Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Derby may be toast off the field as well. According to reports (admittedly in the Mail) they owe HMRC 29m and for any deal to be viable they need to talk HMRC down to a payment of around 7.5m. HMRC are understandably reluctant as if they do that, as it would set a legal precident that other clubs c...

Re: Rival Watch

Derby are a solid side winning 1-0 but there is only so many goals you can score when you are defending for 75% of the game. They don’t concede many though. If they were to win tonight it would be seven points from their last three games all of which have been against top six sides. It will be toug...

Re: EFL to end TV 3pm Saturday blackouts from 2024.

Right idea and about time. As a comparison, every game in top 3 German divisions are shown live and there has been no impact to attendances.

Guess a lot will depend on if you have to pay per game or get a subscription, if the latter is priced well then you may see a drop off but hard to tell.

Re: Points Deduction Incoming!

Heard at the weekend and not one of "my sources" that Swift to Newcastle is very much on. Howe is a massive fan, tried to sign him when at Bournemouth and happy to pay a fee now for him coupled with silly wages. A fee, wages off our books, no brainer? Yep would take it, he has been a litt...

Re: Andy Carroll

I guess his hope is that we may sell Swift, Rafael, Puscas or A.N.Other and be in a position to offer better wages in January. Or if he plays well enough, he may move to a different club. But I think it illustrates what Covid has done to the market. I think Dann and Carroll would have had no issues...

Re: Andy Carroll

According to a story in The Athletic this morning, Big AC is only on £1k/week, which is quite frankly astounding.

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Shambolic performance from United - the fact they are championing that as a result shows how far they have fallen. The stats were well and truly shocking. They are so far behind the other teams, they are years away from winning anything of note. Very much enjoyed the row between Keane & Carragh...

Re: BFTG Swanse(a)

Yeah, I suppose if he is happy here that would mean a lot. Would he be that interested in challenging for the title? If a team like West Brom came I for him say? No. What about if he stays fit til Jan, scores 5 more goals + 3 more assists and Newcastle come in for him and offer him >8.5k a week. He...

Re: BFTG Swanse(a)

tbf not sure how impt the money is to him - He is one of the richest footballers in Britain I believe. So great he still has the hunger to play. If we can just work with him and make things as convenient as possible for him then he seems to be enjoying his time here. Yep convenience is definitely a...

Re: Rival Watch

it can always happen - Barnsley have surprised me just how bad they've been this year compared to last. they must still have some decent players. Peterborough are out of their depth but can score goals. Ideally we can get ourselves in the mix of the pack above us inc the likes of Bristol City and F...

yes Carroll has way exceeded expectations so far. Seems the ideal man up top and a proper leader.

Hull are in good form though, it has to end at some point though. 4 straight wins. Will be a very tough game, we are surprisingly not in too bad form results wise. 7/12.

Re: Relegation

Without the points deduction Derby would themselves have 22 points. Only conceded 18 goals against our 30. Form wise expect them to surpass us by the end of the season. They may well do but playing with absolutely no pressure is often a blessing. They are down, they know they are down so can just e...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Swansea City (a)

Head says we will get passed to death and lose 2-0 because that is just what happens.

Heart says they pass us to death but fail to score, Carroll gets his head on our 1 attacking set play and puts it wide. 0-0.
