Re: Which would you choose?

The problem I have with Tiger, is that he asset stripped Reading and then ran off with the money. Not sure how he could do that to us, though...How the hell did we get from DE and relative stability, to a situation where Kassam is plausibly seen as a better owner than the one we have currently?. Bu...

Re: Robinson Out

I'm finding it very difficult to see any justification for Robinson keeping his job. Not wishing to be an apologist for what has been a terrible season on the field, I do have a hefty chunk of sympathy for Robinson and the environment he has to work in. He has an absentee chairman, an MD with minim...

Re: Robinson Out

On a different thread, just before Christmas, I said that 1 defeat in 16 is excellent form, however you look at it (that is, whether we win or draw). As more games pass and as we get closer to the sharp end of the season, then the stat quoted on RadOx after the Peterborough match, that we have now w...

Re: Sunderland

I think the biggest mistake made by Remainers and Brexiteers alike was to listen to politicians and the media rather than decide based on personal experience over many years. I agree. Apart from Boston and South Holland, all of those parts of the country that Voted Leave, supposedly because of immi...

Re: Sunderland

who thinks that development of the brand in Asia would be easy because the city is world famous. Setting targets like that in public is just setting up the club to fail. So, a bit like pro-hard Brexit supporters, who believe the country can surge forward, freed from the EUs shackles, because we are...

Re: Sunderland

And if you're looking for a destroyed car industry, have a look around you on Saturday afternoon. That happened while we were in the EU, and the East side of Oxford have suffered ever since, compounded by austerity. I'm not saying it was the EU's 'fault', but it happened in the context of EU member...

We would have been far better signing a free scoring striker from a division or two further down the pyramid.
Things are still not clear, but this is just in, so maybe your wish has come true:

Re: January Transfer Window

I sort of agree with most that has been said above, but trying to stay calm and objective it is also often the case that, from divergent starting positions, negotiations converge rapidly as deadlines loom into view. Why else do we see so many transfers being confirmed in the last 24 hours of the tra...

Re: Robinson Out

Whether judged serious foul play or violent conduct (my immediate reaction was the latter) a red card is given for the action, not its consequences. If red cards are only going to be given if a player is injured (or at least pretends to be - and how can the ref distinguish?), then the upshot is most...
