  1. Already realise that mate, even tiny businesses run by a couple people offer better value for delivery. That’s what you fail to realise
  2. Well they charge £6 for delivery so that’s what I’d expect really. Don’t think it’s a positive! They don’t offer any cheaper options or options to collect from anywhere apart from the megastore. I’m all for being positive about the club but not on this one!
  3. If DC is choosing from the usual inspiring list of Pulis and Coleman - as much as it pains me to say it, Allardyce would be the most likely to take us up in my opinion. If we really are resigning ourself to crap football, then I would be confident he’d get is up. Can’t say I like the man but he has a better record than Pulis etc
  4. Anyone know when these will be on sale?
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. I think any decent accountant would have no problem juggling things around to get around a rule like that.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. If he could stay fit, Hooper would be one of the best strikers in the league. His goal ratio is great and his link up play transforms our team and is outstanding for the Championship. But he just can’t stay fit and can’t be relied upon. I don’t know how much we’re paying him but it can’t be worth it for how little he plays. It’s really frustrating for us as fans but I can’t imagine how frustrating it must be for him, all that talent but constantly breaking down.
  18. I think it’s good for us to have a really outside shout at the play offs; it makes the season more exciting and should bring more people and money through the turnstiles. Realistically, it’s highly unlikely. I think we can win a lot of games before the end of the season, but I don’t think we are good enough to overcome a 9 point gap.
  19. I loved our old badge - I actually think it looks far more modern than the current one. If you look at the big clubs, their marketing departments have clearly had a say in making the badges more simplified and less historic than the old type. We seem to have gone in the opposite direction! I don’t really think it’s appropriate for a foreign owner with no previous connections to the club to come in and change it unless the fans were unhappy. Chansiri has done some great things for the club but I don’t think changing our kit or badge are among those. It makes him slightly more open of criticism when things start going wrong too. That said, if people are voting ours the third best, i’m probably completely wrong!
  20. The Wednesday fan next to me absolutely hated Reach. Reach was pretty awful but then he did get the crucial assist. He is much more likely to assist or get us a goal than Boyd and he always works hard. He looks quite awkward which I think makes some people think he isn’t as good as he is. Honestly though, the guy next to me was screaming ‘Oh Reach!’ at the top of his voice every time he got the ball, and sometimes when he wasn’t even near the ball. It was almost like he was just trying to wind people up.
  21. Me either. But we are the 15th (!) club he’s been loaned to, so maybe he’ll be looking for a home?!
