    Hi everybody, I was wondering if Grayson does not stay on after this season (which I hope he doesn't) does anybody think big Bruno Moore would be worth a shot? He seems to have got West Brom playing far better and picking up results, he also knows our club after playing for us and seems to be passionate about clubs he has played for. We need one of our own and a leader in the dressing room and grayson is none of the above

    From Colin (off out to the garden centre now)

    I can see Bruno getting the West Brom job permanently otherwise would be a good shout

    Don't think we could afford him, not if the present regime is still in place, they will go for Rosler without doubt if they are still here

    What makes you think Rosler would be any cheaper

    Well we certainly wouldn’t be leaking goals if Bruno was in charge, lovely man as well.

    Heck, the bloke has just started, good result at OT yesterday but he's got a long way to go to prove himself.
    Hope the fella does well but it's far too early yet to start fantasising about Darren Moore!!

    The football at the minute barring a Thursday night huff and puff effort has been rancid under Grayson.

    We need a manager that believes in playing attacking football and on the floor.

    We need to be entertained

    We need money.. we need the owners to put their hands in their pockets and back the manager or 11 season ticket holders will go down to 8 next season.

    So you’d rather a manager who plays entertaining football (like McCall) who didn’t get us up, compared to a Parky/Grayson pragmatic manager who has proven promotion ability.

    You’d be the first to complain if we finished 7th scoring 100 goals and conceding 98.

    Grayson, Parky style football will only get you so far. It's no shock that Bolton are now struggling. Goals win football matches and the best way to do that is attack.

    TBF to Grayson, our pitch isn’t conducive to playing attacking, entertaining football on the deck. Especially when the players are already looking like being frightened to death, without a ‘bobble’ making them look a pub player.

    After the Blackpool game, Grayson was going mad that the players had reverted to trying to play "Tippy-tappy" football from the back on a poor pitch. He had specifically told them not to play like this before the game, told them to play long ball into the box but they just chose not to.

    Clearly you haven't watched a Grayson team before he joined Bradford.

    Grayson doesn't play attacking football. His football is dire.

    Here's a thought
    Here's a thought.

    1. Owners to put more money on the table.
    2. Supporters to put more money on the table.

    Let's say raise the price of STs to £300. Assuming 15000 STs that is an extra £1.95m in the kitty.

    Are our supporters prepared to put their hand in their pockets?

    I am but generally I doubt it. It is with a few exceptions NEVER mentioned in any posts,

    Norman

    Did Edin concede on his want for attacking football then? I don't see why him and Stuart didn't see eye to eye. He came and gave him the attacking football he wanted, he worked miracles with the group of players we have. They then bring Grayson in to play the type of football they specifically didn't want to see. He definitely isn't their man and I will be really surprised if we see him in charge next season. If he is however, and we see a big change in faces in the squad, then I think that will be real proof that Edin has backed down and is relinquishing some control.

    Maybe we take a gamble on someone less experienced. Craig Bellamy ha completed his badges and almost took the Oxford job. He’s intelligent and well spoken and I imagine plays attacking football. Darren Moore as mentioned previously, Paul Scholes, Sol Campbell are all part of the new generation of potential managers looking for work. Are they worth a gamble?

    If not, then Grayson is as good as it gets if you’re looking for experience.

    Why should we assume 15,000 if at the present time we can't get 12,000 when asking 169 pounds, come on @Norman Corner@Norman Corner think about it.
