Time For Change

Only the disaster prone Mike Ashley could contrive to offer a permanent contract to a caretaker manager right as the wheels threaten to come off our season. Chris Hughton's a likeable man who's done better than most of us expected, but he's no more likely to take us up on our unwanted owner's terms - and let's not beat about the bush here, he's getting the job because he's cheap and grateful enough to do whatever he's told - than a cricket nightwatchman is to score a double hundred in a Test Match.

what are the chances that he won't be in the job come May? Not because Moat/Shearer will come in but once the wheels start falling off for real, Ca$hley will go and, in his eternal stupidity, try to find a "proper" manager to save our season who will get the job for the last 7 games, and then, in the summer, when we're still hanging around the Championship, will be offered to job on a perman....
ahhh, F**K!!! pinch me.

Come on guys, we've had a few indifferent results, that's all. It's this binary thinking that's sending us all mad. Either we're on the crest of a wave or down in the trough. We need a sense of proportion.

That's true for some, Garry, but our good start to the season was only ever going to last if Ashley sold up and we got a proven manager in with cash to spend.

If Ashley stays, the trough it is. Even in his own words, his "best is woefully short".

I sure don't want to be negative and I'm trying hard to find that sense of proportion but the part that always gets me is that (as yesterday proved) we keep hanging around top of the table (despite our .. performances) and if we do that long enough it leeds (sic) to the hope that we'll go straight up again. Yesterday's 3 points were mostly down to luck, and once that runs out we find out where we really belong. I just don't want to start believing in promotion as long as long as that fat git is still ruining our club.
