  1. How far behind are we?

    We’re some way short of automatic promotion, that’s for sure. The lower half of the playoffs is attainable with one or two additions. It’s so difficult to tell, at the moment Millwall are going great guns. Likewise earlier in the season, Bristol City and United. I doubt many would have expected any of them to be challenging for the playoffs at the start of the season. More than anything consistency is what’s needed if you’re going to be up there. We’ve been sadly lacking in this department all season. I think we could do it, but as it stands I see mid table as where we’d finish next season, so tweaks must be made in the summer.
  2. So David Hirst regrets

    Can’t really blame him. A chance to play for the biggest club in the country for any player is one you’d want to take
  3. Player of the season?

    Adam Reach. He's not necessarily had as high a high as some players, like Nuhiu is in at the moment, but over the course of the season he's been the most consistent.
  4. I'm a regular lurker, don't post that often though. I can't keep up with all the threads!
  5. I'll say hello. I'm a disable fan, hence the name. Had a season ticket since 93/94. Have to say the club have always been good for disabled fans from my perspective.
  6. I'd go with exactly the same line up.
  7. Have we got enough? The embargo thread

    Its not that easy to just git rid of players, we'd either have to pay them off, so saving no money, or get a buyer. I can realistically see some players being attractive to other clubs, but even if they meet our requirements, will the players want to leave us and go elsewhere? Given a mostly fit squad has done well for us in the previous two seasons, I think a fully fit squad next year could do well again. They're older now though, so that could cost us. I could see us challenging for sixth, should we be lucky with injuries next year, but reinforcements would be needed to be aiming higher I'd think.
  8. FFP and avoiding an embargo

    Not sure why you think we'd get less than we paid for Reach. He's been near ever present and been a stand out performer, in an admittedly poor team. I don't see how that would decrease his value.
  9. Well done boys. When it went 1-1 I'm sure we all though 'not again', so to go on and get a winner is fantastic. Great way to go in to the international break.
  10. Pre match music

    Kaytranada - Vivid Dreams? Edit: sorry don’t know how to embed the video
  11. Adam Reach

    The only reasons he won’t start regularly next season are injury or because we’ve sold him.
  12. Sam Hutchinson and Joost Van Aken

    Well that's something at least
  13. Good, bad or indifferent I'll be renewing. I just can't imagine not having one. May as well do it now while it's a bit cheaper.
  14. Given his versatility and age, I reckon we could get around £7.5m. He doesn't get enough goals to have driven the price up much more.
