  2. Massive issue of trust now within the PL and wider. These clubs have had people sat in on key PL meetings all season , whilst also plotting in the background to stage what was pretty much a coup.

  6. The two fatal errors here were the closed shop nature reserved for the self-proclaimed biggest clubs while those deemed inferior could be tossed aside at will, and thinking they could do this while maintaining they could also continue in domestic competitions. We’ve been saying for years that we think the big clubs will break away and form their own European League. I think this shows it is closer than we think. I believe they will go away, re-group and decide that they still want a super league but they no longer want to participate in the domestic competitions. They’

  8. The fact this was ever a thing should be enough proof that something quite radical has to change within the game. The whole thing was absolutely outrageous. The supposed biggest 6 clubs in this country absolutely riding roughshod over the rest of us, making a complete mockery of the competition and what football is meant to represent. Also worth remembering that this is following their first attempted power grab under the auspices of operation "big picture." That's right, this lot have used the COVID-19 pandemic on two separate occasions to try and justify their lust

  9. Which removes the funds and riches of European football, possibly sponsors, maybe even Premier League football, all of which directly impacts the owners. Moaning because the fans and players don’t deserve it? Jesus wept. Did Luton’s fans or players deserve it when they were constructively relegated via successive points deductions over a 2 or 3 season spell? What’s your suggestion? 20 grand fine for the Glazers?

  11. Massive error on the part of these clubs and owners. The threat they have used as leverage for years in order to better their own ends is now gone. No longer will they be able to hold the threat of a breakaway league over game in order to see their own selfish agendas met. Because as we have now seen, they are unable to do what they threaten, fans, governments, other clubs simply won't let it happen. This must not be forgotten, you can't pretend you never did this, that you are now listening to fans, punish them anyway. We now need regulation in football around ownership, these mon

  15. The coup attempt may have failed but there are 60 or so other teams for whom the financial gap renders fair competition impossible. This is what PSB and FFP is set up to do. It's quite a while since Barnsley, Bradford C, Peterborough, Northampton, Luton and Oldham stumbled on a few Jewels and threatened the top division . However, those kind of short lived journeys put a glint in everyones eye. It seems now that those kind of fairy tales have been ripped from us. So the coup is over but this must become the trigger for a football revolution. We must not wilt like the sc

  25. Pulis was up front in saying all along that we would struggle with the present squad until the January window when additions would help to balance it out. Given backing we would not have been in our current postion. Alas, that backing was not to be and here we are.

  27. Completely agree. The performances under Pulis were dreadful. We were lucky to get the points that we did under him - a couple of Adam Reach goals out of nothing and hanging on for dear life and scraping a 1-0 win in a game we deserved to draw. We actually created as many chances in that Bristol City game on Saturday as we did in the first six games under Pulis. Looks like Moore has come in too late to save us this season, but the people comparing Moore with Pulis on this thread need their eyes testing.

  28. Tony Pulis 10 games in charge 7 points out of a possible 30. 1 win in 10. 4 draws. 5 defeats. Darren Moore 9 games in charge so far 7 points out of a possible 27. 2 wins. 1 draw. 6 defeats. If we lose on Saturday Moore and Pulis have an identical record in there first 10 games in charge. One was absolutely crucified on here and on social media. The other seems to be given the benefit of the doubt. Football might be slightly better under Moore but results are largely the same? Personally don’t give a crap how we play as long as we pick

  30. ...to our advice back in 2015/16. Everyone on this site was of one accord. We begged him not to spend. We didn't want quality players like Forestieri and Hooper bringing into the club. Nor did we want a shot at promotion. We wanted money investing in sustainability, youth development and the like. So what if we'd have to wait another decade to have a go? I mean, we'd only been outside the top flight for 15 years, so what's having to wait another 10? This mess is entirely of Channers' own making, and

  33. The idea that this lot can just back out and shove out a press release, then be welcomed back with open arms, sickens me. Football CANNOT let this slide without severe punishment. Point deductions, financial penalty, transfer bans.. it all has to be on the table. I’d be shocked if any of them get thrown out of the league but the maximum short of that needs to remain on the table. -30 for all 6 and a 3 year transfer ban. See how you get on with the top 4 then.

  39. The Pulis appointment was a terrible one and was never going to work. Darragh Mc Anthony on his podcast said that the Pulis appointment was worse than poor and whoever advised our chairman on this should be sacked! I could not agree more. If Moore had come in then I think we could have got out of this. His appointment was too late but I have to say the team has looked a lot better under him. The problem is that the team has such a losing culture there was not enough time to turn it round.

  40. Upon promotion from league one in 2019 we sold that squad for over £10M and brought in 16 new players that summer, this is the squad we have now, most of them have 2 and 3 years left on their contracts with us(so we don’t need to sell any of them this summer) we upgraded on what we had. Our recruitment team are the muts nuts, they continually replace players with better ones, same with head coaches, all of our last 3 have achieved their targets and each one as been an upgrade on the previous, we’re a totally different animal under these owners. Last summer we only made one significant sale (Ja
