Almost the entire CB roster appears to have fallen off a cliff. Part of that is because we can't find a 2nd (some might say first) proper DM to play in the middle. Imagine my surprise that without any sort of base we can't get a tune out of our more attacking element. I'm going to completely ignore this though and blame the manager for not having things look nice. It's who I am.

I guess if you think Hodgson is now doing badly, then the same pattern should mean the next is good, if Hodgson is still doing a relatively good job, then the next in the pattern is a Warnock or de Boer


This rendering the whole exercise a load of subjective twaddle.

They did in one of the early games together. Think it was against Spurs. They were really showing for each other and it looks extremely exciting. But since that game it hasn’t really happened again.

I could not agree more with your first paragraph, but in fairness to RH as the manager he has a duty that he can only choose players that warrant it on what he sees in training and their attitude, and for me Batshuayi has been a shadow of the player he was last season.
And this is coming from someone who is a big fan of his style of play and was calling for him to be signed in the summer as a must signing, but we cant fail to be disappointed from what we have seen to date, why his drop in form and even commitment since returning is a mystery, is it all down to RH i am not so sure.
What is a pity is seeing a good player which he is, going to waste and where he heads this summer will be interesting to see..

If we can’t get Dyche I think Steve Kean could be a decent option. Lots of experience and has managed abroad too

Roma manager all day long if we are to progress. Howe or Dyche if we are to brush with relegation. Lampard could go either way. Dougie replaced by someone with football connections such as Roy if we are not to end up with old crocks and players not up to it such as Jach or not ready to challenge (winger in Scotland rather than on the bench)

Agree, just didn't work out in the long run. Even with Warnock when you consider he was chucked in at the deep end at the 11th Hour. He was never a permanent position and more of a favour until SP could get who he really wanted which was Pardew. Warnocks job was to keep us in striking distance until pardew became available. Therefore I think we've done well with managers and they've all contributed.

Except FDB

The latest drivel from Football Insider:

Sources: Parish plan for Crystal Palace revealed and this is what it means for Celtic appointment

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has targeted Eddie Howe as he wants to change the mindset of the dressing room and play more a more expansive style, Football Insider has learned.

The former Bournemouth boss is on a three-man Palace shortlist and has held discussions with Palace about succeeding Roy Hodgson.

A Palace source has told Football Insider that Parish is leading the search for a potential successor to Hodgson and believes Howe has a lot to offer.

The chairman admires Hodgson’s skill in comfortably guiding Palace to mid-table safety in four consecutive seasons.

But he wants to alter the mindset of players fixed on playing one way, tweak the system and implement a more attractive playing style.

Parish believes that Howe could be the man to do both those things and that’s why he’s on his three-man shortlist along with Burnley boss Sean Dyche and Frank Lampard.

Dyche, who is the leading contender along with Howe, is regarded as a very safe pair of hands with many similar attributes to Hodgson.

Celtic have been caught in the middle of the Palace manager search, with in-demand Howe also a possible target for Brighton, with Graham Potter’s position by no means secure.

It is understood Howe reached a verbal agreement with Celtic following talks in London but has since had second thoughts.

With Howe’s representative stating he will not return to management until the summer, Celtic have approached former Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre as an alternative option.

Top clubs north and south of the border are lining up their options as the managerial merry-go-round prepares to go into full swing at the end of the season.
