  1. Oh I agree, my point was more that I don’t think that a lot of the LT comments are a million miles away from what I hear every week.
  2. Though if ‘99 had said he did like to film the game on his phone, you’d be all ‘I just like to watch my team in the moment, why do you need to film?’ 😁
  3. You say that tomphil, but take away the Sharpe element of it and I hear plenty of that kind of stuff at Ewood. ‘Young team’, ‘Crap fans’, ‘no passion’, ‘small club’, ‘fans to blame if we do a Bury’, ‘owners put in a fortune’, ‘who you gonna get better than Mowbray?’, ‘we’ve no money FFS’ (though they’ve just said the owners put in a fortune, so go figure!).
  4. Needs filming on a phone as ‘people want personal memories’. Hmm, if only there was an organ of the human body that could store such things instead…
  5. Makes me laugh. He’s pretty much saying his own eyes told him it was fecking crap… but because the xG says so we’d *actshully* performed well!
  6. You said repeatedly on the Waggott thread that they are doing/have done good things, that we can’t survive without them and things are changing behind the scenes. Today you are saying you want them out of the club - bit of an odd standpoint if we can’t survive without them.
  7. So you haven’t been repeatedly telling us how things are now going to change for the better under these owners -even though on that post this morning you stated that you want them to leave?! No wonder folk can’t make head nor tail of where you are coming from..
  8. That’s a real commitment Jim and there were 800 others in the away end with you at £30 a pop on a horrible night with it on the red button. And people talk about ‘passionate Geordies’.
  9. Hang on, so you want the owners out? So what has this sustained campaign of yours these past couple of months been all about then?
  10. That works if there’s a limited amount of articles you can read for free before it shuts you off (like how the LT website is set up now). But if they are setting up a model like The Times, for example, you can’t read anything without signing up.
  11. Only quality journalism can have a working business model that includes a paywall - The Times, The Athletic etc in the UK, the big US newspapers. People buy subscriptions for ‘long reads’, in-depth investigative reporting, features, magazines supplements etc etc. The LT is obviously in dire straits with the collapse of sales of physical papers, especially at local level and they mustn’t be able to wash their face with online ads. But the industry has structurally changed and low brow papers and small, stripped out organisations like the LT just won’t get folk taking out subscriptions. As an example, The Sun tried a paywall… lasted about 6 months. There is nothing the LT offers that you can’t get for free on Lancs Live… perhaps the LT won’t exist at all as a stand alone title in a couple of years (it largely doesn’t already with no HQ, a shared editorial operation with Bolton/Bury papers and sub editing in South Wales).
  12. What are you disagreeing with? Oxford proved that a feel good occasion, party atmosphere and a tenner to get in will get folk in. A normal mid table game in winter won’t be doing that. Your post is contradicting itself, Oxford proved that there’s no mass hatred of Venky’s keeping folk away, just a crap team and atmosphere… and we know who to blame for those two realities.
