    There’s no way we could finish above Southampton even with a different manager, there team is far superior to our basic bunch.
    So many think a new manager is the answer to our problems, that’s just the beginning, we badly need a revamp.

    from 2 threads back

    I agree m8, I think Pardew has done as well as could be expected under Ashley, but I do feel that he has lost the dressing room so he should now go, you here them on here about tactics and coaching as if they are all experts but most haven’t a clue what their talking about, if you look at Pardew’s time here it is as clear as day what the problem is, whenever he has had a fit squad we have played quite well, not spectacular but quite well which has seen confidence grow and get results which has seen us climb the table, that’s how we finished 5th, we were doing just as well this season but then we sold Cabaye and had 3/4 out, that’s nearly half the team and those coming in were simply just poor quality players, last season we had an injury nightmare at the start which resulted in weak teams who lost which eradicated confidence, we were poor all season.

    So if fit we are ok, but then the back up has constantly seen us drop down, then what could the problem be, obviously it has to be the back up squad, its as clear as day, but to to those on here oh no, they are all experts who know that it is down to tactics and coaching and having players Pardewed, but can they see it, can they hell, you know what it is, so many times when they mention about the coaching I state that that has got to be rubbish as Cabaye, Ba, Guthrie, even Simpson and Perch are not getting as good reports as they were under Pardew yet when I ask them to name a player who has left us under Pardew’s time here who has gone on to really improve their game under a different manager, they cannot name one, only Forster who plays for a club who is about 30 points better than the rest in that league has done anything.

    It then turns to those who we still have, Ben Arfa, the problems that that lad has now he has always had, Blanc, Dechamps, every manager who has managed him has failed, its clear as you can get what the problem is there, its him himself, every manager has failed but according to this lot he has been Pardewed, we then come to Marveaux, if they would only take the time to look back on his career they would see that he has always struggled with injuries and when he has played he has always made 1 or 2 decent passes, but that’s the lot, he has always all his career flattered to deceive, yet people will not look closely at his record and they will allow themselves to believe that he is a good player when his entire career states otherwise, but it’s like hitting your head against a brick wall.

    I’m sadly in agreement with the earlier post that Poyet is the most attractive option out there…if he wasn’t the manager of that lot anyway…

    Maybe Mackay or Bruce would be good but I feel that unless we get someone of the calibre of De Boer then we’re more likely to be changing manager again within a year than having success. We really need some stability and continuous top 10 finishes at our club to give us a base to work from.

    tds – couple of threads back you suggested the Percy sacking poll was incorrect because of some confusion. This was indeed initially the case, however this was spotted by several posters who notified Ed, and the poll was started afresh -new poll.
    Please try to keep up to speed – as you may suggest things based on errors.

    The deterioration of the team has been very difficult to watch. We are bottom 3 material for next season based on our play in the second half of this season. And some of our better players are going to leave on top of that. I don’t see how an incompetent such as Ashley will stop the slide now. The only thing that will possibly prevent relegation will be the fact that 2 of the 3 teams who come up from the Championship will probably go straight back down again so we really only have to stay out of 18th place. Sad, and I hope I’m wrong but the summer will tell the tale.

    Not cherry picked at all, just pointing out that saying Palace and Sunderland are paying a heavy price is complete BS

    Nothing to say Poyet wouldn’t be an option, by all accounts he’s away from the scum regardless of league standing

    I’m not sure if you are being serious, pedantic or with tongue in cheek…

    I noticed the poll error and I noticed it was changed. I did not, however, notice that it was restarted. I saw the new headline with the old results.

    However…whether it was or not, it’s irrelevant. As I’m sure you could tell, my comment was made in jest. I think there are many much bigger inaccuracies to pick on in this blog and you’ll have your hands full if you want to do it!

    Will Ashley change his tune again and start saying any finish of 15th and above is acceptable to him? We already know mid table is acceptable but he starts to panic when we’re around 16th like last season. That suggests that 15th or better will be just fine with him.

    I don’t see why he’d leave the mackems though…I heard that earlier on here but a quick Google shows only the Daily Mail reporting that he could leave…that unreliable, racist piece of trash that isn’t worthy to use to wipe my arse with…so I won’t believe that until I see it.

    How about a series of 12th to 15th place finishes under Ashley for the next few seasons? Sounds exciting doesn’t it mates? Well, that’s what we’ll get if we’re lucky under Ashley. The way things are headed we’ll be in the bottom 5 next season, not even 12th to 15th.

    Look you jumped in to the debate without any forethought, and now your squirming hopelessly, of all the teams that parted company with their managers three were relegated and the rest were almost relegated. So stop trying to score points as you’ve failed miserably.

    A lot of people mentioning de boer, can’t see why anyone would leave a job at Ajax , managing champs league football, better team better history – a team he has history with also .. If he were to leave I’m sure a team like spurs would be better potential suitors. A team that has ambition

    Palace and the Scum would of been relegated all day long if they haven’t got shot of there manager so are in no way paying a heavy price, that’s a complete false statement

    I strongly believe we’re grooming Nile Ranger for the manager’s position after Pards leaves us in another 6 years. Nile will be wor player manager (saves a wage) for several years and then given his ability to be a role model for wor youngsters he will be invaluable to the club in more senior positions. He can take speaking lessons from wor Joe as well to make him the perfect manager/club executive for us.

    That is Mike’s vision for the club’s future.”Achieving excellence through stupidity.” How do you say that in Latin? We’re going to have it put on blazers for all the players. Beautiful.

    If I understand the way that Ashley works, firstly he will acknowledge that Pardew has in fact hit his minimum target this season. I believe there will then be a post-season review and the decision will be made on whether Pardew stays or goes. That appears to be what happened last year. They need to decide quickly so whomever is manager can help get new players in and prepare the players for pre-season. I expect we’ll find out by the end of June at the latest.

    virtually the entire bottom 11 were in the relegation dog fight, so if you ran the current bottom 11 a a table in its self (which may well change this weekend, Stoke would be top followed by Palace and then West Ham 3rd, so 2 of the top 3 have kept there manager, every other side have changed their’s, I do believe that that proves what you were saying as being correct.

    And the problem with “lots of places” is that there are loads of sites who just rehash what they read in other media. I only really believe what I read in BBC Sport or Sky Sports, if it’s not in either of those and is somewhere else then it’s 99% rubbish.

    More Ashley quotes:
    “Football knowledge is irrelevant. Only the bottom line matters.”
    “The club is nothing more than a vehicle for the owner’s greed so piss off.”
    “Truth is only useful if you can’t get away with a lie. I learned that in court against Kevin Keegan.”
    Beautiful Mike.

    Think finishing above 10th and the apparent c0ck up over the Cabaye sale by JFK will see Pardew safe by the skin of his teeth
    Tbh that’s not how a club should be run is it?
    As far as I can tell he was given a shot at redemption this season and showed that whilst he can get us playing well when he has all his key players fit and firing he just cannot do it when you remove one of those players and our season completely imploded
    When the club has a policy of but young with high potential and sell on fee’a can you really do that with a manager who can’t adapt at the helm?

    By your calculation 8 teams in the bottom 11 have changed there managers…

    Fulham rarely moved out the relegation zone all season, changed manager, had a glimmer of hope but the damage was done before the change in management

    Norwich And Cardiff you could easily say have done more damage than good by changing manager
    But it’s been the opposite effect for Palace and the Mackems
    WBA have pretty much stayed the same

    How does that prove that changing manager costs you massively?
