The true reason Potter had that reputation (If indeed he ever did have) was simply because too often, he selected the WRONG starting line up . Having to change his team / shape during the match, to save us from defeat.
Yes it was a shockingly poor/lazy decision by Jenkins. He thought he could get away with putting who he thought at the time, was his puppet in position on the cheap and also at the same time appoint himself as dof.
Connor is just not kicking on like others around him. Not sure if it's down to ability ( reached his ceiling) or attitude. Personally I think it's the latter. As every now and then, he shows glimpses of what he can do. Either way it must be sickening for him to have seen DJ come from behind him to get a big money move to Manure while he's still playing championship football.
Of course not Darren. It was opening day of the season and goals from Ki & Siggy gave us an unexpected win and poured cold water over Van Gaal's first game in charge at OT. As you also probably recall, we did the double over them that season. But that didnt stop the steady change that eroded the style we had all grown acustomed to. I've stated a few times over the years since, that it became a major concern to a fair few of the group I was with. I recall the defeat to Blackburn in the cup where we had 2 sent off (Bartley/Siggy) when the start of the boos/unrest on the terraces began. As I'm sure the majority of fans would now agree, under Monk we became just another mid -lower league team in terms of style /substance. Which was polar opposite to what got us up and then initially kept us there. We never recovered from the damage caused under Monk. Just sack, survive and repeat until we finally succumbed to the inevitable. It has taken a relegation and a massive clear out for us to have the chance to reset.
Granted, but also playing utter Shiite football at the same time. Had the misfortune to watch every game home & away and trust me when I say Monk, Pep & Beatie ruined us, plain and simple. For one records points total, Monk put this club back years. Today watching Brum, reminded me of how we played under him, obviously though with better players. Surely I can’t be the only one who felt it was like watching a Martinez/Rodgers/Laudrup Swans v a Monk Swans out there today Thank Christ we’ve managed to return to our former selves is all I can say!

Watching sky sports PL now and they have documentary about Wolves trip to China to forfill owner obligations etc. Just got me wondering what could have been like for us, if the alleged Chinese consortium that came in for us, had been successful instead of the Yanks... 🤔
Well hopefully if true, he has learned his lesson and will knuckle down and develop into a top talent for the national team to call upon. It's such a shame to see so many of these quality youngsters, fall by the wayside simply due to getting too much too soon!
I meant to add that if this fans suggestions had some legs, this could get us a few more million for him. Though I reiterate what I said the other day, in that I'd prefer him to stay unless we get to silly money for him plus possibly a player too..
But this k if true what has been written on here and elsewhere, we not only overpaid for players, but also gave out massive contracts that only continual survival in premier league could cover. And even then i heard we were borrowing against future tv payments to cover it. But I think that has all been done to death on here already...
