  1. Surely we should be teaching our ball boys the same tricks that a lot of other clubs do? Basically if we are losing or drawing get that ball back to our players immediately, I.e.run to get the ball and get it back in play. If we are winning then stroll to the ball and gently throw it in the general direction of our players.
  2. Went for a young un, cos most of the usual suspects are either loan or older players some of whom didn't play until the last few months and yes I know some were also frozen out.
  3. Totally agree but for every Gibson there are 5 sorry make taht 50 ,that have killed their clubs. At least we have one that cares.
  4. How about a Saudi prince ? Or an Italian who sacks managers every 4 weeks or a bunch of American glassmakers or a casino owner or ......... The list goes on...
  5. A few years ago sky used to pay forthe difference in average crowds and the televised crowd number. Anyone know if this still happens?
  6. Its not ego, its bringing money into the club.
  7. Here's a thought. Wonder if one of his English teachers supported Wednesday?
  8. cheers just spotted it and I thought it had changed recently.
  9. I was told it was a new card this year for all, but that was a few months back.
  10. That's probably why all our High Streets are full of Pound shops. :-) Sounds like the "£350m" is going a hell of a long way , what with the NHS, Farmers, Educational institutes, Film Makers, Fishing Industry , not to mention the run-down areas that really need the investment like Barnsley and Rotherham. I don't think there will be much left for anything else like sports development. Perhaps we need Nigel and Boris to help us understand exactly how much will be spent within each of those sectors. I am sure we will also have money to re-negotiate all these trade deals, move our border guards back to the UK, print out new passports!!! Anyhow, I will say no more on this matter, I am going to get a glass of German Beer, a slice of Spanish Ham and eat some Italian Olives before I sleep in my Danish Bed!!!!!
  11. Yes because we buy so much quality stuff from both Indonesia and China don't we? Just sounds like Poundland and SUFC club shop may be the only winners !!! And just to remind you that the EU will now be helping companies in their 27 countries in the EU to manufacture the goods that usually come from the UK. You also have to remember that any investment into the UK for development and supporting local communities will now vanish as they decide their 27 countries are more deserving. And if we don't like it, well tough!
  12. I think you will find that anyone who tries to come to this country outside the EU can't automatically bring their families with them. So certain players will not be coming. Also no-one answered my original question on Carlos and his coaching team?
  13. I agree and who can blame them? Oh hang on that will be the excuse the Brexit people will be using using when it all goes to sh** when our former European friends tell us to go away and they have found a new supplier in one of their european countries that can now actually provide what they need much cheaper because they don't have trade tariffs added to their goods.
  14. But that is the reason most people wanted to stop......................... So it won't happen......... What we have just done is like giving your friends a massive 2 fingers and told them all to F**K off we don't need you. Except we then expect them to open their arms back to us and talk to us but only on our terms and not theirs of course, because we are the greatest country in the world, and no country can possibly live without us. If you believe the last statement will happen then you need to think again.
  15. No-One seems to have mentioned Carlos and his team, will they be able to get a work permit? With Boris and Farage in place I suspect their next step will no doubt be to get rid of ALL Johnny Foreigner types in the UK. Lets face it just as we all know England have the best football team in the world and we should have won all the World Cups and Euros if it wasn't for those pesky foreigners plotting against us.
  16. Does anyone think he looks a bit cross-eyed?
  17. Why does everyone keep comparing us to Prem sides?? Not only is their income far above ours , but a lot of their games are moved around for TV both Sky and BT seem to organise ALL of their fixtures. Sky do organise some of ours , but if we were Prem then our prices will no doubt be worked differently. BTW I just paid £38.50 for an Ipswich ticket......
  18. So are we really interested in someone who has problems getting into championship sides over the last 5 years at many different clubs and different managers? I wonder why that would be? My view is that he is simply not good enough!
  19. Terrible beer and lager, but guess you get the most profit...........................................
  20. So those crap beers now mean I won't be having a pint at Hillsborough anytime soon.
