Re: Sum of our parts

Understand about the wages but it's unfortunate that we appear to be ruled by our second relatively impoverished Middle Eastern Dictator owners.

Re: Fixtures changes - 2017/18/Sky Games

Leon, if you can't get Adam to keep this post on the front page I've decided I'm no longer going to be bothered with it.
Sorry mate but it gets old checking it every 2 days and I forget sometimes - no offence, near the season end anyway.

Re: Sum of our parts

I read a piece today about Gareth Bale. He's already secured his mum and dad's futures, plus his own family of course. 350,000 a week. Hell, if I got that once it would secure our future. Not knocking Gareth at all, looking after mum & dad is a great thing, it just made me think about the obscenity ...

This is absolutely a top 6 squad. But I'm probably the only one here that believes it all about the coaching.
No you're not

Re: Sum of our parts

Well said Clive. I know we haven't done that well overall but I do get a bit fed up of the whining. Some days I swear I can hear it as I sign in - a low hum rising to a crescendo - especially about our FA Cup defeat, with as many threads as possible being polluted by mention of it as if we lost on p...

Re: Us and Qatar

Looking at those 2 links Cjay posted, we are unlikely to get any investment or financial help from any of them, though we may benefit from some talented Aspire youngsters in the future. Unless I'm reading it wrong it's all centered around importing talented African (and other continents) youngsters ...

Re: Is Heck slowly turning us around ?

Some thoughts from Tykes TV - comments Alan Milthorpe 1 week ago Hecky after every game saying the players aren't good enough how can it motivate the lads he lost the dressing room with his doom and gloom . Greg AVFC 69/70 Jones 2 weeks ago prob. blessing in disguise, 'ecky going...poor run of res...

Re: What happened at Millwall tonight ?

From the beeb -

Millwall were forced to hang on for 13 minutes of stoppage time after Wednesday's Jordan Thorniley was stretchered off in the second half, but they saw out victory to extend their unbeaten run in the league to seven matches.

Re: Is Heck slowly turning us around ?

I agree with you about a manager faaip. We got lucky with Revie, Wilko and Graham, but George really wasn't happy and it showed. We got lucky to a point with O'Leary but obviously it imploded in the end. We got lucky with Grayson but had a crap chairtwot. Other than that - :dun: For a club as big as...

Re: Well done Rochdale

I don't think I've ever seen a photo more effective at presenting potential power and ferocity.
Maybe I should begin to watch (somehow) the Raiders this next season.
