  1. Anyone know how the wage structure works now in Leagues One and Two? I know they have wage caps not don't they? Was just wondering how it would work if we are relegated and players are under contract on wages that are over what the wage cap is? Does League One not have a parachute payment option the same as the one from the Premier League to the Championship?
  2. I get fed up of reading how many things that DC does that's against the grain of traditional footballing process. 10 Year Season Tickets Own Name Sponsorship Pay Structure Bespoke Shirt Designer These are just a few of the strange things we've had to hear. Why can't we just do things the same way as every other club?
  3. Probably happen when we get relegated as they are on wage caps in league one.
  4. Didn't think you were a fan of Reach on the wing or wingers? Or was that Gurujan?
  5. He will probably be known as Sydney knowing our luck.
  6. Yes and no. Wildsmith and Dawson weren’t playing first team football for us then as often as they are no so their flaws in meaningful matches could/would still be there. Also you have to factor in that Westwood is another 2-3 years older than he was when Rhodes left and all goalkeepers have a shelf life at the top level. There is every chance that Westwood has gone past his expiry date and Wildsmith and Dawson just aren’t good enough for regular football at this level. Sometimes you just have to be brutally honest. Pointless going back to something that was working in the past when it can’t be replicated. My personal view is that we are at that point now where we ‘may’ need to drop down a division to strengthen accordingly again. With what’s required now we just don’t have the money to throw at it.
  7. A tradition that’s been part of football for how long? Why does DC feel the need to always have to do things against the grain?
  8. It could just as easily have been DC saying there’s no cash available. In an ideal world I guarantee that Monk wouldn’t have wanted to do that deal.
  9. Unfortunately that’s because Sunday morning referees mostly don’t know the rules or are scared to give reds. You get full blown punch ups in the pitch at times and all the referee will say is don’t do that again.
  10. You don’t have to make contact with the player if you look at the rules for dangerous play.
  11. If we finish 20th and United are relegated that would be a successful season in most fans view. Let’s not forget we started on minus points so to stay up under those circumstances is huge.
  12. With the foundations Pulis is setting and the work he’s getting out of the players we should start to improve when we’re able to bring in a couple of quality additions. At least the teams in and around us are generally only getting draws and defeats. I feel more confident under Pulis. You can’t plan for sendings off but we’ve managed to claw performances out after going to 10 men early under Pulis. That wouldn’t have happened under previous regimes.
  13. Those photos suggest it was a red and over the top of the ball. In real-time probably didn’t look as bad. If he was in the opposition side you’d probably say it was worthy of a red.
  14. You’ve seen her dancing right? She won’t be earning much coin.
  15. Wolves brought in Nuno Esposito and Ruben Neves and that was the start of their good times. That was all down to agents and a gamble on the part of the owners. Basically they gambled and it paid off (primarily as they appeared to have more of a plan). Chansiri gambled after Wembley and had no real plan. Just look at Nuno Espirito Santos now compared to Carlos Carvalhal and you can’t even look at them in the same breath.
  16. I think it’s virtually guaranteed that Pulis will play Iorfa at RB when fit. People may not like it but he’s played there before and is athletic. Gives the added height on set pieces both defensively and offensively so to Pulis it’s a no brainier.
  17. It’s a lot to do with the expectation at the club as well. He could be saying tough gig because he knows he has no money to play with (or Monk previously) and therefore what money has been spent has been wasted. He’s sort of letting those outside the bubble know what’s going on inside the bubble so to speak.
  18. Played there on occasion for his last club but it would be a last resort for me.
  19. Any point is a good point. We do need to start turning some draws into wins though which goes without saying. People hate playing against a Pulis side and it’s not easy on the eye but effective as it’s disruptive. Defensively we aren’t looking too bad and that’s without the likes of Iorfa, Dunkley and Flint. I bet Pulis can’t wait until January to sort out up top and out wide.
  20. Thnk our options were limited unfortunately. Especially with the -12 point start. The minute he was able to bring in his own back room team the signing options were limited. Very strange summer. Hopefully we may be able to bring in a couple of better players in up top and out wide in January now that 4-4-2 is seen as the way to go. We’re not in as bad a state as we were at the start of the season.
