  1. We've got Bannan Barry Bannan I just don't really understand The wee Scottish man On 27 Grand We've got Barry Bannan What a complete waste of money. We could have had five or six players for that salary in league one who would have improved the squad but we've got Barry ******** Bannan.
  2. Should Dot laugh at other clubs Ron when they are losing? That's up to Dot if she wants to Ron. Don't tell Dot Ron but I have a cheeky chuckle at other teams expense Ron. I do too Ron.
  3. What league are we in Ron? We're in league one Ron.
  4. My sides are aching. What league are we in again?
  5. For a supposed big club there are no great seasons in the third tier of football. Just embarrassment.
  6. Pipers Crisps are fantastic and if you haven't had them you don't know what you are missing.
  7. Let's hope he is better at taking flights than he is at taking penalties.
  8. Brentford have the luxury of picking up released players from London clubs as well as being in a prime location to also take their players on loan.
  9. Imagine if you had sold that player who wasn't a first team regular which enabled you to assemble a squad that achieved promotion to the Premier League that enabled you to buy that player at a later date. The same player still remains an asset on the books and will probably be sold. You also forgot that Brooks generated around £11.5 million and Calvert Lewin another £1.5 million.
  10. For a so called big club we've spent the majority of my life outside the top flight.
  11. My credit card refunded season tickets for season 2020-21. I'm still owed for 2019-20 but have had the generic email. I'm not putting another penny into this club as things stand. Our backs are wet from the actions of this club.
  12. Ramsdale, Brooks and Calvert Lewin have all come through since those you mentioned. Even selling the likes of Jordan Slew for a decent fee and the German clubs are already looking at Jebbison. While some of United's academy players might could end up at Juventus the most ours can hope for is ending up at Fray Bentos.
  13. Coulda Woulda Shoulda. United have produced international players. We haven't produced anything that gets anywhere near that.
  14. Decent u18 campaigns doesn't translate into producing for the first team. We are a mile off and should either put more effort into it or close it down. It's more like a zombie academy existing for the benefit of providing opposition for other academies or somewhere for cast offs for players deemed not good enough for other clubs.
  15. Our academy will never succeed whilever we have the mindset of those involved with it. The scouting is poor, the coaching is poor which results in poor players. The facilities don't help and certainly don't create an environment for success. Look at how successful United have been with their academy even when our first team has been performing better. For far too long we have just paid lip service and not put in the necessary people and resources to make it a success.
  16. I was ready weeks back. Derby's poor form just delayed the inevitable.
  17. Our academy set up is embarrassing from the facilities to the coaching staff. We are in Category 2 but are miles behind all the other clubs at that level. I was reading about other clubs who are looking to move up the Category levels notably Leeds and Burnley who are wanting to go into Category 1. Burnley recently upgraded their training ground with an investment of £10 million. Leeds have always recruited well which has seen many players play for England. Palace are about to spend £20 million and even Mansfield have better facilities than what we have which saw a new training ground opened recently at a cost of £2.5 million. Yes the Premier league clubs have the TV money but we have wasted a great opportunity to improve our academy buy wasting it on poor recruitment.
  18. We might have stayed up too. He might have been given the task of taking that penalty against Bristol City and scoring.
