  1. You do know he won a Golden Boot don't you?
  2. I've genuinely got more experience for the role prior to him joining SWFC. Salesman with operational responsibility is a big no.
  3. I've watched the first 4 series back over the last few weeks. I'd completely forgotten too. It's really helped because it feels like Series 6 piecing everything together. Also reminded me how good Series 2-3 are.
  4. Kachunga up there with our most atrocious signings. I was pleased we got him too.
  5. There's only so many times I can say 'told you so' Criminal that Rhodes wasn't given the opportunity this year. Will cost us our Championship status.
  6. Yep - feels like a completely different world. Very much looking forward to reading the book and a great topic. I was born 2 months after this season but the characters in that squad are the ones that I've been brought up to see as heroes. Their legacy still runs through the club and is what once gave me hope that we'd see a team of that stature and quality again. Not so sure anymore!
  7. Jibbed an Uber from the coach station with the author at Stoke away on Boxing Day last year, so just ordered a copy to pay back my half. I've felt guilty since - probably my fault we've been so bad on the pitch since that game.
  8. Contract up at the end of the year? Get him in the team - he'll have a point to prove to new clubs and he can score the goals to keep us up. I have absolutely no doubt that if we'd have played to his strengths in a front two and built a team around him this year we'd be in a much better position.
  9. Going to keep reposting this. Rhodes deserves his chance in a front 2. Paterson has done enough to keep his place but Rhodes deserves a run.
  10. Said it a thousand times but my favourite player we've had since I was a child. At times absolutely genius. That 6-0 game against Leeds I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It might look like he's dropped a bit but he's always been a homebird, never moved from his hometown and now he's got an 18 month deal up the road. If he stays fit he'll be a local legend for them.
  11. Not half the footballer Nuhiu was but gets double the credit cos he runs around a lot. Can't knock him for his goals though. A team at our end of the league need plenty of shithouses and he's one for sure.
  12. Harrowing read this. Looks like the club once again hasn't done appropriate due diligence. The guy screams dodgy salesman and Chansiri's fell for it. Why would any respecting businessman who understood football be splashing this all over Instagram? He can't believe his luck and he's wanting to scream and shout about it to raise his profile in the short term. If this turns out to be anything other than a disaster I'll be mightily surprised. My only hope is that this company and him are just acting as a go-between for real investment from external
  13. Started a thread on this the other day and proved correct again today. It has to be in a two though - a straight swap for Windass won't show us Rhodes' value.
  14. Octagon is owned and ran separately by the University of Sheffield - a separate entity to those who work with the student union what runs Foundry. I can't remember the full politics of it as it was a while back, but a change of leadership meant that they vastly outpriced promoters from putting on gigs in there. The promoters in the Student Union and elsewhere would have had to pay exorbitant fees to put anything on in there - only making it viable for bigger events where the other venues in the SU were already in use and sold to capacity. This may have changed recently
