    If McClaren was on the Voice and no judges chair turned he would still think he was through #nufc

    Who have you got in mind? Name our quality defenders and goalscorers.

    Never mind the Stavers brothers. You’re too embarrassed to admit your alter ego on the other blog.

    Taking everything into account……. That was garbage and mcclaren has to go if we stand any chance of staying up.

  • 4 JackButler // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:25 PM

    If I was Ashley I’d already be on the phone to Moyes and Rogers as SM is lost and out of his depth

    What a joke of a club…

    PPl turning a blind eye, and leaving Ashley out of this is a success testament to the man, how he fooled you are.

    “Hey I spent the money” No Ashley you donated money to a charity which does not exist anymore, the charity was 2 CB and a LB.

    He gives two BAFOONS the jon of managing the club and wonders how its not working. An old fart scout, a yes man second hand car salesman, and a fast-food chain manager to train the talentless footballers.

    The whole thing is a farce. So many hope we go the championship route so all the misery will be cut short. If he does not react tomorrow and not sack an Idiot of a manager, I hope we go to league 4.

    Smiled his way through it once again with his best “I’m just happy to be here” face.


  • 7 croftus5678 // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:27 PM

    mit and doum need to start together ffs as 1 striker is just too much alone with no support !

    lb is screwed without hairdryer or dummet who can only do a job imo so we may aswell play without a lb imo although colback may do a job who knows.

    and cb !!! only reliable one is mbemba with our next imo being dummett ! theres no pace at all even lescalles is as slow as !

  • 8 Fabricio - out of position - Coloccini // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:29 PM


    There’s absolutely no guarantee that Ashley would bring in a better manager. That’s true.
    But then again… we never thought he would use as much money as he did the last two windows.

    Ultimately it’s Charnley/Carr and Ashley ofc that has put us in this mess. They have to do something totaly different. I’m not confident McClaren can turn this club around.

  • 9 gorgonzola ( former Pecorino former to gorgonzola) // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:31 PM


    You see you are not Ashley and you have common sense and a brain who has a predisposition for survival.

    Ashley is a coward who is so hell bent on not going back on his principle it will be the death of this club.

    What a c@nt

    manxpie // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:26 PM


    he ain’t in charge of transfers tho is he?
    i think that has been proven over ashley’s whole time here
    plus perez didn’t do that well when he got his chance either
    our problem is we don’t have a top striker simple as that we gambled on mitro hiiting the ground running and also the defence

    i’m sure if you asked any manager in the world they’d say they wanted at least 2 players for each posistion
    ashley getting away with it again!!!!!

  • 11 JackButler // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:33 PM

    Ashley spent all that money to remain in this league, not out of the goodness of his heart and some new found desire to succeed, so I doubt he will sit back and allow all that money to get washed away by us being relegated with SM at the helm

  • 12 reilly // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:34 PM

    what alter ego i posted on there a few times when you were having a mental break down with your brother,which i found funny and rather sad as it shows not much brain cells between yous.
    and what i seen on there you are doing the same on here going on days long rants about stuff you havent got a clue about and never admiting you are wrong.

  • 13 manxpie // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:35 PM

    fab but that is only because he has had to
    not for any other reason especially ambition!
    plus btw they are all investments
    lets see if he wants to throw money away in sackings and a new manager that could also be gone by the end of the season

  • 14 beermonkey // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:37 PM


    cheers for the info

  • 15 JackButler // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:37 PM


    It’s been reported that it was SM that wanteded Colo to stay, SM that pushed for Townsend and Shelvey, so I think he does have some say on who we sign, but even if he has zero say on transfers his tactics are wrong, playing a high line with Colo and Saylor is suicidal, not demanding a centre half and left back when there’s money to spend is suicidal.

    The club is rotten from top to bottom but retaining SM will only see us relegated, there is still a chance to survive but for that SM has to be replaced asap

    “i’m sure if you asked any manager in the world they’d say they wanted at least 2 players for each posistion
    ashley getting away with it again!!!!!”


    Make no mistake this is ally Ashleys doing….

    Penn pinching over summer. The team should have been overhauled MASSIVELY. It was not, no way near.

    January once again panic buys with no direction and sense.
    Keegan was correct like I have been saying since the day he left. Nobody listened, furthermore he was mocked for wanting quality players in the club.

  • 17 belgrade fan // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:39 PM


    ti se jos nerviras zbog ovix luzera. koji katastrofa klub, menadzer koji ne moze da pobedi ni moju babu ali ga nece smeniti nikad

  • 18 reilly // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:39 PM

    if your looking for a good wizard to set kodi up for you i can point you onto some good ones.
    happy to help

  • 19 manxpie // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:40 PM

    pearson is the only manager that would come here i feel under all the circumstances

  • 20 gorgonzola ( former Pecorino former to gorgonzola) // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:42 PM


    Jebem im mater bre.Kako ih nije sramota. Ja ovo ne razumem majke mi mile. Kao da se vodi Zeljeznicar a ne top 20 klub ovo sveta.

    Ovaj debeli gazda je totalan trobil. Nemogu da ga gledam. Iskreno se nadam da ce da odu u drugu ligu da mu se smejem kako je popusio 90 miliona funta.

  • 21 manxpie // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:43 PM

    ok jack with who seriously?
    this was our answer a year ago remember?

    who this time and more importantly who would come?

  • 22 edtheduck // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:43 PM

    Watching here in Canada and the thing I find bizarre is it’s the same 11 and same formation week in, week out… Schteeeeevie doesn’t vary a thing and yet he expects different results… what’s that definition of insanity again? Go grab Paul Clement right now, tonight and lets use the 18 days “off” wisely… still think we have enough “quality” aka there are 3 worse teams and winnable home games to say up but c’mom man sort it out!

  • 23 JackButler // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:44 PM


    Moyes or Rogers

  • 24 manxpie // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:45 PM

    gary neville in the shit again he’s another option for our ridiculous powers that be
    and tbh it wouldn’t surprise me

  • 25 manxpie // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:47 PM

    do you think they would come into this pressure cooker with 12 games to go or hold out for a better oppertunity?
    i know wat i would do if i was in there shoes

  • 26 belgrade fan // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:48 PM


    pa kad lik postavi mentola da void klub a ovaj drugog mentola trenera. Levi bek atletiko madrida xoce da dodje oni mu kazu da je zamena za nekog Dumeta koji je truba total. trener koji ne zna da mu fali centralni bek. idiotski klub total

  • 27 JackButler // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:49 PM

    Yes I do, as neither would have anything to lose, we are expected to go down

  • 28 belgrade fan // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:50 PM

    the best thing on the world is that Atletico Madrid LB wanted to come here but McIdiot told him he will be just a sub for a Dummet. but Dummet

  • 29 manxpie // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:52 PM

    the thing is we know and everyone else knows we aint got a great goal scorer or great defensive options

    and new managers will look at that especially good ones so all we can hope for is desperate managers
    thank fusk warnock has just got a job

  • 30 gorgonzola ( former Pecorino former to gorgonzola) // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:53 PM

    “Levi bek atletiko madrida xoce da dodje oni mu kazu da je zamena za nekog Dumeta”

    Jebo majku tacno to. Pazi to ti je kao da hoce da dodje Jon Teri i da mu ovaj celavi kaze, Colo je starter to si za sada zamena….

    Jebote ne zna se ko je gluplju fuj.

    Nemogu vise sada samo cekam da ispadnu i da mu se smejem.

  • 31 belgrade fan // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:55 PM

    ma isto su oni I uradili sa ovimiz Valensije, Orban, zamisli reprezentativcu Argentine da kazes da je zamena za DUmeta jebenog koji se plasi lopte. Onaj Mbabu 55 puta bolji, decko ima texniku, brzinu, sut, ali McRetard ne menja nista, idiot komplet od coveka

  • 32 Lanzatoon42 // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:56 PM


  • 33 Mag52 // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:57 PM

    If we do go for another manager as a final throw of the dice, for me it would have to be Pearson, with a second choice of Clement.

  • 34 manxpie // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:57 PM

    ofcourse they’ve got something to lose a relegation on there CV

    look at moyes for instance an absolute god when he was at everton and now a nobody even though his record isn’t as bad at man u minus spending an extra £250,000 mill as gaal has

  • 35 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Feb 13, 2016 at 8:59 PM

    At least Villa is worse than us…for now!

    So if McC cannot change this around and Charnley has had his chance to do his. Then what? Will Ashley do what needs to be done? Removing McC is the easy part…it’s what comes after.

  • 36 banjax // Feb 13, 2016 at 9:12 PM

    Enough of this crap. McLaren out. Never mind packing his bags to Spain, Ashley needs to pack his bags out of the door – permanently. He has had every chance to put things right – time to go !

  • 37 jayc51093 // Feb 13, 2016 at 11:24 PM

    Get rid of the donkey maclaren and bring de boer or even Brendan Rodgers in, someone with a proven record, or anyone that can motivate a team because the current regime haven’t a bloody clue.
