Can a mod replace the title with the correct spelling (after all I didn't start this is as a separate thread)

Chris Haslam is one of the reasons why we are one of, if not the fittest teams in League 1...he was usually the guy that did all the pre-match warm ups with the cones too. I guess fitness coaches are relatively easy to come by but I'd be miffed if he was heading up to Wigan given I believe it was MW that hired him and not Uwe. Surely they must have one or two decent PTs up north?

Quote from MW today:

“However, such departures serve to illustrate our strength in depth from a staffing perspective.

“James Purdue will now step up to work alongside Tom Perryman in overseeing the conditioning requirements of the First Team squad.

“This is a great chance for James and I know he is good enough.

“I have seen already in training that Tom and James will be a good team.

“The players have trained well and reacted well to them and I have no doubt the good work done over the past few years will continue.

What good news to hear from the man himself, I would imagine that there is no need to worry, BFC now appear to have every position in the club covered for all eventualities, That's great organisation, Oh how we have changed!!

I was listening to 5Live last night, in the aftermath of West Ham's humping at the Etihad, and they were speculating on Allardyce's future (not surprisingly).

Anyhow, one of the points made by the Pundit (sounded like Le Saux?) was that the club will be reluctant to sack him not just for the huge compensation he will be due personally, but that when he arrived, he installed a huge team of specialists (Coaches, Sports Scientists, Analysts, Nutritionists etc) as well. And since they are "his" people, and will almost certainly not be wanted by any new Manager, the compensation bill to get rid of them would also be huge.

I must say, whatever else Gold/Sullivans/Brady are, I wouldn't have expected them to allow themselves to get into such a "damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't" situation with Allardyce.

Which is why it is vital that the structure is built by the Football Club (Sporting Director) and not the Manager, it goes back to this continuity thing.

He's held in very high regard AFAIK so I'm not surprised Uwe went after him. Disappointing to lose him.

Until he leaves of course then it is exactly the same type of situation.

Gone to join that nice ever so loyal ex manager. Of course he wouldn't cast his covetous eye on any of our players or staff cos he's such a great guy and so so grateful to Brentford.
Oops there I go again.

Hopefully Haslem is the first and the last from Brentford to join Rosler during this transfer window.

Hopefully it's just me but we seem to have become more prone to niggling injuries and certainly lacking the levels of intensity we used to have since he left? Meanwhile, in the past month or so, Wigan have been scoring hatfuls of goals in the last quarter of games. To my knowledge, he hasn't been replaced by anybody but a caretaker yet. FWIW I think he could be a greater loss to our project than Uwe.

Ffs now the wobble is down to the conditioning coach. The GPG never ceases to amaze me after a bad (ish) result or two.

You're right...it's just you. Look at the injuries at the start of the season. Look at the team we fielded at Bradford. These things happen to every team (even Wigan)

James Purdee and Tom Perryman are in charge now, they were in charge of conditioning with the academy when I was there.

Were you in decent condition? Or can we blame them for not scoring today?

I posted on another thread at the time that I thought he would be a bigger loss than Uwe.

The team do tire earlier in games and we are picking up injuries in training.

Denying these facts is to ignore the obvious.
