Just read the full statement. I think Christian Purslow could turn out to be one of the clubs best appointments for a long long time.
Steady on. Optimism is one thing, but the statement is no more than the usual fluff you'd expect.
I was referring to the appointments not the actual statement.

Pretty underwhelmed.
That's the spirit.

Would you rather have Brucie or Smithy

Shocked -as I didn't expect an appointment tonight- but absolutely delighted.Great pairing and I'm looking forward to the football and the reclaiming of our rightful place in the world of football.

From the Brentford statement, it looks like O'Kelly will be coming our way too as they say his position will be sorted in the next few days.

There was a stat during the Leeds game. Brentford and Leeds were top 2 on almost every relevant attacking stat you could think of. Say all you like about the structure of the club, that comes from the coaching and set up of the man picking the team. A genuinely attacking manager, I bet he is very excited looking at our forward players.

Defenders. Hmm. Huth or Collins might be in as short term fixes pretty quick still.

I particularly like that we have a head coach not a manager
I like the fact we will have any sort of coach and unlikely to be out thought by Alex bloody Neal

Brentford fan rang up talksport and said he's glad. Very overrated, conceded tons of late goals...etc etc.

Spot on. I think Deano will be using our attacking force to the full in no time. I think JT will be tasked with sorting out Bruce's defensive fuckfest with the help of Jesus.

He was Assistant Manager though (not sure how that works when you have a Head Coach instead of a Manager and you also have a separate Assistant Head Coach, but whatever...), so it's hard to see where he'd fit?

Yeh he has to be gutted sitting 7th a point outside the playoffs having just gone to 3rd place Leeds and been very unlucky not to win. Numpty.

I know he's a Villa fan. Is he from Birmingham? If so where. His wiki page says born in West Brom.
