    Loan Watch: 2018/19

    Why would we recall him if he's playing regularly? Sending him back to Plymouth isn't going to test him. He's being verbally abused (which is completely unacceptable) by a subset of the crowd, not forced to train with the kids

    Logic or reason doesn't really compare to getting blue passports though, does it?

    Kasey Palmer debut

    Sounds like Bobby Reid in the best possible way

    Kasey Palmer : CONFIRMED SIGNING

    Football forums reflect life in general in my experience; some people are right, some people are wrong and some people are very, very wrong. I think if Palmer is being seen as the final piece of a jigsaw, that's a big risk to take if promotion is an aim this season. However, if he's seen as a talented young player who, if given a fresh start could be a great addition. Think about Danny Rose; I wouldn't have recommended him as a pot wash after he was with us, a couple of years later he's playing for England. If Palmer was 27 and getting mixed reviews I'd think that was probably that. But at 22 and having done well before, I reckon he's a good gamble

    Dale Vince Statement about Bolton. (Merged)

    Definitely. I should have said that I don't think we are immune from that kind of scenario just because we have a wealthy backer, though he is trying to make us more sustainable. That said, we kind if went through that with the AG8, etc. I don't think anyone, regardless of their salary should be forced to tear up a contract but we can certainly stop the club that gives them said contract dishing out anything similar again

    Dale Vince Statement about Bolton. (Merged)

    Eventually, the FA, football league and society in general is going to have to let one of these crisis clubs fold and disappear and use the crisis to sort this kind of thing out. Teams like Bolton (and Birmingham who look like they're heading this way- again) shouldn't have been allowed to sign players, the league should have taken control of contracts, sold their assets to balance the books and made them play out the season with kids and whoever they could get to play for £500 a week. Given the situation that Bolton are in now, they should be allowed to go bust and ejected from the league. It's harsh on the fans, but we can't keep going round in these circles. Football is not sustainable in it's current form and something needs to change

    South Yorkshire Police only want Sheffield derby's during the week

    I live in Sheffield and derby day is crap because a) the roads in Sheffield are a nightmare at the best of times and b) there are a lot of complete nobheads (many of them who don't actually go to games) who come out to play on derby day. That said, I'm not sure SYP have yet earned the right to tell football fans how they're behaving after the Revelations of recent years

    Chelski Loans

    They should bring in a system similar to that in the NHL. You have a contract limit (for example, 50 players aged over 18) and once those players have played over a certain amount of professional games they can be 'claimed' by another club with a tribunal setting the fee if the parent club wants to loan then out again. It wouldn't be a perfect solution, but it would prevent the stockpiling of players
  9. I was one who felt that as a team who largely failed to offer much of a goal threat (after the first month or so of the season when I seem to remember us scoring quite freely), Bolasie was someone we needed to get into the line up. But I agree that there was little to suggest in the cameos he did put in that he'd be sold for £30million a couple of years later. I don't think it was surprising he didn't get much game time, but if he felt he should be getting more game time and that was the driver for him leaving (from memory the reason given was that he wanted to go back to London tbf), hindsight suggests we should have given him those minutes
  10. To be fair to Bolasie, he wasn't really getting the opportunity to play for us at the time. History suggests that maybe he should have been

    I thought he was going on loan to Macclesfield and FFs injury screwed it up?

    Drinking in view of the pitch- Talksport now

    I'd quite like to be able to have a beer watching the football, but I'm usually going home to put kids to bed or driving, so it'd just be one or two. There's definitely a risk that some groups of supporters are going to turn up hammered, drink all through the game and create issues as a result. And as others have said, that's a lot of trips to the toilet!

    Leeds United Away - November

    It's not that much of a coincidence when you consider I live in Sheffield!

    Leeds United Away - November

    It'll make it to general sale I would think. I always going to Leeds, great pubs in the city centre and about 20-30min walk to the ground. I'm actually going to be in Leeds that day by coincidence, might see if I can get a pass from the boss

    Joe Bryan on Football focus

    Just seen the 3 Man City goals from today and all came from the left back area or areas the left back should have been covering. Not saying JB would have stopped them, but he wouldn't have done worse!
