  1. Wow. My favourite 80s kit in SWFC form ! That is a thing of beauty!
  2. Everytime I hear a pig speak about this team I’m lead to believe they’re the finest footballing side they’ve ever had. Every player, including the centre backs, attack from the opening minute, rampaging forward creating chances at will. Didn’t see much of that last night.
  3. All I’ve heard for the last few weeks is how they’ll rip us apart this time because we won’t park the bus like Jos. Quotes such as “Home or away we go for straight it from kick off”. They looked a million miles away from that. Wilder definitely thought Madine would grab the glory but Hector bossed him superbly. Bruce has done a fantastic job of getting the basics right with the defence and team shape in a short space of time - just need a bit more work in attack now. It’s definitely chalk and cheese though compared to the last 18 months.
  4. 100% agree. It sounds like he’s got money to spend but just can’t spend it. Why not invest it the infrastructure of the academy and ground. The West Stand should be a priority- it’s in a proper state, especially that roof.
  5. The long term plan for anyone investing in a football team has to start at the bottom. Should’ve been a continual investment in sorting the academy and it’s facilities. Alongside that make sure there’s a real connection between the club and the community and the fans. They’re surely the basics for anyone buying a club like ours. What you don’t do is immediately start making everything more expensive.
  6. It would be great to see these fantastic diehard away fans refunded at some point for one of these games where the players just don’t put a shift in. Other clubs have done it before. if Chansiri has a go at the fans at the forum someone really needs to pull him up on it. The numbers travelling away is simply incredible given the circumstances and the garbage being served up. Clubs like Derby who’ve got decent support and who are fighting for promotion aren’t taking the same numbers away.
  7. Danny Cowley at Lincoln. He’s embraced their club and got everyone singing from the same sheet. Totally turned the club around with his positivity. You’ve only got to hear him speak to know he’s got his head screwed on and is destined for bigger things. We’ll obviously appoint some no mark who has no clue about our identity and culture, but he’s the man I’d go for given our limited budget.
  8. What a set of interviews by him. Absolutely priceless. So many digs at us, and most of them complete garbage. My favourite is Reach’s right foot - fat little porker has obviously done his homework.
  9. Christ I never thought I’d find myself warming to Colin, but the more I hear from Chris “40k” Wilder the more I realise Colin did actually have a bit of humour about him. Wilder is just so, so bitter. And he’s like a bloody broken record bleating on about his attacking philosophy. He likes to play the underdog card against us, that’s why it’s hurt him that we came into both these last 2 matches at the Lane as underdogs ourselves and he’s not been able to break us down.
  10. I agree. With the state we’re in tonight there was plenty of potential for a proper bad score line. Yeah, we were all over the place attempting to go forward, but sod it, that horrible squared-headed porker Wilder has become the first manager who’s failed to crack our defence. Seeing his red face seething away in that interview afterwards made it all worthwhile.
  11. Decent post - pretty much sums up how I think it will pan out if we don’t go up, the decent players will be sold. A pragmatic manager like McCarthy would improve us. I’ve been rooting for Jos but we’re not one thing or another under him. We’re neither fast flowing attacking football or rock solid at the back. It was a completely left field appointment and it’s just not working. We’ll get a couple of wins to paper over the cracks and then they’ll put in some dire performances again. I’d like to see us on it at EVERY match.
  12. At last one of the national papers has taken this story up. It needs using as an example so the money clubs can’t get away with fleecing young talent from the lower leagues without them getting proper compensation, otherwise it makes a mockery of the whole Academy system for many clubs.
  13. What annoys the hell out of me is that the club is giving off this impression to the media that they’re tough as hell when it comes to negotiating this BBC Radio deal yet when it comes to transfer fees we get our pants pulled down time & again. This has been going on for years. Other clubs in this division, even small ones like Brentford, seem to get top dollar for their players. When was the last time we felt we actually made someone pay seriously over the odds for one of our players ? It all adds to the notion that we’re not well run, not organised, haven’t got a long term plan.
  14. We should make an official complaint now about it, so the FA are aware that we know exactly how this is going to pan out and that Leicester are conning the Academy system. If this had happened to another club I’m sure the national press would’ve picked up on it a bit more.
  15. Yeah you’re probably right mate but like you say the loophole needs closing. Hopefully in a couple of years they’ll be down with the dead men and on their way back to the championship where they belong.
