I guess someone had to start this:

Macclesfield Town have appointed former England and Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Tim Flowers as their new manager.

The 53-year-old, capped 11 times by his country and a Premier League winner with Rovers, has been out of work since leaving Solihull Moors in January.

He replaces head coach Mark Kennedy, who left following the Silkmen's relegation to the National League.

'Pleased to confirm...' you only put 'pleased' when you're not that fussed about it lol 'Delighted to confirm' is the one you use when it's an exciting appointment, which I don't even think they think he is...

Probably means relief that the Interpol checks and work permits have finally all come through....

In the wrong
Reading must have decided to apply our logic to their manager.

Where we sign players most of us have never have heard of they have decided to apply the same logic to the manager

New guy getting his admin sorted before the season starts....must be a cool head having been at Chicago Fire...
Was in someone’s company on Saturday when Mark Bowen called for advice on Paunovic, no surprise to hear that he has decided to stay well clear of the new appointment at Reading

Yep. Think he’ll be the first to go in the Championship..... Bilic first in the prem.
Agree. There can't be many teams that got promoted to the prem in a worse run of form than WBA had in their last few games. And with hardly any gap between last season and this, they seem to have continued it, without addressing weaknesses in the transfer market. I honestly think they'll do well to get 20 points this season.

And an early exit from the Carabao Cup.

Despite the obvious hatred of the River Rats, and hopefully looking forward to another season of struggles for them, I genuinely fear for the mental well-being of Scott Parker.
Following his post play-off final "Dry Your Eyes" soliloquy (https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&s...BMAF6BAgJEAY&usg=AOvVaw0C4JxIj70jGT8vBonauEfm)

He was at it again in an odd MOTD interview following their defeat to Leeds yesterday......

"Former Huddersfield manager David Wagner has been sacked by German Bundesliga side Schalke after defeats in the first two games of the season.

The losses continue a miserable run that leaves Schalke without a win in their past 18 league games.
They lost 8-0 to champions Bayern Munich last weekend and 3-1 to Werder Bremen on Saturday.

Wagner, 48, joined Schalke in 2019 after more than three years in charge of the Terriers."

Rooney waiting in the wings !
If you watch the Blackburn goals from Saturday there were a couple where WR was only jogging back, instead of haring back to try to help.

And say what you like about him, but he doesn't normally lack for effort.

Maybe he's "downed tools" with the rest of them?

Of course, I doubt he's got the necessary badges to qualify for the main job just yet but knowng the sh*tehawk who owns that club, maybe he's been given a whisper about being an "Assistant" to some short-term replacement for Cocu?

Alternatively his legs might just have gone, he’s nearly 35, and regularly haring back to defend would take him out of the game.

Whoever comes and goes in the manager position it is still very funny seeing that club in particular imploding and bouncing around the bottom of the table with no points so far.

You do wonder how Wayne Rooney must feel being there though...he's surely asked himself that a few times.

I had Derby down to do well this year, with them having adapted to Cocu's style and the fact that they brought in the personnel in January to suit him. But it just isn't happening at all this year. I know they lost a couple of players but I can't find much of an excuse for 3 losses from 3, especially given that they were expected to take points in all of them!

Them and Forest have certainly not done their managers any favours...

I see Bam Bam was having a go at Fulham's owners yesterday:

Fulham boss Scott Parker says vice-chairman Tony Khan's Twitter apology for the performance in Monday's 3-0 defeat by Aston Villa was "disappointing" and "not helpful".
Parker 'disappointed' by Khan apology

I'd guess that's "not helpful" for his employment prospects...

wonder how strong sheffield united board are no wins in 7
You can probably ignore the last 3 games of last season when Wilder greatly exceeded all expectations. Also the defeat to Burnley on pens in the Lge Cup this season.

The only 3 which count are the 3 x PL defeats this season. And while a 2-0 and two x 1-0's must be worrying, they're hardly catastrophic.

I think Sheff U "overperformed" last season because they were new and fearless but they won't have those advantages this season, so may struggle.

But if they should, they'll surely find no better man to deal with it than Wilder.

In any case the fans would burn down the Boardroom if they were to sack him prematurely.

They’ve had the Brentford 2 of the back 3 missing. General lack of depth back there. Perhaps they should buy Tarks and complete the set? They certainly spend enough on ‘strikers’ who don’t score in the PL.

Tbey always say that the second year is a lot tougher than the first.

It would be nice to find out.

Excellent. They'll probably now jerk their knees towards someone more expansive and we can look forward to results other than 0-1.
