  1. There's a huge difference between two questions that could be implied by this question. 1) Is this squad capable of finishing in the top 6? 2) Is this one of the best 6 squads in the league? Personally I think you'd have to be blind or stupid to think the answer to the first is anything other than YES. You don't have to be one of the best 6 sides in the league on paper, or even one of the top half of sides in the league on paper, to get out of it, let alone just finish in the top 6. The biggest ingredient to success in this league is having a good manager who can put together a
  2. Rothwell been our most dangerous player. Of course he has been taken off.
  3. Please keep events in your bedroom to yourself, it's only polite.
  4. Yep. They were massively wrong though. Branthwaite wasn't looking at it but decided to stop anyway because the lad had moved beyond the line by the time he turned around.
  5. Harsh, but I do think he has been off for a few games now and been lucky to avoid criticism for a few mistakes recently. Partly because of his reputation, partly because they mostly weren't noticeable unless you're paying attention.
  6. I feel really strange about that goal. In that, I didn't really feel any different to the moments before it. It's not even an empty, barely care, resigned feeling like I've had before recently, just an absolute lack of reaction. Don't think I've ever had this reaction before.
  7. Jesus...anybody able to confirm in any way whether 'No.' was literally all he said in response to that? And that it's not someone removing the rest of the answer? If that's literally all he said then either he despises Crooke, or we are surely only one, maybe two defeats in the next couple of games from him resigning.
  8. I gather they play from the back, but I'm saying they'll be aware of the pitch standards and I expect them to be more tactically astute than our mob and adapt. I also expect Tony will over-complicate things, it's his way.
  9. Probably not as we are likely to try to play football on it still, judging by some past efforts. Whereas I imagine Watford will be more sensible about it and adapt.
  10. In fairness to Sharpe, it's clear from the interview with Mowbray last week that he has been asking him questions Mogga doesn't like lately. It was a very defensive interview in which he pointed the finger pretty directly at Sharpe for having the temerity to ask questions about his decisions. He is far from a terrier of a journalist, but from that and some of the language he chooses in his articles sometimes, I'm pretty sure he is on the cynic side of the bridge right now. Just probably being careful of losing the LT their occasionally exclusive access.
  11. I think the reason they haven't been crowing about digital plans is they simply don't have any to show, Chaddy. I'd save yourself the wasted anticipation of seeing them. It's clear they wanted to sneak this under the radar, at least for the time being.
  12. Ok so, I'm not going to read the full plans. But I'm curious about them and others say they've read them. It barely seems to have been touched on through this discussion, which has centred over other issues around it, but I'd really like to know... So sure, I'm being lazy, but could someone who has read the plans give some kind of breakdown of what facilities are proposed for the new site? Ideally contrasted to what facilities are already in place on the old site (or maybe yet another person may be able to give that). I think it would be nice to have a sense of what actual facilities
  13. Got to admit, the training on Ewood thing made zero sense to me, but now with this announcement some dots connect as you say, whether rightly or not.
  14. Stinks to the high heavens that one, and a recurrence of the notion here stinks even more. How was that kind of conflict of interest not illegal?
  15. Probably gonna hire half of the reduced site out as a leisure centre.....
  16. On what basis though are you giving them the benefit of the doubt? In light of what happened at Coventry with 3 of the same key personnel. Asking, not having a go.
