  1. I doubt if our mate Iorfa would even get into the 60/61 side, certainly not as Centre Half!
  2. He was a colossus, in my opinion a far better centre half than Jack Charlton. In his day, truly world class. RIP Peter Swan.
  3. I was just adding to the injustice part of the complaint! FFP were breached yep- but those parachute payments never did allow any form of level playing field. I’m not surprised that owners “innovate” to try and address the imbalance. I think it holds everyone back apart from the relegated clubs : some of whom, as we know, have broken FFP for the sake of the riches of the Premier League.
  4. It’s only biased because you don’t agree with it! I thought he made some good points ( but then again I’m biased too)
  5. Yep, but the real t*rd in the water pipe is the stance on parachute payments. One law for the relegated and another for the rest. You can’t have a system with different rules for the top tier that still apply when you’re no longer in the top tier! It’s not bloody rocket science!
  6. There used to be an inlet on the Ground side of the arches- you wouldn’t call it a car park, more of a green lane access to something or another.

Flat caps as far as the eye could see ( not very far when y
  7. It used to fill you with an inner glow from what seemed like miles away! I could never walk fast enough!
  8. Every manager knows you have three avenues to manage. Your employer(s), your staff, and your customers. Anyone who thinks managers are employed to do what they’re told by ANY of the those three routes is delusional. An owner must accept that the manager is paid to have authority and is responsible for, implementing his ( her) decisions. The customers cannot and should not seek to manage (heresy I know) as at the end of the day they either buy the end product or not. Equally, the staff cannot dictate policy. It’s best if all three work in harmony of course. The issue at Sheffield Wednesday
  9. Have you been watching Star Wars (Revenge of Yoda) again D?
