Re: Where are they now?

Michael Standing (possibly the one who played briefly for us) involved in court cases regarding the ownership and funding of Slumdon Town. http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Ch/2020/1171.html http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Ch/2020/1173.html Yes, it appears to be that Michael Standing .

Re: How would you end it?

I think the league needs to have some idea of what next season is going to look like before making final decisions about this one. Football is going to change dramatically, at least in the short-to-medium term. Will clubs survive? What will the structure and timescales be? Those are more important q...

Re: Furlough

So there should be an opportunity to get some more revenue there (and maybe even share it more evenly if more matches are broadcast) Highly sceptical of that. I confidently predict any TV deal will make the rich clubs richer whilst the smaller clubs rely on iFollow revenues (which will be a fractio...

Re: Furlough

For non-PL clubs, especially lower down, if games are played behind closed doors, even resuming matches would not see revenues return, as there is next to no TV coverage to speak of. I reckon almost all matches will be 'televised' in some form or another. I don't mean park football, but certainly d...

Re: Have I Got Old News For You

In another journalist scraping the barrel feature, Oxford United are high up in a round up of Stoke City's 'worst' opponents. https://www.stokesentinel.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/stoke-city-arsenal-liverpool-gillingham-3997757 It might be 'scraping the barrel', but I'd absolutely love that ...

Re: The C-word

Yes I saw that yesterday. Though I'm not sure I should listen to one bloke on the internet rather than the Chief Medical Officer. In fact I think this is part of the problem. A bloke who wrote an article called 'How to write a funny speech' writes another one about coronavirus, and 17 million people...

The C-word

Worthy of its own thread surely! What I imagine may derail us this season is the c-virus and the impact this will have on our (already dreadful) finances. It is only a matter of time before we see games being played behind closed doors/the season postponed. Given how much we are already losing this ...

Re: Freefall

And now Robinson is making clear hints about unhappiness. Isn't that just interpretation to stimulate debate? I've heard nothing from Robbo that suggests any frustration are with the club. More likely I suspect his frustrations are with the poor standard of referees and effective gagging by the EFL...

Re: Freefall

Looking at the goals on the highlights reel, the tempo of the attacks and the slick passing reminded me of how Posh tore us apart. Play like that against anybody in this division and they will struggle to live with it. We scored some lovely goals and won at an absolute canter. But we were pretty sl...

Re: Freefall

I also don’t have a problem with stability - I’ve said several time that it’s been an enjoyable season and I’m happy that we’re at the right end of the table. But various members of the Board have said on various occasions that the aim is to become an established Championship club. And in early Janu...

Re: Freefall

Interesting debate about the money problems at the top of football. But I'm not sure that explains a spanking against Peterborough, a club currently spending their seventh consecutive season in League 1. I wasn't at the game, Jerome, but we know that we are capable of matching teams man for man, inc...

Re: Newcastle Utd

No comments on the replay? Having got over the disappointment of Newcastle's late goal I reckon that was a pretty decent showing from Us. The disappointing aspect is that where we kept our shape and discipline almost perfectly for 90 mins at SJP, here we had a hand in all of Newcastle's goals - dick...

Re: Bapxit Day

Agree with Ty that we were always expecting to lose a couple of midfielders in this window - otherwise why sign Kelly and Holland? The real issue is the timing and expectation management by the club, and the fact that we've replaced assets with short-term loans. Disagree with Ty that Baptiste wouldn...

Re: Newcastle Utd

The Klopp schtick is wearing very thin. One of his first games in charge of Liverpool (iirc) was a cup tie at Exeter, where he played the kids and had to come back to Anfield for a replay. You’d have thought he’d have learned by now. This was easily avoidable by fielding a half-decent XI, who are an...

Re: Newcastle Utd

Given that our match is confirmed for the Tuesday and BBC's live match is scheduled for the Wednesday, I'm asuming the Beeb will be showing Spurs vs Saints and the best we can hope for is BT Sport. I wasn't counting on BBC1 shifting their schedule around to accomodate the Mighty Yellows of course. ...
