  1. I assume if we vote for a new stadium are we going to sell our current stadium without any planning permission for building the new one?
  2. OK, so what are the odds of Leicester signing him in the January transfer window, us drawing Leicester in the FA Cup and then George getting a hat-trick against us?
  3. When he signed for Spurs, the first thing I did was put their penalty taker into my fantasy football team :-) I remember him being a great player.
  4. Sadly, I don't think so. Looking at the other teams run ins, I think Burnley and Hull will take the top two, even if we win every game. Might get 3rd or 4th, if we won every game (which we probably won't)

  6. Or is it two days before the day after tomorrow.
  7. He is easily one of our best managers of recent history. with us now being rich can we find a way to keep him, otherwise he will be snapped up by another championship club and is guaranteed to get six points from us.
  8. I would be happy with "Only stay up for a couple of seasons, win the league cup or FA cup, play in Europa league then go back down? " Either option is guaranteed to have people bitching about our Manager. He will be a hero for taking us up, then when we lose to Chelsea it will be all his fault and people will be calling for his neck. At least with a cup win he will be in charge for a little longer...
  9. Always Wednesday, but quite happy to support England as well. I like to see my team score goals, which they seem to be able to do at the moment...
  10. As someone who doesn't live in Sheffield I quite like the international matches. It is a chance to support a team with top players (in theory), in a pub where everyone supports the same team. And we beat a team away from home who lost to a 118th minute goal against the World Cup Finalists, so yes, this was an excellent result.
  11. That is my thoughts as well. We have tried chopping and changing managers for the past 18 years, why not try the same manager for that amount of time. I couldn't really care less if it is Jones or someone else, just stop changing managers every time we go on a bad run. Have we always had poor managers who have deserved to be fired? If so, why do we keep having poor managers? Do we have a problem scouting managers? Perhaps we should fix this first. We have tried the changing managers every 5 minutes, and it hasn't worked. Perhaps its time to try something different?
  12. I fear more of the same, hovering around bottom of the championship / top of league 1 Probably be another 5 or 6 managers down the line, with non of them getting established, and we will still be paying off our old managers (not a DJ comment, just a based on what has happened)
  13. I dont know why we struggle with getting a new manager when clearly there are so many expert managers on here.
  14. All I am saying, is if we sack Jones, then fast forward 12 months or so and we will be in the exact same situation. We have been doing this for so long now, and it doesn't work. Short term, yes it will probably help, long term, it will probably makes things worse. But I will tell you what if it makes you happy, sack Jones, replace him, but please please please, whoever you replace him with get 100% behind him, through good times and bad (and there will probably be more bad than good), and stick with him for 5 years +. As things currently stand, why would a good manager want to come
  15. What's the point in sacking him? Whoever replaces him will go on a bad run at some point, probably within the next 12 month's, then everyone will be calling for him to be sacked as well. Its the same vicious circle that's been going on for the past 15/20 years!
  16. ffs, how many managers do we need to sack before people will realise that it doesn't help. Give it a rest. All this negative crap is probably costing us points as well.
  17. I thought we tried chopping and changing managers over the past 15/20 years? How did that work out. Or, how about looking at the top sides in the premiership who changed their manager compared to those who kept their manager. I am not saying Jones should stay or go, I just wish we could make a decision and stick with it.
  18. You sure about that.... I imagine most of it is claimed back.
  19. play offs would be amazing, but have you seen our fixture list for March? We will be doing well to get any more than 6 points from those 5 games. If we get through that month with a massive haul of points then I will start to believe...
  20. This is quite shameful, charging one group of fans 125% extra is out of order. Maybe if anyone has any contacts at sky they could probably ask Middlesborough on your behalf, and I think it would make quite a reasonable story, Also, it will give them something to talk about during the game.
  21. Andy Sinton as well, purely based on the chase for his signature.
  22. That would work quite well, but to encourage goals, I think take the Goalies off first
  23. Now that the promotion euphoria has died down a little, in a strange sort of way I am slightly disapointed. I was really looking forward to a trip to wembley. I guess I will just have to postpone it until next year - save the money for that!
