I voted for the middle one although the bottom choice was certainly a big factor i reckon

CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP, probably the only one who was daft enough to take it.
"Hello, Bobby," he once greeted his England captain, Bryan Robson.

"I'm Bryan," the skipper replied. "You're Bobby."

Cheap option, but also probably thought a sizeable amount of the fans wanted him, enough to justify it.  And to be fair, they did.
Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.

If Shepherd genuinely thought the fans wanted him then it just goes to show how out of touch he is.

Think of all the fans singing "There's Only One Glenn Roeder" etc etc etc.
"Elsewhere, at worst, modern commercial football could be seen as the mall rather than the circus; insidiously bland, decaffeinated and pre-packed, its relentless formulaic repetition an instrument for disabling consciousness rather than manipulating it."

He always wanted the cheap option and took the perfect opportunity to do it at the least controversial moment.

His timing, for himself, was very strategic because he knew that although a lot of us knew how it'd end up, we couldn't really give Roeder any abuse because of his run of results for us at the time.

He's a scheming fat b******, that's how I see it.

Definately cheap, cheap option!, plus the fact nobody else wanted this job anyway we have become a poisoned chalice while Shepherd and the Halls are still  at this club, whatwe need is a giant laxative to rid the s*** from top to bottom.

Didn't Houllier tout himself for the job? And Ranieri? The latter not being exceptional, but better than Roeder, and the former being a class manager for the majority of his career.

Cheap option, but I still think he genuinely believes most fans want someone affiliated with the club or the area. And he's probably got a point.

Well I know he's online, and am desperate to hear his take on this, but when I try and PM him the link to the thread, it appears he's ignoring me. Gosh, I am super-offended, especially considering the last PM he sent me was him begging me to join his forum.

i'm sure he genuinely thought a lot of the fans wanted hitzfeld or o'neill, but it didn't stop him rubbishing one set of supporters and then ignoring the other. saying he went for the fan's option was simply his way of passing the buck. cheap option, and also cos he knows f*** all about football, which is quite a serious failing considering his job.

why are you even trying to second guess what FF was thinking?

total waste of time, like trying to have a conversation with a labrador tbh

And that's an insult to labradors, who are actually quite smart

I havent'.....or maybe I did a few months ago when you sent me those abusive ones   and have forgotten about it.

I'll unblock you now.

I have no idea why he appointed Roeder, a lot of fans were happy with it lets not forget that. I don't think it was a cheap option either, or at least not deliberately a cheap option, look at the clubs accounts if you think differently, especially having gone for the top expensive options before.

I could say its a "plan" with a long term view to steady the ship and appoint Shearer, but don't expect too many people would accept the club had a "plan" .....

Nah, a section of the fans accepted it but where underwhelmed. Most knew how it'd turn out. So do you think he's made a good appointment or f***ed up once again? If it is another poor appointment, are you willing to put it down to bad chairmanship this time?

I specifically remember you downtalking O Neill's achievements and implying that he wouldn't be a better candidate.

You cannot blame Shepherd for the current results.

The results are down to the players and the manager. Shepherd has backed the manager, to the tune of £15m in the summer, you cannot blame him for any problems.

The club are in the Premiership, which is better than they were in 1991 under the previous board. This board has ambition, the previous board had none. The previous board appointed Willien McFaul and Jim Smith and Ossie Ardiles. That was the ambition they showed.

Clearly you weren't there at the time otherwise you would understand s*** appointments. If you weren't there you have no right to make any criticism of the current set up.
