  1. From the reaction of Reach at the game and now Palmer & Luongo on Instagram he seems incredibly popular with the players.
  2. The fine was actually 20 million (Including legal fees). The other number was the write off of loans. They also have had 10 YEARS to pay off the fine so it's just 2 million a season. Remove a few expensive players from the books to cover it. I am sure we'd take that all day long. Legally Chansiri has found a loophole and sold the stadium. QPR actively announced their losses.
  3. I think at that point he hadn't found a solution. Chansiri had no conviction in the idea behind the ground sale. He waited for Reading/Derby to make the first move and then followed suit. Unfortunately as a result the land registry dates and the tax submission dates didn't match. I believe this is the main issue. Even though everyone knows the ground is sold to escape FFP sanctions if the dates match there's nothing really the EFL can do (it's a loophole within the system). Given Chansiri's lack of conviction they now have grounds (pun intended) to sanction us
  4. hahaha I thought Willy Wonker was Massimo Luongo
  5. Monk gone in two footed on Clotet.
  6. I completely agree with this and you're absolutely within your right to have an opinion. The Rhodes line has just got a little stale. We all get it and have seen numerous examples from you as to why it didn't work. I feel the same and the benefit of hindsight many others probably do too (Including the Chairman). But you're right you should be allowed to voice your concern in a constructive manner.
  7. Mate you're absolutely over the moon it didn't work with Rhodes :D Every single thread i log into you somehow manage to segue how much of a poor signing Rhodes was into the conversation. We all get it. He was a poor signing. The difference between Monk and Rhodes was that Rhodes was on a downwards trajectory whereas from numerous accounts by Brum fans Monk worked wonders with them and was unfairly dismissed by the clubs hierarchy. It's a decent appointment which if Monk was to be the manager should be been done far sooner and allowed him time in the transfer market as well as time to potentially bring in his own coaching staff and methods. But here we are so let's crack on and get behind him.
  8. I don't really get the issues? It's clearly a language barrier and limited English. I think also that's merely Chansiri's resting bit*h face :D Monk didn't actually say he wasn't bringing his own staff neither. It's clearly been a whirlwind appointment so he's probably taking stock before making a decision. I like Monk. He's a direct speaking, modern manager and i hope it works out for us. I honestly think this was a case of a last minute Press conference and a Chairman whose had a lot of poo to deal with recently.
  9. Couple of comments from a Brum friend of mine: Yeah I really rated him! Got us well organised and playing to our strengths which was much needed after the Zola/Redknapp/Cotterill fiascos. I felt we were on an upwards curve last year and if he had had the same amount if investment Pep Clotet has had, could have maintained a Play off challenge this year. Weve got some good results this year but more from luck than quality play IMO. He also brought back a sense of pride and passion to the club - hence rising attendances last year - and did some good work in the community. Still sad that we lost him. Theres been a lot of stuff in the press about his relationships with agents etc. but I can only judge him from performances and results on the pitch and I think you have got yourselves a good manager there! Better than Brucie anyway!
  10. That's just it though isin't it? He's just an 'ok' appointment. I do like the football he plays though and he did incredibly well at Brum.
  11. Brum fans I know thought he did an outstanding job. I am ok with this. Knows the league and hasn't done a terrible job anywhere he's been.
  12. Cowley would bring something a little different IMO. A winning mentality, a different philosophy and something fresh. Pulis wouldn't be my choice however he's always there or there abouts.
  13. It's almost as if Bullen cannot win in the eyes of some fans. Last season under Bruce we had some absolute shockers (Rotherham away) but grinded out a point. At the time that was down to having a good manager who knew how to take points when not at your best. Last night it's because Bullen is not right for the job. I'm not advocating we hire Bullen as manager but let's give him a fair crack before dismissing him based upon a sluggish 45 minutes.
