  1. If Vodafone can get away with stealing £7bn from us I'm sure Derby are able to sneak a few million out of our public funds. Yes, I'm still bitter about that.
  2. I can't imagine it ever feeling right to watch Wednesday at home in a 28,000 modern bowl. Because let's be right, if we went out and built a new stadium in the next 5-10 years it's not going to be capable of producing anything close to the kind of experiences we can still make at Hillsborough. Very few clubs in the country get to experience atmospheres like we do when the stars align every now and then, and I wouldn't want to lose that for the next 5 or so decades at least.
  3. Plymouth move up into the play-offs with a 4-2 defeat
  4. Have you taken it to an independent repair shop for a quote? Apple are notorious for scamming people with excessive repair costs.
  5. Good result, especially when taking the performance into consideration. We've proven we're capable of challenging for the autos now. There's no excuse not to to be up there in May after watching that.
  6. Not sure how that wasn't an instant yellow for their guy. Especially since we gave the ball away straight from that free kick as well, the ref had no excuse not to bring it straight back.
  7. I think he's been excellent these last couple of games and contributed a lot to how attacking we've been.
  8. Megson after beating Sheffield United is a pretty memorable one.
  9. You could make a lovely little three piece suite with all of those...
  10. Only maybe Darren...? Hmm, I'm not surprised the players aren't more ruthless if this is also how Moore talks to the in the dressing room. Surely he can't go that easy on them privately. This casual attitude seems to me to be why we're not competitive.
  11. It's a pretty unlucky goal to concede with that deflected shot actually, I was expecting a lot worse... Still, Moore's hanging on by a thread regardless.
  12. If we were 3-1 up in the 90th minute I still wouldn't believe tonight's the night.
  13. That goes the same for Mr. Hirst as well, in hindsight. Despite a large portion of the fanbase slating the club for not breaking the bank to keep him. If only Chansiri had ignored us when we asked for Rhodes too...
  14. In pre-season the vast majority of predictions seemed to be along the lines of "hope for the playoffs" rather than any real expectation of getting there. So it is interesting to see how those opinions have changed, understandably, because the league clearly isn't great quality from what we've seen so far. I think position and points return wise we're doing well, I'd have snatched your hand off to not be in the bottom half and struggling a couple of months back, but the football has been crap for the most part, so that casts a dark cloud over everything.
  15. It's much, much easier to finish 4th bottom of the Championship than it is to get promoted from League One. This season was never going to be easy.
  16. I didn't like how he tried to get Iorfa sent off today for running into him. Threw his arms up at the referee at least 4 times trying to get him to pull another yellow out for a nothing foul.
  17. People genuinely still think CC underachieved here
  18. It used to be, now it's at the referees discretion. But yeah, it's terrible. I look forward to the day that football is played to the clock, with it being stopped automatically when the ball is out of play. That would likely mean dropping to 30 minute halves (or less) to end up with the same amount of "game" as we currently have, but I'd take that any day to completely obliterate timewasting tactics.
  19. You're allowed to read the other threads on the subject and post in those. Hope this helps!
  20. If it's genuinely true that a lot of the new players really were tempted here because of Darren then sacking him now could be an utter disaster. Morale would drop through the floor. At this point it doesn't seem like it's going to work for him here, but it's still too early to actually sack him considering the above. It needs to be proven beyond doubt that he's taking us backwards, so that the players would have no real ability to question the decision when it comes. Sure, it would be entirely on the players if they stop giving their best if Darren is kicked out, but that doesn't mean that it couldn't happen with a number of them, leaving us in an even bigger mess.
  21. Not sure if you're joking or naive... I don't think the original comment was "celebrating" anything, it just came across as needlessly derogatory.
  22. The question needs more context. If we're talking about the best player who has been at the club in the last 3 years it's obviously Forestieri, there's no other logical answer. But if we're talking about players who have contributed to us the most in the last 3 years, it almost certainly has to be Bannan.
  23. I said in pre-season that if we were above the bottom six at Christmas I'd think Moore had done enough and I'd be happy with the job he's doing. That was before the mad few weeks of incomings while we only had about 11 players on the books, but still. He seems to be the one who has convinced the new players to come here, and I think deserves the opportunity to see if he can get them playing as a unit. So I'll stand by my original view if we achieve the above goal. I'll start to have serious questions if the 2nd half of the campaign doesn't bring more points than the 1st, come the end of the season.
  24. I don't think they're real stadium plans, probably just an art project from a uni student. Only the most tinpot of clubs lacking in any kind of self respect would write something as ridiculous as "Beautiful Down Town Bramall Lane" in huge letters on the back of the stand. On second thoughs, it might be real.
