  1. Agree with all your points there in fairness.
  2. If Derby win 3 in a row? They’ve won 2 of their last 14 and lost 4 in a row. Rotherham won 3 in 15. why do you think either are suddenly winning all their games? Also 5 other teams that need to win 1/2 games to go above us Its going to look a lot closer than many would have liked but we aren’t going down
  3. Wells has done the business elsewhere, right up until we bought him Lansburys got out of this league 3 times Kalas is an international CB Nagy also an international. Palmer has ability but lacks any sort of consistency and probably one of the players NP is saying is doing their own thing. So “on paper” they should be half decent, but they aren’t playing that way
  4. It’s very clear from what he’s saying that too many people aren’t pulling their weight and just doing what they want - but he doesn’t have enough fit alternatives to drop them. He’s practically saying it right now that those players will be gone. I trust him for the summer
  5. You can’t judge him with this pile of shit I still think the squad has quality “on paper” they just aren’t interested Whoever let so many players run their contracts down like this at the same time has a lot to answer for. None of them has any interest in BCFC right now because they won’t be here next season. I don’t blame NP yet, though I did expect he’d get a better reaction out of some of them
  6. We’ve been in the top league, football didn’t start in 93. Anyway that was a fantastic 20 page read to catch up. What a night! Swindon next plesse
  7. This time I agree with you, a lot of people will watch it and it will be deemed a success. I wonder what the KO times will be? They wont care about it suiting the UK viewer, they'll want to cater for the US and Asia markets. Will we see midnight games / early morning like PPV boxing events? I listened to the radio some of the day and you're right many people were outraged but then when questioned if they'd walk away from their club and never watch them again they nearly all couldn't say no or answer the question. People don't want it, but the thought of not having their club at all is eve
  8. You're missing the point about relegation. It's not a literal comparison to relegation from the Premier League, it's the equivilent to not qualifying for the Champions League, a very real threat they all face every season as at least 2 of the 6 CANT make it every year and this year 4 of them may miss out. These teams will play in this competition every year regardless of how badly they do in it and the founding members will receive a substantial amount more money than the "invited" clubs each season as the prize money is not evenly distributed.
  9. It's not about relegation, you've taken that too literally. it's about qualification. Arsenal are NINTH in the Prem. Why do they deserve to be in an elite competition just because they have a large fanbase? They don;t even have an abundance of European pedigree. 1 European cup between Chelsea, City, Arsenal and Spurs. Villa have 1 and Forest have 2. American's have a draft system and the better you do the later your pick each year. Agreed. And they will still watch it. Depends what the players do. If Crystal Palace and Everton attract some big names who still want to play
  10. Just been having this debate with mates, almost all of whom support top 6 sides or Prem clubs. I said what's stopping you currently going and watching your "second" team? It's not like many of their prem games are every saturday at 3pm anyway. As I pointed out to a few of them that "follow" Swindon, but they only do so when they are doing well. If they're at the top of league 2 next season they might go watch a couple of games, if they're at the bottom or somehow lingering around the bottom of L1 they'll be nowhere near the county ground. I think the people who go week in week out wi
  11. I did say *some* hypocrisy. They may have worked their way up but the owners walked in with millions of pounds and bought the best players they could - Adam Rooney from Aberdeen on £4k a week in the National League! Made it a completely unlevel playing field, and then add the extra TV coverage they got because of who they were owned by. My point is they didn't care about the effect it had on teams around them. I do agree it's not entirely the same and the ESL has issues on many levels, I just don't like what they did at Salford and it's the same as what many get upset about the likes of V
  12. I dont think that's quite true, they are but they found a loophole. I believe they put membership price ridiculously high and most of them are RB employees/agents which means they effectively have control
  13. There's some emotional responses here, which is understandable but I think a few comments are ignoring some existing issues in our game Is the competition fair as it is? The Prem isn't a closed shop, but the rich get richer and it doesn't filter down properly. Those clubs have real fans too. Hot topic in my football groups, most of them "plastics" if that's what you'd like to call them (not even really sure what that means tbh) and anecdotally not a single person supports this movement and have said they would stop supporting their team. Whether they actuall
  14. Fantastic from a man who earned a living through a league, and now a platform, who tried to do similar with the English game, though I'll forgive him for that. However let's not forget what he has been part of with Salford, throwing money around and buying their way up the pyramid. He's right with what he's said, but can't help but see some hypocrisy in it
