Re: Leicester... FFP Resolution

The Leicester situation seems all very hugger mugger - “no further statements will be made regarding this decision”. It would appear that the FL are prepared to adapt their position when it suits them whilst remaining stoney faced when it comes to QPR.

Re: Leicester... FFP Resolution

I'm a bit puzzled re the Leicester situation. I thought they are out of the jurisdiction of the EFL and could only be punished if they were relegated back into the Championship.

Re: Leicester... FFP Resolution

I can see now why our situation is taking so long to resolve. There is no way we should be paying ten times what Leicester did for the same crime. Hope our lawyers show the FL that our fine is totally disproportionate and settle for a lot less. If not we need to fight them all the way till they see...

Re: Leicester... FFP Resolution

I think they made a loss of over 20 million but most of it was shown to be on the academy and “promotions” whatever that means. I guess our loss was all transfers and wages so we copped it for the whole amount. As much as I hate FFP it's amazing how the owners just kept ploughing on knowing full wel...

Re: Pay at the BBC

Satch - I wasnt aware the BBC was costing the taxpayer anything. I though their funding was solely by the licence fee or perhaps selling the rights to programmes they own. Surely their period dramas would fetch a few quid overseas and box set sales etc? Wouldn’t that be marvellous but no, the BBC i...

Re: Match Thread: Sheffield United v Queens Park Rangers FC

People used to say that if a side was very poor away from home it indicated a lack of character in the team. This team, however seems to be full of fight so it must be due to tactics and team selection.

Re: Match Thread: Sheffield United v Queens Park Rangers FC

All in all, sounds like a decent show. Hopefully, Smyth will start against Florist and Robinson will be back - not too badly injured by all accounts. Chins up !

Sheffield

Anyone give us a chance against Chef United ? A tough game but I fancy us for a draw. Holloway is conservative with a small c, so I reckon he'll retain Washington ahead of Smyth and be rewarded with a goal from him. 1-1.

Re: Forever Rs

And the undoing of Gerry Francis. But he gives me the impression that he’s annoyed about being loved less than Stan (who admittedly, is my personal fave, albeit an age thing). In answer to the original question, I’m not sure of whose already in, I’ve not kept track and not aware of any list, so dif...

Re: Forever Rs

When you look at the inductees it makes you realise how lucky we've been, as a small club, to have had such people on our books. There can't be many clubs of our size that have had such a panoply of talent.

I always enjoy the halftime inductions - better than listening to banal pop music. Who would you like to be inducted soon ? I hadn't realised Mike Keen had died, he would have been one of my choices.

Re: Wishy washy

It looks like our future will be ever thus. With the constraints of FFP and with gates averaging about 13-14 thousand we will always be making a loss. The only unknown is how much the loss will be and whether we can keep it within the savage FFP rules. My mate in Australia writes to say he hopes som...

Re: Wzsolek...

Going back to him playing the wing back role, the problem we have is that if he plays as an out and out winger then we have to change the formation and so have to play a right back meaning we lose someone further up the field. If we play one up front then what's the point of having a winger with no...
