  1. You have to react to how they change shape or it just gets worse.
  2. Phew! Take the three points and try to sleep well tonight.
  3. Surely not, this just can’t happen, some of these players were brought into the club by MA....
  4. So, when we bought all these great players you assume it was the manager at the time who had time to go and watch games all over the country to scout numerous players? Or......maybe it was a scouting network who were asked to look for a type of player requested by the coach / manager, who then fed the information up - to the head of player recruitment (e.g. MA type of person) to sift through all the choices who then finally made recommendations to the board. Nothing has changed except lots of stats etc available online nowadays, we always had someone at the top of recruitment, t
  5. What are the alternative options available to us when choosing a manager besides ‘humans’? Are we ready to accept an AI manager or will they always be human?
  6. OK, so who is the perfect club you want us to emulate and why hasn’t every other team followed the same magic formula? Surely it’s as easy as that? Unfortunately this whole saga is symptomatic of the modern world where everyone want everything and they want it right now. I’ve watched City since 1960’s so I too would like success soon as I may be running out of time soon When I were a lad...... we saved for things, bought cheaper until we could afford to buy what we really wanted, now it’s everything has to be brand new the minute you’re married, holidays on the Moon not WS
  7. Tungsten darts were a nice little earner, made in the toolroom..
  8. Great review of the current situation but surely - at least according to @Bassomylord, you should have identified how we can implicate Mr Ashton (a non medical / training person) into any of the reasons as to why we have such a big list of similar injuries.
  9. Exactly - they may have technically avoided FFP rules but morally they are bankrupt.
  10. Although their training camp trip to Dubai (!) was within the guidelines at the time it was hardly within the spirit of the guidelines. I understand they did have an aircraft chartered just for them and separate hotel space etc but I’m not convinced they really needed to go to Dubai to train - Arbroath at this time of year can be nice....
  11. Excellent stream for free, I didn’t even have one minute of buffering. I did log onto the website about half an hour prior to ko not that it should make any difference.
  12. We’ve got more injuries than they had at the Somme!
  13. I’m guessing players in their team have also eaten lots of turkey as well?
  14. Not in recent seasons, but the free kick by Norman Hunter when he was pretending to tie his laces up and then sprang up to smash it in the net was very good and hilarious.
  15. Human? I think most people on this planet are human! I think you may (any many others U25) may not understand this human concept. What you should be saying is he’s a decent bloke.
  16. I don’t think it’s why Holden was appointed it’s more about why the board didn’t want to appoint anyone else - if that makes sense. Houghton was a clear favourite with all all the credentials but he wanted £4M salary plus he wanted to bring in his entire back room staff. Getting rid of the existing backroom staff would have cost another lump (yes I know SL has loads ) on top of the money they had to pay to LJ. All this happened in the middle of a very uncertain pandemic and meltdown of financial markets and SL being the astute money man he is just didn’t see the point of simpl
  17. Look at Tinnion bigging them up? isn’t that his job - to bring the youngsters on and give them confidence or would you rather he just destroyed all their dreams and why they played for the club since 9 year olds? This is the real World, not FIFA2020 or some other internet game, it’s tough and it’s real - something most of today’s kids need to realise pretty quick or they’re going have a reality check when they get into the real world and they can’t just press ‘play again’.
  18. As someone who lives in that area I don’t know of anyone who has tested positive during this entire episode, not that I get out much at the moment I take all the precautions advised and will continue to do so to help myself and others.
  19. The above offer is the 'headline' offer for Sky monthly when searched but I don't want to commit to 3 months without knowing how much we will be on after this existing batch of games. The offer below, at £26.03 for only a month, looks more of the package I'm looking to go for:- https://www.gamivo.com/product/now-tv-sky-sports-1-month-pass?npr=1&adm=1&currency=gbp&gclid=CjwKCAiA4o79BRBvEiwAjteoYCN6k-AtPnFlO1c5VawSDA2_4HZ0St7bEmof1N2jwcUUlyOoljY6uBoC5_oQAvD_BwE Anyone any experience of using that option?
  20. except the OP who is now on the Samaritans ‘watch’ list?
  21. Moore wasn’t even aware the ball was coming until it was too late! Their attacker was watching Bentley who should never have put Moore under that pressure on the edge of the box. Once Moore had the ball he should have cleared it anywhere he could but was probably so full of surprise and thinking ‘why has Bents passed it to me with an opponent on my shoulder’, as he was processing those thoughts the striker robbed him - game over. Bentley 75% to blame for doing something he could see was going to cause a problem. learn and move on.
  22. Season long loan to Swansea, hopefully their ‘identity /style’ will suit his game and he gets plenty of time to show the undoubted talents he has.
  23. We’re top of the table - people are stunned and at a loss as how to react. We’ve all probably fallen through a black hole into a this parallel universe, don’t worry it’ll be back to normal by Christmas.
  24. We’re not playing tomorrow
