    Not putting players on furlough has cost each club £millions.


    I still don't understand why it wasn't done. 

    The argument for that is the amount of tax footballers generate far outweighs the furlough scheme.


    Why should the government fund footballers when they are in the top wage bracket in this country and are probably one of the highest tax payers. 

    The government would be worse off.

  2. You have to work out points gained, apply that over a 46 game period then deduct the 6 points surely...


    Any other way of doing it would mean it would work out at a much harsher penalty, apply it first and half way through the season its weighting would be like having a 12 point penalty.


    Hopefully we got points at Cov and against Wycombe and keep ourselves out of the bottom 3 regardless.

  3. Willing to mix it when he needs to, calm in possession, big strong can pass, athletic and 19yrs old.


    get him tied down to a 4 year contract before the weekend is up.

    Can I ask a thicko question. How does the process of going into Administration work? Is it DC that calls it? Or the people you owe money to if not paid? 

    Would likely be HMRC, if we have cash flow issues then paying our taxes will no doubt be a struggle. We have no assets bar a few players under contract in a couple of months time. 

    DC could do it himself to stop having to give refunds but that wouldn’t be very honourable would it

  6. We can’t pay the ones we’ve got, we are trying to flog Windass to cover this months wages, the club aren’t processing season ticket refunds or trying to hold onto the cash whichever way you look at it.


    We are skint. Have already sold the family silver ie ground. In complete turmoil & 90% of the squad are out of contract in 5 months.


    Can’t fault people’s optimism not much of that around lately but can see it getting much worse over the next 6 months.

  7. So we look destined for the drop.


    Maybe a complete reset isn’t such a bad idea as long as we can actually get promoted the following season...big IF but it would stop the club haemorrhaging millions of pounds and might stop Chansiri from potentially carrying us into oblivion. 


    Just think of the complete overhaul we will have to do, 25 players on an average £2.5k per week.


    The total wage bill including agents fee’s, player bonuses cannot exceed £3,250,000 for the whole season.


    Wouldn’t envy any manager taking that on.

  8. I honestly think we only need 3 attacking players. 2 Forwards and an attacking wide player.


    If we had some pace and power up front it completely changes the dynamics of how we can play, it gives more space for midfield to keep the ball, Bannan more time on the ball and chances of better forward passing options.


    We can make do in all other areas of the squad if we have to but we need goals, pace and movement up front.


    Who would actually join us in our position I’ve no idea, but we need to find some inspired loans like Kenwye, Murphy, Marshall etc 

  9.                                Westwood


    Palmer.          Iorfa.          Borner.        Penney


    Harris.          Brown.        Bannan.       Reach


                         Windass.       Paterson


    May as well have a go, direct football, overlapping full backs. Bannan/Brown can’t play in a 2 man midfield etc etc time to change our shape and be positive.

  10. This is the problem, we know it, the opposition know it Dawson will make a mistake in most games.


    While his shot stopping is pretty decent, he has a habit of parrying it back into dangerous areas and it keeps costing us.


    Dawson, Wildsmith & Westwood all three probably aren’t the answer.


    So frustrating seeing Dawson make the same mistakes over and over, over a season it’s going to put us in trouble.
