When KC came in we had some good players (Crooks, Van Veen) who were playing badly in league 2.
When JB took over we had some poor players playing badly in league1, different scenario completely.

If every team in the league had identical budgets, six would be looking at promotion and six would be fighting against relegation, so other factors are at work. Good luck plays a big part with injuries, refereeing decisions and of course recruitment. In the case of the latter, the better the recruitment team the less luck you need. Last season the recruitment was largely good(e) this season largely crap and so we are where we are!

Yes, but who's fault is it, the managers, the players or the man/men at the top? The six near the top have mainly,  got more money and spent, budgeted and recruited wisely, the six near the bottom haven't and luck, injuries, refereeing decisions even themselves out over the season, whether you've got a "football man" at the top or not.

Get Rico out there. He'd be a lot better than any of our other "options".

I know,.....he's not registered.

Could he have Joe Nuttall's shirt?, nobody knows what he looks like! Grin

Was Edmonson really one of his main targets in the transfer window, or was that just spin, hoping he'd come good because the budget was so s***e.


Iíve no reason to doubt what KC said, he said the same about Miller and there was definitely talk of that prior to the season starting. Obviously like you say any talk about budget is just speculation, you can believe itís s***e, for me Iím fairly confident itís not in the bottom 4 so there was no reason other than poor recruitment for KC so have assembled this woeful relegation fodder team.

Why has no one mentioned al Jazeera?
Cant keep away from it myself. HRH was a fan too.

I used to get that and other local news while I was living in the gulf. Some of it was just comedic. Mind you we did get Rush Limbaugh on the US forces radio which was just as much fun.

I agree with your conclusion but let's not forget when KC came in we were in league 2 and now under Brady we're in a much harder league 1.

So basically, they've both come up wanting in league 1. Is it the managers. the players or the man/men at the top?

Isn't it funny, that this thread is allowed to run and run despite all the political bulls***,  jingoism and other nonsense.
 I'm not complaining, some of the posts on here are unbelievably naive and quite comical and it's quite interesting and sometimes pretty surprising, even though I don't know most of the posters, which colours they nail to their masts. Incidentally, who are the best popstars, who were alive at the time but are now dead that the moderators have ever seen?
I suspect Rick Parfitt will be in there somewhere?

When KC came in September 2018 we had 7 points from 10 games. Taking over DA's jigsaw he immediately turned the season around and from the remaining 36 games achieved 54 points ( equivalent to 69 points over a full season).
Since JB has taken over KC's jigsaw the uptick in results has been miniscule, KC had 24 points from 26 games and JB has 16 points from 15 games (equivalent to 49 points over a full season) so still relegation form.
Personally I like the fact we have 3 ntfc men in charge but it is a results business and the product on show has not been good. If there is no suitable experienced manager available it may be worth taking a punt on an up and coming manager from the National League or a younger man employed as a number 2 at another club.
