  1. this is always going to be our problem, we can applaud the Lansdown's for the money put in, but they want (probably legitimately seeing the money the put in) too much say in how the footballing side is run... that will always be a massive problem hen it comes to employing and keeping managers. I could point to many faux pas with managerial choices and interference from the owners to back this up, sadly a lepard does not change its spots, so its all aboard the merrygoround again
  2. Quite possibly, a dig without making himself unemployable He should have gone ages ago, it has been abundantly clear in the whole time he has been here,the best results were when his hands were forced by injury, when he had a fully fit or nearly fully fit squad, all his choices in team selection and results were found sadly wanting. He kept his job because he towed the party line. We will not be hiring an opinionated manager with his own ideas, so I suspect the pool we will be fishing in for a new manager will more likely be a puddle I think Cloughy said it best when tal
  3. Maybe SL didn't like to hear the news LJ wasn't happy about selling talent... this was clearly alluded to in the Sky interview.. yes you can blame injuries, you can blame the team you can blame the ref, you can blame the conditions..... BUT YOU CANNOT BLAME THE HIERARCHY!!!! Its about the only ballsy thing LJ has done in his time here and this IMO got him the chop..he could easily have gone 1 or 2 times in his spell,but did not push the blame in that direction those times. Lets await the next yes man that the Landowns love.
  4. Time to roll out the tired and very unfunny joke Job for Cotts? My actual choice, Chris Hughton
  5. Does a pub need staff to operate? Does a pub need to be open to operate? Yes? Why aren't they open if they can put in 2m social distancing measures? I could run through this process for every other business that are not currently allowed to open. At the very least you wont be man handling your employees spitting in their vicinity and sweating all over them to carry out your job role! But for some reason this businesses are still closed. I am guessing because transmission could be an issue!!
  6. If you play sport to any level you cannot stop spitting you would choke. Twice weekly test should be daily when in this close contact There will be no expense spared as there is nothing they can do to make the 90 minutes on the pitch safer. Other than testing, which from various reports is having varied success in how quickly it picks up positive results. If they dont want to play and forgo their salary fine but they shouldn't be castigated for refusing to play. If they are forced to play, catch covid19 and the worst happens, who will be up for the manslaughter charge? As that I
  7. I just find it bizarre to tell you the truth this is all about money and back handlers nothing to do with health. The guidelines below seem to have been ripped up for money and maybe the mental wellbeing of the general public.. certainly not for the health or mental well being of the players involved. Bullet point 1... it should really just end there, but go past that and the decision to play again is absurd! The transmission risk will be massively higher for team games where spitting, bodily contact sweating and the like will be happening for most of the match in close contact.
  8. Dunno and dont care to be honest germany is not the uk
  9. Remind me the difference in rates of infection and deaths between uk and Germany. Apart from.that I await the incubation period before thinking it's been a success. They could start dropping like flies in a week! And remind me again what the social distancing guidelines and measurement is again... for everyone?
  10. Love it as bame players they all refused to play. Just have the Austrian up front!
  11. ******* crazy decision. Everyone 2 metres apart please.. apart from footballers, get touch tight spit and sweat all over each other for 90 minutes. Noooo it's its perfectly safe it's nothing to do with money! Awful decision. I hope there are lots of players who refuse to play.
  12. I would go so far to say due to the close physical contact spotting shouting etc etc all those things where droplets from the mouth spread.. any team sport that involves close physical proximity and contact should be the very last "business" that should be going back to "normal" and that is without crowds. Testing is fine up to the point it is taken.. you could be positive a few hours later.. it would be pretty obscene the amount of texting kits needed each week to facilitate football going back to business
  13. The big part in not progressing as far as i could tell at the time was Jimmy's son dying. He could never give the club everything he wanted to after that. As we were hitting the heights Jimmy's world was ripped from beneath him. A tale of what ifs for city and a truly terrible tale for Jimmy and his family.
  14. There should be no salary cap. You cannot dictate how much someone at the top of the game should earn. There should be a maximum salary budget, not dictated by revenue, but by a predetermined amount. All sponsorship should be concluded between player and sponsor with no involvement with the club concerning it being a part of any wage deal. This way a team cannot monopolise all the top players or players that perceive a team to be big will need to lower their wage expectations to accommodate lots of top players in said team. This should be world wide and salary budget set ac
  15. Yep add in to the worrying findings coming out of South Korea you would have to question how far down the line the season will restart. One thing is for sure with no people in attendance. Player and staff coming out of furlough to play. A lot of teams will go bust without the attendances and furlough payments
