    We're in SW upper, it's got a good view and good atmosphere without having to stand up all game and at a cheap price. 
    One extra bonus is that although it is usually fairly full in there, your friends can usually get individual seats and on the day you can all sit together in the empty seats of the adjacent west stand wing.

    Agreed, but there's a full programme of matches this week, the following week's game against Millwall is the game in hand. By then we'll have the Wigan game in hand as well.

    Agreed, Johnson got a 5 game ban for not biting a player and he gets off scott free causing horrific facial injuries to a player. And he's got previous.

    I think 3 at the back would work well with our players. 
    Firstly, our full backs are better going forward rather than defending. Secondly, our wide men are not out and out wingers and would prefer to play more inside.

    1 game for a professional foul, 3 games for serious foul play {violent}.

    Including the Hull fixture, we'll be on a run of 8 fixtures where 6 of them are against teams with better form than ourselves. One of the 2 below us in the form table being the dirties. 
    We seem to be playing against teams who are playing well irrespective of their league position. 
    Incidentally, we are bang in the middle of the form table, so you would expect an equal split.

    We are a side in transition, because of what happened 3 years ago. Next season we can proceed with a rebuild and with a healthy budget. This season is a case of adhering to ffp and at the same time trying to fluke promotion. 
    This transfer window has shown that we are right on the edge, ffp wise.

    After seeing the team today, I'm happy with the draw. Add Marriott up front, Mount and Holmes in midfield and I think we would have been a lot better.

    I agree, so far it smacks of desperation to get money in and reduce overheads. Hopefully, I'm wrong and there is a plan to go forward.
    Considering our league position now, I think that it would be better to give a go and then if we don't get promoted have a fire sale after the season finishes and before our accounts year end.

    Doubt it will be on TV, so we should get a good following. 
    The first 5 games all look more interesting.

    I think they've changed the rules now, if a champions league team wins, the place goes to the next highest Premier league team. 
    I think it was after Cardiff qualified that way a  few years back.

    I think that they keep replays in the 3rd and 4th rounds so that if a little club is drawn at home to a big one, then they've got a chance of a replay and a big payday.

    Poor draw from a money point of view. An away draw at Man U would have brought in big gate receipts and TV money, an easy home tie would have meant prize money and more money from the quarters. 
    It may make a difference to a possible loan signing.

    Well that's that then. Hope you all had a great experience at the Wham. We don't have much but I hope you found us a friendly, welcoming club. That's our aim! 
    I could see some of the fans shocked faces when they first saw our facilities/ surroundings  but I think most went away happy. Thanks for being part of our record attendance too.
    Good Luck in the next round !!

    It’s always been magical for me... I remember a debate a few months back which was an fa Cup win or promotion, I’d take fa Cup win every day! The last and only time we have won it was the year my grandad was born, I’ve seen us gain promotion but the majority of us won’t have seen a Cup win... it’s special.

    ram59 reacted to angieram in Executive Chairman Mel Morris, CBE speaks.   
    I'm pleased he acknowledged what a big outlay our season ticket is for most of us. 
    Watching the "let me be one of the first eleven!" brigade jostling for position on social media annoys me. I hope such people are grateful they can afford to renew first day without a second thought. 
    I will have my money together before the deadline, but it's a big outlay and I have to decide what I can do without to keep going home and away.
    Back on topic, I enjoyed the interview and am always impressed with Mel's communication. I am sorry some dislike him so much; I think he always has our club at heart.

    I've never been his greatest fan and would have kept Christie, but I thought that when he had to play lb on his wrong peg, he had the best game I can remember. He got forward more than ever and put in some great crosses with his left leg.
