  1. Didn't know about the Steve Brooker story, hopefully that wouldn't happen now and wouldn't be tolerated by the club if it did.
  2. I wouldn't mind promotion behind closed doors but it would be awful if we had to play that way in the premier league. Even though the tv money would be very useful to help the club recover from the current situation.
  3. A mate who supports Huddersfield says Wells can't play on his own up front. That was obviously a few years ago, but if that's still the case then I'd expect Weinmann to partner him and then it will hopefully be Afobe when he returns.
  4. I'm hoping the signing of Henriksen will allow Massengo more freedom - I remember the first time we saw him at Ashton Gate when he ran the length of the pitch and almost scored with a diving header, or away at Derby where he covered the entire pitch for the whole game.
  5. Steve Lansdown has a record of backing mangers as long as the there is progress on the pitch. Last year we finished just outside the playoffs and as success in football is ultimately determined by results and league positions then I'd assume that he'd now expect us to finish a little higher. Earlier in the season we had the caveat of losing Webster and the injuries to key players however, despite that, the team got through that and currently lie in sixth - that's to the credit of LJ and the players. As a squad we're in a stronger position than several months ago though, especially in the much needed forward area and we've also added to our defence So I think playoffs will now be the genuine expectation and anything less would be looked on badly and we'd almost certainly be looking for someone else to take us to the next level if that happened.
  6. Put simply, with the resources he has available LJ now has to make the top six.
  7. one of the worse things about the playoffs is that it gives you a month less than everyone else to plan properly for next season. If you go up a vast amount of higher quality players suddenly become realistic targets but you can't go for them until you are up, by which time a lot of deals will have already been sorted by the clubs you'll be competing against.
  8. no idea, 'a source' which they're yet to confirm. took me by surprise, when they mentioned us I thought it was going to be a Wells' update
  9. Sky Sports News just reported that a deal is now close for Brownhill to Burnley
  10. Brentford missing out on the playoffs is an interesting prediction. At the moment they look more likely to nick an automatic spot
  11. To be fair though I don't the think ticket price is the real problem for away fans, rather the travel cost which can be extortionate and often many times the price of the match ticket.
  12. Agreed, if Reading, who don't have a parachute payment or particularly big fan base, can keep charges to that level then so should every other club
  13. I think it's more like McInnes type football.
  14. Totally agree, and I personally have no real idea if some players are worth the price we paid for them as i simply haven't seen enough of them on a consistent basis to make that judgement.
  15. I thought the whole idea of the current set up was that the rest of the club would be less affected by a managerial change and any progress away from the first team squad would carry on unhindered? It might stop some interest from those who want total control but it's better than going through mass upheaval again I guess.
