No rush to replace Keane as Bus is coming up to full match fitness and other players available in the forward positions. Scouting is going on for loans for midfield and wingers especially and also possibly a central defender to cover Loovens loss.

Loved in Poland for 3 years.
Their league is worse than the SPL.
Hard to believe I know.

{Ed001's Note - must be bad seeing as the SPL no longer exists!!

Sorry couldn't resist that one. I must have spent too much time exposed to the Arsenal site, they love their bad jokes on there for some reason.}

Never even realised that the F had been added.
Is that to remind the punters that they are still actually watching football?

{Ed001's Note - I think it was to differentiate themselves from the Scottish Pub League, which is ranked one step above on the UEFA rankings....}

Och ma wee heed.
Was kind of tongue in cheek anyway as a few folk on here mentioned that the SPL, sorry SPFL isn't that bad.

Talking about Scottish fooball.Take a look on U Tube at the 27 goals Stevie May got for St.Johnstone. Four penalties, of the 23 others not one tackle, no bodily contact, plenty of time and space. You don't get that in Division 2. He must think the Championship is the Champions league

Oh Oh, I can smell the spelling police, and the Ofsted inspector.
I meant football not fooball.

{Ed001's Note - oh dammit, I just wasted a few hours googling fooball! I thought it was some old variant of football peculiar to the Scots, rather than peculiar likes the Scots.}

12.) 17 Feb 2015
17 Feb 2015 16:52:19
Your thinking of pooball, that's when no one wants the ball, or challenges the player with the ball. Simular to football over the border.
Anyway its worth finding to study the brilliant goal keeping, and defending. Stevie Mays Goals U Tube.

{Ed001's Note - ah sorry, I always get those two mixed up. Easy mistake to make, I am sure you will agree.}

Good news we scored 2, and Strads dud scored in open play, bad news still lost, worse news Westwood out for 2 games, might have been harsh though. SG said it is a season defining 5 games, I think it is a job defining 6 games

22.) 22 Feb 2015
22 Feb 2015 13:44:06
More chance of going down than going up now. The freaky start to the season is now well and truely over and a typical Wednesday season is now unfolding. SG must be dreading a phone call from the owner telling him to clear his desk. Fingers crossed we'll still be in this league next season. Oh and Keans still a dud in my opinion. Just one goal in open play in seven games simply isn't good enough. That would be an average of 6 goals per season.

23.) 22 Feb 2015
22 Feb 2015 14:27:23
I'd hate to have such a negative outlook on life as you do Strad. It's almost like you want us to be relegated, you were like this last year. This team is a whole lot better than last seasons team and yes we are having a bit of a rubbish run and let's be honest a bad run of injuries to key players but I think we have more than enough in this team to easily avoid relegation. But anyway, the negativity is your point of view and I know from last year you won't shake that so I will leave you with that and enjoy my positive outlook.

24.) 22 Feb 2015

Not negative just honest. I'm willing to criticize my own club if I think it's valid. I've never been one to sit on the fence and I certainly won't praise over paid under achievers that play for and represent my beloved SWFC.

27.) 24 Feb 2015
24 Feb 2015 17:49:18
Just a little question. If SG was to get the push then who would you fella's like to see in charge? A few guys at the Derby game were talking about Shearer, Di Canio or Carboni.

Hi Strad
On what basis would any of these people get the job of manager.
How long would it take do you think to install new manager, and then either motivate the rump of the present squad and after obtaining other players who could take you to a position of what you feel is satisfactory in your view, and what is that position.
Its my view we would need about 20 Million, and at that point we would be very short odds being back double quick in this league.
In my view it will take ages, and we are in for a very long haul, maybe four more seasons or more even. Who runs what in between times is academic, we will see quite a few managerial changes before it happens, what with big club, and fans expectation stuff, together with new owners and their stuff, may I suggest you settle down tighten your belt and enjoy the ride.

29.) 24 Feb 2015
24 Feb 2015 19:42:34
I would want none of those managers. If we are to swap SG for someone it has to be someone with a proven track record. All three you have mentioned are probably only good enough to be coaches at the club but definitely not manager material.

30.) 24 Feb 2015
24 Feb 2015 20:58:22
May I just remind you south owl that what I said in my previous post was that "some guys" not myself mentioned the above mentioned names. Personally I'd go for someone with a proven record in this league who's got the ability to attract the right players.

31.) 25 Feb 2015
25 Feb 2015 00:12:09
Would you care to give a few me a few managerial options then, and describe their track records for the job.
Perhaps you could also answer some of the other points I raised, so I might understand exactly what you do want, and what time scale you had in mind.
There comes a time when the balance has to change from all out frankness as you call it, to some thing more transparent in how you think the club can make improvements, and what other progress can be made, and how long it might take.
What exactly do you want from the club.
My take is sit back settle down, enjoy the ride, and think of Wednesday, and accept that only the management will manage this club.

32.) 25 Feb 2015
25 Feb 2015 02:00:51

Mark Warburton

35.) 25 Feb 2015
25 Feb 2015 09:41:04
What has Warburton achieved, nothing except the sack at the end of the season

36.) 25 Feb 2015
25 Feb 2015 10:20:12
Mark Warburton has done nothing he is nobody a flash in the pan who talks like one of the Pet Shop Boys. Come on next someone will be saying Stuart Pearce. let's look at it before last night 3 points from 21 shocking relegation form give him another chance 60 points is the minimum from now on to the end of the season.

37.) 25 Feb 2015
25 Feb 2015 17:37:36
Promotion from 2 leagues it looks like with the same club that's what he's achieved. We'd also get him at he end of the season for free. All his signings apart from the goalkeeper have been better than SG's so he also knows the market. He knows a good striker when he see's one too compared to SG.

38.) 25 Feb 2015
25 Feb 2015 18:35:03
Looks like Big Sam may be out of a job at the end of the season, along with Jurgen Klopp if they carry on losing.

39.) 25 Feb 2015
25 Feb 2015 19:09:45
Warburton is a distraction.

had we scored one extra goal per game we would be 10 points clear of the current league leaders.
Just get real and use the grey matter for a minute. Its two prolific strikers we need not back to the changing manager rubbish over the last twenty years.

Warburton loosing% 33.34
SG 35.22

40.) 25 Feb 2015
25 Feb 2015 21:32:52
35.22% compared to 33.34%? EXACTLY! That's cleared that up then!

41.) 26 Feb 2015
26 Feb 2015 08:23:11
All we need now is or me to pop in to Brentford, and let him know what you have decided.
In between times you could inspire the team and management at half time to improve the general well being in the dressing room.
That would be one way of getting rid of the out of contract players before the end of the season.
Then if you have a few minutes to spare you could motivate the crowd through the public address system. Why waste a talent like yours. Of course the down the side is you never talk about football, just desperate one liners.
What are the stats for Warburton 2012/13 2013/14 seasons any ideas, I won't hold my breath for a reply

42.) 26 Feb 2015
26 Feb 2015 09:07:20
Better than DJ and SG's combined. Next question. May I remind you football isn't a science it's a simple case of your players are good enough or they're not. Take a look at Dougie Freedman for example, shocking at Bolton but 5 wins out of 5 at Forrest. Nothing changed scientifically he simply inherited better players.

43.) 26 Feb 2015
26 Feb 2015 09:44:26
So if you are right about Friedman Strad, and I'm not disagreeing with you, its nothing to do with managers at all - its about having better players?
Well done - you've solved the problem!!
We can keep SG and just gradually get some better players.
But I thought that's what the majority of us had been saying all along?
In summary you can be the best manager in the world but if the players aren't good enough to beat the opposition regularly you won't progress.
SG has been getting our players to overperform for most of the past 12months so your solution is sack him and bring a "name" in.
There are loads of "names" out of work so perhaps they are not what you think they are either?

44.) 26 Feb 2015
26 Feb 2015 09:47:05
The only problem I have with that, the only season as a footballer in the football league, he could not get on with the manager, he walked at Watford, couldn't get on with people there, he's being pushed at Brentford, they can't get on with him. Get the drift. So you want him as manager

45.) 26 Feb 2015
26 Feb 2015 14:56:18
