Get Gerry Francis in we'll be top six by January.
I'll have a pint of whatever you're drinking.

Thanks John. I'd never have realised.

Holloway should've got the sack when we lost against Vauxhall Motors. He didn't and we went on to make the playoffs then get promoted the following year and finish in midtable in the championship the year after that.

So, we need to stick with Holloway and hopefully he will turn this around, like he did before, once the injured players come back. Have faith.

U R'sssssssss

Not one single suggestion yet for who could do a better job - sorry, I forgot Grayson :)

For me there are three options:

1/ Do nothing - I think we will be relegated, because Olly has not shown anything in his team selection, substitutions, tactics or man management to think he has what it takes to fix things.

2/ My favoured option - get someone onboard who has the traits Olly doesn't - tactics, coaching etc. Gerry Francis or Steve McLaren would probably do the trick.

3/ Sack him, move back to square one and hope the new guy can sort things out (absolutely zero guarantees there).
Saturday 9th November 1968: QPR V Burnley in the First Division - I saw the Hoops for the first time and my obsession began!

Remember:
Growing old is inevitable.
Growing up is optional.

That's pretty shocking, even by your standards. Do you not know what her 'football team' did?
I’m not fussy; she’s got more chance of winning away.

Of course things aren't good at the moment....thats an understatement but any team that has had as many defensive injuries as we've had must surely make a difference?
Lynch..Perch, Ned,.Hall,Furlong... I think anybody including the likes Man City Everton Swansea ,whoever.., that loses 4/5 potential first teamers would surely be affected..
Not an excuse but surely must be taken into consideration ?
Have we been able to field a settled or our first choice defence this season ?
Not sure we have.

If we had Warnock in charge we'd be 10 points clear, Ronaldo would be badgering his agent to sign for us, there would be peace on earth, and I'd be dating Scarlett Johansson - fact - just ask Steptoe

And all pubs would serve top quality Real Ale for 10p a pint.

Alright then. Name me three managers who'd not just be prepared to replace Ollie but would do a better job?
Winnie Mandela
A cabbage from the local allotment
The Crazy World of Arthur Brown
And that's what it comes down to. You all want him sacked and have no idea who to replace him with so in 6 months time you'll all be here bitching again. You wanted the last four managers sacked and with each sacking we have got worse. Can you not see that constantly changing managers is just not working for us?
