  1. Really interesting that. Interesting McInnes allegedly had £3.5m to spend on a striker and a centre back. Davies turns up, expecting another CB to come in, and see's Sam Baldock . He makes a point that attacking-wise, we were pretty decent, and I don't think we realised what we had at the time in himself and Baldock, with Bolasie and Adomah on the wings. But with our defence at the time (Fontaine, Nyatanga, Foster, Wilson, etc) we were lacking hugely.
  2. Can't seem to find the McInnes bit. Am I being stupid? Edit: On about 40:30 for me.
  3. Haha for god's sake... Literally everyone else would put the sags and Shrewsbury in a similar mould size-wise nowadays.
  4. Total guesswork, but it wouldn't surprise me if that's the best part of £150k per week gone from the wage bill. Hopefully lots of room for manoeuvre.
  5. No way it's as high as 8,000, not with the amount of terracing that it has. Adding up their stands seats on various sites, it comes to around 2,800. Football Manager (which is relatively reliable) has it as 2,700. I'd imagine 3,500 seats at an absolute maximum to be honest, less than our entire smallest stand.
  6. No you're absolutely right, but the point still stands. Why have it filled with locals when you could have it in England and have actual fans here? Usually actual fans can get across Europe but it's not looking likely.
  7. But it's just the 2 best sides from a European competition? You're telling me Bayern v Dortmund and Real v Atletico didn't have an interesting back story to it? And on that - we're in the middle of a pandemic and expected to fly teams (and fans?) out to Turkey out to the final. Surely, just this once, they should just move it back to Wembley? It would make so much more sense.
  8. Of course you are, I didn't mean to suggest otherwise . But if there is a better way of doing it, then by all means they could or should trial it, but it's been this way for years with no question, probably because there's no other easy solution. And I'm sure they leave it this way to restore a bit of excitement as well. Luck theoretically should balance out on this over a career.
  9. How would that work? If a lap time is 1:20, and a few cars are 1:19 behind, they would be starting with a few cars coming full blast directly behind them, which is about as dangerous a situation as you could get. There's a reason this is the way it's done. And you can complain about Hamilton getting luck all you like, but this happens to drivers every time there is a red flag, why is it only an issue now? Pierre Gasly got incredibly lucky by timing his pit just before Leclerc crashed at Monza last year, and won the race. It's part of the sport and something the teams probably factor
  10. Yes but when they're racing as usual, the impact of lapped cars isn't so bad - there is a marginal impact perhaps for half a lap or so but for the most part it's fine. If they restarted exactly as positioned on track, even from a rolling start, it is far messier. It's always been the way to be fair, under safety car conditions cars can overtake the SC and unlap themselves, so the restart should be no different. It's not fair no, but it's the easiest remedy, short of having cars restart on differing parts of the circuit or something daft like that. Many parts of the sport aren't as fair as
  11. I can see why people think so but it's always been the rule, and it does make sense. Imagine a restart with a mixed pack, the confusion of some cars being blue flagged and some cars genuinely racing is a recipe for a ruined race.
  12. I didn't mean JP Morgan themselves, I meant the clubs must be confident or already have a deal lined up.
  13. JP Morgan allegedly - they must be either extremely confident in their ability to get a monster TV deal, or possibly even have one lined up. I'm not sure how BT and Sky Sports would position themselves here, they're already in a good place and will want to avoid their product being devalued - perhaps this is a pathway for Amazon or someone like that to finally get fully in on this. Another interesting point, and which shows just how much this stinks, is their income distribution model. The founder clubs will receive enormous payments of up to £350m each, all while allegedly imposing a sal
  14. The state of some of this Most of the blokes who 'brag' about how hot their latest was or how many they've been with are the types who quite clearly don't get any anyway Do feel for Rhodri though, that would be ****ing awful. Especially as you hear more and more afterwards, terrible.
  15. From what I've seen of him, and from what we've heard about him from Everton and Coventry fans, he could quite literally be the missing piece in the midfield that we've been lacking for so many years. If he wasn't one of our players and had just been seen tearing up League One we'd all be calling for Pearson to sign him. We now have the luxury of him being our own player and we're having doubts? His injury record is awful, but you can apply to that to half of the squad this season. With the upside potential here, he's absolutely worth a punt for another year or two imo.
