    europia reacted to Millenniumram in Half time poll: Wayne's thinking?   
    Definitely seems like Rooney made the decision to write the game off and rest players. That’s a disgrace imo. There’s no team in this division that much better than another, it’s been said a million times before - anyone can beat anyone. We should have been going into that game with at least the aim of getting a point. And even if it wasn’t a game we had the faintest hope in, then I would still expect us to at least try and pull off a miracle, not give the game up like we did yesterday - we looked beaten from the first whistle, which is no surprise when you put out such a weak and disorganised team. I’d go as far as to say that performance was actually disrespectful, the players seemed to have so little clue what they were doing it was like they hadn’t even been coached. 
    Rooney had better learn from his mistakes and not try that poo ever again. Last night was total managerial ineptitude, sending a team out so unprepared - the result is all on him. Shocking. Maybe if he actually used his subs a bit better in other games then he wouldn’t need to rest players? Regardless, if he wants to be a successful manager, then he’s going to have to set his teams up a lot better than last night, simple as that. Only one game of course, but too many like that and his managerial career will go down the drain.

    Yeah, I agree with Wayne. Lately we've had special takeover, special Joinersgate, special relationship with EFL etc etc.

    Lots of the Guardian's sport coverage is excellent. I'd read Times too if you didn't have to pay for it.

    I agree - I much prefer to look at the guardian and the times for sport. At least a bit of effort goes into their stories.

    Absolutely no faith whatsoever and if there is any legal mechanism Mel has to eliminate them from the process he should take it.

    I can fully accept that your opinion differs to my own, no problem with that. But please spare me the condescending 'shame on you' type comments. 
    The golden rule of any forum should be:   Criticise the post, not the poster.

    People suffer all kinds of personal problems that may effect their work. But the world doesn't stop for you. Some trades are more supportive than others. 
    Judging Tom Lawrence performances over 4 years shouldn't be effected by what personal issues he's had. That's a separate topic. 
    Would you accept my poo plastering if I was having personal problems? I'd expect not. Would shame be upon you if you didn't accept my work? 
    Balancing work and personal life is a stressful thing. But we all have to do it and not mix the two because they do not mix with good results.

    The comment was his performances have been largely average during his time here correctly or otherwise, he's been at the club for nearly 4 years now.

    The clown in the below video was on a recent episode of Rich Holiday, Poor Holiday on C5. Now I’m sure he’s got a bit more money than your average Joe, but being worth the £20m he claims is obviously bullpoo. He repeatedly said he was driving around in a Bentley when it was in fact a Chrysler 300c. Him and his business partner also discussed what kind of holiday they’d be going on whilst playing snooker, not on a full size table that you’d expect a wealthy person to have, but a 4”6 one stuck in his dining room!! He’s a fraud...
    My point is, our sheikh is obviously this type of guy. Trying to live a champagne lifestyle on a Lambrini budget...

    The actual purchase price isn't the only consideration. Yes it's a decent stadium with a fantastic fan base. The difficulty is the unsustainable operating costs, which is probably one of the primary reasons  Mr Morris ( a very wealthy man) wants out. Player wages are too high and most clubs are spending more than they are earning. Not sure how a change in ownership addresses this.

    Tend to agree. Lawrence has been at the club since 2017.  So it's fair to say that this player is unlikely to improve on what he has achieved to date. The performances have been mostly average since his arrival at DCFC. Probably time for Tom Lawrence to move on, but it's highly unlikely that we would get back even half of the (reported) £5m that we paid to Leicester City.

    Are people really claiming we miss our 0 goal, 0 assist winger who is notorious for poor decision making in build up and playing selfishly? Lawrence had a spell of being great last season, in the 13 games he's played of this one he's been crap.

    Not sure about the term 'investment'. The old adage 'if you want to make a small fortune in football, start off with a large fortune',  is more relevant now than it ever was.

    Reality is, the best owner to take this club forward is the one who is currently trying to sell up. Unfortunately things didn't work out as we all hoped, and despite a few errors along the way, Mr Morris gave it a real good go. Prospective new owners mentioned have no emotional association with the club, so we can only assume the motivation is financial gain. The business plan for turning profit from a loss making championship football club would make interesting reading indeed.
