  1. He was pretty inconsistent with us but I saw some potential. I like the idea of us signing younger and more athletic players. I don’t think we should judge him too much on last season. It can take even world class players a season to settle, he played a lot of it under a poor manager and he might look a better player with a different type of team around him. I get that he had a fair few awful games but then a lot of our players did.
  2. I agree . I actually think it was quite on trend too and looked fairly modern. I don’t mind the new one but it just doesn’t seem as good to me. I doubt many people would recognise it outside of our fans
  3. am about to order the home shirt but can anyone give me a steer on what the sizes are like? If I’m normally a medium, is that going to be like buying a small?
  4. What really worries me about this is that we have been financially mis-managed under Chansiri. Selling a ground would always be a risk but I’d feel like it was a much smaller risk if we hadn’t wasted so much money in recent years.
  5. The way Bruce is so open, honest and clear is so refreshing and exactly what we needed. Even with FFP restrictions, he is making me excited to be a fan again. Thank you for summarising!
  6. I think any decent accountant would have no problem juggling things around to get around a rule like that.
  7. I thought he showed a lot of potential, but then his confidence slipped when Jos started playing him out of position. I remember Jos saying he’d protect the youngsters by not playing them in 2 consecutive games but that policy seemed to go out of the window. I think we’ll see a much improved Penney under Bruce. I think it’s also worth a shout that a young defender such as Penney would have benefited hugely from having an experienced keeper in Westwood behind him, which wasn’t the case.
  8. It would be a shame, but it seems likely to me given the chairman’s statement about us being ‘in trouble’ if we don’t get promoted. I imagine we’d need to sell a few. I’m less worried as we have Bruce picking replacements.
  9. How refreshing to have a manager be open, honest and clear about our situation and his plans. I don’t have a problem with us having to sell a couple of players, I trust that Bruce can replace them on the cheap.
  10. Reach has been great in a few games this season but really poor in a lot more. I think we’d get the best out of him with much better players around him. He isn’t good enough to drag us up but his goals and assists this season have been really valuable
  11. I always assume with a new player like him, he isn’t in the squad because either his fitness means he can’t track back enough meaning we’re vulnerable at the back (plus the fans would quickly get on his back in this situation). Or that he doesn’t understand our system quite well enough. In either situation, if he doesn’t play well, his confidence will be down and so it just makes sense to gradually get him playing. I think my post is essentially saying that I’m sure Bruce has his reasons.
  12. I don’t think us as fans and the sole customer of the club should have to rely on this mis-information and contradictory statements. It’s like our club is run by Trump at times. If it’s financial, tell us and we’ll get over it. If it’s because the manager doesn’t rate him, be clear with us and tell us. I think a bit of transparency would go a long way.
