  1. Ah, the old season ticket, don’t go argument. Trumps the slow timing one every time.
  2. Honestly don’t know. Will we ever know? Carlos was a complete charlatan, a snake oil salesman IMO. Who I have zero affection for, retrospectively. Sorry.
  3. Not really up to speed. But I agree with the slow timing thing 100%. The site owner does it all the time. Blame Carlos for our current situation? - yes, he has a lot of the responsibility, dependant on how much he was in charge. Obviously the Chairman too. His tenure leaves a long shadow. Left a complete circus behind - culture, recruitment, fitness. Dependant on his autonomy, obviously. .
  4. Blamimg him for losing the first and bottling the second? Who else do you suggest?
  5. And lost. And bottled it the next year - when we should have won. A miss is as good as a mile. Unless you're Sheffield United - then any crap goes on the honours board.
  6. Crikey. Are we talking about the same player? Is the one you are lauding not a complete crock and available for every game? You can’t be a “winner” on the physios bench. *Or suspended, or substituted after an early yellow.
  7. I liked him. But let’s be fair - he was a complete liability. You didn’t know when he would be fit or how long he would stay on the pitch. You can’t build a team or even a squad around him, As much as you admired his commitment. I think his physical frailties did for him as a player.
  8. No different to any other money losing Club is it? All are dependant on a charitable benefactor/owner. Football is unsustainable in the main. Does this shock anyone? Really?
  9. Chansiri may be many things. But he isn't dishonourable - in fact, he’s too much the other way. He needs to harden up IMO.
  10. Yes, I’ve replied. - get involved. Lets have a best “chip shop war”. Ive got my ammo - photo’s.
  11. I like to see which ones are in dispute? * “Chairman goes from zero to hero”
  12. Don’t believe this. Obviously some players haven’t been paid the loyalty bonuses that they think they deserve or are entitled to. Can’t see the Club not honouring wages - without an arguable case. We will see.
  13. Hootie’s caused some reyt bother in this thread. Hit and Run, too.
  14. Ah, makes sense now. Thanks.
  15. Harris for me. Held the ball up, ran his socks off, always showed, was always available. For the full 90 minutes.
  16. Well in all honesty - they need to have a good look at themselves. Or, watch the last 5 minutes of United v Arsenal. What a day to be alive - I’ve had to have a cold shower.
  17. Yes. Them getting to the final would have insufferable. Absolutely, yes. * I’m starting to worry about you.
  18. Bought it from Reg Vardy’s in Reading. We were living the dream then. (There was a Bentley dealer at Pangbourne but we gave it a miss).
  19. It was a VTS (with optional ABS and additional air bags). But they nicked the chevron on the bonnet. Got a new one off e-bay.
