  1. I wouldn’t say we bottled it, but I agree with your sentiment. It’s not as if we’re playing youngsters. There’s seasoned pros all the way through that side that should be able to see out games like tonight’s, Blackburn, WBA etc etc. It’s infuriating.
  2. He’ll be praying he doesn’t, cos no doubt some of our Neanderthal fans will boo him the instant he appears.
  3. They’ve had it forced on them tbh. I was only thinking of a partner for Fletch. Seems like since Jos left none of the youngsters are getting a sniff. That’s NOT me defending Jos btw, just stating a fact.
  4. Good job he doesn’t defend on his own then eh?
  5. maybe even chuck a youngster in, if there’s one knocking on the door?
  6. Well thanks for that. But this isn’t an Odubajo bashing thread
  7. I agree to some extent. However, Monk knows that apart from a strong starting 11 he hasn’t got much in reserve. It’s tricky and I’ve criticised him when playing 1 up especially at home, but again that’s down partly to his options.
  8. Is upfront. We are defending very well, playing decent and creating. But apart from Fletch we are toothless up top. This is creating pressure in games like tonight when we should be 2 or more clear going into the last 10 minutes. We’ve dropped at least 10 points in the last stages of games and primarily they are games where we should be home and dry. Alas it’s not something we can solve easily. Options are minimal and none seem to be working. But it’s by no means panic stations. Not at all.
  9. exactly. These markets are very fragile, the slightest movement (a few £10 bets) can see odds change significantly. It always happens when a new manager is imminent. Having said that, if you got 100/1 a few weeks ago then we’ll done.
  10. We’re gonna lose him soon for serious money.
  11. But if he started every game with Fletch, he still wouldn’t score more than about 15 goals. I believe one of the reasons Monk plays 1 up is because he doesn’t have a partner for fletcher who he believes is good enough for that role. If you had a decent poacher alongside Fletch for a season the pair would get 30 minimum. IMO it’s the one main part of the jigsaw we are missing.
  12. how many games has he played this season in his proper position, out wide? Comes on v Swansea and Charlton, plays wide, instantly creates a goal. The bloke is quality - when on the wing.
  13. Exactly. Parachute payments are there to HELP teams newly promoted to the PL. They ensure the team can invest adequately (mainly player wages) to give themselves a chance of staying up, with a safety net should they go back down. If PP didn’t exist far more teams would come straight back down - would that be a good thing? Also - has been proven many times - parachute payments give no guarantee that a relegated team would go straight back up.
  14. My worry reading this thread is that many fans feel the FFP rules are wrong (fair enough) and so don’t seem to care that we’ve perhaps broken them. Rules are rules, whether you like them or not. If it’s proven DC has treat the EFL with contempt and purposely tried to hide the fact he’s broken those rules, he deserves everything coming his way. Alas many of our fans will ignore those facts and continue to blame the EFL and their new Liverpool supporting Chairman or whatever he is..........
  15. The point is, the company didn’t exist because we didn’t sell the ground back in early 2018, did we? DC says we did - well we couldn’t have, cos the buyer didn’t exist back then. that’s the point
  16. Heard the expert on radio at lunchtime. He said the company that supposedly bought Hillsborough, didn’t even exist when the sale went through. He also said it was 14 months after that that land registry was updated with new owners. Seemed to indicate DC has tried it on and got caught, hence the type of charge we are facing. He also mentioned the value of the ground which seems a little harder to accuse us of ‘over valuing’
  17. hence DC must accept he’s gonna get criticised massively by many. We’ll survive, of course. It’ll be a few more years of championship footy at least - let’s not forget the ground HAS been sold, the fact it maybe was too late for the 17/18 accounts it will show on our accounts on the 18/19 books and help us going forward. I remember back when we gave our shares up to Milan M, many people at the time feared where we might end up with different owners. DC took the gamble. Didn’t work. End of.
  18. River closures to be announced on match days??
  19. Water level now. Much lower than last night
  20. Don hasn’t burst a M/hall yet, false info from highways agency
  21. i don’t think there was much they could do. The council / environmental agency spent millions clearing the rivers so water could move better, I guess in the next 12 hours we’ll see how they did. unlike 2007 tho the large amount of leaves that have fallen in the past few weeks will be an issue with drains
  22. They could have easily forseen this and cancelled it this morning. The warnings were there, this has been forecast for a few days
  23. well when the Don breaks it’s banks at Meadowhall again (as in 2007) I think this time it might be pretty serious
