  1. Barnes has been poor since return from injury and compounds that with petulance. Hernandez constantly doubling back to ensure his crosses and passes have the greatest possible chance of being cut out. Both full backs so high but no attacking returns and constantly exposed. Sara being wasted. Rowe one of the only who makes things happen is left on the bench as a lesson?
  2. He needs to get his proposals over to you ASAP for you to sign off! What’s he been doing?!
  3. He's definitely into his football. Arsenal season ticket holder and plays 8-a-side every Sunday, so it means more coming from a big 6 person to be anti the super league.
  4. It didn’t work out but if true… £27 million Real signing - love the ambition.
  5. I don’t know enough about sporting directors individually. But someone forward thinking, track record of youth development, exciting football, community values and happy to work on a budget. If we want all of those, anyone fully proven will be out of our reach so we would be looking for someone who it is a step up. Whether that is in size of club or going into the main role for the first time I don’t know. But I like the idea of pinching Man City back room staff like Leicester are with their manager. (Or similar ilk) take someone from the proper pinnacle of football but stepping up from head of development into director.
  6. I would assume we don’t want to be dishing out Pukki level wages this year. But we can give some big promotion bonuses. Internet says he is on around £70,000 a week. Maybe we could stretch to half that and bonuses, so a big cut - but if sold is he going to get a 70k contract elsewhere? Perhaps one of those deals where Everton cover some of his wages for the remainder of his Everton deal in order to get most of the wages off their books could just about make it viable? In other news. Has anyone ever noticed footballers earn a lot?
  7. Pretty sure he mentioned getting things wrong up front in his interviews. As mentioned elsewhere he is distracting and drawing criticism away from club and team onto himself. Fair play, fingers crossed it creates some space for them to get in with the job.
  8. So on the Klose comment. He is saying Tzolis, Rashica and Sara all haven't activated parts of their deal yet. If they are all more like £5 million signings their success/failure feels a little better.
  9. We had a poor season, but will revert to our mean. Which is upwards! We are still going to have the squad and spending power the envy of most of the championship and a host of young talents who will improve. It's not all doom and gloom.
  10. And another: Neil Adams: (panting) Stuart, wait up! I can't keep up with you at this pace. Stuart Webber: (smirking) Sorry, Neil. But I've got to reach the summit first. Adams: (confused) What are you talking about? We're a team. We agreed to stick together and help each other reach the top. Webber: (shrugging) I know, but I never really cared about that. I just wanted to be the first to reach the summit. And now's my chance. Adams: (angrily) You can't be serious, Stuart. We've been training and preparing for this climb for months. And now you're just going to leave me behind? Webber: (coldly) Sorry, Neil. But I'm not going to let anything stand in my way. Not even our friendship. Adams: (shocked) I can't believe you would do this, Stuart. You're supposed to be my friend. Webber: (chuckles) Friendship is overrated. I'm here to win. Adams: (firmly) I won't let you do this, Stuart. I'm not going to let you betray me like this. Webber: (sarcastically) Oh, please. You can't stop me. I'm already ahead of you and I'm not looking back. Adams: (determined) Fine. If that's how you want to play it, then I'll beat you to the top on my own. Webber: (laughing) Good luck with that. You'll never catch me.
  11. I've been playing with Artificial Intelligence and asked it to write me a script... Chris Hughton: Well, this is quite a predicament we find ourselves in. Todd Cantwell: (grumpily) No kidding. Why did we have to get stuck in this stupid blizzard? Lee Croft: (drunk) Hey, at least we have each other for company. And some good ol' whisky to keep us warm. (takes a swig from a flask) Hughton: (sighing) I suppose that's one way to look at it. But we need to stay focused and come up with a plan to get out of here. Cantwell: (rolling his eyes) Oh great, another one of your boring lectures on being responsible. Croft: (laughing) Relax, Cantwell. We're not going anywhere anytime soon. Might as well enjoy the ride. Hughton: (sternly) Now is not the time for jokes, Croft. We need to stay sober and come up with a plan to get help. Cantwell: (sarcastically) Oh joy. Another one of Hughton's brilliant ideas. Hughton: (ignoring Cantwell's comment) We need to check our supplies and see what we have to work with. And we should try to find some shelter and build a fire to keep warm. Croft: (swaying) Yeah, yeah. Whatever you say, boss. Cantwell: (sighing) Great. Just what I needed. To be stuck in a blizzard with a boring leader and a drunk idiot. Hughton: (ignoring Cantwell's comment) Come on, let's get to work. We need to stay strong and stay positive if we're going to make it through this.
