    https://www.the42.ie/sala-tragedy-legal-wrangle-4503673-Feb2019/ Cardiff have also reportedly questioned Willie McKay’s practice of trying to inflate transfer fees by fabricating interest in players from clubs. “It was us who put in the media about other clubs wanting you — West Ham, Everton etc — to create an interest on you that’s what we do,” Willie McKay wrote in a letter to Sala that has now been made public.

    Birmingham Away

    Birmingham didn't look anything special when I watched them earlier in the season, but we still managed to spectacularly capitulate as only we can. As for Saturday, who knows? Could easily be a meek defeat the way things are going

    Good point and really, the earlier the better seems to make complete logical sense with no downside

    I meant the first. If you get a cheap enough season ticket, you are always likely to rock up for a game. I have an Ireland season ticket. A lot of what I have watched over the last 2 years has been really quite awful, but because I have the ticket, I will go 99% of the time for fear of my money being wasted.

    They are more likely to turn up than someone who doesn't have a season ticket

    Spending 7 million on a player who doesn't play should not happen next summer. In fact I would like our biggest outlay to be on a centre half, who starts!!!!!

    Would we get away with dropping the price to 200 this summer and branding it as the "Mowbray revolution"? The "Mowbray slow build with lingering question marks over the defence" doesn't quite have the same ring to it

    Ya, true. Once you sell a season ticket, the person is always likely to turn up on a Saturday

    That would be very reasonable, I just wonder what would happen if it didn't have the desired affect and there wasn't a huge increase. I would say that maybe the people just aren't there one way or another, but then I think back to the Oxford game. I just wonder if 200 pound tickets and a 20,000 seater stadium would lead to a much better atmosphere.

    If it was a tenner a ticket every week, how big a crowd would we get?

    Ya, Roberston doesn't have many nights like last night. Tough day at the office for him for sure

    Kean, somehow still getting jobs in football

    Can we ban threads on this weasel? Personally I could do without seeing his stupid name pop up or hearing about what he is doing.

    I often wonder about this too. It seems we concede a lot of goals from long range as well. I remember a number of games where the excuse(for ant of a better word) as to why we lost/drew even though we were in control of the game was because the opposition scored a "worldie". It can't be because we are playing superstars every week. It must be down to a lack of closing down from us and the goalkeeper not expecting the shot. As for us not scoring any long rangers. Well the 2 players who try most if not all our long range efforts are Dack and Armstrong. Dack has scored a few and usually goes for placement over power. I would say Armstrong is by and large wasteful with long range efforts. Graham doesn't shoot from range. Reed decent enough at times, but again doesn't try it too often. Evans and Smallwood score around a goal a season each full stop. It probably highlights the lack of creativity across the squad

    Summer transfer window

    I don't know anything either apart from the fact he has only played League 1 football in England. He could still be a great signing, it's just adding him alone to the mix with Mulgrew, Lenihan and Rodwell doesn't fill me with the confidence that there will be a huge improvement defensively. I suppose we have some good young lads as well, but again I don't see them as certainties when it comes to fixing our defensive woes. As for Lenihan, it seems he picks up an injury every few months that keeps him out for a number of weeks. Could be unlucky or could be some underlying issues. Hard to know.
