    I think he went 3 at the back rather than going defensive. But I'm not there, so I don't know.

    I wonder if FB is trying to save Jose for Tuesday?

    And Yeovil had 25 shots, 12 of them on target. Daniel from Denmark could be in for a busy night on Tuesday if we don't close them down a bit sharpish.

    I know. It was my poor attempt at humour, not to contradict you.

    He's actually quite a bit smaller than the rest. Sorry.

    That's scary, given where those two ended up last season.

    The game I was thinking of was definitely on a Saturday against Wigan. Maybe it was a different ref.

    Joseph is the one who replied to a couple of emails I sent them last season. He didn't really address the issues I raised and, eventually, some other geezer took over until they decided to not reply at all. You really would think they'd have it cracked by now.

    I'd forgotten all about that useless prick. Thanks for reminding me. Wasn't it Clattenberg who sent off MiniShez against the Plastics at BP, when their players were telling him it wasn't a foul? Correct me if I'm wrong; the memory could be going.

    As I've said elsewhere, I'm certain they can't due to employee confidentiality. They could get taken to the cleaners if it prejudices any further developments.

    Although he's one of the poorest referees around, just be grateful it's not Trevor Kettle.

    2. Ok, I'll go with that as I haven't yet had the chance to see FB's presser, but "a couple" could be an expression of speech, it could be very accurate 3 & 4. There'd been very mixed feelings about MK's article. Some believe all of it, some believe some of it, some believe none of it. I do believe there are elements of truth in there, but I also believe that the truth has, in places, been massaged. However, I still don't see AL, or anyone else, agreeing a (lucrative?) contact at £x per week for the next two and a half years and then suspend said player to save his wages, but still have to pay them whilst he's in the reserves. It's bonkers. For me, I think it's been a serious misdemeanor of some sort and employee confidentiality is preventing anyone saying any more. In my working life, I had to deal with many disciplinary issues concerning employees, and I know from experience that they have to be handled 100% by the book or you leave yourself wide open. We'll find out eventually, I imagine, but right now, it's not our place to know.

    Please tell me this, someone. How does anyone know that AL is freezing Byrne out to save his wages? Has someone seen it in writing, perchance? And who (Lemsagam) would agree a long term contract with a player and then decide not to play him just to save the wage you've already agreed upon? Just doesn't add up. And how about "he's only broken two club rules" I think someone said? How do you know? Have you been told by FB, AL or JB themselves? How do you know he's on £6k a week? Has anyone seen his contract? Or was it once suggested and it's now gone beyond folk lore? How do you know that Maouche is on £4k a week? Same scenario as Byrne's wages which, by the way, we will still be paying, so that again kills the idea that he's frozen out to save the wage. If anyone has concrete, confirmed, sighted proof of all this, fine. I'll accept it. If not, it's all pure speculation in my eyes. Let's just wait and see what happens. In the meantime, let's just get behind the club, the team, the staff and crack on with being supporters.
