Quite the redemption for Theo. Could have come out with two fingers to the fans, but a very nice sentiment. Fair play to him after a nightmare season.

Just seen this. Going post it on the Smallsall forum I am. Wind up some dodgy accented nitwits. 

Christ won 4 on the bounce and the moaning goes on and on and on and on still it gives the players a rest.

That's not the point. The problem is does he also naturally act so aggressively behind the scenes with club staff. Slippery slope. 

I mean if the performances in the last 4 games are to go off id say hes got a good relationship with everyone at the club. Its one question lay off the bloke stop nit picking for negatives about him

He comes across as he hates clichéd answers and journos annoy him. 

Only the other day I think it was Phil Bowers who he told he'd have to rotate over Easter. 

He's going to be a Marmite manager and how it goes all depends on results. 

I thought that interview was really good. It's the one where he called Nathan Smith "a winner" and Smudge is certainly getting back to his best form, so DCs man management can't be that bad? I' doubt that he is a bit of a dictator / tyrant off the pitch, but I think he assumes that guise in interviews, sometimes - sees them as a necessary evil...a distraction, perhaps?

It isn't one question though is it, he's prickly in every interview. My gut feeling while listening to it is that there was no need to snap at the question like that, he's just won 4 in a row ffs. Deal with it.

...Can’t moan about performance or result, so let’s moan about a flippant response to a question he has on numerous occasions said he won’t answer!

Exactly my thought! Reading things that aren't really there!

It is a bit like Brian Clough would say and he did not turn out to be a bad manager lets just roll with the Clarke bandwagon onwards and upwards.

What the frig are you on about :laugh: Did you miss where I literally just said I like what he's doing? Just don't see why Bowers should have to be on eggshells every interview. 

Literally guarantee with your weekly wrist cutting over Askey earlier in the season that if we'd just lost four in a row and he was that snappy in his interviews you'd be screeching about it the way Smallsall fans ended up doing.

Tried to offer charity bets to people who said they were certain we were relegated but nobody was having any of it!

Also said we would finish above Walsall and oh how they laughed at me...
They decided to give their money to Denise Coates instead for some reason.

<ovf censored> me. I'm not moaning, I made a joke post about nominating him for an MBE earlier in the thread ffs. I'm just wary about his attitude in interviews coming back to bite him like it did with the Smallsall fans. Deal with it.

I don't DC is going to be my best mate but the way the players past/present talk about his man management I really don't think it's a problem we need to think about. 

 

More worried we bring his old assistant in from drawsall

Yep, much prefer that to pissing about, especially if you don't feel comfortable doing that.  Not very progressive but the 1st rule of defending.

Absolutely right.  I've posted my frustration on-line many times when we have conceded goals (and lost games) after the 90mins point, when a bit of judicious 'hoofing' might have saved us the loss of those precious points!!
