If we use Dunc till end of season, we then have quite a few waste of spacers leaving due to end of contracts.
Surely that is the time to make the change of manager, as he wouldn't then have to put up with all those knob heads.


1.) 18 Jan 2022 12:38:24
Be good to see Big Dunc running up and down when we score, so much passion.

2.) 18 Jan 2022 14:11:22
GB you loved them all? Big Dunc like a headless chicken.



18 Jan 2022 12:09:45
Ferguson has sat next to and worked with some of the top managers (apparently) in football. So all he has to do is take the best bits of each one, and ignore the crap.
Doesn't leave him with much I know, but it's a start.
What I will say is their was a definite increase in positivity from the players when he took over last time, and he wasn't scared of making big decisions. Like putting kean on then taking him off again for doing sod all.
At least it will get the crowd behind the team again, which is something they desperately need right now.




17 Jan 2022 15:11:01
Simple answer Galtier. You want a manager that sorts clubs out develops youth and is successful. Galtier.
Stop all this Martinez nonsense.
Galtier, should have got him before Carlo and Rafa the red (pinched that from another poster) .
Had we done we wouldn't be the s**t show we are now.
Galtier for me, and he's available.


1.) 17 Jan 2022 15:31:14
Galtier is currently second in Ligue 1 with Nice having won their last 4. As much as I’d love to have him, what makes you think he’s available?

2.) 17 Jan 2022 15:34:31
I like your thinking Brass. Have you got Moshiri number?
Or better still phone Galtier up say your Moshiri and offer him the job?.

3.) 17 Jan 2022 17:32:57
Think he's looking to move into Prem, would have to wait till end of season but it possible.

4.) 18 Jan 2022 00:12:36
He would move tomorrow, ££££££, that's the way it is in professional sports.



16 Jan 2022 11:52:39
Look the goal for the rest of this season is just to survive. Their really wouldn't be any point in rushing another appointment unless the board have a clear indication of who they want.

Therefore let Dunc see out the season. Don't offer him any stupid contract, just see how he goes.

We are fortunate that there are a lot of poor teams in the league this season, and so a small up turn in form would probably keep us up.
Think Dunc could manage that.


1.) 16 Jan 2022 12:06:48
Boring perhaps but for me football is a sport not a game. We want to be entertained is the cry, Brownshoes to much tippy tappy is the cry 5th and 11th. Fat Sam boring 8th. Boring football 1-0 every game for me.

2.) 16 Jan 2022 12:16:59
Problem is Bill we can't win every game 1-0 so some. of those wins turn into draws and some into losses.
No fan is going to want to watch 10 Boring wins with the rest being draws and losses.

3.) 16 Jan 2022 12:57:51
Well get the boring 10 out the way, that's 30 points, scramble the other 10 pts and then kick on. I am one supporter that would watch 1-0's every game. Good for the heart.

4.) 16 Jan 2022 15:20:21
Problem is we can't win any game 1 nil because we usually concede in first few minutes. I'd take 2 1 every game!



12 Jan 2022 13:30:36
To all those saying Digne has been rubbish for last two years.
Season 20/ 21.
Games played 30 Ranked 7th.
Assists 7 Ranked 1st.
Chances created 46 Ranked 1st.
Passes into opp box 208 Ranked 1st.
Open play crosses 155. Ranked 1st.
Not too shabby, and we let him go for 25m?


{Ed025's Note - but he wants away brass so what can you do?..

1.) 12 Jan 2022 13:57:19
Want to walk away or been pushed. Article posted by VW268 a good insight into Rafa's aporoach. I have to admit, my wanting him at our Club was based on positive info, info it turns out mostly coming from him. ?.

2.) 12 Jan 2022 14:13:32
At 25m, if he wanted to go, we got a fair price, but to give them back 15m for a player who could not hold down his place in a VERY, poor side, given our ffp circumstances is just plain crazy .

{Ed025's Note - im with you JCW..

3.) 12 Jan 2022 14:36:03
Brassington - what do those stats matter? We still failed to qualify for Europe with those stats he posted.

He wanted out - he’s gone for £25m which is a decent price.

If he was so amazing as some fans want to believe then why has he gone to villa? The only other club that was in for him was Newcastle who possibly will be relegated this season.

No champions league team were banging our door down for him.

{Ed025's Note - fair points there dan..

4.) 12 Jan 2022 14:40:59
Think 25 mill is a good deal for him. On unsustainable wages given our FFP issues, and we’re getting what we paid for him even after 3.5 seasons here and then some. Aye he’s good, much better than some people have retroactively decided because he wants out, but he isn't irreplaceable. Good deal in my opinion, even if i'd like him to stay.

5.) 12 Jan 2022 14:47:12
I’m with Brass here. Yes he wanted to go but was that because he wanted out of Everton or away from Benitez?
Dan are you saying it’s his fault we didn’t qualify for Europe?
£25m for a player in his prime and considered to be one of the best left backs in the Premiership is not a decent price.
Maybe he likes the idea of playing for a young manager who believes in him, and will play to his strengths.
You have no idea who might have been in for him, only what you read.
Stats don’t lie. We have let one of our best players go to a team similar to ourselves, and he will make them stronger.
Who next DCL, Richarlison?

{Ed025's Note - but you cant let players rule the roost latch, just because he does not like rafa does not mean he can hold the club to ransom mate..

6.) 12 Jan 2022 15:02:13
So Bob if he’s one of the best left backs in the premier league whys he gone to Villa?

I’m repeating myself here but if he was that good and as you suggest one of the best left backs in the league why were only villa and Newcastle in for him? No top teams were in the chase.

He was amazing first couple of seasons we had him, but not the last couple.

Not his fault solely we didn’t qualify for Europe but he’s not blameless - he’s a defender and we shipped in a shed load of goals the last 2 seasons, while his attacking qualities had been good, his defensive ones not so and end of the day want my defence to defend first and assist score second.

7.) 12 Jan 2022 15:08:00
I am with you up to a point Ed, however Rafa has got form here, form that indicates he is not just stubborn mate but downright 'obstinate' surely that would repel players of every type of personality every calibre of talent and even test a players loyalty to club and fans.

{Ed025's Note - i can see your concerns R2R and i agree that he is bloody minded, the jury is still out for me and i think the next couple of weeks is pivotal whether or not he goes or stays, we need 4 points at least from the norwich and newcastle games i feel mate and then see how the land lies..

8.) 12 Jan 2022 15:29:46
I hear you Ed, and when we get the proverbial magic 40, I will close this account down and choose a more cheerful i'd .

{Ed025's Note - im looking forward to that mate..

9.) 12 Jan 2022 18:21:01
Digne is just an bang average full back in the Premiership, great bit of business from Everton ( for a change) to get 25m for a 29 year old that is past his best with an obvious bad attitude towards the club that was paying him 100k per week, Villa already have a better full back in his position not sure why they wanted him to be honest.

10.) 12 Jan 2022 19:53:34
Great LB, Crap LB or just bang average. Good value for money, over priced or under priced . tbh none of this matters to me as it’s all about opinions I suppose hence why SG has decided to buy him after securing Coutinho for the Villa. What bothers me is it’s a player who wants to leave and has told our Manager that he no longer wants to play for the club any more. Now this could be just one apple here and there is nothing to suggest otherwise but something just doesn’t feel right, very disheartening .

11.) 12 Jan 2022 20:24:08
people keep banging on about those stats but love to ignore the fact that he is absolutely woeful defensively and his stupid fouls at the edge of our box countless times. coerners are woeful. free kicks woeful. And don't get me started on his instagram posts after every mediocre performance.

12.) 13 Jan 2022 01:17:47
Have to somewhat agree with joe from germany on the digne opinion. Amazed by how some people on here are talking him up, makes it sound like Leighton baines never played for us (now he was a full back and one of the best in the prem consistently for 5 years or so! ) . digne last 2 seasons has been crap. I'm sure he's a decent fella and I'm not saying he didn't try. I recall a certain game against wolves at home maybe pre C.V. where he got torn to pieces time and time again by that traore. He isn't a very good defender nor is he one of the best left backs in the prem. Actually for once I think it is very astute business selling him for a good fee especially given the mire we are in with ffp and given he was one of the clubs highest earners. Maybe the saLe goes a long way towards balancing the books. Of course it's calculated risk but this could ease the pressure and mean we can keep the likes of dcl and richarlison? What would I know though. Re el ghazi paying a fee would be madness but as a loan 100 percent I'd have him. Agree that we are very weak now in central defense, central midfield and bizarrely having signed every number 10 going in 2017 we have very little creativity in that area of the park! I don't think we will get relegated, I do think rafa has made mistakes, I don't think he's a bad manager and I think sacking him will only breed yet more instability. I think we will have a little run now especially once he gets his pawns in position and I think we will see gradual improvement from next season. I just wish there was a unity at the games because the anti benitez stuff is madness and won't help results or the 1st 11.

Sell one of the best left backs in the Prem, and bring in someone you have never heard of from a crap league. But hey he's young so that's ok.

Bm you are correct with everything you say mate, and I will keep saying it. Benitez is not a great manager. He is living on a past reputation that ne longer stands up in the Premier league.
Going the match use to be fun, few beers and a bit of banter and the hope your team would win. Now you have a few beers before the game to get you through the rubbish you have to watch on the pitch.
And it's not all down to the players. I am sick of reading how bad our players are. Well their not, we have a lot of quality in the squad, certainly enough to see off the likes of Brentford.
But we set up to fail, we are so bloody negative it's embarrassing.

Careful your not just looking at a decent player in a poor team. Seen this before were young players shine in a poor team, then can't make the step up. Looks similar to Davies to me.

Well Utd not exactly pulling up trees right now, Arsenal blowing hot and cold and Sours have a manager who's not sure if he will even stay for more than the one season.

I also have friends who support these clubs and none of them are happy. Look how much United have spent on players recently, and half of them can't even get in the team.

Sancho, Van de Beek how much?
