Re: BFTG - Cardiff

If you have a manager who respects the officials, acts professionally towards them then that will translate into the playing squad.

Steve Coppell v Neil Warnock, being two polar opposites in this respect

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

In hockey (field hockey) they have green cards for minor offences like appealing to the umpire too much etc. The player gets the green card and is sent off for 2 minutes (or more for repeat offences). The game restarts straight away (even with the player still running off the pitch). The clock for ...

Re: Will we get found out again?

At the start of the season it looked as though we had a weaker team that the one we finished with due to the loan signings returning and the self imposed embago etc affecting new signings. (when this was put to him by Tim Dellor, the open and honest Jose Gomes understandably didn't put his current s...

Re: Financial Fair Play

Really don’t think the Dai’s are looking for dividend payments. First of all the club needs to be profit making and secondly they are billionaires and really don’t need it ! At one point they would have simply been millionaires and you could have argued then that they don't need anymore cash/assets...

Re: Financial Fair Play

Do the owners own 100% of the club? Didn't STAR have a few shares? Some of this asset transferring / charging rent etc is perhaps just a way to ensure the owner receives a return on his indirect cash loan/investment. It can't be paid out as a dividend as other shareholders e.g. STAR would legally be...

Re: Financial Fair Play

Also, clearly, you can only sell your ground once. Unless you buy it back. Sell to owner for £100m Spend £100m on players Buy back from owner for £1 and repeat The value of the club would, in theory increase significantly if the £100m was invested wisely so the owner's shares would increase in valu...

Re: Unauthorised data gathering / Texting during games

Can't see anything there which would stop you texting or posting to social media as long as it doesn't contain photos, video or audio taken in the ground. There's also this, but it doesn't apply to mobile phones. 19 Save as set out in paragraph 16 above, no person (other than a person who holds an ...

Re: Gunter, GMac and 'the Reading way'?

I agree it's a strange way to treat two of our most long serving players ... On the face of it, I agree. Maybe they've not taken the news well and are moping around/being unprofessional? (sounds very out of character for these two though). Perhaps they are not being forced as a punishment but as a ...

Re: BFTG - HULL CITY (AWAY)

Yiadom has had two really poor games so far. Could only imagine how much longer this thread would be if Gunter has put in two similar performances... I wonder who Gomes fancies as second choice RB between Howe, Watson and Gunter. Obviously Gunter is still here, but he seemed to fancy Howe quite a b...

Unauthorised data gathering / Texting during games

Apparently a Hull City Season ticket holder was threatened with ejection for texting during a game, part of a crackdown on unauthorised data gathering. If the next home game is crap I might pull my phone out and start rating the players 5 or lower during in the hope that one of the stewards takes pi...
