    Grimbeard reacted to G STAR RAM in Radio Derby   
    Who was going to do Sportscene talk in? Hasnt the mob got their wish and Ramage been sacked?
    Why should Radio Derby apologise?
    Ramage was giving his own opinion as a freelance journalist and has apologised for it.

    It's a Leeds thread, so stands to reason I was talking about Leeds.

    To be fair, it was a McDonald's breakfast, which is effectively a burger.

    Ketchup on a breakfast? You put brown sauce on a breakfast. Ketchup is for burgers and people aged under 16.

    I think all of us at the top have bottled it in lieu of the team doing so.

    OK. You've convinced me, I'll trade in my cynicism for a dose of healthy scepticism and go with your idea instead. 🤩

    They let Liverpool play two games in one day. I don't think this will bother the FA - especially if it's a non Prem League team involved.
    The EFL will probably move the playoff final closer to the FA cup final out of spite of we got to both.

    For me it should be simple. If an Owner is prepared to cover any losses made and can demonstrate that they are prepared to cover them without any requirement for them being paid back then they should be fine. If the losses are elsewhere, loans, banks etc then FFP should kick in.

    Manchester City are a medium sized club, perhaps bigger than Derby, but certainly no bigger than the likes of Everton, Newcastle or Leeds. They have owners who have invested not only in the first team and bringing them Premier League titles and historically good teams, but also in an academy infrastructure and marketing approach that will see them eventually stand on their own two feet alongside the 'historically' successful sides. 
    The key is the word 'historically'. People follow Man Utd and Liverpool worldwide for no other reason that they were successful at the key points in history when football went through surges due to a greater reach. If teams are no longer afforded the opportunity to complete with these on a financial standpoint then the status quo will never change, perhaps that is what the hierarchy want - it allows them to eventually peddle the line that a domestic league is no longer fit for purposes for the elite sides in order to continue growth then a European league needs to created with no relegation, i.e. an NFL version of European football. The money afforded to the chosen clubs, i.e. United/Liverpool/Real/Barcelona, would eclipse what they're able to bring in now. Money focuses the direction of travel in all walks of life. 
    I am totally against FFP in its current form, because the punishments are ironically heavy fines and it doesn't even necessarily impact the biggest spenders and clubs with the biggest wage bill. It's not financial fair play - it's a vehicle to keep status quo. The most off putting part of football.

    I think I'm in the minority when I say I'm not enjoying it at all.
    They're supposed to wait until Easter and then collapse before missing out in the playoffs.
    They're ruining it for everybody.

    Can see it happening in front of my own eyes and there’s nothing I can do to stop it...
    We are decent for the best part of a decade and narrowly miss out of promotion multiple times... then some fat Greek bakery bomber buys Forest, they employ Louis Spence to manage them and they poohouse promotion first time they are not completely hopeless in years. 
    Im not here for this timeline.

    If we get anywhere near the playoffs we'll get a 10 point deduction. If we stay midtable we'll start next season on minus 10 points.
    It's the EFL way innit?

    This didnt age very well...

    The spade was out by this point...
    Oh dear...
    Bringing on defensive players is not always a negative mood. Sometimes its about getting more control of the ball
    Fair play, you came back on and admitted youd made a bit of a mistake 👍
    Oh no, just when it looked like you had redeemed yourself...
    Its probably because the more sensible fans were prepared to give the subs some time to see how they affected the game rather than just jumping in 2 footed...
