  1. It’s an odd one, in an ideal world this would not happen. But what is the alternative... * More clubs going bust. * More local business loosing money to clubs going into administration. * More fans left without teams to follow. * More detachment between players and fans. Things can’t keep going on this way. I fully expect that we will loose quite a few clubs over the next year.
  2. More than likely it’s been arranged for a while contractually and timed to happen in what was meant to be close season.
  3. I think this shows how bad our finances are going to be next season. With potentially vastly limited ticket / sponsorship money next season don’t expect too much from this summers recruitment. Its going to be tough for lots of teams and players.
  4. Never had a good dirty play in all the years I’ve been watching them (34), Wednesday have always been too nice.
  5. The fans don’t help. We are very quite to destroy footballers. Even more experienced professionals can’t take it so who knows what the kids think watching on.
  6. Good chance next season won’t happen, it certainly won’t be the same... And yet people can’t make a decision to cancel this season. Certainly can’t see Europe happening next season so the European places aren’t worth fighting for. They need to be concentrating on what happens next season, clubs have to start preparing soon. This summer will be a hard one for clubs and players. With questionable incomes next season and losses from this season there will be a big changes coming... * Lots of players without clubs next season. * Clubs with much smaller squads. * Transfer fees will fall. * Agents will have to earn their money. * Clubs will go to the wall without support from the game. Can also see lots of ‘Investors’ and sponsors withdrawing from the game. I can’t see pubs opening back up this year and yet here we are talking about football kicking off in August, let alone finishing this season.
  7. Next season is the problem they should be looking at. - Will people be able to go. - just the healthy and young? - Will travelling to away games be possibly? - What happens if a club can’t play fixtures due to the staff being locked down due to an outbreak. - What if there is another full UK lockdown in November/ December? With all these questions and uncertainties what contracts can chairman give out this summer? How can any recruitment be done?
  8. Step up and make a call. This season is done. Games on tv will attracted fans to watch together. Games create a social distance risks. ~ What if some staff are over 65, the managers even. Games returning will encourage people to go to the park and play. The EFL needs to concentrate on saving clubs and deciding if and how next season can go ahead.
  9. The season is over, no finishing it now. I think it has to be marked a null and void (not going to make some teams happy). A bigger question has to be will next season go ahead? As there is a strong chance we will all be in lockdown again in the winter. And which clubs are going to invest in player fees and contracts knowing this?
  10. Sounded and looked like he doesn't want to be here anymore! Don't blame him.
  11. To be fair we were haemorrhaging money long before DC joined us. Just now the wages are higher and so the debts are greater. We have a ground and training facilities not worthy of a modern club, although the training facilities are much better than they were. We have to fight against many an obstacle put in place by the football authorities particularly to the advantage of relegated teams. We have points deductions and transfer bans to come. DC would want over 60 million even if he was to accept large losses to get out. We are not selling this club to any decent owners anytime soon, only dodgy ones will be interested.
  12. We are stuck in a cycle now... Jos started planing for next season, the plan failed, partly due to him and partly due to the players. The old guard came back and Westwood got a new 2 year contract. Round two, Monk is looking towards next season and a big clear out, but the plan is failing partly due to him and partly due to the players. He will go, Fletcher + will get new contracts and... Round three, next year!
  13. The worst thing the club could do would be to sack Monk and then end up with a manager who keeps a lot of the players in the summer. This club needs a clear out. Westwood, Hutch, Bannan all need to be moved on.
  14. It’s his default position, gets his passing stats up.
