  1. I think some people are being a bit dismissive of comparing sales to date now v total ST sales last year. Everyone who bought a season ticket last year had the opportunity to renew. Of that what percentage took up that offer is a MUCH better barometer than how many did we sell at the same point last year. Comparing sales to date between last year and this is like comparing apples and pears - it doesn't really tell us much. It's simply timing of purchase. But even then, 2,000 or 15% down from existing customers, some who possibly could not afford early bird, missed deadline, were reasonably waiting to see what League we will be in; even still that sounds rather impressive. I think there is a lot of spin in how this is reported - using relatively incomparable data to suggest a theme - where it didn't need to be because the bones is still a really good story.
  2. What about someone remanded in custody pending trial? They are still presumed innocent. It's fine to ban until resolved without presuming their guilt. It's all about managing risks.
  3. One tiny little edit and it's what we offered for Lee Tomlin last year. Magic
  4. I never thought it was a good appointment. SC on his own could have been and could well be still. He'll know more about that squad and I don't think he needed Redknapp hand holding. Said at the time HR seemed like a marquee last roll of the dice but really without any logic: no transfer window, no dressing room reliables/enforcers he relies upon (Defoe, Crouch, Krancjar), no Joe Jordan, long time out of coaching, long time away from this league, no commitment to the club. I predict it is going to be Brum dropping.
  5. It's a tough one. Of course right now there's not really any justification for going other than Wright and Flint. However, I think Magnusson has (by some way) a lot more potential than those two. Personally I would like to see Maggs start the next two. Going in to August he'd be the first name in defence for me. He isn't the finished article yet but the only way he's going to improve is by playing. I don't think he's so far behind either Flint or Wright that he'd be an Achilles heel, and over the course of the season I really think he'd become a key player. Voted other. Short term and until now Flint and Wright, but from now on HM + BW/AF for me.
  6. I doubt they'd do that. One thing every playoff hopeful wants is a bit of form heading in to them. Given what happened this weekend, I imagine it will be best 11 available.
  7. I think even a Brum win would leave them 5 clear with 6 to play for and worse GD e.g. they won't be safe today regardless edit echo, echo, echo...
  8. I am Johnson in for sure. Things have changed and he is effecting games again like he was at the start of the season. Half time something happened in that dressing room which inspired the players to believe and to victory after a dreadful first half. Again at 2-1 their heads could have gone but they didn't. He may very well have stumbled upon the team but I am liking the subs he's making and he is demonstrating he has learnt from mistakes. He's not tinkering!! Dont get me wrong I think he has to be out of lives and is due no patience whatsoever next season.
  9. And since coming back in to the fold. If this is the player Huddersfield and Forest saw can see why he was rated. Mind you, Forest fans said he was a player of extreme hot and cold patches.
  10. He was totally totally incompetent and should not be refereeing.
  11. Really excellent performance from the snake today. Could see the value in the nuisance factor in recent weeks but had the impression his ball skills were really quite limited. Based on today, not so. Really am excited by him and Djuric plus one or two more. It'd be remiss not to mention Tammy today though. That was the best I've seen him yet I think. Good skill, good awareness, tireless running and absolutely flawless hold up play particularly at the end.
  12. We could be called Hargreaves Lans.... I can understand the OP's Reading mate's view. The PL is a bitch. It's a competition which must pay the worst teams a king's ransom just so they have fighting chance of staying in business. It's why I'm really not desperate for us to get there unless and until we are ready as a club.
  13. But you miss something Nogbad which is really rather significant... would we then care where he ends up? Imagine this; we go on a record losing run in the pre-xmas period but start to turn results around. In January a team struggling in the league above us want to bring him in. Would we go telling the other club how bad he is and stay on their forum 15 months after the move and regularly contribute in-between with "told you so's", would KD say he'd refuse to do business with him? I can actually give you a great example. Tony Pulis... he was a most unpopular manager, bewildering, beligerant, made us miserable with miserable football, banal interviews, stubbornly refused to change or play any decent football. We all to a man wanted him out. Portsmouth come and take him off our hands. Mint! Did we then go following Pompey's results, telling them what an arse he was etcetc etc. No. Ding dong the king was gone and that's all we bloody cared about. Of course there would be a few belters who would go to the rivals forum and slag off.. but visit, revisit and actually come on with I told you so's and maintaining regular contributions... all a bit sad if you ask me.
  14. LJ called him a "loveable rogue"; Eddie Howe probably only calls him by words of 4 letters; you have his baiting of fans in the summer; you've seen how many yellow cards he picked up because of his gob; the Huddersfield debacle is far from unsubstantiated rumour; that interview @RaspberryRed linked; the way he tries to wind up opponents and opposition fans. Sorry Rich but I don't think this is a smoke without fire situation. I think there is plenty out there that the conclusion he is probably a bit of a git is sound, and not in any way drawn from his level of skill.
  15. No, I think you emptied the lot down your throat and are now feeling the effects.
