Season tickets - who’s renewing?

Nearly 80% yes or maybe (13%). If that’s representative of the wider fan base, that’s pretty good given what’s gone before and, potentially , what lies ahead.

How does Les Ferdinand get away with it?
at 21:37 30 Jul 2022

There's been some debate on other threads about LF.

Les was appointed DoF in Feb 2015. We were relegated, bottom. Burnley and Hull were relegated with us.

We left behind the likes of Aston Villa and Newcastle, who have been relegated since but are back in the Premier League. There were Stoke and West Brom who, although now in the Championship, stayed in the Premier League for a few more seasons before getting relegated.

Sunderland survived that year.

Leicester had been promoted with us the previous season.

Crystal Palace had survived their first season.

In the Championship that season were Bournemouth, Watford, Norwich, Middlesbrough, Brentford, Wolves, Cardiff, Forest, Leeds, Fulham.

Sheff Utd were in league One.

Clubs have been relegated with big wage bills, but promoted since. Clubs have traded their way to the Premier League. Clubs have produced academy players they've sold for big money.

We've wasted parachute money, we've sold one player for big money, and had smaller wins with a couple more. We've let Manning, and BOS slip through our fingers for nothing. Our academy hasn't produced a player who's been sold for money under LF's watch.

The best striker we've had is a bloke we borrowed twice who had a two month purple patch.

Looking at that list, Sunderland and Hull have done worse than us.

Burnley, Newcastle, Leicester, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, Watford, Norwich, Brentford, Wolves, Fulham and Sheff Utd have all done significantly better. I think you can add Cardiff, West Brom and Stoke to that list. Villa, Leeds and Forest are all in the Premier League now.

Different clubs with different ways of doing things, but all more successful than us, even though we had the advantage of Premier League money / parachute money over many of them back then.

How can anyone claim LF is doing a good job? I'm genuinely interested. I can't fathom it.

Any progress on Warren Farm?
at 09:04 6 Mar 2019

Has there been any progress on the training ground? I would have thought, particularly over the last couple of months, the club would have been quite vocal on progress as a ‘good news story’. It’s been five months since the final appeal was rejected, but I don’t think there’s been any updates?

Great ball from Ned

.......for the winner.

He's taken plenty of stick, lots of it justified IMO, but credit where it's due, that was a great ball

Thinks it would be interesting apparently. Bit light on players of course!

Didn't realise our ex-bench warmer is now at Cardiff.

He's 33, and apart from a couple of years with Bohemians, he's had a 16 year career in England and made the grand total of 57 appearances according to Wiki. Weirdly impressive to have had such a long career without actually playing.

Requested his £2m bonus for keeping Palace in the Premier League early, then walked out. Classy. Football really is a sewer.
TF Worst 11

Following on from PunteR's best 11.

Not a dig at TF, more some of the managers he's employed. Based upon Value for Money:


Ferdinand (Rio)



Subs: Cesar / Ferdinand (Anton) / Kranjcar

Depressing. How much did that lot cost?
