    New Shirt Sponsor to be announced

    From my understanding of FFP, every extra pound of actual revenue allows SL to invest more of his wealth in some way. So the value of the new deal in effect has a multiplied effect on total investment, incremental gains become bigger - but morally I personally feel conflicted with betting and it's prominence in football. No easy answer to this I think
  2. Someone better with IT skills needed for that, tweet is by a guy called Will Jones though. It's an interesting way to conduct yourself for sure. Text as per below... Saw someone claiming "the truth about Adam Baker is easy to find on Otib". Went to Otib. Read FOURTEEN PAGES of bile, innuendo, gossip, and the most astonishing misogyny. Came away none the wiser but feeling soiled. Remembered why I never go on Otib any more.
  3. Not sure if mentioned on this thread, however Jon Lansdown has liked a tweet calling out the users of this forum, he is of course entitled to his opinion, but a poor PR message from a guy who needs to do better in this regard.

    Surprise on Sunday.

    I knew this one statement would be the most interesting sadly. It is in my opinion because the players don't deserve a free game. Please tell me why the senior pros should have a day off?

    Surprise on Sunday.

    It's great to see we have 16 y/o ready to break in and impact a championship match, if that's the case. As a cat 2 academy we must have hidden this gem away from prying eyes. If however he isn't ready, these 5/6 injuries are a bit of joke tbh, and for me an insight into a club that's too nice. Leadership and culture comes from the top down, that's a fact. Our mental weakness has been pitiful, if we are now letting players hang up their boots a week early, for whatever reason, let's not dress it up as us having a 16 y/o wonderkid. This game for me is a must win, not for league position, but for multiple senior pros to turn up and deliver - this should not be treated like a free match, the second half of this season does not warrant it. As an aside best of luck to the youngster, prove me wrong - but the softness of this club is a joke, and not extended to how they deal with us, the supporters.

    What's behind our mediocre 2018 form?

    I think the big change has been post Wolves at home, the nature of the defeat, and suspension to Frank was gutting. We now look fatigued and low on confidence, we need a "Wolves" game of our own, to drive belief. Only my opinion mind.

    Interesting comments by Freeman

    100% agreed - correct way of looking at it

    Engvall hip injury

    We had eyes on Gus and Ollie Watkins at the same time, from what I understand LJ favoured Watkins but we went with Gus - these things don’t Always turn out ala Kodjia, he will ship out soon no doubt and will be hopefully the exception as opposed to the norm.

    New signings needed for promotion?

    I can answer the last bit, yes there was and still is ill feeling. A few of the more prominent senior pros from the 06 -08 squad talked me and my mates through it once, they had a strong belief certain players held us back and weren't picked on merit.

    Advertising Boards

    @Mkelly This is surely the correct option? No personal attack on you here, but the hoardings on Tuesday were a joke, and advising a % change is too abstract, sit in the Lansdown lower and see what it looks like, and then test until its acceptable. Surely this is agreeable?

    SSN last night.....

    Tbf it doesn't bother me too much, however the Beeb write up is quite horrific.... http://m.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41235275

    Lansdown the real story

    He is a billionaire businessman ploughing his money into the club. Do people really expect him to be a media savvy middle of the road interviewee? Geoff did a good job pushing for something sensational and got a few poorly worded answers, but little that was worth the furore on here. People moan when they hear the same old interview littered with clichés, yet when someone strays from a pr script the same people get upset. He has invested more than anyone. Fact. He knows the buck stops with him. Fact. He is sticking to his principles, which we may not agree with right now, but just maybe he has learnt his lessons the hard way re managers. He has the right to do this as he is the owner, the same way 91 other clubs are run, rightly or wrongly. Who is next on the hitlist?

    Bring in players with "potential" when we needed players for the here and now - then sack the coach who is trying to develop said potential. Talk about insulating yourself, no lose situation for Ashton. If we gamble on transfers and had succeeded he is a genius, gamble and fail blame the coaches - genius. As a club we have lost all humility, it's toxic and will take years to repair. football clubs are built on people, look at the ones our club is built on right now - depressing.

    I may be wrong, but it isn't naivety - I know what MA and co are about - But I was told by someone unconnected to our club, that knows him, that DT has been plotting an escape for a while.
