    Tyler Durden got a reaction from RadioactiveWaste in Half of all Championship clubs on the brink of collapse   
    I don't understand point 3 unless I'm being thick. What would teams play for every year in the Championship if there was no possibility of promotion? Sounds like they would just be existing.
    I never liked the idea of a closed shop to be fair.

    For one season it wouldn't have much of an impact. But over time, the crap clubs opt to spend less and less to make more and more profit. Overall quality declines followed by fewer viewers and less sponsorship money.

    Derby College are going back in tomorrow. All students were asked to have covid tests on Friday and today.
    In my lad's class of 13, only him and one other have taken tests. Absolute waste of time.
    Wait for the inevitable spike.

    Playing for the football league championship.
    What is any football club really playing for, other than to be champions of a particular season.
    Football never ends, so it's all pointless ultimately other than to provide entertainment and a source of belonging to something.

    Tyler Durden got a reaction from BrudeRAM in Why have we been getting worse in recent weeks?   
    Cos you can't keep scabbing a goal then defending a lead for ever, sooner or later the opposition will score first and then we have no answer. 
    If we concede first then at the very, very best we will get just one point out of the game. History has shown this.

    Yer but that's like saying I'd prefer to go on holiday to Skeggy over Bali every time as hotels and meals in restaurants are a lot cheaper there. 
    The Championship is a total misnomer. It's just all so boring.

    Tyler Durden reacted to TigerTedd in Lampard   
    This made me think about signings in particular, and I realised we haven't really had decent recruitment since Clough. I remeber at the time people bemoaning his loyalty to his back room staff, that they weren't at this level, and his brother as head of recruitment. But I honestly can't think of any signings since that compare with the likes of Martin, Bryson, Russell, Keogh, Eustace for longevity and effecriveness. Even Mac's success was built around Clough's signings, and any other memorable players we've had in the intervening years have come from the academy.

    Tyler Durden got a reaction from VulcanRam in We will survive????   
    I'm of the same opinion now tbf if our destiny is in League 1 then we'll deserve it due to all our pissing around for the previous few seasons with fiduciary mismanagement, revolving door of managers, spats with the EFL, selling our ground etc and all our chickens will have come home to roost. 
    If we can't stay out of the bottom 3 over the course of the season then we'll be there on merit.

    Tyler Durden got a reaction from europia in Are we now living in the parallel universe where we never got Jim Smith?   
    Pickering didn't have to sell our ground so no. 
    I know it's easy for time to smooth over some of the more pertinent facts but I can't recall Pickering doing anything as remotely as divisive as Morris has and there's lots to choose from. 
    Both invested their own personal fortunes in the club, Pickering was handicapped by other clubs knowing we were loaded so when we went enquiring for players they doubled the asking price so we were done over that way. With Morris we just seemed to happy to randomly spunk money up the wall without any thought or consideration or rationale, Johnson sticks out as a prime example.

    I don't have the answer but Rooney needs to start finding the answer himself now.
    He's been pitched in as a rookie manager but this is the time when he needs to show whether he has the nous, tactical acumen or sheer force of will to start turning this round.

    I've already said in other threads that if we do stay up this season and that's a big if then we're only kicking the can down the road - we could potentially be without Waghorn next season and I'm not his greatest fan and other players out of contract in the summer. 
    So if we think this season was a struggle then by God next season is going to be the same if not worse without some significant spend on players. If there's still no clarity with the takeover then that ain't going to happen. 
    We really are in a huge mess and the previous failings to get promotion and fiduciary mismanagement are coming home to roost with avengance.

    Loanees appear to be a classic quantity over quality scattergun approach of get enough players in and one will probably be ok.
    In this case the ok one is Edmundson.
    If CKR ever gets injured Jesus wept if we thought we had problems now.

    If the clubs vision is to be Top 6 next season then where's the road map supporting this? We can't even get a new buyer in and Morris will only support the day to day running of the club in the interim.
    If the vision is Top 6 in general then again where's the short, medium and long terms objectives to underpin this? Get a new buyer in then just see what happens from there? Great plan.

    Tyler Durden reacted to VulcanRam in We will survive????   
    I think we probably will only because Rotherham or Birmingham will have to suddenly start winning games in a row, which is unlikely, while I imagine we will pick up enough points here and there.
    But I can't say I'm confident and if I'm honest, I can't say that I'm overly bothered. If after 46 games we finish in the bottom three, we will well and truly have deserved it. 
    I know people will say going down will be financially disastrous, but I'd argue continuing to play in the Championship under current circumstances would be more so.
    Everything just depends on whether Mel can shift the club.
    I'll still be watching next season regardless.

    Whether we stay up this season or not is just delaying our stay of execution.
    Without significant expenditure on players in the summer then we'll just be in the same position next season and with a new buyer being as likely as rocking horse poo then that ain't going to happen.
