  1. Used AG2 many times, as others have said its a great service, can take up to half an hour to get to AG if the traffic is bad but usually less than that. Don't worry too much about the timetable, they start at a set time (I think 12:25) but then have 2 or 3 buses just constantly shuttling back and forwards when they are full, so timings quickly get out of sync. Just turn up when you want and jump on the next bus. I always seem to get there as a bus is nearly full and it goes without me, but the next one is either sat behind or a few minutes away so not an issue.
  2. First question is odd - "When did you become a fan of the Championship?" as if we are fans of the league and then picked a team to support within it! I think i put something to the effect that i became a fan when we got promoted into the league. Easy survey to complete though.
  3. I've always assumed every player knows the ball will be in the air for 2-3 seconds and will plan out where they need to be, so they will all start somewhere else and have that 2-3 seconds to make their movement. The arm raise lets the players know to start that move.
  4. Market Value is one thing, but even though Fam cost a lot I think we've got our moneys worth out of him, so even if he went at a loss I wouldn't necessarily see that as money wasted by any means. Top goalscorer for three seasons is it, earned us a lot of points and we've probably had his best years. If he went on a free and earned big money somewhere I wouldn't begrudge him that and would thank him for the last few seasons. He's been an absolute pro, through some tough times and seems a genuinely nice guy to boot. Best of luck to him I say.
  5. Maybe he wanted to for his own personal reasons? The story is easily searchable, he said it in an interview with a journalist in 2007 that he was being tutored.
  6. Worth noting that Rooney has no coaching badges and a potential barrier to him achieving them may be his rumored reading age. It is well known he failed to pass any GCSE's and attempted to retake Maths and English at Man Utd with the help of an expensive tutor, only to fail again. I want to make clear this isn't intended in any way to mock the guy, he has achieved far more than many of us ever will, but you have to wonder about his ability to be a full time Championship club manager given these facts.
  7. I can't help feeling that if this comes to pass, we will end up in a few years in a group of 10-12 clubs with a squad of exactly 25 players all on exactly £720k p.a. each, in which case I don't see how that benefits us at all.
  8. Yes, he really came onto the scene after his goal against Rovers. That was ages before the heart surgery, and most fans had nothing but positive things to say about him. If he did say these things, then they are clearly not true.
  9. i think thats peoples issue, it shouldnt be good enough for a starting place, but all too often he has been selected when better options were available, and then he's gone on to have a poor game.
  10. QPR's kit last season was hopeless for seeing names/numbers on the back. Gold letters and numbers on a blue and white striped background - how did that ever pass muster?
  11. Blackpool away for me too but a different one to the ones above. It finished 0-0, peeing down with rain and Mickey Bell missed a last minute pen, just about the only action in the whole game.
  12. The Wigan squad finished 13th last season - points deduction and relegation doesn't change that. they were a good side and Williams a key part of that.
  13. I haven't seen anyone saying they think we'll be in the playoffs, its more about what is an acceptable finishing position given our world class recruitment campaign with 100+ candidates, multi-stage sifting process, and rigorous interviewing resulting in the best possible human being appointed. Do i expect us to finish top 6? No, I expect the above to be exposed as the absolute BS it obviously is.
  14. If Hughton had been appointed we'd be expecting top 6, so the fact we've appointed Holden over him, means I expect Holden to be held to the same standard. If we're not doing that then Ashton and Co need to be honest about their expectations for next season.
  15. Conversations like this always remind me of the game where the normally fairly ordinary Phil Jevons had the game of his life and just looked like an absolute world beater. I think it was possibly against Gillingham and he scored a first half hat-trick? Don't remember another performance that was so out of character.
