  1. I’ve been broadly supportive of LJ even when others have been at his neck. But for me (and this was before the break due to covid) it very much felt he’d met his level - yes; year on year improvement in league position, and many changes to the way we brought in young talent/managed squad building, but for me we need some fresh ideas/approaches to specifically the on-pitch side of things. He’s had a lot of time, he’s achieved a fair amount, but at this point I watch the games and just think “what could someone else do with this squad?” I thought exactly that watching a depleted a
  2. LJ will be here until the end of this weird mini season come what may. Am not saying this is ideal, but the break will have given him time, and while he can point to the proximity to the play offs, he’ll not be hooked. Either we give it a real go and he’s likely here when next season, or we fall away badly and he maybe is at risk. But I’d buckle up for it being LJ the next seven games at least.
  3. They play two top seven teams and also the only two teams in worse form than them across the next four; if they can’t get a win before March, will they pull the trigger on this new lad? Surely can’t keep someone who has taken them from 4th to the bottom half inside three months?
  4. What is really positive is with the addition of Wells and Fam’s form, we can actually field two out-and-out strikers with different attributes who cause defences different problems. One of the things that has at times been a bit of a pain is when we have one recognised front man, and several ‘false nines’/attacking midfielders who are similar, so have no different dynamic to put in and shake things up. Sometimes the ‘clubs in the bag’ have all looked a little similar up top, while now we have genuinely varied options, depending what a defence shows.
  5. We’re in the top six with a real shot at playoffs, and if we do bring in Wells, it’s buying the ‘proven’ frontman everyone is always crying out for (and we unfortunately lost in Afobe early doors). Would be the statement of intent we rarely make, so pleased if we’ve actually gone out and done what we have tended to shy away from, which is put money in for an in-form and proven at this level player. Would be actively funny playing him against QPR Saturday if he arrives too.
  6. Vile cowards. Korey Smith doesn’t have to respond to scum like that, and shouldn’t have to be burdened with abuse like that. The internet is amazing, but shows the downsides when it enables disgusting and pathetic low lives like the ones responsible for this trash.

    Boy needs to play, so this works out. He’s 21 and isn’t breaking into the side; better he goes and gets games, and we get to assess him at a later time. Might be frustrating at times, but if we are going to find and improve potential gems, sometimes they have to take a step back to move forwards, and hopefully this is one of those time. Moore clearly improved his game on loan, and while still the finished article, that’s the process; fine and improve potential, and augment that with proven players. Rome wasn’t built in a day and all that.
  8. Hasn’t Fammy scored a couple in the last few games against Stoke? Give him a couple of weeks training alongside AW and start those two up top; refuse to believe he’s become a bad player overnight, and Stoke is a good opportunity for him to find some form.
  9. This. ******* weird how many people seem desperate to defend him. Did the crime, tried to get out of the time; got called on his bullshit arrogance and is serving his debt to society. Always came over as a self-regarding clown as a manager; shame that seems to have extended to his personal life.
  10. TBF give them some credit; they beat Forest Green... .. based in Nailsworth, population 5,794 - the smallest place to host a league team by population.
  11. May be the night game I’m thinking of in all fairness - it’s a while back and my memory is somewhat hazy... And my one big hope from all of this is it sets a fire under the question of what exactly the EFL is doing when I comes to assessing the credibility of potential owners. It is pretty clear from the detail now out in the open the pair who traded Bury for a pound were both clearly not interested in the long term stability and survival of the club; if this is obvious now, why wasn’t it then? And while I hold no love for the blue few down the road, you look at the situation th
  12. Remember this game if I’m not mistaken - Matt Hill’s debut and Soren Anderson scoring our equaliser, I believe. Unbelievable to think that two decades later Bury (a Division One/Championship team at the time) would be in this situation. The scenario surrounding their demise stinks of the kind of disaster capitalism that many ‘businessmen’ engage in, and for me is a lasting stain on the EFL, as they ultimately proved useless as arbiters of who should be allowed to manage what are community institutions at their heart. A sad, sad day and I hope we don’t see another soon with Bolto
  13. Hope not. Might be in a monitory but never what to play them again.
  14. That’s tragic about Bury - no word on Bolton either and not much time left.
  15. I thought that too, though I did hear it said that in those 14 days they can’t be taken over, and it would be near impossible for them to currently offer proof that they could continue. At this stage it is all proper confusing though, so not really sure of what will take place. If two league one sides fold will play havoc with the league tbh.
