    Derby day coming

    Hate to say it but gonna get hammered. They use the wings well, we are too narrow and can’t defend out wide...could end up being their version of the Boxing Day massacre really hope I’m wrong
  2. Anyone know of good parking spots for saturdays game?

    Same old fans every time.

    I saw the formation and selection last night and knew that there would be zero width in the team. Low and behold, zero width! Too congested in the middle of the park with no outlets out wide. Tip, tap, tip, tap, run forward 10 yards, turn round in a circle and pass back to hector/pudil/Dawson....this happened all night long. Fox and Baker constantly having to deal with 2 attacking QPR players as there was minimal tracking back by the midfield. That was awful last night, I’m going to vent about it but it’s now the next day and it’s time to move onto Birmingham. I just hope lessons are learnt, passion from the team is required and some bloody movement up front. I really really fear we are going to get hammered at the Sty and the pigs are going to be able to sing about their own massacre.

    Queens Park Rangers - V - Wednesday OMDT

    Run forward 10 yards, stop, turn, play it back to hector/pudil. There’s the first half Wednesday highlights.....

    Queens Park Rangers - V - Wednesday OMDT

    Tip tap tip tap tip tap, no end product. Midfield too static, playing too deep. Dawson needs to open his gob and command the area, speak to his defenders. Hector is having a good game, that’s the only positive this half

    Another good game

    Standard owlstalk..... gonna be bedwetting everywhere. Not bothering with this site after this post until tomorrow. Calmer more rational posters will be on then

    Champ keepers - Dawson

    Exactly, no player should get in the side on reputation but on the hard work they show in training, taking the opportunity in games and ultimately holding onto the shirt that we as supporters hold so dear to our hearts

    Bristol City - 2 years ago....

    Brought a city supporting mate up for that game, he didn’t talk to me for the entire 4 hour journey home!! Tammy Abraham bossed our defence first half, remember thinking that he’s got a great future

    Free loans!!

    Crystal Palace have become the first Premier League club to offer loan players to lower league sides for free - but only if they play. Mark Bright, the club's director of U23 development has written to all teams in Sky Bet League One, League Two and the National League, amid growing concerns over the fees that the country's top clubs are demanding for loan players, according to The Times. A club source has told Sky Sports News that the policy was the best way to guarantee as many of their young talents as possible bridged that gap between U23s and senior football - by enjoying first-team football at another club. Got to play for it to be free but have Palace got anyone who could be of interest us??
  11. Park at the multitude of secure car parks around the ground....yeah it’s a fiver but better than your car being robbed! before you all jump down my throat I’m not condoning the thieving barstewards but if the coppers ain’t doing owt have a bit of common sense and remove yourself from the situation

    If they scrap parachute payments

    Wage cap is required. No more than 80% of turnover can go on wages. Will bring down the stupid transfer fees and reduce players out of control wages to a manageable level.

    Cardiff in for FF

    Can’t replace them if we are under an embargo....

    Is football becoming uninvestable?

    Simple answer.....players wages. when one player gets 400k a week that trickles down to other players to the extent that average lower league players demand 30-50k a week. The prize for promotion is so great that clubs do anything to get there. Players agents know that and ask stupid money as one club will pay it eventually. salary cap is what’s needed like in super league. Clubs should only be able to spend 80% of turnover on wages. That would sort out the Mess in my opinion

    Where are the MODERATE #SWFC fans?

    Been on a while, not posted much but a season ticket holder for over 20 years. i think we have a great squad this year. The injuries coming back are like new signings. I’m optimistic for the new season and can’t wait to go especially after a full pre season where Jos has been able to stamp his style of play on the team. I do not agree with pricing at the moment. Whilst season tickets aren’t too bad, U11 23 quid is amazing, membership is appalling. POTD is too high including for away fans. We charge stupid prices so they do too for us, drop prices and introduce a beer tent for away fans at the back of the Lep and rince them that way. Shirts are stupid prices too but looking at other clubs prices it’s about the same. Radio Sheffield, I live south of Oxford so doesn’t effect me. What kills me at the moment is the small % of supporters (and pigs in blankets) that moan at everything the club does and make complete random poo up trying to distablise the club. The Chairman does not deserve the abuse he gets on some social media sites. At the end of the day he’s put his money where his mouth is and has backed the club 100%. Yes he’s made mistakes but every person does. Now we are cutting our cloth accordingly. Players...Abdi....regular for Watford, amazing signing, not worked out due injury...Matias....3rd top scorer in Portugal playing from the wing, not worked out due injury......Jones, fantastic promotion record.....Palmer, one of our own.... All do not deserve the poo they get on social media There’s no need for the crap and let’s be honest, any player that sees this poo on social media will be effected by it. New season, fresh tactics, a squad of fully prepared players, surely can’t be like Preston last year.....come on you blue and white wizards.....WAWAW
