    Is it time for a 'Managerial Merry go round' thread?

    Where did you hear this mate? Hope it's true and someone offers him a job.

    Is it time for a 'Managerial Merry go round' thread?

    The first part, from the Oxford Mail article relates to players and coaching staff. We have a very successful academy, that we've invested heavily into, which is just beginning to bare fruit, with four or five teenagers regularly in our match day squad this season. Mous would be aware of this...

    As someone who was there, let me help you with some of the details. We won. Ipswich were very boring. The end. There you go BarrieOwl ;)

    Is it time for a 'Managerial Merry go round' thread?

    That's a fair point, regarding wanting parity with the higher paid players. Our higher paid players earn substantially more than £250,000, and I believe Portsmouth's budget is slightly lower than ours, but I don't see £100,000 cutting it, no way. There will be managers in League Two earning...

    He'll know what a job like that pays, and will expect the going rate. Our manager was on something like £250k per annum, not sure what it is now, so I'd imagine yours would be similar? Through his work as PFA Chairman he'll have a very good appreciation of salaries across many clubs, and won't...

    You think he'd take the Portsmouth managers job for £100k a year? Think again.

    Is it time for a 'Managerial Merry go round' thread?

    What makes you think he'd be cheap? We don't exactly pay our players in buttons? As he's still under contract to us, as a player, there may be some sort of compensation to negotiate too.

    Is it time for a 'Managerial Merry go round' thread?

    I was hoping Mous would be our next manager. He's a very bright bloke, speaks very well, has been on the coaching side with us for the last two or three years, got all his coaching badges (did them on the same course as the Cowleys ironically), has been captain at every club he's played for (so...

    First off, the best team on the day won, fair and square. Ipswich were the best side I've seen this season, and that was our heaviest defeat for about three seasons, so we can have no argument that it was a fair outcome. The keeper is a young Irish signing that we made in August, and this was...

    I was there, so another of your assumptions is wrong. And you really think Oxford United are the worst proponents of the dark arts???!!! You can't have seen much football if that's what you think. Anyway, it's Christmas, the time for peace and goodwill, so fuck off you inbred bumpkin.

    I don't deny that there was some "game management" at times during last season's game at Portman Road. I do deny, though, that it was anything out of the ordinary, and it certainly never started in the 7th minute, as claimed by one of your fans! I also don't remember any incidents at all in the...

    Who's celebrating? I'm merely responding to the absolute bollocks that comes out of some of your fans (you included) regarding last season's game at Portman Road. Does anybody really think that we would time waste after 7 minutes, against a team who were lower in the table than us? Here's a...

    Quaking in my boots at the thought of facing Super Ipswich on Boxing Day. That's the same Ipswich that haven't beaten us in six attempts over the last three years. Someone's getting ahead of himself..........

    Oh, here we go again, with the Oxford shithouse comments. We've played you six times since you came down, five draws and one win to us, which was at Portman Rd. Maybe, just maybe, it's been six games between two fairly even sides, with us being slightly the better? When we first came into this...
