  1. Jimmy Hill's one of the main reasons footballs in the state it's in.
  2. Kin ell..........wish I'd seen the comment in rumours and not started this
  3. Just logged on so didn't see it. Mods send the post to cyber space.
  4. Apologies for another GH post. A Miller mate of mine just text me to say he's having a medical with view to a loan spell.
  5. Mate just sent me this from their forum................... New ground ..... how’s about £u&@ off Barnsley have held talks with other EFL clubs about a shock move away from Oakwell amid a furious row over the purchase of the ground - and could even play their home games in Lancashire. The 's owners have failed in an attempt to buy a half share of the stadium and Sportsmail understands that they have now engaged in discussions with other clubs about what would be a highly-controversial switch. A source close to Barnsley, who have played at Oakwell for 132 years, disclosed that a number of other sides have been spoken to about hosting the club's matches, including two in Lancashire. Barnsley have held talks with other EFL clubs about a controversial move away from Oakwell In what may well be a high-stakes move designed to ramp up pressure on the local council, which owns 50 per cent of the ground, Barnsley have taken action. While the club declined to comment, the source said that the blocking of a previous attempt to buy half of stadium from the authority left the majority owners - Chinese businessman Chien Lee and US colleague Paul Conway - 'discouraged and immediately seeking alternative arrangements'. They added that the investment would have improved 'dated infrastructure which is rapidly heading into a state of disrepair' and say the move has been made on the back of limited matchday revenue forecasts thanks to the Covid pandemic and continuing behind-closed-doors football.

Any such move would need permission from the EFL board. Fellow Championship club Coventry City, in dispute with landlords Wasps over the Ricoh Arena, are currently playing their matches at Birmingham City's St Andrew's. Barnsley are also in dispute with former owners the Cryne family, who own the other 50 per cent of Oakwell. They say the family will not part with their share, which was agreed in the initial deal and have rejected 'a variety of proposals'. The Crynes, who still own 20 per cent of the club, deny suggestions they refused to sell and told the Barnsley Chronicle that they are taking legal action for £2.75m they claim they are still owed from the sale of the club against Lee and Conway as 'a last resort'.
  6. Mates telling me it can't be resolved in Chinese favour as the 50% Cryne/Council stake is not for sale under any circumstances. Going to be interesting.
  7. Yeah, would have thought Rotherham or Donny would be favourites. Just spoke to a couple of Dingle mates (long term STs) who are telling me IF it happens they've done. All about the Chinese half not being able to buy the other 50% and have complete control. Sad times.
  8. See what your saying and IF he has that attitude (obviously we don't know yet) I don't want him anywhere near our club.
  9. Always loved him and got slated for it sometimes so great to see a thread like this, makes you realise occasionally players do actually care. OK he wasn't the most skillful but more than made up for it with passion, effort and availability. All the best for whatever the future holds for you Adthe, I for one will miss you.
  10. Yep really going to enjoy my beer with my Dingle mates tonight 🙊
  11. Lasting memory was him running down the touchline celebrating a goal against the Blunts and nearly going rs over t1t...
