Mid Sussex Royal Just read Bristol C have released half their first team squad; I know they fell apart a bit but their injuries even surpassed ours most of the season....



Could be a tough year for brizzle next year

That Mbuemo miss for Brentford is worse than Joao's at Barnsley I reckon

I respectfully disagree. Mbuemo was stretching for a fast moving ball. Joao had time to pick his spot with a slow moving one.

Much better atmosphere in the Barnsley game. Bournemouth-Brentford was surprisingly dull atmosphere-wise

Superb finish from Andre Ayew, who should really not be playing in the Championship

I very much doubt PL defenders would show him on to his left foot like the defenders in this league, schoolboy defending.

I know, form about 3 yards, absolute shocker and you have to imagine it might lead to yet another Brentford choke

yep, it was so obvious what he was trying to do - pretty poor from Barnsley to make it so easy for him. nice finish saying that

Sometimes you can have too much time to think, end up second guessing yourself. Not defending the shot mind, was still horrific

Stoke have just announced losses of £91m for last season...unless they were making a profit before that surely must put them in FFP breach territory?

Firstly they need to deduct points off Derby to send them down (where is that by the way)? Then, because of Covid draw a line on all FFP and start again :wink:

The Derby thing will roll on until next year - apparently the panel don't meet until mid-June and then Derby will likely appeal any penalty.

The losses can be no more than £39m over 3 seasons, so they must have found a huge pot of hidden gold somewhere to mitigate that £91m!

that is one hell of a loss. Not sure they even have that many highly paid players now - been down a few years

With the Stoke thing, those £91m losses are from their 2nd season back in the Championship, does that mean it's too early to judge if they went over the £39m limit. So the 20/21 figures will make their 3rd season and will complete the first set of 3 financial years in the Championship.

However they lost £15m last season so they're probably well and truly oxf*rd.

Andre Ayew has left Swansea, a huge gap to fill, mid table next season I suspect.
