  1. So they haven't lied then. I thought you meant they'd said something and then gone back on it to say they never said it. Or promised something but didn't deliver. Still time to get to the PL.
  2. When did they lie? Genuine question
  3. Maybe Williams is being given the Defensive coach role?
  4. Whilst I think it's a good idea, this could have a negative impact on L1/2 teams though in that, as at today, lots of teams could be over the cap limit and therefore subject to sanctions/punishment from the League (haven't read what these are). Clubs will be under increased pressure to reduce the wage bill and Championship clubs could cherry pick the talent at a much reduced price just to encourage lower clubs to reduce their wages. This could therefore impact the finances of player sales for lower league clubs. Albeit something has to change so there might be short term pain for lo
  5. Great idea in principle and I hope it works and starts to change the crazy wage structures in football. If all the Divisions do this it will hopefully start to make clubs more sustainable as businesses.
  6. Website works just fine for me.
  7. Um......you missed 1 particular team
  8. Is anyone else still waiting or am I the last one? I rang supporter services the other day and spoke to a polite chap who confirmed they processed my refund on the 2nd July but I still haven't had it. Told them the card i paid on had been cancelled so needed to give them new details but he couldn't take them. Said the refund would be rejected by the card company and someone from the club would call me. As at the 6th August I'm still waiting. So its taken over a month for any action since they tried to refund me on the 2nd July. Madness.
  9. No one forces you to buy the merch and this isnt a City issue - you're highlighting a football issue - every club does it (not saying that makes it right).
  10. I'm in the same boat and still awaiting a refund so I get it BUT the people who the fans are angry at, e.g. the board, arent the 'Club' which would cease to exist if it didn't have the finances.
  11. Frickin genius. Our club going through times of financial difficulty which no doubt is impacting things at the moment and because you're unhappy that the Head Coach is taking ages to appoint you suggest boycotting one of the remaining income streams that the club relies on. What do you think would happen if everyone followed your master plan? Also, why have we been lied to? Edit: don't take the tone personally (I'm sure you haven't), but some of the posts on here about the current situation and the board is just unbeleivable.
  12. Sounds sensible re the Cook points but sounds like a bit of a mess re Hughton and the clubs stances. Oh dear.
  13. I know what you mean (just trying to play devils advocate) but I think you maybe right.
  14. Or we might get an honest statement explaining the decision. I think the club will be aware of peoples views on how long this has taken and thoughts on Holden so maybe they'll give an open, honest statement. If I was one of the board I would use this as an opportunity to be transparent and get fans onside rather than try to sugar coat it. Fans won't be fooled. Anyway, no ones been appointed yet so who knows what will happen.
  15. Why? Really? You've got a 'fan/s' putting messages on bedsheets about a bloke who hasn't been appointed and didn't do that badly when he was given a chance. ******* tin pot.
  16. I dont think the sport was fully aware though. I honestly think the football authorities were purely driven by greed and money and hoping they could pack the stands asap to try to stop clubs collapsing. Since then I suspect there have been alot more discussions behind closed doors between clubs and authorities (as things have changed) and within the club itself, since the 4th July about what might be happening re next season and beyond. A discussion about COVID or not - its changed football and the changes haven't stopped yet. We as fans cannot think it won't change things at our club re wage
  17. Yeah but there will be others out there who might be available or who's stock rises - if they do well next season, or who knows, perhaps one of these 2 will be available again. Who knows what might happen next season.
  18. Mark Ashton is a Corporate man trying to promote the club. He will always polish a turd (not saying City are that bad).
  19. Na. Even I accept it was time for a change and Holden to be fair to him didnt do badly (even if the other teams were terrible) I still couldn't see Lee getting the results Holden did.
  20. Agree. A bit of honesty would probably help fans accept where we are tight now and help with the understanding. But to be honest do people really need that when they can see what's going on right now? City are just another business that are just as impacted.
  21. When Lee was sacked we didn't know the state of the pandemic thats been reported in the last few weeks, e.g. countries seeing surges. I dont see anything wrong with interviewing people and not commiting while trying to gauge the risk. The budget might not be tight right now (or when they interview) but if the ever increasing likelihood that football will be like this for longer than expected it makes absolute sense to tighten the finances to protect the future.
  22. or the club splashes the cash to please the fans (no gurantee of promotion), fans still can't get in, income continue to take a hit, it gets worse and the club dies anyway.
  23. People saying no ambition etc need to take a breath and look at the bigger picture here. With the state of football finances and the likely hood that fans won't be allowed back in for an unknown period of time, plus other revenue streams significantly hit, this is likely to get alot worse. Holden wouldn't be my first choice to get us promoted but I think we're trying to consolidate things right now, see what happens next season with the state of the finances/economy and then look at it again next year when we have a better idea of the financial picture. At the end of the day this is a bus
