some new quotes from Gibson. Looks like They are going to take time over this.

 

This is worrying. I read the piece in the Echo and it all sounds bit bizarre. 

 

"We grieved a little bit because we didn’t make the play-offs and we grieve because Tony has left, but we’ll be rejuvenated in a week," says Gibson. 

 

Who grieved because Tony left? Nobody on OneBoro, that's for sure. This makes it sound that everyone wanted Pulis to stay.

 

And how does "We'll be rejuvenated in a week" square with "there isn’t a timescale. The most important thing is that we get it right."

 

So irrespective of this timescale, which suggests that we might still be without a manager this time next year, we can expect a new manager within a week?

 

That sounds to me like we wanted Pulis to stay but he decided to leave.

Surely that settles this contract rubbish ‘he signed an 18 month contract and we decided not to go forward’.

 

Contract was up, no rolling contracts, no pay offs.

 

Isn’t van den brom the alkmaar manager?

 

Yes, his win% is pretty decent wherever he has been according ti wiki, but I haven’t really heard of him.

Ben Gibson credit's Woody with developing his game. So maybe he can coach.

The club will make its mind up and we'll bitch we didn't get our personal choice.

Personally I'd love Arteta but we'll see what happens UTB

It’s not what he’s saying. Him and Pulis were clearly good friends and on a personal level he’s sad about him leaving, in the next paragraph he says that both of them knew it was time for the club to look forwards:

 

“both of us were sad about the thought of not going forward, but we felt that was the right thing to do.”

I’m so genuinely excited about a team consisting at least with 3 to 5 academy lads in it. Fearless, energetic football. With a bit of experience to keep it cool. Ayala, Clayton, Saville, Britt to be complimented by some pace and attacking intent.

Plus if there's ever any controversies it would have to be called Woodgategate, which just sounds silly.

 

Especially after Southgategate

How much wood would a Woodgate wood if a wood gate would Woodgate?

Fwiw Ayala's contract is up next year so you'd think there will be a decision on his future this summer.

    • I don't even blame the majority of the people getting on the trains because most of them will be key workers. However, if we can't manage the situation better then the tube would be better off just being closed, doctors and nurses could be put up in hotels close to their place of work or taxis should be laid on.  A packed tube will be like an incubator for the virus and the situation surely can't carry on like this. Another point is that apparently the construction sites are still supposed to be working as normal in London which will also add to the passenger numbers on public transport. Why aren't the government clamping down on the construction industry?  I'm glad to have lived in a society where we have a lot of freedom but in the current situation I think the government needs to exert more control especially in London. 
    • I mean, it was a stupid ass decision to reduce the number of services in the hope it would reduce the number of people per tube. Khan is saying drivers are self-isolating or are ill themselves. Obviously the latter is unavoidable but given the scale of the tube usage, surely tube drivers should be considered key workers too? How many of them will be in self-enforced isolation who could feasibly be working? Though I'm willing to bet it's not just key workers who are using them and perhaps an alternative is to start ensuring valid reasons for travel instead of just letting anyone use them. There's potential problems with all of the solutions but the main problem as ever is the people who use them. I lived there, anyone else who has or does and has dealt with the Central Line for a short period of time, never mind the 3 years I did, will know it feels like 90% of the people going to work in the capital every day felt they were more important and more significant to the world than the people around them, the very peak of the capitalist society we live in where some people would step on their dead grandmother for an extra few bob. It gets in your bones too, it's almost beyond your control to be the same as them because you know as soon as you hold open a metaphorical door for the more vulnerable, those who are perfectly fine will capitalise on your good gesture and will never give you credit for your good deed. This virus has levelled the playing field significantly in that we are reminded about how individually, we are all important and all our individual decisions can impact so many other people. The maths is simple. If you can feasibly do so, staying at home is going to be hugely positive in delaying the spread of this virus. It's important that those of us who can, do so, in order to allow those who can't to be less at risk.
    • It's sounding most likely that the season will be completed in June/July behind closed doors.
    • We would even settle for you up front Alan with Teddy as your support striker 😂
