Nobody has a problem letting Roy look like he's made his own choice. We all owe him that. He's done well for us, I just believe that his management of us has run its course.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Whether Roy stays or goes the manager for next season will have a tough job with so many players contracts up for renewal, ageing squad, attracting new quality players etc. If Roy stays he might well only have 10 games next season, a new manager might get a while longer.

In my opinion, keeping Hodgson for another year is the option Parish would prefer. It's the easiest and cheapest option, and from that interview Roy is indicating he would probably carry on given the opportunity.

The issue for them is the fans.

Had we still been in lockdown for the foreseeable future, they could getaway with it. However, with fans returning to stadiums, we simply would not remain silent about this uninspiring, dour, boring and tedious football.

The crowd would be on everyones backs. I think Parish is astute enough to know this which is why there a delay over any decision.

Of course, ann announcement of another lockdown and his problem would be solved.

Just reading Hodgsonís comment about Sterling after Saturdayís game.
He was asked about Sterling and England and responded, Ď Iím certain he will be an important cog in the wheel. He plays an important role in the teamís defensive work.í
It does appear that Hodgsonís key criteria for measuring a forwardís worth is his defensive work.
Perhaps a new manager would judges forwards on their attacking play and concentrate on maximising their strengths to hurt the opposition.
Itís not as if the defensive work demanded of our offensive players has led to a solid defensive record - itís amongst the worst in the division.

Wickham - Ademola.
Ward - Clyne.
PvA - Mitchell.
Dann - Cahill.
Hennessey - Butland.
Kelly - I'd keep him.

Roy has done a job in keeping us up the past few years but is approaching his sell by date and we are crying out for a fresh approach.Are you watching events ,Sean??

Tomkins and Cahill will need crutches next season.. if 9 players leave the squad a few replacements will be needed. Who they could be is what intrigues me. They will all have to be cheap.

I think youíre right regarding SP being hesitant but also worth remembering that he, Harris and Blitzer will be most concerned the value of their investment and that two of the three probably donít give a sh1t about fan discontent.

It would appear that Guardiola agrees with Roy as he insists on the same work ethic as illustrated by Sterling.Th3 difference is they can spend fortunes on players and we canít so they can buy quality players and unfortunately we canít.

I donít dispute the work ethic requirement which should be a given for professional footballers at an elite level.
Itís Hodgsonís lauding of a forwardís defensive attributes rather than what can he bring to the attacking side that is difficult to understand.
Itís very revealing about his negative mindset and approach to the game.
Perhaps understandable against the better teams, but not against the majority of teams we face.
And all this defensive work from our forwards which Hodgson demands has not exactly contributed to a good defensive record this season.
And it certainly hasnít made us more threatening in attack.

Its not Roys Decision, His contract is up, its Parish's , a new manager is imperative, as is getting rid of at least Benteke, Sakho, Wickham, Ward, PVA, Dann, Hennessey and Kelly, and also sending Bats back

Pretty much agree and itís been pretty obvious for some months now that Roy will not be our manager next season.
