  1. Exactly this. Bruce has been known to spend money and would have not taken a job with zero budget and FFP restrictions as it would make him look like a poor manager at a failing club. It was obvious we would have zero FFP restrictions the moment we signed Bruce and not another nobody.
  2. We have had such a chalk and cheese 50/50 season. 1st half of season: Reach 2nd half of season: Fletch Most improved over the season: Liam Palmer - wanted him gone and now think he's a decent player Player over whole season consistently: Hector
  3. Amazing end to season. Was so unlucky not to beat Villa. If we did we would be sat in playoffs now!! Strange game football. I keep thinking if only the penalty was scored - this is not me blaming Fletcher as he has been on fire - but still I look back and think of the opportunities - the small tiny things like the penalty that could have completely changed the table! I don't think Villa would have got back in game at 2-1 to us- just my opinion. Im confident for the rest of season and just enjoying the fact we do not have a boring mid-table end and we have something, although a small hope, to play for with 5 games left!
  4. I think he has been badly advised. I also think he has a plan to navigate around FFP and it is not club 1867. Bruce was brought here for a reason and has spent money at other clubs. I highly doubt Bruce would have come here knowing we would have an embargo in Summer as it can ruin a career. Remember people on here saying in January we would have a firesale and all players would be gone - DC didnt let this happen. If FFP was honestly looming we would have sold players even in a firesale. For some unknown reason DC or SB do not seem too concerned so i think something will change--- maybe the allowable loss limit. I like DC - he is not a football person whatsoever - but I think he has good intentions to make a profit from us in the premier league - it just hasn't worked out with bad advice. IF we went up the first season this thread wouldn't even be here.
  5. People saying in December on here we would have a firesale etc and players will go on cheap leading to relegation etc. We have kept best players, got Bruce in and made some decent signings. End of year may change as contracts lower etc. but I think it proves again we will not let our best players go for peanuts.
  6. It was making a huge deal out of the situation and Gullit trying to make Alex Scott look stupid by saying 'It wouldn't happen at Man Utd etc'. Felt for her as she had clearly done her research into what has happened. She also explained this to Gullit and Murphy who ignored her on live television. No SWFC fan, that I'm aware of has made a big deal out of this once they knew the reasons. They made out like we were up in arms about it. All it takes and it is their job to do some research as pundits, was search the swfc hastag and they would find out we are not angry about it. It was arrogance and laziness at its highest. Gullit referencing it wouldn't happen at Man Utd - is also rubbish - - they hire interim/ caretaker managers until they get the man they want - same as Chelsea. So similar things do happen at highest level. There are things a lot more important than football and it actually makes me like Bruce more for standing up for his values.
  7. I agree with this 100%. At the start of his last speech he was saying he wanted to hand it down to family. Then seemed to get annoyed with himself so announced this. I don't believe this was going to happen or he wanted it to happen -- I think he talked himself into saying it. Otherwise this would have been first announcement. The exact same thing happened with memberships at the forum at beginning of season. He talked himself into reducing the price after fans had voiced there complaints.
  8. Well not necessarily fair or unfair. FF just had season of his career so could command a better contract as he was our best player. Abdi had barely made an appearance so deserved to be publicly shamed in my opinion.
  9. Completely understand that. Still want him out regardless and someone with knowledge of how to run club in. Shame there wont be many queuing up. However, if the play off final attendance, coverage and atmosphere is anything to go by an owner can make money with us if correct decisions are made. The club has the possibility to be huge should we have an owner that can inspire a fan base not criticize them. We are a huge city and probably have underestimated our potential as to how 'MASSIVE' we can be. With the right leadership we have the potential to easily bring in 30k+ gates regularly in the championship - not just the one off matches. However, the constant bad decisions currently are now not mistakes anymore. They now highlight the inability to run a club.
  10. This was me - - I couldn't for the life of me think why DC would organise a forum to be slaughtered unless he has good news. Seems he is not as savvy as some would think.
  11. No we all knew this but what doesnt help is DC saying in last forum he thinks we have a squad capable to try and sell more tickets etc. Its a lie and deceitful to fans who may not have the money but have overstretched to be apart of something. If he is not blaming players, himself or Jos we are in for a long night. DC OUT!!! JOS OUT!!!!
  12. Highlights how naive DC actually is. Its so bad and seems only going to get worse. Comments like that are going to create a hard and long forum for himself. Hope he leaves with Jos. Fans have paid top money to watch this garbage. A new manager, with the right appointment, can turn this around as our team has a lot more ability than our teams of the past who have produced better results than current crop. I have not seen a team under perform like this in years.
  13. What else do we post on then if not opinions its just what message boards are there for.
  14. Not making up stories... clearly expressed this is what I thought and not truth -- read the post. 'you would assume' 'I don't believe' 'my present viewpoint' Its my opinion - - you know -- the things people discuss on message boards. Not once did I say Chansiri said etc etc.
  15. Teachers struggle to control 30 students -- what makes you think 1 person can control 1000 angry fans when answers to questions go downhill... ill advised or good news announcement - hardly overthinking.
