  1. Haha 2 or 3 years? he'll be lucky to get 2 or 3 months before the usual gobshites start up.
  2. Since when did it become acceptable to abuse and hound a manager out of a job? It's expected of the usual poisonous, classless suspects and trolls on here but everyone else shouldn't lower themselves He isn't what we need at this time but no one can deny he has had one hand tied behind his back, he's kept us ticking over for a season, which is just about all we can do until we ship out the big earners and sort our finances out, he's in no way responsible for our current mess, he will ultimately be forgotten. It's become so hard to still love football and it's the grown adults acting like spoilt, petulant children that follow it, that make it impossible

    Annoyed here too! i've chatted to them, they say it's being blacked out because it's being picked up by their international partner!? not one of the reasons I remember for games not being shown

    You seem to be ignoring the question and I'd quite like to know the answer as well, so I'll try, how much did we offer him?
  6. We were losing 5 million a year under Mandaric with a wage bill less than half the size, I think we all know the plan was promotion in 2-3 seasons, it didn't happen and now we need to take our medicine. I really don't like that we are not allowed to renew contracts, i'm thinking of Bannan and Joao who could fetch 10 million+, and we could lose them for nothing, how is that a fair punishment for a club who has broken financial rules!? the rules are supposed to stop clubs going bust are they not?

    That's just not true is it. We've spent as much money as we possibly can under the current 'rules' Our problem then was our starting position and the squad when he arrived, very few of top championship quality. Our problem now is only a handful of players we've since brought in are worth any serious money. We need to start to get out of this hole by being run more ruthlessly, I would start by selling anyone who is out of contract next summer including Joao and Bannan (if they won't sign new contracts) we simply can't afford to have players run down their contracts. I agree with others, we are crying out for a DOF, or a Paul Aldridge type.
  8. I mean..what the hell is this all about!? We really need to stray from the template of.. - makes up scenario based on nothing - GETS REALLY ANGRY AT SAID SCENARIO IN THE VERY NEXT SENTANCE AS IF IT'S NOW FACT it's very unhealthy.

    To those that think this is just a way to get money into the club for FFP reasons, wasn't the same said about the club 1867 scheme? we didn't have 10,000 mysterious investors in that, did we!?

    It's a no from me, more than happy with Jos. However, people underestimate how tough a task it is to turn around a sinking ship (and one that's been sinking for 5+ years). Regardless of budget, to assemble a completely new team and get them gelling and promotion ready inside a season is bloody tough, and I don't even particularly like Bruce or the way he jumped from club to club in his earlier career. His overall record speaks for itself. It's why I will always rate the job Megson done here.
  11. An absolute disgrace we are paying him £60k a week, we'll never get rid, who ever agreed a deal to pay him £70k a week wants shooting, that £80k a week could be used on 3 or 4 decent championship players.
  12. We pay Middlesbrough whatever and whenever we agreed to pay them. You are describing how it gets reported financialy to the FL not how we pay Middlesbrough.
