  1. I'm not sure why the OP is getting so much stick. Two months ago it was hard to find a Carlos fan. I got negged to roger for sticking up for him after the reading match. But questions need to be asked. Why are we not playing as well? Why are the new players not being played or being brought in for loads of money? Why did we get outplayed by Huddersfield? I'm not sure if he should go or not but Chansiri will have similar questions I'm sure
  2. Reading have announed the details. Without looking at last year, the prices look similar if not the same. 2 tickets per season ticket for them. Somehow I don't think we will offer the same if it is us that they play http://www.readingfc.co.uk/news/article/2016-17/the-play-off-final-2017-wembley-ticket-details-announced-3718655.aspx
  3. And I was 20 then but have been very nervous many times. Just like I am tomorrow. Couldn't keep still when we played the second leg against Brighton last year. Age doesn't come into it
  4. What happened to this? http://www.swfc.co.uk/news/article/2016-17/150th-anniversary-season-ticket-giveaways-3551577.aspx
  5. Finally. Took over 2 hours but got tickets. Got a screenshot too. Comparing to the one before, a few more red blocks but still a few tickets left
  6. No. But you could get 2 tickets per ID last year. I don't think this will make general sale either. In a queue... down to 800-odd from 1200. I thought the club may have learnt from last season to try to improve things. Obviously not
  7. If we have something to play for against Fulham then they'll show our match. If we and Fulham have nothing to play for then we are in the playoffs and they are already set up for showing our semi final match
  8. In a way he's right that we didn't have many chances, although they didn't either. He' trying to talk their performance up which every manager does. And his tactics are typical Warnock away from home. Not pretty, but I think the reason why it's being made a big deal is because its Warnock. Many other teams have come to Hillsborough this year and done the same. Burton the most recent example. The issue I have though is "When they put Rhodes and Forestieri on, we haven't spent a penny. You look at the sort of money they've spent". There was a thread on here a few days ago on finances linking to the Swiss Rambles blog or twitter. Cardiff have money. They have spent money. Yes Rhodes is recent, but they are still receiving parachute payments after spending loads in the Premier League and spending quite a bit the year they came down. In fact. look at last years wages. Not spent a penny??? Yeah right!
  9. And maybe that was the thinking all along? Especially on the 150th year
  10. Was manager of Notts County when they were in old Div 1 I think? We beat them at home I remember. Did we do the double?
  11. I'm sure he reffed the last home game we had against Newcastle, the 2-2 about 6 or 7 years ago? He had a shocker but did give us a generous goal. Think it was Varney jumping with Harper. Thought he would give a foul but let it stand
  12. Well, it is. It looks bad now, but if we go on a good run now it will be forgivable. We are still on the average top 6, which is also what we finished on last season
  13. I bet you celebrated just as much as the Barnsley fans when they scored
  14. If we want an example of where getting rid of the manager close to the end of the season and it going wrong we only have to look at the other side of the city. Sacking Wilson when they wanted to be in the top 2. The theory being that they would go on a good run to get in the top 2. They didn't. Finished in the playoffs and were rubbish and knocked out by Yeovil. There is no guarantees with getting rid of a manager and form turning around. We have every chance of getting at least 4 points in the next two matches which would be a good return for 2 away games. Let's stick with and get behind CV. At least till the end of the season.
