Re: Heading to the Riverside for Pulisball. Middlesbrough (a) 19/9/18 745pm

Yes they are - he's brain washed into defensive non creative football - which is why it really surprises me that some supporters think he can do absolutely no wrong (IMO he needs to go & see a shrink to try and change his negative, dour mindset - he needs someone to convince him that attacking foot...

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

Presumably we owe the money to Eddies estate. Let’s hope his family are as big Wanderers fans as Eddie was. Another interesting chapter in Ken’s ownership. I wonder what the Davies family think of Ken? Why would they think anything of him? Seems to me that the money was provided by ED in good faith...

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

It gets stranger and stranger. So Ken knew he had the money (or at least the bulk of it) before he put out a statement saying we were entering administration. So why all the drama? All the drama was probably because KA thought administration was a very likely outcome. I suspect he thought he had en...

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

Sure, that's fair. Perhaps it's the deed itself that grates more. Shall we presume that KA'd already factored in that that would be the likely outcome of his frankly astounding "oh well f#ck it, admin it is boys" statement just prior The papers filed at Companies House were dated 7th September - th...

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

BN comments are most often crass but who can argue with this: "So no mention of any gratitude from Anderson to Davies for paying off the bulk of the debt. Even though it was his last act & the official statement thanking Warburton & James came out just after ED had died. He's a classy operator that...

Have we had it officially confirmed yet whether or not the EFL will be deducting the 12 points (ie did we avoid technical administration?)

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

Starting to wonder now..... If administration is triggered staff have to be informed first. Given a deal done would be a quick thing and then an announcement.....the delay isn't filling me with confidence. Equally, if staff had been informed that we were officially in administration, surely word wo...

In what way has he improved anything? The sheer dreariness of watching his sides play football has far more 'tediousness' factor than Coyle's side.

Re: Lets zero in and get these Monkeys off our back. BWFC v Birmingham 8pm 22/8/18

How weird was it watching via the red button too? Slightly jerky computer-graphics feel to the picture quality, no replays and clearly a commentator sat on his own in a Sky studio having to speak for 90 mins from a crib-sheet!!! Still, excellent result, and I can't believe the negativity on here eve...

To play that poorly and get 2 goals and a draw is either the sign of a good side or a fecking lucky one. I'll let you lot decide which you think we are.
feck it - I'll take either, don't care.

4 points from 2 tough openers, I'm fine with that. ...

Trustworthy or not - and none of us actually know either way - he is at the helm of our club. Lets not forget he took on the rol ewhen there was no one else out there willing to do it (or there was, in Deano, and look what happened there...).

Re: Reconstruction time again: the summer 2018 transfer thread

A) Bit back at some fan on twitter. Claiming he is injured and only half fit, Which sounds ominous. I think Ken's 6 figure sum is $100,001 so we won't be getting him. Again, how do you jump to this conclusion? Sunderland have reportedly put in a £600k bid - why then is it so obvious that KA has put...

Re: Reconstruction time again: the summer 2018 transfer thread

Ken's pulled out of the PFA meeting. I think we're about to go "pop". Aldridge is still going. The "line" is that everything is already agreed and Ken needs to finish some deals. We'll see. It's a mediation and you're one half of the problem and don't bother to show up? Ultra rude and arrogant, say...

Re: Who's going down to League One in 2019? Bolton?

I reckon Stoke could be the next Sunderland. Rotherham will struggle and I can see Blackburn finding it tough again. Add into the mix Hull, Reading, Birmingham, Forest - who all need to strengthen, and us going down absolutely isn't a foregone conclusion....
