  1. I have no idea how the EFL have decided that Hillsborough is worth £11m more than Pride Park
  2. The Derby player I can think of being the biggest icon for another club is Avi Nimni. He's a massive icon at Maccabi Tel Aviv and for Israeli football in general. He made 489 appearances for them, is their all-time leading scorer with 217 goals, and had his number 8 jersey retired by the club when he finished playing, an honour reserved only for a club's true legends and Jude Bellingham. Over here he only managed four appearances and one goal on loan from them. To be fair, that's a better record than the other player us and MTA have in common.
  3. Just that Mitrovic is on the bench
  4. Lampardesque team choice for the final
  5. That's just a fancy way of saying that he's done nothing but play Football Manager during lockdown
  6. Does anyone else have a completely unfounded feeling that Bournemouth are going to struggle next season, or is it just me?
  7. I do find the flare ups at the bottom of the table quite amusing: You've got Charlton saying that they deserve to stay up as Sheffield Wednesday should have had their point deduction last season, and should instead take their place You've got Wigan saying that they deserve to stay up as their administration was implemented on shaky grounds, so a point deduction would be unfair You've got Barnsley saying that they deserve to stay up as Wigan have entered administration, so they deserve their point deduction Then at the very bottom you've got Hull saying absolutely nothing and just accep
  8. Crosses blocked per 90: Lowe - 0.7 Bryan - 0.7 Henry - 0.8 Statistically he's roughly on par with them in that regard He also blocks more shots per 90 (0.4 vs. 0.2/0.3), blocks more passes per 90 (1 vs. 0.7/0.8) and makes more interceptions per 90 (1.9 vs. 1.3/1.2) than both of them
  9. I get why the likes of Charlton are kicking up over this, but realistically they shouldn't have been punished in 19/20, they should have been punished in 18/19. If Birmingham failed FFP in 17/18 and got their punishment the season after, then what's taken the EFL this long to decide Wednesday have also broken the rules? If Wednesday got sent down at the end of this year through a points deduction from rule breaks in the 17/18 season, they could just as easily complain that the EFL's slow response to the issue has seen them relegated in a later season where they would have been safe the season
  10. Quoting from: https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/nov/14/sheffield-wednesday-charged-efl-misconduct-hillsborough-sale-spending-rules "Wednesday sold Hillsborough for £60m to a company, Sheffield 3, owned by Chansiri, generating a £38m profit which, in turn, helped them record a pre-tax profit of £2.5m for 2017-18. Had the promotion-chasing club not sold their ground they would have posted a pre-tax loss of £35.4m for the financial year covering the 2017‑18 campaign. Considering they had lost £9.8m and £20.8m in the previous two seasons, Wednesday would have been well in excess
  11. Would have felt more at ease with our situation if they'd gotten away with it, but I think the panel's reasons are interesting: "The club was charged in November 2019 and referred to an independent Disciplinary Commission, which conducted a full hearing at the end of June 2020, before finding the Club guilty based on the fact that the Club should not have included profits from the sale of Hillsborough Stadium in the Club’s financial statements for the period ending July 2018. The club was found not guilty of a further charge of breaching its duty of utmost good faith to the EFL by de

    11 goals in 33 apps, all from open play, making him Charlton's joint top scorer with Lyle Taylor. It's his first season at this level after moving from non-league, where he had a 1 in 2 goalscoring record. Would likely be fairly cheap, Charlton only spent £200k to bring him in a year ago, and they aren't in the best condition as a club at the moment and may have to sell.
  14. £4.75m, originally £7.6m, but they managed to get it lowered Seeing as this is a club willing to chuck four times that amount at Dominic Solanke, I don't think they were too wounded by the punishment
