  1. Things change in football pretty quickly and I'm pretty sure they were in envy of us a few seasons ago... It's also easy to catch a cold with the new rules and regulations in the championship and things can go south pretty quickly as we are witnessing at the moment...
  2. You've got to put everything into perspective, as the rules have changed now.... The (impractical/ unaligned) financial fair play rules are what's causing us (and other clubs) issues at the moment... Whereas before it was just the fact we had a massive debt that we (stupidly) were really responsible about paying back (for forever) rather than just entering into administration like most other Premiership clubs did (at the time) to clear and start again....
  3. At the time I wasn't implying this statement to SWFC (us), but the teams around the mid table mark like Birmingham, Huddersfield, Coventry etc... We've (clearly) always been in the relegation battle with 12 (now 6) points deduction from day one... I was implying then that we still have hope of catching a lot of teams above us - regardless... However since I made this statement the wheels have (well and truly) fallen off and our form (run of results) has stalled big time in crucial games and so I agree with your Point 3 in terms of battling...
  4. In football even loads of investment isn’t the answer, which Frank Lampard at Chelsea is an example of after doing well on peanuts for them and then failing/ being sacked after spending big time on players...
  5. Other than yesterday - I don't even see how why we would compare ourselves to them, as they are based on form (other than yesterday) likely to be fighting to stay up at the end of the year... FFS - we are going to do it this year and next year is our worry...
  6. In terms of Tone that can be taken out of context by the reader, which is unfortunately the problem with some written comments/ correspondence, as per this format... I therefore apologise if my wording has been abrupt/ tw@tish, as this wasn't my intent, which was just to clearly state my view on your view.
  7. Sorry, but my views on who is the better team are based on/ in line with the competition that the teams have entered into - therefore who finishes higher at the end of the season (all games played) is (potentially) a better team albeit we have a 6 point deduction... Also Barnsley are still potential relegation candidates (at the moment) so if they go down (at the end of the season) and with almost 1/2 a season still to play (it may still happen) - I would also base my view on their plan working/ not working on the final results/ position in the league than their position now/ recen
  8. Sorry I think as much as us would be better terminology...
  9. I think that Chansiri is also trying to do his best for SWFC and from what I can se his son cares more than us, but has been let down (massively) by CC with not gaining us promotion with a team that was more than capable with sh1tty tactics... He (CC) should've just stayed clear for year 1, as he stated he would do (but didn't) and then what happened with Huddersfield in Yr2 absolutely baffles me (still) and also any Huddersfield fans that I know who actually thank him for the result - wtf...
  10. The same thoughts as me + if it's working for us don't change it - especially in our circumstances....
  11. At the moment they are way down the performance table in comparison to us and mediocre in terms of league position so I think we should see if their plan works before discussing further....
  12. We've also had some great players, but we fail to benefit from them due to our tactics... For example we all knew that Joao was a great player when we (SWFC) played fast attacking football and fed him quick through balls... However he turned to absolute dog poo when we started the CC porkie pea negative tactics with playing it back (from an attacking position), then across the back line (a lot of times), then up the other wing (not playing in dangerous cross though), then back, across the back line, etc, etc and then an eventual long ball to the opposition... Then the managers since haven't b
  13. Under S Gray we signed some great players for peanuts that were influential in CC's (apparent success) over the following seasons... However we just pushed SG to the side for CC to come in with a few key players (big bucks for us) to watch and then tactically screw up our chances of promotion....
  14. Agreed - I expect us to finish above them (and Rotherham) in the league this year (incl. the 6 Points deduction)... I'm also pretty suspect on this entire Topic being a wind up given the title and then some further comments...
  15. I'd expect this statement if they were unbeaten and first in the table, but not for a mediocre (mid table) side (halfway into the season) that has had 1 good result...
