  1. I believe this is why SL wanted MA on the EFL board!
  2. If Tetbury Massive is anywhere near the money, Maguire was about £2m and Gray was £4m when Cotts went on holiday. I’m sure he’ll correct me if i’m Inaccurate. £10m was never on the table for Gray....it was £6m to match Burnley. Gayle (after we’d lost out on Gray) was rumoured to be £6m + £3m for promotion (so £6m ). He never wanted to come here. Had we got Gray, then we may not have spent money on Kodjia. Possibly (not probably) broken FFP. We spent a fortune on loans for players like Hamer (has one good game), Moore (good But suffered hernia injury), Baker (good), Simon Cox), Robinson initially, then Elliott Bennett (good) after Fredericks went. In the winter window we signed Gladwin (injured after 1 game), O’Donnell, Tomlin, Matthews initially plus Golbourne and then Odemwingie and Pearce on emergency loans. That is a serious amount of money that would not have been spent to the same level had we got who we wanted initially.
  3. Unless a special exception is made (should BWFC cease to exist), none of these players were out of contract at the end of the window, so would not be allowed to be registered to play this season. No exception was made for Doidge earlier this season, so can’t see any different happening here.
  4. Thanks for sharing TLC. Whether the ref is mic’d or not, he has the players respect because he chats to them like decent human beings, explains his decisions, etc. As a player you know why, you might disagree with it, but he’s given his view point. Our refs in the main speak to players with contempt. They just blow their whistle multiple times and don’t communicate. Last week v Brum, it was obvious the ref wanted to chat to Fam about a foul - Fam knew it, the ref knew it. But rather than shout “Fam, come over here and let’s have a chat” or even go over to him / meet him halfway, he just stood on the spot blowing his whistle. Fam ignored him until he’s created a situation. David Coote is the best ref I've seen in the Champ this year, he’ll be in the Prem next year. Here’s another very good insight to refereeing and especially the constant communication between ref, assistant refs and whatever the bloke who stand by the goals are called. https://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/football/9318159/pierluigi-collina-refereeing-master-class
  5. Swansea away, Swansea home. Some good away performances too, but not necessarily in terms of entertainment.
  6. 11 Fair Play Panel 11.1 The League shall create a Fair Play Panel to: 11.1.1 consider any challenge by a Championship Club, Promoted Championship Club or Relegated Club to a decision of The League in respect of the determination of its Fair Play Result and the consequences thereof, including (by way of example and without limitation): (a) assessment of transactions with Related Party(ies) above or below fair value; (b) the imposition of an Embargo in accordance with the provisions of Rule 6; (c) refusal of permission to register a Player; and 11.1.2 consider any application for Permitted Exceptional Items to be considered in calculating the Fair Play Result. 11.2 The Fair Play Panel shall be made up of any two of the independent directors of the Board of The League (excluding the Chief Executive).
  7. I just hope the decision comes out quickly and well ahead of the next set of fixtures.
  8. Got them at 12-1 earlier this evening. You did well. Not so sure. @Mr Popodopolous Thinks they might be.
  9. I think 12 points now would put a massive load of pressure on them, esoecially with a few of the teams starting to pick up points in the relegation mix. Let’s see.
  10. 73 is my prediction....and goal difference may decide it.
  11. I thought his handling / saving in general was ok (as in average). He mis-punched a high ball in the wind, and made a very good save to his left in the second half. His distribution with his hands was quick and sent Hunt away on the break a couple of times. He sent Paterson away on another occasion with a good, accurate throw. Pato tried to turn on a sixpence and lost it. His kicking was effin’ awful though, apart from one driven pass early on to Kelly. Kicking / distribution is key in today’s game and there was almost a couple of horror moments. His was very good in the FAC v Bolton, when he started, too.
