Re: Two,two the Lillywhite boys.....

Genuine questions: "Man for man" how much worse are we than the rest in this league? Honest answer? I think a lot worse. Look at our squad and where they've come from - most of our signings are gambles from lower leagues who aren't proven at Championship level, has-been journeymen whose best days a...

W.T.F was Josh Magennis doing defending so often first half? I know we have to defend, but....how on earth can he or donaldson be expected to score when in our own box blowing bubbles out of it.
he's the only one who knows how to head a ball, so probably just as well he was....

Re: Two,two the Lillywhite boys.....

Here. I still am not convinced there’s a better realistic alternative out there. All that happening is we’re being found out for what we are - a league 1 side who got lucky to go up and got luckier to stay up. With the players we’ve got this really is our level and anyone who thinks otherwise needs ...

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

Apparently Ken is funding the wages out of his own pocket and he's released a press statement to say as much. I think we're supposed to be grateful, but in't that what Chairmen are supposed to do ie Put money into the club they own??!! In a word, No. Chairmen are supposed to be the leaders of the b...

Re: Den is the menace: Millwall (a), 3pm Sat 24 Nov 2018

Unfortunately, it isn't. KA won't sack him, because then he'd have to splash some wedge, which he won't do. Maybe, as unless you are telling me i've missed the news of a take over from a saudi oil sheik willing to staff millions on us, `i don't think we have the luxury of having enough cash to wast...

Re: A welcome on the hillside......V Swansea at home, Sat 10-11-18 , 3-o'clock.

Yes lets carry on as we are....its clearly working No. Its absolutely not working. I wholeheartedly agree with you on this. But - a change has as much chance of making us worse than it has of making us better, so it needs to be done in a measured way. If there's no one out there willing or able to ...

This 100%....Parkinson moans that he's had no money to spend, then when he gets some money puts the 2 players that he's been allowed to sign for money on the bench....both who are strikers when we can't score a goal for toffee. Sums up Parkinson completely....utterly clueless. Do we know these stri...

Groundhog day....how old are you 10 ?, the buck stops with the manager....Parkinson is a dinosaur let him go & ruin someone else's club Ruin someone else's club?

Give David Lee a crack. We're going down anyways. Maybe this would work. But if we tried it and it failed miserably (think Jimmy P a couple of seasons back...), how long before the same people are on here complaining that Ken got rid of an established manager for a newbie who wasn't up to it and ba...

To put that in perspective - a middle-tier ticket to watch Bayern in the Bundesliga - in the Allianz Arena - is €45 face-value, and also (I think) includes public transport to the game thrown in .....

Re: The Politics Thread

I don't trust any of the current lot to negotiate a good exit. I had no idea how difficult it would be to extract ourselves from some of the legislative processes and personally, I'd never considered the question of the Irish border. Hence why we're in the mess we're in now. I mean - nothing person...

Re: Villainous Intent. V Aston Villa away Friday 02-11-18 7-45.

Parkinson's time WILL NOT BE DUE TO COME TO END under this parsimonious Chairman until he (Parkinson) can be sacked for no dosh outlay from Ken's pockets. We are, unfortunately, stuck with a shit manager, who has assembled a team of shit players, who cannot organise a ball pass between them, becaus...

Re: Villainous Intent. V Aston Villa away Friday 02-11-18 7-45.

Not Parky's fault. he's not on the pitch week after week playing like a 7 year old. Whilst he might be limited as a coach and have his hands tied financially, the players - to a man - need to take responsibility for this. They are better than they are currently playing and need to quickly step up....

Re: Villainous Intent. V Aston Villa away Friday 02-11-18 7-45.

in other news, went on the Allianz Arena tour yesterday in Munich. Guide - a lifelong Bayern fan - asked who i support. When i tell him, he replies "Ah, Kevin Davies...". Wonderful.
