  1. You'd need to be under 5ft in height for that to be the case.
  2. I'm not so sure, there's no way the clubs been able to afford a laminater.
  3. I agree with the majority of your comments. Definitely need a new manager, Dino has done nothing to make me think he is the man to take us forward. Try to get Piergianni permanent (seems surplus to requirements at Salford), he has really impressed me since his arrival. Smith would be great, but I doubt we could get him for nowt, so that might be a none starter. Dearnley was certainly looking good prior to his injury so I would keep him. Wheater, I'd keep to play alongside Piergianni in the centre of defence. Rowe has looked a definite improvement on what we already have up front since he arrived. McCann, I would keep. Maouche, Missilou, Nepo and Sylla are all very capable at League 2 level, but I'm not convinced they are good enough between them to have us challenging for promotion. I would be looking for improvements if they can be found probably via loans. We certainly need to keep the better players in the current squad, but need significant improvements on the poorer players in order to sustain a promotion challenge. Most of all I'd take a new owner who has some money and the best interests of the club at heart, and is mentally stable.
  4. I think the first thing we need is a new owner, and then we can take it from there.
  5. I agree, it was instinctive and probably what most players would have done.
  6. I'm not sure about fixing, but he's as bad a keeper as I've seen since Dean Brill.
  7. I presume he said "we're shit and fans need to accept that", if his comments are deemed closer to reality than usual.
  8. David Shaw scored the first goal I ever saw at BP,, in my first ever game, aged 9 in March 1973, in a 1-0 win over Swansea. I still remember the goal vividly, as it was struck from the edge of the box, and hit the underside of the crossbar before bouncing down over the line. He had ran on to a ball over the top, and his electric pace got him their well ahead of the trailing defenders.
  9. I thought Dino came across really well in the podcast, clearly doing his best in what are very difficult circumstances.
  10. You'd hope that at some stage we will be so low that we can't get any lower, unfortunately it seems we are not there yet. 🤡
