    Next 8 league fixtures

    After watching that today we’d be lucky to keep Chelsea under 5 goals. We’ll do well to get past Luton anyway
  2. Turner suceeded to an extent, he brought in Brunt, Whelan, McGovern and Maclean that summer. When Sturrock took us up it was with Turner’s players. This current squad needs a complete rebuild like we did then. It’s stale and most of them are has beens or never beens

    FA Cup replays

    True and the BBC shouldn’t be as influenced as commercial channels by the number of viewers. BT are looking to maximise their advertising revenue. Even though Man U v Reading is an awful choice for a live game it probably had more viewers than any other game they could have picked. I don’t think the BBC will be rushing to show us live again either after the Swansea replay last year

    FA Cup replays

    Broadcasters pick the games they think will get the most viewers. Virtually every Man U, Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs cup tie is shown live regardless of who they’re playing

    FA Cup replays

    Luton knocking us out wouldn’t really be classed as a shock. A team 2nd in League 1 against a team 16th in the championship. They’ll probably go into the game as slight favourites with the bookies. I’d be surprised if our game is televised

    POTG ticket prices

    Yeah 3 categories is enough. Cat A for pigs and Leeds, Cat C for midweek games, Cat B for all the rest
  7. Don’t think we’re that skint that we couldn’t pay him the last few weeks of his contract if that is the case. Only Chansiri knows why he’s not been sacked yet
  8. Our ticket pricing has almost become a non issue for this season now (apart from for the away fans coming). There’s barely anyone paying on the gate and reducing prices isn’t going to bring them back to watch an underperforming team and manager. The season ticket, membership and POTG prices for next year will be interesting

    He’s forming a consortium with Geoff Sheard to rescue us

    Not exactly an attractive proposition for a sale is it? The next owner will have to fund operating losses, continue to pay excessive wages to a number of players and is unlikely to be able to sign any new players. And the squad itself looks nowhere near a promotion challenging squad. I’d be surprised if DC sells, who’d buy us?

    You’re not factoring in the operating losses we have now and the future liabilities with the high earners we still have to pay for the next few years. The closest comparison to where we are now would be when we were relegated from the premier league with Hinchcliffe, Jonk, De Bilde, O Donnell and Donnelly still on the wage bill.

    Are we actually worth anything? We are a failing business. Anyone that buys us would have to take on the losses and still have to honour the contracts of Fletcher, Rhodes, Hutchinson, Lees, van Aken etc for the next couple of years. There’s plenty of failing football clubs that have been sold for £1 or some other nominal amount.

    You sound as deluded as Chansiri. He’s driven us off a cliff edge. We can’t sign anyone in January and have to sell whether DC is here or not

    Has anyone got Geoff Sheard’s number?

    It’s Chansiri that needs to go for the madness to end
