  1. All these people getting their knickers in a twist over his wages; not his fault the club offered that much / met his demands. All these people saying "xxx cost / is paid less than Hooper"; it was a great piece of business at the time, a proven Championship striker in his prime. Not his fault injuries blighted his Wednesday career. Also, never understood why hindsight isn't used by more clubs when buying players... We were foolish to get him knowing how his future would be blighted... That said, right decision to say goodbye and wish him well... I'm having a quid on him to score against us if he stays in the Championship as he remains a proven Championship goalscorer, albeit with question marks over his hamstrings made of playdough. All the best Gary, thanks for the memories.
  2. One year extension, low(ish) base wages with heavy performance based incentives - decent clean sheet bonus, generous promotion bonus and a guaranteed extension on enhanced wages triggered by promotion. Or (if acceptable within the bounds of P&S), matching or even improved overall guaranteed remuneration with 20% drop in wages for the duration of the contract and a long term incentive payment upon completion, triggered by a generous minimum appearances clause (say 25-30 league games a season)... kicks the P&S problem down the road a bit whilst rewarding him for being a key member of the team for the duration of the contract rather than sitting it out Abdi style.
  3. Bought the free kick, then took it a few yards away from where it should have been, giving Vrancic the distance to get it up and down.
  4. They ought to take the mick out of us more often rather than sitting on their hands all game
  5. Celebrating their 0-0 win to borrow one of their phrases.
  6. Right decision not to give it, Hector was being straight-armed by Madine the whole time to prevent him getting back goal side... that being said I'm surprised it wasn't given as it looked a pen all the way.
  7. Exactly what they were saying, it was as comfortable as I've ever seen a game at 0-0 going into the 90th minute. Loved it when the announced it the winner, they had absolutely no doubt they weren't going to score.
  8. Enjoyed their commentary today, totally unbiased, brutally honest and zero expectations that their team would do anything. Made me feel slightly less nervous than I otherwise would have been.

  10. Not read the whole thread so might be repeating but it seems to be that the scenario laid out for Luhukay was that we didn't have owt to spend, we were getting rid of some of the lower asset-value high earners and that youth was the way to go. Yes, these quality players are still available to us but lets do without them, see whether we sink or swim. We sank, the Manager paid the price. Now Chansiri is changing tack, bringing in an expensive Manager and (presumably) backing him (somehow) within the confines of P&S. The experiment failed but luckily the experiment took place whilst we still had these quality, end of career or injury prone players to bring back into the fold. Imagine if we'd gone down the youth route with no back up, no ability to backtrack. It's simultaneously genius and an absolute car wreck of a way to run a club.
  11. Who'd have thought an algorithm based upon performances in the season to date would have us finishing pretty much where we currently sit in the 25 game form table (aka The Table).
  12. Chancers arent from any particular geographical background. You think all bad chairmen are non-UK? Have you looked down the road at Chesterfield? I agree with your first point in principle but argue that the greatest chairman in the world can also be the worst chairman in the world dependent upon circumstances and results on the field. Do you think the we'll all be fawning over a chairman who openly explains to us exactly how we're going backwards or do you think the fact we're going backwards would cloud judgements irrespective of how good or bad the chairman really was?
  13. To be fair, misguided or not, clueless or not, if I'd pumped millions into a football club half way around the world and who I had no prior affiliation to, if I gave that club two of it's best years of the last two decades, I probably wouldn't just meekly reverse out of there without a few polite words of explanation, mitigation and deflection of blame for all that's going wrong. The whole thing ISN'T Chansiris fault, you could argue other things are symptoms of the affliction Chansiri has given us but he's not to blame for the players on the field underperforming, he's not to blame for the injuries, maybe he's to blame for other things; I'm obviously not as in the know as others who state as fact things that really ought to only be conjecture. I don't think he's maliciously spent money on the club, so whether he was the right man or not, whether I think he should stay or not, I'm not going to slate him, if he leaves I only hope he sells to someone who is perfect, otherwise we'll be going through this whole charade again from a fanbase of a club who have spent just over ten years of the last 50 being anything even remotely relevant to the upper echelons of football but who think we should be channelling Citeh for the title.
  14. Already posted elsewhere but may as well stick it here too... I've crunched the numbers so you don't have to... Average height of our three big units = a shade over 6' 1" Average height of our five big units = a shade under 6' 1" Average height of Uniteds three CBs = a shade over 6' 2" Maybe he was thinking of our three behemoths in midfield, average height just over 5' 7"? ...A team with four youth players with an average of 15 championship appearances in their careers (most coming this season)... ...A team with three players discarded by other clubs... ...A team with two much maligned players who cost next to nothing... ...A team with a player who has made the grand total of zero games for his parent club in three years... ...A team with one player who signed for a middling amount of cash in todays market (the kind of money that buys a championship center back)...
