Re: Relegation

People only want to hear from the owner when things are going wrong - which financially, within the current rules, they undoubtedly are but I never get what they expect the owner to say? Where we are financially is totally predictable. Been on the cards for some time. The club has become little mor...

Re: Relegation

So like Sir John, they’ll soon hit a ceiling, their fans will be asking for more, he’ll look to sell up and then they’ll be back in the same situation they were, along with the majority of the football league? Relating to one of his earlier points, why the hell wouldn't you want your owner to be si...

Re: Relegation

Gotta find three clubs to finish below us. Derby, Huddersfield, Brum, Cov, one of the promoted clubs. Any other obvious candidates.? Huddersfield, Brum, Cov, Luton and Blackpool have strengthened their squads with 34 signings between them. Derby and us are the outliers. I wonder if the club is prep...

Re: Pre-season games 2021/2022

Azeez is 20. Is there any reason why is only on a one year deal? Simple, we haven't learned any lessons at all from Olise, Richards and the lad who went to Porto (Brain Fart, forgot his name lol) :cry: :cry: If there was ever a time we needed a "Director of Football" now is that time!! &q...

Rooney is going the way of Paul Gascoigne. Shame that there'll both be remembered for all the wrong reasons.

Re: Relegation

Right - I get the numbers but apart from Swift & Moore who I understand are on big contracts and down to Gorley but at the same time we've sold the Mad Stad and the training ground in the last 3 years and off loaded the other big earners...those fixed asset sales must have made £50m?? How's it ...

Re: Pre-season games 2021/2022

Suspect that Puscas is sadly another signing that hasn't worked out. Hopefully the money constraints will mean that new additions are carefully selected and slot into the style of play. Not been a disaster by any means - 18 goals in about 60 games isn’t it? But yeah not quite as good as hoped Not t...

Re: Stoke Away

Jagermesiter1871 When will these tickets go on sale? Less than 2 weeks away and nothing on website.


No coaches scheduled for the time being. Might well be the case that the club doesn't sell tickets for away fixtures until the situation changes.

We should be ok in League One in the 22/23 season on the evidence of today's performance.

Re: If it started tomorrow.

skipper So after last night's performance, does Azeez slip into the full squad this season?


Offered some much needed pace. Concern would be if defensively offers enough currently if played out wide.

Re: Relegation

I think more pertinent is the fact that Lincoln also managed 106 points if their results had been 3 points for a win. I seem to recall a lot of chat at the time about clubs under 2pts for a win and it still being us, but don't remember now. Cba to look it up now. It's a fair discussion. My viewpoin...

At least Veljko is approaching the season ahead with a positive mindset. We are , where we are. Transfer policy of the past 5 years or so is coming back to haunt us.

Re: Stadium Name

Their turnover is about on a par with our annual loss. We all know that it is no longer a sustainable business model. Our Chinese owner has thrown the dice and failed. As far as the losses go they'll be written off. Now it's a question of recouping whatever they can by maintaining the club as an at...

Re: Relegation

Transfers this summer window are suggesting there's very little money around. Basically free transfers. Never a better time to have a "financial crisis" and rebuild for the future.
