VB have you heard whether we're moving any closer in deciding who Gibson wants from the shortlist?.

 

I was hoping Hull would struggle this season so Bruce would be sacked and become available but that's definitely not going to happen any time soon with the way they've started this season.

Venus says we're nowhere near good enough to threaten the top end of the table:

Yet Burnley and Blackpool are battling near the top with a weaker squad than ours but the difference is their players are far better organised and hungry for success than ours. Defeatism at its worst by Venus.

What's so shocking about that?. I couldn't care less that he's a Geordie as he's a very good manager.

 

disagree mate.

 

have you seen his stats?

 

He aint done anything as a manager except runner up winner in 2002...

 

Not for me

 

 

got Birmingham promoted, kept wigan up then finished high up the season after, yes sunderland didnt go well but he never really had a chance. just got hull promoted and is doing very well with them too.

    • Interesting... I did hear the Jordan comments but don't fully understand the technicalities of the whole Derby becoming debt-free and returning stronger thing. Was news to me that the £45m thing was *** (I guess Simon may have heard that from Steve himself...?) I just hope it doesn't dissolve into "Boro are trying to kill Derby" and we get piled on... which is the narrative they're clearly desperate to create. We all know what football fans and pundits are like and most people won't read or understand the details. I'm a Boro fan and I still admit to not fully getting some of it. 
    • Check out the love between Crooks & Payero. Makes me warm and fuzzy inside.
    • The club themselves probably won't come out and make any public statements about the ongoing thing because it gives their side something to argue with. When the Derby fans picked up on the FMTTM post, immediately it was sent to the administrators so they were aware of it. They want the narrative to change and as much as I'd hate to see Derby go out of business, they are playing dirty from a very risky position. The fans are desperate, they're still messaging our fan groups for us to do something about it. I think they're being left in the dark about the entire situation by both sides though. Right now, going by what Simon Jordan said the other day, us and Wycombe are waiting for an offer from the Derby end to try and settle the problem. Also, listening to him speak about it made it sound like the administrators are just trying to do their best to make the club a good asset to sell. The whole thing about them using the government's COVID scheme to push back their debts then putting the club into administration to write them off was seemingly just as dirty a tactic as Morris has been getting up to all along to essentially give the club a way of coming back significantly stronger with any half-decent investor. Walking into a debt-free football club sounds like Christmas day which is exactly why Mr. Ashley is sniffing around and is even willing to make a deal with us to get it done. Gibson looks like he's trying to make sure it's not as easy as that and if they want to do it, they'll have to give us something and quick.
    • Thanks for the welcome. No idea where you get Colchester from (lol), live just outside Stokesley, 20 minutes from the Riverside Stadium.
