  1. Exactly this. In terms of CV there is nobody better we could realistically hope for.
  2. I respect the bloke for having the balls to front up to what was always going to be a hostile atmosphere but this is not going well. I'm pretty worried about the direction we're heading.
  3. All I want out of this is to know whether decisions (not sacking Jos, not playing certain players etc) are being influenced by our financial situation. If they are, fair enough, that's the situation and we know what we're working with.
  4. Everyone has their breaking point and Wednesday are just a bigger part of some fans' lives than others. It isn't binary, where you're either a Wednesday fan or you're not. Every one of us is somewhere on a very long scale. The people still going every week are better/bigger Wednesday fans than me and I'm fine with that. I'm not happy with the way the club is being run and I got sick of spending my money and more importantly my limited free time on something that was making me miserable. So I stopped going.
  5. 100%. I didn't renew my season ticket this season, haven't paid on the gate once and don't really miss it anymore.
  6. This is how I feel too. Club seems to be a bit of a basket case at the moment but regardless, I don't think Jos is the man to take us forward into any kind of better future.
  7. Duffy played for it and Fox gave it him. Simple as that. No complaints whatsoever about the ref's decision.
  8. I didn't renew this season and I'm glad I didn't. Had enough of paying through the nose to put myself in a bad mood.
  9. All successful teams have an identity. An ethos. A way they like to play the game. We don't. The whole thing is a mess and I'm glad I didn't renew my ST.
  10. They'll outplay us because they're a much better football team. They just have problems converting the match dominance into goals. Expecting a loss and hoping to avoid a hiding.
  11. Seems to struggle when he's the senior pro in the CB pairing. When you think of the best CBs we've had since Des you'd probably say Batth and Lees (not this season, admittedly), so although it was a terrible mistake let's not hang the bloke out to dry. We all f*ck up at work.
  12. Dana has said the members of Khabib's team involved in the brawls are banned from the UFC. Three were arrested but released after McGregor declined to press charges. The incident after will get all the headlines but as far as the actual fight goes my main takeaways are that McGregor did very well minimising the damage he received on the floor and managed to avoid getting one of his arms pinned behind his back (Khabib's MO). As far as negatives, he got dropped on the feet because he was so focused on defending the takedown and tapped to a neck crank, which is a pain move rather than a choke. The fight was exciting in the moments it was on the feet but on the ground McGregor was just trying to survive until they were stood up at the end of the rounds because he knew he couldn't get Khabib off him.
  13. Scumbags. Disgusting. Ruined a great performance.
  14. Gun to my head or if I had to bet my mortgage I'd go Khabib. However, I do think there's something in the notion that he hasn't really fought anyone yet. Compare the two résumé's and it's a blowout. He is hittable, especially against southpaws (Michael Johnson fight) and his 'plod forward with mediocre striking' style is tailor-made to get him knocked out by someone like McGregor. I don't think it's about whether he can get McGregor to the floor, I think it's about when that does happen, whether McGregor can minimise the damage he receives and get back up ASAP. They're both pressure fighters and I've read some bits about who will take the first backwards step - I think that will be Khabib. I'm expecting McGregor to sprint across the cage from the bell to push Khabib back towards the fence and throw things purely to get reactions and hope to force him into a misjudged shot or strike. I want McGregor to win (in a similar manner to what he did to Eddie would be incredible) because I think it would be better for the sport but I think Khabib tires him out and beats him up on the ground to win a unanimous decision. The submission would probably be there but he's explicitly said he doesn't want to give him a way out and instead wants to put a prolonged beating on him to "make him humble". Edit: As soon as I hit post reply, in my head I was like "ACTUALLY YEAH KHABIB HASN'T FOUGHT ANYONE, CONOR IN ONE!". So in summary, I have no idea but I cannot frigging wait.
  15. So hyped for this. Been consuming all related content like a poo-eating wildman. The below is probably my favourite bit of analysis. https://youtu.be/9jsIe-Bv0IA
  16. People get out of the habit. My thought process is a simple one. I don't like how the money I've given the club over the last few years has been spent, so I didn't renew my season ticket. I won't POTG because I don't want to pay through the nose to lose most of my Saturday and come home with the face on.
  17. Khabib's striking is horrible. He literally runs after guys with his chin up in the air. Probably won't matter though. This one is all about whether McGregor can crack him as he's coming in. As soon as Khabib gets hold of Conor he'll put him on his back and keep him there for the rest of the round. Worth keeping in mind that Michael Johnson of all people wobbled Khabib on the feet, though.
  18. Paying through the nose for a poor product makes people angry. This season will get ugly once it becomes clear to the majority that we won't be challenging for promotion.
  19. I don't get the 'money grabber' argument. Football is a (short) career and you're worth whatever someone is willing to pay you on the open market. If GH knows he can be paid more elsewhere than we're willing to pay (due to youth player pay structure or having spaffed all our money on old, slow crocks) then good luck to the lad.
  20. The Khabib vs Ferguson fight has fallen through for the fourth time - Ferguson pulls out due to injury. Gutted. However, Max Holloway steps up on less than a week's notice to fight Khabib for the 155 lb title. Incredible fight.
