  1. 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.
  2. Exactly - they may have technically avoided FFP rules but morally they are bankrupt.
  3. 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....
  4. 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.
  5. We’ve got more injuries than they had at the Somme!
  6. I’m guessing players in their team have also eaten lots of turkey as well?
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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’.
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. except the OP who is now on the Samaritans ‘watch’ list?
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. We’re not playing tomorrow
  18. For all the big pay packets and odd glory days footballers get its easily forgotten how much sacrifice has to be made in the very early years until getting to a reasonable standard - if you get there at all. I used to work with someone who’s lad played in the City under 9’s the amount of travelling and cost he had to provide to support his lad’s potential (with less time for other siblings) was unbelievable so fair play to the lucky ones who do make it eventually. Even if it is well paid, it’s a short career with the constant threat of injury which could force you into an ‘ordinary
  19. It would be funny to thrash them but you know what a bunch of cloggers they are, we can’t afford to lose players early on. It’ll also be difficult to get them out of our stadium once they realise what they’re missing .
  20. I don’t think it was outright lies, as discussed on many other threads the aspiration of the board was to appoint a big name to take us forward but sometime during the process a reality check kicked in (hence today’s request by JL to not request refunds) and the budgets the club was able to offer the candidates was nowhere near what they would all have normally expected and be given. At the end of the process they had no one willing to take the club ‘forward’ with the new post COVID budget except for Dean who obviously jumped at the chance. I suspect many other clubs are also g
  21. Bizarre. I know time goes by quickly these days but have I missed Xmas and it’s April Fools Day already? A meal up in the executive boxes might be an experience for people who never get to go to that area, but a picnic table on a football pitch is not one I’ll be booking on Valentines Day.
  22. About 2 weeks ago- and I got the job! It’s a top secret site near Reading, they told me I’m going to be the Chief of Underground Nuclear Testing - at least that what I think it stood for . Can’t help being old school at my age
  23. I don’t think it was lies or contempt, it was about the original aspirations of the board, the timing of the appointment and the ever dire financial constraints the World finds itself in post COVID Unless you already have a replacement ready to go (i.e. without waiting to see who else might be available / interested) you have to go through a thorough process to get the best person for the job, as follows:- Wk 1 - sack current coach, advertise in appropriate places, wait for applications to flood in from across the World. Tell the fans we have amazing applicants to take us to
  24. You’ve seemed to have conveniently forgotten you might actually get old one day yourself . When / if you get to three score years and ten and suffered as much as we have whilst watching City all these years I hope you have the decency to come on here (or the VR version of it) and apologise to us all before we come back and haunt you .
  25. For richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health - applies to being a football supporter as well! If you still like football I suggest you latch onto a ‘successful’ Premiership team ASAP - to which you have no real association with - other than want to look like someone who wants to be considered fashionable, successful and smart like the team you’ll follow. Once you’ve done that we’ll all be entitled to call you a plastic fan like thousands of others that also go down the same route. Byeeeeee.
