Swindon have been £23 this season. Next year's season tickets are £410 for equivalent of East Stand. Really hit attendances. People are getting selective with games. Pricing fans out is a real danger.

Re: Anyone Nervous?

He's not been much different than to under Stam. Typical good winger for this level, he will pop up with a goal and assist, but not consistently. That's basically how he's been all season. He's had runs where he does nothing stat-wise for a good 4 or 5 games. When that's the player you're relying o...

Re: Building for next season

So does anyone know how much 'say' Clement has in signings? Has anything changed in the structure/organization since his hiring? The reason I ask is because, for me, one of the things that appealed about Clement is the network and contacts he (should) have so that he can identify and recruit (good)...

How did Mendes look?

While Beerans was frustrating in some regards defensively. He rarely gave the ball away through a bad pass.

On paper we look to have some good (ish) players but it is pretty clear to me that they struggle to perform as a coordinated unit, ie they are not a team. So, as big a clear out as possible and then build afresh.

We are so far short of being a decent side. Had we been promoted we may have beaten Derby's record haul of 11 points.........

Straight red too. That's a central defender that's out for the 3 remaining games.

Re: BFTG Sunderland

Clement 6 not a midfield combination to try again, please. Crying out for a defensive midfielder from about 10 mins in. Not as if he has any options to choose from. Without Bacuna there's a big hole. No sign of Evans today either. Sometimes I wonder if Blackett would make a defensive midfielder. Sw...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sunderland (h) sponsored by more than 1 shot on target please boys

Starting to fear that Reading might bog this one up in their usual inimitable style as it does seem to have that certain air of expectation about it and, of course, Reading rarely seem to make things easy for themselves. No expectation. The crowd needs to play it's part. This a must win game for bo...

Clement wouldn't even have him on the bench if that was the case.

If he scores the goal that seals our stay in the Championship. I won't care what else he has or hasn't done. He'll have repaid every penny of his wages.

Re: Relegation Watch

Sunderland may well have injury problems for Saturday's fixture. With 2 defenders taken off last night. Although the loss of Bacuna is immense. Seems as if the Gods are at least trying to give us every chance.

Being as Barnsley play Birmingham 8 points would guarantee safety wouldn’t it?

But realistically 4 or 5 would almost certainly do it
