Wanderers Ways - passion not fashion

Recommended Posts

I’ve no particularly strong feelings either way on Hill’s interviewing technique, and I’m struggling to think of a previous manager who has faced so much attention on the subject other than Dour Dougie. Yeah he does sound to be a bit off the wall but I think that’s just his general style and isn’t likely to be changing any time soon. 

As for the game, Hamilton was absolutely outstanding and I just hope he can keep up that level of performance. Did a good job of looking for the ball in midfield, worked hard defensively and was really good going forward. Hopefully he’ll be even better in attack when he’s got Lowe protecting behind him. 

Was a little bit worried about Toto initially being part of the three but he looked solid enough and certainly won’t be facing a player of Wilbraham’s physicality every week. On the subject of whom, I know this is said whenever we play Rochdale every other week, but he looks a good stone and a half lighter than when he played for us. 

Overall, we’ve had one cleared off the line, hit the woodwork twice, forced a few decent saves and lost to a defensive error and a deflection. I’m not normally one to bemoan luck, but fucking hell when are we going to get a break?

Sadly so do I thin end of the wedge this    And he can fuck off with this “keep putting my neck on the line”, like he’s doing us a favour. I must’ve missed it when He turned down Madrid an

Read Hills comments and while he may be taking some of the social media muppets to heart hes basically right. There was one mon on after Burton saying we should be beating these at home! Not any more

Thing is Keith lad, we ain’t Rochdale or Barnsley.  Aye, we’re in the shit but, rightly or wrongly, we’re always going to have high expectations. Your fucking job is to try and get near thos

If Iles has got anything about him it’s the first question you ask him “Whose not on the same page Keith”

I wouldn’t be happy if he worked for me and doubt FV will be too pleased

I think he did, skim reading twitter, and Hill's first response was "the press".

Frustration and disappointment getting the better of KH, not done himself any favours today

No need to sink to this level, he’s giving 110% and being hampered by injuries,suspensions, players mistakes, lack of funds, available players all those things out of his control

With today’s game at 1-0 we could have got an equaliser, a draw would have been a big boost but a defeat has hit him hard, needs to go for a few pints and start again on Monday

I think he will turn it round

How to lose friends and alienate people volume 2. 

Correct what shit has he actually had to put up with from the press fans and players up to now don’t know what he is going on about  ?  if you’re getting beat every week there is going to be criticism . Having long term plan is great but you need to be competitive now also

There's echoes of what people were saying about KA when he first arrived in your post. The thing is, sometimes it's better not to be "interesting".

Ouch. Heaven forbid!

Just a thought. We're not really talking about the defeat, the shit defending for the first goal, the space we gave their number 7 to boss the midfield, the lack of the final ball... It's all discussion on the manager being a wanker or not.

Is Keef the master of deflection? :shiftyninja:

I fail to see how this is a good distraction as it's just alienating people further and making people doubt his ability to handle the pressure. But to answer you're question - no, he isn't.

This is who he is. He shoots from the hip. People will either accept that and get on with it or take issue with it. It seems to me they're doing the latter.

Not any more pal (forgetting our shit record against them anyway) teams like burton and rochdale have been building over a number of seasons, have stronger squads and are not operating under our current restrictions.  We have no automatic right to beat clubs we have looked down on in the past. Its present now and we need to give manager and new owners time. Yes im worried but we are in the shit and need to stop looking back. Them days have gone 

In one. Overused phrase, but we are where we are. We've no right to turn up and beat anybody in this league, when we're on our second go at cobbling together a team since August 31st. Those of us with long enough memories will recall us being lower than this before

That's the line that did it for me as well.

Can't listen to his interviews so not sure exactly what he's said but if he's aimed any flack at the fans of whom 2,500 turned out to watch the team that's bottom of the league & backed them to the hilt then this will get very Megsonesque very quickly... I hope this isn't the case.

We’ve thousands turning up home and away who know we’re most likely to lose, spoke to loads of lads today no one thought we’d win, if Hill reads the odd harsh remark on social media and thinks that’s what we’re all thinking he needs to wise up and get a thicker skin.

Well no idea what to make of that?
We played far better than expected and didn't deserve to lose, however...

Went wi mi Dad who knows far more about football than I ever will, played in reserves in the 60s with some proper players...

He is also a little more subjective than me,  his take was man for man Rochdale had no better talent than we did, however they were drilled and knew what style of play was expected of them. And we didn't!

KH is getting defensive because he should be getting more from the resources he has had at his disposal!

And finally, Murphy is fucking gash, yes he can score but adds absolutely nothing to the team. He is no target man tat is for certain!

Bang on.

Just had a right old rant on radio manc KH ... Proud of players, Nobody at bolton on same page , sick of hearing about last time in league 1, sick of being criticised and putting his neck on line , stop comparing him with sam allardyce and Phil Parkinson , he knows his onions , we are living in past etc etc etc

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/live:bbc_radio_manchester  17:37 -17:41

If KH's rant is aimed at the fans, it's a fucking insult to every single person who went today and backed them to the hilt.

Our support has been magnificent this season - that's what he should be saying.

If he starts trying to create an "us and them" situation between the management/players v the fans, then i fear for his future.

A striker that can score, but adds nothing to the team?

Really?

He's 36 and banging them in as well as anyone has for us in recent times. In a fairly poor side. What more do you expect of him?

Perhaps if we played it on the floor a bit more like we did earlier in the season then he'd bring others in more often.

All things considered, he's been the best loan/freebie of the lot.
