  1. Happy with that. Strongest line up with the team available
  2. This needs asking. Now that the projection for this season should have been submitted by 1st March the club will know if we have failed or close to failing the ffp requirements. How much of the money lost in the last 2 years will go towards the ffp? How close are we to not meeting the requirements? If we have not met the requirements, what is the expected punishment? Since next season we will need to save money and have similar finances to the 15/16 season, what plans are in place to reduce the losses?
  3. Puts things into perspective a bit that some of our rivals who have stayed in this division lost more than us last year. I don't know what they have done this year but Derby, Bristol City, Reading (£30m wages!) And Brentford all lost more in 15-16. So we are far from alone at being at risk of not meeting the criteria. On the face of it it does look bad. However are these just general accounts rather than the amount you can lose for FFP or P&S or whatever it's called? So money spent on the ground and training facilities etc will be included in these accounts but aren't included in the FFP calculations. That could easily be £5m over the last 2 years. Maybe more. Depends what is included in the FFP calculations. So that could leave us with at least a £15m loss for this year. Not ideal and looking like a challenge but far from conclusive that we will fall foul of the criteria. The club would have known about this for a while which is why we got club 1867 introduced etc. I have not been a fan of the pricing since it was introduced and far from a fan of the 1867 scheme but I don't think this is as concerning as a lot of people are making out
  4. And 11th March the year before
  5. Jo’s - not very good

    I'm pissed off. Very pissed off at a poor performance. But blaming jos for this?? No. Person to blame is in the opposition's dugout. The key games are Ipswich and Bolton. If we don't get 4 points from them then I'll worry. Talk of relegation is premature. Give jos a chance. He deserves it with the absolute rubbish Carlos left
  6. Can't see anywhere else, but check twitter out anyway. 8.05 Kick Off.
  7. That's incredible. So incredible I had to look this up. I thought I had them when I saw we beat Forest in 94... yeah 1 year, but Forest were in Division 1/Championship then. We have had some terrible results, especially in the first few years of the 21st century but had chances of beating some teams at Hillsborough. Derby when they had that terrible season... lost on pens, Fulham and Man City before their billions but United are the last top division team we've beaten in the FA Cup. And they were the only team in the top division we did beat that year. So that got me thinking when was the last team we beat someone in the top division in 90 minutes (I bet work love me). The answer: At Hillsborough (and without a replay), it was the year before, again against West Ham. 83/84 4th round against Coventry - before I was born!
  8. BBC stats

    I think up to our second goal we were the better side. I'm sure the stats would have looked differently after 50 minutes. We deservedly went ahead, had a lot of possession in their half and Joao took his chance. Derby did come back in it possession wise and should have scored when they got down the left after we gave the ball away. An accurate cross would have levelled the match for an easy tap in but the cross was awful. Other than that Derby didn't really offer much threat. They went for it when 2 down though. There was a scramble or two in the box where they must have had about 4 or 5 shots in about a minute which were all blocked which will skew the shots. They were exposed at the back because they went for it and on another day I would hope we would make them pay for it.
  9. Sean Clare getting the Hirst treatment

    It would be proof that he hasn't been given "the Hirst treatment" though. There are contract disputes all the time
  10. Full Faith in Luhukay

    Boardroom disappeared too. Of all the things that have happened in the past and the boardroom disappears now? What's happened? What have I missed?
  11. Rescinded red card.

    Last one I can remember was Brad Jones against Leeds. A long long long time ago
  12. Wildsmith or Westwood

    Wordsmith not at fault for first. He shouted for it. I heard it. And Venancio has held his hands up. But completely his fault for the second even if Butterfield did give the ball away. However let's not forget that Westwood has had his mistakes too. Home against Watford which was just like this. Away at Brentford last year was a bit of a shocker too. For me Westwood should play when fit but let's or shoot down wildsmith just because of this mistake
