  1. Keeper out of position defo but the guy trying a shot from 40 yards which got blocked was the start of it, very poor
  2. 1st yellow on 87 mins crazy! To be fair it’s been a good game in that respect, not much diving or anything like that, good to see
  3. I don’t know what I’m talking about! Haha Italy look very strong I think
  4. Turkey beat and drew with France in qualifiers, im picking a shock here, 2-1 Turkey!
  5. They don’t have to pay £30, no one is forced to buy anything. If can cost £30 to watch a game for 90 minutes, so a T Shirt you can get years of wear out of is pretty reasonable to me
  6. I contacted them a couple of years back as I felt there was no transparency in the lotto and they were opening themselves up a bit, so I suggested they post somewhere what the winning numbers were each week along with the winners names so you can check, and they did bring this in. I’ve only won once in years but that’s not why I’m in it. You can tell I’m an Internal Auditor!
  7. Not sure you can say Conte and ZZ have failed as managers to be fair, even Jose (Spurs aside) has won trolleys at every single club
  8. This is good and bad really, good that the debts gone but bad that yet again we are losing millions. Taking aside COVID, this happens almost every season, and that’s because of players salaries, which is a joke when you look at the performances on the pitch! Anyway modern football I guess!
  9. I remember a few seasons back the owner asked the fans to pay more to watch games so the club could pay for better players, ridiculous! I see from comment above it was away fans getting charged more! Even more ridiculous!
  10. To be fair to GJ, that bunch of League 1 quality players were in the top two of the Championship with Watford (I think?) for most of that season, and just fell short, which says they were pretty good. In the playoff final we just didn’t turn up, Hull were no better really. It’s easy to say signing different players might have resulted in promotion, but as we know from the last few years, sometimes new signings go the other way and we might have missed out completely on the playoffs. In recent years our problem has been selling all of our best players, ripping the heart and soul out of the promotion winning squad, and not adequately replacing them (Bryan, Reid, Ayling, Flint, Freeman, Pack, Smith) There were a few exceptions like Webster who came in but we sold him straight away. With that sort of short term strategy any manager basically has one season to be successful, otherwise your best players will be sold!
  11. 1989/90 season, first game v Rovers which we lost 1-0 I think
  12. Out of interest, what were their season ticket sales in the last normal season I.e. 19/20? Just wondered how this compared?
  13. Shame we don’t get to keep these sort of players for longer than 1-2 seasons as all could/should hit 50 goals if they do! This shows how Fam has either been out injured a fair bit, completely out of form, or a product of our bad football, that he only got to 51 in his time here
  14. I played in Goal because of my asthma (and not because I was fat!). I had the yellow and black striped keeper kit, worn by Keith Welch, which I loved! When I was older I played in Goal for RMC Wick with the Grandfather of Ryley Towler!
  15. His last game before signing was for England at the World Cup, his first game for us he got 3 put past him v Millwall if I remember correctly!
  16. The only statistic that matters is how many points you got at the end of the season compared to the other teams, which I think is probably your point!
  17. I can’t say I’m bothered about any of those players leaving, we needed a clear out and a fresh start, it’s been obvious that somethings not been right in the camp for a few seasons. I’m sure a few more contracted players will also leave as I’m sure NP has advised all if they will feature in his plans or not. This all feels like a new era which is exciting after a largely dull few years!
  18. For me we need to build the team up around a solid spine that will be ever present, so to have a central defence with either Mawson or Baker at it’s heart is the wrong call, we need someone who is going to stay fit
  19. If Rovers fans would have done this we would all be laughing at them for being tinpot, I mean if the execution of the joke would have been better it would have helped, but it’s embarrassing for all concerned I would say
  20. I went to IKEA this afternoon and spotted a range of kids plates called Kalas, I don’t know what this means but seemed appropriate to a thread called Kalas!
