    maybe but dean smith gets the best out of players and  he couldn't get mceachran firing ….. bruce is a good  manager at our level but he as to have the tools to do the job and signing players who's best days were 3 or 4  years in the past isn't usually a recipe for success .obviously if that's the only kind of player he /we can afford/allowed to sign then lets hope he can pull a few rabbits out the hat to make us competitive  but he'll certainly earn his million quid a year if he does..  


    Yet he kept picking him to play, so he must have been happy with the way he was playing.

    Not everyone can play.


    If you have a whole team of players who expect to play week in week out, that's where it goes boobies up.


    You need players who you can rely on and call upon when needed, who don't lose morale and confidence because they don't expect to play every game.


    Its not about expecting. But all players want to be playing. There’s a difference that you seem to be struggling with. 




  3. i would assume it is a case of we cannot register them yet. if that's the case as the season approaches, then i would think the players would request to be released from their contract in order to be able to continue their career elsewhere. should we say no, i reckon they would have a good chance of winning in court. 


    however, i can't see any of that happening. we must be in a better position that this time last season, just by the number of high earners we have released. we were allowed to sign onomah and hector on loan, so can't see why letting 6 go and bringing 3 in most likely on lower salaries would be an issue. it should show the efl we are getting our house in order.

    Tell you what’s pathetic, writing people off before they’ve even set foot through the door....crazy. Not every signing works think everybody acknowledges that but at least give the buggers the chance to fail.


    If this was a young lad then fair comment, but cattermole is an experienced pro, with many attributes that we need to steer clear of. It's not writing hm off, it's making an informed opinion based on what has been on display for a number of seasons. If he was really so good, then Sunderland, a team who will definitely be chasing promotion would have kept him, instead they paid a large chunk of his wages to let him go.

    My missus has faith in me but when I accidentally stick it in her arse she says I’ve done it wrong and doesn’t wait until the end of the season to do so


    'accidentally' lol 


  5. What a horrible little Cünt he is and his advisors. 


    Fück Leicester too. I hope they implode as a club. Truly disgusting that they have done this and they’re firmly cemented as a club I hate now. 


    I really wouldn’t mind DC being publicly vocal about all of this. We are punished by the EFL for not abiding by their ‘fair’ regulations yet other top flight clubs are pulling tricks like this, ripping away our investments, how is that fair?!

    I'm OK with the status quo.  


    Didn't think you would do anything, carry on whinging then. 


    There are loads of things you can do, get networking, get together with like minded fans reach out to possible buyers or investors. 


    Its not whingeing though is it? It’s having a discussion, engaging with opposing views and applying some critical thinking. Seemingly, something you’re finding quite difficult to engage with at the moment trying to reduce any points made to ‘what are you going to do about it’ is very basic and petulant. 


    I find it so odd on here, the mentality of some, that you must be positive about everything going on at the club and any attempt to discuss issues is just shot down and dismissed.

  7. Just the fact Bruce has brought Strudwick in tells me things are going to be very different.


    You don't work at Man Utd for 10 years in a senior role id you don't know what you're doing. The guy is very knowledgable with a tonne of experience too. Fitter with less injuries is what we should expect now. 


    On paper there's still a balance issue within the squad, still a few too many weaker players but nevertheless with the financial restrictions i really think we'll be a tough team to beat. I'm not happy wit how the upper echelons of the club have been operating, but the football side of things will come good in time now. I got a very good look in to what Huddersfield were doing the year they went up and a lot of what we are doing is of a similar ilk.

    Hence the supposed ground sale.

    I've read in a few places that the ground has been sold.


    Do you really think these players would train and turn up to public events without signing a contract? Stop flouncing.


    Where has it been mentioned that we have sold the ground, anywhere credible?

    Let me clear one thing in my mind. 

    Situation  (No specific player intended, nor any specific club)  - We have a player who's being paid £100,00 per week. We agree to let him go at the end of his contract. He becomes a free agent at the end of his contract. No-one shows any interest in him.What happens next? Does the player a) continue to belong to us, and we pay his wages, or b) does the player simply go on the dole and we cease to pay him.  

    Serious question.


    Clue is in there somewhere.

    I know he has said 3 or 4 more but I think there will be more IF he can move a few out.


    But lets say 4, with what he was saying yesterday it will have to be LB 2 Wingers and a CM. I know if we can get Hector back we will but If we cant I think Borner is the replacement.


    And if he could get who he wants I think it will be:


    LB - Lazaar Loan or Perm

    CM - Onomah perm deal

    Winger -  Aarons Perm deal

    Winger - Unknown but could imagine a youth from one of the big clubs.


    But like I say I think if he can get some out he will want more than another 4.


    He says he wants 4, but you think he wants more. 


    Seems legit.
