If the mods could move the posts from the Villa thread that are relevant to this thread that would be a useful start I think. Then in future any posts like this on match threads can be moved across here leaving the match thread for the matches only as it's supposed to be whilst giving people a place to talk about other related things like managers and players.

Pointless thread. Tony Pulis is manager and thats isnt going to change anytime soon, no matter what anyone says.

 

It's not a pointless thread.  It's not a thread to discuss removing him or getting a new one, it's a thread to discuss the general topic of the manager and everything within that.  It will keep it away from the match thread, which I think is something people would prefer?

Wouldn't say that's a certainty anyways. A couple of bad results and we are in the same position Monk was when sacked, and playing even worse football.

i think it would be better and cause less going off in tangents .  in fact why not go the whole hog and do the same for each individual player .

Agree with CT, it's good to have more diverse threads.

 

I've watched every single game this season, either live, on TV, or via a stream... but won't be watching anymore apart from games like QPR and Reading that I'm going to live. It's just not fun, simple as that. I still want us to win every game, and will be happy when we do, but there are things I'd rather do with my weekend. Happy to check the score on here and then watch highlights in the evening.

 

Beyond sick of Pulis and his negative tactics of giving up before the game has even started - never wanted him and won't be happy til he's gone. We've been played off the park by teams worth a fraction of ours and it is totally fair to expect more at this level.

 

Anyone who thinks this has a happy ending has not paid any attention to his career to date. We've arrived at the part where's he's sucked the joy and soul out of a club, but seemingly skipped the successful part that sometimes precedes it.

Does anyone think it may have been better to have let Aitor take "gardening leave" during his off the field problem period to concentrate on his family....OK, we would still have dropped back down but Burnley stuck with Dyche and it worked out for them (sort of)....or was club too divided already?

I'm almost certain we'd be considerably better off with Karanka.

However it was time for him to go at the stage.

Well Karanka has pretty much been proven right when he kicked off about them not backing him in the transfer market. That season could have been saved.

 

Hindsight is a wonderful thing though and letting him go seemed like the right thing to do - replacing him with a clueless amateur was the major problem.

We were a fast sinking ship towards the end of Karanka’s reign so it was the right decision at the time. Same with Mowbray, and look how well he’s doing now.

 

Good idea for a thread CT, as there’s much discussion about the manager whether you like it or not.

I think we should skip the manager system

 

we cant afford to build a new squad to new managers everytime they quit or get fired

 

Better the club sits down and decide how they wanna run the club. System and all. Then all our teams can play the same and we recruit head coaches or whatever you wanna call him/her that fit that system.

Think karanka was damaged goods here long before he went. The choice wasn’t just keep or get rid of karanka, it was get rid karanka or keep him and get rid of quite a few of the players. I don’t think getting rid of him was negative, it was that we replaced him with one of Steve’s old boys and that was a disaster!

 

As I’ve said before, let’s get a young manager in who wants to build something- like Bournemouth did with Eddie Howe

A Gary Monk type figure?

    • Yes it does. Seems like the Belgian league pulled the trigger too soon because they have been summoned into a meeting with uefa after uefa said they would ban clubs for next season if the leagues were cancelled. 
    • Hi everyone and I hope all are doing as well as can be under the circumstances? Still no sign of this nightmare abating for a while yet. Plenty of examples of people still not understanding the social distancing rules or maybe defying the advise or instruction. Plenty of conspiracy theories going around and certainly G5 towers being damaged because of it. Where will it end I wonder as I would not be surprised to see further examples of social unrest down the line. Are any of you feeling the brunt of the reality of COVID 19 or know of friends, family that are going through it, if so hopes of a pull through are sent to you? So much time on our hands now, use it well and take good care of yourselves. 
    • Wonder who Sky sports would employ to slate boro if Keith Andrews goes...🤔
    • As is typical of the FAI Robbie Keane signed a 4 year deal at the time that McCarthy signed a 2 year deal so he still has a contract. However it is understood that Stephen Kenny does not want him in the senior set up. Kenny wishes to work with Keith Andrews as his assistant and Damien Duff as coach.
    • Hello everyone, Hope you are all well, I see ROI have bought forward  theyu21 boss appointment as boss of senior teams to replace Mick McCarthy. Does anyone know if that means Robbie Keane also left? Cant find anything other than FA thanking Mick and his staff for they work.
