  1. Judge a team over a season, not picking out an odd month that suits you. We scored loads of goals under CC. We wouldn't have finished 4th and 6th without doing that. Three crackers against Arsenal for a start. You clearly didn't support us in the 70's or the 00's when we really had something to complain about. Far from clueless, we played our best football since the Atkinson/Francis days of the early 90's. Apart from Rhodes, we haven't paid any big transfer fees. You can't get an average Championship player for under £3m nowadays. What's probably done us in is the high wages. But I'm sure CC didn't negotiate players contracts.
  2. You think all our promising youngsters were signed by Jos?

    New SWFC stadium wishlist

    I posted a link on the previous page which shows this site will shortly be turned into an industrial estate. Here we are again https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/development-planned-for-former-steelworks-site-1-9262171

    Worst Signing Ever

    Who alledged his wages? The club don't publish contract details in their accounts.

    New SWFC stadium wishlist

    Man City. Southampton, Brighton, Arsenal, Tottenham, West Ham, Derby and many others were filling their outdated stadiums most weeks and needed to expand. We have a 39,800 capacity home(in theory) and we haven't averaged over 30,000 since 1968. We don't need a bigger ground. We would for a few years if we were in the Prem, admittedly. Darlington and Coventry are two clubs who dropped almighty clangers by moving to grounds which were ridiculously big. Commercially we could use Hillsboro better. I'd like to see the North stand built outwards at the back, so it resembles the South stand. The clubshop and booking office would be incorporated into it, as per Strafford's World cup plan. West stand looks a mess, but unless the police,SAG allow home fans in it, what's the point spending good money on it. Kop facilities are archaic but some folk like the rustic look. I preferred standing out in the rain when I was young and daft. The North stand/Kop corner could be joined up to get another 1500 under cover. Straffords WC plan for the West stand was superb, but realistically will probably never happen.
  7. Don't footballers get overpaid already, even in Kevin's day? Secondly, if we can only get Rangers for our 150th anniversary, we'd be lucky to get Falkirk for a testimonial, and you'd get about 1,500 turning up. Would be embarrassing. Testimonials used to mean something. I was at Joe Shaw's at The Lane when 35,000 turned up. They are meaningless nowadays.

    Most Long balls 2018/19?

    I don't trust these sort of stats. I've twice seen teams who've statistically had one shot at goal and yet scored twice. Even if it's an own goal, it's still a shot at goal. And as for possession, when does a long pass that goes to the opposites, change from one team to another's possession. The only stats that counts are goals. And I have an O'Level in statistics from 1970, so there. (cocking a snoot).

    Reading Away

    Can't understand anyone critizicing readings new ground. Presume they never went to Elm Park on a wet day?

    Best start in 28 years

    ^^^ THIS. Was stated on RS as well but it's not true. 4 straight wins 96-7 is 12 points from first 4 games.

    They said best start in 28 years on RS. It's boloney.

    Best start in 28 years

    Definitely 12 points from first four games 96-7. Then 8 without a win. Can't refer to Championship. We've played in the top tier and 3rd tier in the last 28 years so that statistic makes no sense.

    Still nicer than Sheffield though
  14. At least, the next time it happens- and I'm sure it will- it's important to report it because the police will have two prime suspects to check out. The police only have to check the texts and emails of these two thieves to see if they have been communicating with each other. I don't have much confidence in British police nowadays, though.

    They brought a lot more than the photo shows. Our mascot is on the pitch- the photo was taken well before kick off.
