  1. One of my best mates is a Brentford fan and I couldn't be more chuffed for you all. A model club who had a plan and saw it through. I reckon you'll ruffle a few feathers next year. Staying up will be tough, but you'll surprise a few teams along the way.
  2. He's just made a documentary about weirdo pop group Sparks. Looks good! Trailer:
  3. I work for an independent cinema, without the furlough scheme, I would have been out of a job a loooooong time ago.
  4. https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/15109347/man-city-cook-takeover-rooney-Derby/ Brighton are interested this summer apparently
  5. Didn’t he say the same about Max Bird as well? Rooney’s man management might need improvement.
  6. Yeah, I get you. What I meant that all these clubs selling their stadiums to balance the books is a symptom of a bigger problem. The EFL twiddle their thumbs while clubs go down the drain. It's clearly not solely their fault, but they are certainly partly responsible.
  7. Symptom of a bigger problem. The EFL arent clever enough to realise though.
  8. Is that Is that a CGI rendering of the welcoming party for the new owners? Sam Rush on bass, Alonso on drums, and Khaled of Bin Zayed on vocals singing "(Fake) Sheik, Rattle and Roll" .
  9. Love this! 👏 I recently moved to Abingdon and have considered taking in some of the delights of non-League football round here. I was shocked to discover recently that Abingdon Town FC were established in 1870!
  10. We really need the complete package right now. We need ownership who are good at business AND establishing a footballing identity which will lead to progress on the pitch. Considering our financial plight, and the fact that those kind of owners are rare (and likely looking elsewhere), I struggle to see how any takeover of the club will lead to any short-term prosperity. It's gonna be a long, slow trudge before we see Derby resembling anything like a well-run football club.
  11. I would love it if Derby used this current existential nightmare to re-launch as a democraticaly ran club (51%) owned by the fans. I just can't see a pathway to that happening though.
  12. If the club folded, what would you do? Stop following football entirely? Become a football fan (no allegiance to one team, but keep watching)? Support another club?
  13. I think the phrase is "If a tree falls in a Forest, and no one is around to hear it, will it still remind everyone that they won back-to-back European Cups in the late 1970s"
  14. Does the EFL have a head office? If so, I wonder if a healthy dose of civil unrest/peaceful protest outside their headquarters protesting against their incompetence is in order? Obviously our chairman is no saint, but the EFL have shown again and again that they'd rather make football fans suffer than admit they did anything wrong.
