|This stance from Hurst is the first real.....|
at 08:43 17 Jul 2018
....deviation from the previous manager's approach.
It's been plainly obvious to all but the most deluded fans that a number of the squad just aren't up to standard.
The previous manager maintained our league position through playing to the minimal strengths that the squad had and retaining a close knit team spirit.
We survived, by playing crap football with largely crap players.
Hurst has a very different approach obviously, reminding the squad how crap they are and looking to make wholesale changes.
Unfortunately both of them have the same problem, the owner.
I really hope that Hurst knows what he's dealing with and that he didn't fall for a pre recorded "interview" like so many fans did.
|Bart or Waggy.....|
at 13:08 9 Jul 2018
....on the assumption that one of them is off, to balance the books, who would you prefer to see go?
Definitely Bart for me. Keepers are ten a penny these days and £3M seems about a fair price.
Waggy will be a lot harder to replace, on the assumption that last seasons form wasn't just a flash in the pan. Which of course it may have been.
The only real concern is having the time to find a replacement for whichever one (or both, or others) does go.
Just get on with it Evans.
|I see that Bart had to.....|

.....take his own selfie on the plane.
Assume this is because all his team mates hate him and refused to take one themselves.

...Sky 422 at the moment.
Toulon semi final against the jocks.
Callum Connolly is playing.
If anyone is interested.
|Can't the club just......|

.....get on with releasing the new kit!
It'll give us something else to get our knickers in a twist over.

....he needs to accept he's a slaphead.
That Arthur Scargill/Bobby Charlton hairdo is doing him no favours.

......"Multi millionaire international businessman convinces local country folk of his good intentions by stringing 3 sentences together".
I genuinely think some of you lot still stare in awe at planes.

|The most disappointing thing about Klug.....|
at 08:05 11 Apr 2018
....being appointed caretaker is that I’ve never been 100% certain about how to pronounce his name.
I’m pretty comfortable with “Bryan”, but how do you pronounce his surname?
I’m going B, but any help would be appreciated.
|The Scunthorpe chairman has confirmed.....|
at 17:04 26 Mar 2018
....that both Steve Cotterill and Steve McClaren are possible replacements for Graham Alexander.
Shows the "pool" we are fishing in now.
We'll probably take whatever one Scunthorpe don't want.
Rock 'n Roll.
|League table based on this season's spending....|

18. Villa £3M (4, +14)
19. PNE £2M (8, +11)
20. Sunderland £1.5M (24, -4)
21. QPR £0.5M (15, +6)
22. Millwall £0.5M (10, +12)
23. Burton £0.5M (23, 0)
24. Bolton £0M (19, +5)
Over performers, Villa, Millwall, Preston and Cardiff
Under performers, Birmingham, Hull, Leeds and Reading.
I don't trust all the figures (ours is too high for a start) but on the basis that they all come from the same source they should be correct relatively.
It doesn't take into account incoming fees, but still shows the relative spending power of the clubs.
Highlights the gulf between the top and bottom halves of the spending league.

|What would happen if Mick was given another year.....|
at 09:58 23 Feb 2018
.....to see what he could do with a relatively injury free squad, and #evansout slashed season ticket prices?
I'm talking about knocking a decent wedge off them, a couple of hundred quid or even halving them.
Would that be a plan?
