  1. He was about to sign a contract with Charlton when he got a call on the pig phone. God I wish Charlton were a bit quicker to get him signed up.
  2. Yeah, but I’ll possibly be dead by then so don’t have to experience it.
  3. Well, I hope he isn’t as reliable in ensuring we get penalties.
  4. And, our points deduction for putting a transaction in the wrong year, were to be in the wrong year.
  5. Unless DC sold us promptly I suspect we’d have bought lots of players who were new to the PL, gone down, found ourselves stuck with expensive players who were now disinterested and who had few admirers amongst other clubs. The parachute payments would be running out this year so we would be about to feel similar pain to what we are doing now... Although we would probably not have had to sell our own ground... yet.
  6. Although it reads that way, I can’t see Biggs knowing any more than anyone else. If it had been decided it would have been leaked. I take it that he means we need points to cushion us in the event of a deduction.
  7. Think we’ll stay up by the skin of our teeth this season, possibly only due to Wigan’s deduction. Then start next season on -12.
  8. At least it kills the ‘it’s the fans being too difficult to play in front of’ nonsense that some like to spout.
  9. I’m watching them now and they’re competing well against Wolves, working hard, well drilled etc. But hinchcliffe was saying how they play ‘silky football’. Many other commentators say similar. I think that’s a bit of a myth which is somehow perpetuated. Don’t get me wrong, I’d give my right arm to be where they are, playing how they do. But this passing, attacking football I keep hearing about doesn’t tally with what I have seen this season.
  10. I think (well I know I did) many of us feared he could have been right with those predictions. The pelters he tended to get were for his obsession with Leeds’ away support and commercial revenue, even when we were significantly better than them on the pitch.
  11. No. That Brass Monkey opposite park shows them all.
  12. Banner Cross are advertising showing Pigs tomorrow night. An establishment in Hillsborough is showing our game tomorrow.
  13. Garlic Chilli Chicken, onion Bhaji, keema nan, mushroom rice.
  14. Aberdeen think they’ll be having reduced crowds in by September. Can’t see away fans being allocated tickets though as it would encourage mass public transport usage.
  15. If. And I stress if, we have won I sincerely hope DC sees it as a shot across the bows rather than complete vindication and we change our approach somewhat.
