Daniel Stendel is set to resign as Barnsley manager

Not saying we will and not saying we should sack Woodgate at this stage. BUT if we were to make a manegerial change soon (I must stress that I think it’d be an embarrassing decision to do so), I’d take Stendel in a heartbeat.

On what grounds?

Probably all the ones we have yet to play at this season,oh yeah and the Riverside of course? 

That said I'm not sure we have "played" at any grounds this season we just make up the numbers!

Reports in media that Reading are set to sack Gomes as their manager too. That will 2 out the 4 teams below us who sacked their manager. Hopefully neither will benefit from the new manager boss as I feel if we do enter the bottom 3 then pressure really would crank up.

That makes it 3 of the 4 teams below us sack their manager and I'm pretty sure if Stoke didn't have their comeback at Swansea Nathan Jones would of gotten the sack too

Was arguably unjust when he was sacked at Hannover. They were fourth when he was sacked, and the club got promoted that same season. Got Barnsley promoted in his first season in English football. Massively let down by the Barnsley board this season so don’t see their championship form as resting on his shoulders. Hugely popular figure among the Barnsley fans - don’t know if you’ve seen but they held a leaving party for him and he came! He aims to play a style of football that fits in with our supposed new direction.

I can't see him having any more luck here, tbh.

    • I would hope that, if we are signing him, we would have scouted him extensively, weighed out his pros and cons and decided that there is a player there whose strengths we can utilise while we work on the rest of his abilities...... A player undervalued by everyone else because he isn't as proficient in all aspects of his job..... It's almost like, after 5/6 years of this "moneyball" strategy the Gazette has been saying we are implementing, someone has finally picked up the *** book and learnt what it is about. Or at least watched the excellent Brad Pitt movie
    • I get what you're saying, bud, but the club clearly knows the ins and outs of our finances better than we do and if they think we can afford to write off the debt and pay the 1.7m then I am all for it.    The one thing I would be disappointed in is if we broke the new wage structure for him, sets a dangerous precedent. If you're willing to break it for one person then other people will start asking for it. So we would need to be steadfast on that I feel
    • It's a shame that the relegation battle has been the only interesting thing in the PL for months now. I'm hoping for Villa, Bournemouth and Burnley to go down, but I expect Norwich will instead of one of them.
    • Fry for 15 million is probably the right price no disputing that. But ending up essentially paying 6-8 million for Gibson, wages aside, I have a problem with he'd do a decent job on the pitch no doubt but at a time where we are reigning in spending (rightly in my opinion) I don't see why we need a 6-8 million pound player especially at CB right now we aren't rounding up the promotion band and moving for Bolasies/Ritchies anymore I just put a Gibson move in that bracket to be honest the impact on the team minimal, relative cost high and feels like we'd be back to square 1 I'd rather see us bank the cash for a couple of years at most spend 3 million on 1 player if he's key. If we didn't give a f about finances as fans getting Gibson back would be universally welcomed the problem is I've been told to care repeatedly over the years and I hated paying 7 million for Flint, hated the 6 million pound Joe Bryan bids as well paying that money for defenders in this league is just burning money in my opinion. I want prudence from us financially that's all, we preach it as a club sometimes then seem to lose our minds whether it's trying for Besic last year for 6 million or Gibson now I'm very sceptical as a club we should be paying those kind of fees whilst we're in this division that's a main part of my problem even if it's technically a 'write off' we're losing a guaranteed 7 figure income off the books to bring him and whatever wage he's on back it seems out of whack with our priorities to me.
    • You make it sound too easy 😋 I genuinly doubt Ayala, Clayton and Howson had any decent interest that would promt us to sell. Clayton I think we'd have sold fairly cheaply. I think the players haven't been willing to just sign the first reduced contract we offered and probably wants to see how things developed and whether any teams would show interest. We can't force them to sign lesser contracts and we can't make other teams buy them. The offers would have to make sense too. It would probably be better to just let Ayalas contract run down than sell him for less than a million last summer.
