  1. Perhaps we needed the 1m fee or we would have been worse off in terms of FFP for this season. In regards to what we owe Boro for him. We are stupid. But are we that stupid. Clearly Monk would have said he wasnt going to play what with all the strikers we signed. I just think before we all have another pop at the club. We should probably know all the facts.

  3. The sooner we have new ownership the better. Respect for Chansiri for giving it a go, but sadly it hasn’t worked out. Absolutely baffling decision to let someone stay at the club for 5 months who won’t get picked for the first team

  4. Sorry if posted elsewhere. I've just read that a deal was agreed for them to take Rhodes on loan until the end of the season, they were paying his wages in full, at the last minute Chansiri demanded a £1m fee and that was the end of that. Rhoades will now sit out the remainder of the season on huge wages that could have been spent elsewhere. And we wonder why we are financial fizzed. Incompetence of the highest order.

  7. “I don’t think that was ever really the number one aim. Of course, that’s the ambition and we all want to fight for it. We’re going to fight for it. But if I’m honest at the start of the season it wasn’t an ambition for anyone, realistically. That’s not to say we shouldn’t be fighting for that, we are.” That was the quote. The general consensus on here after Bruce left was that mid table would be a realistic aim. Easy to take a headline and bash a manager you maybe never wanted. Which is what many seem to be doing currently.

  10. Given the EFL have released statements at every stage of the proceedings i cannot believe they have won the arbitration side of things and moved to and completed the disciplinary hearing without releasing a statement to that effect. As i said above, from the Rhodes thread, some people on here love to feed the negativity.

  13. Isn’t this a hearing to find out if the charges are lawful, which if they are would then lead to a hearing to find out if we are guilty? I honestly don’t see how anyone could know what potential punishment we will face at this stage.

  14. Tbf, it doesn't take a footballing genius to reach the conclusion that we are not particularly well run. Chansiri has spent up to 150 odd million? Bar the initial upturn, we are now no better than before he came here. For the investment he has put in, we should be in the Prem or at the very least knocking on the door. An inability to buy/sell at the right time (he can't even buy his own stadium at the right time) has cost us and will continue to do so until he pulls his head out of his own backside.

  15. Those clubs are all run a lot differently to ours. We have no CEO or DofF, we only have 7 or 8 outfield players contracted to the club next season, we’re facing an EFL charge and (in terms of promotion) another season has already passed by. It’s bizarre that there’s still posters on here that think DC is doing a good job

  16. If and when we get points deducted we have one person to blame and it isn't Gibson or any other chairman from any other club, nor is it the EFL or their rules.

  17. I have never come across any other business that operate with wages costs amounting to 130%+ of the total annual turnover. I have never come across any other businesses that are willing to give employees carte blanche on what they earn. I am led to believe that our club made losses equivalent to the full three years' permitted losses in one year alone. I think that FFP or P & S is far from perfect. Adjustments are necessary but there needs to be some mechanism for reining in the excessive spending that occurs in football. Regardless of what you say, there are clubs that do operate within t

  18. I'd love to see a business structure set up. D.O.F CEO, people who know football inside out. Experience throughout the club in all departments. Above all, guidance for the owner rather than having to wait for him to sign off on the bog rolls. It just seems right now that its Chansiri who runs the lot lock stock etc.

  22. Well, I for one think it's a good move. It's not like they're removing heading from the sport, just limiting its use with kids. Most kids hate heading the ball anyway so it'll not be a big miss. They can concentrate with keeping the ball on the deck, and introduce heading once they've got the other basics of the game sorted.

  31. If we get found guilty, don’t blame Gibson. There is an inference on here that we are in the dock because of Gibson. Looks like he’s raised the issue, and to be fair it’s dog eat dog in football, so if he hadn’t done it, 22 other Chairmen in this were probably queuing up.

  33. Without Fletcher - P13. W2. D3. L8. (0.7 points per game = a 32 point season) With Fletcher - P21. W10. D6. L5 (1.7 points per game = a 79 point season) Yes he is key. No we can’t make the play-offs. We’d need to win at least 9 of our final 12 games. We aren’t going to do that.

  38. You've clearly misjudged the mood of the thread here. We're not looking for an accurate report of what's actually happened, nor even of what's been published by those bastions of truth The Sun and HITC; we're looking for an opportunity to spew some bile towards Chansiri based on one Owlstalker's misreading of a potentially made-up article. If you want to join in, I'd suggest you preface your condemnation with 'If this is true...' just in case, though.

  42. Yeah, I remember that Watford match well. There was a rumour circling about that Di Canio got himself sent off on purpose, not sure I believe that, but it was bizarre, and if I recall correctly it was only about 30 minutes into the match. During the shootout, Pressman also stopped one. Just watched the video again. Seeing Big Ron back in the dugout, it felt like we were going to pick up again.

  46. I was at Molineux that night, still have nightmares about it. Sure we're the only team I've ever seen, possibly the only team ever, to go 3-0 up in a shootout and still lose. Amazing pen though, that was the first time I'd ever seen a goalkeeper take a penalty in a shootout as one of the first five takers. He later scored one (I think the winning pen) against Watford as well, the game when Di Canio received two yellows and a red card for disputing a throw in.
