  1. That's the problem with doing anything other than cancelling the season in my opinion. You're never going to get 100% approval with anything they can think up to resolve this mess, so the only solution which treats every club equally is cancelling the season and resetting to where we were when it started. That way no one can realistically complain about the outcome or claim that they missed out on anything financially (though I'm sure some lawyers would still have a go). The slight alternative to that would be just continuing on with the season as normal whenever we're able to, but that would almost certainly involve long-term changes to season schedule going forward (i.e having future seasons start in January, or whatever), which I can't imagine would be welcomed by many - and would have knock-on consequences for other European and international competitions.
  2. The only objectively fair resolution is for the season to be pulled from the history books and started again. I haven't heard any other solution which isn't unfair to at least one other club. I do understand the need for the EFL/PL to be seen as trying everything possible to get the season restarted or completed in some other way though, thanks to the lawsuits which will inevitably follow regardless of what happens next. Hopefully that is all they're doing and they don't genuinely have any desire to restart or end the season with some of these ridiculous adjustments they've dreamt up anyway.
  3. Oof, shots fired. I can sense a boycott coming on.
  4. He kept a clean sheet and made some good saves against Arsenal, particularly that header from Mertesacker at the back post. Cech looked like an amateur in comparison.
  5. I don't get these posts to be honest, you were both replying to someone attacking his character. Football achievements shouldn't have even the slightest thing to do with what you think of him as a person. If he's a d!ck, he's a d!ck. (I don't actually know if he is a d!ick or not and have no opinion either way. He doesn't play for us so I don't care.)
  6. I've never seen a referee give so many decisions on the basis of which team's player put their arm up first to claim it's their ball. He had zero authority, I actually felt embarrassed for him.
  7. As funny/clever as that is, I'm sure it should technically be against rule 12 for unsporting behaviour, since I'm not sure how it could be argued that it's fine to score a goal when your opposition don't even realise the ball is in play. Some might claim that it's no different to taking advantage of a team not watching for a quick free-kick or throw-in, but being intentionally misleading with how you restart play is a bit different.
  8. His second season was miles better than the first, results wise. That fact seems to have been erased from history after the unfortunate result against Huddersfield though.
  9. Yet you receive at least 15, so it's being massively under-sold. I think the deal would have been much more attractive to people if they had just said it was a 15-year season ticket for the (current) price of 10, even though as it stands the offer is actually much better than that and everyone is still mostly turned off by it (going by this thread).
  10. How can this be good for the club. Its crazy. To be fair, when buying a season ticket I doubt fans usually take into account what their money does for the club, they just want to get the best deal they can to watch the football. Otherwise people wouldn't be so happy to see that the price of 1-year season tickets has been frozen again.
  11. Yeah, I mean I get how the 15 years works, what I don't get is why they're advertising it as a 10-year ticket when it's 15 at the minimum. We've already had people in this thread doing the maths on it to see if it's good value, but mistakenly working it out over 10 years. I really don't understand why the club are under-selling it so significantly, especially when by doing so it actually makes the whole thing even more confusing.
  12. There's an article about this on BBC Sport now... https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51129422 "The '10-year season ticket', described by the Championship club as "completely innovative", will cost up to £6,400. Confusingly, the ticket will be valid for a minimum of 15 years." Indeed, I don't get that part of it at all.
  13. If you're the kind of supporter who's owned a season ticket for the last 10-20 years running with no expectation of that changing any time soon, this is clearly a fantastic offer if you have the money available. I get the concern regarding the signals this gives off as a poo-or-bust type gamble though.
  14. Bit odd that the referee let the game kick off before checking that Dawson was ready (35 seconds into the video), he wasn't even looking the right way and still had his towel/drink in hand. It probably contributed to that rushed clearance a few seconds in as well.
  15. There has been an investigation though, and we're claiming to have proof that everything was pre-approved by the EFL. The case is ongoing. The sensible position is to wait and see what comes of it. The understandable position is to be blindly optimistic and support the club/chairman and hope it gets swept under the rug if anything actually is a bit dodgy. The mindboggling position is to leap straight into criticising the club/chairman when we don't actually know if we've done anything wrong yet.
