The freedom to play the most mundane, mind numbingly boring football we’ve seen in recent times.
It seemed as though when we scored, it was by accident.
Made Warnockball look like Man City that nil nil home game against Rotherham was totally painful a lot of games that season was like that the nil nils I've seen more excitement at a wake.

"Got to value the basics" what a fraud he was.

Hes lucky he had a half decent team to bail him out his true worth has shown through since leaving us been in and out of 5 jobs in 4 years and moat likely finished in football management.

Ah The Russell Slade era.
Can’t remember which game it was, but I actually went home at half time for one of them, it was that bad,

I remember when we were losing 4-1 to Watford at home in the festive period Slade got dogs abuse their 352 made a totally mockery of the dinosaur 442.

I know Slade did a decent job under difficult circumstances, but it was easily the worst football I have ever watched. When I was talking to non city supporting mates, would find it difficult to find the words to tell them how boring it was, I’d run out of superlatives.

Every week was a morale sapping ordeal. Shortly after kick off I would find myself wishing the minutes away so I could get out of there and get to the pub and put the experience behind me. It was a weird mixture of anger, despondency and skull crushing boredom. I genuinely saw people led across a row of empty seats sleeping on several occasions.

And then you’d have the bloody after match press conferences which were just as dull.

If you hadn’t experienced it, it would be easy to think it was an exaggeration, but we all know, it really was that bad.

Spot on. Was terrible to watch Solsjkaer's and Trollope's teams too for different reasons. Warnock was a breath of fresh air because there was a plan and we created regular chances again.

Solskjaer was a f**king car crash I even had a personal spat with a Norwegian fella on AAMB who was convinced he was Pep standard.:hehe:

The crazy thing with Solskjaer was, Tan had his arse in his hand about Malky wasting money on transfers, but he then goes and bankrolls OGS ridiculous scattergun approach to team building.
How many of that team had their contracts paid up and allowed to leave for fack all? That whole period was a bloody embarrassment. We were a total car crash of a club.

That period pretty much established the transfer committee Tan was still getting his pants pulled down from managers and agents and was even bringing in players of his own it was a mess. Its only that Ole hasn't got a racist text message to be found he was arguably spending more than Malky was in signing on fees alone hence we had that embargo in 2016.

What frustrates me the most is that we did sign quality players we could've easily got a young manager from the lower leagues on the cheap rather than journeyman Slade.
