  1. Having said that let’s hope he scores and sets up another two today.
  2. Yes but not for the reasons you state and not solely the problem, the team is full of poor players. But Bannan has been equally poor this (and last) season. Not sure he can play as part of a two in central midfield as he requires a defensive midfielder along side him because he is not dominant (not that we have any of them), this leaves us with a very deep central midfield. We’ve tried to play him further forward with two central midfielders but he gradually gets sucked back with the team. We are craving a midfielder who gets in the box and either scores or helps create space for the
  3. Not likely to happen mostly because of money, but also a lack of vision. Either way if we are ever to compete again a new ground is needed and has been for quite some time. 50 thousand is a joke, 40 tops maybe 30/35 with expansion options demand needs to closer match supply. There needs to be parking, good public transport, pre and post match entertainment/ facilities.
  4. Without a doubt we should have kept him, ideally on a pay as you play or reduced terms. But we should have known we would struggle to get better in. I get that we need to move away from signing old / injured players but it again highlights the lack off planing in the summer (any summer). I think we all know what is coming this summer, bad decisions on who to keep and who to release, followed by nothing, followed by an unorganised scramble for players that don’t equal a team. Most likely based on agent recommendations.
  5. He’s a good team player. Not all players in a ‘Team’ have to be world beaters. Unfortunately we don’t have anything that resembles a team at the moment, just a collection of individuals. Frankly at the moment I feel sorry for him having to play alongside Bannan.
  6. No. And if we spend a just a little bit of money to get it in we would be mad. Sad to say it, but our ground is no longer an asset. With 3 stands that either need replacing now or will need replacing in the near future. It has limited parking, poor facilities and limited hospitality. And our one good stand has dreadful leg room. Too negative?
  7. Can’t see why anyone would ever buy us, we are a money pit. If there was someone mad enough it could be that this is the time we leave Hillsborough.
  8. Only if his performances merit his place in the team.
  9. Not saying that they are all failing to pay players at the moment, just struggling. I saw that the other week that the Cardiff owner had to wire 3m to keep the club going and they were applying for a 7m loan/grant. Times are tough, And if your owners business are struggling then it will only get worse. None of this is to say DC hasn’t been a big part of the troubles we are in, especially on the pitch. And I think he is probably running out of cash. I guess my only really point is I’m very pessimistic about our future at the moment.
  10. Not sure we would come out of administration. In this financial climate no one is going to buy a club that looses millions with averagely paid players in the ‘good’ times. If there is someone then they must be crazy which doesn’t bode well for the future. I’m worried about our long term future, and I think football in generally might chance a lot over the next few years.
  11. Not sure why anyone is surprised, lots of clubs are now struggling and it will only get worse. I’m starting to think we will be lucky to survive all of this. We would struggle to find new owners during ‘normal’ times, there is next to no chance over the next few years, even more so if we go down. Oh and why would Hutch join us, the answer is probably no other offers.
  12. Mine came yesterday. Very nice, great charity.
  13. I hope Rhodes goes and does very well. Still think he needs the the right striking partner and lots of balls into the box. Oh and lots of games to bring his confidence back. - I’ve never believed all this he’s finished talk. We bought a broken striker, our problem is we haven’t had the time or patience to fix him. If he’d joined a club where he was the number one striker, I think he would have been back scoring now.
  14. This, this and this^ DC will have his work cutout if he is ever going to seem credible. And it wouldn’t surprise me if Pulis was a... But most depressing for me is the players and their attitudes over the last few years. Sounds like at least 3 managers have now had problems with them and this time even though he brought the ‘messiah’ back into the fold.
