  1. Sorry meant to quote you @steveybadger Not sure if you watch the rugby on BT Sport but they had a section on it a week or so ago and Healey was talking about how it’s widely known that most clubs do it / have done it - whether it be buying players houses ‘off the books’, ‘employing’ players wives etc. ‘Four years ago, Saracens were among a number of clubs being investigated for salary cap breaches, but no action was taken because there was an acceptance more than a few were at it. The same outcome had been reached in 2010 when those abiding by the cap were found to be in a small minority.‘ https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/sport/blog/2019/nov/07/the-breakdown-saracens-salary-cap-breach-premiership-rugby-union
  2. Yep I completely accept they have cheated but it’s widely accepted they are not the only ones. Doesn’t make it right at all but think they are being scapegoated currently. Will be interesting to see if other clubs are now subjected to scrutiny.
  3. It’s widely accepted that plenty of clubs ‘bend the rules’ when it come to the salary cap and exploit loopholes that are there. Maybe not to the extent of Sarries but still.
  4. Tbf I was being facetious. But the point stands for discussion.
  5. They may well have done but look at all that lovely silverware that they have won! I’d be very surprised if Sarries are the only ones breaking any rules as well.
  6. Think to really get it going again there needs to be that interaction with the away fans. That’s not to say that we can’t make a racket at the other end in isolation but I think the best atmospheres have always been where there is interaction with the away end.
  7. Sing every week but maybe today was a watershed. Here’s hoping
  8. Presume you’re doing your bit to get the atmosphere going?
  9. Was a great crack. Lovely that so many joined in. Old songs that everyone knows. One of the best things about supporting City has always been the amount of songs we have that were original but for whatever reason that’s not been the same recently . Let’s make a concerted effort to keep it going now though. Dooo be doo be dooo!!
  10. But in your last post you said that he did?
  11. So nothing has moved on in the transfer situation in the last 48 hrs? And I must’ve missed where he talked about Saturday and our opponents Barnsley in depth on Tuesday night as well I guess? Nothing major as I said in my original reply but these are the times LJ should be taking responsibility and facing the media imho regardless of any rotas.
  12. After the result on Tuesday and the Nketiah situation I’d personally like to see our man at the helm fronting up to the media and giving us an update on where we currently are - both in terms of going into Saturday and in terms of signings. Not a ‘nothing’ interview from the third man in charge.
  13. It’s another example of that lack of responsibility from him again. Just face the questions when things are a little tricky. Not a big deal in isolation granted but it adds up.
  14. On point as always mate. Hope you’re well.
