  1. Katiren Meire

    £11 million for a kid striker who scored 10 goals in 45 games in the third tier of English football. We currently have a striker the same age as when you sold him with a far superior goal scoring record at relevant international age groups , sat wasting his career away and likely to leave for a pittance. Unless you are privy to the conversations between her and those she reported to then sadly it’s their opinions which counted as doing a good job or not. Again it is a flawed assumption that anything she did at Charlton has the slightest relevance to her role here at Hillsborough.
  2. Katiren Meire

    The assumption she did a bad job at Charlton is flawed , she had a brief from the owners which she followed and obviously did well. Its not her fault that the owners wish’s pissed off the supporters and as far as I can see she has made a decent start here following OUR owners brief. No doubt she will upset some of our fan base at some point but sadly you can’t keep everybody happy.
  3. Young George

    I’ve worked in Investment banking for twenty years , earn a very decent salary and I can guarantee his offer will be far in excess of mine. For a 19 year old with no real experience in his field it will be a very good offer. When I first started working an England International I knew earned 8 times my weekly wage approx at £4K per week , that differential is now approx 50-100 times my weekly wage depending on the player. Wages in football are total madness and when clubs get in financial distress the players and other clubs get paid out but it’s the little businesses who end up out of pocket.
  4. The Rovers Return

    Can’t blame Big Ron at all , he was obviously caught in two minds hence the u turn. Dissapointing for us but in the same circumstances everyone on this site would have done the same If it was Wednesday offering us the job.
  5. Totally gutted.

    I’m sorry it’s all my fault , I took both my kids last night. Both are good luck charms the only defeat they have ever seen live was at Wembley.
  6. Can’t see a win tonight , best we can hope for is a draw. Hopefully I’m wrong and we score a 91st min winner off Keoghs backside
  7. George Hirst - sorry

    Fair wage , he’s turned down a contract offer which is the highest ever for his age group offered by the club and higher than 95% of posters on here. Fair wages and football do not go togeather.
  8. Please Dont judge me by your own circumstances , if you paid 6k for two weeks holiday in Florida that’s fine however I pay less than half that due to the fact we have a family home there and have done since the 80s hence no accommodation costs , no car hire either and we don’t need to eat out we go to the supermarket and buy in. I made a comment based on my own personal circumstances not a generalisation , I know how much I’ve spent going to matches over the season and I know how much a holiday will cost ME. Over the last three seasons my wife has allowed my to take my sons to games on a regular basis and we have been season tickets holders for two seasons because I bought into the chairman’s vision. The level of performance and commitment I have seen this season is making me wonder the sacrifices we are making as a family are worth it.
  9. My fuel cost to goto the games is over £1300 a year alone never mind season tickets , food and drink and the amount of money spent in the club shop. You assume the only cost involved is a season ticket.
  10. I will be renewing two out of four tickets , my wife and youngest have only been to three matches this season so no point really. However another season like this then I will stop going. with the amount of money I spend during the season I can take my kids to Florida every year and given this seasons effort and performances it’s better value .
  11. Had to laugh or I will cry
  12. Kieran lee

    Should not have returned unless he was fully fit. No good blaming Carlos for all his faults and mistakes , Kieran is a grown man and could quite easily have said he’s not fit enough to play.
  13. Goalkeepers

    Having watched Hodge and Woods countless times in s Wednesday shirt , I struggle to understand how Woods kept Hodge out of the England squad, Springett Hodge Westwood both Dawson and Wildsmith have the potential to get on the list though
  14. Wildsmith or Westwood

    Wildsmith on current form however if he keeps it up and we start picking up points I’m worried that come the summer we have clubs knocking on the door for him , especially if rumours re FFP are correct.
