If there's a ghost in the club machine, it's the bungled history of Tony Pony's stewardship.

And the spectre at the feast must be old Saggy Chops, having ordered 4 number 10s, an over-seasoned centreback, and changing his mind as soon as what he asked for arrives.

I'm seeing a makeshift, eager and competitive team - probably just below par.

It may be too late in the narrative of the season, but reports of our fecklessness are being wildly exaggerated.

QFT, that said, even on the field he's pretty ridiculous.

Think we can read the switch from Twitter to IG as one that points away from the spokesman role that Twitter creates heat around, and towards a kind of global celeb glossy environment. Which is about deliberately being less publicly accountable to fans and media - so best to read the Remy posts as j...

Whingers? People disagree, grow a pair son. Rio was an elegant centreback, very comfortable on the ball, who relied on a yard of pace to be at the top of his game. You have to factor in potential attitude drops, lack of hunger etc. The loss of pace and stamina to cover all that ground. The amount of...

Yeah, we definitely need to protect Clint Hill from the global media spotlight, I'm worried for him

Rio relied on his pace, he wasn't strongest or the best reader of the game; none of this goes for either Nelsen or Dunne.

(Warning this link takes you to the Daily Heil.) But good to see we're learning our lessons. Maybe if Rio, Dunne and Clint would literally carry one another, we could register them all as one player?

A serious question do you think Harry will watch the game? He should really as Yun & Clint are our only left backs, but I bet he doesn't I bet he's on a promise with Sandra or playing championship manager checking out defenders in the Iranian national league or something. :lol: Cherno Samba 'Arry, ...

A slight aside, but just generally, it would be really good for the club to have close relations with a journalist who is responsible to us, his or her readers, not to the club. Am I correct in thinking we don't have someone like that? Dave McIntyre was the last of these kind of guys to be allowed t...

Seeing as how the Bosman ruling exists, most likely not. Ah, so yeah, you run the risk of losing your investment in a year or two. However you have some time to turn the player around if you can block a transfer in a given window. Tf's supposed to be charming y'know, according to his PR team at lea...

Huh, now reading a sports law writer saying: "In the author’s opinion, a buy-out clause cannot be automatically triggered in a way that would guarantee the transfer of an under contract player away from a club without problems if the club disagrees with the interpretation of the clause. As a rule, t...

The Suarez case was interesting: he had a release clause set at £40m which was triggered by an Arsenal offer, but the club refused to sell. John Henry told the media that having lost Torres previously and against the club's will, they simply decided to stick to their guns in the case of Suarez, giv...
