I take it that Paddy Power is an Irish chap who set up a betting business? He must have won more than he lost then - something that isn’t happening to me right now.
I thought Rafa was going to be manager, then Big Sam, then Wayne. I’m not putting any more of my money into someone else’s pockets.
I might put my last pound on John Terry.
I am glad Rooney is standing down, as I want to see Sibley, Bird and Knight playing. I do hope too Rooney takes Lawrence out of the firing (misfiring) line too.
A lot of posters suggesting Rosenior is being shafted here. He’s not, as he was never a contender for the managers job (even he admitted that in the interview after Cocu left). Whilst they are both inexperienced, Rooney is/was always more likely to be considered for the full time managerial appointment because of his stellar playing career (up to the age of 30) and his media profile. Let’s get real if there is a choice between only the two, the owners are not going for Rosenior (even though he has the badges).
Rooney has two games on the touchline to show some evidence he is up to it. That is how it is for now guys. Moan all you like, but you are going to have to suck that up. If he does well, I suspect (and always have) that the full time job is his, and someone like Mike Phelan will be his number 2. If he doesn’t do well, then it would take a brave new owner to still appoint him, and then it will be looking at someone else off the interview shortlist.
Looks like a North/South divide then.
I will be interested to see how Steve Gibson reacts as Boro can't have any fans in, where Brentford can fill almost half their stadium with home fans.
Doesn't sound very fair to me.
Fairest thing would be to do what the Dutch did, just cancel the season and we'll go again next year. 👀
Idolised by millions of kids in the 80s including me.
What a player, we all know his off the field life - but the man set off the likes of Messi and Ronaldos of today, albeit with less personality than him. A complete one off.
