  1. Good luck to him. I liked him, not the best player we ever had, but always played with a smile on his face and he gave us 100%. I will always back the players that put the effort in and I can't fault JBW on that front.

    And as has already been pointed out, we are not going to see a household buy multiple streams. It would be stupid for anyone to do so if someone in their household already has it.

    Thing is, some clubs will know they hold the cards. Charge it and pay it, or miss out.
  4. If the start is delayed then maybe a few "special" payments need to be made by the football association to help. Pull all cup competitions, however give every club the equivalent payment of reaching R3 of the FA Cup in prize money (Funded by the FA). Take last seasons average attendances of each club to get a rough estimate of how much clubs made through gate money, then the FA award the clubs 30% of that as a "crisis" payment. It may cost the FA 25/30M in total, but that is nothing when considering its keeping 50+ clubs going. Season Ticket holders get FREE access to both home and

    Brown

    One of the first acts PW did as manager was to extend Brown's contract. This would have been along the lines of 'paId x amount per week, with the expectation that the player "works" x days, or a minimum amount of hours in the week. If those hours then increase, or an extra day is added on, the player is doing more than what he agreed to on the contract. I don't know the ins and outs of Brown's contract, however 12 months ago it was PW that put it on the table for him. If there is now a problem with it, is that the players problem/fault or the person that gave him that contract

    Agreed. With that said, our government have been nothing short of shambolic throughout the entire crisis. So many rules that are unclear. They change from day to day, don't apply until certain times (like the virus goes on holiday and won't attack until a certain point!), are inconsistent and generally seem to lack any faith or trust. The other issue is that there are still way too many idiots that just think they can carry on as normal.

    Maybe that bit is in there because Brown WAS prepared to go the extra mile but was in fact told not to turn up?

    Why don't the government try something "drastic" to break the virus. Time it with the school holidays in October and put EVERYONE in the country into lockdown. All shops, all entertainment, all towns and cities with everything shut down. You have a few weeks now to buy goods to last you for that 2/3 week period. Advance or give every person £250 to buy food for that period if needs be. The only people allowed out would be medical and police. Put the Army on the streets and anyone outside is arrested. Keep that going for 2/3 weeks. If you are outside in that period of time and it is n

    Hasn’t Brown been criticised for weeks following PW’s statement at the start of Pre-season?

    Didn’t, couldn’t or wasn’t allowed?

    Brown

    I don’t agree with this move and think we have made ourselves weaker by letting him go. I hope it doesn’t come back to bite us in the arse. One thing is for sure, PW can not hide if the players he has brought in fail to hit the standard needed. This is his team, so while I hope we are singing his name in a year saying what a superb job he is still doing, if those he has brought in fail it is his neck on the line.
  12. Will be interesting to see how it swings tonight. Adams looked superb and did more in the opening game than Clowney did for Seattle all last season, however I wasn’t overly impressed with the defence bar him. Olsen looked great in offense.
  13. Think Im going to watch the Jets v 49ers instead. I feel like I’ve already had enough PL football this season.
  14. Flea

    Ha Ha Ha

    Agreed. And for years I’ve been saying the calls they get are BS. Yesterday the calls against them were BS.

    Can he play CB? Good luck DJ.

    It's ridiculous. Utd have had a few of those go in their favour in the past year and today they have been the victim of it. How it can be handball when the ball is blasted at you from a few yards away and there is no chance to get out of the way is beyond me. Then the "off his line" call is even more pathetic. Theres got to be some common sense and it appears to have just disappeared. Keepers simply have no chance now if they can't even move ffs. If those calls had gone against us I would have been livid.

    LOUISA

    Sadly I'm starting to think this too. In theory we are sorted for two weeks today, but those numbers keep going up and talks of a second lockdown are getting louder. I can see a postponement to the start of the season at this rate, or the league having to go back on their statement about it not starting without fans.

    LOUISA

    I can image it is going to be an absolute nightmare to sort out. Bubbles will get more people in, however fitting them all in to get the maximum bums on seats, while also dealing with those that won't want a certain block, or will want an end seat, or are trying to get Non ST added to their group etc..., well it isn't going to be fun. I just hope she, and those at the club dealing with this, are not getting abuse off those who feel they have "poor" seats, or can't be placed with their mates etc and I hope people realise this isn't something the club or Louisa want to be doing really.
  19. Yes, I’m in the box as usual. I believe there are 5 of us in ours for the season ahead.
  20. A and some of B are normally part of the away support in the East Stand. B and C is between the away support and the half way line D is roughly on the half way line. E is just past the half way line towards the South F is further down approaching the patio area G will be either just above, or just below the patio, depending on what row you are on. H is the last section of the stand I believe. *Thats off the top of my head, it may be slightly off but how I recall the stand*

    And if it is and many take up the free kids ticket offer (I note the offer of 2 free child tickets is now set to 1), that could eat up most of the 1000 allocation.

    LOUISA

    Probably one of the best signings Mr B has ever sanctioned tbf.
  23. Incorrect - this time last season we had actually just lost 1-0 away to Notts County, having started the season quite well.
  24. I have a funny feeling this may well happen - in that away support may get taken away at ALL Conference clubs, at least to start with, to keep travel down and to also help keep people from being confined into small areas. I fear that restrictions will only increase in the next two weeks, which puts us just on top of the start date for the season. I can't see an easing of restrictions in the next few weeks at all, so think we may see numbers allowed decreased, or even a blanket ban on people being allowed back in.

    Macc

    I've read somewhere that the owner has tried to get the court hearing adjourned for like the 8th time, citing a buyer being close. This has been going on since January 2019. Obviously its just a stalling tactic that continues forever more. The same person who was apparently in the pipeline to buy Bury is the supposed saviour. Never nice for a club to go under, however Macc are a horrible club. I just hope if they are to go bust they do it as soon as possible so the other teams in the National know the state of play and can adapt to it. Worse case scenario is they start the season and the
