  1. Yes, Windass back in our squad 100%. He was a rare bright spot in a dismal end of season run.
  2. Well, beg my pardon Sir. Spoilt is a ridiculous claim. I’ve been watching us since 1989 and I’ve known nothing but failure aside from a year or two of Francis (which i have fleeting memories of) and a year and a half of Carvahal. I’ve been to games in the Prem, Championship, League 1, Away FA cup games at Southport and Scunthorpe, you name it I’ve been there. All I want is a club that’s run properly by someone who knows what the hell they're doing, and funnily enough I’ve never seen that. Shame on me for petulantly wanting my club to be in good standing. My plan? Scorched earth. Go back to square one, be it Championship, League One, Conference, Boston North, whatever league it may be. Start this whole operation again and maybe we’ll have a club which isn’t a laughing stock. If Chansiri wants to be the man at the helm, fine by me, but i don’t trust him. I’ve stood by the players where most of the posters on here have ‘bleated’ as nauseum about how crap they are and how they aren’t fit to wear the shirt, etc. I have criticism of their performances, but they haven’t always been bad, in fact for most of the season they’ve been adequate enough to have us in and around the playoffs. What’s caused us to slide off? Up to you lot to work out, since you all seem to know best. I like to think I’m a reasonable man, but you can get bent for that comment Nev. you might have many more years on me as a Wednesdayite, but it doesn’t make you any more or less a Wednesdayite.
  3. I assure you, I’m not one of those. For or Against us, I want Chansiri out and to take Paxo with him. For all the early success with a team assembled for one big season (possibly two at most), his failure to make the correct decisions on personnel, wages, PR, and the EFL finance rules has put us back to where we were in 2010-2011. The bridge has been burned in my view.
  4. Fletcher is a huge loss for this close-season run in. Going to miss him for his play and his off field impact. Hutchinson is another that will be missed. The way he’s been treated in the last few months has been diabolical. Fox I could take or leave. He’s gotten better, but I’m excited to see Matt Penney take his place and put a mark down for himself. Winnall was always a much of a muchness. A strange signing from the off and never got in really. Good luck to him though. Forestieri....I’m in love with the memories and the Legend of Forestieri, but the hard reality is that he doesn’t care for us. Absolutely right to see him on his way. Doesnt matter what league we’re in, this day was coming and I’m glad it’s happening. Burn down the forest and grow it up again from the ashes.
  5. We aren’t getting Wickham in the cheap, or at least any cheaper than Fletcher. The only striker we’ll have under contract after the summer as things stand is Rhodes. Where are these other three strikers who we’ll still have? Penney looked good when he was playing at LB, the problems began when Jos wanted to play him higher up the field where he had less experience. He’s had a year with a side that we are no better than. I reckon this is his time to grab that place in the first team. I think we’re too quick to bin off Moses as well. What I’ve gleaned is that Bruce was his confidence man, and when he left it had a negative effect on Moses. Now, he should have been able to adapt to that, but by his own admission he didn’t react well and lost his focus and passion. He looks to have had his ‘come to Jesus’ moment. He’ll come back a better player. And let’s get down to brass tacks: beggars can’t be choosers, and we’re going to be beggars for the next 3 years. We need every able body we can get.

  7. Voted ‘Going’. The longer it’s gone on with no word on renewal, the more it looks like it’s not going to happen. Ditto in the Fox renewal as well, although unlike the CF situation we have players who can occupy LB comfortably.
  8. ‘.....relatively soon....’ ’.....rumours......’ A lot of weasel words on the surface. Also, perhaps a case could be made that other clubs demanding We, Derby, and Birmingham be found guilty and threatening legal action if otherwise is ‘poisoning the jury’. Individuals and organizations outside of a legal proceeding can’t (or at least shouldn’t) be able to influence an arbitration hearing that involves an independent panel. A shame to see such malicious skullduggery, but no shock. Doubly a shame since I don’t have any particular dislike of Barnsley, but that is changing quickly.
  9. That’s fair, although I looked at those signings as injections of pace along the flanks which could be worked into a three CB format at times. Without knowing what his other targets were, it’s speculative on my part.
  10. Beat FFP (as I think we rightly should considering what we’ve seen and heard) and there’s half a chance of this happening. lose FFP, and we’re playing away at Shrewsbury and Doncaster.
  11. This is probably what Bruce has in mind last summer when he was making his signings before he flipped off to N*wcastle. if he hadn’t done the dirty on us I reckon he would have brought in a few more players that would have been more suited to a WB reliant system of play. What could have been. Didn’t think it was possible to adore and hate a man in such equal measure as I do Bruce.
  12. 3/10. given the number of bodies we’re set to leave in two months time, he is at least a body that can be utilized..... As a doorstop. Or a draft excluder. Or an umbrella stand. Or an egg whisk. Or firewood. take your pick.
  13. He should never have gone. He had improved massively under Cabbage Head and looked like he was going to be a second pick behind Borner (in my view at least, nothing to back that up). He’s not done so well with Blackpool by all accounts, which is even sadder. I’d have him back, no problem.
  14. Not withstanding the 2-3 bad games he had (swept away in the garbage fire around him, so I can’t really blame him much) I reckon this is a good call along with the Penney deal. this is a sign of the time for us now. Young players in, mostly local or have been around the club for a few years. With Osaze, Penney, Hunt, and hopefully one or two of the more promising lads we can (as one persons already put it) have an energetic, full hearted, and fearless team. Although sadly it does make the loss of Thorniley and Stubbs more dispiriting. They could have been useful parts of that squad.
  15. I second that notion. If Fox were to go at the end of the season, I see no reason why he shouldn’t be the replacement.
