Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

From the Guardian:

Warnock – a regular on flights between Teesside and Newquay as he shuttles between the north-east and his family home in Cornwall...

Anyone else find it a bit concerning that he's always shuttling back and forth? Surely you would expected a manger to need to be based full-time at the club they're running, especially in the Championship when we have games so frequently.

On the surface it doesn't look great, but I suppose it's not much different to our players who lived further afield.

Hour and half flight there, hour and a half flight back. Presumably once a week, I imagine he's spending most of his time here and probably stays at Rockcliffe a lot of the time.

Clayton was driving back home to Harrogate after every training session and match.

I’m sure covid is more rife in football than we realise. There are so many false negative tests, we know Coulson has been unwell for a few weeks, then Pears and Stojanovic. Half the Watford players were out due to (amongst other things) illness. I think it’s a problem waiting to explode. 
Hope Neil is okay, he’s in a vulnerable age group so fingers crossed a mild dose of it and he’s back to full fitness very soon

I've heard of lots of false positives, but not false negatives?

    • I just can't see where the money is going to come from judging from the club accounts and Bulkhauls horrendous year. Unless sales are happening
    • As mentioned above I do feel the lack of depth and quality in the first half of the season had an impact with us unable to rotate and rest players in our squad meaning we struggled in the 2nd half of the season. The likes of Mcnair were playing 4 games in 8-9 days with the international breaks but we didn't have any option to rest him given injuries and lack of quality to cover him. I think we were only a point off Watford when we got to January. Unfortunately our 3 loanees came with a lack of match sharpness requiring time to settle and then we lost the likes of Tav Dijksteel and Fry at important parts of the season. I agree with the second part I do worry with giving Warnock significant money considering he has probably got no more than 12 months left with us. It would be a huge gamble and if it goes wrong it sets us back another few years. However we need a fair few signings to even get on par regarding the standard of our squad for this season.   
    • We were certainly worse after January but the 3 players we brought in hardly kicked a ball in the first half of the season and required several weeks if not months to get up to standard. I feel if they had all joined in the summer it would have eased the burden on the squad by giving us more depth and quality after a few weeks of the season. It would have eased the pressure and overplaying the likes of Taverner who ended up getting injured with nobody to come in to effectively replace him. I think our poor form in the 2nd half of the season would have been impacted by 'burnout' when you think about the amount of games several players were having to play. Howson and Mcnair examples of players who struggled towards the end of season. I do worry for next season though as we are going to need at least 6-7 new signings to replace what we have lost and probably a couple more on top of that to be seen as a strengthened team unless our academy players are able to make the step up. Im not sure I have faith in us completing so many signings this summer.  
    • The point being none settled in and we just got worse as the season rolled on and finally give up. A centre back is not what we needed but a new manager. How the hell SG can put faith and money in NW is simply financial suicide.  
    • Withered is very polite way of putting it, I would say we crashed landed with a large thump. What gets me is NW blamed the very signings he made and then concludes the fans will be happy. Not only that he hopes with new signings to finish 10th or possibly above. Setting the bar so low is hardly away to get fans buzzing and parting with money, it’s hardly worth bothering with next season.
