  1. There's a new(ish) book about it all 😉.


    My thoughts simply are that the Burtenshaw era was the 'Lowest Ebb' for the club. Although the team fell further in terms of league position - under the stewardship of Len Ashurst and chairman Bert McGee - there was by that stage a plan. 


    Steve Burtenshaw was one of the few people who didn't want to talk to me about the period. He found it depressing and upsetting I was told. Wrong man, wrong time, wrong place are my thoughts of his time at S6. Good coach, but joining a club with no money, with players used to failure and with no managerial experience meant it was doomed to failure. I found several examples of him being a good guy though 🙂

    You do realise the clubs agree and ratify the rules that all the league have to abide by, it’s not the EFL who have broke the rules but the Clubs that can’t stick to them, what do you expect the EFL to do let clubs get away with cheating. Can you imagine the backlash from the clubs that didn’t cheat if they said oh yes fine do what you want...

    Yes, I do realise all that. I was somewhat flippant about not caring about Derby's guilt or innocence. My problem is the incompetent way it's policed/judged. 


    The EFLs handling of both Derby and our cases was nothing short of abysmal. Having made a pig's ear of charging Derby - they now have the brassneck to appeal. The championship season starts on Saturday, but again the league table is a fiction until the various cases are settled.


    To me, it is clear that the clubs (EFL) cannot regulate themselves, and an independent regulator must be the way forward. I know other views are available though!

    Yes that's the only possible reason he hasn't been signed up lol.

    Wonder if anybody has a minutes to goals stats of our strikers since he signed to see how he compares? 

    That's without noticing what he contributes in build up play and dragging CB away to allow other striker more freedom.

    It's just over (the equivalent of)  three games per goal in terms of minutes played. I'll see if I can find the link. I remember if being better than Marcus Tudgay, the last player to score 50 goals for the club.
