  1. Got my refund this week, finally. It’s an absolute ******** take of loyal season ticket holders that this has taken so long, and still no one has a clue when it will be completed. The total lack of comms beyond a couple of vague club statements is what really grates thought. Just shows a total lack of respect for people who are the lifeblood of the club. Shut up and go away, you’ll get your money back one day… it’s only a few quid and we’ve been hard hit by the pandemic, new ticket system bla bla bla. Meanwhile the club is paying hundreds of grand a week in wages. There’s no way refunds should have taken this long, and no reason the club couldn’t have been communicating openly to those affected. Email is quick and cheap… there’s just been a total lack of will to do it. Chansiri likes to talk about family and being in it together, but actions speak louder than words. Very poor.
  2. Not heard a peep. As ‘valued’ season ticket holders you’d think a bit of communication beyond rambling official statements would be in order. Very poor.
  3. Atdhe and Pelupessy jogged past me today, in Whiteley Woods. Was holding my little un, and said hey my girl loves big Atdhe! He blew a kiss to her and said I love you too Anyway he didn’t look injured to me!
  4. I've got a cheeky fiver on City to win by 4+ goals at 11/4 Money in the bank
  5. Apologies I was just feeling a bit mischievous there X
  6. So far the latest Curb is excellent. Drifted a bit in the later series but always worth a watch. Hope they can keep this up, everyone is on top form so far Series 3 is my favourite, leading up to the big restaurant opening.... that final episode is the funniest thing I've ever seen. F*ck you, you carwash c*nt!
  7. The Smiths have more than a few candidates, but Asleep is about as beautiful and desperately sad as you can get
  8. Call me a miserable old fart but I really miss the days when it was based in the city, had random decent bands on in every pub and venue you could think of, and was FREE. Amazing atmosphere in town, local music scene got loads of exposure, people came from far and wide and experienced the heart of our great city. Felt like it stood for something bigger than yet another festival, and was something truly unique to Sheffield. At the risk of sounding flippant, now it's £90 to see Madness in a park half way to Barnsley
  9. This is clearly a terrible deal for the club in the long term, unless we go up in the next few seasons in which case it’s a drop in the ocean. I can’t believe that whatever this scheme earns in the short term will be the difference between complying with EFL rules or not. Another huge gamble then rather than simply selling a player or two for a few million. Everyone is replaceable. There are always loads of great players available for free (Fletch, Bannan, Westy, Hutch, Börner, Harris anyone? Others like Iorfa and Lees not free but cheap as chips) So assuming we stay in business it’s great for wealthy fans. But these are fans who would have no problem shelling out year after year anyway. Richer fans pay less while your average fan pays way more over that time. Not it sure any of this is in the club’s best interest. Meanwhile I’m seriously considering taking out a 5 year loan to do this, just about affordable but I really don’t like it. It all feels wrong. It’s short term desperation yet again. BUT it would save me £1000s over the long term - as long as we don’t go bust.... And I’m far from convinced the club won’t blow up in the next few years. No one can guarantee this scheme will be honoured if that happens. But you pays your money you takes your choice... and anyone who goes for it is taking a risk and that is on them. 10, 15 years is a long long time. It’s weird. I kind of resent being given this opportunity, given the risk and that there are so many other obvious ways the club could be better run. Christ it’s nothing that we can’t all see. Tickets should be sensibly priced - get em packed in and offer great catering & merch people actually want to buy. More bodies in the ground = more attractive to sponsors and more match day revenue. Better atmosphere too. Great for everyone. Then sell players for big money when we can and invest wisely using great scouting and data to identify under-appreciated talent. Why is that so hard for DC to comprehend? He’s searching for a magical solution that does not exist.
  10. Me and the lad I sit with both thought Lee was poor overall on Saturday, despite a couple of moments. Just saying!
  11. Rhodes looks like a lost puppy. Feel bad for him, but mainly feel bad for our bank balance
  12. I thought he was one of our 2-3 better players on the night, didn't look out of place against top level players. I would 100% give him a league start sooner than later
