    So far I'd give him an A- but with just a little extra effort, an A+ is within his grasp.

    Trump and Turkey

    He is not a complete idiot but he is working very hard to get there.

    Jack Ross

    9 managers in 7 years is ridiculous. However, that kind of shows that Jack Ross performed above the average, by lasting about 15 or 16 months. I always thought that Jack Ross was taking a big step up. He had one good season at St Mirren, other than that, Im not sure what hes achieved. I can imagine that the draw of Sunderland was as much about money as it was about ambition. Compared to St Mirren, I expect he's pretty much set for life now? I also expect that for a guy like Phil Parkinson, or a guy like Ainsworth, the salary will make them financially comfortable enough for it to be worth their gamble.

    Russia v Scotland / Euro qualifiers

    We dont have the players to be able to defend. Setting up to defend is foolhardy. Admittedly, we are light of options in attack, but we arent utilising the players at our disposal properly, so the ball comes straight back at us. Trying to fit square pegs in round holes doesnt help either.

    Trump and Turkey

    You can be highly intelligent, but lack common sense, so whilst I know he's not a complete idiot, I simply think that despite the advice he will have received, he simply doesnt grasp the seriousness of his actions. Remember, ultimately hes a businessman rather than a politician.

    Jack Ross

    I see Sunderland have identified Wycombe Wanderers manager, Gareth Ainsworth, as the man they want to succeed Jack Ross. Ironically, he's been in his present post for 7 years. In that time, Sunderland have been through just the 9 managers. You would hope he would have the presence of mind to tell them to shove it, but if he's ambitious and confident in his own ability (not to mention a handsome salary increase) he'll be strongly tempted to take it, even though statistically, he could well be out of a job by the end of the season.......... Eta. I see that Phil Parkinson is now the 1/5 fav to take over. Maybe the bookies know something we don't?

    The trouble with setting up not to lose, as Craig Levein will testify, is that as soon as you concede the first goal, you're well and truly fekked.

    Trump and Turkey

    Contrary to what many of us may feel, Trump is not an idiot. I think he knows exactly what he's doing and will have been fully briefed by his aides as to the consequences of the USA's actions. Sadly, I don't think he gives a flying one......

    Trump and Turkey

    Seems to me that Trump has no realisation of what hes actually doing here. There is a far far bigger picture, with implications that stretch beyond Syria and the Middle East, and the potential outcomes are pretty scary.

    Russia v Scotland / Euro qualifiers

    Russia beat Cyprus 5-0, although Cyprus played most of the game with 10 men. We have Cyprus up next, over there I believe. We havent travelled well this campaign, expect that game will be tough, especially if we set up to not lose, as we tend to.

    The match looked a borderline candidate for being abandoned. Ok result.

    Trump and Turkey

    Add the fact that Trump actually has significant personal investments in Turkey you actually have to wonder whose interests were served here

    Scotland 6 San Marino 0 Positive result, but nothing to get carried away about. Will paper the cracks for a month or two.

    Wouldnt surprise me if the auld mans cynicism is actually a reality.

    Trump and Turkey

    It is just utterly depressing. I can't really say much more than that.

    Jack Ross

    To be fair, four years probably is long term given the demands for immediate results. To me, Sunderland demanding immediate results shows a lack of understanding of football these days, and perhaps that their board and fans have an inflated opinion of their club. Of course, I dont know the size of their budget compared to the rest of the division. I suspect its the biggest in that league by quite a margin, though that wont automatically translate into success.

    ''I will challenge your "fact".'' Well of course, it's in inverted commas for a reason, Vinnie. It's not so much a fact as a general rule, or received wisdom, if you prefer. There are always exceptions to any rule.......... FACT! 😃 The more general the rule, the more exceptions you're likely to find, if you look hard enough. You've found most of them in your post, I reckon. I would also argue that Mourinho is a good enough manager (although I don't like the man) to have amassed a good haul of trophies if he'd stayed at one club - he chose to leave some posts of his own accord. And 4 years is a very long term when we're talking about the likes of Sunderland......
  25. The old cynic in me thinks Erdogan asked Trump to move his troops out of Syria so he could bomb the Kurds to kingdom come. Well, they weren't in Normandy helping the Allies in WW2, I suppose. What a fekkin bizarre statement. I can't watch the news footage. So many innocent people caught in the cross fire.

    Abbey Road Soviet style. Apparently they were about to perform for some oil rig workers. No idea who they are, but they must have been well known as they have put on the red plank welcome for them.
