Desparate for a left back, Bikey and new at Centre Half. Gaulling to see Caldwell at Birmingham when he should never had left - cheers Brian for letting him go!

But what golly says is true. He's had long enough to sort something. He does seem out of his depths.
I cannot accept that there are no defenders out there who could improve us.

Eddie Howe is a likeable chap, but, @#$%& me, he has to be treading on very thin ice now, regardless of the shitty hand he has undoubtedly been dealt by the cretins above him.

Given the £20m wage bill we had last year for relative dross I suspect we're looking at cutting that hugely so it may well have become there's no-one out there who'll improve who we will actually spend the money on.

We've gone about this season all wrong in terms of player activity but who knows whether this is due to the board or Eddie Howe. However, I'd be surprised if he really did intend to go through this season with the total lack of strength in depth that we have.

Simply put, if you get rid of half a team on high wages and replace them with players on a quarter of the wage, those players aren't going to be as good. You may get one or two (Austin for Big Chris for instance) but on average you're also going to get Easton for Fox, Hines for Eagles.

Look at Preston, they're suffering the same financial problems, brought in an up-and-coming and then an experienced manager and neither have made the difference.

I'm all for sacking Eddie if we can appoint a different manager who'll guarantee success. On the wages we can afford to pay though I doubt that manager exists, so carry on Eddie.

Understand that aggi, but i still refuse to accept there are not players out there who can fit within our budget and improve us.

EG: Millwall have just got an England U21 defender from Villa on loan. Palace have just signed an Israeli international defender from Cardiff.

I know they're only loans, but would these sorts of players really be out of our budget ? Cant see it meself.

You'd have to presume yes Fred. I can't find any logic behind him being happy with 1 left back, 1 right back, 3 central midfielders, and not one centre half he's willing to play who is good enough.

You know what Maggie used to say Clan, when the wets were plotting against her,

'Better keep a hold of nurse, for fear of finding something worse'

I don't notice that many suggestions as to who could replace Eddie and push this shambles of a football club into the top 6. I'm still not convinced about him but, imo, he deserves to be given a chance. All he's had yet is shite dropped on him by the board from a fecking great height. It's no surprise to me that we're now in a relegation battle, I backed us to go down at 16/1 at the start of the season. The board more or less guaranteed this was going to happen and I doubt any other manager could make much difference. Are there any good managers available currently ? And if there were, would they want the job ? Would they ****.

and just how would you pitch the job to a new manager ? tiny squad, no money, spineless board and near the bottom of the league, also you will have to move near to burnley.

yep they will be beating down the door!

howe might not be the right man but change at the very top is the only way forward. even in the prem the best they could do was laws ffs!

the only way to effect real change is to vote with your feet, hit them in the pocket. history shows it's the only time things change.
there a business and there product is shambolic. don't let your heart rule your head that's what they count on!

Eddie was not my choice, my choice is now manager of Brizzle...nonetheless our problem is not Eddie imo, it is the ferking great financial blunders made prior to his arrival that have given us absolutely no wiggle room to get out of the s*it that we find ourselves in. Be serious about this.....how can we possibly succeed with cretins at the helm who have performed so miserably with unexpected riches. The past foretells the future, leopards do not change their spots. When we are deep in the mire the purse will open to magically secure the services of some possible saviors as happened under Steve Cotterill...but will Eddie make as good choices with his one chance as Steve did ?

@#$%& or bust, he was the best we could tempt at the time; before that it was Lawsy in the Prem. What next with our current situation?

He does have to take a portion of the blame, but I'd love to know the full story of the promises he was made and the current goings on behind the scenes. It stinks, and it really wasn't meant to be like this. Not a happy time to be a Claret at the moment, I've even gone so far as cancelling the text-alerts and Clarets World because I really can't be arsed with it all.

You’re all a bunch of low intelligence dim-witted hypocrites. Again you are spreading negativity which will eventually increase across most of our fans. Why do fans listen to idiots like yourselves. You wanted shut of Laws. You were happy when we got Howe. There you go. Small minds and short memories. Shall I give you an idea which I have stated loads of times but been slated for. Get behind the team when they need it most. What about that for an idea. Oh yes, that means having to go through some bad times. I’m glad I know none of you personally as it is frustrating just reading some of your idiotic childish posts. God help me and God help BFC with supporters like you lot.

It's probably blind faith on my part, but I'm not overly concerned about him at present. It's not that I think he's doing an impressive job, more that he's been dealt an awful hand and that the problems run deeper than front of house.

As Bourdeaux says, even if we were all to agree that our current predicament is mainly down to the manager, could we actually attract a high calibre applicant at present? If we could, can we trust the board to appoint him?

The club has been in sharp decline for almost two years. Howe hasn't even been here for half of that period.

Can't believe the opening post, what drivel.

Also amusing to see 'Im not pro Brian Laws, I'm pro giving a manager 2 years to succeed' is also against Howe.

Wot they should have done when Hossface went was put Steve Davis in as caretaker with a nod & a wink to him that it may lead to better things for him, if that had have happened he would still be at the Turf with some of the backroom staff that jumped ship with Coyle. If he did o.k. he could have been given the job if he did'nt after say 10 games he could have been moved back to his previouse position whilst we found a new Manager. He had all the coaching qualifications to do the job & there would have been nothing to lose whhist soppin Coyles poaching exersise in its tracks. How difficult is it to run such a man management & buissiness thought through a directors head ?

Fantastic run but I think we have to stick with him. He has aged a year since this thread started and obviously being so much more mature makes all the difference, innit?

I think we should offer him an extended contract. It'll take a few weeks for his agent to go through it, so if we don't win any of the next three we can always sack him.
