Re: Championship 2017/18: the bookies' view

Early prices for 2019/20 going up. We're 100/1, along with Bury, to win the title. 20/1 to be promoted. Sunderland favs at 9/2, followed by Ipswich (13/2), Pompey (8/1) and Rotherham (10/1). We're 20/1 to get promotion, 2/1 2nd favs to be relegated (Bury odds-on, Accrington, Gills and Wimbledon behi...

Re: Will we tame the wild Rovers? Blackburn (A), 3pm, 22/04/19

Unless he's officially given up or doesn't actually want to go on, it would be in PP's interests of keeping his job to flood the 11 with youngsters (well, three or four) and get some fluke halcyon performance out of them in the last three games to give Bassini some inkling that there's more to him t...

Re: Bolton Under 23's the Champs.

The right priorities for next season. Fingers crossed... Bolton plan to sit down with Luca Connell, his agent and family in an attempt to pin the teenager down to a new contract. Connell, who turns 18 on Saturday, has progressed through the Wanderers academy to make 11 appearances at first-team leve...

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

Doidge situation is a shambles and revealing of both current ownership practice and cashflow situation, but does it actually indicate exactly how close we are to the brink? Presumably it's Ken's choice on whether we go into admin or not? When does choice become not a choice? Best-case scenario from...

Nixon c.3.30pm:
Bolton. Blumarble are not the only debtors being sorted out today. Very interesting calls and deals being struck. Something bigger going on here.
Hope that Ken may yet get fecit?

Iles "Time to cross stuff once again, folks... " Ken stalling again? I imagine him there trying to get them to sign a contract which has "Doidge" crossed out and "BluMarble" written above it, and Eddie with a hand on his shoulder trying to pull him away. "No, Eddie, no! They get the additional £300...

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

Would have thought it's ED. Warburton the next likely. Definitely preferable to BM. That would be the "good" news. If we somehow get through this, I don't even want to begin to imagine how Ken might start talking his way out of this one. He can do one. What we save on Lee's consultancy fees can go t...

Per an Isles story this morning, former players still haven't been paid and PFA have been called in.

Re: What gives? The Invincibles (old) v The Invincibles (away). Preston (a) 1/9/18 3pm

Interesting. I like us defensively. Agree with Taylor coming back in - #StrongAndStable. Likewise O'Neil has shown he can be a solid presence with Lowe. Noone could probably feel peeved not to be getting a start, but Wildy's marauding, dribbling way will hopefully give PNE something to think about. ...

Re: Reconstruction time again: the summer 2018 transfer thread

^ Yes. This. Absolutely. A good point made via MI's blog just now, tho: Wyke was around the £1m mark. No way PP had Doidge over him, Shirley, so what's happened? Is £1m way off the mark? Is Ken getting this on terms he can wriggle out of? Is cashflow this bad he simply didn't have the money this sum...

Re: Reconstruction time again: the summer 2018 transfer thread

Seems like one is indeed coming in, tho. Have double checked and Obasi's signed for Elfsborg, so it's not going to be Plan H, we know that much anyway.
