  1. I appreciate there is a point of view that SL's management of the club not not be deemed a success because; a) We are a loss making entity year on year b) we have seen little to no success in footballing terms. However, it's evident to me that the football industry is completely toxic, one in which financial success is nigh on impossible for any but a few, and a club's ambition to become financially prudent is now hopelessly at the mercy of an exponentially increasing wage bubble and player agent culture that is slowly eating the game from the inside out. In terms of Footballing ambition,
  2. I joined OTIB in 2017. Post semi-regularly, yet read a lot of threads and posts (I don't venture into the non-football forum, I wonder if this is what it's like?!). I enjoy deliving into threads of all shapes and sizes, and fully expect there to be questionalble debate, opinions I disagree with, and the occasional oddball spouting nonsense - that's par for the course on a football forum. However I doff my cap, congratulations on creating the most moronic and tragic thread I've read here to date. The absolute STATE of it. I'm almost impressed. I hope everyone enjoyed City's win today!
  3. Wouldn't be a bad shout. The problem is, when do swaps ever really happen? they seem so rare, yet football fans are always calling for them (me included).
  4. Are there any other football forums that get this kind of analysis and detail from a poster? I can't imagine there are. Hats off @Davefevs excellent pre-game insight again
  5. I know what you mean, watching on TV allows far more room for criticism. The camera angle always means you think a switch ball is on, yet when on the terraces you often realise it isn't. Funny old game
  6. Let's not hang anybody. 8 games in, 6th in the league. If we're going to be anything this season it's a team battling for that last play off spot. Keen to see how it goes.
  7. If he manages to get onto the field before the end of the season (unlikely, but possible), I have a feeling he could get an extension. Clearly a favourite of Holden's, so if he manages to come back early, I think he could still be part of plans
  8. From where we were it seemed like an obvious pen. Got to say, the ref was shocking, had no grip of the game at all
  9. First game down the Creek, and what a game! 6 goals, penalties, a skied panenka, two red cards, a player going to hospital, and a pitch invasion from Tony the Scarecrow. Funny game football - our group thought Farm's no.9 was useless at half time, then in the second half he was unplayable (I bet Cray's back two won't want to play him again anytime soon). Farm's no.7 was also very handy, all the looks of a kid who could/should be making it as a pro, but like so many others, ends up in non-league. Will definately be going down again soon. Farmy Army!
  10. Ultiamtely the right decision to sell, but the posters claiming he wasn't up to it, or could 'only cross and nothing else' are far off the mark. He's a huge talent and am pretty sure will play top league football for the rest of his career (albeit I imagine another euro league, where his attributes are probably more suited than English football)
  11. Love threads like this - no chance of anyone shoehorning Corona arguments here. I wasn't even born in 1977 but love football history, no matter how niche. Thanks for posting
  12. Good post. The hysterical Nagy thread aside, I feel Nagy is a useful player to address the needed high energy in the middle, and I'm excited to see Williams in the role, and by many accounts sounds like he could come in and do this job with Tyreeq. Where this leaves Morrell and Walsh, I don't know - it'll be really interesting to see who we end up with and who we let go of by the end of the window (I have a funny feeling it might not be who we think)
  13. Is 'footy' middle class? I know all sorts that call it that
  14. Bit too early to say it's Bobby's zenith. He developed late for us, and whilst he hasn't stood out at Fulham yet, he seems to be liked by Parker, so could still push on (entering his prime - 27 years old).
  15. Thanks for this. I'm certainly interested, and have been thinking of getting down to Manor Farm recently for a game. I wouldn't be turning my nose up at our non-league, grassroots football clubs. They're such a bedrock of our game, and pretty unique to this country (there are very few countries that have such an established, well supported non-league setup).
