Well, one thing's for certain... It won't be me asking! I'd struggle to word the question right, and certainly wouldn't understand whatever response we get... much like most of this thread!
I'll stick to the more important stuff, like asking for a single queue for multiple adjacent kiosk tills, as I'm sick of always choosing the wrong queue!
It works in the Ticket office!

Hopefully the players still have belief in their abilities, even if some fans have given up on them as usual.
We have a very good chance of making the play offs, with a game in hand a top 6 place is ours to lose.
Favourable fixtures to play and players back from injury after the break, excuse my confidence in what this team can achieve.
By the way, that’s not being “deluded”, just what the situation is right now.
Hey, at least you got your I told your so in nice and early if we don’t finish top 6, that will be a nice one to quote and pat your back in May.
Keep smiling! 😊

Spent a couple of hours looking at our rivals Forum sites. Most Westbrom fans seemed to have resigned themselves to the play-offs and don,t want Villa in either semi's or final. Most M'Boro fans want Pulis out and are moaning about all the teams closing in on them in the play-off positions. Most Villa fans think they are home and dry for a play-off spot and are looking at 5th more 6th place. Majority of Preston fans are happy what they have acheived and want to remain under the radar. But quite a few don't think they will get into the play-offs. Bristol fans are resigned to championship football next season and most are predicting the team will finish between 8th and 12th. Sheffield Weds fans seem to split between romping into the top 6 to glory and others feel the next set of fixtures will kill their season off, but are still happy, due to being miles away from a relegation battle. Forest fans are annoyed that the club should be higher in the league with all the money they spent in the summer. Only a few still think they can get into the play-offs. Not many Hull fans are talking of promotion. Birmingham fans have resigned to not being in the race and are more concerned about possible points reduction through FFP. A few Brentford fans are still talking of promotion and are pointing out their goal diff is worth a point.

He didn't criticise, nor does he sound "envious" in the slightest. Their super agent allowed them to buy players on the cheap that should have cost much more. However the same agent then tried to help Forest and look where that has got them so far. Wolves just seem to be a very well run club in all departments at the moment and it has allowed everything to come together to achieve promotion and then be more than competitive in the Prem. Wish we could do the same.

Money into moor farm is an investment though not a loss which he chose to do
if things were that bad, why spend the money
I’m not here for tit for tat argument bud just saying I don’t believe what I read in the half the nationals as majority of the time it’s a load of crap
The club and Mel made their statement re open to outside investment, works for me
he’s a businessman why wouldn’t he
all football clubs hemorage money, I think we’re now one of the more stable ones, debt free, own our own ground, cat 1 academy which we own, land around the ground, we’re not in a bad spot generally speaking .. if u exclude mr rushes exploits and the fall out from that which we are still feeling the effects of lol

So just got home.
Really unlucky not to get the 3 points, personally think it was one of our best performances all season as a team, some really good individual performances from Lawrence, Malone, Holmes and Bogle who looks back too his best, no matter where we finish It would be nice for us to preform like that for the remaining games just score 2 or 3!! Can’t really fault anything though! Nice to see the young lads getting a run out sure Mel will be happy to see his big investment in the youth squad finally be used!
Roos 8 didn’t have much to do, comands his box well
Bogle 9 brilliant kept McLean in his pocket very strong going forward
Keogh 8 solid as always
Tomori 8 makes little mistakes but his pace always helps him make up for it, got a massive future
Malone 8 big fan, gets forward well wins headers settled in well
Johnson 7 battled well did the ugly stuff always seemed to be their
Huddlestone 7 calm composed doesn’t give the ball away as much playing further forward! Worked well
Holmes 9 brilliant little player, snip at his price so calm on the ball always sticks to his feet.
Wilson 7 works hard just needs a goal to get him going again
Lawrence 9 worked his socks of battled for everything even with him not being 100% fit, runs with the ball something we need!
Waghorn 7 battled but hard up against 2 cavemen!
Ratings like we won but unfortunately we didn’t but plenty to build on! COYR

I think the positives for Johnson far outweigh the negatives for what we currently need. Yes he does the give the ball away but mostly in attempting to be positive. He has had many good games for us. That run under Mac2 as dm was immense. He had some great games earlier on this season and has been vital to digging us out of this poor form the last two games.
The problem is Bryson just does the simple these days, he won't give the ball away because he never plays a risky pass. But these passes don't achieve anything because when the space does open up, he can't turn and move it forward. I find Bryson far more frustrating.
In too many games you could fail to notice Bryson on the pitch, but not in a good way. You pretty much always know Johnson is there, his failings become obvious because he tries to impose himself on the game.
Neither are the long term solution to our midfield. And I don't think either will be here next season. But on performances this season, Johnson is the far more likely to get a new deal.
We have a great chance this summer to finally rework our midfield, it would be foolish to let nostalgia get in the way.

Am feeling so unsettled. I keep telling myself it’s all about Brexit and my ire with politicians of every colour
but deep down it’s because we aren’t creating enough chances we we don’t look dangerous enough up front.
Just off Burton Road

Even when i did manage to get in once, it was impossible to get to the bar, so i gave up and left.
the problem with PP it that the concourses are grim. Ok no worse than most other grounds but the whole thing looks like the interior of a prison. All concrete and painted blockwork. There's hardly anywhere to even put a drink down. Certainly nowhere to sit. Its locked into a pre-hillsborough "all fans are potentially violent idiots " mindset.

Can't believe someone set up a gofundme for this idiot to raise money for him while he is inside.
Hopefully no one donated but I dare bet they did.
I really do think this guy is going to get treated like a hero by some when he gets out. Very sad.
