A week after nearly killing him self and club captain driving after drinking all night Tom Lawrence started for Derby tonight 

And in the Wales squad. That will teach him. Gutted by the lack of morals in football - no wonder they all think they are bullet proof.

Seems to be suggesting he's staying on now. Maybe nobody else was interested.

Looks like they have not been able to bring in who they want? I would imagine that Hughton and Pulis was those people.

Incidentally Stoke's last win, one of only 3 Jones has masterminded came against (according to the BBC)... 

 

Yep, you guessed it, us. 

Mentioned for 2 reasons. Firstly to show how badly Jones has done. And secondly it shows, or is further evidence, we are pretty clueless Vs weak opposition.

How Neil Harris gets sacked before Nathan Jones is beyond me.

Oh dear. One of the best managers in the championship. Him and the guy at Bristol, to me, have worked wonders.

I wonder what happened? Didn't sense he was close to leaving.

maybe after last night game He thought to himself that he has taken them as far as he can. Who take over there I don't know

Probably a young hungry manager

Very surprised at that Millwall development. Not exactly adrift (only 3 points behind us in a congested bottom half). Club legend. One of the last I'd have expected to be on his way after only 10 games.

I did wonder if Stoke had put the feelers out today and he's decided to jump ship.

Some eyebrow raising names among the early favourites including Hughton, Karanka and McCarthy. Can't see Millwall being able to lure any of those there. More likely they'll go for a former player.

Can see someone like Rowett or Ainsworth or Roy Keane getting the job.

Can't be long until another club takes a punt on Rowett.

I think him and Monk will have managed every club in the championship between them by 2022.

I think Rowett is a decent manager albeit one who will deliver functional and defensive football. Would be a good appointment for a side like Millwall. Also shown he can do it on a limited budget at Birmingham. His record at Stoke not looking so bad in hindsight.

Out of interest, would you have Rowett here over Mowbray?

I don't really have an opinion of Rowett either way, think he's pretty average who will probably always get a championship job.

Can't say I would be overjoyed or disappointed if he rocks up here one day.

I don't think enough of him to get shut of Mowbray to bring him in. I don't think he's THAT good. Whereas a McCarthy, Hughton or Bruce if available and willing to come I would seriously look at having here over Mowbray.

But if Mowbray were to leave for whatever reason then yes, I think Rowett would tick a lot of our boxes when searching for a new manager. I'd probably put Rowett in a similar bracket to Warburton and Monk. Decent records in this league albeit not the promotion nack of a Hughton or Bruce who seem to be able to transform clubs into contenders overnight.

Very suprised to hear how happy millwall fans are that Harris has left. From their forums sounds like the fans turned on him and he decided to leave on the back of that, which is pretty honourable from him Tbf. Reckon mil wall fans will regret turning on him tho.

McCarthy is a former player and boss there isn't he?  Could see him turning up there.

Contracted to Ireland until next summer's Euros are finished so would have to job share until then, can't see Ireland agreeing to share him.

Have to think Woodgate will start feeling the pressure if this keeps up. Boro look further away than ever at the moment.

Birmingham deserve to win that game. Thought they were good. Alot of good young footballers there. Sunjic looked class in anchor man midfield role. Record signing there

Boro shocking mostly..look so poor. Alot of work for Woodgate to do there. Dont see any manager there yet
