  1. Was taken ill at the Barnsley game it seems . Sincerely hope he makes a swift and full recovery .
  2. Not sure about anyone else , but I’ve not yet received my season card for this season anyhow . Anyone know if they’ve actually been sent out ?
  3. We seem to have gone for a 3,1,6 formation with the 3 at the back lumping it to the 6 at the front for the 10% of the game that we actually get the ball !
  4. Our last game was only 4 weeks ago and we’ve been back training for the last 2 weeks. Coventry haven’t kicked a ball since March ! Don’t think we’ll be the ones undercooked to be honest
  5. The more I consider it , the more I think this appointment is just about survival . Fans may not be allowed in for the whole season in reality and at the end of that , God knows how many EFL clubs will be gone forever . We’re not in the Prem So Gate money is critical . It’s also the first ever rolling contract I can recall at The Gate . This appointment is I think , temporary until we’re through the other side and will see who’s left . Sounds like Armageddon I know but who knows what the next 12 months hold ?
  6. That’s what I thought but not even a mention of it !
  7. At what point did I say that I would request a refund instead of a stream ? My point was that many would and that given the financial position right now , that could and arguably should be a consideration when deciding who the next manager will be .
  8. Totally agree . There are wider issues particularly if faced with same options Re season tickets (refund/stream ) as this term. Appoint someone who will give the fans a bit of hope that we can take that next step and more will stream . Appoint Holden then just sit back and await the refunds instead .
  9. Interesting that fans returning in October ( in moderation) has been suggested as a possibility . Not sure what anyone else thinks but when it comes to making that decision whether to attend or not , I honestly don’t know how I’ll feel ( despite having already paid for my st next year )
  10. Really hoping this gets confirmed today . Would also love to perhaps see Glen Murray in a player/coach role join him . We could really do with a Wilbs mark 2 !!
  11. Totally agree . O’Driscoll, GJ, Mcinnes, Coppel and Cotts were not “Yes” men in any way so I think the thought that we only appoint “yes” men is well wide of the mark to be honest .
  12. Would be a travesty for Brentford to end up in the play off and lose to Cardiff 11 points behind them and a GD swing of -36 on Brentford . My Son just came up with a great shout . 1 extra point awarded at the end of the season for each block of +10 GD you end up on . Much like Rugby’s bonus points for try’s scored . At plus 43 The Bees would get 4 extra points to award their attacking football compared to WBA’s 3 seeing the Bees go up ! Would be a great way to reward attacking football and would stop sides killing the game when 2-0 up for example . Won’t happen but would be a great idea in my
  13. Can you imagine what we’d have achieved this season with Tinnion at his best in the centre of our midfield !!!! Just that thought confirms to me we are missing just the one key player !
  14. My concern is this : From Alan Dicks through to Lee Johnson . In the past 45 years we have NEVER appointed a single Manager with experience of managing at a higher level than the league in which we’re in at the time . That may go some way to explaining why we’ve been out of the top flight for 40 years. As a club we have nurtured a culture of mediocrity and we mustn’t repeat the same mistake again .
  15. Ashton can shove my season card where the sun don’t shine if he appoints his mate who has taken a previously up and coming side to 17th in League 1! Surely there can’t be any truth in this ?
  16. Never been a fan of Fammy but this season , especially off the bench he has made us better every time . I really hope we hold onto him and I never thought I’d hear myself say that
  17. Gregor indicated there would be quite a cull in his piece yesterday . I don’t think any of the following will be with us next season personally :( inc loans ending obviously) Maenpaa, Baker, Benkovic, Vyner, Korey, Eliasson, O’Dowda, Afobe, Watkins, Morrell, Williams, Fammy .
  18. Reckon we should hold fire to see if Pep leaves Man City at the end of the season . Let’s see how good he really is
  19. Erm ..... Steve McLaren yesterday turned down Dundee Utd as the job “came at the wrong time “ !!!! In other words , he’s had a better offer Watch this space folks .

    If the season starts behind closed doors the club will have to surely offer the same options we’ve just been given ! If LJ is still there , there will be a deluge of refund requests from those who didn’t opt for that this time round !!
  21. Highly likely that next season will be behind closed doors . That means that the 12000 season cards already bought may be subject to the same refund/ Robins Tv option as this year . If LJ doesn’t go , the number of those demanding a refund could be massive ! Surely SL will see that as a distinct possibility and act now ?
  22. So if you’ve got one adult ticket and one under 22 in the same household then opt 1 for the under 22 and a refund for the adult will still only get you a refund based on the u-22 ticket ? If we both go for a refund that could then go towards the cost of paying £10 to watch each game ? (£90 plus whatever could potentially be charged to view play offs )
  23. Stop talking such bloody sense !! It’s clearly been made complicated so that as many fans as possible throw their arms in the air and say “sod it” and just let it default to option 1 for an easy life !
  24. So if someone could verify my understanding that would be really helpful . I have a normal adult sc plus my son has an under 22 . Whilst acknowledging that I would forego my living legend status , I could ask for a refund on my own card and my son could opt for opt 1 . He would still receive his Robins Tv code and the season cards we’ve already bought and paid for for next season are unaffected ? However does the fact that my sons card is u-22 still count as an “ adult” card in the club’s eyes or as non adult and he therefore wouldn’t get the tv access ?
  25. My absolute favourite player as a kid . I remember standing right at the front in the East End on a stool so I could see over the wall ! Norman would come onto the pitch like a charging Rhino every game and would sprint down the touchline right in front of the enclosure as it was then . RIP Norman , you were the player that ignited my passion for the mighty Reds aged 10 and a bit . Absolute legend .
