  1. The EFL needs to tell the clubs how P&S will be amended for the COVID seasons when there's no or very reduced match day income, or planning becomes impossible. Not holding my breath, though.
  2. Don't know anything about the kid, but a signing is good news in itself, so I'll take that for now.
  3. Obviously we should have gone for the other Gary.
  4. Glad to see the back of this season. Hard to argue with the proposition that the second half of the season is sacking form, but with next season not that far away and what division we'll be in not clear yet I'd be surprised if the cub was thinking about adding to the complexity of dealing with things by trying to get a new manager in (something Chansiri has never done quickly).
  5. Forgot to say earlier, Swansea's 3 young PL loanees were a cut above anything we have. Very impressed with Guehi, who basically had Wickham in his pocket throughout.
  6. Voted for Iorfa. Everybody was poor in the second half. Reach's work to get that cross in the first half was excellent, the way he conceded the penalty demonstrates that he shouldn't be defending crosses in to our box. Not going to dwell on 2020 so far. Let's see how any points deduction leaves us - I would have thought we'll have enough to stay up unless it's really swingeing. Big reset coming in the short off-season, whatever happens.
  7. Props to the players and Monk for the improvement over the Derby game - the last one I saw. Voted for Wildsmith, but Bannan, Wickham, Murphy and Luongo were all excellent. I had no real complaints about anyone. Let's keep this up for the rest of the season.
  8. Who are the persons involved in adjudging the merits of a defamation claim other than the legal system?
  9. The actual legal system won't apply that as a principle to prop up sports governance. The counterargument is that sports governance should not be capricious, and should operate in legally accountable ways.
  10. The EFL does not have the authority of the state, so I have no idea where you're coming from with this. And a first instance legal decision is not a binding precedent. I don't think Chansiri should sue the EFL, fwiw. My guess about this whole situation is that somebody at the EFL dropped the ball on these cases (us, Derby, Villa), and they've been desperately trying to fix it with these charges. The charges are weak if they look like retrospective punishment for actions that were approved at the time. Hence the need to argue that we acted in bad faith or lied. It looks like that argument has fallen over. I think that makes the EFL's underlying case most likely considerably weaker. Another piece of context is that P&S rules are going to have to be relaxed for this season at least anyway, and as it's a rolling 3 year calculation, it would be capricious to penalise clubs until the effect of that is known.
  11. Voted for Iorfa. Not everyone played well but an injury ravaged team in historically bad form not embarrassing themselves against that Man City side is probably the best we could have realistically hoped for. On Saturday I felt that playing Pelupessy would have been a better option than not playing a stopper in midfield at all. Today, all he really did was provide an extra body. We really need Luogo back, and we've missed Reach so much on this run.
  12. First game I've been to since Leeds away. Pretty shocking all round - in the first half they were walking through our midfield at will. Iorfa and Windass stood out as making a big difference in the second half.
  13. I don't like to be negative, but that was gruesome. Reminded me of the days of getting outplayed by shitty little clubs in League 1.
  14. Was sat with the L**ds fans Thought it was a very assured and hard working display all around - shut the crowd up by just after the half hour mark. Have given it to big O for not looking at all out of place in only his second match.
