  2. Steve McClaren

    Rumours abound that McLaren is Mark Allan’s choice to manage Rangers next. Thread created so you can stop talking about him everywhere else.

    Maxwell has hit an unbeaten double ton in the Shield.
  4. *** The Official Cricket Thread ***

    Shaping up to be a cracking Test. Match very finely poised. Wouldn’t be surprised if Smith goes on to make a big score, but by the same token losing Marsh at the other end would expose Paine and the bowlers. Smith was brilliant today. Paine, Cummins, and Starc all capable of playing a handy innings, though. Tough to call.

  6. Why are we not doing this ?

    Aren’t we doing this in January or something?

    They could always open with Marsh and Bancroft, assume that they won’t need Warner on day 1, and play him at 7 or 8. Can’t help but feel England are making the wrong call with Ball. He’s barely played in the warm-ups and his style isn’t really suited to Australian pitches. Overton went well in the warm-ups and would have provided useful extra batting in Stokes’ absence.
  8. *** The Official Cricket Thread ***

    I wonder if he’d bat down the order or just open with restricted movement and swing for the fences.

    Australia have added Glenn Maxwell to squad as cover for both David Warner and Shaun Marsh; both of whom have picked up injuries. Seems to be more likely Marsh misses out than Warner.
  10. Tony Pulis

    This place astounds me. Some of the bizarre reasons to dismiss everyone linked so far, and then the bane our fans can unite around is Tony Pulis. My word.
  11. We concede 37.5% of our shots

    Interesting the number of people agreeing with the article rubbishing our decision to play 4-4-2 when the forum was falling over itself a few months ago begging us to switch to 4-4-2 when Warburton was in-charge.

    Appointing the paedo coach definitely cost them serious points.
  13. Mcleish

    I’m not justifying McLeish finishing 3rd to Hearts in itself, but it’s worth commenting that Hearts probably could have won the league that year if they hadn’t sacked Burley. We weakened ourselves year-on-year by replacing star players with free agents and Hearts built what was a very, very good side.
  14. Mcleish

    I thought he turned us down last time because we wouldn’t give him assurances that he’d be DOF after the Summer.

    In the Boardroom Section or the Boardroom?
  16. Alves Refuses To Be a Sub

    If that’s true then sack him for breach of contract and sue him for his transfer fee.
  17. Mcleish

    They were a newly promoted side which he took over nearly halfway through the season, when they were already struggling, then got them promoted back to the EPL the following season. Also led them to their first major honour in nearly 50 years. Hardly a disaster...
  18. Mcleish

    I don’t think that’s fair. Eck done well in the Scotland and Birmingham City jobs.
  19. Mcleish

    McLeish is commonly slated for some of his bargain basement signings, but any manager who is forced to sell his star players and replace them with free transfers is bound to pull out a few stinkers...

    Is your Da Rfc51?
  21. Tony Pulis

    The win % types won’t like this.
  22. Players we nearly signed...

    Wasn’t Van Nistelrooy close at one point as well?
  23. Mcleish

    Paddy Power will have taken the betting down because they will have received multiple bets in quick succession on it. Suspend the market to prevent loss of money while the odds are being adjusted.
  24. Derek McInnes

    You basing that on your thorough knowledge of GVB as a manager?
  25. Michel Preud'homme

    He left Bristol City four and a half years ago. Given he’s been successful since, is it not possible that he’s grown/improved as a manager?
