    No mate, it just happens to be my first name.
    Not the Warner's Face part though.

    Ehabs certainly reaffirming he doesn't know anything about football keeping McCann around. Tonight was dreadful in so many ways. Sat in the stadium I ended up reading the programme during the match! McCann has to go!

    That's not an insignificant factor.

    Martin Fish has about 10 snide ones in his garage from the mid 90s.

    £500 a pop.

    Caveat emptor.

    Was it really ? I looked for it and couldn't see it. Had the same conversation today with a HDM reporter who, obviously, knew nothing about it or even what significance the name plaque has.

    Well the lighting is rubbish but it certainly looked like it from where I was sitting.

    Think the following week they went to WBA and came from behind to win . It was as if a light had been turned on and Vardy became fired up and goal hungry , they turned the corner that day. They were a few points behind us when we played them but overtook us easily. I would have Pearson back over Bruce ATM . Pearson and his staff recruited good lower league players who did well for us and other teams. After a shaky start he had a solid upward championship team.
    Fryatt
    Chester
    Brady
    Rosenior
    Koren
    all brought in along with other decent players.

    No. No. No. No. No. Nope. Not at all. No.

    Phil Parkinson built us a decent squad but would you have him back? There’s a difference between being a good recruiter and being actually able to manage the team you’ve built.

    If anything Big Nige’s experiences at us and Leicester show he’s not very good at all, because other managers have been able to come in and get more out of his squads than he ever could.

    Who’s to say why? But if I was to hazard a guess I’d say it’s because he’s a ****.

    Phil Parkinson built a decent squad ? Did he ? He was only here a matter of weeks and the players went to Pearson asking for him to be sacked. He wasn't here long enough to build a decent squad.

    Give you two out of the three.
    Marney was one of our first £1m purchases and only played well against Spurs.

    Only reason he cost £1 million was because of a clause, it was £500k then £500k if we went up. Folan was the official first £1 million player we signed.

    Turner was his first signing for £350k, Marney was his second for £500k, then Ricketts for £400k, they were all fantastic business.

    Marney was no Messi but he played 138 games for us and was good in plenty of them.
