Re: Paul Trollope - Sacked by Rovers

Firstly may I say how sorry I feel for the Trollope being sacked just before Christmas, although I guess any football manager (Hughton, Allardyce I'm looking at you) may see it as a blessing in disguise. The chance for a relaxing Chrimbo with family rather than thinking about training on Christmas d...

Re: Money money money

Regarding QPR, don't forget that they are owned by some of the richest people in the world. Look at their transfer spendings (on loans as well as permanent deals) and their wage bill and they will be on a par with teams with parachute payments, likewise Cardiff (although they have spent all their mo...

Re: Money money money

I would also point out that I find it hard to blame the players. If I were offered my yearly salary as a weekly wage I couldn't say no. I'm reminded of the story of Seth Johnson joining Leeds United. Seth and his agent went to a meeting with Peter Ridsdale. His agent had already told Seth he was exp...

Re: Money money money

Football finances are in a mess, from the top to the bottom. We see the biggest teams in the land with billions of Pounds of debt. Billions. The business of football simply isn't sustainable. The problem with changing it is to make the first step. No one wants to be the first to impose a wage cap an...

Re: The Board. Really good thread, highly recommended.

Sweet Jesus. Really? How about we all put our hands in our pockets and give the club a couple of hundred quid each. That should help a little. Expecting the board members to spend more of there own money running the club is a bit much! They are just a group of fans like any other, the only differenc...

Re: Goal music suspended!!!!

Forever, That does actually make a bit of sense, your idea of having the home and away fans next to each other. Maybe it is something the board should look at. I'm not sure what the plans are regarding building the new grandstand but it will be interesting to see how the atmosphere is affected if we...

Re: Goal music suspended!!!!

Firstly a huge well done to the club, firstly for recognising the terrible atmosphere, secondly for trying to change it and thirdly for being so quick to listen to the fans views. Moving on to Forever's post. I really don't see how allowing home fans in to the away end will help. There aren't enough...

Wayne Carlisle

So come on people. Who? Where?
If he's leaving now I'm guessing it's an initial loan to be made permanent in January.
Any ideas on fee? I'm hoping it's a lot to prize my favourite player away.

Re: Danny Senda?

So what's the verdict on his performance last night? I see he lasted the full 90 minutes but there is no mention of him in the match report. On the subject of trialists. Does anyone know what happened with Bas Savage and the other lad (I forget who it was but there was someone else at the same time)...
