Re: Phil Parkinson

Yep pleased with this I was thinking the other day how after Megson we'd had 3 in-a-row which were sorted quickly and seen as ambitious moves at the time - luring Coyle and Freedman from clubs who never expected to lose them, and Lennon was seen as about the best qualified around too. How it turns o...

Adkins and Evans seems like two diametrically opposed characters..

Re: Brexit or Britin

What about the 2m+ bits residing elsewhere in the EU. Presumably a fair proportion of them will end up having to return due to (I presume) reciprocal health care no longer a thing and other stuff. No worries if we swap all the young Spaniards who come here to work with our 1m+ retirees on the Costa...

Re: Brexit or Britin

Depressing stuff from both camps really, but to me it comes down to if you believe some notable economic sacrifice is worth making to bring down immigration.

Personally I don't give a monkeys about immigration so the answer is clear

Re: The Politics Thread

Don't know why the Government has such poor ministers at health and education when the whole premise is that the Tories' superior [to Labour] economic management means these two areas are relatively protected while every other department is suffering from 25% cuts to budgets. We have stories on the ...

Re: For new signings, ask the man from the Pru

Holdsworth on Holding, per BN : It has to be a deal that suits the football club and not anyone else. If it isn’t right we will not do it. He is going to play in the Premier League all day long. He will be a top player and I think he could go on to be an international. He has got representatives wh...

Re: BW Supporters Trust

Had a quick scan of the in-running commentary from last night - between the lines it sounded like they're preparing to be in place for when the next crisis happens in League Two. Until then not much they can or can envisage achieving.

Re: The Debt.

It won't go far if we believe those reports of £2m outstanding tax bill, £2m to Brett Warburton, whatever it was to Nucleus finance, cost of an administrator and a standard £1m/month loss!

At least he'll get games rather than sitting in, say, Everton's u21s? Really is depressing that we've been waiting for someone to come through with the talent and potential of Clough for a years and years and he's being sold early to pay a tax bill and/or appoint an administrator. Maybe we'll see hi...

Please don't let them win it. I've quite happily spent the last few years putting them with City and Chelsea in the group of "Not DMB/Scousers" who I wouldn't mind winning it, safe in the knowledge they wouldn't actually win it. That said, 2 years ago, I said the risk of the Scousers winning it was...

Re: A happy No Non Sense new year! - Huddersfield (H) 02/01/

When I look at Vela and any criticism I wonder perhaps he suffers from not having an obvious attacking strength for a midfielder - he's not likely to magic up a defence splitting pass or score goals from midfield, nor is he a proper 'anchor' player, but he is likely to get about the pitch, put press...

I was reading something on this earlier.

Re: A happy No Non Sense new year! - Huddersfield (H) 02/01/

I'm sick of Madine. Absolutely useless. Maybe we should go for broke and try a Stokealona system with Clough as the focal point flanked by Silva and Feeney. It can't be worse than Gary fecking Madine and the current system. Lennon can feck off too. We've had a string of charlatan managers since Sam...

Re: How long would it take to collect £10-15k in buckets?

Town took 1,962 supporters to last season’s game at Bolton, who won 1-0 in front of an official attendance of 15,924. In 2013-14, when Town won 1-0, the figures were 1,365 and 15,452. http://www.examiner.co.uk/sport/football/news/huddersfield-town-being-limited-2200-10670386" onclick="window.open(t...

Literally forgotten what that felt like as it was my first win since March! March! In the cold light of today, Blackburn probably the worst team to visit all season?
