  1. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  9. He’s forming a consortium with Geoff Sheard to rescue us
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. It’s Chansiri that needs to go for the madness to end
  15. Facts: We’ve won 1 in 10 We’ve conceded the most goals in the league We’ve been in an embargo We’ve 5 of the highest paid players in the squad frozen out Have you got any facts?
  16. Looking through past seasons the lowest I can find is 7,316 for a second round replay against Tranmere in December 1978. We won that game 4-0
  17. What’s the lowest home crowd in our history for an FA cup tie? If Jos is still in charge, this one could be close
  18. A new manager would put a few thousand on the gate
  19. In the last 23 games I’ve been to, I’ve seen 2 wins
  20. All about opinions and I’m not saying they are the saviours of our season but in my view they would significantly improve us. The fact we’re conceding nearly two goals a game on average (more than anyone else in the league) and the seniors players haven’t even been called on to try shore it up is inexcusable.
  21. Do you think we’d have conceded 40 goals in 22 games with Westwood and Hutch playing?
  22. We’ve already played the bottom 3 at home and Rotherham so we don’t have many games left that we’ll go into as favourites. It’s hard to see where the next win is coming from at the minute. We are in trouble. Preston is a big game on Saturday. Lose that and we could be in the relegation zone by new year
