  1. Thanks for this - so looking it up was scored in around 15 minutes. (29,33 and 44). Is this our quickest also?
  2. Hoping one of the stat fans on here can help for no other reason than genuine interest. Who was the last player to score a first half hat-trick for SWFC? Who has the record of our quickest hat-trick and how quickly was it scored? Thanks in advance. Still over the moon with that display. I was looking at the match facts afterwards and it said we only had around 42% possession. Couldn't believe it - we dominated start to finish and was surprised at their lack of effort to chase the ball in second half.
  3. Chansiri wont sell as he will want to see a profit and wont give up after only a few years. What makes this whole thing mental is the clubs who have never benefited from parachute payment are being restricted to ensure profits are being made. Its just backwards and effectively halts the progress of a football club. If we want to sell the ground to our self why should EFL step in the way. As long as we are posting profit I cannot comprehend why they should be meddling in this. This sale only benefits the club in my opinion. Another huge issue is the fact you can only lose £39M over three years yet PL clubs are getting around £100M per year. The gulf in money is huge and crippling the competitive English game. It costs around £18M for a bang average player now so the losses allowed just do not make sense. More clubs have been in trouble since the ruling than before it. The meddling in our teams and everyone else in the leagues affairs needs to stop.
  4. I am 100% confident we have a squad capable of playoffs if we can keep them fit. Harris is fantastic should he keep this up but no doubt will get injured at some point like everyone else. I actually think we give the 'better' sides in this league too much respect and its a mindset change for fans and our squad that we need. Why would we be scared of Fulham? I don't think their miles better than us as some would make out. We have a great core of players that should be able to match any team in the league or at least be in the mix of the best 6 teams. Home atmosphere on the whole is negative and whilst its up to the players to get the fans off of the seats it is also the job for fans to support rather groan all the time. I moan myself so am guilty of it and its probably a product of, in the whole, terrible football for 20 years. Maybe this is the same at every club but when we look at pigs or l**ds the atmosphere for their team seems to be more positive which is irritating. Away we are fantastic and probably the best fans in the league.
  5. Well done SWFC as it looks like we are standing up for ourselves after already ridiculous new rules/ entrances/ restrictions etc.
  6. 100% surely they pay ground naming rights too so the sponsorship wouldnt reflect correctly.
  7. I can understand your point of view as betting is always 'shoved in your face' but I completely disagree. Free country and no one is forced to make bets, go into betting shops, download apps to bet etc. I rarely bet and have personally avoided betting apps on my phone as I know myself well and understand it would not be a good thing for me to have. I smoked for 10 years and if I have ill health when Im older I would not blame the cigarette companies. It is my own fault. No one these days accepts responsibility - and I'm a millennial.
  8. Good point - give him the job! Nothing to lose and nothing attractive on offer for us.
  9. Really want Bullen to get the job now. I didn't initially want him but the last two fixtures where we have taken the game to the opponents has impressed me. Football has not been this exciting in years for us and the new signings have improved our first 11. I get we have only played two but we are now playing with an intention to win the game well and entertain. There is no one else out there currently that I personally want if Hughton refused the job so give Bullen a chance as interim manager. The fear I have is if he is hired and fired we lose him forever unless we offer him a DoF role which is highly doubtful. If he is 'interim' he can take all the plaudits for a job well done this year if it goes well and if it goes badly we can hire someone and get him to step back and become coach again.
  10. I really hope this is not true at that price. Should be at least £8M.
  11. If we can get Murphy, Hector and possibly Gayle then that would be the best window under Chansiri so far with either Rhodes or Winnall leaving.
  12. Palmer on the left has been fantastic and like a new signing. I want him to stay there as I believe he will get better and better - we finally have found his position.
