  1. Luton slowly dragging themselves into the fight for survival. 2.0 up at Huddersfield.
  2. I'm more interested in who he follows himself. Certainly likes his porn by the looks of it!
  3. Luton winning at Leeds now!
  4. I see they're losing again tonight. Seem to be hitting a terrible run just when all others around them are picking up points. God I hope they go down!
  5. No idea what's gone wrong with this guy but given his position and pedigree surely worth a trial if he's willing? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Buckley-Ricketts
  6. Completely agree but times have changed since then. Small transfer fees for young players who are unlikely to ever make the first team of premier/championship clubs don't interest those clubs at all given the stupid amount of tv money that they get. Unless you're talking a million or above, hoarding young talent just in case one becomes the next star appears to be the order of the day.
  7. Would it make a difference to have buckets inside the ticket office on match days so that those buying tickets without the correct cash can easily throw their change in on their way out if they wanted to? Or is that too 'in your face'?
  8. Surely, if they play 3 big centre halves, the tactical nous would say not to put pope up against all 3 in a battle which he invariably lose, but to play the ball on the floor with a more mobile striker or strikers?
  9. I thought that we were the better team for 65 minutes. That said, our midfield looked very leggy. Whether that was the heavy pitch or tiredness I don't know, but they always seemed to have a man free in the middle, which hasn't been the case for most of the season. Joyce was deserved motm. First half he was very influential. Amoo looked excellent going forward in the first half, but was frustrating the hell out of me with his defensive efforts and not committing at all to balls that were there to be won. Cullen led the line well again first half, and scored. Not much more you can ask of a striker. All of the team were below par in the second half. I thought the intro of their number 29 made a big difference. He was pressing our back line constantly which we didn't like one bit. I don't think pope would have come on had askey waited for the corner to be taken and we'd scored from it. He was clearly going for the win by going 2 up top. When we scored he almost immediately brought on another midfielder for Cullen. Those who are trying to credit pope with an assist merely from his presence on the pitch need to have a word with yourselves! They did the same at Crewe. No wonder the guys got a God complex! He was poor after he came on, won nothing, and his only contributions were giving away a stupid foul and screaming vehemently our back line after we conceded. Gibbons distribution was shocking today. Poor second half from most. With manny, agree that he's clearly unfit. Is it not an option to loan him to the division below for a month to get him games? We're back in the playoffs and it's in our hands. Can we do it? Of course. Will we? Who knows? Whatever happens, I'm pleased as punch with our progress this season and, with sensible quality recruitment in the summer, have high hopes for next season. UTV
  10. Increased wages - not obligatory Increased security - on what basis? Ground improvement - on what basis? Travel costs - what?! Ground safety - on what basis? Better pitch - what?! Better facilities for supporters - not obligatory Better ticketing system - not obligatory
  11. Ok I'll bite - what obligatory increased costs are there to a promoted club within the league structure? The parachute payment clearly has a reason, viz the vast difference in tv income between the prem and the championship. If it wasn't for the parachute payment most relegated clubs would be bankrupt within 18 months.
