Absolutely, no point in a football forum if you can't bollocks about football.

I don't think it's a sudden change, but rather a hunch based on the available, or lack thereof, evidence.

It's what football fans do.... all part of the fun.

Ah yes, I forgot this was "fun". You and your constant japes Reggie.

Ah well, we should find out by Wednesday. Brown and Power have a meeting Tuesday.

I honestly can't think of any reason why he will not be given the job full time - unless Power already has a replacement lined up.

1 win in 9? I know it's not his team and all that, but still, it's not that hard to think of a reason.

Wages, length of contact, next season's budget...

Lots of reasons

I had been in favour of writing off the end of the season and giving Brown a chance, but his recent press releases where he basically is shifting blame from him to the players and pretty much publically slagging off players etc has left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth.

I'm now thinking it may be time for a fresh start, new manager, new players new beginning.

Great Western Reds can then use that banner again.

For that reason alone we should change manager at least as often as Leeds do

See, I'm thinking he's right and half this squad are bottling fucktrumpets who are just picking up a wage without giving a toss. He went up in my estimation for saying what I've been thinking for months.

I hear what you are saying, but is it professional airing it in public? Not sure if there is much to gain from it to be honest?

I like it, we’ve missed someone slagging the players off since Andy King.

If you exclude Di Canio and Flitcroft, then yes.

I absolutely see where you are coming from.

I'm not sure whether to interpret it as you have done, or whether its public posturing to let 'people' know that
  1)  to the deadwood/less committed players, making any future life under Brown would both be unpleasant and futile to stay.
  2)  to Power that investment in the squad is needed and is an expectation of any upcoming negotiations*

* obviously picking up the phone and talking to him has probably happened already..

Then again, it might just be Brown's way.

All great points batch, and can't really argue with anything that you have said.

All managers have different styles and as you say, it could be the way he operates. Clearly it hasn't worked with this group of players but who is to say it won't with an entirely new group?

Dunno, lets suck it and see I suppose.

And this...

“Ollie Banks won’t play on Saturday. He’s gone back to his parent club. He opened up and said that the players in the dressing room let me down” added Brown.

Well if that is the case then the troubles within must have been deep down and simmering long before Brown took the reigns, which may explain why Flipflop flipped off, he probably saw what we have ended up achieving (fuck all in reality) coming.
