Re: Swift to... Southampton

I really hope Howe and Bowen take a different approach to the one some are advocating. We need to maximise what we get from sales, not give players away at less than market value ! Luckily the club know the financial details so should make informed decisions rather than just guessing. Selling Olise...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Or maybe next season is the one to own up and take the points deduction with spa serious chance of getting away without going down.

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

There's definitly a second glass ceiling forming between The Championship and League 1. Those figures may indeed be wrong and there is the proviso that at the time of publication, Bolton and Sheffield Wednesday (opposite ends of the financial spectrum, I'd imagine) had not published accounts. Bolto...

Re: Rival Watch

Nah, was an awful call from an awful referee and could potentially cost Brentford a place in the premier league as they were the better team before that He's been around in the Championship for years, consistently awful.

Re: Rival Watch

Poor decision, once more the referee is undermined for no good reason. The fact it wasn't even a foul doesn't help the referee. It was a foul I the referee’s opinion and the pictures seem to support that....presumably no reason has been given for overturn g it ? Rescinding should only ever be on th...

Re: Bowen's Tenure

Why do people think we're well stocked in midfield? We've got a plethora of airy fairy attacking midfielders and one guy who can put a shift in. We play 3 in midfield. How is Rinomhota, Swift (likely to be sold) Olise and Holsgrove well stocked? Oh, and Araruna, a guy whose played one game there, l...

Which decision you referring to - the penalty?


The red card

Even if it’s overturned on appeal, which it will be, it’s cost Brentford 30 minutes a man light.

Re: The generic transfer thread

Winston Biscuit Not so sure. 32 years old with a history of injuries. Can see it being one where in 6 months Brighton fans are moaning about how much money they are paying him

Fair comment - AL of 2 maybe 3 years ago would have been quite a coup for Brighton but it seems a little late in the day for him and them

Re: Bowen's Tenure

Its funny how often we debate changing managers yet all seem to agree we change managers too often. Its like half of us have fooled ourselves into thinking "yeah, the next one will do better. That'll be the one to improve us". Also if we were going for a new manager it should be the Cowle...

Bit harsh to say this but a relatively week championship next season

There’s no way the PFA will allow their members to play 46 games in 7 days.
