  1. Completely agree. Don't worry though. Those same fans on here defending it will suddenly have morals when it gets done to us and we end up dropping points. They'll be on here moaning about cheats and how it needs to be stamped out. At the moment though it's ok, as it's us doing it to other teams.
  2. They seem quite complimentary of the effort you go to with these Love the photo they've got of you working hard on your pre match report too Time to share your spreadsheet analysis of contracts and City's finances to seal the deal.
  3. I think this could be a really good opportunity for him to get his mojo back (ala Paterson). It's a loan so if he does well there, we can either recall him in January and have a new player on form (if we need to and can utilise him in our system/instructions) or sell him come the end of the season and free up the wages. I'm assuming Swansea will be contributing to his salary so that is also a bonus to us at the moment. Let's be honest, with the season so far, it didn't look like he was going to get in to our starting 11 regularly and given his age and wages, he should be starting regular
  4. I'm sure there are more clauses in it to benefit the PL. I doubt they'd be happy to just increase it to 25% (which as you say is huge if your 4% quoted is correct) without some significant benefit to them. They won't lose out on this.
  5. Says a Liverpool fan In all seriousness though, there are lots of questions in the detail about this which will need answering. On the face of this article though, I wouldn't want to be one of the 2 teams relegated when this new system starts and Parachute payments are cancelled. I do like the idea of an annual fee paid to the pyramid although I'm sure there will be some more specific clauses that benefit the PL - nothing in life is free.
  6. Aaaand you've arrived. Classic Otib poster writing off one of our younger players based on this 45 minute performance
  7. Young. Got potential. Getting match experience to develop. He won't be 10/10 every game (or a 7, 8 or 9) otherwise he wouldn't be with us. But this opportunity is a perfect one for him to grasp and develop. If it doesn't work, we move on. We as fans have to learn to give our youth a chance and not write them off so quickly - especially not after a game against a good PL side.
  8. I feel sorry for the clubs and the lengths they have had to go to to prepare implementation of standards which are intended to keep fans safe only for this Government to scuper their plans. Unfortunately, while the efforts Colchester have gone to are commendable, they aren't able to account for the actions of the fans who do attend. While most fans probably will adhere and are careful, there will always be some that just don't care and and don't stick the Colchesters measures putting others at risk. I don't think pushing ahead with plans to allow fans back in is the right thing to d
  9. This is hugely frustrating (and damaging to clubs/sport) but i understand why given the numbers are increasing. I agree it's the right thing to do, however the situation is made harder to accept when there are so many inconsistencies from the governments rules. Unfortunately though we're in the middle of a pandemic and now in a second wave, so it would be crazy to encourage fans back in - even if in smaller numbers. Clubs might be able to demonstrate they can sit fans apart in the stands but unfortunately people aren't robots and some just don't get it and are likely to move around t
  10. Fam definately doesn't start. Performance wise so far, the others are streets ahead and deserve it.
  11. Enjoy reading these Fevs. Good work. I think it'll be a tough one today and I'm a little nervous that midfield injuries to Walsh and Williams plus our new signings still a little behind in match fitness means we could be a little short of what we can expect from City. Also going to be interesting to see how Holden and the coaching team motivate and set the instructions. Still finding their feet competitively so I'm going for a tough 1-1 (and the usual OTIB meltdown after 5 minutes).
  12. Pop over to their forum. There's a thread going on there.
  13. Some on their Forum posting Twitter rumours if you want to look. Edited so not to get anyone in trouble.
  14. Good spot. I thought that when I read it too. No doubt he would have wanted to discuss where Dean sees him fitting in under the new management plans but no doubt that he probably would want a move if he thinks his time here will be a carry on from Lee's approach. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. Such a shame his time hasn't worked out and his best moments (for me) were when he linked up with Afobe who got the best out of him (certainly his confidence seemed sky high).
  15. The Trophy 'value' was rubbish before the Unders were added and it was getting worse. Something had to change. At least now there are some interesting scores. Must be more entertaining to watch than before (if you're not on the receiving end) and definately more entertaining than watching England games!
  16. They truly are a terrible, terrible 'media' outlet.
  17. Muggsy Bogues was a bit short for a Basketball player be he did OK. I suppose it's not only all about hight (not disregarding it), but he may have other skills/qualities like positioning, marking and strength that make up for his lack of height. His pace will certainly help if it means he doesn't take an age to turn like an Oil Tanker!
  18. Its quite interesting how some on here slate people and comments from Fulham fans about Aflie's injury risk because it's not what we want to hear, yet if they were positive comments I suspect they would be praising the Fulham fans!!! Let's just wait and see how this turns our. No doubt Mawson had the ability and a level of skill a few years ago that we need, however if his injury risk is close to the comments from a small number of Fulham fans, then we could regret this big time. Personal I'm going to put my trust in the medical and the scouts and cross my fingers that we haven't don
  19. Sounds like a firm of Solicitors
  20. Welcome Chris....still, not good enough for the home shirt reveal though #whosnext Great signing, vital experience we need. Very pleased with this one. Please don't get injured!
  21. Bet he's never heard this 'joke' before! Why do people think a double signing though? What did I miss?
