  1. Football has changed drastically over a very short period, the money involved and the clamour for ownership of certain clubs for financial gain is overwhelming. I get decisions taken by non football people but I don’t get decisions by those who know nothing else. We could say well they have loved this surely they know best. But we could also back that up with a life of football will leave you with no other grasp on reality, let’s face it “ all of ours reality “. So this decision to appoint Lawrence is beyond me, Rooney you have got this wrong. He’s never displayed leadership on the field, sulky, head down, at times disinterested in tracking back or even getting forward on some occasions. The drink drive incident is still fresh in everyone’s memories, so I see no positives in this announcement. I actually think it’s a smack in the faces for fans, no respect for us in a way, I accept some may argue that’s nonsense. With what the club has gone through, the whole Country as well but particularly with our failed takeovers and lack of information from the club I see no real care or respect for us the supporters from within. Todays game is £10 to watch on RamsTV, now I e been giving the club my money each month right through the pandemic, still not had a penny back and they ask me to pay to watch it. A lovely chance to show their appreciation……lost. Still no takeover, i accept they are being quiet due to past failings but please don’t forget us, you can sell walk away but we can’t do that. Don’t forget the fans, this club is going to need us more than ever in what is going to be a potentially worse season than last unless drastic investment arises. Personally and the point of this post, we need a Graham Shinnie as Captain on the pitch and maybe even a Shinnie type ownership…..a safe pair of hands that you can trust, not a troubled young man with potential that he consistently fails to show.
  2. I believe the club do know
  3. I am sure there is something that states of an appeal is lodged then the penalty on that appeal can only be a financial penalty and not a double jeopardy points reduction?? Someone may be able to clear that up
  4. Let me be clear here, I am not calling for Rooney to go, not at all..... But, what you have said above is absolutely not correct, if ever you wanted to change a manager then now is the time. Masses of players will walk out the door, whoever is in the seat will have to build from nothing. There is rationale around getting another Manager in who has experience in building a side, something Rooney has simply never ever done. What I think absolutely needs to happen is a better back room staff around Rooney who am fill those gaps where his experience and knowledge is zero.
  5. Brentford operate on a totally different model to us, well publicised statistical policy on recruitment. Whilst this has proved financially successful it hasn’t got them promotion ( yet ) but I’ve no doubt it will. The policy also means they will always sell one major asset each season, we haven’t always done that and have tended to hold on to players running down their value. Your analysis is pretty hard to argue with, Brentford are run so much better than ourselves in many ways.
  6. If we weren’t playing Wednesday last game then out of our hands would be the best scenario as we only mess it up. I just don’t think we have the bottle for this anymore
  7. I still think it’s going to be in our hands as Luton will beat Rotherham or hold them to a draw but we are that bad I could see us getting spanned by Wednesday
  8. Agree with everything you said with the exception of “ cash in “ , not sure what he’s worth to be honest as we paid for an emerging talent that never came to fruition. If his wage is what I hear it is then cash out might be a better term, he’s always dissapointed and is clearly a very complex man
  9. It might sound simple but we can’t beat an egg at this current time and I’m really not sure anyone at the club from players and the management team have the bottle for Saturday
  10. My point is over the last 13 games even a couple of draws or just one win would have left this looking much healthier. Wednesday are the team I am concerned about, if it goes down to last day I would not be hopeful
  11. Been in our hands for the last 13 games so I don’t hold out too much hope, shambles from top to bottom
  12. Were you one of the fans saying that Cocu will come good, he needs to settle in? Or were you in the other corner
  13. Hanging on to that totally useless waste of space Cocu, that football is not for the championship with bang average players. Needed to go so much quicker I wouldn’t argue about Rooney and the jury being out but for me it’s far too early.
