  1. Going off the video evidence I've seen the club need to put in an official complaint and get the second yellow card rescinded, regardless of what the current rules are. Like most, all I've wanted to see, is FF play against the pigs at home. At his best. He's missed this fixture for one reason or another and it's frustrating. Whilst his two game ban means he's actually fine to play against the pigs, what it means is the following... He will only start against them if we do not win the next two games, without his involvement. I want us to win the next two games. If he does start against them it means we haven't picked up 6 points. The next two games are also home games, where I want to be entertained by our best player. He's currently picking up form and may need the next two games to be at his best against the pigs.
  2. Take this view point. Look at where we are in the league, in the time you claim Reach and Bannan have been prominent. Look at where we finished in league when FF was prominent. Look at the end of last season when FF came back from injury. Look at that free kick against Preston, look at how we looked more of a threat when he was in the pitch. Look at the excitement in the crowd. Bannan and Reach do not offer us what FF offer us. Bananan is also prone to injury. Now I'm not advocating to sell them, but I would sell them above FF any day of the week.
  3. Here we go again. Every. Single. Season. Do not sell him. He's out best player. Sell Reach/Bannan first if must.
  4. That's the issue I'm getting at. Season ticket holder with 600 points gets ticket, but doesn't go, gives it to a friend and gets 10 TPP. Season ticket holder without enough points sits in the home end of an away game, doesn't get the 10 TPP, but goes to the game. Next big game that same season ticket holder has 10 points less than the required amount and misses out. The system on a whole is trying to be fair, (I get that), but it needs tweaking a little and a better staggered sales process could make the system even better. Anyways I'm done, it is what it is. This club really deserves to be in the prem with the support it has.
  5. That would be great thank you. Lol. Look all I'm saying is that the system needs tweaking, i.e the staggering of sales. The allocated time for those with more points seem to be a lot longer, for example if you had 500 points you had the whole weekend to buy tickets. Those with 490 points would have had from 9AM until 1PM, if there were any left. This takes out the competition of those willing/prepared (or more organized) to queue early, whether that be online or in person. Final point is that 6000 season ticket holders with 500 or more points seems strange to me given the amount of season ticket holders we have and the amount of away games I know I've been to.
  6. Unfortunately you only get TPP for games attended. Otherwise my TPP would be much higher.
  7. The problem with the system is that friends who buy tickets for games say Forest away and then can't turn up, don't return the tickets to the club, they sell them to friends/family. They then still keep the 10 TPP, when in reality that 10 TPP should go to the friend/family member or someone who wanted to go to the game that was next in line. I agree that it should be staggered with Season Ticket Holders/ Membership and then general sale, but how season ticket sales are staggered need to be looked at.
  8. I think they need to stagger the ticket sales differently. Alllowing those with 500 points the whole weekend to buy the tickets and leaving those with 490, such as myself literally 30 seconds before they were all sold out is a bit harsh. It's now a closed shop. I prefer a system where it allows those who have shown loyalty/commitment AND those who are prepared to queue early to actually have a chance to get one of these headlining games.
  9. You post makes no sense and I shouldn't waste anytime on a nonsense post, but eff it. Sometimes you have to spell things out to thickos. A better player doesn't mean a better team. For me, Bannan takes too much control of the ball, he collects it too deep and gets out of position when he goes on his mad runs. The two noticeable occasions we have played (alright) is against West Bromwich and today. In both matches Bannan didn't play. In both matches Onomah started and got took off. In both matches when he got taken off we were noticeably worse. Over to you.
  10. He made bad substitutions that could have cost us 3 points. Should never have taken off Fletcher and he should only have brought Hutchinson if we got a 2 goal lead, because the midfield were comfortable. As soon as he made those subs the ball was in our half for the remainder of the match. This is because Nuhiu is incapable of winning any challenges. When Bannan is available he should be on the bench we seem to play better overall when he's not in the team.
  11. 1) 4 defeats in a row, 2) No Nando, 3) Just lost 0-4, 4) Away on a Friday night at the sty. Doesn't sound good does it. Look, You can say your aren't watching it. You can say your watching it on your own. You can look at the telly, the Beeb or the Twitter or Owlstalk or Facebook. You ain't changing the result. What will be will be. So, let's meet up at the usual pace... Red Lion in Withington. https://www.redlionpubmanchester.co.uk/ You can wear your colours, (I will be). For public transport the 152 (£1.00) goes there from Piccadilly Gardens. Really easy to get to. Lets all get meet up and celebrate smashing the piggie b@stards together. "OvO" UTO, FTB, WTID "OvO"
  12. It's expensive for all clubs in the Championship to compete at the top. Only 3 teams get promoted. This means ALL clubs will be in debt. We had a shot and it didn't work. We go again with restrictions. We are not in threat of administration, unless Chansiri leaves. The alternative is to balance the books and play lower end Championship or League 1. I personally don't want that.
