9 Years Podcast
On This Day in 1992
Clive Allen's second half winner for Chelsea left Peter Withe's managerial tenure on the brink. Following just one win in seventeen games, there were loud chants for the manager's dismissal despite a late spell of pressure that showed that the spirit in the club had not been totally extinguished. A board meeting the following Monday confirmed the inevitable as the Merseysider was replaced with reserve team coach Joe Kinnear. The former Tottenham Hotspur full back was put in temporary charge with a brief to save the club from relegation. - historicaldons.com

was absolutely gutted we lost, especially as I went to the game with my Spurs supporting brother
Holdsworth wasn't the fastest but was always in the right place at the right time and to get into double figures most seasons in the premiership is something not to be sniffed at. Gayle and Ekoku were not prolific scorers but were bloody handfuls and battered defences leaving Earle and the rest to fed off.

Imagine a front line of the Chief, Deano and Marcus now in their prime.
Lurker/Diddy - and as someone I once worked alongside used to say, “The more you do, the more you may do...”.

Lurker, he may not be the paciest forward but that never stopped Carl Leaburn.

No sugar coating. Get him fit and polish up his game and he'll be a handful at this level.
MAD - from comments he's made on TalkSport it would seem he no longer goes to frenzieville.

kt2 I'd be very happy to see him alongside Hanson, as at the start of the season, in a rejuvenated set up and we'd have a chance but there's no point sugar coating the facts he lacks a bit of pace and has had a fair number of injuries or health issues this season.

and would be interesting to see him alongside the rejuvenated Appiah, if his few recent goals weren't just the exception that proves the rule...

Not sure why people are down on Pig's ability to provide a significant boost to our survival chances. He's not quite the finished article, but given his form and goals at the beginning of the season he could make a massive difference if we can get him fit and back to form for February's games.

Once his game is a little more polished I reckon he'll be a real handful. Got hunger, work ethic and youth on his side. Great prospect.
blue the thing that will hold Pigott back is he really doesn't have the pace. If we could pick up a half decent target man that could share matches with Hanson we might keep him fit and stand a better chance. But yeah we definitely do need at least 1 more forward. Lee I'd add if we could at least make it so Appiah and Hanson aren't injured at the same time it would be a start.

Blue, I agree with you about Hanson and Appiah. If they were fully fit for 1/2 a season it would give us a chance. I like Pig but he is coming back from an injury and will need a few weeks.

I never want to see Pinnock up top on his own again
Piggott is still a rough diamond not quite at LTB’s level yet. If Appiah and Hanson were injury free then we’d stand a chance. Unfortunately they are always injured so we need reinforcements to stand any chance of staying up. No good wasting Pinnock up front, he should be utilised in his correct position as provider to the forwards where he is most dangerous

Shame about Moncur as he’d been perfect addition to our midfield. Wonder if we took a look 👀

Ribligo that's not the same as saying we're never in the box cos we just defend all the time. I also suspect, but can't be arsed to research, that you get far more penalties where a player is in a clear position, than when it is crowded, the speed we attack at tends to mean crowded.

Looking at the League 1 page on the BBC looks like a number of clubs are starting to splash the cash.... wonder if the loan deals have 'dried up'?

Referee's get it wrong, hence VAR. But you need to be in the box far more than we are in order to get the rub of the green with penalties.
Anyone whos emailed for Hammers tickets heard from the club yet?

Diddy in my experience, as a4e says, might be worth having a side chat off the record about it rather than confronting. That situation of people who are willing to go the extra mile getting taking advantage of seems more and more common. (In my experience, saying no to something early tends to work better than trying to say no to things later; comes back to the old saying, you can always come back from a no you can't easily come back from a yes).
