If we start slipping down the leagues that training ground might come in double handy for first team matches.

Would love know what his role actually was as he seemed to be doing fck all for the last few years


Haunting the current first team manager seemed the main role. Crazy he was allowed to remain after 2015.

Personally I'm glad he's gone. In 9 years employment he has done nothing/very little to advance the club. Was lucky to be retained after his disasterous stint as Manager. I hope Hall is next and Marti can choose his own coaches


Eze? My understanding is that Ramsey was one who saw the talent and potential in Eze when many other Clubs were rejecting him or letting him go. Eze has become a good PL player, earnt us £20 million and perhaps a few more million will be incoming.

Beale had him 'coaching the strikers', which was effectively bibs balls and cones with beale, banfield and the guy he brought from chelsea all above him - which is weird for your 'director of coaching' and the salary that must come with that.

Not sure what he's been doing since Beale but under Ainsworth he was always on the TV gantry at away games in touch with downstairs, and in the posh seats on the train home.


Jobs for the boys is an understatement. A clear out and culture shift is long overdue, I just hope Cifuentes is the driving force behind it, with many more hangers on given the shove.

We no longer have the finances or time to continue with an underachieving academy. It needs to be seriously streamlined with a carefully selected group of proven, capable coaches. Quality not quantity should be the approach.

Wasn't Eze down to Ollie, who had seen him when he was at Millwall, and made sure we grabbed him quickly before others picked up on his talent?

Looking more and more like streamlining the budgets in order to make the club more attractive to sell. The first place you always start is with the middle management layer.


You mean there is someone out there mental enough to buy something which carries a circa £300mill loss as a "business"???

It would be great if there is that crazy multi-billionaire out there wanting to buy us but, straight away, I'd have to question their motives as well as their sanity.

Cherish and enjoy life.... this ain't no dress rehearsal

No was nothing to do with Holloway, signing was Hall & Ramsey

Problem is, the lines are so blurred. You, me, none of us know who he recommended and didn’t. Who managers ignored etc. all clubs, even brighton, make poor signings, but none of us know who exactly has made all those decisions.

Bare bones.

Chair's the top response under QPR's tweet saying 'the best' in relation to Ramsey.

It's interesting, as alluded to by a few other posters, he's had a good rep as a coach within football. And Chair, Eze, Bright all credit him with improving their games.

But has there been a development team signing or young player whose development has really been shaped positively by Ramsey in the last 4 years?


Armstrong?

Hard to know what to make of it really . ‘Rationalise’ is an interesting choice of words from Hoos.
I take that to mean we are clearing the decks possibly because we are still in danger of breaking FFP rules but who really knows?
Maybe it’s the club finally starting to clear out people who have not achieved anything like their goals? But I can’t see us being that efficient, whoever ‘us’ is these days?
Or maybe it was put to Ramsey to walk away with a small payment and he snatched their hand off before the lynchings start? Another ‘ experienced’ head regarding spotting players walking away and leaving Marti more isolated. Maybe Marti didn’t want him there ?

As I said, who knows? Hoos as usual says very little in the way of info, but I for one think it’s time to clear the decks right through and have fresh people , the best people for the job , with fresh ideas about how to turn this all around .

Yeah, but at least brighton are adept at finding other mugs to pass their wastrels on to.

Credit where it's due, that was a good bit of business. If it had been followed up a few 4/5 million pound players he would still be here.

I can't speak for others but my issue was always the fact he was an Ex-First team manager and how that was perceived by JFH, Ollie, Schteve, Warbs, Boil, Critch, Gaz and Marti.

8 managers had to work with a bloke sacked from the job. It's not something you see other clubs doing.

I don't blame Chris for the clubs actions though, best of luck to him. Thanks for Eze !

Need to start finding bigger stronger youngsters for a start, the youngsters breaking through let's just say they are on the short side. We are soft small looking team and it is no coincidence that we get done over, just look at players like Drewe and Pedder vertically challenged in a league populated by 6 foot plus athletes. Look at the Bellingham brothers perfect examples of the stature of a modern top level footballer. Start giving them all 3 shredded wheat.


On a match day you’ll find some of our development squad eating pies hotdogs etc at the bars during the game . Now occasionally in private of course but don’t be willingly seen by the fans on more than one occasion tucking into that shit.

FYI.....Ramsey was heavily involved along with Manisha with the young boys, they were both always around every Sunday at the boys matches. I presume that they were around during the evening at training sessions and during the day for the older boys on full time football. There are 2/3 coaches working part time with the different age groups who gave feedback to Ramsey. When academy youngsters are up for their contract renewal Ramsey would have the final say if it is renewed or not. Presume Manisha will take the lead now.

I suspect the reality of his leaving is that we won't notice any significant loss as a result.

I wish Ramsey good luck.

He did at least have two songs sung about him during his short spell as manager. They were 'you don't know what you're doing' and 'you're getting sacked in the morning' but at least they were songs.

Never knowingly right.
