If Warnock goes we need to show some blummin ambition. 

Like Leeds with Bielsa. 

There is the luxury of having the time to plan now rather than a knee jerk panic and no time for a full pre season and recruitment to suit the incomings preferred playing style.

Also like with pulis, he's going to offer Warnock a new contract in the summer, Warnock will either accept and we'll have more of the same or hell reject and we'll end up with a rookie or another championship weathered manager. 

There is zero invention, vision or ambition in the way that we make footballing decisions, there hasn't been since karanka, orta and kenyon were involved.

The vision is undoubtedly the worst thing. It's like Gibson's on a farewell tour, paying little heed to what lies beyond.

I think we'll beat Huddersfield, so hopefully that will stop the slide and regain a bit of confidence.

4 defeats in 5 is terrible.

1 win in 8 is even worse ☹️

It’s a great time for a new manager to come in. Britt, Fletcher, Bett, Bolasie, Kebano and Archer. Probably Johnson as well. 

A big chunk off the wage bill and a load of freebies available.

Also, I thought Warnock was a great man manager? Hes spent the last couple of games digging out our strikers, even saying if we had the oppositions striker we would have won. Like them or not, Britt and akpom are here and our manager shouldn't be so disparaging of them in public. If it was pulis or karanka doing that they would have been crucified, regardless of if it's right or not

Crap result again - but I think the team was massively outperforming pre-Xmas rather than underperforming now. This is a team that almost got relegated last year - people forget pretty fast. I don’t expect us to be challenging for playoffs this year and the fact that we are anywhere near is a bonus.
 

Is NW the right man for the long term? Who knows... - I’d prefer to build a footballing culture and bring through young managers playing attractive, attacking football but 1) so would every club 2) Gibson won’t change/commit to that 3) fans won’t take 2/3 seasons of being mid table or lower (which is what it would take). So we’re stuck with what we’ve got - which is a bit depressing. I do think I’d give NW one more year to try and make a difference - as there will be some serious wage room when Assombolonga’s contract rolls off.

I think giving Warnock 1 more year would arguably be the sensible option.

We want to keep hold of Bolasie, NML and Kebano ideally.

We need to bring in a decent centre forward, centre back, keeper and midfielder or 2.

It's the spine that's the problem, not the wings anymore. Britt and Bettinelli off the wage bill would help. Saville needs moving on, he is a lower Championship midfielder. I still can't believe we sanctioned £7m on him.

Interesting stats. 

The gap between the two seasons is narrowing right now, but that 35 point part was after a 4 game winning run.

After 29 games we were on 35 points.

After 38 we were on 41 points.

As bad as things are right now, I can't see us only getting 1 point in the next 9 games.

Out performing do you mean winning or a draw is now out performing as opposed to expected.. The team under performed last year but that is not a excuse and neither should it be a yard stick for this season. 
I didn’t or don’t expect us to be in the playoffs but I expect to see some back bone, football, line ups that make sense. 
NW is not the right man for a project but don’t expect a project either otherwise you will be vastly disappointed.

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
