  1. It's pretty much spot on. I stayed after the final whistle and made it clear that I wasn't happy and they'd be better off just leaving the pitch. However, some of them, I feel genuinely sorry for such as Desire who is young, miles away from home, trying his chase their dream but has been thrown into a hopeless situation - probably as a result of some shady agent dealings. He's probably not good enough but is here now anyway but similar to Fage (who looks more promising), our recruitment policy has left them with no senior pros to guide them and this is where I felt the likes of Nepomuceno & Maouche had failed to step up. In retrospect though, it's probably not in their character so they shouldn't be blamed either (However, I'd like to think that Maouche would acknowledge this & volunteer to step aside as captain when someone moer capable is available - as highly unlikely as that is). I honestly think a small handful of the squad have some individual ability but, as a football team, there's very little to suggest that results are about to improve. The complete absence of guile means that they just don't know how to win games and are unlikely to learn. Unfortunately for them, they will always be the focal point for the most important aspect of the club.
  2. You don't have to be based in Moscow to buy Twitter accounts that have been registered for some time.
  3. Left it to the bloke collecting the money to tell everyone, rather than any kind of notice. Just leaves a bad taste.
  4. As shite as it is, isn't it part of the T&Cs around purchasing a season ticket that you can be moved to a different part of the ground? Certainly when buying one for the North Stand initially, we didn't get to actually sit in it but weren't offered a cash alternative.
  5. It's an odd one. You'd think he'd be gone in five minutes but it's going to be difficult to criticise substitutions and team selections when the squad is made up of different shades of shit. I think most will just find him irrelevant but AL/ML will probably sack him after the first ten games (of which we won't win any).
  6. As they have been for a long time under previous regimes which told us a similar amount of nothing. Wasn't quite sure what people were expecting to see. We had another CCJ against us in the last week or so...'only' for £1000 or so but it tells us more than the accounts will.
  7. Just as a helpful recap (because I can't remember) how much does AL owe the OEC (a rumoured figure will do) and what does he/ the club get out of it? Whatever the cost is, is it a figure that will have "negotiated" (😂) between Corney and the other two lads when the stand was opened?
  8. Wasn't this common knowledge anyway as we'd sold it prior to his move to Burnley (for around £40k)?
  9. Out of interest, what is it you would need to see (or expect to be) presented in order to be persuaded that there was interference around his (non) selection?
  10. He had a shocker in the first half at their place, constantly hoofing it out of touch but improved in the second half when we stopped attacking.
  11. My current worry with Barry is that I'd imagine it's be him that thinks the quickest way to appease disgruntled fans is to appoint an ex-player in some coaching/ managerial capacity or spew out a tangerine kit (i.e. he'd be viewed as someone who can tap into to the zeitgeist of whatever period he thinks makes fans happy when, personally, that nonsense makes me want to slam my head into the boardroom table where Richard Jobson signed his contract)
  12. Couldn't agree with that. We'd be top half of the Championship but I doubt we'd get out of it.
  13. Does anyone know how many previous employees are taking us to a tribunal over their removal from these lists? I've read on Twitter that the kit man and Chief Exec have been paid up but don't know how many more are taking their dismissals further. I expect Gerrard would be one & possibly Philliskirk to be another.
  14. Reeks of "We don't need a goalkeeper coach for a couple of months, so why should I pay for one?"
