Messi has won a record 6th Ballon d'Or, his stats from last season were brilliant.

Classy as ever, Ronaldo didn't turn up to the awards ceremony as it was clear either Messi or Van Dijk would win it.

I didn't realise we only need to finish 3rd. 😮

Jesus - England really have no excuse for not progressing.

 

Still, I don't feel its a given we will beat either Czech Rep or Croatia. We will have to play well and keep mistakes to a minimum. Any complacency and they can still do us.

 

Finishing 2nd in the Group gives us a much easier path anyway 😉 

The winner of our Group D plays 2nd place from the insane Group F of Portugal, Germany and France. 

The 2nd place of our group plays the 2nd place of Group E of Spain, Sweden and Poland......

How come Sheff wed’s owner appears to be getting rodgered for selling the stadium to himself but it was declared ok for Derby? Not read into it but that’s how it looks on the face of it....

The Sheff Wed owner doesn’t sit on the EFL board. Mel Morris does/did

My own interpretation is that Derby bought their own stadium, and then spent the money.

Sheffield Wednesday spent the money, and then a year later bought their own stadium to try and cover up the shortfall, but recorded it as being sold the year before.

Both are dodgy to me, but Sheff Wed literally tried to con the EFL by fudging the books.

Yes I think this is it; I read it has something to do with the year they put the sale through their accounts, although I can't find the piece now.

Also Derby are being looked into again so that's not necessarily over.

I don’t think Derby, Reading and Aston Villa are out of the woods yet. Think they are anxiously looking at the Wednesday case.

"Bamford is roundly booed for his slightly over-the-top reaction." 😂

He just can't help himself, can he.

From the Huddersfield v Leeds game, which I'm not sure I actually want Leeds to win even if it helps us.

    • I mean those are some pretty dreadful collective ratings for the players. I think it tells a pretty accurate story. Individually, players were not at the races and didn't give a toss on Saturday. But the changes to get us back into the game were ultimately more diabolical in terms of taking action. Don't quite know why the Gazette have decided to go along with the whole 'more forwards but somehow still no chances' piece that Woody came out with. You don't automatically solve your creative problems with more forwards and you certainly don't solve them with strikers like Britt and Gestede.
    • Just want to say good luck tomorrow lads, you have a busy week ahead. Hopefully will be watching it all play out on BT Sport.  
    • End of this season players will be leaving  has their contracts come to an end. Other players will also be leaving wanting away and will be fetching hardly any money to the kitty. Woodgate will more than likely stay on because he is one of the cheapest about and although he has managerial status, seriously the backroom boys will still be running the show. Possible drop down a division losing loads of turnstile funds. I reckon in one word I would say the coffers will be empty and "Survival" is the medium/long term vision here.  
    • I don’t understand how people can say that Gibson is not a footballing man. He’s been involved in the game for nearly three and a half decades. If you think he’s not a good footballing man well fair enough that’s your opinion but he is definitely time served at this point which qualifies him as a footballing man in my opinion.
    • I have to say I echo what @Changing Times and @p_mards have said in regards to appointments in key areas. In my opinion the biggest threat to having a consistent long-term vision is Gibson himself. He is not a footballing man and thus the decisions he makes are by and large poor. The sooner he relinquishes a bit of control over the footballing decisions the better. Getting a director of football into the club would be a good start. As we would then have a football person making football decisions.
