|EFL Set to Switch to Five Subs|
May be good for time wasting but no good as a spectacle to watch.
If you want to introduce 5 subs then so be it, But Only 3 during the second half. The other 2 can either be in the first half or at half time.
|Lambert: We Were a Bit Below But Showed Great Resilience|
Putting it bluntly we were second best all day. Ended up with 10 players when in reality they should have been down to 10 long before us, even their local radio station said there was no way he should have remained on the pitch. As is the case, the same player then scores the equaliser and we manage to hang on for the final 20 minutes. A good point in the circumstances but rather toothless display.
|Lambert: Downes Faces Fight to Get in Team|
Lamberts way of saying we are going to sell him so will not play him. Does not want him injured and jeopardise the sale. We have a strong midfield squad and others have played well, Dozzell especially. But, Downes was the best midfielder and most consistent player last year. Plus this year will only be better. He will go, it’s just getting the right price for him.
|Clubs Vote in Favour of Salary Cap|
This basically negates any advantage we had with bigger than average crowds and commercial turnover. It also means we will not have much turnover with playing staff as those not playing will just hang on for a couple of years to see their current high paying contracts out before leaving. This season is now sh1t or bust for us as if we do not get out this time we could be cut adrift for quite a while. Add to that if you did get up actually staying there is now that much harder.
|Lambert: Last Year Wasn't Good Enough|
Not all bad news. Take a look at our squad, KVY back after only playing a handful of games last year, Jack Lancaster back after a whole year out, Norwood 100% fit again (hopefully) in my opinion that is like signing new players. Take also the fact that Teddy Bishop, Freddie Sears, Emyr Hews, are fit. Downes, Woolfy, Dozzell will all improve. Surely we are going to be better than last year. Even with no signings I expect us to be up there.
Well I can dream
|Jackson Concentrating on Football|
Think this sums up exactly the difference between fans and players. Quite happy to Let his agent sort things out, does not appear that bothered if a contract is not sorted, he will just move to the next team and the process begins again. Nowhere did I hear he wants to stay, enjoys being here etc.
To me this just proves he treats being here a job not a privilege, it does not matter to him what shirt he puts on, just the size of the pay packet.
|O'Neill Delighted Young Duo Have Signed Deals|
Why are the majority of comments negative? A very good player has signed a long term deal and as usual the knockers use it as an excuse to moan about the club. The fact is that the club have protected their asset for a bit longer and if another club comes in with a bid for any player it makes it easier to decline or make sure the price is higher. Likewise if the player was not committed why would he sign a longer deal. If he had let his contract run down then he can demand higher wages at another club as they do not pay a transfer fee to us.
For me it is a win,win situation well done club and player.
|Unlikely League One Play-Off Extension Proposed|
Whether you like it or not everybody is looking after their own interests, as you would expect. It would be totally different from our perspective if we were sitting in the top 2. I think the general consensus then would be we should not void the season.
|Evans: Focus Should Be on How We Finish the Season|
Bluearmy81. Like I said same old faces knocking every time something is said or done. No matter good or bad.
Under investment? Well the owner has ploughed in millions if you look at the balance sheet. Without that contribution we would be in a very sorry state yet he gets pilloried every day.
With the under investment shortfall we obviously have, why don’t you pay more or make a donation above your ticket price if you are that concerned. As for selling players, yes we have sold. Some bad decisions by the managers here at the time and others to stop the shortfall in finances we have each season.
The biggest problem we have along with the majority of the football league is SKY TV. Their money makes football so unfair to anybody not in the premier league. That is why we have to keep selling players who go to them and then sit on the bench, never to be heard of again.
|Evans: Focus Should Be on How We Finish the Season|
Getting a bit boring how the same old faces keep knocking the manager, owner and players. Whatever they do they are wrong, at least let the bloke have an opinion.
He could sign Messi tomorrow and would be knocked as he should have signed Ronaldo.
As the saying goes “an empty drum makes the most noise”.
If you are that fed up go support the 6 fingered brigade up the road, or maybe you already do.
|My Best Town XI: George Burley - Part One|
Best town team of all time. Although my idol was always “big Al”. A giant on the pitch who always looked after the younger players when they played. Woe betide any hard men on the opposing side who tried to intimidate or bully them. If a youngster got hit it was only a matter of time before Hunter gave him payback, with interest!!!!!
|Town Confirm Majority of Off-Field Staff on Furlough|
Makes a change for our owner to get positive remarks on this site. At least he is doing the right thing, unlike Spurs, Newcastle and others.
I cannot believe Spurs are actually taking advantage of the government initiatives when they made millions last year. Plus I believe Levy also received a multi million pound bonus when they moved to their new stadium. It appears some of our football teams have no morals when it comes to money and greed of their billionaire owners.
I would be ashamed to be a Spurs supported
|Lambert: Fans Will Accept Clubs Utilising Squads If Season Resumes|
Our season is over, it does not matter what we do. Hopefully we can get the games of this season played so the teams that do deserve something get it. I.E. Liverpool get to win the premier league and Norwich get relegated. At least that way we have something to cheer about.
Oh and by the way, I do agree that Lambert is sincere in his thoughts. It is just that some people will have a dig no matter what he does or say. Just like they moan about certain players no matter what they do on the pitch.
|Judge: As Low as I've Felt in My Career|
I have no doubt about the players work ethic and willingness to try and win. None of them deliberately goes out to play badly. The problem is we are not seeing any of them perform to their best ability. Be this through poor tactics or formation.
Even at the start of the season when we were winning they were still underperforming.
We then had comments about “ if we were winning and playing badly just wait until we start to play”.
Unfortunately we are still waiting for the real team to turn up
|Chambo: Wembley Final Would Be Great Day Out for Fans|
This is the first time one of the players have actually said they want to win his competition. And let’s be honest this is the best chance we have of winning a cup at Wembley. Whatever you may think of this competition, there is no doubt we would all flock there in droves to support the team.
