  1. To add a bit of clarity, I called in this afternoon, the shop was very busy & I didn’t notice any sort of negative atmosphere whatsoever. First time I’ve seen the new training gear in the flesh & very impressed with it.
  2. Bought if for my lad yesterday, very impressed with it.
  3. Absolutely disgraceful. Crowds will drop this season as a result, the people in charge keep making the same mistakes year in, year out. Words fail me.
  4. Hillsborough Club. Cheap as chips and a decent pint of Coors. Bit of a nightmare getting served when its busy but such is life.
  5. Be a tough game as they're hard to break down, would take a 1-0 everyday of the week.
  6. I voted for Fletcher personally but Kieran Lee has also been outstanding.
  7. He's not playing terribly, and I don't he can seriously be accused of a lack of effort...but there's definitely something missing compared to how he was last season. I was watching highlights of the home leg of the Play Offs earlier, he looked so much more enthusiastic and happier in himself a few months ago. As other people have said, I applaud the stance the club took with him wholeheartedly, but I won't be surprised if he's not here this time in a year. At least if he does leave then it will on our terms and not his.
  8. Think what the last 2 away games have shown is that it's sometime soon a case of "horses for courses," and you can't always play that expansive style of football that Carlos like. It may even be the case that we have to pick a different line up for away games to make us a bit more solid.
  9. I honestly believe some people watch the match with their eyes shut. Either that or they think they're clever posting absolute tripe to get a reaction. Either way it's incredibly boring.
  10. Yep, that's a fair point. Of that 27,000, we have 20k ST holders and I would imagine a fair few thousand members, taking advantage of discounted prices. Away fans at Hillsborough don't have that option. £36 to watch Championship football is too much IMO, regardless of whether it's us, Leeds or whoever that is charging it. But, as I say, it's an argument that has been done death so I'll leave it there.
  11. How many of us would pay £36 to go there? It's an argument that has been done to death, but our prices are way too high.
  12. More chance of plaiting fog. As far removed from a Carlos type of player as you could ever wish to see.
  13. Truth be told, when I was 18/19 I'd probably have been in the middle of it. As you get a bit older and start having a bit of consideration for other people, you realise what an absolute knobhead you must have looked like at the time.
  14. Saw him having his photo taken with loads of kids after the Bristol City match. They were absolutely awestruck with this bloke who has barely kicked a ball for us. Modern football eh?
  15. Used to ruin my weekend. As I've got older and realised there are more important things in life, I'm usually over it within a few hours. But last night really wound me up as I felt we chucked the game away needlessly. Taking t'dogs for a walk in the sunshine this morning to cheer myself up.
  16. Bit ironic him asking the players to be consistent given the way he chops and changes the team from one match to the next.
  17. They won't be so brave when the banning orders are being dished out.
  18. With all due respect he's twice the player Nuhiu is. But he's probably on at least twice the wages that Nuhiu is, so you get what you pay for.
  19. I like Carlos, I really do. I think he's been a breath of fresh air after the poo we had to endure for the previous 15 years. Can't help but feel he's dropped a ball with some of his recruitment since Wembley though. We were crying out for a quality centre half, yet ended up with Sasso. I would also have liked us to have signed a midfield "enforcer," yet we've signed Abdi and Jones, neither of whom seem to solve the problem of us being lightweight in midfield, particularly away from home. In fairness I think Fletcher and Reach are very good signings, and an upgrade on what we already had. The thing that's costing us at the moment is individual errors, if Westwood stays on his line you'd expect us to win the game, we've probably given away as many soft goals in the opening 8 games as we did in the entire season last time. Long way to go in the season, and Carlos has earnt the right to be given the time to turn things around, but he's been backed extremely well by his Chairman, and he needs to find some solutions very quickly.
  20. Every goal we've conceded this season has been totally avoidable. Players making basic errors every single week.
  21. Give over. Was 1 game away from the Prem 4 months ago, ridiculous to even suggest he should be under any sort of pressure.
