Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Hey its worth remembering that Davies bought in McEverly to replace Camera (who was actually part of our best defensive run if I recall!) but yeah, Oakley and Howard may end up at Forest.

Good point about Nigel, I think it could be a good gamble, I just really think Derby need a manager for a few years now rather than someone else we might have to replace too quickly. If he came in I think someone like Hutchings as his assistant would be a good idea!

Oh for another Jim Smith/Steve Mac partnership! Oh for another Burley!

Jewell, right man wrong time- if he'd joined us in the summer I think things would have run a lot better.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well the transfer window is officially open again. I hate this time of year - it's almost unheard for Cardiff to survive any window without selling one of their best players. Ledley is being linked with Stoke apparently - I think he'd be insane to go there with the two teams being where they are right now.

So begins the month of nail-biting terror.

The figure I heard for Ledley from Stoke was £7m I think. They're mad paying out that kind of money when they'll most likely come back down in May. Besides, as you said, moving to Stoke is hardly a step up from Cardiff.

Re Clough and a possible assistant manager, let's bring in Peter Taylor. Clough/Taylor all over again, if that doesn't instill nostalgic-fueled optimism in the fans I don't know what would.

I think the problem that we have at the moment is that whoever comes in, they'll be on a short fuse with the fans. We've become that jaded now due to our experiences over the last 6/7 years that we almost assume the worst and shoot ourselves in the foot in every single situation.

Man City 0-3 Nottm Forest

If that's not new manager syndrome, I don't know what is. Thank you so much Forest.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

All 3 strikers have scored and now the pressure has grown on Billy Davies because our Asst Mananger beat relegation rivals Norwich and just smashed Man City so Billy's 1st game against relegation rivals Charlton is a must win.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

You'll be alright under BD. The man has his faults, but his knowledge of how to fashion a successful Championship team isn't one of them.

4-3 against FGR, thank fcuk for that! Decent fightback, but conceding 3 goals against a non-league side?? FFS! Whoever comes in for us, they've got to look at the defence as a priority.

Nigel Clough should look at Paul Ince.

Had a good thing going in the lower leagues, making steady progress, then jumped too far up the league and crashed and burned.

Nigel Clough should stick with Burton.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I agree, until the end of the season, but only so that he can finish what he started at Burton. Even though I want a manager in asap, I'd still be somewhat disappointed to see him leave Burton on the cusp of achieving what they've been after for the last decade, league football.

That aside though, Clough's served his apprenticeship over the last ten years. Whether he's capable of stepping straight up from the Conference to the Championship is open to conjecture, however, it didn't do Martin O'Neil much harm when he went from Wycombe to Leicester. It does work sometimes.

Derby v Forest
Cardiff v Arsenal
Liverpool v Everton
Kettering Town v Fulham

What an amazing 4th round draw. I can't even remember the other fixtures any more. Just the thought of Arsenal coming to Ninian Park...

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Providing Attwell's not officiating, I don't really think we'll have too much trouble navigating ourselves into the fifth round

Good to get an early chance to fcuk over the poisoned dwarf though.....
