    Given we've been told that only one person in the ticket office is making these calls - it might be worth hiding these allegations to save someone getting a massive rollicking tomorrow


    Last thing we want to do is drop someone in it at the club. Those guys work their socks off for little thanks, and are getting stick from fans at the moment too

    Any fan giving any employee (at Hillsborough or elsewhere) is a lowlife, invariably the people manning the phones are not decision makers and have no say in the policy they are following.

  2. So let’s do something unusual for a change and apply a bit of logic shall we?


    People suggesting we need to do this deal to pay the wages.


    We all know the level of losses we have been posting, but even at the P&S permitted level of loss the chairman needs to fund £1m + every month and at the moment it’s likely to be significantly higher what with there being little or no income in terms of cash. 

    So do we really think the chairman would sell a player purely to cover 1 to 2 weeks worth of money?

    No disrespect to the local journos, they do a decent job covering games etc. But when it comes to transfers I don’t think they know anything more than the average fan. 

    But the daily record reporter does? Or does that version just support your agenda better?

  4. I don’t know if there is any truth in this or not, but I find it amazing that a tweet about an article in a Scottish paper about an English second tier striker is automatically taken as 100% accurate down to the exact transfer fee because it’s a good excuse to pile in on the club/chairman again.

    Given we are struggling to pay our players wages - IF we did get this deal through on staged payments - its feasible we are needing to sell him because we can't afford to pay Wigan the next instalment

    Cant imagine the administrator at Wigan would have accepted payment by instalments when they were desperate for cash. Unless we were the only offer

    Not the case.


    Loads of bands I like but are overrated.


    The Who are overrated and I like them.

    But who decides the rating and decides if it is too high.


    I dare say the president of “The Who Fan Club” would disagree with you

    Whilst I agree that overrated =/= personal preference, your argument is ridiculous in a thread about overrated bands.


    By their very virtue, the most popular bands have the biggest potential to be overrated so will be more likely to be included in these type of discussions.


    I think you're just trying to be that contrarian geezer to appear cool yourself here, in honesty.



    If you knew me you would know I would & could never appear cool lol


    It just seems to me that the reason most (please note not all) people will think that bands they don’t personally like are overrated.

    Your argument holds no water

    I could point to:

    Little Mix



    Dire Straits
    Ace of Base


    Hugely popular bands who sell millions of albums worldwide, that music snobs like to dis just because they’re popular

    I see what you are saying but


    I don’t really like Little Mix (as a straight, white, middle aged bald bloke I’m probably not their target audience) but wouldn’t say they were overrated, I just don’t like that type of music. 

    You’ve obviously got a problem with Oasis, others it’s Coldplay or stereophonics, why can’t you just say they’re not my cup of tea, instead of saying people who do like them know nothing about music?

    Which bands?

    Without going back through the whole thread





    Stone Roses


    for starters
