  1. Players cheat on the pitch and clubs cheat off it. Football has completely lost its soul.
  2. Hopefully one day there will be a time where a footballer can just get on with his life without anyone even mentioning their sexuality, they will be in a relationship without being front page news because the person they want to be with is of the same sex. Sadly in the current times a footballer coming out as gay would be hounded constantly by the press looking to get pictures of the couple and their lives would never be the same again. Every tabloid story about the player would mention the player is gay and sadly the many neandathols who still exist in this world would
  3. Does that really say we spent nearly 13 million on transfers.... last season? Guessing this is including fees we are paying over a period of time for Rhodes and Reach and maybe others? My memory isnt great but didnt we only sign Hector and Onamah on loan then Iorfa in the jan window?
  4. Best bit of today was when Bannan got retribution on Travis in 2nd half and floored him and whilst he was laying on the floor pretending to be injured again Bannan walked back over looking like he was going to apologise to him but just stood over and said something to him. Love to know what he said he looked angrymad.
  5. Their players reaction got him sent off. He certainly didnt stamp their player went into him with his own studs up. He was fine but acted like his leg had been snapped. Same with their number 8 who pretended he was elbowed after about 5 mins. I watched him after the ref left his side and he never once rubbed his face like he had been doing. Bored of players (including ours) feigning injury. That said there is absolutely no excuse for what is the worst performance I have seen by a Wednesday side for quite a few years.
  6. I know they do as I stated before which is EXACTLY my point! Well done on completely and utterly missing the point of the thread which had absolutely nothing to do with results of any football game that ever happened
  7. That's a fair point it takes 10 minutes for us to take every throw in.
  8. Your original point doesnt stand at all......unless you can read my mind. If we had come back and scored 2 in 96th and 97th minute I would still have observed it and may well have posted it because the point has absolutely no bearing on the result. In fact when I was typing the original post I purposely added a point about it not effecting the result because I knew someone would immediately respond exactly as you did.
  9. That's ok then no need for us to question it or even discuss it then. Just let players continue to time waste and roll around on the floor like their leg has snapped in two. For me its ruining watching the game and has got considerably worse and blatant over the last few years. We do it, every team we play does it but I dont like watching it.
  10. As I mentioned in my post this observation has absolutely nothing to do with today's result I'm talking about games in general. We deserved nothing from today's performance its was terrible. We could still be playing now and we wouldn't have scored yet.
  11. When are referees going to clamp down on constant timewasting and not just Cardiff today, we do it as does every other team. Little things like today we were caught offside their keeper puts the ball down whilst the ref is running to the middle of the pitch and not looking and puts it way further forward than it should be, clearly on purpose, so the ref will tell him to move it back so he can take another 25 minutes to re spot the ball and do his Johnny Wilkinson impression taking sidesteps before his kick. Teams are wasting time more and more and the referee rarely mak
  12. I'd be frustrated if that penalty was given against us but it was more of one than the one given against us vs Derby. We've had loads of dodgy decisions against us the last few seasons so I'm not going to complain about one going our way. Add to that Luongo being booked when he was 3 yards away from their player and pulled out of the tackle and their lad stumbled over 3 steps later then their number 9 not being booked twice for way way worse challenges (particularly the one on Lees) then I would say Bristol were lucky with quite a few calls today and they hardly tried
  13. I think part of the problem is they have done half a job. They are allowing teams with parachute payments to use that money to fund signings and be part of their P&S rules. That money should just be for what it is originally intended for....to ensure teams dont end up with massive contracts they cant pay.....ironically like we suffered with and have never recovered from. Until they make players contracts more sustainable this will never end. The only way it would work for me is to have a wage cap in each league and contracts must have clauses for all clubs which makes them affo
  14. Brian Roy and Stan Colleymore ripped us to peices when Forest smashed us 7-1 at Hillsborough.
  15. The whole punishment system really isn't what it says on the tin is it. P&S rules were made to supposedly protect clubs from spending more than they could afford and put themselves in danger of administration (which was happening on a regular basis). So if a club does break these rules then they are punished.....with a massive fine or points deduction which leads to massive loss of earnings. You literally couldn't make it up could you, teams who are in financial trouble (even if they arent because the owner has money) are punished by putting them in more financial
  16. Completely get what your saying and you are of course right. However as a club we have really had it rough, relegated from the prem before you got loads of money for doing so, then the collapse of the ITV digital deal leaving us saddled with contracts we couldn't afford, didnt go into admin like so many others and tried to pay our way which left us rotting in league 1 twice, we finally get an owner willing to spend like so many other clubs have done but the rules have been changed and we are not allowed to spend like other teams who got a rich owner. You can see why our fans are fe
  17. Absolutely right. You have however ommited a 3rd and important point. The premier league, which is where all this lunacy started. When teams are getting so much money in the premier league and then massive parachute payments then restricting the total allowed losses teams already in the EFL can make, particularly long termers like ourselves, Leeds, Forest etc, have completely had it as we would never be able to compete and eventually it would be a completely closed shop with a portion of teams already receiving parachute payments and any in the future just hoovering up
  18. Bruce is no fool....just a manager with a long history of jumping ship. He has done it countless times. I see it that he is coming to the end of his managerial career and saw one last shot at being Newcastle manager and one last guaranteed shot at being in the premier league. And Newcastle are a much bigger club than us nowadays.
  19. That play off final defeat could be our most expensive defeat ever. To be honest this whole sorry saga just highlights the ridiculous rules and regulations in football and how much money is ruining the sport. The fact that the Premier League and leagues below are two separate entities where teams who get up to the top division cant face punishment whilst there after breaking rules to get promotion just encourages teams in the championship to massively overspend. The fact teams getting relegated from the prem get obscene amounts of money in parachute payments
  20. To be fair today we created enough today to score 6. Fletcher header straight at the keeper, Fletcher hit post, Murphy beginning of 2nd half should have scored, Murphy also hit post and then we scored two. It's our lack of finishing teams off which is killing us. A team which is going up would have finished off Cardiff, Blackburn and Swansea. We panic if we are one goal up.
