14 wins since 19 December 2015. 63 games!! :eek:

When trying to put a fire out, at what point does it become a case of save everything around it and leave the core to burn to the ground and start fresh?

How long will Hodgson have to put the whole thing out, before we need another one to do it? Or will he actually be given time to sort it, no matter what happens.

Roy, or whomever comes in now, just give them the 2/3 years and if it needs a relegation and an overhaul so be it. Do something to the club with the money it has, rather than throw more rescuing the potential losses.

Crickey, has it really been only 14 wins in 21 months? Ouch.
It's really taken it's toll on the fans, owners and obviously the players.

Hardly This is an anyone who gets the job thread, and whomever it is, should they get the opportunity to overhaul it regardless of immediate results, or do we do the same in 4/5/6 months (4 games), as we have ended up doing for the last 21 months?

Glad you think it's terrific though :)

saw some ridiculous stat that since December 2015 we are 91st out of 92 in the english football leagues for worst record. That's crazy, how the hell did we stay up last year.

Rotherham. Even Sunderland have more points than us in that period. They're 90th.

Some incredible stats in this thread. And very reflective of how we've really struggled to build a long-term strategy since promotion, and turn ourselves operationally from a Championship club into a Premier League one. I used to think 'at least we're not Sunderland', but now I realise we're just as bad as them. I hope Roy has some longevity and success here, because we need it based on the above.

The worst bit is 'just as bad' would be in improvement on us :eek:

Could soon be 14 in 67, anyone that doesn't think this is a deep, deep rooted problem has their head in the sand!
