What’s the crack?

  • So... Is this a good appointment for us from the outside looking in?
  • How exactly do the fans of Neil’s former clubs feel about him?
  • What sort of a managerial style should we expect, and what sort of football are we likely to see played now at the Stadium of Light?
  • Why does Alex still split opinion in the North End fanbase?
  • After Jake leaves the lads to get to his actual job... Gav and Martin wax lyrical about the appointment and the dreaded process it took to get us here.
  • As the news of the appointment coincided with the Keane news, how did the lads feel about this appointment in that moment - just yesterday morning - compared to how they feel now?
  • All we can do is back Alex to do the best he can with what he’s been handed... and he’s got a big job on his hands. Has the delay made that job any easier?
  • Wimbledon and beyond - what are our League prospects now realistically speaking?
  • All this and much more! Listen in!
