  1. Silhouette in the tunnel ? Someone's face on the screen in the lansdown box ? Someone on the touchline ? Looks like staff above the lansdown box too. Could be anything!
  2. The list only paints one half of the picture in terms of recruitment. Its not representative of who or what was available at the market at the time. This season we reportedly beat out some bigger names for the likes of Sessegnon, Mawson and Williams. it also doesn't take into account the ones that got away (not Moteab") that were available but outside of our wage structure or not interested in life down south. Plenty of players on there I disagree with ratings. Fam, Baker, Taylor, Steele, Nikki, Rowe, Kalas all should be green in terms of playing value for what they offered during their t
  3. I dont understand it either. Has done loads off of the pitch to get us where we are now. Can't fault him for the players he has Brought in and the business he has done on getting a return on some of the players has helped keep the club within the financial limits which in my opinion is his main job. He talks like any other business managet. Yes the football is bad at the moment, and has been a theme from last season. Ashton isn't the one who promised 90 goals this season and attacking football. That sits with DH, who will be replaced in the summer regardless of where we finish.
  4. Agree that the government should not bail out any clubs. And I think there is a zero percent chance they will. Some clubs are starting to get desperate and I think that this is the beginning of the end for many which is sad. But life goes on, its only football. I also disagree that players should have to foot the bill. Regardless of the amount they earn. Its up to the leagues to support the clubs. There is a 200m fund from the PL available providing the championship has a wage cap. Problem solved. I dont care if it widens the gap between the championship and the PL.
  5. I see this season as a rebuild season. So top half will be acceptable. Anything else would be a bonus.
  6. Thanks for explaining. I and many others have always thought that some of the plastic fibres do stick above the ground.
  7. Sorry but my understanding of a desso pitch is that some percentage of it is artificial and made from polypropylene fibres to re inforce the grass and the roots ?
  8. Korey 2.0 here we go. I wonder if our pitch has something to do with it ? I remember seeing some stories about artifical pitches potentially causing more injuries although never backed up with data. Would certainly explain the vast amount of injuries we have had over the recent seasons. That or there is a curse.
  9. I'm pretty sure that whatever Derby did they at least stated it in the right year of their finances, unlike Wednesday which is what they were penalised for.
  10. I agree that our academy is not as good as others and has been neglected in favour of other means of development. My original point was that we cannot be expected to compete on all fronts.
  11. And i think you have just proven my statement. For their vast youth network have they developed more players for profit or higher quality players than us ?We had Lloyd kelly, Bobby and Joe Bryan, and we are doing that with supposedly less resources ? I think our academy is good enough for where we are, and although there are others that are casting a wider net are they getting much better results ? SL could have plowed cash into the youth system and got CAT 1 status but would it have helped us as much as first team talent scouting, the stadium or the training facilities. Sometime in the
