From Despair To Where? Come on, we're a bottom 5 team, the whole fcuking season's going to look tricky on paper.


Yeah that's a point. :lol:


Yep - was thinking the whole fixture list looks tricky.

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Hughton's level is the Championship - there's been a lot of noise down here all season even when they were placed ok earlier on, a lot of expensive overseas signings in the summer (and last) have not cut the mustard and he had to revert to the old championship gang to get the points they needed. But...

Re: RIP - Gordon Neate

Very sad news and condolences to his family. Fred forking the pitch at EP at h/t, Jimmy Wallbanks running on the with the magic sponge and the chap whose name I forget now - short, always wore a bobble hat and traipsed around the cinder before game selling Golden Gamble - are three endearing and en...

Re: Championship free agents... who would you have?

Lee Gregory is always a handful, he wouldn't be bad on a free signing. Fer I've always rated but I would imagine him to be on pretty high wages. Wouldn't take many of the others. A couple of the Brentford lads possibly. Not Nick Powell, he's injury prone and quite frankly not very good But I wouldn...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Hoping that the main starters + bench will be kept for next season excluding the 4 loans, here’s my take on where I think we are and the players we might be looking to work with, move on and the recruitment needed. OOC Players Anssi Jaakkola - released John O'Shea - released Danzell Gravenberch - r...

Why does this keep being resurrected every 6 months?

He'd want massive wages and there's much better out there.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (h) sponsored by Timbuk 3

URZZZZ Bod not there either, neither mcshane

McIntyre played Friday. I think the thinking from Gomes was he didn’t need two CBs on bench and he wanted to give O’Shea a final run out


McShane is injured according to JLow, and Bod is made of glass so probably injured again...

Re: Rival Watch

Can only imagine this will only lead to them getting a pretty hefty penalty (if there is still a club to penalise). Comes about because the stadium has lost it's safety certificate ag...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

So the PFA have again loaned money to Bolton to cover outstanding wages so games will go ahead. There's something wrong about all of this, Bassini turns up at EFL yesterday to prove he has funds for the takeover but obviously cannot as the deadline has been extended. I really hope the EFL throw the ...

Re: The League of 4

windermereROYAL I would feel a little sorry for Rotherham if we hadn`t been in a dogfight with them over most of the season, decent bunch of fans and a team that punch above their weight in the shadows of Leeds and the Sheffield teams.


Agree - much rather Millwall had gone down

Found that quite frustrating. Could easily have won it with Meite and / Oliveira.... McCleary failing to convert multiple good opportunities... missing clear balls forward into space, delaying getting the cross in... but we still had enough opportunities to equalise. Mind you, M'bro had plenty of t...

Re: If Bolton don't complete their fixtures

Latest BBC updated report says EFL are expecting Bolton to complete their fixtures by the end of the season and today's game would have gone ahead using youth players if the U18's hadn't played on Thursday. The issue appears to be between Anderson and Bassini rather than the EFL dilligence taking ti...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

I think we're too far into the season to expunge results, so better to award 3-0 walkovers in the final 2 games especially as neither has a bearing on promotion or relegation. Failure to fulfill fixtures should normally lead to expulsion from the league but, as this is a player strike that is causi...
