I really can't see FFP being implemented next season after the lack of action with City and the so far ineffectiveness of clamping down on Villa, Wednesday, Derby etc.

I can imagine next year they will waiver or even scrap FFP due to COVID19. 

There is a vast difference to the domestic EFL FFP and uefas FFP. The latter looks dead in the water but I reckon the EFL and premier league are going to be more strict. Especially with Derby, Wednesday and potentially Villa as they did it pre COVID-19.

Ffp was a platini idea, there are a few in UEFA who want it gone or changed. At the top level it's not for for purpose and lower down the rung it's not stopping clubs going bust.

Danny Crowley has just been fired from Huddersfield. How about Neil Warnock as Director of Football and Cowley as manager? Think Cowley would want to play a similar style to Warnock and could build for the long term.

Cowley and warnock would work for me like. Pearson imo is the best of all worlds, experienced, not too fancy with how he sets teams up but also doesn’t park the bus.

Cant see either of them scenarios happening though, I’m 100% expecting warnock.

The problem isnt as such the manager, it's the recruitment team.

And Watford can keep their dirty mitts off our Neil as well ☺️

My grandfather-in-law has just turned 80 (bear with me, there's a point to this). He's still pretty active, still runs his businesses in his inimitable old-school way, and apart from surrendering his driving licence, is in reasonable health. Nor is he exceptional as an active octogenarian.

People keep saying Warnock will only be here for a year or so because of his age, but is that really the case? Yes he's 71, but he's seemingly incapable of retiring, he loves the Boro, and he's enjoying the job so much he apparently hasn't discussed wages yet. If he wanted to stay for a couple of seasons, I don't see why his age needs to be a barrier.

I do accept he's an old-school manager, but his Cardiff side played some good football en route to the PL, and the team he built dismantled ours at the weekend. And while I'd rather have Pearson now he's available, I don't really buy the whole 'Warnock won't be here for long' argument some people have been advocating lately.

Roy Hodgson is 73 in a couple of weeks.  He's done pretty well with Crystal Palace since joining in 2017.  Warnock seems to know how to put a team together and I think anything would be better than the tripe we've been served up this season.  He certainly has the enthusiasm, hopefully the energy and could (with his knowledge of the Championship) sort out the club regarding transfers etc. with his no-nonsense approach.  

Age is all in the mind.  I speak from experience!

Not to derail the thread but Huddersfield are not getting Pearson. Widely reported they are wanting Bielsas first team coach from Leeds

Going around on Twitter that Aitor is going to Birmingham 😭

Birmingham seem to be even more of a mess than we are. Not sure how well that will go

    • I would go with Bettinelli Dijk Fry Paddy Bola Morsy Sav Kebano Watmore Tav Chuba p.s: We carry on playing the loan lads if they deserve to play as it will offer the best insight in to whether we should pursue them on perm deals in summer. Think Bolasie back for Swansea and 2 starts in 4 days for NML might be a bit much right now hence why I think bench for him for this one. I would also give Howson a breather for this game.
    • At what point do we stop playing the loan lads? Hopefully never, they're probably our best players.
    • I know we were discussing possible GKs we could look at in summer and noted Smithies at Cardiff is not getting a game. He got injured in a game about a month ago and Phillips stepped in and latter has since kept his spot. Obv if that remains the case until end of season Smithies might look to leave, he has a year left on his deal. Someone Warnock might look at. Also as far as target men go, if Norwich go up i dont expect Hugill to be part of they PL plans, he barely gets a game as it is. He might be another one we look at given Warnock said this week there are not many target men about who are available.
    • And so it ends not with a bang but with a whimper: With our hopes of the play offs diminishing inconsistent Boro are being sent to Coventry (well actually Birmingham). Heres what we I have thrown together. The strikers, the recruitment team and the tea lady have all been thrown under the bus in recent weeks. Who will be thrown this week?   What Team and Formation Will Warnock go with? What would you do? At what point do we stop playing the loan lads? Some pictures to make boring stats look interesting: We all remember Keith O’Neil but who were the last two players to move between Coventry and Middlesbrough (clue: they were loan deals)? Opposition Danger Man   Forest legend Des Walker’s kid is the main threat and with stats like those you know our recruitment team will be watching him closely. TLDR: Coventry Up Next Tuesday.
