen the worst fears emerge and, as he has not earnt any previous plus points with the support, a rapid disintegration of his position as predictably taken place...........

Absolutely shocking. Clarke got sacked on the back of four losses. Pull that trigger Jeremy

No, he's not our head coach. He's not to blame for having to take over from an incompetent head coach.

Any prospective manager we do hire should be allowed however to decide their own coaching staff and it should be on them if they want Downing as part of that. Not just sacking him for the sake of it.

In fact, that was Anichebe's headed goal against Palace which was from a corner, so I think it's eight. I'll go back and correct it.

I'm nearer the front of the Brummie and I heard what Liam describes. For me he deserves all he gets. This is just a stage in the process, the taking the **** stage. The next one is audible vehemous Irvine Out chants.

He also showed tonight he has no professional integrity. Bowing to fan pressure as he was about to bring Samaras on. Clarke did something similar with Odemwingie but this was far worse as there were no extenuating circumstances.

How can he keep playing Wisdom at right back over Gamboa? We were desperate for some width on the right, Mulumbu was doing his nut in with Wisdom playing square all the time.

So many obvious team selections that are required:

1) Valera needs a run wide left
2) Gamboa should be the first choice right back
3) Dawson needs to be dropped for McAuley
4) Mulumbu should play in the middle alongside Morrison / Gardner or Yacob
5) Anichebe is a sub, as is Dorrans and Brunt
6) Samaras should get a go upfront with Berahino
7) Lescott should be named captain

Has he sacked him yet?

I can't take this anymore - I'm going as grey at Ted and I'm not 30 yet!  :-X

I couldn't agree more. We actually have the foundations of a good exciting attacking team under the right manager. We saw this last night for the last 15 minutes. Sadly, we have Irvine.

To look on the bright side we've had Gamboa, Valera and Brown all get on the pitch in the past 4 days. We need to see a lot more of them now.

I would agree, but without Irvine...

If by an alarming November you mean defeats to two sides consistently in the top 16 in Europe,  the form team in the Premier league and a victory against our relegation rivals, if he does get sacked I pity the next bloke coming in as the bar of expectation is set pretty high.

As it bloody well should be. Time we starting thinking more highly of ourselves rather than being humble and grateful for any scrap we are offered.
