|In Ainsworth's Defence|

Not making a case for him with us, but i've read a lot of unkind comments on what a boring, direct manager he supposedly is (words like dinosaur have been used).
If you say so. I don't know really, haven't watched his team much. With a budget 'significantly lower' than every other team in the Championship, though, it's hardly a surprise if that's how he's going about it. If you've got the worst squad, it stands to reason you're going to set up to prioritise a clean sheet and then just lump it up there to get what you can at the other end. It's generally eminently sensible in that position. I bet he doesn't play three holding midfielders at least.
There's no reason to suppose that's all he'd be trying with a larger budget. Nobody other than Tony Pulis and Sam Allardyce actively want to play sh!t football. Ainsworth was the very antithesis of a boring player after all.
It's the hair dye that would be the deal breaker for me, though. Never trust a fella who dyes his hair.
Ps I'm also not so completely convinced that old skool football, which to me would involve wingers, two up front, high tempo, lots of crosses actually is more boring than watching two teams passing back and forth in front of their own 'keeper with barely a shot all game anyway. That's how Rangers used to play, we were never boring.

Tonight it is. Blimey, doesn't really get any more exciting than that. Hope it goes well.

Denmark just murdered 17 million Minks. 17 million. How utterly despicable. I wish i could cull those responsible.
