But I've heard that behind closed doors Dowie's been getting bolshy but the board were unimpressed with how inconsistent the team had been playing. Thought it was just a rumour but maybe there was something in it
No teams are consistent!
As much as I dislike the guy it does seem very harsh.
want to be my number 2?
*leaves wide open for joke*
Will that do?
Yes, first step, using the players we have at our disposal, introduce a 2-8-0 formation
purely for the reason that I was n the same form as his brother and he was the biggest cunt I have ever met.
He's in a band don't you know.
Celebrates goals by throwing up the Devil Horns and everything.
when ainsworth used to wear the white of preston north end
they were the days
He is a tur club man though, so it's nice
Roberto Mancini is being lined up for us.
prior to the Reading match tomorrow with Joey Barton as his number 2. Whose turn is it to get the coffees in?
Charlton, Coventry and QPR.
He quit Palace and then got sued which is much better no?
although when we left Palace we were pretty glad to see the back of him.
The front was hideous.
I like the guy and he did good stuff at Palace for half a season, but surely he's completely unemployable now?
Look at King Kev, he gets the sack every couple of months or so but back he comes with his hair and his tactics.
Dowie's greatest achievement was dragging Palace from the relegation zone at Christmas to promotion via the play-offs, which was an impressive feat and he completely changed the way Palace was run, the players trained etc, but he was complete bawlls in the Premiership and wasted our chance for a couple of money-spinning seasons with the big boys.
Now he's been at QPR who have massive potential with a relative bucketload of cash and he still couldn't get to the top of the league. I wouldn't touch him with a barge-pole.. unless I was looking for a rocket scientist.
What has keegan achieved? He did well at a club (newcastle) that was spending millions when few did, and he still couldn't win a title. Fulham = same thing. England = utter bobbins. Man City = utter bobbins. Newcastle again = LOL.
is what I was getting at and why I used him as an example. Thanks.
kk just walks out before getting sacked
Dowie at QPR is only comparable to Keegan at Newcastle when they got promoted because both are spending much more than others. The main difference is that Keegan actually got Newcastle promoted, whereas Dowie's QPR are 9th in a league full of inconsistent shitters and by all accounts playing no better than Palace, who are skint and managed by a dinosaur.
To stretch the comparison ad absurdum, when Pardew eventually gets sacked who would you rather take over, Dowie or Keegan? You can't possibly say Dowie, you'd rather ANYBODY than him back again.
He's a really really insanely nice guy (almost too nice for the football world) but he's clearly unemployable at this level, at least for the near future.
Far from it in QPR's case I think you'll find.
He had to ask for players in positions.
Then again I wouldn't give Dowie money, would you? Also, why did he keep asking for more midfielders and not another striker to compliment poor old Dexter
