  • bring back rep

  • Only time will tell but I'm not jumping up and down at this one...

  • Spurs away first game back in the PL. Reasonably kind fixture list overall.

    Now just need to buy a new squad...

  • that video of klopps first 6 minutes as a champions league winning manager, where the camera follows him from the final whistle

    what a manager

    as ts puts it i think i've got something in my eye

  • get to see who we could have brought with grealish in town..
    just re-upped my membership so might be able to get a ticket for it..

  • Apologies for the spam interjection. Last time I'll do this.

    I have two spare Arsenal season tickets available for next season. Sat next to each other in the North Bank. Available at face value. PM if you know anybody who'd be interested.

  • Bilic to West Brom!
    Mmhhh

  • didn't think you would be.
    Not sure why you got rid of Darren Moore to be honest.
    Do you really need a "big" name to manage you, and get you into the Premier League?

  • Bilic didn’t have it easy at West Ham, Sullivan was always meddling with any transfers which always meant one hand was tied behind his back.
    His first season we finished 7th but it’s fair to say a fair whack of that was down to Payet.
    His 2nd where he was the first season at the new stadium where many would have struggled I believe.
    Anyway, many Irons still hold him in high regard and I’d like to see him get a fair crack of the whip with the board behind him, so I wish him well at WBA*.

    *If he signs Byram to take him off our books that’d be grand.
    **Sign Oxford too as I’d love to see how capable he is in the English game rather than disappearing to Germany.

  • Sarri to Juventus - I didn't know you could do loan deals for managers?

  • Sarri to Juventus is costing £5 million in compensation. And once Chelsea have paid that they are, apparently, paying Derby a further £4 million for Fat Frank.

  • Juve are paying the £5m, not Chelsea.

  • Juve are paying the £5m, not Chelsea

    Unlikely. Chelsea are relieved from their contractual obligations (Conte cost £9 million to get rid of) and off loading a failed manager. Why would Juventus pay to take on a fag munching retired bank manager. No. Chelsea are paying them to take him off their hands. Best deal of the summer.

  • off loading a failed manager

    Genuine question: do you expect better than a third place finish and a trophy next season?

  • Paging Derby £4m for Lampard who they can’t really afford seems odd.

    I’m assuming Jody Morris will come as part of the same deal.

    Should I be excited to have ex players and academy coach leading our first team? The CL and PL are a big step up for both of them.

  • I’d expect us to finish outside the top 4 and not get out of the CL group stage.

    Probably playing some decent football and giving more game time to academy players until our transfer ban is over.

  • Genuine question: do you expect better than a third place finish and a trophy next season?

    Football played with belief and passion. Football played with the same commitment that supporters have. Football played with a desire to win.

    We finished 20-30 points behind the top two. Almost closer to relegated clubs. The only reason we were third is that Arsenal, Tottenham and ManU screwed up.

    We lost 4-0 to Bournemouth and 6-0 to City. We eere 2-0 down in a cup game to Man U with 10 minutes to go and we substituted a right back for a right back. We gave up.

    We played better more enjoyable football in Div 2 in the early 1980s.

  • Everybody finished 20-30 points behind the top two. They were miles better than anyone else this year and it showed.

    Your other points may be valid.

  • The question included “better than a third place finish”. The answer is not missing out on second by a chasm. That is, I am confident, a valid point.

    In the meantime, Fat Frank is in talks with Derby about a contract extension.

  • A new manager isn't going to help close that gap.

  • Who’s on your wish list for next manager Mr. o?

  • He may close the gap between the supporters and the club. That would be a start.

    Sarri took the club backwards on the pitch and far backwards off the pitch.

  • Not really into such speculation.

  • So you can't admit you want Benitez back...
