      Under Jimmy we were 17th with 20 points from 16 games. Under Ollie we have 50 points, so 30 from 18 games.

              Anyone who reckons we aren;t 100% safe, must also equally acknowledge we have an equal chance of making the play offs, by that thought process.

                5% chance of the playoffs based on that

                  Like his choice of Fleming too. The guy really marshals side from the sidelines and seems to have more of an input then birch

                    Got to say I've always been pro Ollie as he has similar management qualities to Warnock.

                    He's installed pride and passion In the team with a British core of players. We also mix our style of play up and in general if he had been here 10 games earlier I think we'd be sitting 8/9th in the table now and would have a decent shout of the playoffs.

                    What I like currently is when I see the pre match threads we are all struggling to name the first 11 and there's often a case for 2 or 3 on the bench to be in the first 11 which is always a good sign.

                    We also don't need to go mad in the summer with a major rebuild which imo means if Ollie is given some budget to spend we can actually focus on quality instead of quantity!

                      hands up, I was one not impressed with his appointment. Sitting in the SA stand it's painful seeing all the r's fans that have not bothered renewing in the last couple of years. Early signs Olly's brand of football will hopefully get them back
                      I must away now, I can no longer tarry

                        He's behaving like a manager which I like the acting on the side was one of my problems but he's toned it down and when you watch him on the side now he actually looks the part.

                        I'm fully on board now with him
                        When he first came in and we were losing our fair share he was constantly screaming like a madman on the sidelines, it was annoying to hear as a fan watching the broadcast and as a long time coach I know even youth players get immune to that style so surely pros won't listen for long! I don't know if he figures he got his points accross or if someone told him to tone down but he looks much more the part of a professional manager now!

                          Sorry but there will be those type of managers around who shout the oldskool way, but im pretty sure he doesnt care if he looks a professional; manager now as hes been one for 20 years lol, & won things so a bit of a daft comment as he is a professional and has been 20yrs

                            I was incredibly against bringing Olly back when we were looking at options as I didn't see the point in going back to something before, especially something that ended the way it did. But as soon as I saw that first interview of his, that was it, I was hooked on giving the guy a chance and thank god he's improved the confidence immeasurably and more importantly, he's shown tactical versatility throughout a single match that I did not think he had in him. Well done to Olly, long may he silence doubters.

                              So in a thread full of people praising Ollie, the one that you chose to respond to was the one you had an angle to start an argument with?!!
