  1. Past hour
  2. Surely that’s on SL, not who is out there?
  3. Interesting, but there's the best part of 8 months between the game TC attended and Liverpool signing the 'permed one', which suggests if he didn't see him between October 70 and May 71 then he can't have rated him that highly. Liverpool paid £33k, slightly inflated in some reports as £35k (doubtless hiding other 'envelope activities' common practice at the time.) The 'permed one', too, references only having had discussions with Liverpool & Preston. Perhaps worth asking him at the Q&A if we'd ever entered into negotiation with him?
  4. Hate to agree. But I do. Feels like a free hit. We're safe, what have we got to lose?
  5. Or they didnt like LJ from the start and are just desperate for him to be gone
  6. Because asking if anyone has lost a 3 year olds full kit didn’t narrow down it enough...
  7. Yep, would be a tricky one to defend though. As if he's that inept then there should be plenty of better candidates out there. I'm far from convinced there are, and SL's track record of appointments indicates more failures than successes.
  8. Not forgetting GJ. The atmosphere for some games was simply fantastic in the EE. IIRC, one game my ears were fizzing. Think it was the same game @Dollymarie was handing out ticker tape (or was it bog rolls)? Not to mention the playoffs.
  9. “Look, no one’s hurting more than me...” ”Nic didn’t touch the ball much, but did look busy” or something like that...
  10. I’d imagine telling us the name on the back would enable results to be narrowed down a bit....
  11. I think the hole in that argument is that it's possible to hold the view that just removing LJ and putting almost anyone in charge for the rest of the season is likely to improve things.
  12. I'm sure he's got enough clout to demand an atmospheric stadium and see it delivered.
  13. It’s not a race to the bottom
  14. Odd that some of LJ's loudest detractors seem to be missing from this thread. Thought they'd be on here and able to reel off a long list of names they'd rather have in charge...
  15. There is the whole world out there to select from. Is looking there any more of a gamble than a manager who managed Oldham and Barnsley for a couple of seasons?
  16. He suits LJ then. LJ looks L1 at best most of the time.
  17. Fair enough. Except I've been asked several times over recent years.
  18. Her and Mick Fleetwood. Can't bear to watch.
  19. Jovankovic, two promotions. Left Maccabi after 6 months to join Fulham last time. Plays nice football. Why couldn't we offer him a deal to leave his Qatari club? Depends how much he is being paid and his career ambitions I guess. If not, if SL doesn't elect for option 3, he should almost certainly go for option 2.
  20. I was caught out in this one too, despite the fact that city have a copy! But what made yesterday even more annoying is that the phone system was down and no mention of it in the OS! I started calling before 2:30 and never got through once!
  21. Seems an odd approach to me given that once they're in the box it's much harder to challenge without giving away a pen than it used to be and that nowadays most teams have at least one sitting midfielder who can help if a full back goes to challenge a wide player. I know crosses aren't generally that dangerous but I'd want them challenged outside the box.
  22. I'd also add that as well as the points penalty if guilty, the parachute payments should also be a hot topic. I'd like to see it be the case that any- any- side who has overspent their way up gets stripped of parachute payments or has them excluded from the Ffp calculations. More realistic perhaps is a formula. Quite simply eg Exceed FFP by 20% and Year 1 Parachute Payments £40m. Well you only receive £40m or have £10m of that stripped out of the calcs. Year 2 is £33m I believe. Same again, £8.25m removed or disregarded for FFP purposes. Any thoughts @Davefevs?
  23. TBF it's a bit early to write off Benkovic. He'd played 30 minutes of 1st team football this season before joining us, but anyone who gets a cap for a team like Croatia, even for a friendly, must have something going for them.
