  1. No "News" - must be good news

    The rumours all stemmed around mainly one player, and even those rumours never hit the actual truth in revealing any hint of his pending court case. If we're gonna go with the theory there is no smoke without some kind of flame, then you can probably safely say that the Chinese whispers got turned into supporting whatever agenda the person telling these rumours had. Now that player is no longer at this club and nobody can have an agenda against anybody at the club present, it's probably why the dissenting voices have died down. So a mix of both really.
  2. City vs Manchester - Dustbin Thread (merged)

    Who cares if it was rigged, surely the draw everybody wants?
  3. Our leaky, porous defence.....

    Second most breached out of the top 10. If we look at stats like that I guess we're in the bottom three out of the top 10 in the table so yeah... sort it out.
  4. Scary what we could achieve..... IF

    Erm.. one loss at home since March.. A handful of wins away since the beginning of last season. Are you sure it's our home form that's let us down?..
  5. Tinnion's Tweet

    Didn't he practically walk by himself around the pitch during the lap of honour after Birmingham? At the back with his head half heartedly up when everybody else were in groups talking to each other. We could speculate rumours about dressing rooms bust UPS's way at Huddersfield, Wolves and Burton at home. But the fact rumours exist probably speak volumes that something happened. No smoke without fire.
  6. Tomlin to Cardiff - CONFIRMED

    Now it seeming likely that Lee Tomlin's time here is over, in hindsight does anybody think that he was a genuine Ashton/Johnson target last year? I'm starting to feel it was the marquee signing that fans almost demanded last year as it goes against every transfer principle that they have stated. Don't think we'll ever hear LJ call a new signing "another different club in the bag" again after all this.

    That's the problem with institutional racism/sexism cases when it's inaction of police/local council in dealing with issues. Loads of cases where women being stalked gets dismissed as them being paranoid, and only when a violent crime gets committed against them is action taken, of which then it's too late. Similar as with this case where he repeatedly informed the police that he was a victim of hate crimes yet they didn't log it as continued crime. Any sort of complaint that the police deal with should have been monitored with the utmost seriousness in which this case wasn't, and ultimately there needs to be questions and answers to why this wasn't. Hopefully, the findings of the IPCC can change any racist "hallmarks" they have found and directly change this so we never have another horribly sickening case like this again.
  8. a bit thin

    Taylor Moore was England under 19s captain. Not saying give it to him now, but surely a player to prepare for captaincy in the future?
  9. How fickle are you ?

    I'd like to see this to be honest but I'm struggling to think of when it's happened in England in the Championship. I remember it happening at Yeovil with Skiverton if I'm right? Footballs a weird business with managers, I believe replacing him is a necessity to purely stay up, however I could see him learning from this experience and being successful in the future either with us or another club.
  10. Villa Tickets for Sale / Required (Merged again!)

    I've messaged you mate
  11. Fair play to the Chinese league....

    Maybe it says a lot when our national players are terrible exports? British players should learn their trade across the continent. A top flight of sub-standard players won't improve the national team.
  12. Football Manager 2016

    Thought i'd post this seeing there was a thread present. Fourth Season in and second season in the Premier League. Ditched 5-3-2 after the first season. Money seems to come in January second season depending on where you are in the league. Premier League first season is extremely tough. Not too much to spend in terms of the rest of the league and the team is lacking in quality. Was lucky that a mid season run basically secured my league status. This is my team now start of the fourth season. Big Transfers since I started 1st season: Stephen Gleeson did a great job for me, cost 1.5 million. Kyle Lafferty as well was available and did a great job of doing what Wilbs is supposed to do now but a lot better. Harrison Reed on loan from Southampton played an extremely vital role in staying up. Nobody left permanently, some went out on loans. 2nd season: Alex Smithies was available for 230k. Absolute bargain. Adam Armstrong on loan was also vital, he scored 25 league goals to win the league. In January sold Freeman to Norwich for 2.1 million and used the increase in budget to get in Will Hughes for something like 5 million from a League One Derby County side. 3rd season: Cardiff went up with us (through the play-offs after finishing 6th on the last day...) and they wanted Korey Smith for 9.25 million. Sold him (sadly) and got in Marco Van Ginkel for 10 million (who instantly went to being a 20 million pound player.) Tim Krul came in for 4 million, Victor Moses for 4 million, Zach Clough for 2.8 million and Andre DeYedlin for 3 million. Man City bought Alex Smithies for a million and a lot of the current squad apart from a few players (Flint, Bryan, Ayling and Kodjia) were either released or sold for little money. Finished 12th after a good mid season and had the satisfaction of relegating Cardiff in Wales to also keep us safe. Good times. 4th season: Budget gets ridiculous, out of favour current top Premier League players available. Everton got relegated so a lot of top players available at cut prices. They wanted 30 million still for Stones at the beginning of the Transfer Window so got Galloway instead for around 9 million, but just as the season started he went to Stoke for 7 million. Sturridge and Ramires are on loan for 20% of their wage (around 25k each a week.) Benteke after the first season went to Watford for 3.3 million (which is probably the most unrealistic transfer i've ever seen in any football manager game) and they just got relegated. Went and bought a load of decent European players such as David Selke, Oliver Sorg and Suso and made profits out of Victor Moses and Zach Clough. Would happily though take 12th again. Oh and one last image. Rovers are back in non-league.
