    My mate knows Steve Agnew's nephew and says it's a done deal. Only delay is that Bruce wanted to spend Christmas and new year with his family. Currently still in Barbados. Theres a reason on the bookies are not running a market on it...! Pretty much what what we already know.

    After the slating he got last week from Jos I thought he showed great character to put in a performance like that today. I was impressed with him. Hopefully Bruce knows more of how to play him than Jos did.

    Out of contract list

    My heart says keep Hooper, Matias, Westwood and Lee. My head says keep Matias and offer Hooper & Lee reduced contracts, if they sign they sign, if not let them go. Westwood is obviously not in favour so will unfortunately we will lose one of the best goalkeepers in the league for free. Not sure on Preston, but surely if he was good enough he would have been given more of an opportunity given our circumstances. I'm a big fan of his, but not sure Pudil has another season at this level in him. The rest can go.

  7. Why the Fox he still getting a game?!
  8. There are pro's & cons to both staying at Hillsborough and leaving. If we were to stay I would like us to redevelop both west stand and kop similar to Ibrox (as images) where the lower part of the stand meets around the corners but not completely filled in with seats. This retains the traditional separate stands with a modern element. The corners could be as screens or hospitality boxes along with permenant TV studios. Both stands could either be single tier or 2 tier with boxes between upper and lower and both could satisfy segregation of fans. Ultimately further down the line, this design could connect the south stand with west stand and Kop with stadium control and screens in the corners. The issue's with staying have been well documented and the club would have to seriously think how to increase non-matchday revenue streams. What is is clear is that our home needs serious investment to meet the demands of modern day football business and generate more income both on matchday and non-matchday.

    We are popular in Rovrum

    Will probably have been bought by Wednesday fans cos the chances of getting a ticket will be slim
  12. Then Le Tissier did it a few years later and the world went mental with admiration
  13. Hope he stays there. Hate Derby.

    Westwood Going

    I'd be disappointed if he went if I'm honest. He is still our number 1 choice in my opinion and as good as Wildsmith & Dawson have been I think if we are to compete at the top we need his experience. Having said that it wouldn't surprise me if he went.

    I feel strongly that we should bring back the teddy bear throwing from the early 90's.
