    I would like to submit this non football related question, but one that I feel on a human level should be asked.
    Mel, how are you and how is your health?

    I think I have a sliding scale of every team from 1-92, so that I will always want one team to win when in a neutral situation.
    That said, it’s often who I want to lose more that dictates my choice rather than the other way around.

    There is an additional point that playing Cashin would exacerbate our problem, as he is currently not a player classed as a “professional”.  Therefore, by playing him, we’d be making life more difficult to bring in additional bodies.

    My grandsons junior team. I haven't missed a game since he started in the u8's and he's coming up to 16 this year. Tbh I get more enjoyment from this than the professional game these days, until you have experienced a November away game v Buxton at Sterndale Moor Quarry in gale force wind and driving rain you haven't lived

    I can't bring myself to hate Keogh.
    He gave everything he'd got in every game he played for us.
    Totally bizarre and avoidable end to his career with us aside, he never left anything out there.

    The one thing that really irritates me is that the away team’s national anthem is booed at Wembley.  It’s incredibly disrespectful.

    Well, Italy have just made it to the final of the Euros with a couple of centre backs with a combined age of 70, so as a short term solution, they might just be able to do a job.
    If they actually sign.

    maydrakin reacted to 86 Hair Islands in EFL Verdict   
    Why are some folk so unable, unwilling or both, to assimilate a few simple facts concerning these charges? It's no small wonder that fans from other clubs have a poor opinion of us now, when some of our own fans, who ought to be better informed, are themselves the first to jump on any sniff of perceived wrongdoing. What possible benefit is there in wilfully ignoring what we know to be true in favour presupposing guilt at every corner? We've even got folk using the fact that we've not submitted the new accounts inside 48 hours as the latest stick with which to thrash the club. It simply beggars belief.
    For the umpteenth time, there were two charges; one related to the valuation of our stadium and was summarily dismissed by the DC; the other related to our amortisation policy which was signed off on and approved under legal accounting standards by independent auditors, the auditors regulatory body, the DC and the ducking EFL themselves, the latter several times over a period of years. The amortisation policy charge was also initially dismissed by the DC for the aforementioned reasons. This left the EFL so desperate to save face that they appealed the decision, the outcome of which was predicted by myself and numerous others on this very thread: a small fine in order to secure the token win they need to maintain any ducking credibility at all AND NO POINTS DEDUCTION. 
    At this point, I very much doubt that even the EFL will be willing to risk further embarrassment. They can kid themselves this paltry fine vindicates two years of unwarranted charges and appeals and get back to their principal role as lapdogs to Sky and the Premiership whilst paying themselves inflated salaries for doing so. As for the DC, I strongly suspect that they only agreed to what is a nominal fine in order to save the EFL from falling into further disrepute and to allow us to finally emerge from under an endless series of unfair and damaging embargos and to prevent the EFL from continuing what has become a spiteful and unwarranted campaign against a club whose chairman quite rightly questioned their business acumen. In doing so, they have vindicated Mel's opinion in spades, though the crushing irony of this has unsurprisingly escaped the EFL's notice and who will doubtless be celebrating spending millions to secure a £100k fine for their members' coffers.
    If, as I strongly suspect, the EFL do not appeal this sanction, I think we will 'be the bigger man' and simply take the £100k hit in order to allow us to return to football matters rather than spending every waking hour addressing the embittered ramblings and actions of a so-called professional body that seems more intent on undermining its membership than serving it.

    But the problem is that we are competing with clubs with ludicrous parachute payments giving them an unfair advantage. Clubs have no choice but to gamble in some way in order to compete.

    maydrakin got a reaction from Andrew3000 in EFL Verdict   
    The major issue for me isn’t the jurisdiction or the appeal, it’s the ongoing embargo that feels like it’s designed to strangle the club from moving forward.
    With what will be a poorly delivered preseason, we’ll be scraping the barrel to bring players in who are fit to compete with 2nd Division standard players.
    If wages are capped for us, then it’s shown that we can’t compete with the likes of Peterborough, never mind the West Brom’s of the division.
    Until they introduce a salary cap like in the 3rd and 4th Divisions, we pretty much are swimming against a faster moving tide every year.
    And we know that the salary cap will never come to fruition because the big boys in the top division will not like it and threaten to remove our share of the scraps.
