Re: Time to Declare...

Apparently, Saturday's paggering took us to 15 wins from 72 matches. I'm not sure it's possible to match even that at the moment, but with 20 games left, one win in 5 and a couple of draws thrown in, doesn't get us to 40 points. We're doomed unless something changes. Only 2 things can change in the ...

Re: Reconstruction time again: the summer 2018 transfer thread

I think there are two possibilities Tango. Either the club feel hes never going to be fit enough, or, he has something written into his contract paying him a loyalty bonus if he is still with the club come New Year. I suspect next week will bring a fire sale the like of which we have never seen befo...

Re: Ken Anderson - New Owner (Definitely. For Now ..... )

Michael Chopra and David James both earned huge money for years. It didn't take them long to crash and burn. Given that the average footballer isn't the brightest bulb in the box, I can imagine there's one or two (If not more) of our squad starting to panic just a little bit. If the wages aren't pai...

Re: Ken Anderson - New Owner (Definitely. For Now ..... )

A manager who still doesn't know what his best 11 is and can't motivate the 11 he does pick, a Chairman who seemingly lies to the fans (Claiming to have proof of funds in place from the bidding parties in October, then claims in November that he has seen no such thing) and fails to pay wages on time...

Re: Should Phil Parkinson be sacked?

We're not doing the basics and that's down to the manager. We don't keep our shape when not in possession and we're too pedestrian going forward with the ball. We had just 10 minutes at the start of the second half when we moved the ball quickly enough. How many of our passes went backwards today - ...

Re: Ken Anderson - New Owner (Definitely. For Now ..... )

Ken's hoping supporters will suspend their critical reasoning when it comes to buying tickets and act like fans, rather than consumers. As a product, what he's offering at the moment is nothing short of sh*te. He's offering nothing in terms of reassuring us that The Tinkerman will ever pick a settle...

Re: Out of the Forest and up to Le Moors.. Notts Forest Home, Wed, 24th Oct 8-0 .

The Tinkerman strikes again. PP clearly has no idea what his best side is and the pre match comments suggest we start matches looking to be unadventurous and play safe. It's not working. The pressure will really be on PP if we get less than 3 points at weekend, but I'm not sure we could afford to sa...

Re: Out of the Forest and up to Le Moors.. Notts Forest Home, Wed, 24th Oct 8-0 .

I'm considering a half ST and the next few performances will make be making that decision for me. £27 for a ticket in the North Lower is still too much for a midweek Championship match and on that basis, I'll be listening to the wireless. I can only see something of a drubbing tonight and if we're o...

Re: New York, New York...Rotherham away, 20-10-18. 3'0 Clock.

I'm actually very up beat about this one, for some unknown reason. I'm calling it 1-3 to us and I'm going to be very disappointed if Marc Iles' first question to PP afterwards isn't,

"So Phil, you've come straight from the dressing room, are you able to confirm the rumours surrounding josh Magennis"?

Re: Ken Anderson - New Owner (Definitely. For Now ..... )

So, on the one hand, Ken expects me to spend my hard earned money on an exhorbitant ticket, whilst on the other hand slipping money into his back pocket from the club. 1. I'm not about to pay more than £25 for a football ticket. 2. If it's £25 but I then have to join a 1 hour, 300 meter queue before...

And another thing.......£3.10 for a fecking pie??! I had our kid's ST today, but cheapest ticket for the match today was £28 I think. In order to pick it up, Ken is now expecting me to queue for over an hour. Given that with fuel, parking, a pint and a butty, I'd have no change from 50 quid, he's no...

Re: MATCH THREAD: Into the great unknown. Bristol City (H) -11th Aug, 2018

PP got it badly wrong today for me. First half we were way too pedestrian and allowed them to regroup in front of us on the rare occasions we had possession. If you're going to play a holding front man, your supporting midfielders have to get beyond him. No matter how hard Maggenis worked, no one ev...

A cagey 1-1 draw for me. Let's be honest, anything better than 2 points from the first 11 matches is an improvement!

Re: Reconstruction time again: the summer 2018 transfer thread

Neither Vela nor Ameobi will ever play in the Premier League, barring a Madine like transfer fluke. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that none of our current crop (To be fair, I haven't see Oztumer yet) will ever play higher than the level they are at right now. That's quite a sad and startling judg...
