|Must Win Game|
at 08:16 24 Apr 2017
Isn't it interesting that after Clement called Stoke a must win game, we got a must win performance? When Clement said Hull wasn't a must win game (he said a point would be ok) we lost the game. And we continued without a win until Saturday.
We can talk about quality on the field, but if the players and manager don't have the right mentality then what's the point?

Well done to the team on Saturday, magnificent performance in the face of 12 opposition players. And to our saviour Clement. Still a way to go, but he's done wonders since coming in and improved everyone on the pitch.
But also, thank god our January signings have paid off. Carroll, Olsson, Narsingh, and even Ayew when he came on were great. We wouldn't be where we are without them, I don't think. They've slotted in seemlessly in such a short period of time.
A pity Jenkins couldn't have done this business in the summer when we needed it the most, but it's only fair that for all the deserved criticism, he gets praise when it's due. Still think he should fck off in the summer though.

From 2012: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/18071937
"Like Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers - with whom he passed his A licence in 1999 - Clement fits the profile of a promising, young British manager perfectly and hopes to one day emulate his Northern Irish friend. "I'd like to think there's a chairman out there who will look at me and think 'he's had a good apprenticeship'.
"Some chairmen still like the traditional style of manager but others prefer a more innovative coach with fresh ideas; somebody with a thirst for learning what's out there, who's travelled the world looking at different methods. I certainly hope more clubs will give opportunities to younger coaches like Brendan."
Written in the stars?
|Do you trust Bradley?|

Do you trust Bradley with the January transfer window? Assuming there's money to spend. I don't.
Personally, I think we should get rid and appoint an experienced manager with good contacts. Let him have a couple of games before the January window to see what needs to be done.
This is, of course, depending on whether Huw/the Americans will allow the manager to pick players.

|This is not a team|
at 23:02 3 Dec 2016
This is not a team, this is a bunch of individuals signed not by a manager, but by a chairman who thinks he knows football.
If we actually had players signed by a manager who knows what he wants from a squad, we would not be in this mess. Instead, it seems Huw has just picked players who he liked the look of, and hoped they would gel. Idiot.
And who is this head of recruitment, David Leadbeater? How long has he been in this position and how come he hasn't been sacked yet?
|Where do we go from here?|
at 18:11 6 Nov 2016
1) We don't have the players or depth of squad needed to compete at this level
2) We have owners who don't communicate with the fans/trust
3) We have a chairman who is past his expiry date, still defending our transfer policy
4) We have a manager who is in over his head
Where do we go from here? What are our next steps? There was chanting today, which is good, but real action needs to be taken. I have no idea what comes next, but I'm sick to death of having to watch the same old sh!t every week.
