This is it. The change will probably cost them four or five points in the short term, but they’re still a good squad and the right appointment could get them ticking for the playoffs.

Frankly any one of Boro, Derby, Stoke, Villa, Swansea or maybe even Forest should be doing better given the money they've spent. The fact that they all look to be out of the hunt for the top two already suggests they've all got hard questions to ask of their players and staff.


Imagine what Bielsa would have done with any of those teams, given a proper summer's prep.

Agree with your point but Who ?
The who being the management replacement for Moore
I can't really think of an available replacement.

Jokanović or Wagner apparently. Both fairly good shouts I reckon.

The thing is, it’s all about the play-offs for them now. The new manager gets a few matches to work out what needs changing and then they head into the play-offs all systems go. I actually think it’s worth the gamble. Nowt against Moore but they probably should have pissed this league with that squad.

It’s sad but the price of the top level game. It’s a dead cert that the board have had more than half an eye on the available top level coaches. IMO Wagner is a good coach.
Because a thing seems difficult for you, do not think it impossible for anyone to accomplish.

Thoroughly decent bloke and deserved to see the season out.

They should be top 2 on squad but so should Villa and especially Stoke.

He is WBA to the core, disloyal tossers deserve to fail now.

If it turns out to be Mickey A., that's a sign to us from the Gods.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Scholes lasted 31 days at Oldham, that's 1 fewer than Milanic survived Cellino.

ha, FFS.

if scotland want to ever have a quarter-decent team again, being, as they are, a smallish country of 5m people, in the main blessed with neither favourable genetics nor disposition towards healthy lifestyles, they [i don't know who i mean by 'they' - government? professional clubs?] needs to be putting in serious cash to coaching kids, every boy with even a smidgen of talent needs to be putting serious hours in, it needs to be a cultural thing, y'know, 'scotland the country of footballers'. england are no great shakes of course but at an elite level [only] the coaching is probably moving in the right direction, & population factors can definitely mask a multitude of other things, i.e. having ten times as many people as the jocks do kind of helps, as does, without wishing to come across as a sinister LSOE style racial theorist, having a large net flow of immigrants including from some parts of the world where certain types of athleticism are more common.

Jock fitba is a basket case and is beyond the reach of human intervention.
It is the perfect storm.
A terrible climate which renders grass pitches unplayable for almost the entire season.
An unwillingness to take measures to address the underlying problems.
Given to appointing eejits tae top jobs .
Culturally conditioned to a lifestyle incompatible with sporting excellence, result in being unable to compete at a high level in the 21st century.
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.
