  1. We also battled with Man U for Poborsky! How times have changed
  2. Aren't the rules different for u23 players and players on full season loans?
  3. The difference being is that those are independent bodies and don't have a vested interest like the board of the EFL.
  4. Let's hope it's the start of some needed positive news out of the club
  5. Not like you to try and belittle people who don't offer anything other than an anti Chansiri suggestion! Who was it who said, on numerous occasions, that an insult against DC is not an insult against the Ccub? Therefore aren't the club and DC separate entities? So simple question is the money owed to the players by the Club and not by DC personally? Even if he wanted to/ is capable of paying them personally is he allowed to under the rules set out by EFL?
  6. Not sure if it's been covered already, but don't the financial rules (ffp or whatever it bow is) say that owners can't just pump monies into an club? Isn't there an annual limit to the amount that can be gifted, a percentage of turnover etc? Is it the Club rather than DC who owe the players but lack the funds due to turnover have caused issues? Wasn't the reason for selling the ground; by the Club, to one of his shell companies an attempt to get around the rules? Yes I know that was a huge mess up! Not trying to defend DC just asking the questions. Like everyone on here, I hope, I want the Club to succeed and rise again with DC or a new owner.
  7. Figo as the new manager maybe!!! Depay providing the ammunition for Lukaku
  8. Sometimes I'm amazed at how many people on here know the workings of the club and how many presume they would be able to do so much better! Seriously, do people honestly think everyone is sitting on their hands waiting for things to happen?
  9. It's a tough job but someone has to try to keep looking over their half full glass with rose coloured glasses...
  10. Somaro or asino doesn't have the same connotations in Italian. It's used to call someone stupid...an ass...
  11. Or is it a case of, the manager gives a list of people he is interested in or positions to reinforce to the chairman/ board etc and they do the negotiating. I suspect managers don't deal with the minutiae of the deals, so perfectly plausible that he wouldn't know much more than a deal is near or a no go.
  12. Manager and Hector to be announced shorty...fingers crossed.
  13. I don't know if it's been mentioned (and I can't be bothered to read back through all the thread ). Three new companies were incorporated on Friday the 21st, Sheffield2limited, Sheffield3limited and Sheffield4limited...DC listed as director and the ground as the address for all three. No sure of any significance but I'm guessing it has to be linked to the addition shares some how...
  14. Sadly I've been there as well. Well done to the club in this situation!
  15. I went to that as well...I think Grobbelaar was in goal for them.
  16. Do we have a manager? Thought he was head coach....maybe a manager comes in above him?
  17. Isnt the railway the tracks? So the station is surely a place for the train to stop (become stationary?). So got to be a train station ;)
  18. Franco Baresi was only 5'9"...he was an ok central defender (said with tongue firmly in cheek!)
  19. Well said Sally! Totally agree with your sentiments.
  20. You took the words out of my mouth! Too many seem to be looking for negatives in every little thing the club does at the moment. DC seems to be trying to put things in place to move forward...how many have on here have said we need a CEO or similar? We now have one with experience, time will tell if this will be a good appointment or not. As the OP says give her a chance before sharpening the pitchforks! Things can and will improve, this is not the end....the sky is not falling down! The negativity has to change, the atmosphere at the match on Monday was toxic, even before a ball was kicked. The hatred towards some of the players is sickening. A fan screaming that someone should break Wallace's leg in training is beyond belief!
