Re: L'éléphant dans la pièce

I think many of us are in fairly negative places at the moment, even if many won't admit it. My thoughts are primarily about how our country, population and living standards will survive first and foremost. Without a vaccine, and with many people not taking the pandemic sufficiently seriously, the ...

L'éléphant dans la pièce

Ok, so I'm generally a bit pessamistic about lots of things now, so maybe this is a result of me being in a negative space. But, honestly, how does our club (or any lower league club) survive this? We have NO income to speak of. Incoming revenue: Season tickets - the club has been quiet on how many ...

Re: How would you end it?

There is, of course, a tremendous opportunity to rebuild football from scratch, to put clubs into local fan-based ownership models, to impose sensible and enforcable wage caps, to cut the cancerous relationship with agents, to redistribute the PL money, to create affordable fan-friendly experiences ...

Re: How would you end it?

Can anyone, honestly, hand on heart, 100 percent definitely say they really believe that League 1 and 2 will exist when football finally reopens to fans? As the Cummings spike kicks in a few week's time, how will play-offs/remaning games possibly happen? As Recordmeister says, for me the real concer...

Anyway, I think Wycombe would be 3rd judged on points per game.
Jeez, can this year get any worse?

Re: The C-word

Deciding leagues, promotions and relegations, and European spots on the basis of an incomplete league seems a legal minefield I don't think anyone, let alone the feeble EFL, will be brave enough to take on. Honestly, I think it will end up null and void, with - I hope - some sort of points bonus for...

Re: The C-word

I'm so worried about this, it's keeping me awake at night and I reckon I think about it 90 percent of the waking day. Sometimes, when doing stuff with the kids, I occasionally forget the apocalypse is about to happen, and then I remember. It's surreal, like an ongoing bad dream. I cannot believe it'...

Re: Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside

I was at the game, Jerome, and it reminded me of the last time I saw us win there, in 1992 when we were full of goals, and they were appalling. (We ended up that season largely rubbish and they ended up with Stan Collymore). The game was over as soon as we got the second, and although they had a lit...

Re: Have I Got Old News For You

Wasn't it Blackpool? No idea who the other keeper who scored against us was. Speaking of goalscoring keepers I believe we have had 4 not already mentioned who have scored goals (albeit not for us). One is easy to get, one scored 8 goals over the course of his career, one was probably our most famou...

Preston retro game - when goalkeeper Alan Kelly played on the wing with his arm in a sling. https://www.lep.co.uk/sport/football/preston-north-end/pne-news/preston-retro-game-when-goalkeeper-alan-kelly-played-on-the-left-wing-with-his-arm-in-a-sling-against-oxford-united-in-1971-1-10088554 http://w...

Re: Chris Wilder

CNEMWO OK I give up. Back in the day of Rage On as a physical fanzine you could buy with money, there was a running joke about Denis "Next England Manager" Smith (Out), aka DNEMSO, lampooning both his claims that he had once been under consideration for the national job and also how far he'd fallen...

Re: Oh dear god

Joking aside, best thing he can do now is front up to the media, admit to a huge mistake, lesson learned, etc and admit to some of the stick he’ll be getting right now from his teammates.

Gavin Whyte's our winger
His got magic in his feet
And when he's back Ireland
He w@#ks off in the street.

A season of almost unrelenting misery, but at least we've got Gavin Whyte.

Our poor start is still everyone else's fault but Robinson's:
