  • As I said above...I think the injury knocked him back and he did not really ahve time to get back up to speed. Smyth and Fred being available for our run in would (in my opinion) have made the difference between promotion/playoffs and just ending in…
  • Excellent article. Wherever we end up I'm proud we acted with some semblance of dignity and if we have to have another season on League One...I will be happy to look forward to an uncontested promotion next term.
  • @Right_in_the_Middle said: Mike Williamson and Alfie Mawson There's a few goals in that combo. Wasn't Williamson our top scorer (albeit the Taylor era) at the time that he left?
  • Surely getting into the Championship on a dodgy ballot and the outrage that would follow from a number of 'big clubs' with 'big managers' is likely to be the best thing about this appalling lock-down...and will keep us in banter and limbs for years …
  • '‘I doubt there are many regular League One watchers outside of the passionate folk of Buckinghamshire who, knowing what you are going to get, were not mightily pissed off at the thought of Wycombe finishing in the top six never mind in third place.…
  • @Malone not madness at the top, I think Stoke is a reasonably well run club...I think their present problem is player power. Once that is sorted, they will probably make a run back to the Premier League again under a decent manager. I think the Rev …
  • @mooneyman hmmm yes put it that way and I can see his dilemma and I understand what you're saying @StrongestTeam but he missed out on a promotion on his CV and Stoke would have needed another manager pretty sharp after the end of the season anyway. …
  • He was mad to go when he did with promotion so close. Mad to go to a proven basket case club like Stoke. Obviously not mad to take the big wedge I assume he got.
  • If we want to press on next season (wherever we are) I would like Grimmer AND McCarthy. Though I agree that Smyth looked a bit less effective after his injury if GA can get him and Nmandi back I would be very impressed as I reckon both are great you…
  • 'Nine huge games ahead of him?'...apologies if I did not get the memo but is the Championship definitely carrying on then?
  • It takes me ages to get my office zoom to work...are the screens close enough to the lino to question his fitness and eyesight?

  • I'm saving my outrage for when I actually know what is happening.
  • Im surprised that anyone is surprised that PM Cummings behaved the way he did. Anyone really doubt that he was quite happy to let 'a few oaps' die to save the economy now? Like steve bannon he has contempt for pretty much everyone. The funny thing i…
  • @HolmerBlue Sometimes, it's a bit like looking at the comments section below articles in the Daily Mail...you really fear for the world.
  • @floyd said: Am I the only one a little bit surprised that there was nothing in the rules about how to settle league positions in a curtailed season already? I think they are in the cabinet next to the government safeguards for the nation…
  • We worked very hard to get 'lucky' this season.
  • Agree @WidmerWanderer I could do with the money but I won't be asking for a refund.
  • @Right_in_the_Middle said: Oh and while we are talking footballer TV appearances, Robbie Savage's turn on the daily government briefing has to be on of the bizarre moments of the lockdown. Indeed...I heard about it but did not see it. If …
  • I have to say I found his (BArton's) book a very interesting read and he is a character. Bellend? Bizarrely Idiotic at times? oh yes...but no more so than Adams or Evans. I quite like him.
  • The traditional crisp eater is by nature a considerate creature who makes use of the available waste receptacles...yer Pringle tuber, Co-op sandwich eating, white lightning drinker however is a different animal altogether.
  • it's okay @johnthehair we're talking about playing football (or not I'm not entirely sure) on a football forum which is okay...and I'm a long way away from my nearest Gasroomer. It does not mean we are not taking the virus seriously, we have 24 hou…
  • If we get promoted by some bizarre accounting system I will be totally dissatisfied with the way the integrity of the game has been destroyed...whilst also finding the loud, angry braying of other clubs and the subsequent years of hatred we will hav…
  • Just had it confirmed that lock down is officially over walked through the park...beer cans, fag packets, pop bottles and sandwich packets strewn about in the previously well tended grass and by all of the benches. Makes you proud...
  • Why not have every team pick a penalty taker...then they and the goalie go to wembley...sit in the stands (plenty of room to social distance) and just go down and settle each outstanding game on pens? I will charge my usual consultation fee...
  • @EwanHoosaami said: @LX1 said: @Shev said: It definitely looks as though Colchester and Plymouth are not as hated as the other three, who all had fairly similar scores. So I would pose the question…
  • To be fair @ChasHarps this set of poor quality HR managers, heartless millionaires and their blustering head sales rep were expecting nothing more taxing than a year or three of honking about foreigners so having to DO something must have come as a …
  • That sounds about right....I'm in D back row, silent during games, big pile of crisp packets at my feet.
  • Indeed football is not vital, going to the pictures is not vital, haircuts are not vital, Eastenders is not vital, going to the theatre is not vital...but it's nice (not Eastenders possibly) and part and parcel of life. Financially and socially you …
  • @Twizz said: You can also televise the footy to keep at least some people amused while they stay in lockdown. Not sure televised haircutting appeals to so many, although I am vaguely aware of there having been TV programs based upon who can cu…
  • @EwanHoosaami said: Actually @Wendoverman, Dobbo ain't no midget. Might be wrong but he may be bigger than Gaz? I'll take your words for it, it might be the angle I look at the dug-out @EwanHoosaami
