  1. 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.
  2. I see this season as a rebuild season. So top half will be acceptable. Anything else would be a bonus.
  3. Another cock up . First team kit has been leaked on twitter.
  4. Thanks for explaining. I and many others have always thought that some of the plastic fibres do stick above the ground.
  5. 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 ?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Fair point. but what good has it done them ? im sure its a steady source of income. As i said we have looked to improve on all fronts, We have invested money into scouting and analytics and we can identify talented players at any stage in their career , granted its been patchy but long gone are the days of Styvar and Moateb. They have to rely on local players so will invest in youth teams and local scouting. It would be good to see local representation in our squad but like i said we have invested in all fronts and perhaps the academy route is not a viable option when you have the premier leag
  11. All aspects of the club have come a long way under SL including the academy, we have developed talent that othe clubs are willing to pay money for. I dont believe your point on Exeter. Any stats to back that up ? I dont understand some fans demanding the world . We are slowly building, and there will be setbacks. We can't put 100% into every facet of the clubs development its not a video game and even if it was nobody on this forum should be given the controls. My faith is still in SL MA to get this club to the next level.
  12. What a load of crap. Thats 10 minutes my boss won't get back.
  13. Agreed. Communication has been mixed. A lot of unknowns since LJ left which hasn't helped. What will ffp look like in the coming seasons. What managers were available or becoming available at the time ( Cook) . When will the new season start. When will the transfer window be open. Will crowds be allowed and to what level. Obviously the statements such as 'breath of fresh air' have not helped. The club could never come out and say " difficult times are ahead and we are going to go for the financially safe option" it doesnt inspire anyone or attract new players and managers/coaches to the
  14. This coming season is going to bankrupt a fair few clubs and I'm glad we have appointed holden on the cheap and can replace him cheap if it does start going wrong.This coming season and the next will be all about championship survival. I think the club have done everything possible to ensure our long term survival and not gambling everything they have done to jeopardise long term success.
