« on: December 18, 2016, 07:18:03 PM »

Crikey I have supported all 28. ( SGT 1 and 2 counting as two) My two favourites are the bottom two.  Remi Garde and Vic Crowe.

Misread the thread title and was almost too scared to look in case it was another Sunday tabloid scoop, and I was subjected to the same kind of horrific images presented in the Paul Jewell expose.

Would give him a B+ or A-

I think he has exceeded expectations  so far, will  take another season at  least to place us back on course  for the premiership though.

Pretty good start, particularly as it's not his squad and performances have been mediocre.

You could argue that he's playing at a lower level than many of those but you could also argue that he came into a pretty much unprecedented shit storm with something like 28 points gained from the previous 50 league matches. I think the turn around rivals the near miracle JG pulled off in his first 12 months, I still remember that fondly!
