  1. How annoying! Virgin, you’re awful!
  2. I’m watching this on the app but when I press the red button on my TV, it says ‘there are currently no interactive events on this channel’. Anyone know what that’s about?
  3. I don’t doubt Pulis would get us results and we’d have a chance of promotion under him. But he’s not so fantastic that you’d be 90% confident of going up at some point and I have absolutely no interest in watching his brand of football. I would much rather someone modern and watch some entertaining football.
  4. Bullen hasn’t ever been a good choice for me. I think he’s happy and had some success following the Bruce blueprint but struggles when that doesn’t work. In fairness to him though, Chansiri or us as fans haven’t had the opportunity to assess a fully backed Bullen. He hasn’t been able to bring in his own team and he has to deal with all of the uncertainty. So as much as I don’t think Bullen is up to it, he either needs to be backed or someone else appointed, otherwise he isn’t being given a fair chance. Hopefully goes without saying but I love Bullen and want him at the club for a long time to come, just not as manager.
  5. With the amount of games we have, Reach won’t always be at full fitness. We regularly have to play on a Saturday and then again on a Tuesday, so it helps to rotate.
  6. Whilst he wouldn’t be close to my first choice (sounds obvious), I would much rather we went for an unknown who could turn out to be great, than a journeyman who we know is crap. That’s where my head is at (although I am terrified it’ll be Jos Part 2)
  7. Already realise that mate, even tiny businesses run by a couple people offer better value for delivery. That’s what you fail to realise
  8. 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!
  9. 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
  10. Anyone know when these will be on sale?
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. 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!
  16. I think any decent accountant would have no problem juggling things around to get around a rule like that.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
