Never been more convinced
at 07:57 25 Nov 2020

That a manager is not going to turn things around and get us promoted (when it is an absolute necessity this season IMO for the future of the club). It's still early and the season is very much still salvageable if we make a change now. Evans must act.

I see we've been given a ref that officiated a couple of Prem games last year

Mike Jones doesn't want another PL call on Monday morning.

A shame the ref let him get fouled almost every time he had the ball with no consequence.

Mick Mills - top 8 won't be broken
at 14:08 28 Oct 2020

Heard him say after the game last night that he looked at the table before the game and couldn't see the top 8 changing. This was:

Lincoln
Hull
Peterborough
Ipswich
Portsmouth
Charlton
Sunderland
Doncaster

I'd probably put Fleetwood in that mix too but I don't think he's wrong. The table is already taking shape and I can't see anyone below that having the kind of consistency to break into the pack. Unless we have a catastrophic run a la last season we are going to be in/around the top 6. But it makes the games against the other 8 teams listed key and we've already lost to two of them.

Nsiala is a microcosm of the whole side
at 20:56 20 Oct 2020

One error, leads to another, leads to another, leads to another. Seriously worrying that we've folded and capitulated so easily. Good teams rally when their backs are against the wall. The third knocked the stuffing out of us and you could visibly see the confidence drain away. We really need a reaction on Saturday.

A Thought
at 11:37 11 Oct 2020

Anyone else think we are benefitting from the continuity of having largely the same squad as last season. Garbutt aside, we've not lost anyone of note and similarly, Ward and Hawkins aside not added anyone that has started a league game thus far. Without the salary cap and COVID I think we may well have seen far more changes and upheaval.

A lot of sides have had serious overhauls over the summer - with shortened pre seasons (and certainly no trips away to bond etc). We look comparatively well organised, drilled and cohesive.

For a team that apparently set up to play like Liverpool
at 19:13 10 Oct 2020

Blackpool certainly didn't press like them. The amount of time and space Holy, Wilson and Nsiala were given on the ball (with the latter two not being comfortable at all) was incredible.

How good does Dozzell look then?

Quality footballer. Needed a run of games and some faith shown in him. Long may it continue.

Whilst we shouldn't get bent over on the Downes fee
at 13:47 1 Sep 2020

Realistically we are in a poor position. It is a matter of when he goes and we are in "get the best fee we can" territory. Is standing in the way of a player that has a fantastic opportunity at a PL club the look we want when it comes to convincing other promising youngsters to commit to their future here?

Is there a chance he is being signed to play CB rather than striker?

Salary cap - bonuses
at 10:51 10 Aug 2020

How is this going to work? Players already contracted will be capped at the £113k regardless but going forwards are we basically saying you cannot offer win/goal/clean sheet bonuses as part of a contract as it brings unpredictability?

Just been released, was signed by Lambert at Blackburn. Fits the mould for the type of striker we need.

Pretty expensive day for Evans
at 14:09 9 Jun 2020

That'll be the best part of £1m in season ticket refunds + TV money, sponsorship refunds etc on top of that. Will Lambert go? Probably not by virtue of associated costs assuming any clause wouldn't hold up legally in these circumstances.

Odds on trying to offer ST holders some kind of credit rather than issuing refunds?

Going off on one on Twitter again this morning. Getting agreement looks like it's going to be extremely difficult - not sure how any solution is going to get the required support unless the EFL can obtain money and sweeten the deal for the smaller clubs in the league.
