  1. Guess we have under a month to get out of the embargo and start the rebuild.
  2. We have played Stoke, Reading and Swansea in that run of draws .... all will be aiming for a playoff spot come the end of the year.
  3. Wilder had never managed a club bigger than Oxford, never managed in the championship never mind the prem. Not saying Cook is gonna be the next wilder, but you just cant dismiss him cause of what he has done in his previous clubs. But then the comparisons are pretty solid: Both got promoted in the lower leagues with 3 different clubs. He cant be held responsible for ANYTHING to do with the wigan relegation, they were the 4th best team in the 2nd half of last season when looking at the form table (we were 2nd btm)
  4. I think Cook would be a great appointment, obviously nothing is guaranteed. But look at the piggies appointing a manager who hadn't much league one experience apart from 2 lower league promotions and took them so close to Europe in 4 years.
  5. I hate to bring his name up but WIlder was only famous for getting 2 lower division sides promoted and look how far he took the pigs. Just cause certain managers haven't set the division on fire doesn't mean the wont do a good job here. Comparing our end to 2019/20 season to Wigans 2019/20 gives a hint who the better manager is (We were 23rd Wigan were 4th)
  6. .........................Wildsmith ................Iorfa......Lees.....Borner ..........................Pelupessy Odubajo.............Bannan.............Reach .............................Brown ................Windass.........Paterson
  7. Any news on how close to first team fitness Dunkley is ? Dawson Borner Iofa Van Aken (or Dunks) Harris Luongo Reach Bannan Brown Windass Peterson
  8. Kid from City was a full transfer also. Only loan we have at the moment is Izzy.
  9. It's been talked about before moving away from S6 but it always seems to get mentioned about moving further out, Like the brownfield sites around Meadowhall or Attercliffe. All football grounds are being build further out of towns because its cheaper and parking is better located. Sadly as we all know that means its a bit soulless and lack of pubs to go drink in as mentioned. Look at Stoke, Coventry, Bolton and middlesborough for example.
  10. I wonder if with COVID and no crowds coming in for the start of the season, will there be other clubs struggle and go into administration ? Could be that us, Derby arent the only ones starting on -12 points. If you was a club in the league with accounts close to broke then this season would be a good season to go into administration and would make it a 2 tier league.
  11. Not sure if this is still available? Looking for 1 if it is still on offer?
  12. How about we buy Owlerton stadium and just move the rebuild a matching stadium to Hillsborough over there? Gives more parking spaces, room for expansion, keeps us in the area? I'm bored and love this kind of sim city style poo!!
  13. Im not sure I would like to leave Hillsborough, as many others have said the history and tradition are massive pluses for me. But if we moved I could only see us moving out towards Meadowhall... connection to the M1, Train station, Tram stations, Parking spaces etc. The roads would def need upgrading to take on the massive extra football traffic. Like here they joked on for April fools
  14. Looking for 1 adult Stoke ticket also if there's any going?
  15. Guessing was thinking Brentford, Pigs and Derby = 5pts
  16. I'd take this off your hands but I'm based in Manchester
  17. Also interested if it's still going ? Based in Manchester so will happily pick it up Saturday am.
