  1. After a week of managerial sackings. It makes you wonder if he would still be in a job at 90% of the club's in the Championship. Fair play to him. He's learnt and evolved. I was one of many that wanted him gone. I was wrong, and will be the first to admit it.

  3. ncnsbcfc

    Leeds fans

    Is there any plans to extend VAR into the Championship? I know it's been hit & miss in the PL. But in general it would help some of the awful officiating we've seen this season.
  4. Always been a massive Astros fan; from the time i lived in Houston as a child. Used to go down to the Astrodome all the time; it was massive and a pitcher's paradise.
  5. Not in his best position on the left, as he is predominantly right footed. But much improved yesterday, from his last time in that position against Leeds. He seems to have toughened up a bit, both mentally and physically. As he would often get bullied off the ball in the past. I can certainly see him getting a new contract soon. I know he got one at the start of the season for a couple of years; but am led to believe it was on reduced terms. I stand corrected if that isn't the case. Anyhow, well done to Taylor for stepping into the breach.
  6. @Davefevs Psychologist thankfully. She lectures at Bristol Uni. Psychiatrist are doctors first, then train in psychiatry.
  7. It's a psychiatrist, not a psychologist. As someone who is married to one, there is a huge difference.
  8. Reading Cotterill's post. Is seems there is some acknowledgement that there is questionable financial dealings that gave gone on in the past. In law you have actus rea (guilty act); and mens rea(guilty mind) to prove a criminal offence. Whilst his mental health may be a mitigating factor. His addictions (I'm guessing gambling), seem to have played a key motivating role in what has gone on. I think that you could read into it, that he knows what he did was wrong. He has stated that "gangsters" are involved; which points towards money lending. It all seems like another footballer ponzi scheme. Hopefully these are historic allegations, and not from the present; since he has been receiving treatment for his mental health act.
  9. Don't know what it was with Semenyeo yesterday. He just seemed to be in a complete daze. Graham and I were watching him as the balls were going past him. He didn't seem to react or even anticipate what was happening. Either offensively or defensively. When KP came on eventually(should have been at least 10-15 mins earlier); I feared he was going to be taken off, he was that bad. God knows what that would have done for his confidence; but it would have been totally justifable. As others have said; to see players that had been on the pitch all game go sprinting past him was unforgivable.
  10. Apologies, you are quite right. Forgot Brentford was 1-1.
  11. @Davefevs I think his performance yesterday, may provide the tipping point to getting someone else in until Jan. Frankly amazing that we as a club, have no options from the under 23s to step up; and calls into question our entire policy over strikers over the last 12 months. LJ stated at the end of last season that only 59 goals was one of the reasons we didn't get promoted. Yet quickly reduced the striker numbers with getting rid of Eisa, with no-one coming in. We seem to have been obsessed with getting Eddie in, at the expense of bringing in the 2/3 other forwards that were needed. It was always obvious that Taylor was going, but there seemed no planning for either his or Eisa's replacements. As others have said Semenyeo looks miles away from being at the required standard. An injury to Fammy, and then what? Even with Afobe coming in, We were short; and that would have been the same situation with Niketa. Yes, we are at the top end of the scoring charts. But that won't continue. Take out the Preston game; where baker and Moore scored from set pieces; and we have scored 1 goal in the last 3 games.
  12. @Bob Bob Super Bob @Fordy62 With all that said. Wiltshire Police didn't suspend him until after he gave a private briefing to the Press; and went behind their backs. The senior officer team would have felt compromised by his actions; and thrown the book at him. I think at that stage any support for him from the leadership team would have gone. Hence the gross misconduct charge also included that aspect of the case. The DCC who had previously supported him in court, could see he's been a bit of a cock about it all.
  13. @Bob Bob Super Bob Ultimately PACE is a guideline, and not a law. You can breach the guidelines on PACE, whether it is Code C(interviews) or Code D (id evidence) whatever; as long as you demonstrate to the court your rationale for doing so, ie honest held believe you were doing the right thing.it is then up to the judge to decide the matter. As someone who has done urgent interviews, I can honestly say that what fulcher did was from my viewpoint honest, but ultimately non evidential as Becky was already dead, and provisions for an urgent interview wouldn't apply; and he would have known that. Regardless of how the court cases played out; Wiltshire Police going after him in the way they did was in my eyes reprehensible. It was all to do with Becky's father making a complaint. That didn't happen until much later, after the court case, when it didn't go the way he wanted. If the first court had convicted halliwell of Becky's murder, there would have been no complaint, and no disciplinary procedures. A real shame, as like @Fordy62 says, he was not dishonest; and just tryiny to do the morally honest thing to do.
  14. I'm sure I've seen a number of articles in the press about his questionable practices with agents. This has led I believe to Boro taking him to court, and Birmingham getting shot of him on the hurry up. I'm amazed Sheff Wed have employed him to be honest, with all this going on. It does appear however that they've been turned down by a number of managers. So maybe both parties were desperate. https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/new-claims-over-wiped-laptop-16535755
  15. Failing to provide? @Fordy62 Normally carries an automatic 18 month ban on first offence. If you know you're way over, then briefs will always advise you to not provide. If you are 3/4 times over, it would be 2-3 year ban. A long time since I've been on the intoximeter I think the judiciary know that the sentence was on the harsh side. Hence why he's only spent one day in jail, and then been released on bail pending his appeal. Will get knocked down to 2 year ban I reckon.
