  1. Yep, that's a really good point. I believe United and Liverpool supporters already tried the walkout style protest and it did nothing. If these people give up their season tickets thousands of tourists will buy them up and those supporters might get put on a 20-year waiting list to get them back. The best tactic, like you mentioned, is to deliberately have games cancelled, week after week, point deduction after point deduction. Can't have the team bus drop the players off when there are 10,000 angry supporters blocking the entry, can't kick off if there are constant delays for security reasons
  2. The problem with the Glazers from the beginning was the fact they acquired Manchester Utd through a leverage buyout. They never fronted their own money to buy the club, the whole deal was one disgusting backdoor deal with private banks to parasitically steal billions from the club. At least in the case of City and Chelsea those owners at least paid and invested to build them up the way they are. The Glazer deal should have never been allowed to happen and the FA, UEFA, FIFA should have then, and if they haven't still, implement regulations to ban leveraged buyouts from ever happening again.
  3. I've been living under a rock, what's the deal with Hearts? I see their highlights posted on the SPFL youtube channel and they play their games at Tynecastle behind closed doors.
  4. All I remember from Simon Donnelly was that goal he scored against Derby (that we allowed 2 goals in stoppage time...) and that's it. O'Donnell I genuinely don't remember a thing about him other than he passed away playing for Motherwell a few years after he left us. I wonder how many millions that alone cost us
  5. De Bilde only cost about 3mil which even back then wasn't a crazy amount, he scored double figures in an awful team. The guy was just a complete nutcase but the 2 Scottish lads signed at the same time were a bigger waste of money.
  6. Longest serving player by a mile and an academy graduate to boot. Would love to see him stay as long as he plays any part in the team.
  7. I remember reading the day Pulis was sacked we were set in bringing in a former Barnsley manager? The name escapes me but the Barnsley supporters said you're f**ked if you take him.
  8. jUsT tWo MoRe WeEkS~~!!! FlAtTeN tHe CuRvE!!! The year 2021 is going to horrific in ways nobody here could have ever imagined. Will that be the last final wakeup call for the lemmings who still don't get it? I legitimately don't think so, a significant proportion of the public is beyond saving. It was a good run mate, can't get through to people though
  9. The lack of finances since 2017-18 had to do with FFP, so this year being 3 years of spending nothing sort of clears our ability to spend more next year. It's why Chansiri has been so frugal whilst frustrating the fans but if we can survive this year then next year he'll probably buy 6-8 more players. It's why he brought in Pulis for this season instead of rolling the dice on a young manager that would actually go for it. I don't think it will work this time though, I'm positive we'll be relegated under the current setup.
  10. The players are just playing the way they were told to play. No one in the squad can play to their potential playing anti-football. I wish the club went for Ryan Lowe and told him to just go for it and assure him job security for League One if it wasn't enough. We're going down regardless.
  11. Why do people think we don't have the players to play more attacking football? We never score because players like Reach and Bannan et al can't play to their strengths... and our defensive players are good enough to just sit back and defend for their lives for 85 minutes. If it didn't work under Monk, then why the f**k would it work under Pulis? It defies any logic. This team will never win another game for the rest of the season set up like this. Roll the dice FFS and get our quick players higher up the pitch and just go for it. Who cares if we lose 5-3 if we're just going to lose
  12. See what happens when Harris plays on the right not left? He can actually swing the ball in at full speed instead of stopping and trying to switch his right!
