That way there will be little for their moronic fans to turn up for and less for those who do turn up to to cause trouble about.

Our fans are entitled to be at the ground and around without having to be intimidated ot threatened by drunken 70's throwbacks - intent on confirming that they are arzwholes of the highest order.

Off the bottom
at 16:23 19 Apr 2019

I had hoped we could at the very least haul ourselves of the bottom.

If we can't get past a bankrupt Bolton with all their woes, then just how bad are we ?

And I cannot see much in the way of points against Sheff Utd and Leeds - and we could end up with a worse goal difference than points on the board !

FA Cup draw 5th round
at 18:40 27 Jan 2019

Yes, I know we are not in it but it does not stop idle speculation.

Newport to go through and draw fellow 'taffs' Swansea.

Wolves v WBA

QPR v Barnet/Brentford

two Mancs play each other

Wimbledon against one of the Mancs

Millwall at home to Chelsea !

as you can see it's local 'rivalry' that interests, though i don't begrudge any lower league club a good pay day as there's also £30m to be divied out this year in prize money

plus £250,000 to the the club from each of the lower leagues who go the furthest - welcome money if you are in L1 or L2

It's all down t Hurst....or is it ?
at 17:27 5 Jan 2019

Just like the drunk who falls down the stairs blames it on the last pint he had.
Because nothing in our previous decade had suggested this was where we were heading ?

No clues, no indication. Just wallop. A successful club riding high suddenly found itself dumped on the floor without the wherewithal to get up.

Yep, that avoids accepting that we have been on the slide for years. We have ran up an extra £60m or so of debt to achieve what. What current player would fetcha decent fee ? As those who would have long gone.

A right back who could get into a L1 team. Strikers that are clearly out of their depth in the Championship. Nine signed players out of contract in the summer ...all down to Hurst ?

How any times have we seen player's contracts run down ? Any wonder so many 'jump ship' and head to more secure clubs.

Today's sickener is the end product of a long line of incompetence from having a non football owner and CEOs. Lumping all the blame on Hurst rather overlooks that the other managers struggled as well under Evans.

Maybe that's where the real clue can be found.

Should we be a bit more grateful ?
at 18:25 1 Jan 2019

After all doesn't Evans 'pump money into the club' (insert random figure here) ?

Surely all the blame lies at the feet of Hurst who having been given huge sums (insert even bigger figure here) chose to waste it all on lower league failures. Just as MM did.

Look how the club spoiled Evans idea of a CAT 1 academy, even after Evans allowed fans to contribute towards that cause.

He gave us Simon Clegg, a footballing genius who was so proficient at his job that he was simultaneously able to organise Mr Evans Olympic ticket sales.

And then that other footballing guru, Ian Milne. A man who came up with that clever wheeze of moving all possible money out of the club into another Evans account so as to earn more interest. Sort of pumping money out of the club, some might say.

Hooray for Evans should be our watchword

Seven of starting line up
at 16:57 30 Dec 2018

...yesterday are out of contract in June

Gerken, Spence, Chambers (c), Pennington, Kenlock, Chalobah and Sears

with two on the bench Bishop and Knudsen also out of contract in June.

We lose Ward and Adeyemi and any loanees

So do we cash in where possible ?

However at least if we do go down then we will not have too many 'heavy' contracts to fund.

How many points to stay up ?
at 22:14 26 Dec 2018

If we take 45 points as being a minimum to hit 21st or above then that's another 30 points.

If we draw a blank at Boro then that leaves us with 21 games to get those points ie 1.4 points a game.

A tally that would have us in 11th place were we to have achieved that average in the first half of the season. You can change the variables but another 30 points over 22 games - as opposed to 15 over 24 games so far, looks to be a fair bench mark.

Wen need something from two thirds of the final games.

Why blame Hurst ?
at 17:05 9 Dec 2018

He seems to be a convenient scapegoat to mask years of 'mismanagement' by Marcus Evans.

How much were the signings he made down to the limited funds made available ? We did not simply become a struggling club last summer. The downward spiral has been pretty much par for the course under Evans.

Yep it might have been two steps forward, one back at odd points. But mostly it has been one step forward and two back. We are where we are now because of that long term decline. Not the actions of one unsuitable manager.

Whatever PL does will be against the backdrop of Marcus Evan's running (ruining) of our club. Nothing suggests that decline will not continue.

Depressing times.
