  1. Yeah, waiting for mine too. Was just about to post a thread asking whether others had got theirs, so thanks for saving me a job
  2. It’s possible, isn’t it, that this is one of those where it doesn’t have to be one thing or other? It was wrong he didn’t get his wage and that probably affected his performances. It was wrong that he didn’t necessarily have the professional pride to turn in a performance when he was clearly one of our more able players. But I completely accept that this may be hard to do when you aren’t getting your wages. I think to suggest people want him to smash tackles in or be a hard man are wide of the mark. We just want to see commitment. I grew up watching Di Canio-didn’t see him putting many tackles in but you felt like he’d give everything to win (except when he wouldn’t play away games like)
  3. Not sure I’d be throwing the word ‘challenge’ around so much, given that he’s spent a number of years absolutely neshing them
  4. Best I can do is two out of three there mate. And I would categorise the potential for a further points punishment that could either A) best case-derail a promotion push or B) worst case-send us into league 2, as something to worry about. The chairman now needs to do what he’s been there for all along. Pay the bills and let people with a knowledge of football get on with sorting out the football side. Some encouraging signs with recent signings he might be doing that, but we’ll see
  5. /we didn’t pay our players for 4 consecutive months and they didn’t for 1
  6. We’ve got off lightly. We haven’t paid people what they’re owed for months and they’ve given us a suspended sentence. Up to the chairman now whether we get done or not
  7. Good job our chairman isn’t known for being pointlessly stubborn about things eh? As others have said, can see us hanging on and him going for nothing in a year anyway. I suppose you could say what have we got to lose in that case, but keeping players despite them wanting out hasn’t worked that well for last few years….
  8. I think it should have CHANSIRI across it. Not enough of that kind of branding around the ground…
  9. It’s garbage. Rubbish football between rubbish teams in mainly rubbish grounds. And we’ll still struggle….
  10. Think the thing with DC is this isn’t his trade in any way. And he’s never requested/accepted help from people whose trade it is. Instead he continues to make the same mistakes over and over again
  11. Hope he’s not working on heading. That Palace game when he neshed one will always be my abiding memory of him
  12. Struck a real chord with me, this one. Hoping I get to the stage you seem to be at. Been trying for too long to chill about it and it’s exhausting
  13. Talking about train stations and encounters with players from the past, I once saw Danny Maddix trip going up the steps at Sheffield station. This wasn’t a huge shock, based on what I saw of his defending.
  14. ‘Erik Alonso? Never met him, never heard of him’ *slams hand down on desk*
  15. I don’t rate Moses Odubajo as a footballer. I don’t think he’s very good and I think he’s cost us a few goals this season. I’ve never felt the need to go on twitter and give him horrible abuse though. And especially not for basically doing something that a few topics down on this forum, we’re calling Reda Johnson an absolute legend for
  16. The sale of the ground wasn’t illegal, putting it in the year before accounts was I think. Should therefore be able to include in the next year
  17. For me, it’s the opposite. Our case from the start has been that their accusation is totally without merit. That would suggest we have clear and obvious proof that they have given us permission to do what we have done. I can’t imagine that would take getting on for a week to produce. Hope I’m wrong but this length of time seems to suggest that there’s definitely something there, it’s just the extent of it and how bad it is they’re arguing about. I am massively glass half empty like
  18. In the middle of a storm? When there’s gale force winds swirling round the place? When your only outlet is Adthe ‘the wardrobe’ Nuhiu? Against Reading? Yes, I’m suggesting having a go at a pass or two might be preferable to the ball coming back at you every 35 seconds or so. Only way we build confidence is to try and stay comfy on the ball. I’m not saying it’s right for every situation and don’t mind us being direct on occasion, but Saturday just looked like we’ve only got one way to play (which we unfortunately probably have)
  19. I’ve thought he needed time for a while and has been unfortunate with Fletcher being out. Saturday worried me a lot though. Having your keeper lump it long every single time into an actual gale force wind was mind boggling. In the early part of the first half, when we got it wide to Harris particularly and got the ball in, we at least looked like we carried a bit of threat. After that there was nothing. In contrast a terrible Reading side get the ball down and play a couple of passes through the middle of our non existent midfield and we’re all at sea and chasing the game. The players are obviously bang average, but at the same time we look so tactically naive and without any plan at all and that’s scary
  20. He doesn’t strike me as someone just doing it for the cash (hello Fernando) but I agree that something is going on mentally there. In a way it’s sad to watch. He looks to me like someone that knows what to do, but just can’t make the connection between brain and body any more. The first goal in the Forest game was pure instinct-no thought involved, just whip a shot in. After that you could see confidence in everything he did. Sadly, you can’t guarantee him a free goal every game to get himself going
  21. Never met her. Never heard of her (slams hand on desk)
  22. Heard similar from someone other day, thought it must be nonsense but might be gaining traction
  23. Farewell @Owlinmad you crazy, brave warrior.
