I do actually care when I see a bunch of *** holes gang up on a kid on here, I'll give you that - but if you think I care what the likes of you and others think of me then you really are putting yourselves on pedastles you don't belong on. 

 

 

Enough already frankly I am fed up with this bickering as I am sure others are.

This is not a appreciation/don't like RS thread or vies versa.

Can we move on there are far more important things, boy I am sweating buckets at the moment so possibly there is some sunstroke going on within the forum.

Moderating can be such fun...………………………...NOT!

Personally I think we should have a thread devoted to just bickering. Could have someone just start off a totally daft thing and watch a huge argument break out over whether garlic sauce belongs on a kebab or something

Our wage bill must have taken a huge cut now? Downing, Braithwaite, Flint, Hugill, Mikel, Leadbitter, VLP... probably missing some others. 

 

I'm still cautiously optimistic we'll get 4-5 in and finish the window with a 'meh, pretty happy with that to be fair.' 

Our total staff (Players, Staff and matchday staff) costs for the 17/18 season were approximately £65 Million. I wouldn't be surprised if over the course of the 18/19 season we managed to reduced those costs by £12 Million - £20 Million.

But that is conjecture on my part. We won't know for certain on that until the next set of accounts are released.

Again an extra bit of conjecture the players we have released and sold this summer, plus the loanees going back I wouldn't be surprised to see that we have trimmed another £8 Million - £15 Million off the wage bill. (We won't see those figures for about 18 Months).

To add onto those reductions we have also seen Pulis and his backroom staff leave. I'm sure someone on here mentioned Pulis was our highest paid manager. So I'd imagine his wages plus his backroom staff wages would total another £3 Million - £5 Million (again speculation).

Don’t think I’ve had hostility when passing on info. Not really bothered anyway.

Braithwaite wasn’t all bad. Didn’t take what he was due for his loyalty payment. 

€5m we got

So he wasn't the villain people were trying to make him out to be - good to hear

My mate and I once argued all the way from Newcastle to Leeds about whether or not a shop-bought cheese sandwich should literally just be bread and cheese, or whether it was acceptable for it to contain mayo, marg, etc. Might provide good kindling for a 'petty arguments' thread. Other ideas: Ford or Vauxhall, should we ban buy-to-let landlords, what do you put on your chips, etc.

 

Re transfers: Now we've culled half a dozen high earners from the squad (without harming our matchday prospects, I'd have to say), it's time to see what our legendary recruitment team have been up to this summer. Over to you, chaps.

Didn’t ever think he was as bad as Pulis made him sound, any other manager and I think he would have done well, can’t blame that sort of player for not wanting to play for Pulis though

Me neither - he's probably done us a favour by going out on loan - he'd probably be worthless now if he'd stayed with pulis

A conservative estimate would be that we've cut around £200k per week in playing staff wages (I think it's probably closer to £300k personally) since the end of the season, over the course of a year this is a little north of £10m.

 

Like you say, Pulis + staff have to be taken off that as well with Woody's team almost definitely being on a fraction of their Pulis hired counterparts. In theory we should now be in a pretty healthy financial position especially when the fees received are taken into account.

The ultimate arguement would surely, be whether you put milk in before the boiling water or after when making a cup of tea.

Is that up for debate? The liquid has to be boiling to allow the tea to infuse. Milk is added afterwards,

Would you put milk in a teapot?

 

Next.......

    • 1: Team and formation? Same same. Can't change after such a showing. I'd like to see Tav central with Johnson on the wing but I can't drop any of Sav, Morsy and Howson after wednesday. 2: Is it good to change a winning team? Depends on circumstances but generally no. 3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy? Think he will give it a bit of a rest and avoid a card. 4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance? Yes. He'll bag a brace. 5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... It's certainly looking better now. 6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard? Not even a contest. Maiden all the way. 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? I think we can, but I'm afraid we'll just miss out. 8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)? No idea. But my guess is Kebano.
    • The preparation for a specific match is probably a bit more important than we think. That is also what separates the good managers from the bad. The ability to drill into the team how to beat an upcoming opponent. We were woefully prepared under Woodgate and that has changed dramatically under a more proven manager. Granted he also gets outsmarted or gets his tactics all wrong, but I'm not going to deny that a lack of proper preparation with the team had an adverse effect on how we dealt with Birmingham. It was a woeful performance though so I'm going to split it 50/50 between inconsitency and lack of preparation.
    • we are inconsistent but we have Big J back in midfield.  first game back and it was like he never went away motm by a mile. when some of the younger lads are struggling to pass 5 yards he gets the ball and slips his markers carries the ball miles, plays in key passes making it look easy. he surely has lifted squad coming back into the team.  results will improve now. wouldnt be surprised to go on another winning run now. think we'll beat norwich to. they rode their luck last time out. we'll have them this time. blackburn have fell away we can win that one to.
    • Need to get back to winning ways at home so massive game and certainly no sentiments for former Boro associates. We are hot and cold with results so need to be hot, hot, hot again!
