Re: Free away travel

Great move by the owners. Personally, I would have been tempted to leave out clubs that charge more than £30 for a ticket. By offering free travel we are in effect increasing ticket sales for them. That's not a moan, just a suggestion. Reasonable point - but the main thing is to get support for our...

Re: Are we screwed?

Having a decent goalie that players trust is so important. It gives the defence a bit more confidence - which means more attacking play in general. Getting one of Martinez' quality was a bit of a fluke though, it's unlikely that anyone we could get in would start performing instantly like him. I'm s...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Sutekh Like the home kit.

The away kit is passable.

Wonder if the Megastore has it on display.

Crazy to not be able to buy until 3rd August though.


You mean *Fanstore* :D :lol:

Re: CONFIMRED - Charlie Adam

He's exactly the sort of midfield goal threat that we've been missing in recent years. But I'm not a fan of these older, expensive-wage signings.

He must have had a big influence last season for us to want to do this.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Interesting that we try and save money by getting the kit later than everyone else.

Then spend money on publicity stunts like sending the kit into space*.

*Which resulted in one of my favourite comments of all time - "They're seeing how it works in a place with no atmosphere." :D

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I can't understand a lot of the positivity around the current squad. Are people forgetting how much we struggled without the 5 loanees in Jan? This is the same side (maybe slightly younger and more inexperienced) that really, really struggled at champ level. I remain positive that we'll get a few m...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I would have given McNulty a shot rather than Baldock At least McNulty has been scoring goals recently,Baldock just seems to run around a lot not really doing that much Not sure. McNulty only seems able to score at a level/team where he's getting lots of chances. Baldock is a proven Championship go...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Not everyone chooses an occupation/lifestyle based off of money. Some people value the quality of their work and I would feel guilty earning as much as he does when he’s not doing anything for it if he’s not included in our squad But everyone thinks different thoughts and he may choose to take the ...

I know its generally not a good thing but I am quite excited about how many youngsters have been brought on the trip. If we presume the senior squad looks something like this: GKs - Walker RBs - Yiadom, Watson, Howe CBs - Moore, Osho, McIntyre LBs - Blackett, Obita, Richards CMs - Rinomhota, East, ...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

I still think that the 'delay' hurts the club rather than help. Like, it's not a big deal, but it just needlessly annoys some fans and makes it harder for people to buy the kit for the start of the season if they're on holiday beforehand.

Re: STs for season 2019/2020

Idk - The general atmosphere around the club feels a little different now. There's no longer (or I hope not) a section of the fans that believe we're good enough for anything other than surviving in the league; we're all pretty united in our low expectations and understanding of the battle we face. ...
