    Forestieri Red Card

    Never been a yellow card offence EVER Ridiculous decision I hope the ref is pleased with himself, all you ask for is a bit of consistency sadly seems like another ref who couldn’t resist not being the centre of attention. ANYONE who thinks FF deserves a yellow for that hasn’t got a clue about football or an emotional bone in their body.... complete farce of a decision.

    Summer Sort Out

    Hopefully Bruce will have a squad something like this going into next season Offer contracts to Westwood and Palmer only. Try and sign Hector and Arrons on permenant deals if possible. Westwood Dawson Wildsmith Ifora. Lees. Hector. Prem Loan?? Palmer. Prem loan? Thorniley. Fox Reach Hutchinson. Bannan. Forestieri Prem loan? Prem loan?? Arrons. Fletcher. Joao Winnall. Rhodes. Try and off load Nuhiu, Van Aken & Pelupessy Release: Pudil Jones Abdi Boyd Lee Hooper Matias Then refresh the squad completely in 2020 season, we might be something like competitive again in 2020 if Bruce is allowed to do his own thing.

    Could have been...

    I’m confident for next season, pick a consistent team, manager now knows the division inside out etc etc....we need a bit of luck with injuries but so does everybody else. If we could scrape together the funds to resign Westwood & Hector (on a loan) then find a way that FF, Fletch, Joao , Reach, Bannan can do their stuff consistently then we’ve got half a chance

    Hooper and Lee ...

    I can see someone taking a risk on Hooper, strikers are always at a premium and a team will say ‘IF’ we can keep him fit etc etc. He may end up going to the states As for Lee, I’m not sure anyone would take the risk on a normal contract even if it was just a 1 year deal. There maybe a chance he sticks around at the club on some type of pay as you play deal, but I think that’s unlikely. Were both fantastic players for us in their own way but think Bruce will release both in the summer.

    Worried about the playoffs?

    Yeah massive week Think if we have taken 9 points by 5pm next Saturday then we can have a tilt at it. Im sure Villa fans think they still got a shot at the play offs and they are 6 points in front of us but played two more games, Big week this tho!
  7. Playing Pelupessy is like playing with 10 men
  8. Take Pelupessy and Boyd out and swap with Joao and FF then we might play some attacking football for a change

    To be honest I’d start him then bring him off second half, we will probably be out the game in the last 30mins so I’d try and get him to make an impact from the start
  10. We’ve got enough to stay up just about with the team below even if we sell Reach and release all the out of contracts Dawson Hutchinson. Lees. Thorniley Baker. Pelupessy. Bannan. Penney Joao. Fletcher. Forestieri Wildsmith Fox Van Aken Kirby Winnall Nuhiu Rhodes Really weak in wide areas but if we can get through this season and next, then we can reshape the squad in 20/21 season and we would have circa 20 million plus scope for players if the chairman wants to give it another go within FFP/ P&S

    FFP: Break or Be Broken

    They have tightened the rules so they can appoint any penalty they see fit, I think Brum are about to get a hefty fine but a MASSIVE points deduction which will act as a deterrent to other clubs us included
  12. Dawson Wildsmith Baker Lees Thorniley Penny Van Aken Bannan Hutchinson Reach Pelupessy Winnall Forestieri Nuhiu Joao Am I right in thinking these are the players who have featured who are still under contract for next season?
  13. There are a few things in that statement that will get people’s backs up, He implied at the fans forum that supporter investment is a drop in the ocean compared to his investment which is true, however he also implied it didn’t make a difference how much fans put in, which you could say is also true given the levels of cash being hemmoraged currently. However he cannot seriously think after he has said all the above that a new fans scheme is going to generate any revenue at all?? I mean seriously why would anyone think that’s the way out of this mess....completely deluded. We are already paying as a fan base some of the highest prices in the EFL to watch an average side with a couple of good players. He has squandered millions, and seems like it was boom or bust over a three year plan with little foresight on year 4 & 5 and what to do if we didn’t go up. The next 18 months are all about staying in this division.

    FF and Joao - positive news

    Everyone will be fit for the Chelsea match, expect Hooper to start
  15. Thanks for explaining, appreciate it, going back on topic I’d sell Reach to the highest bidder hopefully for close to 15 million.
