  1. Hope the club are braced for the copyright claim when option 2 wins.
  2. As I say, I get the other side of the coin, but I watch football for reasons other than wanting my club to earn money for winning a game. I'm not saying it's not in and of itself an opportunity for the club to make cash. In the long run they may end up worse off, but whether they do or they don't it doesn't make the game or the tournament any more appetising.
  3. Rubbish. I started supporting us in April 1994. I've no past glory to live off. We're a professional Football League team being demanded to play against youth teams. There was no need to restructure the competition. The clubs took the cash for short term reasons, which I understand, but that is why there is apathy - indeed antipathy- towards the competition (from me, anyway).
  4. Because it's demeaning playing in a competition with youth teams from the second division? And that's ignoring the damage it is potentially doing as a backdoor to a wider undermining of the pyramid. I did enjoy it in its former guise. The current one is an abomination so the blood money is of little relevance in the grand scheme of things (clearly the hierarchy will feel otherwise).
  5. Can't believe he isn't treating the second round of the Pizza Cup more seriously.
  6. It will be interesting to see what happens with allocations. Would they not be done away with to discourage travel? The guidance on the link from Matt above says for step 3-6 fans are asked to follow the government advice and not travel from a Tier 3 area. However that is advisory and not mandatory and so if there are allocations in principle then I guess the question arises as to whether clubs will make them available in practice.
  7. So the only fixture that Latics fans within GM would be able to go to (capacity dependent) is FCUM away?
  8. I think you'll find according to the Fishal that is former 'favourite' Jonny Placide. Which is a strange description of someone who played an important role in our relegation.
  10. I reckon it could have turned in the Main Stand after the North Stand closed but then we started banging in a load of goals and winning home games.
  11. Yes but which do you think is more likely when it was blindingly obvious we needed more of an attacking threat at the start of last season - 1. Barry said 'there is a lad at Bristol City who I was tracking when he was on loan at Tranmere'; or 2. Barry said 'I'll call Lee Johnson and ask if he can lend us someone'
  12. He's a fucking puppet and a sycophant. Part of the problem, not the solution.
  13. Not putting any more money into the club should be a no brainer. In normal times I can see how some would say they'd rather support the team, but surely paying for a stream (which is pretty much the club's only revenue source) has no effect on the XI and cannot be an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon/evening. Owning the club needs to be an unattractive proposition to AL. There's a lot that could be done in normal times that can't be done now, but starving of any revenue is very straightforward.
