  1. This has brought a lump to my throat as my own daughter turns 9 on Monday. I can't begin to imagine the pain he and his family must have gone through, and still must go through now. Huge respect, thoughts and wishes to Dean and the family.
  2. Not gushworthy at all and I would agree. I can't think of a better consistent keeper we've had in a long long time. I think perhaps except Foster/Krul - he is the best keeper in the Championship. Looking back over games, he has already saved us 10+ points in my opinion. Always rated him at Southend, then at Brentford and was personally delighted when he signed. Had one poor (by his standards) season at Brentford and a slightly rocky start with us, but we are now the beneficiaries of it. He's clearly working hard in training and hope he is our keeper for the next 5+ seasons.
  3. Totally agree. The swiss army knife of the side. Is there anything he can't do? Love his passion - always gives 100%. One of our best signings in the last 20 years.
  4. I've kept quiet over the last 6 weeks - looking on from afar whilst all unfolded and now feel able to comment on the situation. Like lots of posters on here, many have yet to express their opinion and the mass outcry does not necessarily reflect all of the fan base. At first, like many I was appalled with what I was seeing, and the silence was deafening. It was a real concern to what was being done to a club that is a large part of my life, like many other who support it. Since then, my stance has softened and changed. The more I read and speak to people in the game - this could tur
  5. If True... That statement is outrageous. Far too many 'I' comments for my like when it is 'our' club and we are fans. No one man is more important than this club. My estimation of Mark Ashton has gone down massively with this awful piece of self-PR. To reveal that LJ cried and pleaded to retain his job is disgraceful. Things like that should be kept in private. Secondly - this man clearly believes in himself. It is borderline narcissistic in its nature. The way he outlines how HE has built the talent from HIS contacts, could not make it any more clear that there was no unit
  6. Totally agree. Sadly some people comment on forums as if they are something entitled. Learning to give a bit of respect would serve these people well. He's done a good job - but his time had run out. If you pause and think.... He's moved us forward. He's developed some young players who we have sold at good profit He's given us some amazing nights and a very special cup run The time was right, he needed to go but he will do well elsewhere. He does however need to change his philosophy and mindset. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over aga
  7. Looking at the Rugby model, things have changed since we appointed LJ in his role. Lansdown has spent big on some rugby players, and has spent big on coaches. First getting Andy Robinson and then Pat Lam. On a side note, I've just finished a Book about Bielsa (which is fascinating). Leeds openly admitted that the cost of the manager was far less impactful than another big signing player. They offered Conte £20 Million to coach them after he got sacked by Chelsea, such is the value of Premier League football to them. If we have been wise (as would appear) in our purchases over th
  8. More interesting in that list is one of the games is a severnside derby between us and Cardiff. Imagine being the ref for that, when you have an allegiance to one side...
  9. That goal away at Sunderland to get a 1-1 draw.... will never forget that. Live on Sky. Battered for 90 mins and Welchy had the game of his life in goal. Sunderland walked the league that year.
  10. Last year was exactly that. Sadly I had already decided this year that I would not take my rwo children under 8. I am thankful it had moved to 8pm on a school night which meant I didn't feel so crappy or have to explain them why were not going to a ground 20 minutes from our house, and that we pass when gping to the Gate every other weekend. Our away support is brilliant at times, but there is a vast minority who are just horrible. At Brentford, Charlton and Birmingham away there were full on fights and verbals between ourselves.
  11. Usually by now - the match report is live on the website and post match interviews up on social media. So far - nothing. That is usually the sign of something else taking place which is bigger than usual. Perhaps wrong, but it feels like something is amiss.
  12. Do you live local? I head back to the Gate often, so if you ever want a lift you are more than welcome.
  13. Could not agree more - for £30 a ticket they are outstanding value for money. I saw the proper Mac a few years ago in Birmingham and left very disappointed. Saw Rumours last year and I would say they were everything I wanted from the actual line-up.
  14. You do know what a forum is don't you... 'a meeting or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged.' Close it down, Robbored say's we can't discuss LJ's approach to the game today.
