Re: Financial Fair Play

This was also our first year without parachute payments - hence the huge income drop. Looks like the Chinese are getting too balance that income reduction - loans paid off, considerably less interest paid in the year. Ffp wise, because of the profit in the p/o final year, we're OK for this season, b...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

Clement would have been the ideal candidate to bring the U23's through given his coaching credentials. If Clement remained there wouldn't have been a u23s left to bring through. Let alone use, as we all know that's not his philosophy. What a load of clap trap. That's cute, given a bunch of the u23s...

Re: Martinez?

Great save from Emi just before half time. Would have been 1-1 with any of our other keepers in.

Re: BFTG Sheffield United

Exactly. Under McD, Norwood and Williams were awful for 6 months. The midfield even then was a huge weak spot Makes me think of Kelly and Swift - both in the right team with the right players around them could be class - but together and here doesn't work. Williams was shit for 3/4s of his time her...

Re: Gomes: Early Form Check In

Need to remember that if Gregory hadn't bottled it for Millwall against Rotherham we'd be out the relegation zone already. Didn't matter though, we'll be out soon though, won't be back this season either.

Re: CONFIMRED - New Keeper Emiliano Martinez

I thought we were supposed to get that Man Utd guy? The really good one? Joel Castro Pereira? The one sent back to United by Vitória de Setúbal for allegedly being crap? To be fair, that also describes Baker, Ejaria and Miazga with Leeds, Rangers and Nice, but I don't think there's much in it betwe...

Re: Rumour - Ruben Semedo

What type of player is he?

He's strong as passing, in the air, tackling and has a decent number of interceptions. His main weakness is he's ill disciplined.

He likes to dribble on the ball, plays a lot of short passes and fouls a lot...
