Re: 2017/2018 - What went wrong?

Might be a bit simplistic but I put it squarely down to the mental issues suffered by the team following us conceding two late goals against Cardiff in early December. We had just come off the back of two wins against Barnsley & Sunderland and our tails were up. Winning against Cardiff would ha...

Re: Season Tickets 18/19

I don't think season ticket prices are unreasonable but it would be nice if the club could offer some non-fleecing payment plans. For example - an adult East Stand could be £75 deposit then £100 on 1 September, December and March. It can't be that hard to administer.

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

Another thought - this does mean we could revive the 'wing-back' idea. I guess that both Obita and Yiadom would be better suited to a more free-flowing, attacking role. But then I hear that Clement isn't keen on that style. Something like --------------------------------Manone ----------------------...

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

Losing is a bad habit to get into. Players get nervous, hide, and underperform on a losing streak. Bringing in a player who experienced relegation might not be the best way to break the cycle of underachievement. Not a bad signing in and of itself, but we also need some players added to the current...

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

Sounds like a sensible signing given our ambitions at the moment. He'll probably move between LB and RB cover for most of next season before fully replacing Gunter the one after. Next on the target list is someone in midfield who can make things happen and a decent striker. He's 26 and signed a 4 y...

Re: 2017/2018 - What went wrong?

For me it basically comes down to a reduction in quality available, worse luck and a continued deterioration in moral/mentality at the club. Basically - 2016/17 was like someone rolling four dice and all of them coming up 5 or 6. 2017/18 was like someone rolling three dice and all of them coming up ...

Re: Building for next season

Am I alone in thinking we really ought to play 3 at the back next season? •Blackett only has a hope if he plays as a three •Gunter would be great in a three and wouldn’t frustrate us like he does as full back •Obita, Richards and Watson would be better suited to wingback •Bacuna could be amazing as...

Re: Safe standing progress

What does that have to do with anything? some people have the bizarre idea that allowing safe-standing/terracing means everyone will forced to stand. One of the the stupid things in all this is that there's absolutely nothing at all, not a single regulation anywhere, that prevents clubs installing ...

Re: Goodbye

I think it's important that we do consider the reasons for why the season was so bad. I mean, to an extent you do want to get forget it and move on but you want to deal with any problems that are still around. - We didn't really have an ownership or budgeting issues this season. Ok, we didn't have m...

Just seen the goals. The defending was PATHETIC Two season plan needed, season one should be to buy 3 players who will run themselves into the ground for the team first and foremost.

I'd been interested to see a league table of results from the Burton home game onward. I know that we'd be bottom 3, but not sure how far off . .

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we go to Cardiff having already secured status, and Colin needing to win for automatic !! Dreamland. I don't like Warnock but I don't have anything in particular against Cardiff. Assuming Swansea stay up it would be good to have another tasty PL derby. Also I quite enjoy...

Re: Building for next season

I'm hoping that we're just going to start the season with a different mentality and atmosphere to this one, and that a few current under-performers will up their game. Aluko looks like he has a lot of talent so if Clement can manage him better then between him and Barrow we could have a pretty decen...

Re: Safe standing progress

Whilst not being a direct reason for Hillsborough, it was indicative of how football supporters were regarded at the time, fenced in in unsafe areas, and treated as a problem. Pick up any fanzine in the aftermath of Hillsborough and they were all awash with stories of crumbling terraces, aggressive...
