Win, lose or draw, looking forward to a good end of season away day... (obviously the first option is the preference of choice though)

Plymouth had their kick up the jacksie on Saturday and will need to perform better if they still have hopes of the play-offs.
Southend have nothing really to play for however they may want to impress Chris Powell for next seasons contracts with a bit of luck.
A nervous night...

Heads up for those travelling - Villa and Wolves are both at home with 3pm kick offs on Saturday so that's about 65,000 people attending those two. The M6 and trains will no doubt be busy.

Especially wearing claret near any Brum fans...

It really didn't look great, half finished stand with advertising from a company that are taking legal action against us......

I won....

What a great video, reminiscent of the Goal! film from '66.
It's surprising how good our' little' ground appears through someone else's eyes...

Drunk in The Saddlers?

Well done...

Totally disagree and shows in my opinion a complete misunderstanding the psychology of managing footballers - if they believe they are down why the hell would they work their socks off and perhaps more significantly (before the old playing for a contract with another club chestnut) comes out - getting stuck in where they might get hurt.
Sure only one game but the change of attitude was palpable and even managed to lift the crowd to a good vocal level of support.

I believe that you misunderstood my piece; we are almost in complete agreement.
Convince the players that although everyone else believes that they are already down, bring them together with a backs against the wall attitude for the last five/four matches to give it a go. If the players go along with it and it works great but the damage had already been done under the previous regime if not, therefore a free hit for the manager.
The management of the team/squad when faced with 46 games would be slightly different because the up and at them approach would be difficult to maintain for the whole season and his job would be on the line if it goes wrong therefore naturally more cautious.
I am experienced in the intricacies of management of personnel (individually and in groups) in a sporting/competitive environment, especially when the price of failure could be catastrophic. (not saying that this reaches that threshold though)

Arsene sacked by Arsenal, effective at the end of the season..
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Dean Austin on: April 22, 2018, 16:16:58 pm
totally agree with last poster that he has proved although over just 2 games that he can get the team playing football in a positive way (he seems like a proper football man IMO). 

Easy when you have five matches to go and everyone believes that you are already down to 'go for it'. A free shot to nothing.
Different when you are managing the whole season with a minimum level of expectation.
He may earn his 'emotional' appointment for next season but his current performance isn't a complete CV.

You might want to take into account that Plymouth’s song is “Molly Molone” so there’s a good chance you’re flirting with an overweight 50 year old bloke from Saltash.

Probably an ex RN submariner who wouldn't necessarily encourage the flirting to stop...

It's so strange; I frequent many forums across a host of subjects and from the early days of the world wide web, but I've never come across such a dull-witted entity as this guy. The admins and moderators on a lot of the forums I use wouldn't tolerate such brazen trollery (made up word but sounded cool).

Why, what's Irchy done to you?

I don't think a predictor formula is required to reach such a conclusion!

Will Smith's fav Stone Roses number 'I am the Resurrection's or maybe some s***e from Status Quo will be ringing in our ears!

Beginning of the End...?

Let the workers pick the boss?

Because that's a successful model right?

I'm glad that you answered, I couldn't...
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Relegation Watch on: April 19, 2018, 07:54:57 am

A win against Plymouth and it's all to play for.

Glad I've already got my ticket for Walsall...
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: DEAR MR THOMAS- More questions than answers? on: April 18, 2018, 08:13:00 am
.....When people say that no-one will contribute to something they don't get anything back on I'd say it's untrue. Norwich fans crowd funded a new academy for the club using Tifosy. There are various benefits that come with Tifosy. Stevenage fans received 4-8% interest along with other perks for crowd funding their new stand.

You state one thing and then provide two examples of the opposite?

Mass clearout except Kasim

That'll leave a Kasim...  Cool
