My feeling is that as a fanbase we're pre-disposed towards negativity and assuming the worst (completely understandably after the last three decades). So when things turn to shit, as they have, our tendency is to almost withdraw into ourselves and go towards the lowest common denominator as a defence mechanism. I get that and I don't blame people for leaning that way at all.

But we need to be bolder than that as a club, and not throw all the good things we have out the window because of that fear. I know they're not showing it, but we do have some good players and some excellent young players. A talented progressive manager should be able to organise what we have, sell a few in January, bring in at least 3 players in the positions where there are gaping holes, steer us to mid table and then have a plan to push us seriously forward next season.

If we get an Allardyce he probably will keep us up, but half the fans would dislike him and view anything he does with resentment, and the other half would spend it blindly defending him. We'd become an even more divided club, we'd end up binning him in the near future, having to start from scratch again, and having to buy a whole raft of new players again. Let's not write off another couple of seasons.

Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Was much, much worse than this under Mike Walker and Walter Smith. You seem to have lost your head a bit.
I remember the Mike Walker days and Walter Smith only too well. It really wasn't much worse than this.
The way I see it is that our one saving grace is there are also pretty abysmal teams around us. We can get out of this with a decent appointment, but we will have to stop feckin around and make one. I would go for a 2.5 year deal with Dyche. I really think at present he is the best we can attract.

We don’t need to panic as the last 6 games have been with an inexperienced caretaker manager.

If we’d just gone through them with our second “proper” manager then I could see where some of the wild thrashing about is coming from.

Need to look at it and see that despite being awful for most of the season, there are still teams that have got less points than us, that despite using tactics selected by the tumble dryer for the past few games we’ve still managed to score and get some results etc.

Any good manager will look to start with the basics of shoring the team up and look to build from there, not just organisational specialists.

All that said we do need someone in as the games are coming thick and fast now.

Possibly right, but on the other hand every team below us would have wanted

I'm not too sure it was.

17 thousand in attendance to see us lose 5-1. It doesn't get much worse. Set records against palace for the most fouls in a game and the least completed passes in the premier league since opts stats came in.

Whilst you may think I've lost my head, I think you're a bit naive to how much trouble we're in.

Only so long you can say' 'lads, we're only 4 points off 8th' etc.

Not on mass they wouldnt. Maybe individually though.

I also think after Moshiri’s first summer (when we tried to be all Billy Big Bollocks and got turned down by everyone) that we just settled for players that were willing to come, whether they were what we needed or not.

Still hearing shouts for Allardyce lolol

People making these shouts need to be told the same thing as Moshiri, the pool of talent exists outside of the Premier League.
