No chance of that happening

Yeah.

 

No chance of a team, bottom after a quarter of the season, having scored only 4 goals, remaining bottom.

Watched them a few times and occasionally they show a spark of how they played last season but it looks like teams have sussed them out 

 

Impossible! How can anyone have sussed out Wilder's tactics?

 

It's accepted by everyone who knows football that Chrissy Wilder's footballing brain is the size of Jupiter. He's managed 911 games and never been sacked you know! I imagine he's never lost a game in all that time either; how could he? Even if he did lose a game, it wouldn't have been his fault; it'll have been because the opposition were paying more than £40/week to their players, or his team was the only one that missed the pashun of their supporters, or was the only team that has ever been affected by injuries!

 

Poor old Chrissy; it's a crying shame!

They haven't done anything of note for VAR to turn over in fairness.

That would be fantastic but they've also had 2 years of prem money to add into that calculation, minus wages of course. So many clubs have a year or two in the prem then implode and pay for it for a long time afterwards. Would be great if it happens to them. I think unless you have Man City money, the Norwich way makes sense. I'd rather be up there for a season, spend very little, come down with loads of cash then go back up the season after than suffer for years financially because of paying ridiculous money to wasters you will come to hate. 

 

You need to be able to use the European market effectively too.

 

That's why I think Brentford would have done OK, because they have an in-depth knowledge of it.

 

That United seem clueless in this regard is really Abhorrence's fault, as it's his responsibility to establish the scouting networks there.

 

We need to do the same.

To be fair to Brentford they seem to do well getting the best out of lower league players, bit like Wilder, obviously Watkins prime example, signed from Exeter and ends up getting sold for nearly 30 million. Think they'll end up selling Ivan Toney for a big fee if he continues his form aswell, another player plucked from League One.

Think is with Toney is that he has took a while to flourish, he has had a couple of decent moves (Newcastle) but never seemed to kick on. Brentford do have a knack of getting the right players at the right time and playing them in the right formula.

Ah right 


That's it then

 

I'm 100% convinced


They can't be neutral because they're on the sponsors boards at other local teams

 

FFS

FFS I was just pointing out that they shouldn't be sponsoring one team in the area when broadcasting impartiality, 

i never said they're bias or anything. 

 

Put it this way you wouldn't see a councillor who say's they're impartial about the tree felling campaign , then wears a 

Monty Pythons tee-shirt with I'm a lumberjack and i don't care on it would you ?

 

And during these hard times wouldn't it have been better publicity sponsoring the likes of Chessy or Donny instead of them £100 million blunts.

 

Just a point about neutrality , Spain were neutral during WW2 but it didn't stop them refuelling U-Boats in southern Spain did it FFS.

Are they sponsoring them? How much are they paying them?

Yes, you're right.

 

There's no doubting that they know the British lower-league market.

 

I think that in the PL it's difficult to unearth British gems, and I reckon that it's overseas where clubs need to look.

 

I once read/heard that Brentford have a room in which people continually scour the foreign market.

 

Basically, it's all they do.

 

I bet they'd already got a list of overseas players lined up had they gone up, and they'll have one for if they go up this time.

 

Nobody can question Wilder's knowledge of the lower leagues here, but he's in the dark where the Continent is concerned.

 

I blame Abhorrence for that; it's not as if he didn't know what would happen if the Blades went up.

January might be hilarious, seeing Uniteds attempts of finding players to win them survival 

 

All they have to do is not sell a player to their relegation rivals who returns to score the vital penalty against them in the final game of the season to confirm their relegation.

 

If they can just do that it's already an improvement on last time.

Might also be a fire sale of their 'better' players to fund it....or the ones who want out

 

Their ‘better’ players are all late 20s or older... can’t see anyone handing over big money for 28/29 year olds who’ve had one midtable PL season
