    A foreign manager...

    Which country do oompa loompas come from?

    Steve McClaren to QPR

    Or, to put it another way, nothing worth doing was ever easy.

    Hard. But not impossible.

    The Rams on the BBC

    It’s on the stoke page, cos they’re a bigger more popular club of course: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/teams/stoke-city wouldnt take much effort just to add that link to our page. Lazy ********.

    It never happened. We went undefeated and we won the league. Won the premier league the next season, and the champions league the season after that. Didn’t loose a game for three years. Who is this West Brom you speak of?

    John Terry being John Terry

    He’s on a win/win there. He gets to lift the cup no matter who wins.

    Is this for when they meet them in the 4th round of the cup?

    Jim Smith

    Fair point. But what I meant was, there are many names being thrown into the hat at the minute. Would any be similar to how Jim Smith was seen at the time. All my memories were that I’d never heard of him. But that might be because I was a kid and didn’t really know much beyond Alex Ferguson. Or was it because he’d only ever managed at a lower level. Whats interesting is that a few lower league managers are on the list, like the Cowley brothers. But they’re all up and coming, young managers. But Smith was kind of unique cos I think his best years were, theoretically, behind him, and his best years weren’t that good. But all of a sudden he was brilliant for us, and had his best years with us. I’m kind of bringing it back to the current situation. Maybe there’s a manager that’s been bouncing around the lower leagues for all his career that might just be the one for us. Jim Smith was just such a random appointment that somehow totally worked. I love the man.

    No, I’d definitely watch that one. At the time, it was horrible to watch. But with the benefit of knowing how it all ends, I imagine I’d be excited to watch it now, excited knowing it’s the last game we’ll loose all season, excited for the games to follow, and excited to see Igor’s debut goal, knowing it marks the start of a beautiful era. If you look at it in hindsight, it really all started with that game at tranmere.

    I’ve decided, I’m not going to watch the next 3 seasons. Im just going to find every match from Jim smiths first 3 seasons in charge, and watch them in sync with the actual season, and pretend that’s our season. so when I come on here starting threads entitled: ‘Can you believe Wanchope’s amazing goal against United!?!’, you’ll know why.

    Was joe Kinear the referee?

    How good would it have been if that guy was offside! He didn’t even celebrate with Hunt, just went and ran to the crowd like he’d done something special. That’s funny.

    Is that the season we would’ve got to Europe if the floodlights hadn’t failed at pride park, meaning our game with Wimbledon was abandoned while we were winning, and we ended up drawing the replay. Or did I dream that?

    Imagine the bill you would’ve racked up last night trying to get the latest news.

    Jim Smith

    No, im not suggesting him. I’m just trying to jog my memory. I’m trying to remember what it was like when we appointed him. I was young at the time, and that season had just decided to stop support Man Utd and start being loyal to my home town and club. I really had no idea what was going on with derby, what our prospects were. I didn’t realise we were looking for manager, and I can’t remeber at all what happened to the previous manager, or even who it was. But what I do remeber is that my small pre-teen mind had no idea who Jim Smith was. Which seems quite odd to me, as he seemed to be quite old and experienced, but as far as I know he hadn’t managed in the premier league, so had never been on my radar. (But I could be wrong, my football knowledge st the time was not very extensive). Would Mick McCarthy be his equivalent today? If not, who would? (Not saying we should get whoever his equivalent is, I’m just trying to put TBE’s appointment into context).
