You're way too cynical for me these days Foogle.  I have to be careful to make sure that this forum doesn't bring me down.

I know, I can be a right grouch sometimes!

I'm only a youngster so don't remember anything pre-McClaren, the only time we've really been in the ascendancy in my football viewing lifetime has been Schteeve and Karanka. To be fair I'm not even being cynical, I love being the club that teams hate to play against the Riverside being viewed as a hard away day, if we had an identity I'd like it to be "built on a solid base".

that's what Big Jack's team was built on but they scored goals as well

Another day closer to the start of the new season and still not a single outfield signing if you discount the young players who have been brought in. Someone reassure me that it's going to get better?

Cheers CT I’ll have a looking when I’ve got time.

Just seen a few people saying Gibson pockets the transfer fees when talking about the possible fry transfer. With the club making a loss most years he would of had to give himself a big wage/bonus to do so.

No he doesn't pocket the transfer fees.  The total Directors Emoluments for Gibson O'Neill in the last set of accounts was just over £1m and the highest payment to a director was something between 400-500k I think.  I haven't gone through each years accounts of course but I'd be more than a little surprised if it was much different to that year on year and that's Gibson O'Neill as opposed to just MFC anyway.  I think the total amount owed by the club to the group was over £90m.

Why don’t you just use the emoji tool on the side. Unless you are doing it purposely so they don’t get the ‘rep’ point for want of a better phrase 

I’m not happy with fact that that silly score count has returned 

 

 

I will only use them when a dislike button is added.  But I really do believe in replying to a person's post to show my appreciation of it.  So here you go 🖕🖕🖕

The fewer players that we try to sign then the fewer times we can have them stolen from under our noses and get really annoyed about it.  That has to be better.

Edit: I'm not sure what's gone on here...

We need to find our new Villa, our arch nemesis as it were...

Seems to be forest. Almost every player I've seen us credited with an interest in this summer also seem to be interesting forest, including the two benfica players they've already signed.

The start of the Robbo era for me, and i agree totally with all this our style/identity has a changed manager to manager to suit the one or two decent players we have had.  To be fair what team does has a playing idenity bar the big boys, it does my head in when people say *** like play the west ham or Tottenham way what way, a glorified 1 or 2 season purple patch 40 years ago.  I too loved going into games under Karanka thinking theres no way we losing here, bag the first goal and the games ours, ideally would like a few local lads thrown in, but the solid base has been and probably will be the our best option.

I thought he’d picked up an injury. Not too fussed, we’ve got “fan favourite” Mejias as backup.

    • Well very pleased to see England close the day on 156-3. Very controlled and patient batting for most of the day from Root and Denly have gotten us to this stage. Stokes in the last hour of the day came into bat at 5 in survival mode and made 2 runs (not out) off 50 balls. The first session of tomorrow's play will decide the outcome of this test match (and the Ashes). If Stokes and Root can survive the first 8 overs of play unscathed. At which point the new ball is available to Australia. They will then have to contend with the new ball and the threats that come with it. If they can get to lunch unscathed after the new ball I think that is when the test becomes ours to lose. At this stage I'd happily take England scoring 30 runs all session if it meant losing no wickets. It will also be England's highest ever run chase if we are successful.
    • Our problem has been that we just don't score goals, we've been amongst the lowest scorers in the championship both pre and post our 1 season recently in the PL. This season, although it's early on, seems to be going the same way. While Britt does get goals, he's not what you'd call prolific, we've been set up as a defensive team for a few years now through different managers and scoring has been an added bonus to not conceding goals.
    • No worse than some of the goals our players have missed, and he also scored today. Hugill has scored 3 goals so far this season. That's more than our top scorers. Imagine if he'd scored at the same rate for us as he is now - we might have gone up! Not sure what we do to our strikers - they always seem to do well for everyone else but do less well for us. Bamford a possible exception as he did well for us, although he's really banging them in for Leeds at the moment.   
    • Great read 👍 Think I've seen some Twitter posts from you in the past. Keep it up!
    • https://mobile.twitter.com/SkyBetChamp/status/1165369720008314885 i’m quite impressed by this from hugill. How has he done this?
