Followed by humiliating the whole club by cementing us as the worst team in Premier League history.

I very rarely agree with you but that's not a bad point.

It is, but quite clearly that team and manager was miles away from being good enough for it. Why would you build your team around players who couldn’t hack it a decade ago, yet alone now?

That article brought back some memories.

Quote

Once labelled "the next Paul Gascoigne".

I remember reading that sort of stuff about him as a kid. Getting so excited about what he could be.

 

Really hammers it home. Doesn't matter how good a young player looks, how much hype there is about them, no-ones certain of developing into anything of note.

Simon Dawkins is training with Ipswich trying to get a deal.

Good luck to him, always liked him and felt he was a bit underrated.

Signed a contract until the end of the season.

That wasn't the team's fault - it was Billy Davies. He cleared off on holiday for a month after Wembley, by which all the players we should have been in for had already been signed up elsewhere. Then he tried to take on the might of the Premiership with hoofball which, apart from one season by Wimbledon, has never worked. Ad it didn't work for us. On top of that, Billy was already planning geting him self sacked well before a ball was kicked in the Premiership. We didn't stand a chance!

Stoke under Pulis did a great job of hoof ball in the Premier League. Whilst I fully accept a lot of the blame falls on Billy, the players were equally not good enough, most of them were mid to bottom tier championship players.

Agreed, but that was because the Gnome completely messed up the transfer activity required for a Premiership campaign, and left us with an inadequate squad.

do you really think that spending the magic beans a month earlier would have made any difference? Seriously?

It might have meant us having some Premier League player in the team. That might have made a difference. Remember, Billy didn't do hoofball with Forest, did he? But he did do the "Time to get myself sacked routine" routine though ....... twice!
