  1. I'll be completely honest, I can't be arsed to read all that, I don't really care enough I thought the argument was could Messi see himself having as much success in Argentina by staying there hence the looking at the team at the time but I don't even know anymore and this is quite a thread derailment
  2. The point was about Messi and loyalty with regards to staying in Argentina and playing for your country so quite what the fact of where the current squad plays it's football has to do with anything I have absolutely no idea. When Messi was a lad the Argentina squads were full of no more than a handful that had never played in Europe, mostly in Italy or Spain. I don't really understand the point about not making it there either, you could name the top 25 Argie players ever and they would all have played in europe and most would have made their name there.
  3. Even when we release a striped kit people moan about the number of stripes, thickness and what colour the central stripe is blah blah blah if it was up to some we would just never change it and that would get boring. The fact we have had similar kits and badge before in our history make the argument that our chairman is messing with our tradition null and void. Also, something which hasn't been talked about is that we will be making our own kit, I think this is great news personally, i've been wanting us to do this for years.
  4. The last I read of that thread, someone had bumped it after a whole 1 bloody game later asking if people had changed their minds I honestly don't know how some people on here make it through everyday life
  5. Yes 34
  6. Pointless debating with someone like you, looking back at things without any context whatsoever and making stuff up. Where did I say Megson is the only one who deserves credit? The reason we finished further away from the playoffs in his first season is because we were on a absolutely dire run of form and a long long overdue sacking of the previous manager, confidence was rock bottom, it was big slide. I will try and explain my point (again) more clearly for you. Regardless of budget and looking at purely on-field performances, getting a team playing like we did under Irvine to a team challenging at the top the very next season was a superb achievement. The clubs I listed all would have had top end budgets for the league they are/were in and still haven't recovered.
  7. Some people have amazingly short memories,highest budget, 2nd highest budget, 3rd highest budget......it really doesn't matter, to go from watching what I watched at the end of the Irvine reign to competing for promotion the very next season is an incredible achievement, we were 100% on our arses. Just ask Villa/Pompey/Charlton/Bolton/Grimsby fans how easy it is to stop the rot.
  8. Interesting (or maybe not) that the commercial revenue hasnt increased that much, thought it would be more. Interesting in that having Chansiri plastered everywhere seems to have divided opinion (I have no thoughts either way on that)
  9. It's the short-termism I can't handle, I guess that's just the way the world is now though unfortunately. A player has a handful of good games and he is worth 20 million, a handful of bad games and he is useless When we support a club like ours though, given what we have been through the last 20 years it's even more distasteful You would have hoped we would be capable of looking at the big picture
  10. Well yes, that's what I said. The whole thread is about China buying up players isn't it!?
  11. There's a foreigner cap in China isn't there? If so this is not something we will have to worry about for another 20 years, if at all
  12. Come on to read about new signing...has to read pages of people having a ***** fight and who negged who, nothing changes FFS You all realise negs make as much difference to your lives as a facebook like? Ie. flip all
  13. That's testicles fella, there isn't a single manager in the football league that has done a better job than Rowett. (Not that I would swap him for Carlos)
  14. Get rid asap he should never play for us again but we shouldn't (and I don't think we will) sell to a Championship rival. Development squad until we agree a fee with a Prem or foreign club, even if it takes until January and even if it's less money.
