  1. Ball is very lively on a hard pitch with both sides struggling to get it under control. Is Gareth Ainsworth wearing suede shoes?
  2. If the ESL folds the Despicable 6 must not be allowed to walk away Scot free. The dumb asses may have totally miscalculated public opinion, especially among their own fan base, but their intent was clear and don't be surprised if they come up with some other half assed scheme in a couple of years.
  3. Wicked thoughts but couldn't the football authorities in tandem with the Government and Local Authorities find a way of closing the stadiums of the big 6 at the last minute for each game night. Last minute because I'd like to see the greedy clubs go to the expense of travel and accommodation before the game was 'postponed'. Perhaps, for example, inadequate police resources to ensure safety of players and club officials from public protests
  4. I'd love to see the football authorities and the Government take draconian actions against the 6 but I doubt current rules and constitutions allow it. Ideally: * Expelled from the Premier league with immediate effect and all their records for 20/21 expunged * No relegation from the Premier League this season and promote 4 clubs from the Championship for an 18 team Premier League next year. * Normal relegation and promotion further down the EFL leaving 20 clubs in the Championship and 24 clubs in L1 and L2. * Cancellation of this year's League Cup * Expulsion of Chels
  5. I totally agree this I tent by the 12 is despicable, shows no regard whatsoever for their fan bases and support the likely inevitable sanctions, especially the removal of players for national selection. That said there is some feeling that sanctions against players is somewhat unfair as this proposal is not being driven by them but by their greedy, and almost exclusively foreign owners. What I'd really like to see are sanctions against any media outlet who cover the league.
  6. We rode our luck at times and conceded another sloppy goal from a set piece but following Lansbury's sending off we battled really well and we're rewarded with a deserved equaliser. Terrific strike from Bakinson who alongside Massengo did a sterling job in midfield. Talking of Massengo another here there and everywhere performance. He's starting to add consistency to his performances now, and if he could add a few goals he'll have me thinking about a young Gerry Gow. He certainly ain't no pushover now.
  7. The FA Youth Cup presents a very static opponent for Sheffield United who should advance quite easily. Bristol City u18s will hopefully provide stiffer opposition however.
  8. I find myself fairly unfazed about the Mark Ashton situation. I never saw him as a pantomime villain and certainly didn't subscribe to the views of the many conspiracy theorists on here, some of whom no doubt believe everything written in a Dan Brown book, that he was responsible for all the ills befalling City. However I think his tenure as City's CEO could be described as patchy at best. On the plus side I think he has some organisational skills and he achieved some remarkable prices for the sales of Webster, Kelly etc. But on the negative side the recruitment could rank as 5/10 at best and
  9. Don't tell me you can't be in 2 places at once as Massengo showed you can be in 6 places at once. MoM by an absolute mile as we stopped the rot at home.
  10. Presuming he goes is his parting gift that he recruited his own successor!
  11. I'm more than happy for Jon Lansdown remaining low key. When a football chairman starts mouthing off and becomes more prominent than the players and manager it's a sure sign that the club is in trouble.
  12. It was really bad but can't go down as our worse. Dyche and Watts playing alongside each other was a, disaster every week.
  13. That was bloody awful!! Commentator on Robins TV kept saying the game was fizzing out, but in order for that to happen didn't we need to light the sparkler in the first place? Positives: Massengo industry, Semenyo posed some small threat whilst on the pitch, more minutes for Pearson and a debut for Conway, er that's it...
  14. They're not so much owned by bet365 rather that Denise Coates is the founder, majority shareholder and CEO of bet365.
  15. Excellent post although Sessegnon is not ours. Is he out of contract at Fulham? Of the other players out of contract in addition to Walsh I'd look to keep Weimann and possibly Lansbury who might benefit from a preseason with us if Pearson stays. GIlmartin I suspect will end up in a coaching role either here or elsewhere. Due to the effects of Covid on football finances across the leagues I expect more than ever that the ability to move players on will dictate arrivals. As to my knowledge FFP has not been suspended money is likely to be very tight. While there may be one or two new signin
