    Maddison not going to Man U

    I'm sure the money he'd make would be tempting, so it may come down to what his ambitions are. Man U are not a "has-been" club exactly - with their financial clout they can buy their way out of trouble, but therein lies the problem : there "has been" no coherent plan in terms of recruitment or player development since Fergie left, as well as a run of poor managers. So for Madders the choice may come down to whether he would be happy to take the money to be in a dysfunctional team and club, or become the best footballer he can be.

    Interesting comments by Guardiola

    This kind of post is very unhelpful. When I worked in the Civil Service we used to say : "Don't confuse me with the facts, I've already made up my mind."

    The 'ammers

    According to the BBC website Wet Spam are playing Snoddy on the left. How is that going? Remember all the posts about inverted wingers and how Snodders shouldn't be played on the right?

    Amadou off?

    I'm stumped by this post. I thought that I could rely on HC being a miserablist , but this seems almost positive... or is it ironic?

    TWTD Having Yet Another Meltdown.

    When I was at the real University in Nottingham (decades ago) we used to go to a pub in Gotham City which was full of rabid Forest fans. None of us were Forest fans and it was hard to endure, despite the beer being fine.

    Amadou off?

    I don't feel let down. This time round I am proud that we are trying to "Do Different" in looking for another way to run our club. "Look at Sheffield United" you say. "Look at Villa" I reply. They may stay up, but they have almost made an Art Form out of burning piles of money.

    Ban Football Chat in the Office?

    Why not pop over to Paderborn with TiL 1010 to watch Sir Benny in action?

    Banter today

    That's because in the cold he wears a beanie had with corks dangling from it.

    Tainted Title

    Liverpool have spent a lot of money to assemble their team, it's just that they've spent it well - or at least much better than the others in the "top six". Why is no one calling out these teams for the huge sums they are spending to then be called "in transition". "In transition " to what? Manure spent £130 million on two defenders to be 30 points behind the leaders. It is unsustainable, or at least I hope it is.

    Tonights relegation games

    Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be a "basket case" in the Prem this year, so whoever goes down is likely to have a strong team in the Championship next season, unless it is Villa and they get fined to death.

    When he said minus 87 was he referring to his IQ?

    I Wonder What Ben Kensell Would Make Of This ?

    I would like to see a Championship side go bust in the next twelve months. Surely it is only a matter of time. It would take the heat off our owners, and would go some way to vindicating their current plan.

    Duda done deal according to father 🙏

    What do we want to sign someone who's 33 in June for? There's no chance of a profit from selling him on. No ambition. Will that do you?

    Players Values

    Why would anyone pay much for three members of the worst defence in the Division?

    Norwich vs Preston Match Thread

    The decision to extend Agent Lambert's contract by 5 years already seems to have been a strange piece of business. He had 18 months left and they could have waited until the end of the season. There was no way he was going to walk.

    Roberts

    Yeh, just another loan signing who'll never come to anything, like that Harry Kane chap. I mean what's he done since he was here?

    Not unlucky. Not clever.

    We find ourselves still in the Championship with money in the bank , no debt and a healthy cashflow. We haven't had much luck while in the Premiership - eg we dropped out just as the Sky money came in. I'd say we'd have fared better last year, when there were some basket cases in the Prem. This season the Prem looks to be a stronger division.

    Is it Lowestoft Reserves?

    Update from the downtrodden: Warnock is our king!

    Did somebody slip some vodka into PL's post match orange squash, as this reads like the ramblings of someone who's plastered?

    Fire sale

    Given how much Villa have paid for absolute donkeys recently valuing Pukki at £12 million is an insult to Pukki.

    Is Tim Krul our best keeper - EVER?

    I think it's impossible to compare Goalies from different eras, but we've usually had good keepers. You have to feel sorry for Keelan's understudy - Keelan wouldn't train all week and would still crawl onto the pitch and play. I think what can be said is that Krul fits with our plan of finding underpriced gems. We took a punt on him and it's paid off.

    Self-sustaining model

    Get ready for 5 years of greed and selfishness.

    *****Official match thread v Saints*****

    Now we've got our playmaker on ( aka Tettey) we look a different team.

    Amazon buffering

    I usually have about 2.5 mB and it's working fine.
