    I think we need a RB, CB, CDM, RW, LW and a ST. That's not to say we need them all in January. I suspect we write this season off now and bring in a couple, probably a CB and CDM, possibly a LW on loan and go for the rest next summer.

    I agree this season is a write off now.

    I don’t agree it’s a write off yet. The five losses dropped us rapidly but 3/4 wins would put us back in the mix. There’s a long way to go yet, keep the faith

    We all thought we were going to start the season poorly originally. Then we got some surprise results. Recently it's been dire, but there's no reason this season needs to be considered a write off if we can get organised. I honestly think if Allahyar and Tetteh had avoided injury we'd have been better off right now. Same problems, but with more points on the board.

    Of course it isn't. Look at Forest last year or our own unremarkarkable start in 07/08.

    Too many posters hitting the panic button too early at the first sign were not going to piss the league. We're 11 games in to a long term project. Yeah we need to stem the flow of goals against and get some confidence back into individuals, but I still think we'll end up mid table this year.

    I agree, but the only mix we should be looking at, is to get into the top half. Anything more would lead to ridiculous thoughts tgat we’re better than what we are & then we’d sound like Wednesday fans.

    Daws seemed to steady the ship somewhat on Friday, I kinda want to see what he'll do tomorrow too... From what we've seen on the squad so far this season I don't see any promise on a push to the top half of the table coming any time soon.

    You say panic button, I saw rose tinted glasses...

    Same posters focus on the negatives and knee jerk at the first opportunity.

    It's a long game in reality. Talk of promotion this year was always fanciful, but a couple of tweaks to the recruitment in Jan and man for man were in a better position than last year in most areas.

    I'm with you on needing a CDM and possibly another CB, but you're writing off a lot of players we haven't had chance to see at anything like match fitness yet.

    It's for that exact reason I think we need them. Not to necessarily replace the players we have, but because with a single injury we're absolutely knackered in certain positions.

    You appear to be giving acun some god like status
    How do you know acun realises he’s made mistakes
    All he’s done is sack the manager like every clueless owner does

    Bit of a stretch there.
    And no, not at all I could list several things that imo he's got wrong, but overall he's been great for us to date.
    I just think he isn't daft, a bit excitable and rash but not daft. It's new to him and therefore a learning experience. As always, only time will tell.

    It's not about getting a couple of wins, it's about getting the squad actually working together, and the balance right. Things we won't be able to correct until January.

    That’s true, but I think with right coach, someone who has good man management skills, they could get this squad firing before January.

    Possibly, and I hope so, I just worry it's a very unbalanced squad fundamentally.

    'Only time will tell?' My worry is the whole situation at City reminds me of the David Lloyd era when we all embraced Lloyd and his sidekick Tim Wilby as some sort of Meshia's who were going to make everything right and take us to the promise land after the barren Dol*n and Fish years. We packed the City Hall to hear Wilby talk in riddles and make promises he could never fulfil, and we all turned out to cheer Lloyd when he eventually turned up at Boothferry Park like the homecoming queen, then lost 3-0 to Notts County, managed by one Neil Warnock. We instead had a so call big name manager, Mark Hately, sat in our dug out, saying all the right things but totally inept at putting them into practise. Look how that all ended up.
    I'm 100% behind Acun's publicity for the club (and himself) so far, the free tickets for the under 10's, great, but cost very little, and the way he has talked up the club since his arrival, but what that's saying about talk? The free trip to Turkey for some fans is another publicity stunt, sounds good in press interviews, but is it really our number one priority at the moment?
    The fans have bought into all of this (like the Lloyd era) with a 33% increase in ticket sales, and we sold our prize asset and best player, Kean Lewis Potter, to fund an influx of new foreign players, of the owner's choice, none of whom have really made any difference to the team, losing one of last season's most consistent players, George Honeyman to Millwall, in the process to make way for the incoming players. Some of whom haven't kicked a ball for us yet. Then the manager is sacked eleven games into a new season after five league defeats on the bounce, and we've all forgotten how we were out thought and out played in the old league cup by league two Bradford City, and their 'unknown' manager Mark Hughes and traditional league two centre forward, Joe Average.
    Summary and word of warning? Someone said, 'be careful what you wish for', because the next managerial appointment is probably one of the biggest decisions this club has had to make for a generation or more. Get in wrong, again, and we are in serious trouble.
    Today is matchday, Wigan Athletic at home with probably two of our ex-forwards leading the line for them, we have a Columbian International leading ours, who's your money on? Our support is more important than ever tonight, and God forbid if the team are booed off at the end, like last Friday night. i sincerely hope we are stood up applauding the lads off at full time, the owner is stood beaming and waving to the smiling fans and his new manager is sat alongside him thinking 'I've hit the ****ing jackpot here'. But this is, folks, Hull City. UTT!

    With the exception of Silva (to a degree) City's experiment with non British managers/coach has been a disaster. Slutsky. Nice bloke, not a clue about Championship level football. Shota....ditto....What makes anyone assume that a third will be any more successful than the previous two?

    Ps. Wrong thread should be in New Manager.

    My concern, but I'd say at least Martins has plied his trade in the same league Silva did, rather than Eastern Europe.
