    Florian Jozefzoon - Signed on a 3 year deal

    Can definitely confirm this - I went to an event back in the eighties where Bob Monkhouse was the after dinner speaker. Wasn't expecting the fantastically funny 40 minutes or so that he did and he built in some really good personal stuff - a true professional. E.g. Talking about local dialects ' I haven't really got an accent although most of my colleagues think I'm a Man of Kent - at least I think that's what they're saying as I walk out of their office'...

    Didn't know that - just that whenever I've see Canos play admittedly on tv seems to have loads of potential possibly the sort of player FL and team could improve

    If we're going to sign anyone from Brentford I'd prefer it to be Canos

    RIP Ernie Hunt

    Yep us too - it was a really innovative piece of play that became known as the 'donkey kick'. The current laws having changed again seem to more or less describe the move! 'A free kick can be taken by lifting the ball with a foot or both feet simultaneously'. it was featured at the beginning of Match of the Day for several years. Hard to believe it was 48 years ago

    RIP Ernie Hunt

    Scored one of the most famous goals in English football history for Coventry against Everton in 1970 with a free kick after the ball was flicked up by team mate Willie Carr with his heels. The move was later outlawed. Roger Patrick 'Ernie' Hunt born 17th March 1943 Swindon; Died 20th June 2018

    How about The Blues Brothers with the ladies as the nuns from the orphanage...?

    Lets be Frank

    Interesting article about Frank in today's Times where he says 'the biggest thing that Jose did for him at Chelsea was not a technical, tactical change it was a mindset change a confidence thing, a belief' so hope Frank can bring some of this inspiration to us

    Official: It’s Frank, 3 year deal

    This is one of the few occasions when the appointment of a manager has an impact outside the immediate football responsibilities. This will raise the profile of the club nationally and internationally, season tickets will be sold on the basis of today, attendances will rise, commercial opportunities will increase and if things begin to go well as I think they will then these areas will continue to grow. Difficult to understand any negativity at this stage.

    At least we haven't introduced him as being on the staff...(yet)

    The question was possibly perspicuous rather than perspicacious

    If it’s Frank

    I think the 'zero experience as a manager' angle is somewhat mitigated by the extensive experience as a player at the very highest levels of the sport, the periods spent working with some of the best managers, 15 years with England, captain of club and country plus his FA coaching qualifications. He will have immediate respect and authority in the dressing room. Who knows who's applied but this level of candidate doesn't come along very often
