  1. There are local rivals, and competitive rivals. Local big derbies never change. - our league one days charlton were our rivals for competition - then Birmingham when we first came back up - now it’s forest, derby, Leeds, all the top half group. Leeds were competitive rivals with Man U for a couple of seasons 2 decades ago and dine out on it for life. That’s like us saying arsenal are our rivals after the double cup final year. Leeds have no local rivals, similar to reading or Brighton.
  2. One of our best sponsors was to have the children's hospital on the shirt. Think what the prem clubs could do for one with it across their shirt. Or even 1 weekend a season all clubs have a charity on their shirt, 1-off kits. So easy for them all to do, would be huge giving back.
  3. Fully agree and do a Spurs. Have to be serious and think a ground-share with United. It used to be our ground anyway, and aside from hating them, it would be naive not to try and get a share with them, great location, no real change for travelling fans etc and we already play alternate weekends. Can't see being any real fuss about it, it's a building after all! Come back to a beautiful upgrade, same name or something including the word Hillsborough (Hillsborough Park Stadium?). Enough good press and upgrades will slowly help the 89' issues fade away.
  4. To be honest this could be the final nail for me, the Prem & the FA have a chance to prove they support lower league teams. It's so obvious its been foul play by Newcastle & Bruce. And even more so that they think they can get away with it due to their status. Failure to act by either the FA & Prem and i've lost all interest in promotion. Much happier in the championship, no Top 6 elite nonsense or glory fans. Real football clubs, great twists and turns and less Sky TV drama.
  5. Surely he is unavailable until after the Cricket world cup has finished anyway
  6. Definitely the kit, Chansiri has show in the last few seasons he likes the fade up away kit. I can see what they were trying here with the retro graphic, I think it hasn't quite come off, but it's the unfinished product so tbc. Ambitious effort though, 6.5/10
  7. Tell you what, I really would love our badge if it was just this. Simple but nice detail. Probably more suited to away yellow shirt
  8. He's publicly said he didn't want the role before when it came up, and he was at Hull. So somehow don't see this being more than he's linked because he's a fan of them. Lazy journo creating stories
  9. We need to beat Villa well, their GD is an extra point, and with 3 of the bottom 4 to play. If they catch one of Wigan/Millwall/Rotherham on a bad day, goals galore. Goal difference could really be the decider I think and we have work to do.
  10. Doesn’t matter what team, god I love the championship drama compared to prem
  11. Every year in the championship, the last 5/6 weeks the bottom clubs become a different beast. You'll get all sorts of shock results and thumpings. Form will completely go out of the window for them. I reckon Middlesborough/Preston/Forest are teams ripe for beating by some of the lower clubs, as they are the games they write off and wins and worry about teams around them.
  12. Top half, prevent the blunts in both games denting promotion, Bruce in charge to start fresh with a few months of free shots. This is the best we can hope for this year, and tbh it's not a bad place to be coming into the new season.
  13. What annoys me was this wasn't sussed out. Second season there were some flashes but we became so fixed on not conceding. We had one bad game, which happened to be the playoff final against Hull, and Carlos panicked. Second year we could have walked it had we not changed style. For Huddersfield to win the playoffs without scoring a single goal in normal time is criminal from both Us and Reading. Any attacking team would have ripped them apart, and we had the ability. Unfortunately now the majority of players have past their peak to make that system work, so needs a new start.
  14. Any team who wears blue shouldn't have black as an away. Just doesn't work against so many teams, as nice as it looks.
  15. Is Hutchinson available for this?asking for a friend
