I quite like this intense football every day malarky.

Season could be Aug-Nov and Feb-May.

3 games per week is much more fun...

Thoughts ?

Imagine buying a season ticket for that.

Not for me.

I enjoy the Christmas period too much.

Plus, from a personal point off view I would miss loads of matches if it was 3 a week, every week.

Birmingham sacked Clolet. 

 

Not a surprise. Strange appointment, strange to keep him on after announcing his arrival.

Bristol City seemingly about to appoint Hughton. Would be a terrific appointment and put them right up near the contenders next season I suspect.

Condensed expense when going to away games, more time off work required.

Bristol City have conducted no interviews so far for their head coach role as their CEO told their local paper yesterday. They will be interviewing a number of candidates. 

on Clolet. From what I have read, their CEO has office at the training ground and like to be involved. Who they will appoint for the last 4 games I don't know. But it was someone who is desperate to work.

Whatever happened to getting the best man to get the best results? Fancy football, bring through the kids, head coaches, CEO's getting involved in the playing situation, just get the best manager in and get the best results, so many keen to overcomplicate.

If that is how Birmingham is run, then they will be going nowhere upwards anytime soon. Nor if they appoint someone like Robbie Fowler.

Look at their managers/head coaches they have had during their time of owning of the club they sacked Rowett very quickly after buying the club cos they wanted this European style of football. (what ever that is)

They have appointed Zola, Redknapp, Cotterill, Monk, Clolet

Different owners have different ideas and thoughts processes. 

Where they go next? god knows.

Robbie Fowler, Lee Bowyer and Nigel Clough are the three favourites on Sky Bet with Craig Gardner and Lee Carsley knocking about.

Birmingham owners are in the football manager mindset. Not happy with what they had in Rowett pushing for the top 6, tried to be clever and have got nowhere.

Exactly what I spend my time warning against here. Keep it simple and focus on results.

I still expect some unknown foreign coach who is happy with the current Birmingham City situation

People can surprise you, but I can't see Fowler being anything other than a total disaster for some reason.

Listening to him reminds me of listening to Paul Ince, and we all know how that one turned out.

He comes across like a little boy lost when in front of a camera these days. Obviously not the biggest thing when it comes to his management potential, but an amazing contrast to the arrogance he had as a player, at least in his younger days.

Sam Vokes has looked really good in this opening 15 mins. Winning everything in the air and linking up play well. Good outlet considering they’ll be playing off scraps here.
Looking every bit the footballer that Gallagher isn’t.

What a hammering for Stoke. 

They, along with Huddersfield, Boro and Hull look like getting out of jail with Wigan's points deduction.

There is some absolute tripe at the bottom of the division. At least six teams that arguably all deserve to be relegated. Stoke and Huddersfield especially considering their squads relative to those around them.

Race for 6th spot is so unpredictable - so many unexpected results.

You can get 25/1 on Rovers for top 6 finish - worth having a punt for the 'he can do no wrong brigade' (get your wallet open Chaddy).

IMO, more than a bridge too far for Rovers and I expect WBA to bring us crashing down to earth - we've conceded 9 goals in our last 4 games whilst WBA have netted 9 goals in their last 3 games.  Lumped on WBA at 5/6. 

After crashing and burning so badly the other night, you certainly need a win. Hopefully not though.

Only lost what I'd won in the previous matches!

If that's "crashing and burning"............................................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think "crashing and burning" is when you spunk £20million+ (including wages) up the wall on two strikers who couldn't hit a cow's arse with a banjo.

Fully expect WBA to win tomorrow with the winnings big enough to buy 2 nice quality reds for dinner tomorrow night.
