    Got to disagree on this one. Buchanan is a decent prospect but not at the level Bogle is currently 👍

    I absolutely agree with all of the above but I wouldn't be at all surprised if one or all of them are sold and Wayne's brings in aging but budget replacements.

    Slightly odd that we are using a west mids team rather than a Derbyshire based outfit but there's obviously some reason for it.

    The thing with the academy is, for it to be worth the money, we either have to be getting useful first team players from it, or we need to be selling players to make a genuine profit.  Buchanan hasn't been amazing yet, but he's looked decent, and this season is the point where he should be kicking on and cementing his place in the first team.  If we sell him now for a couple of million, considering the academy costs while he's been here (£4m a year, or something like that), we're basically selling him for a loss.
    In legacy terms, the academy is basically the only bright spark in Mel's ownership. If we have to flog the best young prospects to cover the financial mess he's made everywhere else, then what has he achieved at all here? Literally nothing.

    It’s ok because I think they are both part of the kingdom of Mercia (according to FFP rules )

    Oh I see,it's me draining their confidence?
    As far as I'm aware I wasn't at the stadium last season where I would normally be...that goes for 28000 other people too,so I'm fairly sure that there may have been other factors involved.
    But funnily enough,I will be at every home game this time around and cheering on the lads from there as many of us do.
    The lads out there always get my unequivocal support,inept gaffers and bosses less so if they don't deserve it.
    I'll continue to question and deliberate on the issues that face us managerially both on the pitch and off it (if that's ok with you)
    You see being a fan means that you care about the club and its future and don't just hide away from the downsides...that way you enjoy the upsides even more rather than just blindly clapping away pretending it's all perfect.

    We can hardly draw a line under it whilst we are still in the middle of it,it's still there.
    Hiding our heads in the sand,pretending all is well is what led us into this situation.

    I recall one mod referring to anybody exploring the EFL case as not right minded.  Apart from the odd wum everybody here is 100% ram.  As in life in general it is a pretty healthy approach to challenge your principles by exploring contrary opinions.  Doesn’t mean you believe in them just because you feel the need to try to understand them.

    At least Clough’s last couple of seasons were out of necessity though, and the wage bill then was lower than it is now yet the squad’s currently a mess

    Phil Brown era was the most depressing for me. 
    Towards the end of the three amigo era when id had enough of them selling our best players for nowt & on the back of burley who had played wonderful stuff & worked miracles with the resources he had. We then appoint that clown that plays the goalkeeping coach & puts the assistant manager upfront. It was like when a pub team is short so the landlord and manager bring their boots for a game

    Exactly. You put it so well. The way I see it is that the powers that be, the owners of DCFC, are custodians of our great club, that is all. We as fans deserve openness and transparency as well as the right to question things when big decisions are made. We ask the questions and make our points known because we want the best for the club we love and support. We want the club to be run well both on and off the pitch and that will mean at times questions will be asked and some criticism made. However, come 3pm on a Saturday, after my 5 pints in the Brunswick, once I get to the ground I am 100% behind the owners, the manager and whatever players are chosen to play for that game. For me that is what being a football supporter is all about and is as valid as those fans that choose to accept without question every decision the owners and management make. As you say, confusing the two is totally missing the point👍

    I think what we have here is the classic confusion between supporting the team in person, and what people post online on a dedicated forum set up to deliver our verdicts.
    I'll hammer them on here, if they deserve it, yet I wouldn't act that way while at a game, and I suspect you all would behave similarly, judging on your previous posts?
    There's a world of difference between supporting the team in person, and talking about what we think is wrong on here, including being critical of individual players or management, and confusing the two insults the intelligence of many.
