  1. Has anyone said it's probably the fans fault yet, or are we awaiting for the Chan Man to blame us in this next presser?
  2. Great start but it's only 1 game. I never think you can make any judgements until you've played 10 games of a season. Anything beforehand I'd preemptive.
  3. Wigans appeal was heard in about 2 weeks, I don't know why ours should be any different. Other than the fact that everything seems to have taken 6 months +
  4. I'm more pleased Tomlin is out. He always scores against us, the fat little hobbit!
  5. People moaning at his goal scoring record need a reality check. Do we need 2-3 strikers? Yes. Would we all like strikers with consistent scoring records? Yes. Do we have money to buy those strikers? No. The obvious conclusion is we need to buy players that have ability and then coach them so they improve their goal returns with us, meaning we benefit in the immediate term and potentially medium to long term if they generate a resale value. If the above sounds too sensible then err yeah bring back Nuhiu
  6. 10 for me. Certainly puts into perspective the challenge ahead. Attempting to stay up with at least a quarter of the season written off is going to be a big big ask.
  7. No, I'd rather re-sign nuhiu and I've been petitioning to get rid of him for years!
  8. Poor player, glad he's gone. Don't ever want him back.
  9. Windass should not be starting regularly as part of any front pairing for the sole reason that he needs 6-8 good chances before he scores. As an out and out striker that's terrible but more importantly is poor for a number 10.
  10. Players don't have a resale value at 27? What a ridiculous statement.
  11. No point in securing a deal for another winger / midfielder when we have enough of them in the squad. We should be looking at bringing some strikers in given we onky have 1 senior striker in the squad and the season starts in 2 weeks!!
  12. During the playoff seasons he was steady away but has been on a gradual decline since then. As the OP has pointed out his distribution is poor and he increasingly gets caught on the back foot / out of position. I'd imagine with the introduction of Dunkley will mean he will get fewer minutes this season. Also I'm not sure how the ranking system applies but it's pretty obvious that Fletcher was our best player by a country mile.
  13. Haha sorry 12 points, will edit the OP!
  14. Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere but I haven't seen it... Does the club actually have any clarity on what we can and can't spend this summer? With the recent 21point deduction it seemed clear that the stadium sale would be included in one of the more recent years financial accounts, which might give us a small amount of funds to play with. Presumably the fact that we're appealing means everything is thrown up in the air again?
  15. If we're found to be guilty and get given a minor penalty that doesn't relegate us surely the teams that do go down are going to kick off and pursuit legal action?. The efl have really put themselves into a precarious position here. We were charged in November they should have closed this out by March latest so everyone knew the situation and there wouldn't be any complaints now
  16. Chris Hughton would be the best choice from the crop of 'available' managers. That being said he wouldn't touch us with a barge pole and I don't blame him. As long as the club continues to be run like a mess we'll never have any success on the pitch. It's pointless sacking monk until things change higher up.
  17. Feeling positive about today. Don't see Swansea as anything special so providing we don't give them any easy goals we should do well. Also known as the don't let odubajo anywhere near the pitch tactic!
  18. Regardless of the injury we need to look to part ways with Lees. He us the past and we need to be looking to the future. I won't miss his chipped balls forward that gave away possession time and time again
  19. He's not going to be able to sell. The football club becuae the way in which he values assets is ridiculously inflated (our stadium, players etc) He'll probably want twice what he paid for us excluding the stadium! Putting all that aside you'd have to be a nut job to buy any football club is this climate, nevermind one that's been run as badly as us!
  20. He's so poor defensively. Can't understand why people think it was a soft pen. He was so far off his man that he could barely reach to pull his shirt to stop him getting to the ball. He was also at fault for their second goal, again losing his man who went on to score. His positional awareness is awful.
  21. 12 points deduction and Wednesday appeal. Or Wednesday cleared and the efl appeal. Either way its not going to be over with this upcoming ruling.
  22. Praying for 3 points today. I'm currently working on the assumption that we're getting a 12 points deduction meaning we're currently 5 points off safety. Don't ask me why I'm working off 12 points I just have a gut feeling that will be the worst we'd get. Hopefully the boys go 3-5-2 again and have been working on whipping in crosses for Rhodes and Wickham all week. Is reach injured or just not getting much game time atm?
