  1. Going off the fixtures left to play Bristol could easily be way out of it this time next month. Looking at it I’d go Forest as favourites then maybe Preston, Us and Villa. Boro have to play most of the chasing pack too so we could be talking about 2 play off spots being up for grabs come late April.
  2. I’ve never really got the Training Ground theory. From what I’ve seen the majority of injuries are happening during games. I’d say it’s more to do with how we prep for games or recover after them, rather than hard pitches at Middlewood Road.
  3. Easily got to be the worst counter attacking side in the league. It’s not even solely down to a lack of pace either, our decision making in those moments is atrocious. See the break we had 2nd half today. Iirc Winnall had the choice of Aarons and Hutch in acres against one Derby defender down the left. Or Nuhiu down the right against two with no space infront of him and about 10 yard from the touchline. He played in Nuhiu, who then got ushered to the byline, and the attacked is killed stone dead.
  4. Think we’d have levelled it up by now if we had someone with abit of pace and quality in Boyd’s position. He’s offering nothing and Derby can’t defend for the life of them.
  5. Did my eyes deceive me, or were they actually doing a lasso based dance to ‘Singing the Blues’ prematch. Got to be up there with the worst things I’ve seen at a football match.
  6. They sat in the away end with us at the Lane to be fair. Think they slagged off the atmosphere in the home end too that night.
  7. Remember seeing him at Middlewood as a kid on a Half Term Soccercamp. We got him to promise us a goal that week, and he scored away at Tranmere on the Friday iirc! Sure I read, maybe on Twitter, a few months back that he’s an agent living in London now! Sure it was him, might’ve been another flash in the pan from that era. Right on time TrickyTrev!
  8. Considering his age and our situation, we’d be daft not take good money in the summer if it was offered. He’s not going to get much better, if atall.
  9. I’m in my late-20s. I’ll happily gift the club £2500 if we manage 5 consecutive seasons in the Premier League, in its current guise. I seriously think English Football as we know it now will have been turned upside down before we even come close to this scheme bearing fruit for those that get anything three years plus. Also, the price of the one year only serves only as a worrying sign of how much it’ll actually cost for a season ticket if we ever do go up! I said a few weeks back that surely the only amount significant enough to class this a success is anything from £5-10million. Which equates to 10 to 20 thousand fans buying the 1 year package. I just can’t see it. I can’t even see a thousand fans affectively doubling down on their season tickets to get us out of a hole we’ll have fallen back in, in a years time. This isn’t sustainable in the slightest. .
  10. I meant in regards to player recruitment, which is obviously where any money generated from a relaunched 1867 would be going. People can find out a lot about most European players now due to Social Media etc. If they theoretically raised £10million from the fans and rumours started circulating that we were after the same ilk of player that’s landed us in this mess, there’d be absolute outrage. You’d never be able to go to the fans for anything again.
  11. Great point to be fair. He’s asking people who are already peeved about him spending season ticket money on wasters like Abdi, for more money. More money that people will now automatically assume will be wasted again. He said about ‘worth’ at the forum and how if he considered ‘worth’ he would’ve never bought the club. The problem is the modern football fan is very knowledgeable. So regardless of whether they see ‘worth’ in what they’re getting in return. The problem he’s got is even if the majority looked beyond that, they’d look at our spending habits and see zero ‘worth’ to the club in how their money is going to be spent. It’s like he’s stood next to a burning pile of cash and is asking for more cash from the fans to keep the fire going.
  12. A naive part of me had hoped the appointment of a manager like Bruce was the beginning of the end to the chairman’s late night statements. But, I suppose from his point of view, he did have to put up the Dr and his Twitter account at Villa last season.
  13. Apart from the 1867 bit it’s pretty much a detailed summary of what he said at the Forum. I’m hoping it’s just a pre warning that players are gunna be sold. Considering how easily he dismissed the notion that season ticket money has the ability to plug any gaps atall. I just can’t see another 1867 scheme taking off at a price point that amasses a money pot that would bring in anything close to a sizeable sum. He’ll be lucky to break half a million, and even that’d take 10,000 fans at £50 a pop.
  14. Nick Powell’s on good money at Wigan and I’m pretty sure would want to be a top earner if he came here. Think with him there’s a feeling he’ll only leave Wigan for a promotion cert, or someone with Prem football next season more or less guaranteed.
